H. M. Cake to Hold Southwest
, Corner of Fourteenth and
Washington as Investment.
BUILDING 2-STORY FRAME
Tortland Attorney Compares Value
of Property With Other Cities
L" and Announces Confidence
In Prosperous Future.
What is regarded as a keynote realty
transaction was concluded in Portland
yesterday when H. M. Cake, a promi
nent attorney, bought . the southwest
corner of Fourteenth and Washington
streets from George E. Jacobs for a
cash consideration understood to be be
tween $75,000 and $85,000.
The property has a frontage of 100
feet 'on Washington street at a crest
of that leading thoroughfare, and of
60 feet on Fourteenth street. It Is
covered with an old two-story frame
building, which Mr. Jacobs bought with
the property three or four years ago.
Mr. Cake was represented in the
negotiations by the F. E. Taylor Com
pany and Mr. Jacobs by Philip W. Fry,
of the Fred A. Jacobs Company. The
purchaser has not yet determined how
soon he will improve the property but
indicates that he will hold it for the
time being as an investment.
Bright Future la Predicted.
"In the purchase of the Washington
street property, am carrying out a
policy which 1 always have adhered to,
namely, buying when property was at
bedrock and there was little market
fcr real esate." said Mr. Cake yester
day. "While there has been much de
preciation in real estate and the Port
land property holder has become ex
ceedingly pessimistic, 1 am fully con
vinced in my own mind that the
future of Portland was never brighter
nor more certain than today, nor have
prospects for a permanent increase in
value ever been greater than at the
"A comparison of values with Los
Angeles for instance, would show that
a corner in Los Angeles corresponding
to that at Fourteenth and Washington
streets would be worth from $250,000 to
J300.000. The stability and prospects
or i-oruana are greater, in my opinion,
than those of Los Angeles because of
United States Expected to Lead.
"Every advancement in population
and development of the Inland Empire
must necessarily redound to Portland's
growth, and this great area, embracing
Eastern Washington, Oregon and West
ern Idaho, is only coming into its own.
"In the near future, we may look for
ward to a marvelous growth in this
eection and an increase of population
justilied by Its resources and possibili
ties. "I do not share in the ultra conserva
tion of some of our good citizens, that
we must share in the loss resulting
from the great European struggle, but
believe that, situated as the United
States is, with its great resources and
population unimpaired, it will take the
lead in the next 20 years in the
economic, commercial and industrial
affairs of the world. This will mean
great development and prosperity for
our Western states, the recovery of the
lumber industry on the Pacific Coast
and the growth and development of the
City of Portland. I may be wrong in
iny prognostications of the future, but
I am willing to back my opinions with
