11 stores and shops on the ground
floor and 64 offices and three lodge
halls on the upper floors. It is inti-
. mated that Mr. Rosenberg plans ex

Because of its location at one of
t'ne most important Intersections of
the downtown district, where there
is heavy pedestrian and street car
traffic due to the converging of so
many car lines and the proximity of
the Morrison street bridge, the Alisky
building ranks among the most
popular retail corners in Portland.
Building; Krtoied In 1016.
Following a sensational fire which
destroyed the original structure, the
new Alisky building was erected In
-the spring of 1916. At that time the
annex, which covers only 30x70 feet
of the ground area, was remodeled.
The three lodge halls are located in
the annex. The ground floor space
at present is occupied by retail stores,
a moving picture theater and' shops.
Yesterday's lease is one of the
largest transactions consummated in
recent years. Taken with the recent
leases at Sixth and 'Washington and
Broadway and Washington it is in
terpreted by realtors as further proof
that Portland realty is today in
"healthier condition than it has been
for many years.

VISTA HOUSE CASE ENDS
TEX DAYS GIVEX COUXSEL TO
Dispute Involves Right of County
to Erect Structure With
' Public Money.
With closing arguments by eight
attorneys representing various indi
viduals Involved in the suit of Nora
Withrow and others against those of
ficials and contractos connected with
the erection of the Vista house on the
Columbia hignway, the two days"
hearing of the case ended yesterday
and was taken under advisement vby
Judge Tucker. Ten days were al
lowed for filing briefs. The right of
the county commissioners to erect
such a structure with the people's
money is being questioned.
Attorneys for the defendants point
ed out that the county commissioners
have the right to erect such public
buildings as may be for the official
use of the county and they contended
thaw the Vista house comes within
"Admitting, for the sale of argu
ment, that the building is for the
purpose set forth by the plaintiffs, a
memorial and an observatory," said
Judge M. L. Pipes, appearing for the
architect, "Nora Withrow is actually
appearing against the people of the
county and should be entitled to the
return of only her share of the money
expended, which would be extremely
small. She cannot appear in behalf
of the taxpayers as the case stands
now, but must show, by fact and not
fiction that she represents them."
Other counsel for the defense also
attempted to show that the suit was
not brought, in good faith. S. L.
Bischoff early in the day introduced
motion that the case be dismissed
on the ground that Mrs. Withrow had
signed the complaint at the instiga
tion of one of her attorneys.
James E. Fenton and Walter T.
McQuirk, who appeared for the plain
tiff, declared that the very name of
the building proved that its prime
purpose was not as a comfort station.
Attention was called to the panels
dedicated to Oregon pioneers. They
said that no excuse could be offered
for the erection of the upper part ot
the building and that the structure
as a whole cannot be considered part
of the highway.

Olcott Returns From 1000
Mile Flight Jubilant Over
SALEM. Or., May 27. (Special.)
That Oregon stands high with the
government, army and air officials
because of the interest taken by its
people in promoting and making pos
sible the airplane forest fire patrol
and its attendant means of rapid
transportation was the word brought
here today by Governor Olcott, who
made the flight of more than 1000
miles from Blaine, Wash., to Stock
ton, Cal., in a DeHaviland machine
piloted by Lieutenant R. M. Kelly.
The actual flying time, as recorded by
the pilot, was ten hours.
On the day following his arrival
at Stockton the governor resumed his
flight to Presidio, San Francisco.
where he met Lieutenant-General Lig
gett or ttie united States army; Colo
nel H. H. Arnold, in charge of the air
service for the western department,
and other officials. These men, ac
cording to the governor, were high in
their praise of Oregon and declared
that this state had done more to pro
mote the future of air patrol than
any otner section of the United States.
Governor Olcott is highly elated
over his flight, and insists that there
is less danger in the air than in rid
ing in an automobile on a congested
highway. On his way home Governor
Olcott was taken by plane as far as
Sacramento, Cal., from where he made

Xo Actual Resistance Made
by Young Woman.
A lurid police drama involving
98-pound girl charged with resisting
two 200-pDund policemen, and a young
man with a revolver intent upon de
fending his lady love, was brought to
light yesterday when Lorenzo B.
Pearson and Miss Iva Diemer, who
lives at Ryan place, appeared in mu
Patrolmen Gladwyn and Pierce were
the two stalwart bluecoats who made
the charge against the girl.
The excitement is said to have
started when a group of girls made
Miss Diemer get off the sidewalk in
passing them. This aroused the chiv
airy of her fiance. Pearson, who is
said to have then jostled one of the
aforementioned girls off the sidewalk.
The result was that Miss Madge
White, of the Roselyn apartments,
swore to a warrant charging Pearson
with disorderly conduct. Armed with
this instrument Patrolmen Gladwyn
and Pierce went on a hunt for Pear
son yesterday morning.
A man friend of the girl who was
shoved off the sidewalk, is said to
have made threats, with the result
that Pearson had put a revolver in
his pocket to defend himself with. He
had the weapon when he was arrested
on the other charge.
Miss Diemer was with Pearson at
the time of the arrest. He banded her
the weapon and she started down the
street with it. The polloe Immediately
called her back and arrested her for
Inquiry. The charge was later changed
to resisting an officer. Brother police
officers secured the services of Thorn
as Ryan, attorney, to defend her.
"In the good old days," declared one
old-timer, who regretted the deca
dence of the force, "it was considered
a disgrace for a policeman to place a
charge of resisting an officer against
a prisoner, no matter how badly the
policeman miirht be beaten up in ef
fecting the arrest."

Judge Rossman expressed the belief
that Pearson was a little bit inclined
to be a roughneck and told him to
think the matter over for one night
in jail. Pearson was later permitted
to go free on the payment of a $25
fine, when his brother told the judge
the man might lote his job if he was
compelled to remain in jail.

The Chamber of Commerce was yes

according to a story started in New
York, the association of railway ex
ecutives intends urging the inter
state commerce commission to refuse
cars and transportation for all ma
terial and supplies for highway work
in order that labor may be diverted
to railroad fields. The chamber is
asked to telegraph to D. E. Clark,
chairman of the interstate commerce

action, emphasizing the necessity of
continuing essential road work for
the relief of transportation conditions
and to assist in the distribution of
food,- fuel and other commodities. It
is cited that, wherever practicable,
the paving programmes of the states
have already been curtailed, so that
only work on vitally need sections
has progressed at all during the past
three years, and that such work as
is now under way is absolutely essential.
It is also requested that protests
