Probably at no previous time in the
history of Portland has there been so
much building In progress and under
contemplation as at present. The table
at the head of this column gives some
idea of the large number of handsome
business structures upon which actual
work has commenced or will commence
within the next few months, but it by
no means covers the whole field. There
are several other large building propo
sitions now being considered which
have not progressed far enough to be
announced, and a number of buildings
slightly less in value now being con

this list. '

Announcement of two largp- build

frame structures In the Spring has
bfcen made by The' Oregonian during
the past week. E. J. B. Yeon will build
on Fifth and Alder streets a business
block that will be a credit to the city.
It will be a seven or eight-story fire
proof structure, and care tvIH be taken
to have the most modern improvements
in every detail. Mr. Yeon says that
there -will be nqt a suggestion of the
eggshell stylo of building about It.
but that permanence will be the chief
object in its construction. "Mr- Yeon
purchased .75x100 feet -on this -corner
for $121,000, which shows how property
is soaring iij 4-his vicinity. For one
25-foot strip on Alder street he gave
$31,004). although the building will
probably he torn down. It has not
been long that property in any part of
the city would bring as much as $1000
a front foot.
The other building will be erected
by Captain D. E. Buchanan on his
Washington-street property, where M.
SicbeL Martin & Forbes and Jacob
Cesser are at present. The building
will be not less than five stories, and
probably six. and will cost $C0,000.
Rain as delayed the excavation
work for the Wells-Fargo building
during the past week, but it will be
continued as rapidly as weather con
ditions permit. For a while the com
pany was undecided whether to erect
10 or 12 stories, but has now definitely
decided on the latter. It -wilj lie known
as the Transportation building, as it
will be the headquarters o.f the- Port
land branches of several railroad lines.
The completed plans are expected frpm
New York about November 1.
Progress on Other Buildings.
Work is progressing well on the
preliminaries for the Fliedner and Tull
& Glbbs buildings. It was originally
intended to make the latter six stories
with -a four-story ell, but the owners,
wishing all the room possible, have de
cided to make It six stories through
out. No definite plans have been made for
the Masonic Temple, which Is to be
erected at West Park and YamMll

In regard to the proposed chances In the''

With respect to -the appointment of -any

that under the present law and policy of this
department no one can be appointed to suc

expiration of his term of office until such
officer haa Taeen examined for reappointment
and failed in his examination.
Colonel Lamplng's term of office expires
some time this .Fall. When It does expire- ho
will be ordered, before a board for examina

be recommlssloned. if he does not he will

stands on the same footing In this respect.
Their commicrlons are practically for life so
