Cannery Buys Evergreens.
BROWNSVILLE, Or., Aug. 10. (Spe

evergreen blackberries this season the
cannery at this place is working over
time and the growers and farmers in
Linn County are raising more of this
fruit than ever before. Five cents a
pound is being paid for the berries,
which for many years were considered
as a nuisance and a pest. - The cannery
is taking any amount of the fruit, so
that the man who has only one bush of
the evergreens can market his product
as readily as can the grower with a

me uermans are relying on ma
chine guns to stem the allied tide, not
wishing to risk capture of their artil
lery. The enemy is defending himself
with desperate courage wherever the
position affords means, and the officers
are shooting down any soldiers who
show symptoms of quitting.
The enemy is fighting against tlm
time for the German command to try
to readjust itself and to limit the con
sequence of the blow.
Military observers here say the prob
lem facing the rival commanders is
easily defined. Marshal Koch struck at
the point where the army group of
Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria
and the German Crown Prince Joins,
obliging the enemy hurriedly to reor
ganize the higher commands- and to
place the armies of Generals von der
Marwltz and Von Hutier under one
chief. This operation has temporarily
thrown the Germans off their balance.
and It is their object now to regain it.
That there must be a change. In the
German positions generally between
the Somme and the Olse Is evident. The
German Eighteenth army, which is
commanded by Von Hutier. is deployed
from Montdidier to the Oise. The coun
try behind it is hilly and wooded, alto
gether unfavorable for the withdrawal
of masses of men and material.
In a retreat Von Hutier would be
obliged to use three high roads and
t . i railroads which converge on Roye
like the spokes of a wheel. Beyond
that town a retreat wouli be depend
ent upon the two roads toward Ham
and the Somme, one direct and the
othen, by way of Nesle.
From the geographical details It will
be seen that Von Hutier, in a retreat,
would be forced to squeeze his heavy
artillery and convoys through Roye.
It would be like putting them through
a rolling mill, for the French advance
troops are now six miles northwest of
Roye, while the center of the German
front is 11 miles south of that town.
The discomfiture of General Von
Hutier's army and the probability of
its being surrounded arouses a great
deal of interest here. There Is a feel-1

Charges to Meet With Opposition
The city of Portland will oppose any
increase in power and electric heating
rates, sought in a petition filed with
the Public Service Commission by the
Portland Railway, Light & Power Com
pany, if a resolution introduced by
City Commissioner Bigelow is adopted
The resolution directs attention to
the petition seeking increased rates in
commercial electric rates and directs
the Mayor to appoint officials to wage
a strenuous-jopposition to the granting
of the petition.
The Portland Railway, Light &
Power Company contends that the in
creased cost of materials and supplies
and the increased cost of labor make
an advance in rates necessary, and ap
peals to the commission to set aside the
tariff now in effect and substitute Just
and equitable rates.

This is the time for shrewd and sensible men TO BUY, although a
poor time TO SELL. Nevertheless, my home and business affairs in the
South require my attention there. Hence will sell this fine property
AT AUCTION on Monday, August 19th,
at 2 P. M., on the premises, by J. T. Wilson,
Persons buying on the upward trend, as is now the case, after depres
sion, are the ones who reap large profits, as is illustrated by the following:
In the 1896 depression the then owner of the corner on Washington
and Park Streets now covered by the Piatt Building, being pressed for
money, and the pessimists of that day saying, "The town was dead; would
never come back, etc." (same as so many are saying today), sold that cor
ner for but $18,000. The town didn't die; it' did come back; (it always
does, stronger and bettej each time.). And that lot is now rented
for $13,500 per year net cash, and the fine building thereon to belong to
the lot at the expiration of the lease.
About the same time, the half block on Oak Street, on which is the
beautiful Benson Hotel and the 14-story building of the Telephone Com
pany, was offered to a gentleman still here at only $20,000 and is worth
now, I believe, at least $325,000 for the ground alone.
Jack Peterson purchased the quarter block on which now stands the
Wells Fargo Building at $40,000 (then covered with the old Cook stables).
Mr. Peterson was guyed and be-deviled by the pessimists of that day so,
that he hunted the selling agent, Mr. Grindstaff, demanding return of
his deposit, saying that he had been taken advantage of while drinking;
yet in a short while he sold it for a hundred thousand dollars, whereby he
got his sobriquet of "Lucky Jack."
iris not so long ago that Mr. Percy Blythe bought AT AUCTION the
quarter block at Stark and Broadway Streets, now occupied by the Elks
Building, for the sum of but $10,000, selling it shortly afterward for a
nice profit and the property is easily worth at this time $250,000 for the
While the Grand Avenue and Hawthorne Avenue quarter block is
but partially improved and, under old lease is bringing in a monthly
rental of $305, on January 1st it will be $355 per month, OR AN ANNUAL
RENTAL OF $4260.
Now is the time to buy. History repeats itself. The cities of the
United States will continue to grow. Portland, with its great new ship
building industry, bringing in a payroll of about $50,000,000 a year, with
big prices for our wheat, wool, cattle, lumber industry, and other products,
Portland's future is assured. Some sensible man, or syndicate, will buy the
above property, as it will be sold subject to a mortgage of $30,000, matur
ing March 1, 1920, the remainder to be paid in cash or Liberty Bonds at
par. Abstract and other information will be furnished to date.
Remember the sale will be held on the premises Monday, August 19th,
at 2 P. M.
