Agreement Must Be in Writ
. ing, Says Oregon Law.
Cae Pecidrd by Supreme Court of
This Stale Shows I morta nee
ol Follow Ing Law.
Chairman Legal Committee. Portland
Realty Board.
Where the owner of land orally
agrees to sell the same and deposits a
deed In cscrour to be deilverea upon
payment of the agreed purchase price.
may said owner withdraw ine a-ea
from escrow and refuse to consum
mate the transaction even though the
purchaser may have paid a portion
of the purchase price?
This question waa decided In the af
firmative by the Oregon supreme
court In the case of Foulkes vs. Seng
atacken. 3 Or.. 11S. 15S Pac. 952.
163 Pac. 311. In that case the facts
were that the owner of the land or
ally agreed to sell the same to the
defendant. There waa no written con
tract of any kind between them, but
in accordance with the terms of the
oral arrangement the purchaser paid
the seller $300 on account if the pur
chase price and the seller executed a
deed and deposited the same In escrow
with instructions to deliver the deed
to the purchaser upon the payment of
11 000. payable in two annual pay
ments of 1000 each. While the deed
. . i j
so lay In escrow, tne purcnaser pam
the seller $J50 additional. The seller
retained possession of the property
at all times. Before the payments
were completed, however, the seller
died, leaving a will devising to
Koulkea. the plaintiff, "all real estate
which she should possess at the time
of her death." Thereafter the pur
chaser paid the balance of the pur
chase price to the party holding the
deed In escrow, whereupon the deed
waa delivered to the purchaser and
Salt to Caaeel riled.
About three yeara later the plain
tiff, who It will be remembered, suc
ceeded to the land under the terms of
the seller's will, filed suit to cancel
the purchaser s deed, contending that
the seller's deed waa void for the rea
son that the death of the seller prior
to the delivery of the deed rendered
the deed null and void.
In passing upon the question the
supreme court based its decision upon
the "statute of frauds" of thia state,
which provide that a contract for
the aale of real estate, unless in writ
ing, la abaolutely void. The court
held that an escrow "presupposes the
existence of a valtd contract." "There
must be." said the court, "an actual
contract of sale on the one side and
of purchase on the other and until
there la such a contract the Instru
ment executed by the proposed grant
or, triough In fornv a deed, ia neither
a deed nor an escrow."
Now the only writing In the case
was the deed deposited by the seller,
but this deed, the court held, was not
sufficient under the statute of frauds
for the reason that it did not contain
all the terms of the vernal agreement
between the seller and purchaser, and
the court held that since there waa no
valid, binding and enforceable agree
ment to sell the land and not a suffi
cient part performance of the oral
contract on the part of the purchaser
to avoid the effect or the statute of
frauds, there was not. technically
peaking, an escrow; that therefore
ih Henuiiit of the deed bv the aeller
was in contemplation of the law1
merely a voluntary act of the seller
which amounted to nothing more than
a continuing offer which might have
been withdrawn by seller at any time,
and which offer necessarily termin
ated with the death of the seller. And.
the court held that the death of the
seller at once produced the death of
the deed and that no subsequent act
of the purchaser could "resurrect the
w riting and make it a living deed."
Deed Is Deelared Void.
It waa therefore held by the court
that the plaintiff waa entitled to a
decree canceling the purchaser's deed,
but that the purchaser should have a
lien upon the land for the repayment
of the amount paid by him under the
terms of the oral contract. In its
conclusion the court said: "This con
troversy presents some features which
naturally appeal to the sympathy of a
chancellor and yet courts cannot de
clare that contracts are valid when
the atatute law is positive and un
equivocal terms pronounces them in
valid. As has been aptly aaid. 'hard
case are the quickeanda of the law.'
In the long run it is better to follow
the law and avoid the quicksands."
It la to be noted that in the fore
going case the court held the seller's
deposit of the deed to be a mere offer
to sell, a "continuing offer." which
necessarily terminated with the sell
era death. .If the deposit of the deed
waa a mere offer tt would follow,
even though the seller had not died,
that ah might have withdrawn the
deed at any time during her lifetime
prior to the actual delivery of the
deed, notwithatanding that the pur
chaser had paid or offered to pay the
full purchase price: it would alao fol
low that If ahe had ao withdrawn the
offer, the purchaser, having no valid
contract capable of legal enforcement,
would have been unable to compel
her to convey the land. The caae
above cited teaches this: thst not
withstanding the parties to the sale
of realty attempt to place their deeds
and papers in escrow, either party
may withdraw at any time unless the
agreement U reduced to writing In
the shape of a valid enforceable

Fully three-quarters of the big amount of building now under way In' Portland is devoted to new garages or
homes for motor car dealers. One of the finest of these buildings Is that now under construction at the northeast
corner of Washington and Burnslde streets for the W. H. Wallingford company, distributors for Liberty and Briscoe
cars. It Is to cost approximately $50,000 and will cover a space 100x100 feet. The first floor will be devoted to sales
room, garage and service facilities, while a complete machine ahop will occupy most of the second floor.
Adjoining this building in Fifteenth street is to be a one-story structure for the Lahey Spring company, costing
$10,000. The W. H. Wallingford company has also purchised the present building adjoining its new quarters on the
west and occupied by A. C. Stevens and Mqltxner-Westcott Motors, Inc., who will remain, however, aa tenants. The
new building is to be one of the finest motor-car atructur s on the" Pacific coast. .
.Numerous Salrs of Farm and Resi
dential Property Closed Dur
ing Past Week.
Farm and residential property in
the Gresham section la beginning to
show vigorous movement and a num
ber of Important sale have been
made during the past wee, while oth
era are in prospect, according to
Messrs. Krider and Elkington of the
Gresham Real Estate company. The
movement In real estate Is attributed
largely to the success of the berry
and poultry industry which has at
tracted the attention of outside peo
ple. The following sales have been re
ported from Gresham:
The C. A. Johnson farm near Kelso,
consisting of 50 acres of farm land
with equipment, to William Jocelyn of
Portland, for $10,000.
Karol Shulxe to John Cunningham.
21 acres of unimproved land near
llogan station, for $2800.
William Mueller to P. A. Ledine, 20
acre farm near Haley station for
Gerald A. Miles to Sherman Lyons.

am. for 15100.

G. W. Kenney to G. S. Vedder. 20
acres unimproved land near Lusted
school, for $2000.
Mary A. Stubba to Fred Southard.
14 acres north of Gresham high
school, for $7500. I
A considerable movement of rest- j
dentlal property in Gresham is also
reported. A considerable number of
the purchases both of farm and resi
dential property are newcomers from
the east and middle west who have
decided to make their home in Oregn.
that the industry Is in the main in a
fairly healthy condition.
Strikes have acted as a atrons de
terrent to construction during the
past month, and many buildings have
been held up. The labor situation,
even more than the higher level of
material prices, has been a disturb
ing Influence in the trade, especially
In cities where the unions has broken
their contracts, as did the Painters'
union in New York. Breaches of
faith such aa this cause builders to
hesitate to accept contracts on the
usual lump sum basts, preferring the
cost-plus-percentage or cost-plus-a-fixed-fee
as being safer.
Costs have increased very appre
ciably since the first of the year, due
to increases in wages and materials.
There haa been much talk of profi
teering by material manufacturers
and dealers, but so far no proof has
been advanced of any concerted effort
to advance prices. A commlssioin ap
pointed by the state of Illinois re
cently investigated material prices in
that state: it found satisfactory evi
dence that prevailing prices were
justifiable under present economic
conditions. The present high prices
ill remain either until there is a
decided lowering in the general scale
of labor, or until more economical
methods of construction are evolved.

Men Tired of Strikes and Generally
Unstable Conditions In Cities
Turning to Country.
ALBANY. Or., Oct. 4. (Special.)
Will continuous strikes and labor
troubles fomented by foreign agita
tors In the unions furnish the mo
tive for a "back to the land" move
ment which it has been contended is
needed in this country?
That they will is indicated by the
Increasing demand from residents of
larger cities for small fruit and gar
den tracts in the Willamette valley.
A typical case is that of a Seattle
man who bought a small tract near
Albany last week. He said he had
endured labor troubles as long as he
could: that the foreign element was
dominating the labor unions of
Seattle and that the unions there are
running the business of that city.
He decided to seek independence and
peace on a small farm. He chose
tnis vicinity because of the big can-
j nery here, which assures him a mar
ket for the small fruit he expects to
This man says that many people,
tired of the continuous strikes and
interference with their work by la
bor unions dominated by foreigners,
are seeking new locations. They are
not farmers and cannot take up gen
et al farm work, but since many
towns in Oregon and Washington
now have canneries they expect to
try raising small fruits.. He pre
dicted an exodus from Seattle be
cause of the radicalism permeating
tl e labor unions there.
Conditions here indicate already
that this man's forecast is correct.
Two Business Blocks at Walla
Walla Being Erected on Cost
Plus Basis.
Real estate is rapidly picking up
through the Inland Empire, according
to Paul A. Cowgill, executive secre
tary of the Interstate Realty associa
tion, who returned last week from a
two-weeks' trip to the Walla Walla
and Yakima valleys. The fruit and
grain crops are abundant and both
valleys are in the midst of a period
of unusual prosperity, he reported.
At vv.alla Walla a realty board waa
formed, patterned after the associa
tion In this city. A meeting was held
at the Walla Walla Commercial club
at whic,h Mr. Cowgill spoke, and the
formation of tne realty board ioi-
lowed. The real estate dealers at
Yakima have not yet organized a.
board, but Mr. Cowgill expects to re
turn within a short time and aid
them in forming an association.
"Real estate activities are booming
in both sections," said Mr. Cowgill.
"Prices are stiffening a little as the
demand increases. I found that houses
are in great demand in practically all
the towns throughout that section,
even the smaller places. I had had an
idea that the house shortage was lim
ited to coast cities, but found the sit
uation just as tight in Yakima and
Walla Walla as here.
"I attribute the shortage of living
accommodations to the fact that there
has been practically no building dur
ing the past five years on account of
the war, and at present building is
restricted because of high cost of ma
terial and high wages. In Walla
Walla I was interested in learning
that two brick business blocks now
going up are being built on 'the 'cost
plus' basis, contractors refusing . to
make definite bids because of the in
creasing building expenses.
During his trip Mr. Cowgill visited
Toppenish. Mabton, Prosser, Pasco and
Kennewick, In addition to Walla
Walla and Yakima. Real estate deal
ers in all these sections are beginning
to feel the stirrings of a period of
increased real estate activity which
ia thought to be coming on, he said. .
The Interstate Realty association
recently adopted a policy of taking in
property owners as associate mem
bers, and expects to begin a campaign
shortly to reorganize taxation in a
way which, the organization claims.
will be more equitable to land. At
present officials of the realty associa
tion contend 85 per cent of the taxa
tion of the country is upon land,
which represents less than one-half
of the wM4ith. T. D. Rockwell, for
mer tax commissioner of Washington,
is preparing a series of articles upon
the subject which will be presented
to the members of the association
through its official monthly publication.

Many of Present-Day Cars Can Use
Coal Oil Mixture.
There are thousands of cars at pres
ent in use which can, with a
convenience, use a mixture of kero
sene and gasoline or even kerosene
alone. The carburetion systems of
modern cars are designed to handle a
fairly poor grade of fuel, but owners
are a little backward in experimenting:.
An appreciable saving can be made
by each owner if he will try a one
gallon "mixture composed of one-half
kerosene and one-half gasoline. Espe
cially should this be done by owners
who are not particular about abnor
mal car performance. For ordinary
running when little demand is made
for quick acceleration, this mixture
may prove satisfactory in a great
many cases.
Though motoring in this country Is
comparatively cheap. owners can
make It still cheaper if they will di
rect their attention to two of . the
important items of expense fuel and
tires. Tires are higher in cost than
once, but the average owner can make
up for the extra cost by getting addi
tional mileage. At the very first
sign, plug the slightest tread cut. In
flation should be given a great deal
of attention, especially also since the
heat of summer adds to the wear.
Tou will be surprised at the better
performance of the car after it has
been lubricated at every moving surface.
