TRANSPORTATION SNARL OFF
SETS LABOR ADVANTAGE.
Resumption of Construction Not
Likely Until Supplies Can
Commenting on the building situa
tion, S. W. Straus of S. W. Straus &
Co.. 150 Broadway, New York, says:
"Lack of transportation facilities,
freight embargoes and the car short
age comprise the principal deterring
influences in the building situation
in the country at present. Builders
and architects generally are able to
find labor to do the work and they
are able to purchase a reasonable
amount of material, but they find
themselves seriously handicapped in
transporting materials from the
plants or yards of the manufacturer
to the site of the operation.
"A tremendous congestion of
freight is reported along all import
ant transportation lines, which it
will take some weeks at least under
the most favorable circumstances to
clear up. Moreover, there is no im
mediate likelihood of relief for the
car" shortage as the depleted supply
cannot be quickly restored. In addi
tion, there is an urgent need for more
cars for the transportation of food
stuffs and we will soon be in the
midst of the crop moving season.
Midsummer Is upon us, and, with all
the adverse factors referred to, one
cannot feel that the present building
season will witness any great reduc
tion in the housing shortage of the
country as a result of a slowing up
process which has been brought about
through factors entirely foreign to
the building industry.
"The demand for new buildings
continues unabated In all parts of
the country, but the building Industry
Is proceeding at such a pronounced
disadvantage that it is to be doubted
if present activities are of sufficient
magnitude to prevent an ever increas
ing deficit in housing facilities."
REALTORS STUDVLICENSE LAW
Portlanders and Interstate Associa
tion Favor Tightening Up Statute.
At a meeting held last Wednesday
the state license law committee of the
Portland Realty board and a like com-,
mitlee of the Interstate Realty asso

ments to the Oregon law that will be
submitted to the next legislature and
also the form of the proposed laws to
bo introduced before the legislative
branches of the state governments of
the other northwest states.
California, Michigan and Wisconsin
have laws licensing real estate deal
era and in some of the states the
laws are more drastic, than in Oregon.
The realtors are favorable to making
the statute more stringent in this
state and will use every effort to
make the new laws in other states
such as will afford a full measure of
protection against the irresponsible

KELSO FACES LITIGATION
City Restrained From Having Im

KALAMA, Wash., July 3. (Special.)
The case of Julia Price et al. vs. the
City o Kelso will be tried at the next
term of court this month. This is a
case in which property owners of
Kelso brought action to stop Improve
ment work by the ctiy after the city
council had entered into a contract
for the improvements and the con
tractor had completed a large portion
of the work.
The property owners engaged at
torneys of Kalama to bring the mat
ter into court. They, alleged Kelso
had not complied with the require
ments of the law and let the contract
bf-fore the ordinance creating the im
provement district was legally pub
lished, and also alleged defects in
the publication of the ordinance.
The matter came up before Judge
Darch at the last term of court and
hrt issued a temporary restraining
order against the city and took the
matter under advisement. He now
has continued the injunction and the
contractor is restrained from proceed
ing with the work until the matter
has been finally Settled in the court.

In that case Kern held a mortgage on

Sperling executed another mortgage
to Hotallng. Kern was ignorant of
the existence of Hotaling's mort

Mr. Taylor reviewed briefly the

ticularly on the subjects of legisla

also the association committees on

movement and the committee
on sate license laws. A newly ere

endeavor to protect the public against

complimented the Portland Chamber
