The entire building will be de

of the J. K. Gill company's wholesale
and retail business. Particular at
tention will be paid to strength and
light. It is expected to . have the
structure completed by Novem-ier 15

Plans for the structure are being
prepared by Sutton & Whitney,
local architects, and the contract for
construction work has been let to
"W. F. Dinwiddle.
In June of 1020 the J. K. Gill com
pany took a long-time lease on the
property at Fifth and Stark streets
belonging to the King estate. How
ever, recently arrangements have
been made to purchase. The location
was chosen after over a year of in
vestigation for a site best adapted to
the needs of a business of the nature
of the book concern.
. William A. Montgomery represented
the J. K. Gill company and Alex O.
Eae, secretary of the King estate,
represented the owners in the nego
tiations looking to the purchase.
HUtory Is Increntins.
Joseph K. Gill, the founder of the
firm of J. K. Gill & Co., was born in
Yorkshire, England, and came to the
United States in 1S54. The family be
came established at Worcester, Mass
where "Joe" Gill was a student in the
public schools, cotton mill employe,
machinist and anything to help his
parents and himself. , His little cap
ital, hoarded by greatest diligence
and economy, sufficed to furnish him
an academic course in the famous old
academy at Wilbraham, Mass. In
18fifj a position on the faculty of Wil
lamette university at' Salem was of
fered to him and accepted. Business
ottered a more inviting future ad a
year later, In 1S67, Mr. Gill opened a
book and stationery store in Salem,
giving special attention to the sup
plying of educational books.
In 1870, W. S. Ladd and H. WvCor
bitt, while attending the state fair
at Salem, suggested that Mr. Gill
come to Portland and open a store
there. v f
In 1ST1 Mr. Gill moved to Portland
and formed a partnership with George
A. Steel, and began business under
the name of Gill & Steel. They pur
chased the business of Harris & Hol
man, taking their stock and location
on Front street, near Washington.
Company Large Distributor.
Later Mr. Steel retired from the
firm and the business continued
under the name of J. K. Gill & Co.
The company occupied successively
tlte Holmes building on First street,
Between Washington and Stark
streets, and the Union block, before
moving to its present Jocation at
Third and Alder streets. '
The company has grown until it s
declared to bo the largest distributor
of books in the Pacific northwest or
any city of the size of Portland in
the United States.
. Officers are Joseph K. Gill, presi
dent; William A. Montgomery, vice
president and general manager, and
John Gill, secretary. '
Concerns which will be compelled
to move from their present location
as a result of the plans for razing the
buildings now located .a the south
east corner of Fifth and Stark streets
include: Sealy-Drsser company.
Clark, Kendall & Co., Arthur Leonard,
cigar dealer, the Smith McCoy Elec
tric company, Harry Beckwith, real
tor, and Foley & Van Dyke. The last
mentioned firm has annonuced its in
tention of retiring from business. The
Smith-McCoy store will be moved to
264 Alder street.
Structure at Park and Yamhill Is
'". Being Remodeled.
One of the steps in the development
of the newer business section of the
city was completed last week in the
remodeling of the building on the cor
ner of Park and Yamhill streets for
merly used by the Pacific Chiropractic
college. The interior of the structure
was completely changed, the building
neing fitted with store rooms on the
pround floor and the upper floors be
ing arranged for operation as a hotel
to be known as the Hotel Beverly. A
portion of the ground floor will also
be used as a hotel lobby.
The hotel is to be operated by W. B.
McN'air, recent arrival from Detroit,
Mich., who has taken a lease on the
entire building for a term of years
from Wakefield, Fries & Co.
- The hotel will have 31 rooms and
will be modern in every respect. Mr.
WcNair announced. He also announced
that he was fitting it up with new
fixtures entirely.
Mr. McNair said he decided to set
tle in Portland after making an in
vestigation of all the cities of the Pa
cific coast. He expressed the belief
that this city has the biggest future
of all.
He was engaged in the hotel busi
ness in the east for some time previ

Where a tenant on a month-to-month
basis removes from the -rented
premises without giving written no
tice to the landlord of his intention to
quit and terminate the tenancy, is he
liable for rent subsequently accruing?
Section 2528, Oregon laws, as amend
ed by 1921 session laws 353, provides
that where one rents lands and prem
ises of another on a month-to-month
basis, no termination date having
been fixed by the parties, the tenancy
"may only be terminated by either the
landlord or the tenant giving the no
tice for a period of 20 days prioivjto
the expiration of any such month."
All doubts existing prior to 1921
as to whether or not a tenant on. a
month-to-month basis Is required to
give formal notice of any intention
to quit In order to be absolved from
further liability for rent have been
removed by the enactment'of the stat
ute above quoted. The law, being re
cently enacted, has not yet been
passed upon by our supreme court.
Language la Plain.
Its language is plain and unambig
uous. It has been established by stat
ute in this state for decades that a
landlord can only terminate a month
to-month terrancy, thp rents being
paid, Dy giving a formal written no
tice to the tenant for a certain num
ber of days prior to the expiration of
the month for which the rent is paid.
Prior to 1921 no similar requirement
was made by statute with reference
to a tenant, should he desire to ter
minate the tenancy, and the right of
a tenant -to remove from premises
rented on a month-to-month basis, at
any time, without notice and without
liability for rent accruing for subse
quent months, has been unchallenged
in the supreme court of this state.
Section 2528, however, as amended,
clearly establishes the tenant's lia
bility where no notice is given of an
intention to quit. The statute re
quires a tenant on a' month-to-month
basis, if he would escape further lia
bility for rent and would terminate
the tenancy, togi,ve written notice to
his landlord
Example Is Given.
Assuming that the month for which
rent is paid begins on the first day
of the month, the tenant, should he
desire to terminate the arrangement
at the end of March, for example, will
be obliged to notify the landlord of
such intention 20 days before the end
of that month, i. e., on or- before the
expiration of March 11. or, if he
should desire to terminate the ten
ancy during the month of April, the
notice would have to be given on or
before the close of April 10. If the
month for which rent is paid begins,
let us say, February 20 and ends
March 19. 1922, then notice to ter
minate the tenancy on March 19 would
have, to be given February 27, 1922.
Should the rental period expire on
any other day of the month, the date
on or before which the notice must be
given can easily be computed. The
day on which the notice is given must
be excluded from the calculation,
though the last day may be included.
(Section 531 Oregon laws.) ' ,
The tenant's notice of such inten
tion is required to be in writing (Sec
tion 2543, Oregon laws). The notice
will be sufficient if it is addressed to
the landlord, describes the premises
with reasonable certainty for identi
fication and notifies the landlord of
the tenant's intention to terminate the
tenancy on a certain day." McClung
vs. McPherson, 47 Ore. 73. 88; 81 Pac
567; 82 Pac. 13. The following form
of notice would probably be legally
sufficient: ,
JOHN SMITH (Landlord):
You are hereby notified that I Intend
to remove from and vacate the premises at
street, Port
land, Oregon, now occupied by me as your
tenant on a month-to-month basis at the
end of my present month, to-wit ,
1922, and to terminate the tenancy on
that date.
Sated ,
Service Method Described.
It is not absolutely necessary that
the notice to quit be handed to the
landlord in person. The present stat
ute does not prescribe any particular
mode of service. Under such circum
stances it is said that the service will
be sufficient if the notice is left with
the husband, wife or servant of the
landlord at his place of residence.
and where an agent has charge of
the management of the landlord's
business with reference to the ten
ancy, service on such agent will prob
ably be sufficient. 16 R. C. L. 1176
"It has been said that any manner
of service will suffice if it clearly
appears that the notice reached the
party for whom it was intended
within the time provided by the stat
ute. Hence service of a notice by
mail, postage prepaid, has been held
sufficient." 24 Cyc. 1334. Notice,
however, if given by mail, should be
given so as to reach the landlord 20
full days before the time fixed for
the termination of the tenancy.
xne giving or sucn a notice ap
parently may be waived. Wolfer vs.
Hurst, 47 Ore. 156; 80 Pac. 419; 82
Pac. 20.' And if the landlord is shown
to have waived the giving of notice,
the tenant will not be liable for rent
for the ensuing month. Unless the
notice is given or the waiver of the
landlord shown, the tenant will be
liable under the provisions of the
statute for rent for the ensuing
month and thereafter until the ten
ancy is legally terminated.
New Liability Poaoible.
If the tenant gives the required
notice and then does not vacate the
premises promptly at the time fixed
in the notice, but holds over for one
or two days in the ensuing month,
the effect of the notice is destroyed
and he, Will thereupon be liable for
the rent as if no notice had been
given; a new notice of the intention
to vicate will be required before the
tenant's liability is terminated..' King
vs. Durkee-Atwood Co.,-J26 Minn. 452;
148 N. W. 297; L. R. A. 1915 A. 235
Park vs. Page, 41 Ore. 5.79; 69 Pac.
822; Clifford vs. Smith Meat Co., 84
Ore. 1; 163 Pac. 808.
Even though the tenant holds over
toy reason of sickness, he is never
theless liable. For instance, a tenant
was held liable for rent subsequently
accruing where he remained three
days after the expiration of his ten
ancy, having held over because of the
Illness of a boarder. Haynes vs. Al
drich. 133 'N. Y. 287; 28 A. S. R. 636;
31 N. K 4. -An illustration of the
