PORTLAND, OREGON, SATURDAY -EVENING, FEBRUARY 20, 1901.
St. Johns-Its Marvelous Past Its Great Future
ST. JOHNS Ir a striking example of
the influence of transportation
facilities in the development of a
. : . town..- Two years ago the place
had hot yet emerged from '4he sleep
which had possessed the ..village, since
the' city of Portland was first founded.
Two years. ago there was to be found
in the place only a few scattered houses,
with no "manufactures or business in
terests.. no employment was to be had in
the place, and a home had not been
built for 10 years preceding.
The little village occupied a desirable
point on the Willamette river at the very
gateway to the Portland harbor, Along
the water front was a two-mile stretch
a-up i i: ' iikttK X" :v- a"' -. .Jiffy I
of splendid . manufacturing sites, totally
undeveloped, fronting on a harbor a half
mile wide in which the. river channel
was 40 feet deep and possessing .excep
tional; advantages for the construction
of mills, factories and docks at a low
cost, affording the finest opportunities
for river and ocean commerce but lack
ing rail facilities, the one key necessary
4o unlock the great wealth of commercial
possibilities which centered at St Johns.
O. . V. Takes Xd.
The opportunities which the place af
forded for the extension of commerce
and manufacture was recognised by the
Oregon Railroad & Navigation company.
In the winter of 1902 the O. . R. & N. Co.
built its railroad along the harbor at
t Johns, completing the road .JoApril
ef that year, and opening the place to- a
great commercial future,
t At tmcerlmsiiresriifginr "ttrtterctuft- and
.manufacturers were quirk, to see the ad
vantage -which the place possessed. It
as found that ' plants could be con
structed at St Johns fronting, on deep
water with the use of minimum quan
tity of piling. It was found that in the
b'llldlng of plants and in the construc
tion of yards for milling Industries from
(1,000 to $10,000 per acre could be saved
st St. Johns In, the the Item of piling
alone. The first plant to be constructed
sfter the completion of the railroad was
the veneer and basket factory of the
Portland Manufacturing- company, ., and
since Its construction there ' has never
beea-a period of three consecutive months
in which some new industry has not en
tered the place. So that now, although
less than two years have elapsed, the
town possesses, beside the veneer and
basket factory, three saw mills, an ex-
' fHERE has never been a time In
I the history of this city thathe -1
outlook for a profitable-season
. in the realty market was so
bright as It Is at the present time.,-
Every day there is an increase In the
number of inquiries for property .from
easterners and this class "of . people
promise to be among the larger buyers
' of reel estate In this locality, during the
, earning year. .; ' r . ;
There is" not a single section of the
. city or the stste of Oregon that has not
shown a wonderful Improvement In real
' estate .vslues during the past ; year.
Every where property Is being more,
eagerly sought after and the prices paid
sre considered quite satisfactory by the
sellers. - . '
i Every kind cf property, city property,,
suburban property, farm property and
business locations, is showing an up
ward tendency in values. On the main
the advance In prices will average about
10 per cent, although , In some cases
property bought a year, ago m tills city
, has sold for double the amount paid.
The principal movement In the realty
market during the year has been in
homes, places which were not too far
distant from the car lines , and that
, could be purchased at a ptce that was
within the means of the average wage-
earner. - The extending of the city's
streetcar lines to sections that were re
mote from the business section of the
city a few years ago has caused an' In
creased demand for property.
There is one noticeable thing In the
realty marketthat the city Is showing
a decided growth, toward the northward.
This seems to be the history of every
city which Is located on the rivers. The
towns are first built as far inland as
navigation can proceed iand' then by
easy stages it reaches down the stream.
This is true of Portland in every par-
. tioular. The first selections In this city
- were to southern Portland., while now
- that portion still retains its distinction
as being the southern boundary.'. Now
Portland bas spread until It reaches
nearly as far north as the Columbia
river and ns far east as Mt Tabor.
There Is at the .present tlm st great
deal of agitation toward taking that
-suburb and- possibly Montavllla Into the
city's limits. . ;. r
There has been a great deal of talk
among people about watting until after
the Lewis and Clark fair ia over before
mtiklng purchases of real estate because,
they say. prices are Inflated and they
will surely go down, with a dull thud
after the fair's gates sre shut This
does not seem -to be the case, for the
; proposed holding of the fair In this city
has not. as yet made , any decided
change in. the call for real estate and
even property close to the fair grounds
lies' not shown great increase in. values.
If the present demand a or property, was

celsior mill, the Column Manufacturing
works and the great dry dock of the
port of Portland, now under construction,
which, when completed, will cost not less
than 1450,000, while a " ship-building com
pany has purchased a site and will be
gin the 'construction of Its plant at once.
The growth, of the business1 Interests of
the place has been nothing short of,
miraculous, and the supreme advantages
which the place possesses over and above
all other on the Portland harbor were
'fully attested by the port of Portland,
when after the most careful consideration
Of air locations for the construction of Its
dry dock, by which is to be fostered the
entire marine commerce of the 'city of
Portland, St Johns was selected as the.
best point at which to build. This tn
itself is a prophecy concerning the com
mercial future of the town; for where
the . dry dock is placed, there shipping
must congregate. '
- Targe Increase ia Population.
Simultaneous with the development of
the town in the business way came
greater impetus for the' building of
homes, development and Improvement
ofland and the Increase of the popula-
tion of the town. During the. past two
years "the town has more than quad-
rupled in population' ana more than 200
acres or iana rormeriy coverea wun .
brush have, been cleared and are now
occupied : by gardens, lawns and homen.
An electric Sine has been built connecting
this -suburb with Portland proper, and
another line from Portland, having Us

rapidly to completion. The school
building which had been trught to be
sufficient to accommodate the needs of
the place for many years to come has -already
"become Inadequate for the in-. ,
creased population and an extension has
been ordered by the school board.
. A City By Itself.
The rapid growth of the place in all
lines was so evident that the legislature
of the state of Oregon, at Ha last ses
sion, granted to the town a .charter,
making It a municipality under which
It might conduct its own government
and levy Its own taxes. Through this
measure the town has become exempt
from paying the tax rate of the city of .
Portland and is permitted to keep Its
own taxes low and to appropriate such
money as is raised by this means to
the improvement of St Johns Itself.

Lewis and Clark centennial In 'this city
during the coming year, real estate men
say that that property which is located
so near to the grounds would be show

From the real estate' records the In

larger per cent. of the sales of property
oeen made either ior residence or ware-
bouse purposes. Many new and costly
residences have been-constructed near
the fair grounds during the past season

the best in the .county and cost, on an
average of not less than 312,000.

view. There seems to be a general
feeling among the warehouse men to go-
to the west side of the river where they
can get the proper terminal : facilities,
put up substantial buildings and not
pay. more than their entire year's profit
for Insuring their stocks. Several com-
panies .now located along the bottom
lands of tbe east side between the Mor
rison and Madison ' street bridges hav
already, secured sites In the northern
portion of the west side.
' Taking -everything into consideration
the unfavorable weather, the strikes
among , the building trades : and the
strikes of . other trades, all of which
usually bas a bad effect on realty trans-
actions, the totals of the sales for the
year 190 were highly satisfactory to
tbe various dealers of the city. The

In this connection it may be well to
compare the building operations. of Port-
Innd ,Ior the year 1903 with those of 8t
Paul. Minn., a city which the government
census in 1900 gave 13,085 as its popula-
t Ion. while that of Portland was given
at 90,426. Since that time this city has
shown a very : wonderful growth and

' . Never In the history of Portland has there been such a favorable outlook for real estate as there is 4
today. The population of the city is showing a very large Increase- and homes are becoming more scarce as
the season progresses. There Is scarcely a vacant, office room to be found in any of the modern buildings,
and the demand from this source Is very large.. New and larger buildings are wanted to meet the require-
mentB of a growing population, and a consequent growing: business Interest , Rents in Portland are far below
4 what they are in other cities of this size, and all indications at 'present point to almost a double advance.
Business locations are being: sought after and 'high fig urea are offered as bonuses. Warehouse men are look-

f?r Property, and buy of quarter blocks for this purpose have been very frequent during the past year.
A comparison' of the building: permits and, real estate transfers of Portland and those of St. Paul show that
. this city Is far in ther lead, despite the fact that the population, of the latter city Is much larger. Portland,
;h?fever, Is growing, and some day in the near future hopes to distance Its Middle West friend. Building of
many new branches by the streetcar companies has a good effect by building up the suburbs.

pass through St. Johns tn order to reach
Portland. When this has been accom
plished St. Johns, will have shipping fa
cilities which cannot be equaled, in any
part of Portland, and It is safe to pre
dict that manufacturing ' property, will

Mors Water Front
Almost parallel with the Willamette
river, one and one-half miles to the
north, stretches the Columbia slough, in
reality a river by itself, being several
hundred feet ln'width and deep enough
at present time for river vessels. It is
today more desirable In many ways for
manufacturing purposes than in that
portion of the Willamette' river which is
above the bridges in Portland. . Al
though the Columbia slough lacks the
broad harbor and the deep channel
found On the Willamette river aide of
St. Johns, it nevertheless affords to the
northern boundary line of the suburb a
great amount of very desirable manu
facturing property,, which in Itself wilt
some time support a large population
'and contribute materially-to the future
of 8t Johns.
St. Johns is destined to become the
manufacturing suburb of Portland.
Every boat which enters the Portland
harbor must pass by its door. Already
the Upper part of the Portland harbor
is overtaxed, and ships unable to, find
anchorage there, can find no other safe
or desirable place than St. Johns. In
deed, future milling and manufacturing
enterprises must locate at St Johns, for
at no other point on the Portland har
bor can be found suitable place for
building, at moderate cost where facili
ties for 'both marine and railway ship
ment can be obtained.

In the suburbs the growth of realty
sales have been remarkable durlnrg the
past year. Of the various sections the
new city of St. Johns fs perhaps in the
lead. During the year several new en
terprises employing a. large number of
men were . secured for this place and
this caused a considerable demand for
homes for workmen. There Is a proba
bility of the early building of a new
electric car line Into that section and
this will probably boom i real estate
values. ' , ,,
There Is a proposition on foot to en

versity Park and this la causing a stir
in realty circles through that neighbor
hood. , , jt '
Out in the extreme southern portion
of the city the Oregon Water Power ft
Railway company has, during the past
year, bought a considerable portion of
City View Park and this has been placed
on the market Quite a large number
of sales have been made and where once
stood nothing but tmpty ground large
number of modern dwellings are now

should not be interfered with any mors;
than possible. '
The council has recently come to then
conclusion that St. Johns is to be on(
of the large cities on the map of Orei
gon and general Improvements all over
the town are planned. Streets will b
Improved and put Into shape for large)
and heavy traffio and new thoroughfares
will be opened up., . . ' .
During the vast year the business In
terests of the town have been more than
doubled and now the stores there com
pare with any similar town in the state.
One large department store has already
been opened in St Johns and is said to
be doing a good volume of business."-
The Industries of St Johns at the
present time are: ' Peninsula Lumber
company," Central ' ' Lumber company,
George W. Cop Lumber company, St.
Johns Lumber company. : Porch and
Column company, Portland Manufactur
ing company. . Veneering . factory and
Excelsior MUla, besides the dry dock. -
Real estate operations in the vicinity
of St Johns have been very active dur
ing the past - two years and section
where dense forests stood several years
ago are now cleared, have good houses
and wide streets. Oak Park, across thai
railroad track from Cedar Park, Is per
haps one of the best, examples. Here
the forests were so thick that, it was
all a person could do to travel through
them. Now Oak Park in studded with
the homes of the men who work In the
mills. Most of the bpraes have pretty
.gardens connected with them and tha
transformation from a gloomy forest
to a place where many homes abound
Is a sight that causes wonderment to
