IN THE ROSE QTY
Imposing Buildings Planned for Many Down Town Corners Sortie
Already in Process of Construction, Excavations Being Made
for Others New Structures Are Being Planned :
! Whila the realty 'market during the
paat week has not been active except
for araall aalea the' building fever haa
been particularly noticeable. With the
coming of good weather the work on
buildings long contemplated haa started
In with vigor. The alte for the new
Couch building waa made ready during
t the week and the actual work for the
foundation started. The old building on
the Tailing property- at - Fifth and
; Washington streeta was rased In two
daye and Lot Q. gwetland will immedi
ately' begin" active ' operations on the
large handsome modern building to be
erected there. The plans of the new
(nlne-story-structure for the Portland
General Klectrlo company were made
f ubllo and they show an Imposing buttd
ng that will add much to the architec
ture of the city. .., .
" 7 " jrrw Tlieatx promised. ', r
Possibly the . moat ' Important an
nouncement of the week waa that made
yesterday .that Charlea Bweeney, - the
Spokeno millionaire, who has purchased
t- . J
Inforced concrete. .The ? new couch
bulldlnjr is to be of this style and It win
be tbVarst In the city. The possibili
ties of such construction is Just being
realised and it ia likely that after one
such structure Is erected others .will
follow, just as haa occurred In Seattle.
While making provisions for reinforced
concrete the city council should also
make arrangements for the Inspection
of such work while under way. On ac
count of the manner ia, which aucb
buildings are constructed an expert is
already needed) for an inspector; and
whil changing the laws the council
should provide for such an .inspector. .
Xuck maUroad Work.
' In addition to the good news of the
new buildings to be started and the
progress being made on .those .under
way the week waa full of all kinds of
announcements, which mean a greater
Portland.- Possibly the most gratify
ing of all was the news of the various
railroads , on which work has either
win and Fred M. Hopkins sold to Henry
C. Wolf the Peacher block at Mississippi
avenue and Russell street for 114.000.
After this sale Mr. Baldwin with F. O.
Downing purchased from the Ladd es
tate the building known as "the Brown,
at Grand and Hawthorne avenues. .The
nrlce paid Is not stated. -
Apartment houses continue to be
built. Permits for several were secured
during the week end the most notable
among these was the three-story one to
be erected at Eighteenth and una
streets by P. J. Bingham. It will cost
upwards of fll.000.
Xoosee Balnf Constructed,
' Operative .builders, also appear to be
active. ' Mrs. B. Marhard wtll erect two
houses on Upshur street near Twenty-
first They will -cost 11.000 each. Three
two-atory houses will be built by H. t.
Mclnnes at Kast Fifteenth and Anlceny.
They will be of colonial design and will
cost $1,000 dach. Mrs. D. Duback will
build two houses, oosting 11.000 each,
at Park and Jackson streets. Two cot-
New Horn of F. G. Smith, 657 Schuyler Street.
. .heavily of Portland realty, had formed
. a combination - with - John F. Cordray
and will build on the Dekum homestead
- - at Thirteenth and Morrison streets .a
' handsome, modern theatre. The plana
fbr thla structure, it is said, will call
. . . for five stories and the - amusement
'. "place wll cover the entire block, thus
giving - Portland hall . in which : the
largest kind of convention can be held.
For some time there have been reports
of what Mr. Sweeney Intended to do
- - with the Dekum homestead but that re
. gardlng the theatre la " evidently au
thentic. At one time it waa said that
the ground had been secured by the
Roman Cathollo church and a large ca
thedral would be erected thereon. Such
a theatre as Is evidently planned will
; no doubt be a good investment, for
. Portland is without a theatre building
'.. large enough for big conventions.

In addition to the new- building at
" Fifth and Washington streets another
- is to be erected in 'the same vicinity.
Captain D. E. Buchanan having secured
permit to erect a modern office bulld
ing on the -south side of Washington
treat between Fourth and Fifth. It
will join the SwetJand building. This
structure of Captain Buchanan's will be
alz stories in height, of brick, and will
J of the slow burning type. : The first
floor will be stores and the upper ones
wUl be divided into offices. The build
' ing will cost somewhere in the neigh
borhood of 170,000.

- With alfwihese new buildings coming
In It is gratifying to note that the city
; council will probably make changes in
the existing building laws, something
that haa been badly needed. It wet
rather surprising to many that the regu
lations contained nothing regarding re
started or will atart within a few weeks.
These Include . the Coos bay road, long
needed! the road into central Oregon,
and the Salem and Willamette valley
line. With all these ljnes being con
structed Portland will advance more
rapidly than aver, for they win develop
territory, especially the Una-to Coos
fbay and the one to central Oregon, that
haa long been Idie." "r.
Packing Xonses to Ba Built.
' Another piece of good newa wss that
the construction houses on the east side
will Start within SO days. It is said
these packing plants will give employ
ment to 1.000 hands, which will be a
big atride in Industrial Portland. . With
the coming of these packing - houaes
there will be other lines, therefore the
indications are most excellent ' for a
large and healthy lnduatrial develop
ment within the next year, in fact the
outlook ia more encouraging than - it
haa 'been for several months. -
The dinner of the Portland realty
board the other evening- waa a great
success and possibly the address which
had In it the beat practical uggeatlon
was that of County Assessor 81gler. His
remarks about the city's low- tax rate
of 1.1 mills was evidently taken home
by every real estate man and it is
likely that a number of the real estate
operators will have thla Information put
on their letterheads and thus spread It
broadcast that Portland haa the lowest
city tax rate of any city on the Pacifla
coast. Mr. 81glera auggeation that the
tax rate should be widely advertised is
a very good one and one of much prac
tical value. If the real estate men calf
attention to It. in their correspondence
with eastern Investors it will no doubt
have much weight In, ' Influencing cap
ital toward-Portland. 1 111 r r i p
