Kllers Piano House, .6S-35S Washing
We realise that only by means of the
most extraordinary Inducements can we
sell our pianos under such unfavorable
conditions, lt'a an easy matter for us
to sell our pianos when they sre die-
flayed in coxy and fitting surroundings,
t's an altogether different thing to ask
you to come into a great big uncomplet
ed, barn-Ilk .place,- with no other at
traction probably than the great big
new olate Klaaa show windows. We
know there is only one way for us to
aeit. lots or pianos now... we nave a
termined upon that way; : :
We present tomorrow morning, the
verv finest of hlah-errade instruments.
Beautiful Webers and Haseltons, of
New York. ' The now famous Kimball,
Chicago's greatest piano, and then the
finest and most glorious of them all.
the Chlckerlng of Boston, and there are
also beautiful Hobart M. - Cables and
Crown-Orchestral pianos and 'Marshall
eb Wendells and dosens of others, each
make the very finest in 'its respective
cutss. And all of these pianos were
specially select ed for display during the
opening -week of "the bigger and the
be,.er and the busier .fellers Piano
'House. ..; s: . ... ,.
- - - We Cut the Price.- -,
But that Is not all. We not only present-
the very choicest of instruments,
but we are offering them at a price far
below the usual retail selling price and
at a figure that will barely cover the
factory cost and freight. It is not a
question of profit-making with us now.
We must get rid of ths goods.
Then, again, ws shall be glad to have
you arrange the matter of payments to
suit yourself. - Everything will be
marked at the actual cash cost. But
any piano ' will be obtainable at the
cash figure plus simple interest on
terms of payment to suit any reason
able buyer. If you cannot pay all cash,
pay ev -little 'now and a few dollars
eeery month. 1-f you ere) wot prepared-:
to pay any money , now, come in any
way. We will send you a piano and you
can pay when ready. ..
, Perhaps YouH Rent One.
If .you are not in a position to buy a
piancP ail, come in ana rent one. we
nhallMnarae no cartaae to any one rent
ing a piano sis month or longer. If
you wtli rent a piano three months we
will ask you to pay but one-half of the
cartage charges. We must get rid of a
lot of pianos quickly, and it is not going
to be our fault If we don't. In SDlte
of tha wonderfully, heavy-gajejuirihelhjgll jrtndajwr-aesSThe. CoJumbtaUja,

is full to overflowing. The pianos in
tended for our October reoDenlna are
In, the November shlrlmenta are in, and
December shipments are soon due to ar
rive. Of genuine Chlckerlng pianos
alone there are four monster carloads,
aver 4S,000 worth, to. come within the
week, and there are Just as many
Webers, and still more Weber Pianola
Pianos, and carloads upon carloads of
every other kind of high-class instru
ments on the way.
You see the fix we are in. - Bo, even
though It will very much upset piano
conditions temporarily;, we are going' to
simply - slaughter our pianos until our
store is definitely in snaps ana reopenea.
We hone it will be but a short time.
We surely will terminate the sale the
moment matters are arranced-
- Tib upstairs. Is to be. arranged firaUi
while we are selling pianos in the un
completed downstairs. Then the down
stairs will . be finished and weir- sell
upstairs. And the work will be rushed
forward now with sll possible haste.
Here Are Some Prices.
If you are thinking of getting a piano
coma In today or Tuesday. Ws had
occasion once to sacrifice a lot of regu
lar 1275 pianos for flM. We said we
thought they never could sgaln be ob
tained at such a low figure. But la
our present predicament we are going
to sell forty-seven of these now for
1177 each, nay, 117 or less down, and f,
yes, even 1 5, a month.
All of our standard $428 and ' S4G4
pianoa are going to go for 28 and 124
and some of tne plainer casee can be
had for 12(2. Sams terms aa the above
If you like
will fake actual factory cost and
freight for some very fancy and most
costly highest grade uprights that were
ordered especially lor , tne Portland
trade. -There' are some choice pianos in
mission design oases among them. Ws
don't want to take chances carrying any
oi these over the Holidays into Uie next
year. Terms of lit a month, yes 111 a
.month, or say 140 or 150 svsry three
months, buys them.
Bear In mind that everything sold by
Xllsrs ,iano. House Is posUlvelywarr
ranted, no matter wnat ine price paio.
The store will be 'kept open Tuesdsy

select a Piano for Thanksgiving. Re

BRITISH COLUMBIA MILLS

Steamer Duneric Will Carry Lumber
From Victoria to San Francisco at
About Half the Rate Charged From
Washington and Oregon Ports.
.Lumber freights between Oregon and
Washington ports and San-Franolsco
and other points along the California
coast "havs-Jumped from 17. SO to $1.60
and tl a thousand feet and the result
la that brokers find It profitable to en
gage forelgh craft and ship lumber
from ths British Columbia mills and pay
the duty of II per thousand. Foreign
bottoms are willing to carry lumber
from British Columbia to San Francisco
for ff a thousand, so that sven addjapa
tbe dttt y, the lumber csn be laid do"
In Ban Francisco for II less than that
shipped from the American ports.
This, It is believed, will throw sn
enormous amount of - business to the
British Columbia mills and also Induoe
a big fleet of foreign craft to engage In
the trade of hauling umbcr on the
coast. As stated in The Journal a few
dayiago, the British steamer Duneric,
now in this port dlschsrglng-a cargo ef
ooal from Nanslmo, has been chartered
by - Frank Waterhouso a Co. to carry
lumber on the coast. She will leave
Portland in a few days for Victoria, B.
C, to load for Baa Franolsco, ' and - the
probability Is that she will be retained
In the service for a long time. The
Duneric will carry about 1,000,000 feet
of lumber so that even at IS a thousand
feet ehe will prove a big money maker,
for her owners.
Shipowners as well as dealers la lum-
ber are of the opinion- that the high
frelghta will continue for a long time
and this Is tempting capital Into bot
