besrite tha fact that the month of
August is counted the dullest In the real
estate world, transfers In city realty
have maintained astonishingly high fig
ures, it Half of .August has passed with
no decrease In th records, of sales over
other recent months, and a very assur
ing ' increase over the records of any
previous August Real estate men look
upon this condition as very encouraging
and aa a prediction of a heavy fall
movement In Portland real estate. .
. -, ' , Watching rroperty.
Real estate dealers ninanlmously look
forward to the fall for a greater move
ment In real-estate thaa heretofore.
There are acorea of quarter blocks near
the retail districts that progressive real
estate dealers are watching with the
expectation that there will be Interest
ing outcomes connected ' before the
winter ahall have passed. Visiting real
estate dealera are astounded at the
amall amount of cash needed to move
these unimproved buaineaa altea aad the
opportunities and unfound fortunes that
lie In them.
i There la alao the fact that reaTestate
in Los Angeles and Seattle la not mov
ing with the accustomed sprlghtllneaa. A
close observer who has lived tn Seattle
stated yeaterday that dealers there all
ay that real estate la aot moving in
that city as easily as It haa for the past
few . years. Theae conditions in , the
neighboring cities, they say. tend to
show that Portland la demanding tbe
attention of those who actually buy
real eatate for residence and business
purposes and which they intend per
manently to improve.
" California Ds crease. :
Los Angeles papers that closely watch
the realty market, commented last week
upon the decrease of real estate trans
fers during the month of July over
tnose of one year - ago. In a rapidly
growing city, such aa Is Los Angeles,
a decrease in real casta transfers msans
considerably more than does aa ln
creaae. No apparent cause can be
foumt for the condition except that
values have arisen to that height where
they cannot be maintained. Purchasers
do not feel they can offer mora so hold
ings are not changing hand a.
nl Portland there haa not been the
Inflation of- valuea that haa been the
case both In Seattle and Los Angeles.
Several Influential real eatate dealera
have worked conscientiously to keep
this factor out of the local realty
market, in a general way. Thla is a
dlfflcuir undertaking unless there is a
general conservative tone prevailing.
Such a condition does prevail in Port
land and always has, sometimes to Its
detriments It is freely expreased, now,
however, that Portland will benefit from
thla conservatism in matters of real
estate and tall buildings where other
cities have overdone themselves.
Some real eatate dealera also freely
express the opinion that Portland's
available residence sites situated ou the
high hill sides, such as the Council

residents do not. appreciate the tine

While the oats crop Is short In the

Leavenworth. Kaa, Aug. 14. On the
opening tomorrow of the new terra of
the Infantry and Cavalry echool at
Fort Leavenworth, the name will be

This school is the principal one of the
three military service schools eatab
Itatied at rort Leavenworth. The other
two achoola, the Army Htaff college ana
the Slvnal school, sprung from it
Thla will bslhe third change in name
since ths sellout waa started 10 years
ago. When the achool waa organised In
Ma v. 1KS1. It waa designated "The
School of Application for Infantry and
Cavalry." It waa changed shortly af
terward to "Infantry and Cavalry
School." There are several reasons for
the new change in name, ana one is
that student officers from all branches
of the aervlce, Instead of only Infantry
and cavalry, attend It now.
The Importance of the military ser
vice schools . here Is increasing each
year. The rank' of the student offi
cers Is higher than formerly. Before
the Spanish-American war-only lieuten
ants, and moatly second lieutenants,
were the etudenta. On reopening after
the SpanlBh-Amerlcaa war, captains
were detailed to attend the achool and
now majors are included for etudenta.
