The . name of Ilulett C. Merritt the
Pasadena capitalist does not appear on
the books . of , the tag assessor as; the
owner of any central city property In
Portland., However, it Is believed that
Mr. Merritt is heavily interested is the
syndicate that controls by lease the 60
by 100 feet at the northeast corner
of Fourth and , Washington streets.
where excavation is under way for the
foundation of a 12 story office build
ing. It is known that local people in
terested In the lease were negotiating
with Mr, Merritt and it was reported
at that time that he had agreed to fi
nance the project of improving the site.
It has been suggested that the Pasa
dena millionaire is holding his interest
in the Fourth and Washington street
property as a club over the Los Angeles
city council in the effort to induce that
body to allow him to put up his 230 foot
buiidingiln the California city.
