SYNDICATE CLOSES BIG
DEAL FOR FRUIT LAND
Representing a syndicate of wealthy
Minneapolis Investors, Roy F. Elke
closed a deal yesterday afternoon for
the purchase of 126 acrea of fine fruit
lands located three mllea southwest of
the P. R. L. A P. Co.'s new power plant on
the Clackamas river. Th property be
longed to C. D. Bruun of the Blake-Mc-Fall
company and was sold for 118,009.
Mr. Flke said thla morning that hla
Minneapolis clients plan to put the en
tire tract In commercial apples, sub
divide It Into email orchard and sell
..oniy 10 euirrn ouyers. 1 ne main 01
flcea of the selling agency will be es
tabllahed In Minneapolis.
"While In Mlnneapolla aeveral . days
ago," said Mr, Flke, "on other buslneaa
I met several men of wealth, who ex
presned a keen Is teres t In Oregon fruit
lands. I was commissioned by them to
hunt up a large tract and submit it
to them. Lpon my return to Portland
I offered them the Bruun property and
they were bo well pleased with Ita lo
cation, the soil analysts and the price,
that I was authorized yesterday by
wire to close it.
"I found the eastern people to be tre
niondously Interested in Oregon, e-
pecLaily in Oregon fruit culture. From
what I was told by the buyers of the
Bruun property I have no doubt that it
Is their Intention to engage In the
handling .n the east of Oregon fruit
lands on a large scale."
Keasey, Humason & Jeffery hav sold
for J. O. Elrod to C. D. Bruun a 300
acre tract located three miles west of
Willamette Heights for $50,000.' Mr.
Bruun- bought the property for. speou
" lation and haa no Intention of sub
dividing it. The tract is heavllv tim
bered. It will be cleared and the tim
ber converted Into cordwood, of which
it la estimated there are 30,000 cords.
