officials hare bought privately owned
land for public purposes.
'The time is at hand when all ad
ministrative officials must be held
to a stricter accountability for their
acts in acquiring property for public
use. It . is extremely doubtful if this
block 95 could be sold to a private
purchaser for more than its assessed
value, but it is being offered now to
the city for more than twice its
value, and if the deal goes through
the taxpayers will have to dig up
the money."

tute. Mrs. 10. A. Jobes also suggested
the sending of chocolate, cut sugar
and small cakes of sweet chocolate in
preference to apples. Mrs. Jobes also

A. Mayhead of North Portland has for

His eldest son. A. H. Mayhead, who
is 21 and assigned to the Army Serv
ice Corps, sent the card, which is of
the sort soldiers are required to use
in communicating with relatives. It
is a printed form with phrases con
veying the few shreds of information
the censorship allows. Phrases that
do not suit may be crossed out, leav
ing the message. And so all Mr. and
Mrs. Mayhead found unerased on their
son's card was: "Dear Dad and Mother

Sunnyside District. .
Overburdened taxpayers are watch
ing with considerable interest a prop
osition that was recently out un to
city council to buy a stte in the
bunnyside aistrict for a community
club home. A plan has been submit
ted tc the city commissioners by a
number of east side civic organiza
tions suggesting that a site be pur
chased adjoining Ladd's park in Lau
relhurst, on which to build the pro
posed clubhouse. The location is
block 95, a parcel 300x640 feet, locat
ed at East Stark and East Thirty
ninth strocts, and adjoining Ladd's
park on the south. This property has
been offered to the city on a five year
lease, provided a J30.000 building is
erected on it, and that the city pay
tlie street assessments and the taxes,
and with the further provision that
the city may purchase the property
for $70,700.
Property Would Revert.
It is understood that if the city
does not buy the property, that the
$30,000 building and other improve
ments revert to the owners. The
street assessments due on the block
are in the neighborhood of $7500, and
the annual taxes are $925. This block
is assessed for 1914, under the Som
ers system, at $34,700, or just 47
per cent of the price for which it Is
being offered to the city.
In view of the fact that the city
commissioners only recently paid
nearly three times the assessed value
of a piece of land as a site for a
detention home for women, at the
very time when property was selling
at a widely advertised, public auction
for about one and one half times its
assessed value, there is some appre
hension felt lest the taxpayers are
again made to pay a fancy price for
land needed for public uses.
At the Fred A. Jacobs auction, held
last month, which was attended by
over 1000 people, several parcels of
city property were sold at an average
price of about one and one half times
their assissed value.
Must B Accountable.
Two weeks ago Charles K Henry
conducted a public auction of resi
dence properties, and in no instance
did any of the parcels offered by
Mr. Henry sell for more than one and
one half times its assessed value. In
fact, two Laurelhurst pieces were as
sessed for 1915 taxes for 70 per cent
of the price they brought at the
