Statements Issued Today
Washington, June 5. President Wilson, in a telegram today
to officials of the railroad brotherhoods, criticized congress for
ailing to take action with regard to the high cost of living, the
conclusion of peace and important domestic legislation.
The telegram was in reply to a mes-

THe executive said that in the light ot
the record of the present congress "I

relief of the economic conditions to
which you call attention.
Politics Dominate Session.

This is shown by records in the of

valuation set by revenue stamps af
fixed to warranty deeds filed subse
quent to the first of the year.
Recorder's fees amounted to $4,

dicative of the unusual amount of

the first five months of the n.ew year.
Property descriptions show that a
considerable portion of the county's
total of transactions originated in the
city of Salem.
Salem's Growth Indicated
Within a very short time, Salem
residents expect to nave definite in-
formation concerning the city's pop
ulation. One very good pointer to the
direction in which the wind blows'
found ln the '"creasing number of
real estate transactions in Salem and
During March 1920, 338 warranty
deeds were entered on the files of
the county recorder's office. April's
work Is placed at about 300, while
the number of bona fide transfers for
May is estimated at 850. From the
Increased number of business trans
fers and property exchanges in the
city of Salem, many census prognos-
ticators have based their predictions
that the returns will show a substan
tial increase over the 1910 enumer
atlon. . ;
To handle the unusual volume of
business, 93 real estate brokers and
two well established abstracting firms
are kept busy. In addition to these
forces, County Recorder Brooks has
been" obliged to have additional of
flee crew and office space during the
past four months.
Increase In Dculg
In 1910 when Salem's population
was given as 14,000, there were about
thirty real estate dealers in this city.
Now with an estimated Increase of
about 4000, Salem has 93 real estate
offices. In proportional calculation,
Salem is better blessed than Portland
In this regard, the Oregon real estate

that the Rose City has 750 land brok

slightly more than 250,000 as a basis,
the larger city has one real estate deal

In Salem, the brokers appear to be
more popular as the Capital city can
