for travel. A3 a result of this
action the bridge has lost all of
its charm as a pleasant afternoon's
walk, for pedestrians do not enjoy
a walk across the bridge where
they are compelled to "use the drive

deep, and where team3 must be

One of Portland's Foremost Establishments

Demands for Rent 20 Per Cent
(Before the Fire) and 33 1-3 Per Cent Higher Than in
Seattle, Make Continuance Impossible. Entire
Stock of Fine Pianosland Organs to Be
Closed Out. Sale Now On-
Owing to the unreasonable demands
of a frenzied landlord, Eilers Piano
House has reluctantly decided lo abandon
the retail piano and organ business in
Portland. Continuance - would mean
the payment of practically the entire
earnings of our retail business for rent, nor
would it even then secure the urgently
needed alterations and repairs that the
growth of our business has made neces
sary. The owners arrogantly refuse to
make them, and we cannot afford to
undertake them for the reason they will
not enter into a lease except from
month to month.
Thus it is that Eilers Piano House is
compelled to retire from the retail field,
and as possession i f the premises is to be
delivered up on May 31 next, the entire
stock of goods, the finest, most exten
sive and most complete in- the United
States must be disposed of before that

of the numbers, ranging from the concert
Adagio Op. 256 Volckmar, to the

such as to demonstrate both the skill of
Prof. Taillandier and the possibilities of
the instrument, which had an exquisite
tone. . . . '
Prof. Tallandier's brief descriptive ad
dress, as well as his explanations of the
numbers, added -ouch to the enjoyment
