Owing to the unreasonable demands
of a frenzied landlord, Eilers Piano
House has reluctantly decided to 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 bas 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 " ia the United
States must be disposed of before that
