A CHANCE FOR INVESTMENT
Demand Greater This Spring Than
Ever Before For Cottages
On an average of twice a season for
the past dozen or more years, The Ar
gus has found it its duty to call atten
tion to the lack of a sufficient number
of tenement house of moderate rental
to accommodate the rapidly increasing
population. "While the record of build
ing improvements published in The
Argus at the close of each year has
shown that these suggestions have not
been "unheeded, yet the city has ex
panded and extended so much more
steadily than has the march of build
ing improvement with all that has been
done, that each springtime has found
the demand for houses greater than
the supply. This is as usual the ex
perience this year.
The statement may be safely ven
tured that today not less than one hun
dred medium priced houses, that would
rent from say $12 to $18 per month
would find ready takers. Further than
this a number of even higher rated
tenements would not go begging.
Flat AImo dcA.
What is true in the matter of houses.
would apply with equal emphasis to
the flat question. Flat buildings in all
sections of the city would undoubtedly
prove profitable investments.
The capitalist who wants to realize
quickly on his investment has only to
put up a number of tenement houses or
flat buildings, and help the town as
well as himself.
GOES TO THE PENITENTIARY
William T. McDonald Sentenced to

William T. McDonald, who entered
a plea of guilty to a charge of perjury
