The editorial in the Saturday edition of the Capital Journal comments upon the apartments under construction on Court Street:

The new apartment house on Court street being erected by Messrs. Rogers and McNary is a modern improvement and will be an ornament to that beautiful street, opposite Salem’s attractive park blocks. It is worthy of note because it illustrates the faith these gentlemen have in the city and its future. Mr. Rogers last year erected one of the best business blocks in Salem, disregarding the prevailing business depression, and it is still going ahead investing his money in Capital city improvements. This is the kind of boosting which builds up communities by inspiring confidence and setting an example to other property owners to invest their money here and pin their faith to their home town.
