Most Important Improvement
Job on Hawthorne Avenue.
WILL MAKE SOLID FILLS
.More Than $300,000 Is in He Ex
pended by the City in Kast
Portland During the Next
Between eight and ten miles of per
manent pavement and embankment
costing more than $200,000 arc In store
for Central East Portland this Spring.
One of tne most important Improve
ments to be made as early as possible
Is the paving of Hawthorne avenue be
tween East Third to East Fortieth
street with bltullthlc pavement, and
the filling In of the avenue between
East First and East Third. The ob
ject "Is to make Hawthorne avenue an
important thoroughfare extending
eastward from Madison bridge. No op
position so far has developed against
this Improvement and the preliminaries
arc Wine pushed through the Council
so that work can be started this
Hawthorne avenue is 70 feet -wide
and paved and. being connected with
the county roads. It cannot fail to be
come a popular street. Already it Is
lined with many costly and beautiful
Will Fill All Streets.
Practically all streets in the low
ground, or warehouse territoryt be
tween Union avenue And the Wil
lamette River, are to be filled -with
solid embankments during tbe year.
Resolutions covering these streets have
passed through the Council, under the
guidance of Councilman Kellaher. who
sometime ago started this movement
for replacing all derated roadways
with embankments. These streets will
be filled either by dredger or by dump
cars, but probably by the former.
The 'experience of property owners
on East Washington. East Morrison
and. East Water streets Is that for
every dollar they put Into the embank
ments It has added two dollars to the
value of the adjacent property, besides
reduced the danger from Are raore
than one-half. Without moving more
than two or three .time xni remaining

land dreger a as found eaough ar

tween Xt AMer and XorrisoB streets

about five feet deep, and It is already
demonstrated that material ran be
taken from the Willamette River at
lss than one-half of what It cot to
fill East Washington and East Alder
Fill East Alder Street.
East Alder street will likely b the
first street to be filled with the dredger.
However, the block owned by Mitchell.
letvls & Stavcr on the south side of
Eart Morrison street will be filled finM.
Bulkheads will be built along East
Alder street and the pipes laid so as
to carry the material direct on that
rtreet. All thf cross streets may b
filled by the dredger direct from the.
Willamette River ono after the other.
A resolution also calls for the filling of
East Second street, and If a franchise
Is granted on East Third It will un
doubtedly carry a provision for the.
fijling of the street. The East Side Is
more interested In having this street
filled thon anything else.
The filling of the streets and blocks
up to tho basement floors In this ware
house territory means that the value
of the property -will be appreciated to
the value of the West Side property
similarly located. There now seem
nothing In the way of the Improvement
of East Stark with a solid fill to East

Improvements are those of Union ave

also will be paved with bltullthlc as
soon as the Grand avenue fill Is com
pleted, which will be several months.
It Is the Intention of the property
owners to Improve Grand avenue be

An Expensive Plan,
It is an expensive plan of nominating
and we fail to see wherein it Is an Im
provement over the old method. In some
cases the battle Is over, but many of the f
successful candidates will have their
hardest fight yet to come, and while It
Is generally conceded that a Republican
nominated is as good as elected, there
is grave danger of defeat in tho June
election. Having ben successful is only
half the battle, and thl., tho campaign
of 1905. will go down In history as the
most Interesting one ever known In an
Oregon state election.
