PAVE THE STREETS
Shall Ontario I'avc its streets' That
is the question to the lore these days, ami
MM that will receive the attention Of th
residents until it is answered.
Judging by the expressed opinions of
most of the business men, and that applies
too, to the heavy tax payers. Ontario should
answer the question in the affirmative. The
oulv difference of opinion seems to he on the
amount of paving that should be undertaken
at one time.
This is the proper time for the city to
consider paving its streets. As was pointc!
out at the recent meeting of the Oomtner
cial club by J. H. Hlaekaby, the city has now
an adequate water system, with mains cov
ering practically the entire city. The mv
erage system has been extended until tin
entire area is served, and with all the im
deiyround work done the next logical step
is to proceed to place an adequate turfsri
on the streets.
There is no need to recount the argil
incuts in favoring of paving. It must be
granted that if Ontario is to keep its place in
the ranking communities of this section its
streets should be paved. And since this is
realized and admitted there are but three
thinus to consider in this connectien: first,
how much paving shall be done; second,
what kind of paving shall he laid' and how
shall the cost DC apportioned, as to intersec
tions, granted of course that the property
adjacent to the street pays for the pavement

mercial club, when the subject was raised.
two plans have been put forward, one calls
for the paring of only the business section,
including the street hading to the passengei
statioiT, while the other would extend tin
improvement and cover about 90 blocks, in
cluding not only Oregon street, but the sid
streets and Richardson street.
If the support of property owners can
be secured for the larger program, well and
gOOdf let it be adopted, but if that can QOl
be done, then a more restricted area should
There is no need at this tune to discusd
the kind of paving to be laid. There will
be time enough for that when the Oouucii

to rh. woivIm of its corrcsdondent at
Salem, the Portland Oregonian declares that
the proposed constitutional amendment in
.,liir.rl bv HmtroNcutiiti vc P. J. (lallaidier
providing 'for the State Uuarantee of In
terest on irrigation 1101ms ior uve umn, -.
the most constructive piece of legislation to
be introduced at this session. This rcslou-
tion passed both houses unanimously and
will be voted upon by the people.
This is oiilv one of several measures
sponsored bv Mr. Gallagher which are of
more local interest, and the fact that lie ha -secured
their approval by his colleagues,
stiiinps his record in the legislature halls as
successful. Mr. Gallagher hai made good.

constitutional amendment resolution has pur

want the state to develop the have but to
give then- approval of this amendment and
development will follow.
The thing to do now is to organize
sentiment in favor of the amendment and to
educate the people on the Wcstside of the
Cascades SI to its possibilities for the bene
fits of the State. Eastern Orepmians
will appreciate what such a measure can ac
romplish but it will be necessary to get sup
port from the people of Multnomah eountp
and the Wilnmette Vallej put it over. Let a
