FINE HIGHWAY
"America's Foremost
the Expectation
is
Tho city of Linnton is progres
sing right along with its propos
ed scenic roadway, which is
eventually expected to bo Amer
ica's foremost scenic highway.
It will bo valuable to St. Johns,
in that the admirable location
und natural advantages of the
lowe peninsula will bo display
ed in almost their entirety to all
who travel over the new high
way. St. Johns has 'an opportu
nity to construct a highway that
would be n counter attraction by
improving Willamette boulevard
its entire length, and have tho
county continue tho thoroughfure
encircling tho lower peninsula.
That a high bridge will connect
the new highway with St Johns
eventually is not a wild dream.
Sunday's Oregonlan devoted con
siderable space, including sever
al largo illustrations, to depicting
tho beauties of Linnton's new
highway, of which wo clip the
following:
Portland's greatest highlinc
I boulevard will stretch its devious
way over tho West Side hills,
between tho northerly part of
Willamette Heights and tho. town
of Linnton, and will cover a dis
tance of 14 miles. Tho surveys
have been completed and all pre
liminary details have been ar
ranged with tho exception of
thoHlgningof rightof way deeds.
It is expected to complete title
to tho right of way this week.
Tho territory to be served by
tho boulevard comprises about
4000 ncrcs.and as it was recently
annexed to the town of Linnton,
the proposed improvement will
bo made by tho creation of a
bonded district. By tho middlo
of August actual construction
. work will bo under way, it is de
clared. . , . , ,
That tho proposed boulevard
will have few equals, if any, on
tho continent is the belief of all
persons who have visited the
West Side hills, where tho road
way will be built. It is tho am
bition of its promoters to make
it "America foremost scenic
boulovard."
Thoy point out that' from any
anglo of this 14 mile driveway
sweeping views of tho city, riv
ers and mountains to tho east and
north aro presented in striking
detail and color, whilo in tho dis
tant background three towering,
Bnow capped sentinels Mount
Hood. Mount Adams and Mount
St. Helens form the resplendent
features of tho matchless pano
rama. It will bo along this scen
ic boulovard that tourists and
visitors will view Portland and
its environs and go forth, sing
ing their praises of the natural
beauties that surround tho city,
much tho same way they do now
after trolley rides up to Council
Crest
Looking towards tho west,
broad views of tho country also
will present themselves, and
whilo less striking, they will
prove, nevertheless, intensely in
teresting with tho decided con-
f..ict In tnnnirrnnliV. Tho boillo-
vard will rise to an altitude of

Wifin nnnffis fnr narkinor will be
provided on either side of the

acres will be devoted to partes

in discussing the project yester-
"The boulevard as now located
will start at tho present end of
Thurman street on Willamette
Heights at an elevation of 300
feet and follow a general north
westerly course to Linnton. The
first one and one-half miles is on
a four per cent grade, reaching
an elevation of GOO feet. The
summit is at the crossing with
tho Salzman road at an elevation
of G80 feet. It crosses tho Ger
mnntown road at tho old rock
crusher and then down on a four
per cent grade to the St. Helens
road in Linnton. Throughout us
entire length.M miles, the grade
docs not oxceed four per cent ex
cent where some existing road
or street is followed. Tho long
est continuous grade is one and
one-half miles and over half, or
seven miles, is on a level grade.
On all points where advantage
views can bo obtained, and they
aro innumerable, wide turns are
made on level grades? thus per
mitting automobile parties to go
slow or stop and enjoy the view
without fenr of accident on ac
count of tho grade. From theso
numerous points, some or all of
ortlnnd, Southeast 1'ortiand,
-last Portlnnd, Monlavilla, St.
Johns, Linnton and Vancouver,
are in view, as well as tho nu
merous towns along the North
Bank railroad up tho Columbia
river for (10 miles. This view is
exceptionally good in tho after
noon when tho sun is at the
back of the sightseer. Tho wa
ter view includes tho Willamette
from its mouth to tho Oaks, tho
Columbia from ten miles below
Vancouver to Capo Horn, and all
akes and Islands in that district.
Mounts Hood, St. Helens, Adams
and Ranicr and tho Cascade
lango complete tho picture.
Windimr in and out of tho can
yons, one crosses many beautiful
mountain streams and passes
through numerous places that
uivc never been touched by tho
oirorer. This featuro alono will
bo a big thing in a country noted
or its timber. The beauties 01
tho parking in these places when
made accessible can scarcely bo
imair nod. Somo Idea of tho
country can bo gained by consid
er ntr the tact that lrom 1110

boulevard s but live miles, whilo
its length is fourteen miles, or
almost three times as great
From looking at the hills thru
which this boulovard will run,
one would imagine mat it is a
stoop, worthless place. Such is
far lrom boing tho case. At an
elevation of from 300 to COO feet
tho lulls ntten out to a very
gradual Blope.about like tho west
slope of Mount Tabor, and it is
through this country that tno
loulovnrd runs at a general ele
vation of GOO feet When ono
realizes this fact, tho boulovard
no longer seems impossible, or
expensive. In fact, tho cost will
bo less than ?buuu a m lie, accord
ing to tho estimate made from
tho comnleto survey. Tho boul
evard winds back into the ra
vines and crosses the streams
without bridges. Culverts will
nrovide for tho water and fills
will bo made.
The park strip 120 feet wido
below tho 80 foot right of way
for tho road will insure the view
from obstruction by buildings
and will provide approximately
225 acres of natural park in addi
tion to tho 120 acres in the right
of wav. The. 80 foot strip will
contain tho boulevard and on tho
upper side room is reserved for
a car line. Tho car line will con
nectwith the Willamette Heights
line and boulevard will later con
npct with the Portland svstem
of boulevards through Macleay
Park and the City Pork. On the
lower end it is a very feasible
plan to start at tho crossing
with the uermantown roau and
continue down tho river at an
approximate elevation of 500 feet
Richard Shepard, who organ
ized the property owners and
who has been directing the pro
motion of the project is of the
opinion that a large percentage
of the erradincr wi be comn eted
before the l;all rains set in. tie
savs that all property owners
affected are extremely enthusias
tic over the enterprise and are
anxious to have tho roadway
completed as soon as possible.
"In addition to the large
amount of land dedicated to the
enterprise, the cost to the prop
erty owners will be between
$110,000 and $130,000," said Mr.
Shepard. "Within a few years
we expect to pave the, boulevard
for its entire distance, and this
will mean a large additional ex
nenditure. We feel, however,
that it will prove not only a great
advertising feature for 1'ortiand
but also an important step in the
development of the West Side
hills. Along tho route of the
boulevard there will be big ac

A SplendidMovement
That would-be settlers coming
to Oregon have, in many in
stances, been victimized by un
scrupulous land speculators and
that the state as a whole has
been injured by their operations,
is a statement made at the an
nual convention of Oregon bank
ers recently held at Corvnllis,
and tho attending delegates ex
pressed a determination to co
operate with the commercial
bodies throughout tho state in nn
effort to put greedy real estate
men out of business. The plan
docs not contemplate the entire
elimination of land selling agen
cies, but does propose to annihi-
atc the sharks who have been
speculating in good Oregon soil,
taking out of production and
holding it for nn unreasonable
mcreaso in price. It was decided
to form an appraisement commit
tee in each community to pass
on tho prices of lands, the com
mittee to consist of two mem
bers of the local commercial
body and ono bankcr.and intend
ing purchasers will be advised
to purchase no real estate from
any dealer until the value 01
same has been passed upon by
the ntmra Bcrs and tho price ask
ed decided to bo a reasonable one.
t was stated as n fact that much
of the agricultural land in Ore
gon is hold at too high a figure.
There Is doubtless plenty of good
and which can bo obtained at
a fair price, but the newcomer,
usually unfamiliar with local
values and conditions, seldom
leara of that land. Tho commit
tee will sco that ho gets a square
deal.

COUNCIL MEETS
Matters of Importance
Receive Attention
All members were present at
die rcirular meeting of tho city
council Tuesday evening, with
Mayor Brcdeson presiding.
A committee from the Com
mercial club, consisting of II.
W. Bonhnm and Secretary J. E.
Iillor, suggested that tho city
donate the necessary finnnce3 for
mvlng tho city streets Jersey
from Richmond to Fesscndcn
and Burlington and Philadelphia
between Jersey and Hayes ap
propriately decorated in honor of
tho Firemen's celebration and
the Sweet Pea and School Gar
den exhibits on July 4 and 5.
"hoy also suggested that the city
purchase tho decorations out
right so that it would have thorn
for future use. After some dis
cussion it was decided to donate
$250 out of tho city exchequer
for tho purpose, and Alderman
Vincent was appointed as a com
mittee of ono to arrange with
the Commercial club committee
and tho Firemen's committee
or tho purchnso and placing of
the decorations.
A petition was received pray
ing for a change in the grade on
tichmond street between Smith
avenue and f esscndcn street.
The contract had already been
et for tho improvement of the
street, and tho council deemed
t too late to make tho desired
change, oven though it wns ap
parent that the change should
be made. The contractor stated
that ho would require tho sum
of S500 before he would agrco to
stay tho work and relinquish the
contract.
A favorable report was rccolv
cd from tho engineer and street
committco rolat vo to tho pro
posed improvement of St Johns
avcmiQ between Edison and
Bruco streets, and condemnation
proceedings were ordered iiiBti
luted, making it sixty loot wide.
The viewers on the condemna
tion of Burr street reported that
the property owners Jinn ex
pressed a willingness to donnto
tho necessary land for street
purposes. Tho roport was ac
cepted and tho Recorder direct
ed to secure tho deeds.
Five bids were recoived on
tho improvement of North Leon
ard street between St. Johns nv
enuo and Bruco street, as fol
lows: M. T. Swan. $4,207.78;
W. S. Jeans, $4,447.22; J. Hahn,
$4,498.15: V. W. Mason, $4,274.-

58. The contract was awarded
to Mr. Mason, after an error In
his totnls had been corrected by
tho engineer, Tho orror niado
his bid almost $50 lower than the
original total, making his bid
tho lowest.
A. W. Davis asked for Infor
mation concerning tho status of
tho library proposition. As somo
of tho councilmen woro not very
clear on tho situation, a commit
eo consisting of tho city nttornoy
and Alderman Martin was ap
pointed to get in touch with tho
Portland Library association and
ascertain tho true status pf
affairs and report at next luos
day evening's session.
For tho first time within our
knowledge an ordinance was
passed over tho mayor's veto in
St. Johns. It was an ordinance
increasing tho speed limit from
eight miles to liiteen miles per
hour. Tho mayor believed that
it was best to keep tho speed
limit down, oven though it be
not enforced to tho letter. Tho
council believed otherwise, and
passed the ordinance unanimous

agreeing to deed to tho city all

Recorder was directed to secure
such deeds.
An ordinance providing for
cutting down of obnoxious weeds
reached third reading and was
held over for further considera
tion.
A strong remonstrance was
received against the proposed
improvement of Richmond street
between Willamette boulevard
and the river, but it represented
a couple of thousand square feet
of property less than the two-
thirds necessary to kill the im
nrovement. Tho matter, how
ever, was held over one week in
order that an estimate of tho ex
cess cost might be secured by
the engineer.

Domestic Happiness
Theodore Puis, chief probation
oiTicer of Milwaukee, Wis., has
promulgated tho following seven
rules for domestic happiness.
Ivovo. honor and obey your
husband.
Get breakfast for your hus
band, and sco that he is properly
clothed beforo ho goes to work.
Bo prompt with meals and ex
pect him to be prompt.
Keep your home, your children
and yourself neat and clean.
Don't tell lum all your petty
household troubles; meet him at
the door with a kiss and a smile.
Don't continually scold lum fn
past missteps. Cultivate tho
habit of forgetting disagreeable
th intra.
Approach the mother-in-law
question carefully it's danger
ous. Keep on good terms with
both mothers-in-law, but don't
tell your troubles to either.
Never allow your own mother to
reproach your husband.
Mr. Puis believes that, aside
from drink. mothers-in-law cause
most trouble.
. "A wife should allow her hus
band to get his own breakfast as
often as lie allows her to attend
to tho furnace," said Mr. Puis.
