Boost for High Bridge Here
The petitions that arc being
circulated for a high bridge at
St. Johns nro being signed quite
generally, and only in very rare
instances are encountered cases
where an individual refuses to
Bign for this important project.
That a high bridge at this place
would prove a great boon for the
lower Peninsula in particular
cannot bo gainsaid. And it
would prove of great benefit and
convenience 'for the farmers back
of the western hills on the other
Bide of the river as well, to say
nothing of the grand scenic route
it would servo as the connecting
and crowning link of in the
round trip from Portland to St.
Johns and return. With the
beautiful curving and delight
fully nlonsnnt drive on the Wil
lamette boulevard skirting the
Willamottc river all the way on
the East side, then tho high
bridgo at St. Johns, and tho
smooth Linnton road on tho
West side, what a delightful af
tor dinner drive the high bridge
here would prove tho culmina
tion ofl No visitor to Portland
would want to leave the city
without making this trip. The
farmers in tho Tualatin valley
would And it of immense value
becauso much of their product
could bo marketed at the local
stores and most of tlioir business
and shopping could be transacted
here, and tho trade now going
from Linnton to Portland coujd
in large mcusuro bo diverted to
St. Johns through tho medium
of tho high bridge. Besides it
would shorten the distance be
tween St. Johns and the busi
ness district of Portland sovor
al miles. Thcso aro a few of tho
benefits that could bo derived
from a high bridgo at St. Johns,
and there aro others that might
also bo mentioned. But these
aro enough to convince any ono
that tho high bridge project is of
major importance. Ihollrst step
toward securing tho bridgo is
tho circulation of petitions and
tho more names secured natural
ly tho more effect tho samo will
have with tho powers that be.
Every citizen should append his
signature to ono of tho petitions,
as they will soon bo turned into
tho county commissioners. A

New Road Progressing
Motorists in the St. Johns dis
trict will have the conveniences
of tho new Willamette cutofr be
tween September 10 and 15, ac
cording to road men engaged in
putting the finishing touches to
the surface of the macadam road
along tho river from Willamette
boulevard to Delay and Russell
streets. The route for motorists
from the Willamette district
through to town hus formerly
been via Interstate street, Em
erson street and Album avenue
along Mississippi to the Broad
way bridge. When the new
cutoff is thrown open to tho nub
lie fully ono and onchalf miles
will be trimmed from tho morn
ing and evening mileage of the
northwestern dwellers and a new
macadam road. 30 feet wide and
affording a splendid view of the
city and tho river will be add
ed to the pleosure of driving to
and from that section of tho
city. The load was cut through
tho sand hills above the site of
the Portland Flouring Mills and
the Album yards, and runs along
the blufi whero cuts and hills
hnvo made n gradual grade from
the terminal heights to bridge
level at Delay street. At the
southern end the cutoff strikes
Delay street, turns into Kusscii,
and allows its future volume of
traflic to pour through Cioldsmiih
street into Larrabeo. 1 lie oner

Planning For a Hospital
Indications nro that St. Johns
mnv soon have a hospital. Tho
I'wcll known Chipmnn residence
'on Willamette boulevard and
Trumbull street hns been secur
ed and plans are being develop
ed whereby this fine homo mny
be utilized for hospital purposes,
more concerning which will bo
made public as the plans mater
ialize. Mrs. George Atchison,
chairman of tho special hospital
committee of tho St. Johns Com
munitv club, will likely submit
a report outlining tho plans at
the next meeting of that club,
and it is believed that the mem
bers of tho club nnd other citi
zens will lend their support to
wards the project. Dr. U. II.
Palmer, who had considerable
experience in hospital work, is
taking a leading part in the pro
position. Tho site of tho proposed hos
pital is most ideal and u splendid
view of the river and the west
side hills is airordqd. The Chip
man homo is a large, well built
structure and in first class con
dition. It is believed that enough
room is nvnilnblo for a couplo of
dozen beds, besides the other
roomH noccBsiry in a hospital
building. It would do very well
with a few alterations to start
