Hist Socey. ST. JOHNS REVIEW VOLUME 18 ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1922. NUMBER -II High irldge at St. Johns When will wo sco the most cs scntinl improvement proposed in Oregon t Petitions have been cir culated and placed on file witli the County Commissioners. Var ious organizations have endeav ored to get this great question before the public. In getting in formation regarding the ways and menus people have used in crossing the Willamette river since J 879, wc find that swim ming, row boats, launches and ferries have been utilized. Since that time tho Willamette river has been jovered with ice of suf ficient strength to carry horses and wagons. Wc find that the safest way to cross the river at this time is on a bridge. In the center of the city wc have several bridges which are hardly able to handle, the trafllc from one side of the river to the othor. Hut there are two more bridges neces sary and they are needed one in the south end and ono in the north end. The necessity of a bridge in St. Johns, or the north end, is more essential for var ious reasons, a few of which should convince every one. Ev erybody will agree that St. Johns is tho industrial end of Portland. There aro moro "industries in this particular section than in any other section in the city. Here you will find saw mills, venuni' plant, dry docks, cooperage, foundries, planing mill,, and oth er industries, besides U. S. sup ply yard and municipal terminals Nos. 3 and 4. Terminal No. 4 Is one of the best equipped in the United States. There aro thou sands of men and women em ployed in thoso various plants. Directly across tho Willamotto river arc saw mills, box factories, Standard, Shell, Union and Asso ciated Oil Co. plants, government moorings, gas plant, and tho new railway terminal freight yards. Tho plants on tho west side of tho river nro all on or ncur the Lower Columbia Highway, otherwise known as the Linnton Road. There is only ono road west of the Mississippi river that has a larg er traffic than tho Linnton Road. Thcro is only one ferry that bun dles all tho traffic between Kast Portland and Wont Portland north of tho Broadway bridge. This ferry has been proven to lie inadequate, as well as unsafe. In tho post few months' there have been several sad accidents. Tho last one occurred just a few ATTENTION Owing to unsettled situation of COAL MINES we advise all coal users to order their coal at once for future delivery.

Place yourself in the same position as the agonized father and mother, who recently lost three of their loved children. Think of the frantic family of tho late truck driver who was struck bv a train as he was headed down tho hill to get onto the ferry. These few sad facts alone should convince any person with a heart in their body the real necessity of a bridge. Dollars and cents ore nothing compared with human life. A dollar goes but will re turn, but n human life can never be brought back. A high bridge at St. Johns will take a great deal of tho trafllc from the Linnton Road, thereby eliminating the congestion to a great extent on the down town bridges. It would also connect the industrial section of the cast and west side. It would shorten the distance from tho center of the wholesale and retail district with Terminal No. 4, where most of our imported mutcrials arc lauded from tho foreign coun tries. A movement was recently started to get the county authori ties to take the necessary steps to get this proposed high bridge started at the earliest possible moment. This is the time to get behind the greatest necessity in Oregon. Forget personalities and individualities, hut DON'T FOUGHT to boost for the High Bridge at St. Johns. A Rooster.

There hnve been a great many nrrosts made nnd n lino of $20 nnd a sentence of two days in jail was given n man for not taking the time to cut weeds as the notieo called for. Ho said: "Judge, it is spite work." The judge was very curious to see whether or not the facts of tho ease were correctly presented, so he adjourned court and investigated for hint' self and declared upon his return thnt it was tho dirtiest piece of property in Portland, and sen tenced the man ns stated above. The authorities in charge of the weed campaign are not nnd will not persecute uny one, but will prosecute those who do not com ply with the ordinance that cov ers the abatement of the nui sance.

There have been quite a number of people who have said "It's all bunk," but chang ed their attitude as soon as a war rant was read to them, telling them to appear before the court at n certain time. People of the city should realize that there is no'"bunk" attached to this cam paign. We suggest to every one that they cut their weeds before tlie inspector gets around in your neighborhood.
