The Best Part of Portland
It was shown nt the meeting of
the Community Club on Tuesday
evening that the people of this
vicinity arc waking up to the fact
that the Peninsula is the best
part of Portland. Although a so
cial evening was the outlined pro
gram, a few remarks were mad.1
in regard to tho street car ser
vice ns is and as is not, but
should be. Mr. Pailey related
facts to the representatives of
the P. It. h. & P. Co. which eer
tninly expressed the views of all
persons that aro compelled to
ride the street ears to and from
Portland. There have been sev
eral soldi ions presented to the
company in tho past year, but
none have been found feasible
by the company. There have
been petitions signed by several
hundred men relative to service
that have not been acted upon.
After all is said we still have the
same service, but (he time is at
hand to show tho people of Port
land that the Peninsula is a por
tion of the city thiit will not be
overlooked as it has been in the
past. 'e hope thaj every one on
the Peninsula will 'give the com
mittee on car service their sup
Owing to the fact that it was
not a bttsiucriK meeting, a few
words as to the various import
ant improvements hi our vicinity
which should moot with t In ap
proval of every one were omitted.
The most important : The high
bridge at St. Johns. Over a year
ngo three men circulated peti
tions for a high bridge at St.
Johns and secured nearly 1'iiH)
sitrnatiircK. This petition was
presented to the County Com
YOUR FACE AND POCKETBOOK
MEN'S FALL AND WINTER
missionera and placed on tile. At
that time tho Commissioners stat
ed that they would do all they
could to get the bridge project
before the people. About ten
days ago a letter was presented
to the Commissioners asking
them to place the St. Johns High
Bridge project on the ballot at
tho next general election, which
comes in November, 1 11112. The
County Commissioners at this
time say they are going to put it
before tho people at the next gen
eral election. These three men,
with the assistance of a few oth
ers, have accomplished all that
is possible up to the present time
that is, the promise-of nut' pres
ent County Commissioners to
place this proposed improve
ment upon the ballot. There are
three other bridge projects to bo
placed on the ballot lturuside,
Itoss Island and Sellwood. Kneh
and every one of these projects
have merits which must not he
overlooked, but we. the people
on tho Peninsula, must also re
member that there never has been
such a great necessity for an im
provement of this kind on the
Peninsula as exists at the present
time. It is up to every uiiiii, wom
an and child to boost for the St.
Johns High Bridge.
The second important improve
unit : The necessity of improve
ments in Pier Park. Several
committees have called on Com
mmsioner Pier and Supt. of
Parks Keyser. and seemingly
have all received the same word
and eorteous treatment! "There
is not enough money available to
improve Pier Park unless bonds
are authorised to he sold by the
Stale Tax Conservation Commis
sion." It is up to the people of
St, Johns to show the Commission
