This Is the Time for City to
Renew Streets.
Flan ' lor Improvement Should Be
Followed for Three or Four Years,
"When" Portland "Would Be &
Well-Paved City.
Now is the time for Portland to fix up
Its pavements. Unless It repairs them
In the next three or four months they
will so without -Improvement for an
other year- Everybody knows what It
means for the pavements to endure an
other ""Winter In the present deplorable
condition. It means that they shall go
from bad to worse and even beyond the
range of the latter adjective.
It has been generally understood that
Btreet repairs made this Sum
mer. Summer Is already hero and not
even a plan for repairs has been made.
Soon Summer -will be over and then Im
provements -will be Impossible. The city
Is indeed confronted by a serious ques
tion. The city has expended over $2000 this
season on Sixth street. Property owners
"have had a lingering: hope that they
would fall heir to the same fortune. "But
they will not do so. There are not
enough funds at the disposal of the city
authorities to put streets In a condition
that the pride and reputation of the mu
nicipality require. It Is, therefore, up
to the owners of property adjoining paved
streets to make improvements. Unless
they do, the pavements by next Spring
will be an even greater disgrace to the
city. Besides, the cost of making re
pairs then will be far more than it wbuld
bo now. Property owners who think they
can save money by procrastination, are,
therefore, only wasting money.
Street Repair Fnnd Low.
The city authorities are repairing Sixth
street because of the expense to which
property owners on the thoroughfare have
been subjected In maintaining the pave
ment heretofore. It seemed to the city
authorities that Justice required this, in
asmuch as Sixth bears the heaviest traf
fic of any street and is the only paved
thoroughfare in that part of town. But
the city government will not take upon
itself further burdens in that line. The
part of the street repair fund for pave
ments Is running low and repairs to other
streets must necessarily be very limited.
They will amount to no more than a
patch here and there, and will be wofully
short of what is required.
Macadamized and graveled streets also
need repairs, and need them badly. On
many of them there has been no Improve
ment work for six or eight years. Their"
surfaces are worn down from the grade,
they are rough and unsightly, and, more
over, they detract from the reputation of
the city. If treated with a surface of
gravel they would be thoroughfares un
surpassed for excellence anywhere in the
United States.
Cause of Bad Streets.
The cause of the deplorable condition
of the streets lies In the universal desire
of property owners to make the other
fellow pay the money. The fundamental
law of the city Is a strong abettor of
this spirit. According to the present
charter abutting property Is to keep
streets In repair. The street Tepair fund
is limited to a levy of one-quarter of a
mill on the assessed valuation of the
city, but the council may transfer money
to the repair fund from the general fund.
These provisions of the charter have not
provided money enough for the purpose
intended, while property owners, hoping
that the repair fund would aid them,
have permitted streets to deteriorate.
Under the new charter wholesome reme
dies are provided. In the city ordinance
for improvement of a street, the Coun
cil will specify a definite period in which
the city will keep the thoroughfare in
good order. The repair fund will be
maintained by a tax levy of three-quarters
of a mill, by revenue from vehicle li
censes, and by transfers of money from
the general fund.
There are now three alternatives in re
gard to street repairs either property
owners shall pay for them, or their cost
shall be borne by the general fund, or
they shall be neglected altogether and
streets shall go from bad to worse.
The general disposition Is to wait for
the new charter. But It will be probably
a year before the new charter goes Into
effect. By that time some pavements
will be, perhaps, beyond redemption. Be
sides, the city government would not
attempt to make the repairs and property
owners would only waste their money.
Lack of system has been a great fault
oftreet. Improvements. Costly pave
ments have been laid without regard to
a comprehensive plan. The result Is that
the present system of pavements does not
distribute the burden of cost or mainte
nance equitably. Neither are the pave
ments In parts of the city where they
are the most needed. v
The City Council granted $20,000 for
street repairs this year. The Board of
Public "Works asked for $44,500. Of the
sum granted, $1600 was for asphalt pave
ments. But that amount was entirely
Inadequate, and the city authorities have
had to draw upon parts of the appro
priation intended for other street repairs.
All Streets Need Repairs.
There Is hardly a stretch of street pave
ment that does not need patching or more
extensive repairs. Of the 43 miles of
macadamized streets, about half require
redressing. The mileage of improved
streets in the city is as follows:
Macadam ........ 43
Gravel 47
Plank ... 17
Etone block 4.2
Asphalt ........ 3.2
Wood block 1.5
Brick 1
Bridges , 8
Sidewalks, wooden soq
Sidewalks, cement, stone and brick 20
Crosswalks, wooden 41
Crooswalks, stone 1.17
City Engineer Chase, who has made
streets hte especial study while ne. has
been In office for the past six years, gives
It as his opinion that the best kind of
Improvement .materials are stone block,
brick, asphalt and macadam. If $25,000
were expended annually on repairing ma
cadam and gravel streets for the next
three years, he says the avenues of Port
land would be unexcelled by those of
any other city.
"More than half the macadamized and
graveled streets should be redressed,"
said Mr. Chase, yesterday. "Between 25
aria SO miles of the macadamized streets
were built many years ago, and not a
single dollar has been spent on thorn
since. All the macadamized streets west
of Fifth and south of 'Gllsan. are worn
down from three to six Inches. The foun
dations of these streets are hard and
in good condition and need only a dress
of gravel to bring them up to grade.
Nearly all the streets in that district are
for light travel, so that repairs to them
would endure many years.
"The avenues connecting with the main
county Yoads should be thoroughly im
proved with stone blocks, or bricks, or
some other good pavement. The streets
between theso main arteries of travel
might be treated with gravel or maca
dam. On Intermediate residence streets
the middle part, say IS feet wide, might
be Improved with a good pavement, and
the rest with macadam. This system
would give many beautiful driveways and
would be economical and durable. Only
about 16 or 18 feet. In the center of a
residence street, is used by drivers. The
sides-might be given to trees and grass
on some avenues.
"The main streets that were paved,
might be Front, several leading to the
St HelenB road, "Washington, Jefferson
and others leading to county roads in
South Portland. The same plan might
bo pursued on the East Side. It could
be followed out for comparatively little
money and the expense could be easily
borne, because It would be widely dis
tributed. "Macadam makes the greatest driveway
in the world. Tho city streets could
be repaired in macadam for $10 to $20 for
each 50 feet front. "When built with
steam machinery and well sprinkled in
Summer, it lasts a long time. The cost
of sprinkling is more than offset by the
longer life of the street.
"Tho city is repairing more streets
than for many yeara If this policy could
bo continued for two or three years, tho
streets would bo put into fine condition.
But when as much redressing as three
or four inches is needed, it Is better
for adjoining property-owners to stand
the expense. After repairs aro made,
the city should keep them up.
"If the few paved streets were kept
in good condition. Portland would appear
to much greater advantage. These streets
give visitors impressions of our other
thoroughfares. There are only three or
four paved streets that aro in great need
of repair.
"The climate here is very wearing on
streets. There is either too much rain
or too little. Bain works its solvent pow
er seven or eight months in the year,
and in other months the sun absorbs
needed moisture from the streets."

John E. McBride. who laid the foundation of a fortune while con
ducting a news stand on "Wall street, and who was well known to
the money kings of the days of Jay Gould and Jim Flsk, was in
Portland last week, the guest o f Ralph Stuart, of the Stuart Company.
Mr. McBride grew up on the streets of New York, and by natural
shrewdness and industry managed to get enough money together to es
tablish a news-etand von "Wall s treet. His patrons from the Stock Ex
change gave him occasional tips on good things, and by judicious use
of them he gradually accumulated a fortune. He is now the owner of
the American Hotel and other valuable property In New York. He was
on his way home when he passed through Portland, having been on a
tour of inspection of a group 'of mines he has acquired in the Hum
bug District, Siskiyou Counts, California. Over 700 feet of the mines
have been prospected, and all o f them show free gold, the rock running
about $22 to the ton.'
pass east of "Wlllsburg, through which
there Is an easy grade to Lents, at Mount
Scott. Along tho river, negotiations for
more land are in progress. The latest
acquisitions are thvse of the Strowbridge
and the "Woodward tracts. Negotiations
are in progress for the Ryan land. It is
stated that the right of way has been
secured through City View-Park. There
is a hitch In getting through a portion of
"Wlllsburg. A property-owner wants $10,000
because the route runs between his house
and barn. J. W. Nickum, a well-known
resident of Portland, who lives within a
short distance of the route through Wllls
burg, said yesterday that eome difficulty
was being experienced in getting through
cast of the woolen mill plant, but he
thought the railroad would get through,
as this route seemed the best. Mr. Nickum
said that several routes had been sur
veyed eastward In the vicinity of "Wills
burg and Mllwaukle. One route passed
through near the East Side Southern Pa
cific car shops, and another from Mllwau
kle. These routes are in the direction of
Mount Scott, and harmonize with the
lines the crew of surveyors are running
from Lents through Damascus toward the
proposed power plant on the Clackamas
River. The object Is to tap the great tim
ber belt, of which there are thousands of
acres untouched by an ax. J. M. Nickum
sized up the situation when he said yes
terday morning to an Oregonian reporter:
"It Is my Judgment that we aro going to
have an enterprise of great magnitude,
which will benefit this portion of the city
more than the 1905 fair, although we have
made provision for paying the rental of
City View Park at the rate of $2500 per
annum for as long as the fair directors
want to use It. If they select Itas a slte.
The money Is all subscribed for that pur
pose. But this railroad, the proposed saw
mill and extensive carshops and terminal
facilities for the now railroad, and for
the Oregon City and Mount Scott brancnes
are a big thing for us, and I am interested
in the outcome. I understand that the
sawmill to be erected on the ground se
cured north of Inmnn, Poulscn & Co.,
which the railroad company now controls
to Hawthorne avenue, will have a capacity
of 1.000,000 feet per day. It is my Judg
ment that the O. R. & N. Co. Is Interested
in this proposed sawmill, for the reason
that it will cut railway tics, of which tho
company ships away many thousands
every year. There has been a combination
to raise the price of ties among tho saw
mills. Now, off toward the eastward, -on
the Clackamas, there is a vast body of
untouched timber, and the O. R & N.
owns much of It. This proposed railroad
will haul out the logs to this big mill,
where they will be cut up into railway
ties. Almost all the river front has been
secured southward from Inman, Poulsen
& Co.'s. sawmill, and there can be no op
position sawmill started. This big saw
mill, with the men employed In cutting
timber and shipping it over the proposed
railway to the eastward, together with
the proposed carshops and terminal
grounds, will employ a large number of
men. On the whole It will be one of the
largest enterprises started in Portland for
a long time. Of course, railroad managers
are pretty close-mouthed over the pro
jects, and we have to do a good deal of
guessing as to their real intentions."
It was stated yesterday that preliminary
work on the Rosa Wallace tract, on which
fire brick and Babcock tubular boilers
have been deposited, for some portion of
the plant, will begin within the next 10
East T-n-enty-slxth May Be Extended
to Hawthorne Avenue'.
The City Council will consider tho mat-
-ter of opening and making a. full-width
street of East Twenty-sixth street from
the north line of the PowpII road to the
south line of Hawthorne avenue. The re
port of the viewers assessing benefits and
damages for the laying out of this street
has been filed. East Twenty-sixth fitreet
is opened already as a county road be
tween the Powell and Section roads, and
one block north of the Section road. The
difficulty comes in getting it opened to
Hawthorne avenue.
It is very Important to get It opened as
proposed, owing to tho condition of the
other Btrects extending through Stephens"
addition. If it were open it would result
in throwing much traffic from the Powell
and Section roads over to Hawthorne ave
nue, which Is a direct street leading to
the Madison-street bridge. There is a
disposition now to open more streets in
the outskirts, and thus give freer access
to the city.
It Is Belnj? Ballt on Modern Lines
Cost "Will Be About $3300.
"Work on the handoome new schoolhouse
for the Wlllsburg district Is progressing
satisfactorily, and there will be no delay
in completing it in time for the opening
of school in the Fall. Two rooms of a
four-room building are being built, pro
vided with modern conveniences. Heating
will be by hot air on the Indirect plan, the
same as is used and found so acceptable
in the Central and Thompson buildings of
tho city district. A full basement has
been built, which was not contemplated
when the plans were drawn, but It was
decided that It was better to have a large
basement than half a one, as first pro
vided for.
The cost of the schoolhouse will be
about $3500 when It is finished and fur
nished. The building stands on elevated
ground above the Portland woolen mill
plant, and commands a fine view from
all directions. There is not a more suit
able location for a schoolhouse In the
county. The district owns about three
acres of sloping ground, and the building
stands on the brow of the hill overlooking
Sellwood. Drainage Is perfect. Many of
the fir trees are still on the ground. The
old building has been moved back and
faces the road on the north. It will be
leased for a nominal figure by the "Wllls
burg Literary Society as a club hall for
public entertainments. The society will

troubles left when I left oft coffee and be
gan using Postum.
"The most severe test I know of was
when my husband was down with gastric
typhoid fever. His stomach would retain
nothing; we tried milk and various other
drinks. Everything we put into his stom
ach would come upMn less than three min
utes. After the third day of this kind of
work, I concluded to give him some Pos
tum Coffee. He drank it and relished It,
and retained it, ana for four weeks he
lived on Postum and nothing else to speak
of. You can depend upon it that Postum
gained some good friends, for husband
woyild have diJd if It 'had not -been for the
nourishment afforded by Postum Coffee."

' The funeral services over the remains
of the late ex-Governor Sylvester Pen
never were held yesterday afternoon, and
were attended by an unusually large gath
ering of friends and acquaintances of the
esteemed pioneer who has passed away.
The remains lay at the family residence
during the forenoon and men from every
walk and station of life called to look
for the last time upon the features of
the man who had played no small part
In the hl3tory of the commonwealth. Llt
tlo knots of men stood about the street
corners adjacent to the Pennoyer resi
dence, and In tones of respect and deep
regret discussed the life and death of the
man whom they regarded as a trustwor
thy and efficient public servant.-
At 1:45 P. M. the funeral cortege ar
rived, and the body was conveyed to
St. Stephen's Episcopal Chapel, Thirteenth
and Clay streets, where a throng of cit
izens had gathered. The chapel was filled
to overflowing, and many who were un
able to obtain standing-room within, re
mained 'outside until the services were
over. The St Stephen's choir, vested in
robes of black, preceded the funeral par
ty, which was led by Rev. T. N. Wilson,
the rector. As the casket was borne up
the aisle, the choir rendered an appro
priate anthem, and the rector began the
Impressive funeral service of the Episco
pal Church, concluding with a scrip
ture reading from I. .Cor. xv. 20, after
which tho choir sang "Lead, Kindly
Light," After a short prayer service,
the choir sang "Nearer, My God, to Thee,"
which was followed by the recessional.
Mrs.' Pennoyer, her son-in-law and
daughter Mr. and Mrs. G. F. Russell
and a few relatives and Intimate friends
followed tho casket, which was borne by
George E. Chamberlain, W. A. Munley,
C. H. Page. Alfred Holman, F. V.
Holman and T. Scott Brooke. The
honorary pall bearers were Gover
nor T. T. Geer, ex-Governor Z. F.
Moody, Judgo George H. Williams, Col
onel John McCraken. W. K. Smith. A. T.
Smith, George T. Myers and Phil Met
schan. After tho church services-, the remains
were taken to Lone Fir Cemetery and
burled in the family lot. Hundreds of
telegrams and messages of sympathy were
received from all parts of the country
by the stricken family, and the many
floral tributes spoke eloquently of the
deep regret felt by the friends and asso
ciates of the distinguished citizen.
