JSULL TO HELP
"Rose-Planting Day" Will Be
DEDICATE "OREGON ROSE'
Washington's Birthday to Be Hon
ored on More Imposing" Seal
Than Has Kver Been Attempt
ed in Portland Heretofore.
In order to honor 'W "ashlngton's
birthday on a more imposing scale than
bas ever been attempted In Portland be
fore, as many of the leading business,
civic and commercial' organizations as
can be brought together will be asked
by the Rose Festival to lend a helping;
hand. Dr. Emmet Drake, secretary of
the Festival, has called a meeting of
the "rose-planting day" committee for
8 o'clock: next Tuesday evening, at Fes
tival headquarters, in the Swetland
building, where the prellimnaries al
ready worked upon will be discussed
nd passed on.
This committee, consisting of 25 of
the most prominent public-spirited or
ganizations of the city, has the entire
rirogramme of the day In charge, $.na In
ts personnel there is reprisented the
Festival, the Portland Rose Society, the
Oregon Historical Society, the City
Board of Education, the united East
Bide Push Clubs, the East Side Busi
ness Men's Club, the Peninsula Rose
Association, the City Council, the Park
Board and a number of other prominent
municipal factors. In addition to this.
the Alaska-Tukon-Pacino Exposition
management will send a delegation to
Portland to assist In the ceremonies.
Want School Children.
One of the most Important features
of the "rose-planting day" ceremonial,
which will probably be decided upon at
the meeting, is the part that the Board
of Education will permit the public
school children to play. Last year much
of the success of the occasion was due
to the fact that the School Directors
allowed the children to turn out In full
force, but whether this will be done
this year or not is a question.
Instead of attempting to plant whole
blocks of City Park property to roses on
this occasion, as happened last year,
only about 100 of the "queen of flowers"
will be set out this year. Bishop
Charles Scadding. of the Episcopal dlo
tese of Oregon, will bless them wnh im
While the committee will not an
nounce details, two of the foremost Na
tional celebrities on the Pacific Coast,
both of whom are Interested in affairs
of this character, have been invited to
be present and play an Important part
in the celebration, but until their ac
ceptance of the Invitation extended to
them has been received their names
will not be given put.
AVill Dedicate Oregon Hose.
One of the features In connection
with Washington's birthday celebration
will be the formal dedication of "the
Rose of Oregon." and it is planned that
one of the two celebrities referred to
will conduct this feature of the pro
gramme. Dedicatory ceremonies will
probably be held at some one of the
many city parks during the afternoon,
with additional observance in some au
ditorium in the evening, but this part
of the function will have to be passed
on by the general committee.
That the officials and management of
the A.-Y.-P. Exposition will Join hands
with the Rose Festival in helping to
make the celebration next June a huge
success has been assured. President
Ralph W. Hoyt and General Manager
O. L. Hutchin, of the Festival, have Just
returned from Seattle, where plana
tntmn ,. -, fnr mnro unified Work in
matters where the common interest of
both expositions is at "stake, and they
report that Seattle- is ready and will
ing to do what it can to promote the
floral fete here in connection with ex
ploiting the Seattle Fair.
, Aside from an official representation
here on Washington's birthday, the A--T.-P.
management has promised to take
some part in the functions of the Fes
tival itself, probably by entering a
spectacular float, as was done last
June. In the matter of handling tour
ist business, both organizations have
agreed to work harmoniously, and they
will bear Jointly the expense of bring
ing the Liberty Bell to the Festival and
the Seattle Fair.
SALT LAKE ALSO WANTS BELL
City Council Forwards Strong Heso-
lution to Philadelphia.
Salt Lake is tho latest municipality to
add its Influence to assist Portland in se
curing the Liberty Bell for exhibition
during the Rose Festival, in June. An
exceptionally strong resolution was passed
by the City Council of that place at its
meeting held January 25. A copy of the
resolution was received by City Auditor
Barbur yesterday and will be referred to
the Portland city Council next Wednes
day. Th resolution follows:
To the Honorable Mayor and Members
of the City Council. Philadelphia, Pa.
At a meeting of the City Council, "neld
January 2S. 1D09. the following resolution
by Councilman ematrom was presented
Whereas, a "Rose Festival" will be held
In the city of Portland. In the state of
Oregon, during the month of June of this
year, and the committee In charge of said
"Rose Festival" is endeavoring to Induce
the authorities of Philadelphia to consent
to the use of the "Liberty Bell" upon the
occasion of the festival; and.
Whereas, It is In every way fitting that
this relic of the strenuous days of our fa
thers in their strugple for the liberties
which we enjoy should be seen In our
city; more especially Is it desirable In view
of the circumstances that our city shall
be the scene of the National Grand Army
of the Republic encampment during this
Whereas, In order that this relic of an
eventful period shall visit our city, let
every patriotic body and every organiza
tion In our midst resolve to - co-operate
with the people of the city of Portland in
their laudable endeavor to have the bell
brought out to the Northwest, and also
take such means as may bo necessary to
have our representatives In Congress at
Washington, D. C, use their best efforts
to the end that the grand old chlmer may
for a brief period stay within our Boun
Whereas, there Is possibly no object re
maining to us of that historic struggle so
well known to the - people of the United
States, nor so much loved by them as
tne om "jerty eu, now, tnererore.
Be It Resolved. That from the viewpoint
of historlo Interest. National pride and of
love or tne traamons or our country, we,
the City Council of Salt Lake City, Utah,
do most earnestly request the city authori
ties of Philadelphia to grant the request
of the people of the city of the North
west for tho use of the bell during their
festival, and that It may be possible to
permit of a stopover in cur city In order
that our people may have the distinguished
honor of viewing this great, historic, grand
old "Liberty Bell." Respectfully,

Council Authorizes Offer of $1200
for Power Company's Grant After
Which Madison-Street Span
May Be Started.
A new Madison-street bridge seems to
be assured, from the recommendation of
the street committee of the City Council,
passed at its meeting yesterday afternoon,
end a resolution adopted by numerous
Push Clubs at a general meeting held
Thursday night at the rooms of the
Brooklyn Republican and Improvement
Club, Councilman Rushlight presiding,
and Cltly Auditor Barbur acting as secre
tary. Immediate action by the Executive
Board, the legally authorized body, is
urged by both the street committee and
Councilman Rushlight, at the meeting
yesterday, moved that the Council author
ize the Executive Board to tender to the
Portland Railway, Light & Power Com
pany J1200 for its right and title to a fran
chise over the present Madison-street
structure, this being the sum recommend
ed by the Board some time ago. When
this offer is made, it is argued, the way
will be clear to proceed with the new
span, whether the -company accepts the
amount or not. In the bill authorizing the
bridge, the Executive Board is named as
the branch of the city government having
full authority to construct.
The resolution adopted by the clubs la
Whereas, the City of Portland has sold
the bonds to build a new bridge at Haw
thorne avenue and Madison street, and the
money will soon be available; and.
Whereas, the present bridge is now closed
to traffic on account of being found dan
gerous and unsafe: and.
Whereas, It is important that tbe con
struction of the new bridge be commenced
at once; now. therefore.
Be It resolved, that tbe representatives
assembled of the Mount Scott. Richmond.
Waverly. Kenllworth. Hawthorne, , Wood
stock. Midway. Sellwood and Brooklyn
clubs do pray that the Executive Board of
the City of Portland be requested to take
the necessary step's to at once commence
the construction of the new bridge.
Be It further resolved. That a copy of this
resolution be forwarded to the County
Court. Executive Board and Council of the
City of Portland.
The Madison-street bridge Is not to 'be
opened to traffic This decision has been
reached y the County Commissioners.
They say expert engineers figure that the
bridge cannot be repaired, so as to be
safe, for less than J2000. They think that
the estimate of Engineer A. H. Richmond, ,
of the Portland Railway, Light & Power
Company, of between 1700 end J1000, is too
AFTER MONTGOMERY TRACT
Korth East Side Improvement Asso
ciation Takes Action.
That the Montgomery tract ought to
be secured for park purposes was the
unanimous sentiment of the North East
Side Improvement Association expressed
last night. Councilman Menefee brought
the matter up, told what action had been
taken, and asked for the indorsement Of
the movement. He said the tract con
tained -26 acres in the heart of the city.
It was the sentiment of the club that
In view of the fact that, Frank J. Par
ker, booster for the Mount Tabor park,
had constructed a trail to the fourth
floor of the City Hall and kept it red
hot, Albina should also Build a similar
trail. The park committee was instruct
ed to convey to the Park Board the
wishes of the club and the people.
The association indorsed the project of
erecting an interstate bridge across the
Columbia River. J. H. Nolta submitted
a letter from Senator Beach announcing
that the bill for the bridge had passed
both houses, and also that the Washing
ton Legislature had passed a similar bill,
authorizing the appointment of confer
ence committees. The matter was re
ferred to the bridge committee to urge
that a conference be held at once be
tween the two committees of the Oregon
and Washington Legislature.
The matter of erecting a bridge across
Sullivan's Gulch at East Twelfth street
was referred to the bridge committee vO
expedite. M. G. Munly, president of the
association, reviewed the past year,
pointing out the satisfactory work of the
club for general improvements. Francis
Clarno also addressed the club.
