Grand Central Park Name. After a
long discussion the. North Alblna Push
Club Tuesday night decided that tha new
park purchased by the Park Board In
the W. K. Smith tract, in that portion
of the city, should be called the- Grand
Central Park. A vote was taken as to
what name should be selected, and a
great variety was suggested. Among
these was one that the park be called
Vaughrr-ark. In honor of Councilman W.
Vaughn, but this name only received
one vote, that of C. L. Daggett The
name Grand Central Park seemed to
strike the . popular chord and It was
voted as the choice of the club, although
some considered It Inappropriate and not
local In Its application. At this meet
8 k Nta, C. L. Daggett, Charles
fye, D. and S. L. Osborn were appointed
to solicit funds to aid the Peninsula Rose
Festival Association in carrying out its
plans at the coming Festival.
Heavt Street Work. Heavy work is
In progress on East Stark street, which is
to be Improved between Bast Twentieth
and East Forty-flrst. At East Twentieth
and for some distance east there will be
a cut of about 20 feet. This part fronts
on Lone Fir Cemetery. A uniform grade
will be the result, which will harmonize
with the remainder of the street toward
the Willamette River. The dirt will be
used to fill up East Pine street, between
East Twentieth and Twenty-first streets,
where an Improvement is being made.
The Improvement of East Stark ls con
sidered the most Important undertaken
so far this year on the Bast Side. It is
understood that an effort will be made to
continue the Improvement on out to West
avenue, at Mount Tabor, first by making
a street out of It, thus taking It out of
the Jurisdiction of the county, and then
by starting proceedings in the:ity Coun
cil. Addition to Recbivino Home. An ad
dition to the Receiving Home of the Boys'
and Girlsf Aid Society will be built. For
.o tusi oi me improvement, J2000 was
: appropriated at the last session of the
Legislature, and subscriptions are. being
icv;civcu tor tne additional amount re
quired. Subscribers to the amount of
tSO become perpetual members and J100
nc mciiiurio. j.jie trustees neid a meet
ing Wednesday and decided to erect the
addition. The Receiving Home at East
Thirteenth and GUsan streets has been
overcrowded for some time, and Su
perintendent Gardner has had no easy
iaaa to provide lor the waifs who are
placed In his charge.
Horse's Kick Rmin T.rm
frequent use of his whip on the animal
no m anving cost Arthur J. Mumby, a
driver for the Portland Delivery Com
pany, a broken leg late yesterday after
noon, and he ls now In St. Vincent's Hos
pital with every prospect of being con
fined there for the next two months.
Mumby was driving algng Bast Salmon
street at East Water street, when the
accident occurred. He touched the horse
with the whip and the animal kicked up.
His heels struck Mumby between the
ankle and the knee, shattering both bones
badly. He was conveyed to the hospital

Mr. Thomas, on other trips north, has
come as far as Grants Pass to look at
mining properties. "That country has a
promising future so far as quartz min
ing ls concerned." he said. "I cannot
say aa much for the placer mines. In the
properties I saw the placer ground was
not a gravel formation, such as we have
in Sierra County, California, where I
have mining interests, but was more In
the nature, of quartz erosions. The gold
was too fine for profitable placer mining.
The district should develop some valuable
quartz properties, however."
Mr. Thomas has been in the city since
Monday, coming here to meet a friend

The first few days of her work at the

in wireless telegraph communications in
the Northwest, for Mrs. Tucker's pres

to purify the upper atmosphere. Rough
