MAYOR'S REASON'S FOR SIGJfTJJO
There Li an Imperative demand for
the upper deck of the proposed steel
bridge, to be built by tho O. R. &
N. Company for public use, and the
situation Is so grave that it cannot
be Ignored; there must be Increased
facilities for crossing the "Willamette
River .as soon as possible.
Vacation of Oregon and Adams
streets will enable the company to
proceed with its bridge at once, and
later the city can compel. If neces
sary, favorable action by the rail
road company for concessions needed
for the Broadway bridge and other
Believes the railroad company offi
cials will deal fairly with th.e city
and that all features of the bridge
subjects will be settled amicably and
satisfactory to the city.
The steel bridge should be built at
once to relieve congestion and afford
relief to the entire North Kast Side
section; In the meantime, the Broad
way plans should be rushed.
Mayor Simon yesterday signed the or
dinance passed by the City Council last
"Wednesday, ordering, the vacation of 100
feet each on Oregon and Adams strest,
so the O. K. & X. Company may build
Its proposed steel bridge, the upper deck
of which is to be for public use.
While it had been reported in certain
circles that Mayor Simon probably would
veto this ordinance and thereby delay
the building of the proposed steel bridge"
by the railroad company until certain
concessions had been granted by the O.
E. & N. officials, he decided, after care
ful consideration, to sign it. In doing so,
he made a statement, in which he sets
forth his reasons for so doing, chief of
which is that there is an Imperative de
mand for increased facilities for crossing
the Willamette River and that this span
must be constructed at the earliest possi
More Bridges Badly Needed.
"I take the stand that the. city must
have more facilities for crossing' the
river," said Mayor Simon. "In signing
this ordinance, I do so knowing that
there Is a sentiment in certain quarters
that the O. R. & N. Company should
first make concessions to the city in con
nection with the 'Broadway bridge
project and other subjects, but It seems
to me that the situation with regard to
the present Steel bridge is so acute that
It cannot be ignored any longer; the new
one must be built and that as speedily
"While the city vacates 100 feet on
each of Adams and Oregon streets, I re
gard it as far more valuable to the in
terests of the people of this city than to
the railroad company, as the people will
have the use of the upper deck of that
structure. Were It not for the' fact that
the Port of Portland insisted upon the
public deck, the company would not have
built that portion; it would then have
been a bridge for railroad purposes only
such as the company originally Intend
ed and desired to build. Had it been
left that way, the company could have
built its bridge for its own use without
asking for any vacation of streets.
"Since the company is obliged to build
the upper deck for public use, and since
there is such a strong need for more
bridges, I have decided that it is for the
best interests of the public that I sign
this ordinance and thereby give the com
pany an opportunity to proceed with its
bridge, and I hope it will be complete
and opened to public use in the shortest
possible time. While I do not say that
the old Steel bridge is absolutely unsafe.
I do Bay it should be abandoned Just as
soon as it is possible to do so.
"Regarding the contention of some of
the people that the city should be grant
ed Broadway bridge concessions before
ordering the vacation of Oregon and
Adams streets, I will say that I, too, be
lieve that would have been the most sat
isfactory means of solving the problem.
However, I do not feel that, as Mayor,
having the veto power, I should over
ride the Council, if possible, and thereby
hold up the new bridge project indefin
itely. I also consider that the city re
tains absolute power to force, if neces
sary, whatever concessions it will need
for constructing the proposed Broadway
bridge, as the company must soon ask
the city for much more valuable grants
than the vacation of 100 feet on Oregon
and Adams streets.
Company V1U Do Right Thing.
"I feel also that the company officials
have a disposition to deal fairly with the
city in this matter, and I have no doubt
In my own mind that General Manager
O Brien will adjust everything In a man.
ner perfectly satisfactory to the people
of Portland; but, as I said, we can force
this, if he does not do so willingly, as
the company must soon ask the Council
lor more concessions. For these reasons,
after most careful consideration, I have
oigned the ordinance."
The ordinance passed the City Council
at the last session by a vote of nine to
six. and it was said, by a oommittee of
jtAst wae Business men mat tney would
apply the referendum to the measure. If
the Mayor signed It. Tne company d
clares the referendum cannot be applied
to this case.
Briefly stated, the transportation situa
tion referred to by Mayor Simon in his
statement, is serious. The present Steel
bridge Is worn out; all traffic has been
removed from it to other bridges by the
streetcar company as far as is possible.
Heavy railroad engines cannot be ope
rated over it. and it Is therefore urgent
that the new span be built at once.
PRELATE IS EULOGIZED
Methodist Ministers Express Sorrow
Over Death of Bishop Spellmeyer
The regular weekly meeting of the
Methodist ministers yesterday was de
voted principally to a eulogy of Bishop
Henry Spellmeyer. who was found
dead In bed Saturday morning in Tren
ton. New Jersey.
Dr. Clarence True Wilson, Dr. Young,
Dr. H. C. Jennings and others who had
known Bishop Spellmeyer personally,
spoke of his useful life and his
delity. Dr. Jennings characterized tho
bishop as a man of sorrows, as he lost
all but one of his children within a
week by scarlet fever. The surviving
child married and went Insane.
A resolution of sympathy and ex
pression of loss was drafted by the
association on Bishop SpelImeyerB
W. A. Lovett, secretary of the Lay
men's Missionary. Movement, presented
the appeal of ministers throughout the
state who will find it difficult to at
tend the convention here on account
of traveling expenses and the cost en
tailed by a visit here. The Portland
ministers were asked to provide enter
tainment for the visiting clergymen
who would attend the assembly.

Potatoes'' on its dining cars. They are
so styled on the daily menu card and the
name is a flitting one, for each potato
weighs not less than two pounds. These
family-size potatoes, have been attracting
the comment of travelers e.11 the wsV from
St. Paul to Portland and many are the
inquiries received by the railroad com
pany as to where they are grown, how one
can obtain seed potatoes of that variety
and how similar potatoes can be pro
duced. Generally the" reply given is that
if one wants to grow such potatoes he
must come to the Pacific Coast.
One of the more recent inquiries, came
from the manager of Madame Schumann
Heink, the latter having recently tasted
and admired the "Great Big Potatoes"
when on her .Western tour. The letter
was received by A. D. Charlton, of Port
land, assistant general passeflajer agent,
and contained a request for a quantity
of the potatoes for experimentation pur
poses on Madame Schumann-Helnk's farm
at Little Falls, N. J. A barrel of the
big fellows has been packed and sent to
the New Jersey farm, but Mr. Charlton
declined to guarantee that they would
reproduce In New Jersey in such size and
flavor as in the Yakima Valley, where
the shipment was secured.
TRAVEL TO BE HEAVY
RAILROADS EXPECT THOUSANDS
Pacific Coast as Attraction - for
Tourists Increases in Popularity
Year by Year.
That the volume of tourist travel to
the Pacific Coast this year will equal
that attracted by the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific'
exhibition last year, was the
forecast given yesterday by C. E.
McPherson, general passenger agent of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, who is
in Portland on a tour of inspection.
"The Pacific Coast as an attraction
for tourists is only 1n Its Infancy,"
said Mr. McPherson, "and there is rea
son to believe that the Western travel
will increase year by year for a long
time to come. '
"All the Northwest Coast will te
visited by the great bulk of the year's
tourist travel. Persons who come out
West over the northern lines will
swing down the coast and go home
by a more southern route, and those
who come out by a southern route will
return by a northern road. Last year
the exposition attracted many tourists
and all these people went home and
advertised the West so that as many

however, their old friends become scat

TRAIL TAKEN AGAIN
Ezra Meeker at 80 to Recross
Continent Behind Oxen.
OLD PATH TO BE MARKED
Pioneer of 1853 to Make Third Trip
Over Plains, Starting Tomorrow
From The Dalles Congress
May Grant Fund.
Ezra Meeker, pioneer of 1353 and mem
ber of an Immigrant train which came to
the Northwest over the old Oregon trail,
is ready at SO years of age to make his
third ox-team Journey overland to the
banks , of the Kaw. He will begin the
Dave, the only ox having the distinc
tion of traveling from one ocean to the
other drawing a "prairie schooner," and
his team-mate, Andy, are shod and ready
at the starting point. The Dalles. Mr.
Meeker visited Portland yesterday.
When Ezra Meeker made the 2200-mile
Journey the first time he was seeking a
home in the wild Oregon country. In
1906 the pioneer had a duplicate of his
old wagon made and returned over the
long road as a labor of love. Mr. Meeker
wanted the exact course of the Oregon
trail to be staked and marked, that its
traditions might not be lost to the
descendants of the lion-hearted early set-
At that time he succeeded in establish
ing 22 monuments at prominent points.
Many of them were erected at his own
expense, but in some instances an ap
peal to local pride of clues along the
route secured prompt assistance. Baker
City erected a granite shaft costing $200;
isoise, laano, caused a splendid pillar to
be set up on the old camping ground.
and in other places leas' expensive mark'
ers were located.
Roosevelt Welcomes Him.
Arriving at the Kaw River in Kansas,
Mr. Meeker concluded to continue his
Journey to Washington and the Atlantic
Coast. He drove his outfit into the White
House grounds November 29, 1907, and
was received by President Roosevelt, who
ordered a photograph taken of the wagon,
Mr. Meeker and himself.
President Roosevelt became interested
in the mission to mark the Oregon trail
and recommended that an appropriation
of $50,000 be made by Congress. The bill
was amended to provide that no part of
the appropriation should be expended
until the Secretary of War should be
satisfied that the work could be com
pleted. The doubt having been raised In
the minds of members of Congress as to
$60,000 being sufficient for the purpose,
the bill was allowed to die on the
"Senator Piles and Representative Hum
phrey have introduced duplicate bills in
the present Congress," said Mr. Meeker.
"and my work will be to go back
over the trail and designate the points
at which monuments should be erected,
estimating , the cost and submitting a re
port to the Secretary of War. If the bill
shall pass before I complete my labor,
the report will serve to make the money
available Immediately, and if it shall not
have passed I will ask the privilege of ap
pearing before the proper Congressional
committees in Its support.
Pipe to Mark Trail.
"I plan to reverse the trip made first
,by 125 wagons and about 1000 people under
the guidance of ex-Senator J. W. Nesmlth,
Peter Burnett, who became the first Gov
ernor of California, and Jesse Applegate.
At prominent camping places, river cross
ings, road intersections and places of
historical interest I will drive a galva
nized iron pipe, three feet long, extending
above the ground about one foot, and
capped with a screw top on which will ap
pear the lettering 'Old Oregon Trail, 1843.
If nothing is done by Congress those
markings will last a century.
"The route will be from The Dalles up
the left bank of the Columbia to Wallula,
thence to Walla Walla and Pendleton.
There we cross the Blue Mountains and
enter La Grande. The next point will be
Baker City. Oregon will be left at a
point opposite Old Fort Boise, and we
will then reach (Boise City. Crossing the
Snake River at Glenns Ferry, the trail
runs on past American Falls, OH Fort
Hall and Pocatello to 8oda Springs. From
there we make the South Pass of the
Rocky Mountains. Emerging from the
pass we are in Wyoming. Striking the
Sweetwater, the head of the Platte
River, we go down along the south side
to the vicinity of Grand Island, thence
southeasterly across the Big "and Little
Blue rivers to the Kaw River, striking
that river at Topeka, Kan. From there
we go to the intersection with the Santa
Pe trail, at Independence, about 40 miles
from Kansas City.
Present Roads Deviate.
'The. oxen and wagon will travel the
main-traveled roads of oonrss, and they
are not always located on the line of
the old trail. That makes it necessary
for Tne to take along a pair of light mules,
which will be used in locating the exact
line of the trail. I shall not always be
with the wagon, as it will be necessary
to do a great deal of work in looking up
ramping grounds, trail work and the like
but I shall be. close to It.
"My plans contemplate that historical
societies of the six states through which
the trail passes shall detail a man to
accompany the expedition to verify the
work done in each state, and to Join in
the report to Washington. That is the
purpose of my visit to Portland. Wash
ington has detailed C. B. Bagley to check
up the work. It has been completed in
"We -can only make about 15 miles a
day with the ox team, and it will, re
quire fully seven months to make the
When in the Bast in 1906 Mr. Meeker
succeeded in arousing a great amount of
interest Jn his mission. In New York
City his driver was first arrested for
bringing cattle upon the public streets.
The editor of the New York Tribune
went down to the City Hall and suc
ceeded in having an ordinance passed
allowing the pioneer outfit the privileges
of the city for 30 days. The team was
driven from the (Battery to the upper end
of Broadway and was given an ovation.
At Philadelphia the Town Council allowed
camp to be made in City Hall square.
Mr. Meeker Introduced the hop in
dustry In Washington and was for 44
years engaged in farming. Recently he
has been engaged in exporting hops to
the London market, and now resides Jn
Seattle. He was the founder of the town
of Puyallup, now a city of 6000, located on
a corner of the old Meeker homestead.
The wagon - in which the trip will be
made Is a counterpart of the one in which
Mr. Meeker crossed the continent in 1853,
the wagon box being boat shaped on the
bottom, to enable it to float across the
rivers. The trip will entail an expendi
ture of about $5000, and will be financed
by Mr. Meeker.

of life in the underworld of Paris, pre

Parisian "Apache" has no prototype

ing perhaps the East Side Bowery boy
in New York. In "Petite Gosse" two
scenes are shown. The first depicts
the exterior of one of the many resorts
peculiar to the Montmarte Quarter and
the meeting of the1 Apache rivals. The
next picture is of the interior of the
rendezvous where the Apache dance

Another big hit. is "The Mayor and
the Manicure," as presented by Edwin
Holt and his company. This delightful
little comedy is by George Ade, which
in Itself is the trademark of sterling.
In a manner replete with interest the
development of the story tells of a
plot in which a manicure lady attempts
to blackmail the father of a college
student. Edwin Holt is seen as the
father and Mattle Choate is the mani
curist. There is life and action through

made a hit at that time.

Great Music Requires
A Great Piano
F someone in your household is a fine
pianist, that in itself is the best argu-
mp.nt whv vou should not be content
with any piano less than the Weber.
Even in homes where no one plays
especially well, it will pay in the end to
buy the Weber. On occasions when
skilled pianists visit the household, the
presence of a Weber piano is a potent
invitation to play.
The greater the pianist's ability, the
more cultured the ear of the hearer, the
higher will be the appreciation of the
Weber's rich and colorful tones.
The Weber is an instrument apart from
all other pianos. It embodies a distinct
individuality, bringing to the surface the
best there is in composer and pianist alike.
We are sole agents in this section for the world
renowned Weber Piano. We ask the oppor
tunity of demonstrating to yon what is

tion of the road and the money has
been appropriated, according to J.
P. O'Brien, vice-president and gen
"The present route of the O. R.
& N. follows the Umatilla River
from Kcho to the Umatilla and
then turns at right angles down
the south bank of the Columbia
River. Coyote is a station 16 miles
west of the Umatilla, and the cut
off runs in a straight line "across
lots' to Echo. The cutoff will be
23 miles long and will reduce the
mileage of the main line 12 miles
in addition to eliminating many
degrees of curvature. Part of the
right of way will cross lands re
served by the Government for
reclamation purposes, and it will
be. necessary to have the maps ap
proved by the Interior Department.
Work will begin just as soon as
this approval is given."
The analysis of the soil shows it
to be superior for fruit than that
of our now famous districts. We
are now prepared to take contracts
in five and ten-acre tracts up.
When you know what this land is
you will be surprised at the extremely-
low price and the easy
terms at which it is sold. Don't
fail to get at the bottom of this
opportunity, the PREMIER irri
gated land of the world.
