The committee voted unanimously
yesterday to require the double tracks
to be extended to Main afreet Inateaa
of only to Morrison street, as desired
by the company. This was a compro
mise of the demands made by the Sev
enth-Street Property Owners" Associa
tion, that the double traeka be extend

had Drevlously compromised the propo

over the street, but thia was not satis

"I cannot say whether the company
will accept the franchise or not," said
Mr. Fuller. "At best It la doubtful, all
depending, of course, on the way the

also resented the letter. Thl commit

to let the company get hold ot a

curing It on Its own terms take what

The Rose City Park residents want a

get It under this franchise. But how
about the people of other districts?
Perhaps the company would not iook

delay has been to protect the people
aa a whole and not to iavor mo ttsi

The committee voted unanimously to

BLOOMS IN ELK PLAN
Purple and White Sweet Peas
to Be Convention Setting.
EARLY PLANTING ADVISED
Lodgemen Wonld Hare Every Resi
dence District Outlined In Offi
cial Hoes of Ordei? Prizes
Since the suggestion that Portland
residents plant purple and white sweet
peas as decorations for the Elks' Na
tional convention in Jnly, first was
made six weeks ago, thousands of
lawns and- gardens have been planted
with seeds that will produce flowers
of these colors, the official hues of
Seed houses in Portland are arrang
ing special packets of seeds that will
produce sweet peas of pure white and
deep purple. They advise that the
seeds be planted before the end of
February, that they may bloom in time
for the Elks' reunion, which will be
held during the week beginning July 8.
Many lawns on Portland Heights al
ready have been fringed with seeds
that will produce purple and white
borders. Irvington residents have
been preparing for the Elks' gathering
In a similar manner. In many other
parts of the city residents have been
active In seeding their flower beds, that
they will form a part of this novel re
ception to the 50,000 members of the
organization who will be Portland's
guests for a full week next Summer.
Commission Approves Plasu
The commission In charge of the
convention has taken official recogni
tion of the plan. At a meeting early
In January $20 was appropriated to payJ
for a prize for the best display of pur
ple and white sweet peas made at the
annual exhibit of the Oregon Sweet Pea
Society, which will be held within the
week that the Elks are here. Captain
George H. Pope, president of thii so
ciety, is the originator of the Idea. He
and other members of his organization
have been active in the movement ever
since it was inaugurated. They hope
to make purple and white prominent in
every Portland lawn.
The Elks' commission also has under
consideration the suggestion to offer
a prize for the best display of purple
and white ' sweet peas grown In the
residence districts. Prizes also will be
offered for the homes best . decorated
with purple and white bunting, Ameri
can flags and Elk emblems.
Decorating Committee Busy.
The decorating committee, of which
John H. Burgard Is chairman, already
has completed plans for beautifying
the entire line of march on both the
east side and west side of the river
with one harmonious scheme of color.
The headquarters In the Elk building
now are flooded with samples of Amer
ican flags, purple and white pennants
and Elk emblems submitted by manu
facturers In various parts of the coun
try. Harvey C McAllister, secretary,
has telegraphed an order for a large
quantity of American flags to be used
In the street decorations. Many miles
of purple and white bunting and thou
sands of pennants bearing silk heads
painted on a white background and
with purple border will be purchased
at once. As some of these will have
to be made. to order, it is necessary to
buy them early.
Honor Court Outlined.
Plans for an elaborate court of honor
to be built of wood and white plaster
are being considered. The court will
form a square bounded by Seventh,
Morrison. Fourth and Stark streets.
It Is probable that growing plants
of purple and white sweet peas will be
Introduced Into the decorating scheme.
