Samuel Hill in bis lecture In the audi
torium of the East Portland Branch Li
brary Monday night made a plea for
convict labor In the construction of
good roads. His lecture was on the
subject of "Good Roads." and he showed
many views of first-class roads which
he built In Washington with convict
labor. He rapped Governor Hay. of
Washington, who he said had held up
road construction by withdrawing the
convicts from road construction and
shutting them up in the penitentiary
at WulU Walla. He expressed the
hope that with the retirement of Gov
ernor Hay road construction will be
resumed. Some of the most Interesting
views shom-n were those of the Colum
bia gorge. He showed pictures of
Mount Hood and Mount Blanc in
France in contrast and declared that
nowhere In the world Is there finer
scenery than In Oregon and Washing
ton. Mr. Hill closed his lecture by
giving a picture of Governor West,
whose road policy he commended.

Pacific Company Is know as the Bvaver

Side line Just south of Wlllsburg and
passes through the center of Milwau
kee. It I promised Milwaukle that
more stations will be established In
side the city Imlts and cars will run
oftener than the present steam cars,
but how often cars will be operated
Is not yet announced. The movement
to electrify the Mllwaukle-Beaverton

track. If this cut-off Is electrified It
will give Mllwaukle another electric
line into Portland.
