"The Daylight Store" In the Heart of the New Retail Shopping District
Two Speed Districts Set, Ve
hide Red Light Favored
OFFICIAL ROLE IMPORTANT
Most Radical Proviso Mates TTnlaw
ful Parking Conveyances Between
Boars of A. M. and 6:80 P.
M. longer Than SO- Minutes.
Establishment of two speed districts,
with 15 and 25 miles the respective
maximum rates per hour; the
formation of a "congested" district,
within which It shall be unlawful to
park vehicles for more than 30 minutes
during business hours, together with
the introduction of the- red light on all
vehicles operated in Portland between
darkness and dawn, are the salient
features of the proposed traffic ordl
nance as expressed to the Council com
mittee at a mass meeting In the City
The congested district in which the
anti-parking clause is to be invoked
is the most radical measure or the traf
fic ordinance which will be presented
to the City Council for passage within
two weeks. This district, within which
it will be unlawful to park vehicles be
tween the hours of J A. M. and 6:30
P. M. for a longer period than 30
minutes, or during the process of load
Ing or unloading, is identical with that
of the inner fire limits. It is Dounaea
on the east by First and Second streets,
on the north by Burnside street, on the
west by Tenth street, ana on mi soutn
by Yamhill and Taylor streets.
Maximum Rate Fifteen Miles.
The speed rates, as decided upon at
the well-attended special meeting and
to be recommended to the Council for
incorporation into the new traffic laws,
are also radical. Within the district
bounded by Second street on the east.
Oak and Stark on the north, Tenth on
the west, and Morrison on the south,
the maximum rate of speed for all
vehicles will be IS miles per hour. In
addition, this rate will prevail on the
Kord-street, Thurman-street and Burn-
side-street bridges: and on the East
Side, the bridge thoroughfares of Haw
tliorne avenue. Morrison street. Burn
side street and Adams street and Hol
laday avenue. All of these streets
are within the 15-mile limit to Grand
avenue. Grand avenue is Included from
Hawthorne to Holladay.
Without the restricted districts
named the speed will be 25 miles per
hour, in accordance with the state law.
The only amending clause is that com
pelling auto trucks of a capacity of
two tons and over to limit speed to 12
miles an hour.
Red Lights Popular.
The forcing of all vehicles to bear
red lights at night was the pet meas
ure of Councilman Watkins, and un
doubtedly will become a part of the
ordinance. This applies to all vehicles,
including hearses and baby carriages,
according to the Councilman.
After much discussion on the speed
regulations, with a three-district
scheme tentatively agreed upon, to
yield to the two to be presented as the
committee's recommendation to the
Council, it developed that the consensus
of opinion favored the elimination of
all speed rates, placing the matter in
the hands of the traffic officers. These
officers of necessity must wield a large
influence where such liberal maximum
rates are tolerated, but City Attorney
Crant pointed out that the state law
fixing the rate at 25 miles would prove
a barrier to the elimination of speed
rates by the city authorities.
The "congested" district representa
tives. Including E. E. Coovert, W. F.
Woodward, John B. Yeon, Martin
Winch and Robert H. Strong, attended
the mass meeting in the Council cham
bers prepared to make a fight on an
anti-street-speaking clause. This clause
was tabled by the committee, which ex
plained afterwards that, while it is not
dodging the issue in this respect and
will make a fight in the near future,
it feels that the ordinance purely regu
lating the traffic could not pass with
too cumbersome appendages.
Peaaut Veadors May Go.
As the matter now stands the adop
tion of the congested district clause,
with all of its modifications, spells the
downfall of the peanut vendors, the
relegation of the taxicab and rent-serv-l.'e
automobiles to the region outside of
the district, and undoubtedly means the
erection of large garage structures in
the near future. Chairman Burgard, of
the Council committee. Intimated that
he knew of several parties ready to
erect gigantic structures for garage
purposes Immediately upon the passage
of the ordinance.
The sidewalk elevator came in for
much criticism. It was decided at first
that these apparatus could only be op
erated between the hours of 6:30 P.
M. and 9 A. M.. the regulation figures
decided upon in all instances. How
ever, it developed that much of the un
loading must be Into the cellar by way
of the sidewalk elevator, and a modi
fication will permit its use while ve
hicles are gathering or depositing
loads. Protecting screens will be re
quired. The anti-parking scheme for the
congested district met with streunous
opposition from Julius L. Meier, of
the Meier & Frank store, while his
words had much to do with the ex
tending of the limit from I to 9 o'clock
for backing of vehicles to the curbs
for delivery purposes.
"Force the automobile owner to keep
his car many blocks away and you
not only inconvenience him, but you
will give the streets of Portland the
appearance of a deserted village," de
clared Mr. Meier. "The idea of pic
turing Portland's retail district as a
human graveyard does not appeal to
me. The Easterner Judges a city by
a casual inspection of traffic and how
can the city be properly organized with
a half-dead front presented to the visitor?-'
Mr. Woodward Replies.
"The visitor will be greeted with a
live traffic condition and not a series
of streets used for storage purposes,"
was the retort of W. F. Woodward, of
Woodard. Clarke & Co. "The congested
district, with Its anti-parking rules,
does not bar automobiles and vehicles
from the streets, it simply forces them
to keep in motion."
City Attorney Grant and Councilman
Watkins spoke of frequent complaints
made by small store-owners that their
business was closed In from street
traffic by automobile owners who left
their cars standing at the curbing all
day. The practice of renting the pub
lic street to owners of rent service au
tomobiles was condemned by Mr.
One important recommendation
which will tend to relieve the conges
tion on Morrison, Alder and Washing
ton streets is that prohibiting trucks
and drays from using these - streets
within the congested district unless
loading or unloading merchandise.
Another one which is calculated to
protect the children of the city Is that
EAST The Larger Area, or "Congested" District, la That Now Comprising; the
laner Fire District, While the Smaller Is That In Which the Speed of
All Vehicle. Will Be Limited to Flfteea Mllea an Hoar It Is Pro
poned to Prohibit the Parking et Automobiles Within the "Congest
preventing them from . jumping on
wagons, hanging onto automobiles and
using other vehicles for bicycle tows.
E. Henry Wemme presented a letter
asking for special legislation in this
Traffic to Move by Signal.
Traffic officers are to be stationed
at the following street intersections,
where all vehicles must stop and re
ceive the signals before proceeding:
Front and Morrison, Third and Mor
rison, Fifth and MorriBon, Second and
Washington, Third and Washington,
Fifth and Washington, Second and
Burnside, Twenty-fourth and Vaughn,
Union and East Burnside, Grand and
East Morrison, East Water and East
Morrison, Third and Burnside, Grand
and Hawthorne, Holladay and Union,
Second and Alder.
Those exempt from the provisions of
the speed clauses of the ordinance are
the police department, fire department,
physicians on emergency calls and the
emergency wagon of the Portland
Railway, Light & Power Company.
Streetcars are forced to Btop at the
approach of fire or police apparatus.
It develops that the franchise under
which the Portland Hallway, Light &
Power Company is operating street
cars calls for a 12-mile rate of speed.
The new ordinance will amend that
franchise and permit of faster service
without a violation of the law.
Fines Fixed 920 to 200.
The penalty for non-compliance with
the proposed ordinance is fixed at a
fine of from $20 to 1200 or imprison
ment in the city Jail at from five to
The traffic mass meeting opened at
10 o'clock vesterdav and did not end
until after 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
With Councilmen Burgard, Watkins
and Monks and City Attorney Grant
were representatives from every or
ganization interested In traffic regu

ATTENDANCE NOW 25,677
Increase Yesterday Over Friday Is
734, largest of Season to Date.
The school enrollment in the 57
schools of Portland yesterday showed
an Increment of 731 over Friday, an In
crease larger than that for any day ot
the present term and a ngure wnicn
will no doubt hold the record for daily
increase during the remaining months
of the term. The total attendance in
the Portland schools is now 2o,S77.
The daily marks reached for the nve
days of last week were: Monday (open
ing day), 23.766; Tuesday, 24,474:
Wednesday, 24,725; Thursday, 24,917;
Friday. 24.943. The daily increments
were 708, 261,. 192 and 26, respectively,
as compared with the Increase of 734
for yesterday, the second Monaay oi
the term. This day has usually re
turned a larger increase than any
other day of the entire term, because
of the fact that many returning from
their Summer work or vacation a day
or two late decide to await the follow
ing Monday before beginning active
school work. '
The additional enrollment yesterday
unquestionably would have been even
larger were it not for the circumstance
that school opened this year a week
later than ordinarily and not so many
were detained by harvests and hop
picking as in former years.
The schools recording the largest In
creases yesterday were: Albina Home
stead. 50: Arleta, 44; Fernwood. 36;
Lincoln High School, 34; Couch, 28, and
Clinton Kelly, 26. The Washington
and Jefferson high schools gained only
13 and C entrants, now aggregating
1213 and 986, respectively.

PROSPERITY GIVES CHANCE
Number of Unemployed- In City Re
duced to Minimum and Violent
Crimes Are Reported Far
To meet the crying demand of con
tractors and other employers for men
to do their work, a means of simplify
ing the " probation problem in the
Municipal Court is a project being con
sidered by Judge Tazwell and Deputy
City Attorney Cahalin. Reports reach
ing those officers to the effect that
there are not enougn men to do tne
work now in progress, and at com
paratively high wages, are the basis of
While contractors are searching high
and low for hands, idle men are being
passed through the Municipal Court in
scores, and the city rockplle, where
they are sent in the more aggravated
cases, is overcrowded. Arrangements
are now being made to open a subsidi
ary camp, but as the Winter season
draws on even the increased accom
modations are likely to be overtaxed.
Contractors to Be Reaponslble.
If this supply and demand could be
brought together much good would be
done on both sides, the authorities say.
In granting probationary sentences,
the court holds a high power, being at
all times in a position to revoke thj
leniency and put the sentence into ef
fect. It might,' therefore allow men
under arrest to go free, upon their
promise to report to certain works, the
address and the name of the contractor
being supplied them. If they failed to
keep faith with the court, the suspen
sion of sentence could be annulled and
they could be made to do within the
Linnton stockade labor harder than
that which they had scorned when of
fered pay for it.
This plan. If worked out, would be
an extension of the recent appointment
of Bailiff Padrick as probation officer
of the court, with the duty of looking
after the conduct of the prisoners who
have received suspended sentences.
Every employer of labor who solicited
help from the court would be made, in
effect, a probation officer most likely
to report if the men committed to his
care broke faith. -
Criminal Element Small.
Prosperous conditions throughout the
country in all lines have reduced to a
minimum the number of idle men n
the city. The resorts along Burnside
street, where the unemployed congre
gate, are less frequented at present
than in several years, and employment
agents are unable to fill the demands
made upon them. The fact is revealed
also in the small amount of violent
crime coming to the notice ' of thi
police in recent months. Not in years
have there been so few burglaries and
highway robberies as in the past half
year. The men who are keeping the
Municipal Court busy are of that irre
ducible minimum of derelicts who will
work only under constant ward and
