DOUBLE TRACKS ARE LAID
Streetcar Company to Continue- East
In the development of the new sys
tem of hard-surface Improvements in
Ivanhoe and Woodstock the Portland
Railway, Light & Power Company has
relald its line with heavy steel double
tracks on East Forty-first street be
tween Woodstock avenue and Mann
Station preparatory to the bard-surface
soon to be laid there. The street rail
way company will continue its double
tracks northward to Gladstone avenue
on East. Forty-first and East Forty
second streets, thus making the Wood
stock line a double track line.
At the Intersection of East Forty-first
and Holgate street East Forty-second
merges Into East Forty-first street,
and the Woodstock Improvement Club
has taken up the matter of the city
taking over the irregularly shape lot at
this intersection and connecting the
two streets through it and erecting a
fountain on the remainder of the lot.

MM PROTESTS MADE
COMMISSIONERS TO TAKE VP
DOCK QCESTIOX THURSDAY.
Residents of East Side to Present
Figures Snowing Cost of Recrea
tion Piers ot Excessive.
Mayor Albee and the four City Com
missioners are being besieged by citi
zens who appear in person or use the
mails to protest against the announce
ment of the Dock Commission that pro
viding for recreation on the roofs of
the proposed public docks would be
inadvisable because of the expense.
Particularly strong are the expressions
of protest from the East Side, where
the Business Men's Club started the de
mand for space on the docks for play.
The definite statement made by the
dock board at its conference with the
City Commission Monday, that in order
to chang the plans and construct the
two docks of fireproof material that
would permit of dances, band concerts
and other forms of amusement on the
plera would cost $130,000 additional. Is
met with derision by scores of oltiiens,
and the East Side Club is preparing to
present to the conference an avalanche
of figures to disprove the assertion
when the Dock Commissioners and the
City Commissioners meet in the City
Hall tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
President Lepper. .of the East Side
Club, is marshalling his forces to set-
as many of the East Side taxpayers at
tomorrow's meeting aa possible. Thus
far the City Commissioners have re
mained neutral, except to say that the
suggestion of dances and band con
certs on top of the docks is attractive
to them. Commissioners Brewster,
Blgelow, Dleck and Daly agree with
Mayor Albee on this.
Stella W. Durham, of Portland, as
sistant secretary of the Playgrounds
and Recreation Association of America,
who is an ardent champion of the
recreation plan, has collected data rela
tive to the use in other cities of docks
for pleasure purposes.
In Baltimore, she says, work was
begun in July on a commercial and
recreation pier at the foot of Broad
way. It is to be two stories high, built
of stone, concrete and reinforced con
crete, with a' dancing pavilion on the
upper story. It will cost-about 1400.
000 and an equal amount has been paid
tor the site. It is 500 feet long and
150 feet, wide, and is supported on 11
concrete piles. The pier will be com
pleted in 250 working days. The cost
cited does not Include dredging, nor
unforeseen incidentals. Robert C. Ull
rich is the architect and Harbor Engi
neer Lackey is the authority in charge.
In New York recreation piers have
been built in Manhattan at a cost of
from $135,000 to 3225.000. There are
Ave on the Hudson River and five on
the East River.
In Philadelphia there are Ave recrea
tion piers in use. two being about 650
by 80 feet, with the usual lower deck
for commercial uses, while the other
three are small and are utilized only
for seats. The costs have been from
1131.000 to (162,000.
In Minneapolis the pier at Tflf Sar-
riet will be enlarged to Beat nearly
5000 persons, while several thousand
more will listen to concerts from canoes
or the shore. A float with sounding
board will be built for the band. .
CHURCH UNION COMES UP
Branches of Evangelica) Organiza
tlons to Consider Merger Anew.
Rev. C. C Poling, D. D., of the First
United Evangelical Church, has ascer
tained that the general assemblies of
the Evangelical Association and United
Evangelical Churches -will meet - in
Cleveland, O.. Sepember 2, to adopt a
plan for the organic union of the two
branches of the Evangelical families.
The two Oregon conferences of these
branches are already. in close federa
tion and are only waiting the official
sanction of the general assemblies to
Dr. Poltng ' said that he has high
hones that the sub-commissioners will
act finally at this meeting and adopt
articles of organic union that will bring
together these two branches of the
Evangelical family. Dr. Poling is a
commissioner from the United Evange
lical Church and has done as much, if
not more, than any other man to merge
the two branches into one family.
