PLEA FOR BONDS IDE
ROAD ISSUE TO HAKE 200,000 ACRES
Dr. G. H. Douglas Telia Clnb at Mult
momab. flOOO a Tear a Mile TO
Milea of Road Can Be Saved.
That the adoption, of the 1, 250,000
road bond issue by Multnomah County
would permit the cultivation of 200,000
acres of now undeveloped land, and
that $1000 annual expense for the up
keep of each of the 70 miles of road
way could be saved to the county by
building hard-surface roads, was as
serted by Dr. G. H. Douglas, of West
Portland, at a recent meeting of .the
Multnomah Commercial Club, at Mult
nomah, Or. After the address th club
unanimously Indorsed the bond issue.
'Our present macadam roads cost
JlOoO a mile for their annual upkeep."
declared Dr. Douglas. "For the 70
miles of road, $70,000 would b saved
every year If th roads were hard
surfaced. They are guaranteed for ten
years, so $700,090 would be saved to the
county in ten years. During this time
the roads would always be in, first
class condition. I understand that
there is on hard-surfaced street in
Portland that has gone 1 years with
out repairs. If this is true, we can
add $280,000 more, raising the total
saving to $1,000,000.
"These roads will not only increase
th value of property, but will throw
open to farmers 200,000 acres of un
developed land. Near Seattle thousands
upon thousands ot dollars have been
made through roads which made it pos.
sible to haul produce to market with
out its being half spoiled in transporta
tion. 'Nearly all the money spent on good
roads remains in the community and
provides employment for thousands of
men. Good roads will bring people from
all over the world to see th scenic
beauties of Oregon.
'It is safe to say that th tax valua
tion of Multnomah County will double
In the ten years the bonds will run.
If hard surface is cheaper, why not
"Gift" of Dead Cat Embroil
Court Orders Bath Offender to Keep
Peace, bnt Final Greeting Augur
Til for Future Peace Hatnces Hun-inn.'
FIRST it was an old shoe, then some
tin cans, then a piece of rubber
hose, and to cap the climax of Indigni
ties there was tho dead cat. Theso
had been thrown into th backyard ef
Matthen Macenich, he declared, by a
neighbor, Frank Bookshnos.
Tho cat was too much, so Macenich
took an ax and proceeded to chop down
the steps in front of his neighbor's
home. This proceeding did not meet
with tho unqualified approval of Book
shnos, who came out of his house with
a long lath with which he whammed
Macenich over the head. The force of
the blow broke tho lath in two and
Macenich beat a retreat.
Bookshnes was in. Municipal Court
yesterday to answer to the charge of
assault and battery, preferred by his
neighbor. Sons of the contestants in
terpreted the voluble Russian with
which the occurrence was explained.
Th court's order was that tho men
stop throwing things In each other's
yards, for Macenich was also said to be
an offender in this respect, and to Ig
nore each other in the future. A fine
of $10 was imposed upon BookEhnes
and remitted by the court pending good
A3 he left the courtroom. Bookshnes
hissed at his accuser, in sibilant Rus
sian, "If we were only In Russia. I'd
fix you. you dog." Which was taken
to augur ill for future peace.
