SEATTLE, Wash, July 13. The fea
ture of the day lor the Mystic Shrlners
drawn to Seattle by the annual meeting-
of the imperial council was the
procession which escorted the imperial
officers from headuarters through the
principal streets of the city and to the
council hall. Six miles of soldierly
men, fclad in Zouave and Hussar gar
ments of silk and velvet, of all colors
and gorgeously ornamented with gold
and silver lace, made a moving picture
that delighted the eyes of a multitude
who cheered the marchers. Lulu tem

foot patrols under band, and ilola tem

camels harnessed to a cart, attracted
At the Moore Theater the Imperial

Three great balls in honor of the
Shriners also were given. They were
in the State Armory, the Hippodrome
and at the Port Commission pier. All
these entertainments seemed not to
lessen the throng' of Shriners on the
streets, however, and the downtown
district wore a holiday aspect. The
temples which possess bands appear
indisposed to have them unemployed,
and the Zouaves are always ready for
special parades and concerts.

An all-day search yesterday revealed
two or three or half a dozen weary and

were having the time of their gay
young lives at Seattle.
The proverbial fine-tooth comb would

that at least 30 per cent of them would
have been found making arrangements

to Counties in Work and Reports)
Pacific Route to Be in
Fairly Good Condition.
ROSEBL'RG, Or.. July 13. (Special.)
Escorted along the Pacific Highway
by County Judges and Commissioners
of the counties through which they
parsed. S. Benson. J. H. Albert and
Leslie Butler, members of the advisory
board of the State Highway Commis
sion, accompanied by E. L Cantine. as
sistant state highway engineer, are
meeting with a demand for state aid
for roads through Western Oregon.
Mr. Benson at a meeting of Roseburg
business men this afternoon struck the
keynote to the situation by voicing
the need for a state bond issue t
$10,000,000 to build main trunk lines
throughout Oregon, the interest and
principal of the bonds to be paid from
tne current tax revenues of the state.
It is considered impossible. In view
of the low tax levy for road purposes,
to meet the demands of the various
sections of the state, and the only way
is predicted in the bond issue.
Boad-lssse Plan Iadoraed.
At a largely attended meeting at the
Roseburg Commercial Club today, the
proposition was indorsed after being
presented by Mr. Benson and the other
members of the party.
As outlined by Mr. Benson, the plan
contemplates the Issue of bonds to the
amount of $10,000,000. extending over
a period of 25 years, the proceeds from
the sale to be used to build permanent
roads that are primarily state high
ways. Mr. Benson favored the appoint
ment of a State Highway Commission
of five members, three from Western
Oregon and two from Eastern Oregon,
to serve without pay.
This commission. It is suggested,
shall be entirely In charge of perma
nent state road work and shall employ
an engineer of wide experience for
the technical work.
Illschway Condition Keporte Good.
"The Pacific Highway, generally
speaking. Is In good condition for Sum
mer travel." declared Mr. Benson, "but
there are numerous dangerous railway
crossings that should be eliminated, as
well as numerous heavy grades that
need adjusting, that mean that the
road must be relocated for distances
before it is attempted to spend money
to make it permanent, and there are
places that demand resurfacing before
the route can be put; in condition for

Impossible task for one county. State
