STREET COMMITTEE BBSY
IT oowsmwsts-SBvmRAi IMPORTAXT
Flftk-Steeot franchise, Extension o
KeUr Street ad Proposed.
: - s ' :
The Ttfttt-gtreet franchise to the Port
land Traction Company, apprapri&tloas
from th general fund for street lm
provMaont and repair, and xtenskra of
Kelly street through the old oemetery
ground, known as Terwllligrer's Park,
were three subjects that gave the meet
ing yesterday afternoon of the council
committee on streets constderaWe import
ance The franchise was referred to the
city attorney- for a legal opinion as to
the validity of forfeiting four blocks of
the old Thlrd-Wreet line franchise, and of
crossing the Second-street bridge, over
which a franchise was recently granted
for the Corbett-street extension. The
committee assured the Multnomah Driv
ing Association that it would advocate
the dedication of a street through the
old cemetery ground for the extension of
Kelly street. An appropriate of $109
from the general fund was made for
building steps up the hlU from Wood
street, SSM was conditionally appropri
ated for a Belgian block pavement on a
portion of Gtaand avenue, from Clay street
eoutn fo opposite the sawmills: an appro
priation for further improvement of one
block of Nicolal street was laid over until
further Inquiries and a like sum for Im
provement of Macadam street was asked
for. but deferred until further Inquiries
could be made.
F. I. Fuller, superintendent and mana
ger of the Portland Traction Company,
spoke at length in favor of granting his
corporation the Fifth-street franchise intb
South Portland. He spoke of the work
done by the company, service afforded Its
territory, desirability of having two in
dependent companies tapping South Port
land, bona nde purpose to commence work
if the franchise asked was granted, and
introduced Judge H H. Norfhu for the
legal presentation of the forfeiture ques
tion. Judge Northup held that there could be
no question of the right of the council
to forfeit all of the old Third-street line
franchise not being used, which, he said,
applied patently to the blocks In ques
tion. This he thought reasonable under
any oomtnon sense interpretation of the
law, and stated further that the right of
forfeiture for non-use was plainly cen
eyed In the franchise. Speaking per
sonally for himself as a property-bolder,
he thought the proposed road of great
value to the citizen. William 34. Greg
ory. J. A. Strowbridge, D. H. Handee and
other nponerty-owners along the line
warmly advocated granting the franchise.
A petition purporting to represent a ma
jority of the property on the Fifth-street
part of the proposed line was presented,
asking that the franchise be given the
company, and Mr. Fuller said only a few
hours had teen used m getting those rep
resented. But one person, owning as
much as 60 feet facing on Fifth street,
had objected. This petition was circulat
ed tno day previous, when it was report
ed that some one was endeavoring to get
up a remonstrance. Mr. Fuller seemed to
think the franchise -nould be strongly
M C. Banneld made a statement of the
terrible condition of the south end of
Grand avenue. All the hauling from In
man. Paulsen & Co.'s mills and therea
bout bad no other outlet Property-owners
had Improved with sand and gravel a
year or two ago, -which now was worse
than ever. Most of the adjacent lots
were unoccupied or of low value, and for
the full cost of laying Belgian block.
which was the only pavement fit for such
heavy traffic to be assessed against them
was mors than they would stand, if the
street was never Improved Councilman
Cameron warmly argued that thte was a
case where the public need aemanaea a
Btrest, and If the property-owners were
too poor to pay for It, city Interests im
pelled some action. Chairman Martin in
sisted that public funds should not be
used, as It would open the door to nu
merous other cases of the same kind,
which awaited action on this, but he was
accused of taking a different view when
first-ward property was affected. He re
plied that maintenance of the elevated
roadways and bridges on the Bast Side
already drew heavily enough on the gen
eral fund. Councilman Jameson thought
this a case where city interests required
action. It was finally decided to recom
mend an appropriation of JS09 from the
general fund. If the property-owners and
mill wontd lay down a Belgian block
pavement. With this inducement, it was
hoped that the street would be given a
After more or less argument, the sug
gestion of City Attorney Long regarding
notices before commencing Improvements
on petition of property-owners was adopt
ed, and will be recommended to the coun
cil' for a general resolution on the suto-

"Wild Flowers Again.
PORTLAND, Feb. 15. (To the Editor.)
Since Tuesday's issue I have been looking
vainly for some one to at least hazard a
guess concerning the "lilies" observed by
some person last Sunday. So far as I
can learn the earliest liliaceous plant of
this region is the erythronlum. Jt Is
found in moist places, grows six to ten
Inches in height, flowers straw color, with
deeper center, nodding, petals and sepals
recurved like our common wild lily, L.
Columblanurm. The plant has two rad
ical leaves of unequal size, curiously spot
ted, giving the flowers the name "adder
tongue in some localities. If persons
who are not acquainted with the -names
of flowers would describe those they ob
serve, others might Identify them. The
name "Illy" Is applied rather indiscrimi
nately to many other plants. The pretty
