Old Property Sold, Building of
Several Stories to Be
Erected Soon. '
Portland Women's Union Will Sell
Building on Flanders Street and
Xeeds More Funds for Erec
tion of New One.
To accommodate working girls who de
elre a home with the Portland Women's
T'nion, at 510 Flanders street, but are
denied admission because of crowded
conditions, the union has purchased a
quarter of a block at Tenth and Mont
gomery streets for tho purpose of" erect
ing a building of several stories. The
new home' will contain all modern con
veniences, with original features that
may add to the comfort of homeless
young women.
The union proposes to sell its property
on Flanders street and expects to erect
the new building without mortgage or in
eumberance. The site has been paid
for. It is believed by ardent workers in
the union that, with the sale of the prop
erty and funds now available, the new
Institution may be completed and opened
In the near future without additional
soliciting and free of debt.
At the annual meeting of the union
last Monday plans for the new building
were discussed and the women were en
thusiastic over reports of the various
officers and committees. Wtien a report
was made that last year more than 600
self-supporting girls applied for admis
sion and only a small number were ac
commodated, new impetus was given the
movement for a new and larger .build
ing. More Room Is Crying Keevt.
Concerning the necessity for a new
building. Mrs. P. J. Mann, president of
the union, said in her annual address:
More room Is the crying need of the
union today. The number of those ap
plying for rooms every month and turned
way is most distressing. "We know of
no place to send them where the price of
board is as low as charged by the union.
I see but one way before us. and that
lis for us to provide a house large enough
to meet the demands.
"The union was incorporated in 18S7,
with $1000. That seems a small sum of
money to start such an undertaking, but
the amount of energy and faith of the
women comprising the society was not
estimated in dollars and cents. Their
faith must have been large from the
results accomplished, for they succeeded
In purchasing this place (a quarter block
and large house on Fifteenth and Flan
ders streets) furnishing the house, and
years ago cleared it of all debt. Today
We own this valuable property clear.
'The time seems to have arrived when
we must make a move forward and
strive for greater usefulness, no greater
In proportion than that assumed in the
formation of the union, when the de
mand for such a borne was bo muchj less
than it is today. We all must acknowl
edge that homes for working girls have
ot kept pace with other improvements.
Home orfered to Girls.
'We have successfully demonstrated
the fact that a home can be main
tained, even in our limited quarters,
where the working woman, though
earning small wages, can have com
forts and be surrounded by refining
Influences for such a sum as she can
afford to pay thus encouraging proper
pride and maintaining self-respect.
This much we women who have been
blessed by fortune owe to our sisters
who have less.
"Other societies have erected beauti
ful and costly buildings, while we have
stood by trembling, so we have con
cluded that we. too, need a new build
ing, for we are greatly crowded and
there is no better work than ours and
none more necessary. So we have
tsken a step toward a new home, in
asmuch as we have secured a site, one
that seems to me ideal 1n every way
for our purpose, as it is within easy
walking distance of the main business
center and only one block from street
cars. It is close to Park street with its
beautiful shade trees and refreshing
green grass. It is close to church and
school and away from the noise and
bustle of the city with its cheap, al
luring amusements which undermine
the taste or desire for a nobler life.
' "The sale of our present property
will aid us greatly in building with
out mortgaging the property or going
out to canvass for funds the second
time. I am not in favor of going deep
ly in debt, but when we build we
must have modern conveniences and
he vera I stories, even if we can not
finish it all at once. Our trustees have
ever been willing to confer with us
upon all matters, and I am sure they
will still aid us in this, our noble
though hard undertaking, which can
only be accomplished by much per
sonal sacrifice by all of "us. But the
object is worthy of our best efforts
and let us put them forth and work
with a will for a new home for the
Portland Women's Union."
Girls Regard Honse as Home.
The report of Mrs. Heath, the super
intendent, dealt with the attitude of
sruests towards the union, which af
fords them such an enjoyable home at
little expense. vOne girl was quoted
a saying:
"There is no better place In all Port
land for a girl who is away from her
own home to live. Our rules are not
Irksome nor overbearing and they pro
tect us from an undesirable class of
!boarders. Only good, sensible girls
tay with us and we enjoy each other
nd the home we make for ourselves
Oiere. We do not want the freedom of
Date hours. If a girl is going to be
worth anything in her work she needs
Test and sleep."
Another boarder politely resented the
neer of a girl who said: "Oh. you live
at the home," with a dignified reply
I live at the Portland Women's Union,
H0 Flanders street."
The superintendent said each guest
takes an interest in the welfare of the
household and often asks permission
to add to its comforts and pleasures
y making small purchases for the
home. She said members who had
found homes elsewhere often returned
to visit and bring books and flowers.
Concluding, Mrs. Heath said:
"1 might go back over the past year
and give many Incidents which would
prove that ours Is not a boarding-house
of the ordinary type. But I will close
with the words of one who. with sev
eral others, was our guest for a week
last Summer. In a sincere, straight
forward way the visitor said: 'I shall
never forget the Portland Women's
Lnion as long as I live. I have en
loyed every minute of my visit here,
and wish there were more homelike
.laces Just like this, not only for -firla
"Music expresses feelings and
thoughts without words. It was below
and before speech, and is above arid
beyond all words.
" Before man found a name for any
thought or thing he had hopes and
fears and passions, and these were
rudely expressed in tones.
"Of one thing, however, I am cer
tain, and that ishat music was born
of love. Had there never been any '
human affection there never could ,
have been a strain of music.
"Possibly some mother looking in
the eyes of her babe gave the first
melody to the enraptured air.
"Language is not subtle enough,
tender enough to express all that we
feel, and when language fails, the
highest and deepest longings are ex-
pressed in music."
Good music demands a suitable medium for its
interpretation a piano such as the beautiful
A. B. Chase
Artists in all professions have' become enraptured
over the marvelous tone and quality of the A. B.
Chase Piano
