Best metlnc to rt favorably on the
proponed plan of Mayor stushltaht to

Willamette Klver. for the purpo of
developing a mur.lrlu.il Industrial can

OA't. He lrsires the Wnanoil to -adopt
the KMtunry resolution predentin the
proposed purchase to the vote of tha
people at the special election In Janu

Rusbllchl addressed to the City Coun
rll. which will be rend at the meeting
"With the ot'Jert of ifcurlnr to tha
people of this city a desirable location
for a mid-rtvrr park, as well as suffi
cient around space for a municipal In
dustrial renter. 1 have obtained a six
months' option on the river property
known as Koss Island. That the peo
ple may have the opportunity of de
rldlnc for themselves m-hether this
property should ba purchased for the
rlty before the tract Is subdivided, or
before the price becomes prohibitive.
I am of the opinion that the question
should ba submitted to a popular vote.

"Ross Island, and the two smaller
adjacent li-lun.ls f the croup, which
are In.-lurted In the proposed purchase,
romprlse an area of something like
acres. The property Is on tha Wil
lamette, convenient to tha city, and
la one of the few remaining desirable
tr.xts Inside the city's limits- which
could be utilised for park purposes and
f .r the many projects and minor pub
lic biiitdinss of a larre and arrowing;

by ttie oe-n. r la 13'mmwo. which Is not
considered unreasonable by those who
ire in position to know of correct land
r:illes In l'ortlali'l.
"It l my opinion that this land
ihim.il be acquired Immediately. The
Ur-f'l l-larpl Mould make a most de
MraS nm'-river public park, with pos
sibilities of beli.K In time developed
Into one of the most beautiful free
puMic resorts la the country. With
t;ie fi:!tnif of the lowlands, which can
- accomplished In lime, much wasta
and cou .l be reclaimed and the value
f the entlie tract considerably en
hunce.l. A mlJ river park and recre
ation place for the people of this city
womd be an Invaluable asset, and
would a-.ve i'ortland a unique repute
t.on whlrh would result In attracting
visitors by the beauty and charm of
vur public breathing places.
Ballctls aitea PfevUf.
The two smaller Island would maka
Ideal locations for the grouping of tha
rarloua municipal bulldtBcs that Bra
tow scattered about tha city. On of
tneee Islands oould be set aslda as m
site for a larga Incinerating plant,
which will be necessary befor many
years, Tha second smaller island 1
conveniently located for a municipal
prison and corttagloua hospital. Ar
rangements could ba mad for oonftnlnf
U cltr prisoners to the Islands and
thair labor wisely directed toward tha
reclaiming and cultivation of wasta
land. Tha labor required for operat
ing tha Incinerator would ba furnished
by tha prisoners, and la this manner
tha city would ba repaid for tha ex
pense Incurred In caring for It wards.
"Thara la ample room for storage
Tarda for tha water department, city
tarns, pound, etc.; lowland for tha
dumping of aahe from tha Incinerator,
and a perpetual receiving place for
rtreet-weptna and other waata which
heretofore baa been used In tha fill
ing of eleuKb and gulches that ara
fasf eisapptarin; from the rlty. When
aU tha sloughs throughout tha alty
hare been filled tha problem of dis
posing of this wasta will ba easily
olved should the city acquire thla land.
A part of the tract set aside for the
pasturing of ever-worked horses used
by tha fir and street-cleaning depart
ment would arpeal to the human
feelings of our rituer. and would ul
timately mean the saving of a consid
erable Item In the care of animals that
would otherwise ba considered useless.
It 1 possible that sufficient hay for
the animal could ba successfully
grows In a part of tha land set asid
for this purpose.
-Keallilng that It will take time and
money to carry out thla undertaking,
and with the feeling that a rapidly
growing city uch a our hould look
ahead and plan for the future a well
as for the present. I hav given thl
ubject much careful thought. If the
cltv Is to grow and expand In the fu
ture as It haa during the past few
yrarm. it will be only a matter of time
until all desirable tracts of land suit
able for such purposes shall have
passed beyond the reach of the people.
1 am therefore of the opinion that tha
city should at this time take step to
acquire this most desirably located
property, and 1 respectiully ask your
honorable bod to pass the necessary
resolution submitting the question to
ti e people so that It can b voted upon
at the same time the :outh Portland
brirfr project Is placed on the ballot."

Upright Pianos Going ror $100,

The Sale of the Perry Graves Bankrupt Stock by Eilers Music House Comes, We Find,
Most Opportune for Many Families Who Do Not Wish at the Present Tune to
Invest Much Money, People Who Need a Piano, and Yet Do Not Wish to Rent One.
Many people nowaday have obligation to meet la
many directions. Ia many homes, the Insistent demand
of the wife who once played, or the arrowing children
who should be taking leaeon are simply Ignored from
day to day because of the relatively high prices 9f good
pianos and the difficulty of meeting the large payment.

We have plenty of piano of our own to aell. These
bankrupt-stock Instruments are simply In the way. We
want to get rid of them at once. We got them cheap
