The Lavender Club met on Friday at the home of Mrs. C. E. Millen. 639 East Fifty-sixth street North. It was
ene of the merriest parties and meetings imaginable. The women of the club are all more than &0 years of age.
One is 87, but afl are young in spirit and know how to enjoy a meeting; and a festivity. The club was organized
two years ago. There are two divisions. One meets in the East Side Library and the other at the Peninsula Park
clubhouse. Mrs. Cornelia Haynes is president of the latter club and Mrs. Burley of the former.
The members take box lunches and after the repast they have a business meeting. Then comes the social hour
and the wind-up is a Virginia reel. Two other branches will be formed soon. Mrs. Burley was founder of the
first club. ,

public, to be Insisted on by members
of the City Council.
The proposition will be put up to
the jitneys Tuesday afternoon to ac
cept or reject. Acceptance means the
establishment of the business on a dif
ferent basis, while rejection means dis
continuance of jitney service Wednes
day. The jitneys have said they cannot
survive regulation, and for that reason
the prospects are that they will not be
able to get over the proposition to be
put to them by the .Council.
Conncll Gives Choice.
The Council has been waiting for sev
eral months for the jitneys to make a
proposition. As .they have failed to
do this, the Council now proposes to
tell them what they can have, the un
derstanding being that they can take
It or leave it alone.
City Commissioner Baker, who was
authorized by the Council to prepare
definite regulations, expects to have his
propositions before the Council Tues
day. The proposals will incorporate
the ideas of members of the Council
expressed heretofore and other regula
tions which Mr. Baker deems advisa
ble. The Council's purpose is to frame a
franchise which will place the jitney
under regulations similar to those im
posed on the streetcar company, the Jit
ney and the streetcar being in the same
business, and therefore being entitled
to corresponding privileges.
Service Extension Probable.
Commissioner Baker has not made
public the terms of his proposed fran
chise as yet, but it is expected it will
embody the general proposition of more
extensive service, a transfer system
and a bond of some sort so that per
sons injured by jitneys can recover
damages. As the Jitney is running now,
the most of them have little or no re
sponsibility, many of the cars not be
ing their property and the drivers per
sonally having little or nothing.
In the majority of other cities where
Jitneys are operating or have operated
they aie required to furnish a bond for
the protection of passengers. The
amount of the bond ranges from $500
to $10,000 for each jitney. The average
for all cities is about ?5000. Portland
requires no such bond.
If the jitneys go out of business on
Wednesday it will be merely the add
ing of another name to the long list
f cities that have ousted them up to
this time. It is said about 25 cities
have put them out of business In the
last two years.
Vancouver and other cities of the
Northwest, has won a commission as
Major in the officers' reserve corps of
the Army. He took his examinations
here a little over a month ago, and
the notification of his success in the
exams was received here today.
Mr. Harries had three years' work
at West Point, served a year and a half
as an enlisted man in the regular
Army, and also was a Lieutenant in the
villitia of the District of Columbia.
CROWBAR ROLLS GLASS EGG

It Is easy to draw a crowd nowadays.
Five hundred people gathered on Wash
ington street last night to watch W.

started at 9:40 when the egg, pro
pelled by gentle strokes of the crow
bar, began to roll up Washington.
The people who were interested In
seeing the egg roll from one street
corner to another blocked the streets
so that traffic was momentarily sus
pended. During the 15 minutes that
the performance was under way, lines
of street cars and automobiles were
strung along Washington street wait-

(Special.) The last steel erection
work on the Interstate bridge Is now
under way. It Is the placing of the

Two Bsnds In Line.
The paraders had two brass bands
and Judge Samuel White, Democratic
state chairman, and George F. Alexan

in an auto near the head of the line.
The parade started at 8 o'clock from
Broadway to Yamhill, moving north to
Morrison, thence to Third, to Washing
ton and west to Fourteenth, where it
was supposed to disband.
Instead of disbanding, however, the
paraders marched back to The Orego
nian corner, at Sixth and Alder streets.
where they indulged In a noisy demon

The paraders included Democrats
from outside towns as well as from

in Vancouver, Wash.
Among the features of the parade
