no objection to Its installation,
there will be danger that fire

At least three for-hlre stands

Report In Prepared.
City Commissioner Barbur has
formulated a report, recommending
that Chief of Police Jenkins be
granted a permit to establish the
platform, and that it be so placed
as to allow vehicular traffic to
pass while cars are loading and
The first platform of this kind
was established on . the northwest
corner of Broadway and Washing
ton, and it is declared that traffic
congestion has been relieved to a
great extent as a result. This
safety zone was made, through the
erection of two poles to which a
chain was attached.
The second safety zone will be
lightly different as it will be a
woodfii platform. It is the plan of
Captain Lewis, in charge of ithe
traffic bureau, who originated the
idea in Portland, to establish con-
rete platforms if the temporary
platforms prove a success.
Traffic Held Speeded Up.
"I believe that the 'safety plat
forms' will result la speedier moving
of traffic," said Commissioner Bige

bureau has informed me that should
a wooden platform be installed on
the southeast corner of Broadway
and Washington there would be. dan
ger that the fire trucks could not
wing through the space alloted for
the vehicular traffic If automobiles
are parked on the street.
"For that reason, if the permit for
the platform is granted, I will prob
ably recommend that no parking of
automobiles be permitted on the
east side of Broadway while the
platform is1 in use."
