The plan ; to hold an arbor day haa
been suggested by cltlxens who are en
thualastio In their effort a to beautify
the city for the exposition. The purpose
Is to-make it an occasion In which not
only the public school children, but all
the people, of Multnomah county may
participate. ' -'" T" '' "J-''" ""
Thla Is said to b th best plan to rid
the vacant lots and unimproved aide
walks of weeds, grass and brush, to
trim unkspt hedges and shade trees. CoJ
operation of all th eitlsena in tbe move
ment for a clean city ia desired, and it
ia argued that all arbor day ia tho me
dium by which It may be secured.
State Superintendent of Schools J. H,
Ackerman will name a day ia April to be
observed by tho public school children of
tbe state In planting trees and flowera
and In beautifying tne publio -school
grounds.-- It la desired to make thia a
day when business men will lay aside
their duties, .when studenta will leave
their studies, when peopie in all walks of
life will lend their assistance In a cam
paign against everything that tends to
mar tb appoaranc of tb city.
Such events are frequently held In Cal
ifornia, and in many counties arbor'day
I on of th greatest occasions of the
year. - People gather on th streets and
in county roads with plows, wagons, boea
and ahovela, - :- .
: Bemovo tke mnbateb. -
Tree and plants are planted, vacant
yards and sidewalks are cleared of weeda
and brush, hedges are trimmed, and ail
aorta of work la don to lend sweetness
and light to tb community.
A mas meeting of th cltlxens may be
called In tb near - future to consider
the proposition to hold some such event
in thl county. While It 1 said it Is
not necessary to plant mora trees In
Portland, It la suggested that on thla day
every cltlsen shbuld devote hia time to
improving the appearance- oi nis prem

Tbe movement for a elean city "Will
be supported by tb municipal govern
ment, which will enforce th ordinances
now in effect and. if necessary -pass
others, compelling property owners to
keep their property free from weeda and
sraaa. An ordinance waa passed in 1Q3
providing.' for uie-r removal - ox graaau
weeds and Drusn zrom aiaewaias si jeasi
twice a year. Tb duty of enforcing thla
ordinance falls upon thaojty engineer,
