When the manufacturers met last

If they would Join the Greater Portland

thusiastic support as' well aa tender

ing their members placed on the fair
association directorate, and that a build

"This Is not a. mercenary propoaltton.'
said Mr. Thompson. "It should not be
construed as such. We. want to have
an exposition In which all will partici

to show our Interest in the farmer by

to be 'abandoned for a time at least.
This embargo on hops and lumber,
It Is said, is not serious, however, as
these commodities can be shipped in
the smaller cars; but It Is held that
the original j-ullngr. If allowed to stand,
practlcaiy would have meant that no
shipments of furniture, Automobiles or
vehicles of any size could have been
made from Pacific coast points without
a great deal of extra labor and expense.
It Is said that the cry for large
cars from the states of Michigan and
Ohio Is greater than ever because of
the increased demand for the output
of the furniture, automobile and ve
hicle factories, but the furniture fac
tories on the Pacific coast,' too, are
enjoyig a heavy business and therefore
enforcement of the ruling depriving
them of the use of these cars, built
expressly for bulky freight, would have
dealt them a serious blow.

cated. The Steel Bridge Push club has
already circulated a remonstrance
against the vacation of Larrabee street
from Holladay avenue to its intersec
tion with Oregon street.
' Owners File Petition.
A petition was filed today by practi
cally all the property owners on Lar
rabee street north to Broadway and
on Holladay avenue for two blocks on
both sides of Larrabee street, asking
thai Larrabee street be extended to the
proposed landing of the new steel bridge
on Oregon street and that an elevated
roadway or viaduct be built on the same
grade as the bridge to Holladay avenue,
"Property owners asking: for this via
duct believe it is the only redress they
can get for the moving of the steel
bridge to its new location," said F.
Clarno,. an attorney representing the
petitioners of the Steel Bridge Push
club, this morning, "and we are not
asking for anything unreasonable,
either. We are willing. If the elevated
roadway Is built, to grant-the railway
a perpetual right of way to use the
street under the roadway. But it Is
too much to, expect ' the city to give
away Larrabee street after allowing "the
railway company to move the bridge
from Holladay avenue."
The ends of Oregon and Irving
streets and Pacific avenue are now be
ing obstructed by dock buildings owned
by the railway companies.

Many Business Men Consider
The Pianola Piano
The Wisest Investment They
IflE PIANOLA Piano does not belong
in the usual category of luxuries. It is
an intensely practical article for every
day use. The proper way to consider its cost
js to view it as an investment an investment
that will pay almost fabulous dividends in en
joyment and happiness for the entire family
wife, children and particularly the man who
has never had the advantage of musical train
ing. Consider the limited avenues of recreation
open to the average busy man of affairs: Ab
sorbed in the details of the office, evening
finds him too fagged out to sit through a for
mal concerf. The PIANOLA Piano enables
him to have informal concerts amid the com
forts of his own home concerts that begin ,
and end just when he likes. Aud the pro- -
gamme contains only the pieces that please
Any member of the family can speedily, ,
learn to play the PIANOLA Piano artistically.
But oftenest the man himself insists upon do
ing the playing. An active man Jikes to be
active even in his pleasures. The PIANOLA
Piano is a constant challenge to an intelligent
mind, for there is a sense of achievement in a ;
beautiTjptomposition adequately performed..
So sensitive, so responsive is this marvelous
instrument, that the pleasure grows keener
with its use.
Many of the most important financiers, corporation heads and captains of industry today de
pend upon the PIANOLA Piano for mental refreshment and recreation in their leisure hours.
Do not Imagine that you can get the same measure of enjoyment 'out of
some other Player. Superior methods of construction and exclusive musical
advantages have made the PIANOLA and PIANOLA Piano tbe standard Instruments of
tliefr class in every market of the world. Remember that he name "PIANOLA" applies
only ' to tbe Instruments made by the Aeolian Oo.
