v - - ' o aeasoa for Change,'
"One of the chief advertising fea
tures f Portland would be wiped out
If Broadway Is changed, back to Seventh
street." declared red Spoerl, manages
of the Paclrio Telephone & Telegraph
company. Broadway has become one of
the big arteries of trafflo in Portland.
Blnce the name has been adopted It
has grown rapidly, and has baeq adver
tised widely. - It lLrlght and proper that
the name should be retained because It
xtenda across the cir-and th mere
slight difficulty ln'dlsttlbuttag the Intll
should : be no- reaaon ' for' an ordinance
killing the thoroughfare' Individuality.
A new lyatem i-of numherlng , would
straighten out this small tangleVa -V :
t fThere is no more, legitimate reason
for changing the name of Broadway
than there would be to change Park or
West Park,": said O. 3. Kaufmajin. man
ager of the Portland hotaL "Even the
agitators know there la no valid reaaon
tor ine cnanKe. if a little trouble has
been found la finding addresses, that
eon easily be remedied by renumbering
the buildings, giving a different set of
number for the east and west sides."
Phil Metschan J'r., , of the Imperial
expressed himself in like terms, as did
a numoer of other business men. . .,. .
