A. B. Strait was over from Boardman
Wednesday to present a new petition
for a ferry franchise to the county
court. Mr. Strait has moved the loca
tion of his ferry again and desires to
get a landing on the Oregon side of the
Columbia at Boulder, which Is just op
posite Alderdale In Washington. If
this franchise is granted, It will not be
necessary for the Portland Chamber of
Commerce to take away that road
money from rendleton In order that
the Wnllula cut-off on the Columbia
highway be constructed. The Yakima

tory that Portland Is Interested In can
route their tourists via the Strait ferry

Ideal one for a ferry.
