Is Growing Rapidly In Mem
bers and Enthusiasm
Would Beautify City
If the suggestion of A. H. Lee, secre
tary of the state fair hoard is followed,
the ramping grounds near the fair
grounds will not hereafter be used as
a cow pasture. The new secretary stat
ed this in an address last evening be
fore the Salem Floral society, held in
the auditorium of the Commercial elub.
That Certain ground along the railroad
part of the state fair grounds, should
be given to tho Floral society for them
to beautify, not only from an artistic
standpoint, but for the advertising ef
fect upon tourists passing through, was
another suggestion of Mr. Lea.
Working with the Floral society, he
said that the fair grounds would in
many ways be beautified. One of these
was the changing of a low muddy spot
on tne grounus into a pond, parVrt with
flowers and another was the filling of
several old wells, to be planted over
with flowers, working with the society.
Judge William Galloway in a short
talk, referred to the time when he was
president of the state fair board and
the proposition of selling the land for
10 an acre was being favorably con
sidered. The judge said that it was his
deciding vote that saved tho fair
grounds for tho state. He was in fa
vor of the extension of a good road to
the grounds from Capital street and
thought that if the property owners
would co-operate, the state and city
wouia ao tnoir snare.
Mrs. Edyth Tozier Wethnrred, who
presided at tho meeting, supported Sec
retary A. II. Lea in his ideas of im
proving conditions in the camping
grounds and the giving of the Floral
society the privilege of beautifying the
grounds near ,tho fouthen Pacififc
Besides the addresses the evening's
program included a vocal solo by Miss
Marguerite Flower, n violin solo bv Miss
Pearl George, a reading by Miss Pauline
Remington and violin solo by Miss

In his opinion Justice Moore says:
"It is believed the causo of justice
will be promoted by making an injunc
tion against any further alteration of
tho street in front of the plaintiff's
(remises temporary, and requiring tho
excav.ition to be filled until his right
has been secured by compromise, or if
this cannot be obtained then by con
demnation when the amount of damages
which he has suffered can be determ
ined by a jury. ' '
Justice Bean, Harris and Hcnson con
curred in the opinion. Attorney Charles
L. McN.iry, represented the "plaintiff
and Halph K. Moody and George G.
