Devoted to the Interests of the Peninsula, the Manufacturing Center of the Northwest
ST. JOHNS, OREGON, FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1912.
A $3,000,000 Plant
Plaus have been completed by
the Portland Gas and Coke compa
ny to begin work in building a
gigantic gas manufacturing plant
on a strip of land directly south of
the Government moorings 011 the
west side of the Willamette River.
The plant will cost $3,000,000 and
be one of the most modern and
largest establishments in the Unit
ed States. As it is gradually built
up it will take the place by degrees
of the present plant of the company
near the Union Depot, the plans be
ing to have the new plant generate
all tuc gas used in the city.
uuring tins year the company
will spend $700,000 in building the
nrst unit of the plant a generating
station capable of manufacturing
3,000,000 feet of gas per day and
in constructing n system of mains
along the Litintoil roud to Portland
and the first part of an extensive
parking system which is to extend
over the 40 acres of ground owned
by the company and comprising
the gas site. Within three years
the plant will be complete nud the
expenditure will total $3,000,000
I he company has owned the
North Portland site for a number of
years and has been working a long
time 011 the plans of the proposed
plant, completing the details only a
few days ago. It is proposed, be
sides making the plant large enough
to meet the needs of Portland for
many years, to install facilities for
handling large steamship shipments
ot oil trout California oil fields, the
plans calling for large modern docks
on the water front. The present
system of hauling the oil on barges
irom tuc large storage tanks at
Portsmouth will be discontinued
nud the steamers will be unloaded
nt the gas works instead of nt Ports
mouth. 1 he present plant near the depot
has a capucity of 5,000,000 feet of
gas a day. The new plant when
completed will have n capacity of
10,000,000 feet daily. The plant
now used in manufacturing bri
quettes from the lampblack of the
oil will be moved to the new site
nud increased incapacity from 50
tons to 100 n day.
The machinery at the new plant
will be modern in every particular,
including the most up to dutc
pumps and generators. The pres
cut storage tanks in various
parts of the city will be maintained
ns nt present nnd will be connected
with the new plant as rapidly ns
possible. The large mains will ex
tend down the Liuntou road to con
nect with the present high pressure
arteries which in turn supply the
consumers. The franchise to use
the Lintiton road already has been
secured and the company has ar
ranged with the Ilnrrimnu jieople
for the use of the new steel bridge
to carry the supply mains to t lie
Kust Side. The high pressure
mains will pass over the lift span
by means of a piping arrangement
which works much the same as
the slides of a slide trombone, the
arrangement making possible the
lifting of the bridge nt any time
without interference with the gas
In October next it is planned to
have the first unit completed and
ready for the manufacture of 3,000,
000 feet of gas daily. At that time
the old plant will be closed down
gradually. Construction work will
be coutiutied after the first unit is
completed .until the entire plant is
The site of the new plant is to be
landscaped to conform with the
Bennett plans. An extensive sys
tem of parks has been arranged,
including walks and driveways, so
that the site will have an attractive
appearance. The Port of Portland
has arranged to make an extensive
fill on the water front over which
the gas company will place modern
docks for the handling of the oils.
This land-filling work, or a section
of it at least, will comprise a part
of the first unit and will be com
pleted along with subsequent units.
The object of the company in
making the vast expenditure is two
fold. The growing demand for gas
has made the present plans too small
to cope with the situation, and the
company it is said, has beeu bro't
face to face with the need of greatly
enlarging the generation system.
With four blocks of property near
the depot well covered with the
present plant, it was considered
necessary to secure a new location.
Another reason is the complaint
about the gas plant occupying a
site near the center of the city. The
two propositions have caused the
company to decide on the modern
system in a district remote from
the residence aud business sections
and still within easy reach of the
city. The property near the depot
will be kept by the company for

Very little interest was taken in
the primary election held last
Saturday.only 120 voters participate

the matter, while others were too
indifferent to go to the polls. The
list of candidates on the republican
ticket was small, while the demo

necessitating the writing in of nil

Death of Elmo Waldref
Klmo Waldref was instantly
killed February 15th nt Cromwell,
Minn., by being crushed between
two box cars, one of which he was
trying to stake into clear on a side
track, by holding n short piece of
timber against the comers of the
two cars when n sudden lurch of
the cars caused the timber to slip,
forcing Flmo between the cars and
crushing his body above the hips
iu n terrible mniincr. The body
was removed to Duluth and held
there until his relatives were noti
fied, who ordered its immediate
shipment to St. Johns, Oregon.
Flmo was the second son of Mr.
and Mrs. H. Mt Waldref of this
city, aud was born at Moose Lake,
Miun., nearly 27 years ago. His
brother Fred resides nt Gleudivc,
Mont., and Miss Kthel, the only
daughter, resides with her parents
iu bt. Johns.
Klmo Waldref had been cm
ployed by the Northern Pacific rail
road during the summer on n steam
shovel ns cruuesmau nud iu the
winter months had been braking
on freight trains of the same com
patty. The division superintend
cut stated that Klmo was one of
the most promising young men the
company had iu its employ. The

orders were muguificentand ntuncr

so great that it will probably be
necessary for more than one spe

I he day set apart is March 14, nud
trains will leave Portland on the
afternoon of March 12. Word has
been received from such extreme

will nlso. Kugene is planning to
send a banner delegation of fifty or
more; this will be the largest out

members of the Portland Commer

the most of the delegates will be
accompanied by their ladies, the oc
casion will be of considerable socinl
significance. The fare from Port

unusual honor, even over Cali
