MILL DOCKS WILL EE CUT IN TWAK
Portland Railway. Light A power
Company Asks 1512,000 For
Tho Eaat Side Canal
PORTLAND, Sept 18. (Special!. -
Major Mclhdoe, of the United Bute
engineering Corps, having In charge
tbo proposed construction of - the
canal around the Falls, haa made pub
lic the details of bis official report
to tbo War Department. Ho place
tho coat of construction for an Eaat
Side canal at 8775,000, without con
sidering tha cost of tho right of way
and the- damage which will accrue
from Injury to ' riparian rights and
loss of high water power. The esti
mated cost of an eaat aide canal,
made by Major Mclndoe, io aa fol
27,000 cubic yards rock exca
vation at $2.50 per cubic
yard f 67,600
29,000 cubic yard subaque

$30 per footi,....

Engineering and contlngen " "
cles o 129,000
Damage Not Estimated.
"The value of the right of way on
this route la problematical,' aaya tho
Major in hla report "The only struc tures
to bo removed would be the -wharf
of the Oregon Railroad ft Navt-
gation Company and the Crown-Co- '
lumbia Pulp ft Paper Company build
ings. 'A hundred foot right of way
for about L400 feet along tbo water
front, estimated at $10 a front foot, ,
will coat $14,000. to which may be
added $G.400 for the dock, making
a total estimated' cost of canal aafl
locka $795,400. No estimate la in
cluded for damages to riparian own
era, for loaa of water power or for
damages to others claiming Interests .
which would necessarily be Interfered
with by tho construction of locks on
tho oast side of tho Falls. The ripar
ian owners claim riparian privilege
as far as tho center of the river chan
nel." . . - '
It will bo observed from the fore
going report that Major Mclndoe ,
eliminates the Hawley pulp ft Paper
Company, and the figure, $775,000, by
which be hopes to secure tho con
struction, is baaed upon tho fact that
the lino of tho canal only strikes the
Crown-Columbia Pulp A' Paper Com
pany buildings and destroys tho Ore
gon Railroad ft Navigation Company
wharf. Mr." Hawley maintains that
the proposed canal, oven if It does
not hit his building, will destroy his
wharf, which is not mentioned In tne
report. The valuation of the water
front at $10 a foot Is regarded aa very
Route Cuts Through Docks. '
Over and above the figure $775,000
la the cost of the riparian rights and
, damages to the property which lie
between the proposed eaat aide canal
and the river. A considerable strip
of this land will be separated from
the mainland, and the disadvantage
In being so placed will have to be
determined when It comes to the
question of value. A strip of land
Is used at present for dockage by the
Hawley Pulp ft Paper Company, run
ning from Main street to the liver.
The canal will cut thla directly In
As to tho water power lights. It Is
a long and doubtful story and of
necessity will Involve a groat deal of
dispute. Just how this matter may
bo determined is hard to outline. It
Is asserted that the damages wblch
will be asked for will run up to con
siderable more than $500,000. Uius
making the cost of an east side canal
$1,275,000, If a half million dollara
Is the vslue of tho power rights and
property damages from construction
of an east side canal. .
Major Mclndoe' estimate of the
cost, according to his report, of re
constructing; the west side canal la
as follows: ,
Renewing timber work and
fenders In cavan and locks. $15,000
7 pairs new wooden gates
. complete with valves and -4
' all working parts (lnclud- ' ,'
Ing remodeling of old
.gates) at $5,000 per pair.. 85,000
14,000 cubic yards concrete
for dividing wall, at $8 per

- ctes '
Total i. $300,000
Canal Offered For 8512,000.
The price aaked by the Portland
Railway, Light ft Power Company for
Ita west side canal la $512,000, which,
with the $300,000 Major Mclndoe es
timates aa necessary to make the old
canal Into a modern one, would place
tho coat of reconstruction at $812,000.
One of Major Mclndoe's - expressed
desires is to utilize the west side :
canal for. tba transporting of boats '
while a government canal la being
constructed on the - east side, and
for that reason ho prefers the eaat
side proposition, even though It costs
