HOWELL TO REPLY
Is Preparing to Answer F. M.
WILL AGAIN EXAMINE BRIDGE
Member of Executive Board Declares
Profits Are Even Larger Than
His First Investigation
.Howell, member of the Ex-
has taken a Arm stana
v. mDiier of his? charces against the
Pacific Construction Company, and Is pre
paring not only to refute Mr. Butlers
statement, but to prove conclusively that
the great profits made on the extras for
the Morrison-street bridge are even more
than he at first inferred.
Today, Mr. Howell will go over the
bridge, accompanied "by an expert, to
make several measurements. He has un
der preparation a written reply to Mr.
Butler, of a text more explicit than his
communication to the Executive Board.
In an interview last night, Mr. Howell
said: , , ...
"Mr Butler required four days in which
to answer the claims of Mr. Bihler and
myself, and I am preparing this second
statement with much deliberation.
"I have no desire to hurry It to press,
tut when It Is complete, the letter will
1j so thorough in its detail that Mr. But
ler will be squelched. I have not the
tightest intention of giving him an op
pohtunity to come back at me.
"My letter will show the falsity of Mr.
Butler's position and prove that the -proceeds
to the Pacific Construction Company
from the extras on the Morrison-street
bridge are more outrageous than I at
"I shall go over the bridge with an ex
pert and make a few measurements for
my own satisfaction, and not because I
have the slightest doubt as to whether
cr not I am right. I wish my letter to
delve into the most minute details of the
transaction, and for that reason I deem
the figuros necessary-"
Charles S. Bihler, the constructing en
gineer, who. In his report to the Council,
charged that the Pacific Construction
Company made a clean 515,000 on the sub
stitution of steel for wood stringers. Is at
present in Tacoma. Just wnen he will
return to Portland cannot be definitely
stated, but he will resume his work of In
vestigation lor UIO wuncu in uic wj
SAo is retfdned to make an examination
of he (South Front-street bridge across
Maruam. Gulch, and the bridge across
Balch's Gulch, near Willamette Heights.
These two bridges are built of steel, but
are not of the draw type. The Pacific
Construction Company holds the contracts
lor their construction, but has sublet them
to J. B. Stuesner and J. B. Lock-wood re
spectively. Mr. Bihler, it is said, may. In his in
Testigation, discover mismanagement in
the construction of these bridges, and the
public is apparently expectant of another
sensation In Portland's bridge contracts.
The city has $70,000 which Is due the
Pacific Construction Company on the Morrison-street
bridge. It Is evident that the
Council has no intention of liquidating the
Pacific Construction Company's account
until Mr. Blhler's Investigation are com
plete. The altered, unjust profits, made by
tAe Pacific Construction Company will,
it Is said, bo deducted from the amount
due This yms to be the only possible
ontrWrrnrr affair. Mr. Blhler's reports
and Mr. Howell's letters will probably
be taken under careful consideration at
the next Council meeting.
New Vaudeville Bills

Korman Margetson, the little German,
Is good in his character work, and
Pearl Grayson sings an illustrated
pong, "Down at the Baby Store."
One of the star acts of vaudeville, the
Kohno-Starko-Arco troupe of Arab aero
bats, Is the sensation this week, at the
Grand, and their work last night was
greeted with showers or applause. Such
tumbling and twisting, surface work as
the experts call it, and rifle swinging, is
alone worth the price of admission. Sev
cral of the troupe of seven have been here
before, and the band is stronger than ever.
One performer swings a rifle so rapidly
that It Is next to Impossible to see it, and
another whirling dervish astonishes one
by his continuous turning movements,
The troupe's tumbling and acrobatic feats
are wonderful. Lavlna and Arlington ap

Pour Roberts arouse interest and especi
ally please the children In their playlet.
"The Dollmakers Dilemma," and Alf
Bonner earns applause by his singing of
the tearful illustrated ballad, "When the
Bees Are in the Hive." The grandlscope
film pictures a fanciful voyage in an air
thlp to the starry regions, and In a sub
marine to explore the depths of the sea,
with amusing adventures en route. The
entertaining bill also Includes: Kenton
and Xiorralne, entertainers; J. O. "Wise,
the ambltextrous Choctaw cartoonist; and
Cummlngs and Morley in their sketch,
"The Bogus Count." Like all vaudeville
theaters in town yesterday, the Grand
was crowded at all performances.
"Without doubt one of the greatest sou
brettes and vaudeville singers In the bust
ness Is Daisy Harcourt, who, in deference
to a popular demand, has been engaged
lor anotner week at the Star. It is be
cause she is so well equipped In her art
that she differs from so many other per-
lormers. ane is good-looking, wears a fine
wardrobe, speaks so distinctly that she
Is heard all over the theater, and makes
the biggest kind of a hit with her sons:.
"Do That Again." The Taggart family
or aero oats with sensational feats Is an
other big feature act. A hit is also made
by Montgomery, Cantor & Company, two
men and a boy. One of the adults is a
clever pianist, and both he and his mate
excel as dancers and funmakers, while
the boy is a natural actor. Ellis and Pa
loma present a high-class singing act,
the man having an excellent high bari
tone voice, and, the young woman a fair
soprano. Their quarrel scene, from "Lu
cia di Lammermoor, is worth seeing.
The projectoscope pictures, illustrating
Japs wrecking a Russian train, and the
subsequent execution of the Japs, are
very interesting. Arthur Lane makes
good with his illustrated ballad, "My Rose
From Tennessee," and the other acts are:
"Williams, juggler, and the two Delkes,
sketch artistes. The latter do an amus
ing Bowery dance.
Of strenuous and exciting interest Is
the boxing exhibition, with gloves, be
tween Dave Barry and his sparring part

and women appeared to enjoy the shifty,
rapid-fire work of the two young men,
and boys who had never seen anything of
the kind before, but had read about it.

and a singer. Last night he told a hard

loaded gun, that almost brought down
the house. His song, "The Opening of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition," won ap
plause. Harrison Brothers, one attired as
a fat woman, were welcomed with a roar
of laughter. One of their songs Is I'm a

wins his sweetheart at the same time.
Llols Mendenhall is a high-class violin
ist. She Is a pretty girl dressed In white,
and her selections were a delight. Dan
and Bessie Kelly are a funny team. The
man makes up as a most ludicrous-look

about the dogcatcher of a new town near
Portland. Bessie Kelly has a good so
prano voice, her songs being: "I Prom

trated song is "Make a Fuss Over Me."
Sylvan and O'Nell. sketch artists, have
a turn In which the man is a German
comedian and a tumbler. He wears a
Rob Roy tartan and has a good joke
about the relation of war to pancakes.
The Waldron Brothers are two of the
best comedy singers who have been heard
here for months, one performer being
stout and the other thin. Their fun is of
the Infectious, happy kind.
The Kober Brothers are great laugh-
makers at the Baker this week. They
present an aerial-ladder act that might or
dinarily pass for a gymnastic stunt,- but
not so with the Kobers. One performer
bounded on the etage last night dressed
as an acrobat, but Just then a confederate
announced that the other Mr. Kober was
sick and couldn't appear. "I don't believe
it," snappishly said a yokel-looking man
In one of the seats In the third row from
the front. A wordy and amusing war of
words took place, at the end of which
the stranger scrambled to the stage, top
boots and all, and anounccd his intention
of mounting the ladder. He did, and
then the audlonce discovered that the
yokel was the "sick" Mr. Kober, and that
he is as clever an acrobat as any. Edith
Clark, she of the sunny hair, laugh and
voice, is a pretty vision In pink and then
black and white. Her song, "Maybe," Is
a fetching one. The blograph shows pic
tures of life in Burmah and other parts of
the East, and John W. "Wood sings a new

SANTA VISITS THE ABHY.
Salvation Barracks Scene of Christ
After making 2000 needy people comfort
able and happy Christmas Day by sending
them baskets of food and serving a hot
Christmas dinner, the Salvation Army
last night turned its attention to the chil
dren and hundreds of little tots who had
no Christmas tree at home nor any
presents were delighted with an Invitation
to enjoy such festivities with the army.
There- were two trees at No. 4 Hall, 265
Davis street, and one at No. 1 Hall, 12S
First, and both were surrounded by
At No. 4 Hall the trees were both
handsomely decorated and after the chil
dren had gazed at them In admiration
and awe, old Santa Claus appeared in
person with pockets overflowing with
pretty gifts. A number of fairies en
tered the hall about this time and old
Kris was searched by them before he was
allowed to distribute the glfta from the
trees. Every child was given a toy and
plenty of candy and nuts, and was cor
respondingly happy. After these festl--ltles
had been thproughly enjoyed a short
programme was rendered by Lieutenant
Minnie Rogers, who gave "Nearer, My
God, to Thee" in pantomime and several
other religious' numbers which were very
The meeting was in charge of Ensign
Maud BIgney and was entirely successful
from every standpoint. Children were
made happy and parents grateful and all
voted the Salvation Army their slncerest
thanks. The tree at 128 First street was
a repetition of those at No. A. The decorations-
were pretty and the children just as
happy.' Ensign Kuhn was in charge and
one of the novelties in the programme
was the appearance of Father Time.
The watch service New Year's Eve will
be held at Hall No. 4, 2G5 Davis street.
The regular meeting will be held in the
early part of the evening and at 10:30 the
watch service will begin and will consist
of prayer and songs of thanksgiving. At
the midnight hour the entire assembly
will fall on their knees and greet the In
coming year with a devout and humble
Tlie usual experiences were met with
this year In distributing the Christmas
dinners. Hundreds of them were sent
out and Major Dubbins states that fully
2000 persons were fed. The demand far
exceeded what the army expected and
purchases were made up until very late
Saturday night. So many new cases came
up at the last minute and on Christmas
Day that the work was begun all over
again yesterday and baskets were being
sent out until late last evening so that
none would be disappointed.
The workers state that In the majority
of cases the beneficiaries were most
grateful, but that there were numerous
Instances of families who seemed to ex
pect such things and feel that the Salva
tion Army was only for such a purpose.
Many cases of- destitution were encoun
tered and many of shlftlessness, where
families were living In squalor. Those
which were helpless through the sickness
of one or both parents were the saddest
cases, one being noticed where there were
eight children under 14 years of age, the
mother sick In bed and the father also
unable to work. A little girl came to one
of the distributing halls for a basket, and
she got one almost as large as herself.
In many instances families had to ask
who were not accustomed to seeking char
ity and who shrank from doing so, but
circumstances this year had compelled
them to do so. The members of the army
feel that the people who were grateful
more than repaid them for the weeks of
bard work which they have been doing,
