;for Modification of
CHARGE PAVING MONOPOLY
Warren Construction Company Un
derbid Tjy Rival $5,135.09 on
Second-Street Work a'nd
$3,420.28 on Couch.
lie first gun in the skirmish of what
promises to be a battle royal oer the
question of street paving contracts of
Portland was fired at the pession of the
Executive Board yesterday aftornoon,
Vhen the Barber Asphalt Paving Com
pany entered Into competition with the
Warren Construction Company In bidding
for the work of paving Second street,
from the north line of Morrison to the
Bouth line of Gllsan, and Couch street
from the west line of First to the east
line of Fourteenth, under the specifica
tions calling for Warren's bltullthlc pave
ment In conformity with the petition of a
majority of the property-owners.
Upon the Second-street contract the
Barber Asphalt Paving Company bid $27,
173.70. or 5L70 a square yard, as against
$32,319.69, or $2 a square yard, of the War
ren Construction Company, each offering
to maintain the street In good repair for
a period of ten years at 2& cents a square
yard per year.
On the Couch-street proposition the
Barber people bid $26,160.83, and. the War
ren Construction Company J29.K57.il, both
offering to keep up repairs ten years on
the 2&-cents-a-square-yard basis. Ac
companying the bids of the asphalt people
was the following letter, which was road
to the Board by Auditor Devlin, and
which was productive of somewhat of a
"To the Honorable Executive Board of
the City of Portland:
"Gentlemen Explanatory and as a part
Df our attached bid for the improvement
3f Second street, we most respectfully
Bubmlt the following: The ordinance for
this improvement calls for a bltullthlc
pavement, and the specifications for the
pavement require the use In its con
struction of Warren's Puritan brand of
-ements and others materials. 'Bltullthlc
s an arbitrary word that has been
adopted and Is used by the Warren Con
struction Company as a trademark to
distinguish Its pavements of the kind in
question from pavements of the same
kind made by other people. As such
trademark, the word Is the exclusive
property of said company. 'Warren's
Puritan Brand' is the trademark adopted
and used by the Warren Construction
Company to designate its particular brand
af certain materials that are used lnsthe
making of pavements. This brand is ex
r'uslvely owned and controlled by said
"We are able and ready to put down,
nnder any other name or without any
name, the same identical pavement that
the Warren Construction Company puts
Sown under the name 'bltullthlc,' and we
are able and ready to lay such pavement

the specifications prepared therefor, ex,-
;pi oniy that wo cannot use warren a

ible and ready to back up our assertion
with our contract, our bond, our money
and our work.
"If the mention in the ordinance and
ipeclficatlons of this particular trade
marked name and these particular prl
rate brands is to preclude the making
of the same identical pavement under
iny other name than 'bltullthlc' or
with any other1 materials than War
den's Puritan brands, all competition
:n bidding is stifled, the calling for and
Opening of bids is a farce, and the
Warren Construction Company is given
m absolute monopoly of this kind of
work. The monopoly thus created in
cludes not only the pavement proper,
sut extends to the grading, sidewalks,
iurbing, stone blocks and all other
items comprised In the Improvement,
ts the contractor who cannot furnish
barren's Puritan brand of materials

iontrols that brand will charge what
t sees fit or all the items embraced
,n the Improvement.
"We therefore make this bid for the im
provement of Second street on the condi
tion that if it is accepted and. the work
twarded to us. some name that Is not
trade-marked will be used instead of
bltulithlc In our contract, and the specl
Scations will be modified by substituting

ruage which describes and deflnes the na

'Warren's Puritan Brands,' the words 'or
any other material of like character that
Is equally as good,' or any other language
Jf similar Import. In other words, we bid
in the work exactly as called for in the
rdinance and specifications, and only ask
for the elimination therefrom of those
private trade-marked words and brands
tvhich absolutely prevent competitive bid

the order of the Mayor of. the City of

Th difference between the bids of the
the rival concerns amounts to $5li5.99 on
the Second-street contract, and $3426.28
Tor that of Couch street All were re
ferred to the street committee of the Ex
ecutive Board, which is composed of R.
L. Sabin. chairman; Max F. Flelschner
and Richard Wilson. The Barber As
phalt Paving Company, through Charles
Craney, as manager, also submitted the
following in relation to the purchase of
the old material on Second street:
"Attached to the original petition for
the Improvement of Second street is a
communication from tne Warren Con
struction Company to Frank Kiernan. In
which said company says it will agree to
allow 60 cents per square yard for the old
itone blocks on the street; unless the
property-owners xan get a better price
lor them from other parties. There is'
nothing in the oroinance or specifications
or Invitation for bids for the improve
ment of Second street that calls upon
any contractor to state what he will al
low for these old stone blocks. ,but in
lubmitting our enclosed bid for this im
provement, we desire to say that If the
stone blocks are to be removed and taken
by the. contractor, we will allow and pay
60 cents per square yard for all the old
stone blocks now on the street."
Immediately after adjournment of the
Executive Board. Chairman Sabin and
M. F. Flelschner, of the street commit
tee, held an informal session In the City
Engineer's office, at which were also
present, besides City Engineer Wanxer,
W. - L. Archambeau, representing the
Warren Construction Company; Frank
Kiernan and Attorneys W. M. Davis and
Dan J. Malarkey. who appeared for the
Warren Construction Company and the
.aarber Asphalt Paving Company, re
spectively. Tnls meeting, which lasted
about an hour and a half, was charac
terized by a hot argument between the
two lawyers on the bltullthlc question,
and resulted in a general discussion of
about every' phase of the street-paving
situation. In which Malarkey made a
strong point in the contention that, while
the charter calls for competitive bids in
all street work, there was no possibility
of such competition where the specifica
tions call for a certain brand of paving
material that is protected by a trade
mark. He contended that a monopoly In
street paving, such as the specifications
in question created on their face, was
contrary to American institutions produc
tlvo of fraud and favoritism, and sub
versive -of good government. He said
that no fair-minded person should object
to competition, and that there was noth
ing in the construction of the so-called
bltullthlc pavement that anyone in the
paving business could not duplicate, and
tnat the specifications, and not the name,
determined the kind of improvement, and
that the city authorities should prepare
and submit specifications without mo
nopolistic earmarks, and then Insist upon
a strict compliance therewith by tho con
tractor to whom the work was awarded.
Malarkey insisted that he did not want
to be understood as obstructing street
Improvements In any way. "AH we
want," said he, "is to be given an op
portunity to compete."
He held further that tho Warren Con
struction Company was endeavoring to
create a monopoly in this Instance, and
that property-owners on the two streets
affected would pay dearly for the use of a
Frank Kiernan related the circum
stances attending "the circulation of the
petition for the street improvements, and
was fearful lest the present difficulty
would result in deprMng the property
owners of the use of the streets in case
the matter became a subject of litigation,
as now seems likely.
Malarkey replied that he felt certain
Mr. Klornan was not anxious to foster
monopoly, and reiterated that the Bar
ber people had no wish to Intorfcse with
street improvements in any manner to
Attorney W. M. Davis said that It was
useless to listen to MY. Malarkey's argu
ments, and threatened that if the Board
awarded the bids to the Barbor Asphalt
company the Warren Construction Com
pany would enjoin them and throw the
matter into the courts. He contended
that the Barber concern had been tried
and found wanting, and could not get one
third of the property-owners anywhere
for their bituminous macadam. "Iet
them go before the people who are famil
iar with the two pavements," said ho. "It
"has had Its day, and there must be some
thing rotten In Denmark when they re
sort to such 'knocking methods as send
ing out anonymous communications 5n an
endeavor to create public sentiment
against the Warren people's system of
paving In various cities."
Davis charges that photographs of a
section of Chestnut street, St. Louis, had
been sent broadcast over the country in
which a brick pavement was referred to as
bltullthlc. He admitted that the Warren
Construction Company enjoyed a monop
oly of this peculiar grade of pavement,
but stated that it was a monopoly in
which the property-owners seemed well
satisfied to let conditions remain as they
The Executive Board may have to re
ject .the Barber Company's bids on the
ground that they do not strictly conform
to the ordinance and specifications. In
such event, the matter will have to be de
cided by the Council, in which body was
recently introduced ordinances the pass
age of which would put a stop to the mo
nopoly complained of.

Corps Engineer Has
Major S. W. Roessler, of Washington,
D. C, reached the city yesterday after
noon to become the successor to Major
W. C. Langfitt as corps engineer In charge
of fortifications and river and harbor
improvements and engineer of the 13th
lighthouse district. The new officer has
not as yet learned when he will take
charge of his office here, the change being
dependent upon the return to the city of
Major Langfltt, who is. at present in the
Pugot Sound district, where he Is mak
ing an investigation of projects recom
mended to the department, but not yet
Major Roessler brings to the city the
information that his precedeccor has been
appointed, upon the dato of his leaving
Washington, as a member of the Board of
Inspectors of Rivers and Harbors, which
board was created by an act of 1S02, the
duties of which shall be to examine and
pass upon all original projects for the
improvement of rivers and harbors before
final action by the Department of War or
tht Board of Engineers, and before Con
gress has taken any decisive action.
Major LanSfitt has joined the bther mem
bers of the board, and Is now making an
investigation of work projected In the
Pugct Sound district, upon which an ex
amination was ordered at the last session
of -Congress. He will not return to Port
land until the middle of the week, and
until that time no announcement can be
made as to the date of the transfer of
the office here from the old officer to
the new. Major Roessler can as yet say
nothing of his plans for work to be done
here, as he has not had time to become
familiar with the details of his office or
of the work to be done or under way in
the district, but on Monday he will join
Colonel Heuer, division engineer from San
Francisco, who will arrive in Portland for
an examination of the work now being
done at the mouth of the Columbia.
The new officer anticipates a pleasant
as well as a busy time In his new home
and position, as In addition to the work
now on hand the contract for the com
mencement ofwork on the canal at Celilo
will be let In a short time and construc
tion will be commenced there.
"The work here Is of great magnitude
as well as of great Importance." said
Major Roessler, at the Hobart-Curtls last
night: "but I. do not wish to say any
thing as to what will be done at this
time, not having become acquainted with
the details of my office as yet. The work
at the mouth of the Columbia will also
bo of great value to the state. The ten
dency of commorce to bring Into use ves
sels of deeper and deeper draft makes it
essential that the channel to the sea be
made deep and kept deep. It Is also es
sential to the commerce of the whole
state that a deep-water channel be main
tained from the harbor of Portland to the
sea, for the prosperity of the state de
pends In a reflected manner at least upon
the shipping centers of the state."
The Major predicts that it will not be
long before the Government demands
state assistance before granting appropri
ations for harbor Improvements.
"As shown by the action of Congress a
short time, ago in asking the State of
Pennsylvania to contribute to the Im
provement fund for deepening Delaware
River, the tendency of Congress Is to
ward asking aid from the state in carry
ing out river -and harbor Improvements.

Bnt Telegraph Appears to Hold tho
Sternvrhecl Record From Astoria.
The statement of CaDtaln Scott that th
Telegraph beat the record for the run up
the river from Astoria to Portland-brought
forth many denials yesterday.
It la stated that the T. J. Potter has
made the 115 miles, more or less. In 5
hours and SO minutes. This was made on
several Saturday night runs, when she
came straight through with a crowd from
the beaches and made no way stops.
Captain W. H. Patterson says thaff he
has brought the steamship Columbia from
Astoria In exactly the same time. It was
when the vessel was fresh and clean that
she made this time, remarkably fast for a
seagoing vessel of tho Columbia's class.
Until the Spencer or some of the local
boats lowers the Telegraph's time of 5
hours and 55 minutes, it will probably
stand as the record for sternwhcelcrs.
The Telegraph yesterday went to the
yards of the Portland Shipbuilding Com
pany, at Fulton, where a false keel will
be removed and a heavy coat of paint ap
plied. She Is to be ready for whatever run
Is-chosen by the middle of next week.

or who-ln any way have been guilty of
any offense, but slmRly a crowd of young
sters who want a vacation, and Judge
Frazer and his associates have provided
the means. The O. R. & N. Co. furnishes
the transportation, and numerous mer
chants have contributed liberally. The
boys who went to the beach a week ago
will return to make room for the others.

EVER TREAT YOU SO?
Coffee Acts tbeJonah and Will. Come Up.
A clergyman who pursues his noble
calling In a country parish In Iowa, tells
of his coffee experience:
"My wife and-1 used coffee resularly
for breakfast, frequently for dinner sfnd
occasionally for supper always the very
best quality package coffee never could
find a place on our table.
"In the Spring of 1S95 my wife was
taken with violent vomiting which we
had great difficulty in stopping.
"It seemed to come from coffee-drinking,
but we could not decide.
"In the following July, however, she
was attacked a second time by the vomit
ing. 1 was away from home filling an ap
pointment at the time, and on my return
I found her very low; she had Uterally
jrpmlted herself almost to death, and it
took some days to quiet the trouble and
restore her stomach.
"I had- also experienced the same
trouble, but not so violently, and had re
lieved It, each time, by a resort to medi
cine. "But my wife's second attack satisfied
me that the use of coffee was at the bot
tom of our troubles, and so we stopped It
forthwith and took on Postum Food
Coffee. The old symptoms of disease
disappeared and during the nine years
that we have been using Postum Instead
of coffee we have never had a recurrence
of the vomiting. We never weary of
Postum. to which we know we owo our
good health. This is a simple statement
of facts." Name slven by Postum Com
