Water Board Again Decides to
Open Bids and Invites
Competition.
CASTIRON HAS NO CINCH
Telegram From Ttisdon. Iron Works,
of San. Francisco, Forces Board
to Action,, and Former De
cision Is -Revoked.
ASKS FOB A CHANCE TO BID.
The telegram to Mayor Lane from the
RlBdon Iron "Works, of San Francisco,
that forced- tho "Water Board to permit
competition from the riveted steel manu
facturers, followu:
"We understand that nil pipe bids
have been rejected and that new tend
ers -will bo asked for costlron only.
We want a chance to bid again on steel
pipe and have the bids compared on
their relative merit, life and cost ot pipe
to be duly considered."
The corporation la one of the largest
of lto kind In the United States, and
ha for yeara been a keen contender for
Government shipbuilding contracts In
volving millions. Upon receipt of this
telegram Wednesday evening. Mayor
Lane held a hurried consultation by
telephone with. Dr. Josephl and Mr.
Bates, members of the "Water Board,
and arranged for a special meeting of
the body yesterday afternoon, at which
time the surrender occurred.
Another complete 'back-down from its
attitude on the water pipe question waB
Teslftered against the "Water Board yes
terday. Tho night fcofore Mayor Lane had
received a telegram from the Rlsdon
Iron Works of San Francisco that loft
the Water Board no alternative but to
reopen the bids- for material for a main
from Mount Tabor to Highland".
There was no mistaking the ring of this
telegram, hence Mayor Lane got busy
with his telephone and soon Dr. Jop'phl
and George "W. Bates were In poscsslon
of full details. Dr. C. H. Raffety could
not be reached, but it Is known that
the Mayor felt the necessity of calling
a. special meeting of the body for yes
lcrday afternoon. The Board hurried
through the unwholesome business that
called it together with as little delay
as possible. It did not tarry long over
details, but speedily adopted a resolu
tion calling for new bids November 27,
or Ave days later than the other one,
and permitting steel riveted piping to
enter the competition with castifon.
There is hardly any doubt that the
merits of the two materials will now
be freely ventilated. The matter hap
received publicity all over the country.
and It will have a tendency to- Invite
competition from every portion of the
L nlon. both in riveted steel and castiron.
and that is apparently what the people
of this city desire.
The Rlsdon Iron "Works has had some
of the most extensive shipbuilding and
mining machinery contracts ever award
ed on this Coast, and has an immense
plant at North Beach, on San Francisco
bay, large enough to absorb half a dozen
concerns of the Oswego type without
experiencing any appreciable difference
in size. The corporation has been an
active competitor for Government ship
building, on contracts involving the ex
penditure of millions in the construction
of warships for Uncle Sam, and it goes
-without saying that it will have repre
sentatives here prepared to' annihilate
some of the Ideas prevailing in the Water
noard concerning tho relative merits of
riveted steel and castifon.

WANTS WARRANT ISSUED
Oshkosh Man Alleges False Pre
tenses of Timber Locators.
H. Hartzheim of Oshkosh, Wis., called
upon District Attorney Manning yester
day afternoon and wanted a warrant
sworn out for Messrs. W. H. McCrossen
and J. W. Gardner, a local firm of tim
ber locaters, charging them -with obtain
ing money -under falBe pretenses.
It seems that Hartzheim together -with
ten other men from the same town was
induced to come out to Oregon for the
purpose of locating timber claims in
Douglas County by Messrs. McCrossen
and Gardner, and have since found that
the land located was barren and worth
less. When this fact was discovered,
Hartzhelm's companions, J. J. Duzan,
Louis Mehdler, J. C. Ansuscn, M. Duzan,
F. Steppes, J. H. McManamy and W. H.
St. John. compelleS him to execute a
deed of trust in their favor for property
in Wisconsin valued at an amount suffi
cient to cover the expenses of the party
to Portland and all they had paid In
agent's fees, and left him to secure re
dress from McCrossen and Gardner.
Hartzheim left the office of tho Dis
trict Attorney -with the assertion that he
would return later and swear to the war
rant but neglected to put in an appear
ance and the warrant was not Issued.

Smallpox has prevailed at Laurelwood
Park, a suburb in the eastern part of the
county, for the past month without any
report having been made to the authori
ties, and tho indications are that there
will be a serious spread of the disease be
fore it is finally checked. Children from
infected houses have been attending tho
public school In the district, and the
grown people have traveled about freely,
not suspecting the true nature of the
disease.
This state of affairs might have con

of Health Officer Dudley Evans yesterday
afternoon and made a report. She said
the had noticed that the children in tho
families of Mr. Siebold and Mr. Cook, her
neighbors, were afflicted with an eruptive
disease, which she strongly suspected was
smallpox. She did not think so at first,
and especially when Mrs. Cook scouted
the idea in response to an inquiry, but
when one after another became afflicted
and remained so for weeks she became
convinced that it was smallpox. The
cases must have been of a mild type, be
cause all tho children have recovered, and
no physician has been called to attend to
any of the cases. Mrs. Williamson re
marked to Mr. Evans: "I .don't care to
have this spread over the whole commu

constantly at work.
Mr. Evans, with a supply of disinfect

the scene, and on investigation ascer
tained that there were seven cases of
smallpox, and ordered a strict quarantine
ef the houses. He will go to the school
house this morning, and make an exam

MR. AND MRS. SAMUEL XV. DUXLAT.
Tuesday night, at the home of Samuel XV. Dunlap. at Stewart' Place, near
Arista, saw the culmination ot a, romance of love through correspondence that
has been going on for some time and which has had a; an agent and co-operator
the mall wervlce of 1'ncle Sam between Garnet, Kan., and Stewart's Place.
Mr. Dunlap. who Is a Jolly old bachelor of about 50 years, has a fine rnch
in Clackamas County, where he lives most of the time, but for the past few
months. In fact almost a year, he has been working In the Interest of the Dun
lap Bros, grocery store at Stewart's Station, which undoubtedly enjoys a mo
nopoly of the highest order. Since his arrival at Stewart's Station, where his
father and mother live, he has gradually succumbed to the artful phrases of
the publication ef an introducing agency until the climax was reached last
Tuesday night, soon after the arrival ot the happy bride from Garnet Kan
when Rev. T. B. Ford, of the M. E. Church at Sunnyslde. performed the sacred
marriage ceremony at the home of the bridegroom in the presence of the bride
groom's father, mother, four brothers and a cousin, besides numerous friends
of the family. Mrs. Dunlap's maiden name was Ada XV. Bowen, but Cupid
played his part well with photos and letters as his tools and now they are
married and happy. After tho ceremony the young people present serenaded
the nowly-wedded oouple and many friends arrived to offer best wishes for the
future, which, from all outward conditions will surely be realized. The early
part of next week will find the happy pair, married under peculiar but ro
mantic circumstances, well en their way to the Highland District, where the
ranch is located.
