Judge Webster's Busy Bay.
After spending the entire afternoon
yesterday acting with counsel for the
defendant In the Booth conspiracy trial
in the Federal Court. Judge Webster
returned to the Courthouse at- S o'clock
to hear objections to the closing of
the Martin Gillihan estate. Mrs, Lucy
Gardner contends that under the will
she is entitled to receive one-ninth of
the $60,000 estate. The heirs, on the
other hand, assert that the language of
the will implies that she shall not re
ceive the property. In support of this
contention they say that Gillihan, be
fore his death, was dissatisfied with
Mrs. Gardner's choice of a husband.
Coansel on both sides will submit
briefs, after which Judge Webster
will render his decision.

Streets Will Be Recommended
by the Committee.
"When a special car. bearing Mayor
I.ane, eight members of the City Council,
President Josselyn and Vice-President
Fuller, of the Portland Railway, Light &
Power Company, reached Irvlngton yes
terday morning at 10 o'clock, the officials
were met by delegations of citizens com
posed of members of the Irvlnston and
Holladay Improvement Associations.
Great rivalry exists between these two
enterprising organizations as to which
shall have the advantage in the changes
that are about to be made by the street
car company In the line that runs
throuch that section of the city. Bach
faction explained the situation from its
point of view, declaring its position the
most tenable. After hearing the argu
ments, the party of municipal officials
nd railway men left the scene to inspect
other districts where the corporation con
templates alterations in its lines.
D. L. Povey, president of the Irving
ton Improvement Association, was pres
ent to lead the forces of that district, and
President J. Wood Smith, of the Holla
day Association, was represented by J. A.
Jaeger. For nearly an hour the two rival
organization's forces argued, implored
and entreated the city and corporation
officials to take a stand as to whether
the car tracks 6hall be changed to run
straight out Broadway to Twenty-first
street, or whether they shall turn at Fif
teenth street and run on Halaey to Twenty-second
street and make a loop out to
the end of the line at Knott street. It
was finally decided that the warring as
sociations must agree to a plan them
selves. Prefer ltoute Out Broadway.
The consensus of opinion of the Coun
cilmen seemed to be that the most feasi
ble proposition from an operating stand
point, as well as in view of other con
siderations, is to run tho double-track
line straight out on Broadway to Twenty
second and thence to Knott. However,
the residents of the two districts seem
unable to agree upon either plan. Presi
dent Josselyn told the people that they
must decide upon a route: that his com
pany is willing to put the tracks any
where to accommodate the public, but
that some plan must be agreed upon.
Permanent Improvements are soon to be
put in throughout the territory, and the
company wishes its tracks down as
quickly as possible.
Many sections of the city were visited
by the party, which Included the Mayor,
Councilmen Annand, Baker, Belding,
Concannon, Kellaher, Rushlight, Vaughn,
Driscoll and Wills. Mr. Josselyn and Mr.
Fuller. The party left Second and Wash
ington streets at 9:30 o'clock in the morn
ing, returning at noon, and after lunch
con resumed the trip of inspection.
View Line to Peninsula.
From lrvlngton. the party rode to North
Albina. to Klllingsworth avenue and Pat
ton, where they inspected the projected
line, which -will run from that point north
to the townsite of the Swift Packing Com
pany, on the Peninsula. Owing to tho de
lay at lrvlngton and The long distance
covered, it was noon when the party
reached Third and Morrison streets.
The party reassambled at the City Hall
at 2 o'clock, and went to view the Kamm
tract, the object being to give the com
mittee on streets an opportunity to ascer
tain the best manner in which to open
streets through this property. This is a
project initiated by Councilman Baker,
the tract being in his ward. It is a large
Inclosed piece of valuable property, and
after investigation, the street committee,
in session on the party's special car, voted
to recommend to the Council the opening
of Main street, from Fourteenth to Chap
man, and Lownsdale, from Morrison to
From viewing the Kamm tract, the
party went to the site of the Lewis and
Clark Fair, via the Union Depot line. A
stop was made to view the celebrated
arch of welcome, which is as yet un
linlshert. The party was met by Superin
tendent Lyons, of the Terminal Company,
who implored the Mayor and Council to
order the arch removed. It is declared by
him to be a nuisance, and he said that it
lteturn to East Side.
The officials then continued the trip,
Mr. Josselyn pointing out certain points
where the company Is operating only on
e, permit, and where it wishes a franchise
Instead. From the fairgrounds, they ran
back down Bumside street and across the
river, where they viewed several East
Bide lines. President Josslyn explained
that the company wishes to abandon the
present tracks on East Tenth, on East
Pine to East Eighteenth street, as he said
the district would be fully served by the
Bast Morrison and East Ankeny-street
The officials also Inspected the Waver-ly-Rii-hmond
lines and it was explained that the corn
puny wishes to make an important change
in the Woodstock line. It is planned to
run cars to Woodstock over the Mount
Tabor line out East Morrison to East
Twenty-sixth, and south on East Twenty
sixth to Powell Valley road, where it
will connect with the present tracks.
There aro about 40 new pieces of tracks
and changes in lines desired by the cor
poration, the. officials of which desire
to secure from the City Council a blanket
franchise. It is a matter of great im
portance, and It was deemed wise to make
a personal inspection of the lines, y

M'DONALD GIVES $500 BAIL
Man Areslcd for Stealing Library
Books Furnishes Cash for Release.
Douglas McDonald, charged with steal
ing books from the Portland Public Li
brary, secured his freedom from the po
lice station late yesterday afternoon by
depositing $500 cash bail. When arrested
McDonald had in his possession $W1.40,
mostly in $5 bills. W ith" the exception of
a bill of a larger denomination, which
rested on top of the "wad," the greeil
backs were apparently issued by the same
bank, although the prisoner declared that
he got them In various cities throughout
the West. The police are of the opinion
that the money in the possession of Mc
Donald was not come by lawfully, and
the man may be held on a more serious
charge, unless he forfeits his bail and
leaves the city.
When arrested by Detective Tennant at
the Appleton rooming-house in the North
End. McDonald had in his possession two
books which he had previously stolen
from the Public Library. The accused
made no denial of his guilt when, upon
being searched In his room, one of the
books was found under his coat. About
six weeks ago. the time of McDonald's
arrival in the city, books of a scientific
nature began to be missed from the li
brary. The 'police were notified and,
daily, detectives were kept on watch at

SURVEYORS NOW IN FIELD
Clatsop Citizens Confident of Ability
to Finance Projected Electric
Line to Tillamook Power
to Come from Isehalem.
Astoria capitalists have put up money
to pay for surveys for the electric line
projected by the Astoria people, the As
toria, Seaside & Tillamook Electric Com
pany. Residents of the country to be
traversed by the line have donated rights-of-way
for almost the entire distance.
During the past week surveyors have
been put in the field and are seeking the
best route for the new line. The propo
sition is in the hands of a promoter to
finance and it is said the new road has
the brightest prospects for becoming a
Construction is easy as far south as
Seaside, it is said, and those behind
the project say the line can be built
for that portion of the distance for
$20,000 a mile. South of Seaside the
country to be crossed is mountainous
and the cost of construction is expect
ed to increase. However, this fact will
not deter the men behind the project
from putting it through, it is said.
An attractive part of the proposition
is said to be the fact that the Nehalem
River, which wlli be crossed by the
line, will be made to furnish electric
power to operate the railroad. It Is
said that a reconnoissance made by the
surveyors for th road has disclosed
an Ideal site for a power dam and that
practically unlimited power may be de

earnest over the project and a few men
in the. city subscribed $10,000 in a few

been long neglected, and they do not
propose 10 wait longer for either the

MXE TO HILLSBORO BEGUX
Work Started on St. Helens County
Road by Inlted Railways.
Work was begun yesterday by the
United Railways Company on its pro
jected line to Hillsboro. Eight cars of
steel rails arrived from the Bast and a
force of workmen was set to work on the
grade at the six-mile post on the St.
Helens road. Fifteen teams and SO men
started in yesterday and it is the . an
nounced purpose of the company to con
tinue the work until an electric line is
built down the St. Helens road to Linnton.
This is promised within the next 90 days!
The steel now on hand will build about
five miles of track. The line to Linnton
will follow the east side of the St Helens
road and construction will be easy and
cheap. The franchise secured for " this
line requires that all crushed rock used
along the road for county purposes shall
be transported free and the fare to Linn
ton shall be Ave cents.
The road to Linn ton is the first link in
the line to Hillsboro, which was projected
some time ago. It le expected Hillsboro
will be reached by October of next year.
J. E. Gardner Is the. engineer in charge of
the work and A. B. Smith is foreman of
the grading gangs.

PORTLAND HTJXT? CLUB IS MAK
ING PREPARATIONS. -
Many More Fine Animals to Be
Seen Than Were Shown in Last
Attention is constantly being called to
the unusual number of high-stepping
thoroughbred pairs and singles on the
Portland streets this Summer, and the
public is gradually waking up to the
fact that quiet preparation is being made
by leading citizens for -the second annual
horse show of the Portland Hunt Club,
which will be, given during October. There
seems a determination on the part of
local fanciers that the big prizes shall be
kept at home this year, and that a show
ing of handsome turnouts, teams and
roadsters shall be made in keeping with
the wealth of the city.
Not merely has local pride been stimu
lated by last year's big event, for a sur
prising number of applications and in
quiries are coming to the Hunt Club of
ficers by every mail, and the entries prom
ise to be exceedingly classy. Eastern
breeders and fanciers will show fine-animals
In every class and Portland's sec
ond horse show promises to go down in
history as an event quite in keeping with
the big Madison Square affairs. The big
opening of the Country Club will attract
many exhibitors, and doubtless many of
these, coming from the East and Middle
West, will include exhibits for the horse
show in their strings and remafci over for
the October event.
The Oriental Building, which was fitted
up for the show at great expense last sea
son, will again be the scene of the Au
tumn event, having proven an ideal place
in which to show fine animlas to great
advantage. President T. S. McGrath and
his committees have already organized a
plan of work which will expedite the
business of this vast undertaking, and
some great surprises are promised the
public this Fall.

BRIDGE IS FINISHED
Steel All in Place on Big Struc
ture Over Willamette.
COST ABOVE $1,000,000
Trains Will Cross by September i
and Perhaps Sooner Dirt to Be
Hauled From Peninsula Cut
to the West Side.
Yesterday saw the practical comple
tion of th Willamette River bridge,
built by the Spokane, Portland & Seat
tle Railway Company below the city.
There are numerous finishing touches
to be -applied, but the structure Us up
and the hammering home of a few
rivets is all that remains to make the
big fabric complete. The last pin in the
framework has been driven, and as soon
as the remaining rivets weld the beams
together, the machinery to swing the
draw will be Installed.
B. F. Crosby, engineer in charge of
the construction of the Columbia River
bridge and mora lately the Willamette
bridge, estimates that a month will be
required to set up the machinery and
complete the other work remaining to
be accomplished before trains are run
over the new structure. Engineer
Crosby sets September 1 as the outside
limit of the completion of the bridge,
although he thinks it possible it may
be finished late in August. As soon
as track Is laid across the bridge, dirt
excavated from the big cut across the
Peninsula will be hauled across the
Willamette and used to fill in the low
lands at the west end of the bridge,
which will be crossed by the Spokane,
Portland & Seattle tracks. Track is
now being laid across the Peninsula
between the two bridges.
The bridge Just being finished across
the Willamette is the heaviest and most
expensive structure ever thrown across
this river. Its cost will be somewhat
over $1,000,000. The total length of
the bridge is 1,762 feet 3 Inches. The
large drawspan, 621 feet from eenter
to center of end pins, is the longest in
the world. On each side of the draw
span are two fixed spans approximat
ing 269 feet, center to center of piers,
making four fixed spans In all. On
each end of the bridge is an 80-foot
deckplate girder approach span.
The east abutment. Pier A, and the
west abutment are founded on piles.
The foundations of piers 1 to 5, inclu
sive, were sunk by the pneumatic proc
ess, and were landed on either rock
or gravel at a depth varying from 42
feet to 88.2 feet below low water.
The large proportions of the two
steel bridges across the Columbia and
Willamette Rivers will be better real
ized from the quantities of matertals
used in their construction. The figures
of the engineers are as follows: Ce
ment, 76.000 barrels; timber in founda
tions, 6.927,000 feet, board measure;
piling, 296,840 lineal feet; granite ma

Demented Girl Shoots Father.
NEW YORK. July 16. Eighteen-year-old
Sarah Comiskey created a lot of excite
ment opposite police headquarters at New
Rochelle, last night by firing several shots
at her father, Sarman Comiskey.
When the girl came from New
York last night Comiskey was
warned. He went directly to the police
station to ask protection. As he left the
station he met his daughter, who fol
lowed him. She drew a revolver and
opened fire. She wounded Comiskey
slightly in the head. The girl was locked
up. She said she was emulating Sarah
