be started within the next few days
by engineers of the Harrlman railroads
to determine the character of founda
tions they will have to deal with in
constructing the new Steel bridge. It
is expected Miat work will be com
menced on the new structure within,
the next few month?, as noon as the
boring and other preliminary work is
John D. Isaacs. eonsultinK engineer
for the Harrlman system, with offices
at Cliicasro. has heen In conference with
the IochI engineers on biiilpe matters
here and left last riicht in his private
car for California, whence he will re
turn to Chicago. Mr. Isaacs expects
to return to Portland in Alay or June.
"The character of the bridne to he
built will depend of course on several
things." paid Mr. Isaacs before leav
ing the city yesterday. "Amonjr them
is the character of foundations we find
in borlnc In the river bed. The en
gineers in charce here are fully ca
pable of determining the character of
structure needed and of erecting it.
Bridge Is Hard Problem.
"The fact that the bridge Is used
both by the general public In streetcar,
team and foot traffic, und by the rail
roads, makes a somewhat difficult
problem, for it seems to me very de
sirable that the public traffic, being on
the upper deck, should he disturbed
just as little as possible because of in
terruptions to the railroads, which are
on a lower ler-el and must necessarily
tie blocked whenever a boat of any
size at nil passes through the bridge.
If a bridge were built that had two
draw spans so that the general public
w'ould be delayed in crossing only oc
casionally, I think It would be a great
If I were to decide the type of bridge
to be used, I believe I should choose
the double bascule type proposed. I
think, by Mr. Swigert. This scheme
Is for two bridges, one alongside Vie
other on the same piers, the railroad
bridge near the water on the required
level of the tracks on both sides of the
river, and the deck for public travel
high above the water level. If other
conditions yet to be determined favor
the erection of this type of structure.
I would favor It as against any other.
"I worked out a plan of my own for
replacing the Steel bridge that consist
ed of a combination cantilever and bas
cule draw span for the tipper bridge
and a swinging span for the lower.
But this. I have found, is not rigid
enough to bear the stress and strain
that would be put upon it In operation
and I think the other plan is better.
Ba.senles More Kxpenslve.
Bascule bridges are. of course, more
expensive flian the other type. First
they are more costly to build than the
swinging type, and there is a royalty
on the various kinds of bascule bridges
to be paid to the patentees. .
'I hope the borings in the river bot
tom will slow a stratum of cement
gravel at a reasonable depth for foun
dations. There are evidences of this,
as we hdve found on the river banks
In driving piling and we expect to find
it under the river. If we do, we can
safelv anchor the piers for the bridgi"."
Statistics kept by the Harrlman of
ficials show that the Steel bridge Is
opened about 100 times a day. while
train movements across the structure
do not number more than 40 during
the day. It will be seen that if the
double bridge were built, the draw
pan of the railroad bridge could be
left open much of the time and smaller
boats could pass up and down the river
without interfering with the upper deck
of the bridge at all. The number of
times of opening the bridge could be
materially cut down by means of the

sage received here yesterday by Manager
Tnm Richardson, of the Commercial
Club, from I. A. Kadeau, director-general
of the Seattle fair. Mr. Nadeau
writes that the matter is one in which
the Seattle fair management will be glad
to co-operate. He says it is of the great
est importance, not only to the expo
sition, bat also to the entire community
that the Portland gateway be opened at
least on the hasis that passengers from
the East to the Sound may be ticketed

changing their tickets and rechecking
An instance of the annoyance to travel
ers of the closed Portland gateway was
afforded here no later than yesterday,
when EX P. Blake, of Seattle, manager
of the Washington Logging Brokerage
Company, and president of the Pacific
Coast Ixgg!ng Congress, reached the city
on his way Kast. He had business here
that forced him to stop in Portland for
a day, but was refused a through ticket
only as far as Portland and was told
that here he" would have to recheck his
baggage and get another ticket for the
remainder of the Journey.
Mr. Blake had a friend who Intended
going East at the same time, but when
he learned of the inconvenience he would
be put to here, he changed his routing
and did not come through Portland.

Undertaking of. Club.
BY W. J. PETRAIN.
Every member of the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club is reminded that
his attendance, is desired at tbe annual
meeting of the club which will be held
in the gymnasium tonight." IFrom
among the following names placed, in
nomination by the regularly delegated
committee, five are to be chosen trus
tees of the club for the ensuing two
years: Edgar E. Fratik. Frank E.
Watkins. Charles E. McDonnell, Clifton

I Norden, A. II. Allen, F. A. Harmer,
Walter B. Honeyman, George Dekum,
George W. Gammie, T. H. Edwards,
J. H. McKenzie, W. B. Streeter and
Howard F. Gaylord. All the candi
dates are splendidly qualified to serve
the club in any official capacity and
the members will find it a difficult
task to pick out five of them as more
suitable for the positions than the ten
they will have to reject. The campaign
is being made in a mild way. and the
candidates having the greatest personal
following are likely to be the 'ones se
lected. However, the election "of officers is
not to be the most Important item to
come before the meeting of the club

club is also at stake, for in a measure,
the proposed purchase of the King

reason why this property should be

prevailing at the club.

While this is not of Itself a suf
ficient argument to Insure the assertion-'
that the ground 13 needed, It is
made stronger by the statement that
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club,
which is the only purely athletic club
of any prominence in American ama
teur athletic circles, requires more
room to successfully carry on the grand
work it has set out to accomplish
that of educating and Increasing the
healthful athletic tendencies of the
As an example of the lack of ac
commodations several hundred mem
bers of the club and their friends were
turned away from the doors on the
night that the young boys' and girls'
classes rendered their famous drill only
a few weeks ago. At this time, many
anxious parents, who desired to see
their young ones perform in the many
pretty and intricate drills formulated
by Professor Robert Krohn, went
away disappointed, and some of them
to this day do not realize what a great
good the club and its instructor have
done their children.
With increased facilities the club will
eventually be able to erect a larger and
amply commodious clubhouse where all
exercises or athletic programmes ar
ranged for can be conducted without
the slightest fear of being unable toi
accommodate the visitors. In that
event it will also be possible to turn
over the present quarters of the club
to the juniors and the ladies' annex,
the classes of each of these being
badly crowded for room and time at
Xonathletic Element Active.
There are some few members of the
club who are Industriously' lobbying
against the purchase of this additional
property who are very poor contributors
to the good of the club cn their own
account. These men seem to think
that the money likely to be spent for
the acquisition of the much-needed
additional, acreage should be expend
ed for new and elaborate furnishings.
In arguing this way these men do not
take into consideration that the Mult
nomah Amateur Athletic Club ,1s In
corporated as an athletic institution
and not as an Institution which does
nothing but foster card-playing and so
The Multnomah Club has made a rec
ord of which it may well be proud, for
there Is no other single institution in the
t'nited States which had made it an
object to develop athletic young boys, and
the men who are responsible for formu
lating the plan to add to the club's fa
cilities have as their object the Increas
ing of this work of providing the oppor
tunity for the young boys and girls. With
such a magnificent stadium as would be
acquired by the joining of the present
grounds with that of the remainder of
the natural amphitheater which com
prises Multnomah Field, the boys and
youths from all over Portland would have
plenty of room on which to hold their
games, either together or separately as
may be desired. It would also Insure
the club of an additional nucleus of
youthful athletes who cannot be acquired
otherwise. Boys will always remember
any person or organization affording
them an opportunity of embracing some
cherished ambition, and it is the same
boys of today who will maintain the
Multnomah Club In years to come.

Kenilworth Improvement Associa
tion Goes Into Question of Bet- v
ter Supply of Water.
The Kenilworth Improvement Associa
tion, R. D. Merchant presiding, consid
ered the matter of an extra water main
for the territory south of Divislo street
at its meeting last night. Dr. C H.
Raffety. member of the Water Board,
set forth, what he considered the best
plan, to supply the district. This com
prises a system that will supply 10.000.000
gallons of water a day and will furnish
the Mount Scott, Woodstock, Kenilworth,
Midway and Sellwood districts.
He proposes that a 24-Inch main be
laid from the upper Mount Tabor reser
voir to the Powell Valley road. From
that point a 12-inch pipe line will supply
the Mount Scott district and a 20-inch
main is to be extended southwest for a
certain distance, when it is reduced to
a 16-inch main to Holgate and Mllwaukle
streets. From this point to and through
Sellwood a 12-Inch main is to be laid.
The cost is as follows: 24-inch main,
$26,200; 20-inch main, $20,000; 16-inch main,
$23,000; 12-Inch for the Sellwood exten
sion, $18,500: total, $90,00. These figures,
he said, wre not exact, but were ap
proximately correct, and would supply
the district for many years. Dr. Raf
fety said that under the present charter
such a system of pipe line would be paid
for by assessing the districts benefited,
but thought the cost per lot would be
There was extended discussion of the
method of laying water mains. A senti
ment arose in favor of the old method,
or at least a change from the present
plan. It was decided to refer this big
pipe-line project to the new federation
of clubs in the Seventh ward, as the
whole ward Is interested in it.
A committee was appointed to ascer
tain the price of lots 1 and 2, block 9,
in Kenilworth, and submit a report to
the committee on ways and means of
the Council for the site of a fire engine
house. Also a committee was appointed
to ask the Council to proceed with the
Improvement of Powell street to East
Twenty-sixth street and to have a. con
crete sidewalk built around the Clinton

to keep the bridge in commission while
