THE MORNING OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY. MAY 12, 1D09.
NEW SITE OPPOSED
Reasons Given Against Bridge
at Oregon Street.
HARBOR MIGHT BE HURT
Herman Wittenberg and Captain
Spencer Speak Agaln&t Change In.
Location of Span for Rail
That the piesent location of the steel
bridge if superior to any cite that could
bo selected farther south, was the opinion
expressed by Herman Wittenberg in his
ddresn before the Steel Bridge Push
Club. Monday night. Mr. Wittenberg de
flared that if the railroad company
should conclude to build its bridge at
Oregon street, there would be but 1400
feet between the two structures, which
would prove a hindrance to vessels dock
in in that vicinity. Furthermore, lie be
lieved the citizens of Portland would de
cline to join with thv railroad company
In bulMinsr a bridge or to be led into a
combination that would oblige the city to
stand most of the cost of such a struc
ture., Captain C. R. Spencer also spoke
against building the bridge at Oregon
Mr. Wittenberg's address was in part
I do not know that my Ideas will be in
harmony with those of the 'members of
tlit-a club, but I am of th opinion that the
location of the present Steel bridge is su
perior to any location that could be selected
farther south. StllL I believe the railroad
company will bulla Its bridge wherever it
determines to build it, regardless of the
rlfhU of the people. It is looking after Its
own interests, and claims it can build the
bridge as cheaply at Oregon street and not
b compelled to purchase property, which
It would have to do In case it should re
build at the present site. I have been tnv
formed the. company made some efforts to
buy tha property to enable it to make the
turn on to the bridge from the north at
the present location, but the price waa not
satisfactory. Now. that is the company's
side of the case, and It Is sjoing to be very
difficult to overcome.
. , Appeal to War Department.
The only point, in my estimation. Is to
show to the War Department that the in
Jury to the harbor would be considerable.
But that is something to be decided by
navigators, and as Captain Spencer is here
tonight, he can give you better information
concerning that point than I can. It would
b leaving only 1400 feet between bridges, if !
the-new bridge were constructed at Oregon ;
treet.' and I think It would be a very eeri
oup inconvenience to the people on the
water.. Captain Spencer can probably tell
you whether a boat would have room to
turn between a bridge at Oregon street and
the Burnside bridge. I
I do not want to come down here to make ;
any misrepresentations, but so far as the
citlsens of the East and the Northeast
Sides are concerned. T feel that the - bridge
should be kept in its present location. In
case the new bridge is located at the pVes
ent location and should be but 50 feet wide
for pedestrians, and streetcars and teams,
it would be Insufficient, however, as the
bridge should be 45 feet wide in the clear,
with room for two walks, and tracks and
roadway for vehicles to pass. In my opin
ion Morrison bridge has the best arrange
ment for handling the traffic, with road
ways on the s1dsf and double trackage for
cars In the middle.
If a new bridge of Insufficient width la
contemplated, the Mayor and the Council
should be Informed of the situation, and lr
such speciilcrftions are out showing that to
be the case, then actfon should be taken
to amend them, and It would be well to
appoint a committee to look into the width
of the bridge to ascertain If such a bridge
is under contemplation.
Furthermore, I am sure the citizens will
not care to join with the railroad com
pany In building a bridge, and I am snr
the people of Portland will not permit
themselves to bo ld into a combination
whrrebv they may be compelled to build
most of the bridge. The railroad company
has the right to build a bridge, and the
city has a rlaht to demand that It build a
bridge for the accommodation of street
cars, pedestrians and vehicles. I know Mr.
Kwcigcrt has advocated the building of a
bridge in connection with the city, but he
has not met with any success, and I have
neen it presented to the Commercial Club,
and It has everywhere met with objections.
I am sure the Harriman lines will have to
build their own bridge.
As for the harbor. I believe the present
lm-atlon of the bridge la the best for the
harbor and everyone else; except, possiffiy.
the railroad company.
Vlcsw or Captain Spenocr.
nptaln ?pencer spoke as follows:
A high bridge Is the character of bridge
most acceptable to all, an the greater por
tion of river traffic would be able to pass
mder without Interruption : the present
istl bridge is worn out. So far as I am
concerned I am a rlverman and would like
to aee no bridges at all. but we have to
have them. The East Sida will be the future
iHv, as we have more people on the Kast
SKlV than on the West Side now. and it
won't be long until we have two-thirds of
the people, and it will be the same as Man
bflttan. and we don't want to be held up
coming over here. But, if we did not have
a river wc would not have a city here; it
Is our river and harbor that bring the
people to Portland. AVe have the only fresh
water harbor on the Pacific Coast, and you
want to take all of that into consideration.
1 have been a navigator on the Willam
ette and Columbia Rivers for over 3 years.
art1 I would not like to see any bridges
built between the present Steel bridge and
the Burnside bridge, for the reason that if
you take a commercial ahip up there and
"turn her around and start down the river
with her. with a six or seven-mile current,
an often occurs here, yon do not get much
control -of her until you get to Swan Island,
and if jou don't you are liable to have
trouble. T do not want to startle ou. hut
it will not be long until the city of Port
land will buv up the encroaching docks and
dig the river out for a harbor. They have
to do It. as they have not the room, for
at the narrowest place the river is only
ro feet between dooks. A far as steam
boats are concerned, we, can take them
everywhere, but these large grain vossels.
acme of them being 500 feet long if you
take one of those, ships up there it would
be far more' difficult to pass through the
proposed new bridge than It would be to
F9 through the old bridge, because It
would not have sufficient room to maneuver,
and the harbor would be decidedly injured.
Captain Spencer then proposed, in case
the new bridge is bum at uregon street
that the city buy the old piers
of the present Steel bridge, and
construct a high bridge at that point,
which In that vsy could be done at an
expense of not to exceed $2rMXX. Mr.
Cirondahl'e plan of a double draw bridere
was discussed, and it was considered an
excellent solution of the problem, in the
event It should be shown to be practical.

STOCKTON, Cal., May 11. The fkking
of testimony in the trial of Councilman
W. T. Shepard, of this city, accused by
the grand jury of malfeasance in office,
began before a jury in the Superior
Court this morning; Judgre Smith pre
siding. District Attorney McNoble said
he would prove that the accused had
used his official position to extort loans
from various saloon men and corpora
tion heads by the use of threats of ad
verse action upon matters of interest
to them pending before the Council; and
that the accused had formed a bogus
corporation and sold valueless shares at
$100 each to saloonmen and heads of
C. D. Clarke, manager of the Cali

It was also brought out that when
Clarke purchased of Shepard a share
of stock in the " Todman Paint Com
pany he regarded Shepard as taking
advantage of his official position as
Councilman, Clarke's company being; a
petitioner. The stock, however, Clarke
declared to be his own and not the
company's, the signing of the company's
name and affixing his under it as man
ager being done by inadvertence.

Had Sixty Boils when but Six Months
Old Was Annually Attacked by
a Humor It Looked Red Like a
Scald and Spread Over Half Her
Head Both Troubles are Cured,
NO PRAISE TOO HIGH FOR
THE CUTICURA REMEDIES
"When my little Vivian was aoout
six months old, her papa had a boll on
that time the child
was covered with
prickly heat and I
suppose in scratch
ing it, her own head
became infected for
it broke out in boils,
one after another.
She had about sixty
ail and l used
Cuticura Soap and
fy S t (Juticura Ointment
1 -which cured her of
tnem entirely, men,
sometime later, her little foot got sore
between the toes. Being afraid it was
salt rheum, I spoke to our doctor. He
gave me a powder which dried it up,
but soon after it broke out behind her
ears. They cracked half way around
and the humor spread up on to her head
until, on several occasions, it was nearly
half covered. The humor looked like a
scald, very red with a sticky, clear fluid
coming from it. This occurred every
year. I think it was toward the spring.
I always bathed it with warm water and
Cuticura Soap and applied Cuticura
Ointment which never failed to heal it
up. The last time it broke out was
when she was Six years old. It became
bo bad that I was discouraged. Then
I procured a bottle of Cuticura Resolv
ent which soon cleared it out of her
blood. I continued the use of Cuticura
Soap and Ointment with the Resolvent
until she was perfectly well. She is now
about eight years old and has never
been troubled in the last two years.
We also find Cuticura Resolvent a good
spring medicine and we are just giving
the children Cuticura Resolvent Pills
as a tonic. We do not think any one can
praise Cuticura Remedies too highly.
