12 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 road Company. 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 street. Mr. Wittenberg's address was in part as follows: 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. CONDENSED NEWS BY WIRE Pekin.

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 corporations. - C.

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.
