Sladame Hsu is as comely and dainO a
little Chinese woman as one could wisn
to see A suite had already been re
served for the party at the Oregon
Hotel. Madame Hsu was driven there
at (p but Consul-General Hsu Ping
Chen and his son were driven to the
headquarters of Jung Wah Company,
commonly known as the Chinese Six
Companies, at 6K, Second street, where
they" were entertained with tea and
cigars in the most hospitable fashion.'
, He Is a Mandarin.
Hsu Ping-Chen is a Chinese of high
rank, with the title of mandarin, and he
is one of the most distinguished members
of. the Chinese Progressive party, of
wnlch the present regent of the Chinese
throne. Prince Chlng. is the highest rep
resentative. Hsu Ping-Chen is a per
sonal friend of both Prince Chlng and
Minister Va. and his appointment to the
high position of Consul-General at San
Francisco 13 months ago was in recogni
tion of the distinguished services he had
rendered his country In various political
and diplomatic lines.
Hsu Ping-Chen readily consented to be
Interviewed by a reporter from The Ore
gonlan. As the distinguished visitor,
however, ia unable to talk English, his
son acted as Interpreter for him. turning
the questions asked into Chinese and
then rendering his father's answers in
"I am on my way to the' Seattle Ex
position, where I shall remain three or
four days." said the Consul-General
through his son. "I am very glad of the
opportunity to be able to visit the Port
land Chlneser and this city, which I like
ery much. The scenery coming up from
San Francisco was lovely. It was fhe
first time 1 had seen the cpuntry. I en
Joyed it very much."
When he was asked how he liked the
American people. Hsu Ping-Chen waited
until his son had translated the question
to him. then he answered instantly in
broad English and with a smile to show
that he was pleased. "Very much!" "The
Chinese people consider the United States
as China's best friend." lie added through
the Interpreter. "The United States haj
done much for China."
"China." he continued, "is Just begin

of the greatest nations of the eaTth."

Askeoi what he thought of the future
of trade relations between the United

"China and America will always be

all the people of the world will be like
brothers. China and America especially."
Hsu Ptng-Chen is about 40 'years -of

Hsu Ping-Chen is keenly Interested in
everything connected with industrial de
velopment, and his progressive tenden
cies cannot be better illustrated than by
the fact that he follows closely every
new step in electrical engineering. At
his own request, he will be taken tomor
row on a trip to Oregon City or Caia
dcro to view the big power plants of the
Portland. Railway. Light & Power Com
pany at those places. He is such a close
student of American conditions, and
especially those in Portland and on the
Pacific Coast, that he had planned this
side trip even before he left San Fran
cisco. It Is his close attention to details
such as this, which he can make use
of in the development of his own country,
that has bad much to do with raising
him to his present high poIltTca! position.
The American youth of IS who could
discus political questions and topics of

standingly as can Chi T. Hsu. his son.
would be regarded as a prodigy, indeed.
Fifteen months ago when he landed in
San Francisco, young Hsu did not know
a word of English, and American man
ners and customs were strange to him.
Now he dresses with taste, his manners
are polished, and he can talk knowingly
: on almost any subject. He attends the
University of California regularly, and
ha- just come from at private Summer
school where he hae been supplementing
the regular university training during

OLD SPAN WRECKED
Madison Bridge in Six Weeks
Will Be Only Memory.
TIMBERS ARE VERY WEAK
Contractor Expresses AVonder That
Structure Did Xot Crash Down
With Heavy Load Begin
on New Viaduct Soon.
In another six weeks the old wooden
structure ot the pioneer Madison-street
bridge will be reduced to cordwood and
memories. The memories are likely to
, unnh mnm than the cordwood Is, for
Rohert Wakefield, of the contracting
firm of Wakefield & Jacobson. which in
tearing down fhe superstructure, said
that his men have struck some pretty
rotten timbers in the process of dis
mantling the ancient pile.
"It's Just as well that they decided to
tear down the bridge when they did," said
Mr. Wakefield yesterday. "Some of those
sticks we have pulled out of it are rotten
and punk clear through. Is it a wonder
the bridge didn't tumble down with a
lot of people? Well I should say so."
The contractors have progressed bo rap
idly in their work that the span at the
east end of the bridge Is already down,
and the last timber on the span next to
H on the west will be torn out today. By
the middle of next week the workmen
will be ready to tackle the draw pier,
andthey will make the splinters fly.
False work has been placed under each,
of the six spans, and with the aid of a
derrick scow and a donkey engine on the
bridge deck, the timbers are lifted out
of the framework of the spans by piece
meal and lowered into the river, where
they are gathered in rafts. Twenty-five
rmn are now on the Job, and more are
being added every day.
This part of the dismantling will be
completed in a month, and then the con
tractors wll get busy on the draw rest
and the piers Each piling in the draw
rest has to be pulled out with a derrick
or sawed off far enough below the sur
face so that it will . never become a
menace to shipping This part of the work
will not be an easy task by any means.
Wakefield ' & Jacobsen will also remove
the old piers, and they have the contract
for putting In the piers for the new
bridge They expect to be ready to begin
on the constructive end of their contract
within two months.
The United Engineering & Contractus
Comoany. of which Drake C. O'Reilly is
the local head, has the contract for fur
nishing and erecting the Structural steel
for the new bridge. The spans will be
built on a different principle than has
been used in any of the other bridges
here. Each span will oe execiea conipieio
on shore and then carrlSi on bcows to
Its position in the bridge. In this way
it is believed much time can be saved.
HANGS HIMSELF IN JAIL
Charles Ashley Is Rescued and Put
In Padded Cell.
Despondent over his confinement,
Charles Ashley, 49 years old. a prisoner
In the County Jail, awaiting trial for for
gery, attempted suicide last night by
hanging. He was discovered by other
prisoners, who rescued him and caikd
Jailer Hunter, who removed the man to
a padded oell.
Ashley was confined in corridor 2. For
the past two or three days he had re
fused to eat anything and became very
morose. The Jailer thought he, was ill
and Saturday called in the County Phy
sician. An examination of the man, how
ever, failed to reveal illness. Last night
Ashley had not been seen by the others
in this corridor for five or ten minutes
prior to his rash deed, and one of them
went to look for him. He was found
behind a steel door at the end of the cor
ridor hanging by a rope improvised from
pieces of blanket which he had torn from
his bunk. Several ugly bruises and
gashes on his head indicated that, before
trying to hang himself, he had butted his
head against the sfeel bars in an unsuc
cessful attempt to end his life.
Ashley was arrested on July 1 by De
tectives Tichnor and Howell for forging
a small check on Mrs. E. E. Hummell.

Joseph Kellogg carrying alt excursion of

night as the steamer pulled into her
dock at the foot of Salmon street. Ser

previously taken into custody by Mate
James Thompson, for assaulting him was
As the steamer passed through the
draw of the Morrison-street bridge the
tumult of a fight and the screams of
women alarmed the police within hearing
distance. Sergeant-Keller, who was on the
bridge 'heard the rumpus and telephoned
the alarm to the police station. When
the police arrived no one semed willing
to identify the alleged belligerents and
the patrolmen arrested only Hansen of
whom Mate Thompson complained. Han
sen is said to be the driver of a brewery
wagon. He was released on $25 cash bail.
Business Streets All Paved.
AliLBANT, Or., Aug. ,1. (Special.) The
etreet-pavlng crew last night completed
the paving of Second -street from Lyon
to Ferry streets and practically all of the
thoroughfares through the leading busi
ness section of the city are now paved.
STUDY PAVING LIS
City Officials Seek Means of
Breaking Up Combine. .
VOTE MAY BE NECESSARY
If Competitive Bids Are Impossible
Under Charter, Mayor Will Cafl
Special Election to Enact
Every prooerty-ownei' in Portland Is
keenly interested in Mayor Simon s de
termination to disorganiZe the paving
trust, which, for many years has had
this city so securely in its grasp.
Whether this monopoly can be effectively
combated without resorting to extreme
measures, viz.: Amending the city char
ter or establishing a municipal plant, is a
problem which is receiving the considera
tion of Mayor Simon and the members
of his cabinet.- ...
The subject has been referred for care
ful examination by the Mayor to Henry
Ladd Corbett and Robert Treat Piatt,
members ot his Executive Board. Mr.
Piatt said yesterday that he had not com
pleted an inquiry into the provisions of
. , . . i . fnr thai reason had
I me ciiy i im. v-.- - .
i-not reached a decision as to what would
be- necessary to intercept ;unU.
operations .of the combine. Vhile he
would not say so, Mr. Piatt intimated
that he might be able to submit a report
of his Investigations at the next meeting
of the Executive Board. Mr. Piatt said
he had not gone far enough into the
question' to satisfy himself that the city
could modify the present procedure for
making street improvements without
changing the charter.,
City's Hands Perhaps Tied.
It is the contention of the representa
tive of the paving trust that the city is
powerless to proceed otherwise in mak
ing street improvements until the char
ter requires that when a street is ordered
Improved the specification on which bids
are invited shall specify the character
of the improvement to be made. In the
operation of this section of the charter,
the companies representing the. different
kinds of paving get in their work.
These interests are alleged to have an
understanding by which the territory of
the city is quite equally divided and are
fortified further by the fact that com
petitive bidding on these improvements
is eliminated. All'of these circumstances
work out in the interest of those in on
the combination, with the result that the
people of OPortland are paying excessiv-s
prices for street paving when the cost
for the same work In other Pacific Coast
cities is compared
Mayor Simon is inclined to the opinion
that the charter contains a provision un
der wnicn open Diaaing iur ewucv im
provements may be conducted. It Is for
a determination of this question that the
matter has been referred to Messrs. Cor
bett and Piatt, of the Executive Board.
Election May Be Necessary.
The Mayor has repeatedly declared that
he will obtain for the property-owners of
this city cheaper street improvements.
Ha is ready to accomplish that result
even if it becomes necessary to hold a
special election to amend the charter if
It is found that the ordinances on the
subject have- to be revised. In addition
to calling a special election, however, he
has two alternatives. As the city's ex
ecutive officer he can, through his ad
visory board, suspend all street Improve
ment work when the bids are regarded
excessive, or he can install a municipal
plant by which these improvements can
be made at actual cost to property-owners.
The Mayor is satmfled that in the
operation of a municipal plant a savins
In the charge for asphalt paving, for
which the property-owners are now re
quired to pay 2-2S a square yard, can
The installation of a municipal plant,
however, will be only entertained as a
final resort. Mayor Simon Insists that
street-paving in Portland should not cost
more than in Seattle, and it is on .that
theory he is demanding relief at the
hands of the pavmg companies. Repre
sentatives of some of these companies
have assured the Mayor that they will
reduce their Mils for future contracts.
If the representatives of the combine
make good and reduce their charges to
the satisfaction of Mayor Simon, the re
sult will have been acccomplished. If.
on the ' other hand, those in on the com
bination fail to make good, the Mayor
gives- every assurance that he will tako
such stop as may be necessary to bring
these contractors to time.
