PLAN FOR BRIDGE
Franchise for New Railroad
Given 0. R. & N. .
REVENUE FROM DECK FIXED
Road to Got 5 Per Cent Per Annum
on Cost of Construction and
Ufe of Span Is Fixed at C0
Years Fine Structure.
The Port of Portland Commission yes
terday afternoon passed by unanimous
vote the franchise granting to the O. R.
& X. Company the right to construct a
steel bridge, and fixed the compensation
to be derived by the railway corporation
for the upper deck at not more than 5
per cent per annum on the cost of con
struction nf the deck, and the life of the
span at 20" years. As soon as the War
Department passes on the plans. Chief
Engineer Boschke will begin actual oper
ations. The new bridge will cross the 'Wil
lamette River, the east end resting on or
near Oregon and Adams, converging
streets, and at Third and Glisan streets
on the west. It will cost between $1,500,
000 and 12. 000.000. and will accommodate
streetcar, team and pedestrian traffic on
an upper deck, which is expected to be
one of the beet ever built. The bridge
will be of the lift-draw type, such as the
new Madison-street span, now in course
of construction, and will be designed to
stand the terrific strains that will be
put upon It for the next 20 years and
possibly ioner. The lift will be built to
rise to a height of 161 feet above xero
of the Government gauge, and will enable
all vessels with the exception of the
largest slxed sailing ships, to pass through
without being lifted.
In order to rush the bridge to comple
tion, the Port of Portland Commission
met In special session yesterday after
noon. President Swigert In the chair J.
Couch Flanders, counsel for the Com
mission, and Arthur G. Spencer, for the
Harrlman Interests, handled the legal
points, and Chief Engineer Boschke was
present to represent the engineering end
for the O. R. & N.
Lawyer Spencer and Chief Engineer
Buschke at first held out for a con
cession on the part of the commission,
declaring that the railroad company
should be allowed to assess tolls to the
extent of per cent per annunV on the
amount of the cost of the upper deck, but
later decided to accept a compromise.
Commissioner Ainsworth and others con
tending that 4 per cent would be suffi
cient revenue on a 20-year basis. It
was therefore a compromise all around,
with every one satisfied.
In regard to the ofticlal life of the
bridge, the company made its point. Tins
commissioners had decided that perhaps
40 years would not be too Ions, but the
railway representatives declared that it
would not do to fix Its life at such a
long term of years, and the commission
ers finally mai'e it 20 years.
The company has the privilege of rent-
inR the upper deck to the city or county
at the rate of revenue stated.
Chief Engineer Boschke declared to
the commissioners that he will build a
bridge that will be a credit to the city,
as well as to his company. He thanked
the commission for its promptness in
handling its part of the project, and as
sured the members that actual construc
tion will be commenced Just as soon as
the War Department passes on the plans.

VILLA AVENUE TO BE WIDE
Street of 0 Feet Practically As
sured Through Laurelhurst.
Assurances are given that Villa avenue
' will be m ft X set wide from tha cast
line of Laurelhurst to the city limits In
Montavllla; also that this street will be
made SO feet wide through Laurelhurst.
Plans for widening Villa avenue are in
two parts the first running from Laurel
hurst to West avenue and the other from
West avenue to the city limits. Through
the Laurelhurst Addition the street has
been made 80 feet wide by the new own
ers. Success of the proceedings to make
the street 80 feet wide beyond Laurel
hurst depended on the width of the street
through the addition. This being assured,
there Is thought to be little doubt about
the further widening.
The two sets of viewers are about
ready to submit their final reports, ac
cording to H. B. Dickinson, who is look
ing after the matter for the Montavllla
Board of Trade, and he says it means
an 80-foot street.
On the filing of these reports the farm
ers east of Montavilla will proceed at
once with the opening -of the street to
Fairview a distance of about five miles
from the city boundary line. They have
been ready to go ahead for the past two
years whenever they had assurances that
the street would be opened through the
Ladd farm.. Petitions will be circulated
asking the County Court to . open the
road, as that district Is outside the city.
There Is some difference of opinion
among the farmers as to whether to
make the road 80 or 80 feet wide, but
that matter will probably be adjusted.
One farmer has built concrete posts In
front of his property, and if the road is
made 80 feet wide it would mean that his
Improvement would be destroyed. This
movement for a wide street has dragged
along for two years, but now is about to
reach a successful end.
TWO BILLS ARE VETOED
MAYOR SIMON EXERCISES FIRST
RIGHT TO OPPOSE.
Claim for Interest and Policeman's
Request for Atiorney's Fees
Mayor Simon yeBterday vetoed two
ordinances, each of which carries an
appropriation for payment to an indi
vidual out of the public funds. These
are the first measures to meet the seri
ous objection of the executive since he
assumed the duties of Mayor. One of
the ordinances Is in favor of W. H.
Morehouse for $798, an the other is In
favor of W. H. Hyde, a patrolman in
the police department, for $100 attor
ney's fees. The Mayor is opposed to
both on the ground that the city ia not
legally or morally bound to pay them.
The veto messages will create some
thing of a stir in the City Council, as
they are quite different from those
handed down by ex-Mayor Lane. Mayor
Simon furnishes his own legal authori
ties, and his message plainly bear the
stamp of a legal mind, typical of a
lawyer who once served on the judi
ciary committee of the United States
Senate. . .

ONE LONELY VOICE RAISED
FOR MALIGNED TARIFF BILL
William E. Curtis, Famous Journalist, Says Measure Is Best Country Has
Had Since Civil War, and Shows Great Elasticity.
BY ARTHUR A. GREENE.
w VOICE! crying in "the wilderness; a
solitary voice of glad acclaim is
m this, raised in a wilderness of
moans and groans and anathemas. The
voice, the lonely voice and the one glad
hand have been heard and seen at last.

One man in the land, aside from the
Congressional conferees, thinks the new
tariff bill is a good thing and altogether
lovely. At the Portland Hotel yesterday,
where ho aboded for the .time being. Mr.
Curtis, one of the world's foremost Jour
nalists and one of the few men to whom
the term may be applied properly, said
to this particular recorder of things as
they now are:
"The recently enacted tariff bill is the
best the country has had since the Civil
War. In fact it Is the most scientifically
constructed measure of its kind we have
ever had. Whenever a proposal to alter
the tariff is made and Congress attempts
to adjust an equitable schedule, every in
terest affected Inaugurates a fight for its
own. It not only seeks Its own advantage
but It antagonizes every other and strives
to create a commotion which will deceive
the public. The public is usually only too
ready to think the worst and as a conse
quence we have not only two score war
ring states but 'a hundred paltry villages,'
each with its particular purpose to serve,
who raise the hue and cry. It is no
more wrong for a Congressman who rep
resents a lumber constituency to work
for the lumber interests than for one who
represents a wool-growing community to
ficht for his own. It Is no harm for a
Congressman to voice the needs of his
district and to vote for its needs. These
contending elements create a false im
pression in the minds of the public at
large, said public sometimes being pre
disposed to the opinion that It is being
wrongfully dealt with.
"After the smoke has blown away and
the sound of battle is no more, you will
find that this will be the most beneficent
tariff law we have had In 50 years. It is
admirably adjusted to the industrial and
financial interests of the country and it
has an elasticity that permits of its be
ing applied to all needs.
"This is a protective Nation, as is every
country of Europe save England, and
every one of those nations has a higher
protective tariff than we have. Our new
tariff is probably the lowest of any Gov
ernment that subscribes to the policy of
"No man. woman or child in this coun

"There is no place in the world where
the actual necessitiesof life are so cheap
as In the Vnlted States, except farm
products. The only things that .people
buy nowadays that cost more than they
did 10 years ago are the products the
farmers raise. Railroad fares, streetcar

Through long years of experience in the

A little more of the frost of the years
has gathered upon his brow since he was
last here. He Is no longer young and
Is perhaps grown conservative with the
years. That may have in part some
accounting for his unique views on the
Aldrich tariff. But his enthusiasm for

Beware of Deadly
Uric Acid Poison.
When There Is Uric Acid in Your System That Means a
Very Dangerous Condition.
A great many people do not know
what uric acid is. It is one of the dead
liest poisons that can exist in the human
system. And it cannot exist long in the
human system, without very serious
consequences resulting-. These conse
quences often terminate in death if
neglected. The kidneys and bladder
are depended upon to expel uric acid
from the human system. That is their
When the kidneys and bladder are
sound and healthy, and in good work
ing order, they (with the assistance of
the liver) will effectually operate to
keep the system free from this uric
acid poison. But if the kidneys, blad
der and liver are sick, over-worked,
exhausted, and diseased, they cannot ex
pel the urio acid. Then the system be
comes charged and over-loaded with
this deadly poison and the immediate
results are: foul and impure blood, ex
treme nervousness, and sometimes total
mental break-down, lame and aching
back and groins, rheumatism, gout,
lumbago, deposits of stone and gravel
in the bladder, and, later if neglec

Choose the Right
The most important thing for you
to do, if you are an ailing man. is to
seek the services of THE RIGHT
DOCTOIt. Don't go to the first one
you see, simply because he happens to

man reullv knows but little about
curing tue diseases peculiar to men.

heir. He therefore knows h little
about all diseases and not a great

him he may conscientiously try to
cure vou. "out not knowing how, lie
would have to experiment upon you.

trades and master of none.'; Know

trust your life In his hands?- It

machinist to have it repaired. No,
vou would know better. You woul'i
take It to the very best ATI H
MAKKR you could find. They why
should you not use the same kind
of good, sound judgment when you
need a doctor? Your health is cer
tainly as important as your timepiece.
