TTTE MORNING OREGOXIAX, TTTTJRSDAT, FEBRUARY 3. 1910. 15 VOTE AUTHORIZES NEW HIGH SCHOOL Taxpayers, by 193 to 50, De cide for $350,000 Bond Issue. -AORK WILL BEGIN AT ONCE Con struct ion on S I r act u re to Take Place or Lincoln High Will Be Completed In 18 Months. Vote Cast Is Small. " Bonds to trve amount of $.T50.0V) were au thorized by the taxpayers at the srhool election yestprriay. the vote beinj? 193 for find 50 ftgainst the proposition.. After the rnnvaM and the result announced, T. N". Kleischner, chairman of the Board of Ed ucation, announced that the 'Board win proceed with the work of actual construc tion of a new Uncoln High School at once. Tt will probably bo completed with in IX months. "The first tbtnpr to do." raid Mr. Fleisch nr. 'in for tho Board to determine the manner of aecurinjr plans " and ppecifica rionr. Some of the members have- ex prewd a desire to select , an- architect and abide by hi plans, thus doir.fr away with the wranple that resulted In the case of the Jefferwn High School, whan we had a number of architpcts bidding: in competition and nearly all were dis pleased. Other mPTnbers feel thit the old plan is best, provided the Board makes it known in advance that it will be the final Judg-p of what is best to be selected when all of the plan? are In hand. Headquarters Is In Question. "As to the building:' itself. It Is too early to make any statements as to Jts construction, but I will say that H !s doubtful as to whether we will combine an administration "headquarters. There are objections' to doinj? this, and we may decide to build a headquarters building elsewhere. . It lias not, however, .-.been determined as yet. "If we would put the administration nrrices in tne new Lincmn msn swnooi, u would be nereppary to ufp the top Moor for the purpose, necessitating the instal lation of an elevator. This would entail additional expense for operation and would make a good deal of difference in the building also. That we must have an' administration headquarters, there is no doubt, as the district is fretting so large tho.t this is absolutely necessary. We have things scat tered all over the city now, when everything in the administra tion line should be grouped. "We are greatly pleased that the tax payers authorized the bond issue, and we will proceed to actual work upon the building as rapidly as possible. The reg ular meeting of the Board will be held Friday afternoon and It is possible we will take up and consider the subject at that time." The polls were open in the office of School Clerk Thomas from 1 to 4 P. M. yesterday. While- the voting was light, this was largely due to the fact that no holiday was declared, and It is difficult to get out a large vote on a business day. It had; been, anticipated that there; might be a litth opposition to the bond issue, but nothing;- serious developed, as only 50 votes were recorded against the proposi tion. Those who acted as clerks of election were R. K. Warren. V. R. Bishop. John Mock. W. R. Hall and Robert Foulkes. The site selected by the Board of Edu cation for the proposed new high school building is on the block bounded by Couch, Davis, Seventeenth and Eight eenth streets. It was purchased more than a year ago for $95,000 and is con sidered an ideal place for the West Side High School. , Tilncoln. ITlcl Yet to Be Vsetf. It will, of course, be necessary to util ize the present Lincoln High School building until the new one is completed and ready for occupancy. It is out of dat1 and inadequate to present-day needs, making the completion of the new build ing a matter of great urgency. It will be sold when abandoned by the Board of Education. What action the Board will take rela tive to the proposed administration build ing Is problematical, but the members must face this problem soon, as Mayor Simon is urglnir the Board to remove its offices from- the City Hall. -The rooms occupied by the Board of Kducatlon . and the superintendents of instruction are needed by municipal departments so much that the Mayor recently took up the sub ject with Chairman Flelschner and asked him to arrange some means whereby the city may . have the rooms In the near future.

CAN PAVE 60 MILES IN 1910 Kxtenslons Will Be Confined to Streets Which Are to Be Hard Surfaced This Year Mayor Made Profit on Everett Work. Operations of the Water Board as to the installation of new mains this sea son will be largely confined to streets that are to be paved with hard-surface materials, according to the policy out lined ' at yesterday's session. A list of these thorougfares is to be checked up by Commissioners Wilcox, Ains worth and Mackay, City Engineer Mor ris and Chief Engineer Clarke, of the Water Department. The urgent cases will then be rushed, bids being sought for these ahead of all others. There are approximately 79 miles of streets to be hard-surfaced where wa ter mains must be Installed, accord ing to a report submitted by Superin tendent Dodge and Engineer Clarke, and it will be the aim of the board to give its first efforts to these streets, in order that the pipes may be laid ahead of the paving. Mayor Simon will not permit any cutting of pavements for the installation of mains, except in the few cases where it is absolutely neces sary. He is strongly opposed to this, and at the outset has had a fixed policy against it. Can Only Pave 60 Miles. Mr. Wilcox Inquired of the Mayor how many miles of hard-surface pave ments will, in all probability, be laid this coming Summer. The Mayor re plied that, to the best of his Judgment, considering everything, it would be im possible to lay more than 60 miles. "I do not believe." said Mr. Wilcox, "that we will be able to 'lay so many mains as should be laid this Summer, owing to the scarcity of labor and other conditions, and I believe we should confine our operations very largely to those streets that are to be paved with hard-surface materials." This proved to be the opinion of the other members, Messrs. Ainsworth and Mackay, and the Mayor also heartily agreed. He further suggested that there be "more co-operatlnn in the fu BROADWAY LINE DIRECT TO ALAMEDA PARK REGULAR BROADWAY CARS RUN ON REGULAR SCHEDULE TO ALAMEDA PARK BEGINNING TODAY PRICES ON ALAMEDA PARK LOTS WILL BE ADVANCED MARCH 1. The promise for streetcar service direct to Alameda Park is now fulfilled by established fact. This morning: the regular Broadway cars began running direct to Alameda Park on regular Broadway schedule. The Alameda Land Company, in order to secure this great advantage for the residents of Alameda Park, have paid $12,000 to extend the carline to the Park. This extension was advertised to be completed with cars in operation on February 3. This promise has been fulfilled to the letter. In order to allow all persons who have been considering the pur chase of lots, the opportunity to buy before the advance in prices, this advance has been-postponed until March 1. On this date all prices will positively be advanced. ' Everyone wishing to see Alameda Park may now take Broadway car at Fifth and Washington street and go direct to this beautiful residence section. With the coming of warmer weather the street improvements will be rushed as fast as men any money will do it. Scores of homes are to be built this Summer. The present prices on Alameda Park lots are positivelv fifty per cent lower than surrounding values. Concrete examples of this will be given upon application. Just one instance: Several daj-s ao a lot 100x100 on the corner of Twentieth and Thompson streets, Irvington, sold for $6000. A lot of the same size, with superior location and with superior improvements being installed, may be had in Alameda Park for $2000, exclusive of improvements, which will make it about $3000 when the improvements are all installed. This is but a typical example. Other lots may be had for as low as $850. All who have as much as 10 per cent of the purchase price to lay down may buy now in Alameda Park, and secure not only a choice location but also the low price, which will positivelv advance March 1. Further particulars may be had of the Alameda Land Company owner of Alameda Park, 322 Corbett Building. ' THE Raflway Co. THE Arrive Woodburn. Arrive Woodburn. Arrive Woodburn Arrive Woodburn.

NEVINS, Traffic Manager ture" between Chief Engineer Clarke, of the Water Board, and City Engineer Morris. This, said the Mayor, is neces sary if the water mains are to be laid ahead of the pavements, as they should be. instead of the water pipes being laid on unpaved streets, for which, in numerous cases, no provision has been made for paving. He then referred the list of streets where pavements are to be laid to the members of the Board for consideration, and an effort will be made In the near future to secure bids for the Installation of these mains. The outcome is problematical, as it has been very difficult to secure good bids on the laying of mains under the present law of taxing the cost to abutting prop erty. Contractors are not desirous of taking chances of. the collection of their money under this provision of the law. City Can Outdo Contractors. The Mayor reported to the Board as to his work as a contractor in laying an eight-inch main in Everett street last Pall. He completed the work In record time and made a profit of $76.19, and with interest on the bonds of $13.69, netted the city $31.58, which he turned in to Super intendent Dodge by check. "This; shows that we can beat the con tractors all hollow when it comes to the city laying mains," said Mr. Wilcox, who Is a strong advocate of the proposed amendment submittted by the Mayor re cently, but now recalled by him because of opposition. "If we had the right to lay mains, we could do a great deal," he concluded. A contract aggregating $55,000 for mains In the Laurelhurst tract was let to the Barber Asphalt Paving Company, and the Mayor' announced that he had ar ranged with Oskar Huber, the manager, to give the city a, bond for $25,000. guar anteeing the city against any possible loss in case the property-owners should refuse to pay their water assessments. In addition to this, the regular bond, for the full contract price, must be given by the company. The indemnity bond will be furnished by the Laurelhurst Company. Waivers from all of the property were niea, enabling the board to award the contract to the lone bidder. Barber Company Must Show. The Barber Asphalt Company, by Mr. Huber, had submitted applications for time extensions on three water mains of 90 days each, but all were tabled, as the Mayor and the members- of the board de sire to see whether there is good cause for these delays-. A fine may be levied. In the case of a necessary repair in a 20-inch main at the foot of Pettygrove street, the board ordered the repair made and payment to be had from the general fund. City Attorney Kavanaugh had rendered an opinion to the effect that the work must be charged to the abutting property, but his opinion was ignored in this instance. Business Men Go on Junket.
