CITY'S CREDIT ATTACKED
Outcome Recalls Manner In Which
Mayor Protected Portland When
Conspirators Were Moving
to Defeat Project.
Mayor Simon yesterday received con
gratulations from all over the city be
cause of the successful outcome of the
Broadway-bridge bond sale, whereby
the city received 1465.001) for a block
of bonds bid in by the National Shaw
mut Bank of Boston. This means that
the construction of the big span, for
which Mayor Simon has led the fight
for nearly two years, is assured.
"I am greatly pleased." said the
Mayor yesterday. "I have always
wanted to have the honor of building
the Broadway bridge, which is so urg
ently needed by thousands of people,
and against which there has been
waged such a bitter fight by people
who are now opposing my candidacy. I
have plans all laid to push this great
project to completion and, if returned
to office by the people next Monday,
shall bend every energy in that direc
tion. I want this to be one of the
monuments I shall leave when I fin
ally retire from office."
Hard Fight Won at Last.
Mayor Simon's success was the oc
casion yesterday for much felicitation
among the thousands of residents In
tbe North East district of the city.
It was a stinging slap In the face to
Frank Kiernan and his attorney, Balph
R. Duniway, the arch-conspirators and
obstructionists of this span demanded
by the people. Because of the part he
has played in forcing this Improvement
to Its present stage of construction.
Mayor Simon now finds himself most
vigorously opposed for re-election by
both Kiernan and Duniway. But In
their case a "knock Is a boost."
Of all the battles waged by the Mayor
for the people of Portland, it is certain
that the fight to have the Broadway
bridge project and bring it to a success
ful termination has been the hardest.
Backed by unlimited capital and unusual
determination, its opponents have vir
tually turned heaven and earth to block
the work. By persistent attacks of
trivial, but none the less vexatious, na
ture In the courts, they managed until
now to retard the work, at least, and
caused all kinds of trouble for the back
ers of the project."
Powerful Opposition Shown.
Determined opposition to the bridge
project began with the date of election
when the voters authorized a bond is
sue of $2,000,000 for it by an over
whelming vote. The first efforts to sell
bonds brought this opposition to a focus
and called forth the first suit from At
torney Duniway, for Kiernan. Kiernan
was for a long time the only public op
ponent of the measure, so far as the
courts were concerned, but as time
passed others came forward and It be
came clear that there was deep and
powerful opposition to the project and
that no pains were to be spared to de
feat the bridge project.
Coming Into office July 1, 1909, Mayor
Simon announced hla attitude on the
bridge project. Be said he favored the
vbridge and would build it. He first In
terested himself In an effort to secure
the consent of the Port of Portland
Commission for the construction of the
bridge. At first the members of this
organization, which exercises general
supervision of the harbor, objected seri
ously to the proposed improvement.
Mayor Simon went beforo the Commis
sion and earnestly presented the case
for the people, with the result that the
Commissioners finally consented to
waive their objections and consent to
the building of the span.
Developments show that Mayor Si
mon, like others, had no idea of the
power and determination of the oppo
nents of the measure. The Mayor, for
a long time, paid little heed to the ef
forts of Kiernan and Duniway, the ob
structionists, going ahead with the
plans for the bridge. He ignored all
suits and attempts to block the work,
engaged Ralph Modjeski, the noted en- 1
gineer, to handle the work on behalf
of the city and called for bids. Th
contract was awarded to the Union
Bridge & Construction Company, not
withstanding that Kiernan, Duniway
and others endeavored with all the
power at their command to stop the
work. Every available legal techni
cality was taken advantage of by these
obstructionists, but. following exten
sive litigation, the city has come out
victor, with tbe result that these ene
mies of the Broadway bridge, who are
now so ardently supporting Rushlight
for some reason, have finally lost the
right of delaying further the construc
tion of the span by securing injunc
tions. The city has 'defeated them in every
court in the state and with the funda
