BRIDGE OPENING EXPLAINED
Foreman of Morrison-Street Span
Tells Cans of Delay.
In a letter 'wrlten to The Oregonlan,
J. H. Richmond, foreman of Morrison
street bridge, commenting on a recent
article In The Oregonlan regarding a
delay of 2 minutes In closing the
bridge draw, says he is Informed by the
Portland Railway, Light Power Com
pany's inspector that the delay in ques
tion, which was shortly after noon Sat
urday, was but 20 minutes.
Mr. Richmond says that the steamer
Ruth was backing to hold herself In
position before the draw opened and
that he planned to close the draw be
fore the No Wonder arrived upstream.
At this Juncture, be writes, be found
that he had not sufficient pojver to
make headway. Later, with very in
sufficient power, he closed the bridge.
Mr. Richmond says he was on duty
continuously until 10:30 P. M-, when
repairs to ground and feed wires were
made, which must last until the river
subsides. . , .
Delays In opening the draw with
the river in Its present stage." says
Mr. Richmond, "might mean great loss
of property and perhaps life and I shall
reserve the right to safeguard both
bridge and water traffic, even though
slightly more than ordinary time Is re
quired In opening."
