Portland Railway, Light & Power
Property Moved When Tracks
Raised Without Mishap Work
Accomplished in Short Time.
VANCOUVER. Wash., June 4. (Spe
r.iaL) In less than an hour after the
50-ton wooden span across Reserve
street had been removed today the 800
ton concrete building, property of the
Portland Railway, Light & Power Com
pany, had been pulled across the right
of way of the North. Bank road and the
two wreckers were busily engaged in
reuniting the track. Hundreds of peo
ple came early today and waited until
the building had passed through.
The concrete power station has about
reached its destination, after being
moved on rollers for a distance of a
mile. The building was first erected
by the Mount Hood Power Company
for a sub-power station. All of the lat
est makes of transformers, oil cutouts
and other mechanical contrivances were
included within the station.
And then the Portland Railway. Light
A: Powtr Company took over the hold
ings of tlte Mount Hood Company and
this power station was included. But
to be useful it was necessary for it to
be removed to tlte foot of Main street.
Contract Half of Cost.
A contract was let. the price being
bout ."'OUU. it is understood, while the
cost of the building originally was
about 111.000. Two companies took the
contract, the first one losing 12000 in
getting the building started. It was
sublet to Uerriek & Gerrick, and later
by that firm to Andrew r. Moodie.
house mover, of Portland.
More than a week ago the structure
had been taken to Hie right of way of
the Spokane. Portland & Seattle Rail
road, and there it was permitted to rest
until permission could be secured from
the company to take out the span.
This was done today, and after the
through train passed, at 10:22 o'clock,
the derrick & derrick wrecker followed
it out, and then the regular train

In less than half an hour the cranes
from either wrecker were lowered and
with cables the ends of the span were
lashed to the crane3. The span was
raised vertically until it cleared the
The span was lowered to the track
and the work of pulling the building
across the right of way of the railroad
began. No mishap occurred.
As soon as the building was through
the opening the wreckers picked up the
bridge span and gently and again with

were bolted together and traffic was not
delayed, as no trains were due to pass
for two hours after the work had been
completed. ., ,
Southern Pacific Would Haul Prod
uct From CJold .11111.
SALEM. Or., June 4. (Special.)
Application has been made by the
Southern Pacific to the Railroad Com
mission to put Into effect a low rate
for hauling cement from Oold Hill,
Jackson County, to Portland. Upon
the result of the petition rests the
future of tha cement Industry In the
southwestern part of the state. Port
land also is vitally affected, for ce
ment Is now shipped by water from
San Francisco much cheaper than it
can be shipped from the Oold Hill
territory. .
However, if the proposed rate Is ap
proved, it will be cheaper to ship
from Southwestern Oregon, and one
of the largest industries in the state
will be the result. There are large
quantities of cement rock In the ter
ritory, enough, it is said, to supply
the requirements of Portland and
other Oregon cities for many years.
The application is made under an
act passed by the Legislature two
years ago providing that the Commis
sion may authorize lower rates when
It Is evident they would aid in the
upbuilding of tho state. The old law
provided that no" raw could be lower
than the aggregate of rates to in
termediate points.
