Slight Change Requested by Asso

So as to Permit Use or Wood
Blocks for Flooring.
By the middle of March. Jt is now
nmctlcally assured. the interstate

In the world, will be actually In course
of construction. Yesterday plans ano
rHnstions for the bridjre. submit
ted by E. E. Howard, of the firm of
rons-ultlng engineers, were adopted by
the Bridge Commission ana aavemse
mrnts for birds were ordered.
Beyond this, the Commission went on
record as favoring home products to an
extent that the plans and specification
will be amended to make bids for
wooden block pavlDg possible. This
action was taken at the instance of a
large delegation from the West Coast
Lumber Manufacturers' Association.
which attended the meeting- of the
rnrnmUxinn vesterdar.
Governor West, who under the law is
a member of the Commission, tele
f?ranhei his reerets that he could not
b present, and urged that the Com
mission favor wooaen diock pavemeui
for the bridge.
Governor l're ITse f Wood.
His telea-ram was as follows:
"Owinr to the convening of the Leg
islature tomorrow. It will be Impossible
for me to attend the bridge meeting,
Irt me urge, however. Inasmuch as we
are endeavoring to encourage home
products, that the specifications favor a

Led by W. B. Mackay. president of
tho Went Coast Lumber Manuracturers
Association, and accompanied by E. C
Oillner. secretary of the Chamber of
Commerce, a delegation from the Lum
ber Manufacturers Association was
present when the meeting opened. The
delegation consisted of H. II. KtrK, o.

Cornwall. F. H. Kansom and F. B.
Reals. Kach member made a short talk
on tho advantages of wooden block
Paving, objecting to the fact that the
Plans for the bridge, as printed, made
such requirements mat diocks cuuio

Engineer Howard said that. If au
thorized by the Commission, ne woum
Issue a supplementary letter to the
plan, setting forth other data which
would permit of the use of wooden
blocks. This was agreed to.
Mlcbt t'tante Xeeessary.
The original plans called for a five-
Inch concrete base to hold tne streetcar
roiia nri a two-inch wearing surface
on top. Two Inches is said to be too
thin fnr wooden blocks. If tbls Is in
pressed, the height of the rails must
be increased In proportion, air. now

Advertisements for bids will be printed
Immediately. This will take 30 days.
Itlds will be opened on February 13 at
S o'clock P. M.. and tne contract win
be awarded. Allowing a little time to

mates that construction should be under
way by the middle or Alarcn.
From nnd to end the bridge will be
17.000 feet long. The actual steel por
tion of this, crossing the Columbia
ltlver. Oregon Slough and Columbia
Slough, will occupy 5000 feet, and there
will be 12.00 feet of embankment.
Across the Columbia Klver will be 14
spans. 11 will cross Oregon Slough and
four will cross Columbia Slough.
The Commission made no decision on
the style of draw span to be Installed.
Elds are asked on both the draw and
swing spans, and engineers' drawlnga
of the bridge show both styles. At the
request of the War Department one of
the spans crossing Columbia Slough
will be fitted so that with the least pos
sible labor it can be converted into a
draw to let ships pass.
Steel Only Foreign Troduet Needed.
"We have shown In the specifica
tions." said Mr. Howard, "that the mem
bers of tho Commission prefer the use
of home products to the greatest pos
sible extent. In making their bids en
gineers will take this Into considera
tion. 1 know of nothing that cannot

are no rolling mills on the Pacific
It Is estimated that 9500 tons of steel,
l.nnO.000 cubic yards of embankment
and 19.000 cubic yards of concrete must
be used In building the bridge.
Withdrawal of their objection to the
lift type of span was contained in a
letter to the Commission from the
Northwest Steel Company. In this let
ter the company says It has changed
lis Tlews with regard to the lift span.
which It believed would discourage the
trafnc of sailing ships.
The completion or the Panama Canal,
it adds, has shortened the distance by
water to the Pacific Coast to such an
extent that sailing vessels no longer
offer the advantages of cheap transpor
tation. Rufus C. Holman presided at yester

Lower Interest, Change of Denomlna-
tlsa a ad Seml-Annaal Payments
Desired la Bancroft Act.
Bond-buyers and representatives of
bonding companies will meet with the
City Council at the City Hall at 3
o'clock today to consider a measure
which the Council proposes to submit
to the State Legislature making im
portant changes in the Bancroft bond-
ng act. under the provisions of which
the city does all its public Improve
ment work. The views of the bond-
buyers will be heard on the subject,
after which the measure will be taken
to Salem by City Attorney La Roche.
The Council proposes to change the
act so that the interests of property
wners will be better protected and so
that the system will be simpler for the
city. Under this act property owners
grant liens to the city on their prop-
rty, on the strength or whicn liens tne
lty issues bonds to provide money to
pay contractors. The bonds are issued
or the payment of street paving, sewer
construction, grading of streets, laying
of sidewalks and extension of streets.
The law at present requires the is
suance of the bonds in the denomina
tion of 500. The Council wants this
hanged so that the bonds may be is
sued in the denomination of 31000. This
is to save printing bills on large issues.
At present property owners have only
10'days in which to file application tor
bonding after the completion of a con
tract. The Council wants to extend the
time to 20 days.
The law now requires the issuance
of bonds bearing S per cent interest.
The Council wants to change this to
permit lowering the rate of interest.
The most Important change is in the
time for the payment of interest on the
bonds. Interest now is paid the city
annually by the property owners, and
has to be paid semi-annually by the
city to the purchasers of the bonds. As
result the city has to carry out or its
general fund an amount sufficient to
pay six months interest tor tne prop
erty owner, and this money does not all
come back until 10 years after the
issuance of the bonds.

Merchants National Bank Voices
Views on Conditions.
Optimism for the new year Is voiced
in the general letter on trade condi
tions. Just issued by the Merchants' Na
tional Bank. Increases in advertising
campaigns by bouses doing a Nation
wide business is considered on indi
cation of approaching good times.
Money is reported plentiful for domes
tic trade needs, more than one-half of
the emergency currency issued under
the Aldrich-Vreeland act having been
An increase in lumbering activities
in tho Pacific Northwest and the ex
port of grain is anticipated. The sale
of horses for war purposes and the
heavy charter of ocean carriers from
Portland and Puget Sound to urope
are noted.
The oDeninjr of the New York and
London stock exchanges without ad
verse conditions arising has given con
fidence to the commercial world. It is
said, and has paved the way for offer
ing new securities. The letter says
that the S per cent increase in rail
road rates, granted by the Interstate
Commerce Commission overshadowed
all other constructive elements for the
last month.

Moraine Blase Wnlch Does
Damage of 91000.
The cool head and steady nerves of
rather saved the lives of his four
hildren in an early morning fire in
Woodlawn yesterday, which partially
destroyed the dwelling of Mr. ana airs.
F. h, Feight, 622 Buffalo street. A
knotted rope, quickly fashioned from
bed coverings, was the means of the
frightened youngsters reaching safety
with the aid of their father.
The blaze, believed to have started
from defective wiring, was not dis
covered until 3 A. M., when Mrs.
Feight. who slept lightly because of
the Illness of a 2-year-old son, who
had the croup, was wakened by smoke
in the bedroom. She roused her hus
band, who carried the youngster out
of the house. The four other chil
dren were asleep on the second floor
of the building.
Mr. Feight then rushe back into the
burning building and reached the up
per floor. Smoke and flames by this
time blocked the stairway, cutting off
retreat in that direction. Seizing the
blankets from the children's beds," Mr.
Feight knotted them together and tied
one end about the bed post. He let
the other end out over the roof.
Calling to his eldest daughter. El
eanor, aged 12. he helped her along
the roof and to the. end of the impro
vised rope from which there was a
drop of about eight feet. In the same
manner the other children were res
rued, Eleanor assisting In breaking
the falls by catching them as they
jumped. Feight was the last to use
the rope, getting to the ground just
before flames .. burned through - the
