Up Largely by Cost of
Rights of Way.
SLOUGH LAND IS NEEDED
Coonly Finds It Will Need About
1 1 50,000 to Bnjr Approach Sites
Controrerpy Arises Over Terms
VIth Owners of Property.
Although the contract for the new
Interstate bridse will be approximately
$250,000 below the estimated cost of
i 1.780.000, it is evident that numerous
items of expense heretofore unforeseen
will absorb a large portion of this now
For example, there U the Item of the
approach on the Oregon side. The
Brldee Commission and lhteresiea prop
rrty owners conferred on this subject
yesterday and it developed thsft it will
cost at least $150,000 to secure the
needed riKhts of way.
While the engineers had made some
allowance for right-of-way purposes,
they did not figure on an amount of this
fize and the Commissioners began at
once to see generous portions of their
tidy surplus fading away.
A misunderstanding has arisen be
tween the Commission and the Penin
FUla Industrial Company a subsidiary
of the Swift packing-house interests, of
Chicago over the terms for about 13
acres of land needed for the mmn ave
nue approach and 11 acres needed for
the Derby-street approach. The com
pany owns them both. The Commission
needs the Union avenue property, as
that will be the main route to the
bridge, but is not so particular about
the Derby-street tract, as the approach
on that street is being built largely
upon the solicitation of the Peninsula
Industrial Company and the Lnion
Meat Company, both of which concerns
are owned by the same financial inter
C. C. Colt, president of both these
companies, together with O. C. Spencer,
his attorney, met with the Commission
yesterday. John F. Logan appeared as
attorney for other Interested property
Company Offers Land.
The Peninsula Industrial Company
offered to deed the two strips of land
to the county on the following terms:
That the Commissioners first .give
them a perpetual franchise for their
streetcars over the Derby-street ap
proach; second, that the grade of the
roadway be chaDged and an under
neath crossing for railway tracks 100
feet clear in width be built by the
company; also that the county build
for them, through each approach, a
canal-opening, giving a span of 100
feet, and provide therein steel bridges,
and also that the county give them the
right to cross both of the approaches
at every point that they desire with
switch tracks underneath at grade or
overhead, and that the county pay the
expenses of installing safety devices.
This would add an expense of about
$150,000 to the cost of the bridge.
Roadways Are Wamted.
The Peninsula Industrial Company
further asked that the county provide
four roadways over each approach, to
be built at "the expense of the county.
They also requested that the county
pive them the right to cross both of
the approaches with pipes, conduits,
wires, etc. Should the county accede
to these requests it would, in fact, be
paying $160,000 for 24 acres of land.
The County Commissioners proposed
that in return for both strips of land
they would build an approach on Derby
street; that they would provide over
each approach two cross-roadways;
that they would provide an embank
ment Sou feet long at an elevation of
45 feet above high water, which would
enable the company to put switch
tracks under this length of embank
ment by depressing them to a small
extent, providing proper side walls and
sump pumps for extreme conditions of
high water, as is common in such con
ditions. Coanty Agreea in Tart.
They agree likewise to grant to the
company a franchise for the operation
of cars on the Derby-street approach,
but upon the same terms governing
other railroad grants. They have
pointed out to the Peninsula Industrial
Company that it is possible to provide
n canal parallel to the Derby-street
approach connecting with Columbia
Slough by which access can be made
to the lakes on the property of the
rompany and thus avoid the necessity
of building two special bridges and
approaches. Mr. Colt has agreed that
suih arrangement would be satisfac
tory to him. '
The matter therefore reduces itself
to the qeustion as to the terms of the
franchise which the county will grant
for streetcars on the Derby-street ap
proach and the provision for sub
merged crossings. The county and the
company each wants the other to bear
the expense of such crossings.
The county has agreed to build the
Derby-street approach and provide the
riecessarv crossroads. This will cost
YOUNG OPERA STAR COMING
Maggie Teyte to Appear In Kecital
at Heills on March 23.
The most marvelous example of a
quick and triumphant cntrv into the
world of grand opera is that of Mag
gie Teyte. the young prima donna
whose wonderful voice and beauty
have made her a star of first magni
tude at 17 years of age. She is now
23. and will sing in Portland under
the direction of Steers & Coman o,n
Tuesday, March 23, at the Heilig.
Youth, beauty and genius combine
to make Miss Teyte ono of the most
fascinating stars in the operatic
world, as well as the youngest. She
is specially adapted by nature to rep
resent the ultra-modern in music.
For the past three years sho has
boen the acknowledged interpreter of
Monsieur "Claude Debussy's music and
also of all modern French music. Her
debut was made at the fashionable
Winter resort of Monte Carlo. In nine
days she had Paris at her feet. -The
musical population of that gay city
could talk of nothing else except her
voice, her beauty and her wit. This
opportunity to hear Miss Teyte in the
freshness of her powers will be appre
ciated by Portland people.

Mr. Smith saw the Chicago World's
Fair in 1893 and says that in many
particulars the San Francisco show
has the edge on the big exposition of
22 years ago. . He likes the color
pcheme better. The present show is
done in pink, orange and blue. At
Chicago everything was pure white.
The San Francisco fair is the bigger
of the two. It covers more ground
and the buildings are more compact,
but by no means crowded. Chicago
may have had a wider variety of
foreign exhibits, he says, but San
Francisco still may excel in that re

throughout the grounds are superior
to those of the Chicago show.

PICKERS' SUIT DELAYED
MADE BY NEW LAW
HEARIVG OF IBS PLAIXTIFFS FROM
HOPFIELDS BEFORE! COIRT.
Propeet of Hearing More Than 200
M'ltneaaea Means Yet later Trial,
Says Jodge Morrow.
More than 150 hoppickers in a motley
throng crowded Circuit Judge Morrow's
courtroom yesterday to hear the trial
of their suit against Dorcas Bros., wno,
they declare, promised them zo days
work in the hopnelds and failed to
fulfill the contract. There are 165 plain
tiffs in the suit, and each demands $3.50
a day for 11 days. The total amount
asked is $4427.50.
The crowd was disappointed yester
day, for the case failed to come on for
trial. Other court business interfered
and Judge Morrow told the hoppickers
they might as well go home and come
back later. Strenuous efforts of Judge
Morrow to get the attorneys in the case
to settle some of the details out of
court and avoid examination of more
than 200 witnesses, who have been sum
moned, proved futile. The defense
maintained that the case was a manu
factured one, and each one of the plain
tiffs, besides numerous other persons,
should be called to the stand. In order
to prove his case Seneca Fouts, attorney
for the 165 hoppickers, will have to
call each one of them to the witness
The complaint, which is 226 pages
long, is said to be the most voluminous
ever filed in the Multnomah County Cir
cuit Court. The hoppickers declare that
they answered an advertisement of
Dorcas Bros, for 1000 pickers, and were
told to go to various yards up the Wil
lamette Valley. The advertisements
stated that there would be 20 days of
picking at 50 cents a box.
If you gentlemen can't agree on
some details and eliminate about nine-
tenths of these witnesses, the time of
this court is going to be occupied for
many days to come," Judge Morrow told

Grays Harbor liainfall Is Light.
HOOUIAM. Wash.. March 2. (Spe
cial.) Grays Harbor, one of the wet
test sections of Washington, and also
one of the wettest sections of the
I'nited States, when gauged by its
average annual rainiau, is m a lair
way to see reqords for light precipi
tation for the Winter months broken.
Grays Harbor is already 17.5 inches
below the average winter rainfall, ac
cording to figures taken In 14 years.
Now that the legislative smoke has
cleared away and the various depart
ments of the state government have

portant . offices that - otherwise would
have remained in aharge of the incum
bents until their terms expire.
Mr. Beckwith'a Friends Busy.
One such office already has been diS'
posed of by the resignation of Miss
Fern Hobbs as a member or tne inaus
trial Accident Commission and the se
lection of Carle Abrams to succeed her.
- The Governor has power, however, to
replace the two other members of the
commission with persons of his own
selection. Under the law no more than
two members of the commission can be
members of the same political party.
Mr. Abrams is a Republican. W. R.
Marshall, one of the present commis
sioners, is a Republican, and Harvey
Beckwith. the other commissioner, is a
Democrat. Mr. Beckwith's friends are
urging the Governor to allow him to
remain on the board in the place that
must be given to a non-Republican.
Elmer Amidon. secretary or tne
Multnomah County committee, wants to
be appointed examiner in the corpora
tion department to succeed S. B. Vin
cent, who was appointed when the de
partment, was created two years ago.
Mr. Araidon is circulating a petition
and has the signatures of a large num
ber of Republicans, who think that his
service for the party demands recogni
tion at the hands of the state.
Other Places May Be Changed.
The Moser bill also will give the Gov
ernor power to remove members of the
various non-salaried boards and com
missions, such as the regencies of the
state educational Institutions and the
governing bodies of the several elee
mosynary institutions that are sup
ported in whole or In part by the state.
It is expected, however, that th6 Gov
ernor will not be in haste to make
changes in these places, if, indeed, he
makes any at all.
Failure of the Legislature to pass
Senate bill No. 297 aimed, to transfer
the appointive powers now in the hands
of - the Board of Control to the Gov
ernor, precludes the possibility of
wholesale changes in the heads of the
big state institutions.'
It is apparent, however, that Colonel
B. K. Lawson, warden of the State
Penitentiary, is sure to lose his offi
cial scalp before many weeks roll
Colonel Lawson Slated to Go.
Colonel Lawson was one of Governor
West's favorites and was one of his
most trusted instruments in carrying
out the West prison policies. For that
reason he is unsatisfactory to the pres-'
ent administration, as Governor Withy
combe proposes to follow a different
policy in conducting the penitentiary.
He will attempt to provide employment
for the men inside the walls, so that
the institution may be made, to a cer
tain extent, at least, self supporting.
Harry P. Minto, of Salem, is one of
the most active candidates for the prison
wardenship. and. it is rumored, will
get the Job. "Dad" Hunter, special
agent for the O.-W. R. & N. Company,
and Andy Vaughn, a Portland detec
tive, also are candidates for the place.
Joe Keller, ex-captain of police in
Portland, is out for the job of parole

Several Want Commandantcy.
Several candidates are out for the
position of commandant at the Soldiers"
Home at Roseburg. Among them is
Colonel W. G. D. Mercer, who was ser-geant-at-arms
of the recent Senate. He
is a Civil War veteran with an excel
lent record. Every Republican member
of the Senate signed his petition asking
the board to appoint him. Friends of
W. W. Elder, the present commandant.
are urging ' that no change be made.
He is a Democrat.
In filling the offices of institutions
under jurisdiction of the Board of Con
trol, Secretary of State Olcott and
Treasurer Kay each has an equal voice
with the Governor. It is believed
therefore, that Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner,
superintendent of the State Hospital for
the Insane, at Salem, will be retained.
Dr. W. D. McNary, superintendent of
the Tuberculous Hospital; E. S. Tillin
ghast, superintendent of the School for
the Deaf; E. T. Moore, superintendent
of the Blind, and Will Hale, superin
