frith jFranchise on , Anotlier Street
:the Corporation. Did Not AVant
to Bear the Additional Ex
pense Contemplated.
A. great deal of testimony that -had
io afreet bearing- on the Rumelia .case
admitted during the trial yester-
Snornlng. It has been generally un-
lerstooa that the City & Suburban
illway Company was "behind the bid
ft the Pacific Construction Company,
the firm that was awarded the bid
fter J. J. Maney had been allowed to
rUhdraw. but It was not until C. F.
Swigert, former manager of that com
bany took the stand that this fact be-
bame definitely known. Mr. Swigert -was
palled by the defense, but It was under
thir close cross-examination by Dls
rict Attorney John Manning, that Mr.
swigert admitted that he had F. M.
Jutler, agent for the Pacific Construc
tion Company, of California, his uncle.
jake a bid for the contract.
2Ir. Swigert, according to his testi
lony, was out to oppose the building
if tho Front-street bridge. He was
ware that if the contract was let lor
the building of this bridge that the
company he represented, would be as-
fesea one-fourth of the cost of con
struction, and as the consolidated com
pany had a franchise o'er the First-
street bridge, he wanted to save this
loney. He stated that he had talked
jver the matter with Mayor "Williams
ajid had said to His Honor that the
Jlry & Suburban was willing to throw
ip it franchise over Front street Mr.
Jwlgert said his reason for getting
Butler to make a bid for the work was.
I in case the .contract was let to the Pa
cific Construction Company of Califor
nia, that the City & Suburban Com-
pans, would be in absolute control and
t tnere was a chance to get out
Mylng the one-fourth assessment.
the City & Suburban Company would
not be hampered.
Mayor Williams was the "first witness
called during the morning. His Honor
stated that Mr. Swigert had called on
fnfm at his office. During this call the
Mayor testified that Mr. Swigert had
informed him that the City & Suburban
wanted to throw up Its franchise across
the Front-street bridge because the
i-ooeipany would be called upon to pajr
one-iourtn or tne cost or the constnrc-
I tin of the bridge. On cross-examlna-!
tion His Honor stated that nothing had
been said during this meeting with Mr.
I Swigert concerning the bids of the Pa
! clfic Construction Company of Everett.
"Wash., or that put in by the California
I company. Mayor "Williams, after Mr.
Swigert had told his -story to the jury.
made a statement In which he said that
i he had always opposed the construction
of the Front-street bridge. "This struc
ture," he continued, "is only 200 feet
from tho steel structure that crosses
First street, and In my opinion I did
l-Stti-l'Ttefc that the people of that part
of the city should be forccdito stand the
additional expense of paying for tho
bridge across Front street. I frankly
told Mr. Swigert that I had opposed the
building of that structure and that I
would opose It to the end. My conver
sation with Mr. Swigert was in regard
to the desire of the City & Suburban
to abandon Its franchise. I told" him
that I thought that this could be done,
but that the company would have to
.stand Its share of the cost of construc
just the same.
ity Attorney McNary explained his po
sition In the matter by saying: "It Is
trjfv that I told Mr. Swigert that I would
work against the construction of the
Front-street bridge. The Mayor and I
talked it over, arid as. the property-owners
were protesting against the payment of
the First-street bridge, which was only
200 feet from the Front-street structure,
and as I feared that the city .might yet
have to pay for the Front-street bridge.
I was opposed to the other structure. If.
however. I had been aware of the deal
that was on I would have explained my
position In regard to this matter when l
kwas on the witness stand."
Most of the testimony presented to the
jury tended to show that Rumelin had
never approached any of the members of
the Executive Board regarding the Front
street bridge contract. The attorneys for
the defense brought this testimony out.
Intending to .show that Elliott's" charges
against the city father who Is on trial
were not true. There was some testimony
produced rcgardinc the threat that. El
liott had made when he was forced to
resign his office as City Engineer, which
was to the effect that he, Elliott, would
get even with Rumelin.
J. B. C. Xrockwood and Robert "Wake
field, both, experienced contractors, were
called to the stand and testified regadlng
the estimates they had made upon the
oristruction of the Front-street bridge.
Both contractors, swore that the bid of
the Pacific Construction Company, known
as the J. J. Money bld was entirely, -too
low, and the bridge could not, under such
bids, be constructed without loss to the
contractors. In addition to these wit
nesses, Charles F. Bcebe. Senator SIg
I?ir'hpl "FT: r? Wnrtma n Mfl TT. W- ClnrT.
"rd, all members of the Executive Board,
testified that C E. Rumelin had never
approached them in regard to the Front
street bridge contract. Two members of
the board seemed to know very little
about what was done by the board when
the Maney business came up. They had
only a hazy idea of what was done.
F. M. Butler, manager of the Pacific
Construction Company, of California, and
Mr. Swlgert's uncle, was the las witness
who testified. At the conclusion of his
testimony the court adjourned until Mon
day morning.
Butler admitted that through Mr. Swi
gert he bad made a -bid on the Front
street bridge, and that 'he had assigned It
to George F. Huessner. A or the considera

Finds That .the Centennial exposi
tion Is Well 'Advertised In
Eastern Communities.
"Will H.. Parry, a prominent citizen ot
Seattle, who has traveled extensively In
the East during the past two months, was
in Portland yesterday, eri route home, and
spoke enthusiastically of this city In com
parison with places visited by him .upon
the Atlantic seaboard and elsewhere In
the course of his absence.
Mr. Parry formerly resided here, and
has been familiar -with Portland since 1S82,
and during his 17 years' residence in Seat,
tic has kept in close touch with this place.
Much to his surprise, as well as pleasure,
he found upon his return here that Port
land compares very favorably in its -metropolitan
character and general air of
activity with any Eastern city, and says
that he cannot recall any city there that
would make a greater Impression upon a
casual visitor than Portland.
He finds business districts here com
pact, but not congested, and its shops dis
play fully as large a line of goods as
those of any Eastern city, in addition,
the streets show great activity? and In
fact, said he, the general air of the place
was on the metropolitan order:
During his absence Mr. Parry made con
siderable Inquiry concerning the impres
sion created In the East by the Lewis and
Clark Exposition, and found everywhere
an extensive knowledge of the situation.
Placards were in evidence at all points
relating to the matter, and the low rates
to the Coast were the subject of a great
deal of favorable comment.
At New York and Washington, D. C, he
met many prominent railroad men, an In
ternational convention of railroad men
being In session at the latter place while
he was there, and all evinced an Intimate
acquaintance with Western conditions,
and referred- In especially eulogistic terms
to the enterprise of the people here in
holding the Centennial Fair. The most
serious question with them, according to
Parry, related to the ability of the trans
portation companies, to handle the enor
mous crowds that are certain to attend'
the Exposition, in many Instances book
ings having ben made weeks in advance
of the 'opening.
Third Society Slay Joia the Other Two,
8hi1 Greatly IacreRwe the
Steps 'were taken yesterday by
which an amalgamation was effected
between two well-known fraternni or-
ganizations. the Order of "Washington
and the Independent Order of Lions.
.and tie Order of Washington ip now
prepared to carry out all obligations
entered Into by the Order of Lions. ,
The new society has a membership
of over 14,000, and it is expected that
another deal will be consummated by
the end of this week whereby It will
combine with" another- fraternal soci
ety whose name Is not known and
whose membership Is about 1000. By
the first deal, a " saving in thousands
of dollars yearly in working expenses
will -be effected, and one strong, influ
ential society will do better work In
caring for business than when two so
cieties operate in. what is practically
the same field, particularly in Oregon
and Washington. The new arrange
ments just completed make the Order
of Washington the second largest
fraternal insurance order in the West,
only exceeded In numbers by- the
Woodmen of the World. None of the
members of the Order of Llpns require
to' "be re-examined to make the change
In organization: they retain their pol
icies issued by that -order, the Order
of Washington issuing a .guarantee
slip to attach" fo xertlflcatek. Thi Or-
der'of Washington has been In exlstft

tary. J. L. Mitchell. The officials 6f
the newly combined "order have the op
tion on Alder-street property, where
they purpose eTectlngf-permanont head

H. Schively, ot Washington", when In
formed that the new deal, was abput
completed, wrote to Supreme .Secretary
and, Manager Mitchell':
"I am sure that the amalgamation
will give confidence to the member

Appeals to the Law From the De
cision ofjClty- Engineer Wanzcr
"Who' Placed Him on "
Daj-Js Pay. ','- a.
John Rankin, an -tmployeJn the office of
"the City Engineer, yesterday filed suit In
the State Circuit Court to test the civil
service law of the Cijy of Portland. The
"proceeding Is" one ot mandamus and Is
directed against CIty Engineer Wanier.
The case was set for "hearing by -Judge
Clelarid on June e.
Rankin was employed as an Inspector
and he was displaced by City Engineer
Wanzer. and Amos S. Groce appointed in
his stead.
In his complaint he avers that he passed
a civil service examination as an Jnspec
tor, grade C, class 10. division C, at a sal
ary fixed at T.J a month; "and was by the
Civil Service Commission "on September
28, 1905, certified to the City Engineer for
such position, and was aaolnted by Will
iam C. Elliott, then City Engineer, on iboij
same date, and has since been -eiaployed
as Inspector, and has never been remocd
from class or division, and has faithfully
performed his duties. -
The civil service provision of the city
charter Is recited In the complaint, part
of which reads: "No officer or employe
of the city shall draw, sign,. countersign
or Issue any warrant or order, .for the
payment of, or pay any salary or compen
sation to any person In the classified civil
service who Is not certified by the Com
mission tothe Auditor as having been
appointed or empldyed In pursuance of
this article, and of the regulations in
force thereunder. Any person entitled to
be certified as aforesaid may maintain a
proceeding by mandamus to compel the
issuance of such certificate."
"It shall be the 3uty:of the Civil Saryice
Commission to prepare, continue and keep.
In their office a complete roster; oC all" per
sons In the classified civil service of the
city. This roster shall be open for Inspec
tion at all reasonable hours. ' It shall
show In reference to each ofsaId-persons
his name, pie Sate of appointment, to iOr
employment In such service, his compen
sation, the title of the place or office fie
holds, the nature of the duties, thereof
and the date of any termination ' of such
Rankin alleges that In the month of
March, last Charles Wanzer. City Engi
neer, Informed him that during that
month and thereafter he would not be en
titled to the sum of $75 a month, allowed
by the civil rervice regulations, but only
$2.50 a day. Rankin avers that this action
was not made on any order of the Com
mon Council or Civil Service Commission,
and was wholly i and absolutely without
authority, and was made after no investi
gation into the -merits or differences of
plaintiff, and was made in utter disregard
of the civil service rules.
Rankin asserts that Wanzcr placed him
pn the pay roll for $2.50 a day for the
time actually employed, and that City
Auditor Devlin threatens to approve such
action without having received any au
thority from the Civil Service Commis
sion. The court Is asked to direct City
Engineer Wanzer to place Rankin's name
on the payroll as Inspector for '$75' a
month, and to order Auditor Deylln to
draw a warrant accordingly.
When Rankin was reduced the 'State
ment was made that-it was .because Grace-
was a married man, while -Rankin Is sin
gle and It was proper that their places
be changed about.
Orpheum Gets Out Injunction.
The Orpheuni- Amusement Company,
which is seeking to set aside the. proceed
ings of the City Council revoking its bar
licenses, alleges that the Council has 'act
ed without legal authority. The com
plaint filed by the company through
James McDevitt. the president, and J.R.
Carson, secretary., sets forth that the
theater had two bars, and In April last
paid for two licensis, which the Council
attempted to revoke on Wednesday last.-It-
Is averred that the Council gave no
notice to the company of the Intention to
revoke the licensee, and voted to do so
in violation of the jlghts of the plaintiff,
and without, offering to return any of the
money paid. The OrpheUm people allege
that they are entitled to a. hearing and
that the alleged revocation of the
licenses was unlawful and Illegal, and If
allowed to stand would cause irreparable
loss to their business. Pending a decision
of the case, Chief of Police Hunt has been
enjoined by Judge Sears from interfering
with the sale of llquorin the house.
