JQiN TO BRIDGE
Portland Consolidated Railway
Company May Dnlte With
the Hill Interests.
LOCAL MEN ARE RETICENT
Representatives, of the Eastern Own
ers of Street Transportation
System Expected - Here
"Wednesday to Decide.
TOR A JOINT BRIDGE.
Seomlniflj- authentic Information ha
been received , in Portland that the
owners of the Portland Consolidated
Railway Company have under xn
filderatjon an arrangement with the
controlling interests in the Portland Sc.
Sattle Railroad Company by which
the bridce across the Columbia River
will be used Jointly by the electric and
Hteam roads. Representatives of E. TV.
Clark & Co. and of the Sellgman In
terests are expected to arrive in Port
land Wednesday to decide upon thli
and o:hr projected expenditures In '
the plans for enlarging the system.
The coming of members of the banking
house of E. W. Clark & Co.. of Philadel
phia, and representatives of J. & W. Sellg
man & Co., of New York, -which has been
announced as preliminary to reorganiza
tion of the Portland Consolidated Railway
Company, may have a much wider signifi
cance. It Is reported that the trip Is to be
made for the purpose of considering a
proposition that the Portland Consolidated
Hallway Company operate electric cars
across the" new railroad bridge that Is to
span the Columbia River, the structure to
"be made a joint creation of the respective
Interests to be thereby benefited.
The visiting bankers will arrive in Port
land 'September 11; to remain lor sotno
time, and during their stay will go over
the property which was acquired a few
months ago' lor $6.000,000, . and which has
developed enormous earning power during
the last six months. At the tirng the
property was bought from Its founders It
was announced that improvements oil
great importance to the future develop
ment of Portland werfe in contemplation,
but with the exception of a large ex
penditure for track betterments, new
equipment, and beginning of construction
on the new line to the Columbia River
ferry at Vancouver, the public has not
been advised of other plans. Several
months ago it was rumored that the op
tion obtained and afterwards closed on
Shaw's Island was the first step in the
direction of definite design toward bridg
ing the mighty river of the Northwest,
"but at that time It was positively denied
that any such project had been consid
ered. Reason for Joint Scheme.
While the Idea of a street railway cor
poration bridging the Columbia was ridi
culed as an enterprise so great that it
Iiad taken years for a transcontinental
railroad to decide upon such a step, and
it was then undecided, it does not seem at
all ridiculous that the construction of a
Joint bridge is a strong probability. The
Hill railroad companies have decided to
Abridge the Columbia, because the cost , of
operating and maintaining a train ferry
fully- justifies the expenditure, and the
Portland Consolidated Railway Company
would be amply repaid for its interest In,
such a structure by abolishment of Its:
ferry at Vancouver, since the passenger
and freight charge could be made for the
bridge just as well as for the ferry.
When told last evening of Information
recolved by The Oregonlan that cars of
the Consolidated Company are to cross
the Columbia on a bridge. Manager F. I.
Fuller said he knew of no project for the
company to build a bridge. Asked If there
was not some probability that a railroad
bridge would be used also for electric cars,
"I cannot say about that. Steam rall
Toads and electric roads are not inclined
to coalesce to any extent. The party to
arrive next week represents the interested
financiers, and I do not know what will
be the personnel of the entire party. They
will complete the reorganization during
their stay in Portland."
C. M. Huggins, for 15 years auditor of
the Generaj Electric Company, has been
.appointed treasurer of the- Portland Con
solidated Railway Company, and will have
active charge of that department! He
will have supervision of the auditing de
partment and discharge the duties of
treasurer, the appointment already having
FINE EXHIBIT OPEN TODAY
Portland Art Association Welcomes
The building of the Portland Art Asso
ciation. Fifth and Taylor streets, will be
open today from 2 to 5 o'clock. The col
lection of water-colors, pastels, oil
sketches and original illustrations is a
section, of the fine arts exhibit of the
Lie wis and Clark Exposition, for which
the association have given their' galleries
to be opened to the public every weekday
during the Fair. Since, however, there
are many lovers of pictures unable to
give the time during the week, the gal
leries are also open these last two Sun
days before the Exposition closes. The
attendance lasrt. Sunday showed that the
opportunity was appreciated.
Those who have not yet visited the ex
hibition are reminded that among the
more notable works are pastels by Degas
and William Chase, from tlfc Crocker col
lection; fine water-colors by Winslow
Homer, good examples of Chllde Hassim,
Jules Guerin, Palthast, Breckinridge,
Prendergast and many other well-known
Americans. The oil studies of Violet Oak
ley for her decorations at Harrlsburg,
beautiful in color and decorative design,
are also remarkable for the character and
suggestlvenesh shown in a mere sketch.
The original drawings for illustration by
Jessie Wilcox Smith, Charlotte Harding
and others have attracted much attention,
and to students of art the many out-of-door
sketches in" oil by well-known land
scape painters are most .instructive as
well as delightful.
Such opportunities must come rarely on
this Coast, and no one who loves good
work can afford to miss this one. S

Co. has decided to close this Sunday night.
and will at once begin the work of en
tirely reconstructing their beautiful re
sort. The change will entail an additional
outlay of over $230,000, those interested
firmly contemplating making The Oaks
the equal of anything in America outside
of "Dreamland." in New York. First of
all, there will be a double track direct to
the main entrance, so that the round trip
can be made In less than 'ten minutes'
time. All the buildings will be new. Are-'
prooi ana nanasome in appearance. Tne
grounds will be beautifully laid out, so
that a magnificent garden of flowers will
occupy an important place in the park.
There will be a baseball park, a large
roller skating rink, a handsome dancing
pavilion .with a cafe connected, fully 20
of the newest amusement devices, that
have never been seen putsldc of New York
or Chicago, .and the present Oaks Tav
ern will be enlarged and beautified to seat
comfortably not less than 3000 persons. An
additional leature will be a new Summer
theater for the presentation of light opera
and the latest musical productions and
grand water carnivals, all of which will
be at strictly popular prices. When the
new electric light power plant Is com
pleted at Estacada, the company will be
able to llght'up The Oaks and the entire
surrounding country. -Fully 60.000 electric
lights will be utlllred for the illuminating
of the grounds and the buildings. Among
the novel features will "The Old Mil;."
for which a running stream around the
entire grounds will be constructed to
carry passengers In unique boats, and
while traveling on the water be able to
witness beautiful scenes and sights from
the various countries of the world.
The season at The Oaks will doubtless
end tonight in a blaze of glory. It affords
the public the last opportunity to enjoy
the many amusement features and a
dance in the spacious pavilion. Children
will be admitted free today (Sunday).
That there will be an Enormous crowd
goes, without saying. The O. W. P. Sz
Ry. Co. certainly deserves the praise of
the entire community In its efforts to give
the people one of the cleanest, best-conducted
and most beautiful resorts that
there is in this country.
SONS OF THE REVOLUTION

VERY SICK MAN
Strong Constitution .May.
of Disease. -
FRIENDS MORE HOPEFUL
Since the Sinking Spell .of Saturday,
Morning He Has Rallied, and
Physician and Attendants
Arc Encouraged. ,
The St. Vincent's Hospital authorities'
report that, while Bishop O'Reilly la 'still
inj a very grave condition, ail symptoms
are in his favor, and the earnest hope
that he will recover Is well founded. Pub
lic concern in the illness of this prominent
Cthollc dignitary is widespread, and
there Is constant Inquiry regarding his
condition. The sinking spell which the
patient suffered early yesterday morning
temporarily alarmed the attendants, and,
while the symptoms were, not quite so
distressing as reported at the time, "the
physicians were notified, and every atten
tion possible administered' to relieve his
sufferings. The fact that hewaa ill three
weeks before going to the hospital, an
that he has successfully battled with
three more weeks of fever since arriving
there, would indicate that hla -vigorous,
constitution, is standing the ravages 'of
the disease unusually well, and that he
has a good chance of recovery. Late yes
terday afternoon his pulse and tempera
ture were both nearly normal, and al
though the patient was very weak, this
fact made his nurses very hopeful.
Archbishop Christie Calls.
Among the many prominent visitors who
cauea at tne Hospital yesterday to. pay
ineir respects to the sick bishoo was
Archbishop Alexander Christie. The arch
bishop- had been much alarmed at the re
ports . concerning the bishop's weakened
condition, and was much gratified to find
that he was doing fairly well and had
a good fighting chance .for Tils life. The
Sisters at St. Vincent's are doing every
thing possible to aid in the recovery of
their distinguished patient, and the physi
cian. Dr. K. A. J. Mackenzie, Is in con
His Career In the Church.
Bishop O'Reilly was castor of St.
Mary's, Alblna, for nine years previous to
his consecration as bishop of Baker City,
and, was pne of the mosCpopular mem
oera or. tne catholic clergy In this cltv
during that residence. From the time ho
entered the priesthood, he has been un
usually active In various lines of church
work, and his career has been' Re
markable from -tho fact that he "was
elevated to a bishopric after having served
but one pastorate. He has always been
a temperance worker of note ana ndM
especial attention to echools and the
training of children In his faith. Th
education of children to a thorough knowl
edge ot Catholic doctrines he always con
sidered of paramount importance to the
upbuilding of the church, and never neg
lected this duty. He has a warm place In
the hearts of Portland people, the noor
and unfortunate being as close to him as
their more prosperous brothers. Inquiries
irom -ye jiaKer city diocese as to the
bishop's condition are quite as numerous
as those from Portland friends. x
BROXBBRG TESTIFIES HE SAW
BONANDO ATTACK DEFENDANT.
Strear. Testlaeay AnUst the State
Givea by Alleged Wham
Contradicting many other witnesses
who saw the killing of Carlo Bonando
by - Louis Ferraris, Jacob Bromberg
testified In Judge Sears' court yesterday
that Just prior to the shooting' Bonando
viciously attacked Ferraris and beat
him with his fists. Bonando afterward
took something from his pooket which
witness did not see, and Ferraris drew
revolver and shot Bonando. While
Bonando was beating Ferraris the lat
ter endeavored to push him away. The
article Bonando removed from his
pocket is supposed to have been the
large pocket-knife, which has been In
troduced In evidence, but the witness
could not swear that he saw a knife.
Bromberg la 28 years old. and is em
ployed as a salesman by A. Rosensteln.
He testified that he was on his way
home from work on his bicycle, and on
reaching Fourth and Sheridan streets
observed a man abusing another in a
loud voice. Bromberg said he stopped
and the men proceeded down Sheridan
street in the direction of Third, and the
large man, Bonando, struck the small
er, Ferraris, four or more heavy blows
with his fist. The shooting occurred
about 40 fCet farther down the street.
The witness declared that he followed
the two men on seeing that they were
engaged in a quarrel, and was close to
them when' the shooting took place. He
plainly saw all tha,t happened. ,
Deputy District Attorney Moser sub
jected Bromberg to a rigid cross-examination,
and succeeded in mixing him
up somewhat as to the positions occu
pied by Bonando nnd Ferraris, but on
the whole Bromberg adhered to his evi
dence a first given. He spoke in a loud
voice and did not at any time become
confused. Mr. Moser asked him why
he had not told any one before regard
ing his presence on the scene, and
Bromberg responded that he had re
lated the facts to his wife and to his
father-In-law, Isaac Dautoff. He did
not tell any of the officers of the law
for the reason that his wife advised
him not to get mixed up In the case.
Mr. Dautoff. he said. Informed Albert
Ferrera; defendant's counsel, four days
ago, and tfat vu how lie was called
as a witness. Bromberg said Imme
diately after the shooting .he pointed
out Ferraris to Mr. Duncan and Joseph
Coffey as the man who did the deed. Ho
did not see John Kratsch, who was
close fey when the shots were fired.
Nco rr the witnesses for the. prosecu
tion saw Mr. Bromberg, and Ir. Mpser
Will, no doubt. Interrogate them fur
ther upon that subject.
John Kratsch, who was an eye wit
ness, gave Important testimony for the
state. He said he stood not more than
25 feet away when Ferraris shot five
times at Bonando. Every shot took ef
fect. The men were ten or 12 feet apart,
and Bonando did not attack Ferraris,
He saw nc knife in Bonando's hand.
'Walker's Contempt of-'Court.
J. Walker, in business at 1C Sixth
street North, was before Judge Frazer
yesterday morning to show cause why he
should not be" punished for contempt. In
a suit brought by G. M. Klser several
weeks ago. Walker was enjoined from
selling certain souvenir articles, on the
ground that Walker, under his lease, was
prohibited from -selling tbi goods men
tioned, for the reason that a. near-by
store was dealing In them. Dan J. Ma
larkey, representing Klser, told the court
Walker had flagrantly violated the Injunc
John DItchburn, attorney, for Walker,
entered a denial, saying it was difficult' to
understand what articles were Included
in the order of Injunction, and Walker
might Inadvertently have broken it In one
or two Instances. Mr." Malarkey asserted
that when John Grussl, Deputy. Sheriff,
served the court's order. Walker told him
he would not obey IL The case was set
for hearing Monday at 3 o'clock.
Rope .Was- Too Weak.
Because a rope brqke while a safe was
being lowered from the third story of the
Stearns building, causing the safe to fall
to tne basement below, tne Oregon Auto
Dispatch Company began suit against the
Portland Cordage Company in the State
Circuit Court yesterday .for 5800 damages.
The accident occurred in March. 190G. The
complaint recites that the ATlto Dispatch
Company purchased a 'rope from the de

safe, which weighted about 4 COO pounds,
and that the. auto company"rolIed upon,
