Madison Bridge Will Be Fin
ished by September 1.
STew River Crossing Will Be More
Than 3 Feet Wide Steel All
Ready for Superstructure,
and Mostly In Place.
Engineers on the new Madison-street
bridge estimate that the new span will
be completed and ready for regular
traffic by September 1. Work has been
progressing rapidly lately and now
three spans of the bridge are entirely
completed and live of the seven piers
are finished, with the work on one oth
er to be completed this week, and on the
seventh now under way, and to be fin
ished within three weeks.
Exceptional conditions in the channel
of the river this Spring are given as the
reason for the delay In the construction
of the sub-structure of the bridge, but
the special City Engineers In charge of
the work, Waddell and Harrington, say
that Robert Wakefield, the contractor
tor the sub-structure, has been pushing
the work as rapidly as could be expect
ed since river channel conditions have
become settled.
Much Work Irevolred.
These piers represent a vast amount
of work. First of all a bole is dug in
the river bed to a dpth of 25 feet, in
"Which is then sunk the box form for the
concrete. Piles. 105 in number, are
then sunk around each pier, 40 feet far
ther down and the box is then pumped
out arid filled In with concrete until it
Is brought within- two feet of the low
water surface, after which the shaft
form is put in and filled with cement.
As soon as these piers are completed
the superstructure can be placed on
the bridge. This, it is estimated, will
require an additional 30 days at least.
The four piers on the East Side are
completed and the spans are in and the
pier on the west bank is also completed
and the false work is now being put in
for the superstructure. The United En
gineering & Construction Company,
contractor for the superstructure, has
had all the steelon hand for some time,
and has been- following closely on the
heels of the pier workers. The preo
soted! timbering for the floors is now
on the way from Seattle. Steel work
will start on the west approach this
week. The material is all on the east
side of the river, and will be brought
across on the large barges employed in
the construction work.
Xanie to lie' Changed.
The 'bridge will have 3000 tons of
steel, "or nearly .double the amount in
the Morrison bridge. It will be 10 feet
wider than the Morrison bridge, being
63 feet 8 inches wide, or as wide as
many of the city streets. The length
will be 2162 feet. The cost will be
$45iJ.000. According to E. F. Howard,
civil engineer associated with Waddell
& Harrington, and personally supervis
ing the construction of the new bridge,
it would now cost at least $75,000 more
for the city to buiid, this same bridge.
Mr. Howard says the contracts were let
at the most opportune time possible,.

and that the increased cost of materials
would not now allow bids within $75,000
of the figures obtained.
The official name of this bridge is the
Hawthorne avenue bridge. When the
old Madison-street bridge was torn out
it went entirely into history. The Port
land Railway, Light & Power Company
had a contract with the city to run its
cars across the Madison-street bridge
for $100 a month. Then the city con
demned the old bridge and wrecked it,
and when a new structure was built it
received the name of the Hawthorne
avenue bridge, and the streetcar com
pany was called upon to pay an annual
rental of $15,000. To this the streetcar
company has not as yet agreed, and the
question may have to be settled in the

ROSEBURG, Or., July 2. (Special.)
Alleging himself to be a representa
tive of the Statesman Publishing Com
pany, of Salem, and of Crocker & Co.,
lithographers, of San Francisco, C. E.
Young visited Roseburg a few days
ago and induced J. D. Zurcher, man
ager of the Commercial Abstract- Com
pany, to endorse a-sight draft on the
latter firm for $54. He said that he
had about $60 due as commission but
could not collect it unless some respon
sible person endorsed the paper.
As soon as Mr. Zurcher discovered
that the draft had been refused he
caused a warrant to be issued and
Young was arrested at Medford today.
He will be brought here tomorrow. He
is accused of obtaining money under
false pretenses.

Reinforced Concrete Structure Is
Petitioned for toy Improve
ment Association.
Residents of Mount Tabor are making;
a determined effort to have the school
board put a modern, fireproof building
on the Mount Tabor school site, which
has an area of about three acres. Reso
lutions in which it is explained that a
reinforced concrete building can be con
structed at an advapce of only 35 per
cent of the cost of an ordinary wooden
building, have been passed by the Mount
Tabor Improvement Association, and will
be presented to the members of the Board
of Education at their next meeting.
It is pointed out by the residents of
Mount Tabor who, are interested In the
matter that the money saved in usual
cost of repairs for a wooden building
would more than make up for the addi
tional 35 per cent that the fireproof build
ing would cost. One of the chief reasons,
however, for desiring a building of this
nature, is for its sanitary arrangement.
The resolutions passed by the Mount
Tabor Improvement Association follow:
Resolved, That we earnestly protest, on both
sanitary bjv& economical grounds, against
Bald proposed action of the chool board and
ask that the question of the cost of fire
proof construction for the proposed building
and also the relative cost" of maintenance of
fiuch construction, be thoroughly investigated
by the board before final action is tftken in
Half Price.

said matter, and also the question of the
propriety of commencing the construction
with wood of a building: which will have to
be completed with some other material. And
be- it further
Resolved, That if it be impracticable at this
time to commence such construction with fire
proof material, we think that the best inter
ests of the citizens of Mount Tabor would be
subserved by delaying- commencement of the
work until next Fall or "Winter, if it is
probable that a fireproof building: can then
be given us.
In speaking of the matter, John H.
Haak, president of the Mount Tabor
Improvement Association, said yesterday:
"The school board has planned to use
the old building in connection with a
small wing that they plan to build on
the new site purchased a few months
ago. This Is exactly what we wish to
avoid. We do not wish to continue to
use the old building longer than is abso
lutely necessary, and we desire that the
board plan and build a modern, commo
dious building on the new site rather
than to continue to use the' old building,
and the residents of Mount Tabor assem
bled in their Improvement Association
have passed the following resolution."

Auto-Owners Ship Cars to Gcarliart
Bench Races.
Owing to bad roads caused by rains
in Columbia' and Clatsop counties, the
automobiles belonging to members of
the Portland Automobile Club which
are entered in the race to be held at
Gearhart July 4, were shipped to Gear
hart and the run overland was aban
doned. A pathfinder car was sent over the
road to Gearhart from Portland Fri
day and word was sent back that the
road was almost impassable.
The machines will be shipped to
r Gearhart today and the members- from
Portland will go down on, the train
to participate in the races.
Reports from Astoria say that about
40 machines will go to Gearhart from
that place and there will be at least
35 entries In the 14-mile straightaway
Gearhart Beach is 14 miles long and
about 600 feet wide at low tide, and
the surface of the ground is as hard
and smooth as a floor. The race will
end In front of the plaza of the Gear
hart Hotel in sight of the spectators
who will be on hand.
That a large crowd of people will go
from Portland to Gearhart is evidenced
by the fact that all the Pullman car
reservations had been taken Saturday
night, and it is expected that a special
car will have to be put on to accommo
date the traffic.
The Astoria & Columbia River Rail
road has offered a handsome cup which
will be the trophy for the race.
The following shipped their cars to
Gearhart today: J. L. Meier, A. L.
Mills, R. D. Inman, Kenneth Honeyman
and F. N. Clarke.
The party will return to Portland
Monday ' evening after the race. j
