Chapter A F & A M of this city,
Town has been extremely dull this week.
The bridges are nearly all disabled, and the
roads so badly cut up that it is almost im
possible for wagons to come over them.
Mr. Frank ltankin, the photographer,
Lane oeunty ha the reputation of being
the beat supplied with bridge of any couuty
in th State. Although she has several hun
dred miles of river tn her limit, there i
but on ferry of any importance maintained
withiu her boundaries. Site ha built five
covered truss bridges, besides a number of
less important ones. It is not surprising
therefore, that in case of high water like that
just psd, some of the bridge should far
badly. The bridge ncros the Willamette at
Springfield three and one-half mile above
Eugea was floated or forced from its piers
by drift Friday evening Jan. Nth. The first
rise of water bad weakened it considerably
at it was only about three feet above the
water, and caught the force of drift that
filled the river. The second rise proved die
astrous and it floated down the river about 9
o'clock of that eveuing. The abort truss
spans lodged short distance below, aud are
comparatively nuiujured. The main span
went about three miles below Eugme where
it lodged upon the poiut of an island the
sides being cruihed together. It Is not
yet known whether it can be reconstructed.
This bridge was built iu the summer of 1874
by the l'acilh Bridge Co. of Saa Francisco,
and. wan of the design known as Smith's
patent truss. The original oat was $12,000
but siuce then repairs have been made which
would iucreas t e cost to $13,000. It con
sisted of oue maiu tipan entirely covered 232
feet long, and two small tru ts spaus each 80
feet loni and about 160 fret of approach, a
total length of 332 feet. The pier on the
west side remaim but the ono on the east
side went dowu. Siuce the above was writ
ten we learn that parties got to the point
upon which the bridge is stranded and found
that the chords are not injured except four
pieces of timber iu the upper chords. The i
lateral brace are ruined but the upright
brace and post are nearly all in good
shape. The bridge across the Willamette at
Eugene lost about 160 feet of approach ou
the North end. A channel waa formed that
damaged the piling upon which the short
truss span rests, and left it in a precarious
condition. It will probably be three weeks
before this bridge cau be repaired for travel,
a ferry will however be pat in at Springfield.
Several of the bridges on the Long Tom and
nrth, the Richardson aud the Gibson
bridges are gone. The plank roadway over
the Coyote bottom Was also badly damaged.
The two McKenzie aud the Coast Fork
bridges escaped unhurt. A'nnmber of small
er bridges aud culverts have been destroyed.
