Says Award of Sixteenth Street
Contract Was Regular in
Councilman Fred Wright, of the
Third ward la emphatic In his denun
ciation of the attorneys who have filed
the Injunction suit In the matter Of the
Sixteenth street Improvement. The com
plaint Insinuates in unmistakable
terms that the members of the street
committee were In collusion with the
contractor and that fraud character
ized thf award of the contract.
An Astorian representative found
Councilman Wright at work yestwday
on the Fifteenth street Improvement.
Asked to make a statement of the facts
In the case, Mr. Wright said:
"I have read the newspaper accounts
of the suit filed In the Injunction case,
and am In position to state positively
that the allegations, with the single ex
ception of the error made by City Sur
veyor Tee in the estimate of th exca
vation, are wholly false. As to this or
ror, I will say that it was not discov
ered until two days after Mr. Robinson
and mytelf, consuming a majority of
the street committee, entered Into the
contract with W. A. Goodln. The er
ror occurred In the estimate made for
the crossing at Irving avenue. The es
timate differs from the amount of work
to be done by TOO or 800 yards. Mr. Tee
discovered his mistake and at once ac
quainted us with the matter. The con
tract had then been signed. The al
legation that we knew of this error is
-"In every manner the improvement
was regularly undertaken- It is charg
ed that no regular survey was made,
but this, too, is untrue. Mr. Tee made
his official survey and set out his grade
stakes which can be seen today.
. "It is set forth that the street com
mittee held no regular meeting. As
matter of fact, ChalrmanBurns and my
self were present at the time the bids
were opened a week ago Monday. We
had advertised the time of opening the
bids for three days, and several per
sons wpre present Monday afternoon.
There were three bona fide bids not
one, as the complaint says. The bid
ders were Messrs. Goodln, Palmberg
and Gerdlng. All the bids were regu
lar In form, accompanied by bonds. Mr.
Goodin's offer waa lowest, and Chair
man Burns told him to go ahead with
the work. I might explain that con
tracts are usually signed a few days af
ter the bids are opened. The lowest re
sponsible bidder gets the work, and
then the contracts are drawn up. The
Sixteenth street contract was drawn up
by Deputy City Attorney Curtis and
presented to me for signature two days
after the bids were opened. Mr. Rob
inson signed It the same day. I learned
later that Mr. Burns did not attach his
signature, though for what reason
I cannot say, as he told Mr. Goodln in
my presence to proceed with the im
'AH the bids opened were below the
surveyor's estimate. I am engaged In
street repairing and know what I am
talking about when I say that the es
timate was reasonable. Much of the
street is rock and the cost of excavat
ing It Is greater than is the case where
loose earth Is to be graded. Mr. Goodin
told me that he would not hare been
able to make his low offer had it not
been that he could use the rock for pav
ing the street, and were it not that he
contracted for his cement at a very low-
figure. The contract price Is quite
The Insinuation that I, as a member
of the street committee or as a private
cltlxen, was 'nvolved in any way, at
any time, in any questionable trans
action, affecting the Improvements of
streets or inything else, is a deliberate
and malicious falsehood, and I am anx
ious to brand the authors of the insin
uation as wilful and malicious falsifiers
I will stake my reputation for honesty
against any of the remonstrators.
"It Is stated that I have been In the
employ of Contractor Goodin. This Is
likewise false. I have never in my life
worked a single hour for him. For the
past year I have b?en employed by C.
G. Palmberg as his forenfan.
"You can quote me as saying that the
suit is merely the result of an effort on
the part of the property owners to
throw the cost of the Improvement on
the city. This sort of business Is what
placed the city of Astoria $200,000 tn
Mr. Goodin expresses regret at the
failure of the remonstrators to ask for
a temporary Injunction. Had this been
done, he says, the " property owners
would have been liable for damages
The suit is the talk of the city and
property owntrs are manifesting great
interest In Its outcome.
LOST HER SISTER
Miss Hazel Woods, alias Miss Ida
Smith, was up before Police Judge An
derson yesterday afternoon to explain
her unladylike conduct the previous af
ternoon. Miss Woods-Smith is the wo
man who was conveyed to the city jail
In an express wagon after creating a
scena on Commercial street. She told
the court she had come to Astoria In
quest of a lost sister, and tnat, falling
to locate the missing one, she had im
mersed her sorrows in the usual liquid.
Judge Anderson imposed a fine of 320,
agreeing to suspend It on condition that
she leave the city. Having no means,
the woman is still at the city jail.
