By June 1 the work of constructing
Clatsop county's new court house will
be. well under way. Yesterday the
county court engaged Edgar M. Las
arua, prominent Portland architect,
to take charge of the construction work
and Mr. Laaarus Is now engaged In
preparing plans, in accordance with the
ideas given him yesterday by members
of the court. He expects to have the
preliminary plans prepared for the in
spection of Judge Trenchard and Com
missioners Toung and Clark by Febru
ary 20. and to finish the work of pre
paring the specifications within three
weeks or a month after that date.
When the matter was brought before
the court yesterday there was thorough
discussion as to whether the county
should ask competitive bids for plans
and specifications or employ an archi
tect to prepare plana according to the
views of members of the court and su
perintend the construction of the build
ing. There were four applicants for
appointment, Mr. Williams, Mr.
cbacht, Mr. Neer and Mr., Lasarus,
the two latter appearing in person. It
was decided by unanimous vote of tbe
court that an architect be employed
and Mr. Lasarus was unanimously
chosen. His compensation will be 3
per cent of the cost of the building and
he wlU prepare plans and superintend
the construction of the bulldlpj.
At ten conference between members
of the court and Mr. Lasarus the a ren
ted -was given an excellent Idea of
what was desired In the way of a new
county building. He returned to Port
land last night to prepare the prelim
inary plans, and members of the court
will visit his office on the SOth to exam
Ine the drawings. Should they meet
with approval, the architect will Im
mediately begin work upon the speci
fications. It the plans are not satis
factory, other - drawings will be sub
mitted to the court, and a satisfactory
set selected. t
As soon as the specifications are pre
pared, the court will advertise for bids
for the work, and It Is expected actual
work will have been begun by June 1. ,
. The Probsble Arrangement
County Judge Trenchard was seen
yesterday by an Astorian representative
nad asked for a statement as to toe
probable arrangement of the new build
ing. Judge Trenchard said:
"It Is Just a trifle too early as yet to
make any definite statement with refer
ence to the building. We will first ex
amine the plans of the architect before
reaching a final decision. I can, how
ever, give you a general idea of what
we expect to do.
"The court house will te of two
stories, a high, commodious basement,
and probably an attic. It Is the opin
ion of . members of the court that the
first storv and basement shall be of
stone and the second story And atfic
of pressed brick. ' It is our present In
tention to use the local gray stone for
tbe first story and basement Gray
stone and pressed brick will, we be
lieve, give the building a handsome ap
pearance and render it quite service
"The new court house will! occupy a
position in the north central portion
of the county property at Commercial,
Eighth, Duane and Seventh streets. It
wilt face upon Commercial street If
our present idea is carried out the
floor of the basement will be a little
below the present level of the lot,
which means that the court house will
stand well up above the street A large
stairway will lead to the main entrance
on Commercial street, and there will
probably be entrances on Seventh and
Eighth. The dimensions of the build
ing will be about 100x80 or 100x90.
Location of Offices.
"It is our Intention to locate on the
first floor the offices most used. The
clerk's office will be so arranged that
should the recorder ever again be made
a separate official, as was formerly the
case, he may have separate apartments.
The other offices to be located on the
first floor are those of the sheriff, the
assessor, the treasurer, and of the
county Judgf. The county court room
will likewise be located on the first
floor. - '
"On the second floor the largest space
will be apportioned for the circuit court
room. , It Is not our intention to pro
vide a very large circuit court room,
nor have we decided as yet whether or
not there are to' be galleries In this
portion of the building. The offices of
the county surveyor, district atomey
and county school superintendent will
be located on the second floor. There
will also be jury rooms and seyeraf ad
ditional private offices, as well as spare
rooms for use as hereafter may be de
termined. ' All the principal officers will
probably be provided with private offi
ces, . ' r
Unique Plan For Vault
; "Ample vault space will be one of the
principle considerations wtt,h us in the
consideration " of'1 the new building
It Is the idea of atl the members of the
court that the building should be pro
vided with one large vault extending
from the floor of the basement and up
wards through the center of the build
ing to the second floor. We consulted
with Mr. Lasarus regarding this matter.
He pronounced the idea a unique one
and said he never before, had heard it
advunced.but that he would make every
effort to so arrange the building as to
carry out our ideas. If we can pro
vide one large vault accessible from
the basement and from the second
floor, a very large saving can be effect
ed. The question Is as to whether or
not ail of the offices can be convenient
ly accomodated in this manner. , We
are determined to provide all the vault
space possible without cramping the
quarters of the officers. There will be
no need of vault space on the second
floor, for the reason that the officers
requiring vault space are the sheriff.
clerk, assessor and treasurer. We will
try our best to arrange for the one big
vault through the center of the build
ing, and have hope of succeeding.
New Jail Not Contemplated. .
"Construction of a new Jail Is not
at present contemplated by the county
court The exterior of a county Jail Is
a matter of little consequence. Interior
steel cells are the greatest requisite
and the present structure is equipped
as far as cells are concerned. The ap
pearance of the Jail can be improved
upon, and doubtless will be, but we con
template no large expenditure upon the
Where the Funds Will Come From.
There Is at the present time about
$8000 In the court house fund, and the
collections this year will net an add!
tlonal 19000. With this fund we will
commence work. The $9000 may be
paid In Installments by the taxpayers
under the new law, which provides for
half payments in April and the ad
ditional Installment In October. How
ever, two thirds of the taxes usually
come In during April, so there will be
no lack of funds to start with. After
the work Is once begun It will not
cease. We will Issue warrants agnlnst
the court house fund, although the
warrants will not differ from those Is
sued against the general fund.
"While we can give no accurate
statement as to the cost of the caurt
house, we figure that It will cn'.nl n
outlay of about $60,000, a-i 1 plum will
be prepared In accordance with this
general estimate. It is possible the osl
may be slightly greater, or somevlmt
less. The building ought to be com
pleted In a year's time, If nothing un
expected occurs." ,'''
