IRREGULARITY , DISCOVERED
, IN 46TH STREET PUBLIC
. ' ' ' WHARF
. A pretty little episode occurred at
the commencement of the meeting
of the Common Council last night,
so tr frqirlM jKliiiaryf routine of
the regular c!tons that it came a
t pleasant surprise. On the mayor's
kik was a big bunch of flowers. '
"They are a niemento of the may
or'l silver wedding lait nlght,'f said
Dr. Henderson. "To those who not
fortunate to have been at the little
celebration of the anniversary ,, last
night," went on Dr. Henderaon, -."I
would like to say it was one of the
plcantst. occasion of my . life.
JAnd' those flower were brought, here
Htonight in a manner to place the sil
ver wedding . anniversary of the
mayor on record." Dr. Henderion
spoke feelingly 'and very fittingly
for several minules. . -.
Mayor Wise made a brief but very
happy response. He said he, would
long treasure hit memories ' of the
council and the friends in the coun
cil. ' '- .!..! -. .
Then tlx council got down to
business, and transacted a vast
amount of work in business-like
manner.' Several matters of more
than ordinary importance arose.
' Dr. Logan who has displayed in
terest in the project f the ; con
struction of the public wharf at
46th atreet, and the improvement of
the street there, caused some little
surprise by the announcement that
the proceedings had been discovered
to be "irregular" and that therefore
the whole matter was not on a
proper legal basis. It seem that by
the inadvertance of someone the
grade of the street had never be;n
re-established iin accordance f with
the need of 'the contemplated im
provement, and the re-establishment
of "the grade nof being "part of the
proceedings they"were " ' eonsequntly
rrotlliir nt rtil -J;' .f.
Thus the project comes to sud
den and somewhat , inglorious end,
The threatened litigation by , prop
erly owners need not be brought,
and Contractor Lebeck is also freed
from a somewhat embarrassing situ
ation, To formally free him from
hi real or presumed ' contract with
the city it was moved and carried
that he be f feed from hia obligation
Dr. Logan made a '-motion, however,
that ttept be taken to estabb'sb the
grade there5 and this waa carried.
The discovery that there was ir
regularity in tne proceedings may
perhap be termed a tomewhat lucky
strike, and probably - one or more
members of , the; city administration
will feel that the city has got out of
a rather embarrassing - situation
without going to the end of a la
suit to find out what the trouble was
all about. '
(The council also ordered that the
improvement of the alleyway where
on the street ears run from 38th to
42nd street be ordered carried ou.
The contract is to be let t once and
is to be completed before March 1.
The improvement is to be 20 feet in
width. This part of the highway was
getting in dangerously bad shape
and the improvement was said to be
THE DOG POUND
Chief of Folice Oberg had a griev
ance. Some one broke down the
walls of the little old place that does
duty as t(te city pound on Monday
night and gave freedom to some
dogs and a cow. He therefore put
it up to the council, stating that re
pairs or a new pound is required.
The coudncilmen saw the justice of
this requisition and , referred the
matter to the proper committee with
power to act.
THE IRVING SLIDE.
In"Tcommuhication to the cottn-'
cil Fred Warren, whose beautiful
home is being slightly affected by
the slide, enclosed a report made to
him by G. B. Hegardt, the Portland
civil engineer, in relation to the
matter, and the Hegardt report, an
interesting and valuable one, was
read to the council by the , clerk,
Judge' Anderson. .

safety 'the first "thing Wi be done ia
to itoo the sluicintr away of the
ground at the foot, or "toe" of, the
slide-'-tnat is, at 'the waterfront on
Scow Bay. Ait suggest! that this
should be ; stopped ; at -nce -and
should not be permitted to be re
sumed, inasmuch as if thia 'ground
is taken away it simply removea the
support of the big mast of earth
niehind it and is very likely to cause
much further damage. While Mr.
Hegardt'a suggestion In thia re
spect terns of force, it may appear
doubtful that it take into consid
eration the seven or eight little
homes at the bottom of the slide.
They are in immediately danger.
The "tie" that the engineer speaks
of is slowly but surely crushing
these modest little homes. This
"toe" is forcing them into the river.
Hence it is that the, property
owners at the bottom of the slide
are working "ceaselessly to remove
the "toe", though at the same time
they are by their action apparently
increasing the danger to the prop
erty at the top of the hill. The sit
uation evidently is not a simple
Mr. Hesrardt suggests that in or
der to further increase the support
from the "toe," or bottom of the
slide, action should be taken to' level
off such portins of the sliding hill
side as are not already self draining,
closing in all cracks and fissures,
and to prove a system of drains or
depressions which shall carry off the
water to the sides of the slide and
away from the center, utiier rec
ommendations of a similar nature
were made by Mr. Hegardt. He re
ferred to the cracks reported by
property owners In the land above
Irving avenue. He suggests the citv
should take action in the matter, as
matter of such public import that
(the local property owners should not
Mof right be called upon to bear the
whole burden. ' '
D. Hi. Welch, who owns property
at the foot of the slide, address the
council after the reading of Mr.
Hegardt'a report. ; He did not hesi
tate to criticize it. He said it might
be an excellent report considered in
relation to, the saving of "one man's''
property, but Mr. Welch did not
deem it of such a comprehensive
nature that "It provides a good plan
for all the properties involved. Mr.
Welch's remarks were apparently
marked with .. much good sense and
practical understanding. He said
that in his opinion the whole matter
of the slide would never be settled,
and settled right, until a street was

An. interesting matter arose as an
incidental. An ordinance'was intro
duced, after careful ' preparation by
the city attorney, to control blasting
'in the city. . The ordinance it plain
ly an excellent one, and "very badly
'needed. How some contractors can
be so stupid as one or more have
been in handling blasting in the city
is hot very plain.; Mr. Abercrombie,
the city attorney, stated that in his
opinion the local alide in front of
his property has been caused by this
heavy blasting.' He said that Engi
neer Hegardt agreed with him in
this. ' Mr.. Hegardt also agreed that
Jhe heavy blasting that has been go
ing on in that neighborhood has had
