admitted they had failed to pay th?

they had failed to comply with the
law and had been enjoying all the
the privileges of American citizenship,
Judge Goodman assessed each of
them $10.60! Had they paid their

To the Honorable Chairman and
Committee on Streets and Public
Ways of the City of Astoria: In ac
cordance with request, I have made
an mvT-stigation and consultation witn
your City Engineer to determine th..
cause of landslides in a portion of
Adair's Astoria and suuucst a eerier il
outline of a plan for stopping them.
There appear to be two drainatrc
oasins wncre trouble ousts, these two
basins being separated at the lower
end by a ridge which extends North
to I rankiin Avenue in the neighbor1
nood ot 'Jlnrty-sixih Street. Th
water ocurses 111 both these basins
run in a general direction from South-
cast to Northwest, from points South
of Irvinar Avenue.
basins the general conditions are
similar and I think the remedies
would be similar. It should be said,
however, that in the easterly one.
most of the water from which comes
down, 38th Street, conditions are not
nearly so bad as in the other, and the
occasion for radical changes does not
seem very pressing.
The cause of the trouble seems to
be twofold. First, the obstruction of
natural drainage by grading of lots
ami streets without the substitution of
adequate artificial drainage: second
the seepage of water confined by na
tural obstruction much further un the
hill, which will be discussed in deta-'l
TT., ., . .
unucr tne nrst ticadincr it ,m
evident that if the artificial drains pr
viaea were ever sufficient for th
4uiyuc lmcnaea, tney are now so
badly out of repair that thev no
lontrer serve tli nrmint
The most effective remedy orobahlv
consists of opening the natural water
courses, commenciiie at th. riv.r
front and digging trenches throncho:it
the entire length of the main water
hannels. These trenches should be
excavated down to some material im
pervious 1o water or, if this is im
practicable .to some material which
will furnish a stable and unyielding
ioundation for suitable drains. It
iso important that if closed drains
are, constructed they should be large
nough to allow for inspection and
cie.in-ng from the inside and strong
n-Tgli to allow for inspection and
Cleaning from the inside and strong
enough to withstand reasonable ores
sure from the unstable ground above
I understand one difficulty in the
way of this scheme would be the fact
that the two channels suggested could
not be constructed on streets but
would rnn diagonally across private
property. It will be exceedingly dif
ficult, however, to provide smitabb
drainage ky following street lines.
In the first place, such a system
e. on street lines would be partly in
excavation and partly on embark
ments. This is very likely to cause
breaks in drains of afty material, on
account of the difference in the solid
ity of the foundations.
In the second place, the square
turns at street corners are almost cer
tain to leak as soon as any deteriora
tion takes place in the drains.
In the third tilace. anv drains whirt
do not continuously follow the bot
tom of the main water courses "will
almost certainly fail to catch some of
the seepage water from the sides.
If some such scheme as above sug
gested were carried out throughout
this portion of the shdine districts
North of Irving Avenue, I think ther?
would be little further trouble from
the first of the causes mentioned.
It remains to consider the second.
An even casual inspection discloses
the fact that there are manv snrino-s
- 1 o
emcrcintf from the slopes of the hill.
the sources of which are not at first
apparent. A pretty thorough inves
tigaticn convinces me that these are
largely caused by the extensive
swamos Ivinc from about 400 .to 1000
feet South of Irving Avenue and from
350 to 400 feet above the. river and
shown on the map submitted by the
City Engineer with the report of Sep
tcmber 2, 1902. I do not'bclieve th
slides which are causing so much
trouble will be stopped till these
swamps arc thoroughly drained. So
far as we have been able to ascertain
by soundings within the limited tim
at command, the depth of these
swamps is from 20 to 25 feet. T
should recommend draining them at
two places, namely, at A and C on
the map above mentioned, bv'euttimr
down the natural outlets sufficiently"
below the bottoms of the swamps' tr
al.'ew all the water free outlet. 'and
then . extendititr these channels
throughout the entire length of tho
in them it would be impossible to dig
trcnclic without practically removing
all the material in th.- swamps, as
would almost certainly come in from
the f Ctf at fast as removed.
If, however, the outlets are deepen.
cd as suggested, it is probable that
uc juaii-iai 111 me swamps would
decrease much in bulk, and increase
The foregoing has reference to the
district between 35th and 39th Streets,
South of Irving Avenue. There arc
small streams, also, comming out of
the hillsides from 33rd to 35th Streets
One of these originates in a small
swamp probably 400 feet above the
river, but the present indications are
that there is not much need of doinot
any more here than digging a arood
ditch at the outlet of this little swamp
and leading the water by some suit
able drain to a' connection with the
drainage mentioned above for this

ihis practice contributes towards th
trouble experienced from sliding
ground, besides being unsanitary.
It is barely possible that the open
ing ot some ot the steets running
North and South far enough up the
ill to tap the swamps would stop
some of the trouble. I do not believe
however, that this plan would be
nearly as effective as the one first
suggested for the objections above
mentioned to a drainage system con
fined to street lines. It seems to bi
essential to provide for the enterinir
upon private property to have any
dequate system of drainage and al
most equally essential to provide for
n elastic scheme of improvement
which may be suitably modified as the
It is practically impossible for any
one to estimate accurately before
hand what the" work will cost, and
draw up a contract that will cover all
possible contingencies. If this is at
tempted one of two things is almost
certain to result. Either the system
will not prove satisfactory because
obstacles will arise which could not
be foreseen and provided for befo.-e
hand, or in the attempt to guar!
against all possible happenings, a plan
will be provided which may subse
quently prove to be more expensive
than is necessary.
I have not undertaken in this report
to indicate cither by maps, or other
wise, the exact ahenement of the main
drains, still less of the laterals. Tt
do this with even reasonable accuracy
will require considerable work either
by boring or open trenches across
the probable channels, at frequent intervals.
In conclusion, I would sav in brief
that the trouble with Adair's Astoria
seems to be that, at j.resei;t, there is
pretty well developed irrigation
system, instead of a drainage system.
