Mr. .Wakefield states: "Early this
' morning by the order of the board of dl-
rectors I' put a padlock on the doors of
. . the Homer Buyers' office in the McKay
building and posted a "notioe that the
office would remain closed until next
'-"Tuesday."-.-
A visit to the office, found -them -open
and no one there professed to know any

locked. A fresh cut on the door,, how

Attorney Q. W. Joseph was employed

As to Baislag Contracts. ' i
' '"TheV first 'contracts to mature are
held by the Wakefield family. If It was
proper to raise these from $1,000 to $2,
000, :, as Wakefield says, ; It would be
proper to keep on raising the first few
contracts and let all the money col
lected apply; to tho payment of them,.
Then the other contract-holders wouia
get nothing. If the first contracts had
not been -raised from- $1,600 Instead tf
only three having matured there would
now be six matured contracts, f ; " 4
"I Investigated up to about ten con
tracts and found that they had all been
raised, and from appearances were con
trolled by Wakefield through hie
friends. The first, of course, was held
by Wakefield's wife; second by Wake
field's fatber-ln-law. The third seems
mixed up. ' First, it was held by J. Led
gerwood Udell, but It Is entered on the
books as belonging to J. Ledgerwood.
He was one of the first officers of the
company. , It was afterward , trans
ferred to A.tB. Frledensteln, an employe
of the Eiler Piano House, where Wake
field formerly worked. The contract
was later turned over, to J. H. Snively,
who told me that he was holding Jt for
Wakefield. , The money on this contract
has about all been paid up' , ,
K "Under the terms of the contracts. In
case of the death of a member his con
tract matures first. A contract-holder
has died, . and Frledensteln has secured
it f rem-t he widow.- -The-next-f our con
tracts are in the name of A. Jt Eiler."

. "While consulting with Mr. Wake
field to learn the .condition of the busi
ness for my client, he at times gave the
impression - that - he expected - the day
would come when he would control mil
lions.; He. figured that his interest In,
the concern represented $18,000. -Os
sifting .down .his alleged holdings, I
found Items that to me seemed absurd,
hut were taken seriously by Mr. Wake
field. He had all of his stock in the
company put in at full value.
"The only thing that can now be done
Is to reorganise the company on more
practical lines. This Is the object of
Mr. Harbaugh and Altaian keeping In
control, as they have been instrumental
In getting some people to put In their
money, and. they now will endeavor to
arrange affairs so that they will not be
losers." .. .... ; ..

MONEY WASTED IN
STREET REPAIRS
Portland, Feb. I To the Editor, of
The Journal. In ommon with practic
ally every . resident of the city.. I am
glad to see the street question being
Agitated, and. I hope that some practical
good will result therefrom. '
.I note, however, that the first criticism
calls forth a defense of existing condi
tions from Deputy City Engineer Scog
gin, to the effect that the taxpayer Is
getting what he pays for and won't per
mit high-class Improvements. In this,
to some extent, he Is right, tout his broad
generalisation is wrong. We are getting.
In all probability, what the specifications
call for, but .we are not getting what we
ought for our money. The specifications
simply cannot be right, or our residence
steets would not be tn the condition
they are. The very first requisite for a
pavement Is a surface that will shed,
not absorb, water, and a gutter that will
carry it off; while our macadam streets, -as
at present constructed, are as near
a sponge as they can well be. In other
places and countries good macadam
streets are built, and are satisfactory.
Why not here? I have been told by men
who have made a study of this work that
there are no reaspnshysuchaBlreet
could not be built here, and at much less
cost than we are now paying. The street
along the Thames embankment In Lon
don Is macadam, and I assure you It
does not look like ours, There will have
to be a change or ' we shall never have
good streets. -' v
If , the street department- think the
property holder is getting what he pays
for. I suggest thst they request the prop
erty owners on, Savler and Thurman
streets to express themselves'. ; Possibly
those living on Twenty-fourth street
might be Induced to say what they think
of the traction engine which dally grinds
and reduces to pulp the pavement along
that street snd covers every crosswalk
with a liquid msss of mud.
On Fourth street the property holders
paid for Vhlgh-class" treated wood block
pavement. They got It. except In the
center of the street, snd from about
Alder street north the manner in which
It is laid" without a crown has
not only produced a corduroy effect but
holds the water and will Inevitably rot
and destroy the balance of the pavement
This was not only wholly unnecessary,
but has been permitted to remain as laid
notwithstanding repeated protests '. of
property holders. : On the start It was
pointed out that It was wrong. The con
tractors said it would be harmful, but
the railroad company wanted to experi
ment and had their way. Here Is an
Instance of a high-class pavement go
ing to the dogs when It could easily be
corrected If those In power would In
sist on the first principles of good pav
ing being complied with. ; .
Nineteenth street has just been re
paired. The. roller Is just: off certain
portions of it. To my own knowledge
one large property holder has protested
against thq way the work was done and
the condition It was left In. and is golpg
to carry his protest further. ITIs name
will be given on application. Ask those
property holders if ther think they are
getting their , money's .worth. v
These instances might be multiplied
Indefinitely. Unless a man is hopelessly
blind mentally ss well as actually, he
must know something Is wrong in our
treatment of the street question, and we
hsve been foolish so often that It will
take something more than mere state
ment o restore confidence and to make
us believe we are getting our money's
worth. J. N. TEAU
. Portland, Feb. t. To the Editor of
The Journal. Noticing the remarks of
Mr. George Scoggln, SssistanC City En
glnerr, regarding the streets of Port

owners are getttna; lnwt th kind and

only streets thaf'they wish, I would like
to make a few remarks regarding this.
Having' quite a good deal Of property
under, my control which necessitates-my
giving this matter some 'attention. I
would like to reply by stating first, that
If this city had a competent man, some
one who knew a good street from a bad
one,-1 believe the property owners would
be more fortunate In getting value re
ceived for the amount of money paid for
street Improvements. Notable examples
of streets that I would call this gentle
man's attention ; to is 8avler street.
which Is a repair ; job, and after the
street being repaired it is in a worse
condition than It was before the repairs
were made. Thurman street, which Is a
new street, ' put down within the last
six months, and which cost me personal
ly 13,000. at the present time Is not
worth 25 cents on the dollar for Improve
ment '-"v '" ':.:;; "-?,'''hv."V;
Twenty-fourth street, which was for
merly a trood street aTid one tnrwhteh the"
authorities allowed a, traction engine
hauling five large wagons of gravel,
grinding this street to pieces and which
will necessitate an entirely new street
being put down before same can be put
back Into the original state.
I myself would rather .see . 6 hard
pavement put. down .even though the
cost would be 10 times as much as mac
adam,' because then I would be receiving
somevalue for my money. ; -
In'concluslon I would state that I
would rather take Tthe' .money that the
last improvements have cost me in street
repairs and ' throw flame,,; In the river,
thereby getting as much value for the
-: fit---
money as from the recent street; im
provements. , Yours truly, .
L. J.. GOLDSMITH.
Portland, Feb. To the Editor of
The Journal. I note m last evening's
Journal that as usual when any sugges
tion Is made touching the bad condition
of the streets and the miserable method
adopted In the so-called, "macadam im
provements," some official In the street
department lays the trouble on the prop
erty holder. -A striking Instance of so-
