Experts Say the Closer Tanner Creek Sewer l Examined, the
Worse Will Appear the Work Done Under the Supervis
ion of the City Engineer's Office.
Contractors Who Were Given Permission to Patch Up Conduit Are
Said to Be Unable to Control Water Where It
Flows Over Imperfectly Laid Bottom.
Opinions re divers retarding th at
titude of Mayor Williams la the Tanner
creek sewer affair. He la being sev-erely
criticised by many for granting R. M.
Rlner a Bon. the contractors, permis
sion to go Into the sewer and make
repairs, and also for his decision to
appoint another Investigating commit
tee. They feel that he Is overstepping
his authority, as It Is claimed that tho
sewer has been accepted by the execu
tive board, am) the authority to (rant
permission to make repairs Is Tested In
that body.
There are others who are of the
opinion that the mayor was right when
he gave the contractors permission to
repair the sewer, as It Is In a very bad
condition, especially at the place where
the stone block pavement has been omit
ted. These people are also of the opin
ion that Mayor Williams Is acting In
the proper spirit In appointing another
committee of experts to make an In
vestigation of the sewer.
R. a Qreenleaf and George Knight,
two of the experts who recently Investi
gated the conduit, are of this opinion.
They state that If the experts the msyor
sends into the sewer are fair-minded
man and make the proper examination of
the drain, they will find the sewer in
a much worse condition than it la shown
, to be In their report to the council com
mittee. "I am perfectly satisfied to have the
mayor appoint another Investigating
committee." said Oeorge Knight today.
"If the members of this committee know
their business they will find the sewer
In a more deplorable condition than
shown In our report to the council com
mittee. W were not prejudiced In
favor of the property owners, and If
anything we gave Rlner the better of
tho report all the way through. There
wars many defects found which were
not named at all In tho report.
"It will be Impossible for the contrac
tors to go Into the sewer and make re
pairs that will cover up the defect. They
are too glaring. They may be able to
patch up the surface, so that the sewer
will look better to the casual observer,
but It will be Impossible for them to
relay the bricks In the two outside tiers
where there Is no mortar without doing;
the work all over.
T was not appointed by the property
owners, aa has boon stated, but the
council committee came to me and got
mo to act aa aa expert on the work. Aa
faa aa I am concerned the report was
not prejudiced la any ' way. If It had
been I would not have signed It. Lac
the mayor appoint a committee; I am
willing that he should do It. I also think
he Is doing right In allowing Rlner to
put the bottom In the aewer where It
waa left out beneath the manhole, for
if It la not repaired It will be aura to
cave In thla winter, causing great dam
age. Whatever repairs are made will
not cover up the defects so that they
cannot be found."
R. S. Qreenleaf la of the same opinion.
He states that ha Is perfectly satisfied
to have tho mayor appoint experta to
follow their Investigation of the aewer.
"If the experta are fair minded men
and know their business." continued he.

stated In our report.
"If they attempt to disprove our re

Albany; that some time In November,

long-distance telephone from Horace Q.
McKlnley to prepare an abstract of the
lands described In the Oeorge A. Howe
abstract; that McKlnley appeared later
on. accompanied by Attorney Hardy of
Kugeae; that she turned the document
over to McKlnley and his name appeared
thereon aa the person making the re
quest for the abstract. Mr. Heney then
asked If the papers were ever returned
to her. She said that Attorney Hardy
came back Boon afterward with the ab
stract and requested that the name of
Horace Q. McKlnley, where It appeared
In the certificate of Manager Payne on
the last page, be erased and that the
name of Oeorge A. Howe be substituted

overlooked. We reported on nothing In
which tho whole committee did not con
cur. Individually we found many defects
which were not Incorporated In the re
port. There are many bad places In the
drain of which we aa Id nothing.
"Although the contractors are allowed
to go into tho sewer and make repairs
It will be Impossible to oover up the de
fective work so that It cannot be found.
They may smooth over the surfsce, but
any expert will be able to And the de
fects. This Is especially true where the
two outer layers of bricks have no mor
tar surrounding them.
"If allowed I would like to make the
suggestion to ths mayor, since hs Is
going to order sn Investigation, that a
portion of ths sower be uncovered from
the surface eo that everybody who ue-
alres may see the poor construction of
ths drain. A ahort distance weat or the
manhole at Sixteenth and Alder streets
there Is a portion of the work which la
but a few feet below the surface, and
It can easily be uncovered. There Is a
space of over 100 feet In this location
where the second and third tlsrs of
bricks have no mortar surrounding them.
and If the sewer is uncovered there it
will disclose the defects so they msy be
seen by the public without going into

several men at work in the sswsr to

Mayor Williams had nothing to say
today regarding the matter, other than
that he has . not selected ths sxperts
who are to go Into the drain.
Several members of the execu
tive board were Interviewed this
morning. Whitney L Boise stated that
he had nothing to say regarding tho
"I have kept out of the mess so far,"
said he, "and I propose to keep out r
It aa long as possible."
Several others expressed themselves
aa being much averse to becoming mixed
up in the scandal:
It was hinted around the city hall
this morning that In all probability the
city council will take some action at
the meeting neat week to compel the
mayor to carry out the recommendations
adopted in the report on the sewer re
garding the dismissal of City Engineer
Elliott and Oeorge Seoggln. bis chief
deputy, and Inspector J. M. Cay wood.
No trace of Walter Thomas has been
discovered by the grand Jury and It Is
still ths opinion that hs Is in hiding In
this city.
The grand Jury today la Investigating
ths Tanner creek aewer scandal, and
may report the result of Its findings
tomorrow morning. Witnesses before
them In thla connection this morning
were Contractor A. B. Blamona and J.
O'Nell, an employe of City Engineer
Elliott's office. No one from Contractor
R. w Rlner s office has yet been before
the Jury, but E. W. Rlner. son of ths
contractor, has been watching the pro-
uBodiiigi from the hallway.
The arson charges which have been
placed sgainst Bachelor. Miller and A.
B. Coon for setting firs to the building

careful Inspection demonstrated that
some other name bad been written and

when this Jacket left her hands It had
the name of Horace O. McKlnley written
on It In her handwriting, and that ths
nsme of Oeorge A. Howe, which now
appears there, waa not written by her.
Miss McCoy was cross-examined by
Attorney Hardy, who stood up. and lean

replied the witness
Charles A. Hardy this morning denied
that he bad aver met Miss McCoy, and
did not know that she waa connected
with the Linn County Abstract company
unUl ahe so testified on ths stand. He
stated further that he was not In Al
bany on the date ths abstract is slleged
to have boon made, never had any busi
ness relations with her of any kind, and
that whatever bustnsss he had with
the abstract company there, which, he
says, was considerable, was transacted
with one of the managsrs of the con
cern, other than Mr. Payne, but whose
name he could not recall. When asked
why he did not cross-examine Miss Mc
Coy more closely upon these points, ha
replied that he should have done so, but
waa so completely taken aback by the
nsturs of her testimony that he failed
to realise the Importance of refuting It.
Mr. Hardy said also that hs wss under

Handwriting Expert Shearman con
tinued his testimony this afternoon. Hs
said that he had examined the signa
ture of Horace O. McKlnley on the
bond that was given by him at the tlma
of his arrest, and had compared the
same with the signature of Oeorge A.
Howe in his relinquishment to the
United States at ths time be made a
forest reserve lieu selection, using por
tions of 11-7 as basis. Ths witness
waa of the opinion thst Horace O. Mc
Klnley wrote the Howe signature, to
gether with the body of the Instrument.
He testified that he knew of two other
Instanoss In which McKlnley wrote the
body of the document: a lieu selection
and the accompanying non-mineral affi
davit. The lieu selection was signed by
Oeorge A. Howe, but witness wss unable
to say who signed the non-mineral af
fidavit. Mr. Heney here referred the
non-mineral affidavit to witness, and he
identified the signatures and body
thereof as being In McKlnley s hand
writing. The introduction of the non
mineral affidavit In evidence was ob
jected to by Judge O'Day. snd aa there
seemed to be some doubt regarding Its
admissibility. Heney withdrew the docu
ment. By a large diagram Mr. Shearman
showed the "letter forms" In the non
mineral affidavit written and signed by
H. Q. McKlnley, and displayed to the
Jury the strong similarities to the writ
ing of the mythical Oeorge A. Howe.
Maud Coffin, who la to be one of tho
wltneaaea In the esse, was a conspicuous
figure In the court room today. Rumor
haa connected her with some of ths
tranaactlona by defendants and her ap
pearance In court aroused the. curiosity
of ths spectators.
Una County Deputy Clerk Olvea star
tling Bvldenoe.
The evidence adduced by the prosecu
tion in the land fraud cases yesterday
afternoon was damaging in the extreme.
R b. Montague, the former deputy coun
ty clerk of Linn county, completed the
confession of his own share in ths con
spiracy, acknowledging that he had
falsely certified to the execution of
fraudulent homestead filings in township
11-7; Miss Mlda McCoy, a atenographer.
In tha employ of the Linn County Ab
etract company, added to tha evidence
Intended to identify Horaoe O. McKln
ley with the fictitious Oeorgs A. Howe;
Special Agents Greene and Dixon gave
damaging testimony against Frank H.
Walgamot, whose contradictory state
ments made to them seem ta convict
him of complicity In the frauds; and
John P. Marshall, former cashier of
ths Alnsworth National bank, a hand
writing expert of many yeara' experi
ence, capped the sensations of the day
by asserting that the" signatures of
Joseph Wilson. Thomas AV ilk Ins. Oeorge
Graham. Oeorge Pettis and Oeorgs A.
Howe had been forged by Horaoe O.
McKlnley. that Emma Watson waa ths
writer of the signature Emma Porter,
and that tha name of Hattle S. Lowell

Thers Is soms uncertainty among tha
members of the Columbia theater stock
company as 'to what course they should

Oeorge Bloomqueat, one of the members
of the organization, from the Tannhau-
ser stock company of Milwaukee. Tho
offer, which waa In the form or a tele
gram, stated In effect that the Columbia
company was to oloss snd tbo Tann

Mr. Bloomquest at once communicated
with Calvin 8. Helllg and J. E Blaster,
both of whom denied the report. A mes
sage was then sent to Milwaukee stating
that tha report of the prospective clos

from Manager Tannhauaer, In which he
quoted a letter addressed to him by a
New Tork agency, stating that Manager
George L. Baker had hlmsslf ssld while
In New York that the company here was
to closs "soon."
Until Mr. Bakor's return from the east,
which Is anticipated late this afternoon,
an explanation Is lacking. Mr. Bloom
quest has not accepted tha offer and
presumably Intends to await develop

ceive three weeks' notice of the closing,
