PEOPLE ARE AWEARY
OF DELAY ON BRIDGE
Two Weeks Have Passed Since the Structure Over the River at
Morrison Street Was to Have Been Finished and
Still Its Completion Not in Sight.
SERIOUS INCONVENIENCE TO
The Committee Which Is Investigating the Condition of the Work
Has Not Yet Got Ready to Report, and Hope
Deferred Making Many Hearts Sick.
December placidly glides toward It
clue, nearly two full weeka having
passed since the date when the Morrison
street bridge should .have been com
pleted, and the enormous east side traf
fic tumultuously pours around the ob
struction of a closed highway.
"How long, oh executive boardT" la a
popular prayer. Winter's winds and
rains descend, and the beautiful struc
ture of patience has fallen, for It was
budded upon faith that one contract at
least would be finished within the time
specified. Each morning and evening
there la gnashing of teeth and Impreca
tions upon the powers that are en
throned In the city hall. Where the dis
jointed course of traffic exposes the
multitude to the Inclemencies of the
weather at First and Washington streets
and Grand avenue and East Burnaido
streets, the moist air steams with ana
themas. But hope has not departed, for a com
mittee Is investigating. December 1
the Pacific Construction company asked
for a 0-days' extension of time. That
waa a half month ago, when a commit
tee was appointed, consisting of the
bridge committee of the executive
board and the city attorney. Backed by
The stem conditions of the city's con
tract, wherein it is specifically and em
phatically set forth that time Is an es
sence of the agreement, and Instructed
by the executive board to listen to the
arguments of the contractors for fur
ther time, this committee is on duty.
The meport Will Be Made.
There Is comfort in this fact to the
woman whose skirts are drenched or
who bravely swims to transfer cars.
Also the sunny eaatslder of the mascu
line persuasion checks his ague In the
open car as he crosses Burnstde bridge,
end finds comfort in the fact that a com
mittee is Investigating. None so cap
tious but says a report will be made.
Time ia not necessarily an esssnce of
such reports, for there are many years
ahead of the east aide throng In which
to gather sunbeams of Joy.
"To accommodate the traffic, as per
your order of February 1. we were de
layed three weeks at that time." aaltb
the petitioner for time. "Because of
the unusually long period of medium
high water in the early part of the year
it waa impossible for us to da the pier
work, and early construction was de
layed several weeka; for that reason
and the tact that you did not want us
to proceed to tear up the old structure
then, stopping team and passenger traf
fic In this connection we would say
that, as you era aware, we have been to
unusual pains to accommodate the pas
senger traffic having allowed the peo
ple to use the bridge many times during
the progress of the work at the expense
of us and delay In the work.

"There waa a considerable season of
delay when we were stopped by the
United States government authorities
during the time that the matter of ar
rangement of width of the opening for
navigation was under discussion and
consideration.
WILL LEAGUE DROP
THE NORTHERN CITIES?
All Sorts of Rumors at Annual
Meeting Regarding Re
organization. (Jaarnal Special Service.)
San Francisco, Dec. 16. The annual
meeting of the Pacific Coast league, the
first session of which will be held to
night, promises to be a moat im
portant history-making organisation.
All the magnates are in the city, each
primed with propositions of a nature
that will demand a thorough threshing
out. The awarding of the pennant will
be a fruitful topic of discussion, and
may resolve Itself into an acrimonious
debate. WhatvPresident Bert's decision
in the matter will be he refuses to
make known, but admits it will un
doubtedly result In considerable warm
talk. The next most important subject
is the possible rearrangement of the
circuit, the disposition of part of the
California clubs to break away from

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL

Charcoal effectually clears and 1m-

eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which

disinfects the mouth and throat from

charcoal and the most for the money

EAST SIDE RESIDENTS
We are entitled at least to aa much
of an extension of time aa we now ask,
to enable ua to complete all the extra
work, which haa been arranged for since
the original contract waa made."
So argue the contractors. All of this
is skid and submitted in view of the
original binding agreement that the
work must be done by December 4 Em
phasising this condition, a penalty of $60
a day la prescribed for "each and every
day" beyond that time, and the con
tractors are told that the city of Port
land haa entered into an agreement with
the City and Suburban Railway com
pany binding the builders of the bridge
to pay that company $300 a day for each
and every day over to days that the
Morrison street bridge Is closed to their
cars.
The Committee Is Investigating.
Whether the railway company Intends
to hold the city to this obligation, or
whether the conditions of Interference
saving the builder from liability will
be Interpreted to apply, are not known
yet. But the committee Is investigating
and there is assurance that a report will
be made before the expiration of the
time aaked as extension.
In the petition to the executive board
aaktng for leniency in enforcing the con
tract, the bridge company offers the de
lightfully vague comfort that "we will
have the bridge open for traffic within
a very short time, and we will use every
reasonable effort to complete the entire
work at the earliest possible date, but
it will probably take the time asked
for tb entirely oomplete all the work
covered by the original contract and the
additions thereto. We win have the
work so far along within a few days
now that we will be able to allow street
car traffic to be resumed, and will rush
work with all possible haste, so that
team and foot passengers can use the
bridge within a very short Urns there
after."
SswJW Wot: Appeal to Public
This was penned about December 1.
The swing span superstructure la now
Incomplete, one end not having been
erected yet.
The excuses advanced by the con
tracting company do not appeal to the
discommoded public. The order to ac
commodate traffic seems to be In har
mony with the spirit of the contract,
and should not cause delay beyond the
period contemplated when bidding. If
the bridge was to be kept open to street
car trafflo all of the time save so days,
pedestrians could easily be accommo
dated during the same period. The long
period of medium high water Is regarded
as a condition that should have been
computed In bidding. Brief delay la
thought legitimately possible while the
width of the steamboat channel waa
under dlacusalon. All additions are not
thought by engineers to involve mate
rially greater time for completion, aa
they supplsnt other work In two In
stances, and the third addition la to be
made after the bridge la practically
finished.

Against Client.
LAWYER AND JUDGE HAVE
A VERY HEATED ARGUMENT
Contumelious Advocate Retorts
Warmly, and Smilingly Leaves
the Judicial Presence.
Attorney Charles F. Lord insists that
It Is a farce. Police Judge Hogue re
fuses to see any but the aerious side.
The dramatic critic would probably call
it a aerlo-oomedy.
Act 1 waa witnessed in the police
court yesterday, and Act 1 this morning.
The third and probably the concluding
act will be seen tomorrow morning, the
cast remaining the same

The Mongol Is accused of having been In
aa opium den with Ruth Delano, aged 10
yeara. Declaring Judge Hogue had ex
pressed an opinion that the Chinese waa
guilty, and that a trial would be a farce,
Attorney Lord was rebuked by tne court
yesterday and left the court room. He
made his appearance again tnls morning.
"Mr. Lord," sternly said Judge Hogue.
'1 think you offered the court an insult
yesterday by the language you used But
as if that were not enough, you walked
out of the court room and deserted your
client. The statement has been made
that bis bail of $100 haa been forfeited.
That Is sn error. His ball has not been
forfeited."
"That la what I am here for," answered
the lawyer. "I understood the ball had
been forfeited. This court cannot for
feit the ball, but must try the case."
Judge Hogue said that as no other
court could try the case, he would hava
to request Attorney Lord to get another
lawyer to appear for the Chinese.
"I don't Intend to give this Chinese the
'worst of it' because of the sins of his
counsel," emphatically stated the court
"We will set tomorrow for trial."
i'l have, instructed my client not to
appear for trial; It would be useless,"
coolly .volunteered the attorney.
Judge Hogue set for a moment speech
less. Then he turned to Bailiff Oolta.
"Mr. Oolta, have a warrant Issued for
the arrest of this Chinese and bring him
Into court."
This court cannot declare the ball
forfeited, and it cannot have the Chinese
brought in on a bench warrant." Inter
jected the lawyer. "The court must re
member this is a misdemeanor offense."
"Well. 1 will set tomorrow for trial.
If neither your client nor yourself Is
present I will find some way of getting
htm Into court you may depend on
that." replied the court, setting his Jaw
hard.
"Very well," smilingly retorted Mr.
Lord, as he walked out of the court
room.
It may be seen, therefore, that whether
It la comedy or pure farce, the final act,
as alleged, appears billed, for the police
court boards tomorrow morning. Ad

present to take any action looking to a
general strike, but will bend Its efforts
toward perfecting and strsngthenlng Its
organisation. To thla end an army of
organisers will be sent to every large

United States District Judge Bellinger
this morning decided that December It

Several well known attorneys were In

James Gleason appeared aa counsel waa
set for December II, that attorney arose
and remarked that a state law had Axed
that when a national holiday fell on

"I do not see any reason why Decem

court will sit on those dsys. I suppose
that when a holiday falls on Sunday, the
character of the day will cause all men
to conduct themselves In such a man

jected when the accident occurred. The
three teams were close together, while
near by, in the act of crossing the
bridge, was a bevy of laughing, happy
school children, all Intent on their dis
cussion of the coming holidays.
Suddenly without warning the huge
pile of Iron and wood plunged downward,
breaking the Ice beneath. The laughter
of the light-hearted children was
changed In a twinkling to screams of
terror, and they fought frantically as
they struggled In the freezing water.
The alarm caused by the crash aa the
pile of debris struck the ice 60 feet
below brought rescuers to the scene, and
the work of taking the unfortunates out
of the chilling stream was hastily com
menced. In a short time all were on
their way to their homes.
