Delnys of Existing Arrangements to be Done Away
With Engineer Koon Will Boss the Job,
Which Will be Hastened to Completion
After a sorlea of apodal comtnltteo
iiieetliiKH mid mooting of tho City
Council, u wtH docldod early thla af
ternoon to cancel Iho urrougeiueiiia
at pieaont oxUtlng for tho conntruo-
; tlou of Itond'n auwr ayatem nnd for
tho city to tako over tho woru, com
pleting It Itaolf.
Tho docliilnn waa mado nftor
thorough oxaruliiallou Into tho altu
utlcn. It waa developed that tho
contractor, tho Kouili Portland
Cruahcd Hock Company, nro loalng
ii in n ey nml would bo utmblo to com
picio tho Job with any antUfactlon or,
nt tho rate they have gono tliu far,
within aoveral oar. Inveatlgntlon
allowed that tho organization wn not
tlnnnclnlly ublo to put through the
work, It being practically luovltablu
that the beat that could bo hoped for
by continuing preneut arrangement
would bo to dally along for a couple
of month, after which the city would
find Ittclf with the work but llttl
further advanced than It la now, nnd,
probably, with auiloua litigation
pending with tho construction bond
ing homo, lu tho event of forced can
cellation. The fact of the matter nro that
ery yard of rock tho contractors
huva moved to date with day labor
hm meant loia to them. So, natur
ally, they have done nway with direct
employment of lalior and have let
.:rythlng poailblo to aub-contrnc-tora.
One result of thla method ha
been that local la'jor nnd American
labor has had no fair chance at tho
work. Also, the "tub" themselves
hnvo found that the? navo been mak
ing no money, and after this It would
bo noxt to Impossible to get moro of
them to tackle contract. However,
a naturally tho contractors wore try
ing to do tho work as economically
a possible, their employment of
subs" can not be criticized harshly.
Tho arrangement places Knglueer
It. K. Koon In direct chargo of tho
construction, as ho nlrendy waa of
tno engineering, subject to tho super
vision of tho council and tho sewer
From tho progress already made,
the exact cost of excavation has been
pretty well established, and It I
found that tho worK oan reaaonably
bo expected to lm completed within
tno original estimate.
Tho city cntera upon tho ret of tho
Job with these advantage: The
work already completed, at lot lo
the contractor, represents a gain to
It of about 1Q00; further, this has
boon by far tho most difficult portion
of tho work, aud ho been attempted
under tho moat adverse wtMlhor con
dition. Secondly. In the arrange

benefit from tho faet that tho con
tracting company gtvoa It tho free use
of all It equipment now on tho
ground and that ntready onlortnl, un

reckoning In drills, boilers, etc.,

tively estimated nt $1700.

In closing up the arrangement

The garage will stand on lots 6 and
