BIDS WILL BE
TO BUILD NEW ELIOT BUILDING
0icnlti(r of Spring MaoT
Buildings Will bel adi r
Bids for the construction of tbe
new Eliot building, to be erected on
tbe corner of Oak and Second streets,
will be optoei today. Work ot clear
ing off the old shucks from the ground
ha been rayietciiiK, aud Is nearly
oompleted. Tbe small building tbat
has been on wagons, waiting tor the
roads to improve, was moved up the
bill last week.
The new building will be tbe best
business block, in point of size and
cost, tbat has been erected in Hood
Eiver. P. M. Hall Lewwis Is the
architect, and bas iutroduoed some
new featuret into ..the plan ot con
srtuct'Ou tbat will add to the stabili
ty and conveuieuoe of the building.
Tbe building will" lie 50x100 leet in
size, tio atones high and a full base
ment with a uiue foot ceiling. As
tbe grouud elopes tap idly to tbe
no 'tb, tbe door ot the basement on
Seoond street will be on a level with
tbe sidewalk. The basemeut ceiling
will be flush with' tlie lloor joint,
without the ueual heavy girder beams
stiokiug dowu below the ceiling.
This arrangement ia affected by
means of the steel giidot hangerar
Iron posts will support the girde.
from a solid foundation. Tbe room
be left without partitions, a'ak
ing a lurgo, well lighted basement
50x100 feet, or will be divided to Bull
The Urst floor, as now iaid out, will
conuUt of one large stoie loom, but
will bave two entrances aud complete
appointments lor two separate stores,
by running a partition through tbe
oentar. Tbe front will be plate glass,
with niokel bars. Tbe transoms over
tbe trout windows will be three way
prism glass, which will reflect tbe
light stiaight back into the roo n. A
steel awuiug, extending over tbe side
walk on Oak street, suspended on
bruokete, will protect the walk from
sun as well as alu and snow. Hit
prism glubs will bo above tlie awuiug,
so as to light the interior, uud not be
shaded by tbo awuiug.
The Oak and Second street iron1
will be buff pressed briok, with terra
ootta keys in the second story arches.
The oaps of pilasters will be of orua
uieutnl brick. A emei't walk will ex
tend on both sides of the building,
suspended over sidewalk vaults by
stsel 1 beams, with ootrugated gal
vanized irou arches. Tbe roo ing will
be cart led up to tbe full height of the
Bra wall, which will be protected on
top by galvanized ' iron, ' preventing
moistuie from soaking into tbe wall,
Tbe seooud story as laid out ; at
present, wilt bave lifteen office rooms.
Negotiutious bave been pending to
make the upper story, oi at least part
of it, into quarters tor tbe use of tbe
Oouitnerciel club, but if this is not
done, tbe office rooms aiaugemeut
will be carried out. The wulls will be
strong enoi!gb to carry an additional
story, in which case au eluvatoi can
be put in very easily.
Whether the'main walls will be con
structed of briok or bollow cement
blooks will depend on the market
prioe of cement. Tbe price tins been
advanciug ou cement, until it is in
creasing the cost ot concrete con
struotlou very materially. At the old
prioe for cement, the wails would cost
about twelve ie. cent loss ot concrete
than of tnick.
Arrangements . have bieu paitly
made for creating sevurtl ttbei
business Uouks in tbe oitj this year,
several promiueut corners, whiob now
contain some of tbe old original
wooden buildings to be replaced wltb
modern structures. Amoug those who
will undouliedly btiiiJ soon ia J. R.
Niokelsen, wbo will put a two story
brick on the ooruer of Fourth and
Cascade avenue. There wUl be a full
basement to this building, with an
entrance on Fourth street on a level
with tne basement Hoot. . Tbe Hist
floor and basement will be used by
Mr. Niakeseeu for bis cariingeaud
implement business, mid tbe lucation
is very desitable r'm it.
Three othe- bricks bave been pro

The largest building project wbiob
Mi. Usll-Lewit baa under considera
tion, aud what ia probably the larg
est contemplated tor thir locality tor
the totulug season, Is tbat for which
be recently sent sketches east.
These plans call tor an all year
round hotel building, "T" shaped in
plan, 125 feet, 10 inobea long, and 02
fe it, 8 dnobea deep. 2H stories and a
basement 8 twit, 6 inobea, 9 feet, 6
Inobea, 10 feet, 5 Inobea and 9 feet re

In this building will be eighty
sleeping-rooms, 16 private baths,
housekeeper's quarters, la the upper
quarters, and oooupying a portion of
tbe ground floor. Ibe hotel parlor
will be on tbe second floor.
On the ground floor will be tbe toy

wilting room, and waiting room, a
ladles' reading and ret li lug room,

Arouud threw aides of tbe ground

randa, whiob by to unique arrange
ment of laige openings in tbe walls of
the foyer, can be combined with the
latter for auob oooaaicna as hops, and
entertainments on festival oooasiona.
Ibis will admit of dancing in tbe
open aii, yet under roof in tbe sum
mer, aud within tbe glass enolosuies
In tbe winter. Floors of foyer and
vrandaii aie to be flush, so tbat there
a ill be no "trip" over thresholds.
The kitoben and pantry auauge
meute (nu tbe ground floor) are an
adaptation ot tlie very latest princi
ples of couveuienoe aud ventilation, iu
vogue throughout the great resorts In
tbe east, where Mr. Lewis' clleutb
are interested heavily.
Ibe basemeut will be given over , to
billiard loom, house laundry, steam

buths, fuel, etc. .
On tbe second floor, over tbe foyer,
there ill be a son parlor, steam heat

There will bi a stabli in connec
tion with the hotel, large euough to

may deveijp. in which will be quar
tered all tbe male help, and tbe teams
required to operate the stages to the

Ei entials of t Perfect Apple.
The dualities now In demand tor an
ideal cr perfeot apple, not including
productiveness of tree, may be sum
uiarlzed as follows:
1, A bright color ; 2, a gcod shape ;
3, a moderate and nninrorm size; 1,
a richness; 5. a spicy flavor: fo
smooth, tbin akin; 7, a firm, melting
flesh ; 8, a small core ana few seeds ;
9. good cooking qualities, and 10
flood keening qualities.
Wltb our present standard of taste
In oolor a bright red seems to be tbe
favorite, and tbere is no reason why
our ideal apple abould not conform
to this demand. In all markets red
apples sell better than thise highly
Form is one of tbe most permanent
characteristics of tba apple, forming

man Morse, who waa out of the oity
Tbe minutes of the previous meet
ing was read and approved.
The chairman reports! tbat be bad
taken up the matter ot tbe fence
aoroas Front street with tbe agent of
tbeO. R. A, S. Co., and tbe latter
bad informed him that tbe company
did not acknowledge that the city bad
any rights to tbe ground whiob waa
fenced in. It was not tbe fence tbat
the city objected to, but as It might
bave a bearing on tbe title by giv
ing the ralroad company tbe property
by right of adverse possession, it was
well to establish tbe city's right to
tbe premises. Judge Henderson waa
pieseot and stated that he thought
the fence might bave a beating on the
oase if left without objection by tb
oity. . He intended to go to Portland
lo a fow days aud if (tbe council
wished, be would interview tbe offic
ials ot tbe O. It. & N. and endeavor
to show them where the city's rights
were paramount, as be bad dona iu a
similar case opposite the Mouut Hood
hotel. Mr. Heudersou waa authorized
to do so.
Tbere was ouly one bid submitted
for a bell tower of steel. Norton &
Smith submitted a bid of $80 for the
delivering of a steel bell tower, 48 feet
blab, on tbe ground, and $95 tor
60-foot tower. Two other dealers ia
windmills in tbe city stated to tb
committee tbat tbey were unabla to
And anything but a windmill tower
In Poitland, and did not submit
bids. A motion to accept Norton k
Smith's bid for a 48-foot bell tower
waa withdrawn, as it did not include
the cost of erecting tbe same, and tb
matter was laid over until tb next
meeting to get bds for tbe furnish
ing of the tower, electing the asm
aud banging tbe bell.

tee and passed Its first reading.
Marshal danger repotted to tb--council
that the present system of
giving a common receipt for road
tax, waa meeting witU objection, as
there was nothing to indicate tbat tbe
receipt aa now given was official. Un
der the state law, a workman going to
auotber city in the state and exhibit
ing a leoeipt (or road tax, is exempt
rrom paying anotber tax tbe same
year. It was easy for a man, if so
dosposed, to make out a receipt him
self, on a cotuuiou blank form, aign-
ttig a name as street commissioner.
and pussing it aa au official receipt.
If receipts were provided wltb print

(or a man to obtain a blank and till
it out himself. Tbe oomtnittee on po

to bave receipts prlutd. ..

A belt million dollars will not cover

Aside from tbe enormous expense
ot opening the line there baa been

The officials dread to think of tb
