SOME MORE OBSERVATIONS BY
In Reply to Some Theories Propound
ed by the Center Street Committee
- This morning's Hi-publican and last
night's Gazette . contained an article
by the Phoenix Center Street Bridge
committee the best that can be made
out of it seemed to be an apology
for "not being able to get any practical
and competent county civil engineers
to advocate their type of concrete
bridge, so the best they could do was
to quote from a letter from Mayberry
& Parker that accomplished the plans
and specifications of their proposed
bridge. These gentlemen have bridges
and. they are made for the same pur
pose that Hodges razors were made
for to sell. I think that an expres
sion used by my friend Haw ley in
Mesa City today applies very aptly to
these gentlemen. Air, Hawley -was
speaking of engineers and said, "I am
a durn sight better nginet-r than a
good engineer, who engineers without
being paid for engineering." These
gentlemen are engineering without ber
ing paid for engineering, and as one
of these gentlemen said at Tempe
that coarse gravel and large boulders
was an excellent foundation to build
bridges on, but he would not guaran
tee the bridge against high -water, but
would only guarantee the structural
part of the bridge.
Quoting from Mr. Mayberry's let
ter published by the Phoenix Bridge
committee in referring to the high
water of 1891 they say, "By this rec
ord you will see that the bottom of
this bridge would have cleared all
high water levels for the past 20
years except that of 1891. Even in
the instance of the high water of
1891, 140(1 feet of the bridge would
have still been above water level.
In an article published a few
days ago by the Center street bridge
committee they stated that in the
highest waters the girders of the
bridge would still be six feet above the
water. I should think if the Center
street bridge committee had used good
judgment they would have suppressed
this letter from which I am quoting,
their bridge being 2150 feet long the
water would have been running
against over TOO feet of tins bridge,
and the causeway which Is three feet
lower than this would have been 3
feet under water, and that part of the
bridge would have been only a few
inches above high water. A bridge of
this type might , stand in such rivers
that have no more fall than from eight
to ten inches to the mile, but in a
river like Salt river that has a fall of
from eight to ten feet there Is a vast
difference, and I cannot see for my
part (but I must say that I am no en
gineer nor bridge builder) how the
drift is going to get past the bridge.
The f;ut is the distance between the
piers is only CO feet and these piers
only go down 12 feet below the datum
of the river and the causeway, or their
approach to the bridge 1000 feet long,
and water running over that at a depth
of three feet, something is going to be
moving and that is what always has
happened in this part of the country.
Now these gentlemen that the bridge
committee have ouoted are engineers
that have served their time in the east.
This same class of engineers have ex
lierimented with their theories to the
cost of the iieople of Arizona and other
states to the amount of quite a number
of million dollars. Louis Wolfley de
signed and constructed a dam In the
Gila river. He calculated for stress
and strain and resistance and every
other factor known to the dam builder.
but when the first raise came his dam
floated off down the river. Ex-Governor
Brodie and other engineers built
the Walnut Grove dam. They did the
same as Mr. Wolfley. They were ex
perienced, but the first high water
their dam washed out and drowned
quite a number of people. The Ari
zona dam was designed and built by
competent eastern engineers it finally
floated off down the river, So I do
not think it is a wise proposition for
the taxpayers to experiment at the
cost perhaps to the county of $100,000
in the construction of a new kind of
bridge to be built upon no foundation,
but to remember the- man who built
his house upon the sand and the other
fellow who built his house upon the
rock and which gentleman's proposi
tion was the best.
JAMES C. GOODWIN.
Mons Ellingsen's new warehouse on
West Seventh street has been complet
ed and is now open for business. Mr.
Kllingsen proposes to do a general
hay and grain business and will make
loans. He will also carry a line of
sacks and do an insurance business In
connection with the other lines. He
has secured the Hartford agency.
The warehouse is by far the best In
town. It is of brick, concrete and cor
rugated Iron. It is absolutely fire
proof as there is nothing that can
burn except the rafters. The walls are
of brick, the floor concrete and the
roof of corrugated iron. The building
is equipped modernly with scales and
a patent grain piling device operated
by a three and a half horsepower elec
tric motor. With it grain can itg piled
to any desired height very easily.
A NEW BRIDGE.
The city has just completed the con
struction of a bridge across the Priest
ditch on Ast avenue without any con
troversy whatsoever. . Of . course the
bridge is not as long as either of the
proposed Salt River bridges but it is
equally as permanent as either of them
THE NORMAL CADETS :
THE CAMP. IS LOCATED NEAR
The Boys Are Getting Lots of Fun and
Experience Out of It.
According to a report received yes
terday, the Normal Cadets are having
a first rate time at their annual en
campment across the river. A mem
ber of the company came to town yes
terday afternoon to secure the daily
papers, mail and other luxuries and
brought the following report for pub
lication: "We are encamped close to the tar
get range north of Tempe which offers
a splendid location. Tne company
reached here in good season Thursday
evening and pitched camp in good or
der. The new men are being Initiated
Into the mysteries of sentry duty and
are taking to the work nicely. Every
body is well, in the best of spirits ami
enjoying the encampment immensely.
We had a. comfortable night and ev
erybody . reported In good order for
reveille and roll call at 5 a.m-. Just as
the sun was peeping over the Four
Peaks. Drill and guard mount are
already over for this morning and the
target ueiau is starting ior tne range.
Nothing was said in the communl
cation about visitors but it is presum
ed that today will be so observed as
has been the previous custom. At any
rate. It Is safe to say that visitors will
be accorded a hearty welcome for the
cadets have a habit of treating their
friends right, whether they call In a
social way or ariive at some unearthly
hour of the night, bent on the capture
of the entire company.
E TALK IN TEMPE
OF A PACKING PLANT
Two Phoenix Men Here Yesterday
Looking the Situation Over.
A couple of prominent Thoenix men
were visitors here yesterday on a. mat
ter of much importance to the vaiiey
and to Tempe in particular. Readers
of The Republican will recollect an
article in yesterday morning's paper
relating to the building of a packing
plant and combined slaughter house
These two Phoenix men Intimated that
If conditions here were found favor
able. It might be that this plant would
be located on this side of the river at
a point just outside of the city limits
of Tempe. Since it Is designed to ship
to all poi.its in the territory from this
plant. It Is obvious that Tempe offers
shipping facilities as good as are of
fered by any of the other towns In the
valley. A suitable location can be se
cured here near the railroad and in ad
dition, the plant could secure water
service from the Tempe city system,
which Is acknowledged to be the best
in the country. Whether this matter
will ever amount to anything or not
remains to be seen. It is plain though
that such a plant here would mean
much to the town and citizens should
give the movement every possible en
couragement. A NORMAL VISITOR.
M. L. Stewart, president and man
ager of the Southwestern Chatauo.ua
circuit which includes Phoenix, was
here Thursday and paid the normal
school a visit, delivering a short ad
dress to the students. The chatauqua
course at Phoenix will be September
21st to 29th inclusive and will Include
the following list of attractions: Col.
William Jennings Bryan, ex-Governor
Joseph W. Folk, Captain Richard P.
Hobson, ex-Governor H. W. Butchel,
Prof. A. W. Hawks, Dr. T. W. Jeffries
and Dr. J. W. Stewart. There will be
a famous male quartet; Nicola, the
magician; the Royal Hungarian band.
It Is expected that there will be ex
cursions from Mesa and Tempe every
Congrega t iona 1 "ch urch Everybody
will enjoy his vacation better If he re
mains faithfully busy until the proper
time for it. To evade a duty to save
exertion is false economy: loss of self
respect is loss of moral power. Sun

The Tempe Band Will Give the Pub
lic Something Extra Tonight.
The Merchants' band promises the
public something special tonight In
the way of a band concert. Some
time ago the hand received a new
line of music. During the past week,
practice has been held every night
and an excellent program has been
prepared for this evening. The con
cert will be given at the usual time,
probably in front of the Casa Loma.
THE RIVER CROSSING.
Marshal Brown has a force of men
and teams at work making a good
crossing across the river at this place.
The road Is being covered with manure
to keep down the sand and the cobble
stones are being picked out. It is now
thought that the river will be low
enough the rest of the summer to war
rant the expenditure of a little money
on a permanent crossing here. ,

his cousin, Claude Dowell.
Howard Mars Is so fond of walk
ing and his bicycle interfered so
much with that pleasure tliat he went
to town last Saturday and sold his
wheel Just to enjoy , the walk home.
He thought, however, if this firs
walk tired him it would be an easy
matter to catch a ride for a few
miles; but no one happened to find
it convenient to be going in the
same direction at the same time so
that he was able to indulge in his new
exercise to his heart's content.
Miss Lizzie Green of Phoenix and
Mrs. M. B. Brooks were guests at

Ray Bell, who works for J. A.
Riggins, spent Sunday with his
parents near the Agua Fria. He re
ports that part of the country in a
flourishing condition. His father has
in aoout mteen acres of grain, a
melon patch, and a good garden, all
of which are growing nicely without
any irrigation, and a neighbor, Mr.
Champion has forty acres of wheat
that has never had a drop of water
on it, and gives promise of a fine
crop. The farmers in the irrigated
section of this district are less for
tunate, as they stand a good chance
of being dried Out during the water
famine. While we hope for better
conditions In a few days and do try
to be patient, as we are continually
urged to do. It is hard to keep from
feeling somewhat as the ship-wrecked
mariner, when we know there is
"water, water everywhere," but none
to usewhen it is so badly needed.
Lee Harris was out from Phoenix

We were all very much surprised
when we read in Wednesday's Re

Daniels to Miss Dora Vogt. The wed
ding was surprise enough and then to
learn that it was .consummated in
Phoenix was almost past comprehen
sion, as every one firmly believed
Mr. Daniels to be in Alhambra, hav
