ACCOMPLISH
MORE WORK
MUNICIPAL PROGRAM CALLS
FOR SEVERAL SEW TACO
MA OWNED PLANTS, IN
CLUDING BUILDING OF
FHIE-PROOF DOCK BUILD
ING AM) COLD STOR/GE
PLANT. { t
The municipal program:
Build a new llrciiroof dock
building north of the High
bridge.
Install a municipal cold
storage plant.
Erect it pint form wharf
Koutli of the bridge lor "nil
feet.
Fill the vacant property
south of the bridge with
small manufacturing.
Buy the Northern Pacific
property north of the pros*
i-iit municipal dock up to the
bend. I
.
All this can be done, it is esti
mated, for $200,000. If it is
done, the city will launch into
the waterfront development here
and take the place of a port com
mission, rendering the latter un
necessary.
If the city buys the remaining
wharf property from the N. P.
up to the bend it will be in a
position to take care of all the
tramp steamers that come to
Puget Sound that want to land
here. The X. P. has agreed to
sell this property to the city at
the same price it bought the rest,
which would be $15,000 a. lot, or
$00,000 for the MM feet.
The buildings would be prob
ably $25,000 more.
The city has about $105,000 on
hand to construct the new dock
building. This is not enough to
put up a fireproof structure and
it will take $51,000 more with
probably $30,000 more for cold
storage. Engineer J. C. Corbin
will be here tomorrow to tell defi
nitely the cost of the latter.
Mayor Seymour figures If the
people will authorize $200,000 in
bonds the whole program can-be
carried out. The bonds would
not be issued against the people
but against the revenues of the
property and it would have to
pay for Itself.
Already the present docks are
Paying over $1,000 profit a
month.
The whole matter may lie put
iip to the people in the coming
bond issue. "

IS IT HAZARDOUS
TO WORK IN A
REPAIR SHOP?
Whether or not employment in
a repair shop is hazardous will
probably be threshed • out in
court when the suit filed against
the state Industrial isnurance
commission by Mrs. Clara Wendt
comes to trial.
Mrs. Wendt is suing for recom
pense for the death of her hus
band, George Wendt, who was!
electrocuted March 20, 1912, in j
the repair shop of the Stone-
Fisher company, where he was 1
working as head carpenter, states
the amended complaint filed this
morning.
According to her story, this
repair shop is under the supervi
sion of a machinist electrician,
who has charge of the electric
power used. She says her hus
band wanted to sharpen a chisel
on the day of the accident and
turned on the power himself. In
so doing be touched a copper con
tact on the switch and was in
stw«tiv killed.
'•i.lr.J> Wendt says she depended
solely upon him .for support, and
that she endeavored to collect
from the commission -December
19, 1912, but that she was re
fused because the commission
said he had not been engaged in
hazardous employment.
