Michigan Central Railroad Will Con
struct Big Tonnel
WILL 60 UNDER THE DETROIT RIVER
TWO SINGLE TRACK TUBES WILL
BE PROVIDED—BE MILE
AND ONE-HALF LONG.
NEW YORK. March 22.—The ad
visory board of engineers appointed
by the management of the Michigan
Central railroad, to take charge of
the proposed tunnel under the Detroit
river, from Detroit to Windsor, Can
ada, will meet here this afternoon to
open bids for the construction of the
tunnel. The tunnel, including under
river section and approaches, will be
about a mile and one-half long, and
will be one of the biggest undertakings
of that kind in this country. The ad
visory board consists of W. J. Wilgus,
chief engineer of the New York Cen
tral system; Howard A. Carson, chief
engineer of the Boston Transit # com
mission, and W. S. Kinnear, assistant
general manager of the Michigan
The work will be carried on under
the direction of the Detroit River
Tunnel company, which was organized
for the purpose. A force of engineers
prepared the plans and specifications.
The general plans call for two single
track tubes separated by a concrete
center wall and lined with concrete.
The contract plans offered four de
signs of tunnel for the part of the
work under the river, about half a
mile in length. Vice-President Wilgus
has suggested a new engineering idea
which, he believes, will save time in
construction, minimize risk and result
in a saving of cost. His plan is to re
place the present silt under the Detroit
river by impervious concrete through
which, without the use of shields, the
inner tubes, or tunnel proper, may be
constructed so as to secure water
tightness, continuity of strength and
good workmanship. Mr. Wilgus' plan
does away with the use of cofferdams.
The large amount of concrete to be
deposited under water is a distinctive
feature of the plan. The concrete will
be deposited by divers. The shield
plan is similar in its features to the
plan of tunnel construction of the tun
nels under the North river.

its charter this evening. A dinner will

Benjamin W. Clement, Lucius A.
Derby, secretary, and other officers are
in charge of the celebration.
While the first meeting of the lodge
was held in a hall located on land
now occupied by the Frederick A.
Ayer estate, its installation took place
in the old Pawtucket Congregational
church, which was removed some
years ago to give room for the present
building. Before proceeding to the
church the members of the Pawtucket
lodge met in the Spalding residence,
corner of Pawtucket and School
streets. That building is still stand
ing and is thought to be the oldest
building in Lowell. The property was
owned by the grandfather of the late
Dr. Joel Spalding. Dr. Spalding died
in Lowell on January 30, 1888, and his
sister, Sarah R„ who was his heir,
died a few years ago while returning
from a trip to Savannah.' The proper

death of Miss Spalding. It has been i
proposed to purchase the property j
with funds to be contributed by var- j
ious historical and patriotic societies
and to preserve it as a historical relic.

BANKERS GIVEN WARNING
Advised to Look Oot [or Crooks
Operating on Coast
PaOTECTION COMMITTEE AT WORK
SECURES CONVICTION OF MAN
WHO ROBBED COEY BANK
The protection committee of the
Washington State Bankers' associa
tion has sent circulars to all the bank
ers in the state warning them against
two crooks who have been operating
over the Pacific coast. The circular
received by Walla Walla bankers is
"A man stating his name to e
Mitchell has been operating in a small
way on banks in the interior of the
state. His method seems to be to
leave a check for collection with a
bank and then by stating that he has
a deposit, to induce business men to
cash small checks drawn on a local
bank, and then leave the town before
returns on the first check are re
ceived. It is needless to say that the
check comes back, 'no account.' Mitch
ell is a medium sized man, black hair,
small moustache, wears lumber jack
clothes, does not speak good Englsh.
"A man stating his his name to be
Geo. E. Dodge, and claiming to have a
money deposit with the Farmers and
Merchants National bank, of Los An
geles. Cal., has defrauded a bank in
the northern part of the state. Look
out for him. Description: Height, 5
feet, 8 in; age, about 60; weight, 175
lbs; eyes, light blue: hair, gray; short,
gray moustache. Claims to belong to
a secret and honorable fraternity;
wore a black suit, soft black hat, short
black overcoat. If he puts in an ap-!
pearance, notify the secretary at once.
Look Out for Bogus Checks.
There have been a great many at
tempts lately to defraud banks and
merchants by means of bogus checks.
The protective committee has assisted
in the arrest and successful prosecu
tion of many such offenders, but de
sires to earnestly warn all bankers to
refuse to cash checks and drafts for
unilentifled parties—and as far as pos
sible keep their customers from en
dorsing such items and thus enabling
the swindler to have them cashed.
Take them for collection only.
Advice to Bankers.
The Inland Bank of Cunningham
was successfully burglarized last week,
the cashier seized and bound and the
safe blown open with nitro-glycerine
—about $1500 cash was taken. The
Pinkerton agency informs us that
there are a number of yegg men, or
burglars, operating in the state;* most
desperate criminals. This makes the
third burglary and attempted burglary
in the state in the past six months.
Through the joint efforts of the pro
tective committee of the American
Bankers' association and the Washing
ton State Bankers' association, the
felons who burglarized the Coey Bank
ing company last fall, were appre
hended. and one of them, John Allen,
was last week convicted of his crime
and sentenced to fourteen years in
the penitentiary. The trials of Geo.
Wilson and Joe Moore, charged joint
ly with the same offense, will be held
"The protective committee requests
particular attention to the following
suggestion: In the event of a bur.
glary, or attempted burglary, leave
everything absolutely untouched until
the Pinkerton men come on the field,
as in many instances good clues are
destroyed, especially in finger prints,
the best identification possible."
