the danger woulll all be Incrcaed by
the additional trafc and the rcsldmts
objected to the franchise being granted
on these Flouiit
For the railroad company Mr NEl
son contended that traffic woud not D
increased to an extent that would be
dangerous anll asked what difference
the rnning or the cars oC the SaHulr
line which would be similar 10 the
street cars and thos or the ttth
Light Railway cmpan would make
over the tracks rl the point made
that the viaduct W not wide enough
to admit or the passage or vehicles 311
street cars at thc same time 11 Nd l
son suggested that steps bo taken by
the council to compel the Oregon Shor
Line Riroad com pn to widen the
viaduct s that daner of collision
might be avoided and the traffic be
given PlentY oC room
This brought up an Interesting ques
tiomm and It was stated by Mr Rich
that the viaduct II still the property
ot the Short Line and had not been
accepted by the city consequently no
flanchle should be granted over the
viaduct to anybody I was stated
however that the viaduct would son
be accepted bY the city and Chahman
Lyne was oC the opinion that the coun
ci could compel the railroad company
to widen the viaduct I necessary
Mr Nelson dammed that It woud be
an Injustice to withhold a flnchlse
from the Salalr compan to run Its
cars over the route proposed when the
street car compan was given time same
privilege a11d this view wa concurred
In by Chrll1an Lyne
11 Lewis said IC the Slalr line was
given time privilege ot running over time
viaduct there was nothing to prevent
any otimer line or 10 other lines from
alllng the same privilege and secur
Ing It and contended that It was not
justce to the residents of the streets
affected to pelmlt this additional traffic
which he said was full or danger to the

No intimation oC the contents oC the

best information obtainable Indicates
that the communication Is brier and
that the declination to accept the
neutralization proposition Is based on
several grounds the chief of which
arcTe American plan would be of no
R nntage whatever lo Japan
China It would afford no advantage to
I would not change the commercial
situaton In Manchuria where Japan Is
adhering strictly to Its pledges of an

I has been understood generally
that Japan and Russia would take

I been rejected by both Japan and Rus
sia were read wIth great Interest at

there Is good reason to believe from
unofficial sources that the state depat

There 19 no doubt that timis result
of SC Knoxs effort to elminate he

I Is belIeved to b quIte possible
that with the rejlton or the plosl
