Construction of the proposed Sol
diers' and Sailors' Memorial Bridge
In State street will not be started
before next spring, and the first
work whieh will likely he under-
i-taken will be the laying of the thirty-

present thirty-inch ones in State
•Street. H. G. Perring. of J. E. Grein
-cr and Company, consulting engi- 1
"peers, made this statement at an in- I
formal meeting of City Council yes- j
terday. ,
■ The Commissioners, City Solicitor j
TTohn E. Fox. Assistant E. Bruce I
X'aylor and City Engineer M. R. i
Cowden met with Mr. Perring this
to discuss what the city is
do pay as its share of the cost of lay
ing the new water pipe. William
Hargest, Deputy Attorney Gen
eral, was engaged in court all morn
ing and could not attend the confer
ence, so the meeting was adjourned
until next Tuesday morning at 11
Pijic Laying Costly
The whole cost of laying the
water pipe, according to tlie bid of
tlie Central Construction Corpora
tion, is . $132,265.91. Because the
, city wants the State to use thirty
six-inch pipe instead of thirty-inch
pipe J. W. consulting engi
neer of Philadelphia, who has been
retained by the city from time to
time and who devised the city's
present system of charging for
water, thinks Harrisburg ought to
pay about twenty-seven per cent, of
it he cost of laying the new mains.
!" Mr. Lcdoux once told the eity
! that it would cost $115,000 to lay the
•water pipe, but his estimate contain
ed an item of $13,000 for engineer
i ing fees. If that amount were add
ed to tlie contractor's bid it would
Tmake just a little more than $115,-
-000. Members of Council said this
"morning that they probably will re
-tuin Mr. Lodoux to supervise the
laying of the new water mains in
so far as looking after the city's in
terests are concerned.
Mr. Perring told Solicitor Fox
that the State will look after the
payments to the contractor, that the
■city can reimburse the State later,
.and that it will be early enough for
..the city to pay its share in 1921.
Therefore. Council will not have to
'Mother with this project while fram
ing the 1920 budget.
The State's engineer also said that
the work on the water pipe won't be
'■started before early spring, accord
. ing to the present outlook, and that
the whole job cannot be completed
"in less time than four months.
