HORSES AND PRESS BURNED ON A FARM IS the opinion of the consulting 1 engineers who planned the new 1200,000 Arkansas river bridge at Tulsa, the work of construction will not be started until the first of next year at least. The agitation by some to have the Arkansas river declared navigable and the unwillingness of tin- war department to grand a per mit for the construction of the bridge until the matter is def initely decided will in ail probability tic the work up indefinitely. While the county commissioners will not be in session until Monday morning, a letter received by them yesterday from the firm of Harring ton, Howard & Ash. consulting en gineers, anil given out for publica tion, verifies rumors that have been current for some time that the work would be materially delayed.
