Great Quebec Span Bolfetld
I In Place.
s Quebec, Sept. 20.-The cen
t tral span of the Quebec cantilever
,bridgJwas successfully bolted
- into place this afternoon at 3:23
o'clock, linking together the
kind in the world. The hoisting
1 operations began lat Monday
Smorning, and the span, which
weighs 5000 tons, was lifted by
hydraulic jacks a distance of 150
feet from pontoons on the St.
Today's work brought to an
end the critical part of the opera
tion, virtually completing the
structural part of the brjdge. An
effort last year to raise a similar
span in place resulted in disas
ter, when the link slipped from
its supports, causing fourteen
deaths, and in 1907 a bridge in
the same place collapsed when it
was practically complete, killing
The successful, completion of
the bridge will mean the fullfill
ment of a fifty-year engineering
dream. It will be some months
before trains can be run over the
structure, as there is much de
tail work to be carried out. The
running time between Halifax
and Winnipeg will then be reduc- Ever
ed half a day. One detail is the bede
painting of the bridge, which, it our
is estimated, will take three years abun
and cost $35,000. kind
