W UN IMBE MEBTIUK 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 Central. Immense Undertaking. 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. Tesla Plant at Auction.

March 22.—Pen tucket lodge, F. and A. M., will ob serve the ninety.ninth anniversary of its charter this evening. A dinner will be served at the Masonif; temple, and a musical and literary entertainment will follow. 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 ty has not been occupied since the 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. The Molly Varnum chapter, D.

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 as follows: "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 LAST FALL. 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 next month. "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."
