THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. ENGINEER THOMSONIS HERE Ready to Answer Hoy Questions That Councilmen Put Tn Him WILL BE ON HAND AT MEETING TONIGHT DECLINES TO SAY ANYTHING RE GARDING CHARGES OF "JOB" BEING PREFERRED. A tempest in a teapot has been stirred up among several members of the council owing to the discovery that the original specifications for the new system of water works were changed in some respects when the contract for building the pipe line was drawn up between the city and the National Wood Pipe company and at tonight's council meeting Engineer Thomson will probably be called upon to give an explanation of the mat ter. Engineer Thomson who arrived in the city from Seattle this morning stated to a Statesman representative that he would be on hand at tonight's meeting to answer any questions re garding the specifications and contract entered into between the National Wood Pipe company and the city. Will Talk to the Council. "I have nothing to say in regard to the accusations made by one or two members of the council that the city has been jobbed," Engineer Thomson said. "I will be on hand at tonight's council meeting ready and willing to answer any and all questions that either Councilman Kirkman or Bridges see fit to ask me." late last week it was discovered that there was a difference between the original specifications and the contract regarding the quality of lumber the National Wood Pipe company is to furnish and the matter was called to the attention of Engineer Thomson over the long distance telephone. En gineer Thomson promised to come to Walla Walla immediately and look into the matter and arrived in the city this morning for that purpose. The original specifications on which contractors bid provided the wooden staves should be of first quality timber, locally known as Washington fir, per fectly sound, straight grained, en tirely free from knots, dry rot, pitch seams, cracks, shakes, sapwood, and other defects that might impair the strength and durability of same or, from the best California redwood. How the contract reads. The contract with the National Wood Pipe company in regard to the quality of lumber reads as follows: "Pipe staves shall be made from sound air dried or kiln dried fir lum ber. free from knots on one side and both edges, entirely free from shakes or rot, but will allow pitch seams up to four inches in length if not extend ing through pieces or hard bright knots up to %-inches in diameter if not ex tending through pieces. Will allow sap not exceeding 3-16 inches in thickness on inside of staves." It is claimed that by the change in the specifications the National Wood Pipe company will effect a sav ing of considerable money. Council man Bridges and Kirkman say that the company would save as much as $6000, but this it is believed is too high and the exact figures can only be ascer tained from the woop-pipe people themselves who are conversant with matters of this kind. Several members of the council are inclined to take a more charitable view of the matter, arguing that if the orig inal specifications were lived up to that the wood pipe company would not be able to furnish the amount of clear lumber necessary to build the line within a year. The fact, however, that the company is getting paid for first-class lumber as provided for in the original specifications and fur nishes an inferior grade remains unev plained.

Wfcat Wellington Was Doing. When Sir John Steell, the sculptor, had the Iron Duke sitting for a statue he tried to Induce him to look warlike. All his efforts were in vain, however, for Wellington seemed, judging by his face, never to have heard of Waterloo or Talavera. At last Sir John lost his patience. "As lam going to make thl: statue of your grace," he exclaimed, "can you not tell me what you were doiug before, say. the battle of Sala manca? Were you not galloping about the field, cheering on your u?en to deeds of valor by words and action?" "Bah!" said the duke in evident scorn. "If you really want to model me as I was on the morning of Sala manca, then -do me crawling along a ditch on my stomach with a telescope In my hand!"

SOPROSED>ROBBERY PROVES ONTROE INJURED PiIAN LEFT MONEY WITH STRANGER, WHO RETURNED IT TO OWNER. A part of the mystery surrounding an accident which occurred near Trent about a month ago has been cleared up. Frank Penny was brought to the station a few weeks ago by Michael Blessing, of Trent. The man had a severe concussion on his head and did not know whether he had been sand bagged while riding on a Northern Pa cific train, or whether he had fallen off. He knew he had $40 when he was in Pasco, but his mind was not clear on what happened later, says the Spo kane Chronicle. Yesterday the police received $40 from Pasco. The money had been left with a stranger on the depot platform at Pasco by a man who answered Pen ny's description. An investigation by the police proved that the money had been given by Penny to a stranger to keep for him. Penny does not re member the transaction, but he posi tively identified the money, which was all in currency. It is thought the man was suffering from mental aberration while in Pasco and later took a train, from which he fell. Penny is now employed by Porter brothers and is regarded as a valuable man. He showed his appreciation of Blessing's kindness by leaving $5 in the hands of the police to be paid to Bles sing for his trouble in bringing him to. the hospital in this city.
