Ii They Had Been the Coat of tba Masonry Would Have Been Koch Less A Keport lor tbe Investlsators to Dlrert. Engineer Hibbard In hi report to the subcommittee In tbe bridgennresUgation say there waa no difficulty in practically carry, ing out the work aooordlng to tbe adopted plan and (pedflcationa aa to losatlon and position of piers and abutment and general style of masonry, . although . It waa found necessary to decrease the height of pier and abutments owing no doubt to tbe hardness of material in the foundation and also to change tba bridge eats to receive the superstraction as ahowa on the plan furnished by the contractor and which were accepted f by the joint oommittea. . - Mr. J. B. Lewis he find was placed In full charge of tbe masonry by resolution of tbe joint committee at a meeting held June 25, 1892. I Mr. Hibbard after quoticg an extract from tha agreement with the con tractor dated Aug. 9th, 1392, in which' the orisinal plana signed by tbe city and county engineer and contractor were toe plan decided on for ' eonstructien, goes on to say that had the pier I and abnt-menta been built a originally Intended no alteration in tbe superstructure would have been neoeesary nor would any addition to the masonry at the western abatement hare been required. j i I - , WHY FOT CHA50XO. .' Th bridge aeats of pier and abutments ware built to tha heights shown on the original plana of the superstructure and should have been changed to ult the adopted plans. . Why this was not dona ha ooald not understand, unless it was that the engineer was not in possession of all tbe information necessary to have tha work done properly. Had ths plans sobmitted by tbe contractors for tbe bridge state been carried out, the cost of tbe masonry would not hsvs been so great owing to the fact that tha masonry would not have been carried np as high a it haa been on pier and front of abutments..' r Mr. Hibbard, writing about tha pier work say t "I do nnt consider there was any necessity for m-i- 'ie change from aquar work to kw julciuj from the. position of the piers of the old bridge which stood in ths same position with regard to ths Current, as it was originally intended to place tbe western pier in Question. I fail to find anv evi dence to wairaat tba deviation from the original plan. i ! Bneakina of the eonstraotlon of the ice breaker, be aaya, "Ia tba original plan the ioe-breaker for th pier in the east and west channel are shown alike, consequently had the plan been adhered to the ioe- breaker on tbe wen pier would hare bean suitable." f ABOUT THE IIW MASOSRT. ' About th skew masonry he lays: "When the change from square to skew was decided upon tbe ends of piers and wing of abutments ahoold have been built In the aame position with regard to th osntre line of the bridge that they occupied oo tba original plan, and alao had they been built to the rs quired lengthto receive ths superstructure the extra masonry and iron girder would not have been required at the western abut ment, although . tbe quantity, of masonry would have been more than the original plan called for, the appearance of the bridge would have been greatly improved and th sxtra expense at ths western abutment avoided. I I : ( 1 The above information 1 slven bv Mr. Hibbard in reply to a number of questions asked by City Engineer Surtee and which too oommtttcs asked him to report oponv Tba Palaoe at Wonders. Mr. Smith of ths "Palaoe of Wonder' wishes space to answer the letter signed ?" in yesterday' Jockhai. f He denies that any "swindling" goes on. : Tha only thing approaching a "game" he aaya.
