That he has succeeded in nis eiioris, puo- llahiul renortSwln the eastern dally press and In technical publications devoted to the use of cement leave no room for doubt ... . . Reports are jExaggeraiea, . Much has ' been published about the Edison house much that was errOne nn a and ridiculously exaggerated. ' Writ ers in the eastern press have spread an tmnresalon abroad that this house was a magical object that the inventor could produce in some way oy me. mere wave of . a wand. But as a matter of fact Edison has proceeded only -along sane lines, simply malting use or me materials nature naa proviaeo xor me uuuuer. t . .. r Architects ana engineers, ana in isci ail iecnnicai men wnu m huvfi- edare of therproperties- --of -nconcrete greeted the first announcement two years ago of the- Edison poured house witn increauuiy ana irauw ?-- Were Many Objections. "The most freauent objection or crltl clBm - off f ered was the apparent impracticability of pouring concrete into aa intricate set of molds and securing a - surface throughout that would be frA from Imnerfections. "Tt will eloar ." "it will not flow." were expressions heard on all sides. Objec tlons were also offered on artistic grounds." "Imagine a elty of houses, every one of which is like all the others. ' It Is preposterous," was said, Edison has answered all these objec tions to the . full satisfaction . of the most critical. He has produced a mix ture of a consistency almost like water which holds the stones or aggregates in suspension, allows the mixture to now frAelv to all oarta of the mold and se cures a uniform distribution of the ag gregates throughout tne mass. Molds Are Varied. - The molds are adapted to variations of arrangement thus making it pos sible to change the style and -design of the : house with the same set ol molds. Therefore with half, a dozen sets of molds, a wide variety, of stylo 1 possible. An important- fact - about Edison's house is that it is of one piece, including the roof, floors, bath and even the laundry rfubs. , ' ,,, The doors and window frames- will be the only parts of wood or metal, so If" will be practically, fireproof. The mixture composing it is both water- nrnnf and vermin nroof." .So far a is known no effort has t been made to secure the- right to uild the Edison house in Portland.- DEAD BODIES UNDER FALLEN DOCK WALL (nnited fnm Vni Wire.)

H. Bradford to test the right of the "Portland j Ballway, Light- & Power company to proceed with the construction of lines under the blanket - franchise - granted by the city council. The argument on" - de-mflrrer took place -yesterday, - L, A. McNary and Isaac Swett appearing for Bradford, while'the& railway company was represented by i Fred, V. Holman, Franklin T. Griffith and Charles H. Carey ... ,,- v.' ; ; . Interpretation of the f eferendum law Is the point at Issue. It Is contended on -the one hand that the state law al- lowing 20 days for the filing of a referendum .petition Is of superior force to the city rule that an ordinance shall take effect, within IB days unless a referendum is , filed In the meantime. This the attorneys for- the street railway deny. The referendum- against the blanket franchise, which was backed by the labor unions, was Sled within SO days, but not within IS. 'If the right of referendum is sustained the railway will not be able to extend its line to the Swift -plant and to make the other extensions-planned until after the election of 1910, and -then only on approval by-- the popular, vote, but It would be possible for the city council to pass a new ordinance covering the lines for which, there is the roost , urgent demand.
