In doing the work from this end the use of the dirt on the tide flats is said to be the moat practical. The T. R. P. offers the most feasible means of get- ting the earth to the flats, but the delay in coming to terms is said to be the fact that the T. R. P. now has all the business that can be conveniently handled. To take care of the Union Pacific work will require additional equipment and men. Should the plans for the disposition of the earth from the tunnel not prove feasible, the park board is willing to help the railroad out of difficulty. The board is willing to use the earth to fill the gulch from Tacoma avenue to Lin- coln park. This would do away with the old bicycle bridge and extend the limits of the park. No propositions have been made by either side, but members of the park board have had the matter under consideration. Engineer Baldwin also inspected the work being done at South Tacoma. The construction crew has been increas- ed by the addition of a number of teams and wheel scrapers.
