OFFICIALS GO OVER PROPOSED
t NEW BOUNDARY LINES.
ELECTIONS AT A LATER DATE
Preliminary Steps Being Taken to Ad
mit Outlying Sections to City Limits.
The College Hill People Are Anxious
for Advantages. c j
Mayor Watters, Attorney Bry
son and the city council trav
ersed yesterday the proposed
new boundaries of Corvallis, and
are reported to be practically
agreed in favor of proposed ex
tensions, though there is some
doubt as to whether the addition
of j that section across, Mary's
river will prove of financial ad
vantage to Corvallis. While
there is considerable property
across the river, the city would
have to accept maintenance of
the Mary's river bridge, and two
or three smaller bridges "there,
extend water and sewer systems
v to -that section, and would be
forced to move the pumping
.station to a point further up the
The Proposed Lines
However, the petition for en
trance to the city will come from
College Hill folks, 'tis said, and
these are reported as favoring
the following lines, which were
traversed yesterday: Beginning
at the Willamette driver at north
line of the Hart tract, west along
property lines to the S. P.r Tight
of. way, north along same to the
N. E. corner of the M. C- Miller
tract, thence westerly following
the county road past Wm. Crees'
place to the Leadbetter corner
at the Catholic cemetery; thence
south to Corvallis and King's
valley road, continuing southerly
on western boundary of 0. A. C.
property to Oak Creek. Down
Oak Creek and Mary's river to
the Carver right of way, south
on the right of way to the south
line of the J. C. Avery donation
land claim, east and north on the
Avery claim line to the Willam
ette river. ,
The Legal Phase
. As the G.-T. understands it,
on the presentation of a petition
outlining the territory that is de
sired to be brought into the cor
porate limits, an election will be
held by the residents of thatter-
r ritory. If a majority declare in
favor of coming in. the city
council will call an election for a
decision of the people within the
present limits, to determine
whether they desire to let the
Both For and Against
The College" Hill people are
said to be anxious to come into
the city. There is no sewer sys
tem on the hill and the people
who live there are of the class
that finds the open toilet un
heathful and something of a
crime. But they also feel that
other outlying sections should
be brought in. It is understood
that the people across Mary's
river do - not want city advan
tages nor city taxes, and would
vote not to come in. It is'rjomt-
ed out, however, that so far as
taxes is concerned the outsiders
would ' find ' but ; sightly greater
burden when , withm the citv
limits. ' Last year those " outside
the city had to meet a five' mill
road tax, while if they come in
the - city they will have to meet
a seven mill tax. That makes
a difference of but $2 on each
$1000 of assessment Aside
from the Fischer estate, but two
men across the river are paying
on more than $1000 worth of
The matter of extending the
city limits will be brought up at
an early date and the minor de
tails threshed out then.
HOW TO CURE
The Department of Entomology
and Plant Pathology of O. A. C.
has just issued a bulletin on
'Spraying for Peach Fruit Spot,"
A. B. Cordley and C. C. Cate be
ing the authors. The" meat of
the bulletin is contained in the
1. Peach Fruit Spot probably
causes a' loss to the peach and
apricot growers of Oregon great
er than that caused by, all other
peach diseases " r 1 . r
2. The two seasons' work has
demonstrated "conclusively ' that
the disease" carijbei practically
eliminated f rom" an orchard , by
3. Good results can be obtainr
ed by spraying either with Bor
deaux mixture Or with lime-sul
phur solution. - The results so
far are slightly in favor of the
Bordeaux. " -
4. Some danger to foliasre ac
companies summer SDraviner with
either Bordeaux or lime-sulphur.
Ineretore, care should be exer
cised in preparing the spray and
in not using it too strong.
5. The Fall application seeirs
to be more efficient than anv oth
er single one. It should be mac e
as soon as possible after the late
fruit is gathered. -If San Jose
scale is present, lime-suhihur
should be used; if not, Bordeaux
may be used if preferred. This
Fall application, is beneficial also.
in controlling the peach twig
blight It is possible that one
annual Fall spraying may be all
that is necessary to control the
twig-blight and the fruit-spot.
6. Spraying just as the buds
are swelling in Spring is useless
as a preventive of peach fruit-
spot This is, however, the most
important application for the con
trol of peach leaf curl and should
not be omitted if this disease has
been prevalent V
7. Peach fruit-spot attacks
the fruit between about May 10
and June 15.
8. The first Spring sprayiner.
therefore, should be done about
May 10; the second about June 1.
If the disease 1ias been unusually
prevalent or if rainy weather
favorable to the growth of the
fungus occurs, the second appli
cation may be 'made about May
20 to 25 and a third one about
June 5 to 10. . -

A SAFE PLACE
COMMERCIAL CLUB TABLES HIS
PROPOSITION TO BUILD ROAD.
WANTS BETTER THAN C. 8 A.
Eugenites Listen to Mr. Carver's Pro
posal to Build a Road for $40,000,
but Prefer to Wait a Little While
Before Making Decision.
Stephen Carver, builder of the
Corvallis & Alsea railway ' who
1 proposed to build fifteen miles of
road in Lane county on a bonus
of $40,000, was before the Eugene
Commercial Club Monday night
to make clear his proposition,
but the Eugene people insist
that they want something better
than the C & A. Of the meet
ing held the Engene Register
says: : ' "
"Pursuant to call a meeting
was held at the Commercial
club last evening to hear a prop
osition from Stephen Carver to
build a road from Eugene to
Elmira a distance of 15 miles,
for a bonus of. $40,000 and the
right of way. ' President Thomp
son called the meeting to order
and read Mr. Carver's f proposi
tion which was in effect that if

in operation he would build the
road. , ; .
"Mr. Carver was called . on
and stated that he had 4 noticed
from the Eugene1 papers that an"
effort was' being made to raise
$150,000 with which to build the
first section of such a road as he
proposed and he was ready to "
build the same distance ' for a "
bonus of $40,000. When ques-'
tioned, Mr, Carver said he would
not agree to build the . road any
further or if he did he would
want more money. He said his
plan was to build so much and
then work up tonnage for the
amount completed before extend
ing it on. He said it would coat '
$150,000 to $160,000 to build and
equip a road from here to Elmira.
"C. S. Williams followed Mr.
Carver and said he thought
Carver's proposition too indefi
nite as he does not agree to ex
tend the line beyond Elmira and
what Eugene wants is a road to
tidewater. Mr. Williams thoueht
if the Carver - road to Elmira
would be no better than his road
out of Corvallis it could be built
for the $40,000. Carver replied "
by saying he would leave
the matter of the kind of road to
an attorney selected by Eueene
people when the contract would
be drawn. ,
"After much discussion Julius
Goldsmith said, since Eueene..
wants a road to tidewater we
onght to hold Carver's proposi
tion in abeyance until he can
offer us a plan that would have -us
