town of Clatekauie, where they intend
to erect large dry houses, planing anil

gunian. Home 2800 feet of flume Is al
ready completed and the material for
construction Is flurried "to the front,"
thus greatly expediting the work, the
planks, etc.. being all cut to the right
lengths and fitted at the mill. The

with water, nothing can stop on It, but
must hurry on to the exit. The com

Legislation for Roads.
Nearly every atate in the nnion is tak
ing some active measures to secure bet
ter public highways and many of them
are appropriating large sum of money
each year to be used in constructing
roads on improved plans. Results show
that the investment of the public funds
in improvement of that kind haa been
profitable one. In some instances
saving of aa high as 60 per cent has
been made the people in the annual out
lay for vehicles and horse and the ad
vance in the property valuation aa a
result of the improved transportation
facilities ha greatly exceeded all expec
tation. In spits of the experiences of
other state and the fact that an im-
Jiroved condition of tbe public thorough
ares is needed here more badly than in
almost any other portion of the coun
try, Oiegon legislatures obstinately re
fuse to enact any measures that will
bring relief to the people. They not
only refuse to make appropriations of
state funds for road building but they will
not even pas laws so that the money
raised by tbe people through special
taxation can be judiciously expended.
One great drawback which Oregon has
to contend with il the fact that there is
