Farmers Who Started Proceedings Now
; Pray for Abandonment. " .
A roadway over which ' litigation
has been carried to the supreme court
was given consideration, and final ac
tion taken, today, when the county
court acted on a' petition of Henry
Young t al, to abandon the road'
through the Palmer Lumber company
yards. This, roadway was abandoned
through the Instrumentalities of the
Commercial club when the Palmer
milt was built that the company might
hav ample yard facilities. Several
farmers living ou the north Bide of
the river opposed the abandonment
and took the case through the circuit
court to the supreme court where It
was decided In favor of the petitoiners
to have the road again opened up. In
the mean ime, thousands of feet of
lumber had been piled on this former
highway. : .. ' . , . . .'.
Now, however, the farmers 1a that
section have been offered and takn
relief in a substitute road and were
the ones who petitioned the county
courf to permanently ; abandon this
road, even though It was con:rary to
th dictates of the supreme court who
gave the farmers'' there the right to
that Toad if theydpsired. The. settle

DR. JIOLITOR AXD ATTORNEY
HESS RETURN FROM NORTH.
Had a Pleasant Outlay but Believe
Opportunities Are Better Here. .
Returning from Canada today where
they had been enjoying an outing of
several weeks and at the same time
investigating coraimroial condiloms
of the Dominion, Dr. N. Molitor and
Attorney Franklin Hess, the lattar
an old schoolmate of the doctor's, were
decisive In stating that Canada was a
nice place to visit hut so far as they
can obSH ve no place for opportunity
as compared with the land under the
stars and stripes. .''".
Mr. Hess is the chief legal counsel
for the Chicago division of the Inter
national Harvester company and hailu
from Illinois where he and the doctor
spent their childhood. They mt at
Vancouver, B. C, by appointment sev
eral weeks ago and together they trav
ersed the country owned by the crown.
In speaking of Prince- Rupert they
what of, a city thiere but It is doubtful
if there will be what the Bangulne
promoters claim , for It. The trans
continental railroad will reach Prince
Rupert but at th same time it will
also reach VancouvfcT, B. C, which
means only a little longer haul. Some
think the fact that Vancouver Is al
ready built and equipped for com
merce will cause much of the business
to go that way even if It is a trifiu
nearer to the Prince Rupert harbor. :
A railroad now extends inland 90
miles. This the doctor and his fr'uil
took and after using various other
means of transportation, reached Haz
elton, an Inland city of several thou
sand. They pronounced it a good in
land cl y of Its size.
When asked what advice should be
given to Oregon people relative to the
Canadian country Dr. Molitor said:
"Tell all who aw bothered with wan
derlust to go and see for themselves,
but my guess is they ' will return to
Oregon be ter satiafled to remain btre
than ever before."" ' ,
, Mr. Hess will remain here for sev
eral days thif guest of Dr. and Mrs.
Molitor. ' . . , -

"Engrossing" was an offense punish
able In England by fine and Imprison
ment, and the lawn agRlnst It struck at
those called "engrossers" who plan
ned to guln control over necessities,
such as grain or foodstuffs in consid
erable quantities, either by purchase or
otherwl.se. with the Intention of raising
prices. The statute book holds quite a
series of enactments designed to pre
vent anything In the nature of what
we know as a "corner" or "combine."
"Regratlng" was : a criminal offense,
and no wns "forestalling." The former
consisted of buying and selling the
tame day In the same market or near
It, and the Intter Implied the purchase
of merchandise on the way to market
or before the hour at which the market
commenced with the Intention of Bell
ing ut a protlt while It was also "fore
stalling" to circulate rumors calculated
to raise the price of commodities.
