Some Questions to Puzzle the Friends
of the Lane County Commissioners
In response to an attack upon the
editor of The Sentinel made by E.
J. Horton, of Junction City, and
published in both Eugene papers,
the editor of The Sentinel submit-
ted the following questions to Mr.
Horton through The Guard:
Why was it necessary to pay to
the Warren construction company
for rock for the Lorane road $5000
more than a bona fide offer made
to the county!
Why was the Warren Construc
tion company relieved of the $25-a-
day penalty on this road, a total of
Why did the commissioners dis
regard the law and contract a debt
of $2400 in trading one road roller
for another old road roller!
Why does the company which
profited by the trade refuse to an
swer questions as to when this old
roller was made, how long it has
been used and what it was actually
How did it happen that the com
missioners were so insistent upon
changing the report of thoir own
engineer upon the excavation of the
Cheshier north road, when doing so
meant a profit of many thousand
dollars to the contractor!
Do you think it happened just ac
cidentally that the price for inter
mediate upon this job was $1.90,
when the average price theretofore
paid by the county, as shown by
the records, for exactly the same
kind of excavation was 60 cents!
Explain how it was possible that
one yard of earth moved was worth
37 cents and the next yard moved
with the same equipment and at
practically the same expense was
worth $1.90, or five times as much.
How does it come that these com
missioners came to adopt the policy
of consid“ring their county engineer
a mere errand boy when former
commissioners had implicit trust in
Tho commissioners will tell you
that it is up to them to share the
responsibility with the engineer and
that the engineer was not giving
the contractors a square deal upon
the Cheshire north road; that some
of the dirt was slightly more ex-
pensive to move than common,
Grant that such was the case and
answer these questions:
If the commissioners were so sym
pathetic for the poor contractors,
why didn’t the contractors imitate
the example of the commissioners
and reduce the price to what it
should have been! Why did they
insist upon taking advantage of tho
accidental (!) fact that they had a
bid in at more than twice what it
was worth to move intermediate!
The commissioners had the contrac
tor over a barrel. They could have
accepted their engineer’s figures, as
other county courts have done, in
which case the contractor could
have whistled for his $1.90 the yard.
Why didn’t they insist that the
contractors emulate the commission
ers’ noble example of playing fair
instead of demanding their pound
Did you ever hear of a contractor
returning to the couuty any part of
an excess profit!
If not, why are the commissioners
so solicitous for the welfare of
those who have no sympathy for
Do you approve of the county fur
nishing traveling expenses for a
candidate for office, which seems
to be the principal idea behind the
appointment of a candidate for
sheriff to a special inspector’s job!
Don’t you believe it was extrava
gant to pay $1000 for legal ser
vices to an outside attorney for ad
vice which the commissioners af
terwards refused to follow!
Mr. Sharp holds a personal grudge
against a certain manufacturer of
goods used in large quantities by
the county. Do you think that he
acted as a commissioner should
when he stated to this manufacturer
(using some of the ribald languag
that characterizes his conversation)
that this manufacturer could not
sell to the county regardless of
quality or price!

You use the forests when you
build a home, when you eat a meal,
when you read a newspaper, when
you go camping or hunting, when
you drive an automobile, when you
ride on a train, when you go to a
movie, when you build a fire.
In these and hundreds of other
things you do, you use the forestB
—every day—in one form or an
other. Abundant forests stand for
a better America, a higher standard
of living, happier and more pros
perous homes, a greater outdoors,
better fishing and hunting, more
beautiful roads, more wild flowers
and wild life—for all that makes
for a better, cleaner and healthier
life—you, Mr. American Citizen, are
using your forest capital more than
five times faster than it is being

account in that manner what would
