Aa to the clipping handed mo from
the Katucada ProgreaN, I beg to say
that there waa no appropraltlon of
$1600 or any other definite amount
made for road oiling. Tho auto license
waa received from tho aecretnry of
state, January 14, 1915. amount being
$1647.82. This amount was at once
turned Into the general road fund of
tho county by County Treasurer Dunn,
according to tho requirements of the
state law. It has been used as other
money hi the general fund Is use for
road and bridge purposes.
As to the money having gone as
tray or having bn given to Ed Olds
for machinery, that la pure fabrication,
Mr. Olds having no now machinery tliBt
I recall except a road grader purchased
Jointly between his dlstrlot and Hist.
If tho road oilliiR machine Is referred
to, that Is the property of the whole
county,' and Is an equipment for heat
ing and spreading asplmltum,
In ordor to get tha "oily mesB" of
nrudo pournalisin entirely surrounded
I might summnrlr.e by saying:
Road oiling cost the county $346.07,
Oil was spread on two roads on the
east side of tho Willamette river. No
oil was used on the west side, although
some should have been, to protect the
Bitrface of tho west aide road, which
carries a heavy traffic. No oil was
used on asphalt surface roads built
'ast year. We spread no oil in Mult
nomah county, as reported. We never
had any dealings with the Oregon City
Auto club In regurd to fund for oiling
roads, although we doubtless talked
with members of the club about the
matter, as well as with others who are
not members.

Navigation on the Willamette la at
a alandxtlll aa a result of the lack of
water In the lock a, a condition which
prevented the larger river boats from
reaching the upper river.
The Grahamona, oT the Oregon City
Transportation company, was the first
boat held back Wednesday and the 200
Porllanders on their way to valley hop
fields spent three hours wandering
along the river bank on the aest aide
of the river until a transfer was made
to a boat on the upper river. The Gra
hamona draws two b et of water while
the lower lock chamber had only 1.8
feet M edneaday morning.
The Ruth and the Ung, of the Wil
lamette Navigation company, each
drawing SO Inches, have been unable
to go through the kicks for the last two
and a half weeks and have baen unable
to reach the platforms usually used
In loading paper from the Crown Wil
lamette mills and a long haul with
hand trucks has been necessary to
reach the boats.
Money hss not been appropriated
for the deepening of the locks and Con
gressman Mawley is at present prepar
ing to urge an appropraltlon of $83,000
for this work. The effect of the work
of the government engineers during
the last spring and winter in estab

Oregon actually dry. If there are any
criminal lawyers who deelre to adver

"Oregon City dry" has been marked

under Mr. BrowneH'e observation. The
Anderson dry law has about ten times
the drough producing possibilities
which the local option law had. If the
criminal lawyer could be barred from

knock a home-run every time the ball
was pitched. These are the gentle
men who have Injected the curve ball,
the fade-away, the spltball, the mud

other hooks, crooks, twists, curves and
salivary slants on the wet side. For
the benefit of these worshipers of tech

suggest that, due to the insistence of

eminent criminal lawyer Is advising a
bibulous brother how to secure liquor
from outside the state, (when the law
prohibits him from receiving any ad'
vertisement circulars, letters, price
lists, solicitation or Information, when
he does not know who has It where it
Is, nor what the price of It is) that his
good wife, with equally able legal coun
sel, may first secure It, and, having se
cured it smash it; and. having smash

spouse a period of drouth for the next

to prime himself to spit, and put him
self to soak In the bath tub before he
can hold soup if, indeed, he does not

sible. ' .
