doubt that the bill will receive the
votes or some senators who' are ut

JACK LODER IS
BOY PLAYS. WITH A DYNAMITE
CAP AND WILL PROBABLY
LOSE RIGHT EYE?
CREW (MESSKESS APPARENT
While Parent Ar At Luncheon, Their
Son' Childish CuHosity Causes
Him to Play With Pow
Jack Loder, the only child of Attor
ney and Mrs. John W. Loder, was
frightfully Injured Saturday afternoon
by the explosion of a dynamite cap
that the little fellow found on the
front porch of th Loder residence on
Center street. Th fore or the ex
plosion severely lacerated the right
side or the boy's head and he will
probably' lose the sight or his right
eye and may become disfigured for
life aa a result of the accident
- Center street is being Improved and
the 'Workmen have been using dyna
mite in blasting out the rocks. Since
this work has been In progress Mrs.
Loder has been very careful and haa
warned her aon more than once not
to play In the street or to go Into al
most certain danger-
At 1 o'clock Saturday arternoon,
while Mr. and Mrs. Loder were fin
ishing their luncheon, the boy Jumped
from the table and went out on the
wide veranda to play. He picked up
the dynamite cap and with boyish
curiosity took It into the basement to
Investigate. Mr. and Mrs. Loder
heard a hammer pounding, and sud
denly the boy uttered a terrible
scream and his horror stricken par
ents rushed to the scene to rind their
son In agony, but conscious, and able
to tell them where h found the ex
Dr. M. C. Strickland was hurriedly
summoned and the Injured lad was
rushed to a Portland hospital, where
his wounds received attention.
It Is apparent that some one has
been criminally careless in leaving a
dynamite cap where It would rail into
unskilled hands. It Is not known how
the cap was brought to the porch, un
less it had previously been placed
there. There Is no susplcon, however.
that harm was Intended and the un
fortunate occurrence Is probably due
to the carelessness of someone.
UNUSUAL METHOD ADOPTED IN
SENDING OUT PETITIONS TO
PROCEDURE IS RATHER REMAXXAEIE
Commissioners M jit toon and Blair Not
Witling to Try Now Systom Ev
en in Face of Dlmlck's As
The fine art of moulding public sen
timent la detected In the circulation -of
petitions throughout Clackamas
County asking the county court not to
appoint a road superintendent. In
vesLgatlon Saturday proved that tha
petitions to the number of 35 or 40
were mailed to road supervisors snd
others by George Ogleaby, supervisor ,
for the Marks prairie district, and Mr.
Oglesby admitted that he had the pe
tition printed and sent out at the sug
gestion of County Commissioners Mat
toon and Blair who are understood to
be opposed to change In the method
of constructing county roads.
These petitions were received more
than a week ago by many of the road
supervisors and there was nothing to
Indicate where they came from or by
whose authority they were mailed.
Several or the supervisors concluded
that the county court had forwarded
the petitions, and It waa then that
County Judge Beatle had his first In
timation of the existence of the pa
pers, by receiving telephone inquiries
from some or the supervisors, who
wanted to know If the court desired
the petition circulated.
Judge Beatle quickly made an In
vestigation, and about the same time
Attorney H. B. Cross, who haa been
foremost in urging the county court
to appoint a road engineer and adopt
a systematic plan of road building, ob
tained a copy of one of th petitions
that had been sent to Jamea Tracr,
or Gladstone. It waa round today that
the petitions were printed In the offlc ' -or
the Valley Publishing Co., at Caaby,
ror Mr. Ogleaby, who said, when called
up by telephone, that his object in
sending out the petitions had ba to
ascertain the septlment of the anpor- .
visor and farmers snd to obtain mm
expression, it being expected that tho
supervisor would place the petitions
in circulation and file them with th
county court at the time of filing their
monthly road reports next Wednesday.
Mr. Oglesby stated that th com
missioners had some knowledge of
It Is thought likely that tne petitions
were prompted by in effort that has
been made her for aeveral weeks by
the Live Wire to Induce the county
court to name a competent road mas
ter and to abandon the systom that
has been In vogue for a number of
years, under which th 55 supervisors
are a sort of law unto themselves and '
do not work Under general supervis
ion or by any concerted plan. Mr.
Cross was appointed chairman of a
committee of the Live Wires to pre
sent the matter to the court, and
few weeks ago Commissioners Mat
toon and Blair met with th Live
Wires and listened to arguments for
the appointment of a road engineer
and the adoption of a sensible system
of permanent road construction. Noth
ing definite came of thla meeting, ror
the two ffwimlasioners were rather
noncommittal and were not willing to
go on record as changing the present
so-called system. . ,
It waa at .this meeting that Formor
County Judge Grant B. Dimlck made
the astounding statement that during
his four years' administration that haa
Just ended, at leaBt one-fourth of all
the road money expended had been
practically wasted, because of the lack
of system, and that his attempt to
obtain the appointment or a road en-.(
glneer one year ago had been resisted
by Commissioners Lewellen and Mat
toon, who did not share his views a ,
to road construction.
