A WARM SESSION
THE LIVE WIRES STIR UP THE
ROAD SUPERVISORS BY MEEf-
ING WITH COUNTY COURT.
NOT SO FAR APART LN POLICY
When Once All Interests Are Made to
Understand What Each Wants
Savarsl Short Ad- '
Declaring that tbe Live Wires of
tbe Commercial Club were trying to
array tbe members of the county court
againat. tbe country in favor of the
city by the contemplated appointment
of a road mauler or road engineer, J.
W. Exon. a Methodist minister and a
former Willamette River steamboat
pilot, created a mild sensation yes
terday afternoon. He was called to
account by O. D. Eby, H. E. Cross
and others. Mr. Eby declaring that
nothing Is further from the purpose
of tbe Commercial Club than to stir
up strife between the city and coun
try and laying stress upon the -fact;
that Oregon City is continually trying
to get into cloner touch with the peo
ple of the rural routes. "
"I hope Mr. Exon will come down
here and get acquainted," said Mr.
Eby, "and Ms mind will be disabused."
Mr. Eby. pleaded for a system of
general supervision of road and bridge
construction and Indorsed the proposal
to hold a meeting of the supervisors,
along with others interested In the
road problem of Clackamas county.
The county court patiently listened
to pro and con arguments on the ques
tion of the appointment of a road en
gineer throughout the greater part of
Krlduy afternoon, but did not indicate
what ita decision would be. Mr. Exon
and J. W. Roots, Ibe' Boring supervis
or, antagonized the proposal to name
a general supervisor, Roots stating It
would be unpopular and advancing tbe
(dea that an engineer would make mis
takes, as well as the supervisors. Mr.
Exon presented a petition asking the
court not to appoint road engineer.
These are some of the petitions that
were circulated through the agency
of George Oglesby, the Marks Prairie
supervisor, with the knowledge of
County Commltwioners Blair and Mat
toofl. ' -
Hi E. Cross, chairman of the Live
Wire road committee, read tbe law
authorizing tbe appointment of a road
engineer and argued in favor of the
plan. He Bald he was not in sympa
thy with the road bills now In the
legislature and insisted that the State
has all the law necessary.
"Each supervisor haa his own plan,"
said Mr. Cross, and with 65 supervis
ors, we probably have 55 different
plans. How many1 good supervisors
have you got in Clackamas county?
Judge Ryan told me there were five
out of the 35 while he was on the
bench. In four years we have expend
ed $489,000, outside of the money
rained by special taxes. Last year we
paid 51 supervisors more than $1,000
per month. No work except repairs
should be done In tho winter months,
but for the five winter months we
have spent $130,428 SI in the last four
years, Lst month tho road money
disbursed amounted to $2742.50. Next
year tbe county plans to spend $125,
000 on the roads, and pay off $48,000
road Indebtedness, and the court Is
practically at the mercy of 66 men.
The lack of definite plans result in a
waste of one-third of all the money
Mr. - Roota explained that the ex
pense Incurred in January of this year
was mainly by the old supervisors,
and not by tbe Incoming men. Mr
Exon stated there was no class of
men In the State who worked harder
than the Clackamas road supervisors.
"One engineer cannot possibly over
see the work In 65 districts," said Mr.
Exon. "Three men might do it, but
It would be costly and it is better to
put the money on the roads. Each
community is Bolving Its own road
problem. If a roadmaster la appoint
ed, the districts will refuse to vote
special taxes. I believe the court
should be held responsible. The sup
ervisors are generally a competent
body of men who work economically.
Milt Marshall, at Garfield, makes
crushed rock road for $1500 a mile.
You people here In Oregon City are
giving the country people the wrong
Impression, and they have been Ig
nored about this meeting. You ought
to go about this In an educational way.
All we expect from the court la our
own proportion of the road taxes. You
are putting the country people against
the town. When there was a read en
gineer, all the work was done around
Frank Jaggar, for many years sup
ervisor at Beaver Creek, talked on
road eonatructlon and went Into detail.
He aald he had been a resident of
the county 88 years, and had lived on
a road where It waa not possible to
haul more than 10 Backs of potatoes
In a load.
"The Molalla road waa then an In
dian trail," said Mr. Jacgar. "Road
making In Clackamaa county la an ex
pensive Job. In seme places a road
master would be at Httle use and In
other placea he eowld certainly be of
ranch uae. Road soaking has become
a aeleaea, and tee work of David
Klaaiaardt the forxoer rood engineer,
will show aa long as the county atanda.

"Tela liaott e eat lea of tha eeen
try against the city," said Mr. Miller,
"but It Is to get the most we can for
our money. Your work should be laid
out. On some roads It costs the far
mer 11 rents per mile per ton to get
his produce to market."
"Anyone who looks at this matter
seriously would favor the appointment
of a road master," declared Mr. Mof
fatt, who said the Oregon City sus
pension bridge Is now In a dangerous
condition, and remarked that It
seemed to be more necessary to get
a politician than aa euxlur in order
to harmonize tbe conflicting elements.
