The League adopted a resolution
asking the Portland city council to
grant a telephone franchise to the
Empire telephone company. The
latter is an organization .independent
of present telephone systems. . It is
a part of the rural system recentiy
described in the Times as under
consideration. ,It .. proposes rural
telephones on every , country ; road
and in every home in westsidecounr
ties at nominal expense. , It is be
ing pushed in , Washington,. Yam
hill and Polk counties, and is to be
taken up in Benton. . The plan is
for every neighbor to talk with any
other neighbor, i either ; in city or
country at any time at a minimum
cost. The League .appointed Z.j

BY VOLUNTEER WORK.
Striving to Make Banner Road in
Benton Farmers are Doing it.
i The prospect is that the banner
road in Benton County next winter
will be a stretch of several miles on
the Albany route, northeast of Cor
vallis. The residents in - that sec
tion have taken the matter in their
own hands, and are building what
is destined, to be a permanent highway.-
The stretch begins at Stew
arts bridge and extends as far north
ward as the Scholl farm. Every
farmer along the line has put teams
and men on the work, and through
out the distance the road, is -being
completely rebuilt. - r T
The plan comprises a double grad
ing. . Alter the first graae is com
pleted the heavy county roller is put
on and . the r sdirt ' ' is " packed t as
firimly as eight or ten tons weight
repeatedly passing over can press
it. - .Then after-, ploughing , along
the sides a second grading is resor
ted to, and the roller set to :, work
again. - r- "
To complete the system: scientific
drainage is provided for, with
ditches on each side, the levels of
which, are established by the coun
ty surveyor, who was' out on the
line yesterday' with his instruments.
Whenever - necessary, . culverts,
under the road draining one ditch
into the other, are provided for.
The south ends of the drainage
ditches emotv into the stream at
the bridge, and furthur 'north, the
drainage goes in an opposite di
rection, and is finally carried away
from the road through , a - waste
ditch constructed for : the' . purpose.
No attempt -will be jnade to giavel
the new road this season. .. 1
; The new bridge and the;; reduct-i
ion of the grade at Stewart's hill
adds materially to the. new stretch
of road. The grade at the point is
scarcely one-half what it .formerly
was. - On the same road, some.disv
tance this side of Stewart's bridge, .
the county is preparing to ,. build a
considerable stretch of permanent
road. The latter is to ba about a
quarter of a , mile in length, ;and
when all is completed there . is , no
doubt, unless other communities are
seized with a desire for best roads,
the Corvallis end" -of the f Albany
road will be'by far the" best high
way in the county. ' '" ; . ' ' ',
