Petty politic and factionalism are

to charge made last night at an in

While alj department of The Orrgonlan
venture to prophesy that as yeanr go I punt worked hard in getting out tli
mammoth annual edition that baa a
traded such favorable comment In
part or the Northwest, th greatest
train, probably, was borne by the corps
of pressmen who labored Incessantly in
the basement amid the roar of the nion
star machine that print the papers at
tno rate or nearly uttfv an hour.
5me of the men remained on duty
steadily for 4 hours, while many among
them did not leave the pressroom for S4
hour. F. K. Young, the foreman, after
working overtime nearly every day last
week In printing the six section of the
anniversary number, went to bed at 11
o'clock Saturday morning. At 4 o'clock
Saturday afternoon he waa called bark
to his post to superintend the press work
on the supplemental edition of 40.OJ0
copies which the steady demand for
paper necessitated. He arrived at the
ofT.ca at o'clock Saturday evening and
did not leave again until 7 o'clock Mon
day evening. , In that time lie alept but

devoted to Informal discussion of the

Wednesday night, or at the call of Dr.

Politician Cause of Delay.
Dr. Andrew C. Smith. In discussing
the present status of the measures, said
he thought any objection to them must
be baaed upon lack of understanding of
the purpose af the proposed laws. Added

These extra hour and added "over

but even had the second edition not gone
to press the men would have performed
a remarkable feat, iney worked vir
tually 10 extra days In running of the
five special sections f the anniversary
number. It generally required two

contained four colors each, and much
extra time waa required In preparing
them for the run. Three sections were

The Sunday Oresonlan.
In thla wonderful -rnmpllshment not
a nil'hap occurred. Not a single piece

"At th regular meeting- of Multno

February k. 11 1, the following resolu
tions were unanimously adopted:
Whereaa. The Oregonlan celebrated
Ita fiftieth anniversary February .

a number of demagogue and peanut
politicians. Dr. Smith said. .
'There Is no Intention, said he. "of
providing for a state highway or high
way. Our puropse Is to secure a series
of county highways leading to the prin
cipal markets. These highwsys. as a
aeries of units, form tha state system.
The good road movement has nothing
to do with politic. It must be kept free
from politics. Our ultimate aim la to
maintain a system of good roads under
in efficient head and under the super
vision of three unpaid cltlxens of the
highest type. The good roads movement
Is of vital Interest to all the people and
means the greater and broader develop
ment of the state.
John S. Beall expressed th fear that
the billa are being held up by petty
politicians. -I have reasons for believ
ing." said he. "that they are being held
up aa a whip to drive favorable legls
la tors Into line of support on other
measures. There la a decided factional
ism In the Leglalatur this yeur. I
think, though, that tonight tha outlook
la excellent for the passage of th billa."
Commission Bill Important.
The most Important of the fire bills
that th association Is fighting for pro
vides the creation of a commission to
supervise the construction of highwnya
In the verlous counties of Oregon with
the co-operation of a salaried supervisor
who shall receive I40DO a year. The su
pervisor must be a competent engineer
and road builder. t
The second bill provides for the ap
propriation of SKRO.vOO for highway. Thla
la double the amount that was decided
on at first by th association and the
increase waa made at the auggeatlon of
some of those who alnce have ahown a
tendency to fight th appropriation, it
The third bill make possible the Is
suance of bonds by counties for construc
tion of roads, giving; the county exclu
sive right to decide on Issue and direct
the course of the roads. Two smaller
bills give the state and counties au
