Specifications Being Prepared and
It Is Hoped to Have Work
Under Way Within SO Days.
Bond Election. Questioned.
The important question of what types
f pavement on which bids will be
asked for the hard-surfacing: of 70 miles
of highway in Multnomah County was
settled by the County Commissioners
yesterday at a conference with Koad
The Commissioners decided to have
specifications prepared for the following-
eight types of pavement:
Prick on a concrete base.
Belgian blocks on a concrete base.
One course concrete.
Wood blocks on a concrete base.
At the same time the Commissioners,
by request of Roadmaster Teon, ap
pointed Herbert Nunn as engineer under
Mr. Teon. to be in charge of the coun
tv's entire hs rd-surf aclnff operations.
Itis salary will be S150 a month. Mr.
Nunn was one of fovtr men considered
in the appointment of a State Highway
Knglneer to succeed Major Bowlby. He
has had experience in paving work and
Is well recommended.
Spcrlflcatlons Bring Prepared.
Mr. Nunn is now preparing: the speci
fications for the eight types of pave
ment. With the exception of those for
concrete pavement, they will be prac
tically identical with the standard city
pecitications, though there will be a
few changes to meet different condi
tions. For one-course concrete the
more modern specifications which, ac
cording to Commissioner Holbrook,
have given satisfaction In Pierce Coun
ty, Washington, will be adopted.
Mr. Nunn is expected to .have the
mecinVations prepared within two or
three days, so that they can be adver
tised at once and bids asked. They
must bo advertised for 20 days, so that
it Is probable bids can be accepted, con
tracts let and actual pavlns started
within a month.
The Commissioners, as provided by
law, will also consider bids on any
other specifications that contractors
The Commissioners have not as yet
worked out the problem as to whether
bids on the specifications adopted will
be asked for all the roads to be paved,
or whether certain types of pavement
v.'ill be designated for certain roads, or
sections of road, but it Is probable that
bids will be asked cn a square yard
basis. This would leave the Commis
sion free to accept as many square
yards of one or several types of paving
as in the Judgment of roadmaster and
engineer Is needed'.
Different Types May Be I'sed.
Older such a plan the engineer would
designate the roads on whh one type
of paving would seem metet desirable,
and awards must be madf accordingly
for the type of paving beit adapted to
the special conditions. - -
The legality ot the $1.25. 000 road
bond issue was questioned in a letter
received by District Attorney Evans
yesterday from Storey. Thorndike, Pal
mer & Dodge, a Boston firm of bond at
torney?. The bond lawyers say they want some
proof that sufficient legal notice of the
election had been published. It is not
enough, they hold, that County Clerk
Coffey should mail each judge and clerk
two copies of the election notices. It
must be learned whether the election
oflicials did their duty In posting: these
notices. This is because only 24.702
votes were cast, which is not 50 per
vent of the registered vote.
Deputy District Attorney Murphy
took the technical-objection in charge
and figured that it would cost a small
fortune to learn from each of the 3834
election officials whether the notices
had been posted.
According to the Oregon law the
order of the County Court declaring the
result of an election shall be absolutely
conclusive proo; as to the regularity of
Mr. Murphy said he hoped to remove
the technical objection so it would not
delay the sale of the bonds. Bids on
the bonds are to be received May 12.
FRAUD DEMURRER UPHELD
Issue Won Over Charge of "Under
valuing Timber Claims.
A demurrer to the indictment against
Carlos Byron, a Seattle timber dealer,
and Frank E. Alley, well-known Rose-
burg attorney, in which they were
charged with having attempted to de
fraud the Government by undervaluing
timber and stone claims In applications
riled with the register of the Roseburg
land office, was sustained yesterday
r,y Judge Bean in the Federal Court.
The demurrer was prepared and argued
by the defendants attorney, K. M.
Comyns, of Seattle.
Clarence Reames. United States Dis
trict Attorney, announced In court that
an appeal will be taken from Judge
Bean s ruling to tne United States Su
Mr. Alley, as attorney for Mr. Byron,
filed applications for six timber and
stone claims in Southern Oregon for
persons sent him by Mr. Byron. The
applications set forth that the claims
were worth $425 each, but the Govern
ment alleged that their value was
The court sustained the demurrer to
the Indictment on the ground that an
application to purchase a timber claim
was not a claim against the Govern
ment within the meaning of the statute.

Wilson T. Hume sat on the witness
stand in Circuit Judge Gatens court
yesterday and told how he had been
shot in the back by F. A. Consentlno

excuse for shooting Hume.
"I had told. Consentlno to leave tne
office and not come back," said Mr.
Hume. "I stood with my back or my
side to the door talking for a few min
utes, and had almost forgotten the in
cident. Suddenly the man i was tam
ing to glanced toward the door behind
me and said, 'My God. that's awful!' 1
looked over my shoulder just in time
to see a puff of smoke and a flash and
feel the bullet hit me in the back. There
were two more puffs of smoke and two
more flashes, and then it stopped.
"I didn t see anybody at tne time. J.
walked out another door of my office,
went through the hall, and looked into
the room from which the shooting had
come. There stood (jonsentino, witn
his back to me, leveling his revolver at
the partly open door, apparently wait
ing for me to come out."
Mr. Hume then told or examining nis
wound. In the courtroom he wore the
same suit of clothes he had worn when
he was shot. He showed to the Jury
the bullet hole almost in the center of
the back of the coat, and a similar hole
through the vest. A pair of suspenders
which he had worn were introduced as
evidence, and showed that the bullet
had pierced the edge of the "cross in
the back of the suspenders.
The bullet had come out in front ot
Mr. Hume's left shoulder, but had not
gone through his shirt.
The trial will be resumed today.

Nov. 23, 1914: "All my life my face
was covered completely with a mass of
pimples, blackheads and blotches. I
spent a lot of money on numerous
remedies and treatments without suc
cess and. no relief at all. I tried so
many things that I was afraid my ease
could not be cured. Resinol Ointment
and Resinol Soap seemed to do me good
right from the first. I used two jars
of Resinol Ointment and some Resinol
Soap, the total cost being only $2.00.
and this completely cured my case. My
