BT COLONEL B. HOFER.
ROSEBURG, Or., July 11. Much has
"been said In Southern Oregon papers
about some mysterious influence at
Portland seeking to divert tourist
travel from the Pacific Highway.
What are the facts?
Starting after nearly a week of
showers, .34 of an inch falling at Sa
lem in one day and a great deal
more in the mountains, would be a
good time to discover Impassable, con
ditions between Portland and Ashland
Beginning with the late State High
Tray Engineer's bad advertisement of
the Pacific Highway and followed by
Sam Hill's expressed preference for
north and south route through Central
Oregon, the main roads of Western
-Oregon have got an undeserved repu
tation. The unrefrigerated facts are that
Western Oregon counties, from Clatsop
to Curry on the coast, and the double
tier of counties between the coast
range and the Cascades, have better
main roads and have more miles of
graded, graveled and rocked roads
than any similar group of mountainous
counties of equal wealth and popula
tion in the United States, saying noth
ing about their enormous area. Clat
sop. Tillamook, Lincoln, Lane. Douglas.
Jackson and Klamath have emptied
their treasuries and plunged into debt
for good roads. Polk, Yamhill, Benton
and Clackamas have done likewise, and
Marion has made a start.
Overzealous good-roads enthusiasts
and Impatient get-roada-quick-at-any-prlce
millionaires, say nothing can be
done but by state bond issues. They
constantly give the impression that
'Western Oregon has no roads fit for
motoring. This with the Bowlby letter
to Seattle for a starter and a lot of
boosting for other routes and knocking
cf the Pacific Highway has doubtless
kept thousands from touring through
Western Oregon. Of course, after the
rains of last week, the roads were more
or less rough, but on Saturday in
motoring over 200 miles from Portland
south, through forests and over three
ridges of mountains, we found no mud.
no difficult places and a great deal of
Many Road Oiled.
The main roads through Polk County
are beautifully oiled. In contrast with
Marion County, where the finely graded
and graveled Pacific Highway from
Aurora to Salem, is being cut up and
blown away for lack of a few car
loads of crude oil. It seems to be a
geographic fact that as you approach
a state capital, where half the public
money of the commonwealth Is ex
pended, signs of distress and poverty
appear In the condition of the high
ways. Multnomah", that pays one-third
the state taxes, spends most on high
ways. Marion, that gets the greatest
sums from the state, spends the least
on main state roads. Salem people
should take this pointer from me un
less they do get a move on for oiling
the Pacific Highway, they will lose
tourist as well as state travel. The
main north and south roads from Port
land to Eugene, via Corvallis. are oiled
and smoothly taking the traffic. They
offer, besides,, a wealth of semi-mountainous
scenery from Portland to
Spencer's Butte, dustless roads that
make the 125-mile drive possible in a
big half-day with comfort and safety.
It has been driven In four and one-half
hours. Finer scenery and oiled roads
drawing away , traffic, may break the
civic stupor of even Marion County, to
say nothing of loss of business to
hotels, garages and banks. For they
do say motor travel puts a flood of
perfectly good checks in circulation.
The effect of better roads on the
West Side is noticeable In more pretty,
modern homes, more painted buildings,
more orchards and finer dairy herds.
The undevelopment condition of the
eastern side of the valley la due main
ly to chronic indifference ,to state of
Part of Road Oiled.
The West Side Pacific Highway is
oiled about half the distance from Port
land to Monroe and well graveled from
Monroe to Junction, where we strike
some of the crushed rock roads built
by Lane County the past five years.
Approaching Creswell we cross the his
torical Camas Swale, where in pioneer
days a toll road was maintained as a
great enterprise. Its owner collected
i from each team that came across.
Not many years since Lane County
was forced to buy back the old toll
road. It Is now macadamized and the
motor car tourists rush over it at 30
miles an hour, oblivious of the fact
that 50 years ago the immigrants
toiled slowly over this mile of cordu
roy and cursed the monopoly as round
ly as we do Standard Oil, Southern Pa
cific, etc. But the immigrant had his
choice. He could pay the dollar and
go over a mile of good road, or go
around and take his chances of miring
down on a trail that followed the foot
hills for five or six miles. He gen
erally paid the dollar as a tribute to
good roads. There are no bad places
on the Pacific Highway In Lane County.
We. must have met 100 cars, coming
north the first half day out, and none
were broken down or reported any
particular hardship. We covered 112
miles the first 5 hours and 20 minutes.
The Pass Creek Canyon part of -the
Pacific Highway has been pictured as
the nightmare of motorists, as famou
for its terrors as the Kex-Tigardvllle
abomination of yore, but four times as
long. Both will pass away like a bad
dream as these blots on the good roads
fame of Douglas and Washington are
Road Bring Repaired.
The north entrance to Pass Creek is
planked and macadamized, as are sev
eral .stretches that formerly produced
profuse profanity. Rock crushers are
stationed at several places. Road
graders are at work. We made the
23 Jmiles from Cottage Grove to
Yoncolla in one and a half hours.
Western Oregon main roads are not
hard-surfaced, but are good smooth
traveling lust the same. They are free
from sand, mud and dust at present
and will be all Summer more free from
those pe6ts of motoring than any other
section of the United States. '
There are good travelable roads to
every seaport and Summer resort on
the west coast of Oregon. 1 These roads
are all delightful for motoring, espe
cially in the coast mountains and down
the west slopes and around the bays.
I met, cars of all kinds, some carrying
heavy loads with camping outfits,
coming and going, via Grants Pass and
Eureka, and they all said the coast
route to California' was 23 degrees
cooler than through the Interior. But
it is some farther-in distance and the

Tho Crawfish had Intended to
let the matter of the discussion
that has been going- on between
the Pacifists and the advocates
of armed preparedness, drop for
a time, owing to -the advent of
the hot weather and a corre
sponding disinclination to tir up
strife in the land. ,
It has been called to oar at
tention, however, that the up
holders of sbe doctrine that uq
preparedneaa makes for peace
have been overlooking; a bet for
a Ions time and The Crawfish
feels that they should be ap
prized of that fact.
We had the pleasure of tak
ing the trip op the Columbia
Highway the other day, over the
same route that Ad Bennett and
his party of hardy pioneers au
tomobtled a few days later. In
addition to the striking and in
teresting scenery we noted, it
occurred to us after we returned
what a remarkably effective
"avenue do getaway" the Co
lumbia Highway would furnish
for our local colony of Pa c if lata
in case of an Invasion of the
Pacific Coast by a foreign foe.
We -waxed so enthusiastic over
the idea, that we could almost
conjure up a vision of the pro
cession of our most popular dove
fanciers trundling their Lares
and Penates before them in a
mad rush for the wilds of Wasco
County, while a foreign, foe
prodded them from behind with
a sharp stick.
But in the same moment we
realized that If the road were
permitted to remain, with Its
strategic possibilities as a skl-doo-fvajr
into the Interior, It
would constitute, after Us fash
ion, a piece of military pre
paredness. And the doctrine of the day
is that military preparedness is
to be shunned like the three-'
cornered bottle they pack car
bolic acid In,
We hate to think of It, but

that our local college of Pacifists
didn't think of It before we had
to point it out to them.

With this as his text. Rev. A. B. Cal
der. pistor of Trinity Methodist Epis
copal Church, preached a sermon last
night that was full of helpful sugges
tions. Ills subject waa "Procrastina
tion." Lr. Calder said: "Procrastination,
the thief of time, la ever planning for
tomorrow. Life is to ba reformed to
morrow. The soul Is to be saved to
morrow. But tomorrow never cornea.
"Procrastination bars the door to
achievement. It paves the way for
doubt, remorse and fear. Do not put
off receiving Christ and his blessings.
There is no time like the present.

Tree." His text was from the Song of
Solomon, chapter 11. verse X. Dr.
Smith likened th apple tree unto the
common, average man. th Indispen
sable, dependable person who does the
world's work and upon whom the world
has to rely.
"The apple tree, to be a success, must
be carefully pruned." said the speaker,
"and tha man or woman to be a suc

of the pruning process. The hard places
In life, the troubles bravely borne, tha
difficult Irs staunchly overcome, th
sorrows that have been lived down and
have made us sweeter and better, are

work of Jerome. King Alfred. Caed-
mon. Wyrhffe. Tyndall. the lroart Hi- 1

the right to read It waa one withheld,
and still needs to b protected.
