Official Appeals to Land Board Ask
ing That Action Be Taken to
Stem Rising Prices.
On the theory that the state land
board has control ever materials taken
from the navigable streams of Oregon,
City Commissioner Barbur has ad
dressed a letter to Governor Olcott ask
ing if some co-operation could not be
secured from this board in reducing
the price of sand, gravel and rock to
the city of Portland and other munici
In the letter. Commissioner Barbur
says that the city of Portland stands
"face to face with a combine that is
attempting to control the price of ma
terials used on public improvements."
Mr. Barbur says that several months
ago when the city called for bids on
sand, gravel and crushed rock, three
bids were received and they were iden
tical. The bid, he says, showed an in
crease in the price of sand from 50
cents per cubic yard in 1918 to $1.50
per cubic yard, or an increase of 300
per cent. Gravel, he says, was in
creased from 85 cents per cubic yard
to f 1.50 pc cubic yard.
Cheaper Material Songbt.
Suggestion Is made by Commissioner
Barbur in his letter to Governor Olcott
that should the state land board hold
the power of control over the beds of
the. streams of Oregon, that provision
might be made for the licensing of
firms and individuals who secure their
material from the river beds. Under
this plan he suggests that all firms
and individuals be required to furnish
sand and gravel to the state, counties
and cities at cost of production plus a
certain fixed percentage of profit.
Under such a plan Commissioner
Barbur is certain that the alleged com
bine which he claims Is attempting to
thwart the city of Portland in its mu
nicipal" pavement programme would be
broken and Portland and other cities
throughout the state would secure
Statistics gathered ' from various
sources by Commissioner Barbur pur
port to show that sand can be pumped
from the Willamette river at a cost of j
about 7 cents per cubic yard.
Present Coat Too High.
Mr. Barbur figures that with the
present cost of labor, cost of laying a
cubic foot of sand at the city's bunkens
or paving plant would not exceed 75
cents per cubic yard if the sand could
be taken from the river at the cost
quoted to him.
"A leading contractor," writes Mr.
Barbur, "has Informed me that a few
years ago sand was delivered to the
docks on the waterfront of Portland at
20 cents per cubic yard, so you may
readily seen that the present prices are
preposterous, which if continued simply
means robbing of the people in the
name of patriotic endeavor and public
"If you believe that the state land
board can aid in this matter," the let
ter concludes, "I will be glad to do
whatever is in my power to help you
in securing public improvements at
proper prices to the people of not only
Portland but of the state, as well."

ESCAPED PRISONER IS HELD
Wolfgang Hagcf Charged With Lar-
ceny in California.
Wolfgang Hagen. alien enemy, who
made a sensational escape from the
county Jail September 29, 1918, where
he was being held for the federal
authorities, has been arrested in San
Francisco on a grand larceny charge
under the name of Andrew Johnson,
according to a telegram received by
Sheriff Hurlburt yesterday. He prob
ably will be turned over to the gov
ernment as an undesirable for deporta
tion. This is the second time Hagen has
been arrested since his escape. He
was taken into custody October 22 in
Merced, Cal., for failure to produce a
registration card, but was turned loose
before Sheriff Hurlburt could get word
there that he was wanted here.
He was recognized in San Francisco
Investigation Declared to Have Dis
closed Enmity, and Abusive Let
ters May Shed Some Light.
I n the hope of clearing the mystery
surrounding the death of Alfred Mills
in his cabin near Linnemann sta'.ion a
week ago Saturday, all of his wife's
relatives living on farms adjoining his
home have been subpenaed to appear
before the grand jury today at the
instance of District Attorney Evans.
The calls were issued yesterday for
Lloyd Giese, Orva Giese and Hile Kes
terson. brothers-in-law; Mrs. Hile Kes
terson, sister-in-law, and Anna Giese,
mother-in-law. Mills' widow lives in
Portland, but will not be summoned to
the investigation at this time.
The body of Mills was found by
Kesterson in the doorway of the cabin
where he was living alone, pending
setlement of a divorce action brought
by his wife. Mills had been killed by
a 38-caliber bullet, ranging upward
through his skull. No weapon has been
found, although Deputy Sheriffs Beck
man and Christofferson have made a
minute search of woods and farmland
in the vicinity of the place.
The fact that personal belongings
and money were not touched precluded
the possibility of a robbery motive.
Investigation by Sheriff Hurlburt's
deputies has disclosed some enmity
among relatives of Mills wife, as Mills
is known to have threatened them and
to have written abusive letters to his
