Josephine County Project to
Cost $1,500,000.
Beaver Portland Cement Company
to Besin Development of
Valuable Deposits.
(5 RANTS PASS, Or., Oct. 9. (Spe
cial.) That tr.e Beaver Portland
Cement company of Portland is
planning on extensive development
work in Josephine county was indi
cated today when the company in
serted a call for bids in a local
paper for the construction of three
miles pf standard-gauge railroad
and 6000 feet of tramway to the
Cheney creek lime quarries to con
nect with the California & Oregon
Coast railway. It is also probable
that a plant will be erected near
Grants Pass upon the completion of
the railroad, the whole enterprise to
cost approximately Jl, 500,000. The
new railroad will be known as the
Marble Mountain railroad.
There will be three miles of stan
dard gauge railroad, the survey hav
ing been compleud and the right of
way purchased. The tram will be
double tracked for a distance of 4400
feet, with 1500 feet of single track
on the summit. The line rises 1200
feet. The main road is laid on
1.5 per cent grade. The railroad will
be completed by January 1. accord
ing to representatives of the com
Capacity to Be Doubled.
The power line is to be built along
the right of way. A huge 400-horse-power
plant is being erected on the
top mountain with air compressors
machine shops and a steam shovel
for the excavation of the lime.
The proposed plant to be erected
near Grants Pass for the manutac
ture of cement will be double the
capacity of that now in use in Gold
Hill. The Gold -Hill plant is now
turning out 1100 barrels a day, with
a force of 85 men. At first the
lime from the Cheney creek quarry
will be taken to Gold Hill so that
the trade of the Beaver company
may be supplied. The new plant at
Grants Pass, with all new machin
. ery of the latest type, will be in
stalled as soon as possible and when
It is completed the lime will be
orought here, doing away with the
necessity of shutting down. When
the plant here is in operation it is
understood thafthe Gold Hill plant
will be moved to Grants Pass as an
additional unit. Arrangements have
ulready been made for the factory
site, it is understood, but its exact
location is a matter of conjecture.
It is known, however, that it will
be on the railroad close to the city.
Big Supply to Be Tapped.
The railroad will open up a prac
tically unlimited supply of 98 per
cent pure calcium carbonate. , The
lime is known to extend over 28
acres, with an estimate of 30,000,000
tons in prospect. The deposit is ex
posed vertically to a depth of 750
feet, the whole being 98 per cent
This is the largest known lime
deposit on the Pacific coast of this
purity and rivals the Vermont lime
in respect to its equality. In the
mountain surrounding the lime
are shale deposits nearly ten times
as great as the lime. This insures
plenty of material for the manu
facture of the cement. Other prod
ucts of the plant will be fertilizer
and building stone.
The new road, which has a grade
of 1.5 per cent, opens a billion feet
of merchantable timber, hitherto
practically untouched. There is
also a large clay deposit on the
land owned by the Beaver company,
which is suitable for the manufac
ture of vitrified pipe. This may be
come an industry here, it is said,
as the clay is of high quality. The
road also opens' up the area trav
ersent to the local trade and
through the introduction of electric
power will make possible the use
of electricity by farmers along the
right of way.
the federal court yesterday when
Judge Wolverton held that they
cannot be bound by terms of leases
between owners of the warehouse
and owners of the property unless
they were fully apprised of the na
ture of the leases.
The decision sustained a demurrer
by O. H. Reeder, Myrick. Or., farmer,
who. lost a considerable supply of
grain in a fire which recently de
stroyed a warehouse at that place.
Reeder sued the Northern Pacific
Railway company, owner of the
property, because the railroad com
pany allowed the fire to spread to
the warehouse. Terms in the lease
held by the operators of the ware
house, protecting the company
against damage, were held invalid
by the court.

that time, it went from the bottom
of the bill to the top within Beven

It is said that there is no other

such a record. These stars are ap

line attractions on the Orpheum
vaudeville programme, which closes
its Portland engagement at the
Heilig theater this evening.
'There are two steps to success
in acting," says Cressy, who has
shared in this astounding vaude
ville record. "The first is to learn
what to do and how to do it. The
rext, and much more important, is
to learn what not to do. Folk
laugh at the burlesque, the ridic
ulous, the overdrawn and over
accentuated, but the things they
remember, the things they ask for
and come back to see year after
year, are the true things of real
folk." . '

In explanation of its reasons for
dismissing H. J. Overturf of .Bend
as appraiser for Deschutes -county
the world war veterans' state aid
commission at a meeting in Port
land yesterday gave out a statement
specifically charging that Overturf
had not only been guilty of nu
merous other derelictions, but in
one instance had actually padded an
appraisal of property owned by him
in order to sell it to an ex-service
The name of the ex-service man
was not mentioned.
"Overturf filled out the soldier's
application blank," said the state
ment, which was signed by four
members, Governor Olcott not being
present, "and in his own handwrit
ing represented 'and caused the
service man to swear tnat ne was
nurchasing the property from Over
turf for $4100 when in truth he was
l.uvinsr it for $3200 from Overturf,
without putting up a dollar of
money, having, pursuant to Over-
turf's suggestion, according to the
sworn testmiony of the service man,
represented the value and purchase
price at $4100 in order to obtain
the maximum loan of $3000 from the
Statement la Issued.
Following is the commission s
statement in full:
At the reeular meeting of the
world war veterans' state aid com
mission, attended by all five com
missinnore on October 2. the com
mission summarily removed H. J.
Overturf of Bend as appraiser for
rho nmmi!.;inn in Deschutes county
Mr. Overturf had been one of the
commission's agents since the be
ginning of the state's operations in
administering the soldiers' home
and farm loan law, which appoint
ment was unanimously made by the
In removing Mr. Overturf from
this position of trust the commission
was moved by a firm and unani
mous conviction that he had not
represented either the best inter
ests of the state of Oregon or of the
ex-service men of Deschutes county,
but had interested himself in the
disposal of his own property in
recommending the lending of money
voted by the people for the benefit
of ex-service men.
Mr. Overturf subsequent to the
commission's action has issued a
public statement charging that the
action was the result of political
animosities between himself and
the chairman of the board. Governor
In addition" to being an unwar
ranted and wholly unfounded at
tack upon the governor this is also
a reflection upon the integrity of
every member of the commission.
The motion for Mr. Overturfs
prompt dismissal from his position
of trust in connection with the han
dling of soldier aid moneys was not
made nor was it seconded by the
chairman of the board. However.
aU members of the commission were
of one mind ana, alter nearing me
mass of facts and circumstances
whic it had gathered affecting Mr.
Overturfs operations as an ap-
nraiser. it was the prompt flna
unanimous decision that he be dis
Grand Jury Probe Considered
Tn reaohinsr this decision the com
mission also decided that it was its
duty to refer the facts and circum
stances in connection with land
appraisals in Deschutes county to
the attorney-general of the state
with the end in view of having the
grand jury for Deschutes county
make a thorough investigation
The commission made no charges
of crime against Mr. Overturf
any other person. But it did con
clude that the facts ithad consid
ered in reaching its decisions ought
to be made the subject or lurtner
inauirv bv the Drooer autnonties
for the purpose of determining
whether any further action beyond
the removal of the appraiser was
necessary further to safeguard the
proper interests of the . ex-service
men and of the state.
The commission's action in regard
to Mr. Overturf was final and con
clusive and no further investigation
was needed in order for the commis
sion to determine that he had not
performed his duties with a proper
regard for the interests of the state
or ex-service men.
'In concluding that Mr. Overturf
had, padded the values of property
for 'the purpose of gaining state
loans the Commission was unable to
minimize that dereliction in its o.wn
mind on the grounds of his possible
sympathy for the ex-service men,
since one of the'most flagrant cases
was one in which Mr. Overturf was
disposing of his own property and
therefore stood to profit personally
from the transaction at the manifest
expense of both the eX-service men
of Oregon and of the taxpayers of
the state.

Miss Jeoffrie and Miss Sharkey
Are Headliners at Excellent
Concert Last Night.
Miss Ffeurette Jeoffrie, coloratura
soprano, and Miss Kathtyn Sharkey,
violinist, were the stars inan inter-estine-
radio programme broadcast
from The Oregonian tower last night
between 7:30 and 8:30 o'clock, which
was heard by radio stations many
miles from Portland, according to
telephone messages received during
and after the concert.
Miss Jeoffrie is a youthful singer
appearing at the Pantages theater
this week. She has a voice of
astoundingly high pitch and last
night demonstrated her wide range
with a series of three solos. Every
note of each sons: was heard dis
tinctly by the radio listeners and the
brilliant young soloist was gener
ously applauded. She was assisted
at the piano by her mother, Mrs.
Itasca Jeoffrie, and her lhree selec
tions were Thrane's iiicho ong,T
which acquired its fame as one of
Jenny Lind's favorites: Meyerbeer's
"Shadow Song" from "Dinorah, and
"Coming Through the Rye." The
last number was an arrangement by
Miss, Jeoffrie herself.
Miss Kathryn. Sharkey, accompa
nled at the piano by Ida May Cook,
played in brilliant fashion three vio
lin solos which went out in splendid
fashion. Miss Sharkey never before
had played in The Oregonian tower
and her introduction to the radio
audience proved that she is one of
Portland's most able violinists. She
is a pupil of. Harold Bayley, and her
selections were "Swedish Melody'
(Wilhelmj), "Spanish Dance" (Gran-
ados-Kreisler), and Weber's "Waltz
No. 2."
G. H. Jessup and Earl Stimson,
banjoists, played three novelty num
bers during the programme: the
first banjo duets that The Oregonian
ever had broadcast. Both players
used instruments made by G. H.
Another part of the programme
was a speech read by F. D. Weber,
electrical engineer with the Oregon
Insurance rating bureau, on fire
prevention. This speech was writ

National Underwriters' laboratories.

Every Move of Committee Is
Reported, Says Statement:
- t
Exhibition Is to Be on National
Basis Instead of World-Wide.
Great Benefits Foreseen.
A statement intended to clarify
in the public mind the present staus
of the 1927 exposition project and
to make known the plans of those
who are working for it was issued
yesterday by Mayor George 1.
Baker in his capacity as director of
the publicity campaign now under
way throughout the state.
The mayor declares that final
verdict on the actual question of
holding the exposition is up to the
voters and will be decided at the
coming November election; that the
committee in charge of the prelimi
narles is doing its utmost at all
times to acquaint the public with
everything that it is doing; that the
scope of the project has been defi
nitely changed in the minds of the
promoters and those of all informed
people from that of a world's fair
to that of a national fair, and that
the people of the state at large
need the proposed exposition even
in greater degree than do those of
Portland, in order to bring in more
people to fill up Oregon's empty
acre and eventually to lower the
tax burden by distributing it among
a larger population which is. ex
pected to materialize from the hold
ing of the exposition.
Voters to Decide Date.
The statement says:
"It is proper at this time that
a plain statement be made defining
the attitude of the exposition execu
tive committee toward the proposed
1927 enterprise. Questions have
arisen recently that have been con
fusing to the people generally, but
the committee has succeeded in re
moving the serious obstacles and
there is nothing, apparently, in the
way now to prevent the matter be
ing submitted to the electorate in
"Whether or not the exposition
shall be held in 1927 is a matter
that is squarely up to the voters of
Oregon. The people are pretty thor
oughly acquainted with all facts
pertaining to the proposed exposi
tion and it is an insult to their in
telligence to assume that they can
not decide a question that means
so much to the future welfare of
"This was the position of the com
mittee when it decided to go ahead
and place the measures that will
decide the fate of the exposition,
on the November ballot. Once the
people of Portland expressed them
selves in favor of the exposition by
a vote of four to one. If they have
changed their minds since then or
if they object to the way it is be
ing financed, they have a powerful
and direct way of expressing them
selves on November 7. It is their
enterprise; they will have to fur
nish the funds, the energy, the in
telligence and the enthusiasm that
will be necessary to make it a
success. ,
Every Move Is Reported.
"This committee understands that
it is representing the people in this
matter. It has taken pains to ac
quaint the public with every move
it 'has made. Its great purpose and
.only thought has been to .exercise
its best judgment in the interest of
the state at large. I have no hesi
tancy in thus declaring the feelings
of the committee. Every member is
taking this matter most seriously,
for all realize the responsibility
that has been placed on them. They
have expressed themselves freely
and weighed all questions that have
arisen. The action they have taken
is regarded by them as a duty they
owe to the public. As for myself, as
director of the campaign, I simply
have been carrying out the wishes
of the committee and executing its
orders to the best of my ability.
It has been apparent for some
time that the scope of the proposed
exposition has been settled in the
minds of the people. All thought
of a stupendous world's fair has
been abandoned, and the
Owners who have driven the good Maxwell
many thousands of miles have found that
it is not only most comfortable and eco
nomical, but so well built that it requires
practically no expert mechanical attention.

Hlie Good
seems to be general that uregon
should produce an exposition that
would attract visitors from all over
the United States. This nation is
enjoying unbounded prosperity, and
millions of dollars are spent by
tourists every summer. The rush
of travel by train and automobile
has been mostly westward, and
many of these people are seeking
new locations, new homes. Oregon
has not been getting its share of
this traffic notwithstanding the su
perior attractions we have to offer.
If such an exposition as is proposed
will "draw national attention to our
resources, its greatest purpose will
have been accomplished.
Development to Be Soncht.
'The people of Portland and of
the state must realize at this time
that some sections of Oregon are
facing an economic crisis and un
less some relief is afforded, disaster
threatens. Farmers are in a des
perate plight. Their taxes and ex
penses are mounting out of all pro
portion to their incomes. I am not
one to censure them for their past
attitude toward the exposition. I
have been among them and under
stand their predicament. When this
exposition is held the most strenu
ous campaign must be made to in
duce visitors to go into these rich
and promising districts that need
population to speed development and
reduce taxes.
"Portland does not need the expo
sition so much as the country. Di
rectly we will reap much but our
great concern must be for the out
side sections. This city is pros
perous and growing. Some parts of
the state are at a standstill and
some moving backward. Portland
cannot continue to prosper under
opinion puch conditions. Unless the entire
state advances, every Industry In
Portland must soon suffer. Port
land cannot proceed succeisfully
"There are eight person to the
square mile in Oregon. In Mult
nomah county there are 673 to the
square mile. Outmide of Multnomah
county there are but - five to the
square mile in Oregon. This does
not balance; it is out of proportion.
It Is a condition that threatens Tort
land and should be seriously con
sidered by millionaire and day
laborer alike.
"What can be done to correct such
a wrong situation? I believe the
exposition will help Immensely."
