at thla time refuse to discuss
tne subject In any of Its phaws. This
situation ha been brouifht about
through the death of H. A. Fatrrhll.l,

If he d.xMes to remain. lie will with

It Is arcuej that he would be an
easier man to replace than Mr. Falr

ssaln.'t his chief, the work would fall
upon JrM. S. JonfS and he has been
with the Commission only a compara
tively short time. That tha resigna
tion ot Mr. Lawrence, who will be tha
next chairman of the board, should ha
remain, would be a severe handicap
to ti.e Commission work In thla state

by the death of sir. Falrchlld alone. Is

on the othe- hand. It Is claimed that
If Mr. Lawrence goes out at thla time
It will permit the oriranlsatlon of a
new body of men to take up the work
where It baa been left oft, or rather at
the point to which It waa carried by
Mr. FatThlld and tha other members
of tha Commission. Thla argument
-lll no doubt be advanced by Mr.
Lawrence In event he declines to stay
on the Commission, but seeks other
t.n ileal honors than those he now en
Jt. Falthfal Appelate Seaakt.
That Mr. Lawrence la In an embar-rassin-r
aa woll aa delicate position la
well known and therefor he Is almost
prohibited from lalklna about tha
mattt-r. But In all probability he will
oriault with various -of Ms political

An added Interest has been siren to
tha situation by the statement Just Is-sue-1

tj executive would even think of re
mo y I r. c him to five place to some fol
lower. i-houl.l Mr. Lawrence reslcn. there
la no question but that Oovernor Hay
won) i oiler the place to Senator W. H.
Taullamus. of llerr County. Senator
f'auliamua w.is one of the orlclnal
men who fouirht for a Itallroad Com
mission and he rv always taken a
keen Interest In tlie work, being- per
haps as fjmllUr with the duties of that
body as any other'person In the state
not connected with the department.
But as yet no man has even been
agreed upon for Mr. Falrchllda place,
aa Senator I'liilhamua Is not an attor
ney and therefore Is hardly eligible to
ucreel the late chairman.
The xarancy will be hard to nil. for
the men who measure up to Mr. Falr
MU1 s stan.Urd are most of them
Irawina from 10 u.)0 a year up and the
state ravs but half mat sum.
If Mr. Lawrence decidee to be a can

People : Are Disappointed.
ORESHAM. Or., Oct. 14. (Special.)
By an order from tha County Court
all road work In Multnomah County
has been discontinued, except' the com
pletion of a few unfinished plecea of
new road and necessary repairs.
The order Is a sore disappointment
to the people, who had hoped to see
many miles of new road completed this
year, but the action of. tha .court is
said to have been caused by' the ex
cessive cost of repairing the old roads,
which were badly damaged by the con
struction of the second Bull Run pipe
line and the Mount .Hood Railway.
Both of these bl enterprises were
carried on last Winter, and practically
every road was ruined. It is estimated
by the road superintendents that the
damage was fully 1100,000. More than
that much baa been spent In Eastern
Multnomah during the present year,
and the existing roads are in excellent
-condition again, yet very little new
work has been done.
In one part of the county, near Pleaa
ant Home, the people are -subscribing
work In order to get a road to the
Mount Hood depot. The railway com
pany has offered to furbish gravel for
tha actual cost of hauling, and the
work will be done even though the
County Court haa given orders to stop.
On the Wlhlon road the people have
subscribed about 1200 to have that
thoroughfare graveled a half mile. It
will cost 1500. but the County Court
has not accepted the subscription yet,
nor haa It allowed the work to' pro
ceed. Delegations of prominent taxpayers
have been calling on the County Com
missioners .during the past week, but
have receives scant encouragement.
