THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX, PORTLAND, SEPTEMBER 21, 1919.
PRDGHAMME OF ROAD
WORK IS MAPPED OUT
Klamath, Lake, Morrow and
Gilliam Counties Listed.
ROAD BOND SALE WAITS
the commission to put it up as a co-
operative project so that a sum to
match Multnomah's money will be
available from the government and this
latter sum can be used to extend the
road into Clackamas county to approxi
mately the point where the forestry
department is constructing the loop. In
other words, Multnomah county money
will be used to obtain government
money to build a road in Clackamas
county.
George W. Joseph sent the commis
sion a deed to the "Wemme road, which
is a section of the proposed loop. The
document was referred to the attorney
general's office.
Mr. Booth called attention to reports
received by him and his personal ob
servation that there are automobiles
Syndicate Bid of $1,065,600
$2,000,000 Block Is Fut Over
Until Tomorrow.
As soon as possible bids will be called
for by the state highway commission
for important road work in Klamath,
Lake, Morrow and Gilliam counties, a
section of the Roseburg-Coos Bay road
and a link in the Mount Hood loop.
This was part of the programme
mapped out at the special meeting- held
yesterday when bids for two road jobs
were opened and a block of $2,000,000
bonds was offered for sale.
Bids on bonds were held over until
Monday morning, and the bids for- the
road work were referred to State High
way Kngineer Nunn. A syndicate of
fered the best bid for the bonds, the of
fer being $1,965,600, or $34,400 below
par. The syndicate is composed of the
Guarantee Trust company, New York;
Equitable Thust company. New York;
Northern Trust company, Chicago: Kls
tell Kinnicutt company. New York, and
Carstens & Earle, Seattle. This offer
is slightly lower than the price bid for
a big block of bonds a few weeks ago.
The bond market is said to be glutted
and the threatened steel strike is con
sidered as affecting the bids. The
commission may decide to sell $1,000,000
of the $2,000,000 Monday morning.
Bids Referred to Engineers.
On the Bend-Jefferson county line
section of The Dalles-California high
way, E. F. Logan of Bend was low bid
der, his figure being $89,736 for grad
ing the 23.9 miles. On the 9.11 miles of
gravel for the Nyssa-Cairo section of
the John Day highway. Porter & Con
nelly were low bidders at $69,277.25.'
These bids were referred to the en
gineer. It is the intention of the commission
to spend $1,520,000 in Klamath county.
Of this sum $380,000 comes from the
county; the state will put up as much
more, making $760,000, and the govern
ment is to be asked to match this state
and county money, making a total of
$1,520,000. The commission will build
a standard state road, which is 16-feet
roadway, but there will be a 12-foot
travel way where the traffic does not
justify standard width. Klamath county
court submitted a proposition to build
three miles of the Klamath Falls-Al-gona
section for cost plus 10 per cent,
and the commission agreed to accept
the offer.
More Bids to Be Called.
Bids will be called for the rest of
the Klamath Falls-Algoma road, the
Klamath Falls-Dairy road and the
Klamath Falls-Malin road, this latter
connecting with the California state
lines. These roads are to be standard
width, but beyond Dairy will be a 12
foot width.
For Lake county the commission or
dered for advertising the Lakeview
Crooked creek section, and on the Roseburg-Coos
Bay road, the Remote-Camas
Valley section was ordered prepared
for advertising. This is 14 miles of
hard rock in the heart of the canyon
through the coast range. The commis
sion agreed on a 6 per cent grade on a
part of the low pass road, in Lane
county, which will save a mile and a
half. This road will be 12 feet of
macadam.
Gilliam Offer $75,000.
Offering $75,000 on behalf of Gilliam
county which is half the approximate
cost of grading and graveling the
seven-mile section between Thirty
Mile bridge and Mayville, James S.
Stewart had the satisfaction of seeing
the commission agree to carry out the
promise made at the meeting early in
September. At that time Mr. Stewart
offered $50,000 from the county, but
Commissioner W. L. Thompson declared
the cum was insufficient, but promised
that if the county would pay half the
cost the commission would give Gilliam
a completed road in that section. Mr.
Stewart returned to Gilliam and raised
the ante, of which $5000 came from
popular subscriptions.
Representing Morrow county, S. E.
Notson and Vawter Crawford, wanted
to borrow from the commission $30,000,
the county being short that sum to pay
its share for work on the Oregon and
Washington highway, from the Gilliam
county line to Heppner. No decision
was reached by the commission, as the
delegation said the county cannot raise
the money to repay by levy and no
special bond election can be held until
next year. The commission, however,
will advertise the road in sections,
from the Gilliam county line to lone;
from lone to Lexington and from Lex
ington to Heppner. If funds are avail
able all three sections will be let, but
shortage of funds may necessitate
leaving over one of the three sections
for the future.
Further Credit Not Extended.
Refusal was made by the commis
sion to extend further credit to the
firm having the concrete road contract
14 miles, between Coquille and Marsh
field, and the state may take over the
work. The contractors have completed
four miles of pavement and have met
a number of handicaps, such as being
unable to return $7200 worth of cement
sacks because of the stevedore strike,
A method of aiding the Mount Hood
loop was considered and favored by
Chairman Benson and Commissioner
Booth, Commissioner Thompson being
absent at the Pendleton Round-up. The
proposition is this: Multnomah county
wants to grade and pave from Gresham
to the Clackamas county line on. the
Mount Hood road. The Multnomah
county commissioners are willing to
turn this project over to the state high
way commissioners and this will enable

striking manner in the wool exhibit,
installed in the main hall of the
library on the second floor under the
direction of the technical department.

commenced last week and the first con
tributions were samples of raw wool
from representatives of wool-growing
interests of the state.
Following this were displays from
the woolen mills, cloths, shawls, Indian
blankets and similar products, which
required so much space that the ex
hibit of raw wool was moved from the
north portion of the hall to a place at
the south. Knit goods and big fluffy
rolls of carded wool and wool bats
were also added to the exhibition.
Following the wool exhibit, the tech

F. Bljthe of Hood River Writes" of
Inconveniences Caused by
Repairs to Train.
HOOD RIVER. Or., Sept. 20. (Spe
cial.) The trip of the Oregon delega
tion to the Columbus (Ohio) national
encampment of the Grand Army was
far from pleasant as a result of the
poor railway service, according to S.
F. Blythe of this city and former com
mander of the Oregon department, who
traveled east with the Oregon head
quarters contingent. Mr. Blythe writes
under date line of September 11:
"After traveling' four days and four
nights the Oregon Grand Army special
arrived in Columbus Monday night, Sep
tember 8, 12 hours late. It was a most
disagreeable trip "The Plains Across."
The coaches were old and frequently
we lay on the tracks while the plumber
or other machinist would attempt to
make repairs.
"At St. Paul one car had to be va
cated and another was put on in its
place. While repairs were being made
our train would stay on the sidings,
hemmed in by long freights. At Chica
go we laid over in this fashion for five
hours without a chance to buy even
a daily paper. '
"Every berth was filled ifi the 13
cars and we were packed in like sar
dines. The dust and dirt were fearful.
Part of the time we were without
water in our car not even drinking
water. The officials on the train did
the best they could to make us com
fortable and every one seemed to take
the discomforts with good nature."

Without any obligation. let us demonstrate a Regina, the
merits of which will convince you that you cannot be
without one.
We can express our enthusiasm even in cold type,
because we know of the high-grade workmanship, and
care of the mechanism lavished in the manufacture of
the Regina. But print has never yet been able to do the
work. To appreciate a Regina. you must see it working;

time saved in house cleaning, the improved sanitary
conditions of your room and numerable other little but
valuable points.

with the gear-driven brush, it sweeps up all litter and
threads.
A demonstration will prove conclusively and quickly the
wonderful cleaning power it has without injuring the
'best rugs, upholstery, fabrics, etc
Terms of payment are arranged so as to fit the conven
ience of all sized pocketbooks.
