Some Very Pertinent and Timely Suggestions By
a Good Roads Enthusiast Road
Building Machinery Needed.
E.litor Piain dealer: As tho question
of getting beltrr roads is the forethought
of nearly sill il,e jieople of the state of
Oregon, ple:isi-allow me space for a few
pointers in : hit direction.
To make more permanent roads we
must have suiffbiimt machinery and tools
f necessary t e onomically make roads.
To try ami make a road without the
proper roa 1 in ichinery is to waste time
and money, aad the most expensive
method for r. .i i making in other words,
You can make is much road iuone week
v ith up-to d:i:e machinery and too Is a
yti can in a month without the p oper
ni.: linery, and even then you c. .11 not
obi i in the same results becauso you can
u ) make an even and solid roadbed
without yru h.ive both graders and roll
ers for that pf pose It will be money
saved to the c unty in the purchase of
proper machinery and in my opinion in
less than two years this machinery will
lay for itself. We need two steam road
roli. rs, two or three new rock crushers,
: nd at least three of the best road gr.ul--re.
)ti my opinion the top dressing of a
road or stref t iould be crushed rock,
and after men course should be Iboo
I oughlv raaVi with a steam roller. A
road or street so const ructed is the
cheapest an 1 most lasting.
If we are ever to Ik' able to accumu-
i late a sinking fund and decrease our in
debtedness, both in city and county, we
i must commence more permanent work
on these Ml J other lines, or else taxa
tion will n "lu rally increase in place of
: decrease.
This spring Oregon has never shown
more of its natural splendor than at the
' present true. The winter has leen fav-
' orable to crop and farming and a large
yield is as.-ured. We will have thous-
i ands of visitors to the coast this season,
coming to see the Iewig and Clark fair,
and the DMat country. Let us then set
our cleaning machinery into motion ; let
ns our roads, yards, streets, walks
I orchards and our farms look their best
This can all be accomplished with a lit
tle extra . ffort. Let us do a little extra
road work and get at it early and by the
middle of. June let all ruts and bad
places be ti.led and smoothed up. In so
doing it i 1 give a g.iod impression to
, the visitor and Oregon will reap lasting
benefit from this little extra effort on
our part. A St uscribek.

Portland, April 1 Amid tho cheers
of a throng that packed the wharves,
docks and buildings of the water front ;
the blasts to a score of sirens ; the Mut
tering of a veritable sea of hats and
handkerchiefs ; the farewell calls of sol
diers and civilians, that to some will be
the last farewell . some tears and the
throb of patriotic inspiration in the
breasts of all who beheld the spectacle,
the Nineteenth United States Infantry,
in the halo of today's noon, drifted
away from Greenwich dock on board
the Government transport Buford and
westward toward the East, the brine
and the Philippines.
It was the climax, and really the re
gretful and painful climax, to a broad
half day of military glory in metropoli
tan Portland. It marked the passing
from the waters of Oregon of a regiment
that has been a part of Portland for an
era of peace succeeding the turbulent
tunes in the tropic islands, and although
the Fourteenth Infantry, almost Port
land and Vancouver's own regiment, is
soon to take its place, there was a mel
ancholy cast to the whole inspiring dem
onstration, for many of those who left
today will remain forever in the soil of
the new possessions. And some fast
friendship were broken off perforce by
the distance that now must intervene.
Eugene, March 29. -O. W. Hard, the

this morning from San Francisco, where
' he has been (or several days on business

Mr. Hurd says that he expects to
tart his big sawmill at Florence in oper

spring and summer run. He said that
all the other mills on the lower river
would be in operation soon.
With these four big mills running in
full blast, things will be lively on the
lower Siuslaw this summer. Two of the
mills are at Acme and two at Florence.

Severe Test of Wireboand Gun.
The Brown segmental wirebound gun, t
undergoing an endurance teet at the,
Sandy Hook proving grounds, eclipsed
all prev'ous records in withstanding
great pressure on March 4. Seven shots
were tired, six with a 'S-jound charge of ,
smokeless powder, and one with a naif
hound heavier charge, 100-pound pro
jectiles being used. The average pres
sure in the chamber was 42,721 pounds
to the inch. The gnn at one charge
withstood a pressure of 44,420 pounds to
the square inch, and it is expected to
bear even more enormous pressure. A
muzzel velocity of 3,275 feet a second
was attained during the course of these
gun tests.

emanating from St. Petersburg that

A special I'nited States marshal
has been in Eugene, Cottage Grove
and vicinity during the past week or
two serving subpoenas upon different
persons to appear as witnesses before
the Federal grand jury which recon
venes at Portland today, April 3rd.
Among those subpoenaed are At
torney L E. Bean and Banker Darwin
Bristow of Eugene, and Banker Her
bert Eakin, of Cottage Grove.
It is not known what kind of testi
mony is expected of these gentlemen,
but it is said to be in the timber
fraud cases and rumor has it that
some surprises will be sprung by the
grand jury. It is thought a number
of local citizens may be indicted for
implication in the land frauds.
A supreme effort is being put forth
by the government detectives and
prosecutors to in somewise implicate
the Booth-Kelly Lumber Co., in the
land frauds and they are therefore in
vestigating most minutely the man
i ner in which every acre of their tim
I ber holdings were secured. It will be
: gratifying when this investigation is
over which is completely demoralizing
j timber and lumber operations in
Western Oregon and making invest
ments in new milling and lumbering
plants as well as timber, by Eastern
capital, impossible. Western Oregon
development is practically at a stand
still and will continue to be as long
as these "investigations" are in progress.

walls for a crime which he never com

secure the pardon of Albert A. Johnson
who is now serving a sixteen-year sen
tence for rape, having been convicted of
the crime and received his sentence in
liberty. The statue of limitation for
perjury expires in three years, and as it
has been six years since the crime was
committed, no action at law can be
maintained against the girl who,
although a minor at the time, gave false
evidence upon the witness stand which

never attempted to commit such crime
upon her person.
Johnstefe, who is now bent with age
and physical infirmity, has been endur

despite the fact that he is over sixty
years of age and is compelled to live in
shame and disgrace the balance of his
natural life, he has no resources at law,

against him. He can but be thankful

Read the Plaindealer for all the News
According to a statement made in the
application for the pardon, it appears
that the mother of the girl is charged
with the responsibility of the charge be
ing brought against Johnston and that
it was she who forced the girl to appear
upon the stand and testify against him,
thus securing his conviction. It is al
leges that the action was prompted by
the ill-will which the mother is said to
have borne against Johnston. The girl
was asked to sign an affidavit retting
forth that her mother was responsible
for her action in the case, but the girl
would not sign the affidavit until
that part which implicated her mother
was erated from the document, thus
showing a disposition to avoid compli
eating her mother in the case in any
manner or form.
