WAS IN VAIN
Marshfield Man Unable to
Catch Fleeing Debtor In
The Wedderburn Radium of last
Thursday lias the following story
concerning M. H. Tuttle, the Plat B
contractor whoso mysterious de
parture has been mentioned hereto
fore In The Times:
"P. P. Norton of Marshfield, ar
rived In Sunday night, after having
travoled the 64 miles botween here
and Bandon since that morning. Mr.
Korton was In a hurry, as he was In
pursuit of H. M. Tuttle, who was
hiking for the California line with
some property he had purchased
from Norton which was not yet paid
for. Tuttle had purhcased at dif
ferent times from Mr. Norton two
good teams of horses, harnesses and
one wagon, paying a nominal nmount
In cash and agreeing to pay the rest
In monthly Installments. Some of
the payments fell due on July 15th,
but Tuttle had ostensibly departed
for a camping trip to Sunset Bay,
taking his family with him. Investi
gation showed that he had taken his
household goods as well. Tuttle was
n resident of Plat B In North Bend,
and was engaged in erecting a two
story building for a business place
in Plat B, but had run lumber bills
and had paid his help in promises.
Things seemed to have reached a
climax in his financial matters and
it was either pay or get out, and
Tuttle flew tas It were.
"But Mr. Tuttle had departed
Sunday morning, quietly and with
out ostentation, towards the land of
Dennis Kearney. Sheriff Tyler had
taken Tuttle Into custody and de
tained him as long as he thought
himself justified in holding him, and
then let him depart after a compro
mise had been effected whereby Nor
ton's best team, two harnesses and
Stewart's wagon wero left behind as
mementos of an exciting chase. With
these to placate him, Tuttle believed
Korton would bo content and give up
the hunt. But Mr. Norton was a de
termined man, and immediately
Btnrted on nfter him when he lenrncl
of his departure. As he wont farther
and farther south, his determination
tegan to eke out in largo eyes, since
to was nearlng the California lino
and saw his Journey was going to
provo futile. Ho at last reached the
Bummit of a high hill from whence
a view far ahead could bo obtained.
No Tuttle In sight. Mr. Norton
stopped. The day was hot. His
prey had escaped. Ho mopped his
perspiring brow. 'Ho then said a few
things appropriate to tho occasion
and hit the backward trail.
"In speaking of tho mntter, Mr.
Norton Informed tho Radium re
porter that ho was not loser to the
amount of more than a hundred
dollars, since ho had received somo
payments on tho team which Tut
tlo escaped with. Tho laws are
rather peculiar nbout such matters
and ho was not satisfiod ho could
hring nny criminal chargo against
Tuttle successfully, as he had a con
tract for tho property and Mr. Norton
Jins a mortgage on t. piece of real
estate In North Bend, for which Tut
tle has a warranty deed. Anyway ho
oxpressed himself as satisfied with
regaining tho best team, which is
valued at $300. No doubt Mr. Stow
nrt will bo moro thnn satisfied with
tho expedition aH well."

lately. North Bend has increased
Its contribution from $1,325, whloh
was certified to the government by
tho Bank of Oregon to $f.5C0. Some

OILIN ROAD BUILDING
Hoy Petroleum Is Used on Top
of a Macadam Bed.
A FINE SURFACE OBTAINED.
Better Than Acphalt, Does Not Crack
and Lump Rolling Must Not Be
Done In Wet Weather or When
Ground Is Soft.
The old system of "oiling ronds and
streets" Is clearly a flat failure except
for n moderate Improvement of some
of tho worst thoroughfares. The new
system of "making ronds with oil" Is
proving a success whenever proper
methods arc pursoed.
The oil nnd natural soil no longer
go where real results are wanted.
The use of the heavy ten to eleven
gravity petroleum has become quite
general. Its superiority has been well
demonstrated, but there Is a wide dif
ference between different oils of this
gravity nnd with the same amount of
asphaltutn. Some of thnt sold Is well
nigh useless, although It is unques
tionably of the specified gravity nnd
contains the required percentage of as
phalt Tho oil must possess the ad
hesive quality and be able to bind the
rock nnd asphaltum together In other
words, the necessnry petrollne.
Tho best roads nre undoubtedly the
macadamleod highways found in older
sections. The building of such thor
oughfares with the use of oil on the
surface to form a top dressing and
liOAD liEABY 1'Olt OILIJ.Q.
present a surface like nsphnlt pave
ment Is Just In Its Infancy In southern
California, says the Los Angeles
Times. In Pasadena there nre n num
ber of streets of this kind, notably
Madison avenue, prepared at a cost of
12 cents per square foot and with a
depth of seven inches of foundation.
Blocks of thl3 street nre scarcely dis
tinguishable from nsphalt paving.
There nre others similar, but some aro
not equal to this. At the same time
they aro superior to those prepared in
tho old way.
The new method of macadamizing
nnd oiling na laid down In a set of
specifications used for a number of
streets may he outlined substantially
as follows: For the foundation grading
is done by the removal of nil earth,
stone, loobe rock, cement, shale, hard
pan, etc., to n depth of seven Inches
below the Intended finished surface
and to n farther depth of two feet be
low the subgrade whenever mud, sand
or other soil material Is encountered,
tho space to be refilled with good
earth or gravel. The whole Is rolled
with a roller of not less than twelve
tons In weight until the surface Is un
yielding, all depressions made by tho
roller being tilled up and rolled again.
All portions that cannot be reached by
the roller must be tamped solid, and
tho rolling must not be done In wet
weather or when the ground Is soft
and muddy. This subgrade must bo
checked by the street superintendent
before proceeding with work.
On this grade a bottom course of
macadam Is laid consisting of stone
not exceeding three inches In diameter
and not less than one nnd a half Inch
es. This layer will be five Inches in
thickness and is rolled with a twelve
ton steam roller until the stone ceases
to sink under the roller or to creep In
front of It.
A top course of stone between three
fourths of an Inch and an Inch and a
half In diameter will cover this to a
depth of two Inches nnd will he rolled
as before after n first coating of oil
(one-half a gallon to tho square yard)
Is applied evenly so as to saturate the
entire top layer. Then all voids aro
filled lu with rock screenings of the
snnio material as the macadam not ex
ceeding three-quarters of an Inch in
diameter, with a top dressing of the
same material laid to tho depth of half
an Inch, nfter which there Is given a
second coating of oil to the saino
nmount as before and the whole rolled
nnd tamped until no evidence of the oil
remains on the surface except as
shown In tho color of the screenings.
Sharp sand Is to be bvrlnkled wherever
nny oil remains to absorb It. These
specifications provide that oil shall be
of 10 to 11 gravity, with 80 per cent
asphaltum nt 80 penetration and with
not more than 2 per cent water.
The Pacific Electric nnd Los Angeles
Interurbau railways nre using this
method on their rights of way In Pasa
dena, Long Beach nnd one or two
other points. It Is said to bo better
than tho use of nsphnlt. as It gives
with tho pressure of tho rails under
weight of ears and can bo taken up
nnd replaced without dllllculty. It does
not crack and lump, as does tho as
phalt. It Is hard to tell It from the
latter, sometimes Impossible, for tho
nverago person. In Long Bench the
lesult has been very good.
