. "If we can get the officers of the
Warren Construction Company on
the witness stand, we believe we can
prove that a paving combine exists
which has been operating in Oregon
and Washington, and through these
officers an .expose of the inner work
ings 'of the combination will be
made," announces S. B. Huston, who
with Bagley & Hare Is representing
property owners of Forest Grove who
are remonstrating against the award
ing or a street contract in that city.
The first gun against the alleged
paving trust was fired Thursday in
Hillsboro before Circuit Judge J. U.
Campbell, when in an additional par
agraph attached to the complaint the
charge was boldly made of the con
spiracy. Richard W. Montague,
counsel for the Warren Construction
Company, battled against the added
paragraph on behalf of the city of
ficials of Forest Grove, but Judge
Campbell allowed the amendment to
Hoyt, McDevitt and Lynch, In the
Warren Construction Company's of
fice, are wanted by the plaintiffs,
but service nas not been obtained on
them. Sheriff Hancock tried to
serve a subpoena on Hoyt last Thurs
day, but was tricked. The story
goes that the sheriff waited for Hoyt
until someone in the office asked if J
anyone else would do, stating that ne
was Hoyt 8 brother. The sheriff
handed the paper to the alleged
brother and asked him to give it to
Hoyt. Later in the day the sheriff
eturned and, seeing Hoyt. asked
him if he had received the paper
that had been left with his brother.
Hoyt replied that he had not, and
then, while the sheriff walked over
to the desk of tne supposed brother,
Hoyt disappeared and has been Invis
ible to the sheriff's men ever since.
It is said that Hoyt was furious when
someone in the office gave him the
subpoena, but that he called up
Richard Montague and the lawyer
advised him not to worry as Hoyt
had not been personally served with
the paper by the sheriff.
'What the officers are trying to
do," says Huston, "Is to keep under
cover until after the date of the trial
and then the paving people will try
to stir up public sentiment in Forest
Grove for the. immediate paving of
Second avenue and try to make a
showing bo the court will not keep
postponing the case. Without the
officers of the company we cannot
make as good a showing as we other
wise would, and the officers realize
'Providing we can get the officers
and the books of the Warren Con
struction Company into court we ex
pect to uncover a paving combination
which has controlled the state for
several years and which has dictated
the price taxpayers must pay for the
hard-surface streets. We know what
we want to ask if we can land those
officers in the witness box."

James H. Henley, former manager
of the Granite Mountain and Drum
Lumond mines in Montana, has been
secured to manage the Medford Min
ing & Milling Company's mine near
Jacksonville, the Norling mine. The
contract with Mr. Henley was, made
Friday afternoon. He is one of the
most prominent and successful min
ing men in the country, having had
charge, of a number of very large
producers in various mining camps.
The Granite Mountain mine, which
he managed for several years, was
the largest silver mine In the world,
producing over $12,000,000 in divi
dends. It is located at Granite,
The securing of the services of a
mining man with the experience and
ability of Mr. Henley means much
for the successful operation of a
property which is considered one of
the most valuable prospects In this
vicinity. Several cars of high grade
ore are at present blocked out there,
also a considerable quantity of pay
ore. The successful operation and
development of so favorable a prop
erty as this is, under Mr. Henley's
management, will do more to attract
mining attention to this section tnan
scarcely anything else that could be
