Portland Enthusiasts Visit The
Dalles Where Interesting
Meetina Is Held --Farmer
Tells of Needs.
To Instruct, their representative at
the convention ot the tate-wld . high
way committee in Portland. September
12-13, several Oregon c6untles have
calle4 good roads meeting for next
. One ot these meetings was held yes
terday at The Dalles, county seat of
Wasco, county. It was a joint session
Of the grange; commercial club and
farmers' union. D. J. Cooper, appoint
ed by Governor West to represent Wasf
:o county on the general committee, pre
sided over the session which was at
tended by a large proportion of the Jn-
may have a definite expression of what
Wasco county wants Incorporated in the
prospective highway laws another meet
lng was called for next Friday evening
when a. resolution covering the issues
of greatest interest In Wasco count7
will be presented for adoption and
transmission to the convention In Port
land. To draft the resolution a com
mittee consisting of D. J. Cooper, J. U
Kelly, M. M. Waterman, G. A. Harth,
George Reed and M. Remington was ap
The session at The Dalles in reality
was two meetings. The first meeting
was held in one of the lodge halls and
here Marshall N. Dana of The Journal
addressed the men, saying that this Is
a time to apply common sense under
standing of road building apd cash to
the highway need. Mr. Cooper, Mr. Wa
terman and others expressed approval
of a proposed county bonding act, a
law to permit working convicts on
roads and a state aid provision. Re
commendations to this effect will be In
cluded In the resolution and Mr. Coop
er will thus be instructed.
Much Building Materia,
One of the surprising features of the
first session was a report by George
Reed, a prominent farmer, that in Was
co county is rock enough to build the
best of highway systems throughout the
county and maintain this system forev
er. Yet, so far as could be learned, this
rock has never been utilised. The long
est haul of road material would not be
more than 6 miles, yet the roads are
principally the trails of long ago, worn
wider and with deeper ruts. Wheat
growers said the roads had gotten so
bad In many places that they were not
Bure of getting their crop safely from
their farms to the shipping station.
Much of the Wasco county soli is large
ly intermingled with sand which blows
badly. It was suggested that use of
the rock, crushed and properly put down
would provide a road that Wasco winds
will not be able to blow away.
Bates Shows Tlews.
The meeting was then continued in
one" of the- moving picture theatres. Here
Phil S. Bates, special representative of
the highway department at Washing
ton, showed S00 views of good and bad
roads in Oregon and other parts of the
United States. Stopping long enough to
say that most roads are bad either be
cause not built right, or neglected, or,
once built, expected to last rorever with
out further attention. Mr. -Bates rap
idly changed the views to the. most
beautiful of Oregon scenery. Views of
Switzerland and Norway and other por
tions of the much advertised tourist
countries were Interpolated, that it
might " e shown how much more beauti
ful 'and tourist attractive is the Ore
gon scenery, If only It were properly
advertised and highways built so that
people could be gotten into the country
It was also emphasised that one of
Oregon's rrreatest needs. In order to
keep faith with the settlers that have
been attracted by Oregon advertising. Is
to build highways that will permit the
new comers to get to their farms and
get their products to the railroad sta
tions and markets.

It is not necessary to walk on your

almost a wonder by the

In a basin of hot water.
Soak the feet in this for
full fifteen minutes, gently
massaging the sore parts.
(Less time will not artvn

each night until cure is

and the feet feel so good one could
shout for joy. Corns and callouses can
be peeled right off. Sweaty, smelly feet
and swollen tender feet need but a few
treatments. Bunions have- the inflam
mation all' drawn out and are soon re
duced to. normal size: Caloclde Is the
most remarkable foot remedy known to
science and should not be conused with
patent ptfwders and tablets . that so
many have tried in-vain. A twenty-five

Vancouver, Wash., Sept. 2. President
Howard Elliott of the Northern Pacific
was In Vancouver today and by appoint
ment was met here by General Super
intendent J. B. Richards. Superinten
dent W. C. Albee and Roadmaster W. T.
Payne of Tacoma. In company with J.
Q. Edwards, local freight agent, they
made a thorough inspection of the com
pany docks and terminals. They then
left on a trip of inspection of the Tacolt
branch of the Northern Pacific and to
night returned to Tacoma.
President Elliott is making a tour of
the western states Inspecting the vari
ous lines. They decided that no Imme
diate improvements would be made In
Vancouver except that the tracks would
be extended near the freight house at
Second and Columbia streets to relieve
congested freight conditions. The water
front where the old buildings were torn
down last week will be cleaned of rub
bish, which the section crew will com
mence Tuesday morning.
On inspecting the dock, they found
that fully 75 per cent of the freight
unloaded . was. from , steamers indepen
dent of the railroad company. They de
cided that the facilities for the company
were adequate at the present time and
no improvements or extensions will be
No Information was given out relative
to building docks on the company water
front west of the city for handling
grain. However, It is believed by those
who are supposed to know whereof they
speak, that the property was bought be
cause the company knew that values
would rise and bought while it was
cheap to utilize it at some future time.
The strike of the linemen employed
by the Mount Hood Railway & Power
company which has been In progress for
some time Is nearer A settlement today
than It has been since the beginning.
At a conference held yesterday morning
between Chief Engineer . B. Smith of
the company and a committee represent
ing the strikers, Mr. Smith offered to
do away with the personal contract so
distasteful to the linemen and In Its
place said he would post the rules of
the company which practically means
the same thing except that the men are
not required to put their signatures to
these before being employed.
The only recognition he would vouch
safe the union was that he promised to
send a letter to the effect that he. pro
posed to do this.
Whether this new offer will be ac
cepted or not Ilea with the union and,
as Monday is Labor Day, it- is doubt
ful whether meeting will be held on
that evening or not.' If it is, Impossi
ble to Void It then the members will be
gotten together at the earliest moment
and the acceptance of the proposal put
to a vote.,
