Reliability of Figures of Com

Figures furnished by R. A. Booth,
state highway commissioner, purport
ing to show that patented pavenienf,
rail he laid in Oregon, even should a
royalty be paid, cheaper than can
unpatented pavements, made the
main basis on which opponents of
thi Lachmund antl-rpyalty bill suc
ceeded in having the bill indeflnite
ly postponed in the senate yester
day by vote of 20 to 9.
' This iii face of an attack by Sen
ator Thomas who charged that a
combine exists between the Warren
Construction company and other con
tractors ! whereby secret manipula
tions in bidding are made and which
Senator Thomas asserted make Mr.
Booth's figures inaccurate and with
out weight. . .
OmuniM&ton Excoriated
The state highway commission was
excoriated for refusing to take the
advice of Attorney . General lirown
by laying a pavement of the same
general characteristics as the War
ren pavement, yet not infringing on
its alleged patent, so that this as
well as the questionable validity of
the patent might be a ground for
defense if the highway commission is
sued bv the Warren romoanv to .. 1-

paid since early last year.

no confidence in the highway coi.i-
mlssion and offered to pay the cost

The argument that paving can be
procured cheaper with paying royal
ties than without Senator Strayer
termed amusing and ridiculous.
For the closing speech in support
of the minority report. Senator
Lachmund yielded the floor to Thomas.
"It occurs to me that if the high
way commission bad desired to lay
a pavement Just a- little difieient
from the Warren pavement but just
as good, as it was advised to do by
Attorney General Hrown. this law
suit for $300,000 in royalty that is
coming would be avoided." snid
There if a common belief about
the state that a combination of events
between the Warren Construction
company and other contractors
whereby some remain out of tn?
bids through secret manipulations.
That is why the figures that have
been submitted by Commissioner
booth are faulty when be says that
even with royalty payments bitulithic
that has been laid would be cheap
er than other pavements.
Slam Taken at Hurley
"Hurley says that the Lachmund
bill would drive the Warren Con
struction company out of the state
with its big payroll and I can't help
but think that the thin he is in
terested in is not the Warren Con
struction company but its payro'l."
Senator Moaer did not participate
in the debate' but In explaining his
vote said he could not support the
bill but would support the Hare bill
prohibiting the highway commission
from paying royalty to anyone ur.'il

been determined.
