The onnosition is to letting the Roosevelt highway suck up
all the road money and to issuing bonds to build what is dis
tinctly a tourist, scenic highway. The Albany Democrat-
Herald states the case very plainly in the following editorial:
The Roosevelt highway humdingers, who have associated them
selves in the adventure of advancing their pet project by controlling
the politics of Oregon, will find, before they get through with it,
that thejr have tackled a herculean task. They will fail, as they
ought to! fall, because their movement lacks merit and their failure

"It la the plan of these boosters to support a candidate for gov

commissioner, who will promise to use bis position to complete the
Roosevelt highway. But these ardent promoters will find that their
suDDort of a candidate for governor will defeat him because the vot

that they will have few friends at court to help them promote their
