COURT III HUDDLE
THE state capitol waa deader
than dead yesterday with, but
very few senators and legis
lators to b en. Most of them
had scattered for their homes, to
gain a breathing spell before the
real rash begins next week. Or
dinary strtefcotna activities seem
greatly curtailed during the ses
sion, departments are especially
reluctant to release news, feeling
the least said the better when the
legislative switch is so near; at
hand and might be osed.
Governor .Meier treked i off
for Portland Vrklay and I an
nounced be would not be back
until lb first of the weft. I Ho
expect to-attend to some busi
ness matters and he will pre
sumably consult with CoHmel
Clark regarding the utility leg
islation which Is likely to bo in
troduced Monday. 1
Linn county is exceedingly
proud of Senator Marks as presi
dent of the senate, not alone be
cause the senator is popular in
his own county, hut because lie is
the first Lrna county roan to pre
side over either house in 65 years.
He is the fifth to hold: this honor
from Linn county. In and Just
before the early days ot state
hood, two other Linn county men
presided over the senate and two
were presidents ot the bouse. Lu
ther Elklns and Charles Drain
were In charge of the senate at
different sessions while Delaxon
Smith and J. K. Weatherford
served as speakers ot the house.
Weatherford served during the
ninth regular session,-from Sep
tember 11, 1876 to October ?0,
1876. His grandson now sits as
a i member of the 3 4th session,
i Newspapers were filed high on
representatives and senators'
desks yesterday awaiting the re
turn of their eager readers. The
house provides an allowance suf
ficient to let each member sub
scribe for seven papers during
the session while the senate al
lows each man to subscribe to
five. The delegates are Just as
anxious to know what the news
papers are saying about them as
are; the folks at home. The pa

Sooner or later, Mott faels,
this Oliver Twist of Marlon
county's road system, must ask
the county highway commission
for a i decidedly i larger helping
than It has to date received.
The court got busy yesterday
seeking to straighten out the sit
uation. It proposed to get ; In
touch iwith the I state highway
commission and to have it con
firm", in writing, the oral agree
ment made at the Portland
meeting when the 8100,000 for
est road funds were agreed p
n. Chairman Van Dueer could
not be reached as he is In Cali
fornia. When the court can get its
situation down in black and
white, it expects : to present Mr.
Mott with a letter, , urging him
not to seek the Inclusion of the
North Santiam ! on the state
highway map and affording him
a complete reason for any carry
ing out at pre-election promises.
Mott would not say last night
that even with 'this written re
quest from the! court in his
bauds, i -he would desist in his
legislative efforts la write North
Bantlam highway on the new
may.. lie said his first move
when tbe court's letter was re
ceived weald be to consult the
county delegation and to see
what Its wishes would be.
The entire question appears to
be one of procedure alone, since
, the - court, Mott and the entire
delegation all want the North.
Santiam highway. In other
words, the question Is the old
one ot the best way to skin a
cat; and the court and Repre
sentative Mott have each elected
a different procedure.

ROAD TO BE GRADED
TORTLAND. Ore., Jan. 16
(AP) Grading of a 91-mlle
connection between Lakevlew
and Burns In eastern Oregon at
a coet of 11845.000 was approved
today by tho state highway com
mission. Work probably will be
gin In April, the commission said.
The work .will be paid for out
ot the 3195,000 federal road
funds made available under the
Oddle-Colton bill. W. H. Lsnch,
divisional engineer for the , bu
reau ot public roads, said ; the
sum approved by the commission
would virtually complete grad
ing of the road.
The remaining $10,000 of the
federal funds, the commission
decided, is to be uoed for a sur
vey ot a proposed shortcut be
tween the Wapinttla cut-off and
Madras oa The Dalles-California
A bulky report coverings six
possible short : cuts from Port
land to the sea was submitted to
the commission by tho state en
gineer's department. The com
mission did not make public the
Lynch urged the commission
to take immediate action on tho
proposed Wallulu cut-off. Tho
road would run along tho : Co
lumbia river from Umatilla to
the Oregon-Washington line to
connect with a Washington high
way. The cut-off would shorten
the distance between Spokane,
Walls Walla and lower Columbia
river points. !
Action was positioned for an
other meath until Chairman Van
Duser returns from; a business
trip to California.
