will extend live mile» south, thence
one mile we»t to Cottage Grove, where
another bridge will be nece»»ary to

feet wide and practically level, cutting
out all tin- bill» arid dangerous railroad

mated that thirty farmiie» will he ben-

the old road will he kept up by the

that the parties who presented the new
road to the court were told to get the

The new road will perhaps be of little

ple are willing to help the residents of

> cases with the defense of the McNam­
ara brothers in Los Angeles, Judge
Woodson T. Slater, who is conducting
| the case for the plaintiff, opened the
arguments and the case before Judge
j Galloway here today.
11. J. Parkison was deeply scored by
| Slater for employing certain of the
circulators after he had been informed
that some of their work w h s fraudu­
lent. Slater held that Parkison is re­
sponsible for at least 10,000 names,
many o f which have been proven fraud­
The contention of the attorney for
the plaintiff was that inasmuch as the
pluintiff had produced prima facie evi­
dence that 0,788 were fraudu­
lent, the defense should hear the bur­
den of proof that the remaining names
were valid.
More than 5,000 names appeared on
sheets that had no petition heading,
which is strictly against the provisions
of the referendum law, and Slater con­
tends that these should he thrown out.
He also believes that the circulators
should be held accountable the same as
an election officer, so that if fraud is
proven against them, the petitions that
they circulated arc to he declared void,
as the election would be if the judges
and clerks were found guilty of fraud.

Stop Here.
Officials of the Southern Pacific from
Portland and San E’rancisco passed
through here Wednesday on a tour of
inspection. They found things in a
satisfactory condition and made no
statement of any contemplated im­
provements. This is the second time
this station has been inspected within
ten days, which may mean that some
improvement in the way of a depot
may he under consideration.
Local Mill Men Unable to Get Cars
Local mill men are having difficulty
in securing sufficient cars to make
their shipments. This condition has
prevailed for some time. This is a
peculiar condition, as freight traffic
is comparatively light, but it is learned
that between 1,500 and 2,000 cars are
laid up for repairs on aide tracks along
the line, as a result of the shopmen's
strike, which seems to be as far from
being settled as it was a month ago.
The railroad commission will not allow
these cars to be used until fitted for
service, and it is understood that the
railroad can not secure sufficient help.
To Attend House Warming.
It is expected that fifteen or more
members of the Commercial club will
attend the house-warning given by the
Eugene Commercial club this after­
noon and tonight. That number of
members have signified their inten­
tion of going, and several more are ex­
pected to join the party. The Eugene
i club promises the boys a good time.
President Gray, of the Oregon Short
1 Line and C. C. Chapman, manager of
the Portland Commercial club, are on
the program as speakers.

High School Boys Succeed in Beat­
ing Gridironers from Agri­
cultural College.
Last Saturday the football team of
the Cottage Grove high school played
against a team composed largely of
Cottage Grove boy* who are now at­
tending the O. A, C.
The game
proved to be fast and interesting and
resulted in a score of 10 to 0 in favor
of the high school boys. The spectac­
ular features of the game were the
punting of Williams, the visiting full­
back. and the forward passes of the
home boys, which
they repeatedly
worked with success.
The Corvallis boys complained some­
what of shabby treatment given them
by the local boys. They also charged
that the coach of the local team
agreed to fill out the O. A. C. team,
and that, after learning the signala,
went back on them and played with
the high school team. The O. A. C.
boys also claimed that no competent
foot ball judge would have conaidered
allowing points by which the local
team scored.
