Aiiiiounceinent was received here
this morning from l'ortland that the
carload of gasoline ordered by the
HuHineHs Men's association will ar
rive in Independence in a few days.
It will contain a little over 8000 gal
'ns and i8 a part of a trainload
which is being shipped from Tulsa,
Oklahoma to Portland.
Much trouble was experienced in
getting this gasoline. It was first
purchased in Texas, and was sche
duled to arrive here more than a
week ago, but there was some hitch
in the final transaction, necesstat
ing considerable delay before an
other train load could be rounded up.
As soon as the gasoline arrives
here an effort will be made to notify
as many people as possible, in order
to secure a wide distribution. The
probable cost of the gasoline cannot
be determined until the receipt of
car. It is bought f. 0. b., Oklahoma,
freight and cost of unloading will
have to be added. It will be sold as
near actual cost as it will be possible
to determine, as the association has
no desire to make any profit on the
its flu,,,

Mrs. K. C.
Sloper Bros, have commenced
planting brocoli on an extensive scale.
Last year they raised the first big
commercial crop ever grown here,
making it a supplementary crop in
their baby hop yards. They will try
it again this season. Plants are
grown in cold frames, similar to kale,
and then transplanted.
Sloper Bros, raised a fine crop last
year, marketing it this spring. They
were unfortunate in that the rail
road strike was on when the crop was
ready for shipment. Instead of ship
ping it by freight much of it was
sent to Seattle and Chicago by ex
press. This greatly reduced the pro
fit, but in spite of this return was
quite satisfactory.
Sloper Bros, were the first to start
growing brocoli on a commercial
scale in this locality.' Others are
trying it this season.
Independence's chance of winning
the championship of Polk couty went
a glimmering last Sunday, when
Falls City defeated the locals on the
Falls City grounds by a score of two
to three.
In many respects it was a very
pretty contest, and had it not been for
a few errors on the part of Independ
ence, there would have been a differ
ent outcome.
Falls City made one run in the first,
one in the third and another in the
fourth. Independence made its two
runs in the eighth.
This made the third contest with
Falls City, Independence getting one
decision and Falls City the other
Had Independence come out vic
torious in this game, the chances of
carrying off the county pennant
would have been exceedingly good,
with Perrydale as the only real con
tender. The "Colts" will take a vacation for
a couple of weeks, as some of the
members of the team have outing
plans which would conflict with
games during this time.
Work was actually started on the
rebuilding of the sawmill of the Wil
lamette Valley Lumber Company in
this- city Monday morning, says the
Dallas Itemizer. The company has
been exceptionally fortunate in being
able to secure machinery with which
to equip the new mill without un
reasonable delay. As it is known, it
is almost impossible nowadays to se
cure any kind of new machinery for
immediate delivery. The local com
pany, however, will have part of
its new plant here this week and the
remainder is already in transit from
the eastern manufacturers. This was
made possible by the fact that the
owners of large mill in Portland that
was burned several months ago de
cided not to rebuild after their ma
chinery had been ordered. It was a
portion of tihs equipment that the
Willamette Valley Lumber company
has secured for their new mill here.
It is expected that all will be here
by the time the new buildings are
ready to house it, and that the mill
will again be in operation . within a
few weeks.

Announcements have been received
here of the marriage of Miss Eliza
beth Cosper to Charles Guy Wever,
which was celebrated in Portland on
Wednesday of this week. The bride
is a daughter of O. F. Cosper, owner
of the telephone Bystem until a few
years ago. Upon the sale of the
plant here the family moved to
Lebanon, where Mr. Cosper was en
gaged in the same business. Recent
ly selling his interests there he has
purchased an apple orchard at Yaki
ma, Wash.
Mr. and Mrs. Wever will make
their home in Yakima. The bride
took an exceedingly active part in the
social affairs of Independence for
many years. She was president of
the Civic Club for a time and was
identified in other welfare move
ments. She was deservedly popular.
The announcement of her marriage
came as a pleasant surprise to an
exceedingly large circle of admiring
friends here.

about 80 head of fine beef cattle at

ler and Mr. Ostien will conduct the
work. -

a m'enic Monday evening on the
Luckiamute. The affair was in the
nature of a farewell party for Miss
Mary Williams.
Dallas and Independence have
again scored in the highway con
troversy. A restraining order against
the continuance of paving opera
tions between McCoy and Monmouth
has been issued by Judge John Mc
Court in the Multnomah county cir
cuit court. Upon the filing of a ,
$10,000 bond, which has been signed
by approximately 100 Dallas and
Independence business men, paving
will be stopped with the exception of
10OO feet at each end of which is
rocked and ready for the top dress-.
This restraining order will con
tinue until August 30, when the mat
ter is scheduled to come up for final
consideration. It will then either
be made pemanent or dismissed.
This affects two contracts. The
Warren Construction company be
tween Monmouth and Rickreall, up
on which there is about a mile of the
highway still to pave, and Con- !
tractor Kern who has been operating
between McCoy and Holmes' Gap.
Concerning this new angle to the
highway muddle, the Oregonian says:
The Pacific highway must pass
through the cities of Dallas and In
dependence and state highway com
mission funds cannot be spent for
the completion of a link in Polk
county now under construction which
connects these towns only through
spurs out from the main highway,
ruled Citfcuit Judge John McCourt
Monday when he signed an order re
straining the commission from fur
ther operations along present lines. Jr
In a previous tentative ruling,
Judge McCourt has held that the Pa
cific highway proper had to pass
through Dallas and Independence,
but that the commission might go a
head with the work on a short cut,
if money spent thereon came from
gasoline or automobile taxes and not
from the bonds floated for the build
ing of the Pacific highway. Argu
ment by John W. Kaste last week
succeeded in changing the mind of
the judge regarding the possibility
of any further work on the short-cut.
Under his decision further construc
tion must be v done, if at aU with
county funds.
The Injunction proceeding was
brought by Dallas, Independence,
Edward E. Piasecki, district attor
ney of Polk county, and others,
against S. Benson, E. E. Kiddle and
R. A. Booth of the state highway
commission and others. The deci
sion was in a hearing on a demurrer
to the amended complaint.
The restraining order, which will
become effective as soon as a $10,
000 bond is filed and approved by the
court, prevents the commission from
continuing the work south from Mc
Coy towards Holmes' Gap or from
Rickreall to Monmouth, except for
approximately 1000 feet at each end
which is already rocked and rendy for
the top dressing.
Though it is expected that an im-
mediate appeal will be taken to the
supreme court, the decision settles
for the time being the question as to
the right of the state highway com
mission to ignore the wish of the
legislature as to the route of high
ways through the state. The high
way commission is considered a better
judge of advisable routes than the
legislature ' by Judge McCourt, who
held, nevertheless, that the law
makers had the right to fix the route
and, having done so, that the route
could not be changed.
