Yesterday at about noon the Linden-
Kibbe Construction Company finished
1 lying fourteen blocks of “bitucrete”
pavement for the city of Forest Grove.
Yesterday Mayor Sandford said: “ I
believe that Forest Grove, this Summer,
has received the best pavement in its
history. I was at first opposed to a
concrete base, but am now a firm be
liever in such a street. The Lindrn-
Kibbe Company have constructed their
work in a highly satisfactory manner,
and have been very accommodating
throughout their entire stay in our
Forest Grove now has forty blocks of
hard surface pavement, which is esti
mated at about four miles, which is
probably more per capita than any other
city in the State.
The pavement this year has been on
the Gales Creek road and on Pacific
Avenue, which gives hard surface roads
to the city limits in two directions. In
termediate blocks also were paved.
The bitucrete pavement which ha
been laid here this Summer consists of
a five-inch concrete base, on which i.-
laid an inch of surface “stuff,” which
is a mixture of fine rock and a com
pound of bitum, asphalt, etc. This is
bound to the base so tightly that when
tested the concrete would separate from
the concrete or the surface separate
from the surface before the surface
would separate from the base. This
pavement has all the good qualities of
any of the asphalt pavements, and in
addition combines the advantages of a
During the work in this city many
experts and others have examined the
paving as it was being laid here, and
all have been unanimous in saying that
Forest Grove was receiving absolutely
the best paving possible to obtain.
The boys on the job for the company
have been Jack Tyler, superintendent
of the entire work: G. E.JKu.npe, fore
man of the grading crew; Charles
Fletcher, foreman of the curb crew;
George Clawson, concrete foreman; Ed.
Hoskinson, surface mixer; Jack Bur
dette, foreman of the hot stuff crew,
and several hundred helpers under their
supervision. The heads of the company
have frequently inspected the work, to
see that tbftir instructions for a first-
class job were being satisfactorily
BOLD ROBBER MAKES
GOOD HIS GETAWAY
Betwee 3:45 and 5 o’clock last Friday
afternoon an unknown thief entered
the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Baber
who with their daughter Mrs McCloud
live on the south east comer of First
Avenue and Third Streets. At about
fifteen minutes of f jur Mrs. Baber and
her daughter went out calling and re
turned at five o’clock. Mr. Baber was
at work which left the huuse alone fur
one hour and fifteen minutes. All the
doors were locked, Mrs Baber was the
first to enter the house and noting a
soiled piece of linen on the dining table
she at once saw that something was
wrong. Also the window was open.
The thief evidently enteied the dining
room thru the window, took a purse
containing considerable money from
the secretary, which was in the hallway
adjoining the dining room, and proced-
ed up stairs to the room of Mr. Baber
from there he went into the chamber
of Mrs. McCloud. Both of these rooms
were ransacked. Returning down staiis
his thoughts evidently centered on the
sideboard which contained some very
valuable silver, He laid the linen clo.h
on the table, at this point in his work
