The first carload of beet sugar
from the new factory of the Utah-
Waho Sugar company at Grants Pass
reached Portland yesterday. The
sugar Is -pronounced by experts to be
equal to any beet sugar produced on
the coast. From now on the com
pany will ship a carload of sugar
dally to Portland. Next year the
output of the plant will be increased
to 250.000 tags, all of which will
be marketed here. Local dealers
are giving the new sugar the pref-
! erence and, being an Oregon product,
it will no doubt be loyaly supported
by Oregon consumers. The price Is
this same as that of other beet sug
ars. Oregonlan.

BLUE LEDGE RY. CASE
Medford, Jsn. 13. In a decision

defendants la the Injur.?. ion pro-c-t'tngs
tiled b- Chs Us H. OUy
and other taxpayers of Medford
agalnat the city council, the
em Oregon Traction company and
S. S, Bullis, to prevent the city from
entering Into the promised, contract
for the sale of 1300.000 of Blue
Ledge railroad bonds.
The decision sustains and pendul
ates the injunction, ia sweeping in
Its scope, rendering It practically
useless for the city to undertake to
proceed further In the matter as the
court holds that the contract entered
Into between the city and the South
ern Oregon Traction company Is not
the contract authorised by the voters,
but one entirely different, and not
binding the company to build any
stated amount' of road, or In any
manner following out the Intention
of the voters.
The court alao holds that the as
sumption of the $37,000 mortgage!
upon , the Rogde River Valley rail
road 'by the city was not authorised"
by the charter amendment. Suffic
ient evidence of conspiracy and fraud
Is declared existing to invalidate pro-
