Word from Salem seems to indl
cate disaster tor the ambitions of
Josephine county In seeking state
assistance In building some of the
difficult portions of the Pacific high'
way la the northern portion of the
county. Senator Smith Introduced a
bill enactment of which would gift
state assistance to the amount of
$15,000 In building the new road
from Orate creek to Mackla gulch
oa the highway. The estimated cost
of this piece of road building to $35,
S8, but the county agreed to bear
the balance. This piece of road to
of greatest use aad benefit to trav
elers, over the highway, being more
tat than a county road. It to
only the part of Justice that the state
bear its part of the expense of build
lag. But word comes that counties

It Is true that Josephine county
did not Issue bonds for road build
ing. She had other ways of reach
ing the same end. aad warrants were
Issued for the road work. The money
was spent aad the roads baHt, and

the planting of the land aad rbe dis
tribution of the water tor irrigation.
Here to where our people must
eome into the game. The" factory
was built at Grants Pass because it
was reasonable to expect that the
beets would be grown. ' And they will
'be grown. But to operate the fac
tory at anything like capacity it will
require that every available acre in
this vicinity be planted. Through
the Incorporation of the beet trowing
company lands that belong to non
residents, or that for other reasons
might not be planted, caa be made to
produce beets at $7 per ton, and
thus add to the prosperity of the
community and the success of the
factory. The man who has no acre
of his own to plant can buy a share
of stock in the new company and
grow beets without having to give
his personal attention to the opera
tion. He can collect bis dividend
just the same.
Washington. Jan. 20. The next
leak investigation hearing will be
held at the New Tork Customs house
Tuesday morning, the house rules
committee decided today.
The hearings may be transferred
back to Washington later. The com
mittee formally retained Sherman L.
Whipple of Boston, as attorney.
Whipple will leave probably for New
Tork to make plans for the hearing.
What witnesses will be heard first
will be left to Whipple. All witnesses
under subpoena, Henry said, will be
expected to hold themselves ready to
attend any bearings on instant notice
and must always tie in reach of the

Ing. Will It pay? we told our peo-; lowed a two-hone m !-,. with ..- .
pie that It would pay at $4.50 per
ton. Other districts had made It
pay at that Then the price was
boosted, and boosted again. A ton
of beets will now bring the grower

company will' farm, win produce an
average, certainly, of 15 tons per
acre. Last season's experience dem

will be pretty good stuff to own. The

labor problem.
Hut bigKer than the question of

the moral support which ownemhlp
of this stock will represent. It Is
every citizen's duty to get behind
the enterprise, and there Is no way
he can do it better than by encour
aging the growing or beets. Here Is
a substantial way of offering that
encouragement. When every citizen
has an Interest In the beet crop, there
will be no room for donMing the
loyalty of our people toward this
great industry that came asking only
for beet.

Amsterdam, Jan. 20. The British
steamer Ysrrowdale, officially an
nounced to have "been brought In
harbor" with survivors from other
prizes taken try the German raider,
is at Swlnemiinde, according, to s
Cologne Oazctte dispatch here today.
Rio ds Janeiro, Jan. JO. First re
ports Indicating the general location
of the German south Atlantic raider
was received here today. The BraaU
ian packet steamer Bahla report ed
she had sighted a vessel, believed to
be the raid sr. off the coast of Rio
Grand e dl Norte oa Thursday. . The
stranger was traveling north at a
speed estimated at about 30 knots. No
consort was sighted wfth her.

Practically ail South American na
tions are taking steps to guard the
neutrality of their territorial waters.
The Uruguayan government sent the
steamer Coraario from Montevideo to
day to patrol its coast line. The Bra
xlMaa government already has dis
patched several of its war vessels to
back op enforcement of neutrality.
(Meanwhile, dispatches up and down
the 8outh American coast Indicated a
concentration of allied warships In
these waters. -

American Consul Oottsrhslk de
clared today his official advices Indi
cated a "pre-determined plan to avoid
attacks on passenger ships to avoid
possibility of the loss of life of such
travelers and any International complications."
Only cargo boats have so far been
captured or sunk. The German ses
rover Is likewise scrupulously care
ful to hoist his true colors as soon
as within gun range of vessels he
overhaules, Judging from survivors'
stories received here from Pernam
buco although la most cases the
raider adopted the strategeni of fly
ing British colors In the pursuit.
AH those who have seen the raider
unite in declaring she Is capable of
great speed aad some of the survi
vors added that she was jammed to
the batches with ammunition.
Allied ship owners here have an
nounced Indefinite suspension of sail
ings and are still anxiously awaiting
news of several vessels which are now
overdue. Among these Is the British
steamer Ortega. Her agents, how
ever, profess optimism as to her
, Shipping on the Pacific coast of
South America Is likewise worried
over the German raider or raiders
since It to generally accepted here
now that the original commerce des
troyer has outfitted as auxiliary raid

number of messages have been dis
patched from Santiago, Chile, to the
United States discussing some means
of preventing the European (bellig

the Americas.

Senator Harding, republican of
Ohio, said today:
