The question ot a' library building
for Grants Pass is brought to public !
attention again through receipt by
(he mayor ot a letter from the sec
retary of the Carnegie Corporation of
New York, asking as to writ dispo
sition has been made of the promise
made the city tour years ego. At
that time Mayor Smith entered into
the state seems to have been accom
plished In a pretty definite manner
by the bill.' This Is true ot portions
ot the Pacific Highway, in wh'ch the
people ot this district are especially
Interested, but It is not true ot those
portions that are vital to us. From
Multnomah county line to the north
line of Douglas county no doubt Is
left as to the course which the Pacific
Highway shall follow. Neither Is
there doubt as to the course of the
correspondence with ' the Carnegie
corporation, and the definite promise highway through Jackson. But the gap
was made that a building to con $12,- between these two points l. lelt !n
S00 would be erected here upon the the following Indefinite language,
guarantee .that the city would main
tain it through a fund of $1,250 per
annum. No action was taken upon
the proposition, and the Ca-negle
people now state that unless the city
is about to undertake- the construe
tion of the building th-t agreement of
tl ? corporation will be -insldered as
"' At the present time the city is ap
propriating for the maintenance of
the free library $1,200 per year, and
has upon at least one occasion ap
propriated $1,500. Thus the city can
have the' Carnegie building without
more expense to itself than at pres
ent, though a vote ot the people to
guarantee the permanency of the an
nual fund would probably be requir
ed. It is argued by some that a $12,-
quoted from the bill: "The road run
ning from the north line of Douglas
county to the' Jackson county line
over the line of the Pacific Highway
as adopted by the state highway
commission." A later provision in
the bill states that Douglas and Jo
sephine counties may have a paved
highway If they shall make their por
tions of the highway ready for the
paving, but it still leaves a doubt as
to the construction the commission
yet to be named by the governor may
place upon the establishment of the
