In the first place, Mr. Kern believes
the county has been handicapped by
the tentative agreement made with
the state highway commission be­
fore the county court came into the
He is o f the opinion
that to obtain the credits due Coos
county for expenditures made in the
past will not be an easy matter, for
on his estimate, the coAnty will be
entitled to nearly $400,000 credit for
various highway improvements made
since the former bond issue.
On the practically established bas­
ic of 50-50 construction, as agreed
to for Coos county by Charles Hall,
Mr. Kern is none too confident we
■hall profit very much, for the rea­
eon, that he is doubltful of receiving
the just credit the county is entitled
to. He referred in bis talk to the old
understanding when the first bond is­
sue was mam, to the effect that the
agreed to match the expenditures. He
says the commisiaon is, of course,
obligated by that agreement, but
whether it will stand by it, is what
ia worrying him. Among the expen­
ditures that would deserve credit from
the state highway commission would
be the county highway bridge for
which bids were opened Tuesday at
Coquille, amounting on estimates to
$75,000. This is a portion o f the high­
way system on thè map; an expendi­
ture o f $50,000 on the county read be­

Nearly Up to Pre-War Price*
Milk is telling for $3.82 a hundred
pounds in Portland. That ia 16 per
cent lass than $3.00, the highest
price ever reached during and follow­
ing the war. We know o f no other
farm product that ha« fallen in price
ao Mttle as milk. Nearly all farm
crops are back to pre-war prices and
many of them art 60 per cent leas
than the maximum reached during
following the
srar.— Oregon
League Dairyman.
Mr. Kern, in referring to the
Roosevelt highway said that so far
as he was able to learn at Portland
when the cenfesance was held last
week, there is actually no expectation
that any money will be expended on
the project within two years, and at
the end of that time, he declares, the
$2,500.000 voted will revert to the
general state road fund. Commis­
sioner, Kern is not expecting to hear
anything definite from the state high­
way commission for some time, he
said, bu t he set no date.
Referring to “ the old understanding
when the first bond issue was made,”
we are quite sure that it was not a
50-50 proposition as stated but that
we heard Mr. Adams, one o f the first
commissioners under the new law, at
n meeting in Marshfield promise that
the commission would carry out the
pledge before made to Coos county by
a former body— that the state would
build the Roseburg road. But there
have been so many changes in the
commission since Mr. Adams’ day and
so long a time has elapsed without
the fulfillment o f the pledge that it
may not be considered binding now.

The mayor then asked that proper­
ty owners o f that district tell what
they desired in the way o f an im­
provement. Several responded and
from the tenor o f their remarks it ap­
peared that most all the residents o f
that section were desirous o f doing
something to keep out of the mud
next winter.
Two petitions covering different
streets out there, have been filed with
the council, but inasmuch to grant
them would necessitate the letting o f
:wo separate contracts and doubling
up o f tome o f the expenses, the coun­
cil decided to initiate a campaign o f
its own and instructed the city en­
