DOINQS AT THE COURT HOUSE
: Items of Interest to the Taxpayers of Josephine County
From the Various County Officials v v
Hunters Taking Llscenses
Already the hunters of Josephine
connty are beginning to take oat
license! required by law of tlinte who
desire to pursue the chase within the
confines of the county. Those who
hae jot obtained this desired docu
ment are as follows: Q. P. Atchi
son, Jr i Aaron Brltton, of Grants
Pass; S. E Robinson, of Wilderville;
Hiratn Perry, Clyde Kitclien, D L
Robrts, Jasper Jenniogs, A L Dale,
of Josephine county.
Registration Quite Brisk.
These are busy days around the
connty clerk's office, much of the nn
usual stir being due to the fact that
the circuit court is now in session, hot
perhaps most of the activity is ou ao
count f the lively manner in which
the Toters of Josephine connty are
calling at that office to register for
the approsching primaries. Of coarse
the republicans are largely in 'the
majority, although there ate some
democrats, and now and then a social
ist and hers and there (a prohibition
ist. Clerk Cheshire and Deputy
Veatch are ready to enter the voters
and the visitors find these officials
obliging and competent. Clerk Chesh
ire hopes to see the voters come in
at fust as they can conveniently do
so, as this early registering will ob
viate much delay and the customary
rush which often occurs about the
time the books close.
Some Rectify Transferee.

Liquor Men to Hold on.
Attorney O S Blanclmrd thinks that
the Courier's court reporter was a bit
misinformed regarding the statue of
the liquor license application of Wise
man & Light, to dispense liquid re
freshments to the people of Leland.
He asserts that the said ptruiit was
granted for a period of six months, al
though the minutes of ths court only
state that f 100 was paid, for a period
of three months. Aod as to the
saloon keepers having to close up
their place of business, he emphatic
ally declarts that no such understand
ing win expressed or implied, Jwht-a
the county court granted the license.
The reporter states that he obtained
his information from persons oho
were iu attendance upon the court,
when the matter was np for consider-!
atlon and that lie had every reason
to believe that his Informant was
telling liim the truth about 'he mat
ter. Ou the contrary, Mr. Blanrhard
affirms thst bis clients will continue
to'dtal iu booze, after the six nn nibs
are up, as lie avers that they have

the ronrthouse doings, tbe Courier
endeavors t" five the farts uiul to
confine iUelf to the tiuth in all hucTi
matters. Jtut what ' were the actual
facts in this controversy seem to be"a
matter nptn which leteral persons
fail to agree.
Some Minor Mentions
Daniel W. Mitchell has been p
p inted adminiotiauir of the estate i f
VictoriaA" Mitchell, .rleTea-edT" The
cotrt fixing his bond at f 3.',(X). Hit
application of the husband, sets forth
that the following are the heirs:
Cora S Tu'ner, f Merlin ; Edith A
Frakes. ot U'uatilla county; Victoria
Mitchell of Burmah, India, a Mis
sionary j Daniel W Mitchell, of Eu
gene; Either Mitchell, of Merlin all
grown, tic-Tt ths latt two aanied.
Messrs. James Wilson, Frank Auttin
aud H L Keyte have been appointed
appraisers of the said estate.
Monday morning Sheriff Rnsaell
wa called up on the 'phone from
Meilin aud informed' that the even
ing before the afe of the Merliq Mer
cantile Co., had been blowu open by
burglars aud something like 3i0 in
casli extricated therefrom. There
was no oloe, whatevsr, as to who was
the perpetrator of the deed. How
ever, mauy hoboes have been seen
around the place and it is thought
that some one of the gentty has had a
hand in the matter. Sheriff Russell
dispatched a depot? to "the scene of
the robbery, at once, while officers
from Merlin cams np to the county
seat, hoping to get some clue from
the hobo crowd that usually congre
gates in this city.
A T Lewis was before the County
Clerk. Monday, having papers made
out for his new patent for the manu
facture ef concrete building blocks.
He informed the Courier mau that his
plan did away with all trouble from
Irost, heat and moisture, things
which have Deen worrying all users of
other makes of the artificial stone ma
terial. He claims to have discovered
a new plan, which puts to an end all
suoh bother. He cob templates going
into the manufacture of this bal ding
material just as soon as his patent is
perfected and already he has several
applications for territory. He feels
oonfident that he has struck It rioh

The Sevmpaon Murder Case.
Last year the orcbardlsts and
farmers of Josephine County found
that the Sampson Spray was ths beat
means of murdering the San Joes scale
anthracnose and other fruit tree pests.
It ought no longer be necessary to
u'ge npon any fruit grower ths Im
portance of spraying. Whether one
has only a dor.su trees in thla yard or
an orchard of hundred acres or
more, he mast spray thoroughly in
ordsr to obtain the best result and be
justified in growiag trees at alL
Sampson Spray ts always ready for
instant nse. It is to b diluted with
water, one part of the concentrated
solution to nine to 11 parts water, ac
cording to the strength reqaired for
the particular purpose.
Sampson Spray will be oo sale by
dealers in .every fruit district the
coming . season. Interested fruit
growers are invited to call or write
for further information required.

A Concert That' Failed.
Huns Pfllzuer, the composer of "The
Uose In the Harden of Love." says the
Munchener Nouesteu Nacltrichten,
a peculiar experience at Cologne,
where he hud arranged to give a song
recital nt one of the hotels. In bis
own account of the "concert that fall
ed," written iu rhyme, the composer
says, "Only two tickets were sold after
much advertising and the display of
many pictures." The purchasers were

bui.ig pr. : ot. When all hories as to
au'ileiice bad fulled he asked ti have
supper Kerw In the empty concert

take the meal In "grand solitude" the
ll'it.-i were turned out, and so was he.
MODEL ROCK R04D.
First Strip Constructed In Wisconsin
Under Direction of U. 8. Engineers.
There has recently been completed
in Rock county.' Wla.. the first strip of
road built under the supervision of
United States engineers since Wiscon
sin emerged from a territory Into the
dignity of statehood, says a Janesvlllu
(Wis.) correspondent of the Milwaukee
Sentinel. Incidentally it is tbe first
model road to be constructed In Wis
consin on rural roads with proper ma
chinery on rules laid down by the
government This strip of road is
three-quarters of a mile iu length and
lies a hulf mile east of Clinton, In Uie
township of that name.
When the county board met last
spring tbe towns of Clinton, Plymouth,
Center, Fulton, Bradford. Belolt and
lllltou all appropriated sums ranging
from $400 to $1,000 for the construc
tion of good roads. According to the
state law, the county board was of ne
cessity forced to appropriate from
county funds nn equal sum for each
town equal to their appropriation.
Just nt this time Samuel C. Lancas
ter of the bureau of good roads at
Wnshlngtou spoke ln-fore the state
legislature, and Mr. Ilotcbklsa. secre
tary of the state good roads move
ment, prevailed upon him to visit Itock
county as the ouly county In the state
which hud appropriations for tbe pur
pose. Ills visit resultcnl In the good
roads bureau at Washington being pre
vailed upon to send a complete set of
road building machinery aud engineers
to construct three-quarters of a mile
of model road as an examplo for the
rest of the county to follow.
While the cost of the road rau over
the $2,000 appropriated, this was due
to high prices of material and long
hauls aud can be easily overcome In
Tbe road is built with a twelve foot
crown or macadam center. The rock
bed is eight inches deep, tbe stone be
ing crushed from a thickness of four
teen to eight luches. Tbe regular mac
adam process was used. A layer of
coarse rock four Inches thick was first
laid, then a layer of thinner rock plac

The question of drainage for the
road was carefully looked to. Side
drtches and culverts were placed where
water was liable to do serious dam

paid to the formation of the land

Tbe government outfit nsed consist
ed of a portable stone crusher, a re
volving sieve, which separates ths
rock after being crushed; bins, a steam
roller, a sprinkler wagon, Bcrapers and
