NO BAN ON MOTOR TRUCKS
Will Continuoto Operato Eugono
That motor trucks with solid
tlr.es will not be prohibited on tho
I Eugene-Springfield road, as they
have on several other roads of
tho county during tbe winter
j months on account of the dam
age they do, was the statement
of M. H. Harlow, county com
missioner. Ever since the court made an
order to the effect that such ve
hicles be prohibited from run
ning on different roads until the
first of May, there has been
much speculation as to what
action is to be taken with regard
to tho Eugene-Springfield road.
This road is used more than any
other in the county by such ve
hicles, principally by the lumber
truck operated by the Booth
. Kelly company, and the busses
of the Jitney corjipany that oper-
arcs netween tne two ciues.
County Commissioner Haflow
said: "It would not be good
business to interfere with the
shipments of lumber made every
day from Springfield to the Ore
gon Electric cars in Eugene. The
amount of lumber shipped in this
way means a business of over
'$250 a day for the Booth-Kelly
company, and I am informed
that $200 of this amount is dis
tributed locally. It would -be un
just to the company and to the
I community alike if the court
prohibited the operation of this
lumber truck on this road. Con
sidering the relative damage
and benefits, we cannot afford
, to-do it."
By bringing the lumber to Eu
gene froiwthe mill at Springfield
means 'the company has of ship
ping over the Oregon Electric
line. The company does a large
business with the cities along
the allied Hill lines and by ship
ping over the O. E. is the only
way to reach these citie3. The
