A resolution favoring tho repeal of
tho law passed by tho last legislature
reducing tho salaried Lano county
commissioners from five dollars to1
thrco dollars a day, was adopted at
a meeting of tho county budget com
mittee held at, tho court house on
Tho other Important pieces of
work accomplished at tho sarao tlmo
was tho passage of a resolution sug
gesting to tho county court that when
tho back taxes pn the O. and C. rail
road lands are received, at lcabt
$106,000 of the amount bo turned over
to the county road and bridges fund.
H. M. Potcrson, momber of the com
mittee from the Sluslaw country, In
troduced the resolution favoring tho
raising of the salaries of tho commls
solnera and after discussion It was
adopted. It reads as follows:
"Resolved that wo request our dele
gation in the legislature to repeal the
amendment passed at the last session,
which reduced the pay of our county
commissioners from $5 to 3 per day.
The committee held a long session
with the county court. The court gave
the estimates which each county offi
cial has mado as to funds necessary
to conduct his dopartmcnt of the.
county government and between now
and tho time for making up the bud
get to be published the members of
the committee will study these fig
ures. Tho members of the committee and
members of tho court will coopcrato
In working upon the budget and will
publish It as finally agreed upon be
tween them, Instead of working It
over after It is published.
The road and bridge sub-commit
teo of the general committee is tho
only sub-committee which has com
plctcd Itu work so far.
Three different subcommittees were
at work In the court house Tuesday
Each county official was called In to
explain the different features of hh
estimate, Whllo no announcement is
made, It Is said that an effort will be
mado to eliminate a few deputies in

It had been Intended when the gen
eral taxation committee met this if
tcmoon, that the several sub-commit
tees should make their reports, an.l
then the whole committee would gi'
before the county court and make rec-
commendations. However, the roadn
and bridges sub-committee was tho
only one to complete Its work. Tho
other sub-committees were granted un
til Frldey, and they will hold sessions
In tho meantime. Another general
meeting of the taxation committee will

FIFTH AND MAIN STREETS
A sale of a largo quantity of moun
tain lnural from one of tho National
Forests tn tho southern Aprplach
latiB Is reported by officials In chargo,
who say thnt tho roots will bo used
to make pipes.
Tho mountain laural root Is simi
lar to tho French briar, which tho
majority of smokers nro said to pre
fer. Tho French briar is tho root
of lhowhtto hoath or "bruyere". On
account of tho present scarcity and
high prico of French briar, a number
of pipe manufacturers in this country
havo been on tho lookout for substi
tutes, nnd tho Forest Products Labor
atory has conducted experiments to
detonnlno tho uvallobllty of other
woods. It Is roportod'that tho moun
tain laural root burns out more readi
ly than briar, but Forest Service ex
ports nro trying to find a method of
hardening tho wood and havo suc
ceeded to nn appreciable extent, Thoy
have found that a number of tho var
ious kinds of chaparral, which, are
abundant In tho west, give promise
of yelldjng material which will bo tho
equal of French briar In every way.
