In the course of the deliberations
of tho body the matter ot enabling acta

result that the following resolution
was adopted by a unanimous vote of
"Resolved, That the Cooa County
Good Roads Association endorses and
recommends to the voters of the coun

In furthering the dissemination of
this resolution of the body, a com
fittee of three -was named with in

various poltlcal and civic bodies ot the

the body has given as reasons for tf.'i
lu'icge ot this bill the follewing:
Arguments ia Favor
First That It is the only proposed
law which tvlll enable Cooo county
to ittlse a sufficient fund to build Ji6
necessary permanent roads.
Second That, under the provisions
ot this measure the matter of the
amount ot the bond Issue Is left whol
ly to the judgment ond discretion of
the county in which the tax Is as
sessed and the fund expended.
Third That, while In some counties
a 2 per cent bond Issue may be ade
quate, and that in others a 5 'per cent
bond Issue may be needed, In Coos
county and some others ot the Btate
neither ot these maximum limits will
bo adequate for the building of the
necessary permanent roads.
Fourth That this maesure. If It bo-
comes a law, will not, in any case.
work a hardship upon those counties
where a small bond issue is ample, but
that It will enable those needing a
larger fund to raise the same.
Fifth Wo contend that tho amount
of the bond issue should bo left whol

should not sot a maximum limit on

OIL 100 POOR
TO MAKE GAS
:wr y-w'tf' f - y'fe,a'f
' - .
Because of the poor nasbty of li
IXurnished by the Standard Oil com
pany, Medford, Awtland ana other
toVns' of the Rogue Rivet? Valley are
practically without gas. Scarcely
nny pressure obtains and the Oregon
Gas and Electric, company stnte that
the reason is that the oil is so in
ferior in quality that gas cannot bo
made from it.
At the same time all auto owners
nnd garages are loudly complaining
over the poor quality of gasoline tho
Standard Oil is furnishing. The
gasoline hns evidently been adulter
ated with water, as wuter is found
in no small quantity in it.
The local Standard Oil agent says
its the fault of eastern oil, the last
shipments having been made from the
east instead of from California,,
where the demand has ba greater
than the supply. Thia however dood
not account for the difficulty at the
gas plant where crude oil Is burned.
Evidently tho Stnndard Oil la taking-
advantage of its monopoly to
adulterate all of i(s products;
Tho gas company stato that the
oil is part water and so heavy that it
cannot bo pumped. New cars nro on
tho way, but thoro 19 no guarantee
that the product is any bettor and
tho conditions nro likely to Inst sev
eral days or longer.
All gas ranges are out of commis
sion and restaurants nnd hotels bad
