Engineer Head Off Possible Ef

Rock Crusher.
Crushed Rock Paid for at Rate of
25 Cents a Yard and Sand at 20
Cents Lower Than Contractors.
A possible combino among paving
and other contractors nnd tho possi
bility of nuy one firm's securing a
monopoly upon tho rock-crushing
plnnts of the valley lo hold up tho
county in highway construction, ban
been bended off by Stnto Engineer

of purchase, for tho stato highway
commission and tho county court,
from Colonel Frank H. Ray the Gold
Ray quarry and rock crusher and
the sand-pumping plant nbovc Gold
Rny dam.
The county pays 2j cents a yard
for tho rock crushed nnd 20 cents n
ynnl for tho sand used. The pay
ments npply on it purchase prico of
$30,000. The plant represents nn
investment of $49,000 and includes
fourteen acres of land and nil tho
machinery nnd equipment. If tho
county uses a sufficient quantity of
material it will own tho ultmt.
Tho plant will be sub-Icnscd to
contractors, or operated by. tho stato
and county to furnish material for
tho Pacific highway, contracts for
which "will bo let in sections.
Tlio first contract to be let wilj bo
for grading tho thirteen miles' of

Thero will bo n heavy rock qut on

being such that sttch a camp could
bo established to advnntago and u

highway effected. This, however, is
a matter for future determination
and depends upon tho bids mndc for
tho construction of this section.
Under n leaso three years ago, tho
Clark-Henery company paid 3.T
cents for rock and 35 cents for.snud
from the quarry. The rock is gran
