THE SALEM CAPITAL, )On?NTAL remarks that it is
in favor t)C good roads, but objects to tiny Invito bond
issue until a low more years have been spent experiinent
intr with materials.
That's what they all say every niossbaek in tho coun
try says he favors good roads, 'but ob.jeets to spending
money to build them, under one pretext or another, "here
is always an exeuse handy.
Oregon litis been experimenting for sixty yeais in road
building. It is about time that the experimenting eeased
ami real road building began.
Marion eounty spent last year some $250,000, as we
reeolleet it. on experimental roads. This year about
$175,000 is being spent for the same purpose. Vet there
is no eomplaint on the expenditures, despite the makeshift
character of the fifty-seven varieties of roads constructed
under the supervisoral system. In a few veal's a larger
sum than the bond issue is eaten up, with little to show.
The federal government and many state governments
have been experimeting for yeaiv with road materials,
highway construction and climatic effects. All the
main problems have been solved. Marion county does not
have to solve the road problem for the world. It has. on
the other hand, the benefit of all the road building and ex
perimentation the world has done, and the information is
avaiiaoie upon tiemaiui. its present system uoes not sotve
anything, but perpetuates the supervisoral graft.
There is no more need of delay and experimentation in
paving hisihwavs than there is in paving citv streets.
Waterbound macadam is a failure on both. Either as
phalt ie or concrete hard-surface pavement is satisfactory,
provided it is properly laid. If improperly constructed,
no pavement is of permanent value.
.If Marion county does not vote the proposed road bond
issue, it simply delays its own progress.
MAKING PAPER FROM FIR
How to Prune Roses
THE NEW YORK HERALD recently printed an issue
made from pulp from five different kinds of woods,
all grown on the Pacific coast. One of them was the white
fir and another the black pine both of which grow in pro
fusion throughout the Oregon forests.
The experiment was a test of products made at the
Forest Products laboratory at Madison, Wis., conducted
by the department of agriculture in co-operation with the
University of Wisconsin, in the effort to find substitutes
in the cheap and common woods for spruce, which is being
The paper made proved as valuable news print as that
made from spruce, and indicates a new use for the low
grade timber of Oregon, which will not stand freight
charges to the cast as lumber.
On a rough estimate, a newspaper with an average cir
culation of 60,000 copies and an average edition of twenty
pages uses each day the product of about four acres of
spruce forest. hen this tiguro is multiplied bv the great
number of newspapers published in the United States.
many of them with much larger editions, and when this
is further multiplied by 3G5, because many papers are is
sued every day of the )ear, it can be seen that the drain
upon the forests is enormous.
The utilization of comparatively worthless local woods
as paper will make profitable the operation of sawmills
and lumber factories on a large scale in Jackson county
the east furnishing a market for the pine and high-priced
lumber, the valley for Uie medium grades and the paper
mills utilizing the cheaper grades now wasted.
Bend Issues and Good Roads
(From the -Salem Capital Journal.)
Tho Medfonl Mail Tribune eaIN
attention to r. recent editorial para
graph in the Capital Journal com
incntiiij; on alleged cnndnlrf involv
ing the Jackson county court in the
matter of road contract,. The Mail
Tribune feliows that tliee charge
were an outgrowth of the attempt of
a certain road maehinerv hoii-c to
coerce and blackmail the county of
ficials into giving them liuinch.
These development resulted from an
inu'ftigiitiou by the grand jury,
Mihscdiient to (lie comment made by
the Capital Journal.
No are glad that the official down
there are proven hlainele nml we
hope that Jackou countyV 500,000

peojde in and around Medfonl are

The Capital Journal is not opposed
to. good load it is distinctly in fa
or of them. It is aware that 1 1 icy
will cot money, and a whole lot of
it. What we do ask of all concerned
in this .mjOiI roads movement is to
"make luihto hlowly." Methods- of
load building, tho type of roud nec
essary to withstand our traffic and
climatic conditions Imvo not yet
been Mitifnctorily worked out, nud
it seems to us that we should not
experiment with too large a mn ot
money. It would bo unfortunate to
tint state, or any county, to incur a
large inteicst-hcniing; debt nud in
the end have little or nothing in the
way of pcriiiaiiciit road construction
to show for it. This does not mean
that the money will bit stolen, but
Unit it may be hone-tly misspent In

For a concrete illustratien: Homu
three years ngo the editor of this
paper inspected tho construction of
a two and n ipinrtor-mile stretch of

Chchalis, Wash., on the line of the
proposed interstate Pacific highway.
It was of the Warrcnito typo of con
struction, nud cost, wo believe, .?ltlf

accepted hv the county court as a
good pieco of construction.

ble, was Iieintr rebuilt with a solid
concrete surface, a still more ex
pensive type of roatl.
Ho we want to pay for experi
ments of this character in Oiegou,
and be taxed for years to count on
the bonds that were sold to secure
tin wasted money 7
Again, we say The Capital Journal
will stand always for conservative
progress in city, county and state
affairs, but it is against reckless and
extravagant expenditure of money
for public improvements. shall
oppose any big bonding scheme for
xtuto highways until it is reasonably
certain that we have mustered the
art of permanent road building suf
ficiently well to insure I ho proper
value in return for the money ex
pended. That Jackson county will succeed
in building .$500,000 worth of good
roads with its bond issue wu sincere
ly hope. If o, other counties may
profit by its enterprise, following
along the line of the policv adopted
there, nud Tliu Capital Journal will
be the staiinchcnt advocate of tucli
u course for Marion county, ami tin
