CHANGE IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERS
IT is unfortunate that the niixifp in 'the kt'afc highway
engineer's office could not have hem delayed until
present contracts were completed. While technically
Major .Bowlby cannot act as state highway" engineer to
finish the work already -under way, there is no reason why
he should not temporarily act as assistant highway engin
eer, and as such supervise work and approve estimates,
the final approval of the new highway engineer being
liicrely a matter of form. By so acting as requested by
the state commission, he would rob the contractors' clique
of the fruits of their victory in aiding in his removal.
No mutter who is highway engineer, the position is
administrative and supervisory. The real supervision is
made and the estimates prepared by the assistants, of
course under supervision of the chief. If the present as
sistants are retained, and the estimates already approved
by 3owlby govern, the counties will not be mulcted by the
contractors, as they have schemed.
Major Bowlby suffered the fate pioneers in new work
usually suffer. Counties had been building highways, such
as they were, tit a cost ot trom if lOOU to .foOOO a mile. None
of them were permanent, none were scieutifieallv built.
"When permanent roads came
trom .$10,000 to if 1;,000 a mile, a hue and cry was raised at
once because the quantity of work expected could, not be
accomplished with the money available, and the state high
way engineer made the goat.
Another feature was the fact that most of Rowlby's
work was incomplete. A construction enterprise cannot be
judged piecemeal the completed whole must be awaited.
Nor is the layman a competent judge. Yet every taxpayer,
ignorant of the aims sought, felt free to indiilge'his author
ity as a sovereign citizen by expert criticism, which, joined
with the clamor of contractors and politicians, made life a
burden to tho commission, especiallv as everv mistake was
magnified, and hard times
It was not to be expected that a partisan administra
tion would be content with a non-political official. It was
to be expected that a new executive would want his own
appointee when the authority had been placed in his hands
to secure' it.
If Major Bowlby had been more tactful anil more of a
mixer he would have aroused less opposition. If he had
played polities instead of ignoring them he would have
been stronger. If he had been dishonest he might have had
the contractors' support. Instead, he was a mere road
builder, with perhaps a little too much theory. But his
work is permanent and along enduring lines. It -will last
long alter the builder has been iorgotten despite nns
takes that may have been made.' Years hence we will be
proud of the Siskiyou highway, and glad that it was built
for all tunc instead ot a cheaper makeshift that the future
would have to alter to lit ferowmg needs.
It is hoped that the new
tory to public and contractors, but it is doubttul if any
engineer can give complete satisfaction, and no engineer
can serve two masters. However, the pioneering has been
done, the public educated to the cost of good roads, tlie
organization completed, and work will run along smoother
than in the past, developing less friction.
One thing Jackson county is grateful for the acknowl
edgment by the commission
$J0,000 for Jackson county from the state highway funds
is less than the amount due the county approximately
$58,000. In this the commission has kept faith with the
people of Jackson county, despite Mr. Bowlby 's recom
mendation that they break their word.
Why Not a
To the Editer:
You may remember I Joked you
once for putting an artlclo on the
editorial pnge, becauso that pago was
not read. I have been Interested
lately In reading that page. Your
nomination of Penrose snd Cannon
would delight yourjrlend, Col. Iloose
velt. Though I havo voted for every
presidential condldate of the repub
lican party from General Fremont
in 18SC, to the last election, I then
voted for Wilson, and. don't regret
1 cannot make tho boast that
Speaker Clark made that ho never
scratched tho democratic ticket. I
havo not only scratched the republi
can ticket, but aiaea in deieating
more than one party, unfit for the
offico ho sought.
In your artlclo In answer to the
Illinois paper, which criticised the
Oregon plan of voting, you did an In
Justlco I think to Senator Sherman.
He does not belong to the Lorlmer
II -eed of politicians. I sent that paper
to my son In Illinois.
I was pleased to noto that you gavo
tho credit for passage of the dry
amendment to tho women and tho
churches. "The women could do it
nnywhero" nnd the churches united
wcro Invincible, (To that effect.)
One of tho wisest conclusions you
1 am pleased to noto also that you
think Meilford may still prosper if
the saloons are offacted. I want to
ask it you think it could prosper if
all Its churches were effaced?
How many business men, or prop
erty holders could you get to vote its
churches out? Laying asldo their
personal rights to exist, how many
want them driven out? If all tho sa
loons can go and Medford still pros
per, how many believe the city could
maintain Its property values at fifty
cents on tho dollar for six monthB,
J( tho churches .should go, to say
nothing of tho moral lop.
"Why not now throw your influonco
to be constructed at a cost of
made soreheads out of the
engineer will prove satisfac
that Bowlby s estimate of
in favor of those things which tho
churches favor? Get them to unite
and establish a coffco club such as
Eugene has, a shelter for tho labor
ing man out of work, also a Young
Men's Christian association, a safo
social center for tho boys nnd young
nif n. Pitch in and help the churches
and so hasten the day of a Greater
Medford, the moral center of south
ern Oregon. Yours truly,
"H. D. PENF1ELD."
