Republicans After
LaFoIIette's Scalp
Republican headquarters, represent
ing the republican party in Marion'
county, is out after the scalp of Alex
La Follctte. According to the republi
can way of looking at it, Mr. La Fol
lette has committed the unpurdonable
sin of pledging himself at tho republi
can primaries that he would abido by
tho decision of the primary election,
and then after h.e had been defeated,
bolting the party nomination."
And not only did he bolt his own par
ty, but ho has committed another
breach of political etiquette by ac
cepting the nomination on the demo
cratic ticket and coming out as a dem
ocrat. And all this after having been,
ever since the time of Abraham Lin
coln, a genuine dyed-in-the-wool re
publican. It will bo remembered that the con
test for the nomination on the repub
lican ticket for senator from Marlon
county to the state legisisNrs wae
closely contested between Louis Lach
mund, W. Al Jones, Alex La Follctte
and Sam Brown of Gervais. All, had
agreed to stand by the result of the
primaries. AVhen the counting was over
it was found that Mr. La Follctte had
been defeated by 90 votes by Mr. Lach
mund and by 50 votes by W. Al Jones.
Mr. La Follette and Air. Brown were
defeated. Mr. Brown still stands by the
republican party and accepted his de
feat in the best of spirit. Mr. La Fol
lette bolted and is now to all extent
and purposes, playing for the demo
cratic wote. nence republican head
quarters in Salem is out after his po
litical scalp.

Three Rivers Road In Tilla
mook Will Be Built By
Force Account
At a. meeting of the state highway
commission, held in Portland yesterday,
the commission decided to do the work
by force account on what is known as
tho Three Rivers road in Tillamook
county. This is a forest road croicct.
about 10 milrs long, and the estimated
cost is f Tlie work is grading
and graveling and it is estimated it
will take 10 months.
The commission authorized the ex
penditure of $15,000 in Wheeler and
Gilliam counties for maintenance of
tho roads.
A delegation from Coos county arU
peered Oerore tne commission request
ing the commission to provide funds
for macadamizing a section of the road
between Marshficld and Coquillc. The
commission appropriated $20,000 for
the purpose on condition that the ap
proval of the United States highways
council can be obtained. As a spruce
logging camp is located on the road,
the improvement is being urged as a
war necessity.
Since the U. S. highway council has
turned down tlte -(uverliead Hossing
which was to have been constructed at
Divide, the Lane county court has pe
titioned the public service commission
for a permit to coustruct a crossing
over the 8. P. tracks at grade. It is
understood the hignway commission
will oppose this.
The commission approved a propos
ed post road project between Bums
and rane, in Harney county, to cost
approximately $100,000, and the com
missdon will seek the approval of the
V. S. highways council. If the" road is
