'"Pursuant to your request" that 1
should carefully examine the pro
posed bills relating to the Improve
ment' or highways In the state of
Oregon, I delre to say that I have
made a careful examination of same,
and believe .that numbers 326 and
360 on the official ballot are en
titled to the support of the people
"You will, of course, understand
that 1 apeak with some diffidence and
reluctance, not being a cltlscn of thq
state, but ray views are entirely dis
interested, and expressed with the
bope that Oregon may at np distant
date enact laws which will resti'lt In
giving her good roads."
"I have given the most careful
consideration," explained Mr. Hill In
an Interview, "to'the proposed high
way legislation, and without refer
ence to the organizations promoting
them I have given my approval to
the measures I mentioned In my let
ters. I believe their adoption will
hea Oregon forward materially In the
plan, for Improving the highways "of
the state, and that they are the best
measures for Hie people at this
time. Undoubtedly improvements
and expansions In the plan will be
necessary as lime goes on.

employing convicts in road making.
