8. Benson, chairman of the Oro
lun highway . commission ' will not
stand tor the spending of money for
gravelling; a hill route road from Pen
dleton to Echo but Insists Instead that
tha river route be selected so as to
secure a grade that will . make possi
ble the use of the road by motor
trucks without shifting to low gear.
It will mean an additional expense of
over 1100,000 to the county.
This la the substance of news
brought back from Portland this
morning by W. I- Thompson, eastern
Oregon member of the commission
and the information has precipitated
a surprising crisis with reference to
road affairs in the county. It means,
so It seems, that the county will get
no improved road from Pendleton to
the west end country unless steps are
taken to make use of the river route.
According to Mr4 Thompson the
matter, of the Umatilla county road
did not come formally before the
commission but Mr. Benson , has in
formally announced flat opposition to
tha bill route and will have the sup
port of Commissioner Booth should

A further feature of the case is that
a feeling prevails that Umatilla coun
ty has been getting a big share of
state money as compared to the a
ount being put up by the county. This
feeling It Is said would militate
against the county should the matter
come to a vote in the commission.
' Local good roads men, not wishing
to see the county lose out 'by not get

work next year are now casting about
for some way to save the situation. It
