The county court yesterday afternoon acted upon the request of a dozen Eagle Point business men that a rock crusher be moved to a point on Little Butte Creek about two miles above Eagle Point. The court made an order for the removal.
With the erection of the crusher at the new site, a great abundance of rock of excellent quality will be available for road purposes. Eagle Point plans to spend $10,000 in improving its streets and as they will also do some work upon county roads the removal of the plant was ordered. Chris Natwick will do the work.
Fire at an early hour today destroyed a residence occupied by B.F. Irving, a recent arrival from Texas, in Whitman's addition on South Central Avenue. The loss is estimated at $4,000.
Irving arose at 5 o'clock and started a fire in the kitchen stove. He then left for his barn, some distance away. In some manner the fire was started.
The department made a fast run, but could not save the contents of the building.
