Mail Tribune 100

Sept. 12, 1916


S. S. Bullis, who has returned from a trip to Chicago, commenting on the application for an injunction filed by Atty. Newman to prevent the sale of bonds by the city for the construction of the proposed Blue Ledge railroad, stated that he wished to have the papers served at once that the case might be tested and decided on its merits once and for all.

"It is preposterous," said Mr. Bullis, "that this charge of conspiracy should be made. It implies that the majority of the people of Medford must have been involved and that, you know, is impossible. The whole matter has emanated from the group who endeavor to kill every movement for improvement of business conditions that is started."

During his eastern trip Mr. Bullis visited several sawmill plants on the lookout for one to transport to Medford and put in operation. The establishment of the mill, he thinks, is assured.

"If we put the sawmill proposition through" he stated "I will build a few miles of railroad to tap the timber whether or not the bond issue is tied up. And that, I do not think is possible. The attempt is an absurdity."


A resolution for an amendment to the city charter providing for the solution of Medford's paving question by the 50-50 plan was introduced at the special council session last night. The plan and its probable effects were explained in detail by T. W. Miles, a member of the council committee who a year ago formulated the plan, and W. E. Phipps.

After considerable discussion, mostly favorable to the plan, the meeting adjourned until Wednesday night when it is probable that the resolution will be adopted.

The Central Point State bank was awarded an additional amount of $31 on the settlement of horses sold after impounding a year ago.
