The Dodge car which ran into the front yard of the Adventist church on North Riverside yesterday morning destroying a tree, belonged to George Tetherow of Grants Pass and was being towed by another car from Yreka to Grants Pass.

The right front wheel of the car ran over the tow rope and the car was thrown to the left hand side of the street where it collided with the tree. The men who were towing it, and the driver, left it and went on to Grants Pass.

Chief of Police Timothy took the car into custody and had it towed to a garage where it rested until the owner came for it last night. The owner agreed to reimburse the church for the loss of the tree and $2.00 was accepted by the church for the damage done.

The local police also recovered a Chevrolet car which was stolen from this city Saturday night. The car belonged to a man named Boardman. The license plates had been removed and those from the Ford truck of the Medford Lumber company had been substituted. The car was found Sunday near the Bear Creek bridge east of Central Point and was minus spotlight and battery.


The county commissioners have decided to spend $50,000 of the county market road fund on the Butte Falls road and will advertise for bids soon. They will grade and macadamize the road and expect the amount to complete the road from Butte Falls to the top of Rocky Hill, about four miles, and from the Crater Lake highway to the junction of Crowfoot and Butte Falls road, about seven miles. This will be splendid news to the people of the county and of Butte Falls especially.

The federal road department at Portland will open bids about April 20 for the Crater Lake road from Trail to Prospect, and will no doubt let the contract then. This is for grading macadamizing the road, excepting about nine miles.
