Further probe into the scandal mongering tactics of contractors peeved by failure to secure contracts on Pacific Highway work was begun this morning by a new grand jury. Major Bowlby of the state highway commission was among the witnesses, and a thorough investigation of the attempts to besmudge the reputations of state and county officials will be made. It is expected the work of the grand jury will be completed this afternoon.

Tomorrow the grand jury will begin investigation into alleged violations of the Blue Sky law in this section, and purchasers of stock in oil, land, mining and hardwood timber projects will be witnesses. From the source thousands of dollars have been drawn from Jackson County for outside developments.


Information is sought by John McCully of Harper, Kans., regarding the wherabouts of his brother, Granville McCully, who was last heard of in this section two years ago, and also at Marshfield. The Masonic and I.O.O.F lodges of this section have been asked to aid in the search.

The missing man is described as being about 58 years of age, dark complexioned, slightly hard of hearing, about five feet eight inches in height, one finger missing from hand, wears a moustache and is slightly stooped and a member of the I.O.O.F.


Eagle Point — Our president of the W.C.T.U., Mrs. Minnie Bryant, made a special call for the members of our union to convene at the church this morning at 9:30 o'clock as our county superintendent, Mrs. Lydia C. Howell and Mrs. Godlove of Medford came in on the morning train and would be our guests. At our most successful meeting, the ways and the means of a great many things were discussed and digested.

At 12 o'clock we adjourned and repaired to the temperance hotel conducted by Mr. and Mrs. Owens, where an elegant lunch was spread for our benefit in which we were all amply provided for with the good things to eat, and socially we enjoyed every minute of the time.

After lunch we repaired to the parlor where we entertained with music, singing and playing by the Rev. Mr. Simmons and Mrs. Betty, also instrumental music by Professor Haight, which was par excellence. Train time arrived and our guests were escorted back to the afternoon train by the members of our union, who requested them to come again, and they would always receive a hearty welcome from their Eagle Point sisters in the union.
