ROAD GRAFT REPORT SOON

Albany County Grand Jury Near End of Foley Contract Inquiry.
ALBANY, April 15.—The Albany County Grand Jury, which has been in session for about a month investigating highway graft testimony, turned over to District Attorney Harold D. Alexander by Commissioner James W. Osborne, probably will report early next week. Chief interest centres in the inquiry into the operations of the old Highway Commission, consisting of C. Gordon Reel, Duncan W. Peck and John A. Bensel, and its Deputy, Charles F. Foley, in letting 318 highway repair contracts which involved approximately $3,000,000.
Mr. Osborne is here to-night and will see the Governor to-morrow in relation to future investigation of highway matters. This will be their first conference since Mr. Osborne submitted his report and recommended certain changes, some of which were termed a "dream" by the Governor. A point of great interest to both Mr. Osborne and his assistant, Arthur T. Warner, what their compensation shall be, probably will be discussed.
