Brownell on Expansion.
State House, Saklm, Jan. 18, '99.
Editob Coubieb-Hkrald: I under
stand that there is a movement to amend
the Oregon City charter at this session
cf the legislature, 1 am a' ho advised
that it is the purpose to annex what is
known as West Oregon City or the
Westside. I am aware that the Pulp
mills and Elec rlc company pav one-
eighth of all the taxes in Clackamas
If the Westside is taken in and be
comes a part o( Oregon Oily it would
divert 60 per cent, ol this one-eight of
Clackamas county taxes paid by these
mills from use upon our county roads in
the countty precincts and place this
large sum of money In Oregon City, to
the great injury and detriment of our
country poeple who need this money to
make and repair our county roads and
bridge. I certainly think it would be
bad policy and an actual wrong towards
our country tax payers and fellow citi
zens to take this volume of money away
from our country roads. I am there,
fore constrained to say that unless this
provision relative' to the city retaining
60 per cent, of the road fund tax is
stricken out and given back to the coun
try precincts, it will probably not go
through this session of the legislature.
Please kindly publish this as I wish as
one of the peoples representatives, that
there should be no doubt about my po
sition on this very important matter.
Sincerely your friend,
Geo. C. Brownell.
SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING.
Expansion was Struck With a
a Hard Frost.
Expansion of more territory to be in
cluded in the municipal limits of Ore
gon City, received its death blow at the
special meeting of the city council held
Monday night. The majority of the
councilmen were in favor of the amend
ment to the charter, but they were
afraid that (he paper mills and the
Portland General Electric Company
would send up a lobby to Salem to de
feat the measure.
The charter committee did not make
any report on the amendment relative
to expansion, but simply referred the
back for discussion. A petition was
read from Canemah asking to be an.
nexed to the municipal corporation of
Oregon City. A remonstrance against
the annexation of West Oregon City
was also presented, signed by the rep
resentatives of the Willamette Pulp &
Paper Company, Crown Paper Com
pany, Portland General Electric Com
pany and several taxpayers. The mat
ter was now open for discussion, and
Mayor Latourette called President
Koerner to the chair while he dicussed
the merits of annexation. He thought
the mills on the West Side should not
object to paying a small tax considering
the benefits that they receive from the
municipality of Oregon City. Nine
tenths of their employes reside within
the corporate limits of Oregon City,
and receive the benefit of its privileges.
Ex-Mayor Straight next addressed
the council, and made some solid argu
ments in favor of extension of territory,
and thought the mills should not ob
ject to paying their share of expenses,
when they are receiving all the bene
fits of municipal incorporation, lie
said that if we waited until the manu
facturing interests of the West Side
consented to come in, we would proba
blv have to wait a hundred veara.
Ex-Mayor Caufield was against ex
tending the city limits, and thought it
poor business policy to tax tho mills,
when they had been, in a great meas
ure, responsible for the growth and
prosperity 0i the city ,
J. E. Hedges spoke against taking in
Canemah, and 0. G. Fields presented
artruments in its favor.
The vote for this amendment stood 5
to 3 against taking in Cane man, and
