BOARD OF TRADE.
A Good and Interent&l Attendance
at the Melting Friday Night.
President H. E. Cross made a happy
hit, at an opportune time, when kg;
called Hih board of trade in special ses-v
49 on Friday night. It h'ld been many
moons since this body of representative
citizenp had held a meeting. In fact, it
had been so long that some of them had
forgotten that they held membership in
the institution. Secretary Loder was
al)sei,t, but George T. Howard tilled the
position pro tern. The foil jwing report
of the road committee showed that this
representative body had accomplished
effective work during the past year, al
though, but few meetings had been held,
Oregon Oity. April 12 We, your com
mit tee, heretofore appointed to raiso neo
esaaiy funds ami co-opente with the
county of Clackamas and the citizens of
Logan and Eagle Creek in the construc
tion of a road from the lower Clacka
mas bridge to Logan and to Burhardt's
mill, would rtspecfully report as fol
lows: That we succeeded in raising by
popular suhtcription and by the help of
the citv council of Oregon Uhy the sum
ol f2600. The citizens of Logan raieed
by Mibeci iption also a little over $2600,
and the citizens of Eagle Creek and vi
cinity raised about $10110. To these seV'
eral sums the cuunty court made an ap
propiiation of an equal amount, making
altogether a fund ot about $12,000 to ap
ply on the road proposition in hand.
The county took entire charue of the
work and employed W. H, Counsell as
superintendent of the road improve
ment reaching from the lower Clacka
mas bridge to the hatchery. Practi
cally the entire roadbed was widened
out and reiraded and covered with a
heavy coaiiugof gravel. This road was
completed last fall in a lirst class shape,
and we believe will remain a monument
to the enterprii-e and energy of the busi
ness men of the city, who contributed so
Morally to ite construction, for many
years d conie. The people of Loyan
did not have time to complete their
toad improvement last yei r and ssera
compelled to leave a gap about a nrln
vvliie without rnk or gravel. The funds,
however, are on hand and the "oad will
be completed early this season. When
done there will be a modern road all the
way Irom Oregon City to J. M. Tracy's,
a distance of over 12 milts. We can
also repuit that with the money sub
scribed by the Eagle Creek people the
cotintv completed two miles of the worst
part of the road from the hatchery to
Ihirghardt's mill v e trus-t that the
people in that section of the county
will see the early necessity of raising
the additional amount of money and
completing the improvement undertaken
by the business men of Oregon City and
its complete mcuess is a matter ofcin-.
gratulation to all those whoso heartily"
co-operated in it. We would also state
for the information of the bo ird that
the citizens of Bpringwater have already
raised by subscription over $2500 to ex
tend the road from Tracy's to that im
portant section of the county. In con
clusion we would recommend that the
board undertake the, improvement of
another main thoroughfare leading out
of Oregon City for the coming season's

VV. A. Huntley.
President Cross called attention to
the fact that there waa now an oppor
tunity to secure a cheese factory at Ore
gon City without cost or -price. H. C.
Campbell, of the Portland Suburban
Railway Company, was here during the
week, and staled that a frien I of his, a
practical cheese maker in Wisconsin,
desired a suitable location for a factory.
Mr. Campbell thought Oregon City
would suit him, and all the guarantee
that the cheese maker wanted was that
he could be assured of receiving the
milk from 150 cows for one eor. After
considera le favorable discussion, the
president appointed G. W. Church, J.
W. Grout and George T. Howard a com
mittee to secure guarantees of milk.
The mattei of iinp'oving a road lead
ing to Oregon City this year provoked
considerable discussion. The majority
of the members present favored improv
ing the Abernetby or Viola road, mak
ing a connection with the Hpiingwmer
road. E. E. thartnan wanted the Law
ton road built over the hill from Oregon
City. Finally Judge Kjan's motion to
refer the matter to the road committee
carried. The following new rond com
mittee was appointed: CO. T. Wil
liams, J. T. Apperson, D. 0. Latourette,
Frank Bunch, T. F Ryan.
The board adjourned to meet two
weeks from last Friday night, when
other important matters will be con
sidered. The lir-it meeting of the board
for the present year was an auspicious
one, and no doubt Horn i effective work
w ill he accomplished before the summer
