OREGON CITY COURIER, FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1904
S OF THE COUNTY
A petition having 63 signature wai
presented to the countv court asking for
a change in the pnblic road between
Stafford and Oregon City, said change to
coniiitin opjning a new piece of road
between Polifsky's and John Turner's,
the home of the latter being a matter of
a hundred Tarda south of the canvai of-
fice of the wood-c&mp. The road change
would ihorten the distance and would,
it seems, secure the best possible route
with the easiest grade, between the two
points indicated. The proportion of rise
over the entire one ana one-third miles
would not be over seven per cent. The
' county court's official viewers approved
the change, but the court cast a deluge
of cold water on it in this dry time, too
by declaring that the petitioners
should pay the damages assessed and
Open the road a; their own expense.
The petitioners cannot see why the court
should show this negative opposition to
their road scheme, except it be that they
offended it by giving a stiff majority for
the Democratic ticket in Stafford pre
cinct, and, furthermore, by agitating
this road matter without the advice and
consent of prominent Republicans of
Frog Pond. The Stafford people have
been promised $000 of the road funds
thee paid in as taxes, and, as it would
be foolish because unprofitanle to spend
said money this summer in giading old
road beds, they beine hard and nlnddv.
they cannot see any good reasons why it
should not be expended in clearing the
new piece of road. .
On 8aturday, Tualatin Grange No. Ill
held a picnic in Farmers' grove. Its oc
casion was lhe,celebration of Children's
Day, but so large was the attendance of,
grown people that they out-numbered I
the little folk. A stage had been built,
principally of fir boughs, and a number
of long benches built in front of it of
'rough Doards and lops, under the over
hanging limbs of large trees. The ar
rangements were ideal for a long pro
gram of son? and recitation and instru
mental music, the latter being by the
Stafford brass band of 11 pieces. Many
of the renditions were so excellent that
they deserve particular mention but lack
of space forbids. The musical and lit
erary program was followed by three
speakers, Hon. Thomas Buckman of
Coos county, Col. K. A. Miller and Hon.
G.E.Hayes, each making an address
befitting the occasion. As a proper cli

these goods from regular Eastern work, such as
