Official Paper of City of Oregon City
For the farmer it has demanded the square deal'and
to his especial interests it has devoted each week nearly
a page of its space; and to the farm bureau, grange, and
other progressive, helpful organizations it has .given en
couragement and commendation for all constructive efforts.
And in keeping with the spirit of the season we have
mad New Year resolutions among them the publication
of; brief comprehensive market reports; a resume' of the
most important court actions; and a list of real estate
transfers in this county each week.
Among resolutions renewed is a persistent demand for
everything that will increase the prestige and the glory
of Clackamas county and Oregon state.
THE BANNER-COURIER JUSTIFIED
The Banner-Courier's declaration that the laws of
Oregon City can be enforced by her officers when all
stand together in a determined effort to enforce them has
been justified. It required simply an order from the
Mayor supported by only a majority of the council, after
declaring their determination to "Clean up" the city, to
close the poolrooms over Sunday tighter than the prover
bial miser's pocketbook. And now the Banner-Courier
makes this further statement that with the same effort
and courage the council, city attorney and mayor now
show, the city will be a far cleaner and better place in
which to live than it has been for many "moons."
There are, of course, those who will question the jus
tice of closing all these places in order to prevent a part
of them onlv from running in an objectionable manner.
The council should, however, be credited with the desire
to completely remove objectionable features from the en
tire number of places in operation and having acted in
the closinsr of all upon the belief that the means justifies
the end. With the closing there was a notable lack of
' street loafing common to other Sundays.
Genuine commendation is due the council for its
stand at the Friday last meeting in regard to law enforce
ment general. It is the first duty of parents to see that
boys and girls are at home or properly chaperoned at
night and the proposition to take into police custody
those who are loitering on the streets without visible
business or destiny whether young or old, should awaken
parents to their responsibilities, lessen juvenile crimes;
and also to put a crimp in the activities of moonshine,
bootleg spotters and pimps who now infest the city in
furthering the booze traffic.
The pool room windows should be unobstructed, and
the council granted authority to revoke licenses for dis
obedience to the city's regulations. Law enforcement
should work no hardship on the pool rooms or other
places engaged in legitimate business. And when all shall
obey the regulations their business will increase and pub
lie approval will more generally follow.
With the same sincerity of purpose with which the
Banner-Courier condemned the council and its officers
for their attitude toward the law enforcement last week
it commends them in this issue for their efofrts to en
force the ciity's laws and regulations.
NEW JOURNALISTIC VENTURE
The spring of 1922 promises, according to govern'
ment reports, the biggest road building boom this coun
try has ever exepnenced. With more than a billion dol-
ars provided and $75,000,000 available for the coming
year it is predicted that new impetus will be given to la-
.ior through this building program.
Ihe furnishing of materials will require thousands
ot men, the work 61 preparing and laying the road bed
will require thousands more all of which will put into cir
culation millions of dollarrs which should stimulate all
ines of business and industry of the countrv.
The roads, wherever built, will decrease along the
ines the cost of transportation and even of trunk lines
only, will make it possible to build more market roads
than it would be possible to build without this govern
ment am. Ana too, it is an absolute obligation on the
part of the nation to aid in this and in every other wav
to reduce the cost of transportation to the farmers and
This week there is launched in Clackamas county a
new weeklv periodical.
The incorporators are J. D. Brown of the Farmers'
Union, H. H. Stallard for several months past the organ
izer of the Non-partisan League in Clackamas county and
its editor, M. J. Brown, who for the year past has been
one of the editors of the Banner-Courier and formerly
editor of the Oregon City Courier.
It will be published at the Banner-Courier printing
plant. It is not, however, connected with or a part of
the Banner-Courier. The name, The Producers Call, is
suggestive of its policies and purposes.
The Banner-Courier recognizes the right of this and
all other competitors to genuine good will; congratulates
her upon her attractiveness and wishes her success in her
every effort toward improvements political, moral and in
dustrial in her chosen field.
NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS
The Banner-Courier ever since its establishment has
furnjshed open columns of space for the discussion by any
one ot every problem of mterest to all classes of people
It has been persistent m its demands for a square dea
for trie farmer, for those engaged in industry of all kinds
and tor the business man also.
It has condemned unsparingly unfair practices com
mercial, financial or political. In politics it has maintain
ed strict independence while its columns have been open
and tree to advocates of every political creed or belief.

arge element of taxpayers present themselves support
ed. The obiection to non-taxpayers voting taxes was re-
ersed on this occasion. The slogan was "cut off" not
Discord stirred up at these meetings may equal the
good which comes out of them it is admitted. But is is
qually true that here is an occasion where the temper of
the less conservative element is given expression and the
entiment of the entire citizenship becomes better known
and felt. -
The suggestion that the budget meeting should con-
ist of representatives only from the various county units
is frequent. This is a revolt against the exercise of the
ull and complete democracy which"' characterized the
early period of our nation's history, and it is regrettable
hat any public forum should be so conducted that such a
suggestion should gain ground. -
A considerable saving in taxes was made at the meet-
rig and let us hope that the departments affected by this
saving will find a way to still serve the county efficiently.
it trie savings result m miury to the county, socially, ed
ucationally or financially, next year will find the voters
ager and able to provide more liberally. In the mean
time let us all bear with the verdict and push on for a bet-
er, greater Clackamas county.
At the close of 1921 the Banner-Courier bade good
by to the best year in its history and upon the thresh
hold ot this new year it looks out into the future with
faith in continued progress and improvement.
(Jur patrons, friends and readers who have encour
aged our efforts we wish a most Happy, prosperous New
Year. . '
THE BUDGET MEETING
With the passing of the counts budget meeting there
are the usual disapppointments and regrets. Much crit
icism has been directed toward those who attempted to
cut off from the estimates. The criticism is not so much
of the cutting process as it is of - the ruthlessness with
which it was done. And this criticism is due not so
much a pruning of some of the items which could stand
pruning but that the said pruning should have been done
with reference to the needs of the departments as a
whole affected by the cuts. For single example, it is point
ed out that the county club leader is essential to the sue
cess of the local fair and to Clackamas bounty's part in
the state fair and yet the estimate for the leader was
eliminated while at the same time the sum for the support
oi tne iair was allowed unanimously.
Ihe fact that a committee from the citizenshk) o:
Clackamas county had, with the county court, and com
missioners, investigated the needs of the county and un
en such investigation had based their recommendations
of the estimates presented to the voters did not annear
to influence those most persistent in their demands for
cuts. Another thing which was difficult to reconcile with
the payment of taxes for progress occurred in the effor
ONE INVESTMENT THAT
IS STILL WORTH
ONE HUNERED CENTS
ON THE DOLLAR
In these days of falling" values, there
is one class of investments that are still
worth one hundred cents on the dollar,
are convertible into cash instantly,' and
are still paving their usual dividends.
They are savings accounts in this insti
tution. Adversity is a splendid teacher
of thrift. The wise will not fail to learn
the lessons it teaches. Its text book is
a savings pass book and it draws four
per cent interest.
