Postoffice Name Changed
'Hoff postoffice will hereafter be
known as Beaver Creek..' There has
been a movement on loot several years
to have the name changed to corre
spond with the name of the railway
station. The office was established in
1916 and was given the name of the
first postmaster, J. R. Hoff. The office
serves a thickly settled territory, in
cluding one rural route with 150 boxes.
Lighting Bridge Heavy Item
The cost of lighting the new bridge
connecting Oregon City and West I, inn
will be $80 per month. It is -yet a
question whether this expense will be
borne by the, state highway commis
sion, Clackamas county or the munici
palities of Oregon City and West- Linn.
Neither the county nor the municipali
ties have included items for this ex
pense in their respective budgets..
With one hold-up already staged on
the bridge, the necessity of keeping
the structure lighted is apparent.
