V Committee Aiiiinlnted to OrgmiUt'
the Kiitorprlie Report f
the First Cuiiiialttce.
At the regular monthly niwting of the
hoard ol trade last Monday hight a small
amount of routine huslnesa was tiaiixac-
ted. Bills amounting to 1134 were
ordered paid. Letters from Senators
Dolph and Mitchell and Representative
Hermann acknowledging the receipt of
the Willamette Improvement retvin
meiidatioiia were read. E. M. Hands
reported that the Portland chamler of
commerce had endorsed Oiegon City's
recommendations in lespect to the river
improvement. The special committee
appointed to examine into and report
on the feasibility ol organising a county
fair made the following report:
To TIIK HoNOHAIII.K ItoAHl) Ot TuADK,
Okkion City, Ohkiion :
We, votir committee, heretofore at
poinleti to examine into the practicabil
ity and advisability ol attempting to es
tablish a county ' fair in Clackamas
county beg leave to report as lullowi:
That we have carefully examined into
the matter and canvassed the subject
(rotii all available 8tandHinta and sub
mit the following as our conclusions:
First, It is desirable to have a county
fair in this county, run in a tirst-elass
business way. Any argument that we
might make to show the UnWlcial re
sults that would How (mm such an or
gamxalion would be superfluous and un
necessary. All public spirited citiiens
ol Clackamas county have for many
vcars advocated a county fair, but no
one has so far been willing to undertake
the large amount ol work nevsary in
canvassing the county lor tuhscriplion
to the capital stock and lu doing the
preliminary work incident thereto. A
mir properly conducted would bcnctlt in
a practical tiselnl way every fanner anil
property owner in tl e county. It would
lead to' letter and more economical
methods iu farming. The spirit of emu
lation, the honest st life for premiums,
the desire to excel would certainly he
fruitful of good results. Generally
speaking our county has a poor grade ol
horses and cattle. Our sheep and swine
to say the very least could lie wonder
fully'heneMtted. In horticulture we ate
not doing anything to xak ol, and Ibis
in the best fruit county in the state. We
honestly N-heve there are possibilities in
1 1 o fruit industry in Clackamas county
hevond the most sanguine expectation
of any one. A great gathering
of the fanners and their families and
a commingling together and interchange
ot ideas is a imitict of no small moment.
Scund With wise, caieful manage
ment we se no reason whv a county
fair should not Ik Iroin the start, not
only sell supiHirling, hut he made In pay
a fair rate of interest on the investment.
Uur proximity to IWiltml and all rail
road and steaiiiho.it lims would l a
jliuiautee of good attendance and finan
cial auprt. The lauds necessary lor
the grounds can now be purchased
clieacr and are sure to enliauee in
value from year to year.
Third. II the board deems it w ise to
lend Its aid to the estahlisliiii).'
of a county fair we w ould a' I vise Unit a
committee of at le.it five be apisiintcd
to organize a corporation w ith a rtpitul
stock of JO. 000 Willi shares ol fJ5 e-u-h
and with iiislrintioi.s to open stock
hooka and make a thorough canvass for
suh-criplions to the capital stork of the
corporation and do all things necessary
to he done in its organization. We li ml
that suitable land can la purchased t
from $150 to f.'iKI per acre, ami that it
would require from sixtv to eighty acres
for the ptirjKjse. J. T. Acckhson,
