There is a strong probability that Ore
gon City will this year be represented on
tbe gridiron by a formidable football ag
gregation. The revival of tbe interest in
baseball circles also demands the re-organization
of a football eleven among
the lovers of athletic sports in this city.
Oregon City for a number of years sup
ported a strong team and there is avail
able material for the forming of a team
of increased strength this season.
Among tbe available players and en
thusiasts in this sphere of athletics are :
J. W. Church. Wm. Koerner, Howard
week in search of evidence for bis de-
! fense of the charge of burglary that has
been filed against him in the courts at
Hillsboro. He claims that he visited
tbe Oregon City Land OlBce early on the
morning following tbe burglary at the
Warren residence near HiiieDoro and
the purpose of his visit to this city was
to establish that fact. The officials at
the land office, while they are satisfied
tbe reverend gentleman visited that de
partment about tbe time that be claims
be did, are not willing to make oath to
that effect. The only value evidence of
Rev. Kennedy's visit to this city at that
time will be in bis defense of the charge
will be to establish tbe fact that on the
morning following the burglary with
which be is charged, that be went about
his business as usual and showed no
signs of dissipation tbe night before.
Rev. Kennedy and nis attorneys are con
fident in tbe belief that be will be cleared
of tbe charge of burglary.
