ESTACADA, May 19. Edltor of
tho Knterprlne.) I notice that C.
Schuebcl Mtate over hi Rlgnatare In
both tho Oregon City Courier and the
Oregort City EnterprlHe that when he
dlRCURAod the mieHtlon of a county
high Rchool with T. J. Gary, one of
the prenent candidate for County
School Superintendent, that Mr. Gary
eald ho wa oppoaed to tho high
Rchool. Now, I heard Mr. Schuebel
and Mr. Read, of Parkplacc, dlcus
tho high Rchool quwttlon at Entacada.
In hi Rpeech Mr. Bcjinebel Raid that
Mr. Gary had recommended the high
Rchool to him and that he, Gary, wa
heartily In favor of It. Mr. Schuebel
made thl npooch at a later date than
hi alleged interview with Mr. Gary
mentioned In the Rtatement printed
In the paper. If Mr. Gary had told
Mr, Schuebel that he wa oppoed to
tho county high chool, It Reem
Htrango that Mr. Schuebel would have
quoted him a favoring It.
ProfenHor Read alo algned the ar

A GOOD MAN FOR COMMISSIONER.

1807 when he opened a atore and en
gaged In the merchandise buHlneHH un

opposed to the high school. But Pro
fessod Read spoke at the Estacada
meeting along with Mr. Schuebel, and
Professor Read claimed that he and
Mr. Gary were entitled to much of
the'crcdlt for getting the law passed
that provides for establishing a county
high school by the vote of the peo
ple. He said also that he and Mr.
Gary had written letters to members
of the legislature in behalf of the law
and that Mr. Gary was enthusiastical
ly In favor of it. I don't see how Mr.
Schuebel and Mr. Read could attempt
to give out this false impression of
Mr. Gary's position on the subject of
a county high school after those Esta
cada speeches. Any one who attend
ed the Estacada meeting will verify
what I say about the matter.

RAIN SPOILS BASEBALL.
Opening of Canemah Park Is Deferred
Until May 30.
Rain spoiled the prospects for base
ball Sunday and the double-header be
tween the Papermakers and the East
Portland team was not played. The
Canemah Park Grounds were a sea of
mud and the ball players concluded it
would be useless to pull oft the games,
thereby disappointing several hundred
enthusiastic fans who were anticipat
ing a game worth while. .
The opening of Canemah Park Sat
urday was also blocked by the heavy
rains. Notwithstanding the damp
ness nearly 150 people went up to the
Park to spend the afternoon and ev
ening in dancing, but a tree had fallen
across the roof of the pavilion, mak
ln3 a number of small boles and the
floor was wet. The managers were
therefore compelled to call off the
opening, which will be held Saturday,
The postponed baseball game will
be played next Sunday, when the fans
will have an. opportunity to see a

N OVERWHELMING Majority of Oregon's voters
by registration have formally declared that they
believe In the principles of the Republican Par
ty. Let them show that they are honest by vot
ing In accordance with their declarations. The
Oregon election comes before the Republican Na
tional Convention. JLt every Republican in the
Frst Congressional District uphold the honor of
the Republican Party In Oregon and strengthen
the Influence of Oregon's delegation In the Na
tional Convention by voting for H. M. Cake for
United States Senator and W. C. Hawley for Rep
resentative In Congress. If either of these Re
publican nominees fall of election the primary
election system will be discredited and a return of
boss rule will be Invited. The good name of Ore
gon's voters will be smirched and Oregon's dele
gation to the National Convention will be placed
In a humiliating position. For the effect it will
have on the November election it is imperative
that the Republican nominees in the June election
shall be elected by an overwhelming majority. As
a believer in the principles of the Republican
party it is your duty to be at the polls June 1st,
and vote for Cake and Hawley.
