teresting, but far more so after tne
votes are counted than before. A few
days prior to the county election Rev.
John M. Linden, pastor of the First
Baptist Church of this city made an
estimate on the probable vote for and
against Prohibition. Mr. Linden fa
vored Prohibition with all his heart
and did more to make Clackamas
County dry than any other one man.
The Enterprise, as a bit of interesting
news, is giving his estimate, along
with the actual tabulated votes. Mr.
Linden figured that the county would
go dry oy as votes, with 2856 for a
dry county and 2561 for a wet com
munity. The vote was 2606 for wet,
while the dry people obtained 2437, a
majority of 169.
LOOKING INTO FUTURE
PLAN FOR DRY STATE IN 1910
ARE ALREADY ARRANGING
It is planned to put the prohibition
question up to the voters of the en
tire State of Oregon in November,
Twenty-two counties of the state
are now dry, besides a number of pre
cincts in other counties where a vote
was secured on the prohibition ques
tion by petition, the wets carried.
These counties were: Clackamas,
Coos, Harney, Lake, Marion, Wasco
and Washington. In Coos and Clacka
mas counties the wets carried by ma
jorities of 38 and 169 respectively. Only
small majorities for tne saloon inter
est were noted In Lake and Harney
counties as well.
The saloon interests jllea petitions
in seven counties, placing the ques
tion on the ballot. These counties
were: Lincoln, Lane, Linn, Sherman,
Tillamook, Wallowa and Yamhill.
These counties were voted dry in
1906, along with Benton County. Ap
parently the saloon men thought it
was no use to atempt to carry Ben
ton County, so no vote on the ques
tion was taken there this year. They
lost the vote of every one of the coun
ties which they had hoped to gain; in
fact, the majorities against the liquor
interests increased at this election
COMPLETE HIGH SCHOOL
AFTER REPEATED TRIALS
People of Oregon City Instruct Board of Directors
to Add Eleventh & Twelfth Grades to
the Present Course.

FIRST YEAR OF INSTITUTE.
After repeated trials by the friends lng directors:
vi mguKr eaucation uie establishment
of a complete high school in Oregon
City is at last assured. There was a
time a number of years ago when the
city maintained an eleventh grade to
the course, but this was abolished and
during the last four years Oregon City
has had only the ninth and tenth
grades, while every other town of its
size in the state, and many of them
smaller, has had a four-graded high
school. Scores of young people have
left Oregon City to complete their
high school education In Portland and
elsewhere. Several attempts to se
cure the establishment of a district
high school here have failed, and two
elections to relieve the situation by
starting a county high school have re
sulted in defeat for the friends of the
measure. A plan to unionize the dis
tricts of Oregon City and vicinity for
nigh school purposes was suggested
one year ago, but was defeated by the
outside districts. But Monday night,
at the annual meeting of the taxpay
ers of the city, the following resolu
tion was presented by C. Schuebel
ana adopted with a dissenting voice:
E. P. Carter, three
years; H. E. Cross, two years; Wil
liam LaSalle, one year; Mrs. Estella
Salisbury was re-elected clerk.
H. Peckover, was re-elected a di

"Whereas, the children of Oregon
City are compelled to go to Portland
or other cities to complete their high
school education, and,
Whereas, Oregon City Is one of
the very few towns of its size In this
state that has no complete high
school, therefore be it
"Resolved, Thai we, the taxpayers
of School District No. 62, Clackamas
County, Oregon, hereby instruct the
board of directors of said district to
establish a complete high school in
Oregon City by adding the 11th grade
to the present course at the opening
of the Fall term in 1908, and by ad
ding the 12th grade to the course at
the opening of the Fall term In 1909."
This action was followed by the pas
sage of a resolution authorizing the
directors to borrow money for the pur
pose of completing two additional
rooms in the Eastham building and
to furnish them. While this authoriza
tion shows the sentiment of the peo
ple, it will also be necessary to hold
a special meeting In the very near fu
ture for the purpose of making a bond
issue to defray the expenses of the ad
dition, which cannot be paid out of
the general fund. It is possible that
the directors will ask the taxpayers
to authorize the construction df a
four room addition to the Eastham
building, as the city is growing con
stantly, and while four rooms will not
be needed next Fall, It is certain that
at least two will be required and the
other two could be left In an unfinish
ed condition, bo far as their Interior
Is concerned, unless they become nec
essary. This is the plan that is being
followed at Gladstone, where an 8-room
building Is being erected, the plan be
ing to complete four of the rooms ana

Of the 28 counties in Oregon where
prohibition was at isBue in the elec

now dry are Benton, Crook, Douglas,

noon O. L. Puryear was awarded
$250 by a jury in his suit against the
Milwaukie Country Club for $1000,
which was double the amount Pur

all day 'Friday and a motion for a non
suit was denied after the testimony
of Purvear was in. The case went to
