Get a Copy of Souvenir Programme

OREGON CITY, Or.. June 17. (Edl
tor of tho Enterprise.) I wonder
whether all your readers have recelv
ed copies of the 8ouvenlr programme
for next month's session of our Chau
tauqua Association. If any have fail
ed to do so, I want to do them a ser
vice by calling their attention to it and
suggesting that they should get copies
and see for themselves how many un
usually good things are offered them
at this year's session. As one who
knows, something about our most
prominent lecturers and entertainers,
I want to say that this year's pro
gramme for our Willamette VaJley
Chautauqua Is the best that has been
presented since I came back to Ore
gon nearly five years ago, and during
that time we have certainly had some
excellent ones. This one, beginning
July 7th, is splendid. Nobody can af
ford to miss It None will want to
If they know what is offered them.
Surely with a recordbrealing program
there should be such a record-break-attendance
that no deficit will have
to be reckoned with by the manage
ment as sometimes heretofore. This
is a Clackamas County Institution;
let us boost It.

a consolidated High School for Ore
gon City, ML Pleasant, the West Side,

ture of Mt. Pleasant." He said it

they would and then set forth some
of the work that the club would carry

Bert Clark told of what the club

this section of the country are to be
commended for their public spirit and
the enterprise and refinement which
is characteristic of that section.
Ernest Matthies, who has been In
the saloon business for many years,
may lose his license If the allegations
and affidavit of Mrs. Rose Nehren are
sustained. Mrs. Nehren, has through
her attorneys, U'Ren & Schuebel, filed
an affidavit with the city recorder,
asking that the license of Matthies
be revoked, stating that he baa vio
lated the city ordinance in selling In
toxicants to her husband, while he
was under the Influence of liquor. She
has also sued Matthies for $5000 dam
ages, because he ejecte'her from his
place when she went In after her hus
band, Peter Nehren, janitor of the
Section 6 of the municipal ordinance
regulating the sale of liquor provides
that saloon men shall not sell or give
any Intoxicating liquors to any person.
whose immediate family haa given-
him, or them, written notice to re
frain from so doing, and Mrs. Nehren
says that on October 11, 1906, she
notified every saloonkeeper In Ore
gon City, in writing, not to sell her
husband liquor, alleging that he had
become a habitual drunkard. A copy
of the notice is embraced in her com
plaint. She avers that Matthies has
repatedly given her husband liquor,
which has caused him to be In a
state of intoxication for days at a
time, and that June 4, 1908, she saw
Nehren in the place and went In af
ter him, when Matthies, without warn
ing or request to leave the premises,
grabbed her from behind and violently
struck her in the back, and forcibly
threw her against the door casing,
calling her vile names, and bruising
her arm and shoulder until they were
black and blue, and making blue spots
on her back, which caused her great
mental and bodily pain and suffered
her damage to the extent of $5000.
Mrs. Nehren says her husband has
not given her to exceed $20 In cash
during the last five years, although
he has paid the grocery bill and house
rent, but has squandered his income
In Matthies' saloon. She has repeat
edly seen Matthies employes sell
liquor to Nehren, and she presented
the matter to the city attorney who
told her she was not an immediate
member of Nehren's family and de
clined to make out a complaint against
Matthies, though she is Nehren's law
ful wife and they have not been di
vorced or separated. She says that to
the best of her knowledge the other
saloon In Oregon City have complied
with her request in refusing to sell
liquor to her husband.
The action of Mrs. Nehren has
aroused considerable Interest, as the
council only a few weeks ago revoked
the license of Roy Stewart, who oper
ates a saloon on the corner of Main
and Fourth streets.
