WRITES TO THE VOTERS
Progressive Ticket Candidate Aakt
Why Oregon City Has Stood
Sitll While Other
Wlth election day only 3 days dis
tant the mayoralty situation baa as
sumed an Interesting aspect and the
contest promises to be the warmest
in many years. Dr. V. E. Carll, who
Is aspiring to a third term, and who
Is opposed by 0. W. Eastham, will
have no small taks to continue 'in
office for his opponent has adopted
vigorous fighting methods. Mr. East
ham haa l.isued the following state
ment to the voters of Oregon City:
Moved by an ambition to be of some
good in a public way in the community
and encouraged by citizens with whom
! have come In, contact, I decided,
some days ago, to get out on the "fir
ing line" where the people of Oregon
City might pass Judgment on my qual
ifications for Mayor of the City.
I am already convinced of my short
comings as a politician. One of my
political blunders seems to have been
in humming, (as I thought, to myself)
while walking down the street, "Every
body works but Father, and he hangs
around all day," and Street Commis
sioner John Green overheard me. It
never occurred to me that forthwith
our Street Commissioner, instead of
standing at his post of duty with his
hands in bis pockets, directing his
crew of one man how to fix the float
ing sidewalks, would be making votes
against me at the rate of six a min
ute, by telling how he and everybody
else in town wouldn't have any Job
If Eastham were elected.
I still believe that as Mayor. I could
accomplish as much in six months as
my old fr.end, the Doctor, will gat
through with in six years.
There are a number of streets in
town that adjoining property owners
stand ready to have improved; money
to pay the City's part is lying idle In
die Treasury. There are Idle men and"
Idle teams ready and willing to go to?
work. The adjoining property own- '
ers pay largely for the Improvement
of streets and it is most probable that
if they had them Improved they would
begin to build nouses. I don't under
stand why six or eight houBes should
go up in a little suburb like Gladstone

"Why Is It that Albany and Eugene
and Corvallis and nearly every other
town in the State has doubled in

ree- orJ"r 7ears- hU we have
stood still and possibly have gone
back a little. Don't you think that
things need a stirring?
I " disposed to take matters of
Interest to the City's welfare quite
seriously. At the Hill Improvement
Club meeting I asked the Mayor why

It at the request of certain indivi
duals who wished to establish an
Elks Lodge here and they had to show
a population ln the City of over 5000
in order to get a charter from the
Sovereign Lodge. The Mayor said
these private Individuals were willing
to pay the expense of the census, but
also admitted on further questioning
that the City had no contract with
them to this effect.
The city records show, as anyone
may see by examining them at City
Recorder Dimick's office, that the cen
sus is ordered taken, and the record
dosen't show that any person or per
sons except the City, Is to pay the bill.
The Mayor didn't seem to think this
matter of any importance but I con
sider it, as far as the principle lnvol-
