Commercial Club will be elected next
Saturday night at the; annual meet
ing of the members. Much Interest
Is being taken In the forthcoming elec
tion for a groat deal depends on the
personnel of th club's officers tor
the second year of Its tence. There
Is some talk of re-electing Judge
Thomas F. Ryan to the presidency of
the organization. Judge Ryan has
boon the president during the first
year of the club and there are mem
bers who feel that he should be re
warded with a second term, after
bringing the organization through the
worst period. There are others, how
ever, who feel that the honor should
be passed around and J. E. Hedges
and T. P. Randall are talked of for
the presidency. The by-laws provide
thnt the members elect the Hoard of
Governors and those gentlemen elect
the officers. No one has been sug
gested for secretary to succeed W. A.
Showman. Treasurer M. f. Latour-
etto has mado such a splendid record
thut he will unquestionably be reelect
ed If he wants the plnce.
There will be nn Informal banquet
In connection with the annual meeting
The regular business meeting of the
Hoard of Governors of the club was
was held Monday night, at which
time tho board was waited on by
representative of the Street Improve
ment Club, J. A. Ronke. Ways and
means for lowering the streetcer fare
from this city to Portland was talked
over, and It was the sense of the meet-
Ing thnt a 15 cent fare, with 25 cent
round trip tickets, was sufficient
charges to be made, and a motion wns
passed appointing President Ryan as
chairman of a joint committee of one
representative from ench of the civic
organizations of the city to look Into
the rate question. On a second motion
the committee wns empowered to
meet with the Portland Railway Light
& Power Company and demand a 15
cent fare or 12 cont commutation
fare. The following cammlttee was

BOY8 RECEIVE WARM WELCOME
AT GOVERNMENT CAMP
Raymond and Wallace Cauflolil, of
this city, and Tom Word, Jr., of Port
land, have returned from their trip
to Government Camp, reporting hav
ing had a most delightful trip. The
young men left this city on Tuesday
of last week and arrived at Rododen
dron Tavern on Tuesday afternoon,
taking the stage at Sandy as far as
Welches, making the remainder of
the trip by foot. They remained for
the night at Rododendron until the
following morning. At this resort
they secured skis to make the trip to
Yocum's, Government Camp, but as
there was a scarcity of snow at this
point they did not make use of the
skis until they reached the Twin
Bridges, about five miles from the
tavern. Here they found plenty of
snow, and made the trip In good time,
reaching Government Camp early In
the afternoon and found three feet of
snow. To say that the Yocums were
not agreeably surprised, does not ex
press It, for this was the first party
that had made the trip by ski this
winter, Bnd the boys received a royal
Thursday a severe snow storm was
experienced, but did not prevent the
travelers from enjoying many miles
of ski riding. Before returning to
Rododendron Tavern the party went
by ski to the timber line of Mount
Hood, where the snow was over eight
feet deep. Many tracks of the coyote
and cougar were visible.
The party was accompanied on the
trip to the mountain by the old guide,
O. C. Yocum, although along In years
the old mountaineer enjoyed the trip
as well as the boys.
The homeward Journey was made
on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Mr.
Yocum going as far as Mosquito
Creek with the boys. At Rododen

The schools of this county used ftI4,
316 during 1909, but will require for
this year the sum of f69.300. The levy
for general county purposes last year
was faO.OOO. There being in the

treasury this year, only fl6,000 is
required to be raised by tax.
During the past year much perma

several rock roads have been con

judge and commissioners has been to
turn back Into that road district all
tax money raised in that district, and
many of the communities have raised
a special road tax. During the pres

There is no disguising he existence
of a well grounded intention among
several prominent residents of Clack
amas County to bring about the an
nexation to Multnomah County of all
that territory lying north of the Clack
amas River and now located within .
the boundaries of Clackamas'County.
The proposition was sprung last
Thursday night at a Joint meeting of
the Oak Grove Improvement Olub.
the Milwaukle Commercial Club and
the Gladstone Improvement Club. This
meeting was held at Oak Grove at the
Instance of some of the members of
head and front of the movement is
B. Lee Paget, secretary of the Port
land Trust Company. Mr. Paget has
for several yeara made his home at
Oak Grove. He would like to accom
plish the scheme above outlined and
another plan dear to hla heart Is to
make Clackamas County dry, and also
Multnomah County and the rest of
the State for that matter.
The Prohibition question, however,
does not enter materially Into Mr.
Paget's latest plan to divide Clack
amas County. He hag enlisted in sup
port of the movement W. E. Thresher,
editor of the Milwaukle New and
an attorney of that town. Mr. Thresh

The general argument for the an
exation of Northern Clackamas Coun
ty to Multnomah is found in the as
sertion that the taxes in Multnomah
County are lower than in Clackamas
and that the county roads of Multno
mah are by far the best. If these
two statements can be substantiated
It follows that hundreds of residents
of Northern Clackamas will give their

hut this Is not a reasonable Idea at
this time on account of the sparsely
settled condition of that section of the
county and the comoaratlvely small
value of taxable pronerty. It Is nos
slble. however, that these Deonle would
siinnort the movement to join Mult
nomah. If the division should be made Ore
gon City would be in the peculiar
condition of being a couty seat at the
extreme northern end of the county,
and It may be expected that a great
deal of antagonism will come from
this immediate section against the
measure. Just what chances there
would be in securing the annexation
is not easy to say. If the people of
Multnomah County are in favor of the
scheme it would go a long way toward
its success. It' is supposed, however,
that if the plan goes to a vote next
November that every voter in the
whole State will have a chance to ex
press an opinion, as In the creation
of Hood County in June, 1908.
Members of the Portland Automo
bile Club and owners of motor cars
at Portland will probably welcome
the proposal, as it may assure better
roads running into the Mount Hood
district. No active campaigning has
yet been done, but another meeting
Of the promotion clubs of Oak Grove,
Milwaukle and Gladstone will soon be
held, when it is likely that definite
steps will be taken to formulate some
olan to bring the whole plan direct
ly before the people Interested.
Among those who took part in the
Oak Grove meeting were:
Mayor Streib, of Milwaukie, B. Lee
Paget, of Oak Grove; Mr. Busch, of '
Gladstone, Violin Solo. Mrs. Estella
Salsbury, of Gladstone, president of
the XL Club, speech; male quartet, of

A motion was passed fixing another
public meeting at the same place the
first Thursday in February, when the
same subject will be discussed In
earnest, and ways and means devised
by which the1 Initiative step can be
taken to annex all that portion of
Clackamas County lying north of the
