It Is altogether unlikely that there
will be an Assembly held In Clack

Is probably true that there Is some
demand for It. but the majority of
the farmers and practically all of the
members of the Grange are against It.

This Increase Is expected to continue
for the net few years until the point
Is reached where only mature timber

politics who favor the Assembly plan,

Broadly, this may be construed to
mean that many candidates for office
are at heart Assembly men. but they
fear the result of a declaration In

Oregon ranks seventh among all
the states In railroad building during

the loading railroad publications of
the country and show that the Heaver

cal reason that they believe the ma- tral Orogon ls detailed and develop-

mas County are against It. It is, all
around, an unpleasant situation, but
at least a free-for-all fight within
the party will be averted If no action
is taken looking toward a county
But the participation of the Clack
amas County Republicans in a State
Assembly Is an entirely different mat
ter. It may be said with absolute
certainty that a State Assembly will
be held. We may differ about the
wisdom of such action, but that is
neither here nor there, and we must
face the situation as it is. Republi
cans from all over the State are go
ing to get together at Portland and
recommend men for State and Dis
trict offices. These recommendations
will have some weight In the Repub
lican party. It is within the range
of possibility that the men who are
favored with the recommendation of
the Assembly will be nominated at
the primary. The proposition there
fore, resolves Itself Into the general
one that the Republicans of Clacka
mas County will be given an oppor
tunity to help name the men who
may eventually become officers of
the State of Oregon, or they may ig
nore the Assembly and stay at home
and go without recognition in the
councils of the Republican party of
the State. The Enterprise has recog
nized the feeling among the Repub
licans of Clackamas County, and
wants to be perfectly fair, but it
feels it a duty to outline the true sit

THE ANNEXATION BOOM.
Certain spirits living on the North
ern side of the Clackamas River are
engineering a project to split from
the parent stem all the territory North
of that stream and annex it to Mult
nomah County. It has not been stat
ed whether Multnomah Is willing, foT
the reason assigned is better roads
and this means money to the tax
payers of Multnomah County. The
untiring Industry of B. Lee Paget,
the Portland banker, is seen foremost
In the scheme, which will probably
have quite a large following. W. E.
Thresher, attorney and editor, who
Is new to us, Is prominent in the ad
vocacy of the annexation plan and
his editorial column emits the fol
lowing: There will be weeping and walling
and gnashing of teeth among certain
politicians living not more than 100
miles from the county seat if they
shall lose the Immense valuations ly
ing north of the Clackamas river.
There would be quite diminution of
receipts from taxes In Clackamas
Brother Thresher may be right,
but we doubt !t. The boosters of the
plan may coent on some formidable
opposition from those- who live else
where than in the section which wants
The Canby Tribune says that an
electric railway is projected from
Canby to Molalla, which will run
through some of the best timber laud
in the state. It will make farm lands
very valuable by furnishing cheap
transportation to products, and as the
timber is cleared off the stumps will
follow and gardens take the place of
the wild. The intention Is to build
the line with local subscriptions.
