us, that they would give our wishes
their loyal support, and from that we
are able to learn since, they have done
so, and better communication upon
the river between Oregon City and
points upon the river both to the
North and South we trust will be the
result of their assistance.
In natters of railroads, electric
lines already built and nroiected we
have had some meetings and much I
investigation, with the result that we
believe that prospects are brighter
than ever before that our county will
soon have new lines constructed and
in operation, that will open up terri
tory now isolated and will do much to
make us the County of Oregon.
The committee on Transportation
has had many matters before It In
connection with accommodations for
passengers traveling upon the trains
passing through Oregon City and
largely through Its efforts was the
Southern Pacific Railroad Company
Induced to rescind their order refus
ing to stop their local train to Silver
ton at Oregon City. The question of
rates for passenger travel . upon the
electric cars between Oregon City and
Portland and Oregon City and the
stations between here and Portland
is now being considered and will In
the near future be taken up by a joint
Oregon City Commission Co.

ELEVENTH and MAIN STS. OREGON CITY, OREGON
committee of this Club, the City Coun
cil of Oregon City and the Oregon
City Improvement Club.
Largely through the earnest, con
scientious work of a committee of this
Club was brought about a reduction in
the Insurance Rating In this c'ty.which
will result In the saving to the mer
chants, business men and property
owners of many thousands of dollars
Many other matters of almost equal
Importance to these have been taken
up by our officers, some of which were
attended with successful results, and
many nwre are In the hands of com-
mittees, but with the details of which
I will not impose upon your patience '
at this time In reciting to you. '
Shortly after the organization of
the Club, the matter of publishing and !
presenting to the whole country the
many natural advantages of our city '
and county was taken up. and finding
an overwhelming sentiment that we i
should undertake this work, a Public-1
ity Committee was appointed to take j
charge of the work, and an advisory .
committee of subscribers to a public- j
Itv fund was selected and entered nt 1
on this work: as shown bv the report .
of the Secretary of that' Committee.
great success attended the efforts of '
the Committee and the largest Boost
er Fund known to Clackamas County
has been collected and the Committee
has worked diligently and well In
sendine out Information regarding our
resources and what we have to offer j

to those who will come and take up
their homes with us. As much of this
Is missionary work, wo cannot for
some time realize the benefits and be
able to note the results of this work,
which Is being conducted so faithfully
and well by our committer.
From personal observation and the
sentiments 1 have heard expressed In
this community during the last few
months, It would seem to me that the
Commercial Club would be following
out the object of Its Institution If It
would foster and endemor to bring
about some of the following recom
mendations: Klrst. Work tlrst, last av.d all the
time for the Improvement by the
National government of the Willam
ette Kiver at the Clackamas Kaplds:
for ihe construction by the National
lloverntnout of a good and modern
system of IavKs on the Kast side of
the Willamette Kulls; and for the
proper recognition of Oregon City by
the National iiovernment by electing
a suitable building for our lVstolhYo
and other otllces of the V. S iiovern
ment, such as headquarters for hatch
ery officials, etc.
Second. Work with any person,
firm or corporation that will construct
maintain and operate systems of elec
tric or other transportation lines that
will open up the resources of the
I Third. Work for equitable ratings
upon the electric line between here
and Portland, so that said company
I will not discriminate against Oregon
City, but will give commutation rates,
between Oregon City and all stations,
upon the same terms as It grants them
from Portland to said stations.
Fourth. Work to create a fellow
ship between the people and mer
chants of Oregon City and our good
neighbors residing In this county to
the north of us and co-operate with
them not only In securing equitable
j rates upon the cars, but also to build
roads, and construct bridges across
the Clackamas Kiver. that will short
en the distance between them and
Oregon City to the minimum,
j Fifth. Take up with the Corpora-
lions and manufacturing establish
I moms the matter of our opposition to
the introduction into our midst of an
undestreable class of laborers, that
! have no desire to officiate with us and
I become enterprising citizens, who
j will not assist In the building of
! homes or the development of our
; country, and see if by co-operation
we cannot assist the corporations In
securing the services of good men and
citlens, who with pride in self, and
In city and love of country, will not
only give them faithful service, but
also assist in the building up of a com
: munity that will attract to ns the
' most intelligent and progressive class
Sixth. Each and every one do what
they can to enlarge our manufactur
ing Industries and bring to our midst
good citizens and new projects.
Seventh. To do what can be done
In the matter of promotion of public
sentiment In civic improvement, to
the end that we may have In the near
future a system of well Improved
streets, attru'ctlve parks and beautiful
Eighth. To foster and promote ev
erything that will tend to nsslst our
manufacturers, merchants and people
in the taking advantage of natural ad
vantages of our location. In the se
curing of lowest rates for freight
charges, transportation, etc., made
the Willamette River,
second only in Importance to the
great Columbia and which now at
Oregon City needs development by
the construction of public docks anil
streets leading to same, and which
should by all meuns be constructed
In the Immediate future.
In conclusion, I want to state that
