original Intention of the Commercial

on Saturday, Mnrch 12, but It la Im
possible to arrange the programme
by that date so a postponement was
agreed uKin at a meeting of the chair
men of the several committees. Thla

the thousands of visitors who are ex
pected to come to Oregon City at that
time. Many prominent horsemen will

There Will Be No More Saloonj
Oregon City Until Town Haa
a Population of
There will he no niOTe saloons in
Oregon City until the town has n
population of foitiO nnd every saloon
will hereafter pay nn annual license
of $1000, This was the result of a
special meeting of the city council
Wednesday night. Even- member was
present nnd the vote on the final pas
sage of t)ie ordinance Increasing the
saloon llr'lise from $000 to $1000 was

Shenhnii. Mlrbels. Meyer, Ronke.
No Pope, Cooke.
Attorneys J. E. Hedges and C. T).
I-atourette were present In the Inter
est of the Retail Liquor Dealer's As
sociation nnd they argued that the
nctlon of the council In Increasing
the license would bo hasty nnd that
a committee should be appointed and
a hearing be given to the saloon men.
There were a few rhetorical fireworks
and the ordinance was passed with
only two dissenting votes. Mayor
Carll has attached his signature nnd
ns the ordinance carries the emergen
cy clause It goes into effect at once.
Tho council passed to Its second
rending nn ordinance providing thnt
the number of saloons shall not be
increased until a rntlo of one snloon
to every 500 Inhabitants ran be main
tained. With 17 p.aloons In Oregon
City, this simply means thnt there Is
now enough on the bnsls of this rate
for 8!i00 people, and thnt Oregon City
must hnve a population of 9000 before
nnother license can be granted. If
nny saloon man shall go out of busi
ness or his license revoked for any
cause, his place of business will dis
appear. It Is believed that four or Ave of
the 17 saloons will be compelled to
co out of business, rather than pay
the high license.

J. V. Mofft-tt and Charles Parker, the
Improvement of Eleventh street was
commenced Monday morning and the
majority of the property owners who
have been trying for several years
to have the street Improved are re
joicing. The cost of the Improvement
will he In the neighborhood of $21,000
and the work will be completed this
Summer. City Engineer Meldrum
made a resurvey of the street Sun
day with a view to determining wheth
er or not the grade fronting the prop

be changed tn the sa'tlsfartion of all
parties concerned. It has been stated
that if the grade Is altered that the
suit of Captain Apperson to restrain
th" city from improving the street in

drawn. It seems probable that an
amicable arrangement can be made
in which event the appeal of Captain

GENEROSITY OF OREGON CITY
PEOPLE NETS $113.72 FOR
THE BOOK FUND.
The fun is all over, the tags are
sold. It was not necessary to take
advantage of the offer made by a
large number of Elks from Portland
to the effect that they wanted to buy
all the tags left for there were none
left. At the same time the ladles
managing the successful event wish
to convey to the visiting Elks their
thanks and to brand them one and all
as gentlemen of the calibre they al
ways considered the Elks were. Books

obtained 'the largest receipts.

BRING BAILEY INTO CASE.
Man Who Holds Judgment To Be De
fendant In Gladstone Suit.
Judge Campbell, of the Clackamas
County Circuit Court, has made a rul
ing that Jr. G. Bailey must be made
a party defendant in the suit of C. B.
Johnson against John W. Ixuler for
$'01.43. Johnson sold a tract in Glad
stone to R. W. Porter after Bailey
had secured a judgment against John
son in the Multnomah County Circuit
Court for $501.43, and in order to clear
the title Johnson placed the amount
of the judgment In the hands of Mr.
Loder and then instituted suit. Mr.
Loder raised the point that Bailey
should be made a defendant. It will
now be necessary for Johnson,
throi'gh his attorneys, Cross & Ham
mond, to file an amended complaint.

HAY PRICES ARE FIRM
Heavy Shipments Received From Cal
ifornia Keep Pricea Down
Ranch Butter la Now
A gradual strengthening in the hay
market, and a drop of two or more
cents In the price of eggs are about
the most notable features In thla
week's changes in the markets. Hay
has taken on a great deal of strength,
but heavy shipments from California
have prevented the prices from adopt
ing aeroplane tactics. The warm wea
ther of the past few days hag started
the hens to laying and the price baa
changed to 20 to 23 cents per dozen.
Should the weather continue warm,
the price will go still further down,
and the market will be flooded.
Although there Is a scarcity of coun
try butter, the price remains unchan
ged, but ia apt to soar at any time.
The supply of creamery butter meets
the demand. Creamery batter Is sel
