COMMERCIAL CLUB AND CITY
NOTABLES JOIN IN HEARTY
Judge Thoinns F. Uyiin Is one of
tho few who received his eulogy and
praise while he Is still on earth. The
testlmoiilnl In the form of a banquet
tendered him Inst Thursday night by
tho Oregon City Commercial Club was
a wonderful tribute to a man who, In
his residence of 28 years In Oregon
City, hns filled many positions of
nonor and trust with credit to him
self nnd the community. There were
mure than IHO men, prominent In btisl-
ness and professional circles, who
gathered 'round tho board, nnd nfter
discussing n delicious menu, In which
must turkey played no small part,
listened to Interesting talks until the
hour of 11, when the banqueters arose
to the nir of "Auld Umg Syne."
Stale Senator Hedges was the toasl-
nuistcr. nnd ho filled thnt place with
ins usual sang froid. Happr nnd fe-
licit ions speeches w ere made by Cir-
lilt Judge Campbell, .Mayor-elect
llrownell, (Jllbert L. Hedges, County
Judge Dlmlck, C. Schuebel. W. S.
irilen. County School Superintendent
ary, City Attorney Stlpp, O. W. East-
hum and Frank Ilusch. The speukers
were witty, then serious, but all of
them referred to the deep regret with
which they viewed Judge Kynn's de
parture for Salem, even while they
rejoiced In his elevation to a position
of high responsibility. There were
funny stories, too, told with much
gusto, by that prince of story tellers,
(Iraut It. Dlmlck, seconded by Judge
Campbell, Superintendent Gury and
Judge Ryan made a feeling re
sponse. He wns much affected by the
words thnt fell upon his ears, and was
loath to leave such a Jovial company
of good fellows. Ho urged the mem
bers of the Commercial Club to con
tinue to work for the welfare and un
building of Oregon City and Clacka
mas county, and said he hoped to
como buck to this section when his
work in Salem wns complete.
Judgo Rynn leaves for Snlom before
January 1, and will become Chief Dep
uty In tho office of State Treasurer
Kay. He will be accompanied by his
family nnd they expect to be absent
nt renst four years.
There are U1 people In Oregon
City between the ages of 4 and 20
years, as shown by the school censu
that has Just been completed ami
checked over, Indicating the city has
a population of C.525 persons, multi
plying tho number enumerated by 4.5
It Is expected, however, that the gov
ernment census will not show In ex
cess of 0,00(1.
Hundreds of new people have come
to Clackamas county during this yea
ana many of them have located
Oregon dry. The enumerator found
that people had come to Oregon City
wiinin me last lew months from
Texas, New Mexico, Idaho, Colorado,
Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas. Wiseon
sin. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Califor
nia, Kentucky and Minnesota. Some
of them hud been over In Washington
but preferred the Willamette Valley
and many found Seattle go dull that
they were glad to come to this r.c
Hon. The pleasing scenery attracted
them and some of them had not seen
green grass for more than two months
before their arrival here.
The enumeration has proven thit
the money spent through the Com
mercial Club for publicity purposes
has brought results, though the cam
paign was started only about one year
ago. Many people have no hesitation
In saying they were led to come to
Clackamas county through the adver
tising and literature that has been
sent broadcast Into every part of the
l lilted States. Not a few of 'he re
cent arrivals are people with some
money, and they have expressed their
Intention of building residences next
spring. There Is a crying need in
Oregon City for more houses. Tl.ls
morning a man came here from Port
land, with the Intention of goin? Into
business, but could find no suitable
residence for bis family. Yesteiduy
one real estate firm had four applica
tions for houses that would rent from
$12 to $17 per month.

Oregon. Mr. Wishart is in the drug
business at Toledo, and has been a
resident of that.city about two years.

Judge Campbell, of the Circuit
Court, handed down his decision on
Wednesday morning in the case of
Curtis Helvey, who made application
through his attorney for a new trial.
Helvie was found guilty of murder
In the second degree at a trial last
week for the killing of George Smith.
The Court granted a jiew trial. In
rendering bis decision Judge Camp
"A Judge should be careful not to .,
assume the prerogatives of the Jury
in a case of so much Importance as
the one under consideration, where
twelve men have deliberated. A Judge
should be careful, however, not to
overlook the fact that new evidence
may arise arter the case has been
tried. In case new evidence Is un
covered the Judge should then as
sume the duties even of the Jury.
"Some criticism has been made of
the District Attorney and bis atti
tude; don't think it is well founded;
think he did only his duty and the
work for which he was chosen a
labor of securing all possible evidence
and presenting it to the jury.
"There seems to be a conflict In
the testimony; what was supposed to
be a gunshot scar on the snag in the
woods was of another character, and
not a bullet hole at all. Not possible
for 32 gunshot to make such a hole.
"The theory for which the state
contenaed of a following of the dead
man by accused is not confirmed by
the evidence. Jhe man facing a gun
in the bands of an irate individual
making tnreats Is not likely to turn
his back to his foe, so that the gun
shot in the back is not confirmatory
of assassination. Think that Jury
was Influenced by evidence that Is
now believed to be conflicting that
jury ' was of opinion accused was
guilty of first degree murder but be
cause of conflict in evidence second
degree was substituted. When first
degree theory fails then second de
gree murder is not sustained in evi
dence. "Taking all things into considera
tion feel it my duty, notwithstanding
the verdict, to set It aside."

George Griffith Works for Monument
or a Fountain.
At the firemen's banquet Saturday
night, a communication from Georg
C. Griffith was read, urging that steps
be taken by the various fire compan
ies toward the erection of a monu
ment or fountain to the memory of
the departed members of Oregon
City's fire department. The article
received the closest attention, and It
Is more than possible that an effort
will be made along this line.
In his article, Mr. Griffith cites some
of the history of the Oregon City fire
department, beginning with the or
ganization of Company No. 1 in the
early '60's, and coming to more re
cent times, tells of the members of ,
championship hose teams of a few I
years ngo who hnve since answered
the final call of the Greatest Chief
The fact that not a monument of any
kind Is dedicated to the memory of
these departed fire laddies Is strong
ly pointed out.
