To tbo member of the Commercial
Club, of Oregon City, Oregon:
(;ntli.ri!n: At this our aucoud an
nual mevllnK, Il la Incumbent upon
tbo president of tba club to aubmlt a
rcKrt of Die acrouuts and general
concern of the club during tbe pre
vious year, and alao to present an es
timate of tha receipt and disburse
ments for the current year.
In prnuMiilug tbla, my annual re
IKirt, as prcaldent of tbo club, I feel
thaMbe members fully realize tbo ex
tent of our operations during tba past
year, and therefore I deem It rnt nec-
easary to offer In minute detail every
atcp by which this club has achieved
Ita present position and atandlng. Hut,
I do want to Imprea upon you "that,
by tbe kind feeling tbo member hava
entertained toward one another, the
united efforta of your Hoard of Gov
ernors, and the zeal with which 'all
of the commit lees havo performed
their duties, we have been united Into'
a prosperous and powerful organiza
tion. Through tbia organisation a
putrtlclty department- waa- organized.
nd largely through Ihe efforta of thai
part men! Have we aeen our city
develope and Increase In population
notwithstanding tbe report to tbe con
trary from tbe official census bureau.
If we will but pause-a moment from
our strenuous and progressiva activity
aud ' look about - u for Improvementa
that have been going on with leaps
and bounds during tba past year, we
will observe dwellings going up In all
parta of the city, brick blocka con.
atrueted, a 35,0h high achool neartng
completion, a mill equipped and man
ufacturlng tlnaue paer, ona of tbe
finest amusement halls In the North
west, the construction of an electric
railway on the Weal Side, surveying
of the Willamette river and falls for
government locks and a deeper chan
nel to the sea. and thousands of dol
la rs expended In the grading and Ira
provement of streets.
This progressive spirit haa largely
been brought about by tbla Commer
cial Club. For, if thla Commercial
Club had not been In existence and
taken Ihe Initiative. It I more than
probable that the. publicity depart
mont would never have been born.
also the Live Wire organization may
never have sprung Into existence, and
It la largely through theae adjuncta to
our club that we hava been able to ac
complish tha activity and growth men
Also, through tbe activity of thla
club, the same tenacloua spirit waa
manifested when It bocame necessary
to combat trie division of our county,
The result of which you ara well in.

we have added to our club rooma

Theae matters of Interest to our
city should Inspire each member with
renewed activity, and during the year
of 1911 greater, grander and better
results should be attained.
From the report of the trensurer of
the publicity department It la ahown
that that department baa received
and dlsburaed, during the year com
menclng January 1st and ending Dec
ember 6th, 1910, aa follows:
Receipts from all sources, 13245.10
Plsbursementa for advertising, etc..
824.80. leaving a balance In the
treasury on December 6th, 1910, of
M20.30. This department baa accom
pllshed a great deal of good, for our
city and county, through tholr untir
ing zeal and by sacrificing a great
dealof their valuable time from their
bualneaa occupations. I believe I ex
press the sentiments of every member
of thla Commercial Club when I say,
Well done good and faithful servants.
enter thou for another year Into tha
anme duties with renewed' energies."
On January 21st, 1910, when I took
my oath of office aa president of thla
club, there waa In the treasury of the
club, 1518.10. During the year we
have collected aa feea and duea from
tho membera, 13467.80. From other
aourcea we have received $1153 25i

During the year we hava disbursed

and to hla efforta la due a great deal
of credit for tha standard thla club
maintains. I would recommend that
he, M. P. Latoureltn, be retained a
secretary. If possible.-
I desire also to make special men
tlon of the committee appointed for
the purpose of securing data for the
V. 8. Government KtiKlneera to bo
used In formulating their, report on
the 'permanent Improvement of the
Willamette river between tbla city
and Portland, Oregon, and for tbe con
struction of new and up-to-date lock
at the falls. Thla committee secured
a great deal of valuable data and
compiled It Into a voluminous report
which, no doubt, required a great deal
of patience and time. Tbla report wa
glvin to the 17. 8. Engineers, and I
am Informed that they have made fav
orable report recommending these Im
provements. I trust thla will not be
the last we shall bear of theae rec
ommendations, and I urge the Incom
ing offlcera of this club to be ever
watchful and continue to keep these
Improvementa i lite issue before our
Representatives In Congress.
I recommend that our gymnasium
bo equipped with belter facilities for
entertaining tha memlwrs of tho club.
We now bave a great many young
membera who are closely confined
during the day and are In need of auch
exercise a la to be derived from a
properly equipped gymnasium,..- In
conjunction with this healthful' exer
cise, I lelieve It would be beneficial,
and a atlmulent for the upbuilding of
our organization, to devise means for
out door amusements during tbe long
Aa time fleeta by, and tbe mad rush
for greater conquests continue to oc
cupy our time and minds, wa are In
clined lo forget tbe good thiuga we
have enjoyed and accomplished In Ibe

make mention of a few of tbe special
features In the way of entertainments
provided during tb year Just cloned.

respondence.) Representatlvea of tbe
Willamette Pulp A Paper Co. appeared
before tbe legislative committee to
night with Information relative to the
bill of 8enator Dlmlck, providing for
an R-honr day In the paper mills.
There wa represented to tbe com
mittee a protest, signed, by more than
70 employes of tbe Iebanon Paper Co.
and by all of the bualneaa men at Leba
non, against the Dlmlck bill. The pro
test waa forwarded by special mes
senger to Salem, addressed to tbe Ore
gon legislature, and waa handed to
Senator M. A. Miller, of Linn County,
at 8:30 o'clock tonight at the meeting
of the committee on Commerce and
Labor. Tbe protest follows:
An Eight Hour Law, such aa haa
been proposed by Senator Walter A.
Dlmlck, Is unsatisfactory for the fol
1st. It will lake away one, of our
Constitutional rights. ; '
2nd. It will reduce our Liberty.
3rd. It Is sure, eventually, to cause
reduction in wages.
4th. It Is not liable to materially
Increase tha number of men employed.
5th. Reduced wages meana poverty.
Gth. It will be almost aa much a
burden on labor aa capital.
7th. It will make working hours on
shift work very unsatisfactory. .
, 8th. It will be a discrimination
agafnBt our employers as their com
petitors In tbe Middle West, in tbe
State of .Washington and In British
Columbia will not then be working
under aame conditions.
. 9th. It applies to one industry
alone.- If a Law la enacted It ahould
apply to all Industrie.
10th. It will be liable to prevent
further increase of production of Ore
Aa cttlzena of tbe State of Oregon,
and as workmen affected, we hereby
protest against Senate Hill number
Sixty, becoming a law and petition
your Honorable Body to give ua a
Official Makea Statement
An Interview of those In charge of
the large pulp and paper mills In this
community by a representative of this
paper discloses some very interesting
data In connection with the proposed
eight hour law now in tbe bands of
Oregon legislature. First of all Sen
ate Bill No. 60 provides an eight hour
law only for auch Industries aa are
now running 22 or more houra out of
each 24, which Is termed a discrimina
tion against the paper and pulp mills
of thla atate, they at the present time
being about the only industries which
find it necessary to run 24 hours each
day, 6 daya per week.
An official of the company says:
"Should this law pass it will be a
great burden upon the people Interest
ed in these industries, not alone on ac
count of the Increased pay roll, but ou
account, first, of the shortage ot the
right kind of help and, second, on ac
count their, .chef competitor in the
Middle West. In the State of Washing
ton and in British Columbia, running
their plants on the two shift basis.
Reduced Wage Contemplated.
"There will be only one course left
open for those in charge of these great
plants. First, reduce the dally wage
of the men employed in proportion to
the number of houra they work under
tbe new law aa against their old day'a
work; reduce the number of men em
ployed In each' department to the low
est possible number and then fill in
the vacancies, If any, with new help.
"The publicity department of the
Commercial Club has for many months
been endeavoring to supply the mills
In thla dlstrclt with family men. There
are now about one thousand men em
ployed in and about Oregon City In
the paper and pulp mills, one quarter
ot which number are foreigners, about
which considerable complaint has
been made by the cltlzena of our atate
and county. The publicity depart
ment learned that all family men lo
cated In thla district would be given
employment and on bringing a large
number, all were employed by the var
ioua mills until all the vacant houses
li the city and auburba were filled and
It waa necessary for a number of fami
ly men to leave on account ot their
Inability to secure homea for their
families. The natural result haa beei
that foreigners have been employed,
for those In charge of the mllla must
keep full crewa and turn out full pro
duct. It la therefore" patent that the
natural result will be, In case a larger
number of men are required, the em
ployment of more foreign help. A
number of them now reside 10 or It to
the house and some in tent.
Hardship Upon This City.
"A reduction In the dally wage of
the men now employed will be a hard
ship upon a large number of residents
of Oregon City. Aa at present the
men are able to provide for their fami
lies and save something, a number of
them now owning or paying for their
homea. If the wage are reduced, as
It almost aeema aure they must be. the
men alone can. tell what the outcome
will be. If three men are paid In the
future what two men now receive, it
will work a hardship on aomeone. If
not all. and the business men of this
district -will feel it worse probably
than anyone else.
If an eight hour law must be
passed, It aeema that In fairness to tb
people who now have large interests
In the paper-and pulp Industry that
tht eight hour law should apply to ail
industries doing business within the
atate aad It seems to a layman that
tha Supreme Court of tbe United
States, If not the lower court,, will
tbrow out a law such a I now' pro
posed a being class legislation.
Take Away Workman'a Llbarty.
"An eight hour law takca away from
tbe worklngman a constitutional right
and part of bla liberty. Under auch a
law if he want to work over-time to
make hla payroll check larger, he can
not do It. He muat be atlried with
hi dally wage and endeavor to keep
hla family with that amount alone or
else move to some other district or
state where he can act aa he wishes.
"A In all matters the above show
that there are two aidea to thla one
and our legislature, ahould give the
matter very careful consideration be
fore Imposing auch a law on tbe manu
facturers In our district."
WHOSE IS THE HONEY
FOUND ON THE DEAD?
GOVERNOR WEST TAKES A HAND
IN THE EFFORT TO SEE
RIGHTFUL HEIR WIN.
A case In the courts here that has
furnished no end of contention la that
of the. estate of the old man found
dead with near $500 In gold on hi l
person. It - waa thought the man'a
name waa Williamson and a woman
named Effie B. Robinson lay claim to
the estate and set up the claim that
she was hla daughter and that her
maiden name waa Williamson.
During the time covered by the legal
contention It waa claimed the discov
ery was made that her name had been
Williams and that two letter had been
added to. the marriage certificate for
the purpose of securing the money.
The final wlndup in the county courts
was the order of Judge Beatie for the
County Treasurer to pay tbe money
over to the woman.
Tbe lost move In the case came
with Governor West on Saturday ap
