The discussion brought out the fact
that Chief 8hsw had collected $10H
since the first of tho month and that
In doing so he had msde a record.
Meyer thought the record waa a good

of three to act and report at the next
meeting of that body. Thla commit
tee la comiwsed of Messrs. Meyer,
Roake and Andresen.
Oregon City Is anxious for another
electric railway, and the route to bo
traveraed by the Mount Hood lo. is
the ono which business men or tne
city would like to see opened up to
this city.- And If thla company means
business, and can convince Council of
that f.net, and of the further fact that
the company la willing to give the
people of this city a square deal, there
will be no difficulty In securing all
the privileges that are d"e to the com

ternoon. There were 40 votes against
It. .. .
The special committee consisting of
the House standing committees on

which the bill waa re-referred, this

Senator Dlmlck and frienda of the
bill appeared before the committee,
which held a meeting late last night.
Fouts proposed that the bill be amend
ed so that Its provisions should apply
only to manufacturing and mechanical
plants where the conditions of labor
are Injurious to the health of employ
er or employes, but this waa not ac
ceptable to the members of the Joint
committee. Other members of the
legislature asked the committee so to
amend the bill that Ita provisions
would not apply to various Industries
of the State. Senator DlmlcK, How
ever, would not consent to the Incor
poration of any such amendments
feeling that the effect would be to
render the measure unconstitutional
and Inoperative, When the bill came
up aa a special order at Z o clock this
afternoon Thompson moved that the

We have two more good roads Jet

These letters Indicate that people are
awaking to the fact that good roads
are needed; now what Is necessary Is
that people get to thinking as to what

We are glad to give expression to
the Ideas of any or the readers or the

""Veb. 11. 1911. ,
Editor Enterprise: My belief Is
that a roadtnaster, ir appointed by our
County Court, will not take away from
the county court any or its powers un
der the law as It now exists, but the
services ot the roadmaster will tend
only to relieve tb,e County Court and
to systematlxe tbe business or road
building. Nor do I believe that this
roadmaster will supersede our super
visors. It seems to me that the road
master being an overseer may be Of
very great assistance to our Road Sup
ervisors, Just as the superintendent
of construction Is In the matter of
heavy construction work on railroads
and manufacturing establishments
and other concerna. It aeems to me
there Is little or no reason to heslcate
In this matter because the history of
business demonstrates the advisabil
ity of having a competent single man
at the head of all large construction.
I do not think an Incompetent man
should be appointed under any cir
cumstances, ror that would unques
tionably work great Injury, but 1
think a competent man, even at a con
siderable salary, ought to be appoint
ed or none. Yours truly,
JOS. E. HEDGES.
Editor Enterprise: I sincerely hope
that some way may be worked out
through which the road building of
Clackamas County may be superviseu
by some thorough and competent en
gineer and road hunaer. 1 wm
that the road supervisors as a body
are honest men and doing the very
best they can under the present sya
tnm hut there can be no general plan
of permanent work and permanent
road building with each road dlatrlct
a separate system unto Itself.
I believe that the road supervisors
generally will be glad to have the aa-
alstance of a thorough roaa man, anu
with whom thoy may consult about
the laying out, draining and putting
down of roada and I am convinced
from the figures quoted by Judge Dim-
next Sunday evening. Rev,
4 Hayworth, the pastor,' will begin
a series of Sunday evening talks
to young people. The first will
be "Jacob Seeking Rachel or Lea-
sons From an Old Ive Story."
4 Miss Veda Williams has been em-
ployed by the Baptist Church to
assist the pantor as church and
Sunday school visitor. The mem-
t bership of the church Is the larg- e
b est In Its history, there being
475 names on the roll, of whom
all are residents of Oregon City
and Clackamas County except
65. Pastor Hayworth la . plan-
nlng a week's gospel mission to
begin March 5. He will have the 4
aaslstance of Professor B. P.

CHIEF'S .SALARY RAISED.
Council Passes Unanimously, on First
Reading, Ordinance Doing 80. i
Chief Shaw seems to be making a
record as an officer and collector. Uy
the terms of his contract, and from
the nature of the case, the chief Is
given the duty of collecting the fines
and llcei.zes due the city. So far this
month It Is reported that he has col
lected $108. and that in doing so has
established a new record.
It Is useless for Council to assess a
rine. levy a license or ror the city
court to assess a rine if It is not to be
collected. And ir they are all collect
ed It Is an easy matter to pay the man
who does the work. As the- new
Chief Mr. Shaw haa been doing bet
ter than the ordinary Council went
ahead last night and raised bis salary
rrom $75 to 1100 a month. At least
the ordinance waa passed first read

NEW-FOUND "FRIEND" LEADS HIM
TO GAMBLE AND WIN WITH
DROPS OTTO SHARK'S CCtTEKS
Carrie HI Money to Frisco In Face
of Warning Given Him
By Lawyer and
A good old farmer of Damascus waa
recently made the dupe of a bunco
of San Francisco sharks who beat
him out of $3000 by that old game of
allowing the victim to win a large sum
but requiring him to put up big money
as evidence that he la entitled to bis
winnings. It Is a bunco game aa old
as the hills, but there are many men
who are unsophisticated and suscep
tible to the trick. But when tho game
Is played so near home as In this in
stance that fact In Itself adds Interest
to It even though the trick is an old
The old farmer s one of the most
staid and reliable in the Damascus
neighborhood, and he has a family
who are as Industrious aa himself.
He has been away for several months,
traveling In Mexico and Southern Cali
fornia. While enroute home from that
Southland, and while on shipboard on
the way to San Francisco, he fell tn
with a man who purported to be an old .
farmer like himself. The two became
quite chummy while at aea and when
they landed in Frisco began to aee
the sights together, the other profess
ing Ignorance of tbe city aa great as
In the course of their wanderings
the two dropped into a pool room
where there waa gambling on tbe rac
es. His friend bet a dollar on the
races and won. The old farmer was
induced to make a small bet. He put
up a dollar, remarking that if he did
lose It wouldn't break him. But at
the end of the receipt of a few figures
on the wire be was told he had won
Naturally the German wanted his
money. But be waa at once told that
such was not the rules of the game; '
that he must put up $3000 to prove
to them that he could have paid In
case he had lost; that the fact that
he bad won could not Inure to his ad
vantage unless be was in position to
pay in case he had lost; that thla was
a sportsman's game and that they had
neglected -to tell him this supposing
1 he had known it inasmuch as bis part
ner was wise. But he waa assured
that be had won the $3000. and in ord
er to get it it was only necessary to
show that be could have paid Ui case
h A . ,
. d ere wag where h new-found
-,. wa. enabled to ateer him right
and assure him that it waa a square
game, that the house had made money
on the day's transactions and that his
winnings made but a small hole In
tfc6 day., prof4u of tne house.
i T make a ,ong 8tory 8nort, he was
' t h, money. Arriving
, ., rtn hl. ,aw.
yer and consulted him In the matter. ,
The lawyer saw at once that hla client
waa greatly excited and learned that
while he had been away from home
for niontha he bad stopped In town to
fix this deal up and had put off going
home till a later day. The lawyer
told him he waa being deceived; that
he bad no winnings but that the .
sharks wished to get him into the city
with the money and then divorce him
The Dutchman could not see it that
way but did finally go home and talk
with his family. A day later he and
his wife, son and brother came to see
the lawyer who gave to all his version
of the trick. But he was atlll certain
of his winnings and borrowed tbe mon
ey, put It Into a draft and started ror
Frisco. Before going, however, he
assured bis friends and lawyer that
he knew how to protect himself and
said that having the money in a New
York draft was certain to protect Mm.
Arriving In Frisco be had little
trouble In locating his friend and In
frndlng the pool room. He was shown
several thousands ot dollars on a table
from which pile he was to be paid
when one be convinced them of his
financial ability.- He showed his New
York drart In evidence. They "could
not receive this," they aald. "but they
would help him to cash it." Thla he
