New Bridge Muat Ba Built Somewhere,

Shorter Route to Port
The Board or Governors of the Com
mercial Club met Monday evening for

club. There was a visiting delegaJ
tion irom the Jennings Lodge Com
munity Club present aa guests and the
purpose of the visit was In part to
Interest the Oregon City organization
In matters of mutual benefit to both
The committee from Jennings Lodge
called attention to the needa of a Ave
cent fare from here to the Lodge. It
seems that at present the fare limit
stops about 200 yards thla aide of the
station at Jennings Lodge, and people
of both placea think the company
should grant the extension. If It la
refuaed by the railway the clubs will
take It up with the railroad commis
The visitors called attention to the
fact that it Is but 214 milea from city
to city, and (hat this is the natural
trading place for the Lodge once the
fare conditions are adjusted. The mat
ter of the wagon road between the
citlca waa also taken up and discussed
and It waa agreed that the river road,
that has not been used for some years,
should be opened up again and a new
bridge thrown acroxs the Clackamaa
River near the mouth ao that the road
may be used when once opened.
The committee called attention to
the fact that a new bridge must soon
be built some where; that If a new
one la built n the river road it will
divert much of the wear and tear from
the old one and that It will do for
service much longer In that event;
that It la a route two milea shorter to
Portland than the old way and that
now a bridge is needed tt ia an appro
priate time to build below and open
the road. To all or which the Com
mercial Club assented.
The river road ta said to be always
high and dry and that at no time will
it overflow from the river. Roadway
Is partly ' put through now and It
would not cost much to make the Im
provement, aside from the bridge.
The committee manifested a desire
to work more closely with Oregon City
In business and social relations A
feeling that la reciprocated by citizeaa
and businesa men of thla city.
The point waa made that one wish
ing to go to Portland on the O. W. P.
and atopplng off at Jennings Lodge it
will coat 30 cents, while to visit any
other point en route will cost but 25
centa, a discrimination against Jen
The Commercial Club appointed a
committee of. five to visit Jennings
Ivodge on the regular meeting night
of the Community Club, aa a friendly
call and to meet A. S. Hunt, of the
O. W. P., who promises to be there on
that occaalon to take up matters of
differences between the railway and
the club. It waa thought tbe attend
ance of a delegation from the Commer
cial Club might add to the weight of
the protest that ta to be put up against
the'Tatlroad evils under which both
communities feel that they are suffer
ing. The committee Is composed of
Harry E. Draper, T. P. Randall, G. L.
Hedges, Dr. Clyde Mount and Dr. T.
Tbe next meeting of the Lodge
Community Club will be on Wednes
day evening and the committee will
attend and see what good things may
be brought out of a closer businesa
and social relation of the two cities.
