Creek .rom Horger,. agreeing to pay
812.000. .The sale waa made on a
contract, the Prestons paying 812.000.
They had defaulted 30 days on tbe
second payment of 82,000, when
Horger. brought suit for ejectment.
It la said the land Is worth about
8200 an acre. Within 80 days from
tbe time the payment waa due, the
amount was tendered and refused by
Horger, Judge Campbell ruled that
a foreclosure suit was necessary In
order for , Horger to regain iiosaea
alon of the property, aa the Prestons
certainly had an equity In the land.
Tbla afternoon Horger accepted tbe
money from the Prestons, which vali
dated the contract., George C.

COMMERCIAL CLUB ORGANIZA
TION HAS ACCOMPLISHED :
MUCH IN FEW MONTHS.
Committees Still at Work en New
Federal Building. Stafford Rural '
. Route and Rail Road to
' ' ' Molalla. '
Tbe Live Wires of tbe Oregon City
Commercial Club hsve suspended pub
lication until fall
At Tuesday's weekly luncheon,
which waa an unusually toothsome af
fair, tba Wires concluded to dispose
wltb tha regular session until the af-.
ter tbe summer Is over, giving the
Trunk Liae, under which name tbe
bead of tha organization la designat
ed, ample authority to call a meeting
at any time. ' The . auinmer season Is
close at band, this being tbe main
raeson for. the recess. .
While several , Important matters
are pending. It may be necessary to
have evening meetinga about once a
month. The Live Wires have been
working for some months upon tbe
establishment of a. rural route out. of
Oregon Cltr Into the Stafford coun
try. Tbe. ground haa been carefully
gone over and maps have been drawn.
and the matter Is now In tbe bsnda
of City Engineer Noble, wbo has
sgreed to prepare a map showing the
section of the county -over which It
la proposed to. establish a new route.
When this map Is completed a peti
tion .will be circulated among the
farmers directly Interested . In tba
establishment of a new route and for
warded to the postofffflce department
at Washington, D. C. .
The principal achievement' of the
Live Wires since Its organization last
fall has been In securing the appoint
ment of a county road master . H. E.
Cross was the man who proposed the
Installment of a system In the con
structlon of roads In Clackamas Coun
ty and he had tbe united backing of
all the Live Wires, and when the
matter waa put to the County Court
and thoroughly discussed, tbe appoint
ment of a roadmaster apeedlly follow.
ed. Thia one- thing la expected to
make a saving of several thousands
of dollars annually to the taxpayers
of the county. . . .
Another matter that the Live Wires
have taken a very deep Interest in Is
the construction of .a railroad into
the Molalla country. Judge G. It
Dimlck. W. A. Huntley, Prank Buscb
O. D. Eby. and other members of tbe
Wires Initiated this project, which has
had the hearty support of tbe organi
zation from tbe starL Rights of way
and surveys were obtained, thousands
of dollars subscribed, nearly every
member of tbe Live Wire taking some
stock, and grading of the road-bed
toward Beaver Creek baa been In pro
gress for several weeks. Sufficient
money la In sight for the actual con
struction of the road as far as Beaver
Creek, and there la little doubt of the
succeiuiful termination of the project,
which Is strictly a home grown move
ment, building with local capital and
governed by local men, who are not
drawing any salary for their work In
getting the enterprise on a sound foot,
The Introduction ot an ordinance In
the council providing for a weights
and measures commission la another
matter that the Live Wires Initiated.
Considerable publicity haa been given
to the Government report calling at
tention to faulty scales In some of the
Oregon City business houses, and an
ordinance waa presented to tbe coun
cil and will soon come up for final

tion of a federal building in Oregon
City Is a subject that sttracted the
attention of the Live Wires, and
through the efforts of a committee, a
bill was Introduced in the United
States Senate last-wee kr carrying an
appropriation of 875,000. It la not ex
pected that the bill will pass at the
extra session, but If the right kind of
work Is done, the appropriation has
an excellent chance of getting through
