TO RE SOLD IN CITY
The officers of . the ; Clackamas
Southern Railway Company will make
a strong effort this .week to sell
enough stock to build the trestle In
this city snd lay the steel from tho
river to the Newell Creek canyon, so
as to simplify the building of the
bridge across the canyon. The direc
tors feel that the' citizens of Oregon
City should come forward and assist
In t'ut work, as the residents of the
colinty have been extremely liberal In
providing for the grading of the line.
The building of this road means much
to Oregon City and Its business men,
and from the standpoint ef an Invest
ment It seems safe and sound. The
directors of this company are entitled
to help from the people of this city,
ss they are giving their services free
of charge and are working for the up
building of the city and the country at
large. During the early period of this
work the directors went out Into Uie
country school houses and balls and
held meetings, when the nights were
stormy and cold,. and little by little
tho foundation of this great work wss
laid, and now they point with pride
to the fact that the work Is well un
der way snd enough money subscrib
ed to build the entire grade from Ore
gon City to Molalla, and they are now
asking for a little extra help to build
the bridges and lay about a mile of
track. The directors should not be
compelled to go out and solicit for
this help. The citizens should come
forward and offer their assistance
without any persuasion, and thereby
place tho directors In a position to
complete the road at an early date.
BOON IN HIDING
HOMES STARTS HERE
There Is considerable building In
this city now and several persons who
recently purchased property are con
templating building In tile near fu
ture. J. C. Sawyer, who purchased a

tract for erecting a prettybungalow

Mr. 8lmmons has a force of men at
work on the building, and It will be

rooms -on the lower floor. Including
reception ball, living room, dining
room, Dutch kitchen, pantry and bath,
and one sleeping apartment Tho
npper floor will not bo finished for
tho present, but later Mr. Sawyer ex
pects to have two more sleeping rooms
finished1. , The building wtlj' be heated
by furnace, and a full cement base
ment will be one of the attractive fa"
tures of this home. A large veranda

EAST SIDE CANAL
CONGRESSMAN HAWLEY WIRES
THAT EVERYTHING, IS READY
. FOR CONSTRUCTION.
ENGINEERS REPORT IS APPROVED
Proposition of P, R. t 4 P. Co. To
Soli Weat Side Canal la Reject
ed $754,000 To Bo Expend
ed On Improvement.
Preaident Hedges of tbe Oregon
City Commercial Club, and Secretary
Bhewman. of the Willamette Open
River and Freight Rate Association,
received telegrams from Congressman
Haw ley Saturday giving the Informa
tion that no further congressional. ac
tion was necessary In connection with
tbe construction of tbe canal on the
east side of tbe Willamette River at
tbe falls. Mr. Hawley la of tbe opin
ion that tbe work will be suited in
tbo near future.--
- The telegrams were In answer to
messages sent Mr. Hawley urging
him to make every effort to have Con
gress accept tbeTeport of the army
engineers as soon ss possible. Tbs
answer to Mr. Hedges' message fol
'Engineers have approved the con:
struotlon. of locks on east side of river.
wbicb will begin as- soon as possible
under acts and appropriations already
made. Think no further congression
al action necessary at this time. How
ever, will continue to assist in the
work in any way possible.'
Congresman Lafferty wired tbat he
would co-operate with the other mem
ber of the Oregon delegation to fur
ther the work of constructing tbo
The cost of the proposed work Is
estimated at $754,000, and the gov
ernment will take Immediate steps to
acquire the necessary right of way.
It is estimated tbat four years will
be required to build the canal. Tbe
army engineers agreed with the rec
ommendation of Major Mclndoe that
it would be better and cheaper to
build a canal on the east side of the
river than to acquire tbe existing west
side canal owned by the Portland Rail
way Light & Power Company, and
rebuild and'enlarge it. Oregon has
appropriated $300,000, and Congress
bss appropriated a like amount, tf
which $7000 has been expended fh
surveys and estimates. An additional
appropriation by Congress of $159,000
will be required.
