Tbe incorporation of tbo town of
WUlametio la likely 'to be declared
void on account of tbe alleged negli
gent manner in whlcn the town waa
Incorporated ,f the charges In tbe ans-
Iwer filed by James Downey and wlte
through .htr attorneys - Dimlck fc
Dimlck are substantiated.' The law
governing tbe incorporation of towns
and cities under the Initiative has
not been followed in tbe Incorporation
of the Town of Willamette as alleged
of Lord's Oregon laws provide among
other things that when a petition is
filed in tbe County Court lor the in
corporation of a municipality tbe
Court shall by order set the date for
tbe election, and at the election, the
qualified electors residing within the
proposed boundaries snail vote .upon
tbe question for Incorporation, - or
agalnat incorporation, and on tbe
first Wednesday of tbe next term of
tho County Court after the election
tho County Court shall proceed to can
vass tho vote cast thereat, and II, up
on such canvass, it appears that the
majority of the votes cast are for in
corporation tho Court shall enter an
order upon- its minutes-and declare
such territory Incorporated as a mu
nicipal corporation under tho name
and strle of the city or town as the
case may be, (naming It) and shall
also declare tho persons receiving re
spectively tbo highest- number oi
votes for such several offices to be
duly, elected as such officers.
Said nountr Court shall also cause
a copy of such order duly certified
to bo filed In the office of tbo Secre
tary of 8tate, and on and after the
date of such filing such Incorporation
shall bo deemed complete.
From a careful examination of tho
County Court Journal. It seems that
the Incorporators of the Town of Wil
lamette failed to have the votes for
and against the incorporation can
vassed by the County Court, or to
have any order made declaring the
result of the election, and the ans
wer filed by the defendants contained
the following allegation:
"That thereafter the aald T. J. Gary
and the other petitioners above men
tloned and all of the quallfled electors
residing within said proposed boun
daries abandoned the Incorporation
of said Town of Willamette, and after
said 2nd day of March, 19U8, the date
fixed by said order upon which to hold
said ' election, tbe said electors resid
ing within said proposed boundaries
as hereinbefore alleged, failed, neg
lected and refused to file In said Coun.
ty Court, or with the Clerk of aald
Court any return of said election or
any transcript therefrom, or any data.
Information, or otherwise, pertaining
to aaid election If any there was, had
within said proposed boundaries on
said 2nd day of March, 1908 or there
after, and by reason whereof said
County Court never at any time, on or
after the first Wednesday of the next
regular term of said County Court
after said date upon which said elec
tion was ordered or at all, proceeded
to canvans the vote cast thereat in
order to determine whether a majority
of said electors were In favor of in
corporation or against incorporation,
nor did the said. Court' have any In

held, nor did said County Court ever

TRESTLE HERE TO BE BUILT AT O
Promoters Declare Railroad Will Bo
In Operation to Beaver Crook
By tho Plrst, of
The management of the Clackamas
Southern Railway-Company will next '
Monday evening, pursuant to 'a reso
lution adopted by tbe board of dlrec
tors. Increase all stock sold by tbe
company from $50 to $100 per shire.'
This Increase Is to be made for tho
reason that sufficient subscriptions
have been received to more than In- i
sure the completion of tho grade and
bridgea 'from Oregon City to Molalla.
During the last week some of Clacka
mas County's best business men have
made liberal subscriptions for ' tho
capital stock without solicitation as
a matter of Investment only, and It
seems to be the universal opinion that. .
the investment Is one of tho best that .
has ever presented Itself to tbe peo- -pie
of this county. . One 'of the best
railroad men In the state has Just
completed a tour of the territory trav
ersed by the Clackamas Southern, and '
while he has no Interest in the road
he made tho statement that he was "
amazed at the possibilities awaiting
the completion' of the -road. He
further stated that In two fdays ho
ua- mora tonun awaJtlna- tn be
transported to market than tho Clack- -a
mas Southern could handle In tweo
ty years. '
The trestle from tho Southern Pav
effic tracks to the edge of the bill will -be
completed within the next twoV
weeks and the track will be Immed
iately laid from tho Southern Pacific
tracks to tho Newell Creek canyon,
and as soon as the bridge over tho
Newell Creek - canyon Is completed
the track will be immediately laid to
Beaver Creek, and the directors have -every
assurance that the road will be
in active operation from Oregon City
to Beaver Creek by January L i
Tho directors of the company have '
done a great work in taking up this
matter in Us Infancy and In moulding .
public sentiment In favor of tho con-'
struct! on of this line that has been
attempted by Oregon City people and '
others for ' more than ,tweoty-flvo - -years.
A majority of the directors,
have been engaged in business in
ClackamasjCounty for almost a auar- '
ter of a century and their . business
judgment 'is respected, and in all of -their
meetings held In the country - .
Snd also In this city, they have as
sured all of those who have sub-
scribed to the capital stock that the -building
of this Une was feasible .and
could be accomplished by the resi
dents of ho country if they would lay -aside
their petty jealousies and work ,.
together, and It Is very evident from -the
large number of subscriptions that ,
have been received that the people -now
are determined to build tho, road.
It Is conceded by all that this road la -a
necessity and that the Investment
presented by tbe board of directors
is a good one.
The company will receive subscrip
tions for stock at $50 a share until
Monday evening at 6 o'clock.
