And now it is talked plainly, openly
-and above board that tho fish ladder at
Oregon City is a fraud, a swindle and
no good. It is sail that Mr. Clark
-took the contract for excavating the
way for $1350, and that the rest of the
work did not exceed t$G5f, making
2000 in all expended on the works.
"This, if true, leaves t8000 unaccounted
for, and divers rumors are passing from
- place to place that no. vouchers can i
hown by the State .official to skuw
where this money was paid out and
receipted for by workmen eiNpUyed on
the ladder. Personally e kuow
nothing about it, but we do kuow that
