Is found with conditions existing
now. It is believed that we do not
have the benefits of a no-license
town because the influence is the
same as if a licensed saloon existed
and the city receives no benefit
financially. To license soft drink
or near beer places is certainly not
any improvement of the morals
trom granting a regular license
The city is in great need of this
revenue to carry on needed iitiprov-
ments. If the people of Estacada
do not want any licenses granted it
is evident they do not want near
beer places, so if a no-lieense policy
is voted the council will at once
take steps to close these places and
they will then expect the people to
then sustain a tax policy. It the
people desire a license, conditions
will be required of those applying
so that order aud decency and the
protection of t h : public will be
guaranteed by a heavy bond.

As so much is being said about
strawberries in this vicinity I be
lieve it proper to give a true ac
count of the stn wberry’ s intro
duction into this part of Oicgotr
The first tame plants set out near
Estacada in South Garfield were set
out by Mrs. Edna Davis, mother of
Will, and J. J. Davis, on the spot
now occupied by Win. Davis' resi
dence. They were procured down
in Damascus from Deardorfs; not
understanding the nature of the
berries they were -et too th;, k and
too much fertilizer wa< used, so
the-re were only blooms and vines

and no berries. That was about
the year 1873.
The next was bought and
brought in by Mr. Dock Balinateer
in 1882, They were of the sharp-
less variety lie gave five dollars for
50 plants and Ins wife sold tlie ber
ries off those vines to Mrs. Dave
Canfield, who lived where Ed.
Wonacott now lives.
That was tlia beginning of the
strawberry culture out litre Then
Mr. W. I’. Sunffiu saw what ber
ries would do on our perfect soil
and bought a home in Garfield and
set out the first commercial straw-
berry field in this part of Clack
amas County. Mr Win. Holder,
knowing Suufiiu to be a thorough
berry man, followed suit Others
seeing their success have gone into
the berry business until it itt no
more an experiment, as our Esta-
cada-Garfield berries of all kinds
are second to none. There need be
