A straw yotc taken at a meeting of the
Commercial club at Oregon City, Tues
day evening, participated in by repre
sentatives from Oregon City and a num
ber from Hast Clackamas, resulted 66 to
59 against division. The closeness of the
vote was a surprise to the opponents of
division, who had confidently expected
a 2 to I victory.
The vole wai the culmination of a ser
ies of meetings held with Oregon City,
during which Cascade county advocates
attempted to secure an expression of sen
timent from the Oregon City organiza
tion. A climax was reached Tuesday
night, when, after an objection *o a vote
had been made by representatives from
Sandy and Boring, it was ordered by
President McBain, who took pains to ex
plain that it bouud nobody and was sim
ply an expression of sentiment of those
in the room, as nearly as it could be
reached by the straw vote route. Every
body at the meeting was ullowed to vote,
much\o the surprise of Kstacada, which
supposed only the Oregon City Commer
cial club was to vote.
Cascade county now knows as much
about how the people of Oregon City
stand on the question as it did before the
conferences were held. And no more.

The Cascade boosters were well treated
and no Oregon City man spoke against
division. What verbal objection there
was, was registered by a few representa
tives from Boring, Sandy and Eagle
Creek. They were called on to »peak,
by President Me Bain and the gist of their
argument was that they knew little
about the subject and were therefore
against division because they believed
that taxes might be higher. They also
apologized to Oregon City for voting for
annexation to Multnomah two vears
ago and wound up by saying they were
born in Clackamas county knd hoped to
