ESTACADA 6, OREGON C I I Y 14
County Setters Finally Get
Last Saturday afternoon, the
heavy and fast Oregon City High
foot-ball team, won against the
Estacada team by a score of 14
to 6, and are gloating over their
revenge for last year’s defeat.
Estacada has nothing to be
ashamed of in their losing, for
they were up against a heavier
and more experienced line up.
The county seaters played good
foot ball and, with few excep
tions, played a clean game.
At the end of the first half,
the score of 7 to 6 in favor of the
visitors, looked as though Esta
cada was going to more than hold
their own, but straight line plung
ing in the second half, against
our lighter line, landed another
touch down with its attendant
goal. On Estacada’s touchdown,
the goal was missed as usual.
To name the stars of this game
would mean the naming of every
player on Estaeada’s team, for
every man more than played his
part. Dale and Womer, as al
ways, were ground gainers aud
Dale’s 40 yard run for a goal,
was the most spectacular of the
season. Denny not only was a
ground gainer, but his tackling
broke up many a play in its in
The newest constellations to ap
pear in this, their last game, were
Wagner and Barr. These two
boys broke up more plays than
any other three men on either
team and their tackling was a
joy to the spectator, but far from
a pleasure to the opposing runner.
One fact was apparent to the
spectators and that was the su
perior physical condition of Ford
boys as compared with their an
tagonists. Almost no time was
taken out for Estacada’s men to
recuperate, while Oregon City
had several men temporarily laid
out and the interval gave them
time to get their wind. If Esta
cada had insisted on longer
halves, as originally outlined,
the score might have been differ
ent, for Estacada could have
stood double the playing period
without signs of exhaustion.
One of the Oregon City faculty
acted as referee and his decisions
were fair in every way with no

Gresham to Meet with
At two o’clock Saturday, after
noon, December 12th there will
be a mass meeting held at the
Family Theatre in Estacada, to
consider the proposals of the
Gresham cannery officials, as re
cently outlined in the Progress.
Pres. Davis will bring along a
number of speakers, who will out
line their work, and present their
co-operative proposition to the Es
tacada growers and give an idea
of the price paid for the produce.
Every grower of small fruits,
grower of vegetables, and farm
er, should be present at this meet
ing. The Gresham people mean
business and the local grower
does too. It is likely that sucn a
union with our neighbors will
prove a profitable deal for this
community and solve tne long
standing question of the planting
and disposal of our produce.
Let every grower be present,
and prepared to ask questions
and prepared to take some defin
ite action, as regards hb or her
personal attitude on this subject.
It looks as though such a union
would be just what Estacada
needs at this time, as the plant
ing and marketing of their pro
duce can be done, without hav
ing to invest in a cannery in ad
1915 County Budget
Tuesday, September 15, 1914 is
the day set for a meeting of the
Clackamas County Court, in the
County Court room in Oregon
City, for the purpose of levying
taxes to defray the probable ex
penses of the County. At that
time and place, any taxpayer,
subject to such levy when made,
may be heard in favor of, or
against any proposed tax levies.
The budget as outlined in the
Oregon City Courier, if properly
added up, would total over the
half million mark, although other
reports show a total of about
This money as raised and ex
pended by the county, through
its officials, is a big sum, and if
handled by a corporation or busi
ness house, would necessitate a
very thorough and up-to-date
system of bookkeeping and audit
Is Clackamas county availing
itself of the most approved sys
tem for the handling and ac
counting of these moneys? This
question is not meant as an in
sinuation in any way, but at the
time of the “lost Cascade county i
struggle” the preliminary report
of the auditors, was not overly
