County and City Official* Act
The Oregon City officials, with
the aid of the C ackamas County
officers, last week proceeded to
stir up the usual county seat
slumbers, by raiding a few illeg
al booze joints.
The Oregon City Moose Lodge
was the place where the fun be
gan, and the officials came out o f
the fracas with plenty o f evi
dence, in the form of a Govern
ment license for the sale o f liq

Much credit is due the officials
o f Oregon City and o f this county
for their strict enforcement of the
liquor laws. But it is the same
old story; part of the money rais
ed by Eastern Clackamas’ tax
payers, is spent to help enforce
the laws at the county seat It
is sure an expensive luxury fo>- a
rural county to maintain a real
metropolis for its county seat.
