Pavilion Rental Lowered
There are a few matters per­
taining to the public welfare of
this community that the Progress
has been trying to effect, among
them being one of minor import-
ance, namely the (Aitainii.g from
the P. R. L. & P. Co., o f a lower
rental for the Estacada Park
Pavilion, than the $10. per night,
which has always been paid.
Inasmuch-as the majority of
1 of dances or other attraction giv­
en in the pavilion are directly or
' indirectly f o r public benefac­
tions, such as the C. 1. C. work
and the Firemen’s Assn., a low­
ering of the rental was desirable,
as the profits from the majority
of entertainments are small.
The Progress also knew that
the railway company was not
aiming to make money from this
rental and in many instances had
refunded the rental money to
help out, where a profit was
Through the efforts of Mr. R.
M. Townsend of the company,
hereafter a flat rental of $8. per
night has been arranged, al­
though this will not affect the
present arrangement which the
Estacada school has, for basket­
ball games and practise.
1916 County Fair
Should Be Agitated Now
The ‘ \egai knockout” giver to
the charter of the Clackamas
County Pair Association l a s t
week L>y Governor Withycombe,
ow .ngto th ■ ass ,ciation not hav­
ing complied wiih the require­
ments governing such corpora­
tions, has automatically acted as
a temporary "‘legal knock out”
o f the contemplated purchase of
the Canoy Fair Grounds by the
county court
Even if the county court de­
sired to buy the grounds now for
the sum of $7,950.00, it could not
ootain a clear title, if any title at
all to the property, as owing to
the present condition o f the as­
sociation, it cannot give said
In the mean time, we are ad­
vised tnat the creditors want
their money and may take over
the grounds as security.
County Judge Anderson, is
quoted in the Morning Enterprise
as having said "I would be in
favor of putting it on the ballot”
in referring to purchase of the
Canoy grounds. The court ap-
paientiy lealize the reasonable­
ness of the request o f the East­
ern Clackamas T a x p a y e r s ’
League, which asked the court to
first ascertain the sentiment of
the voters of the county.
January is pretty nearly over
now and if a successful county
fair is to be staged this taii,
now is the time to get busy and
formulate the preliminaiy plans.
Now is a goad time to consider
the renting or purchase of a
centrally located lair grounds,

mobile, and on a good road 1 roni

thing could be done now, it is
likely the East Ciackamas Coun­

tralized place.

The annual stockholders meet­
ing of the Estacada State Bank
was held at the bank last Friday
and also the first quarterly meet­
ing of the board of directors.

ness, the s.ockholders were well
satisfied with the steady growth
of the business.

Slade, were at the bank Monday,

districts, ty special tax, volun­

Eastern Clackamas wants to
see Sandy get this road and the
Taxpayers’ League should join
with them, if the added support
and prestige is needed.

In Favor Of United Worship

owing to a campaign now going
on in Estacada and nearby sec­
tions by both the Christian and
Methodist Churches of Estacada,
to raise funds for the coming
year, much favorable comment
has been expressed on the sub­
