    What Are We Going To Do?
Probably if the publisher of
the News was an old, experienc­
ed hand at the business, he would
be wise enough to refrain from
showing any preferences among
the political candidates, until af­
ter the primaries, thereby stand­
ing a much better chance of am
tagonizing no one and conse­
quently reaping a few more dol­
lars in campaign advertising.
But, if in order to take in more
of t h e candidates advertising
money, the News has to keep
still and see Eastern Clackamas
County unrepresented in the next
County Court, it will dispense
with the added income.
There is no need of beating a-
round the bush in summing up
the present political aspect, as
far as it regards this community
and this part of the county.
The way conditions are right
now, the chances of Eastern
Clackamas County being repre­
sented in the coming County
Court, would hardly be worth a
three-to-one bet, but this condi­
tion can be remedied.
The Republicans of Eastern
Clackamas County have got to
stand together and stick togeth­
er for one of our three Republi­
can candidates, for all three can­
not be nominated and one of
them cannot receive the nomina­
tion, if the others receive much
Indications point to a willing­
ness on the part of a large num­
ber of the voters in other parts
of the county, to see Eastern
Clackamas represented as tne
western and northern parts are
row represented by good men.
With the help of this outside
vote. Eastern Clackamas stands
a good chance of winning, pro­
viding this district does not de­
feat its own objects by scatter­
ing the votes.
Of the candidates who have
filed for the local nomination, all
are good, clean, business men
and taxpayers, but a choice must
be made. At the outset of the
campaign many good men signi­
fied a willingness to make the
run and after a spell of elimina­
tion, J. W. Reed was left suppos­
edly as the only one in the field.
Mr. Reed several times offered to
withdraw in favor of other can­
didates and only accepted the
candidacy, after it was under­
stood that other parties now in
the race, would not be competi­
Now it is up to the voters to
decide the matter, will they stick
together for the original candi­
date in the field, or will they let
the Republican nomination go by
default to a candidate from some
distant part of the county; for
that is bound to be the result of
a split up vote?
No matter who is finally nom­
inated and elected to the County
Court, he will undoubtedly well

P a c k a rd vs. Ford
One of Estacada’s auto enthus­
iasts (name with held) last Thurs­
day morning, while Fording down
one of Portland’s slippery streets,
successfully completed the skid
act at the same time that a big
Packard touring car came around
the corner. The repair man, who
acted as surgeon in the case,
claims the front axle of the Ford
was so badly bent, that it spelled
the word "Givens,” but no fur­
ther harm was done.

One the best advertisements
that Estacada has today, is the
neat looking row of homes on

To this row is now being added
another neat home, which when
completed will represent about a
$2,000. investment, as Dr. Lee
A. Wells of Estacada is having a
handsome residence built.
The foundations are already in,
the work being in charge of Con­
tractor Burd, who will also do
the plastering and similar W'ork.
The carpentry is being handled
by Earl Shibley of Springwater,

rooms, latest plumbing, with
