Locals To Play
In Chautauqua Series
With a slightly altered line-up,
but possibly no better than form­
erly, the Estacada team wallop­
ed the Lang Company team of
Portland last Sunday afternoon,
by a score of 11 to 4.
A good sized crowd paid their
little two-bits or fifteen cents,
depending on the gender of the
fans, to witness the slaughter,
w h i c h commenced with the
seventh inning, with the score 2
to 2. At this time,- Estacada
started one of its famous batting
rallies, resulting in all nine men
going to bat and eight of them
crossing the home plate.
Neil Bronson pitched seven in­
nings, allowing George Smith
to finish the game and as but
seven hits were obtained off Es­
tacada, the pitchers performed
up to form.
This was Lang& Co.’s first de­
feat of the season, but the clean­
ing was sufficient to stop all fur­
ther crowing, although the game
might have been different had
their regular twirler, Knutson,
been in the box.
With Roy Douglass soaking out
a home run, tne following Esta­
cada players received hits, New­
ell 2; Simmons 1; C. Douglass 3;
K. Douglass 2; G. Smi h 1; Neil
Bronson 1; Lee Bronson 2; Go-
berg 1; Art Smith 2.
Lester Newell of Damascus is
the latest recruit to the local
team, being a speedy second base-
man and a strong batter, and the
fans hope to see him regularly in
the game.
Manager Lovelace completed
arrangements with Secy. Cross
o f the Willamette Valley Chau­
tauqua Association, Monday, for
the Estacada team to take part
in the coming baseball series, for
the coumy championship, nlayed
during the assembly from July
9th to 21sL
Inasmuch as the rulings this
year, only allow of Clackamas
County p ayers being used on the
contesting teams, Eastern Clack­
amas. with Estacada represent­
ing this part of the county, should
be a strong contender.
Next Sunday afternoon the lo­
cal team will play the Tribe of
Ben Hur o f Portland on the Es­
tacada grounds.

Beginning on Monday, W. A.
Heylman, the newly appointed
postmaster for Estacada, as­
sumed the duties of the office.
For the past few weeks, Mr.
Heylman has been availing him­
self of the co trtesies of the office,
as extended to him by past post­
master, A. N. Johnson^ where he
i has been familiarizing himself
with the complicated systems in
vogue in handling the govern-
! ment’s postal work.
For a short time the post-office
will remain in its present location
but later will be moved into the
old bank building, near the cor­
ner of 2nd and Main Sts.
building is admirably adapted lor
the purpose, with vault, safe and
o^her conveniences, altho the lo-
! cation is far from popular with
the majority’ of merchants, who
feel the need of a more centrally
located station.
The interior of the new build­
ing has been partly rebuilt and
altered, the work being done by
W. W. Boner and when the boxes,
windows, etc. are installed, will
be a credit to Estacada,
Postmaster Heylman wishes to
thank his friends for the success­
ful support given his candidacy
for the postmastership and wish­
es to assure the public that he
will strive to give the best o f ser­
vice in all matters pertaining to
the department and will strive by
courteous treatment and atten­
tion to details, to conduct the of­
fice as it has always been han­
dled by his predecessor.
• The News knows that it voices
the sentiments o f the people in
i wishing Mr. Heylman success in
| his new field arid in heartily
thanking retiring postmaster
Johnson for his efficient admin­
After a three weeks struggle,
following a serious operation at
a Portland hospital, Mrs. Annie
Allen of Cazadero, passed away
peacefully, e a r l y Wednesday
morning, May 31st.
The sad news of the death of
j Mrs. Allen came as a shock to
the hundreds of friends in this
community, who had been hop­
ing for her early recovery, as an
improvement in her condition
had been reported up to within
a day or two of her death.
While to the bereaved husband,
mother, sisters and dear ones,
her passing is a sorrow which
only years will soften; that feel­
ing of a deep personal grief and
loss is upon everyone of us whQ
had the pleasure of knowing,
working with and having been
associated in any way with M»•s.
To the last, her spirit o f sun­
shine, cheerfulness and unself­
ishness was present, forgetting
tier own sufferings in the desire
to cheer her aged mother, her
husband and family.
Mrs. Allen, who was the wife
I of C. S. Allen, was in her 33rd
year and had lived at Cazadero
the most of the time since their
marriage in 1901, where their
home has always been a cheerful
spot for the various members of
their family and their many

Morton Leaves For Alaska
Thomas Morton of Estacada,
who for the past three or four
years has been employed in the
forestry and fisheries work in
this vicinity and who is at pres­
ent in charge of the salmon traps
on Eagle Creek, this week receiv­
ed the appointment from the U
S. Bureau of Fisheries, to pro­
ceed to Yes Bay, Alaska, where
he will take charge of fish-hatch­
ery work.
This appointment is a civil ser­
vice one and a.% Morton recently
passed the necessary examina­
tions with a high mark, this
honor is well deserved.
While Tom’s many friends are
congratulating him upon this de­
served appointment, the young
i folks especially regret his leaving
Estacada, where he has always
been one of the most popular of
the younger men.
With the Eighth Grade Gradua­
tion Exercises taking place Mon­
day evening and the High School
Commencement program occur-
ing Tuesday evening, the Esta­
cada Public Schools closed until
next September.
The Commencement Exercises
were held in the Estacada Pavil­
ion, which easily accomodated
the crowd but failed to protect
them from the cold night winds,
which freely blew over the au­
Dr. Doney of Willamette Uni­
versity g a v e a splendid com­
mencement address, followed by
the preserftation of diplomas by
Prin. Guthrie and the awards of
scholarships by Pres. Fred Jorg.
The only disagreeable feature
of the exercises was experienced
by the young ladies of the grad­
uation class, who robed in light,
airy, fiimy and in some instances
slightly decolette gowns, we¡ e
forced to remain in their platform
seats and attempt to suppress the
shivers, keep their hands and lips
from getting too blue and at the
same time take an interest in the
exercises going on about them.
Oí the awards, Carl Kiinmel
was presented with a scholarship
to Whitman College; Miss Jessie
Hanna receiving similar honors
from Willamette University an
Miss Leila Howe being given the
Oregon Conference Scholarship,
which allows her the choice of
Reed. Albany, Philomath, Mc­
Minnville, Pacific Colleges or
Pacific University.
One of the pleasing features of
the exercises was the plentiful
supply o f gifts to the members
of the graduation class, among
others being the presentation of
17 beautifully bound Bibles, as a
gift -from Mrs. C. W. Devore of
Estacada to the class members.
All graduates were remembered
with presents, among them be­
ing a 17 jeweled gold watch and
fob, which now adorns the front
o f George Harkenrider. Bou­
quets of roses and others flowers
added to the pleasure o f the oc­
casion, blending into the profu­
sion of floral decorations through­
out the pavilion.
The News has not been advised
of the future intentions of the
graduates, some of whom will
enter teaching, others will attend
college and a few will begin at
once, that noble profession which
