^ JULY 4TH PROGRAM
ESTACADA WINS WET GAME
Estacada Celebration Will Draw Thousands
No Hinderance To Victory
The Estacada Fourth o f July celebration, under the auspices
of the Volunteer Fire Department, which will occur next Tuesday,
from the plans and program already announced, should eclipse all
former affairs and thousands o f local and visiting picnicers are
The following program, which guarantees “ something doing”
every minute o f the day or evening, will be carried out to the let
ter, with all events being staged promptly on time.
The prize automobile parade should be a drawing attraction
and much rivalry is now present, with decorating already begun.
Every automobile owner in Eastern Clackamas County or else
where, is urged to participate in this parade and help make it an
even bigger success than prophesied.
Taxpayers To Meet at Barton
The regular June meeting of
the Eastern Clackamas Taxpay
ers’ League was held at the
Family Theatre in Estacada last
For some reason or other, prob
ably owing to the good weather
for farming, few taxpayers at
tended, aside from the regular
standbys o f the organization,
including a good delegation from
It had been hoped that the in
terest which had been manifest
ed in the proposed formation of
a cheese factory here, would draw
a crowd, but apparently the ma
jority o f farmers were willing to
let the others affect the organi
zation in their absence.
D. C. Zink o f the P. R. L. &
P. Co. was the principal speaker
on the subject o f cheese making
as an industry for this commun
ity. Mr. Zink clearly presented
the facts and figures, as compil-
e ' from statistics gathered at
Canby and other points.
Owing to the the lack o f inter
est displayed in the matter, the
league voted to drop any furth
er promotion o f a cheese industry
and as no other organization is
liable to push it, Estacada’ s pro
poser! cheese factory will take its
place among the other visionary
Until such time as some one
man is willing to give his time
and money to the organization of
a local cheese factory, such an
i istitution will not be formed;
f >r like the history o f the local
cannery, few results were obtain
ed until one man got behind the
project and established the plant.
On motion o f E. W. Bartlett
and duly carried, the road com
mittee of the league was instruct
ed to request the Clackamas
Coumy Court to construct a
stretch o f hard-surfaced pave
ment on the main road, from
Eagle Creek bridge, passing the
Eagle Creek Grange Hall. Said
pavement to be similar to that
now being laid in the vicinity o f
Oregon City and Parkplace.
The second speaker on the
program was E. F. Riley o f Port
land, who gave an entertaining
talk on subjects o f vital interest
to the taxpayers, paying especial
attention to his pet subject o f
proper road drainage.
It was decided to hold the next
meeting o f the league, at Barton,
on Monday evening, July 24th.
The program for this meeting
will be in charge o f a committee,
comprising Messrs. Bartlett, Ely
and Harvey Gibson.

The victims o f
Sunday’s battle were the Penin

land and added their tribute to
the bunch o f Eastern Clackamas
“ farmers” who know how to
play baseball, at Estacada.
Owing to the rain, with the
field slippery and the ball both
slippery and heavy, the game
was not as interesting as former
ones, but the 15 to 7 winning,
kept the fans in good cheer.
Estacada was equipped in their
new uniforms and they presented
as classy an appearance as any
professional team ever did in its

players, Mascot Arnold Lovelace,

will be for sale at the rate o f 10c
each or one dozen for $1., so the
fans are urged to place their or
der early with the photo man.
It was rumored that the Penin
sula bunch had placed a little bet
back home with the lately defeat
ed Fulton Greys, that they would
return w i t h Estacada’ s scalp.
The Fulton Greys are now spend
ing the money.
In order to
make sure o f winning, the visi
tors imported a famous college
and semi-pro pitcher by name o f
Riggs, who probably owing to
the wetness o f the ball or possi
bly due to his self satisfied style
o f playing, failed to earn his pay
