Taxpayers To Meet at Barton July 24th. The regular June meeting of the Eastern Clackamas Taxpay ers’ League was held at the Family Theatre in Estacada last Saturday afternoon. 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 Barton. 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 local industries. 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. T hursday , 9.30 A. M. 10.30 ” 11.15 - 12 Noon Horn 1.30 P. W| 2.00 It was the same old story, only Estacada won the game during a nasty drizzle, instead o f on a fast dry diamond. The victims o f Sunday’s battle were the Penin sula Greys, who returned to Port 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 palmiest days. Prior to t h e game's opening, . photographer Al Stephens o f Garfield duly snap-shotted and photographed the team, including besides the players, Mascot Arnold Lovelace, Manager John L. and official scor er, Warren Barr. These photos 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 check, as he proved easy meat for Esiacada batters, who either were immune to Riggs Disease or re membered him as having pitched for Molalla during a past Chau tauqua series. Art Smith and Lee Bronson act ed as battery for the locals dur ing half o f the game, when I was forced to turn over the re ceiving to Doc Douglass, as Lee suffered a dislocated thumb in a collision with a base runner. Neil Bronson pitched the latter in nings, although Smith was in no Concluded on page 7 Pri^e Automobile Parade - For best decorated car. 1st prize - $10. donated by Estacada State Bank. 2nd ” - Indian Auto Robe ” ” Garage. - Gauntlet Gloves ” East Clack.
