With the present growth of the
prohibition movement in this and
other states, the demand for non­
intoxicating beverages is growing
by leaps and bounds.
This is proving a boon to the
grower of loganberries and other
fruits suitable for manufacture
into drinks and this community
with its cannery, should profit by
the continued culture of these
small fruits, as a steady market
is guaranteed for years with good
contract prices being offered by
the cannerymen.
Circuit Judge J. U. Campbell
of Oregon City last week handed
a hard jolt to an offender o f the
prohibition laws, when Ju.ius
Wilbur, proprietor of the Friars’
Club of Milwaukie, was convicted
of booze selling and sentenced to
six months in the county jail
and a fine of $300.
While Wilbur’s attorneys are
trying to clear their client on
some legal technicality, it is like­
ly said client will have plenty of
time to meditate on the errors of
his ways before his six months
are up.

Editor Brodie of Oregon City,
recently appointed a member of
the State Prison Board, returned
last week from an extended east­
ern trip, where he investigated
the operation of penitentiaries in
other states.
While in Toledo, Mr. Brodie
carried on his investigations in
an effect to determine the causes
leading up to the downfall of the
unfortunates, who later become
inmates of the peniteniaries, and
in a postal received by ye editor,
stated that his investigation were
more than interesting.
If as Editor Brodie states that
“ idleness is the chief evil in pris­
on management’ ’ there would
be little danger of fault finding
with any penitentiary that E. E.
had charge of. for the word idle­
ness is not in his vocabulary.
Some complaint has been pres­
ented lately among the Estaeada
merchants against certain farm­
ers, who e i t h e r unknowingly
or intentionally were selling eggs
supposedly fresh, which had been
preserved in water-glass or a
lime solution.
As the selling of such treated
eggs is contrary to the pure-food
regulations, all parties are warn­
ed against such practice.
And now we learn that the
Oregon City Woolen Mills, a r e
contemplating doubling the size
of their plant and as the Hawley
Pulp & Paper Compamy a r e
building new additions every few
months, the future prosperity of
Oregon City is assured.
The employees and pay rolls
from those two plants alone, are
sufficient to make a good sized city
so why shouldn’ t Estaeada land
another infant industry, to blend
its morning whistle with that of
the cannery and the soon-to-be-
we-hope cheese factory?
Estaeada has the resources that
attract industries, namely water,
electric power and transportation
but it lacks a little bit in “ pep” .
We Thank You
Here is an easy problem If a
committee of five from the “ Live
Wires” can go before the County
Court and obtain a $3000. road
appropriation, how much can a
committee of eight from the
Farmers & Merchants’ Cl u b
obtain? Why- $4800. of course.

Githens Star Boarder Ousted
John Githens of Currinsville,
who is always telling stories on
himself, is this week telling one,
with his wife as the victim.
According to John, Mrs. Gith­
ens, with her usual open-hearted
generosity, agreed to furnish
board and lodging for a couple of
days to a tramp wood-splitter, who
told a hard luck story one day re­
The tramp, as he turned out to
be, feasted, fed, glutted and
generally so stuffed his stomach
with the good things on the Gith­
ens’ table, that he was found
later in a serious condition, due
to overloading with an unlimited
amount of pork spare-ribs and
other tempting meats, a stomach
ordinarily used to meager fare.
John finally nursed their guest
back to good health, then handed
him half a dollar and a kick in
the right place and last seen, the
pseudo wood-splitter was hitting
the tracks for Portland.
