A resume o f the 1915-16-17 live­
stock shipments from Estacada,
covering the first three months
of each year, show that the past
quarter has been lowest o f any
since the Estacada Stock Yards
were installed.
During January, February and
March o f 1915, six carloads com­
prising 401 hogs were shipped.
During the same period in 1916,
seven carloads comprising 618
were shipped, but during the
past three months, but five car­
loads went forth, comprising 360
These figures do not cover the
shipment o f cattle or sheep, al­
though no separate carloads o f
these animals were sent out, but
carloads o f hogs and cattle were
There is just one apparent rea­
son for this falling off and one
which is noticeable throughout
the northwest, namely the high
prices paid for pork within the
past year, have drained the supply
o f breeding stock and the future
outlook is far from pleasing
Locally, it has been too much
temptation for the farmer to sell
his brood sows at the high prices
current, which will result in a
shortage of stock in the future.
Again, the high prices prevail­
ing for any kind o f hogs, has
brought good returns for the sale
o f grade and low bred hogs and
if the farmers will reinvest their
money in better grade animals,
ultimately more good will result
than harm.
In the current issue o f the Or­
egon Voter. State Master Spence
o f the Oregon Grange has present­
ed some so-called radical views
respecting the w o r k i n g s and
members o f the last legislature.
But some o f the Cascade Coun­
ty adherents thoroughly agree
with his views, especially when
in speaking o f Gus Moser, he calls
him “ Mush Gosher” and says the
main q u e s t i o n with him was
“ What effect will my vote have
on my political aspirations?’ ’
In speaking o f Vernon Forbes
o f Bend, he calls him "Venom
Probes“ and terms Conrad Pat­
rick Olson as “ Oilie Patterson’ ’
and in answer to the question,
“ W+IT is the legislature a fail­
u re'' - says “ Because it is not
representative, but is bullied and
brew beaten, and pulled hither
and yon by big lobbies and pow­
erful interests” etc.
A cry has gone up from the Or­
egon City Commercial Club and
the anglers’ organizations in the
lower end o f the county, asking
for the appointment o f a game
warden for Clackamas County.
That such a cry should be made
is proper, for since early last Fall,
this, the next to the leading coun­
ty in the state, in point o f income
derived from sale o f licenses and
and in miles o f fishing streams,
has been without a warden.
At that time, owing to lack of
funds. Game Warden, Ben S. Pat­
ton o f Estacada was temporarily
laid off, but the suspension was
not made known generally, ow­
ing to the effect which it might
have on game law violators.
During a recent talk with State
Game Warden Shoemaker, the
editor learned that the reinstate­
ment o f Warden Patton was to
take place about May 1st, but
with the opening o f the fishing
season April 1st, the reappoint­
ment should occur not later than
that date.
As to the qualifications o f War­
den Pattorr, there are few people
in this county who do not feel
that, he is especially fitted for the
work and will welcome his early
