Organization To Xeep In Close
Touch With All County And
Road Work
Monday e v e n i n g ’ s dinner­
m eeting o f the Farm ers’ & M er­
chants’ Club, at the Hotel Adams
in Estacada, marked the resump­
tion o f the activities o f that local
commercial and development or­
ganization, a fter a summer's va­
I f the energy and enjoyment
expended in consuming the sump-
tious dinner served by Mrs.
Adams is indicative o f the ener­
gy that w ill be put into the work
o f the club during the coming
season, Eastern Clackamas Coun­
ty will be the gainer. *
A portion o f the meeting was
taken up in discussing the finan­
cial affairs o f the club, with all
members present paying up their
25c per month back dues, thus
placing the organization in shape
to meet some o f its obligations.
A committee comprising Dr.
Wells, Dr. A d i i , ’ P. F. Standish,
E. W. Bartlett and I. D. W right
was appointed to stage a series
o f entertainments fo r the purpose
o f raising funds lo r trie club's
work, the first o f which enter­
tainments will take place within
a few weeks.
Questions relating to road im­
provements and the opening up
o f new trade arteries in this por­
tion o f the county were discussed
from all angles, including an out­
line o f work to be taken up with
the county court and county road-
O w ing to the absence o f cer­
tain Barton taxpayers, who are
asking the cooperation o f this
club in obtaining a change in the
road district boundaries in that
community, no definite action
could be taken at this meeting.
The advantages and benefits
to be derived from the continued
work and ^growth o f this com­
mercial organization were pres­
ented and every effort will be
made to . obtain more members
from ail rural sections in this
part o f the county and especially
to obtairt that added tjptapcial
help, which will,-come tirith the
25c per month dues.
The perpetuation and contin­
uance o f the good work o f the
Farm ers’ & Merchants’ Club is
apparent to all, for little devel­
opment can come to this portion
o f the county, unless the taxpay­
ers and residents work together
in some such organization.
Monday’ s m eeting was attend­
ed by only a score o f members,
but the next m eeting which is
scheduled to take place Monday
evening, October 15th should
bring out a representative crowd
and all are asked to make a spec­
ial effort to be present and if the

High School Courtship
Ends in Wedding
Restaurant And Hotel
To Change Hands
Sam Barr, one o f Estacada’s
most popular young men, one
noted as a mechanical genius and
able to forge, braze or rivet to­
gether the most obstinate pieces
o f metal, was forced to seek the
assistance Saturday, o f Guy
Drill, who presides over the
mechanical destinies o f the Esta­
cada Garage and the spiritual
destinies o f the Estacada Christ­
ian Church; — for Sam wanted
the bonds o f matrimony forged,
riveted and fastened in such a
manner, that neither time nor
wrear could rend them asunder.
This action was preliminary to
the final scene in the courtship
o f Sam and Miss Lena Cahill o f
Eagle Creek, both o f whom were
popular Estacada High School
students up to last year, when
Sam graduated.
The wedding was held Satur­
day evening, Sept. 15th. at the
home o f the bride’s parents, Mr.
and Mrs. J. W. Cahill o f Eagle
Creek, in the presence o f the
immediate family, Pastor Drill
The newlyweds returned to
Estacada Monday, where they
will make their home and where
the groom is^ngaged in business
with his father J. V. Barr, al­
though subject to call at any time,
having early in the war enlisted
in the U. S. Artisans’ Corps.
The heartiest congratulations
and best wishes o f all are being
extended the happy couple for a
prosperous and sucessful future.
Within a short time the res­
taurant and hotel business, which
fo r the past two years has been
successfully conducted in Esta­
cada by Mrs. Mary Adams, will
be taken over by Mr. and Mrs.
W ill Delap o f Estacada.
For a time, follow ing the an­
nouncement o f the withdrawal
o f Mrs. Adams from the busi­
ness, it looked as though Estaca­
da would be the loser, for Mis.
Adam s’ restaurant has been a
popular place for the tow n’ s visi­
tors, as well as for many o f the
townspeople, but with the an­
nouncement that the business
will be continued and by capable
and experienced parties, the city
may rest easy on the question o f
where to continue to get good
“ eats” .
Sandy News Discontinues
With the suspension o f publi­
cation last week o f the Sandy
N ew s o f Sandy, Oregon, the
Eastern Clackamas N ew s re­
mains the only newspaper in
Eastern Clackamas County.
The high cost o f materials and
labor is responsible for the action
o f th e Sandy publication, similar
action having been taken ' by
many other small newspapers in
the country during the past few
dinner cannot be enjoyed, to at­
tend the meeting afterwards.
An invitation to spend an e v e ­
ning as the guests o f the Oregon
City Live Wires within a few
weeks is in prospeet for the club
and a big local delegation is
needed at that time, further an­
nouncement o f which will be
uiade later.
