    City Water System
Improvements Again Halted
The troubles o f the Estacada
city council in obtaining the nec­
essary im provem ent at the intake
of the Estacada water supply,
have again been increased, ac­
cording to M ayor Lovelace, who
now reports that Mrs. Mary
Stubbe, whose land surrounds
the present intake, has within
the past fe w days purchased the
Davis and W ebster tract adjoin­
ing, a part o f which tract the city
had planned to buy, in order to
install the intake on land not
dominated by private parties.
For many years past, this ever­
lasting friction between the City
o f Estacada and Mrs. Stubbe has
appeared more or less a joke and
considered a part o f the penalty
o f being a member o f the city
council, but from now on the
c ity ’s attitude is changed.
There are stringent laws re­
garding municipal water rights
and the obstruction o f same and
the legal rights o f this city are
now going to be exercised.
During these times, when this
city and all others have plenty to
do in aiding the United States in
it ’ s many needs, Estacada has no
time or money to waste in quar­
reling with' a stubborn property
owner, regardless o f nationality,
and drastic action will soon be
underway. __ __

Springwater Voted Special
Road Tax
The N ew s was in error last
week, when it published the
statement that the Springwater
Road District, No. 33, had voted
no special tax at its annual meet­
Since then, a dozen or more o f
that district's loyal taxpayers
have informed us o f our mistake,
as they not only voted a five mill
special tax. but voted it by a
count o f 32 to 8.
This money is
to be expended largely in the
building o f other than the main
travelled highway in that district.
