A number of surveyors and a
crewof men are at work at
South Fork. It is currently re­
ported that the P. R. L. & P. Co.
is reviving the project of build­
ing1 a new power plant there,
which was abandoned last year
on account of the war. It is de- .
voutly to be hoped that this sup­
position will prove ,true. Tho it
is not advisable to count chickens
before they are hatched, yet if
the Mt. Hood Loop road comes
this way, and this power dam is
installed at South Fork, Estaca­
da will have a boom of no small
proportions. It looks as if “the
winter of our discontent,“ will
soon be made glorious summer
by the sun of prosperity.
Home Again
Mr. and Mrs. S. Pesznecker
and son ueo returned from Cali­
fornia last Thursday night. They
went in their car with tho Bart-
letts and Sparks, but parted com­
pany at Oakland, Calif. Mr.
Pesznecker says they had a da*
lightful time, visiting at Palo
Alto, Alameda and other points.
He is much impressed with the
California roads, the main ones
being paved. There is now a
paved road from Redding to
Oakland and the state will vote
this month fortv millions for
road purposes. H e. greatly
commended the provision for
cheap amusement, furnished in
the California cities, where there
are numerous play grounds for
chilnren and adults. They came
back by way of Klamath Falls,
Bend and Madras thru central
Oregon, w’here the roads were
rough and dusty. But the only
mishjaps were two blow outs.
He is glad to be home again
though. One thing he noticed
in California was that the water
was very poor. Well heretofore
the Californians did not have
much use for water for drinking
purposes but now they jvill prob­
ably develop this natural product
seeing that their more accus­
tomed beverages have been cut
The signing of peace and the President’s proclamation as to its
significance, which we give below, come very appropriately only a
week before our own National day of Independence. What tip' Dec­
laration ol Independence did for us, the treaty of Versailles with tin*
covenant ol the League of Nations, may in alter years prove to have
done for the whole world.
The treaty of peace has been signed. If ¡1 is ratified and acted
upon in full and sincere execution of its terms, it will furnish the
charter for a new order of affairs in the world. It is a severe treaty
in the duties and penalties it imposes upon Germany, but it is severe
only because the great wrongs done by Germany are to be righted and
repaired; it imposes nothing that Germany cannot do; and she can
regain her rightful standing in the world by the prompt and honor­
able fulfillment of its terms.
And it is much more than a treaty of peace with Germany. It lib­
erates great peoples who have never before been able to find the way
to liberty. It ends, once for all. an old and intolerable order under
which small groups of selfish men could use tin* people of great em­
pires to serve their own ambitions for power and dominion.
It associates the free governments of the world in a permanent
league in which they are pledged to use their united power to main­
tain peace by maintaining right and justice. It makes international
law a reality, supported by imperative sanctions. It does away with
the light of conquest, and rejects the policy of annexation, and sub­
stitutes a new order, under which backward nations—populations
which have not yet come to political consciousness and peoples who
are ready for independence, but not yet quit»* prepared to dispense
with protection and guidance—shall no more be subjected to the dom­
ination and exploitation of a stronger nation, but shall be put under
the friendly direction and afforded the helpful assistance of govern­
ments which undertake to be responsible to'the opinion of mankind
in the execution of their task by accepting the direction of the League
of Nations.
It recognizes the alienable rights of nationalities; the rights of
minorities and the sanctity of religious beliefs and practice. It lays
the basis for conventions which shall free the commercial intercourse
of the world from unjust and vexatious restrictions and for every
soil of international cooperation that will serve to cleans«* the life of
the world and facilitate its common action with benelieimt servic»* of
every kind.
It furnishes guarantees such as were never given or even contem­
plated before for tin* fair treatment of all who labor at the daily tasks
of the world. It is for this reason that I have spoken of it as a great
charter for a new order of affair.
There is ground here for de«*p satisfaction, univ»*rsal reassurance
and confident hope.

The Dover school house was
filled last Monday evening, with
an audience keenly interested in
the Mt. Hood Loop road project.
It was presided over by H. H.
Udell who called on about every
man present to speak and ex­
press his opinion. Nearly every­
one spoke in favor, two or three
offering some objections, but
were apparenty converted. The
paper pledging a special 10 mills
tax was numerously signed. A
gentleman from Portland, Mr.
Magee, a homesteader in the’ vi­
cinity, passed around a letter
he was addressing to County
Judge Anderson on the subject,
in which he promised a donation
of $100 and a like sum from a
lady who owns the place adjoin­
ing his, provided the road went
thru the district. Mr. and Mrs.
H. C. Stephens, S. E. Wooster,
R. C. Deming and the editor of
the N ews formed the Estaeada
Logan Follows Suit
Monday evening the road meet-*
ing in this district, proved some­
what exciting, owing to a differ­
ence of opinion between two es-
umable residents. However
peace was restore»! and those
present came out strongly for
the Mt. Hooo road, and all signed
the roll, pledging themselves to
a special tax, like the other dis­
