At the last moment for filing
J. W. Reed yeilded to the wishes
of his friends and decided to be­
come a candidate for County
Commissioner. It is unnecessary •
to say that this action means a
distinct sacrifice of t i m e and
money on Mr. Reed’s part, should
he receive the nomination. He
is one of the best known men in
the County as a progressive bus­
iness ma n , a successful road
builder and a man of splendid
judgement. He has been Mayor
of Estacada and for many years
school director here. The present
modern school buildings of this
town were largely the result of
his initiative and effort. If nom­
inated and elected he will give to
the affairs of the County broad
and mature judgement and a pro­
gressive activity which will pro­
duce results along the lines of
the greatest good for the entire
We feel certain the people of
this section will get behind Mr.
Reed in a practically unanimous
manner, knowing as they do the
benefit to the County of having
him as a Commissioner.

young boy of 18 years of age,
who was employed at the Dyer’s
logging camp near Barton, was
struck by a small timber while at

a compound fracture of the right
leg. He was promptly brought
into camp, and Dr. R. G. M(,Call
was sent for, who reduced the
fracture and attended to him un-
1 the ambulance arrived from
Portland which took him to rhe
hospital. The young man had
only been working about two
weeks and his home is at Lents
John P. Irvin died at the home
of his son John T. Irvin in Esta­

The local branch of the Eastern
Star, Mountain Chapter No 11)8
was officially visited by the Wor­
thy Grand Matron of Oregon,
Mrs. Alberta McMurphy of Eu­
gene, Ore. last Monday night.
The work was beautifully exem­
plified which elicited some very
flattering enconiums from the
visiting official and others. Al­
though the chapter was not posi­
tively certain until the arrival of
the 4:25 P. M. train, that the in­
spection would be held, yet an
excellent lunch was prepared to

A Barton B ask et Social
At the Barton Hall April 17th.
the annual school basket social
was held. An entertaining pro­
gram had been arranged by the
teacher Mi s s Antonia Liest,
which was very creditably ren­
dered by members of the school
and o t h e r s . Musicians from
Portland added to the enjoyment
of the occasion. Superintendent
Vedder spoke earnestly for the
two mill school tax and aroused
much enthusiasm for the measure
Altho the season was backward
the baskets were adorend with
many beautiful flowers and were
sold at auction. That of Miss
Jessie Odell which represented
an aeroplane sold for the highest
price. The proceeds of the en­
tertainment amounted to t h e
gratifying sum of $121.00.
The California g i r l s which
were advertised to appear in
person, at the Family Theatre
last Tuesday night, did not come.
A five reel feature was however

A well earned promotion has
been gained by Alf Drill at Far-
ady, who has just been appointed
Chief Engineer of Power plants
of the P. R. & L. P. Co. Mr.
Drill has been eighteen years
in the employ of this company,
and for the last nine years Sup­
erintendent of W a t e r Power
Plants known as Station G. Mull
Run, Station M. Estacada, Sta­
tion B. Oregon City and Station
(). Hull Run. He will take up
his new duties at once, which
will necessitate his removal to
Portland, where he will be fol­
lowed by his family after the end
of the school year. Mr. and Mrs.
Drill will be greatly missed here,
as they have lived in this vicinity
for the past fourteen years and
both he and his wife have been
prominent in social and masonic
F. G. Robley who lias been as­
sistant superintendent of water
power plants takes Mr. Drill’s
former position while his succes­
sor has not yet been named.
T h e D enim B rigade
Denim brigades are now the
thing evidently, in the effort to
bring down the high cost of cloth-
ing. Judges are wearing it on
the bench, doctors on their calls,
bankers and cashiers behind the
counter, school teachers in class
rooms, possibly preachers in the
pulpit, merchants and all sorts
and con itions o f me n . We
questioned our mayor whether he
would set the vogue in Estacada
and he replied he had a sort of
khaki suit he wore on his Calif­
ornia trip ami might wear that.
The only trouble is that already
a shortage in overalls is mani­
festing itself and soon they will
be either unattainable or else the
price will soar so that it will be
cherper to buy woolen goods.
The question of high taxes and
i their reason why will be discuss­
ed tomorrow night at 8 o’clock,
by Chris Schuebel and others in
the Family 'Theater.
