Christensen cf Springwater. To
celebrate the auspicious event,
they kept open house, which was
filled with a number of friends
from Portland, and this vicinity.

proved themselves ideal hosts,
and the guests were loud in
praises of their lavish hospitality.
Just prior to the break up of the
assemblage, one of the guests
Mr. W. F. Dillon of Portland,
volunteered to retie the knot (
which was originally tied twenty-
five years ago in the city of Chi­

ients not only of the heartiest
congratulations but some beauti­
ful souvenirs. T he following
guests w ere present: From

Two Conflagrations
Last Thursday afternoon two
barns were burned down on the
on the faim thiee miles west of
town, of the railroad company,
and managed by Tom Watson.
The origin of the fire is a mys­
tery. Mrs. Watson was in town
and Mr. Watson was at work on
the river bottom, about half a
mile away. In the middle of the
afternoon he noticed smoke issu­
ing from the barns, and hurried
to the scene immediately, but it
was too late to do anything. Un­
fortunately there were twenty
herd of hogs in one of the build­
ings, which lost their lives, and
besides these there were several
pieces of machinery. The loss
was a total one to Mr. W^atson
\\ h eh he estimates at $2,090 he
carryir.g i o insurance, while the
company ha I $500 on the barns.
The company will erect a new
The following afternoon, Fri­
day, about 4 o’clock a barn be­
longing to J. C. Kitching of Cur-
rinsville, burnt down. The cause
of the fire was due to a lighted
ma t c h being dropped. Some
children w-ere playing in the
barn and investigating a rat trap
they lighted a match to’see bet­
ter. 1-n the barn were stored
hay, gr a i n and machinery.
Nothing was saved and no in­
surance carried. A subscription

E&tacada V* Salem
Estacada Hi g h School Base
Ball team lost to Salem High
School in a ten inning game last
Friday, the final score being 8 to
7. The game was featured by
ragged playing on part of both
teams. Lovelace catching for
Estacada, was far below his usual
standard while Smith, inclined to
unsteadiness a t times, pitched
good balis. Estacada was ham­
pered by the loss of E. Hannah,
whose position at first base was
well filled by Dillon. With a re­
arrangement of the batting list,
Estacada would no doubt soon
manifest its accustomed form.

A Foolish And Expensive
Gasoline Bill.
Shall Oregon motorists con­
tinue to pay three-quarters of a
million dollars annually because
of that foolish 56 per cent gravity
gasoline enactment?
The Oregon State Motor Asso­
ciation has inaugurated a cam­
paign against the destructive hill
which through its burden of one
and a half cents on every gallon
of gasoline purchased in Oregon,
is costing Oregon motorists ap­
proximately $750.000 a year.
The repeal of this hill is vital
to the automotive i n d u s t r y .
High-priced gasoline is a bugaboo
which frightens many away from
the motor market, and minimizes
