E stacada is growing in grace as it
w ere in the mind of the overworked
professional man and woman.
D uring the , past week "M r. and
Mrs. C. E. Becker, San F rancisco,"
as the Hotel Estacada reveals, were
visitors during Thursday, Friday,
S aturday and Sunday, Mine Host
Moore delivering them at a Portland
hotel during the evening of Sunday,
I t so happens th a t Mrs. Becker is
recovering from a serious surgical
operation, and th a t her husband is
superintendent of the southern divi
sion of the A merican Red Cross
society. W orn out with professional
duties and g rie f sustained in w atch
ing our shell shocked and gassed
soldiers fighting— and losing— their
battle for life, he and Mrs. Becker
sought quiet. By mere accident E s
tacada was learned of and they came
"In all our travels, and we have
journeyed many thousands of miles,"
this couple tells The News, “ we have
never found a spot to com pare with
your beautiful little city? We" have,
as a m atter of course, had more elab
orate hotél apartm ents, more mod
ern conveniences, if you will, but
never has such rare hospitality, such
bounteous good wilf, such a home,
been our good fortu n e. N or have we
ever been closer to n atu re than in
the wild canyons of your neighbor
ing m ountains where, as Mine Host
Moore says: ‘T h’ river runs sta n d
ing on edge.”
Dr. Becker assures The News “ We
are Coming again, and oúr friends
are coming. Also, I shall suggest to
the United States governm ent th a t
some of Ahe nA ney being w asted on
undesirable hospital sites should be
diverted to E stacada, w here we can
have dear old N ature as an ally in
behalf of the poor fellows who gave
th e ir all fo r us and who are spending
th eir last few days at sanitarium s
w here medicines have no ally and
where, as a m atter of cold fact, the
doctor him self cannot hope.”

A nother move forw ard in our civic
ffairs was made when Dr. W. G.

CAN WE GIVE THEM UP
George Fairchild, publisher and
close friend of G eneral Leonard
Wood, advances the interesting th e
ory th a t the United States would
have no rig h t to cut loose from the
Philippines, even if it desired to do
so. Mr. Fairchild aired his views in
the form of a statem en t issued at
W hite Court, where he had gone tc
deliver a personal message of g reet
ing from G neral Wood to President
“ I do not believe th a t under the
constitution congress would have th<
right to relinquish te rrito ry once ac
quired,” Mr. Fairchild said. “ The
islands have been taken over by the
United S tates and we have no right
to alienate them unless it were done
in w ar tim e.”
Mr. F airchild's statem en t was pro
voked by a r inquiry as to w hether
he agreed with Representative Chas.
Underhill (Rep., Mass.) who recently-
called at W hite C ourt a fte r touring
the Philippines and declared th at the
country would n ot be ready fo r inde
pendence fo r m any year* to come.
Here is som ething interesting to
think about. Ju st w here in the con
stitution can you find any provision
fo r giving up te rrito ry belonging to
America and abandoning citizens of
the United S tates?
