This upplies to every citizen in this city, that city and every
other city in this land. Any community o f people worthy o f hold
ing a charter to conduct such an organization and wherein not
enough pride is displayed to see to it that their cit£ is not kept as
a whole as presentable to thu eye as their own home, had better
not undertake to run a city at all for they are making an ugly blot
upon what nature made beautiful before. What is meant is, that
the streets of Estacada should be kept clean, no unsightly refuse
or rubbish should be allowed to accumulate, sidewalks should be
kept in repair, all alleys and vacant lots not made a place for
dumping offensive garbage
ramshackle shacks should be torn
down or repaired, painted and made presentable, store fronts
should be kept clean and show windows in .so far as the owner or
occupant has talent and art made attractive to every passerby.
Nothing so impresses a stranger visiting the city as a proper atten
tion to all these details on the part o f the citizens and business
men. And it is just as easy and as much a matter o f good taste
to keep our streets presentable by a display of civic pride as it is
to keep one’s person so that he is not ashamed of himself. The
tourist season of 192(5 is approaching and indications are that it
will be geater than any preceeding years. The city of Estacada Is
beautifully located among the hills, easily reached from Portland
by only about an hour’s drive. It has a good hotel, a fine park for
picnic purposes, some excellent fishing may be had in the vicinity,
and there is no valid reason why we should not welcome very
many people during the season. For that reason we would urge
upon every resident to rouse his civic pride, put his own place In
proper order and co-operate with the city officials to see that this
municipality be put in such splendid shape that all will fesl a just
pride in it themselves, and that the stanger and visitor who comer
once may come again and carry away with him u picture o f the
clean, progressive and not soon to be forgotten community. We
shall find it to be a paying investment.
