    Devoted to the Interests ot Eastern Clackamas County
NO. 42
Below we print a clipping from
the Canby Herald, on the candidacy
of A1 Price as a representative of
the people of Clackamas county.
We have known A1 for a number
of years, and no man in Clackamas
county is better qualified to repre­
sent the people of his district than
he is. One of honor, integrity and
ability, and will fight for the right
of his constituency.
To the older residents of Clack­
amas county the life of A. A. Price,
Democratic candidate for represen­
tative in the legislature, is an open
book, showing his
from young manhood to mature
years; from a position of obscurity
to one of prominence; from com­
parative moderate means to reason­
able affluence, and on no page of
that book is there a line that his
friends would have obliterated. In
later years his counsel and advice
have always been sought in com',
mercial and social affairs of his
home town, Oregon City, and valu­
ed, and his judgment on matters of
importance has been invariably
Should he be elected to represent
the people of this county in the leg­
islature they will have a good lis­
tener and a good business adviser;
a sane, sound and sensible business
man, safe as to our financial system,
reasonable in all requirements, but
unyielding to the demand for pro­
tection to American ideals of right
living. A wholesome man of good
physical proportions. A just and
able and honest man.
A1 Price is not rich, except in
generosity, but his commercial suc­
cess has given him a competence.
The big thing about him is his un­
failing common sense, and his
ability to
others and promptly reach wise de­
cisions out of the conflict of opin­
Those who know him most
intimately thinks he fits the need
of the hour and the position he
seeks upon request of his many
friends throughout the state.
Mr. Price is outspoken relative to
his position on public problems and
he has no hesitation in expressing
himself along these lines either
privately or publicly. He is a busi­
ness man and always deals with
public matters in a business way,
making no attempt to dodge or
straddle an issue. He is a business
man thorough and complete, and
the opportunity to send a real busi­
ness man to the legislature is now
before the people of this county.

Several dogs in this community
were poisoned on Saturday and Sun­
day; whether accidentally or other­
wise it is not known.
However, it was, indeed, sad to
think such a thing should occur, for
if anyone wishes to get rid of ani­
mals there are much more humane
ways than by poisoning.
There is a possibility, however,
that this poisoned food was scattered
about for rats, but if such was the
cae, the owners of dogs should have
been notified.
Some of the dogs died very sud­
denly and no help could be given
them, but the Airdale belonging to

The County Court is rushing work
on the market road between Carver
and Estacada. This piece of road
will be a great benefit to Estacada
as it makes a first class piece of
highway through to Portland and
Oregon City.
Our citizens have Judge Cross to
thank for this road as much as any­
one, as he was instrumental in the
initiation of the plan which has
made it a reality.
A Junior Christian Endeavor was

Editor Eastern Clackamas News.—
I am just advised by the Depart­
ment of Agriculture, Bureau of
Soils, that the Soil Survey of Clack­
amas County, Oregon, has been
completed, and a few copies of this
survey have been assigned to me
for distribution as long as they last.
Just tell your people to write me
for a copy of this survey, and I shall
be glad to forward it promptly.
Most sincerely yours,

You often read in the newspapers

gets in bad with his irate wife when
he attempts to visit “Dinty Moore’s”.
Wei!, Dinty Moore of Eagle Creek is
running a somewhat different place
of business than the Dinty Moore of
eastern fame, but no doubt he is as
progressive, even though not as dar­

place a short distance east of Eagle
Creek stores on the main highway
to Estacada, right along Eagle
Creek, the creek runs right through
the 40-acre tract belonging to Dinty.
About 14 months ago Moore start­

tionery building looks lots better
than it did a year ugo, as Dinty has
put some finishing touches to it
that couldn’t help but spruce it up,
but above all ho has developed a

All the conveniences you could de­

rooms, swimming holes, wading pools
for little folks, fountains, and mind
yon, the water comes from a won­
derful spring, the water of it so good
that people of the cities take some
home in bottles and jars for a treat,
as it is better than city water, so
they say.
Every man, woman and child call­

opened up business his friends p r-

“Dinty” has lived
around Estacada for many years and
is well known. He has always taken
a great part in community enter­
prises and says he’s goin’ to keep
