The ilate for filing for any of the state or county
offices has past and the mad scramble for votes will be
on from now until after the primaries the middle of May.
There are several candidates for most of the offices, and
no voter should have any great difficulty in finding a
candidate to suit his fancy.
Whoever is elected, things in general will probably
move along about the same, and there will be about the
usual amount of criticism. There is little possibility of
anyone being elected who advocates any great changes
in our system of government and taxation. Reform move

impracticable, they never do a great deal of ham in any

MORE INTEREST IN NEWS WRITING
Seventy men and women of Clackamas county were
sufficiently interested in news writing to attend the one-
day conference held in Oregon City Saturday. Those
who attended were there for the purpose of learning more
about writing news that it may appear more interesting
to the reader.
All ready one can note improvements in the corre
spondence being sent in from some of the country dis
tricts, and there is going to be more improvements. The
newspapers of Clackamas county will be made more in
teresting than ever before. And this means that they will
be of a greater service to the country they serve, and pos
sibly more profitable to the publishers.
Every business enterprise, in order that it may suc
ceed. must keep up to the times. The newspaper business
is no exception. Every newspaper in the county was rep
resented at Oregon City Saturday. Everyone of them are
awake; they are progressive, and entitled to the support
of the people of Clackamas county.
