might get out to places where the editor and his methods
were not understood. Take this item, clipped from this

If there are “hundreds of such cases” in the county,
in a week, the News wonders what is to become of the
county. This statement is probably as near true, at that,
as the rest of the malicious statements made by that paper
in regard to the county court and county officers.

common a century ago vents his wrath apparently to his
complete satisfaction.
Constructive criticism of public officials is always de­
sirable, but when criticism has but one purpose and idea in
mind, and that destructive, it, in time becomes disgusting.
The county officials have looked upon these attacks
with silent contempt, and so have the newspapers of the
county because the source did not warrant consideration,
but there should be a limit some place. And when libel­
ous attacks on the county as a whole are made, that should
be the limit.
However, if the county officials become as “rotten”
as the Banner Courier, the News would favor recalling the
last one of them.

Everything is moving along fine for the biggest cele­
bration that has ever been staged in Eastern Clackamas
county. Additional entertainment features are being ar­
ranged daily, and the committee is now assured that every­
thing will work out in fine order, with the possible excep­
tion of the parade. The list of the business firms which
have pledged floats will be published next week, and it is
hoped that others will decide to enter.
Estacada cannot afford to fall down on this partic­
ular part of the day’s program. This is the one event that
offers the business firms of the city a chance to get them­
selves before the public, and to really derive some bene­
fits from the big undertaking. Every firm in town should
get up a nice float of some description. The people will
not expect to see the expensive floats here they saw in
Portland last week, but, nevertheless, they can be inex­
pensive and interesting as well.
Few of the men engaged in business in Estacada are
members of the band or the celebration committee. They
have not been asked to give their time to the hard task of
working out the details and plans of the day’s entertain­
ment. In most cases the most that is asked of them in the
way of helping arrange the program is to enter floats and
if they do not take enough interest in their home com­
munity to do this, it certainly will be discouraging to the
committee, to say the least.
The Estacada celebration is well advertised. It has
been given a lot of publicity in the Portland newspapers,
and especially the Telegram. There will be a large crowd
in town that day. It is necesasry that we put over a big
show. Failure would be something the community never
could live down. And the band and the committee are de­
termined that it will be a big show. And the small part
asked of the business firms, the News believes, will be
