Crockett of Estacada were instantly killed Sat urday afternoon when their car was struck by a Southern Pacific stub at the Clackamas crossing. Mr. and Mrs. Crockett came to Es tacada two years ago and leased Mrs. Hurst’s residence just across tht bridge from the city limits, on the Springwatcr road. Mr. Crockett was employed as engineer at the Estacada Lumber company plant at Faraday, one and one-half miles from town. Saturday afternoon about one o ’clock they left in their car for Port land where Mr. Crockett had business to transact, the accident happening shortly after two o ’clock. Mrs. Crocket’s pet dog “ Patsy” was in thq car with them and was uninjured. Witnesses were unable to explain how the accident could have hap pened. A freight train had been di vided at the road to permit traffic to pass through. The Crocketts were proceeding toward Portland. The stub train, an engine and caboose, was proceeding smartly on the otheij track, masked from the Crocketts by the freight. The wigwag signl was working, witnesses said. The crossing flagman, was at his post. He shouted and waved his red flag frantically to warn Crockett, but jumped for his life when Crockett, 75 feet from the crossing applied the brakes and skid ded into the path o f the oncoming train. Mrs. Crockett was thrown 150 fee' from the road. She struck on her head. Crockett and his smashed au tomobile were carred 540 feet and his body was mangled. Funeral services were held at the Holman undertaking parlors in Port land Monday afternoon at 2 o ’clocki a large number o f friends being pres, ent. The officers from the Portland Rebekah lodge, of which organization Mr. and Mrs. Crockett were members, had charge o f the services. Final services were held at the Portland Crematorium.

SPEAKER DISCUSSES POLITICAL ISSUES ESTACADA AUDIENCE HEARS JUDGE EXPRESS OPINION OF TWO CANDIDATES Judge John J. Jeffries o f Portland delivered the first campaign speech in the presidential election heard in Estacada this year, Tuesday night at the Liberty Theatre. The crowd was not as large as was expected, but apparently was enthusiastically foi Herbert Hoover for president. Judge Jeffries devoted most o f the hour to the discussion o f the stand taken by Mr. Hoover and Alfred E. Smith on the principal issues in this campaign. Prohibition was one of the subjects wich has been given con siderable thought by the speaker and he called attention to the fact that Mr. Hoover stood for the enforcement of the 18th amendment while Mr. Smith was in favor o f nullification. Judge Jeffries did not believe that the law would be changed if Smith was elected, but said that he was not in sympathy with the law, and that he had always been a friend in New York state to those connected with the business. “ When you send the bootlegger’s best friend out to catch him, there is little chance of his be ing caught,” the speaker stated. Farm relief was discussed by the Judge, who stated that Frank Lowden and Senator McNary were satisfied with Hoover’s stand on this question, and as they are the recognized lead ers o f the farm group, the farmers o f the country should be willing to accept their judgment in the matter. Smith, he pointed out, admitted that he knew nothing about what the farmers needed, nad had no idea of any remedy, but in his acceptance speech stated that he would appoint a commission to make a study o f the problem, which, in effect was going right back to where Governor Low den and Senator McNary had started sixteen or twenty years ago. Smith’s opposition to the present) immigrations laws was also discussed at length. Judge Jeffries spoke in denfense o f the Johnson law and said that >n future the United States should continue to allow only those foreigners who had proven themselves to enter and become citizens of the United States. He said that statis tics show that only 5 per cent o f the criminals in the United States were “ white” American citizens. The records o f the two candidates during the world war were compared, at which time Mr. Hoover served lys country at a salary o f $1 per year, and wag selected by President Wilson to one o f the greatest tasks ever cn> trusted to any man, and that he fuN filled the duties with honor to himself and the nation. The charge that has been made by the democratic party that Hoover set the price o f wheat during the war as answered by a quotation from a speech made by Woodrow Wilson, in which Mr. Wilson had stated that Hoover had nothing to do with the price fixing o f wheat. Quite a large number o f the wom en present were enrolled in the "Hoover for President” club o f this county. SELLS TRUCK UNIT TO HILLSBORO FUEL CONCERN The Cascade Chevrolet company of Estacada ha» installed a dual duty unit on a Chevrolet truck for the Tualatin Valley Fuel company of Hillsboro. The Cascade also an nounces the delivery of a new Chev rolet coach to Bert Lundberg of Es tacada.
