    Ed Dunham Asserts Council
'Ganging Up' On Him
Complaints On Property
E. A. Dunham. Dlonwr property
owner and business man of Klam
ath Falls, told city councilman last
night that It looks as If they ar
"ganging up on nun wmi
plalnu about hit properties.
T-i l. . BntwarMl laxt tlMtllt In
connection with an excavation Job
on his property on Ewauna pouie
vard near the river, which the
council had ordered Investigated. A
few weeks alto, Dunham was at a
council aesalon to discuss complaint
about a partially destroyed house he
owns on Owens street, which uw
council want condemned.
There waa contusion In th coun
cil as to whether Dunham's excava
tion lob waa on Ewauna or Cedar,
but it waa finally agreed that
Ewauna is the street Involved.
Councilman A. P. Condrey opened
the discussion by stating that Dun
ham's workmen had dug dirt from
city property along the street right-of-way
and he recommended that
the owner be made to construct a
concrete retaining wall along the
excavated side of the street and re
place the dirt, also build a fence
alongside the street for the safety
of persons using it.
Dunham arose to comment, that
an even worse condition had existed
for some time at Main and 8econd,
but the council had not had any
thing done about it He also pointed
out that the propertyJie waa work
ing on had previously been a dump
ing ground for all sorts of trash, but
"no one ever complained about It
before I bought it." He asserted that
he had Intended to fence in the
street from the start and also In
tended to replace the earth, and
added that If the council would
wait until he had a chance to fix
It up himself everything would be
all right.
Councilman Paul O. Landry inter
jected to stale that he didnt be
lieve that the street committee had
ever been contacted on the matter
for an opinion and that Condrey
had made his recommendation with
out the aanctlon of the committee.
Condrey replied that he had given
the recommendation as his own en
tirely. Condrey added that he had noth
ing against Dunham, saying. "I've
known him since I was a kid."
Mayor Ed Ostendorf commented,
"He Isnt that old."
Condrey announced, however, that
he would "stick by my convictions.
If one must obey the laws; all
Councilman Landry, upon the sug
gestion of the city attorney, finally
moved that the council protest the
removal of the earth from Ewauna
street and ask Dunham for protec
tion of the city property. The mo
tion carried.
Upon the suggestion of Dunham
the council asked City Engineer E-A.
Thomas to investigate the alleged
condition at 2nd and Main.
The council also Informed Dun
ham that a condemnation hearing
on his house at S19 Owens would
be held at the regular council meet
ing May 19. The building has been
in disrepair for over a year and ac
cording to Building Inspector Walter
Sslsbery. is "a dirty, filthy mess."
E. E. Benner arose at the city
council meeting last night to Inquire
concerning tne council s permission
for the Disabled American Veterans
to iiold a children a health and
beauty contest at the KUHS audi.
tarium. He explained that when he
naa taken tne matter up with Po
lice Judge Harold Franey, Praney
had mentioned having to obtain a
regular snow license. Benner point
ed out that the DAV was a non
profit organization and that the en
tertainment would be entirely home
Benner Introduced Mrs. Alta Bar
bara of Vancouver, Wash., who he
said was helping with the show. She
substantiated tils statements.
Councilman Augus Newton stated
that he believed all Teterans or
ganizations should clear shows
through the inter-veterans council
and the chamber of commerce in
order that everything be agreeable
to them before the permit was
granted. Mayor Ed Ostendorf had
pointed out that the original date of
the child show, June 7. would con
flict with the annual Shrine dinner
lor crippled children.
Councilman A. F. Condrey dis
agreed with Newton, however, stag
ing that the lnter-veteran's council
and the chamber of commerce had
"no bearing on the matter at hand."
He added that what the two or
ganizations thought was none of the
business of the council. The council
granted the DAV the permit
Two letters were received from the
Veterans of Foreign Wars, the first
asked that the mayor proclaim Sat

it waa no longer needed. The
recommendation waa accepted.
The recommendation also asked
that tiie money In a fund to eaulo
