Burglars anu Footpads. It seems
that Portland is not the only locality
infested with these dangerous mem
bers of the San Francisco 'fraternity. "'
Oregon City has got 'em and the En
terprise tells of it this way: "The low
rates of fu-e between San Francisco
and Portland is filling our state with
the scum "of the golden state, and it
behooves our citizens to keep an eye
on their valuables and be prepared
ivirh firearms for the midnight visitor.
Several robberies were committed in
this vicinity last week. Last 'Thurs
day a man named Hodges, living on
the Sandy, was coming to this city and
a couple of road agents stopped him
near the Clackamas bridge and went
through his pockets and got 200. On
Friday morning about four o'clock, a
burglar visited the residence of Mr.
Hadaway, foreman of this office, but
making considerable noise, aroused
the host who routed him out. Satur
day evening while air. Stevens, agent
at the depot, was at supper, some of
these scoundrels broke into the oifico
nid took 29 95 out of the till. This
robbery w;is perpetrated in oxen day
light, while people were passing by,
aud it muss have been a desperate
character who took such chances. The
entrance was effected through the
window on the south side of .the
building, in plain view from the resi
dence of air. William Eudey."
