Current Trivia Bit: The [Oregonian] editorial concluded: “That there was no more than one bid for Ross Island and Sellwood was not the fault of the commissioners; that they let contracts for them, without competition, is their fault and their responsibility.

Although ultimately acquitted, all three commissioners were recalled from office in a special election in May 1924.
