The following with reference to the
illness of Eepresentative Hayden, is
taken from Monday's Oregonian;
Eepresentative Hayden, cf Benton
county, is at tha Salem hospital and
will probably have a run of typhoid
fever. He will not be in attendance
upon the legislature during the re
mainder of the session. A number of
the members of the legislature have
been ill : since coming to Salem and
the general opinion Is that their ill
ness is due to the quality ot water sup
plied tor drinking purposes. ' Several
of the members, upon the advice of
. ... . - . . . -
their physicians, have abstained from
drinking the river Water unless it has
first been boiled. Mineral water has
a stood sale during the session of the
legislature. Salem's water supply ie
taken from the iiver just above the
business part of town, and there has
always been a great difference of opin
ion as to Its purity. ; Men who come
from Portland and Astoria, where the
water Is known to be pure, agree that
the water here is not fit to drink.
