Mrs. Saylor who has spent
sometime in Corvallis, left this
week for her home in Portland.
Miss Lizzie Kester is lying

Among Corvallisites returning

Mrs. Harper and Mr. and Mrs.
E. C. Hayward. .
There were 75 passengers on.
board the excursion train leaving
Philomath for Newport Sunday.
Twenty five went from Corvallis.
There were 130 when the train
gulled into Yaquina.
: With Engineer Miller's prelim
inary survey and estimates before
them, Corvallis citizens now know
what mountain water will cost, and
are consequently in position to say
whether or not they can afford it.
They never knew before. Was it
not a good thing to-get the survey?
Considerable property has been
changing hands in the southwest
ern part of town. Mrs. Rosendorf
has purchased the three lots adjoin
ing her residence , property on the
south ; while R. C. Wills has pur
chased a triangle tract of land near
the Herbert hpme. on which he is
to build a dwelling this summer.
A turn for the better has ap
peared in the case of Mrs. John
Rowland, who has been suffering
for two months with typhoid fever,
and she is well started toward re
covery . Mr. Rowland wants
mountain water in order to make
sure of avoidance of future attacks
ef the sort; and he expects, he says
to vote for it, if it is the last vote he
The funeral of the late Rev.
Thomas Starns occured Saturday at
ten o'clock from the First Metho
dist church. A profusion of beaut
iful flowers adorned the altar and
covered the casket. , The choir
rendered three hymns,, and Rev.

of the departed, delivered the ser
mon. On the rostrum were. Rev.
Feeseofthe M. E. church, Rev.
Noble of the Baptist, Rev. Bush of
-the Presbyterian, Rev. Jones of
the Christian, Rev. Reeves of the
M. E., South, and Rev. Belknap,
all of whom took part in the ser
: vice. Interment was in' Crystal
Lake Cemetery, where the newly
rounded grave was literally buried
under choice roses, vines and other
One of the events of Com
mencement, Saturday's Times fail
ed to mention. It was the senior
play at the Opera House Tuesday
evening. The production - was in
every respect creditable alike to the
players and to Mrs. B. W. John
son, under . whose instruction the
play was staged. All of the parts
were well sustained, especially for
1 large number of amateurs on the
boards for the first time, but Karl
Steiwer, in particular, as a German
music teacher at a girl's boarding
- school was decidedly happy and
effective. Another character es
pecially well rendered was Bush
Davis in the role of a young man
masquerading as a boarding school
girL As a whole the play was one
of the best and the production one
f the least amateurish the seniors
tvc cvci given.
Dr. B. A. Cathey made a busi
nees trip to Summit Monday.
W. S. McFadden has been a
Junction City visitor the past few
Misa Maud MoBee, of Albany,

aed 17,oco pounds of iron casting?.
The system will be able to delivr
the water to the consumers at a
pressure head of about 2 jo feet and
is sufficiently extensive to cover the
whole built-up portion of the city.
The net work of pipe is so arrang
ed ttat a double circuit has been
obtained throughout nearly the
In this system when finished, the
city of Corvallis will have a water
system second to none in the Wes
The cost of the proposed works,
exclusive of right of way, which at
present I have no means ol ascer
taining, would be as follows:
Headworks on Bock creek S 500.00
dealing and grubbing 1.390.00
Steel and wood pipe 33,50.40
Gates, all valves & overflows 950.50
Btundard iron castings 320.00
Fig lead and oakum 430.00
Pipe laying 1,807.82
Hauling of materials 1,900.00
Excavation andj back filling 10,200 00 50,952.72
Beservolr on Baldy Butte 2 500.00
13, 1-8 miles ol dlst. system 17.025.00 1 9,525.00
Add 5 per ceuk englu'g. plans
From the. preliminary survey
maps and profiles have been made
up so that it was poesible to make a
fairly close and accurate estimate
of the cost of the construction work.
Tie surveyed line can be revised
and improved somewhat at several
point3 along the pire line, and
thtrtby. a slight reduction in the
cost of the construction made, bat
the savicg, as a wLo e, would not
be sufficient to materially chanee
the present estimate.
REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES.
Assuming that the city has a pop
ulation of 2,5ao inhabitants, and as
earning five persons to the house,
which is the customary ttandard
used would give us five hundred
Louses with an average rate of $ i.25
cents pr month from each house,
which is a very reasonable tax
This gives us a revenue of $7,5ao
per annum. The operating expen
ses of the gravity system should
not exceed $l,2oo per annum, hence
Bev. from Water consumers $7,500.00
Int. of 6 per cent on $75,000.00 $3,750.00 -Operating
expenses . 1,210.00 4,950.00
Net income to the city per annum $2,550.00
In addition to this the city would
obtain revenue from the Agricultural
College, public institutions and the
town of Philomath that would in i
my judgment amount to not less
than $l,5oo and as the growth of
the city continues the revenue from
the sale of water will correspond
I may mention that if the pro
posed works are undertaken and
carried out in a first-c!aa3 manner,
as outlined in this report, your city
will have a modern water system,
that will never fail to render the ser
vice for which It is intended.

Engineer. Miller was called to
Independence yesterday to attend
a meetine of the Citv council there
last night with reference to a grav
ity water system. 1 he town has
authority to issue $45,000 in bonds
for the purpose, and it is possible
that Mr. Miller may be retained to
make a preliminary survey and es
timate. The preliminary survey and
estimate for the water system cost
$655, ani tne suni has been paid. !
A number of citizens borrowed the !
money at the bank and paid the en
gineers off Monday. It the bonds
are ordered sold, the citizens will
lose nothing, for the survey will bej
paid out of the proceeds of .the
bonds. But if the system is not
built, the citizens will have the
cost of the survey to pay. Those
who borrowed the money
are: P. Avery, S. L. Kline.
R. H. Huston, E- P. Greffoz, P.
M. Zierolf, Wm. Bogue, F. L.
Miller, A. Rennie, J. R. Smith, B.
W. Johnson, Thos. Leese, J. M.
Nolan, B. Woodward, E. E. Wil
son, B. F. Irvine, E. R. Bryson.
A. J. Johnson. Virgil E. Watters,
Hollenberg & Cady.
Ought a few citizens be com
pelled to borrow money to pay for
the preliminary survey and esti
mates for the water system? Are
only the few citizens to be benefit
ed, or is every home in town to
share in the benefit ? Since all
share the profit, all ought to help
pay by an appropriation from the
city treasury. That, however,
cannot be done so long as the in
junction . pends.
