There was a good audience assembled

Salem Ilon Works. Through the
courtesy of Mr, Ilolman. foreman of
these works we were yesterday xhown
through this establishment, owned by
Bw F. Drake ot this city. The im
pression seems to have become spread
abroad that Salem was behind hand In
tlie manufacture of steam machinery
but, judging from appearances around
these works this Impression should be
dispelled. Mr. Drake has just com
pleted an engine for Davis Bros, of
thirty horse power which in style of
finish and durability of material and
workmanship cannot be excelled by
.' any factory on tills nortlicru coast, lie

planing mill that answers the wants of
the people in uregon iar oettcr man
that of Eastern manufacture, from the
fact that it can be arranged to do al
most any kind of work, in a manner
excelled by no other machine. The
cost of the machines is also much re
duced.. Several of them are in use in
, different portions of the State, anil
they give eeneral satisfaction. These
works were burned to the ground some
time since, but have been rebuilt, and
are now turning out a large amount ot
work of all kinds. They keep from
fifteen to twenty men constantly em
ployed, and engage only the best work
men. Mr. Hoi man is considered one
ot the best machinists in the State, aud
Mr. Atkinson, his moulder, won't

Moke Hose Needed. In conversa
tion with some of our leading firemen.
we And there Ls a great demand for
some new base for the use of tlie de
partment. The city now has Iwogood
-lire companies the members df which
are of the hc-st material, and men who
are ever ready to dp their utmost when
there may be occasion for tlielr ser
vices ; but they often find themselves
crippled ty the scarcity of hose. 'We
are liable to the loss of considerable
property at any time, unless tills want
Is supplied, itoth companies com
bined have now only about four hun

from Court to State street. Now
should a fire break out two or three
blocks from any avadable place of
securing water, our engines would
prove of no use, whatever, and life and
property would be much endangered
This shouiu not be so, and we feel as
sured that when our citizens realize
how matters stand, steps will be im
mediately taken to remedy the evil.
At the very least figures this city
should own thteen hundred feet of good
hose. This would give each company
seven hundred and fifty feet, so that
when needed they could play on a tire

are stationed. It is not often they

and are ever ready to do their duty as

bose companies to get up an entertain
ment of some kind and aid themselves
in this work. Amusements are scarce
just now and a ball, festival, or ama

crowd, and outside talent would aid

Badly Frozen.- R. H. Price of
this city recently received a letter from
some brothers of his living np in the
Paiouse valley abve Walla Walla W
T. giving a detailed account ot a trip
they took during the recent cold spell.
They started early in the morning to
go to their mothers about twenty
miles distant. A snow storm overtook
them before they bad gone any great
distance, but they pushed on thinking
they would be able to get through
without any great difficulty. Taking
no food with them, as they supposed
they would find a supply on the road,
they soon began to suffer from both
hunger and cold. But they plodded
on until twelve o'clock the following
night when the older one gave out.
Tlieu pulling oft their boots they both
laid down in the snow which they found
over three feet in depth. Awaking
the following morning they were com
pelled to cut their boots and tie them
on their feet, and with renewed cour
age they again faced tlie storm and
, though frequently falling from sheer
extaustton, they perservered . aud
finally reached their destination at
eleven o'clock the following morning,
not having food since they started out,

The-Couet House Foundation.
.. .. .. . .
We notice that tlie foundation of this
building is only laid about one foot be-
s low the surface.' From what we can
hear, buildings built In this way are
very apt to settle, and ruin the whole
structure. The M. E. Church has set
tled ii one spot already, and the walls
are only completed a very small way
up. The contractors on the Sisters
School house have prepared a seven
foot foundation tor their tmilding. and
. we should think tliat a public building
which Is to stand Tor years should have
- equally as solid a foundation. Nearly
all tlie brick walls in Salem are cracked,
. a fact which shows that shallow foun
dations are unsafe. A building so ex
pensive as toe court 'house ought to
nave solid foundation walls not less
tlian eight or ten feet deep. Tlie best
