Mon tlian luiU'the city is destitute of j
water, for use in ca-e of a tire. Hand !
engines cannot take water from great ,
distances and play effectively upon a
tire. House after house on Piety Hill, .
or iu the central part of the city, might .
burn while tin1 llreiuen, for want of;
water, might look i lly on, entirely
without power to help.. Wc doubt if
there is any locality siillh-letitly (.np
plicd with water, for a sudden eun r
gency. This U something for our pe
ple, andesfHH-ially ottr t'ooncllmcii. to
think ot. Xo public monies can be j
better expended than lu adding to tlie i
means of protected ion against tire ;
and yc 1iom- o see a liberal policy, in
this direction, inaugurated at once.
Tlie projiofition that the city of
Cortland slmll buy the ground along
the river between Washington and
.Morrison streets the burnt district- -is
mooted, by the papers. Tbeii
seems to be a strong sentiment in favor
of making an open levee of this part of
the city front, since tlie buildings bare
been removed by lire. The attempt
was made several yea is ago, by the city
to hold this same ground for a public
levee, but private claimants after long
and costly lawsuits, secured title, and
covered it with building-. Tlie city
front was thereby spoiled, much to the
regret of all public spirited people.
The city has not a loot, of open levee
except it may le the length of a block.
I at the upper end, where it is really not
j much needed. II ought to secure this
property now, if txis-dble and tlin; have
j at least one front door.

DEATH OF FATHER WALLER.
Rev. Alvin F. Waller of Halera dejiarted
tliis Ufa at his home, at 5 o'clock a.- .,
Thursday Dec. 2tith, 1872, at the age of
nearly sixty-five years, of heart disease.
Father Waller was a man whose works
were stamped upon tlie communities in
which he lived, by a virtuous life, good
deeds and a strong, self-reliant cliaracter.
Few men among ns. falling awav from tlie
living throng, oould have left sueli a void in
the community as does, the death of tins
revered teacher, dear friund and valued
neighbor. Salem mourns truly and deeply
to-day the toss of one of her best and oldest
citizens, and tlie church of which he was a
member throughout the (State bow in deep
amicuoQ nnder. the blow widen takut
away a pioneer misstonary, a zealniu
preacher, a faitliftd pastor, a safe counsel
lor, and true brother and friend.
Father Waller was horn in Bergen, New
Tork, in May 1H0H, nf a staid, sterling and
highly ruspvpted family. He entered the
ministry whilo yet quite young, and was for
many years a circuit preacher of the Gen
esseo Conference, "New York. Leaving
that field of labor, under tlie promptings of
a courageous spirit and strong desire to do
somo greater work for his Master tlian
seemed possible in that region, he came to
Oregon with the Misatonarv re-inforoement
which loft New York eity October h IH,
in the ship Lausanne, and arrivrd is tlie
Columbia Iiiver May 20, 1S40.. He was
looii stationed at Oregon City as a mission
ary laborer among Ht Indians, where he
1 remained thro or fimr years. He was next
stationed, at tlie Dalles as missionary
among toe w asCopon Indiana. He remain
ed there tQl Hie breaking out of the ('ayuse
war. 145. With others wreacaped the fate
of the Whitman famUv, he came to tlie Wil
lanettoyaliey. . His famdr home has since
that penodboeaat oalem. For many yean,
boweveti b continued in the labors of a eir

workers is the founding of the Willamette
University, and Jor twelve or more Tears,
emUug with atio beginning of his last" sick
neas, lie was-one of the leading spirits and
most indefatigable laborers in the support
and budding wp of that institution of learn
seeine H established on a sound and perma
nent basis. To him more than any other
man belongs the credit ot the erection of
the magnificent V structure in which tlie
school is carried on. Wiilioathis indomitable
cuwragw and awver-fltggins perseverance,
we doubt if the fund tor its erection oould
have been raised in tmiep or thrice the
time. Ho was aeknawied by all to bo, pre
eminently, the right nan in the right place
for such a work. The building and the
school stand a a aosament to his memory
prouder and more enduring with this peo
ple, than 1k laurel of the conqnerer of a
hundred, battfe fields. His labors deserve
tliat h name suonklhe chiseled in a tablet
to be set in the solid walls, to stay tbsce
while tlie building shall stand. Though

Fifty-one shares of the capital stock

Is understood tliat eight were reserved,
for Schuyler Colfax, who will be In
vited to assume tlie editorship. Reid'
was requested to remain. . but it Is an
nounced that immediately on mak
ing Uie sale he tendered his resignation
as acting editor-k-tileL He also de
clined to remain editorially connected.
Other resignations from the staff have)
since been tendered. " Orton then re
quested Reid, as a personal tavor, to
remain in cnarge lor a little time, con
tinuuig the policy unchanged. H
consented to remain tlie present week.
It has been for 4S hours uncertain to
which side the sale would probably lie
made. Tlie majority of tlie trustees
who desired to continue tlie paper on
the basis of (Jrecley's card, with Reid
at Its head, needed only IS shares ot

oneredto buy these at $10,000 per
share, cash, or at a considerably larger
price, but Sinclair had secured enough
of tliein to prevent him from making up
tlie number. Reid and Hay offered fciu

theCiark estates which he controlled.
All tlie oUier trustees insisted tliat Sin
clair was bound, under tlie by-laws ot
tlie Association, to sell to them before
selling at the same price to any outside
party. Sinclair claimed that lie wa
under obligations to others which lie
could not dlscliarge save by complet
