mill. This operation would pol
lute the water of Mill creek.
The paper mill uses more water
in the. manufacturing of paper
than the. total amount furnished
to the. 2,000 people of Salem by
the Salem Water company
And the paper mill uses the
wate. from Mill creek: It has a
rfght to expect that the water of
Mill creek shall remain unpollut
ed, excepting from natural, causes
at flood times. Clear, clean
water is required in making the
highest grades of paper.
So. if the legislature passes the
bill appropriating $30,000 for a
new industry at the penitentiary,
and that ne windustry is made a
box factory, according to the re
commendation of Governor Oicott
in his message to the legislature
and a box factory making boxes
from the log if. by the wild3St
stretch of the imagination of any
one outside the padded walls, such
an Impossible thing could be im
agined with $30,000
Then there will be injunctions
and mandamuses and actions and
suits to the limit of the resources
of the lawyers, before such an in

And it will be strung out until

Hhat's what you would do if
you owned a paper mill under liek
conditions. That's what anybody
with red blood in his veins and
gray matter in his cranium would
So there is going to be a merry
old time, if that $30,000 bill gets
through, and if the $30,000 in
dustry ever gets to the point of
roiling and ploluting the waters
of Mill creek.

Fruit and Hop Growers
Prepare For Spring Work
The fruit men throughout the
Salem district have been busy
pruning their trees, and the hop
men are preparing to get very
busy in their yards and a number
of new hop yards will be put out.
The fact is, that the country
around Salem in all directions is
up on its toes, looing for favor
able weather, when spring work
will go forward with a rush.
Every man will be at his post,
and there will be more work than
ever before for men, women and
children in the fields and orchards
Bruce Cunningham, of the Lib
erty district, is preparing ground
on his "Sky Line Ranch" five
miles northwest of Liberty for
CO acres of loganberries. He will
also probibly put out several acres
of strawberries. Mr. Cunningham
is a rustler and believes in doing
things on a big scale, because he
forsees great things for Salem and
vicinity. H. B. Woods, a young
and energetic man, has charge of
the ranch and its intended im
provements. The "Skyline Orchard" people
have about finished pruning their
270 acre prune orchard. Every

and Mcltride concur.

while Brake struck Dubinsky over
