Common User on : Natron
Cut-Off Is Demanded by

In an answer to be filed with'
the interstate commerce commis

tral . Pacific subsidiary of the
Southern Pacific; rfor :- authority
to, build,, the Natron ,cot-off, the
Oregon, public service , commis
sion calls attention to its pre
rious demand that common-user
priTilegea be allowed 'other roads
over the cut-of f,f and also that the
cut-off be completed within two
Tears.'--" y.. ;',v :?:., v'V
It is the position ojf the Ore
gon commission that the cut-off
would be of little benefit to east
ern Oregon, should lines b5 built
across that region, -unless the
common-user is allowed.
In a committee hearing; here
during the legislature, last winter,

Southern Pacific company, ; point,

reluctant to grant common-user
privleges. and . ;. Wen Intimated
'that the; Southern - Pacific would
not consider binding its pledge
build the cut-off if the Oregon
commission insisted on the com-mon-user.J
He explained that an
agreement could be made where
by trains - from i the east arriving

changes in equipment and crew,

would serve the same purpose- as
the common-user. This would be
a matter of arrangement between

try, education, flowers, grain, are
shown both in picture and in fig
ures. A carefully-compiled series
of tables giving federal and other
Official reports of population, pro
duction, prices and acreage, make
the book a valuable reference vol
um for the busy man's desk. Tax
ation and valuations, wages, labor
statistics, and a full list of all the
manufacturers of Salem, are other
parts of the booklet.
An interesting table shows the
payroll of .the various educational,
state, Indian school and industrial
plants of the city to be $4,412,939
for the year 1922. Ten years ago,
there was hardly enough payroll
to count outside of the state serv
ice. This was the one sreat Sa
lem asset, and everybody depend
ed on that, so that a state elec
tion meant life and death to many
peopled The figure for last year
shows that four Salem industries,
the Kay Woolen mills, the Spauld
ing Logging company, the Valley
Packing company and the Oregon
Pulp & Paper company, paid out
1814,293 In wages, more than the
stae jwas paying1' before the war.
The payroll for the professors in
Willamette university, and the
teachers in the Salem city schools,
and the . Salem Indian : school,
amounts to $315,000. Now, the
state house and. state Institutions
in or adjoining Salem, have a pay
roll of $1.356,000. 1 This is only
30 per cent of the total Salem 'pay
roll. The figures given do , not
include any building wages, or the
railroads, or store or general cleri
cal wages. They are the manufac
turing; industries only.
The; booklets -are to be had for
helpful distribution, andMt Is be
