mHERE are three reasons
X ipal ownership of her water system and an- extension of
the supply lines to a mountain
with many collateral ones.
First, advertising value.
one would be obliged to make
quality of our water.
Second, more adequate supply and better fire protection.
The city can look to the future. It can build larger mains ;
extend mainsif aster to remote districts in process of growth.
Third, it can getimoney at" a lower rate of interest, and
thus show a profition its investment above what is possible
with a private concern. It can
do away with the cost of pumping, besides getting an m
come from its hydroelectric
from the mountains.
Then there is the matter of going value, or franchise
value. Salem is a growing city. Will be a growing city for
many generations. The franchise or going value will in the
course of years more than justify the municipal ownership.
This will accrue to future generations of residents here, in
stead of going to the stockholders of a private concern. It
increases with every baby born ; with every new resident. It
is a legitimate value; but it should belong to the whole peo
ple who make up the increase, and not to a few people, the
private owners, located here or at distant points.
Any reader can think of a thousand good collateral rea
sons in favor of city ownership of a utility that we must
have; that we cannot get awhg without.

On the other hand, the
the Cuban factories and lands and the refineries along the

foreign trade interests.
It will be a battle royal, and great issues are at stake.
It is the biggest thing in the whole list affecting a better al
location of products of the land, in order to permanently
settle the matter of major farm surpluses, about which we
heard so much in the recent campaign.
It will be hard on Cuba and the Wall street sugar trust,
and on Java ; but the American farmers must win, for they
' stand for what is best for the great, majority of the people
of the United States.
SAYS an exchange : "Canada has slipped one over on the
United States and the world at large by inaugurating pen
ny postage as a Christmas present to its people. Uncle Sam is
losing a good many thousand dollars on his mail service as
it is and probably doesn't feel opulent enough to follow the
example of his northern neighbor. On the other hand if he
would stop paying postage for senators an.4 congressmen on
their campaign literature he would save enough to make up
the deficit."
The above is 'cute as a cynicism. But there is very little
of truth in it. The cost to the postal funds of the United
States on ''campaign literature" of senators and representa
tives is negligible ; a mere bagatelle.
The big cost is the salary list ; and the growth is in the
'increase of salaries. Perhaps they are all justified. Many
of them are, without doubt. 1 A
Probably a million persons in the United States have
the influenza, but the sickness of the king receives more
news space. That may be the correct news emphasis. A
king is more dramatic when fighting for death than you or
I in a race to repel the 'Iflu" bug. No prince has raced to
our bedside and no waiting world seeks knowledge of our
Wyoming or going. Yet life for the ordinary person is prob
ably as interesting as for the king and surely less exacting.

Mr. Tenderfoot, and if we are
going to get any more of it. we
will likely have it in the next two
or three weeks, and It will prob
ably be short.
Here is a tip to the Bitta man,
by a Salem grocer. He ordered
seven sacks of walnuts and fil
berts from a grower, for his store.
He paid the current prices, and
the check was $175.
There are few products we grow
that rnn into money so - fast for
the pound or the bulk. And there
is very little shrinkage. Jike that
of prunes put through the dryers.
And there, is sure profit for the
grower of nuts at present prices;
especially for the grower who has
mature walnut or filbert trees.
Multiply the present number of
trees by 10 and look Into the fu
ture 10, 15 or 20 years, and you
can visualize a vast annual sum
coming to our growers. The fil
bert tree increases its crop fast
after tt is five to eight years old,
and the walnut tree very fast af
ter ten or twelve years. A Salem
district walnut orchard 10 years
old made a gain this year over last
of more than 50 per cent in ton
nage. Salem is the natural walnut
and filbert center of the United
States, and It Is going to become
famous and rich as such. This will
extend to black walnut trees In
the forests and to chestnuts, and
perhaps some other varieties.
The Bits man has this letter:

service was inaugurated during

being made to Include It on var

An important step was taken la
the) agreement between air trans
port Interests and railroad exec
utives to inaugurate several air-
rail passenger lines, at least one
of which will enable a passenger
to cross the continent la two days
and two nights, flying by day and
using the railroad to cover the
less farorable stretches by night.
Equipment used by the lines Is
steadily being Improved and In
several caees there are already in
use multi-engined planes with
heated and lighted cabins, easy
chairs, and many devices to bring
the traveler comfort as well as to
assure him safety.
These planes operate over es
tablished civil airways equipped
with various aids to navigation
such as beacon lights suitably
spaced and marked and lighted
intermediate fields at proper In
tervals. The government now
maintains air routes equipped for
day and night flying, aggregating
about 6,000 miles. Weather fore
casts and warnings transmitted
along such airways by a fast com
munication system enable pilot
to know unfavorable conditions In
advance and to avoid them. Radio

The Statesman has no quarrel
with the owners of the Salem wa
ter system. They are evidently do
ing everything in their power to
rid the water supply of the algal
or vegetable substance with which
it is contaminated. And they no
doubt made a good Investment
when they bought the Salem
water system. And they are entitl
ed to eTery honorable and decent
consideration in the range of
Justice and business fairness.
If the city shall conclude to
own Its Water system, the present
system ought to be bought, and
the owners should be paid what it
is worth; both the physical value
and the going concern or franchise
value. And the courts would grant
them this, according to fixed rules
backed up by a long line of de
cisions. S
But the Bits man believes, for
many reasons, Salem should own
Its water system. He has been in
the fight for this since 1910 and
before. Had the matter been con.
eluded in 1910, when the. people
voted In favor of it, Sale'm would
now be In much better condition.
There would have been a saving of
several hundred thousand dollars
for one thing.

But that is neither here nor
there. This is 1928; another year
will be ushered in next Tuesday.
Every day this Is neglected, the
going concern value will increase,
and the cost to the city will be
that much higher, when a deci
sion Is finally made -for city own
ership. The future Salem will not
be satisfied with anything short of
municipal ownership and a moun
tain supply. Why do we hesitate
and thus pass onto our successors
this higher cost, growing higher
every day? No citizen will feel the
cost of the system. It will pay tor
Itself, and finally retire the bonds
and then be in position for low

might not be long deferred, with
good management.
