When the Oregon-Washington
Water Service . company! San
Francisco office ordered all work
on improvements of the Salem wa
ter system to eea?e Tesday, they
may hare played directly Into the
hands of this city's roters who last
Friday expressed overwhelmingly
their desire that the city take over
and operate the water service here.
The municipal ownership charter-
amendment specified that a
bond issue of not more than $1,
100,000 be floated to acquire a
municipal water system. The. IS 29
"book" valuation of the - water
company's property here was 11,-
051,289.38. Improvements which
hare been under way according to
the company's figures would have
Increased that figure to a mark
somewhat above $1,200,000.
City Might Not Have
Had Enouch Funds
Valuations set forth by the
company will not necessarily pre

purchase of the plant: bat It the
company should be able to estab

two years ago the county court
ordered the purchase of a law li

The court directed that the li
brary be placed on the fourth
floor of the courthouse in a va

as the library. Judge L. H. Mc

It's a difficult position for the

not quite sure what he would do.

Whether or not 8. H. 'Van
Trump will continue in the capa
city of county fruit Inspector will
be threshed out at a public meet
ing before H. S. Merriam, mem
ber of the state board of horticul
ture, here. The meeting Is said to
be set for June 4.
The move to oust Van Trump is
the latest of several which have
been made in the past several
years, and is said to have arisen
out of a recent meeting of cher
ry growers to discuss the cherry
fruit fly situation. Failure to
take progressive measures for the
benefit of growers as a result of
the gathering is charged against
the fruit inspector.
Merriam. this district's repre
sentative on the state horticultur
al board, who was in Salem Mon
day refused to comment on the
subject, hut it is reported that at
a recent closed meeting of the
county court Merriam revealed
the plans of the public hearing
called because of the dissatisfac
tion aired against Van Trump.
In the past it has been the cus
tom of the court to appoint the in
spector, but since the appoint
ment is usually made on the re
commendation of the district's re
presentative on the state board,
the court has left the entire mat
ter of advising the official up to
that group. According to the state
law however, the county inspector
shall take his orders from the
county court, but this has net
been the practice because of the
part the state board hag always
