company expressed surprise that
a copy of his letter dated De
cember. 17. IS 30. refusing the
city's offer for the plant, had not
been received. Upoa .tracInj;-tho
matter It was discovered that the
letter had reached Mayor T. A.
Livesley who had neglected to
forward It to the city recorder.
4 Elliott said he was stm hope
ful that by some means 1 the ae-
oulsltlon of the plant by the city
could be carried through without
expensive 1 and extensive litiga
tion. He said his company felt
that there was . considerable
doubt about the legality of the
charter : amendment of May 16.

Elliott declared that the wat
er business, along with other
lines. Is suffering somewhat front
eurtallmeat of output. Aa gross
has declined in ' various systems,
operating expenses have been cut
a parallel amount, he said. Bus
iness In Salem Is much above
that in other cities, Elliott com
mented, . saying that the capital
city was one. of the least effected
by business depression of any he
had seen. "You have a steady
payroll which means a great
deal." he I said.
The text of Elliott's letter to
the mayor and the council fol
lows: I . . .
"We have received your com
munication of October 30 in
which yon make a proffer of
