WATER SOURCE I
WEI1S IS TALKED
Bert Macy Points io Great
Success of System
I At Spokane
That! Salem ought
studies ; as to the possibilities of
wells as a source for the city's
water supply is the belief; of Bert
W. Macy local attorney, who' has
just received from Spokane litera
ture descriptive of their well sup-
'Since 1907 Spokane has ob
tained its water from wens lo
cated In the floor of the Valley
a few miles above the citylp Pri
or to that time the Spokane! river
was the source of supply. The
wells are dug wells located in the
glacial gravel which fills theval-
ley. The ultimate source of the
f ow ot water is the r northern
One of the Spokane wells is
28 feet ia diameter., the other
two 45 feet each: JThe water
stands at about 65 J feet below
the surface. The supply of water
seems Inexhaustible because In
pnmping from the small well at
the rato of 56 million gallons a
day the draw-down was only 44
' Spokane uses as its slogan for
its water supply: "Spokane Wa
ter. Pure Not Purified." The
water is pumped direct from i the
wells into the mains and storage
reservoirs. The glacial deposits of
course act as a natural filter.
Rates are extremely low for serv
ice too, being minimum 80c with
1000 cubic feet (7500 gallons)
per month, and over that , eight
cents for each additional 100
cubic feet 7750 gallons).
"It is generally r believed by
geologists." said Mr. Macy. "that
the old course of the Santlam was
along the present route of Mill
creek. The soil of the valley along
(he gap in the hills and up to
ward Turner is gravel filled. I
believe . the city might well sihk
a test well to see if there Is an
underground flow of water there.
If found we could get better wa
ter and save the tremendous cC;st
of either a pipe line up the San
tlam or a filtration plant here.
The matter should be studied far

reason of his" age and senile dis

HE ARE ALLEGED
BAD CHECK AUTHORS
Justice of the Peace Hayden
was on the trial of N. S. IVcbeck
passes yesterday and three viola
tors of the law felt thai reach of
its tolls. " , l
S. Tamiya&u who lives in the
Lake Labish district, was released
without fine after agreeing to pay
court costs of $4.60, the consta
ble's mileage costs and the $16 to
reimburse the receiver of an N. S
F. cheek for that amount.
H. A. Kroska of Salem asked
i for 24 hours in which to enter a
plea on the charge of Issuing a
check without sufficient funds.
His bail was set at $500. Unable
to furnish it, Kroska rested last
night in Jail.
W. A. Halm came Into court of
his own accord and said he had
issued a check for $3.50 but de
clared he did not know he lacked
sufficient back fund to cover the
charge. He was released until he
could, be given opportunity to
make up the deficiency.

concerning the progress of the

'by the school board. ' ' ;
"We haveJ been considering the

feel .that a survey will need to
be made toj" Bhow the trend of

these tacts we cad determine our
building needs. A farge. univer

that the Roso City ! has profited
materially from" the services of an
Investigator . employed a number
of years ago. Almost invariably
her recommendations were fol

recommendation . she feels was
