Local Attorney ; Thinks Sa

Frorrj Wells . I '
EDITOR'S NOTE: ;
(The following is an article
contributed by B. ; W. Macy, .'at
torney at law, of Salem, who dis
cusses the water question with
recommendation of wells? ' as a
source of supply. ; r
Qn the front page of the Hol
lywood Press' of the Issue ot Sep
tember - 25,: under the heading.
"Wells .as a Source of Supply
are Proven unsatisfactory"; is; an
article on municipal water sys
tems, which is so full of misin
formation that onn can mot heln
but wonder where thS author got
his f dope", : provided! he obtained
it from any source! other, than
from his . - own 'imagination.
Among many erroneous ; i state
ments found in that article is the
following: " : .1
"There are plenty of cities In
the s country which started with
wells and which later saw their
mistake and switched to gravity
systems. Spokane is one city, if or
instance, which has ; Some ot j its
first wells still In use; as adjuncts
to its main system,! but when ad
ditions are necessary, Spokane
does not dig more wells. On the
contrary. Spokane Is right now
spending millions for additions to
its gravity, system, after having
tried the well system and found
it Inadequate, undependable, and
unduly ex'jTtensive to j operated in
comparison with gravity sys
tem." Having spent twelve ) of the
best years of my life In Spokane,
being . there when three of the
wells were dug, I feel Qualified
tb speak ont the nerlts of Spo
kane's water, and I know I can
(and will terj the truth about it.
I . .... . - . M .
Any; one woo aas uveu u djiu
kane within the past 25 years,
will concur In my statement that
Spokane has better water ; than
any . other large city bn the Pa
cific coast; and every drop comes
from "unsatisfactory, undefend
able" wells. I - i f :
Favors Municipal System ,
As I favoria municipally owed
water system, and knowing What
wonderfully fine water ; isf; fur
nished by Spokane's municipally
owned plant at very i reasonable
rates, I recently wrote to j Mayor
Leonard Funk of " Spokane for
data on its water system. Under
date of August 24, 1 received
from Alex i Lindsay, IsupeHniteii
dent of water, a complete history
of the 'Spokane water sysif m.
with pictures, of thai plant, pumps,
rci'prtnir and a table of rates
charged by the city owned; plnt.
Since 1907. every drop- or wa
ter furnished In ! spoaane nas
come from wens, u spone n
not now, and never has had a
gravity system, aid Is j not spend
ing any money on, one. In the
face of this exnression of the
truth. Just read and consider the j
above quoted article j from the
Press. The Spokane water sys
tem was initiated in 1883 by a
nrivate coSlpany. ; In 11884. the
city issued bonds" and i purchased
the plant. ! Since ;tnat time, an
extensions, , improvements ' and
betterments have beenj paid for
out of revenues from the, system,
including thet original bond issue
with interest! and several subse
quent bond Issues with interest,
wheh were Issued to pay for Sex
tensions and betterments. It can
h trnthfullv said I that the Spo
kane water system, has never cost
the taxpayers of the city a eenu
History of Well Told ;
Up to the year 1907,1 all wter
was pumped irom m apuanuc
river. In ; that year tne j ursi
well 28 feet In diameter was dug.
A test of this well showed that
pumping from it at the rate of
58 million gallons: per i day low
ered the water level Iii th. Well
only 44 Inches. In t910 two
more wells, each 30 feot in piam-
eter, were tdug. In lszsr two
mom wells, each 4 5 leet in aiam-
tr. vr dnr. These! wells ra
only five miles from Howard nd
Riverside, the heart of the city.
The present Installed I pumping
capacity of the Spokahe-, system
Is 154 million gallons! . per day.
The wells have a probable addi
tional capacity of 75 or 80 mil
lion gallons per day. In 1931,
the maximum pumped In any one
day' of 24 hours was 83 million
gallons. , ; - I' ?
The depth of tne weiis is noi
elveh." but it is 85 feet down; to
the 1 water level. The f wells are
dugj down to an- ancient river bed

The fair got off to a good
tart, both as far a weather la
concerned, and as far as attend
ance. - Early predictions were
that the opening day would ex
ceed previous opening days.
Not only are there thousands
of people present, but the are
all over, at the rodeo. In the

j Well, the parade went, as was
predicted, with several - of the
more prominent missing but en

take their places, and it was t
good thing some of the news-
hounds overtrained. One of the
queens mentioned- thrived on
training, as she was seen' leading
the riders. Nice work, Virginia
And the Seaside girls band.
The members not only sound
ed good, but looked good. Hun
dreds who lined the street dur
ing the parade saw several fine
looking young women in the or
ganization who could, easily
compete with the pretty local
horsewomen for queen of the
fair. Better stay longer than

will be shown in the evening. If

vail for the week, the 1831 fair
will set a good precedent. Horse
races and the horse shows will

flow is inexhaustible, and the
temperature' remains constantly
at 48 degrees Farenheit. The
water is , soft'',,; and is unex
celled for domestic use. Their
slogan is, "Spokane's water ia
pure, not purified'. The domesU
tic rates- for water in Spokane
are both Interesting and illumi
nating: The minimum is 50
cents per month for 625 cubic
feet, and eight cents for each ad
ditional 100. cubic feet, or .major
fraction thereof. Less than one
third the rate In Salem.
Salem has at her door, a sup
ply of good water as pure and as
abundant as Spokane's. It was
my purpose tb discuss this source
ot supply in this article, but
space will not permit. The mis
leading article in theTress lm
pelled me to devote more time to
the Spokane system than I had
intended. Next Sunday, I , will
discuss Salem's available sources
of supply, including the much
touted Little North Fork of the
Santiam river. -
