Meeting of Council

Aldermen to Face Issue
Of Building Anew
Steps in Recent Municipal
Water System Development
December 7: Council votes resolution to follow people's man
date and not offer more than revised for Ore-Ron-Washington
Water Service plant here.
December 15, 1031: Voters authorize f 2,500,000 bond issue
and give large majority to North Santiam as
source of supply.
December 20: Mayor Gregory proclaims election.
Baar and Cunningham retained as reappraisal
January 20: Appraisal of $695,000 on plant here as of De
cember 1, 1031, returned by engineers.
February 1: City council to meet.
Offer to water company as required by city
charter amendment expeted.
Ordinance providing for sale of $20,000 In
bonds expected to be put on third reading and
passed to enable council to test validity of new
charter amendment.
Along the long trail to munic
ipal ownership, the city council
has been marching now for near
ly two years. The next council
session, Monday, February 1, is
expected to bring two important
Junction points up to the council
for decision.
The first is the formal extend
ing of an offer to the Oregon
Washington Water Service com
nanv for its plant-here. The De
cember 15, 1931, charter amend
ment provides that such an offer
must be mad by the council "aft
er the revisal appraisal has been
filed." This appraisal, made as of
December 1, 1931, by Baar &
Cunningham, engineers, is now in
the city's hands and sets a maxi
mum valuation on the plant here
of 1695,000, a drop of $180,000
from the appraisal made as of
August 31. 1930.
Council Expected
To Offer $695,000
If the council is consistent un
der its resolution proposed De
cember 7 by Alderman Sam
Hughes and adopted, the offer to
the company cannot exceed the
1695,000 figure. Under the char
ter amendment the company has
only 20 days in which to accept
or reject the offer.
The eouncil at its next meeting
is expected to have an ordinance
for sale of $20,000 of the $2,500.
000 bonds up on third reading aft
er a favorable utilities committee
report. This ordinance is expected
to carry inasmuch as the proposed
sale of the bonds by the city will
give opponents of the bond issue
opportunity to test the charter
" amendment through an injunction
suit. It was understood here last
week that partisans of the Oregon-Washington
Water Service
company would get the matter
into court. Some aldermen were
hopeful that the validity of the
December 15, 1931, could be car
ried direct to the supreme court
with the facts admitted and the
argument confined entirely to the
Company Virtually
Certain to Refuse
Rejection by the water com
pany of the presumed $695,000
offer by the council appears cer
tain. At no time in the informal
negotiations conducted by the
water company last year, was a
selling figure of less than $1,
100,000 talked by the water com
pany's officials. It is a known
fact that the company paid $868
000 for the system here when it
was purchased from the Wallace-
Park Interests. Extensive addi
tions have been made since that
time and the company's invest
ments increased from $200,000 to
$350,000, depending on the unit
values taken in figuring these im
provements. Before the Baar & Cunningham
appraisal came in last week, in
formal negotiations were being
conducted by members of the util
ities committee of the council
looking to some agreement be
tween the company and the coun-
cil which would make possible
; early acquisition of the water
plant here and the avoidance of
a unit. Tri-Utilities, holding cor
poration which has controlled
through the Federal Water Ser
vice company, the operations of
the Oregon-Washington Water
Service company, has been in the
hands of a receiver since August,
1931. Federal's quick obligations

Politics Bursts From

It is less than a month since

irum me sunny souia wnere uia
Sol was seen at least two days
out of 27 but the time has been
ample to convince political on-
lookers that the governor is far
more than a fragment of his for
mer self. Physically Ms girth has
expanded from a comfortable 40
inch waistline to a bothersome 44
but the added weight gained front
extended illness and convalescence
seems now o detract not a whit
from the old-time charge and
counter-charge which marked the !
Meier administration In 1931. i
As the week closes the dormant
highway commission volcano has
emitted newspaper smoke clouds
and the Inhabitants of this state
again are curious to know wheth- i
er there will be an upheaval or
bimply Internal groanings and
grumblings followed by calm and
without political disaster. ,
Spaulding Absent
From Friday Confab
The warnings came suddenly
Friday when Governor Meier
spent an afternoon with Highway
Commissioners Alnsworth and
Haniey and gave out an announce
ment of a "program" to guide this
vastly powerful group. Salient
points were:
Reduction of 30 per cent In ad
ministrative overhead, proposed
legislative reduction In 1933 of
motor licenses by 25 per cent,
temporary suspension of all super-
hihvv nrnWfs o n rirpnArfnrr of
arrangements for a federal high
way department survey oi ure
gon's roads.
Senator Charles Spaulding's ab
sence was "explained" as occa
sioned by the suddeness of the
Portland conclave. One .who ob
serves how fast men trot here and
yon for a governor and how effec
tively that official uses the long
distance telephone discounts such
an explanation. Rather the the
ory prevails that the trio of Alns
worth, Haniey and Spaulding were
getting nowhere fast and that the
governor chose personally to get
the highway commission started
on some constructive program
rather than continue a policy or
doing nothing.
Doesn't Necessarily i
Mean Spaulding Goes
Does this mean spauiaing is
slated for removal? This observer
thinks it Is not a necessary con-
elusion. Governor Meier has often
expressed the highest regard for
Spauiamg, nas nonorea mm u
a senatorship and with a commis-
slonership and has secretly ap- ,
nlauded that commissioners at
tacks on alleged inefficiency and
his never faltering demand for
economy. A football coach, it may
be remarked, seldom jerks a play
er who is calling the signals and
carrying the ball as the coacb
instructed him when he was sent
into the game.
Yet no .one knows, perhaps even
Mr. Meier himself, Just how long
Spaulding will remain. If he is
still the governor's pet highway
commissioner, he is recalcitrant
indeed with the other members of
the commission. And these other
members-have friends and Spaul-
the- ding has enemies and because of
this the governor may d ueoaims
Spaulding's retention. The longer
he debates Btate-wloe sentiment
for Spaulding grows among gran
gers and the tax reauctiomsis
who think Spaulding the first
commissioner in a decade to call
spades their proper name.
