"Walla Walla Is to s)end some
thing over SU.itt0 in paving its main
business streets, and will put them in
absolute mud-proof condition." said ,
Mayor Hunt, of Walla Walla, to the'
Oregon Dally Journal yesterday I
There does not seem to be much do- J
ing in the way of street railroads
there although several companies
hold franchises As a result, we are i
not interested in the railroad ques-1
tion to any great extent, but we will j
put the city in good shape and walk.
Walking is all right when streets j
and sidewalks are in good condition."

Silent Regarding Water.
For months there has been a scan
dal over the municipal water supply '
of Walla Walla, but .Mayor Hunt re
fused to discuss this question beyond
saying the city needed and must have
additional water. He would make
no accusations against former mem
bers of the council, although newspa
pers have not hesitated to make open
"The question of paving the main
streets of Walla Walla has been be-
fore the council for many years." saif'
Mayor Hunt, "and there has been di-.
versity of opinion. Now it has been t
decided to prove them. We have not '
yet fully determined upon the m-'
terial that will be used, but I do not 1
expect it will cost less than JlOo.iW '
It is something that has been badly j
needed for years, as in spite of every
thing that can be done, at certain sea- i
sons of the year, mud will accumulate !
in large quantities. '
"Almost everything under the sun i
except paving has been tried. Ma-
cadam. crushed rock, scraping, sluic
ing all these things were resorted to
but in no case has the result been j
what was hoped for Now it is pro- j
posed to make a lasting improvement ,
and one that will put the streets in
excellent condition all the year
Prolonged Absence of Weiser Prose

The Signal has refrained from public
mention of the case hoping for a sat
