In West Salem
Salem, Or.. Apr. 15.-A11 West
Jm that Is not talkin about politic
I rood ror.ds Is discussing tho prob
ta of housing the many people who
-eking homes In that suburb of
f capital city situated on the west
of the Willamette river. In years
" , 4lem people imagined that West
jB was too remote from business
'ZZnt of the city to make a desirable
!?, locality and comparatively few
S5i who worked in the city proper
for home there. But with the
OPletion of the new bridge condi
ons have changed. Houses .are scarce
and applications for homes are
laming more and more numerous.
Ituation seemed in some cases un
til few davs ago when it became
inown that a party had purchased one
hundred lots within the corporate lim
iu of the city of West Salem and would
huild as many houses. Three beauti
ful homes are already under course of
construction and others are to built
during the summer. These homes, -It
is understood, are not for rent, but will
be placed on the market when com
peted, and two of the house now being
finished have already been sold.
West Salem is shuring the progress
,nd prosperity that characterize Sa
lem, due, perhaps ,to the fact that high
rentals in Salem have caused the work
in? man to look elsewhere for a home.
But why should they not? Did you ever
stop to think that the distance from
Commercial street to W. B. Gerth's
etort In West Salem is but twelve
Mo-i-,? ople llvo in the east part
of Salem fifteen or sixteen blocks from
tn .'us streets and think nothing
0f walking to and from work. With a
streetcar service over the river, which
will be inevitable soon, West Salem
would be the most popular residence
district of Salem. Here is an incor
porated city with a population of per
haps tlx hundred people. They have
provided their own sewer and water
' systems and both are adequate to ac
commodate a population five times as
large as the present. The burden of
tax Is lighter than In other localities
and civic improvements have already
been provided, a guarante that tarn
on will not hinder the future develop
ment of the Bplk county city.
The residence district is not alone to
find permnnent development. Indus
tries of different kinds are being estab
lished there. Among these Is a broom
factory established a few days ago.
The new company commenced opera
tion this week and with a crew of ten
or twelve workmen they are putting
their product on the marKet M last as
the factory's capacity will permit.
Another enterprise to be established
in West Salem is the sand and gravel
works under course of. construction by
Imlah & Pugh. They are building a
large receptacle for gravel fifty one
feet high and this will be filled by
means of a pump, talcing the grave.1
from tho river bed. Tho approximate
cost of the construction la $20,000. . .
G. M. Douglas, a West Salom con
tractor and builder, has irr.i-
tracted to build six new houses in this
wcinuy during the coming season, and
as many more havi hi.
- - ii.iit IU MIU-
mit plans and specJflcatlons. The sum
mer 01 is. u wai surely be a record
breaker for West Salem.
