Paving of Bummer street was
completed the first ot the week
and the plant has been moved to
Sixteenth street, between D and
Market streets. It Is estimated by
the city engineer that there were
12,000 square yards of paving laid
on Summer street. While no fig
ures are available as yet it is esti
mated that the work will cost
about $2 per square yard with the
curbing costing betwen 40 and 42
cents per lineal foot.
Now that all of the main travel
of the highway will be via Sum
mer street many will be asking
why the Redwood tree standing In
tho street Just off Union street
was not "cut down when the pav
ing was laid. The tree stands as
a monument to William Waldo,
pioneer ot Salem and county clerk
many years ago. He had planted
the tree before there were any
streets in Salem and the people
thought so much of "Uncle Bill"
that they asked that It be spared.
The paving as far as Market street
was done In 1912 and Mr. Waldo
died the following year.
Before 1880, when gasoline was
discovered to have power possi
bilities, gas engines were operated
by gunpowder and turpentine.
