Buy Farra's Plant.
At a special meeting of the
commission of the City Water
VVo.ks, held Tuesday evening,
the plant of tbe Corvallis Watt
Company was purchased, Dr. G.
R. Farra representing the later
company. The commission of
the City Water Works consists of
F. L. Miller, S. L,. Kline, W. S,
McFadden . and Wm Bogue.
These are the parties represent
ing both sides of the deal.
The price paid was $4,500 and
few will fail to see that the city
got a splendid bargain. Possess,
ion of the recently acquired plant
is to be given October 1st. The
commission purchased the main
leading from the plant to the
Congregational church, Dr. Farra
and his company retaining the
balance of the piping.
This is a most creditable
move on the part of the commis
sion, as it provides for any exi
gencies which might arise. Now,
in case anything happens to our
mountain water system we have
a plant right here to supply
wa.er; in fact, we now own two
plants. We are well fixed,
thanks to the commission. An
other thing to credit of the com
mission is 'hat it is proposed to
pay for the plant without issuiug
bonds, as they were authorized to
do at he last city election. From
whatever poirt of view we take
in the matter it seems that the
commission has acted most wise
