OREGON CITY, OREGON, JI'NE 20, I
A Water Project.
We have been shown a jtetition to the
City Council praying that 1-ody to ex
tend the water pipes to the lower part
of the town. This project we presume
u in .accordance with the issue made at
tiiol ist f lection of which
were kent in ignorance
We have no
objections to the water pijx-s betn;g ex
tended to the lower part of the city,
hutweaiv opposed to giving any tnr
ther subsidies to the water company
for this purp..se. The lirst contract is
in outran ui-onthe tax-payers oftlie
citv Tie' works shoult nave oecu put i
down hv the city and owned by her.
H provides for a subsidy of ?l,OOOin i
gold coin !K-r year for fifteen years, ex
cepts tie work from taxation for ten
ve'irs It is a well known fact that
these 'works did not cost the owner
$4 in all, and he is receiving interest
from tlie city .alone on an investment
,f 1i,iiim besides the rent he receives
from private parties. This contract
also provided that he should sllppl.V
tle city v itlt good and healthy water.
This part of the contract has never been
tilled', as the water supplied is taken
from the mill-race, ami is the dregs and
hltli oftlie basin. Yet thecity has reg
ularlv paid its subsidy in coin. The
extension of the 'W ater pipes to the lovv
; c- end of the city would probably cost
four hundred dollars. For this, we are
informed, the owner wants two hun
dred doll: .s per year additional subsi
dy. Tli ft would be a good investment
f.j;- him as in two years he would get
back all that the work cost him, besides
lie could s ifi ly caleulate (,n collecting
from private individuals at least ten
dollars per month or interest on one
'thousand dollars, additional. The ciii-

... . . ,i, .
in-very go d interest on tin cost of I
cxb nding the worr:s, and we sec no
rood reason why the city should give
auv additional subsi-ly for this pur-jio.-e.
It argued that there are a large
number of tax-payers in the bottom
who are exposed to lire, an 1 demand
this exten-ioii. The same might be
said of ti:-; ta-;ayi-rs on the blutl'.
The conlr;..-tor should be required to
take the water down Main street to the
cm), but without any additional pay
from the ell v. If !ie does not see tit to
do this, let t lie Council demand ot him
t.i viii.t.lv- ":! and lure water
not the id! n of ttu river.
i i . .
W e a;ie-
n.l Ho t sooner than test the contract
he nil readily take the water iovn in
the bottom. It was promised by the
leaders of the ring that this subsidy
should U 'riven but we warn the 'otui
cil against anvsueli move. It the own
er of th u ..;. "! will not take it down
t here, let the citv do it. and the revenue
n eeived from the jx ople who will use
the water . ill pay more than interest
and tho ex pense 'of putting ,lw n the
pi:es in less titan live years. Tuis at
teinpl to force tie-citv to contribute to
this all-reefy too highly subsidized
coin nuii v, is sim pi v an oii'.rage on t!u
ta-paycrs. The ordinance giving the
iirst'siii.sidv is an outrage, and now it
is sought t- increase it. Let tho Coun
cil sav to the water owner, "if you do
let t.ik the water down to the end of
?I lin .- t reel we will pay you hereafter
in the currency of tin city, and no
longer nia.k: yi'mu preferred creditor. '
We hope the Council will consider this
subject" well before they burden the
city with an additional subsidy to en
rich a sing1.'- individual at tho expense
of the tax-payers.

He was a boy highly esteemed by all

been in command of the Oregon Vol

that the Volunteers massacred the
Modoes. A dispatch from Jackson
ville, under date of the lltli inst.,
General Tloss, of the Oregon Vol
unteers, who has just returned from
the front, denies that the murder of
the four Indian prisoners was com
mitted by his troops. He says the
nearest cam) of the Volunteers was
not less than ten miles distant from
the place where the murders were
committed, and says that if his troops
wanted to murder the Indian captives
they had a much better opportunity
at the time they captured twelve
prisoners and had sole custody of
them for three days before turning
them over to General Davis. The
Volunteers are expected to return
here to-morrow, and will be muster
ed out as soon as thev arrive.
Meuliciual Poisons on the AVane.
The patriarchs took no mercury, no
bismuth, n iodine, no bromide of po

IIupy old gentlemen! they did not
even know of the existence of those
'specifics," ami yet they lived until it
seemed as if Heath had forgotten them.
Their medicines wore herbs and roofs.
They have left this fact on record, and
the world seems to be now taking note
of it ami n turning to tho first princi
ples of medication, llostetter's Stom
ach letters, the purest and most effica
cious vegetable restorative of the day,
is also the most popular. Thousands
of persons w ho only a few years ago
believed implicitly in all the poisons
which l':gure in the pharmuciepiu, now
pronounce this palatable tonic and al
terative an all-sufficient remedy for
dvspcpsiu, nervous debility', constipa

disturbances of the stomach, the liver,
