Dear Sir—A mass meeting of the citi
zens of Lafayette was held in Olds’ hall
Tuesday evening, November 2d, at seven
o’clock for the purpose of considering the
location of the dam and locks to be built
in the Yamhill river, as a protest had
been sent formerly to the secretary of
war requesting that a change be made in
the location and that the same be built
on the falls at Lafayette.
It was the sense of the meeting that as
congress by act of June 3d, 1896, had
definitely fixed the location of said dam
and locks resolutions be passed and a
petition numerously signed requesting
the secretary of war to proceed with the
work at as early a date as practical where

resolutions adopted by a town meeting
and a petition numerously signed by
those formerly desiring a change of lo

drawing their objections to thé contem

commenced as speedily aB possible. I

The people of Yamhill county, and
es|»ecially citizens of Lafayette, at which
point the proposed dam and locks in the
Yamhill river are to be located, are nat
urally very anxious for that long-delayed
improvement to be begun. The people
of that section can never quite forget the
old days of steamboat traffic on that
stream. They look anxiously for the
promised improvement as a precursor of
the good times for farmers which water
way transportation for crops in competi
tion with railway transportation induces,
and see in the interest taken in the mat
ter by the members of congress, and in
their opinion that the appropriation that
has already been secured w ill practically
complete the work, indications of the
early realization of their hopes. While
their waiting lias been of the compulso
ry order, it may be said that they have
supported the delay with a reasonable
degree of patience. The hum of indus
try to which the quiet old pioneer town
of Lafayette has long been a stranger
will speedily follow the letting of the con
tract for this much-desired improvement.
