The First Sale Made By This
--LXS"4aa . 11 , -fl!HSISjgWB4a&aactaSg
During the nine months which have since elapsed it has made 107 sales
to 104 different persons. Of the purchasers 85 have bought farming lands.
It has also, during this time sold 61 residence lots in Salem. Of those
purchasing but 25 wore residents of Marion county prior to purchasing.
The remainder were from the following localities, viz: Jackson Co. 1
Polk Co. 3 Multnomah Co. 4 Clackamas Co. 1 Yamhill Co 1 Mon
tana 4 Minnesota 4 Kansas 10 England 2 Colorado 2 Washington
Territory 7 Iowa 5 Dakota 3 Indiana 2 California 8 Nebraska 7
Ohio 3 Wisconsin 1 Missouri 1 Illinois 1 Pennsylvania 2 Unknown 7.
This shows that sales are not confined to former residents of this local
ity, but that people are swarming in from the East to make their homes
among us. Tho business of this company is constantly Increasing. More
than half of its sales have been made within the past three months, al
though this is a season of tho year when sales are usually dull. The
company has from 15 to 20 men constantly employed. It has representatives
on Puget Sound. Ithas three men hi Portland, twoot whom give it their
entire time. Rev. F. J. Strayer, who last year introduced so many immi
grants into this State, is now In the East lecturing and distributing
advertising literature exclusively for this company. He will start to this
State with his first excursion on the 4th of April next.
This company is now spending more money to advertise Salem and the
surrounding locality than

Hon. J. N. Delpii:
I have the honor to acknowl
edge tho receipt of your letter of
February 24th, touching on a com
munication you havo received from
prominent citizens of Salem, Ore
gon, urging tho establishment of a
station at that place.
I havo the honor to say frankly,
that it does not seem to mo Hint
such n station is required in the best
interest of the publlo service. Thero
aro now stations at Astoria, Port
land, Boseburg, and on tho U.S.
Military-telegraph lines, at Ashland
Linkvllle and Fort Klamath, us also
a station at Walla Walla, Just over
tne line to the norm- unci at noise
City, to tho eust. Tho Hon. Mr.
Hermann has been very urgent that
a station should bo established at
Baker City. Tho hentiment of all
the officers connected with predict
ing duty is against the establishment
of it station ut Baker City. But I
havo iiad In mind tho possibility of
establishing a station thero In the
interest of Eastern Oregon, perhaps
being obliged to move Bolso City to
Baker Ci . Of course if it was
agreed by i lie Oregon delegation that
Salem fill .u Id have the station rath
er than lloseburg, such u clmngo
could bo made, though lu tho inter
est of geographical distribution
Eugene City would bo the moro
preferable point. I am unfamiliar
with tho growth of tho Oregon cities
since 1880, und should be pleased to
defer as far as possible, to tho wishes
of yourself in particular, and tho
Oregon delegation in general, In
meteorological matters concerning
the interests of that state.
Very sincerely yours,
