One would think to read the advertisements of some of the merchants
that this is a very poor place to do business in. They are continually
BELLING OUT AT COST. How do the keep up? Are they supported
by charity, or arc they and their advertisements frauds?
Hear the Truth !
Salem 1b a prosperous and growing city, and all fts merchants are doing
well and making money, and any right-minded man knows that wnen a
a merchant advertises to sell "at cest," that it is always at what it "costs
the buyer." Men do not go into business for fun or for their health, but
to make money.
never advertise to sell off at cost, yet we aro constantly 20 to 30 per cent,
lower than any other house in Salem. Why? Because we buy from first
hands and for cash, and get our goads cheaper. Now during the months
of January an.d February only we propose to reduce our prices on all good
and show the people of Salem and the surrounding country how wo can
SELL GOODS and not
''Sell at Cost"

Woodburn, Feb. 5, 2, p. si.
Weather Is now clearing oft and sun
shining brightly. Affairs on the
narrow gauge look better to-day.
The Abequa bridge, which washed
out, is being repaired and will prob
ably be safe by.the end of the week.
The north Santiam bridge which
was reported gone was found to be
all right with exception of one bent,
which was washed out. It will be
safe for travel to cross by to-night.
The road will then be in working
order from the Abequa to west Scio.
The south Santiam bridge is not so
badly damaged as at first reported.
It will probably be repaired by the
end of the week, when trains can
from Woodburn to Brownsville and
in all probability the wholo road
will bo clear by that time but no
definite news can be obtained from
south of Brownsville. No heavy
damage is expected south of there.

carrier's pluck. The farm of R. W.
Say re, his uncle' was badly flooded
Saturday, and Sunday all was over
flown. Mnrtlu Durbin went to the
house Sunday moruing, by crossing
an outlet from a lake by a footlog.
He spent all day Sunday with the
family, helping to put Up his uncles
grain, and got the stock on dry
ground. Monday morning the
flood was so great that Martin had to
bo fetched out in a boat, and
mounted his pony and went back
to town ten miles above.
When .he came out of that house,
the water was 2 to 20 feet deep.
Mr. Sayre remained until Tuesday
at 3 p. m., when Capt. Gore of the
steamer Orient took him oil. His
horses and hogs were up in his
house. His cattle were wading in
two feet of water, tho highest land
in the bottom. He lost about 75
head of sheep. All the steamboat
hands tried to swim the horses out
but they would not leave the house.
At Finch's and Scott's several
norses were rescued. Mr. B. It.
Scott's house is washed away. Mr. ,
Simon lost about 140 cords of wood.1
Mr. Sayre's grain house was de-,
stroyed. O. F. Dennis lost every-j
tiling, House, barn, saw mill, stocK
and everything. Wra. Isom lost
his all, including horses and cattle,
the driftwood carrying away all be
low it, and against which no stock
could swim. If the river keeps go
ing down Mr. Sayre will save his
stock. Jack Edwards did good
work in saving the Jones family,
and Mr. Jones is reported better.

WHAT SIIALh WE DO?
Opinions of (he Citizens Regarding
What Should bo Dono in the
This morning many luivis seen
the immediate necessity of Kittic
definite action being taken in re
gard to the situation Salem is placed
In since the big bridge is gone nwny.
Accordingly u Journal reporter
was detailed to review the mutter
and interview n few of the leading
citizens, and the following is n. short
synopsis of the general opinion of
Weller Bros, groeer were seen
and were ,very mucli in favor of n
free ferry. Think it is the proper
thing to do. But understand us,
just as soon as practical, we nro In
for a good substantial bridge.
Hon. A. Bush: there are various
objection? to a free ferry. I think
that if Mr- Holman or some one will
put In a good ferry and charge a
minimum toll that that would be the
most proper thlug to do. If private
parties do not put in a ferry then I
would favor a joint stock company
doing so. I want to see the bridge
rebuilt, but When it is I want a good
one, one that will be a credit to the
county. I do not think it well to be
too hasty in the matter. We might
build u combination wagon aud
railroad bridge together, if a railroad
bridge is wanted across the river.
Hon. A. N. Gilbert, pestmaster:
Mr. Holman has the exclusive fran
chise to all river rights across the
river and of course if some one else
was to run a boat they would have
to pay for the right. Do not think
a free system practical. I want to
see connections made with Polk
county, and think a boat run on a
tollnge system the proper courso to
pursue. I waut a bridge that will
stand. I think the citizens of
Polk county will see the advantage
they have derived from the free
bridge, and will be in for aiding us
more liberally in the future. That
free bridge has saved them thou
sands of dollars.
J. G. Wright, grecer: Don't liko
to see a few persons have to stand
all the expenses. I am in favor of
an equal taxation in nil things. If
all would donate according to their
trade I would be in for a free ferry.
Captain Bell, an old steam-bont
man was seen and said: If the peo
ple will give me a free franchise I
will have a boat here in no time and
will run it properly. I will have a
boat here in a few hours if I could
secure a free franchise.
John Hughes, grocer, favors a free
ferry If it could bo equally paid for
by the business men. Yes wo want
a new bridge.
Hon.J.Q. Wilson, said: If Sa
lem is to have a new bridge before
1891 it must be built by a joint stock
company and a toll charged. Can't
make it in any other way. After it
is built then the counties can buy
it by reserving this right and if they
see proper convert it into n free
.1 H. Limn, dealer in dry goeds:
1 lmvn't a word to say this morning
as 1 liavn't considered the mutter,
r am in for the best interest of the
pople at all times, however.
Cox & Boggs, grecers: Yes wo are
in tavor of a free ferry until a bridge
can be built. Wo stand ready to do
our share iu any way to make mat
ters ns nrcpssiblc as possible
until a new bridge can be built.
J. H. Albert, banker: I think the
people ought to get together and
hold a meeting and decide upon
what they want. I for one am In
favor of a free bridge. Wo don't
want to drivcaway trade that stands
at our very door. I want to see the
brldgo rebuilt in a substantial way.
It. H. Wallace, banker and capital
ist: I favor a free bridge and to such
nn enterprise I will pay more than
I would in tollage. This I think is
the proper mode to take.
Squire Farrar, grecer: I think a
toll should be charged, just.enough
to cover all expenbes. I can see
slight objections to a free system.
Think the citizens should get to
gether and consider the matter.
Daniel J. Fry, druggist: I want
to see nil accomodations made that
arc possible to convenience oiitahle
patronage ami as soon ns possible I
want to sec Salem building a grand,
fine bridge ucross the river. We
must liavo it.
Mayor Williams: Let someone
putoti a toll ferry until a bridge can
be built. I bullove in putting In a
good bridge and charging toll. It
is the only Huccafulwuy I. know
of. Place the toll ut a low rate' aud
It will prove a utfl.
B.S.Cook, of the Oregon Land
cempany: I believe it Is best to
put in a boat and charge a smnll
toll until a brldgo can be built.
Wo favor n Mispenslon fr.'e
bridge. The Oregon Land
compuiy stand ready to put their
shoulder to the wtieci aud help put J
up tins oncigo wncn tne people aro
W. II. Cottle, of the State Insur
ance cempany: wo must at once es
tablish some connection with Polk
county until the bridge can bo built.
I want to see a bridire put in the
right wav and want it a flue one.
P. S. Knight, of tho Electric Im
provement cempany: I think a
trood toll bridge the proper thing;
make the toll mederate:
Hist enough to pay expenses and
keen the bridge In repair.
Thomas Holman was seen by a
Journal reporter this evening and
he said: "I shall go to Portland to
moriow if possible and secure u ferry
boat at the earliest possible mo
ment. I will use all efforts
to have one running as soon as pos
sible. Yes It is my intention to run
the boat until the bridge is built."
