PJ . . LESS TAIK AND MORE ACTION.
That was the burden of the suggestions of the business
men who appeared before the city council Monday night.
The battle for mountain water has dragged along for
months when there should have been action.
All the facts necessary for action have been in the posses
sion of the mayor and city council for six months.
Decisive action was not taken until the epidemic scared
them into action that should have been taken six months
The time for action and to quit talking is just as impera
tive now as ever before, and the efforts to switch are just
The Capital Journal warns the people not to be jollied into
pumping out more Willamette water and putting in 'a filter
ing plant, '
That is the latest move to switch the plain duty of this city
and state to go after an unpolluted source in the mountains,
The city and state should listen to nothing but a gravity
system of pure mountain water from the forest reserve.
The state is even more deeply concerned in this than the
city, and the state should not consent to filtering river
NO INCREASE IN DEATH RATE AT SALEM.
No one has claimed that there has been any increase In
the death' rate at Salem. . '
4s a rule in the newspapers there are one or two deaths
a day at Salem and surroundings,
Italy everybody dying within five miles of the city is
buried here, and many are brought here for burial.
'Xtyis rate has not been exceeded, and it is flse that there
is any increase in fatalities here,
It seems that so-called health boards and so-called
official health guardians make the worst of everything.
Let the cold fact be stated that there has been no increase
in the death rate at Salem and as usual Salem has been lied
"Tiffere have never been twenty cases of typhoid fever in
this city at any one time that five doctors will agree in nam

The cases that have been here have b6en mostly of a mild

DO NOT PLUNGE THE CITY IN DEBT.
: Following are the main facts about the city's, present fin
ancial condition of warrants overdrawn and drawing, inter
est, ..General fund warrants, $4,277.
Street fund warrants, $13,609.
There will be four months current exoenses to meet be
fore taxes are payable, or about $18,000 to $20,000,
It will be admitted that owing to street improvements
some of this indebtedness is legitimate.
-There will also be some revenues coming into the city
treasury for licenses in the coming few months
But it can be set down that the city w'll havr -tin behind
tlis past year from twenty to thirty thour and dollars.
This is not in accordance with the principles of the city
charter and this debt should be provided for,
If this debt is not provided for- all city warrants will be
drawing intei est and the old warrant graft will be restored,
