'.00 Six tnoatha F COUNCIL PAGE TWO 60c J 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 ago. The time for action and to quit talking is just as impera tive now as ever before, and the efforts to switch are just ' asjlaifl. 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 aboujt, "Tiffere have never been twenty cases of typhoid fever in this city at any one time that five doctors will agree in nam ing as such. The cases that have been here have b6en mostly of a mild foxm, and there have been, almost no deaths from typhoid fever, 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, TEAR DOWN THOSE S?GNS. ' The Qood Citizenship League should not be parties to any deceptions, As a result of their prosecutions in the redlight district a fraud is perpetrated. On oach of the houses in the restricted district is the sign: "Furnished Rooms to Rent," The Good Citizenship League should see to it that those signs are torn down. , , , , . TRey are a dangerous deception to the unwary and unjust to people who rent furnished rooms, Lote the redlight district stand on its merits and be known for Its real character, Moro Danville rroor.
