SALEM IS GOING AHEAD RAPIDLY.
No one can take a drive out through the suburbs of Salem
without coming to the conclusion that the Capital City or Oregon
is going ahead very rapidly.
Hundreds of new houses are under construction and in the
process of completion.
This i3 not confined to any one section of the city, but is gen
eral. $A $250,000 sewer system, that should have been built ten
years ago, is under construction, and will be completed this year.
Many streets are being graded and paved, although unneces
sary delays are going to leave a lot of street work unfinished
over the winter.
Thousands of homes are beingimproved with sidewalks, park
ing, and planting of shrubs and flowers.
It is to be regretted that the construction of bridges has been
delayed, and it seems probable that the city will go . without
bridges for another year.
Many of the principal streetswill be closed to traffic over the
winter on account of this fact.
The "do littles and do nothings," as they are aptly called by
the mayor, in the council and out of it, are responsible for these
There is to be another bond election for bridges, and these ob
stacles to the development of thecity may be removed.
The "do littles and dQ nothings" have also had their innings
in dealing with the water problem.
While towns like Medford and Eugene have gone ahead and
got water and lighting plants installed, the city of Salem is still
The conservatives have exhausted every resource to delay
public ownership of water in Salem.
In the meantime the city has expanded in ten years from
4500 to 15,000 population.
We are putting in a sewer system that will create from 500
to 1000 additional water consumers.
All these facts make the property and the plant of the Salem
Water Company more valuable, and still the "do little and do
nothings" hesitate about acquiring the property.
Enterprising citizens of North Salem are initiating a measure
to put in a well and pumping system to furnish water, the plants
to cost about $200,000.
With the growth of the city going on in every direction, with
every citizen favoring progress, with every councilman elected
upon a progressive platform, there should be an end to the dila
tory and holdup policies pursued in public matters.
Thi3 applies to corporation and individuals, and to the gener
al policies of the city government.
With the splendid enterprises of the mass of our citizens, it is
inexcusable for those in public position to place obstacles in the
way of rational development.
We have cited Eugene and Medford, and wish to call attention
in conclusion to what the city of Tacoma is doing.
The monthly statement published by the city government
shows the following result of public ownership of lighting and
Total expenditures for the month of February, 1911, $34,
232.42. Receipts, $50,130.60, or a net revenue to the city of
about $16,000 per month.
With the extension of the Salem sewer system, the water rates
of this city will become a very valuable source of revenue,
whether it is managed by the city or the private corporation.
HOP BUYERS GOOD FOR SOMETHING.
It is well known that hop buyers are good fellows, but it was
not known that they were good for anything in particular aside
from their business.
They are considered to be good business men, and to be ag
gressive at times, and to take chances on winning, however, but
they had never been tried in a public position until Louis Lach
mund was elected mayor of Salem.
Mayor Lachmund has not only proven himself an aggressive
mayor, but he has accomplished several results for the welfare
of the Capital City.
For one thing, he has established the impression that he is
absolutely sincere in his expressions, and in the attitude he takes
on any matter.
The city of Salem is probablyas free from gambling and other
vices as it has ever been in the whole history of the town.
Under his administration the Illihee club bar was closed on
Sunday, the same as any other bar in the city.
Mayor Lachmund is also progressive in that he is not afraid
when he has made a mistake to clear himself and make it right.
While he is determined, persistent and tenacious, and loves to
draw out the man opposed to hi m in an argument, he still tries
to get his mind open to information on the other side.
By virtue of its unequaled
properties, is the

H. E. VALEXTIXE, WHO CAME
HERE BUT A SHORT TIME AGO
FROM OHIO, AXD HAD JUST
PURCHASED A BEAUTIFUL
HOME IS CALLED AWAY.
H. E. Valentine, 62, a prominent
politician, of Ohio, died at his home,
corner of Market and Capitol streets,
at 11 o'clock last night. Death was
unexpected, and was due to a clot of
blood forming on the heart as a re
sult of a varicose 'vein. Mr. Valen
tine had been confined to his bed
for the last two weeks, but nothing
serious was anticipated as the result
of his illness.
He was born In Crawford county
Ohio, April 8, 1859. He was elected
mayor of Bucyrus, Ohio, on the Dem
ocratic ticket for three successive
terms, and served as state senator
from Crawford county Ohio, for two
terms. He completed his last term
as mayor about two years ago. He
also served as city engineer of Bucy
rus for seven years. When not hold
ing public office, Mr. Valentine en
gaged in farming. He was a promi
nent member of both the Elk and
He is survived by his widow and
three children, a boy two and one
half years old and a girl of 13, re
siding here, and a married son, Al
len G. Valentine, living near Madison,
Funeral arrangements have been
postponed pending a reply to a mes
sage sent to Allen Valentine last
Mr. Valentine with his wife and
two young children arrived In Salem
last summer. He purchased a beau
tiful home on the Boulevard in North
Salem, erected a modern poultry
house, and had Just completed a
small store adjoining his residence
In which he had intended to engage
in the retail grocery business.
The death of Mr. Valentine is un
usually sad, in view of the fact that
the family are practically strangers
here and far from relatives and
friends, Mrs. Valentine Is left to
mourn the unexpected death of hus
band and father.
A DOIT A PLAN TO
For 'the purpose of ridding the
state institutions of what are termed
"undesirable employes,'' an agree
ment has been made between the dif
ferent superintendents whereby they
agree to advise each other of those
discharged from the Institutions be
cause of bad conduct, and the first
one to act in pursuance to the agree
ment was Superintendent Tlllinghast,
of the deaf mute school, when, Satur
day afternoon he advised the super
intendents of the other institutions
that certain female attendants had
been appropriating sheets and other
articles of value from the Bchool.
The names of the women were filed
by the superintendents notified, and
it will be impossible for them to se
cure employment at any one of the
state institutions. It is believed by
the superintendents that the plan
will put a stop to much of the" petty
pilfering which has been going on
at the institutions, and that it will
do much to bring the general conduct
of the employes up to a higher stand
