REFUSES TO TRADE WITH
SPAULDISG CO. AD M AKES J AIL
A TERROR TO TRAMPS BY OB.
DERIXG SHOWER BATHS.
Hot words. and warm measures
were the rule at the city council last
evening. Several matters which
have been simmering for the past
tew weeks came to a boil and it
looked for a time as If some one
would get scalded. Mayor Lach
inund sent one bill tack with an em
phatic veto, and another bill con
cerning the vacation of certain city
streets In favor of the Spauldlng
Logging company was reconsidered
and laid on the table' Indefinitely.
Alderman Huckesteln brought up a
bill to improve conditions at the city
jail and was reprimanded by the
mayor for butting in on the work of
Things went along smoothly for a
time. 2,010.40 was ordered paid for
the work on Twelfth street bridge.
A. Burns was paid the balance of
12,074.81 for the completion of his
North Salem sewer work, several ad
ditional sewer specifications were
considered and then the fun started.
An Unequal Trade.
Councilman Durbln moved the re
consideration of the resolution for
the city to vacate Water street south
of Court, Ferry street, west of Front
and the alleys in blocks 64 and 65,
all of which property the resolution
proposed the city should trade for
certain water frontage owned by the
Spaulding Logging compny. In sup
port of this motion Mr. Durbin said,
"Gentlemen, I asked last week for a
few days to Investigate this matter
and I wish to state that I have thor
oughly done so. I have gone over
the ground and I find that we would
be trading 129,354 square feet of de
sirable Btreets for only 3,000 square
feet of water front. I do not wish t
work a hardship on the Spaulding
people but I do believe that such a
change would be vicious and entire
ly bad. We already have considera
ble water frontage that extends
north from the end of the bridge.
This Is even a more desirable sight
for a city dock than the place under
discussion. I also find that the city
lias no legal right to bargain, sell or
reconsideration was unanimously
carried and a notice was ordered sent
to the Spaulding people command
ing them to vacate the streets which
they have been using for so many
The next bomb to be exploded was
Alderman Huckestein's resolution
that the city council order the build
ing committee to install in the" base
ment of the city jail a concrete floor,
two grated doors, one solid Iron
door and to make an entrance to the
basement from the street Also that
two shower baths be installed in the
Jail. The mayor moved that the mat
ter be referred to the building com
mittee, but this method of delaying
the effects of the resolution did not
appeal to Its author and he objected
in the following manner.
Baths for Tramps.
"Gentlemen, this is a matter of
grave importance to the city of Sa
lem. You who do not know the facts
have but to look into the basement
of this building to find that the con
ditions as depicted in the papers of
recent date are true. Such condi
tions have existed long enough and
it Is time that tbey should cease.
Filth Is no name for the city Jail.
When I asked the chief why there
were no quilts for the cots, he an
swered that once there were quilts,
but that they became so louzy that
they walked away. Whoever the
men are who inhabit our jails, they
are human beings and deserve con
sideration as such. A means of get
ting clean and keeping that way is
the least that we can do for them.
Chief Hamilton took this matter
up with Mr. Moffltt of the building
committee and he has so far neglect
ed to act. It Is now up to the coun
cil to see that it is done." After be
muddling temporary chairman Lafky
considerably with several motions,
the resolution was unanimously
Moffltt and his jackscrews were
then brought within the range of the
mayor's powerful Irony as he told
why he had vetoed the paying of the
bill for the use of the same. He said
that such a bill was unjust, unfair,
and if paid would be a disgrace to
the city. Mr. Moffltt's bill was for
the use of several jackscrews which
the city had loaned and for which he
was making a charge of 25 cents per
day, which Is the usual charge for
the use of the same in this city.
Thej mayor thought, however, that a
tool that earned 1,800 per cent or
more per year. on the money invest-

The Socialists tf Salem held a
meeting at Commercial Hall last
night to consider the nomluation of
Socialist candidates candidates for
councilmen in the various wards. The
following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That the trends of
events eerywhere Is distinctly en
couraging to Socialists. The natural
and ineviatble fruits of capitalism in
the high cost of living, and its ina
bility to keep the people employed,
presage its early undoing.
In the United States the Social
ists now control something like 60
cities, in every one of which, where
there has been time for action, they
are giving practical demonstration,
which for benlflcence and economy
have never been equaled In this
In foreign lands the Socialist par
ty is now nearing complete control
of government, and In the very near
future will be able to demonstrate on
a national scale the beneflctence of
their political and economic Ideas.
2. In local affairs we favor a
city-owned water plant, and a city
owned lighting plant, water and light
to be furnished the people at cost.
3- All work of public improve
ment should be done by the city and
thus save to the people the money
that now goes as profits to the con
tractors. 4. Home labor should have pref
erence In all public work, and eight
hours should constitute a day's labor.

According to Capt. Ryan, the offi
cer in charge of Salvation Army
work at Salem, there are about 20
or 30 families in this city who do
not know where their clothing and
food for this winter are coming from.
Capt. Ryan says every cent he can
raise and every bit of old clothing
they can get hold of goes to the sup
port of unfortunate and deserving
people. Some old clothing they con
vert Into money and that goes Into
their relief fund. Only the plainest
things are bought no luxuries.
Clothing for men and children Is es
pecially needed. He says he has had
some help from the Ladles' Aid So
ciety who recently gave the charity
ball, but he says that organization
cannot do much more for his work.
He and his wife ge to the homes of
the poorest people and they frequent
ly send for them and do them a
world of good by praying with them
and keeping them from growing de
spondent and losing all hope. That
kind of consolation often helps them
as much as money and clothes. The
Army also conducts a Bible class at
the state prison Friday nights, and
they do a work there of Incalculable
value. All their prison work Is per
sonal work with the men. They get
no support from the state in that
work or any work they do. That
much good is being done by the Sal
vation Army Is evident and that it Is
worthy of support is certain. Fur
thermore aid given through their or
ganization will accomplish more and
go farther and go more nearly to the
right people than by any other chan
nel of distribution. It Is a comfort
to know that there is an organiza
tion that seeks out the needy and
ministers to them.
The Army needs from $200 to $300
for its charltble work at Salem this
winter, and there ought to be some
way to get tills money.
