bert, president of the Salem Com
mercial club to confer with the South
ern Pacific officials and learn if pos
sible whether there really was any ef
fort being made towards building that
long looker for S. P. depot at Salem.
Unfortunately, the officials Mr.
Hamilton wished to see were out of
town and the trip did not produco any
large ainoujit of information or satis
faction. But the following letter wns re
ceived this morning by Mr. Hamilton,
which indicates pretty clearly that at
least plans and specifications ar
drawn and that a request will be inndo
from the higher lips for an appropria
tion. The letter is as follows:
"T have your letter of the 17th in
reference to the Salem Station matter
and beg to advise yon that we havo
just completed nnd agreed on plans
and specifications for the building,
etc., and the superintendent has been
instructed to draw up a regular request
for authority for an appropriation. Wo
will hope for the appropriation within
a few weeks and when received, tho
work will start at once.
"You may be assured that the of
ficers of tlie company are giving the
Salem station matter due attention and
we ourselves are anxious to get this
matter behind us.
"Very truly yours, J. H. Dyer."
Mr. Dyer is assistant general man

Some time ago an official of tho
Southern Pacific; company gave tho
