Potato Market Is
Much Excited with
Many Bids Coming
Portland, Ore., Oct. 17. Excitement
iii the potato trade is the most intense
known here for muuy years.
Ho great is the demand that practical

tory are receiving 'from one to a dozen i
bids every day from dealers for their

While the general buying prices for
fancy potatoes remains at $1 per cental
at country points, where the freight is
the same as from Portland, it is known
that fair business has been done at this
price in flections where the freight rate
is from 5 to 111 cents higher to Califor
nia. While there is little doing in the local
wholesale, potato trade because of the
"peddling" to the retailers by farmers,
still the trade has a most optimistic
view of the situation. The only serious
drawback to the trade. but which may
eveintually do good is that cars for
shipments are about as scarce as ' ' hens'
teeth," and but small shipments havo
been made from here during the last
feir days.
Onions Are Firmer.
Onion prices are firmer in the coun
try. While some recent sales are report
ed in the Sherwood district by growers

federate association has temporarily
quit selling. Nothing could be pur-1
chased from the association below $1.90, !
even tnougn it was wining to sell, rne
fact is that the local selling agent of
the organization has established that
One of the reasons why the associa

City Council Asked to Deepen
and Clear Channel to Pre
vent Floods
Probably the most important thing
that came before tho city council at
its regular meeting last night was the
petition of the taxpayers of southeast
Salem asking for action by tho council
in clearing South Mill creek so that
tho menace of winter floods will be
removed. The petition was signed by
about sixty property holders of the
district affected, many of whom were
present to see what disposition the!
vuiuiv.li in mie or tne request.
Elmo S. White, attorney, acted as
spokesman for the taxpayers and was
given the privilego of the floor in or
der to explain the needs of the people.
He stated that eight years ago resi
dents of this district were menaced by
.s noun auu mat at thut timo
many houses were practically under
water. At that time the attention of
i lie council was not called to the nec
essity of clearing the creek to afford
an easier flow of water

..... -to i mum us mil. i somewhat far
ther to the east, he believed it would
send down more water than ever. He
declared it was necessary to have a
channel deep enough ami' wide enough
to take care of this flow.
C. E. Hayes was given the floor and
ho said southeast Salem had never ask
ed very much of the council, but as
there was considerable improvement
going on in that part of the city and
as tho annual floods have inconvenienc
ed them seriously he thought the coun
cil ought to take action and help them.
Ho said some of the families are so sit
uated their children cannot get to
school for days at a time. He snid they
only wanted what was due them.
Miss Luthynml others supported the
general argument as to the necessity
of the improvement.
T. B. Kay, stnte treasurer, stated
the attitude of the state In regard to
the digging of ditches. He aai.l there
was an impression given that the state
was going to drnin its land east of tho
city and dump the water on Salem. As
the state has several hundred acres
that need draining, he said it was on
ly reasonable that the land slum 1,1 he
drained. .
jiuwerer, no said tne diicn was to lie
urougni down to the city limits if the
city would clear the creek from there
to the Willamette river. This ditch is
to be dug by convict labor. Hut if the
city does not co-operate in making n
clear course for the wnter to flow
away, the stnte will take no action in
digging the big ditch. He said he could
see no logic in digging' a ditch that
would flood the inhabitants of the citv.
Councilman Huddleson confirmed
everything thnt was said concerning the
situation in southeast Salem and1
thought something should be done. He
said the normal flow was more than
me ueu oi me creeK would carry.

was to be left with the sewer commit

also ignored. Mr. Walker was repre
sented by Elmo S. White, who stated
that Walker feels discriminated against
and that he is being forced to build
when others have lots between him and
the city who have not been required
to build walks. He said the notice two
years ago was given when ho was not
in possession of the lot. He wants oth
