The rainfall that broke the drought

record shows a rainfall of .0.1 of an

In the early days of Salem about the
time there was some talk of building a
bridge across the Willamette river, the
people had their troubles somewhat dif
ferent from nowadays. In January of
1880 a remonstrance signed by 293 tax
payers was presented to tho city coun
cil in which the citizens objected most
strenuously to the ordinance prohibit
ing cows running at largo in tho city.
At a meeting of the city council held
June 16, 1886, it was ordered "that the
Old Fashioned Methodists be allowed
the use of Marion square provided no
horses or carriages be taken within
the enclosure." At the Bame meeting
an ordinance was passed allownvng cer

to it that the council could terminate
