ENGLISH MINERS STRIKE
London, March 24 While representa
tive of the' "triplo nlliance" and the
government were continuing their ne
gotiations today, six thousand minora
went on strike in tho Rhondda, Vfiltoy
region. They announced the walkout

failuro to grant the miners1 full de

Railway union officials describe tKe
situation as "Oifficult."
Although for many years the only
means of transportation was on tho Wil
lamette river and whilo tho river is yet
offering lower freight transportation
charges, tho city of Salem has never
owneu not even one foot of river front
aye, execpting where Trade streot is
platted t0 the river bank.
And even this river frontage tfn Trade
street is not available, to any extent
from tho fact that since Front streot
was graded and paved and raised to a
level with Commercial, the haul from
the river bank to Front street has boen
too steep for general merchandise pur
Even in the nays before railroads, the
city fathers of Salem were not inter
ested in owning docking privileges and
even when the original city of Salem
was plotted, none of the lots run to the
river bank. The femes of tho olden
davs and all dock havo been owned by
privato parties or companies.
Own Bank for First Time.
And now for the first time in its his
tory, the city of Salem is given an op
portunity to own at least two block of
its river bank running from Court to
Center st roots, or perhaps half a, block
north", midway between the Polk and
Marion county bridge and the South
ern Pacific bridge.
Tht chance' for the city to have pos
session and ownership of the river bank
comes from tho fact that tho Spaulding
Logging company offers to give the city
this two and B half blocks of river
frontage in oxchango for tho foot of
trade; streot, which is now only used
as a dumping ground, and the streots
and alloys at the foot of State streot
which have boen used by tho logging
company for the pasf generation.
When the city was laid out in the
early '50 's, certain blocks were laid out
between Front street and the river, and
mere was thon laid out Water street.
B9 feet wide. But even with a street,
of this width, there was still left several
feet of rivor bank.
Hence when transfers were made of
the blocks between Front and Water i
strets, thero was still left the river
frontage, which was of course includ-
ed in tho original land claim and pat-:
cut of William n. Willson and his wife,
Chloe A. Willson. In the original city
charts, Water streot begins about where
the present warehouse of the old Oregon
City Transportation company is located
