Muinn I oxnect. very sK)n, to cease
to be a resident of this city. Before

fnlil nnrtlos who solicited me to
porrolt the use or my name before
tho nominating bodies, that I con
(,niitiini.(l ii clmmro of residence in
the then near future, and I then
thought Hint tho Intention of nomi
tmtlnif inn wiu abandoned. A re
collection of this fact, and a knowl-
oilrrn (hut I did not seek the OllllV,
render It less dlillcult than It other
wise would be to resign the position.
Tn thus parting with the peoplo
of Salem, 1 desiro to express my
tliankfulness to them fortlio suj
port which they have given me of
ficially during the fourteen months
that 1 have served them.
Though widely differing from
some ofthe councllmen as to certain
measures which have come before

of tho mayoralty, their treatment of
inn has been,
with few exceptions,
Honlnir that tho city will bo bless-

The principal business of this in
corporation will be the buying and
selling of real estate in Oregon. Tho
managers propose to extensively ad
vertise the resources and advantages
of Oregon in the leading newspapers
of the United States, and by means
of circulars nnd pamphlets. Thov
are already reaching vw fourniH
lion readers through the New York
Tribune, Chicago Inter-Ocean
Toledo Blade, Montreal Family
Herald, National Tribune, Des
Moines Register. St. laul,
Pioneer Press, Columbus Journal,
Fort Wayne Sentinel and b ioux
Falls (Dak.) Press. This list will be
enlarged until they have brought
Oregon to the notice of the readers
of one thousand different news-pancrS-
throughout the country. In
addition to this means of advertising
the company will have agents at
various points in other states, whose
business it shall be to inform them
selves in regard to Immigrants
going to the Pacific coast
and to represent to them the advan
tages of Oregon nnd to get as many
as possible to buy tickets direct to
Salem and whenever practicable to
charter carloads of people through
to this city.
This company bases its prospects
of success on the fact that no state in
the Union has so many attractions
fnr twnrmnnnt, settlers and home
Hwkprs ns Orecon and on the belief
that there are thousands of peoplo
who could better their condition in
mrnrv resnect bv cominc to Oregon.
Tho ollico of this company for the
present will bo in tho State In
surance Company's building; but a
large and convenient brick building
will ho erected for its use as soon as
brick can be obtained.

lowing losses were reperted: M. F.
White, 250 acres; Ed. Clark, 60
acres; Alonzo McNary, 180 acres;
George Smith, 180 acres; Sam Burch.
35 acres; Alex. Holmes, 30 acres, it
is estimated that lit least one-half of
tho acreage of wheat in this, tho
richest and best section of tho coun
ty, is destroyed. A great many fields
have been resown, and It is expected
that the crop for 1888 will be de
creased a very little, if any, by tho
