That it is of paramount importance to the welfare of the city goes without saj ing, and it is the duty of every individ ual citizen to assist in every way possi ble in its proper solution and that way ' is to vote Yes for the proposition. So far this fall we have been singular ly fortunate in the fact, that notwith standing the unusual drouth, .vehnve had no fires. We cannot in the nature of things, expect this almost providen tial immunity, to continue indefinitely. One tiro in the center of the business section of our beautiful city would prob ably coat more than would be required to give us the system of waterworks. Let us as if one man vote for the pro position. The city council has dene its duty in the matter, now let every citizen but do his, and The New Oregon Will We the pride of the Missouri Val ley- DEAD MEN'S AFFAIRS.
