Astoria, Or., Dec. 16. A sur
vey with a view to laying the
foundations tor the city on a per
manent basis, to replace the busi
ness district built on piling which
was destroyed by the fire a week
ago, has been started with the co
operation ot army engineers.
Dredging from the river bed to
fill in the collapsed streets, as
planned, it waB eald, will serve
the double purpose of deepening
the channel of the Columbia river
here and tilling in the mud flat
over which the city had been con
structed in the early days,
Building operations are already
under way. The Astoria Budget,

walls remain standing and work
men are busy, putting on a roof, a
new front and doing other neces
Notwithstanding the work go
ing on here, officials warn un
employed outsiders from flocking
here, as the large number of job
leas men made by the fire are
available for the work here at
present, and the housing situation
would make it difficult to care for
an influx of transients.

The unappropriated waters of
the North Santiam river In Mar
ion county werew tlhdrawn from
appropriation yesterday by Percy
A. Cupper, state engineer, in order
that there may be no complica
tions arising from misunderstand
ings in the securing of water
rights by farmers of the Santiam
valley as planned In a , meeting
held about a week ago.
To secure the rights it will be
necessary for the farmers to call
for investigations by the engineers
office and in this way all doubt
to ownership will be avoided.
Several years ago a number of
farmers of the district filed rights
but the project was not carried
out. If they can secure the same
rights they should be on a more
substantial basis if they were to
make new filings.
The stream Is at present fur
nishing power by being diverted
into the Mill creek at Aumsville
Turner and Salem. Water from
the stream is also the source of
power at tsayton Sidney ana jj
ferson. Irrigation rights have also
been initiated with a view of ir
rigating about 20,000 acres in the
vicinity of West tSayton. A slm
liar amount has been filed for
land in the vicinity of Marlon.
It was explained by Mr. Cupper
that while it may seem a little
more difficult to secure the rights
now than before the appropriation
was withdrawn, In the long run it
will be a benefit to the farmers to
be benefitted. Just such trouule
as disputes over ownersnlp was
responsible for the halting of the
progress of the Santiam valley pro-
ject several years ago. With the
past dry season agitation for irri
gation was renewed and a com
mittee appointed to Investigate.
The future action that will be
taken has not been announced by
the committee. It is expected, how
ever, that they wilj. make every
effort to secure the rights. It was
shown during the past summer
that with irrigation their farms
could be made to produce some of
the best crops in the state. One
farmer raised four tons of logan
berries to the acre while neighbors
were getting from a half a ton to
two tons to the, acre. He also had
one of the best potato crops that
was raised in the country.

Speaking of real estate values
and investments in city proper
ty, Fred Bechtel says he has an
abstract on block 33, original city
of Salem, that will give some idea
of how values of Salem property
increased in the early days.
This block is In the center of
the Salem business" district, bound
ed by Commercial, State, Liberty
and Court streets, the block that
has an assessment higher than
any business block in the city.
In 1855 William H. Wilson and
his wife Cleo Wilson, who had
taken up a government claim of
what is now the center of Salem,
deeded for a consideration of
$1000, the entire block to Thomas
' The same year Powell sold to
Soloman Durbin, the west half of
the block, extending along Com
mercial street the entire length of
the block, and east to the alley,
Six years later, In 1861, Solo
man Durbin sold to his brother
Isaac Durbin, an undivided half
interest in the lot now known as
the southwest corner of the block,
corner of Commercial and State
streets. Salem real estate was go
ing up. The Durbin brothers then
established a livery stable on the
corner, and during their owner
ship, buildings on the corner
were burned two times.
Soloman Durbin's investment
in the block, all facing on Com
mercial street between State and
Courf was a profitable one, as he
not only sold a ' half interest in
the 82 feet on the southwest 'or-
ner to his brother for $1000, but
in 1867 he sold 25 feet facing on
Commercial street for $800.
Thus within 12 years, Soloman
Durbin, who took a chance and in
vested $500 In Salem business
property, had sold part of the
block for $1300, and still was the
owner of more than two thirds of
his original purchase.
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 16. A thor
