Daue's itore, erected by Hugh Owen In 18S9 when thit locality wai called Sleepy Hollow, has been owned and operated by the Daue family since 1889. It may be Salem'i oldest business in respect to continuity of ownership. South Salem Building Has Impressive History By BEN MAXWELL - Daue's store, 1003 South Commercial street, a Sleepy Hollow landmark dating back ' ,to the late 1860's, may also be Salem'i oldest retail business in respect to continuity of ownership. Salem Unionist (the Oregon Statesman had lost its identity to become the Unionist) for August S, 1889, announced that Hugh Owen was about to let contract for a building 24 by 60 feet to be erected in South Salem at a cost of $3230. Two days later the Unionist proclaimed that improvements in South Salem belied the common reference to this locality as "Sleepy Hollow." Now South Salem has two circular sawmills, a flour mill, a brewery, wagon shop, machine shop, sash and door factory, chair factory and a black-smithery. Indeed, with Owen's new brick store building being added to this progressiva community,, the place was "no longer Sleepy Hollow." The Unionist was hot specific, but it is likely the following enterprises were located south of Mission street which was the southern boundary of Salem in 1869. The J. II, Moores steam flour and sawmill, Westacott's brewery, D. L. Bigg's machine shop, H. S. Jory's wagon shop and the J..E. Witten sawmill. John H. Moores arrived tn Salem in 1853 and for many years was a leading merchant here. He served as mayor of Salem, represented Marion county in the legislature and acquired valuable saw and flour milling properties. J. H. Moores died December 18, 1880. H. S. Jory specialized in making agricultural machine and particularly Jory's Improved Fanning Mill. D. L. Rlggs had a machine shop at Cincinnati in 18S3 (how Eola) and there built the first steam engine erected In thU locality. Louis Westa-cott started his pioneer ale brewery in 1886. Hugh Owen, who was operating his new store at least until 1874, has Owen street named in his honor. Mrs. Caroline Daut acquired the Owen's store in 1889 and Lewis and Albert Daue succeeded A. L. Buckingham in the business. Ever since 1889, over an interval of 64 years, the store has been owned and operated by some member of the Daue family. Present pro prietor is Elmer Daue, merchant and collector of arche-ological and pioneer relics. If Daue's store that occupies the Sleepy Hollow landmark erected by Hugh Owens 84 years ago is not the oldest store in Salem in respect to continuity of ownership cer tainly it is among the older.

Tut plantings in 1946 of Port Orford cedar have been able to compete in growth with the gone and may eventually eliminate the shade Intolerant plant. Maritime pine and lodgeoole pine were also tried but could not compete with the gone. More than 80 per cent of the Port Orford cedar plantings survived the Intense competition of the gone and. showed excellent growth. Gone, which closely resembles Scotch broom has become a serious problem in the coastal counties and central valley re gion of Oregon, taking; ever valuable farm and forest lands. The tenacious and spiny slant Is nigh In all content and constitutes a serious fire hazard. Foraiteri have laid partial blame for the 1986 Bands fire disaster upon the Inflammable qualities of gone. - The plant was brought te Bendon more than 60 years ago from the British Isles for urn as aa ornamental shrub. .

Spectacular redwood forests and thriving dairy, shipping and fishing industries are among the reasons why businesses and people have been flocking to Eureka in recent yean. The population is one and half times what it was in 1940 and the city's income has soared. This amazing growth meant that the telephone had to grow fast, too, to keep pace with Eureka's demands for service. And to meet the challenge we're grown faster than ever before in our history. 21) 1 f! yf 7 : m J; I - . .) S. We're) still growing in Eureka. Sines the war, we va added three million dollars to our investment in tela phone facilities in Eureka nearly three times the total investment in the city's telephone system in 1946.

Bringing dial telephones to Eureka last year at a cost of $1,300,000 waa only one phase of our huge construction program. This conversion affected more than 11.000 telephones, about 6,000 more than were at work in Eureka in 1945. These new telephones make all Eureka telephones mors useful and valuable. For a Eureka customer can get in touch with more of his neighbors, more can call him. Pacific Telephone $436 for each telephone added since World War II There's a surprising amount of money tied up in the facilities added to serve each telephone ... an average of $436 per telephone we serve in the Pacific Yftat, That's more than double what it was for the prewar period.
