The Blanket License Is Opposed by
It Is the almost unanimous sentiment
of the business men of Salem that the
blanket license ordinance introduced at
the last Besslon of the city council
should be killed. For the welfare of
the city, it should never be reported
back from tho committee.
"Every day will be Sunday bye and
byo" If the now license ordinance Is
passed. This is what nine-tenths of
tho Salem business men say. They say
tho reaction will be terrible.
The only business it Is not proposed
to tax is the fanoy houses. That Is
probably an oversight, as It Is a busi
ness that several of the council have on
various occasions shown an inclination

Charged Tho Journal With
Tho real estate transfers record the
disgorgement of a valuable piece of real
estate that was swallowed up by a
shark In that profession if there ever
It is tho reconveylng of choice resi
dence property with Improvements on
State street by W. A. S haw to Mrs.
Elizabeth Joseph. The facts In the
case are that Mrs. Joseph is a widow,
whoso mind bos for some time been af
fected by disease, and who Is said to be
unfamiliar and unskilled in business,
and who Is believed by her friends to
be disqualified to protect her property
rights against the schemes of unscru
pulous traders and designing real estate
Some tfme in 1892 one W. A. Shaw,
a Salem real estate dealer, Induced her
to deed her property on State street to
him for the sum ot $6000. It is her
home and when it was gone she had
nothing else in the world to fall back
upon, and upon moving out Shaw took
possession and Mrs. Josepti occupied a
room on the second floor In the post
office block, moving out of there a few
days after tbo blank cartridges were
fired at this same man Shaw in the
hallway of that blocK about a month
upon which Mrs. Joseph was Induced
to part with her property were these
Shaw gave her $250 down, and twenty
three notes of $250 each, one payable
each year for 23 years, and the last pay
able in the year 1016, without Interest
and without security by mortgage, en
dorser or otherwise. For tbls worthless
unsecured paper she gave him a deed
and he exacted a promise to keep silent
to everyone about the transaction ex
cept to say to anyone who asked that
she bad sold the property for $6000.
Soon after the shooting affair which
took place near her door Mrs. Joseph
became more suspicious of Shaw and
urged her counsel to press a suit in
equity to recover her property. Shaw's
lawyers advised him to get out of it by
deeding back the property at once, and
that has been done. MrsTJoeepu keeps
her $250, crediting It on the notes that
were to draw no interest and would
have been payable to the old lady
mostly after her death and along in the
first quarter of the next century. Such
Is Shaw. Where will be turn up next
aud why don't the newspapers that
want blm or The Journal men sent
to the penitentiary tell the news about
Mr. Shaw ?
