WINSTOCK COMMENTS ON ARMAMENT CONFERENCE Melvin G, Winstock, Oregonian of long standing, was in Cottage Grove Wednesday oil business and called ou The Sentinel long enough to touch briefly on his great hobby “ The Limitations o f Arina neat Conference.“ Mr. Winstock, since October 1, has delivered addresses on this subjeet in Portland, Heat tie, Tacoma, Bellingham, Eugene, Corvallis ami many other cities, and he regretted that time did not permit mi hires» at Cottage Grove. “ A ft said, “ that cost in I*. . 1 ween 35 and 40 iiu ', .. wounded and missing r i , n gold; that incredibly .ah i ■ »t national debt o f every i.

We, who have com milted no international crime, this year sptuid twice that sum for military mid naval expense. Continuance of this procedure is a crime against the people. “ And yet we have men in the land, who for partisan political purposes an nounce violent opposition to the rntifi cation o f the four nation agreement. “ The good citizen of Cottage Grove can perform no higher act of patriot isin or human service than not only to approve Am erica’s course but to frown down on every effort to divide our country’s sentiment on this stupendous w ork.“ nUncle Burne” Veatch, Resident of Cottage Grove Country 6 8 Years, Passes Beyond in Ninety-fourth Year A machine gun unit o f mux ini um “ Uncle Hume “ Veatch, one of the Htrcuglh is i he goal set by K.

With the temperature hovering about the free/ iug point every night, and not rising near far enough in daytime to meet the approval o f Webfooters, and with almost enough snow on the ground for coasting, the youngster», most o f whom have only a bowing acquaintance with this variety o f weather, have been having the time o f their young lives while older folk, muffled in many clothes and shivering, pray for the warm drizzle and the balmy spring atmosphere that belong» to Oregon. Small fruits and vegetables, which had been continuing blithely upon their way to Cottage Grove tables, and flowers and plant» which had flour ¡shed throughout the fall and winter, have succumbed to the frost king, and, should the present temperature con tinue much longer, the strident, voice o f the ice skater and the thwack of the hockey stick will be heard in the land. There has been very little snow-. The temperature for the past week has been as follows; Min. Max.

J. S. Benson writes from his W olf Creek ranch that he thinks the price o f The Sentinel is too high but that he has learned that all good things come high. As he must have the best, he sends his check, with the wish that it may receive as warm a welcome as tin* live wire newspaper does each week. GRANGE DESERVES PART OF CREDIT FOR CANNERY In the report o f the open forum of the chamber of commerce, published December lti, there was ur inadvertent omission which made it appear that the chamber o f commerce was entirely responsible for tho establishment of the cannery. The speaker who referred to the establishment of the cannery was tho president o f tho commercial club at the time the final drive for subscriptions for the cannery was made and well remembers that the grange took a part equally as active as that o f the chamber, which fact was mentioned at tho open forum meeting. As a matter of fact, tho can nery was first proposed by the grange, which solicited the cooperation o f the commercial club. While the larger part of the funds was raised inside, the city, yet the committee which visited the producers put in tho greater amount of effort due to the fact that those to be seen were greatly scattered and to the fact that subscriptions came in smaller amounts. The Sentinel corrects the error so that all may get tho credit due them. Higher Gas Tax Is Proposed. County Judge C. 1*. Barnard is re sponsible for the introduction und passage o f a resolution at the annual convention of county judges and com missioners in Portland favoring the in crease ill the tax on gasoline from 2 to 5 cents u gallon, the proceeds to bo devoted to road uiaiuteneiiee and ap portioned as follows: Two cents to the state highway fund and 3 cents to the county of its origin. When presented by Judge Barnard the resolution provided (bat 3 cents should go to the state highway fund and 2 cents to the counties, blit the association reversed the proportions in favor o f tho counties. LYCEUM COURSE NUMBER CANCELLED The second number o f the high school lyeeuin course, N'- Pomoceno's Filipino qunrtet, will not be presented, as advertised, at the liigli school and itorium Monday evening, December 20, owing to the ban of the health otfiee on attendance at public gatherings of those under IS years o f ago. This company, or one substituted for it, will appear here at u later date, according to Principal Hargreaves, of the high school, who was ill eoniiimni -lition with tho Kllison White l.yccuni bureau Tuesday. A number o f other meetings and en tertninmeiits have also been jiostpoiied. Grange Elects Officers. Cottage (trove grange lias elected the following officers: M. M. Wheeler, master; 0. W.

How ever, A. W. Helliwcli, o f Helliwell, things and Markshury, has found it at least dangerous. l’ urtici|>ntiiig in that kind of exercise resulted for him in tearing loose some o f tho ligaments near the heart. The doctor ordered him to spend several days at home, and that right during the holiday rush. He was able to get back on the job Tuesday. NEW ELECTRIC RATES MAY NOT BE USED Local Light and Power Company May Voluntarily Inaugurate Lower Schedule. Tlio Sentinel hud intended this week to publish a comprehensive statement of the new electric light and power rates ordered by the public service compassion. Upon preparing such a statement, however, it found that, in some instances the rates were not only not lower than former rates but had been, iu some instances, actually raised, notably in the rates for power and for commercial cooking ou a metered basis. The situation was premmted to the officials of the electric company, who stated that they were dissatisfied with the situation and really wished for a reduction in rate». The Hentinei sug gested that if a reduction were the desire it was within the power o f the company itself to initiate such reduc tion, the rates set by the commission being maximum rates only. Manager ►Shinn seemed to be o f the opinion that such a reduction could not be initiated without giving notice of 30 days to the commission and immediately ar ranged with Mayor Knowles to make a trip with him to ttulem to have a session with the public service com mission, which trip was made Wednes day but too late for The »Sentinel to give a report o f the results. Libert Bede, editor of The »Sentinel, is in Salem and expects to be present at tho meeting. He already has in terviewed the members of the commis sion and finds that the rates shown in the commission’s order were such as were thought to be fair and equitable without particular regard as to whether or not they were a reduction. He also has learned that it is within the power o f the electric company to put into immediate effect any reductions in rate which it may desire, being only prohibited from going above the rates set by the commission. In view o f the fact that Manager Shinn has indicated that he wishes to put into effect rates whieh will be satisfactory to patrons o f his company and to the fact that it is possible for him to do so, The Sentinel anticipates that the schedule o f rates fixed by the commission never will become effe c tive. For this reason it would be wasted effort to publish a table com paring these rates with past rates. All the rates shown in the new schedule fixed by the commission in elude a charge o f 50 cents for service or overhead before a charge for service is made. This fact results in no re duction to the patron using on lf a small amount o f power. FAIR MAY BE FINANCED BY TAX ON GASOLINE Resolution to Levy Additional One Cent a Gallon lor Purpose Is Passed by House. Salem, Ore., Dec. 21.—The house of representative* of the special sessiou of th- Oregon legislature late tonight passed a resolution levying an addi tional tax of one coat a gallon on gas oliue to produce funds to support the proposed world exposition in Portland in 1925. The vote was 45 to 11 with one member absent, and was taken after a lengthy debate. The resolution now goes to the senate. The eity o f Portland has voted to levy a tax o f $2,000,000. An additional million will be raised by popular sub scription and the resolution passed to night is designed to raise $3,000,000 from tlio state at large. An easy pas sago through the senate is indicated. Tho resolution is a proposed consti tutional amendment which will lie re ferred to the people. The proposition of a direct tax to finance the fair ran up against a legal snag and had to be abandoned and tho gasoline lax measure is a compromise bill. The new bill is a copy o f tho first except that the funds to finance tho exposition are to come from the gasoline tax, botli having been pre seated by Representative Kubli. At the 0 o ’clock adjournment the house seemed about ready to vote ou this, with the assurance that it would pass by u good majority, and that a bill by Representative Fletcher to raise the gasoline tax from two to three cents would be given immediate considera tion and it, too, go through on greased ways. A losing fight was waged by the op ponents o f any state tax for the pro motion of an exposition and also by those who wished to make some vital amendments. While the gasoline tax is not exactly satisfactory, either to proponents or oppoueuts, yet it seems tho only f i nancing measure possible to get liy tho session aud tho most likely to get by tho people, t<> whom it will bo re ferred. Miss Marjorie and Miss Muriel Shay are expected home tomorrow for tho holidays. Miss Marjorie has been vis iting at Kelkig, Idaho, for the past three months, aud Miss Muriel is teach ing iu tho public schools at Nyssa, iu eastern Oregon. Little girls sure would be delighted to havo the nifty now play house at tho Silver Star Exchange. Also, play table and chairs. d2.!e. Miss Martha iluey Johnson is homo from tho U. o f O. for tho holidays. Miss Alice Garetson is also a guest at the Johnson heme. The Sentinel wants all the news all the time.
