His friends declared that Clark 'never
went to bed without a supply of cigar
ettes at the bedside and on several oc
casions he had started a fire in the
bedding from sparks. This Is the
only plausible explanation for the
night fire. When neighbors reached
the scene the house was wrapped in
flames. Clark was seen to stagger
forth and drop at the doorway. He was
dead when dragged away.
Clark was 60 years of age. He was
known to virtually everyone in Baker
County, where he settled when a lad.

WILSON TO CUT COST
Budget System in Government
Is Economy Plan.
IDEA TO GO TO CONGRESS
House Appropriations Committee
Begins Work and legislative, Ex
ecutive, Judicial Bills to Be
Ready for New Session.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 23. President
Wilson is giving careful consideration
to means for reduction of Government
expenditures next year because of the
European war, it was learned today,
and is aiming toward a budget system
to co-ordinate expenditures and Income.
Mr. Wilson plans to give more atten
tion to appropriations hereafter than
he was able to do last year, because of
the press of other business. In his
writings before he became President
he advocated the budget system, includ
ing the presence in Congress of th?
Secretary of the Treasury to explain
the Administration's estimates.
Economy Need Pointed Out. ' .
It is expected the President will
refer to this question in his forthcom
ing message to Congress and will give
particular attention to it in conferences
he ia to begin soon with Congressional
leaders with regard to the programme
for the short session.
,The President already has discussed
expenditures at several Cabinet meet
ings and impressed on the Secretaries
the necessity for economy. He has been
told, however, that the beginning of
new Governmental activities, such ' as
the Trade Commission and the Federal
Reserve Bank system, will necessitate
some new appropriations.
Activity of Short Session Begins.
The activities of the short session
really opened today when the House
appropriations committee began hear
ings on the District of Columbia appro
priation bill. A sub-committee will be
gin work Thursday on the legislative,
executive and judicial appropriation
bill. .. v
The plan of the appropriations com
mittee is to have those two supply
measures ready by the time Congress
convenes, December 7. The legislative
act for the current fiscal year appro
priated $37,600,000, and the estimates on
the coming year exceed the current ap
propriation by $3,000,000, which is
exactly the estimate for a proposed
agricultural estimate census. The dis
trict current appropriation is $12,000,
000. Estimates for next year approx
imate the same figures.
Hearings on the naval appropriation
bill will begin Monday.

are so many seeking Jobs in the woods
that would-be guards are required to
pass the assistant forester civil serv
ice test before their applications are

Let Us Solve Your Christmas Gift
The Manufacturers' Emergency and
Surplus Sale now being conducted by
Ellsworth, Barnes and Davey has cer
tainly been the biggest piano-selling
event Portland has ever Known. The
big- piano house of Eiiers, Broadway at
Alder, enjoyed by far the biggest Sep
tember ever known since the estab
lishment of the .house, many years ago,
and October was even greater than Sep
tember, over S6,000 worth of piano
business being done in that month. The
manufacturers figure on keeping the
wheels of their great institutions go
ing and to get rid of the surplus stock
which has accumulated they have prac
tically eliminated all of their profit.
They made us a proposition that they
would sell every piano we had in stock
in a limited amount of time if we
would agree to buy three pianos for
every two their representatives sold,
they to make all discounts and pay all
the advertising. Under this arrange

establishment to them.
