FIGHT ON HIGH COST
mm RESULTS
Prices Easing Off, Attorney
General Is Told.
ELEVEN CASES BROUGHT
September 1. Application for the per
mit was made by Fred T. Merrill, presi
' dent of the association, who explained
that the movement had been indorsed
by Harry Anderson, president of tne
Central Labor 'Council, and that tne
round-up would be in conjunction with
the annual observance of Labor day.
A portion of the proceeds will go
into the treasury -of' organized labor.
A special permit was necessary, in
view of the fact that a city ordinance
prohibits any circusOr kindred attrac
tion that mlKht conflict - with Labor
day plans. Acting Mayor Bigelow and
Commissioner Pier' said they would
not vote to allow auto races on the
speedway. - and plans for these con
tests were abandoned.
Salts Seek Seizure of Hoarded Food
in Eat and Sonth; Chicago
Sugar Dealer Arrested.
WASHINGTON, An-, to. Attorney
General Palmer said today there was
evidence that the government campaign
to reduce -the cost of living; already
was bearing; fruit. A prominent vege
table packer o! Maryland wrote Mr.
Palmer that prices in many lines were
beginning to ease off as It became evi
dent the department of justice mean
business in announcing; that criminal
prosecution against hoarders an
profiteers would be instituted when
ever the laws were violated.
"We want to make clear, however,
the attorney-general said, "that noth
ing w can do can change the ittimut
able economic laws on which prices de
pend. If we can increase the supply
by greater production and lessen the
demand by greater saving on tne part
of the people, then the cost of living
should come down, we can help tba
along by forcing hoarders to put on
the market food held out for an ad
vance in prices and further by holding
tip to public scorn or by prosecuting if
congress gives us the criminal amend'
jnent to the food control law, those
who are guilty of trying to exact
Kreater profit than is reasonable and
Just, we are going to make the mar
Vet that Is the law of supply and de
mandoperate normally Instead of ar
"tiflclally."
Hearts Stores DiatiasTnlshesL
The attorney-general anS Judge
Ames, his assistant, drew distinctions
which they said the public should recog
nize between hoarded food and stored
lood. The former Is held out of the
market In greater quantities than re
quired for the owner's business for the
purpose of forcing up the market. The
latter is surplus husbanded from the
harvest to the lean season.
It was made clear, though, that all
food proved to be hoarded would be
put on the market. United States mar
shals probably will administer its dis
position, but whether sales will be
made direct to the public or through
retailers under a guarantee of fair
prices has not been decided.
Reports to the attorney-general from
tata food administrators Indicated that
lair-price boards rapidly were being set
tip In many states and were proceeding
to get pledges from dealers to abide
by the prices promulgated for the guld
ance of the public.
The department of justice announced
that 11 cases had been brought under
:the food control act for the seisure of
food In Columbus. Ga.; St. Louts. De
troit. Chattanooga and Kansas City.
Prestdeatlal rriee Fixing Fassjbt.
Proposed amendments to the food
control act which would authorise the
president to fix wholesale and retail
prices of certain commodities were
xtrongly opposed today by Attorney
lieneral Palmar. Appearing before the
house agriculture committee to urge
epeedy enactment of additional laws to
help reduce the cost of living, the attorney-general
declared such executive
power would be too drastic, and would
provoke so much debate in congress as
to delay passage of other amendments
suggested by the department of Jus
tice. The department has recommended
that provisions of the food control act

The general fire situation in forestry

has been as serious as it is today.
according to forestry officials. New
fires are breaking out, old blazes ure
beyond control, spreading over the
country, and coupled with these facts
are the reported vicious actions of in
cendiaries in the woods, who not only
have set fires in Isolated spots, but
have in several instances severed con
nections between the fire-fighting
crews and the outside world.
Communication with the Clearwater
forest was severed by members of a
Crew comir.e out from the fires, cutting
telephone lines. Thirty men were in
the crew whicn passed out along the
telephone line, which before they left,
forestry officials report, were in per
fect working order. After they had
passed out, all communication was cut.
Investigation revealed that the govern
ment line had been cut in seven places
and the wires wrapped around trees.
Fires in the Salmon mountain district
of the Bitter Root forest ran wild over
the country south of the Bitter Root
valley, fanned by high winds. The
White Cap fires also are very bad.
They have escaped all control lines.
So severe are the blazes in the Selway
forest of Central Idaho that at three

territory covered, but experts say that
more than 1000 acres of good timber
has been burned over. The Hammond
Lumber company is the principal loser
thus far.
There are only two fires now in the
Santlam national forest. One of these,
along Canal creek, between Mountain
Peak and Quartzville, is a good sized
fire. The forest telephone station In
that vicinity was burned recently and
no direct word has of lats been received
from this fire, so its extent is nol
known.
The other fire has been burning four
or five days three to four miles east
of Detroit. It has covered between 80
and 100 acres.

SALEM, Or., Aug. 20. (Special.)
Penitentiary officials this morning re
ceived a telegram from Sheriff Roberts
of Deschutes county to the effect that
D. C. Brichoux, who, in company with
Edward Southwick, escaped recently
from a truck while being taken from
the state hospital to the prison flax
fields, in the vicinity of Turner, had
been seen In the Bend country. The
telegram stated also that the fugitive
was heavily armed.
This information leads the officers
here to believe that Brichoux and
Southwick separated soon after passing
through Reedsport a few days ago, and
that both of the men are now making
their way to their former homes.
Brichoux was committed to the peni
tentiary from Malheur county, while
Southwick was sentenced from Wal
lowa county. They were later trans
ferred from the prison to the state hos
pital for medical treatment.
Immediately following receipt of
Sheriff Roberts' telegram state officials
notified him to exert every possible ef
fort, to recapture Brichoux and return
him to the penitentiary.
Wallowa county officials have been
notified regarding the place Southwick
was laat seen, and it is believed he will
be arrested in the event he attempts to
visit his former haunta.
Dr. Griffiths, superintendent of 1 the
state hospital, this morning received a
letter from Miss Florence Southwick,
who, at the time of her brother's escape
was thought to have been implicated in
the plot. She Is now in Namoa. Idaho.
and informed Dr. Griffith that she has
.neither seen nor heard from her brother
since he escaped. She promised to no
tify Dr. Griffith in case the fugitives
visit that section of the country.
At the time of the escape Miss South
wick was employed as a domestio in
Salem.
Brichoux was serving a life term for
murder, while Southwick was sentenced
to a maximum term of 20 years for
larceny and assault with intent to kill.

Save the Babies.
INFANT MORTALITY is something frightM. We can hardly realize that of all
the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., or nearly one-quarter,
die before they reach one year; thirty-seven per cent.- or more than one-third, before
they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen !
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save many of
these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these infantile
deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures and sooth
ing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium or morphine.
They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity, they stupify,
retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. There can be no danger
in the use of Castoria if it bears the signature of Ohas. H. Fletcher as it contains no
opiates or narcotics of any kind.
