ST. LOUIS, June 8. Reductions in
the wholesale prices of various
styles of shoes of from 25 cents to
$- a pair were announced today by
officials of three of the largest shoe
manufacturing establishments here.
The reductions are on all ship
ments made after June 1, it was ex
plained, and are retroactive to autumn
orders placed prior to June 1.
The companies announcing the re
ductions are the International Shoe
company, the Hamilton-Brown Shoe
company, and the Brown Shoe com
pany. Officials emphasized that the
new prices were not the result of
an agreement by the three firms.
A. C. Brown, president of the Hamilton-Brown
Shoe company, asserted
that "tight money" and the resultant
difficulty of retailers to borrow
money was the chief cause of the
lowered prices. Reduced prices of
certain grades of leather were as
signed as a contributory cause.
Shoes that formerly sold at whole
sale for $12 a pair have come down
to as low as $10.
NEW TORK, June 8. The Standard
Oil company of New York today re
duced the price of petroleum three
fourths of a cent, making refined in
cases 26 cents a gallon, refined in
tanks 14 'i cents, and standard white
in barrels 24 54 cents.
NEW TORK, June 8. Bar. silver
fell in the local market today about
10 cents to 84 cents an ounce. The
further slump was due chiefly to re
ports from London that another se
vere decline amounting to about 6
pence had occurred there. The col
lapse abroad was attributed to heavy
selling for account of East India and
Chinese interests, together with mod
erate offerings from continental
SAN FRA.VCISCO. June 8. Evi
dence intended to prove that the
Utah-Idaho Sugar company absorbed
competitons and restricted trade in
violation of the federal trade com
mission act, was adduced in a hear
ing before J. J. Dunham, an ex
aminer for the fcommiseion, here to
day. According to tho testimony, the
company in 1916 absorbed a refinery
built by local subscription at Grants
Pass, Or., and endeavored without
success, to buy the Beet Growers
' Sugar company at Rigby, Idaho.
George K. Sanders, former inde-
pendent sugar producer of Salt Lake
City, whose activities In behalf of the
preeent Investigations were outlined
by United States Senator Sraoot of
Utah on the floor of the senate, was
called to testify.
A letter purporting to have been
written by John W. Hart, Mormon
church official of Kigby, Idaho, was
introduced by the government tojiay
in support of its contention that the
. Utah-Idaho Sugar corporation at
tempted to force its competitors out
of business. The letter was directed
to Mark Austin, field superintendent
- of the Utah-Idaho concern, and told
. of the operations of an Independent
sugar concern at Rigby.

cost of necessities of life, which are
general throughout France, are re
ported by several newspapers today.
Some say that the attitude of - the
public in buying only what is strictly
necessary has much to do with a fall

Oregon City Live Wires Adopt
. Resolution of Thanks. .
OREGON CITT, Or., June 8. (Spe
cial.) The firemen's banquet com
mittee of the Live Wires has com
pleted all arrangements for tomor
row night. Al Price, chairman of the
committee, reported at the wires'
noonday luncheon Tuesday that pro
vision has been made to seat 200 and
the banquet will be held in the Ma
sonic lodgeroom. A gooa programme
has been arranged. In addition to
the regular programme, moving pic
tures of the Portland fire department
will be exhibited.
A letter from Fire Chief Dowell of
Portland to Al Price was read and
acknowledged Price's letter of thanks
for the firemen's assistance at the
last big fire.
The wires adopted a resolution of
appreciation for the work of th
Portland fire department for its aid
during the last fire.

can Legion asked for and received

Two grave constitutional questions
have arisen as a result of the sudden
adjournment of congress. The first
is, can the president still sign and
approve the waterpower bill and the
other measures which remained un
approved when congress adjourned?
When congress is in session the presi
dent has ten days in which to ap
prove or disapprove a measure and
if he fails to act on it in that time
it becomes a law without his signa
ture. The practice has been to regard
signature of a bill after congress
has adjourned as Illegal. A school
of constitutional lawyers has arisen
which asserts , that in the instance
of an adjournment like this the ten
day provision actually is effective.
Opinion Is 'Wanted.
Friends of the waterpower bill,
acting through cabinet members, are
seeking an opinion from the attorney
general upholding their theory in the
hope that the president, in the even
of such an opinion, will sign the
waterpower bill. Inasmuch as th
ten days provided in the constitu
tion do not include Sundays, he would
have until Friday to act. It is under
stood that Secretary Payne has
agreed to recommend approval in
the event that the attorney-general'
opinion is forthcoming.
The second question is, may th
president appoint the new and en
larged shipping board under the term
of the new merchant marine bill be
fore the senate is in session to con
firm those appointments? In some
quarters it is held that the language
of the bill does not permit the presi
dent to make recess appointments and
that therefore the new board cannot
be constituted until congress resumes
Another set of lawyers maintains
that he may make the appointment
in recess. Also it is contended tha
if it is demonstrated that he ma
not make recess appointments to th
new board it is equally certain tha
he may not fill the existing vacancies
on the old board. This matter also
will be up to the attorney-general
for settlement. In the meantime, th
shipping board itself is in doubt as
to its status and is not disposed to
take affirmative action on anything
Also, in the meantime, suggestion
are pouring in for appointments on
the new board. The most significan
of these is the suggestion that Joseph
N. Teal, an attorney of Portland and
a democrat, be appointed as the North
Pacific coast member.

PARIS, June 8. The entire question

the sums Germany will pay In repara

THE AFTER-SMART OF SHAVING
IS ALLAYED BY S ANTISEPTIC
MANX men who would like to ehave
themselves, dread the after-smart
caused by using the razor daily on
a tender skin. To all such we recom
ment Santiseptic Lotion; it not only
allays the smarting and soreness, but
it acts as well as an antiseptic, pro
tecting the face from Infection. The
sense of security from Infection that
you enjoy from the use of Santiseptic
is especially reassuring. Santiseptic,
too. is aeiisntiuiiy cooling ana re-
reehias; it leaves the ekiu with soft.
velvety finish which bespeaks th
healthy, well-groomed man. There is
no shave "too close'" when Santiseptic
is used. The odor of Santiseptic is
wholesome and cleanly. Unlike many
preparations, it Is not sticky. To
use it in your daily shave is to en
Joy a real luxury. Santiseptic i
