Furthermore, only two or three of tha flourmllls tn tha Northwest are equipped to grind substitutes, and then only :imlted quantltlea The others hare no ma chinery to chance their equipment and can not vet such machinery. Therefore, if tha proposed mixed-floor pro mmma goes Into effect, and Congressional action on It Am expected very soon, the mills In tha Northwest will hsve to close down, u ainiri dona so. They can not make anything- but straight flour, and the Government will not buy this straight product, when It begins operating under the new Hoover plan. It Is Mr. Hoover's Idea that all of the allied nations should eat the same una 01 a loaf. They are going to have their mixed flour In Europe and Americans must live on the same fare. " Everyone agrees with Mr. Hoover In this. The people of .Portland are on a 20-part substitute ration now and Ilka It. They do their own mixing at home. It Is proposed by the new rule, however, that the millers must turn out the mixed product, and as they cannot no it who m means at hand, they declare they must close their mills unless the plan Is modi fled In some way. They have sent protests to the Food Administration officials, but unless the dslry and stockmen enlist the aid of the Northwest delegation In Con gTeea, there can be no results. When the mills close down, of course, tha millfeed supply stops. The Shipping Board'! action In allotlng 10 steamera to move the accumulation of flour at Portland and on the Sound will relieve the flour situation temporarily, but If only new wooden steamers are assigned the mill ers are keptlcal as to the outcome, as there Is a possibility that tha flour may become tainted. Even If the wooden vessels should prove satisfactory. It is pointed out that the entire Northwestern output of wooden, aa wall aa steel ships, wilt prove lnsdequate to handle all the flour that should be made from this yeafe wheat crop. Whatever way It goea the atockmen can not get all tha millfeed they want, and they stand a chance to ret none at all un less tha Senators and congressmen -lngton are apprised at onca of tha real sit uation. gMAI-L INTEREST TS CHATS MARKET, Many Members of Trade Visit Astoria on Business Men Excursion. , ' wini-n interest In the grain l nero wa .

Council Will Be Asked to Make Ap propriation ot Approximately 98740 for Keir Department. The city health bureau Is preparine to take over the tuberculosis work in the city, which for the past ten years has been handled by the Visiting- Nurse Association. Recently officers of this org-aniiation notified Mayor Baker that because of the increase in calls follow- inr the growth In population ana tne difficulty in securing funds, the Asso ciation-would discontinue this work. Health Officer Parrish, at the re quest of the Mayor has made a survey to determine tne aaaea neip ana com In maintaining- a department In his bureau to properly look after this Im portant work. According- to nis esti mate it will cost approximately $8740 additional to do this work. Dr. Parrish believes that Portland should have a sanatorium to care for the tuberculosis victims, but his estl-' mate of the yearly cost for taking ovej this work does not include an appro priation for the sanatorium. He is of opinion that the city should first es tablish itself In the work and then secure a suitable sanatorium. Mavor Baker has endorsed r. Par- rleh's plan and the City Council will be asked to pass an ordinance making an appropriation to carry on the work and authorising City Health Officer Parrish to re-organize his department to handle the added burden.

MONEY SITUATION EASIER Continued Favorable War News and Market Rise In Liberty Bonda En courage Baying for Investment. Short Covering Effective. NEW TORK, Sept. 14. With the tock market exhibiting a, trong undertone for the tint time this week, general recoveries from the weakness of the last few days fea tured the Saturday short session "in trading Indications were clear that the stringency In money, to which was attributed the liquida tion which has marked the retrograde movement of speculative issues, had been modified, at least to a limited extent, and this factor and the continued favorable war news, together with a marked rise in lib erty bonds, served to encourage Investment buyers. Short covering at the levels brought about by the recent break also contributed to the firmness, and stacks generally ruled from 1 to 5 points above yesterday's closing Quotations. General Electric and United States Al cohol scored the largest gains, each rising 5 points. United States Steel and other rep resentative issues, including Reading, South ern jfacixic ana Canadian facine, rose Be tween 1 and 2 points, while some of the specialties, which have been in the fore front of the recent decline, made even greater advances. Sales amounted to loO.OOO shares. Analysis of the bank statement disclosed a much smaller decrease in loans than was commonly expected, in view of the drastic liquidation of the week, the retrenchment amounting to only $32,000,000. Surplus bank reserves decreased $33,761, 220. Miscellaneous bonds maintained a good tone in sympathy with the improvement in liberty issues. Total sales, par value, $4,950,- 000. United States bonds, old issues, were unchanged on call for the week. CLOSING STOCK QUOTATIONS. Sales. High. Low. Close. Am jaeet sugar . American Can.. . Am Car 4 Fdry American Loco .

The action of the market this week conveyed the plain inference that many cliques and pools, which contributed to the activity and higher quotations of the previous month, had received aei inite Intimations, if not direct warn ings, to curtail their operations. At the lower level there was a mod erate investment demand, lnaucea oy attractive dividend returns, this apply ing especially to high grade rails ana standard industrials.

Anton E. Erikson. 401 Fourth ave nue, Seattle, was g-iven a stinging- re buke for his apparent un-Amerlcanism in a letter written to him yesterday by John B. Easter, chief clerk of the county naturalization bureau. Erikson on Friday wrote to the naturalization bureau, demanding, that his citizenship papers be canceled. He said he would rather remain a Norwe gian subject than become a citizen of the United States. His declaration of intention was inclosed in the letter. Mr. Easter returned the declaration with a formal notice that it would not be accepted until the Government could make a complete Investigation. He likewise gave the Norwegian a little lesson In Americanism as follow: "A man who renounces allegiance to his sovereign and assumes allegiance to a country that gives him protection and an opportunity to be the equal of any man deserves little consideration at the hands of the authorities when he seeks to avoid serving the country which gave him protection when It needs his services."
