Care should be taken to strain the
lemon juice through a fine cloth so
no lemon pulp gets in, then this

Every woman knows that lemon juice
is used to bleach and remove such
blemishes as freckles, sallowness and

Just try It I Get three ounces of

The case of Z. J. Zlnn. last In the
series of unlicensed jitney drivers to
appear in the police court, was heard
by Judge Race yesterday morning
and being fully advised' of the facts
in the case, and the accused signify
ing his intention to retire from the
business at once, the magistrate dis
missed the case and closed the Inci
dent. The thorn of dissatisfaction
remains with the jitney drivers, how
ever, for the police department can
offer them no assistance in the mat
ter of apprehending drivers of pri
vate cars who cut into their busi
ness; and on the other hand the
j'tney men do not care to take npon
themselves the role of detectives and
attempt to bring the alleged violat
ors to justice.

Rumor Come $ That Laborers
May Come Into Valley
From Hood River
At length there is a glint of sun
shine and encouragement athwarft
the fog that has hung over the labor
situation in this part of the valley.
With a demand for several thdusand
fruit pickers and cannery employes
needed wi.liin the next thirty days,
there has been but a small percent
age mobilized thus far. The matter
has been under consideration by the
Commercial club, the Y. iL C A. and
the Pheasant Northwest Products
company, as well as of a committee
of the Boys Reserve organization,
but with no definite resulu on a
broad scale.
Some days ago negotiations were
opened with the federal labor agent
In Portland, and recently Manager R.
C. Paul us of the Salem Fruit union
went to the metropolis to consult
with the federal representative in
person. As a result he has secured
a promise from R. P. Bonham.- who
is ailing for the government In the
labor field of this state, that a rep
resentative would be" placed' in this
city the first of next week. . It is
proposed ' that an offic be opened
In the rooms recently occupied by
the Red Cross campaign managers,
on State street, and that this, be
irarts a clearing hooes for employers
T","-rr, nlor- tho whole line
of fruit industry- While no details
are forthcoming at this time, tho
loplcsl supposition is that an active
camprgn wHI te carried on to se
en an army of fruit pickers that
will be virtually pledged to the work
en the ground that It Is a patriotic
duty as well as a matter of public
benefit foCcvery "unattached boy,
girT and woman to lend a' hand In
the work.
It has been suggested that In addi
tion to the efforts of other organi
zations, the women's societies of the
city get behind a movement to enlist
tlie women of the city for the work.
One .bit of encouragement that
floats in from Portland Is the fact
that there. I? a surplus of help signed
up for the harvesting of the Hood
River strawberries an Indication
that the crop' In that section is con
siderably short of past seasons.
Judgments Are Rendered
In Circuit Court Cases
Only three or four civil cases have
bee a disposed of la the present term
of court, the first of these being the
case of Emerson Hardwood company
against Andrew Kemp, judgment for
S250.95 beins awarded to the de
fendant. In the case of Koehler
Chase against Savage, suit to recover
on a promissory note, verdict was
rendered to the plaintiff In the sum
of $457.80 with $75 costs. At the
hour of closing last night the case
of Dave' Trester against A. T. Mof
fttt was being staged. This Is a se
quel to the case of Moffitt vs. Tres
ter. in which the latter was accused
of the larceny of a few timbers, and
which was dismissed from the Jus
tice court. Trester now brings suit
against Morfitt for malicious prose
cation. A fourth civil case was dis
missed from the court on motion of
the plaintiff.

Complete Confidence in U-
Boat Protective Measures
Expressed by Both Sides
WASHINGTON-. June 6 Complete
confidence In the measures taken by
the navy to deal with submarine
raiders was expressed in the senate
today by spokesmen on both sides
of the chamber. Senator Lewis of
Illinois. Democratic whip, and Sena
tor Lodge of Massachusetts. Repub
lican, joined In declaring that the
navy was on the alert and ready for
the enemy.
These expressions came In tb
inidst of a sharp debate precipitated
by the reading of Senalor Brand v
ce of Connecticut, of a newspapor
editorial criticising- the navy depart
ment for not warning shipping of the
presence of the submarines.
Commenting on this. Senator
Lewis and Lodge agreed there was
no complaint against the navy, al-
iuii;n iury nau very uuirrt'ni ine
ories as to what possibly drew the
submarines to American shores. Sen
ator Lewis said the attack was In
vited by false statements in congress
and elsewhere regarding the nation's
nnpreparedness; while the 'Massa
chusetts senator suggested "that
loose brags and boasts" about the
number of American troops trans
ported overseas had contributed to
the appearance of the raiders.
Want Another Appropriation.
While this discussion was in pro
gress Secretary Baker sent to con
gress a request for a $16,000,000
appropriation for 16 new balloon and
airplane stations along the Atlantic
and Gulf roasts, to supplement ths
army's preparations for Its part In
