Educators of Salem and Wil-,

plans for the reception to be given-Monday
when John J. Tigert,
United States vducational com
missioner, arrives in the city for
a short visit.
' Mr. Tigert will arrive from
Portland about 10:30 a. m. Mon
day morning and will speak at the
chapel of Willamette university,
beginning about 11:30 o'clock.
At 1 o'clock a luncheon will be
tendered the distinguished edu
cator at the Marion hotel, which
will be attended by about 100 ot
the prominent educators in this
part of the state.

A. Rhoten returned yester-iof
day from a few days visit to the
Washington state fair that was
held at Yakima, during the past
week. He reports the fair as be
ing a huge success from all points
of view.
The exhibits and arrangements
were unexcelled and the atten
dance, while not a record, was
very satisfactory.
"Business condition? in the
Yakima valley are quite good and
fast Improving," says Mr. Rhoten.
"As this year's crops are being
moved at fair prices business as
usual is becoming a fact and not
a hope."

handling of the state' fair crowd
One of Moffitt's theories in re
gard to the birth of the infant
Is that it occurred under extenu-
ating circumstances, pernaps ag
gravated by sudden illness. He
expects to have the case com
pleted for Prosecutor Caraon
within a few days.
"One error in publicity given
this case has been the Inference
that the child was murdered or
rtwHhpratelv thrown from, the
moving train. This may be very
far from the truth when all the
facts are ascertained. It is best to
withhold any condemnation at
present although difficult to un
derstand the mother's motive in
withholding the truth," stated
Moffitt. , .

it taxes its ability properly to care
for the crowds. However, with
the system used, every one was

"The two main hotels, the Don
nelly and the Commercial, co-operated
with the Commercial club
and handled the. situation nicely
without a suspicion of an over
charge. The usual rates were in
effect at the hotels, that is a first
class room where occupied by one
person was charged at $1.50 and
if two or more occupied the same
room an additional charge of 50
cents per person was made. Rooms
with private baths were charged
at a proportionate higher rate.
"The hotels kept a list of the
rooms available in private homes
ond by using the phone and mes
sengers good service was given
and no one waited for a room.
"The hotels refused to list
rooms from outside sources that
wanted to charge in excess of
their rates. As a result the price
was stabilized at once.

000,000 in income and excess prof
its taxes this fitoal year was rec
koned on by the senate finance
committee in revising the house
tax bill with a view to raising
o, 324, 000, i)00 in internal reve
nue in the 12 months ending
June 30.
This was disclosed by the ma
jority report approved today by
committee Republicans and made
public. The estimated total reve
nue is $136,000,000 less than
treasury experts have figured
would be returned this fiscal year
under the present law, but is $84,
000.000 more than the revised to
tal under the house bill.
l$i Charge to Shrinkage
The estimated returns this fis
cal year from income and excess
profit are $1,880,000,000. accord
ing to the report, as against $3,
000.000.000 of actual collections
in the fiscal year ended June 30.
Only about $50,000,000 of this
$1,120,000,000 is accounted for by
the proposed changes. Treasury'
officials and committee members
explained that the remainder is
charged to shrinkage on account
of business depression, diversion
of funds to tax exempt securities
and other causes.
Declaring that the $3,324,000,
000 total proposed under the re
vised bill was only $52,000,000
more than the treasury had esti
mated would have to be raised
through internal taxes the report
said this was "a margin of safety
none too large for the fiscal year
in view of the business depression
and the uncertainty attaching to
the yield of the income and prof
its taxes."
Returns Estimated
"Your committee has acted,"
the report said, "on the assump
tion that except the special rail
road expenditures which will be
nearly if not wholly completed in
the fiscal year 1922, the aggre
gate expenditure for the fiscal
year 1923, will be substantially
as large as in the fiscal year 19 22.
1 ne special rauroaa expenditures
lnciuuefi in ine ivzz nuagei
amount to $500,000,000: and re
ceipts from customs and miseel-
j laneous sources for the fiscal year
1923 are estimated at $730,000,
000. Deducting both amounts
from the- total estimated expendi
tures for 1922 ($4,034,000,000)
leaves in round figures $2,800.-
000,000 to be supplied by internal
taxes for the fiscal year 1923.
Economies Necessary.
"The revenue bill as recom
mended by your committee will
raise during 1923. it is estimated.
$2,735,700,000. The difference or
deficit of $ about
equal to the corresponding surplus
for tne fiscal year 1922 can and
should be avoided by savings and
economics. Your committee rec
ommends a tax program whieh,
while providing revenues substan
tially sufficient to meet ordinary
expenditures on the present scale,
assumes that a reasonable meas
ure of retrenchment and reduc
tions will be accomplished."

Salem is to have another very large and complete lumber
yard and building supply concern, and at once.
The West Side Lumber company commenced laying the
foundations yesterday for its series of sheds and buildings
that are to arise as fast as workmen can put them together
just beyond Pinckney station in West Salem. The office of
the company will front on the Wallace road, about 50 feet
from the Polk county end of the bridge across the Willamette.
Backed by Big Concern
This new company will be back
ed by the Silver Falls Timber
company of Silverton, operating
the immense sawmill plant there
backed for quantity and qual
ity and prompt delivery. The
quality of the yellow fir of this
concern is of ? the very best.
The manager of the West Side
Lumber company will be Paul
Morse, who was for two years with
the Long-Bell company, of Kan
sas City, a lumber company with
a nation-wide business and repu.
tation. He was also for the same
length of time with the Bnrgner-
Bowman Lumber company of the
same city.
Mr. Morse is the son-in-law of
Dr. B. U Steeves. With Mrs.
Morse, he had ' already ordered
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24. Alfred Semnacher de
clined to repeat aloud from the witness istand today the de
tails of Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle's description of his treat
ment of Miss Virginia Rappe at the rcVel which led to tho
girl's death and instead wrote them out on a paper which
he showed to the attorneys and to Police Judffe Sylvian.

mm comedian. ,
He first said that Arbuckle's story of the incident, told
to himself. Lowell Sherman, Fred Fischbach and Arbuckle's -chauffeur,
Harry McCullough, and which involved the use
of ice, caused a general laugh. When the details were de
manded, he objected to testifying verbally.
No one remonstrated at Arbuckle's tale, according to the
witness, who said it was told in Arbuckle's suite at the Hotel
St. Francis where the drinking party had taken place the
afternoon before. Other conversation about the affair. was
limited to discussion of the intoxicated condition of some
of the participants, Semnacher said. He testified yesterday
that he had only coffee to drink. I
Episcopal and Baptist Cler

Sincerity Questioned,
Although the genuineness of
debate scheduled for the armory
at 2:30 o'clock this' afternoon on
the Irish question has been chal-t
lenged by a Salem minister, and
a controversy has arisen between
him and Edward Adams Cantrell,
one of the debaters, indications
are that strong interest will be
taken in the argument by the
people of Salem. The clash, in
fact, has served to advertise the
debate and doubtless will have
the effect of adding to the at
tendance. The speakers are Mr. Cantrell,
who is an Episcopal clergyman,
and Rev. W. L. Brandon, a Bap
tist minister, advertised as com
ing from Kansas City. Dr. V.
T. Miiliken, pastor of the Salem
Baptist church, has questioned the
qualifications of Mr. Brandon and
in published letters has suggested
that the debate is possibly a hip
pod romed affair to serve as prop
aganda for the Irish cause.
Mr. Cantrell, on the other
hand, and the religious editor of
the Portland Telegram, aver that
Brandon is sincere, and a bona
fide Baptist minister, who be
lieves the Irish movement is in
the interest of the Catholic church
and should not be supported by
Protestant people.
Letters that have passed be
tween Cantrell and Miiliken
through the medium of the press
are extremely torrW.
Some of the Salem pastors have
agreed to announce the debate
from their pulpits today.

There was very- little discussion
ot Miss Rappe's death en route, be
said, and none at all about Ar

Semnacher was the first wit
ness to be subjected to question-
I ing by the defense, and these in
quiries were but few. Aside from
his .statement regarding Arbuck
le's conduct at the party, the de
fense drew from him aa admission
that Frank Dominguex, chielde-.
fense counsel, bad told him to tell
the entire truth to Captain of De
tectives Duncan Matheson, and
that the defense had never heard
his version of the case.:
The prosecution Introduced as
exhibits the garments which Sem
nacher said Miss Rappe wore on
the occasion at the St. Francis .
and Dominguex asked the witness
if he had seen Arbuckle wear Miss
