Ambassador George Harvey
Makes Frank Speech to
Audience at Liverpool
Chamber of Commerce.
Policy Enunciated by George
Washington Must be Ad
hered to Strictly
LIVERPOOL, Nov. 3. George
Harvey, United States ambassador
to Great Britain, told an audience
at the Liverpool Chamber of
Commerce tonight that it was fu
tile to hope that, .America, as Lord,
Derby had recently suggested,
may some day be merged in a defi
nite alliance with England and
This statement was made as a
digression from an address on ec
onomics and the international in
dustrial situation, x which the
ambassador attacked communism
and socialism and defended indi
vidualism. Ierby Speech JtccaUed
He recalled Lord Derby' state;
ment in a address in Birming
ham, in which the latter voiced
the conviction that the success of
the Washington conference would
mean peace, and its failure would
mean war in the iKTmediate fu
ture.. He also recalled Lord Derby's
suggestion to former President
Po'.ncare of France, that an Anelo
French alliance would be desir
able in the interests of peace, inti
mating the . "strong hope" that
America might eventually join, the
Hope Declared, Futile
"Now it seems to have fallen
to my unhappy lot, since I have
been in England," continued the
ambassador, "to dispel illusions
respecting the attitude, of the
United States. I can conceive of
no, more effective service on the
part of an envoy than to set forth
frankly any certainty which may
bear on the immediate future,
however disappointing it may be
to his hearers. I feel impelled to
say frankly that the hope voiced
by Lord Derby must -be regarded
as futile.
"Our first president fixed the
forpign policy of the Unite
States clearly and unequivocally
when he abjured his countrymen
never to enter a permanent alli
ance with any other power. This
policy has been reaffirmed by
practically all his successors. It
was reiterated with great positive
ness in our latest national cam
paign by our present president
and was confirmed by a majority
of the people.
Ambassador Speaks Frankly
"In view of . these circumstances
am I doing more than stating the
wholly obvious and Inescapable
fact when I pronounce . the en
trance of. the, United. SaWes into
any permanent alliance, however
desirable that action may seem to
be, an utter impossibility? May it
not be thon, the part of wisdom
to avoid discussion or even. :sugi
gestion.of a proposal which, how
ever praiseworthy it may be.
could hardly serve any purpose
other than to feed enemies and
distress friends of both Great
Britain and France, who live in
Ambassador Harvey in dealing
with world economics, said the
aftermath of the war was hardly
less disconcerting and devastating
than was the war.
Test Yearn Progress .
"At the expiration of the en
suing week," he, continued, "we
shall have reached -the beginning
ot the fourth year following the
armistice. Even then we shall
only be approaching what we hop
may prove to be the first definite
and enduring settlements lopking
toward the lifting of burdens and
the establishment of international
agreements or understandings
loresnadowing prosperity, which
can be attained only through the
assurance of tranquil relations
among the powers."
There was. he added, political
peace in a broad Bense and it was
industrial peace now that was be
ing sought and which 'mUst be ob-'
Economic Laws Superior
"We must face the issue spuare
ly and manfully," he said, "as it
befits our race. The first funda
mental principle that we must rec
ognize is , that economic laws are
f superior to legislative enact
ments." ;,
He declared supply and riemand
constitute the-basic law of all ih-
custry. and that a period of what
normally would i be termed over
production, should now follow the
long period of under production.
Instead, however. , he declared
both England and America had
been persistent in under producr
tidn. i

Didn't Know it Was Loaded
Type of Drivers Warned
To Slow Up
Traffic violators who tear, into
the city traffic ordinances and
then expect a please-don't-do-it-again
attitude from City Recorder
Earl Race will receive an un
pleasant jar on their next un
willing visit to the city hall. Af
ter a long period of accepting
promises that were son forgotten
or broken. Judge Race has issued
the following statement:
"In future for the violating of
the traffic ordinance in the city ;
of Salem, speeding, glaring head-,
lights and cutting corners, the
minimum fine imposed by this
court will e b$20.
"In looking over the number
of accidents that have happened,
and the lives that have been sac
rificed, we have become satisfied
that an automobile in the hands
of a careless or reckless driver is
a . deadly weapon placed in the
same class with the people that
didn't know the gun was loaded.
If an automobile wiis not consid
ered dangerous when on the road
it would not be surrounded by
the laws to protect both life and
property. " .
Ben Kantolberg and Carl Booth
were each arrested during the
week and after pleading guilty to
charges of exceeding the speed
limits within city bounds received
proof, that Judge Jt ace is indeed in
earnest. Each was fined $20.
Short Circuit Causes
Loss of Near $1,000,000

circuit, burned 150,0000 bags of
sugar in the shipping warehouse

Cloudy- and threatening, proba

moderate southerly winds.
The sales tax was rejected to
night by the senate.
The Democrats voted solid
ly against the measure and
were joined by 17 Republi
cans. The vote, as against, to 25
for, was on a proposal by Sen
ator Smoot, Republican, Utah,
for a 1 per cent levy with ex
emptions provided in the case
of sales by farmers of the
products of their farms, sales
by public utilities and those
by the United States or any
foreign government or any
state or territory, the army
and navy and hospitals.
The roll call for the amend
ment showed 25, including Re
publicans Gooding of Idaho
and Jones and Poindexier of
Washington. ; Against the
measure was 43, including
Borah, Republican, Idaho and
Walsh, Democrat, Montana.
The vote was regarded gener
ally as decisive of the question of
a sales tax at present, but imme
diately after it had b?en an
nounced. Senator Smoot offered
another amendment embodying a
business sales tax of one half of
1 per cent on gross sales in exces3
of $6000 a year.
This went over until tomorrow.
In the debate on the defeated
manufacturers' sales tax plan.
some Republican leaders indicated
a sales tax might have to be pro
vided for in connection with the
soldiers' bonus bill which they
predicted would be passed at the
next session.
Discussion of the sales tax was
comparatively brief. Senator
Smoot was the chief speaker for
the plan, which was opposed
among others by Senator Jones of
New Mexico, Democrat.
Before taking lip the sales tax,
the senate, perfected the commit
tee bill with the adoption of some
additional amendments offered by
individual senators.
The Sale Will Be Through
out the Country for En
dowing Hospital Ward
The towns of ; Marion county
are giving splendid co-operation
in the tag day to be held tomorrow
nnder the auspices of the Ameri
can War Mothers, to raise funds
for the four-bed ' ward to be en
dowed in the new Salem hospital
for ex-service men.
Twelve of the town of Marion
county have responded to the call,
and the activities of tag day will
be under the auspices of tho fol
lowing ladies in those towns:
Aurora Miss Emma Snyder.
Aumsville Mrs. Edgar T.
Brooks Mrs. Howard Ramp.
Donald Mrs. Harry Evans.
Gervais, Mrs. 0. J. Mpisan.
Hubbard Mrs. Alice Grim

Silverton, Mrs! Clarence Kecne.
Stayton Mrs. Lulu R. Lilly.
Turner Mrs. Dr. Gragg.
Waconda Mrs. John Savage.
Woodburn Mrs. C. W. Gil
lette. ;
As the beds to be endowed are
to be for the benefit of all Marion
county ex-service men, it is en
tirely appropriate that all the peo
ple of the county should assist in
the most praiseworthy enter
prise. The tags are to be sold for 10
cents each; but; already Beveral
public spirited citizens of Sarem
have bought tags at higher prices,
and no doubt, this same spirit of
liberality will be shown through
out tthe countty, with the hope of
giving the, fund for the most
worthy purpose the final success
that it must be made.

Capital Crimes So Numerous
Special Fund May Be Neces
sary Prom Legislature
Warden L. H. Compton of the
state penitentiary will probably
ask Governor Olcott to recom
mend to the state legislature at
the next session a separate appio
praition for the, maintenance ot
men in the prison . who are un
der sentence of death.
The condemned men are not
maintained on the regular prison
accounts in the same way as other
prisoners, though they are fed
and cared for at prison expense.
With five men in the prison now
awaiting execution, and with the
executions of some of them de
layed many months by appeals to
the supreme court, they are quite
expensive to the state. At a meet
ing of the state board of control
yesterday Warden Compton said
that if the unusually large num
ber of condemned men becomes
a regular condition he will prob-
obly request the governor to ask
the next legislature for a separate
appropriation for their mainte
nance. E TO
Plans for Large Develop

storage of approximately 6000
acre feet, and to, appropriate 35
second feet of water through a
tunnel and pipe line five miles in
length, dropping the same into
Panther creek under a head of
1460 feet, for the -development of
!07 horsepower, have been filed
in the office of the state engi
neer Percy A. Cupper, by the city
of McMinnville.
This development contemplates
the construction of a 50-foot earth
fill dam on the headwaters ot
Nestucca river, a tunnel about
one-half mile in length, about five
miles of 48-inch pipe line and
a power house at an estimated
cost of $350,000. : The power is
to be used for municipol purpo

the floor, as provided by the Cherrian by-laws and consti

the annual January meeting. I

candidates for the big job, that
