In this district.
The claim of preference made
by the Western Dry Goods com
pany as u creditor of Max and
Esther Solof of the former Peo
ple's Cash store, was denied, by
A. M. Cannon, referee in bank
ruptcy. The claim of the Western
Dry Goods company was denied by
Mr. Cannon until such time as the
company returns to the referee
moneys which belong to the com
pany. Referring further to tlje West
ern Dry Goods company, the ref
eree says: "It is quite within the
limits to go so far as to say it posi
tively knew of the insolvency and
certainly it would be ridiculous to
hold it did not have reasonable
cause to believe, which is quite a
different thing from actually be
lieving or knowing, when it is ful
ly proven it had such insfght into
its debtor's affairs as would have
enabled it to make that full, can
did and square- examination the
law demands at its hands and that
this would have undeniably li
vulgecl a case of hopeless insolven
cy." The referee in bankmptcy made
objection to the claim of the West
ern Dry Goods company by the
trustee in bankruptcy, giving as
his reason that the company re
ceived avoidable preference am
ounting to about $19,000. Ac
cording to the referee there was
evidence showing ' that between
February 6 and June 3, 1923,
payments were made to the West
ern Dry Goods company on indebt
edness past due cash in the sum
of $23,799.03 ad merchandise
amounting to $3,00S.08. From
these it was said there should be
deducted $7,089.68, leaving $19,
417.43 as net payments.
It is stated by the referee that
on the bankruptcy date an inven
tory of merchandise at cost of
$47,005.02 is shown, this being
appraised at $23,502.21. The in
ventory of fixtures was $4,890.75
and other property $1173.15, the
aggregate being $53,159.32. Lia
bilities were listed at $130,000 or
more. The amount brought by
the sale of all assets was about
$33,000. General and preferred
dividends have been paid on
claims totaling more than $100.

A plan to tap the Santiam
ivtr above Stayton for improve
ment of the Salem and the Gard

revealed by a recent inspection
rip of a hydraulic engineer of
he public service commission.
While the commission has no jur-
sdiction over the ditches it is fa-
orably impressed with the pro
posed improvement, as indicated
n the following letter the corn-
mission has written the Oregon
ulp & Taper company:
"On a recent inspection trip to
Stayton, our. hydrauic engineer
learned of a proposed plan to tap
he Santiam river at a point about
one mile upstream from the head
of the inland above Stayton; and.
iccompanied by H. J. Roe, man-
!'gr of the Stayton Light & Pow
er company, and G. Keech, mayor
of Stayton, inspected the location.

r ditch and an old river channel
to divert the water from the river

Sadness has coihe to many per
sons of Salem, aside from the im
mediate family and relatives, in
the death of little Katherine Neer,
8 years old. daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. F. E. Xeer, 78lS Nor;th Church
street, who passed away Sunday
night at t o'clock. She was a
granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs
V. E. Wilson. Eteath came after
an illness of eight weeks.
The little girl became ill with
influenza about Thanksgiving
time. It was believed she had re
covered from this illness, but a
trouble with the ear and head de
veloped. This became worse un
til oh January 25 her condition
became so serious that it was
feared she could not live more
than a few hours. She rallied
however, and physicians and sur
geons who consulted the following
day decided an operation was nee
essary. An operation for relie
from an abscess near the base of
the brain was performed at the
Deaconhess hospital January 2C
The little girlt recovered from
the operation anil seemed to be
progressing favorably until las
Saturday, whon alarming symp
toms appeared. Physicians made
a careful examination, using the
X-ray, and decided that further
surgical treatment would be of no
assistance. About 3 o'clock Sun
