(Specfal to The Statesman.) The
Ford sedan belonging to O. A.
Ruple was entirely destroyed by
fire Tuesday night as Mr. Ruple
was on his way home. He had got
about four miles east of Silverton
when the car stopped. Mr. Ruple
lit a match to see what time it
was, and threw the match back of

tried to 'shove the car out of the
way but the fire followed the gas
oline trail and destroyed the car.
The car was covered by insurance.

Courts to Decide Tenure
Of Mr. Myers in Office

that he will leave it to the courts
to decide whether Jefferson Myers,
whom the governor appointed tate
treasurer to succeed O. P. Hoff,
shall serve only through the pres
ent year or through the entire un
expired term of Mr. Hoff.
The governor deliberately made
the appointment until 1927, he
said, although the constitution of

death, resignation or other ina

SUFETY TALK BY
Motorists Urged to Be Care

Possibility of a gutter fire that
would seriously damage all auto
mobiles parked in one Salem block
'Is seen by R. O. Snelling, manager
of the Associated Oil company,
who urged motorists to take great
er precautions when handling gas
oline, in a short talk at the Rotary
clab luncheon Wednesday. He
pointed out that it is a common
habit of motorists to fill their
gasoline tanks too full, leaving a
tiny stream running to the pave
ment. Some time a careless smok
er will drop a lighted match or
cigar butt with dangerous results,
he said. w
"Now that the camping, picnic
and fishing season is near, motor
ists should take more care with
their gasoline, for in spite of the
popular belief of many people that
the quality of gasoline has deter
iorated, it is still highly inflam
able," Mr. Snelling said. "The
common gasoline stoves used by
campers are dangerous unless pro
per precautions are taken. Many
campers are also very careless
about building camp fires close to
the rear of their automobiles.
Even when handling gasoline out

Mr. Snelling said his remarks
were caused by the recent tragedy
at Albany which resulted in the
death of Dr. Arthur Leininger. Mr.
Snelling said he has investigated
the accident and believed it to
have been caused by a leak in the
container. Dr. Leininger used a
two-gallon tank and blow torch.
After using this for soldering, the

flames, which were sucked back
into the tank, causing the explos

accidents that have occurred re
cently through carelessness. In
one instance a huge tank was be
ing reopened, and though it had
not been used to contain gasoline
for nearly two years, sufficient
fumes and gases remained to cause
a serious explosion.
