Salem street railway fares were trie sdbject of a hearing
yesterday before the public service commission, on application
of the Southern Pacific company to increase the fares' in
Salem from 6 to 7 cents. ,; . t , ?
T. L. illingsley, superintendent ofithe street railway lines,
declared, however, that the increase would in reality be only
a quarter; pf a cent inasmuch as four-ride books would be sold
for 25 cents. ; ,
In reply to a question from W. P. Ellis, attorney for the
public service commission, whether the increase in 1922 from
5 to 6 ents had not actually caused a decrease in patronage
and, a decrease in revenue, Mr. Billingsley replied that while
there had been such decreases, he attributed it to a far greater
number of automobiles now than at that time. p
Billingsley said that in event the increase is allowed trans
fers will: continue to be issued from the Southern Pacific
steam line between Salem and Geer and from the bus lines
that took j over the Southern Pacific traffic between Salem
and west; side points. - . , . ... J-

Chairman of Democratic Na
tional Committee Claims
a Genuine "Victory"
WASHINGTON, Sept. 9. The
Maine election :was described in a
statement issued- tonight .by Clem
L. Shaver, chairman iof the demo
cratic national;, Committee as bet
ing a "victoryl'l from the demo
cratic standpoin. j
"The democratic nominee for
governor." he said, "was defeated
by 30,000 votes, less than in 1920,
the last presidential year and this
in the face of the fact that the
vote in Maine j this year was ap
proximately 4000 larger than in
that year. ' In f other words the
gains hare been tremendous and
the loss to the -republicans 50 per
cent i in the matter i of plurality.
The republican1 inomlnee for gov
ernor won by 65,000 in 1920. This
year he won by about half that. A
change in the two parties' votes
of anything like similar percent
ages ; in the country would mean
a clean democratic sweep."

CHICAGO, Sept. 9.- The exec

of the republic, comprising veter
ans of the civil, Spanish and world
wars! and other military expedi

National Lumber Manufacturers'
association today estimated forest
fire loss this season in California
Oregon, Washington, Montana and
Idaho at $4,250,000. Of this $3,
000, 000 represented Joss to stand
ing timber In the national forests
and parks; $300,000 damage to
privately owned standing timber,
and an equal sum to logs and
logging equipment, while $250,000
was in losses (o settlers and mi
scellaneous community property.
Incendiary fires, forest visitors,
lightning, and; industrial opera
tion in clearing land were given
as the chief causes of the forest
fires with very few ''attributable
to logging 'operations."
Saying "recreation in wood
lands"-costs the government and
timber owners sums . ranging
rfrom several $ million dollars la
a fortunate year to as much as
$25,000,000" the
statement suggested
that "perhaps

Here Last October
Setting an example to all debt
ors, H. P. Gabel, of Route 2,
Puerta, Cal., has forwarded to the
city a money order for 50 cents
which he said has been due since
last October. The letter was ad
dressed to the city of Salem and
in the course of business routine,
Marten Poulsen, city recorder, fell
heir to the epistle, . ; "The letter,
dated August 26, is as follows;
"Last October my wife and I
spent a night at the Salem muni
cipal auto park. We left In the
morning and were unable to find
the man in charge and were unab
ble to pay the usual charge. I
intended. to send the money from
Spokane, but forgot the matter."
"Recently we wece checking
over expense memoranda for, our
trip and were reminded of the
matter. -.. Enclosed is a money or

Mr. Gabel made the request of
the amount he sent was insuffi

New . Orleans, Commanded
by Lieutenant Nelson,
v Strips Timing Gears .
WASHINGTON Sept. 9-1-Wear-ied
by an all day buck against
bead winds and fog delays. Lieu
tenant Lowell H. Smith, com
manding the armyworld flight,
brought his air cruiser Chicago
to a safe landing at Boiling field
here today to receive a cordial
greeting from President Coolidge
and members of the cabinet. Bos
ton II, substitute for the Boston,
wrecked off Iceland, came in also
with Lieutenant- Wade piloting,
but the New Orleans went , down
within 30 miles ;. of Washington,
Just,this side of Baltimore, with
stripped timing geifcrs, and her
pilot, Lieutenant ;:Nelson, came on
as a passenger in an escort plane.
A" forced landing for the whole
squadron of world cruisers and
escort marred the flight from New
York. The" filers, with Major
General Patrick,-chief of the air
service; leading the ; escorting
squadron, ran into the fog just
after they crossed the Susque
hanna river, and; at Aberdeen, the
army proving ground In Mary
land, were signalled down to refill
fuel tanks', emptied ' in the long
grind against a steady south wind
that ranged from 35 to 45 miles
an hoar. ' - i '' T v ' ' : '.
It was this that started the de
lays which kept President and
Mrs. Coolidge and members bf
the cabinet and their wives wait
ing four hours for more in the
rain at Boiling field. Under better-
conditions the planes would
have landed before noon but
against the wind that cut them
down to a. 50 mile ground speed
or less and with the stop for an
hour or so at Aberdeen they did
not. put in an -appearance until
nearly 3 p. m. i
- When Lieutenants Smith and
Wade arrived, air service officers
believed that all : three cruise -s
were on the .ground. The two
that did come In were wheeled
Quickly to taxi back to a place in
line before the' reviewing stand
where the president awaited them.
A space was kept clear for the
third but when it remained vacant
there were eager inquiries for the
missing ship. ' -
"Where's the New Orleans?"
was cried at air! service quarters
and they charged into the reserv
ed enclosure" top find out v from
General Patrick or Lieutenant
Smith. "Oh, she's back near Bal
timore," Smith said, and that was
the first word of the accident to
reach the public.
Lieutenant Nelson landed from
the escore plane which carried
him through soon . as his com
panions brought their ships to
earth. H ;

Both Fighters Declare Them
selves Fit for Battle 1
Tomorrow Night
NEW YORK, Sept. 8. (By the
Associated Press.) Luis Angel
Firpo and Harry Wills, rival, as
pirants for Jack Dempsey'a- crown,
have completed their training and
today they declared themselves fit
for" their battle scheduled for
Thursday night in Boyle's Thirty
Acres, Jersey City.
Firpo, because of his devastat
ing right hand punch, loomed to
night as a slight favorite with sev
eral wagers being reported on him
at odds of 6 to 6, but critics who
haver; followed the giant gladiators
in their preparations the past few
weeks look" for a closely fought
battle. - .. :
- There t seems to be general
agreement that the fight "will not
go the limit of 12 rounds, but on
the other! hand, a fairly even de
cision, of .opinion as to whether
the expected knockout will be
scored, by the Wild Bull ! or - the
Brown Panther as no! decisions are
permitted under the New Jersey
boxing' laws, the verdict,' in case
the match goes the limit; will be

will be held Friday night.

encounter of the year, in spite of
the fact that no title is involved;
are In excellent condition. With
their long conditioning grinds
completed, both men tipped the
scales at around 220-and expect

Opposition Stubborn
The argument on the ordinance
was not acrimonious, though it
was stubbornly fought by Alder
men Galloway and Patton and by
L.J H. Suter, a farmer councilman,
and J. J. Nunn.
At the outset Galloway suggest
ed that the courtesy, of the floor
bo extended Ho any from the pro
testing Englewood district who
wished to be heard. Mayor Gie?y
declared, however, that inasmuch
as the question was on the passage
of an ordinance the discussion
should be limited to council mem
bers, especially since a special
meeting had been held previously
to hear the residents of the dis
trict. After Alderman Rosebrausli
had made the opening argument
for the bill, however. J. J. Nunn
rather heatedly challenged the
mayor's ruling. The mayor re
plied that 4f the residents were to
be heard it must be by vote of tho
council. The council extended the
privilege. ?
- Rosebraugh Opens Debate
'. Rosebraugh, who! made the op
ening argument for the measure,
was chairman of the ordinance
committee which reported favor
ably on the bill, the other mem
bers being SImeral and Purvine.
; "I hoped and expected at tha
special meeting ' last Thursday
night," said Mr. Rosebraugh, "to
hear some argument that would
Justify the committee ;ln return
ing a report that would be as the
Englewood people wanted it. But
I didn't hear a single argument
of that kind." i : j
Rosebraugh declared that sta
tistics the world over show that
street railway lines are obsolete
and are losing enterprises in all
cities under 500,000 population.
The argument of the Englewood
Protestants, he said, that removal
of the lines would decrease the
