GRAND OPERA IN SALEM
On Monday evening next. Salem is to have for the first
time grand opera, with the Manhattan Opera company of
And with Mme. Tamaki Miura, the world renowned
Japanese soprano in her greatest success, "Madam Butterfly"
And with a half hour of Andreas Pavlev, noted Russian
dancer, and the Pavley Oukrainsky ballet.
Salem's first grand opera performance is to be at the
Elsinore theater, a setting worthy of the largest cities in
this country, or any country;? " -.
Thw announcement ought to be a challenge to the theater
gocrs ?f. AtaUthe Surrounding country
To. every one who has any pride in this city , and this
section.-. .-..v j - -..-- ,-
The Elsinore should be crowded to the limit of its capacity
next Monday, evening.- The producing world, and" the owner
of this distinctrve'play house, should be given to know defin-'
That this is a good 'show town-r-
That our: people appreciate things spiritual, literary,
Let's; accept the challenge, and "fill the Elsinore next
Monday, night to the last seat and the last bit of space that
can accommodate our people, who are in many ways a won
derful people and who deserve to be thought of as wonderful
in the. ways just mentioned.

prices for. prunes - - . . ' " ' " 1 A' '
Prices that will give the growers a chance to "get enough
to make them a profit, and so stabilized a to prevent the
packers and -distributors from suffering losses,, as they have
frequently done in recent years
And giving such an interest in securing stability as: to
make for an effort to consistently find wider markets
So that prunes may be pushed as a fruit suitable for the
dietary; as a food that is good for those who use them.
It is understood, also, that plans are being made for an
attempt to make this movement coast wide.
All this is interesting, v Very interesting to men who have
prune orchards, and to all those dependent in any way upon
their well being.
The reader will likely hear a great deal more of this
subject from now on.
The campaign for sugar beet acreage is going on, ancLwill
go on. Steady progress is being made. There should be a
spectacular finish. Read, in tomorrow's Statesman, a descrip
tion of a beet harvest scene in Nebraska. It will stir the

CIIIXKSR CHRISTIAN GENERAL VICTORIOUS
"SHANGHAI. Dec. 14. A critical situation prevails today in
Honaa province, according to dispatches from Hankow, due to the
Kuominchun (nationalist army) having defeated the northern troops
under General Liu Chen-hua. The latter's troops were reported' to
have been driven back to within 15 miles of Chengehow, the western
terminus of the Lunghal railroad,
"General Fen Yu-hsiang, commander of the Kuominchun forces,
is believed to be cooperating with the Cantonese troops who have
entered sevral Honan towns,-threby threatening to completely eradi
cate General Wu Pel-fu, northern troops commander, from the pic
ture. Wa Pei-fu's generals are reported to be seceding and refusing
to fight either the Kuominchun or the Cantonese.
"Four brigades from the Feng Tien forces are being rushed to
Cheng-chow in an effort to stem the advance ofHne Kuominchun, as
the capture of that strategic point would five the Kuominchun-Can-tonese
combination eontrol ot entire western Catna.".-
NEW PRUNE MARKETING PROPOSAL
The'Stafeshian ts'able To publish exclusively this morning
the fact that there is, being . put under way in California a
movement for a hew. prune marketing arrangement
A new kind of cooperative. .
The idea, is lor the.prune growers, including the members
of the .cooperatives and those, who are on the outside or the
independents on the one sideb and the packing and distribut
The above is a cablegram, that; came over one of the press
association wires yesterdayVto the Portland Journal. ,
tt "makes good the forecast : bfc The Statesman in this
department of the paper of last Sunday
The prediction that Marshal Feng Yu-hsiang, the great
Chinese Christian general, having returned to his country
and resumed charge of his forces in northwestern China,
would likely join with the efforts of the Kuomintang or
people's party under Chiang Kai-shih, the clever Cantonese
leader, upon whose shoulders have fallen (or been taken) the
, mantle of Sun Yat Sen, the George Washington of China.
The Kuominchun, or people's army, under Marshal Feng,
is made up of Christian soldiers. They open the day with
prayer. They do not loot. They protect the people instead
of killing and robbing them. They are a strange new force
And they have never been defeated, though often fighting
against great odds.
If the cablegram quoted above gives the truth, there is
probably a new day opening for China, when there will be a
united country for the first time in all history; a United
States of China.
That was the dream 'of Sun Yet Sen, who died before

Canton, ia a progressiveman and a great leader in southern
China. "'."'. . . .
The unification and order of China, and its progress as a
peace loving nation, will be realized, if Marshal Feng shall
be accorded a strong voice in the new government, which is
likely to be a thing of early accomplishment. -Marshal
Feng is a great man
And he is considered by our American missionaries as
having one of the truest hearts and one of the keenest mimls
combined in la single personality in all the world's history.
The forecast in the article in The Statesman of last Sun
day was gathered from an American missionary, or rather
two of them, thoroughly conversant witn the Chinese situa
tion, and intimately acquainted with Marshal Feng and his
Christian wife, educated and for some time a teacher in an
American missionary university.

seek out some one who was born

Mrs. Brown was bothered, at intervals, with clinkers.
Taking the time to go into details we found that it was
generally only of a morning or after smothering down
a too-hot fire. She had been using ashes. Now she is
using her furnace dampers and fine coal for that pur
pose. And unless the coal previously .sold her, and which
she is still using, had an unusually low fusing tempera
ture of ;ash she will have no more clinkers.
Mrs. King was unable to' hold a fire. On inquiry we
discovered the coal did not. go out, it burned out. We
held the 'phone while she made a trip to the basement
to ascertain whether the damper in the feed door was
open or closed. It was closed. We instructed her to
open it. Mrs. King's fire will not burn out in the future.
