v I New Charter

Oeorge-iThompson." is the prind-
pal business slated for tonight's
city i council meeting,
it Rumors were current Monday
J that this election on the part of
the-council may have a possible
1 bearing ; on the fate of the pro-
posal to put the council-manager
f charter on the ballot this year.
Candidates mentioned so far in
; elude Kenneth L. Randall, attor
i ney who is prominent in the activ
es Mies of the Hollywood community
3 organization, and C. E. Albin, for
mer Salem mayor.
Mr. Albin was a member of the
committee appointed by Mayor
Livesley to draft the proposed
charter, and Is presumably in ac-
4Ctrd with the other members of
that group who favor submitting it
t to a popular vote-in November.
r Mr. Randall's attitude on the
1 question has not been made public
I but the, report Monday was that
Mr. Albin was the candidate of
the council members who want the
new charter submitted in its pres
ent form, and that the council
would divide on that issue in elect
ing a member from the fifth ward
It Is hot believed that the pro
posed charter wU be brought up
for the council's consideration to
night, but if the forecasts are
authentic, the fate of the chartrl.
so far as this method of getting it
before the voters is concerned,
will be fairly indicated by the vote
on filling the vacancy.
The matter of mileage for the
city bridge engineer and his as
sistant in driving their automo
biles between their office and the
various bridge jobs, may possibly
be taken from the table and de
cided at tonight's meeting. It was
tabled two weeks ago when some
of the councilmen objected to the
rate of mileage asked.

Senator f Smith W. Brookhart. of
Iowa, stated today at a Cook coun-
ty republican rally at Riverview
I Park that the American laboring
I man is interested in the presi
I dential; campaign because of the
issues of im 'nitration, the tariff
I and the! iis. of injunctions in la
ir bar disputts.
"Immigration," he said, "is an
issue in this campaign only be
I cause of Governor Smith's attack
upon the law as it now exists. The
republican party accepts full re-
tponstbility for its present law re
.i utricting cheap labor from the
i American labor market. -The re
1 etrictive measures in the immigra-
tion law form what amounts to a
: tariff on the price of labor and is
- a definite compliment to the pro
I tectlve tariff for "which the repub
I lican party has always stood."
Senator Brookhart said the
$ anology between protective tariff
and restricted immigration is
clear, the protective tariff offer
ing protection from the product
of cheap labor abroad with the re
& etricted immigration law protect
ing the American laboring man
from the product of cheap labor at

ROCKFORD. 111., Sept. 3
(AP) The rescue of Bert Hassell
and Parker Cramer. Rock ford to
Stockholm - aviators, from the
arctic wastes of western Green
land continued to be the chief
topic of interest here tonight and
added zest to what perhaps would
have been just an ordinary Labor
Day celebration.
While awaiting full details of
what had happened since the co
pilots of the plane Greater Rock
ford disappeared two weeks ago,
the fact that they were safe and
unharmed was sufficient to arouse
Rockford to the greatest pitch ofL
excitement the city had seen since
the armisitce ended the world war.
Details Awaited u
Virtually the whole community
was waiting anxiously for fall par
ticulars of the rescue and the ac-
count of what had taken place
since the morning of August 19
when the two fliers were laatf
f heard from as they soared over
northeasern Canada on the second
leg of their proposed flight from
Rockford to Stockholm, Sweden.

sens had given up hope for the

Eddie Peabody Assists In
Effecting An Armistice
Between Disputants
Despite the fact that Salem's
amusement houses for a time
Sunday faced a possible strike by
stage hands, an actual break, was
averted and an armistice declared
under which business will pro
ceed as usual pending final ad
justment of differences. A repre

body has been called to Salem to
aid in straightening out the situ
ation Information from employ
ers and union officials Monday
night was that no move would be
made until this representative has
arrived. This, it was intimated,!
might not be for several days.
While it generally was nn
that contracts between the Salem
theatres and the union expired
September 1, there was no inti
mation that a strike wae impend
ing until Sunday morning, when
union stage hands at the Elsinore
refused to handle the Fanchon
Marco show.
Demands Turned Down.
Prior to that time a committee
had waited upon Manager George
Guthrie, of the Elsinore ana ure
gon and Frank Bligh, proprietor
of the Capitol, and asked for a
decision on a proposed contract
embodying demands wnicn me
union men were iniormea couia

cluded n six day week instead oi
one of seven days, together with
other flat increases and time al
lowances and salary advances con
sidered exorbitant by the employ
ers. The committee informed Messrs.
Rlleh and Guthrie that it had no
authority to negotiate but merely
was empowered to present me un
ion's demands and report ' back.
They were .toformedlthst the de
mands would not be met as they
were considered unreasonable.
It was with some surprise, then.
according to Mr. Guthrie, that he
learned of- the -refusal" lot union

Peabody Aids Adjustment
For a time there appeared a
strong possibility that there would
be no show. A hurried confer

reached under which the union
men work on the new scale cover
ed in their demands, this condi

patching up the peace between the

helped to avert a serious break
and possible discontinuance of his
performances at the Elsinore by
his timely counsel.
"It is too early yet to predict
what would happen in the event
the union eticks to its demands,"
sad Mr. Guthrie Monday night
"It would be a pity to curtail
Salem's amusements and I hope
it will not prove necessary."
"As matters stand just now,
we have agreed magnanimously,
I believe to meet the demands
of theanion temporarily rather
than see Salem deprived of high

What They
Think Of

Occupied by the

, VERY now and then some
one bobs up with the sug.
grotion that the Marion coun

for business property and tliat
another Kite be selected for tlie

apt to be beated when this

eryone in Balem baa decided
Ideas on this matter. Tlie Now
Statesman felt Justified In put
ting the question before a num
ber of persons with the re
quest that they speak right
out and give their views. Here
is what some of them said:
manager of the Rosebraugh
iron works, said: "The Marion
county courthouse is a distinc
tive building, not equaled in its
architecture by any other struc
ture in the west. Architects
come great distances to see it.
From a strictly business stand
point, perhaps, it would be
well to turn over that property
to business use, but on account
of its value as a part of the
civic center and its associations,
it would be unwise."
HAL D. PATTON. bookstore
proprietor, said: "Never! The
people will never permit the re
moval of that beautiful build
ing and the ruining of Salem's
civic center; and as for allow
ing room for business to ex
pand,. Salem has enough busi-
ness bouses for the present."
the Ira Jorgensen Supply com
pany, said: "I would be . very
Borry to see the Court house
block offered for sale as a busi
ness property, because it is
very beautiful as it is."
judge of Marion county, said: -"I
am not in favor of selling
any part or all of it for a busi
ness block. Of course the peo
ple would have the say about
head of the history department
at Willamette University said:
"The courthouse block should
not be sold for business prop
erty under any consideration.
Such a utilitarian move Is un
necessary at this time. The
block is a vital part of our civ
ic center known and appre
ciated not only locally but
throughout the state."
R. L. STAPLES, night oper
ator at the Postal Telegraph
office, said: "The last thing
they should do is sell the court
house block to private Interests
as that will delay in getting
new buildings on the property."
M. W. SAWYER, 1272 State
street, salesman for the Stan
dard Oil company, said: "The
county ought to build a large
building to cover the whole
block, the two lower floors to
be rented to business interests,
the top floor to be used by the
county and the intervening
floor space to be rented to the
state. The rents taken in would
support the building and would
pay the debt of its construction.
The county would have central
ly located offices, the ; state
would have downtown offices
and 'the town would have an.
other attractive boll ding."

Typhoid fever may occur at any
time during the year, but it is
most prevalent in the United
States in the late summer, and
during the autumn months, warns
the public health service. Ty
phoid germs are taken into the
body through the mouth with the
food or drink, or by means of di
rect infection with flies.
Well cooked foods or properly
pasteu.d or boiled milk or milk
product? are safest from the dan
ger cf conveying typhoid germs.
"Carriers," although not sick
themselves, harbor and discharge
the germs of a particular disease
and cooking is no protection from
carriers. The part played by the
fly in the carrying of typhoid
germs should always be kept in
Germs Hard To Kill
-germs may - live for
some" time outside the body and
in the milk which is allowed to
stand for some time in moderate
or summer temperature. They
will increase in large numbers
within a few hours, as milk is an
ideal food for their growth. -Flies
may carry these germs on , their
feet if they have had the oppor
tunity of getting them.
The necessity of innoculation
against typhoid fever should be
emphasized at this time of year.
It is especially necessary that the
innoculation be done before the
vacation period begins. For dan

cities and in foreign countries.
