Salem's Street Light
ing In the Business
District at Night.
NTEREST in street lighting
in Salem, inspired at least in
part by the plans 'for bril
liantly lighting High street,
have caused much comment
from time to time on lighting
conditions of other streets. In
an effort to get some of this
comment Into concrete form the
New Statesman reporters bava
questioned a number of per
sons, with the following results:
Willamette university, said: "I
have noticed lately that the up
per cluster lights are being il
luminated and this has done
much to correct the dark condi
tion of-down town streets that
did exist Really, I haven't tak
en special notice of lighting
South Liberty street said: "I
think that the new street lights
which have been placed on ev
ery corner In my section of town
are wonderful. They lighten
things up tremendously. The
corner, just north of us was
frightfully dark before thVy
placed the street light on It, and
now you -can tell that there is
really something there instead
of Just a black hole. These new
street lights are one thing whleh
we have needed for many, many
years. As "for Improvements in'
the street lighting system ...
why, we haven't got over the
shock of having these new lights
yet-" . : .
State Industrial Accident com
mission, said: "This is rather
short notice, so my comments
will have to be a snap judgment.
I think the street lights have
been improved greatly just re
cently, the company putting out
more lights and putting them
closer together. But some of the
outlying districts are still in
need of more light on the sub
ject. Of course, It is the ques
tion of expense which keeps
them in the dark, but then the
comfort of the tax-payer should
also be considered."
HOMER H. SMITH, of the In
surance agency bearing his
name, said: "It is hard to talk
on a question like that with no
forewarning. .Any number . of
similar things could be improv
ed upon. A little competition
would be of more service than
anything else." -

Setting a new high record for
sales volume at 5,670,600 shares,
the New York stock exchange to
day witnessed the wildest orgy of
speculation In Its long and color,
ful hiitory.' Price movements
lacked the uniformity of some re
cent sessions but the general

Trading facilities of the ex
treme were literally swamped by
the ,- swollen streams of orders
which, poured Into the floor, hot
only from practically every large
town and city in the country but
from Europe and .capitals, finan

IV minutes of trading. The ticket

after the market closed.
Clerks and Brokers
Drop Ia Exhaustion
Many brokers j and telephone
clerks on the floor were In a state
of exhaustion when the closing
gong sounded, some of them un
able to speak above a whisper
because of their strenuous efforts
to make themselves heard and ex
ecute their orders in the pende-
monlum of noise on the floor. In
the larger brokerage houses, a
small army of clerks tolled over
the books, eating! their luncheons
at their desks and prepared to
work far into the night tobrlng
their records up to date before the
beginning of another day. ' Hotel
rooms wore engaged for scores of
employes living in thnaburbs. '

NEW YORK,-Nov. '!!--(( A.P.J
f Another aspect of Arnold Roth-
stein's many : activities - came to
light today. I. Gainsburg, counsel
for the slain gambler's blood rel
atives who are to contest the will,
said he had been informed that
about $2,000,000 of Rothsteln's
money had been posted to guar
antee the ball bonds of ''Master
Mind" criminals.
This disclosure; aside from cast
ing light from another angle on
the underworld connection! of the
dead man, may further snarl the
gambler's financial affairs which
the executives of the will must
untangle. j
. Gainsburg made his statement
after he had called at the office of
District Attorney Banon with Mrs.
Esther Rothsteln, mother j of the
adventurer in big stakes and un
conventional high finance. Roth
steln cut off his parents without
a cent, leaving a considerable por

while In the Park Central Hotel
a week ago. : ; .; . ;
Gainsburg, who had requested
Ban ton to subdoena the three ex

regarding that document, i said it
was in the public interest; that a
full Inquiry be made concerning
the testament.
An outstanding move by the dis
trict attorney; in the case today
was his order; that a 24-hour po
lice guard be placed in Rothsteln's
office to forestall any attempt to
