over the top of two-rear heat

day renewing Germany's notes,
Mrs. Kennedy alternately sick
ened, amused and disgusted the
public, and Mr. Meier about him
this story is concerned.
Newsmen are learning 'that the
slx-months-In-otflice gorernor has
not staked weekly Friday surprise
sales theso-many years without
discovering that the people like to
see things doing. So it's a poor
week when something lively is not
popping ; at the statehouse: the
governor enjoys it; the press eats
it up and the same lively tempo
jwblch characterizes Portland's
own store prevails where the new
governor, Mr. Hansen, Miss Wal
ton and the other political apothe
caries mix the weekly medicines.
Two Bla Iwe
Are Stirred Up - -'
This week the public's eye was
directed to two big topics. The
first and probably most interest
ing one throughout the state was
the special session: as related to
the problem of tax reduction. The
second, was the buy-in-Oregon con
ference. " i
There Is no doubt that the gov- J
ernor really wanted the special
session. It would enliven a dull
summer. It would give hlnv chance
once again to dictate to 90 sub
servient legislators.' It a
dramatic way to illustrate to the
public that a business man in of
fice can move aa much more rap
idly than an average politician" aa
a cyclone exceeds a summer
xephyr. Until the last few days, it
appeared the governor was going
to have-hls session. Now It is very
doubtful, although. Mr. Meier has
said he would take nearly two
more weeks .to decide, sending
each legislato'r In the meanwhile
a letter to find out his atUtude
on the session, f ' - "
; Few of the legislators want the
Mulnn. Tn Multnomah county
only two of the 21 in the delega-1
thm evinced mncn-interest, rune
of these was ButcheT Bennett
and his Interest scaredMeier be
cause, the governor foresaw that
there would be other questions
than tax - reduction- introduced.
Bennett would want state cur
rency or three and one-half per
cent money for home , owners.
Bennett would not be alfhe. Ben
T. Osborne, state labor leader, in
timated he would be under the big
dome using labor's always potent
strings to hook a liberal unem
ployment relief appropriation Into
the agenda Of the special meeting.
Editors of Single
Mind In Opposing "
Not a single newspaper In the
state warmed to the special session.-
Even the Portland dallies,
which ordinarily .jell the back
page to Meter's store and donate
liberal support in the editorial
column, turned tall and cried halt
at the mention of the special ses
sion. The Oregon Journal, which

Governor Ever

In a public statement that Husy

was the worst governor Louis

on last March 4 and forfeited his
right to -serve as governor. 1 He
also charged that Governor Long
was not content to be governor,

Failure of Chiang to Make

On Bandits Cause
' SHANGHAI, 'July 25 (AP)
With complete control in only
three of the score of provinces
la China, the nationalist govern
ment at Nanking -was-confronted
today with', one of .the most ser
ious of the several rebellions that
have plagned - its four, years of
turbulent existence. '..-.z
- ', Commissioned by the Canton
Insurgent government which has
ruled Kwangtung and Kwangsl
provinces since late April. General
Shlh Yu-San,. northern war lord,
has begun hostilities sgalnst the
Manehurlan allies of the nation
alist government. ....
' Thus the nationalist govern
ment, with power centered on the
Taagtse river of middle China,
has been placed between two rev
olutionary forces. Even in this
central area, the government
finds Itself menaced by organized
armies of Reds and bandits, rav
aging, towns and countryside.
For two months President Chl
any Kai-Shek devoted hts atten
tion "to military acUvlty against
outlawry la ' devastated Kiangsi
Province, taking up headquarters
at Nanchang. Its capital, to com
mand the 200,000 soldiers he as
serted were being thrown against
the brigands.
But little has been accomplish
ed In this campaign, and Chung's
enemies at Canton have taunted
him with charges of little intent
to suppress banditry, while se
cretly preparing to launch an of
fensive against Canton Insurg
ency. With dissension stilled within
their ranks and Independent mili
tary southern leaders pledging al
legiance, the Cantonese have an
nounced their intention of taking
the offensive agaist Nanking to
end the asserted dictatorship of
Chiang and his purpose of found
ing a "dynasty." They demand
increased share of government
and propose to establish strong
rule -instead of the weak and in
effective regime they charge is
unable to curb lawlessness.
"I haven't changed my mind a
bit.- Mayor P. M. Gregory declar
ed last night when asked what he
would do with the exclusive fran
chise for handling garbage, which
was last -Monday voted by the
council to the Sanitary Service
company of this city. Oregory
said he would veto the ordinance
and place it in the city recorder's
hands before his 10 days time was
up. which is next Thursday.
A two-thirds vote of the coun
cilman will be necessary to over
ride the mayoral rete.
The exclusive feature of the
measure is objectionable to him,
the mayor stated at the council
meeting Monday. In the ordin
ance, rates for gagbage disposal
are set which the company Is not
allowed to exceed, and responsi
bility for the care and operation
of the city incinerator is to be as
sumed by the service company,
without cost to the city.

Assistant Postmaster Says
Job Well Done, Local
Men to be Hired
' Complaint by Salem paint firms
that the contractor for reflnishlng
the interior of the postofflce
building was not being mads - to
follow the original specifications
which were given to bidders, and
that local workmen were not be
ing employed where possible, was
quashed yesterday by Arthur Gib
bard, assistant pCstmaster. He re
ported that specifications are be
ing followed In a manner satis
factory to postal offllcals, and
that at least eight Salem laborers
will be employed beginning Mon
day. ., '
The questioning of the Danville,
la., contractor's work apparently
grew out of the wide variation be
tween his bid and that of the
three Salem firms which sought
the job. The difference between
the lowest local bid and that of
the midwest firm was about
$2000. Local painters have declar
ed the building could 'not be re
finished according to . specifica
tions for the sum of the Iowa
man's bid.
It is reported that when . the
work of removing the ' varnish
from the woodwork in the building
was begun over a week ago. a
postal inspector found the " old
finish was not being removed as
called for In specifications, but
was only being dulled. According
to the word of the proprietor of
a local paint firm, the inspector
ordered C. R. Phleger, superin
tendent for the contractor, to re
move the varnish entirely.
C. D. Inman. the contractor. Is
expected tb arrive in the city this
week to confer with his superin
tendent. PAPER HOUSE
