That sugar will retail for from (5
to it cents on the Salem market when
present stocks have been exhausted,
and dealers are forced to buy from the'
newallottment made by the refiners, is
the opinion of Theodore Roth, of the
Gile Mercantile company, of this city.
Mr. Roth stated that the only way
for people to lower the price of sugar
Isto quit using it, and he laid consid
erable stress upon the importance nf
such a practice. .
Sugar advanced yesterday to the Job
bers from $lg to $20.59. The new
prices will not be in effect, said Mr.
Roth, in Salem 'for some little time
and the local merchants -will not be
obliged to buy high priced sugar for
three, or four weeks, except possibly
some of the smaller stores that have
not been able to buy before the price
went up. Those who niust buy since
the advance will have to charge more
than the average market price or else
lose money on the investment.
Says "Trust", to Blame. i
Mr. Roth expressed extreme disgust
over the action of the sugar trust and
said he would be willing to act as one 1
who refuses to buy until the price Is
forced down by making a surplus. The
best way to break the backbone of the
trust, said Mr. Roth, is for people to
refuse to buy sugar and absolutely quit
consuming it i The people of the Pa
cific northwest could cut down the
price materially within ten days if .they
would undertake such a method as is
outlined by the local dealer.
In the opinion of Mr. Roth the pres
ent price . means ruin to this country.
It is prohibitive and manufacturers
and packers are not going to put up
much ofanything In the way of fruits
at the present price of sugar. Local
packers have agreed, it is said, not to
put up any more than they have or.
ders for. -
If wearing overalls will manifest a
desire to fight the fiigh cost of living,
so will a boycott on the sugar trust,
and it is just as reasonable an under
taking, he says.
Mr. Roth recommends . the use of
rlceand beans as a substitute for pota
toes as beans sell tor less money today
than they have for five years.

by Capacity Crowd
The lecture on "A more Beautiful
Salem," by Howard Evarts Weed,
landscape architect of Portland, at
the library last night was listened to
by an audience that tilled the audl-
torium of the biulding. The talk was
generally conceded .'to-b one of the
.best of Its kind ever. delivered in the
city, Mr. Weed' and the Salem Arts
league which brought him here, re
celving much praise for the effort put
forth to aid in beautifying the capital
. Mr. Weed covered the general prin
ciples of many subjects railway
planting, formal and Informal gar
dens, parks, children's puaygrounds,
modern park cemeteries, driveways,
streets, billboards, beautifying the
grounds surrounding manufacturing
plants and factories, and last but of
greatest Interest to Salem rolk, call
ed attention to our good and bad
points in exterior decorating.
Grouping Plan Pleases
He was pleased with the grouping
of the public buildings here, but la
mented the arrangement of the wind
ing walks leading to some of them. A
slightly curved walk, ne stated, ts a
thing of beauty, but one that writhes.
snake like, upon the ground Is any
thing but beautiful. The shade trees
of the city, for the most part, he con
sidered out of harmony. A survey
should be made, and certain streets
be given up to certain trees. The Nor
way maple, he said, was adaptable
for this purpose generally, but th
English walnut should never be used
as It developed to too great size. He
He showed pictures of homes, tree

for the trees.
He decried the incongruous bill

be confined to the dally newspaper
and magazines Instead of frenziedly
flung In the faces of pedestrian and
He did not know whether or not
the system of planting roses along
the parking was Instituted In Salem
or Portland; at any rate the plan was
deplorable. Roses do not lend them
selves to this purpose successfully,
the foliage Is too far spaced, and the
ugly branches and body showing too
plainly. Roses should be cultivated
very much as a vegetable garden
for their product. If one must haVe
something along the parkings, one
should plant small shrubs, the Japa
nese barberry being suggested.
Says Houses Misplaced i
He pointed out the mistake made
by most home builders, of placing
their house in the very center of their
lot. This gave no room for landscape,
where, wiyi the house set to one side,'
a sense of breadth and space could
be obtained, providing the plotting of
the ground was consistently done. He
urged folk to get away from the un
sightly arrangement of star and cres
cent flower beds scattered over the
lawn, and of the planting of trees In
prim rows. Small shrubs should be
set about the base of the house, form
lng a connecting link with the lawn,
which should Be kept free from shrub
bery and flower beds until it reached
Its extremity. Tall shrubs around the
boundary of a yard, and at their base
perennials of many descriptions were
effective, the taller ones at the back,
lower ones graduating to the fore.
Oftentimes a bit of shrubbery con
cealing a portion of the rear yard
was good, and gave a greater depth
to the vista.
Mr. Weed emphasized the gallardia
as a most satisfactory perennial, also
the peony. Iris, of which there are a
thousand varieties, phlox, gladioli,

Damage Is Heavy
Says Van Trump
Fruit Inspector & H. Van Trump,
who has made a careful Investigation
of many of the walnut groves In Mar
ion county since the cold weather of
last winter which had a damaging ef
fect upon the trees, claims thta practi
cally alt trees In the low lands were
killed, and that there will be compara
tively few nuts grown in the valley this
year seems very evident. In the hills
they have been damaged, but some
few growers will have a light harvest
In the Chas. Heins yard near Scotts
Mills Mr. Van Trump finds conditions
more favorable for a yield than in any
other part of the county. In different
parts of Scotts Mills and the Rosedale
sectoins trees have been only slightly
damaged, and will bear lightly. Mr.
Van Trump claims to be among the
heaviest loosers In walnut trees. In
his own yard at North Howell ho finds
that practically every tree has been
killed. His orchard was grafted from
California black nuts, and at the pro
per time he will regraft to these
stumps and la In hopes of producing a
new grove. Roots of the trees are vig
orous, he says, and will produce fruit
if properly grafted.
Mr Van Trr.inp said that twenty per
cent of the loganberries in the county
were on wires whon the cold came on,
ana inese were frozen, it is a safe es
timate, said the Inspector, that the
county will not harvest more than ten
or twenty per -cent of a crop this sea
son from the frozen, vines. Vines which
.were not trained and were left under
the snow, are in fairly good condition
at the present time and will bear prob
ably as much as usual.
Injured fruit trees, said Mr. Van
Trump, .are not all on the low lands.
"Many trees in the hill lands were also
Damaged and he is of the opinion that
the trees in general throughout the
county will have a doubtful futyre.
But this cannot be determined exactly
until later In the season.
. The prune crop bids fair to bring a
big price this year The pool sold at
Dallas last week for 15 cents Is said to
be the highest price prunes were ever
known to sell for on contract In Ore
gon, Mr. Van Trump believes that too
high prices for fruit will be detrimental
to the rowers.

STRIKERS WARN AGAINST
FURTHER SETTLEMENT DELAY
" Washington, Apr. 24. Warning
against further delay In settling the
wage demands of the two million rail
road workers of the country, Timothy
Shea, vice-president of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Firemen, told the
railroad labor board today that the
men "were fed .up' on promises, and
dead, 'dog-tired of delays."
Mr, Shea preesnted the demands of
the firemen and hostlers for a basic
living wage of $6.50 a day, with differ
entials for Bklll, responsibility, experi
ence and the Increase in the cost ot
living since the demands were first
presented last June.
When he had urged th striking rail
road men In the east to return to work
Shea-said their almost universal just!
ficatlon for striking was that they and
their families were starving at work
and they "might Just as well starve not
Mr. Shea said the railroad workers
had been patient and they had been
Patience "Exhausted.' .
"We were patriotic," he said, "while
the thousands and tens of thousands
ot millionaires were being created. We
have been patient while the profiteers
have paused In their orgy of spending
ill-gotten gains only long enough to
skyrocket prices still higher and make
a mockery of our government's prom
lse that living costs would be reduced.
"Gentlemen, the time has come
when our people say they will no long.
er be patriotic only to be plundered,
nor patient, only to- be pauperized.
They have learned by bitter experience
that their landlords are not 'patriotic'
and their grocers are not 'patient'
They are fed up on promises and they
are dead, dog-tired of delays."
Congress Is to be petitioned to pass
a resolution asking President Wilson
to direct the railroad labor board to
hear the complaints of the non-rec
ognized railroad workers, R. J. Mitch
