Loan to Buy
Washington, May 21. A loan of at

to purchase equipment required to
meet transportation needs of the pub

The commission in a few hours has
taken three other important steps to
ward breaking the freight congestion.
Tthese were orders for:
Forwarding of traffic without refer
ence to previous routing; abrogation
of all railroad rules governing car serv
ice; transfer of 32,000 coal cars from
west to east and of 20,000 box cars
from east to grain fields of the west.

among his former associates. Mrs.
Moses, who is also ill, was left penni
less, without funds or relatives save in
the far east and Red Cross requests
contributions for her assistance sent to
Mrs. Iodd of the relief bureau.
The case' brought out the lack of
charity among Some of Salem's well-to-do,
who are asked by the nurse who
donated her services, to contribute a
few flowers from their gardens for the
funeral and brusquely refused. One
wealhty woman with hundreds of
blooming tulips, refused to give a
blossom and slammed the door in the
face of the solicitor. The flowers, like
the contributions, came from those less

New York, May 21. The price cut

some wholesalers, when managers and

announced they would refuse to pur.

ductions of from 15 to 60 per cent now
demand that wholesalers make con
cessions to them.
Food Prices Drop.
Some wholesalers of wearing appar
el declared they believed the price cut
ting movement to be artificial and un
economic, asserting that It has stimu
lated buying without a corresponding
Increase in production, and a reaction
was baind-to eofie.
The first reduction in food was an
nounced yesterday when one of V-i
largest cabarets and restaurants in tlu
city stated It had had all items on Its
menu reduced 30 per cent.
Washington, May 21. The wave of
price reduction in wearing apparel
which has spread to every important
city is due largely to public withdrawal
from the market and to the investiga
tion conducted by the department of
Justice, in the opinion of Assistant At

Must Satisfy Villa Before
Securing His Retirement
In Camp With General Villa, Boquillas, Chihuahua, May 19. -(Via
El Paso, Texas, May 21) (By The Associated Press) Fran-
cisco Villa, variously described as a revolutionist, patriot and ban-
dit, is yet a factor in Mexican affairs, as ready and willing to take
the field against the newest revolutionary forces as he was against
Carranza, he told the Associated Press here today.
Villa, the man who drew the Amer-
lean army under General Pershing in
close pursuit ot him .after the raid on
Columbus, N. M., in 1916 when Vlllle
tas raided that bordertown, declared
the successor of Carransa must fullest
satisfy his Ideals of government before
he would retire to private life and quit
the life of a "Robin Hood."
Villa does not like General Alvaro
Obregon, candidate for the presidency
of Mexico, who apparently has become
the "man of the hour" In Mexico
through the country's new revolution.
Obregon Is the Mexican leader who
first decisively defeated Villa. This
fight occurred at Celaya, Obregon then
whs leading Carranza troops against
Villa and later became minister of war
in the Carranza cabinet.
Villa would not make public the
guarantees he demands from the new
government except politicians must be
kept from ruling Mexico.
Grieves for Angeles,
Villa's greatest emotional period was
during questioning concerning General
Felipe Angeles, who was executed by
Cararnza forces at Chihuahua in No
vember last for rebellion against the
government. Tears came to Villa's
eyes as he discussed Angeles and con
demned the men who ordered him ex
ecuted. "Angeles Is the man Mexico should
have now, he said.
Villa declared Carransa officials
prevailed on American officials at El
Paso ln June last to cross the Rio
Grande and drive him from his attack
on the city, which he was about to take
In oompany with Angeles.
Chihuahua' City, Mexico, May 20.
Via El Phsq, May 21 General P. Ellas
Calles, minister ot war for the new
revolutionary government left here, to
night for Torreon for Mexico City aft
er a conference with envoys from Gen
eral Francisco Villa.
The conference, It was understood,
did not result in the acceptance of con
ditions laid down by Villa whereby he
would retire to private life.
Elimination of Villa as a military or
bandit factor In the immodlate future
because of the conference, is believed
unlikely. However, revolutionists an
nounced means for his elimination
were being considered.

The state emeregncy board will be

the call will be issued within the next1
few days. ' The fund so far authorised

Even If the mllluge measure on to
