Merchant Marine Act
Washington, July 9. Operation of
tne merchant marine act will bring Into-
force the section of the Underwood
tariff law of 1913 imposing a discrim
inatory duty of 6 per cent on oow
entering the United States in foreign
bottoms, In the opinion of some diplo
mats who have studied the new trip
Application of this section of the
Underwood act was suspended by a
decision of the supreme court in 1917
because the act provided that the dis
criminatory duty should not annlv if
'in conflict with any reserved treaty
right. The court held that the section
was in conflict with the provision of
the treaty of 1815 between the United
States and Great Britain.

Toll Gate Riles
Clouds are gathering over the Sa'n
tlam' road and may break In a storm
unless the Oregon-Washington Colon
ization company poon takes steps
either toward improving the road or
toward eliminating the toll gate,
which, after having fallen Into die
use through having been abandoned
for the last six years, has now, with
the prospect of state and county high
way extension, been restored. Ac
cording to travelers returning ironi
the gate, which is located at White
City, two miles above Cascadia, re
port that the company is collecting
tolls at the rate- of $3 " for a two
horse team, $3.50 for a four horsa
team, and $6 for an automobile.
It is "claimed that the colonization
company has not done one bit of im
provement work since abandoning
the road six years ago, at which time
it is alleged they admitted the toll
road to be a liability and an "ele
phant" on their hands. Since then the
forest service has done all of tha
maintenance, and is solely responsl-1
ble for the fact that the road his
been kept open from Cascadia near
where the county road ends, to Fish
lake, according to. Supervisor C. C
. i .: ' - Much Money Spent . y
.The forest service spent $2000 up
on this road last year, has spent $5,-
000 upon, it since the colonization
company abandoned it, and Is now
doing all of the -repair work while
.the colonization company is deriving
the benefit through toll collection.
it is charged unofficially that the
reason for the resumption of the toll
Kate is largely a desire on the part
or tne .colonization company to hold
up -the state and county in case the
public should wish to take over the
road In order to establish a state
highway over the mountains. I tis
rumored that the company will ask
$200,000 for its rights should the
state on county seek to use the road.
Taxation as a remedy for this af
fliction has been suggested. It is
said that if the company should set
its price at the $200,000 mark, the
price would come down rapidly if
this valuation should be entered up
on the assessment rolls.
Reds Capture Town.
London, July 9. The occupation of
the town of Staro Konstantinoff, about

by wireless today. It states the town

Be Put on Highway
The present plans of the highway
commission were to construct the
short cut and a stub road to both Dal
las and Independence. Regarding this
proposition the Judge said: "No road
can be properly regarded as the Pa
cific highway unless it runs through
Dallas. I don't think a stug: is equiva
lent to building a road through a city.
Apparently for all practical purposes
it would serve the city of Dallas 'as
well commercially, but the road "from
Almity to Monmouth coud not be des
ignated, properly, as the Pacific high
way. I am strongly of the opinion that
the highway commlsison is better qual
ified than the legislature to designate
the best commercial road, but the leg
islature did designate Dallas on the
route and the highway must run to
that town and from there to the next
point -But I do not think tha he
commission can be cosmpelled to pave
this particular road at the present tin.,,
and a writ of mandamus does not prop
erly lie. . ,
As to the injunction, the law desig
nates roads to be built first shall be
roads of commercial importance, con
tributing most to the growth of tm
state and deevlopment of. its resources.
The highway commission has a right
to use available funds to build roads
other than Uie Pacific highway, and
other designated highways, If believed
to-be of first commercial Importance,
but it cpuld not use any part of the
Pacific highway funds raised by the
bond issues to build any branch road."
The court's opinion in the matter
seems to be universally pleasing to the
people of Polk county and there is no
room for long controversy and ulti-j
ties with a score of other countries
must be abrogated under the section
imposing the duty of the merchant
' In the case of the British treaty one
year's notice is necessary and conse
quently no discriminatory duty can be
imposed on goods entering the United
States in British bottoms until the ex
piration of that period.
Some diplomats believe that it wa
the clear intent of congress to reserve
to itself the right to impose the dis
criminatory duties by future legisla
tion but they declare that unless such
legislation Is enacted before the trea
ties are abrogated the 5 per cent dis
criminatory duty imposed by the Un
derwood law automatically will come
Into force. . .

deleeates signed at 11:45 o'clock this
morning an engagement accepting the
terms of the allied note relative to dis
armament presented yesterday.' This
action was taken under protest by the
The allied note demanded that the
Germans accept the terms presented
by noon today, and stipulated that. If
the Germans failed to carry out the
provisions of the demands, allied
forces -would occupy parts of Ger

The Germans protested that the
Versailles treaty did not oblige them
to acquiesce in further territorial oc
cupations except for failure to fulfill
the treaty terms regarding reparations.
The German cabinet unanimously
decided to obey the allied demand
early this morning. The vote was tak
en after a -telephonic-communication
with reichstag leaders in Berlin.
The German protest was submitted
in writing. In it the delegates denied
authority to consent to occupational
German territory except as provided
for in the treaty of Versailles.
