However, the Paullitas aren't los ing a lot of sleep. ' They have pulled out 'of worse scrapes than this, they remark with a smile, and things will break their way sure Inside of the next six months. The whole coffee situation Is much the same as the sugar crisis in Cuba. During the war evervbodv wanted coffee and price was no ob ject. Faiendas doubled the num ber of their trees, prices soared and everybody had money to burn. Like tho Cubans, some of tho Brazilian Fazendelros burned It and these are the people who are suffering most now. Others Including many wealthy old Italian Immigrants stuck to the woolen sock of Europe and nr routed a force of game wardens on Willamette river between here and Oregon City, In a series of vicious gang fights and gun battles last night and early today. Many wore hurt, but none seriously. Wardens. under Roy Bremmer, are being armed here for a cleanup tonight. The state fish commission is considering a call for military aid in policing the river. The wardens were en gaged in last night's battles. Fire Whistle Ashland and residents have a strong desire to sleep, that Is, nt the appointed hours deemed sac red for that purpose. Further more, they are very much awake during the day and do not care to be constantly railed upon to decide whether the fir.) station whlstel is serious or merely "blowing." That Is the sub stance and purport of a petition recently signed by 2o Ashland resi dents and read before the city council recently with the conclud ing plea that tho alleged nuisance be abolished. Investigation brought forth the following fact The electric current which gives the "glow" to the tire whistle is supplied by the Western I'alou Telegraph company. The company supplies the current by means of two dy namos, used alternately because Of the excessive' heat attained by the exclusive use of one. In some technical way the switching from dynamo to dynamo causes the In termittent blowing of the whistle which has been itnnoylni; resi dents. The city council, says Fire Chief Robinson, U considering the matter getting the necessary power for the "blow" from the I'os(al Telegraph, which company It is claimed will supply electric current of a more tractable nature.
