Flax Move is Protested.
Salem E. J. Hansett, manager of
the Oregon Flax Fiber company at
Turner and former superintendent of
the flax plant at the penitentiary, has
written a letter in which he protests
against the move of the State board of
control in planning to sell flaxseed to
a firm in Belfast, Ireland. He states
that if the move is made it will mean
a drawback to the flax industry in Ore
gon, and that mills at Eugene and Tur
ner must shut down. He gives as a
reason for this assertion that the mills
named have disposed of their seed, ex
pecting to get more later from the
He declares that he has just re
ceived a telegram from a New York
capitalist who is planning to come to
the state in January and construct a
large plant in Oregon. In event the
deal with the Belfast firm proves suc

may be checkmated, he states.
Apple Crop Cleaned Up.
Newberg Heretofore there has
been heavy loss to orchardists in this
vicinity through lack of a markelt for
anything but highgrade apples. This
year the entire apple crop was in de
mand, the "seconds" being all takeri
by the Jones Bros. & Co. factory for
cider and vinegar. In addition, 11
carloads of apples were shipped to the
factory from other localities in the
The plant ground up 1,184,295
pounds of apples, which produced 100,
038 gallons of juice. They also pro
duced 40,000 gallons of loganberry
juice. This was the first year of oper
ations. They gave employment to 25
men. Additions are to be made to the
building next year. They are con
tracting for loganberries for a term
of five years at $60 a ton.
Help Limit is Proposed.
Salem A request to the coming leg

dustrial Accident commission for an
amendment to section 6 of the act cre
ating the commisssion, to remove the
present limitation of $25,000 which
can be expended annually for the serv
ices of clerks and assistants.
"That limitation was included in the
original law," stated Commissioner
Abrams in discussing the proposed
amendment. "When it was passed in
the final week in December, has
brought in $565,000, showing the rapid
increase in business owning to the
speeding up of industries. "

Marshfield City Marshal Apperson,

FOOD COST PROBE STARTED
Department of Justice Agent Comes
to Portland for Purpose.
Portland Special Agent Bryon, of
the United States department of Jus
tice, has begun investigations of the
cost of food here to determine if there
have been violations of the Sherman
anti-trust law. United States Attor
ney Reames has charge of the investi
gations in this district.
As the department of Justice has
jurisdiction over only interstate busi
ness and traffic, any irregularities oc
curing within the state must necessar
ily be taken care of by state prose
cutors. In the event irregularites are dis
covered the facts will be laid before
the Federal grand jury.
No details of the extent of the in
vestigations are possible, as such would
be quite problematical, but it is known
that Mr. Bryon has a number of asso
ciates in the field and his work and
that of his lieutenants will be most ex
haustive. Every article of food that requires
large capital to produce will be under
the surveillance of the Federal officers.
They will trace prices from production
The major part of the investigations
will surround the methods of price fix

handsome return for their product.

ENGLAND STILL SUSPICIOUS
"Something Behind" Belief Prevalent
in Minds of Many.
London The Monday morning news
papers again are giving ample space to
President Wilson's note, assidously
seeking to penetrate any possibly con
cealed motive that may have led the
President to what is considered here a
most inopportune movement.
According to the Washington cor
respondents of London newspapers the
opinion in the United States as well as
here is that there must be "someth
ing behind it," and it is the opinion of
many of the newspaper writers that
this act was inadvertently revealed by
Secretary of State Lansing when he
referred to the United States as on the
verge of being drawn into the war.
The suggestion iB put forward by
some of the writerB that what would
possibly so involve the United States
would be a resumption on a still
Lord Curzon Will Wed

The engagement of Lord Curzon,
just named a member of the British
war council, to Mrs. Grace Elvina
Duggan, widow of Alfred Duggan, of
Buenos Ayres, and daughter of the
late J. Munroe Hinds, once American
minister to Brazil, has been announced
His wife, Mary Victoria Leiter,
daughter of the Chicago millionaire,
died ten years ago. Mrs. Duggan is a
native of Alabama. She is tall and
handsome, and has been known in Eu
ropean capitals for some years. Her
former husband made a large fortune

The passage in the President s note
to which he professes to find the aimB
of both belligerent groups indentical
and his qualifying phrase in the con
text, "as stated in general terms to
their own people and to the world,
for the most part is ignored, except in
the columns of newspapers of pacifist
tendencies. It cannot be said that
these late press opinions show less op
position to the President s action than
those of last week.
The Morning Post says the king's
speech in parliament was perhaps the
best answer that could be made to
"the President's amiable proposal."
Alluding to the President's belief that
the nations are ready to welcome a
league of peace, the newspaper says:
With our experience with these
leagues of peace behind us, we should
think twice and thrice before throwing
over trusted allies in order to put our
fortunes to the vote of Guatemala,
Hiati, Siam and other nations, large
and small, which would compose such
The Daily News, one of the most fa
vorable of the newspapers to President
Wilson, says editorially that the recep
tion of his note was respectful but un
compromising. "What had to be said
has been said, for the most part in
language which America will neither
misunderstood nor resent."
El Arish Lost by Turks.
London El Arish, 90 miles east of
the Suez canal, was captured Saturday
by the British. The text of the Bri
tish official statement says:
"Saturday the Egyptian town of El
Arish was occupied by our troops after
being for two years in the hands of the
enemy. From the fact that the enemy
had constructed a storng entrenched
position covering the town and that a
large amount of work recently had
been carried out there, it appeared that
the enemy had every intention of offer
ing a stubborn resistance."
Coins Carry New Designs.
