Local officials of both tho Union
Oil and Standurd Oil Companies
placo tho causo of tho dlro shortage
as bolng duo to a curtailment in pro
duction, shortage of cars and tanks,
and tho fact thut Europo is drawing
hoavily on tho output of tho Ameri

aro completely out. However tho
Standard Oil Company jecoived word
this morning that thoy would have,

Union Oil company expects relief the
early part of tho noxt week.
According to local garago men au

sny that more powor can bo secured

YOItK, Eng., Uopt. 12. Abund
ance of Imported meat, bacon, mar
gcrlne, cheese, rice ,tea, sugar and
applca Is assured tho peoplo ot Oreat
Britain the coming winter by the
authorities but homo grown prod
ucts such as milk, meat, butter and
dried fruits, It Is Bald, will bo scarce
and costly.
Meanwhile tho government food
control will continue in order that
rich and poor alike may share In
the avallablo Bupplies. Nothing Ilko
tho hardships endured during tho
last two years of the war is antici
pated becauso the government su
pervision and distribution will not
bo so rigorous as when Halg's army
had Its "back to tho wall."
Tho expenso of feeding and fat
tening cattio Is tho factor that will
make homo-grown meat s'carce. Hay
and oat cropH are abnormally short,
and root yields In some parts of the
country aro almost a failure. Cattio
"cake," which will have to bo used
more freely, Is raoro expensive than
,last year.
Tho same considerations apply to
milk. Tho prlco for August was
fixed at 68 cents per gallon to tho
dairymen, and for September at 75
cents. Last winter it was 20 cents
a quart, but higher prices aro ex
pected the coming winter.
Thoro Is plenty of tea in tho coun
try, but transportation systems are
so out of Joint, dealers say, it will
cost more to handlo and distribute it.
liacon prices aro rising In America,
which makes tho British price, port
and dock dolays, due to strikes and
tho general apathy ot labor, contrib
ute to higher prices.
Nobody Is worrying about sugar
except as to prices. Tho sugar com
mission has been very active in tho
general market, and has obtained
enough to last the country until the
end of the year at prices which, it
is declared, are a littlo below the
avorago of Europo, but, of course,
much higher than tho American
price. If the commission had to go
into the market now it would be
compelled to pay as much for sugar
as the presont retail price and as it
will likoly have to do that early next
year the consumer expects to pay
Apples are higher and scarce, the
controlled prlco bolng 18 cents a
pound. It is expected, however, that
tho lino crop hero In England will
servo to reduce this price materially
beforo tho wlntor comes.
Uakors and tho government ex
pect to lncrense tho cost of broad.
Thoro are abundant wheat supplies
in Australia and tho Argentine, but
tho scarcity of shipping makes Im
mediate delivery possible Eng
land must depend on tho United
Statos and Canada which, tho au
thorities say, means costlier loaves.

PORTLAND, Sopt. 12. United
States District Forester George H.
Cecil testified today that ho recom
mended to Brigadier General Dlsque
in April 1918, that the Clallam coun
ty spruco should be tapped by rail
road via Clallam Bay and tho Hokeo
River routo over which tho Goodyear
Lumber Co., would build its railroad
for 15,000,000.
Instead of this Dlsque adopted a
$40,000,000 routo after conferring
with the Milwaukee railroad officials.
Testimony today ahowod that the
Hammond Lumber Company, In Clat
sop County got '4G2,000 for 2,234,
000 feot of spruce. Thoy built tho
railroad and acquired lt In settle
ment. Dlsquo announced that ho
would not testify again until the
hoarlnga at Washington D. C.
Following up the complaint that
has been made about tho increased
cost ot school books. Tho Herald call
ed upon C. H. Underwood of Under
wood's Pharmacy and Carl Plath of
tho Star Drug company, and these
gentlomon were perfectly willing to
submit the matter to tho Judgment of
the people of Klamath county. When
the state law was passed some years
ago it provided for a change to be
made in text books every six years. It
also provided that the maximum al
lowed for handling these books
should bo fifteen percent. This in
cluded transportation charges. Add to
this tho overhead and theso stores
lose money in handling the books.
Unquestionably It is a great accom
modation to tho parents to have the
stores handlo books, but should not bo
expected to handle them at a loss. If
the parents had to sond away for
books and pay the postage, the prices
would bo far in excesg of that charg
ed here, not taking Into consideration
tho delay of many days. Tho postage
from Portland on the average book
would be about eight cents.
In regard to the question of prices,
Mr. Underwood said:
"School 'books are handled at a
positivo loss and the only reason we
handle them at all Is that a multi
tude of people are brought to the
store and wo consider this to be good
advertising. In other words, we are
accommodating the public by selling
tho books, but we endeavor to give
them the best of service. It has been
our custom, whenever necessary, to
order books by wire, have them sent
by express and to do everything in
our power to render real service to'
our customers and the schools."
Tho reply qf Mr. Plath was sub
stantially the same. "Our business is
no different from any other," said
Mr. Plath, "Wo have our expenses
and they havo Increased Just the
samo as tho cost of handling every
other business has increased. The
margin allowed by the state was
made years ago and it does not take
Into consideration the increase in
freight, express and telegraph serv
ice which we have to stand. We actu
ally lose monoy on the present way
of operating. Wo have never sought
to make a profit, but wo ought to at
least have a chance to break even and
this wo nro not do'ng."
In response to telegrams sent by
tho county school superintendent,
Miss Twlla Head, and the Women's
Improvement Club, Stato Superinten
dent Churchill hag replied that he
has taken the matter up with the J.
K, Gill'company, which -concern has
tho handling of the books for the
state, and that he is in receipt of a
lotter from them stating that books
would be sold at tho prlco stipulated
by the law.
MONTAUBAN, France, Sept. 15
Censorshlp still exists in some re
spects in Franco. Commenting up

VICTORIA, B. C, Sept. 12. "Can
ada and the United States, during;
tho century ot neighborllness, have
set an example for world emulation,"
was the declaration of Secretary or
the Nevy Daniels, at the reception .
tendered him here today by the Can
adian Club on his arrival with Ad
miral Rodman and a squadron of the .
Few American Pacific fleet.
The head of the United States nary
emphasized the comradshlp which,
had existed during the Great War -between
the fighting men of Great Bri
tain and America and declared that
the world looked to the leaders in
the allied cause to mobilize for peace
as they had mobilized and co-operat-
ed for war.
Secretary Daniels said In part:
The treaty which forbids forts
and fortifications between the Unit
ed States, and Canada, or the pres
ence of fighting ships on the Great
lakes, speaks trumpet-tongued ot the-,
brotherhood of the two people. Is It
not more than that? Does it not pre
saged the coming of the day, in the
full fruition of the League of Nations,.
when other nations will feel sufflct-.
ent security in international Justlce
not to feel the compulsion of main
taining powferful armies and con
tinuing competitive naval building?
Set Fine Example.
Canada and the United States dur
ing the century of neighborliness
havo indeed set the example for
world emulation. We know each
other too well for one to distress the
other. It is ignorance of each other
which is the parent of most national
misunderstandings aqd hatred. In
timate contact and close association,
have taught us that in our ideals.
our hopes, our aims there is no differ-
ence between the people dwelling
north of the invisible dividing lino,
and those living south of it.
Both countries have been settled
by pioneers who have won prosperity
by blazing new trials. Common hard
ships and common danger united the
early settlers. Common heritage of
free Institution has made us brothers.
Magna Carta belongs as much to the
people of the United States as to the
people ot Canada and the principle
that all Governments derive their
Just power from the consent of the
governed is a cardinal doctrine of all
English speaking nations.
Our navies demonstrated that in.
the late analysis sea power is the de
termining force in a world where
some kind, of force must defeat agres
Now that tho war has ended mar
we not hope and believe the wisdom
ot worlds statesmanship will ring In
a thousand years ot peace? We hare
spent ot our youth lavishly and 1am
et our loss, but not without a touch,
of pride In their glorious service. We
have burdoned ourselves with heavy
debt which must Impose private and.
publlo economy. This Is not an unmix
ed evil, for there was need for a re
turn to individual and governmental
appreciation ot the wisdom of fruited
living. But that we have lost strong
manhood in rebuilding up of our
world we have the heritage that our
race in our day has given the highest
proof that we still lovo liberty and
honor moro than lite and property.
That realization will glvo us a new
consecretlon as wo take up the duty
of reconstruction. Thero are many
obstaclos, but our attitude is that ot
Mr. Cobden when told by a friend.
