RAIN GONTflOL WILL CONTINUE DU FJffi HANDLE Many Staple Artlclr of Food Will Ho Hcaico Throughout England During the Winter No IUho Ex pected In Price of Sugar . SUPPLY OF GAS ENTIRELY OUT OiiNolino Hupply in Kliiniutii Fulls Completely Exhausted Fho Days Itcfuro Relief Can lie Secured From New Shipments Klamath Falls is 'gasless' and In dications aro that no Immediate ro llot can bo looked for boforo a three day period. 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 can producers and refiners. Uoth tho abovo named hnndlors of gasollno aro completely out. However tho Standard Oil Company jecoived word this morning that thoy would have, 10,000 gnllonB on Monday, whllo tho Union Oil company expects relief the early part of tho noxt week. According to local garago men au to owners will not bo put to any spo clal inconvenlenco In that distlllato can bo Obtained in abundance. They sny that more powor can bo secured from distlllato than gasollno, tho big drawback bolng that distlllato is of little ubo for motor operation until tho onglno Is woll-wnrmod. Tho W. E. Soohorn Company Is experiment ing today in oporntlng tholr wood trucks with distlllato, tholr supply of gasollno having been completely exhausted. Both tho Klamath Dyo Works and tho D, & M. Cleaning Company will bo unablo to cloun clothes if thoy do not get a supply of gasollno within the noxt 24 hours. Thoy cannot use distillate in cleaning with any sue- cess. Lato this afternoon Mr. Colvln ad vised the Herald that he had boon succossful In borrowing nearly a hun drod gallons of gasollno and this ho would reserve for the exclusive use of physicians. He will not deliver lt and lt will be supplied only to doctors who come In person. This is done for the purpose of making It possible to keep tho cars belonging to physicians In use. 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 more. 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.

NEW YORK, Sept. 12. Samuel Gompers, president of tho Amorlcan Fodoratlon of Labor, appealed to the Boston policemen today to return to tholr work', ponding a conference that will bo hold with President Wil son on October 6th. 1 0 T T IN AIRED IN TRIAL 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. CENSOR USES BLUE PENCIL MONTAUBAN, France, Sept. 15 Censorshlp still exists in some re spects in Franco. Commenting up on a law which lt believed to be Il legal, a local newspaper recently published an article beginning: "One need not obey unjust laws and decrees." The censor ran a blunt blue pencil through tho sentence. For several days the paper attempted to put that sentence In print crediting lt in turn to St. Thomas, Leo XIII, Minos, Solon Lycurgus and Aristotle but the cen sor crossed it out every time.

Hammond of Eugene, was unani mously elected commander ot the Third Oregon today to succeed Col onel May. 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 sion. 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. 0VMiyAAAAr (Continued ou Page 6).
