of the Hanswn Sash & Door factory.
Citizens along Church street from

of having that thoroughfare Improved
with hard surface pavement, declares
Mr. Hansen, hut the only drawback Is
the extremely heavy grade located 1m.

There Is very little doubt but what
this street will be improved within a
short time, as the majority of the
owners of property facing the street
are In favor of such an improvement
on account of that section of the city

POLICEMEN CAX NO
LONGER RIDE FREE
The local office of the Portland,
Eugene & Eastern, itailway Co. today
notified police headquarters that
heniafter policemen must pay their
fare on Salem Btreet cars or walk. The
railway company is required to make
thlB demand as a result of the passage
in the general election of the public
A further provision is made, howev
er, which will probably be applied to
local conditions to give back to the
cops their former privilege of riding
free of charge. The city council may
apply to the company for free passage
of certain people In Its employ, and
the company may g-ant such a re
quest. Concerning l ire Limit.
An ordinance Introduced at the
council meeting on Monday night pro
poses to exempt from the fire limits
the Spaulding Logging Co. and the
Salem Iron Works, and because only
these two property holders are to be
exempted, the bill was strongly ob
jected to by Councilman White.
An old ordinance placed the west
(Ire limits at tbo middle of Front
street. Six weeks ago another ordi
nance was passed extending the limits
a half block farther to the west, tak
ing in both tho Spaulding property and
the Iron works. These firms asked to
be exempted, but Councilman White
holds that there is other property In
the proposed limit that Is as much en
titled to exemption. His objection re
sulted in the bill's being referred to
the fire and water committee.

military authorities, than the manner
in which both Bulgarians and Turks
controlled the army of war corre

which Germany will be Involved.
"There will be no 80 or lno newspa

whom will be Americans, representing
two American news agencies.
