JPhone Main 82.
No information is at hand to explain, or to leave other
than deeply mysterious, the effects ascribed in a dispatch
sent from Dieppe, to the new French field gun. The cor
respondent told of groups of men numbering sixty, who,
after subjection to the sudden fire of these weapons, were
found overwhelmed by sudden death and yet showing no
We have long known of shells that on explosion dif
fused trough several yards of space an asphyxiating gas,
but except in inclosed places such shells are not capable of
the wholesale slaughter described in the dispatch, and the
discoloration of the victims who do not escape always
makes clear the manner and cause of their deaih. The
betraying yellow tint is not mentioned in this case.
Just a fortnight ago another correspondent in France
hinted vaguely of a "surprise" that was in store for the
Germans of a military utensil or expedient so dreadfully
.effective that it would be used only in a desperate emer
gency and as a last resort. One was almost compelled to
suspect that the "atomic bombs" of H. G. Well's ingenious
imagination had become a reality a suspicion that had
something more than the shadow of foundation in the re
cent discoveries as to the enormous, the appalling, store
of energy that lies imprisoned in every atom of so-called
dead matter. But the bombs prophesied by Mr. Wells are
to act in a way wholly different from that in wiiich the
French cannon are said to do their killing, so his picture
of "the last war" does not help us to an understanding of
how those unhappy Germans perished if they did.
, It is interesting to the newspaper man, as he reads his
exchanges, to see how sharp the competition is for new
manufacturing industries. Cities from far and near tum
ble over each other with special inducements, the moment
they hear that any concern contemplates a move.
Our town should be active in this game, difficult as it
ia. Meanwhile the fact is worth attention, that many a
town while campaigning earnestly for distant concerns,
w neglecting chances that originate at home.
There are young men in this place, as there are every
where, who would be perfectly competent to manage a
business proposition, if they had capital. They would like
to start a new industry here. Meanwhile money is being
pent away, because our people don't know of hopeful
chances to invest at home.
The concern from a distance that may be attracted by
ppecial inducements, may or may not stay when the in
ducements expire. The concern backed oy home enter
prise and capital is rooted in home soil.
To many people, the distant investment looks more at
tractive. But it might not seem so, if examined on the
epot. Money invested at home is under close inspection,
which should prevent losses. Wherefore, when our own
people want a little capital to start a new enterprise, their
claims siiouiu nave tne most carcuu consideration.
France is trying to solve the problem of getting rid
of her Apaches, a criminal society, and one of the worst
if not the worst in the world. Too humane to kill them in
cold blood, she has found the present war a means of put
ting them to death honorably and in place of better men.
They have been gathered up and sent to the firing line,
where they can indulge in the luxury of murder to their
hearts content. This is all nght for the b renchmen in
whose places they die, but it is a little tough on the Ger
mans to have to die fighting that kind of men. At the
same time it is supposable that a man killed by a bullet in
battle would be extraordinarily finical if he differentiated
as to the kind of bullet he preferred to be killed by, or the
style or, character ot the man who tired it.
The Oregonian gives the state fair a gratuitous slap
by saying in substance that while the distance from Port
land to I he Dalles is nearly twice as great as that to ba
lem, all who can afford to make the trip should do so, so
as "to see something different and worth while." Its urg
ing Portland folks to attend the fair at The Dalles is all
right, for the fair at that place is no doubt well worth see
ing. Just why it should belittle the state fair in thus call
ing attention to the Wasco county fair is one of those
things that, like most of the Oregonian's actions, are past
finding out. The state fair this year is one of the best ever
held in the state, and is certainly "worth while" in spite
of the Oregonian's uncalled-for sneer.
Editorially it was stated in Wednesday's Capital Jour
nal that the cost of the European war would amount to
more than $5,000,000 in a year. Since that was written
an article on the war has reached our desk, in which the
actual cost of the war, not only in money paid out, but in
loss of commerce and that following the stopping of in
dustrial pursuits, is stated to be not less than $o0,000,000
a day, and mat already tne war nas cost $.s,uuu,uuu,uuu.
This in two months. If it is continued for a year instead
of costing, as we stated, $5,000,000,000 in one year the cost
will reach the grand total of more than $18,000,000,000.

Vacationists may return strupel, but
they don't worry so long as the money

Many country bovs wilf attend ngri

won t have to work farming.
Now it is suggested that the school chiklren petition
the rulers of Europe to stop the war. Someone suggests
that the rulers would not see these petitions, they getting
no nearer than some secretary, but that it would be a
good move anyway because it would impress the peace
idea on the youthful mind. This was the boy's theory, who
encouraged the old man to let the hound pups chew him
up because "it would be the making of the pupp."
By tonight the male pheasant will wish, like the young
fellow drafted during the war, that he had been born a
girl. He will also have a pretty accurate idea of condi
tions on the firing line in Europe. It is a safe bet the lady
pheasants will not be clamoring for equal rights, anyway,
at this time of the year.
In spite of the little cloud that darkened the sky for a
few days in Mexico, it looks as though there was to be
peace there soon, and established on a firm basis. Watch
ful waiting may seem slow to some fire-eaters, but if it
wins it beats the kind of arguments that are being made
in Europe just now. ,
With a war tax of two cents a gallon on gaso'ine the
question arises as to just what portion of the tax will be
borne by John D. and Standard Oil. It is our guess that
John will pay just that portion of it he can put in cold
storage in his eye without troubling that optic.
The Tacoma Tribune suggests that there might be no
strong protest against a war tax of one cent on each pos
tal picture card. Such a tax would surely relieve the situ
ation some and produce quite a good sized revenue.

Only a few days ago the story was that the crop in Ger

and that the same conditions existed in England. Yester
day hops were sold in Salem at 10 cents a pound and it
was asserted that the German crop was an exceptionally
rond one, had all been successfully harvested and the Eng
lish crop was also large and safe. On top of this it was
announced that the consumption of beer in Germany and
England had fallen off materially and even here in the
United States there was a like falling off in beer consump

ONE OF TIIE SIGHTS of Salem, and not the
least, is the plant of the Salem Bakery,
where hundreds of loaves of bread can be
seen each day in course of making and bak
ing by the latest improved methods. Every effort
has been put forth to make Pennant Brand Bread
the best bread in Salem, and, judging from the in
crease of its sales, our efforts have not been in vaii.
If you haven't tried Pennant Bread yet, get a loaf
today at your grocer's, or if he can't supply you, call
2186 and we'll deliver to any place in Salem.
