New Store in Change of Rates By Parcel Post Hereafter, if a postoffiee is only 150 miles frojjn Snlum on an air line, but 300 miles or over by rail or stage, the parcel post rate will apply to the ac tual distance traveled in delivering, and not as the crow flies. Heretofore, it hna hppn tim Cllutrnn tn fiirnvn 7finp rates on an' air line distance, but the government has concluded this is not good business, and beginning tomorrow, zones from uny single point will be fig ured on nctual distance traveled. With the exception of a few towns, this will take tho counties of Crook, Curry, Lake, Coos, Klamath and Jefferson out of the second zone from Salem and ninke a third zone rate effective. Heretofore a five-poind parcel post package could bo shipped from Salem into these coun ties for 9 cents, the second zone rate. Now it will cost 14 cents. For a 10 pound package, the second zone ratf was 14 cents. Now on the third zone rating, the same 10 pounds will cost 24 cents. This order from the post office department at Washington goes into effect today. je $ IT'S EASY TO PEEL OFF YOUR TAN OB FBECKLES Tiis is what you should do to she a spoiled complexion: Spread evenly over the face, covering every inch of s'tin, a thin layer of ordinary niercolied wax.

Feet Salem L Report of Work Done During Past Three Months Just Issued A report of the activities of the Com mercial Club during its first quarter since the re-organization, has just been issued by the president, W. M. Hamil ton. The total membership of the Chamber of Commerce, now numbers 825 and the total income for the first quarter has been $4,809. The biggest single activity of the club was the Cherry Fair, held July 2 and 3, which has been conceded by all to have been one of the most success ful affairs ever ghen in the city, and at an expense uliuut, half tho usual amount. Additional work of the club has been the distributing of hundreds of bottles of loganberry juice to the touring Shriners, Elks and other lodges and the entertaining of several excursion par ties, among thciu the Iowa newspaper delegation. The agricultural department has been busy attempting to solve the market proposition for the fanners living near tho city. A successful market day was held August 7, one that was attended by hundreds of fanners. This department has established booths at Kerry and Liberty streets, but there is a feeling Binong many of the members that the success of" this market movement de pends solely wilh the farmers. At the suggestion and urging of L. H. McMnhan, a iniinicipul swimming booth was established. During August more than 10,1100 were on the beach, and be sides the pleasure given, the Club feels thnt the beach may have prevented many drownings during the bathing season. The Industrial department hns In. vestiirated several factory propositions, Many have not proved available. The Department, however, succeeded in aun in ir the Abbott Hroom factory to Salem's growing IWt of payrolls. The Club now is laying plans for the giving of a proper welcome to the Land Grant Congress to meet here 200 strong September 16th. OOETHAX8 VIEWS PUBLIC WORKS Portland. Ore., Sept. 1.

Aug. 2S, 1 9 1 .". Somo form of relief in tiie foreign exchange, situation is imperative, uud a solution will undoubtedly bo facilitat ed by tho conference between American and British bunkers now on the way to this port. Our foreigu trade contin ues seriously derailed, imports being greatly curtailed while exports persis tently show a tremendous expansion. For cxainple, the exports from New York during the week ending August 14th were $31,N00,000 against $10,700, 000 the same week last year; while cr.ir imports, though increasing slightly, are still running far below normal. This excessive preponderance of exports will continue, and probably upon an even larger scale during the remainder of tiic calendar year. On .Tune ilOth, the excess of exports had reached $1,000,- 000,000, and some authorities estimate that it will touch as high as &.W), 000,000 bv December Hist. Kurope can not pay in merchandise or gold; some form of credit must be established if we aro to accept foreign war orders The urgency of the crisis is emphasized bv the coming to New oi k of Lou ilon '8 leading bankers. The idea of importing 2.50,0110,000 gold is less pop ular here thnn when first broached. Tho supply of the precious metal in this country now estimated at nearly $2, 000,000,000 is so excessive that our bankers are naturally unwilling to sec any further addition because of its use lossnoss and its possible inflationary tendencies. The latter must be care fully guarded against. It is well to re member, however, that it is inflation of credit that is most dangerous, and bankers always have it within their power to curtail credit, whether based upon gold, seeuritios, merchandise or reputation. An excess of gold or money may nnd sometimes does cause inflation, but this tendency can always be avoid ed by those who control the lending sit uation; and now that the federal re servo system is in oKrntioii inflation could bo much more easily resisted. Moreover, if this proposed $2.50,000,000 in gold were imported, the credit based thereon would be almost entirely de voted to financing foreign war orders, and would have little effect here be yond tho stimulus of wnr orders which has already been experienced and large ly discounted in the present high prices of tho wnr group shares. Tho settle ment of British obligations by sales of American stocks seems as far off as ever, flood buyers could undoubtedly bo fcfind, but John Bull is evidently in disposed to surrender more of iiis Am erican investments, which are among tho choicest of his possessions There has been some talk of mobilizing or nillssinlT Itritisll hntllillS of Americans and depositing them hero as collateral for loans, lint even this plan arouses no particular enthusiasm. On this sido of tho Atlantic the most approved plan is, of course, a liritish loan in this mar- ket on conditions likely to attract Am- nrienn capital: but tile terms asked are likely to strike hard at liritish prUlo and urestiae; because England cannot expect to borrow on this side of the Allnntic at rates and terms to which she has been accustomed on the other. Capital naturally commands better rnies nere mini in i-.urup, m-n' t. now nere in iiuinnti vcam, uu.i nimu can buyers would certainly balk at Cie liritish income tax on the bonds. Some o-io of these plans may possibly be adopted nod nn important loan, pos sibly $500,000,000, arranged for at an early date. Others would follow, pro vided tho United States Itself is not drawn into the war. If perchance we become involved in military operations against Germany happily a remote contingency thnt would materially af im i : : I .......... .....I A mn.i. ' fect the plncing of a .Itntisli loan, so far as our immediate financial necessi ties nro concerned, this government cnnlil easily raise for temporary Pur poses $50,0110,000 by sale of Panama III per cent bonds and another $100, 000,- 000 in It per cent notes, which would nrry us iibcig until congress asseiiiiiieu as usual in December, when tin issue, of $:iO0,0OO,(IOO for pri'pnrednesti, or States us t' the conduct or her sun $500,000,000 in case of actual wnr, 'murine warfare. might be added. With the possibility Ambassador Von Hernstorff today of these enormous demands upon tho submitted (0 Secretary of State Lull American money market before us, it cing the substance of Germany's reply is well to move cautiously in nil inune- to i'lendent Wilson's lust, noto to lier tnrv commitments. I lin. nnd it consists of tho acceptance At tins writing the outlook or our relations witn Germany is decidedly more encouraging, smco neniiiuiy through her representatives has stated that she would endeavor to satisfy our demands when convinced that she is wronif. The hope, however, that Ger many will modify her methods of sub marine warfare to suit our ideals should not lend us into uuwisci confidence. While it is to be devoutly hoped that President Wilson's demands will be sat isfied, it is simply common prudence to keen ill mind the cnnsecpieiicos if they are not. As to tho war itself, there are no dependable peace signs yet in sight, notwithstanding the peace talk that occasionally comes to the sur face. Passion between tho belligerents is too intensely aroused and the issues involved are ton vital to allow set t In - ment before one side or tho other is exhausted. It mav bo that weariness and oven financial embarrassment are making themselves felt, but. of the sheer exhaustion necessary to end the war there is as yet no positive symptoms anywhere, unless it be in Turkey, which has been the "Sick Man of l'.u-( rope" for generation. ' Somo idea of tho increase in business' activity can be obtained from a com- j parison of bank clearings with a year ago. The total clearings at principal cities for the first three weeks of Aug-; list was $!I,!I77,000,OHO, against $(!,!II7,-I 000,000 a year ago, an iiicreaso of $:i,- ;i0:i,00O,000. Jnclmleil ill these loiais aro clearings at New York, amounting' to $5,005,000,000, against $U,7 15,000, 000 last year, an increase of $,Si),00o, 000. The great increase in New Yrk's clearings is chiefly due to tno excep tional outburst of activity on the stock exchange, which was closed a year ago. There has been a sharp revival of speculation, amounting to a boom in the war group, and the transactions since January 1 arc more than double those of a year ago. At tho same time, there has been a steady expansion of legitimate business throughout the country, as demonstrated by an increase of Ull per cent in clearing during tne second week of August in tho Middle Stntes, of 24 per cent in the New Eng land States, 10 per cent In the Middle WVst, 8 per cent In tho Pacific, Stutes, 10 per cent in other Western States and 4 per cent in the Southern States. Re ports from 135 cities in the middle of August showed an increase of nearly 44 per cent, than which no better evi dence of trade improvement could be j found, even after eliminating specula-1 tive transactions. Tho business outlook continues siitis-' factory, the only cloud being our dit'fi- adjusted, as now seems probable, we ma)- look for good business during the balance of the year. Tno agricultural ; districts will teel the lienefit ot huge crops and fair prices. Tho steel indus try shows increasing activity at ad vanciug prices for reasons well under- stfl; and our railroads must soon re flect the changes for the better in larger gross earnings. Talk of an ex tra session of congress should bo dis couraged, because it is absolutely un necessary. The executive department of the government under President Wil- son's leadership is abundantly able to!, meet almost any situation liKelv to tie- velop between now and December. Of eenrse. only congress can declare war: and peace is more likely to be preserv ed when congress, which is only a legis lative and not nn administrative body, is not in session. On the stock ex change business continues to show feverish activity, speculation being most pronounced in the industrials ben efiting by war orders. The market, however, exhibits a broadening ten dency, and there is more disposition to operate in the better class of industrials mid railroad shares, especially those which will benefit from trade improve incut. The technical situation of the market 'ma been somewhat improved by temporary setbacks which acted as a test of values and brought in a new influx of buyers. Unavoidably the wnr remains the controlling factor in the market, which must be expected to fliictuuto sharply in either direction, according as the day's news is regard, ed favorable or unfavorable.
