Commercial Club To
Ask Council For Sewer
i -
A recommendation from tho Commer
cial club regarding the sewer to be ex
tended on Thirteenth street will be pre
sented to the city council this evening.
Tho communication recommends that a
sower be constructed on Thirteenth
street to extend to Twenty-fifth street
to what is known as the slaughter house
district. The distance is about one mile
and a half ami the cost of construction
estimated to be about $-1,000.
Should this sewer bo constructed
Steusloff Bros, agree to build an abat
toir at a cost of uot less than $20,000.
A modern abattoir would make Salem
an independent market for hogs and
cattle raised in the Willamette valley.
Albany has just completed an abut
ter at a cost of $10,500 and several oth
er cities expect to build. An abattoir
of the size proposed for Salem, would
employ at nil times 10 skilled men. The
recommendation will probably be refer
red to the committee on sewers, Alder
man Hudelson, Unruh nnd Millelt, and
bo disposed of at another meeting. The
communication is signed by A. Iluckes1
tein, 8. B. Elliott, C. M. Eppley, W. A.
Marshall and Theodore Roth.

At Opening of Parliament To
day Swedish King Attacks
British Policy
Stockholm, Jan. 17. In a speech
from the throne at the opening nf par
liament today, King Gustav delivered
what many regarded as a warning to
England agninBt further acts against
Swedish commerce.
Tho king called attention to the al
leged "usurpation of power" by the
belligerents. While he did not detail
any of the usurpations, the remark was
regarded as significant in view of re
ports that England is about to blockade
Germany and cut off the trade between
Germany nnd Sweden.
"Belligerents," he said, "have neg
lected in an ever increasing decree the
written international laws for the pro
tection for neutrals and for limiting
violence in war. Sweden more than
once has been obliged t' intervene
against the attempts to put her indus
trial and commercial life under the
usurped control of another power."
His announcement was greeted with
C. P. Stewart, t'nited Frefs staff cor
respondent, recently declared that
Sweden would join Germany if she
were convinced that the allies might
otherwiso win.

tities for produce of the farm, and sec
ond, to secure for Woodburn its share

tho association will sell hogs, veal, beef,
poultry nnd eggs for the farmers, but
Inter expects to so extend its operations
whereby a farmer may secure a full
market price for anything ha may bring
to town.

Sacramento, Cal., Ju. 17. To permit
further investigation of tho eases of
Charles Oxnum and Glenn Witt, young
men who were sentenced to bo hanged
next Friday, Uovemor Johnson today
granted them reprieves. No date was
set for tho termination of tho re
prieves Oxnum and Witt were sentenced to
death I'or the murder of William Alex
ander, a wealthy Lou Anwles man. The
prison hoard recommended clemency
saying Oxnam has the mentality of a
child of S and that Witt, a boy, was
pulled into tho plot by Oxnum.
The governor requested Dr. F. W.
Hatch, superintendent of tho state
lunacy commission and four other phy
sicians to examine Oxnum anil follow
ing their report tho reprieves were
In ordering the investigation the
governor mado this statement:
"What I am seeking is to nsccrtain
whether Oxnam is in such a mental
condition as renders liim responsible to
the law. I do not wish to draw linn
spun distinctions of intellectual inca
pacity, nor theoietically to determine
the difference that may exist between
the normal or abnormal or subnormal;
but broadly, should Oxnum suffer the
penalty of his crimo, or should the hu
mane rule of the law that those men
tally irresponsible shall not bo exe
cuted require me in this case to com
mute tho sentence ."'
Dr. Hatch in his report said: "While
we are agreed that Oxnam was not in
sane at tho time of the crime wo be
lieve that he hnd not reached that
period of mental development that
would enable him to feci tho differ
ence between right and wrong as to
the act and bo guided by it. Oxnam, 's
fatiier, a minister, was undoubtedly a
degenerate and transmitted to his son
an inferiority of mind that has crippled
him in his struggle for existence."
The doctors, recommend commutation
of sentence.
The governor made no statement to
day concerning tho cases of Kito liar

to be hanged r'riday at Folsoni.
