E. Cooke Patton, proprietor of Pat
ton's Post Card Hall, ami one of Sa
lem's' most distinguished citizens, is
the pioneer entertainer of the Capital

Trouble tor Brokers i May Solve Mystery
San Francisco, Feb. 1. The first
day of the shipper's declaration act
was ushered in today with complica
tions and protests galore.
Tho act culls tor the itemization of
cargoes on a special blank. Hut only
1,0011 of these blanks xvere sent by
the government to San Francisco. Four
thousand blanks last oulv about one
day these busy times and four broker
age concerns bought up the lot at one
half cent, each within a few hours
This left scores of brokers without
the necessary blanks. They marched
upon J. ). Davis, collector of port,
with heated protest and demanded
that there be u, delay in putting the
law into effect. Davis is in a quand
ary, it xxill probably be several days
before any more can come from Wash

brokers have manifests ready. The
purpose of the a't is to have u tabu
