Margaret Mason Writes of
Gotham Fads and Fashions
By Margaret Mason.
Small boys all know that tanning
Makes persona quite some smart;
And that's a fact that summer girls
Will have to take to heart,
Because all . dyes grow scarcer
Since first, tho war began.
And for those dying to be smart
There's nothing left but tan. '.
New York, Feb. 5. Positively the
only way you can go in for color ef
fects this coming Spring and Summer
is to turn green with envy, have a yel
low streak, a fit of blues or red your
self up to be the pink of neatness.
They do say that all is fair in love and
war but it's been mighty hard for
some of U9 to be fuir urith the recent
embargo on peroxide. Fortunately that
has just been lifted nnd hearts and
heads are once moro light.
The outlook for other dyestuffs is
very dark. The weather man has often
predicted a white winter for us but
now the Fashion man promises us a
white summer whito with a large
dash of tan by way of variety.
By way of getting the greatest
amount of variety out of tan you can
call it biege, ecru, string biscuit, sand
and putty as it's intensity of tanncss
wanes or waxes.
Fortunately we already have such
charming tan summer materials in
natural pongee shantung and rajah
silks, to say nothing of natural linens,
that to be thus limited for our Spring

Germany Is Hopeful. I
Berlin, Feb. o. Germany forsees no
immediate crisis in relations with tho
Tinted Stales over the Lusitania tor-!
Despite pessimistic reports from Eng-j
lifh sources regarding the American at-:
titude, officials here scoffed today at
tho possibility that fiurmany's refusal'
fo disavow the incident would bring'
the affair to an immediate and grave
head. Indeed, they believed that fur-i
ther informal exchanges are certain to!
occur before Germany frames a formal'
answer to tho last American note in
tho case. Inasmuch as the latest in
struction sent to Ambassador Von I
llerustort'f call for an answer from the
American stato department, it is re-!
yarded probable that the two nations
will air their views anew, whether the;
1 nited States approves or disapproves
of the German proposals.'
In its realization that the situation
has grown moro serious, and in its dis
' riission of a possible break the pub
lic recalls utterances of the president
on his preparedness tour, widely print-j
ed here, which are interpreted as a
warning to Grninnv. that America in-
tends to (leal firmly in tho liiisitnnin,
situation. On the other hand, the pub-
lie does not believe that the United'
States will force a break in diplomatic
relations because of Germany's refusal!
to use a specific, expression of disa-1
If a deadlock is reached, it is be-j
lieved certain that a break could be
averted by referring the disavowal de-i
maud to arbitration. In fact, only the
most pessimistic believe America would i
refuse such a proposal. I

If you remember we were caught in

And so a grey or tan mark will be

that the poor old war is tho only
thing responsible for tho alarming

Ordinance Will Be Introduced
at Meeting of Council
An ordinance to prohibit the cutting
of pavement laid upon any street or
alley of the city of Salem, for tho
purpose of laying gas or water mains,
or any class of under ground conduits,
will be introduced at the next meeting
of the city cc incil, Moudav, February
The ordinance to be introduced also
provides that hereafter all pipes orj
conduits or extensions shall bo laid i
only in the parking lines of any paved
The ordinance rends that it shall be I
unlawful, "to in any manner cut,
break up, deface or molest any pave
ment which may have been heretofore,
or may hereafter be laid in the city
of Salem, for the purpose of laying
new mains or extensions of the sys
tems now installed."
. Provision is also made in the ordi
nance to be introduced that the City
Recorder be instructed to notify the
Salem Water, Light & Power Com
pany and the Portland liailway, Light
& Power Company and any and all
other persons, firms or corporations
owning franchises for the laying of
mains, the intention of the council to
pass and adopt the ordinance at the
meeting to be he'd February 21.
In discussing the proposed ordinance
with the ordinance committee, W. M
Hamilton, division manager, notes the
fact that gas mains have been in
stalled on nearly all the paved streets
of the city, but in many instances,
service pipes have not been run from
tho mains to the houses. All service
companies are required to supply serv
ice to persons desiring the same, who
aro willing to pay tho established
In many parts of the city, due to
the unexpected increase in the amount
of gas required, it is necessary to re
place gas mains and service pipes
and the ordinance if passed, would
prevent the company from making
these necessary improvements.
Referring to the amount of money
now being spent in the city in im
provements, Mr. Hamilton notcti the
fact that during the past year, his
! company has installed 20,438 teet, or
practically f ivo miles of gas mains
land service, at a cost of $d,751.
In addition to spending $!l,ol tor
new' mains and extensions, the com
pany spent ik-L'tyM!) in the city for
operating expences, making a total of'
$:W,(!70 paid out in Salem in 1i)IV
Tho gross receipts from gas customers
were $33,228, or $5,112 less than the
amount paid out. :
While Mr. Hamilton feels that. nil-1
necessary cutting of pavements should .
be eliminated, ho notes that it is neces
sary in order to make improvements
and extensions. It also becomes necos-.
sary at times to repair pipes on ac
count of leakage, as the "continual loss
of gas by leakage to the company
tend to hold up the operating expenses.;
Referring to the necessity of re
ouirltitf on mains on account of leak-
'age, Mr. Hamilton noted the case of a
I leak at Twelfth and Le.e streets, which
was located nnd repaired .lust before'
the supply of gas was exhausted in
that locality. -
As to whether a cut in the pavc-i
nient can be repaired, Mr. Hamilton re
ferred to the fact that a few years
ago the company was obliged to make
a number of cuts in the down town

j vent either the Portland Railway,
i Light & Power Company, or the Salem j
I Water, Light & Power Company from
' laying pipes or mains in any street ul-1
i ready paved, or of replacing mains:
I with' larger pipes, or of connecting!
with houses along paved streets not!

The ordinance also provides a pen-'

ftiim found guilty of cutting, defacing
or destroying any pavement of not

Salem e se" ne cneaPest because our Albany

family came to this Btate in 1S-17 and

Hinkle was the last survivor of triplets,
as her two sisters, Mrs. K. C. Churchill
and Mrs. A. M. Thomas, have been
dead for some time. There were 16

Tho police are of the opinion that
the crime was committed by someone
who was familiar with the premises or
the murder had been carefully planned.
It happened certain rent money was

had always been accustomed to keep
money in the house. The police, how
ever, scout the theory that the crime
was committed by Henry Nelson, an in
sane patient who escaped from the asy
lum about 4 o'clock yesterday. The
asylum physicians say th.it Nelson was
a harmless patient nnd had never
caused nay trouble at the institution
where he has been since December 5 of
last year. Nelson was committed from
Salem but e.une to this city to be
treated at the asylum for a fancied dis
ease. He was told by the asylum doc
tors that they could not take him into
the hospital unless he was regularly
committed and then Nelson hunted up
Judge Hnshey and was voluntarily com
mitted to the asylum. Nelson is still
at large today but efforts are being
made to find him. Nelson is 5 feet, 3
