ling to a complaint filed tod.iy at the
j office of the public service commission
against the Salem Water, Light & Pow

assert that tiiey put on meters and that
the charges are excessive and for irri
gation purposes are prohibitive and that
the charges as based upon the meter
measurement are more than the same
amount under a f 1 it rate.
Again the water users complain that
the meter rate is rot subject to a HI
per cent discount which is allowed un

of the water users who are the nlain-

upon Salem lleiyuts and it is stated
that the pressure in that vicinity jjy)ft

mand for wafer as upon the weekly
Th public service commission will
m.'.ke a full investigation of the matter
and ascertain whether or not the char
acter of the soil or its hillside location
is the cause for the excessive meter
charges. The complaint asks for an in

equitable adjustment of the rates.

shouted on the streets. Citizens of

shouted always ,v Tinted States troop

across tho line and hunt down this man,
American soldiers sing his praises
daily. When the chase comes thev
will hunt down "I'ancho" with the
same energy of General Pershing's sol
diers, and will take just as much
glory in making the end of the bandit
raider as bloody as possible, ns the

Yet of all the Mexican warriors and
revolutionists, Villa is held highest in
tho esteem of the troopers nt the in
ternational boundary line. Most of the
troopers will admit' that, it is not until
after they have "canteened-up a bit"
that, they shout "Viva Villa." They
say that the border is no place for
army men to camp five years in a
climate where every summer day means
blistering heat, and winter days mean
hurricanes of suffocating dust clouds.
(With nothing more aluring than a
frontier movie show, no green trees,
nothing but the hum-drum of camp life
every day year after year, troopers
have been dreaming of the man who
would finally provoke war and afford
them a change.

Vnshington, Mur. "3 The submarine
issue with its grave possibilities again
confronts the government.
For the moment the Sussex and Eng
lishman cases today overshadowed the
Mexican situation. Taken with the at
tacks against the Patrin and the Tubnii
tia, officials believed today' reports
indicated the central powers had pos
sibly embarked on a submarine cam
paign similar o the one a year ago
which brought the I'nited Suites so
close to a break with them.
Officials made no attempt to hide
shock which the news produced. The
sinking of the Englishman, ivith four
Americans missing, appeared to be the
most serious incident out there yns also
much anxiety about the disabling of the
Sussex, Secretary Lansing cabled for
all tho facts. Should they prove that
the Sussex was torpedoed it was stated
authoriatively the administration would
regnrd ns hollow and empty the centrul
powers' promises nnd assurances,
fiduvits from survivors of the Sussex
disaster should reach the state depart
