Indigestion. Onepackage
proves it 25c at all druggists.
Washington, July 20. The possibility
o'f a trade war with England over her
blacklist policy was deprecated by
many officials here today. - .
They said for one thing that the Bry
an arbitration treaty might prevent the
United States from taking any retalia
tory measures, before a year. By that
time the necessity for the blacklist
very likely will have ceased.
Another difficulty which the govern
ment will encounter Sb that of proving
that steamship lines are violating the
inter-state commerce commission act in
refusing freight of blacklisted firms. In
the past the steamship companies al
ways bavo refused to lay complaint
against the British authorities and have
claimed there was so much cargo
they were juBttified in not taking that
of a doubtful nature.
The state department today inform
ally requested Great Britain embassy
for further information on the blacklist
ing of American firms. This action was
taken following the embassy's notifica
tion that the list of blacklisted firms
was correct. The department haB not
received the official list.

Lee Issues Warning
About Public Schools
"We are at a crisis in regard to the
education of our children," said A. A.
Lee at the meeting of the Commercial
club last evening. "Salem should pay
more attention to school affairs and to
the election of its school board, as for
the next five years, what the board
does will have its effect on Salem chil
dren for the next generation, especial
ly as to what school buildings are to
be erected and how."
"Right now we are crowding our
children into temporary houses in or
der to accommodate pupils from outside
districts. If these did not come in, we
would not have to build. As it is, we
will have to build, and the erection of a
new school building is a big proposi
tion. The school board of the next few-
years will erect the buildings your
The Civic department of the Com

friends of a public bathing beach are
requested to gather on the beach to
morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock and as
sist in the general clean up. A few
spades, hoes rakes and other garden
utencils will be appreciated. While
the men are doing the heavy work,
such as raking up brushwood, the pa
triotic women of the city will be there
to encourage them with coffee fur

Last night,' at the Commercial club,
Fred E. Mangig who has been active in
the work, said that for children, all the
advantages of the beach would be free
and that meant any one under 15 years
of age.
For the older folks, five cents will
be the regular fee for using the
grounds or beach and that a fee of
five cents more will provide for the
checking of clothes or valuables.
' The opening day will be next week,
when the beach will be lighted and en
tertainment given in the way of swim
ming races, canoe contests and other
features not yet-decided on.
The committees having in charge the
beach are as follows:

club: Dr. W. H, Bvrd, chairman; Ivan
G. McDaniel, H. O." White and Fred E.

years. ' '
Mr. Lee was not present at the Com
mercial club to make an address on
school matters, but as the proposition
had been brought up, he was asked to
express a few opinions, which he did
very reluctantly."
Benjamiun Brick, as director of the
publicity, . tourist and convention de
partment of the Commercial club, has
been receiving congratulations today
on his financial report for the Cherry
fair, given to the Commercial club at
the monthly meeting last night. The
club had voted the sum or uu tor tne
fair and of this amount, Mr. Brick
found it necessary to use only $239.42.
Tiie Cherry lair actually cost $1159.11,
but as the receipts from the queen con
test was $024.44, and from tne dance
$210.25, these with other items of re
ceipts brought the total to $919.69.
By using VUV.-tz or tne lommerciai
club aprpopriation of $500, accounts
were balanced. In other words, Mr.
Brick feels that he has saved the club

Verdict Rendered
Against Insurance Co.
' A verdict for the plaintiff in full of
the amount of the insurance policy j
was returned in Department No. 1 of '
the circuit court this afternoon in the
case of Mary I. Mercer vs. the Ger
niania Fire nsurance company.
This case, which was called for hear
ing yesterday afternoon, contains
within it the story of a store and a
stock of goods at Macleay, a fire insur
ance policy and a divorce. It was set
forth -in the complaint that in April,
1913, A. G. Mercer took out a policy
for $2,700 with the defendant company.
The property was destroyed by fire in
January of this year, and the insurance
company has refused to pay the amount
of the policy to the plaintiff on the
grounds that her right to it was not

"Can a man be a good soldier and do
good work if he's wondering whether
his family at home has enough to eatf "
I asked General Funston, after leaving
the jitney and making my way to his
hot office.
The general, whose perspiring head
was leaving patches of dampness on
the leather back of the huge chair in
which he sat, leaned forward saying
earnestly: "Of course not. I permit
ted 14 men to return home yesterday
because their--dependents were suffer
ing and I have so many requests for re
lief on like grounds that it will prove
necessary to release several thousand
within the next few weeks."
These men are given three and a half
cents mileage homeward. Money which
has been spent in bringing them to the
border, feeding them and outfitting
them and then a'ftcr two weeks send
ing them back home, isn't wasted. It is
our payment for the lesson that in onr
new army plan we must provide well
for the care of soldiers' families if we
are going to insist on taking men away
from their families into the army.
"What about my family!" is the
biggest question in all militia camps
