Following tho address of Captain A. W. Graham in which 1m ant fiiti. advantages of a municipal dock for tho tuy, u committee was appointed con sisting of Paul Wallace, U. G. Holt and Dan J. Frav to wait on th,. ,.itv- .,,. cil with the suggestion that $5,000 be uiciuucii in tne Dudget for 1917. This sum Captain Graham said would build a dock of sufficient size for the river business of Salem. Before the comiiiittpn nrriv.i.1 at n.. city hall, the council had already pass ed the budget for 1917 and as a con sequence, there will be no $5,000 a- vaiiauie ior tne construction of a city dock with city money at least not iu 1917. A. W. Graham of Oregon City was introduced by President Albert' as a graduate deck hand, captain, manager and everything else that might be in cluded in tho management of a boat iino, tho Oregon City Transportation company. Before eottinir an niiiirni.rinli'ni. (mm congress for tho deepening of the riv- r, mr. urnnam said it was necessarv 'o show there was already a thriving business on the river and that the more tonnage could be shown, the bet ter were tho chances of getting money from congress. Whilo it might be of advantage to deepen tne river, Mr. Graham said tho first thin;; was to get an appropriation "or .he re-construction of part of the locks nt Oregon City, as at tho time of vear when there was tho greatest river raffie, there was only one foot and n no inches of water at the lower lock. !Ie claimed there had been a blunder nade in tho construction of tho locks nd that engineers had estimated that S0,000 would be necossary to remedy he mistake. To increase river traffic in general. Mr. Graham said more docks were need ed up nnd down the river, owned by 'ho different localities. From Portland '0 Eutfene. a distnnnn nf 171 min. there was but two municipal docks at puttcviiie and Wheatland. He believe it was better for a town to own ;i own doeitn. "In Sniem, you nave n rotten antii mated old dock," said Mr. Graham, 'and this naturally hampers business. The city should own n good modern dock. It could be an open dock or we would lease it." The best place for a municipal dock would be at what is known as the old dock location, between State and Court streets. The object in building docks along the river not only in Salem but nt oth er points was to convince the govern ment that there was sufficient tonnage along the river to justify an appropri ation and if anything was to be done iu tho Salem dock line, now was tho time as tho lease of the Oregon Transporta tion company for the present dock would expire within a yoar. - While Mr. Graham estimated that a dock could bo built for $5,000, Chns. K. Spaulding and others present were of the opinion that tho total cost would probably be nearer $12,00 or $15,000. President Albert suggested that as a United States senator would be in town next week and also a congressman, tho needs of the Willamette river might be brought to their attention. I. Greeubaum reported that the sub ject of street lights had been presented to the city council and that he hoped for favorablo action. F. O. Deckebach, as chairman of a committee on river improvement said that before presenting the matter of an appropriation for deepening the river, the rivers and harbor committee must be shown there already was a considerable tonnage on the river and that a municipal dock was one of the things needed. As for terminal rates, he thought these could be secured if it could be shown there was an open chan nel from Salem all year. Geo. F. Rodgcrs asked that his com mittee be empowered to continue nn educational campaign showing that Sa lem was facing an industrial crisis and that the city was threatened with the loss of several of its manufacturing en terprises.

Yoder (United Press staff correspondent) Aboard Roosevelt's Train, St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 19. With tho Kentucky mountain district and its eventful day I behind him, Colonel Roosevelt is speed ing across Missouri nnd Kansas today to the scenes of his "short grass' range riding days. While tho colonel ostensibly is out to mnko votes for Republican "('undidute Hughes, he does not intend to spend nil his time playing politics whilo in Phoe l nix, Ariz., and Albuquerque, N. M., where he speaks Saturday and Monday,' respectively, lie is looking forward to i meeting some of his old plniu pals. And if the colonel keeps nil the dates with gun fighting cowboys who knew' him in the old ranch days who havej wired him to be sure and visit tliein.j this trip wont end when its expected to. Jlierc are two men, however, who have wired Roosevelt they will meet him eithur nt Phoenix or Albuquerque. One is Seth Bullock, who used to sit be hind tho colonel at political meetings! with a pair ot loaded Colls in his hands "to keep the audience attentive." The other is Jim Davis, whose left ear "wus bit off by a gentleman in an argument. " Is Badly Disgruntled Roosevelt admittedly is glad to get out west. It has been four years since ho did any western traveling. Then, too, bis day yesterday was not all beer and skittles. Besides the wrecked freight train ahead of his special, which delayed him two lioitrs, the engine pulling his car broke down six times. The last time was at Livingston. There was a crowd at the station calling for him. HCwas greeted with shouts of " Woodrow Wilson! Woodrow Wilson" as he started to speak. Finally the heckling plainly nettled the colonel and unable to get well started, he shouted at the men, "that's right; shout for Woodrow Wilson tf you're too proud to fight nnd if the Lusitonia sinking doesn't make your blood corpuscles shout," Siid he went inside to speak no more until he reached Louisville for his first big address of the trip. Corbin Welcomes Hint Excepting Louisville, Roosevelt got his best reception at Corbin. Despite a downpour several thousand mountain folk, who could get a job any time suping as a mob in a Belascoesque play, all but tore' Roosevelt 's arm from his shoulder joints shaking hands with him.

Indors ing in tho most emphatic language Pres ident Wilaon's foreign policy and ap plauding his courage and patriotism, tho Farmers' National congress of tho United States, in its thirty sixth annual session, fast night telegraphed hearty congratulations to the president, ex pressing tho profound gratitude and ap preciation of this important body for the successful efforts of tho president in "keeping tho nntioii honorably at peace during one of the most trying periods of its history." The organization also expresses ap precintion of the administration's con structive nnd effective legislation en acted for the benefit of the farmers of America.

Some had left their mountain fastnesses for the first time in three or four years and had walked or ridden horseback or miiln back, mostly mules, from ten to forty miles "to see Teddy." One grizzled old man, who was ob viously a stranger to 1110 civilization, persistently yelled, "Where's Teddy; 1 want to see Teddy," until finally Roosevelt interrupted his speech to say "well, my friend, taue a look. I'm Teddy." And then the old chap refus ed to let the colonel continue his speech until he had gripped the colon el's hund. The Louisville nffuir was something like Fourth of July used to be before safety first propaganda dumpened gun powder. There was enough explosive wasted in red fire, sky rockets, roinau candles nnd noisy bombs to huve furn ished tho allies with powder for a thrcchour-drum fire boinbnrdincnt. But for all the fireworks there were num erous very numerous Wilson rooters at Phoenix Hill auditorium, where the col onel sKiko to 4,000. They started heckl ing from the beginining and only quiet ed when he pleaded for "a square deal and ns much of a monologue as possi ble." Points to Himself Persistent heckling Inter in his speech brought the retort, "I'm coming back to' you, to give you a chance to cheer when I tell you nbout how women were ravaged and American men mur dered during tho Wilson administration because there were men like you in charge at Washington." "Eat 'em up, Teddy," several yell ed and he answered, "I will if he gives me half a chance." in his speech ut Louisville Roosevelt scored the Adomson bill as "bun combe," and contrasted its passage with the action he took when the Louis ville and Nashville, road threatened to reduce wages when he was president of the United States. "I got the low from my attorney general," said Roosevelt, "and told the Louisville and Nashville folk I 'd act under the newly enacted Krdinan law. The iouisville and Nashville came around and didn't reduce wages." Tho case just mentioned was brought to Roosevelt's attention today by H. II. Seavy, a locomotivie engineer, who shone in the Corbin spotlight as the colonel's introducer there.
