that there are many who are not now
residents of Salem, but who have been,
who have a warm spot in their hearts
for their old home and so people of
this type, who are now residents of
Portland will give a "Salem" celebra
tion and picnic at "The . Oaks" in
Portland Sunday, at which time all for
mer residents are expected to show up.
Many Salem people are planning to at
tend, and all Salem people are welcome.

Survey Will Be Under Direc
tion of Salem's Fire
Chief Hutton
The state fire marshal department
begins today an inspection of buildings
for the purpose of ascertaining if any
fire hazards exist. This survey will be
under the direction of Chief Hutton of
the Salem tire department who is the
city fire marshal, and when it is com
pleted a report will be made to the fire
prevention committee appointed by the
mayor of which William McGilchrist Is
chairman and William Kvans secretary.
This entire survey will be at no ex
pense to the city, but in a measure will
be of nreat value to those who are in
terested in eliminating such hazards in
their building that nre now unknown.
At the meeting last night Chief Dep
uty jay Stevens of the state depart
ment gave an interesting talk with
sterooptican views showing such haz
ardous conditions found during the ore
liminary survey made in Portland while
he was fire marshal of that eity, and
he has also suggested tht where these
conditions nre found in this city that
pictures De laKen in order that they
can he shown to the fire prevention
committee appointed by the mayor.
One important move that the fire
prevention committee decided upon was
the recommendation of teaching fire
prevention in schools. Mrs. W. E. Kirk
and Mrs. E. E. Fisher, members of this
committee, will no doubt take a great
interest in effecting this movement be
fore the schools and women clubs:
which clubs are greatly interested in
the safety of children.

ers for more guns and that orders have
been given by German commanders for
a curtailment in the expenditure of
shells wherever possible.
Captured cartridge shell cases are of
steel now. Apparently lack of brass
and copper has made the enemy try
this metal for ammunition cases for"
field guns and howitzers. Steel cart
ridges are also being issued to soldiers
now. Attempts have been made to
make these steel cases available for
use in machine guns, but up to the
present they persist in a tendency to
burst and jam the guns.
Captured automobiles from the Ger
man lines show construction almost
without brass or copper. Motor lorries
show fabric and wooden tires instead
of rubber.
Estimates from prisoners give about
lo per cent of the present German
fighting infantry made up pf men 21
and 22 years old. From 12 to 15 per
cent are men averaging 20. Lads of
19 are now being brought to the front
iu large numbers and about five or 10
per cenj of the fighting infantry ' is
made up oi these youngsters. Uerman
prisoners say home depots are now fill
ing up with 15 year old youths and even
bows of 17 are undergoing examination
preparatory to conscription.
German Attacks Persistent.
Pans, July 6. Germany still con
tinued her offensive against the French
lines today, but there were no massed
infantry attacks after the repulse in
flicted early in the week. The war of
fice statement today detailed the Ger
man activity as mostly by artillery fire.
"Between the Aisne ana .uamieue
there was severe artillery firing and en
emy raids failed," the statement "id.
"In Champagne, notably around Monts
Casque and Teton, there w as violent ar
tillerying. West of Cornillet and south
west of Tahure an enemy attack was
easily reoulscd.
"On the left bank of the Mouse
northwest of Hill 304 we destructively
cannonaded enemy organizations."

senate convened today recommended
the prohibition of all spirits, beers and
wines. He introduced an amendment
that would kill them all.
Robinson, opening the plea for beer
and wines, after offering a proposition
to forbid spirits only,, said:
"My substituto for the committee
amendment conforms in letter and spir
it to the compromise suggested by the-
presiaent ami agreed to Uy the auti-Sa-loon
To Relieve resident
"In the next place the committee
provision is not only subject to criti
cism because it expressly imposes upon
me cnier executive amies which are
legislative iu their nature, but it also
is objectional to senators on the other
side of the chamber because they claim
it confers a great political power and
influence upon the executive. It is urg
ed that the existence of authority of
the president to confiscate hundreds of
millions of dollars""' worth of proporty
through the activities of agents upon
whose judgment and conduct he must
necessarily depend is unprecedented
and unreasonable. Expressing no ap
proval of hig argument, 1 mention it
merely to emphasize the fact that un
less the congress determines this ques
tion for itself the passage of the food
control bill will probably be indefinite
ly delayed."
Roasts Wilson
Senator Vardaman, Mississippi,contin
uing the argument against tho liquor
triumvirate, spoke scathingly of Presi
dent Wilson's stand in behalf of beer
and wines.
"May 1 not express regret," he said,
' ' that the president did not employ his
virile and sarcastic tongue in holding
up to the world the little bunch of wil
ful proponents of liquor, for scathing
rebuke because they were holding up
the food bill, instead of calling upon
the friends of temperance." "!
Senator Sterling, South Dakota.added
his voice to counsel against beers and
wines as well as spirits.
They talk of economic unrest if we
do away with, all intoxicants, "Sterling
declared, "but 1 for one, believe a
bread riot is more to bo dreaded than
beer riots. If it hadn't been for liquor
there w'ould not have been the disgrace
ful scenes in Easts St) Louis, 111. In
states where there is now prohibition,
crime has diminished, labor has improv
ed and industries have prospered."

After three weeks of wordy battle,
the case is expected to go to the jury
late today. A verdict may come before
sundown. '
There is no question as to the fate of

Two Vessels Report Presense
of Submarine Near
Chesapeake Bay
Washington, July 6 That an Ameri
can navy vessel had sighted what was
apparently the periscope of a submarine
close to Hampton Roads was reported
to the navy department today.
Other ships at once took up the
search for the submarine and Secretary
uameis ordered that the most thorough
investigation proceed.
If the object seen was a periscope, it
wsb not that of an American submarine,
according to intimations at the depart
ment, though no statement was made as
to whether our undersea boats were op
erating in that vicinity.
The official report followed, press re
ports last night which said two incom
ing ships sighted a periseope five miles
off Fortress Monroe in the bay, Daniels
uia not make clear the exact location
and, while he left the impression that
it was "close" to the roads, it was
believed the report said in fact the
periscope was sighted within Chesa
peake bay.
The report had added significance
from the fact that German U-boats are
known to be operating farther from
their home bases than previously, while
unofficial reports indicate that Ger
many is turning out submarines of larg
er size and cruising radius than ever
before. -
