Mayor Gill Badly
Defeated In Seattle Primary
Seattle, Wash., Feb. 20 The elim
ination of Mayor Hiram C. Gill from
the city election here continued to be
the political wonder of Seattle today.
Yesterday's primaries, which nom
inated two candidates for mayor, left
(rill a poor third. The election will be
held Tuesday, -March 5.
Olo Hanson, real estate man, led the
primaries with 23,148 votes. James E.
Bradford was second with 11,661. Gill
received 8,002 votes. Hanson and
Bradford will be the candidates for
mayor. The balance of the votes cast
were divided among four other can
didates. Gill's elimination followed his recent
disbarment because of alleged solicit-1
ing by the law firm of which he i-s a I
member, of legal business from places j
of shady reputation. Prior to thnt, !
Gill became involved in difficulties
with Major General H. A. Green, com
manding' officer of Camp Lewis, and
as a result, a military ban was placed
on Seattle for several weeks.

Treaty Forced by Arms
Would Not Be Binding
Washington, Feb. 20. Germany's
peace treaty with Kussia, if forced to
signature under tho threat of arm
may not stand in the last reckoning at
the big peace table, borne international
authorities believed today that the al
lies and America will insist that it is
not binding with its grab of the
border lands and its reported indemni
ty in, view of the fact that it would
be sighed by Russia under duress.
With German armies sweeping into
Russia against an uiye-sisting and hope
lessly disorganized people, the Lcnine
Troesky announcement that the Rus
sians would sign the treaty was re
garded here as a step in self protection,
tion. The fact that it would be signed
by a regime not even recognized as a
de facto government will also have
weight in the final determinations-
That the treaty will lull the German
and Austrian people into a happier
mood as to eastern conditions is re
garded l-kely here. Otherwise it means
little, though it would mesai supplies
for Germany, in the course of time.
Germany can scarcely strip the east
line of any more troops for the west
front, it is held here.
Authorities see no hope of a re
organized fighting force in Russia. Her
army, about demobilized, cannot be re
made into a fighting force in any rea

latest picture for Artcraft, at the
Oregon theater next Sunday, Monday

sweet and api?aling character of Stel

figure. One of tho big scenes in the
photoplay Bhows tho terrific beating,
Unity receives from the drink-sodden
woman who has taken her from the or
phan asylum. While Miss Camilla An-
kewich gives a splendid interpretation
c the brutal woman, she is a woman

rector, says that he experienced the
greatest difficulty in getting Miss An-
kewich to boat Miss Pickford in a
realistic manner, and after the scene
was over and lary was rubbing a red

wich burst into tears and declared it
was the hardest thing she had ever

FOR STARCH FACTORY
Pacific Potato Starch Com
pany Makes Proposition to
Marion County Growers
Assurance that a starch factory
would bo established in Salem if tho
farmers of this vicinity would guar-
anteo sufficient acreage to ennblo tho
factory to operate, was given yester
dny by J. T. Griffith, president of the
Pacific Potato Starch company, of
This announcement was mude after
the conference held yesterday after
noon at the Commercial club between
Mr. Griffith and a number of potato
growers of tho valley, called under
tho auspices of tho Marion county po
tato growers' association in conjunc
tion with the Commercial club.
To warrant the establishment of a
factory at this place it will be neces
sary to have a guaranteed acreage of
1000 acres of potatoes. Of the amount;
produced on this acreage the factory i
would require ono third, or approxi-j
mutely the portion of a crop generally
classed as culls. Fifty cents per hun-i
dred would bo guaranteed the growers:
on five year contracts.
Mr. Griffith told tho growers he
would make two propositions to them
and they could tako their choice. The
factory would either pay them 50
cents per hundred for ono third of
their crop, or tako their entire crop
and convert it into starch and by-products,
keeping one third of the cash
proceeds for its own remuneration and
giving the growers two thirds of the
cash proceeds for their share.
The cost of the favtory which would
bo established here would bo $00,000.
Operating at a minimum capacity it
would handle two tons of raw pota
toes per hour. The factory would oper
ate on tho raw product approximately
100 days in tho year, tho balance ot
the tinio being put in on dry products.
Aside from the main item of si arch ex
tracted' from the raw product, the
o produce such by-
ose, grape sugar anil
dextrine. It is estimated that each 100
pounds of product would be eunertei
into about 20 pounds of starch qiul
