Injured by Fall
Sheriff Needham was notified short
ly afternoon today that Constable
Jonee of Jefferson had fallen in get
ting out of an auto at Turner this morn
ing and had suffered a fracture of the
skull. Some time this morning a war
rant was issued in Jefferson for the
arrest of several boys who had passed
through the town in an auto, and this
was given to the constable to Bcrve.
The constable wired the sheriff to head
the boys off and the sheriff wired the
constable at Turner to watch out for
them and get them if they reached
that plujce. This the Turner constable
did and phoned Jones to come and get
them. As Jones readied the co-nstablo's
place in Turner he stepped from the
auto before it had fully stopped and
was thrown heavily, sustaining, it is
reported, a fracture of the skull.
The boys were taken back to Jeffer
son by Constable Miles of TurneT, and
word was Bent that the injured man
was being brought to one of the hos
pitals here. Inquiry at these just be
fore press time failed to locate him
at any of them. What the natnro of
the offense for which the boys were ar
rested could not be learned.

Parades In Future
It is Rood bye to street carnivals and
street shows of a similar nature for Sa
lem. At the meeting of the city uncil
this evening an ordinance will be intro
duced by Frank Ward that will ring tho
curtain down on carnivals, merry-go-rounds
and such, and with this council)
men already in favor of such an ordin
ance, it will doubtless be unanimously
The ordinance provides that no street
shows, carnivals, dog shows or anything
of the kind shall be licensed to do busi
ness in thifl city of Salem. This include?
the circus, but as there are no ground?
suitable for a circus within thfl city
limits, the circus -continues to be a pos
sibility for Salem, as they can show
outside the city limits.
However, although the circus may
con), the ordinance will provido that
the city shall be paid a license for the
use of its street for the paredo. For a
one ring circus parade, the license fee
is fixed at $40. The two ring circus for
its parade will be asked to pay $60 and
the big circus with three rings will be
taxed $80 for its parade on the sity
Shows not classed as a circus that
would like to have a street parade will
be asked to pay a license of $30 while
a dog or pony show will pay $25 for the
use of the streets in its paraue.
A similar ordinance would have pass
ed at thP lust meeting of the council
but it prohibited the street paradi. As
the aldermen thought there was noth
ins espocially wrong about a slice t par
ade, the measure was defeated, A nev
ordinance was drawn, by City Attor
ney Macy, prohibiting the carnivals an J
shows of -nil kinds within the city lim
its, but permitting the street parude
upon the payment oi a license iee.
