Hold Up Navy Funeral
Baker, Or., Oct. 8. Two members of
the stato military police narrowly es
caped rough treatment at the hands
of angered Grant county residents,
who resented their action in halting
cars i" funeral procession to search
for liquor, according to report.
At the funeral services held recently
for Ensign Tracy, of the V. 8. navy,
there was a large attendance, and as
the cortege was driving from Canyon
City to the cemetery 30 or more cars
were halted by the police who, how
ever, found bo liquor.
Later an indignation meeting was
held and a posse organized to deal
with the two officers, but they could
not be found.
1918. An onen letter to Bishon Mat-
thew Simpson Hughes
Dear Bishop: Four weeks ago a public
letter addressed to you charged the
Sunday newspaper with being an abom
inable nuisance, and the republican
party with being "an lypoeritical, un
Godly old liquor fcarty, over forty
years behind the times, ruled by li
quor and tobaceo." I boldly renew
both charges. To me these seem to be
vital and irrepressible issues of vast
and immediate importance. Are you a
doubterf Respectfully, Wm. N. Taft.

The Spanish influenza has not made
its appearance as yet in Salem. Dr.
O. B. Miles, city health officer said
this morning, although the city stands a
fair chance of having several cases as
it has appeared in Portland and seems
to be traveling this way.
There may be a few cases of bad
colds, Dr. Miles said, but no. cases of
the genuine influenza have been re

of cases had developed at the Salem
Indian School at Chemawa, the super
intendent this morning said that the
report was untruo. That with 600 m at

Early Christmas shopping will be the i
slogan of the business men of Salem !
and to induce early shopping, it wasji
agreed that holiday goods should bell
placed an display at once and that if
the merchants of Salem should begin It
advertising mristmas1 tfenngs.
This was definitely decided as the:
policy of the Business Men's league

Commercial Club. It was announced that

,as an order from the National Council
of Defense. All eards to soldiers

As to the proposition whether the
merchants wished the Business Men's
league to survive, there was but one
opinion and that was to the effect
that under no circumstances should the
organization be dropped. It developed
that many of the rating cards had been
allowed to lapse and that for the past
two or three months, no attention had

There seemed to be the opinion that
some one was negligent in not having
the affairs of the league attended to.
To remedy these conditions the direc
tor, C. S. Hamilton and his committee
Hill take up the proposition of placing
a competent person in charge of the
league's records and one who will at
