. mas of all Christmases that have been. Let us all get behind the ("Old Town") and

CLAIM THAT LEWIS IS
SEEKING LIME LIGHT
As a means of gotting quickly in '
1! l-l.i. It l-.l.-, I
iu umt jigui, iruiu a political view
point, it is said that D. O. kcwis, Of

and in full chargo of the automobile
Mr. Vick said that he would receive
100 tractors each month for distribu
tion in Oregon. Ho noted that tlfe Ford
factory was fast taking out machinery
for making of government munitions
and waa installing automobile machin
ery. The plant is making only 800 cars
a day but by next Juno it was thought
tho plant would bo running at its ca
pacity of 3500 cars a any.
Ford automobiles will be no cheaper
tihe coming year. That much was as
sured the agents. Materials 'and labor
aro both high and it appears there was
no thought of reducing prices.
Influenza is most severo in the cen
tral states. Mr. Vick found several
cities whero tho barber shops were all
closed and tho hanks running with al
most no help. In southern Wisconsin
tho flu was so bad that several trips
to visit plants had to be abandoned.
land, has been most successful. Mr.
Lewis is representative from-Multnomah
county, and to let people know
that he iatends to bo seen and heard
at the next session of the legislature,
has picked out tho expenditure of $5000
for the memorial building at Cham
poeg. Anything of a patriotic nature natur
ally ntiructs attention nnd the same
may bo said of somethinir historical.
Hence when Mr. Lewis claims that the
$5000 was mis-spent on tho memorial
buildin, tho statement attracts atten
tion. Judge P. H. D'Arcy, one of tho mem
bers of tho committee in chargo of
erecting tho building, said yesterday
that after the bill was passed mater
ials and- labor went up from 50 to 100
per cent and it was difficult to got
bids on the work because it was most
inconvenient to tuko mateiials from
.N'i'wberg to Chnmpoeg. Part had to be
taken up by boat and then hauled to
Chanipocg. There was received three
bids for tho first time the contract
was offered and only one the second
Judge D'Arcy feels that on account
of the climbing cost-of materials and
tho difficulty of having work done at
Chanipocg, tho building does not sho'w
up as it would say in a city with rail
ro:id connections and erected before
building materials nnd labor doubled
in price. Il'o says he and Mr. Jlimes
did tho best they could under tho cir
cumstances and- will bo ready to pre
sent their ido"of tho situation aiiy timo
tho legislators should ask. Judge D'
Arcy is of tho opinion that Mr. Lewis
is attempting to bo sensational and
picked out the memorial building at
Chanipocg to help him along.
