In. these, words,. Count Michael Kara-,

fho United -Press today what he be
lieves should be accomplished at the

ed the fact that he it not socialistic

fleclared that he is absolutely convinc
ed that peace must tie soeinl' and eco
nomic as well as political. He strong

Knid the world must stick to Wilsoa's
11 principles or there would bo anoth
sr war within a few years.
Is Outstanding Figure
Karolyi, a man of noble birth, is
easily theutstanding figure in Hun

can weld the millions of hU people in

at present are not enough to put down
tho movement immediately but. I de
pend strongly upon President Irigoyen
who approves my action.

"I was formerly chief of police B-nd
I know how to cope with the situation.-.
I had no intention and was very sorry
to be instrumental in killing innocents.
Last night's casualties included chil

in front of them. -;', ' '
"A railway strike will complicate
the situation gud "render it much more

. Strike Spreads.
The general strike is spreading into
the interior, hut no new fightyig-hr,s
developed in Buenos Aires this morning
and the streets were practically desert

sons were killed and scores woundd in
last night's rioting.
Although President Irigoyen has sail
ho will not declare martial law, such a
state practically exists now Dellepianes
action is not yet regarded as antagon

disapproves, ho is 'likely to tako some
counter action that will complicate the
situation and render it ' more serious

The packing company will have the
advantage not only of thc years of ex
perience of Stcusloff Bros, and Curtis
B. Cross in the meat market nr.d pack
ing business, but also in havitij thc
very latest packing hoi:se equipment
and machinery that is manufactured
for the business.
A moilern tafeteria will be installed
at tho plant in order that the employes
mny 'be served with hot dinners at
actual cost. There will 'also be a aiin
dry in connection in order that all out

quired by government inspection. All
employes will work in white.
Tha packing plant will be prepared
to consumo all hogs raised within a ra
dius of 30 miles from Salem. It will
establish a hog market here that will
pay top prices for hegs. Heretofore tho
local market could not handle the sup
ply of hogs but with the new plant in
operation, every hog offered here will
be cared for.
Of far greater interest to the aver
age farmer or stock grower is the fact
that tbo plant will establish a public
market. Auction sales can be establish
ed every Saturday for live steel; of all
kinds and the plant will offer free the
use of its corra's, loading sralcs and
trackage. Livestock of whatever kind

is pointed out that Hines was one f
