The river is acting rather queer
these days. Ordinarily ..when it ..has
reached a flood stage and begins to re

the present high water the flood stage
was Monday morning, at 18.6 feet.
Then the water fell to 175 feet Tues
day morning and 1,7.4 feet this morn

have added another volume of water
and at 1 o'clock today, the river had
risen to IS feet. J

A certain Presbyterian elder in Sa
lem put the influenza situation about
right when he said that the board of
health and the city authorities had been
in about as embarrassing position as
te Almighty when Deacon Jones, on
ono side of the fence, prayed most de:
voutly that it might rain on his perish
ing corn, while Elder Brown, on the
other side of the fence, was praying
just as devoutly that it might not ram
on his new-mown hsy.
For more than ten weeks the auth
orities have been confronted with a
demand for rigid enforcement of the
closing order to prevent the spread of
the epidemic and the newspapers have
lent their influence in warning the pop
ulaco against carelessness. On the oth
er hand there are scores of business
houses that have seen people tightened
away from Salem, business stagnated,
and big deficits rolling up week tfter
week. No person not in business can
obtain any adequate idea of the per
manent loss tjat has been caused
through this situation. There are busi
ness firms here who have lost from $20
to 50 a day throughout this siege.. Not
only has loss been caused directly by
sickness and death; the worst phase of
the situation is that hundreds of people
have kept away from Salem with the
misguided idea, that they were more
liable to contract the disease by coming
here than they would by going else
It is not to be wondered at that there
has grown up a loud demand from the
business interests that- the restrictions
upon business be removed and that they
be more rigidly enforced upon influenza
victims in ell stages of the disease.
There are many substantial business
men who bave maintained that if there
had been more drastic enforcement of
quarantine regulations the public insti
tutions of the city might heve been
kept in operation, under certain restric
For these reasons much interest cen
tered upon the conference between, the
local authorities and Dr. Sceley at the
high school building this morning. This
meeting was attended by teachers,
physicians, representatives of the uni
versity faculty and of the business cot
lego to whom Dr. Seeley made a care
ful survey of the situation and gave
a very suggestive talk as to tho best
mothods of dealing with the epidemic.
But contrary to general expectations,
Dr. Sceley made no suggestions or rec
ommendations as to immediate lifting
of the ban, however much hcoiB-y be in
sympathy with the business interests.
It has been generally assumed that this
meeting would pave the way for an
immediate opening of the town, but it
would appear that the medical fratern
ity of the city were decidedly opposed
to any such cction. As the initiative
and power to act has been conferred
upon the board of health and tho com
mittee of physicians associated with
them, it appears that they hold the key
to the situation in their hands. It re
quires no prophot to foresee a vigorous
protest from the business interests un
less there is some promise of immediate
relief from tho present conditions.

much the Salem public library is ap
