Stock aMrket Presented
A Better Front Today
Now York, Jan. 24. Tho Evening
Sun financiui reviews today said:
I he trading community camo to a
bettor realization today that stock mtr
ket pessimism has been ovordono and
gavo moro hood to constructive factors.
Not that there wore any important new
developments affocting quoted values
for Wall Street to consider, but prin
cipally because of the belief that stocks
at Ruing prices have alroady largely
discounted any unfavorable evonts
which the near future may hold.
Tukon altogether, tho stock market
presented a much bettor front today
than for a week or more. This was due,
of course, to a considerable extent to
technical roasong within the market it
self. Tho short side having been the
popular one, it had become overcrowd
ed and tlio taking of profits evidently
played as important a part in olovating
quotations as now buying.

LABOR SYSTEM BEST
New South Wales Labor Min
ister Advocates Adoption
By US. OfJTiis Plan.
New" York, Jan. 24. "Permanent
peace cannot be assured until the na
tions of the world are placed on an
equal footing as far as labor m con
cerned," said G. S. Becby, minister ot
labor for New South Wales, today pre
vious to his departure for England to
continue his investigations of condi
tions. He has heen in the United States
three months, visiting San Francisco,
Portland, Oregon, Denver, Chicago,
Pittsburg, Philadelphia and other in
dustrial and trade centers.
Explaining the system in operation
in Australia, he said he believed it
could be made, applicable here as well
as in European nations by building up
a system that will create a bettor un
derstanding between capital and labor.
"The recognition of the fundamen
tals of the eight hour day, the right to
organize, the settlement of industrial
disputes by conference and negotiation
instead of litigation" he advocates
aa essentials in laying the foundation
of stable labor conditions.
Are Now Disintegrated
"The splendid organization you
have had during the war to control
the situation are now virtually disinte
grated and the industrial conditions are
more or less chaotic," said Beeby. Tho
adaption of the Australian system to
the United States, he believes will rem
edy this condition.
The Australian laws, as effective or
proposed, provide for:
Federal regulation of factory and
Workmen's compensation and acci
dent and social insurance.
A method of fixing the basic living
Control of child labor apprentice
ship and vocational training.
Prescribing of the standard working
These laws control all other matter
directly affecting employers and work
men 's relations.
The arbitration boards, ho said, con
sist of an equal number of represent
atives from both sides, with an inde
to whether dogs are to be allowed to
run at largo. In cities, upon a petition
of 20 voters, an election must be held.

Smith of Baker introduced in the
house this morning a bill providing

$2, mountain lion $10, and seail pup $3.
A bill providing that the state en
gineer be allowed to endorse labor bills
amounting to not more than $200 and
for supplies amounting to not more
than $100, was referred back to the
house this morning with tho recom
mendation that it do not pass. As it is
understood that tho highway commis
sioners were in favor of the bill, it was
laid on the table. It is understood that
the bill was favored by the highway
commission in order that a great part
of its time at meetings would not be
t iken up by going through the hund
reds of little bills that accumulate.
Also in case of laborers, that State
Engineer -Nunn might pay them off
when they, went on to other work.

from the weather bureau at Portland
received today noon reads: "River at
Albany 0 feet. Will reach crest about
21.5 feet at Salem Saturday, then
fall." As there is no snow in the
mountains and there has been no addi
tional rains, it is felt that after reach
ing 21.5 feet, the water will fall as
rapidly as it came op.
