why are the peoplo of Portland asked
to subscribe for soldier,' welfare
fund, when the -Mayor Bake, fund' for
emergencies for soldiers and sailors
from Oregon lies Idle in the Northwest
ern National bank!"
Mayor Baker answerod the question
yesterdny morning bv saying:
"Tho state ha, appropriated $100,000
the wnr enmp community service has a
fund of about $60,000. My idea is that
we ought t0 keep tho emergency fund
to meet it real emergency. People who
had nothing to do with raising thin
fund are criticising me, or rather the
committee in charge of it, for guarding j
it jealously. But tho time nuvy como
when tho money now available has been
exhausted and when a real emergency
will appear. Then it will be mighty
fine in have money evailablo to meet
such an emergency. If it Bhould hap
pen that the money it not needed for
nn emergency, good use can be made of
it ultimately. Why dig into it nowt"
The fund referred to wa, subscribed
in the early day, of America', pcrtioi
pation in tho world war. It was in
tended to reach $25,000 but subscrip
tions did not pass beyond about $13,000.
The mnvor said that he hsd sent Colon
el May" of the old Third Oregon " in
France' $1000. He thought a similar
amount had gone to Chaplain Gilbert,
and snirller amounts to tho coast guard.
"I sent $600 t0 O. C. Loiter in New
York to assist in meeting the Oren
soldiers a, they arrive from overseas,"
snid the mnvor, "but thi, particular
amount was added to the fund from the
proceeds of a- boxing match."
While the original intention was to
rpend tho mayor's emergency funds for
organised units through their officers,
the mayor said that the money could
be used to meet any real emergency.
"But that doesn't mean,' 'he added.

Rails Irregular Today
With Narrow Limit
New York, Jnn. 27. The Evening
Sun financial review today says:
The announcement of the removal of
restrictions of stock exchungc loans
could not have been at a better time.
Coining, as it did, after the market
had closed on Friday and with Satur
day, when there was no money market
and Sunday to intervene between then
and today's session, there was but
scant reflection from the opening. Tho
shorts in the steel group made a show
of covering for a brief period because
of Judge Uury's outburst of optimism
concerning the labor problem and the
general situation, but tho influence of
that quickly woro off and whatever
gaius were reigstercd in that quarter
were for the most part cancelled. Bald
win Locomotivo Slid American Car and
Foundry wore lower from the outset
and the shipping shares also displayed
a eactionary tendency. Tho rails were
irregulnr within a narrow limit, with
some few exceptions, such as Texr. and
Pacific and Missouri Pacific preferred,
which advanced in good form, and
Rock Island, which was under pres
sure. i Two life insurance solicitors1 A. B.

Stop Itching Eczema
Never mind how often you have tried
and failed, you can stop burning, itching
eczema quickly by applying Zemo fur
nished by any druggist for 35c. Extra
large bottle, $1.00. Healing begins the
moment Zemo is applied. In a short
time usually every trace of eczema,
tetter, pimples, rash, blackheads and
similar skin diseases will be removed.
For clearing the skin and making it
vigorously healthy, always use Zemo,
the penetrating, antiseptic liquid. It
is not greasy and does not stain. When
others fail it is the one dependable
treatment for skin troubles' of all kinds.
