FOR MERCHANT MARINE
SAYS SENATOR JONES
Is As Important To Inland
Business Men As To Those
By L C. Martin.
Washington, March 14. Collective
thought of the whole American people
should be applied to the future of tho
American marine, in the opinion of
Senator Jones, Washington, slated to be
chairman of the senate coffcice com
mittee in tho 66th congress.
'Tanners, businoss men and citizons
generally havo as vital interest in put
ting the merchant ilect on its feet per
manently as an American institution as
shipping men have," said Jones today.
"Inlund Americans who uover realized
how deeply their welfare is involved,
should wake up to tho fact. In the
years just ahead, it is going to be migh
ty important to farmers and business
men in the middle west, for instance,
t0 know that their products will get. on
tho world's markets on a basis of fair
competition with the products of other
count-ios. To insure this, we must have
an American merchant marine, the equal
or any in ho world.

1,654 VOTERS M
This Nmaber Necessary For
Submitting Bond Proposi
tion For Market Reads.
When it comes to voting bonds at
a' spocial election, the state law Is
very careful to require a large number
of voters to sign a petition that an
election be hold, - At regular elections
tho law makers wcre not s0 particular
and provided that only 10 per cent of
tho vote that was cast at a former gen
oral election should be ' necessary to
sign a petition.
But with special elections the statutes
provide that at least one fourth of tho
number who voted for tho justico of
the supreme eourt receiving the high
est voto at the provioua general elec
tion must sign the petition.
The last general election in Oregon
was in November of 1918 and the just
ice of the supreme court receiving tho
highest vote was Chas. A. Johns of
Portland. His vote was 6,614.
Hence, according to the law, it will be
necessary to have on the petition asking
for an election on good roads, the tig
natures of 1,654 voters.
With this number on the petition it
will be submitted to the county court
and through an order oitara ouun, tht
proposition will be placed on the bal
lot a8 to whether Marion county waftl
to spend money on market roads.
Fortunately for the couaty, through
already legalized methods of raising
tuxes, 89 per cent of the money neces
s:i.y will be collected. It is estimated
that the bonds will have to no iuci
ivi only 11 per cent of the cost of con
struction. The special election is on
June 3 when the voters will have sever
al important subjects on which to ex
press an opinion.

Say England Hi
Ireland With i
British Soldiers Numbering Between One And Two Hund
red Thousand Are Constantly On Duty All Through
. out Island. Prominent Irish Radicals Predict, How
ever, That They Will Soon Gain Independence.
By Ralph F. Couch

.Now York, Mar. 14. England is
"holding Ireland with 200,000 'bayo
nets,"Sinn Fein officials charge.
Lori! Mayor O'Neill of Dublin, an
Irish nationalist, estimates the "army
of occupation" at 100,000. . , -
The exact numbor of soldiers, iu Ire
land, is, of course, a military secret.
. But to the visitor in Dublin the mass
of uniforms encountered is amazing.
Sentries are posted at the entrances
of all public buildings. They march
through tho streets in squads and com
panies. All are fully armed and most
of them wear shrapnel helmets.
Ready to Put Down Revolt
'.' England is ready to put down a
revolution here," the Kov. Michael O'
Flanaghan, vice president of tho Sinn
Fein national council told mo just 'be
fore I left Dublin two weeks ago.
"la addition to tho soldiers, there
is the Royal Irish conslobulary which
is scattered through the rural districts
and also polices all cities except liub
lin. This force numbers 1 1,000. The
Dublin police force totals 2t)00. Assum
ing there are only 100,000 English sol
diejd in Ireland and' most, of the esti
mates placo the number at 200,000
the island, with -a population of only
4,000,000, has one soldier or constable
for every 35 persons.
"Compare this with your New York,
which has a population of 6,000,000
and but little more than ten thousand
policomen. That is ono policeman, for
every 600 persons in the most con
gested city in the world."

"We're hoping Amerioa will help us

Violation of Rules Frequent
Violations of military regulations:
are frequent, however. Almost .daily
tho newspapers tell of courts martial
at Dublin castle, headquarters of tho
British army there. Windows of mag
azino torea and book simps are filled
with pamphlets whose headlines shout
defiance to the "British military rule'
Sinn Fein .propaganda is displayed and
soW everywhere, itogfnthcr with pic
tures of Edward DoValera, tho fugitive
binn Fein leader, and his lieutenants.
"Men ere arrested, fined and some
times imprisoned for singing Sinn Fein
songs," said Secretary Shehan of the
Sinn Fein national council. ;

Not only will construction begin
within month or so on- a $500,000 pa

buildings will ull be erected on tha

F. W. Leadbettcr, who is one of the
expert pajicr mill men of tho northwest
is in tho city today conferring with C
fv. Wpauldinjr over final .details, Mr.
Leadbotter is vico presidout of tha
Smulding Logging Co., vice president
of tha Crown Willamotte Paper mills
at Oregon City, director of the North- ;
western .National bank at Portland, in- '
torostod in other paper mills in tho
northwest and will bo president of tho '
half a million- dollar mill soon to bo
erected in Salem. ;
To Be Most Complete i
Speaking of the Salem mill, Mr.
Leadhetter said this morning:
"The paper mill to bo erected in
kaalem will be ono of the most eoinplcto
mills on tho coast and will be equip
ped with ithe most modern machinery
mado for tho manufacture of paper, ,
The mill will make a specialty in
what is known as sulphite ipapera, tho
higher grade, ulthnugh later it may
make news print. The paper making
machine will bo the largest that is
mado and capable of making $ny kind
".lkfidos the main paper mill, which
is to 'be 80 by 200 feet and two storiea
high, there will be a separate pulp mill :
"The idea of building here in Salem -is
to us all the waste of the Spauld
ing mill. Our other big mills are oblig
ed to burn oil. In the Salem mill wa
will uso saw dust for fuel. Hemlock 1
slabs will bo converted into sulphite '
Sulphite Mill Also
. '.'Besides the pulp mill, there will be "
erected sulphite mill and also an .
acid plant. Each of those will bo a sep-
arato building. A special building will
e ereetoa ror tne Doner pianx.
This will be placed just ibetweon tha
.SpauMing mill and the new paper mill
as a matter of economy.
"It may ibo a month or so before we
begin work but wo confidently hope to
havo tho mill in operation one year
from now and to be employing iOU
"We require a few expert men to
handle the &iig machines, 'but most of
xne moor wu
1 be drawn from Salem
Mr. Leadbotter has great confidence
in the ability of C. K. Spaulding to se
cure materials for tho new mill. In
fact, Mr. Leadbotter gives Mr. Spauld
ing groat credit for the success of the
Crown Willamette Paper mills at Ore
gon City from the fact that he has
successfully :klept the mills supplied
for tho past 1" years with materials.
"Mr. Spaulding knows more about get
ting material to the paper mille than
any man on the const," said Mr. Lead- '
better. "For 13 years-he has supplied
lho Oregon City mills. When it cornea
to delivering materials, ir. opauiuuig
is a pioneer."
