Agreement regarding lowered steel
prices is the result of the industrial

FIND CUJE TO IRAQ.'
F CONVICT RUPERT
ers Believe He Was Pick
ed Up By Auto Not Far
From Gold M.
Warden Stevens, of tho penitentiary,1
received a wire this morning that a elue
to the escaped convict, Unpen, hr.d
been found at a point called Gazelle, a
lumbering place about 100 miles south I
of Gold Hill and near the California
border. Wm. B. Bryon, a Portland se-
cret serviee man, and Inspection Agent
Cirtourie, of the Southern Pacife, are in,
charge of the work, of scouring that
part of the state, and they have learned
as a possible means of identification
that Rupert picked up in his get-away
from Gold Hill a gray flannel shirt, a
second hand pair of overalls belonging
t0 a Southern Pacific fireman, and a
soft, gray hat. i
The officers who are trailing the fu
gitive have a "hunch" that no was
wicked up not far from Gold Hill by a
party witn an auto, and that their ob
ject is to either reach the Mexican bor
der or break through to some South
American port. If he adopted the lat
ter course tie would have to obtain a
passport, and for this reason all offices':
of issuance are being closely watched.
It appears that Rupert was in for a'
term of three years, but would have be-
come eligible to parole within & few
weeks. However, as be had & federal
charge hanging over him he preferred
not to bo placed on parole for fear that
an investigation wouM br:ng to light
(criminalities that would bring a second
term or eounnement upon him. Hence
his desire to eet r.wav from the federal
authorities. So closely are the avenues
of escape guarded that the officers are
very sanguine or appreticnuing him
snouia lie emerge rrom the tail timber
of northern California.
CLAIMS IT OPERATES
ON LOSIJiGBASIS HERE
Public Service Commission Is
Hearing Reports Of Ex
B. W. Maey, city attorney, and E. T.
Bussolle", consulting engineer, have ro-
turned from Portland whore they have
been attending the hearing before the
public service commission in tho de
mands made by the Pacific Telephone
& Telegraph company for a radical iu-
c euse in telephone rates. The hearing
will probably close today.
The tclephono company is baaiug its
demand for higher rates on the fact
that in Kaieiu, for tho yeur 1918, it oper
ated ai a loss of $7L'00. Tho reueipts at
Salem for tho year were $74,000 ana me
expenses $Sl,t00, according to the re
port made to the commission. Based on
the present income and expense, the
telephone company claims that for this
year, its losses in Salem will approxi
mate $15,000, unless it is granted an in
creuso in rates.
In order to get at both sides of the
proposition, the public service commis
sion today in hearing evidence of sev
eral experts wh0 were sent to San Fran
cisco to look over tho books of the teio-
Flexed Salem Out.
Mr. Bussello in stating the case of
the ctiy of Salem, claimed that the tele
phone company had picked out Salem

figures of Albany, Eugene, Astoria and
other towns would not justify a higher

With tho amount of work now beforo
it, the chances are that the public serv
ice commission will not renaer ig de
cision for a month or more. If the
figures of income and expense present
ed by the telephono company are veri
fied, the chances are that within a few
months Salem and vicinity will bo pay
