A special session of the hoU and
senate labor committee has already
been announced for Thursday, when
the Kelly-Poindexter resolution, direct
ing the president to call an industrial
conference will be considered.
Senator (Kenyon, chairman of the
senate labor committee, said that the
president's announcement would not
change the plan for action on the reso
lution at the earliest moment.
Adoption of the resolution would
merely give the conference which the
president has in mind, the approval of
congress it was explained.
' trie president's plan for a nation
al conference seems an excellent one,"
said Secretary John Scott, of the- rail
way department of tho A. Jr. of L. "An
understanding must tie reached be
tween employos and employers in all
industries if the present industrial un
rest is to be quieted. The government
should use it influence to emphasize
to employers that none can refuse to
recognize the right of workers to or
ganize and bargain collectively. The
president is right in declaring n new
basis must be adopted for wage ad
justments. Tribunals should be set up
in all communities to promote Indus-

Owing to my limited, time I will be unable to call on
all the farmers and business men in and arpund Salem to
whom we wished to extend the invitation to join with us
in the building of what we hope will make Salem the

At the same time we are quite anxious to have all
those who wish to do so, join us in the upbuilding of this

Many of your prominent men have joined us already,
and I take this means of reaching all of you and extend
ing the invitation.
Aside from the great community and increased land
value profits which you will all derive from the industry's
greatest development, we feel sure that the investment
will prove most profitable to you.

States, Belgium, the British Empire and
France, of the one part, and Germany of
the other part, with regard to the mili
tary occupation of the territories of the
Rhine, also signed at Versailles on the
28th of June.
"The declaration of the 16th of Jun.
to which you refer, was a mere declara
tion of policy and does not become in
any way pertinent until the treaty is
eifected. My impression is that a cer
tain degree of embarrassment would be
caused, not to the TJnited States bnt to
the countries with which we must neees
sarlly cooperate in many- particulars in
the execution of the treaty, if it were
communicated now. It will, of course,
be made public in due time.
With regard to tho treaties of Aus
tria, Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey, it
would be out of the question for :ie to
submit them in their present form, even
to tho committee on foreiga relations.
They are in process of negotiation
and and are subject to change and re
consideration until completed and sign
ed. I am sure that the committee on
foreign relations wilT appreciate :iie un-
desirabihty creating the precedent
which could be created by submitting
treaties in their draft form. It would
tend to take the f uiu-tio i of negotiating
treaties out of tho hand of the execu
tive, where it is expressly vested liy the
In reply, Senator Lodge wrote, in
"The declaration of the 16th oi June

ord frAra the English white book, the
declaration having, been submitted to

as, ia drafts of information regarding
the treaties of Austria, Hungary, Bul

emirpe, that the request asked merely
for such information aa yoa eould give
them, if it were not incompatible with
public interest. The four treaties still to
be mace are so closely connected with
the German treaty, that many senators
have thought that all the peace treaties
should be considered together an! the

formation aa yoa felt could be properly
given in the hope ths. t it might hasten

INCREASED COSTS HIT
CITY; GRAYEL PRICES
: ".JRIS!? El TWO CONIHS
About two months ago when the city
had two of the large rollers used with
its paying plant for sale, it was offered (
$1500 by one of the gravel companies, I
provided the eity would take in pay
ment gravel at 65 cents per eubto yard. !
But the eity fathers arose in their wrath j
at the mere suggestion that the city was
willinir to trade gravel, even if it did
need it, for the two rollers.
The same eity fathers said tbeywaiit
ed reai hard money for the rollerj and
that the council was not in the swap
ping business. Hence there was no trade.
And now the city, instead of geUir.ji its
gravel for 65 cents a yard, is paying 90
eents for the rough gravel, $1.00 for con
create gravel river run and. $1.30" per
cubic yard for sand or screenings. There
are at present two gravel companies in
Salem and according to a competent au
thority, while they may not be breaking
any law by combining prices, tho same
authority has noted that each have the
same prices and that each has estaolish
cd zones for hauling in which prices are
precisely the same. While the Walcm
Sand & Gravel company and the Oregon
Gravel company, both of Salem, have a
uniform price of 00 eents for grave to
sell the city, it is understood that Al
bany has a municipal gravel pit ancTthat
its gravel costs about one-half the price
charged the citv of Salem. The price
of all kinds of gravel has gone up 25
cents a yard during tho past two

Many people would like to know the reason "why" of this store's
phenomenal success. The explanation is simplevery simple indeed.
It has to do with the old, old adage, "Honesty is the Best Policy.
We don't want to make capital out of honesty. Neither do we
want, to advertise the fact that we are honest. We just want to tell
others how pleasant and profitable we have found it to conduct a
