CITY GAS SUPPLY IS
Due to an' unusual consumption of 'gas, our gab plant cannot supply the demand.
It may be necessary in order ta maintain service to the majority of . our customers,
-who are wholly dependent upon gas for heating or cooking, to shut off some sections
of the city without further 'notice.
v Therefore, if you find your gas shut off, be sure to close the valves of your stove,
lamps or other appliances, AND LEAVE THEM CLOSED, until we notify you that
the gas has been turned on.
Your failure to observe this warning may cause an; explosion in your house when
the gas is turned on again.

GALIFORNIAN IS NEW
Johnston Defeats Tilden In
Fast Tennis Singles At
Forest Mills, L. I., Sept. 4. William
M. Johnston of San Francisco today
won the national singles championship,
dcfoatW William Tilden II of Phila
delphia in straight sets, 6-4, d-4, 6-3.
Johnston exhibited some of the most
marvelous tennis ever seen in the his
toric Forest Hills courts.- His speed
was amazing and his accuracy through
out uncanny. His court generalship
was too much for Tililen, who, in spite
of a srame struggle, .was utterly unable
to solve the Culifornian 's game.
Johnston forced the pace from the
outset. He rushed to tho net at every
opportunity and in that strategic po
sition shot placement after placement
into unoccupied territory after he had
maneuvered Tilden into position.
Johnston proved himself master of
almost ovory stroke known to tennis.
He showed an accurate cross court
servo that frequently caught Tilden
entirely unprotected. His volleying was
excellent, while his forehand work, al
ways one of his strongest points, was
Tilden 's cannon ball service, which
won for him many of his earlier
latches in the tournament, did not
bother Johnson to any .extent.

Owns $58,509 In Stock
Of Clevejacd -Bal Club
Xew York, Sept. 4. Ban Johnson,
president of the American league, tes
tified in court this afternoon that he
owns $;H,5U0 worth of stock in the
Cleveland club of that organization.

advanced the club $100,000 in March,
1916. Later $50,000 was taken up by
James C. Dunn, president of the club.

Fuel Supply Of Many Local
Homes To Be Cut Off To
Due to the extensive canning of
peaches, pears and tomatoes by the
good . housekeepers of, Salem, the gas
plant finds that gas is being used fast
er than it can be manufactured. As a
result the supply of gas is fanning
short in the storage' tanks and another
result is that a number of housekeep
ers wilt find their supply of gas cut
off "this evening.
' This cutting off of gas supplies will
apply at once to thoso who have other
means of cooking or heating. Many
houses and business institutions are
dependent "wholly upon gas for cook
ing and manufacturing j purposes, .For
this reason, those who have other sourc
cs for cooking will find themselves the
first to be shut .oft. , . . ,..
In addition to shutting off gas, the
lias vomoanv is-tailing uuoit alt larec
consumors depending wholly upon gas,
urging them to reduce their consump
tion as much as posskue. By this
means, it is hoped that those entirely
depending upon pas, will receive a sup
ply. . :
. Two generators at the gas,plant are
beincr' crowded -to their utmost capac
ity. A third lias been ordered, but due
to delayed railroad conditions in.. the
east and strikes, it has not arrived. As
soon as this third generator is receiv
ed, the company will be in position to
supplv gas for all users.
It is anticipated that this temporary
shortage will continue four or five
days, after which the company hopes
to turn on gas for all users.
There is a possibility that one or
more sections of the city may be shut
oti. If this should happen, tho gas com
pany issues the wanting that if any
one attempts to light the gas and finds
that it has been shot otf, it is bgo
lately necessary to turn off tiie valvss
of the stove or other appliances, and
to ibe sure and leave thein closed until
notified by the tas compuny that ser
vice nas oeen renewed.
There is ereat danger if this is not
done, as tho supplv of gas 'might bo
turned on 'and with all valves open,
the house soon becomes fillet! with gas
likolv to result in an explosion and dis
