The articles which increased in price were eggs and rice, 6 per cent, each; potatoes and raisins, 4 per cent, each; fresh and evaporated milk, coffee and even the once lowly prune, but now much of a delicacyj 3 per cent, each; pork chops, butter, corn meal, rolled oats, mavy beans arid sugar went up 2 per cent, while canned salmon, cheese, bread and oranges saw 1 per cent. jHam and tea strange to say, increased less thar five-tenths of 1 per cent.

WILSON TO FIGHT RESERVATIONS TO TREATY TO FINISH En Route To Cheyenne, Wyo., Sept. 24.?tfhe fight has just? begun, Convinced that eighty per cent of the American people are for a Lea gue of Nations and wouli rather see , the proposed league established than none at all, President Wilson means to fight to a finish against ifeserva, tions that would alter the meaning of the treaty. He told his audience | at Ogden, Utah, that it didn't make any difference to him how long the fight would be, that he would fight ,, till it was won. . Coming on. the top of disquieting . news dispatches telling first of tfie defection of Senator Thomas, of | Colorado, and then of the intention of eight Democrats led by Senator Ashhurst .to amend the treaty and send it back to conference, Mr. Wilson's brief speech at Ogden gives ' an idea of *the seriousness with which he regards attempts to amend the treaty . at this time. So does his speech at Salt Lake. Perhaps it was the news from Washington or the consciousness 1 that he must no longer be too supersensitive of senatorial feelings, but the president said at Odgen, that "All the elements which tended i toward disloyalty during the warj ' are against the league," and that so ! far as he was concerned* he meant! ! to see the thing through and not j i betray the men who fought for the I j | } j establishment of a copcert of power j that would make further war unnec-! Icessary. Mr. Wilson feels intensely on the j subject because public manifesta- j lions have just been unmistakably in j his favor as he has traversed the cific coast states, and his reception, in Nevada was enthusiastic/ The " support being given hiar by" Ttepubli.... ... To can as well as Democratic newspapers in Utah also is significant of the i trend of popular opinion. ITALY'S SANCTION FOR D'ANN'JNZIO | STRONGLY , HINTED Paris, Sept. 24.-?"As a nation, we j consider the Fiume matter settled, because we have actual possession," j I said General 'Giuseppe (Peppino) I I Garibaldi to an Associated Press representative here this morning. General Garibaldi had just reached Paris from Rome, coming on what was said to i>e an important mission from which he would go to meet Gabriele D'Anunzio, the insurgent Italian leader, in possession of Fiume. "Had D'Annunzio not gone in," continued Garibaldi, "we would have done it within fifteen days. "If President Wilson were moved j by the right spirit," he added, "he j would permit the whole question to j be decided by France, England and1 Italy. In that case we are satisfied J that our rights would be recognized j as they already are recognized by the j majority of Americans, in "whom ' Italians have absolute confidence." !

"I can not make a real speech i the circumstances," he said, "for.yo will understand "the theme that I hav most at heart needs a lot of sg room to turn in and I would despai of making any adequate remark about so great a matter as the treat of p^ace or the league of nations but I do find this, that the thing i very near the heart of the people.
