TWO DOlGLS COVXTY TOWNS ARK ITT IN QUARANTINE THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1818. : OREGON WEATHER Rain west portion; rain or f snow east portion; moderate -f southwesterly winds. -f-t- THE "FliC The lnfluenia situation is not only stirring the people ot Grants Pass, tut the same conditionsthe dis agreements and whipsawing is in evidence in many cities. Tbe Spo kane schools have again closed be cause ot tbe epidemic, and due to a renewed outbreak of tbe disease the schools ;ot Portland and Medtord may close tor the second time. . The public schools of Grants Pass are still open, which meets the ap proval of some, while others are keeping their children at home and frown at the health officers for not clamping the lid down again on schools and public meetings. Some doctors report many cases of tbe disease, others say there are but few. Some physicians say tbe cases reported are now serious, others as sert that there Is no immediate dan ger. In tbe meantime tbe citizens are "up in the air," so to speak, not knowing what to tblnk of the situa tion. It would seem that the ser iousness of the disease could be bet ter determined. In speaking of the epidemic in Portland, the Oregonian pays: "It would be strange, if that after every Portland physician has treated and observed many cases of influ enza, a physicians' conference could not agree approximately upon tbe communication period. And the character of the epidemic calls for something more than intermittent closing ot business. It still exists in Spain where it first appeared more than a year ago. It.bas broken out again in Vienna after a period of Quiescence. It has reappeared in parts of England after It was believ ed to have run its course. In this country several cities have again closed business because of its re currence. "The city must not go on indefi nitely closing and' opening and clos ing again. The situation calls for an intelligent, fixed campaign against the disease. We have more confi dence In the medical profession than to believe it can offer nothing better than the unsatisfactory and unfair and economically disastrous reetrlc tions so far devised." greea who heretofore have invari ably assented to every move propos ed by tbe administration for tbe speedy prosecution ot the war, voiced their disapproval ot leaving congress in session without a presi dent, stating that the president, while in transitu and during bis stay In Europe, would not be president In fact. It would seem to an independent thinker that there is a little unreas onableness on both sides, with the scales of justice tipping in favor of the congressmen who protested. These men, the majority ot them, do not object to tbe president attending the peace conference providing he permit Vice President Marshall to act as president during bis absence. But here is where Wilson displays an ultra-mania for retaining su preme power. Vice President Mar shall was given to understand by his chief that his ideas or assistance were not needed and Marshall meekly acquiesced. President Wilson's admirers as sert that the allies and "our boys over there" have been fighting for the famous 14 points, claiming that they cover "everything," while the republicans and independents affirm that the soldiers have been "fight ing to crush Prussian militarism. ThuB far, no one seems to under stand just what the 14 points mean, but the president may fully explain that at tbe conference. Some voice their distrust that the president is going for the purpose of acting as' sort of referee between the allies and Germany, but that is hard ly urobable. However, Wilson's re buff to Marshall, In declining his j services or assistance in any manner while abroad, brings forth the ques-; tion. "why should we have a president what is he for?" 69 to TO per cent, verifies the old saying that "the Lord helps htm who helps himself." Judging from tbe Portland Labor Press, union labor will strike on the 9th in protest to the Mooney de cision If they think they can "get away with it." Merely to fix the date in your mind, says the Portland Telegram, remember that American troops reached the Rhine December 1 and occupied German soil. The man who suggested that the captured German ships be sunk cer tainly had a "deep" thought. Winnipeg, Canada, Dec. 5. Plans for the demobilization of Canada's 286,304 overseas troops under a system intended to meet economic and industrial conditions have been completed and will be put Into oper ation when withdrawal of the forces is consented to by the high command. After considering available ship ping facilities and rolling stock in Canada, the Imperial Ministry ot Shipping and tbe Canadian war board have concluded that the rate of return can approximate 20,000 men iter month.

"Mr. noover" means to millions "save food;" "Mr. McAdoo" means "save transportation "Mr. Garfield" means "save fuel," and more recently "Mr. Donnelley" has come to mean "save paper." The writer had occasion to talk over the paper situation with Mr. Donnel ley, end many interesting sidelights in paper economy were opened up. When naked regarding the conserva tion of paper on the part of stnte print ers, city printers and other semi-official organizations, Mr. Donnelley sug gested that steps would probably be taken in the near future to curtail the printing of city manuals until after the war. Mr. Donnelley also suggested that eventually Liberty loan commit tees, fuel commissioners, lied Cross, department managers and such organi sations ns the T. M, C. A., T. W. O. A and K. of C. would be called upon to observe certain rules for conserving paper. When asked the scope of the curtailment necessary he replied that "In nearly every case, cheaper grades of. paper can be used when the litera ture was absolutely necessary, and the circulation should fee boiled down and requisition made for only the number of prints required.
