Kerr, counsel for tho Great Northern Pacific Htenmship company, wns non plussed today when he was shown a United Press dispatch telling of tho order oT the interstnto commerce com mission calling for 'a hearing on the ownership of the steamship Great Northern, with reforenco to its right to pass through tho l'anuma canal. "Thero is no question about owner ship of tho boats," Mr. Kerr snid. "As everybody knows, tho stock of the steamship company ia held by Spo kane, Portlnnd and Henttlo railway, which rood is owned jointly by the j Northern Pacific and Great Northern , railroads, I "As for tho right of the steamships Great Northern and Northern Pacific to use the ennui in getting from the Atlantic to the Pacific, tho Pannmn canal act is explicit in excluding only those railroad owned ships which com pete directly with tho railroad that owns them. Whether or not there is such competition with reference to the Northern Pacific and Great Northern rnilronds is the only question that I can see. It nppenrs to me that no sneh competition exists because neither railroad reaches tho Atlantic seaboard directly." None of tho local officials of the '.Great Northern l'acifie Htinmnhip com pany had received any iuformation re garding the subpoenas for the hearing. President Oilman is still in Han Fran cisco supervising repairs to the steam er Great Northern. 1 PIONEER WOMAN DEAD. 1 Mcdford, or., April '.The death of Mrs. Clara Birdseye. aunt of I'nited States Senator Harry Lane and a .laclc son county pioneer of tho '30 s, oc curred at her home near here today.

Mason former European Manager of tba United Press.) Now York, April .There in reason to believe that reports of submarine! bei'nff caught in nets and either cap ture! or destroyed are true. Rumors that the British admiralty had design ed a protective netting to guard against submarines have been in circulation sinca the announcement of the German blockade. Lately these reports have become more persistent The most important fact, pointing to confirmation of these reports, is in the admiralty' having refused to announce the particular of the dust motion of submarines. The form is, "the admir alty has reason to believe a submarine has been lost." The English newspa pers print no details, sad considering that England ia most interested in the destruction of submarines, only press ing strategic reason could cause partic ulars ia be withheld. Thit the details are suppressed to mystify Germany aud erouto u feeling of uncertainty among the submarine commanders ia unquestionable. It docs not follow that the mystery and uncer tainty is created by nets, but it is most probaole that a Jules Verne imagina tion is not require! to anticipate the FOR THE BENEFIT Big Display of Masterpieces At Library Auditorium April 27 to May 1 According to an announcement being sent out by City Superintendent Elliott) to the teachers of tho Salem schools, I the advertising materials for tho art exhibit to be given for the purpose of providing funds for the purchuse of copies of masterpieces in art for decorations of the schools rooms of the city, and the sale of tickets will be launched immediately.

In using nets the object is to en tangle the propellor of a submarine and hold the vessel fast and helpless n me Bottom of tho sea. A fishing net would not damage a propellor. Nets with small Bteol meshes from 10 to IS ftet square are used, several being sunk together at intervals. They are anchored to the river or bottom, the upper ond being buoyed 30 or 40 feet below tho surface. They must be this distance below tho sur face to escape detection and also to prevent surface craft from fouling them. When the submnrine plunges, the net slides along the bottom of the bent until the propollor is reached. The screws then draw in tho meshes and the submarine becomes a captive from its own efforts. If tho nm-horage of the netting is not secure, the submarine probably would rise but only to tlmt helplessly on the surface, if the an chorage holds, the crew of submarine must release a distress buoy to tho sur face in token ot surrender. If the buy is observed, divers limy cut the anchors aud permit the submarine to rise. Otherwise the crew must pay the penalty, BOYS CLASS OF Y. M .C. A. TO GIVE EXHIBITION The Hoys' class of the Y.
