West Salem Car Service Not Fully Satisfactory Considerable inconvenience is report ed by residents of West Salem regard ing the jitney car service between Salein and the west side of the river on account of the stopping of cars about ten thirty o'clock in the evening. Yesterday evening a little school girl, depending on the car service to get home, came to Salem to sec a show. When the show was over, she found she could not get home because the jitney car had stopped running, and she had to remain in Salem all night and go home this morning. It is stated that there arc two train crews, each scheduled for a ten-hour tour of duty. One of these crews is said to go on duty at about 2:40 o'clock in the afternoon and operate the 0ir for ten hours, which would make the tour end about 12:40 o'clock the next morning. It is declared that the afternoon crew stops the running of the cars about ten-thirty and so inconveniences the residents of West Salem who-may be delayed beyond their hour in re turning home. The people across the river believe the jitney service should extend for the full time the men are supposed to work. Last Evening Service of Friends' Association The last evening service of the Friends ministerial association of Ore fin -q,-1v meetincr will occur this ev ening at the Highland Friends church. The address of the evening win ne giv en by President Levi T. Pennington of Pacific College, on the subject. "Friends attitude on peace. " As is generally known, the society of Friends were pioneers in the work of peace, and the public is earnestly invited to hear this exposition of Friends attitude on this great world problem. The principal address of the after- nnnn u-o oiveti nn the nHieet ' The phine Hockett, pastor of the Highland Tonnage of Over Ninety Thousand Is Destroyed The totalled tonnage of ships reported sunk or captured by the German raider in United Prr-s dispatches today is 94,736 tons. This at eieluaive of some of the ships which are not listed by Lloyds. Washington, D. C, Jan. 17. No at tempt was made by British diplomats here to hide their concern over United Press dispatches telling of wholesale ship sinkings by a German raider in South Atlantic waters. The alarming feature of the incident, one official said, is that repetition of the feat is not at all impossible. The German raiders, it was said, can without much difficulty avoid the British patrol fleet by making the first part of their dash for liberty inside territorial waters of Denmark, where British warships cannot pursue them. They are then in a position to make a six hour dash at night for open sea with good chances of getting away. The ouly real solution is a system of naval convhys, British officials say, as it is impracticable to arm merchant men sufficiently to stand off such raiders as the one now working in the South Atlantic. When reminded of the fact that a convoyed merchantman was subject to submarine attack without warning, British diplomats said it was believed I a destroyer would be able to protect a merchantman against a submarine as well as from a raider. Vessels Are Warned. Norfolk, Jan. 17. Masters of all British ships are warned not to pro ceed in the direction of the locality named. A submarine, supposedly German, was also reported sighted 800 miles at sea off the capes. British consular officers here have received official notification to ex tend the warning to all allied vessels in American ports.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH Creamery Men In Session Here Decide It Is Too Much Portland When the managers of 35 creameries . ..11 V-. .. .. - ...v ... m mem ouisiae tne city ot Portland, it is fairly good evidence that something is wronc with the creamery business and that that wrong seems to be the treatment the country creameries are getting from Portland. This was the universal opinion ex pressed at the meeting held this after noon at the Commercial club when an honest and frank opinion was asked of the managers as to what is the. matter with the creamery business. tne answer was that the .limine was n the marketing end, and the opinion was several times expressed that it ine i rcumery men are to continue in the business, thero must be organiza tion that will fight the wrongs that have been done by the Portland houses. After the election of J. D. Mickle, dairy and food commissioner for Ore- gon, as temporary chairman, and C. Von Lche of Philomath, as temporary son, of Portland, who will tell of pend secretary, Mr. Mickle was asked to ' ing legislation of interest to business talk on the situation. men. Senator Gus C. Moscr. of Portland. "Thero is need of this movement for co-operation" said Mr. Mickle, "if you men expect to stay in the creamery business. I believe you are greatly responsible for the present un satisfactory conditions as you have made no concerted effort to secure a state market. 'You should have a voice in the con duct of your own business, yet you have no say as to the price your prod uct will bring. That price is named in Portland. You represent three fourths of the total product in Oregon. ''The whole trouble with the cream ery industry is in the marketing end. There is something wrong. You know it is in Portland and you know the remedy. I will entertain any proposi tion for an equal show of all cream eries. You have been oppressed. I want the country creamery to have a fair show. You should demand what is yours and tight until you get it." A. Slaughter, president of the Ore gon Buttermakers' Association, said he most emphatically agreed with the ideas of Mr. Mickle. Ho thought the only remedy was to organize. Unless something is done to remedy condi tions, it is only a question of the next election when there will be placed on the ballot a measure calling for a state market, with subsidiary markets throughout the stato, ho said. Mr. Slaughter also referred to the fact that a bill will be introduced in the pres ent legislature for a state market. "These troubles have al! been brought about," said Mr. Slaughter, "by the av butter anil nutter int. nave bbbii manipulated in the Portland market. I lo not believe in begging the Port- land Exchange for a crumb. After we . ...... whnt is rifftlt V OlirS. We should tell them. If refused, to take steps necessary to get them One of the main complaints or tne , 1 . . 1 .. . . .1 creamery men against ine l o.MMini market is the fact that butter will lie advanced several cents a pound anil whie the Portland men arc unloading at the advanced price, the country creameries are shipping in. But. when the country creameries ask ror the au vtanced price, they, aro informed that there is no more demand tor butter ana that the market is flooded. There was .ten b comnlaint sounded by Mr. Slaughter that the three Portland imp crs had no uniform puce on premicm and there was no real market prices quoted by which to guage prices. Various opinions were expressed by the managers in session and plans will be formulated whereby it is hoped that Portland will not be able to manipulate prices to the disadvantage of the countryman.
