The result was a wavering market of very tamo aspect, with prices narrow and irregular at the opening, followed by a brief period of fruitless, there after sellng down a point or so in the case of the Standard industrials and in the case of certain specialties like Bethlehem Steel Ji stock, United States Industrial Alcohol, Central Leather, 2 or 3 points or more. At mid-day there was a general stiffening which left prices not far from the level of the previous closing, but business became lighter, indicating that the supply f stocks was limited when it came to short covering or profit-taking. The steel stocks were heavy through out and at intervals distinctly weak, particularly United States and Bethle hem, because of Hie tax outlook for those companies as suggested in Judge Gary's statement. The railroad list was quiet in the j main, but there were moments of com ; parative animation under the leader i ship of Union Pacific and Reading, both of which advanced more than a point.- Bonds were quiet and firm. Money rates were unchanged.

Three Remonstrances Against Abolishing Office of Police Matron One of the important things coining before the Salem council last night was! an ordinance introduced by Council-' man Unruh allowing the Salem street j railway system to make a change in 1 the kind of cars that will be run over i the streets. The change contemplated j is from the double truck style of carl to the single truck, which is consider ably lighter. This type of car is known! as the Forney car and is in use in So-j attle and llellingham, Washington. Thei difference between the double trucks' and the single trucks is a matter ot j much weight, as the latter are about; 14,000 pounds and the former -to.OOO. 1 There are six single truck cars now i in ubo under special authority on the Salem lines. The ordinance granting authority to' make the change was introduced last night, and on explanation of Superin tendent liillingslov that it was neces sary to have immediate action on ac count of the difficulty in getting ship ments from the east, the rules were suspended and the measure brought to a final vote and passed. In the discussion concerning whether or not the ordinance should come to a vote at this time, Mayor Keyes was in favor of postponing and investigat ing the franchise provisions. Council man Unruh insisted that the vote be taken and after some parliamentary tactics this was done. About Police Matron Three different remonstrances a gainst the ordinance introduced by Councilman Unruh to abolish the office of police matron in the city of Salem were read. One of the remonstrances presented contained the names of about 400 Salem citizens who expressed them selves much in favor of retaining the office. The second remonstrance was presented on the part of the ministers of the city, and the third by the wo men of the W. C. T. U., who expressed themselves as being in favor of the of tieo being maintained. It was shown also that the public in general is tak ing the matter up and that when the ordinance comes up it will bo hard fought from start to finish. The matter of the Twelfth street paving cases was brought up and City Attorney Macy gavo notice that he intended to secure a rehearing of the case, which was decided against the city in favor of the property owners j who objected to the assessments. The! supreme court decided that the bids had not been advertised according to the provision of the charter and were therefore not legal. As a result of this decision, if it stands finally, the city will be compelled to repay the assess ments already received from property holders on that streets. It was inti mated that the question Would be brought up at the next city election in the form of an initiative 'measure to repay to all property holders in the jcity assessments made for street nu ' proveinents. This would mean a-repayment of about $1,500,000. To Have Street Signs Bids , were opened last night for street, signs and the bid of Ilodsou Freenaughty of Portland, were accept ed. The signs are to be furnished at sixty five cents each. The council de cided to purchase 250 of these cigns al though the street committee recom mended the purchase of wooden signs. To be in line with other cities of the country in requiring that all busi ness houses fly the American flag, Councilman. Jones uskod that the or dinance committee be instructed to draw up nn ordinance providing for the flying of such flags. It was the opinion of Mayor Keveg and City Attorney M'uc.y that such an ordinance would be unconstitutional. However, they sug gested that a resolution might prove us effective. Councilman .Tones agreed that if a resolution would be as effect ive he was willing to let it go at that. The motion passed with only thrco dis senting votes. A special committee composed ot" Councilmcn Wilson, Klliott and L'nruh was appointed to investigate the pur chase of a rock crusher for crushing rock required for street work. Cement Bids A Tie Four Salem firms submitted equal bids to furnish the city with cement and the city recorder was instructed to enter into a contract, with each. Insructiou to go uhend with the con struction of a pile bridge over Mill Creek on Mouth Capital street was giv en. The bridge is located between Mill and Oak streets. A petition from the parent-teacher cir.de of the Lincoln school requested that the council take action in quar antining cases of whooping cough. The petition was referred to the ordinance committee. The ordinance prohibiting the use of the national anthem, "The Star Spang led Banner," in medleys or parodies was passed by the council. The ordinance requiring a license fee of $10 a year from garbage collectors was passed. The money derived from the licenses ifoes to maintain a city j dumping ground.

ALKALI IN SOAP BAD FOR THE HAIR sS Soap should bo used very carefully, if you want to keep your imir looking its best. Most soaps and prepared sham poos contain too much alkali. This dries the scalp, makes the hair brittle, ami ruins it. The best thing for steady use it just ordinary mulsified cocoa nut oil (which is pure mid greaseless), and is better than tho most expensive soap or any thing else you eauuse. One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanso the hair, and scalp thoroughly. "iSinipl.y moisten the hair with water and rub it in. It makes an abundance of rich. creamy lather, which rinses out easily, removing every particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves the scalp soft, and the hair fine and silky, bright, lustrous, fluffy and easy to manage. You can get mulsified cocoanut oil nt any pharmacy, its verv cheap, and a few ounces will supply every member of the family for months.
