Score 5-0 CAR AND ENGINE COLLIDE TODAY Superintendent T, L. Billingsly, of the Salem Street Railway company, is prob ably fatally injured, and Motorman Wil liam Lott, night chief at tho car barns, is suffering severe bruises and cuts about the face and hands, as a result of u collision of Lott's car with a freight engine of the Southern Pacific company at State and Twelfth streets at 5:25 Monday morning. Motormen Henry Borsman and Arthur . Williamson, who were in the streetcar at the time of the collision, escaped without injury. Aecording to Inspector waiter Smith, Of the Salem Street Railway, who rush ed to the scene of the accident imme diately after it occurred, and took the injured men to the Salem hospital, it seems the cause of the accident was the dense fog which, prevented Motorman Lott from seeing the approaching train. Trouble had developed at the railway power plant, it is said, and Motorman Lott took a car and went to the home of Superintendent Billingsly to bring him down. On the way he picked up Motormen Williamson and Borsman. Approaching Twelfth .street, io:j made the customary stop, while train No. 54 of the Southern Pacific passed, going north. Then, it is believed, that Lott thinking the right of way clear, and unable to see the approaching freight engine through the fog, started across the tra-ck. The streetcar Btruck the freight engine in the middle, bend ing the drive rod and denting the boil er. Superintendent Billingsly, who was standing in the front vestibule of the streetcar with Motorman Lott, was thrown iu some manner under tho car, making it necessary to jack the heavy truck up to get him out. The f rout of the street car was torn away. Billingsly was hurried to the bosptta,, where it was found that his colar bone was. broken, and that several ribs were crushed in, impairing his respiration. Dr. W. H. Byrd, who is treating Billings ly( reported Monday noon that the su perintendent's condition was serious, and that several days will be necessary to ieii now serious hi-s internal injur ies are. . He was resting easily at noon. Lott, who is yet -in a dazed condition, was cut badlv about the face. After re ceiving treatment at the hospital, he was removed to his home. ; Policeman Thompson, who hurried to tho scene of the collision, made a report similar to that of Inspector Smith. As far as it known "there were no witnesses to the smash. The freight engine, in a disabled con dition, was taken to the train yards where a crew was busy making repairs Monday morning. ., . ....... .." .....-' The damaged streetcar waa replaced on its trucks and taken to the ear barns.

This is the fable of the beautiful bandit and the styltstt skirt: .. .. . Herbert Boyd was chasing his dogs down the main drag with his kick full of of kale when a soprano ".hold up your hands 'smote his tympanum. Behind the soprano was a business-like gat aud behind the gat was a dark eyed dam sel. Herbert was not a member of . the sui cide club, so he followed directions. The dark eyed damsel, aided by two male Constituents, frisked Herbert for fair and with it his roll. Herbert raised a great hue and cry, arousing tho minions of the law. , The-beautiful bandit went away from there but wa.s hampered below the waist by tho decree of fashion, which made her run like a republican in Texas. She and her entire caste were "hailed to the hoosgow." Moral: There aint any.

' '- - ABE MAETIN It's all off when- it rains on a girl these days. Our fair price committee has been organized yan' in case of a dead lock butfher Ike Mopes Is t' have th' decidin vote. thereby aid in. the building of about five cottages monthly. This, however, will onry relieve in a small measure, the. immediate necessity of construct ing houses, inthis city. "According to present ! plans ' the Oregon Pulp and Paper company, the Phez company and the Kings Products company will by the first of July next year employ awout 400 moro men than ane- now employed. This will directly and indirectly increase the population of this evty about three thousand, and tin order to house these people, it will require the 'buskhng . of about five hundred .cottages or. eight hundred apartments. These men will not be low wage earners,' but will receive from four to ten dollars a day, and will be able to pay a rental sufficient to pay the .builder of houses a fair return upon the cost of his investment. A building program upon this large scale can only be accomplished by interest ing men with capital. It can be aided in a degree by investments in the asso ciation, and by meetings which will enthuse citizens to. .individually con struct dwellings, 'but in the main tho relief must come from interesting cap italists. "I would suggest that this organiza tion appoint a committee of responsi ble business men to obtain statistics showing the probaible Increase in our population that will come by reason of1 our new industries and development of our county and city. That it obtain the price for which desirable apartment houaosites can ibo purchased, and the public cost of erecting siiitajble houses and apartments, and. that this data when collated be presented .to men of means and financial concerns, with the idea of inducing them to invost money in relieving the building situation with in thte city. My observation has boen, that capital is not lacking in any .un dertaking when you can demonstrate to , men of concerns with money, that they can make a safe investment and one which will bring a fair return."

STRIKE ENDED AND SERVICE RESUMED By Ed L Keen (United Press staff correspondent) London, Oct. 6V British railway workers were returning to their posts today after iboth the strikers and the government had made soncessitfhs yesterday- which ended this country's greatest labor walkout. On many of tho railway lines trains were in operation early today. In some quarters fear was expressed that agi tators might cause further trouble but there was no evidence of it in London where the night shifts generally re ported for work last night. With both sides claiming victory, tho average Briton wa concerned chiefly with the simple fact that a settlement had been reached. 'Kegnrdless of the partisan claims of victory, the Briton recognizes general ly that both sides conceded some points and granted some compromise. Both retained enough to "save their faces" and both were plainly conscious of the terrible possibiliities involved in a fail ure to settle the issue. Under the terms of the settlement; wages will remain at their present lev- ; (Continued on page two) PREVENT R OTS DECLARE The motion to adopt a resolution ask- ing senate ratification of the peaee trea ty met much protest and gave rise t heated discussion of the much dlsenssed document, In connection with this, Bishop Hugh es, presiding said: , "Is think it, is wrong for the confer ence of the Methodist Episcopal church to urge the ratification of the most in iquitioua thing in the history of tho world, I don 't mean the lcaguo of na tions. I don't mean the treaty with tho nations with which we hav warred. I am sure this conference does not want to underwrite th disgraceful Shantung affair! ' . K'l would not have it known," Bishop Hughes continued, "thn,t I presided at a conference that approver such - a shameful thing. . And I would not have it known that I am in favor of a treaty mado in secrecy, and in favor of at Oriental nation." - This gave rise to a demand for a re&o lution urging disregard to that distaste ful provision. Someone suggested that it bo takon up later. "The Hme to scttlo it is right now," replied Bishop Hughes firmly. "And there is no better place to settle it than right in the United States senate where it now lies.' And I'll wager that th treaty will be ratified, omitting the Shantung provision, and not affeettnjr, the sterling qualities of the league of nations." ,: ,; ' "It is not the place of this confer ence to take up matters of political Im portance only," someone in the throng said. . j' .

"This is not a matter of political ex pediency," Bishop Hughes -eiplamra with emphasis. f'Thls is a matter of moral expediency, affecting the Mires, yes, and souls of 37,000 persons, and this ehurch could not express itself in greater matter. " Continuing, Bishop Hughes declared. . "This conference, I am sure, will ex press itself for the league nf . nations. But we cannot, as ministers of God, ask the United States senate, or any other body, to ratify nnv provision that is tn iquitious, nnd recognized by ill Ameri cans as iniquitous. " .
