the federal government, 1 desire to wel- i
come you upou entering on your ilelib-i
erations. A bill concerning the peace
footing of the army, which was sub
mitted to the former reichstag, to my
regret did not find approval. In the
face of the development of military in
stitutions, the rejection of the army bill
was bound to lead to the resolution to
dissolve the reichstag and order new
elections. Since the introduction of the
bill, the political situation in Europe
lias experienced no chamre. The rela
tions of the empire with other powers
jre thoroughly friendly and free from all
clouds. The projwrtion of Germany's
organised military strength has, how
ever, cbanired for the worse during the
past year when compared with that of
our neighbors. If already Germany's
geographical position and historical de
velopments hiy upon us the duty to
maintain a relatively strong army, then
further increase in the military
strength or the empire becomes a forci
ble necessity to satisfy the duties laid
upon me by the constitution. I con
sider that nil means at our dis
posal must be utilized in order to
establish au effective defense of the
Fatherland. You will receive immedi
ately a new bill regarding the peace
footing of the army, in which there will
be taken into account as far as possible
certain desires expressed during the dis
cussion of the lale bill. Consequently,
diminished demands are made upon the
personal capacity and taxbearing power
? .the people as fur as possible without
- eitUuueering the efficiency of the army.
-The empire's interest requires, especi-
tsJjy in view of the end of the septenate
next spring, that the bill be passed with
the utmost dispatch so that the new
recruit calls may be made in the autumn
- on the new basis. Delay would lnnn-
- ence most unfavorably our strength for
. jnore jLts&n 20 years.
-tentiemcn, with a great sacrifice
Germany bai been united in one em
pire. The nation honors most those
who staked their blood or property on
this work which led the Fatherland to
prosperity. To safeiy guard the glori
ous achievement with which God has
blessed as in oar battle for independ
ence is our most sacred duty. This
duty we can only fulfill if we make our
selves strong enough to remain a surety
for Europe's peace. I trust you will not
fail to give me and my confederates your
patriotic sacrifices and willing supprrt
in striving for these aims."
The Bavarian minister called for three
cheers for the emperor and they were
given with a hearty good will. The uni
form worn by the emperor was that of a
guarde du corps. The members of tue
eocial-democratic and radical people's
party and some anti-Semites were not
present. Most of the members of the
center or Catholic party were present and
there was a full attendance of the gov

vel's death which occurred late Monday
night, though expected, was a severe
shock to the community in which he
has lived for many years. He died in
; great agony, his strength fighting off the
inevitable to the last moment. For the
last four years the captain has led a very
quiet life. He has only been seen on
the streets occasionally, visiting his of-
j fice and First National hank, of which
j he was president. The Flavel rent roll

A KHOLITIOS IX GREECE.

Pabih, July 4. The startling news
lias been received here that a revolution
iias occurred in Greece, that King
George has abdicated, and that the peo
ple of Athens, backed by the soldiery,
have proclaimed Greece a republic.
The event was so sudden and unex
pected that the particulars of it are as
yet but rumors. No official verification
of it can be obtained at this hour, but
considering the dissatisfaction preva
lent for some time, and the impulsive
character of the people, It is not re
garded as improbable. A cablegram
similar to the above was received in
this city by a prominent Greek. Sev
eral Greeks were seen in regard to it,
bat they bad no information to give.
While surprised, they thought it not
improbable. Their countrymen, they
hay, have long been hoping and planning
to make their country an independent

crime was ten years. The sentence

Miller will take the prisoner to Salem
on tomorrow morning's local train.
HAZERS INDKK AKKE.1T
Marking th Fae of Several
low (Undents with Cauntle.
Toledo, Ohio, July 5. The recent
hazing of students at Delaware College
has resulted in suits for damages in the
common pleas court of Delaware county.
On April 20th several of the students
were caught by older boys, taken to a
room, and there bound with cords.
Some kind of corrosive or caustic was
used with which to tattoo the faces.
Lines were drawn which made the boys
look like Fiji Islanders or American sav
ages. The marks can never be effaced.
Those who were charged with having
performed the outrages were arrested
for assault and battery. After the
cases were gotten ready for trial a settle
ment was effected, the defendants to pay
the costs and attorney fees. The fees
have not been paid, and the attorneys
have begun to get anxious for their pay.
The hazers would not pay it, and the
victims said they must, or stand trial for
damages for $10,000 each.
The result is that four suits have been
filed for that amount, each entitled as
follows: I'ercival H. Wilson versus
lialph Harrold, I'ete Adams, Holway
Farrar, Wilber E. Moorman, William H.
Innis, Harry D. Belt. Walter E. Evars,
Charles W. Perellis and Calviu S.
Welch ; Joseph E. Kogers versus same ;
Orland C. Harn versus same, and Milton
W. Brown versus same. The petitions
allege that the victims are forever dis
figured, that they will forever be sick,
sore aad lame, and add that the hazers
ended the cruelty by spanking them
with red-hot shovels.
fcUMi Farmer Buffering.
Topeka, Kan., July 5. The gravity of
the condition of the farmers of western
Kansas continues to grow more serious.
Unless they are soon provided with sub
stantial aid the country will be deserted
by those able to get away, while those
compelled to remain will suffer for the
necessaries of life. A call has been made
for a convention of representatives
throughout the stricken counties to meet
at Leoti, Wichita county, to discuss some
plan for providing soed wheat.
Governor Lewclling has been imjxir
tuned to call an extra session of the
legislature to take action for the relief of
the farmer of the western part of the
state, who have no seed wheat on account
pf drouth. He says the exigencies of the
case are not great enough to warrant
such a coarse. While there is a wheat
failure, the corn prospect was never I
not be found, and it was correctly sur
mised that she had fallen into the river
and had been carried down stream by
the current, which is very rapid at this
point. Boats were procured at once,
and by means of lanterns the river was
thoroughly searched. An hour later
Charles Smith and Fhilo Tatro found
the bodv thrown upon the rocks at the
dam 300 yards below the scene of the
accident, life being quite extinct when
found. The body was carried at once to
the Gladstone depot, where an exami
nation showed an abrasion and bruise
over the right eye and temple, and a
terrible wound on the top of the head,
where the skull bad teen laid bare over
a space not less than four inches square.
The afflicted family has lived in this
community since last winter, having
moved here from some place in Wash

of the Mormons to buy the next con

Greece's King II Not Abdicated.
Losoox, July 5. It is reported from
the United States that King George of
Greece has abdicated and a republic has
been proclaimed. The Greek consul
general here pronounces the report pre

Denver, July 4. At Cripple Creek,

first time during this year in the pages
of the Coamoolitan. Among the ar

will be triple frontispieces by Hocheg

E ABTEBN OUKOON.
Weather; Since June 30th, warmer
weather has prevailed.
Crops : Bain is badly needed for the
cereal crops, especially for that sown in
spring plowed land. Only in unusually
favored years does the cereal crop yield
any good crop when it is sown in spring
plowed land. The summer fallow and
fall sown grain is most promising, and
will not be injured by the absence of
rain ; but it would be materially bene
fitted by rain. The present outlook
indicates only a fair wheat crop in
Wasco, Gilliam, Morrow and Baker
counties; in all the counties, however,
the late spring sown will not make one
half a crop, and much of it will most
likely be cot for hay unless a good
heavy ram should occur toon. The
fruit prospects are good in Union county,
and in the Snake river country ; they are
fair in the other sections. Haying is
generally in progress and good yields
are reported. Apparently the climate
conditions have been favorable to the
cereal crop, yet many of the correspond
ents report crops not up to the average.
Livers: The warmer weather is caus
ing the snow to melt more rapidly ; but
the major portion hits already been
melted so that there is no longer danger
