(By Associated Press.)
EDINBURU, Nov, 22. With the
surrender of a large part of the sur
face fleet yesterday, Germany as na
val power ceased to exist. The turn
ing over of twenty-two dreadnaughts
andl cruiBers to the victors was some
thing unprecedented In the history o,
nations and naval operations. - The
surrender was on a gigantic scale.
and to any nationality but tho Ger
mans, It is believed, would have been
an unendurable humiliation. United
States and allied war ships steamed
out under full head, decks stripped
and gun crews standing by, with ev
ery man at his post, in order to avoid
disastrous results should the Ger
mans show treachery. The prepara
tions for a fight were needless, as It
proved, the enemy ships meekly sub
mitting to the capitulation. - A Uni
ted States naval officer who witness
od Che surrender from the deck of an
American ship, astonished! beyond
measure at the spectacle of a power
ful navy that'had once boasted of
ability to cope with all comers giv
ing up without a show of resistance,
exclaimed: "Even the .poor old Span
iards, knowing that they had no pos
sible chance, came out of Santiago
Harbor and went down to defeat like
brave men, but these Germane nn
blushingly surrender like a set of
craven cowards." ,

Some alarm Arts felt htls morning,
when It became noised) about that
several new cases of influenza had
developed during yesterday and last
night, and coupled with the death of
Mr. Bennett last evening, caused con
siderable aprenension. ' Following a
conference of the health officers with
Mayor Stewart, It was deemed un
necessary to place a ban upon the
city, audi believing that a sane course
should be followed the officials de
termined to discourage the practice
of public funerals, particularly where
death from Influenza has occurred,
and to close public dances. In ac
cordance with this conclusion the fol
lowing statement was Isued.
Owing to a slight increase in the
number of cases of Influenza during
the last 24 hourB, the city authorities
ifeel It axrVisable to close all dance
halls. D. J. STEW-ART, Mayor

The Presbyterian Aid Society held
their regular bi-monthly meeting at
the church parlors yesterday after
noon. A very Interesting program
was rendered of the following num-
berB: Instrumental solo,: Mrs. Mario
Flint, Vocal solo; Mrs. w. w. Asn
croft and a clever original poem by
Mrs. Smlck. Rev. Quick gave an in
spiring talk on the reconstruction
work of the church. Rev. Quick said
that it was now necessary that the
church be made over to meet the de
mands of the boys who are returning
to ub from over the seas. He said
that it was mp to the church members
to cease all hipocrlsy and to live to
the fullest interests of the church in
order that these boys, who have been
fighting for the 'holiest of causes
might not find the church wanting in
the respect of living uin to the teach
ings of Christ. 1
At the conclusion of the program,
refreshments were served and a so
cial time enjoyed.

While the national administration
is busy boosting freight and express

effort to prevent a natural return to
normal conditions, manufacturers are
seeing, the light and meeting the
emergency with keen buslnss intui

ing that the war is over, and that

ing to their old positions, that work

nufacturing business on a level foot
ing, products must be turned out at
figures that will commend them to
the buying public, automobile con
cerns, probably in a -better position
than any other to know where to
check the upward tendency, are be
ginning to cut war-time prices. The
very first automobile manufacturers
to throw off the yoke of constantly
advancing schedftilcs are the Cadallao"
and Chevrolet people. Announcement
today by the Motor Shop, of this city,
who handle tho agency for these ma
chines, that the former company had
lopped off in even $300 at one stroke
from their war-time prices on cars,
and that the Chevrolet people havo
reduced the price on that car $130
from the figures that have prevailed
for a year, is an indication that the
reconstruction proccs has begun.

the county generally, where no war
industries are situated, the people
are In a better positlen to know and

where industrial plants enjoy, the j

the fact that a majority of the peo

these unnatural conditions are work
ing a hardship upon the public, so
that any movement looking toward
a return to a sane plane Ib received
with Intense satisfaction.

Douglas County's annual turkey
harvest is in-full blast today, and the
birds are coming in satisfactorily, bo
the buyers say. Prices ranee around
35 cents per pound for prime birds,
with a discount of five and six cents
per ipoumd) for Inferior specimens.
The turkeys offered are generally In
fine condition, and the farmers
realize handsomely for tholr work In
thiB line of endeavor. A visit to the
two principal bylng marts late today
Indicated that probably not less thnn
10,000 turkeys will he shinned by
the George Kohlhagen market and
tho Peoples Supply Co., most of tho
stock going north to tho Portland
and Seattle markets. At Oakland
the E. C. Young Company Ib also buy
ing, as they have always done, and
doubtless will handle a many tur
keys as either of the Roseburg firms.
Presuming that these three buyers
will handle a total of 46,000 birds,
and that the average weight Is 12
pounds. It Is easy to calculnto some
where near the amount of cash that
was put In circulation among farmers
and ipoultry ralaerB in Roseburg and
Oakland today. Twelve ipounds Is a
low average for the birds sold here
today, hut on that basis 180,000
pounds of turkeyo changed "hands. At
a pried of 3B eenln per pound the
farmers received something like $03,-
000 for their sales, and this sum re
presents only about 70 to 76 per
cent of the total sale for the county,
r-s several other small buyers were In
the field. It Is safe to assume that
the sales of Douglas county Thanks
giving turkeys for this year will
range around the $75,000 mark.

After the war, what? This question
is being asked on all corners: Cities
which have enjoyed an unusual time
of prosperity on account of war in

the question, realizing that the pe
riod of reconstruction Is fraught with
great possibilities, as well ae dangerB.

of Portland has set In motion a plan
to unite the Commercial bodies, of
the entire State under one head, that
there may be a combined effort to

few years, and: while this combined
effort may iprove to be -wise, yet each
community must also, be awake to
its own Interests, and put forth every
legitimate effort to secure their full
snare of the prosperity which Is
surely coining to the Pacific north
west. The un-developed resources of
Oregon are well "known to men of
wealth, and already .there Is a quiet
search being made by large interests
looking for the best fields for de

How the Americans took any of
the wooded heights Ib a puzzle, but
the Btory.ot the seizure of the Cote
de Chatillon, one of the finest Ofiiera
tlons the American forcer have ac-: -'
conrplished, Ib Illustrative not only
of their deathless valour, but also of
the grim tenacity : with which the :
Germans are holding on. This hill
Is 820 feet high. Thickly clustered
with trees and rising steeply It was
an ideal position for idiefenBe. . The
Americans on Wednesday, attempted
Its c vpture. : Traversing Its slopes -yard
by yard, they found that the
Germans had constructed a, machine
gun fortress on the height, and every
minute of tho 40 hours they spent
there a merciless rain of lead poured ' '
Into them from all sides. : A- 77 gun
was ensconced on the summit of the
height andl fired steadily on' the as-
sending Americans i.; ,. - 1
Slowly the Americans, crawling on
their stomachs, faced that mussed
llro of machine-guns and rifles, ac
companied by the ceaseleBs crack of
turstlng1,hrafpnel and the ' roar of '
hand grenades. It was deadly work.
The trees were all wired . together, 1
making an almc;t ImpoBlble barrier,
Volunteers faced the fire to cut lines
through this -.belt of wire. . But It;
was decided! Instead to bring up
Stokes mortars. Through dreary
mud and depressing rain the Ameri
cans dragged "these up to their posl
Mons and turned thorn on the Ger
mans. . .
Soon thero was consternation -imong
the enemy. The lire of tfhe
mortars, converting the wholo side
'nto a mass of Bhambled earth and
rion 1 brought out several prisoners,
who sought to surrender. But most
it the Germans contlnuod to fight.
'Jour after hour went by and! brought
10 cessation to the grinding and mer
dleos struggle. , Yard after yard, the
merlcnns gained, stopping not for
the darkness of the night, but push
ing on slowly rnd determinedly.
At last tho greater part of the
llopes were gained, the wire ipene
'.rated, and all that remained wns a
'iand-to-hand fight As the enemy's
machine-guns etopped' firing, ' out
ame the bayonet, and, with a spring ,
-nd a wild hurrah, the Americans fell
ipon the enemy. But the Germans
were brave men. Standing and kneel
ing at their guns, they fought to the
last. Many were found dead on their
?uns the following day.
The prisoners at the rear were
astonished to. and. that the Amorl- -ans
looked qulto humane, and, all -they
talked about was the absolutely
wild men with fierce 'faces - whom
thoy hurt seen behind a bayonet. It
was a glorious American victory.
Such a flcht Is indicative of the spirit
of both the Americans and the Ger
mans. The Germans know that their
failure to hold the Americans means
the (tutting of one of the most lm- -lortant
railroad systems of the Ger
man Army and one of -the two great
avenues of retreat.
