I'orced to Rebuild Railway
to Follow Enemy.
PETROGRAD, Nov. 16. A statement
received from the general eta.it today
"After our successful fighting In Oc
tober along: the roads to Warsaw and
Ivangrorod, the enemy began retreating
toward his frontier, destroying the
roads and railroads. He set on fire the
railroad stations and freight sheds, tore
up switches and destroyed the. reser
voirs and water pipes. At some points
on the railroad he blew up the rails
and their fastenings, thus 'rendering
necessary the use of new rails when re
pairing the tracks.
"In addition all bridges and aque
ducts, even the smallest, were dam
aged In such a way as to make repairs
impossible, rendering their rebuilding
necessary. Telegraph poles were felled,
wires cut and insulators destroyed.
Damage Impedes Advance.
"All this damage seriously Impeded
our advance and enabled the enemy on
the left bank of the Vistula to escape
outside of our field of action and to get
near his territory.
"Taking advantage of this and their
complete railway system, the Germans
rapidly began to send their troops to
the north In order to accumulate im
portant forces against our wing.
"Their concentration in that region
was covered by a large body of cavalry
brought from the west and partly sup
ported by Austrian cavalry.
German Offensive Fails.
"Towards the middle of November
the German offensive was renewed be
tween the Vistula and Warthe Rivers.
This resulted in fighting, which is still
going on in front of dock, Lentchitsa
"In Eastern Prussia, In the region of
Stalluponen, the enemy tried by means
of separate bodies of troops to adopt
the offensive, but he failed and re
treated. "In the region of Soldau and Neiden
burg the battle continues. We main
tain our offensive toward Cracow and
the front of Galloia.
"The attempts of the Austriana to
make a stand on our road have been
In vain. In the fighting of November

COSSACK CHARGE BRILLIAXT
Russians at GoIdanSweep All Before
Them In Face or Big Odds.
LONDON, 1451 A. M.. Nov. 17. A dis
patch to Reuter's Telegram Company
from Petrograd says:
"The military skill of the Russian
army was well illustrated in the cap
ture of Goldap, some SO miles south of
Oumblnnen. in East Prussia. A strong
Russian advance guard pushed toward
Goldap after eight days of continuous
fighting at Bakalarzevo and took the
Germans by surprise. The Russians
were within two miles of Goldap before
a German aeroplane discovered their
presence and directed the German artll-
lery fire against them.
"The Russian line of advance lay be
tween a wooded elevation and the main
road, both of which were occupied by
"Four Russian guns swept the road
and after a quarter of an hour Cos
eacks charged brilliantly, killing or
wounding 200 Germans. Simultaneous
ly Russian dragoons and horse artil
lery galloped around the. hill on the
German flank and rear in order to cut
off the German retreat.
"This hill was strongly held by in
fantry, who were well entrenched. A
frontal attack theoretically was impos
sible, but nevertheless the Russians
carried it out. The heavy rains had
converted the guard into a quagmire.
Moreover, there were concealed holes
and pitfalls everywhere in which steel
pointed stakes were embedded, and also
many rows of barbed wire entangle
"In the face of the German volleys
the Cossacks crept up the hill firing
their rifles almost continuously and
held their horses by a single rein. The
Cossacks did not mount until within
300 yards of the enemy's position. Then
they swept irresistibly across the en
trenchments. "In 30 minutes all the Germans had
fled under the raking fire of the Rus
sian guns, and were followed by charg-
ing Cossacks and dragoons."
RUSSIANS AT ERZERUM QUIT
Heavy Guns and Fresh Troops Give
Turks Success at Fortress.
LONDON, Nov. 17. The Petrograd
correspondent of the Morning Post
"The Russians have not succeeded in
marching on to attack the formidable
obstacles of the Deve-Boyun range,
which protects the approach to Erze
rum. The Turks brought up from
Erzerum, from Trebizond and from
Oryskala such large reinforcements,
with heavy guns, as to compel the, Rus
sians already occupying Koprukuie to
"Whether or not the retirement from
positions secured after heavy fighting
must be reckoned as a Turkish success
depends upon locar factors of which
we have no knowledge.

frontal assault upon a - fortress ex
tremely strong by nature and protected
by a natural barrier."

handed down by Judge Bean in the

The land, company, said to be part

ering a stretch.. of about three miles

up the canyor Valine Deschutes River.
The decree, wnicn was completely in

The handing down of the decree ter
minated an old controversy originat
ing in 1909. When the Deschutes line
of the O.-W. R. & N. Co. was built, an
agreement was reached with the heirs
of the Shearer estate, which owned
the right of way needed, that if the
track was bulit 60 feet up from the
average height of water in the river,
the right of way could be had for
$1000. The land company had an op
tion on the Shearer land, which It took
up, and the railroad claimed that be
fore it built it showed the land com
pany the profile of the proposed grade,
and that the land company acquiesced.
Later the land company elalmed that
the track would have to be .built high
er up, so that a dam 60 feet high could
be put In. Such a -dam would have
flooded the tracks as built.

and Mrs, Victor E. Innes, who were re

charges of larceny after trust, requisi

tonight to resist extradition. They se
cured a habeas corpus writ, which was
made returnable Wednesday.
In their application the Inneses ask
that they be released from custody on
the ground that the charge in Atlanta
is without foundation and untrue and
also because the requisition was not
signed by Governor Colquitt in person.
The Innesses were held here on
charges of murder in connection with

Captain Louis M. Lang Pop
ular With Alt Elements,
Whose Hopes Are Raised.
ARMY RECORD BRILLIANT
Philippine Service- Gives Acquaint
ance With Prison Work,, but
Appointee Says He Will Not
Slake Policy Changes.
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 18. (Special.)
Although as unexpected as a bombshell.
Mayor Gill's appointment of Louis M.
Lang, an- ex-Army Captain and veteran
of the Spanish War, as chief of police
to succeed Austin E. Griffiths, is
proving popular in Seattle today. After
Griffiths, a Progressive, who was beat
en badly in the Congressional election
by Representative Will E. Humphrey,
Republican, tendered his resignation,
speculation was rife as to his successor
and a wide range of names was select
ed, in none of which figured Captain
Lang. He was a "dark horse." In fact
Gill first met Lang at his inauguration
as Mayor last March.
When the appointment was an
nounced every one asked who is Lang?
The Inquirers soon were supplied with
statistical information such as the fact
that he was 48 years old, a native of
Buffalo, N. Y., entered the National
Guard 'when 21, was commissioned a
captain by Governor Frank Black In
the 202d New York Volunteers, was
with the f lrslf troops that entered Ha
vana, had lively fighting experience and
administrative jobs in the Philippines,
was a general contractor here, married.
had no children and lived at 323 Thir
teenth avenue North. The first line on
him developed when it developed his
wife was the ex-president of one of the
leading women's clubs and still active
in club work.
Popularity Astonnds Officials.
The most surprising thing about the
appointment ia its popularity with the
so-called liberal element. Although there
seems no basis at all to believe that
any of the vigor of the Griffiths ad
ministration will be relaxed, the preva
lent feeling down town is hopefulness
and an impression "that It might be
worse. Maybe the liberals are doomed
to be disappointed.
When Gill was running for re-elec
tion the same liberals had the notion
that if he were successful he would
open the town. He was successful.
but their hopes were dashed to the
ground, for he put in the seat of the
Chief of Police a high-minded man of
somewhat idealistic tendency, leader In
humanitarian and welfare work and an
ardent advocate of police efficiency.
The feeling seems to have no foun
dation that Lang ' will do anything
other than maintain the present policy,
but it exists just the same. Lang's
own statements leave no room for
kdoubt and indicate crushed hopes for
Captain Lang today announced that
he doesn't claim to have worked out all
the problems of the police and he has
no intention of starting off on his po
sition with anything new and start
ling. Former Policy Indorsed.
"There will be no change from the
policy of Chief Griffiths." he said. "1
have no doubt that he started some
things which are as yet uncompleted
and I'll try to put them through. At
any rate I am going to give the work
the best that Is In me.
Captain Lang strikes one as a pretty
cheerful individual, anyway. He Is 48
years old now, and, although he doesn't
look a day older, there are lots of lines
in his face. It is a strong face, of a
man used to command and to put things
through. There Isn't one mark of a
grouch, however. He has a cordial
hand-clasp, a free, unaffected manner
of greeting, and the initial cordiality
lasts. He is used to comradeship and
it is evident he enjoys it. '
He already has had some police ex
perience, although under vastly dif
ferent conditions than those which will
confront him here. While he was in
Cuba with the Army he was Provost
Marshal, and in the Philippines, in the
province of Occidental Negros, he was
on the Commission of three which had
charge of the policing of the district.
In his division was one of the prisons
of the island.
. Prison Work Not New.
"I fell heir to 387 prisoners when I
went into office,'' he said. "Judge Nor
ris and I started to clean it out. and,
let me tell you, we found conditions
something terrible. Some of tbe pris
oners were hand-me-downs from the
Spanish, others from the rebel govern
ment, some from the military and some
were politicals. In many cases we
couldn't eVen find any record of their
presence there, and in many we couldn't
discover the reason for Imprisonment.
When we had finished our work we
found we had out of the 387 prisoners
Just 110 legally behind the bare."
Captain Lang Is a Republican, and
in Seattle has been identified with
large contractors and the Puget Sound
Traction, Light & Power Company, the
Stone & Webster Interests. His ap
pointment was recommended by Gen
eral W. W. Robinson, Jr., U. S. A., re
tired, and others.

Letters to Willamette Valley Farmers
L'rge Grocery Gifts to Aid in Stock
ing New Department.
Announcement by Secretary V. R.
Manning, of the Associated Charities,
that the charities Is to establish a gro
cery department at Its headquarters at
411 Commercial block, elicited an imme
diate response from charitable citizens
f Portland, and already donations to
the new department are being received.
Mr. Manning believes that the new
arrangement will prove of enormous
value In handling the many emergency
cases that are appealing to the Chari
ties as the Winter season comes on.
Early yesterday A. T. Marian tele
phoned In the first donation to the gro
cery department, a load of potatoes,
and shortly afterwards' the Smith
Market notified Mr. Manning that it
would donate 10 ducks. Other gifts
were received during the day, and, in
a short time the department will be in
fair stock for a beginning. Among the
articles needed in large or small quan
tities are coffee, sugar, lard, flour, oat
meal, beans and butter.
Appeals to the Charities from desti
tute cases are increasing at the rate of
from 50 to 70 a week, their demands
ranging all the way from shoes to rent
money or work.
One man called yesterday seeking
employment. His rent is three months
in arrears, and he has a wife and three
children to support. Another applicant
for work was a skilled machinist who
has come recently from Pennsylvania.
He has a wife and four children. Rent
and groceries are needed at once, but
the man particularly desires employ
ment so that he may be able to take
care of himself and his family.
A young married couple came in the
line of applicants. The young man has
been out of employment for months,
and is eager to do anything that he
can find to do. They will be turned out
of their house unless they are able to
secure rent money at once.
An Invalid mother who has been left
by her husband with one child to sup
port came asking for a wheeled chair,
so tftat she might be able to get about
the house and attend' to such work as
she has to do.
The Charities has sent letters to
many of the farmers In the Willamette
Valley asking them to assist with dona
tions in the stocking ot the grocery de
partment, and Mr. Manning hopes by
next week to have the store running
well enough to meet much of the de
mand for emergency help that comes.

Every voter In Oregon may be re

that the amendment passed at the re

District Attorney Evans declared
yesterday that he can see no way by

to the grand jury is sufficient to cause

City Attorney La Roche, who obtained
the evidence in the cases at the request
of the City Council.
Mr. La Roche says many names on
the petitions are forgeries. Page after
page of the petitions, Mr.- La Roche
says, is in the same handwriting, indi

shown by the fact that many- of the
addresses given areflctitious, there be

Mr. La Roche says members of the
Police Bureau have investigated the pe
titions extensively and report numer-'
ous forgeries, fraudulent signatures,
fictitious names and addresses and mis
representations. In one case it is said
the name of a woman was signed by
her small daughter at the instigation
of a petition-circulator.
