Licutenant-Gcncral Padorna, Italian
chief of staff, is attempting to carry
out a. well-def incd movement for the
occupation of the important points In
the Alps, along the Gludicarle chain
of the Less in I Mountains, the Supana

This maneuver, if accomplished,
would place tho Italians in an advan

for tho purpose of Invading Italy. It

Rhodes Is about 300 miles south of
the Dardanelles. No official report has

At the conclusion of peace between
Italy and Turkey a treaty was signed
in which Italy engaged to restore to
Turkey the Aegean Islands, including
Rhodes, occupied by her troops, but on
the condition that a general amnesty
be granted to their Inhabitants, that
local autonomy be respected and that
public liberty be guaranteed.
If Turkey failed to fulfill these con
ditions Italy reserved to herself the
right of taking action against the
I'orte, and the islands were not to be
restored until the agreement respecting
this was carried out.

History Will Sliow, SSajs Chancellor,
Whether Entente Was "Content
With Blandishments Alone."
BF.RL1N, via London, May 2S. Dr.
Von Bethmann-Hollweg, the German
imperial chancellor, speaking in the
Reichstag today on Italy's entrance
into the war, said:
"Italy has now inscribed in the book
of the world's history, in letters of
blood which will never fail, her viola
tion of faith. Nobody threatened
Italy neither Austria-Hungary nor
Germany. Whether the triple entente
was content with blandishments alone,
history will show later.
"Without a drop of blood flowing,
or the life of a single Italian being
endangered. Italy could have secured
the long list of concessions which I
recently read to the House territory
in Tyrol and on the Izonzo as far as
Italian speech is heard, satisfaction of
her national aspirations in Trieste, a
free hand in. Albania and a valuable
part of Avlona.
' We left Rome in no doubt that an
Italian attack on the Austro-Hungariah
troops would also strike the German
Iroops. The Italian manifesto of war,
which conceals an uneasy conscience
behind veiled phrases, does not give
an explanation of which offers were
refused. They were too shy, perhaps,
to say openly what was spread abroad
as tho pretext, that the Austrian offer
caine too late and could not be trusted.
"Italian statesmen have no right to
measure the trustworthiness of other
nations in the same proportion as they
measured their own loyalty to a
MONKEY'S PRANK COSTLY
Owner of Superficially Cultured An

LOS ANGELES. May 28. Two thou
sand dollars' damages for the attacks
made on them by "Charlie Fuller," an
educated chimpanzee, were awarded
today to Mrs. Lillian Lindley and her
little daughter, Miriam. E. W. Knowl
ton, a Pasadena millionaire, owner of
the animal, was defendant.
Mrs. Lindley testified that the chim
panzee entered her home through an
open window, tore little Miriam from
her arms and threw her on the floor.
With the aid of a pet dog, Mrs. Lind
ley said, she finally rescued the lit
tle girl and locked "Charlie" in a closet.
Ivnowlton declared his chlmpansee,
which wears clones, smokes cigarettes
and carries a cane, meant no harm to
the child. Tho court ruled that Mr.
Fuller's culture was superficial.
ROME FEARS AIR RAIDS
Italian Capital Makes Preparations
to Repel Invasion.
ROME, via Paris, May 28. It being
believed that Austrian aeroplanes may
appear over Rome, special measures of
protection have been adopted. In the
first place, a close watch is to be kept
along the Adriatic coast. Equal vigi
lance w.Ill be exercised on the crest of
the Apennines, while nearer Rome ob
servation posts are to be established at
points of vantage.
Stations for Italian aeroplanes have
been established at Centocllle, on the
Appian Way, and at Lake Bracciano,
about 25 miles from the capital.
From these points aeroplanes are
ready to start at a moment's notice to
engage airships from Austria.

MEDFORD., Or.. May 28. (Special.)
Every boy in the graduating- class
of the Medrord High School was or
dered yesterday by Police Judge Gay
to pull weeds in city parking strips
until next Monday to expiate for a
midnight "raid on business house signs
last Monday night.
All the young men acknowledged
their pranks and pleaded innocence of
any wrong intent. The court, however,
held that damage to property was no
joke, and delivered sentences accord-
ingly. Harold Grey, the youngest
member of the class, was deputized to
see that the work was done.

ASHLAND, Or..' May 2S. (Special.)
The Springs Commission, in its work
of adding to and improving Ashland's
park system, has recently purchased a
dozen small properties, either inside
or adjacent to the original park tract,

HUNGRY PEOPLE CONSIDERED
Appeal Made for Help in Be

BLAME PUT ON MILITARY
Administration's Preliminary Action
Similar to That' Taken in Karly
Stages of Cuban Affair Plea
of Humanity Is Made.
WASHINGTON. May 28. President
Wilson has decided to serve notice on
all the warring factions in Mexico that
conditions in that country have become
intolerable and that unless they them
selves compose the situation soon some
other means may have to be employed
to accomplish the result.
The first intimation of the President's
determination to tako this step came
today in his appeal issued as head of
the American Red Cross, setting forth
that "due to several years of internal
disturbances,'" tho unfortunate people
of many parts of Mexico have been
reduced to the verge of starvation, and
urging contributions to relief funds.
Another Statement Expected.
Later the White House gave out the
"When the President's appeal for aid
for the Mexicans was issued it was
also stated at the executive offices that
a statement from the President on the
present situation in Mexico might be
expected within the. next few days."
This statement has been prepared and
will be issued after the Cabinet meet
ing next Tuesday and then communi
cated to the leaders of all the Mexican
Officials at the White House and
.State Department declined to say what
the President's statement contained,
out denied that recognition of any fac
tion was now contemplated. It was
said authoritatively that while friends
of Carranza here had been pressing for
recognition, the Washington Govern
ment had not been impressed with the
ability of any of the contending chiefs
to restore order.
End of Trouble Demanded.
The present action, it was said, was
not intended to assist one faction- at
the expense of another, but to demand,
in effect, that the Mexicans arrive at
an early settlement of their troubles,
or at least provide for the sustenance
of the starving population.
High officials referred to the Presi
dent's forthcoming pronouncement as
not meaning immediate intervention,
and they emphasized the word "imme
diate." The impression in Executive quar-

British fleet supporting the army on
the Gallipoli Peninsula, which has re
sulted in the sinking of the battleships
Majestic and Triumph, with the ever
increasing activity of these boats in
the waters around the British lslc and
the threat to carry this underwater
warfare to the Suez Canal, while they
have not caused any great uneasiness
in naval circles here, have brought
British officials to a realization of the
great danger that will exist if Ger
many is able largely to increase her
fleet of "U" boats.
Reports were received jestcrday of
the sinking of the British steamers
Cadeby and Spennymoor and the
Swedish berk M. Roosvall, and a state
ment was made that the big liner
Argyllshire was chafed and firrd on b
an undcr-t-ea boat, but succeeded in
escaping and reaching liavro.
Trade to and from British ports goes
on as If there were no submarine dan
ger, and it is said in London that there
will be no interruption in the opera
tions in the Dardanelles. The fleet there
will be required to assist the army on
the Gallipoli Peninsula, taking chances
of destruction by submarines and mines
or shell fire.
The Turks and their German officers
probably will have another invasion to
meet before long. Unofficial reports
reaching London yesterday were that
the Italians had landed on the Island
of Rhodes, off the coast of Asia Minor,
while a cruiser has been bombarding
Bedrum, which is on the Gulf of Kos,
