than ever, perhaps,

.r, uere me middle-aged men, among
the world wanderers, the lost legions
of England come in. Which is one rea-
ny mis British base, so far behind
the line that we can hear the cannon
only when the wind is favorable, has
become one of the most interesting
places in all Kurope.
Those wandering Englishmen of the
upper class one who lives on the out
skirts of the world need not travel far
to know the type. We had them bv the
hundreds on the range of the Western
States in the old days, when cow
punching was really cow-punching.
Viherever there is adventure and out-of-door
life they go. They were in the
Klondike with the earliest ruah. They
were among the first who ever broke
into the unknown country about the
headwaters of the Amazon. They ride
the bush in Australia and the veldt in
Greater Adventures Sought.
And when the war broke, with one
accord they came to the defense of
Jj-ngland and the greater adventure un
der the guns. In the early days of the
war I met them on all my ocean cross
ings, hurrying home in the hope of
a commission, but ready, if the com
mission failed, to shoulder a musket
with the "Duke's sons, cook's sons"
who make up the rank and file of the
new British armies.
It isn't etiquette to mention names,
and. besides, the censor doesn't permit
it; but there is one whom I shall call
Smith-Jones. He happens to be rich,
and yachting is his hobby. His yacht
ing is practical; he loves to take the
tiilei .himself. He has raced and cruised
in all the seven seas. He knows New
York Harbor as well .- s he knows
Southampton, and the New York Yacht
Club as well as the Royal Yacht Club.
His permanent or impermanent home
is a chateau in France, now become
a hospital, and he talks perfect French '
which adds a premium to the services
of any British officer in this war. It
happens that he has spent most of
his working life in the business of
railroads his is a great "transporta
rtailroad Work Has Acquisition.
So now he wears khaki with the
three stars on the sleeve which desig
nate him as Captain, and he is helping
to keep - that network of railroads
which run between base and line from
tangling and stopping.
It is always likely to be merry about
the hotel when he whom 1 shall desig
nate as Browne-Robinson comes down
with his train from the line. He is
perhaps 55; he is quite stout in spite
of an active life, and inclines to bald
ness. Browne-Robinson ought to be
Irish, what with his wit, but he is. as
a matter of fact, blue-blooded English.
When the war came he was somewhere
in South America, where he was prob
ably preparing to mingle in another
revolution. Now he is a T. C. O., which
means Transport Commanding Officer.
As such he has charge, supreme charge,
of a train. He may be gone four or
five days toward the line, during which
he works his brain like a Wall-street
broker and his body like a longshore
man, and sleeps in what the army calls
a "flea-bag." There follow two or three
day-B during which he is the joy of the
bast, and then he Is off again.
Letters That Km I in D. T.
I suppose that, like all raconteurs, he
touches up his best stories; it seems im
possible that so many ridiculous things
could come under the attention of one
man. This is his latest:
The special officials in the British
army, and also the service corps of the
British army, are cursed" with clumsy
official designations. If the army
stopped to pronounce them all in full
there would be no time left for fight
ing. So they fall back upon initials.
The Royal Army Medical Corps be
comes the R. A. M. C; the Army Serv
ice Corps, the A. S. C. and so on. Now
it. appears that a bewildered civilian
showed up the other day at a railroad.
He had business there something to
do with army supplies but his papers
were irregular and the army intelli
gence men arrested him and took him
before their chief.
"Yes," said the chief, "I am the C. I.
O. I suppose you are all right, but you
must straighten out your papers. See
the A. P. M. You will find him on the
ground floor of the R. A. M. C. head
quarters next office to the' C. M. O.
Get him to vise this and get it counter
signed by the T. C. O. of your train.
Then see the jr. T. C. O. He is some
where about town. Do you know him?
He's a big fellow with a little mus
tache. Major's uniform with the D. S.
O. and the V. C, and "
"Stop!" cried the civilian. "Stop! I
am getting the D. T.'sP'
Now that the Lost Legion of Britain
has found Itself and gathered again.
some of the middle-aged or elderly
members learn that ttiey are without
any special aptitude for high command.
In that case they find something to do
in the ranks. One of them is past 50.
He knows nothing of medicine or rail
roads or languages; but he can run an
automobile, and do it well. So. like
many others of his class, he has volun
teered as a Red Cross chauffeur. He
is a university man, of great breadth
of cultivation and several pleasant lit
tle intellectual hobbies.
Perhaps because he looked too old
to take chances far up toward the line,
the impersonal army authorities as
signed him as chauffeur to a medical
officer who must, in the course of his
duties, do much running about the base.
Now, when he and his officer are in
company, he is the respectful, obedient
Tommy, always saluting with that
rather elaborate and flourishing salute
which the privates use in the British
army. It is quite different when they
are alone. Similarly, when there is
company at the hospital he dines in the
basement with the Tommies; but I un
derstand that if you should drop in un
expectedly you would find him upstairs,
like as not, dining with the officers and
surgeons. After all, artificial rank can
be carried only so far.
Finally, there is the most nobly pa
thetic case of all.

WASHINGTON. July 22. Formation"
of a great American cotton pool to

ment has been proposed informally to
the State Department as a means of
equitably distributing among the pro

Any arrangement of this kind would
have to be made directly between the
British government and the cotton in

proval by the State Department.

any restrictions oi trade between neu

ROBBER SUSPECTS TAKEN
Police Make Arrests Following In
vestigation of Misdeeds.
Three Italians, Jim Lanza, Jim Ras

last night in a lodging-house at First
and Salmon streets by Detectives Cole
man and Snow, who have been in
vestigating the robbery of the Oregon
City car at Canemah on July 15; the
robbery of the Mount Tabor car on
July 5, and the robbery of the Wood
stock streetcar about the same time.
The men are held under tentative
charges of vagrancy.
All three of the robberies, according
to the police, were committed by au
Italian. The robber of the Oregon City
car wore a long tan raincoat similar
to one found in the room of the men
arrested last night.
According to information the police
say they obtained from the landlady
of the lodging-house, the three men
have been staying in their rooms
during the day. Nearly every night,
the police say, the three left their room
and remained away until nearly morn
ing. The men have been at that ad
dress for about two weeks.

WASHINGTON. July 22. The Inter

weignt but-not with the distance, and
the rail transportation rate per 100
pounds, which varies with the weight.

Delivery Allowance Increased.
in accordance with the petition of
the companies, the Commission modi
fied its order to permit changes in the
iirst and second factors. The effect is
lo increase the collection and delivery
allowance five cents for each shipment
ana to reduce the rail terminal allow
ance at the rate of one-twentieth of
one cent a pound. As the weight in
creases the five-cent increase Is srraidu-
ally reduced so that on shipments of
more man loo pounds the readjust
ment win not make any change.
Muostamtaiiy no commodity rates
will be affected. In. ail events, any
change in the rate3. with few excep

those prevailing when the Commission
established the zone system in Febru

By that means the express companies
are expected to increase their gross
revenues about 3.86 per cent The

companies have decreased to a deficit
