' BERLIN, via London, May 23. "The
adequate nourishment of our popula
tion is fully assured and will be ren
dered doubtful by any blockade regu
lations of enemy states, no matter how
unscrupulous they may be and no mat
ter how long the war may last." says
the semi-official North German Gazette,
In an announcement of the creation of a
food dictatorship with sweeping powers.
'However, the short harvest of 1915,
together with reduced imports, have "re
sulted in a food scarcity in some direc

been hindered by the fact That each

Power Never Equaled.
Probably never before have such
sweeping powers been concentrated as
are now granted Herr von Battocki, the
new food dictator. Various counselors
will be assigned to him, representing
agriculture. Industry, trade, the mili
tary and the consumers, and the rep
resentatives of the federal states and
of associations connected with the war
will aid him. Final decision on all
questions, however, rests solely In Herr
von Battocki's hands.
The regulations of the federal coun
cil will not be affected by the appoint
ment of the dictator, but in case of
pressing necessity the dictator is em
powered even to issue contrary regula

The surrender by the federal states
of their prerogatives indicates a reali
zation that existing conditions demand
Buch surrender. Adequate breadstuffs
are on hand, and it Is even likely that
the bread and flour ration for physical
workers soon will be increased. Enough
potatoes also are available to carry
the country through until the early
crop is harvested, although It is pos
sible that the allowance must be some
what reduced. It cannot be denied,
however, that Germany is likely to ap
proach nearly to a condition of a vege
tarian Eden in coming months.
Some Supplies Are Short.
The Lokal Anzeiger sums up the sit
uation as follows:
"It is no longer any secret that cer
tain supplies are short, not so much as
a. result of the friendly efforts of our
enemies, but as the result of last year's
poor harvest. It is true we do not need
to worry about bread. We have saved
enough -here by economic administra
tion to reach to the new harvest. We
even shall be able to increase the ration
for manual laborers.
- "We also shall come through with
potatoes, even though with scant ra
tions until the early crop. But our
meat and fat supplies, as is well known,
leave much to be desired. The last
animal census showed only slightly
ever 13,000,000 swine, but since the
number; of pigs is large, we may ex
pect in a year or more to make up in
fome degree what is lacking. The num
ber of meat cattle has decreased less
than was supposed, but what we lack
is cattle fit for butchering. The older
animals are consumed and the army's
meat requirements are so mighty that
even animals unfitted for slaughtering
must be taken. - ,
Milch Cows Are Spared.
In no circumstances must we touch
milch cows or we shall endanger the
milk supplies of our children.
"It does not require, furthermore, to
be said that the butter scarcity com
pels the greatest possible sparing of
milk cows, since the butter we import
from abroad eats up enormous sums of
The Lokal Anzelget refers to mis
takes in organization, but says after all
the main reason for the existing evils
Is the scarcity of supplies.
"The coming harvest promises well,"
the Lokal Anzeiger continues. "But not
all the difficulties will be solved with
Its harvesting. The acreage planted is
not smaller than last year, but the man
ner in which the planting and sowing
was done has suffered."

sion of confidence of Germany being

NEW TORK. May 23. Confronted by
an unbroken chain of evidence which
the state contends conclusively proves
him guilty of the murder of his wealthy
father-in-law, John E. Peck, of Grand
Rapids, Mich., Dr. Arthur Warren
Walte, the young New York dentist,
will go on the witness stand In an
effort to save himself from death In
the electric chair. This .decision wai
reached tonight by his counsel at the
end of the second day -of his trial.
The defendant's most trying ordeal
probably will come tomorrow, when his
wife, Mrs. Clara Peck Waite, her;
brother, Percy Peck, and Mrs. Margaret
Horton, with whom Waite shared a stu

against him. Mrs. Horton, accompa

It also is expected that the mystery
surrounding the identity of the person
who sent a telegram to Percy Peck the
day Waite's aged victim was to be
buried in Grand Rapids, urging that
an autopsy be held on the body, will
be disclosed tomrrow. The telegram
gave the first intimation to the Peck
family that there was anything wrong.
"Suspicion aroused. Demand autopsy.
Examine body. (Signed) K. Adams."
District ' Attorney Edward Swann
steadfastly has refused to divulge the
identity of the sender of the telegram,

Teuton Forces Still Clinj; to One

LONDON, May 23. (Special.) Today
witnessed the bloodiest fighting in the
whole battle of Verdun. The struggle
of the first days of the German as
sault, or of the second mighty ef
fort to overwhelm the fortress, fade
into nothing compared with the titanic
force of today's blows. And their net
result, so far as the Germans are con
cerned, was to leave the battle lines
where the French had left them after
the successful counter attacks of yes
terday. Only about the Thiaumont farm, east
of the Meuse, does Paris admit the
loss of a single foot of ground. Ber
lin itself claims only the capture of
a small blockhouse west of the river
and of a sap mine near Vaux. For
the rest it contents itself with report
ing the repulse of the French attacks.
Every Available Man l.ed.
Every available man and every avail
able gun except those actually neces
sary for the reserves the Germans have
mustered into the battle. They made
a supreme; effoVt to recapture Fort
Douaumont. which in their absorption
at Hill 304 and Le Mort Homme, they
had neglected to prepare against the
contingency of French surprise, but
the French grip on their old forti
fications was too strong.
Assault after assault, so many of
them that they literally flowed into
each other until even the French could
not distinguish them, was delivered
within the old ramparts. It was a
repetition of the hand-to-hand struggle
in the streets of Vaux.
To one corner of the abandoned fort
the Germans still clung desperately.
The French fought their way so close
that, had the opposing troops stood
up in the trenches, they could almost
have clasped hands across them.
Germans Cannot Escape.
There the Germans are still holding
out, unable to advance and cut off
from all escape. They are repeating
the feat of the Brandenburgers who
first captured the fort. Isolated from
their comrades for days, nevertheless
they succeeded in repelling all French
attempts .to regain the work.

OFFICERS MORE CONFIDENT
Slentlis Say All Kvldence Either
Is Neutral or Foints to Ex-Cbn-vlct,
While Alibi by Woman
Is Not Corroborated.
Two bits of i circumstantial evidence
which officers say strengthen further
the case against Bennett Thompson.
suspect being held in Hlllsboro for the
murder of Mrs. Helen Jennings and
mysterious disappearance of Fred Rist
man, were disclosed yesterday. Sim
ilarity of stains on a shirt believed to
have been the murderer's and an under
shirt known to be Thompson's and a.
partial identification of the accused
man as one seen talking to the missing
Jitney driver the night of the murder,
are the developments.
A significant fact, from the viewpoint
of Investigators of the crime, is that
every bit of evidence yet unearthed by
the authorities either Is neutral or
points to Thompson.
Alibi ot Corroborated.
Nothing has yet been found that
would point to another as perpetrator
of the crime. And nothing has been
discovered that would serve to clear
Thompson of suspicion.
Thompson s attorney asserts he has
a perfect alibi, but the untiring work
of deputy Sheriffs of Multnomah and
Washington counties and Portland de
tectives has failed to disclose any alibi
but the uncorroborated testimony of
Thompson's sister-in-law as to his
whereabouts that night.
Ift considering the assertions of Mrs.
James Thompson, who said tho suspect
was at her home, 7109 Forty-second
avenue Southeast, the night of the mur
der, the authorities recall that she was
the woman who secured the release of
Thompson from the penitentiary at Sa
lem through her importunities to Gov
ernor West, and they assert that she
has been infatuated with him.
Blood Stains Match.
The OregorTian correspondent at
Hlllsboro and Sheriff J. U. Reeves, of
Washington County, matched the
bloody, striped shirt found near the
Jennings home with the recently
washed undershirt found on the
clothesline at the home of Mrs. James
Thompson. They found yesterday that
the faintly-outlined stains on the un
dershirt, which gave a reaction to the
human blood test last Saturday, cor
responded, when placed under tho outer
shirt, to the splashes of blood on the
Where stains on the shirt found in
the woods are largest, stains on the
undershirt are correspondingly large.
The cuff found in the road and plainly
torn from the shirt was also matched
with the corresponding sleeve of the
undershirt yesterday. The cuff has
one deep stain, and when fitted about
the sleeve as it would be worn directly
above the undershirt of Thompson, a
corresponding stain was found.
P. X. Johnson, of Portland, who was
taken to Hillsboro yesterday by Dep
uty Sheriff Bob Phillips, with raul
Turner and N. H. Engle, picked Thomp
son from a group of prisoners as the
man he had seen talking to Rlstman
about 7 o'clock the night of the mur
der. ThompNOn la Identified.
"I am morally certain ThompsPh is
the man," said Johnson after' a thought
Johnson said that Klstman owed him
some money and when he approached
the jitney driver he found him in con
versation with a stranger. What that
conversation was about he does not
know, but he asserts that he overheard
the words, "can't afford." He waited
for several minutes to see Hist roan
and had a good opportunity casually to
observe the man with whom Klstman
Turner picked out Thompson as re
sembling a man he had seen walking
nervously about near the Jitney stand
at Second and Alder streets between 3
and 4 o'clock on the day of the mur
der. He said that Thompson looked
like the man, but was wearing differ
ent clothes. He described the way the
man's hat was worn. It was in a man
ner characteristic of Thompson.
Another Makes Identification.
Engle failed to identify Thompson as
one of the two men in an automobile
who had stopped to buy gasoline at his
place in Fulton, but said he did not
have an opportunity to get a fair view
of the Jitney passenger's fate.
Sheriff Keeves said yesterday thU a
man named "Stevens" had seen Thomp
son at the Hillsboro Jail and iientifiel
him as the man he had seen talking
to Ristnisn. '
