HOORAH DAYS FORGOTTEN
Steamer Taken at Reedsport and

Visited Iiocal Residents

BY RONALD G. CALLVERT.
NORTH BEND, Or., Oct. 10. (Spe
cial.) There has been an evolution in
business men's or trade excursions. The
first, it will be remembered by those
who participated in or read of their do
ings, were of the hip-hooray type. At
each stop a crowd pf spellbinders would
pile off the train and proceed to un
wind as they gazed into tne presuma
bly bright and eager faces of the as
The latest order in trade extension
excursions is dignity and hospitality.
This excursion has now spent the first
day of its sojourn in the principality
of Coos, that state within a state. Port
land business houses, as a rule, have
sent their presidents or general mana
gers. The train is the most thoroughly
equipped of the kind. The chief effort
is to beget acquaintance and good feel
ing rather than awe the multitude.
The excursionists spend their time
visiting customers, seeing the country
and inspecting industries. There is no
noise, but there is a quantity of quiet
enthusiasm and they have learned
much of the district's golden prospects
and tha possibilities of this as a trade
Entertainment Is Provided. '
The train on which they are traveling
carries two djning cars and a buffet
car, but these extraordinary facilities
are not wholly for the purpose of sat
isfying the appetites of 80 men. Extra
provisions have been made for those
who desire to entertain friends or cus
tomers at meal time and that "open
house" may be better observed at ap
pointed times. c
The excursion reached the Coast
this morning under a special dispensa
tion of the weather man. There was
all the sunshine and warmth of a mid
Summer day. .Indeed, the residents say
it was warmer today than ordinary
Summer weather. The day's programme
began at Reedsport, where a steamer
was placed at the disposal of the party
through the courtesy of Warren Reed.
The Eva sped them down the Umpqua
River to the spick and span "white
city" of Gardiner. There an hour was
devoted to visiting mercantile estab
lishments, then the return tflp wai
made to Reedsport, where similar vis
its were made.
Lakeside and Hauaer Visited.
fchort stops were made at Lakeside
and Hauser in the afternoon. At the
latter- place R. R. Pinkerton brought
on board the train an individual glass
01 .naiive crancerry sauce for each
member of the party.
The major portion of the afternoon
was spent at North Bend, in the sur
rounding country, and inspecting mills
and - shipyards where three steam
schooners are under construction and
another is just off the ways. A dozen
automobiles "carried members of the
party to Shore Acres, the wonderful
home of Louis J. Simpson, for a brief
visit. The day closed with a smoker
at the clubrooms of the North Bend
Chamber of Commerce.
During the day the excursionists
have had as guests Charles Hall. C. R.
Peck and R. B. Murdock. citizens of
Marshfield, who met the party at Eu
gene last night.
Reverting to thoroughness of equip
ment it is notable that this is the first
Portland excursion train so far as re
corded that has had an official physi
cian. The itinerary folder so desig
nates Dr. .E. A. Sommer. Active duty
began for Dr. Sommer this morning
when Julius Meier was stricken by a
violent attack of Walton's fever while
on the steamer Eva. v
Prescription Is Fitting.
Dr. Sommer prescribed an hour's out
ing in a small boat on the Umpqua
River with a line and spinner dangling
in the water and himself as attendant.
Here let it be emphasized, regardless
of what envious and carping gossip's
may say, that Mr. Meier personally and
without assistance of any kind hooked
and landed that fine silver salmon he
had served for lunch. But contrary
to expectations the fever has not been
allayed, but was seemingly aggravated
by the treatment.
Of course, no excursion is complete
during an election campaign without a
straw vote. A poll of the party, includ-
ing the three Marshfield guests, con
ducted by H. H. Ward and J. L Bow
man, stood: Hughes 64. Wilson 17, not
voting 3. A poll waa also taken of
train employes, the teim ! iing used to
embrace porters, waiters, cooks and
others, but not the engineer and fire
men, who could not be reached. The
result thereof was, Hughes 30, Wil
to entrench between Devlataband and
Hamadan (Persia). ,t
"On the right wing of the Caucasian
front there were skirmishes and inter
mittent firing of artillery and infantry.
In the center we again advanced our
position slightly. On the left wing we
took some prisoners and a large quan
tity of arms and equipment in patrol

ROME, via London, Oct. 10. The- fol
lowing official communication, was is
sued today: r
"On Monte Fasubio our troops tooit
enemy trenches in the sector of Cos
magnon and Sette Croci and captured
lie men of the Kasserjager, Including
six officers and one machine gun.
In the Travignolo Valley the enemy
attacked our positions on the second
peak of Colbricon in force. They were
driven off and pursued. An attack
against our line on Monte Sief also
was decisively repulsed.
"The enemy shelled Gorizia, causing
damage to buildings and a few casual
ties among the inhabitants.
"In Albania an Italian detachment
yesterday occupied Klisura, southeast
of Tepelini on the Voyusa River.'.'
Tuesday's War Moves
SUBMARINES of belligerent powers
visiting American waters will be
accorded the treatment which is their
due as warships under international
law. This fact has been made known
to the entente allied powers by the
State Department at Washington in
answer to an identic memorandum
from Great Britain, France, Russia and
Japan, asking that submarines of every
character be prevented from availing
themselves ef the use of neutral waters
and that such vessels entering neutral
harbors be interned.
President Wilson and Secretary Lan
sing have discussed at length the
visit of a German submarine to waters
adjacent to the coast of the United
States and will continue their con
ference Wednesday. The German un
dersea craft which played havoc with
enemy and neutral steamers off Nan
tucket Sunday has not been heard of
since the last steamer was sent to the
bottom Sunday night.
To a seemingly implied warning in
the entente allied note that American
submarines might be mistaken by
allied warships for enemy submarines,
should they navigate waters visited by
belligerent submarines, the State De
partment announces that responsibility
for the failure of a warship to dis
tinguish between submarines of neutral
and belligerent nationality "must rest
entirely upon the negligent power."
French troops fighting south of the
Somme have bent German lines con
siderably over a front of about two
and a half miles from Bovent to the
Chaulnes Wood, capturing in the op
eration the village, the north and west
outskirts "of Ablaincourt and most of
the Chaulnes Wood. Little activity
was shown on the British front.
In Transylvania the Germans are
closely pressing the retreating Rou
manians. In the fighting around
Kronstadt 1175 Roumanians 'were made
The Galiclan village of Herbutow has
been stormed by the Germans and in

"On both sides of Brasso (Kronstadt)

Along the Struma River t in Greek
Macedonia, the forces of the Teutonic
powers have evacuated Chavdar Mali,
Ormanli and Haznatar. Northwest of
Seres the British have taken from the
Bulgarians the towns of Kalendra and
Homondos. Berlin says that along the
Cerna River, where the entente allies
have been making progress, all at
tacks have been repulsed.

German submarines operating in the
