PARIS. Sept: 30. Captain Bouchar
don, examining magistrate for the
court-martial of Bolo Pasha, charged
with having relations with the enemy,
after examining the Levantine suspect
for two hours decided that although
he had been ill his condition would
permit his transfer to prison. A pri
vate ambulance conveyed him to Fres
ne Jail, where he was placed in a hos
The prison authorities have been
ordered to treat Bolo Pasha as an ordi
nary prisoner without either privileges
or unusual severity.
In taking Bolo Pasha to prison he
was carried on a stretcher from his
room in the Grand Hotel. A crowd of
about 2000 persons assembled around
the ambulance shouting: "Death to
the traitor! Throw him into the Seine!
It now is said Bolo Pasha received
$1,600,000 from the Deutsche Bank.
In the transfer the sum was divided
into several parts, passing through a
number of hands before it finally
reached any bank. By that time all
traces of its origin had been lost.
The Matin says that nine American
banks figured in these transactions
and that the American police have been
able to make out a list of names of
persons in America to whom checks
were drawn by the Deutsche Bank,
with the intention of making payment
to secret German agents in France.
The Figaro says Bolo went to New
York in February, 1915, remained there
a fortnight and returned with eight
million marks drawn from a German
bank in New York.
The Echo De Paris says twelve
American banks were utilized in the
transfer, and that one of the interme
diaries in the sending of money to
Bolo was a relative of an official in
the Imperial Bank of Germany who is
connected with a German-American
According to the Journal, Bolo's con

MIRTH GALORE AT LYRIC
"TWO OLD SPORTS" IS VEHICLE FOR
Aside From Amusing Situation's, "Port
land Rosebuds" Offer Good
Songs and Dances.
Ben Dillon, comedian of the Keating
& Flood Musical Comedy Company, has
uncorked a genuine laugh hit this week
at the Lyric Theater. It is called "Two
Old Sports," and there is as much fun
about it as the name Implies. It Is the
company's best offering in musical
The scene is a fashionable hotel and
cabaret, with Dillon as one of the two
old sports. And he is "some" old sport
until he gets in a tilt with the manage
ment. Then amusing situations fall all
over each other. He drops from the
blue-veined class to the position of
waiter in order that he may settle a
bill that piles up higher than his bank
roll. It doesn't take long to see that
the house might better have forgotten
the bill. It doesn't take much imag
ination to see the opportunity there is
for fun in such a layout, and Dillon
is the sort who overlooks no chance
in this line.
Life, action and music are added to
the entertainment by the "Portland
Rosebuds." They have a number of
song hits and present some good dan
cing. "Two Old Sports" will run at the
Lyric all this week, with a matinee
each day and continuous night perform

BALLSTLIN F!0 UTE UPHELD
ROAD MEETING AT SHERIDAN
Oscar Hayter, Proponent of Resolution,
Expresses Opinion Routing Will
Not Be Changed.
SHERIDAN, Or.. Sept. 30. (Special.)
Emphatic espousal of the Ballston
route of the Pacific Highway from Mc
Minnville to Dallas marked a meeting
here last night of the Sheridan Good
Roads Association, which was attended
by prominent advocates of good roads
from Yamhill and Polk counties.
The feature of the meeting was the
first reading in public of the report
made by Commissioner Adams to the
State Highway Commission of his hear
ings in McMinnvtlle and Dallas, Sep
tember 10 and 11. This report was
read by Oscar Hayter, an attorney of
Dallas, who expressed the opinion that
no change would be made in the com
mission's adoption of the Ballston
E. L. Sechrist, of Dallas, appearing
for Ballston, declared that the attitude
of S. Benson, who has been reported as
opposed to the Ballston route, was gen
erally misunderstood. Mr. Sechrist
said that, from an Interview with Mr.
Benson, he gathered that the chairman
of the board was not definitely against
the Ballston route, but would vote
with the majority on the question. He
did say, however, that he favored doing
the first work on the most direct route,
which would be on the east side of the
river, with the consequence that the
road in controversy would be delayed.
After the reading of Mr. Adams' re
port a resolution commending the de
cision of the Highway Commission was
offered by Mr. Hayter and adopted, as
"Resolved, That we heartily commend
and approve the action of the State
Highway Commission in locating the
West Side Highway from McMinnville
to Dallas by way of Bellevue and
Ballston, for the reason that such lo
cation is in accord with the spirit of
the law and will serve best the people
of the counties affected.

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON", Eugene,
Sept. 30. (Special.) Allen Eaton,
whose dismissal from the faculty of
the university is demanded in a reso
lution adopted by the Eugene Chamber
of Commerce because he attended the
Chicago meeting of the People's Coun
cil for Democracy and Terms of Peace,

loyal to the Government and is in full
sympathy with the President's pur
poses in prosecuting the war.

that he acceded to a request of a croup
of citizens at Wyoming, N. T., where
He has spent the last two Summers,
to attend a Minneapolis meeting, which
afterward became the Chicago meeting
of the People's Council for Democracy
and Terms of Peace.
"Mr. Eaton has offered to present all
of the facts in the case to the Eugene
Chamber of Commerce or to the board
of regents at the University, but pre
fers to make a statement first to the
Chamber of Commerce, since the reso
lution calling for his resignation came
from the Chamber. He will present a
signed statement at once. In the
meantime, taking into account Mr.
Eaton's long record of absolute loyalty
to everything American, it does not
seem fair that his work should be In
terrupted before he has had opportu
nity of stating his case in full."
Work AVou Id Be Hindered.
President Campbell, in explaining
his announcement that Mr. Eaton
would continue his connection with
the University for the present, pointed
out that unless Mr. Eaton was on hand
tomorrow the work of his department
would be hindered throughout the
year and his absence might necessitate
the complete abandonment of those
courses for the year. Mr. Eaton is ex
pected to present his statement to the
Chamber of Commerce not later than

Progress of the War.
THE veil of secrecy which has hung
over the operations along the Brit
ish front in Belgium and Northern
France since the latter part of the week
still remains impenetrable so far as
the news offerings of the British War
Office are concerned. Since Friday
nothing except brief statements have
reached the outside world from Field
Marshal Haig's headquarters.
Sunday night's report chronicles the
repulse of three German attacks in the
Ypres sector, with losses to the at
tackers, including a number of prison
ers and several machine guns. The
Germans, the British statement says,
after heavily bombarding' their objec
tives, employed a thick smoke barrage
to cloak their advance and also used
flame-throwing apparatus. The artil
lery activity continues between the
Ypres-Comines canal and Zonnebeke,
and in the Nieuport sector.
The Berlin official communication of
Sunday characterizes the artillery duel
along the Belgian Coast and southward
to the Ypres-Comines Canal as "severe."
Berlin also indicates that the British
troops are keeping the enemy on the
alert by stabs at various points from
Meanwhile, the Italians have started
another big offensive against the Aus
trians on the Isonzo front. On the
Bainsizza plateau hetght positions have
been stormed and taken by General Ca
dorna's forces and 1409 prisoners cap
tured. By their new successes the
Italians have brought their line almost
to the bridgehead of the Chiapovano
River, near Podlaca and Madoni, which
also gives them possession of nearly all
of the Southwestern portion of the
The Austrians, realizing the strategic
value of the Italian gain, have delivered
extremely heavy counter-attacks, but
to no purpose.
Daily the Italians continue their
aerial bombardments of Austrian posi
tions with large quantities of explo
sives. The great fortress of Pola has
again received a visitation and enemy

east of Triest, on the Gulf of Trlest,
have been bombed.

that three of them were brought down.

Prompt Balances Statements Out On Time
BOOKKEEPING by the old style pen-and-ink method means duplicate effort on the
part of the bookkeeper. Modern efficiency cuts out useless operations in all
branches of industry, speeds up work, cuts down cost and increases the returns.
With hand bookkeeping several distinct operations are necessary entering charges,
posting ledger, distributing sales, making out statements and securing Trial Balances.
With Elliott-Fisher The Bookkeeping Machine, all necessary records are made at
one operation. This involves less labor, less time, practically eliminates the possibility
of error in posting and assures the correctness of each day's work.
The Proof Sheet (made at the same time as posting the ledger and making the
statement) makes it possible to keep each day's work complete and up-to-date.
There is no end-of-the month rush, worry or congestion. There is nothing-to-do-at-the-end-of-the-month-but-mail-the-statement.
J. W. Carter & Company of Nashville, Tenn. are manufacturers of men's medium
welt shoes. Finding their bookkeeping department taxed beyond its limit, they sought
relief. Elliott-Fisher Bookkeeping Machines were installed after a thorough investi
gation and this is what they say of results :
"At the time ue put in Elliott-Fisher The Bookkeeping Machine we were having a great deal
of trouble in keeping up the work of the office as well as getting our balance at the end of the
month. But since putting in this machine we have increased our business fifty per cent. , and are
able to take care of the business with greater ease. Our books are now kept by two young men
who practically were without experience when we gave them charge of the books.
"We never fail to get our balance on the second day of the month. If we could not secure
another one of these machines we would not take five thousand dollars for the one we have."
The Proof Sheet is proof of the accuracy of Elliott-Fisher Machine Bookkeeping.
It affords the executive as well as the bookkeeper evidence of where every account
stands. It means prompt trial balances, statements out on time the first of the month
and, naturally, quicker collections.
Investigate Elliott-Fisher Bookkeeping Machine. It will pay. We will gladly answer
any questions. Write us or, better still, phone our nearest office (one in all principal
cities). Address. Elliott-Fisher Company
