other "affairs" now under Investiga

of the prosecutor.
He will ask that the sentence of
death be Imposed upon Polo.
The trial was resumed today with
M. Doyen, an expert accountant, aeain
on the stand to refute charices inada by
Monsiicnor Bolo, brother of the defend
ant, that Doyen had dishonored himself
by falsifying a portion of his original
report on iiolo's activities.
The witness spoke wiih great re.oerve
and moderation, declaring merely that
he took exception "to the form in which
these criticisms were presented by a
who stranirely abuses tbe moral
authority conferred on him by the
elolh he wears."

telegrams of Count von Kernstorff,
former Oerman Ambasssdon to the
L'nlted States, duplicates of which he
instated should he produced rather than
to rely on American State Department
When the prosecutor repeated, as on
Monday, that the American tlovern
ment should not be questioned, the
priest created a aensatiou by asserting
. "The American Government has not
the right to shoot my Innocent brother."
Maurice Villette, former Minister of
testified that the current
among parliamentary and
ministerial circles In August. 1317. was
that -no case would he found acainst
Bolo I'aaha, and that M. l'aloleve. then
Minister of War. had asserted that the
case did not warrant an arrest.
The last witnesses of the day re
counted the good deeds of Bolo Pa.sha
and Darius Forchere, "an . accountant.

also told of the personal feuds between
the newspaper men for and against
Senator Charles Humbert, former own

the Government had charged Bolo
with being a friend of Abbus Hilrni.

been charged, eent money to Bolo for

When M. Vlollette. In testifying, re
ferred to two documents sent in Au

tor Mornet to Minister of War Pain-

Pasha, demanded that the documents
be submitted to the defense. Tins was
refused by the court and il. Mornet.
Salles then requested of General Imi

the documents to be added to the
docket. This request also was refused.

In connection with the case, that until
additional evidence was obtained from
America Bolo would not be arrested.
To this atat.ment Mornet replied:
"We readily admit that had America
remained neutral we could not have
got to the bottom of this case and
other cases and that Bolo today would
be walking the streets free."
In the opinion of prominent lawvers
present at the trial, the refusal to turn
over te two documents sent by Prose

abandon Its plan of riving spruce in
forests of Clatsop County and banging
the bolts out with motor truck.
One of the Commissioners explained
the situation at the meeting of the com
mission today. He said: "The system of
riving spruce is not practicable. Only
one tree out of ten la fit for riving and
it is nothing less than a crime to split
logs for only a portion of the timber
to remain and rot In the woods.
"Loggers and those with experience
In marketing timber are unanimous In
the opinion that the Government should
build railroads into the woods and
bring out not only the spruce, but the
yellow fir timber as well, all of it at
one operation. If the Government does
not care to go to this expense, private
ownership will be willing to take the
responsibility If the Government will
aid them financially." .

"My Lords and Gentlemen The ne
cessities of war render it Imperative
for me, after but a brief Interval, to
summon you again to your deliberations.
"The" alms for which I and my allies
are contending were recently set forth
by my government in a statement which
received the emphatic approval of my
peoples throughout the empire, and
provided a fair basis for settlement of
the present struggle and re-establishment
of national rights and interna
tional peace In the future.
Teuton Government Obdnrate.
"The German government has, how
ever. Ignored our Just demands that it
should make restitution for the wrongs
it has committed and furnish guaran
tees atralnst their unprovoked repeti
tion. Its spokesmen refuse any obli
gations for themselves, while denying
rightful liberties of others.
"Until a recognition is offered of the
only principles on which an honorable
peace can be conciuaea. it is our auiy
to prosecute the war with all the vigor
"I have full confidence that my
forces In the field. In close co-operation
with those of my faithful allies,
will continue to display the same heroic
courage and my people at nome tne
same unselfish devotion that have al
ready frustrated so many of the ene
my's designs and will ensure the ulti
mate triumph of the righteous cause.

"I have summoned representatives of
my dominions and my Indian Empire
to a further session of the Imperial
war cabinet In order that I may again
receive their advice on questions of
moment affecting the common Interest
of the euipire.
"Gentlemen of the House of Com
mons, you will be asked to make suit
able provisions for the requirements of
the combatant services and for the
stability of our national finance.
"My Lords and gentlemen, the strug
gle In which we are engaged has
reached a critical stage, which de
mands more than ever our united ener

mend to your patriotism the measures
which will be submitted to you and I
