Father Joins American Army to Be
Xear Youngsters, Who Xow Are
at Home in Portland.
After having lived in America for the
period of the war. while her children
were somewhere in Belgium, their fate
unknown. Mra. Polydoor Witteoreongle,
who lives on Oswego street, at last has
her .youngsters safe on American soil.
She and her husband came to America
about two months before the war broke
out for a visit, and left the children, a
pirl of four months and a boy of seven,
with their grandmother at Charleroi.
Belgium.
The parents were not permitted to
return after war had involved the lead
ing nations of Europe, and rarely heard
from relatives because of interrupted
mail service. Such messages as they
did receive, however, informed tnem of
'the safety of the children as well as of
the hardships they were .forced to en
dure.
" In the hope that he might reach the
younarsters and at the same time be of
assistance to his native land. Mr. Witt
. eorengle joined the American army and
went overseas with a detachment of
engineers. In this capacity he was able
to learn that the children had escaped
the f rightfulness "of the first days of
the. conflict and were being well cared
for. although improperly clothed and
underfed. He kept his wife informed,
and it wju a happy reunion that took
place in Belgium a few weeks ago
when the mother claimed her tots. She
reached Portland last Friday with the
children, and called yesterday at army
recruiting headquarters for her hus
band's victory button.
Mrs. Witteoroengle found the boy
sturdy and apparently in good health,
but the girl fared' less fortunately and
is almost a nervous wreck, due. It is
said, to shock of heavy bombardment,
lack of proper food and clothirfg and
exposure attendant upon fleeing to es
cape the Germans when they visited
Charleroi.
PITTSBURG, Aug-. 6. Warrants were

COLUMBrS, O., Aug. 6. County
Prosecutor Schlesinger, in the name of
the state, filed proceedings in the Frank

lumbus Packing company and the Fair
mont Creamery company for an In
junction and a receiver for 151,251
pounds of pork which the prosecutor
alleges the creamery company has held

SPOKANE WILL CHECK FOODS
City to Make Inventory of Stock and
Keep Eye on Waste.
SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 6. As a step
toward co-operation with other cities
of the northwest in an effort to reduce
the cost of living, the city council to
day instructed the health department
to make an inventory of all food stocks
held in this city. It was also suggested
that the city crematory report on the
amount of wasted foodstuffs it handles
each day.
An increase of one cent a loaf in the
price of bread was announced today
by a large wholesale bakery of this
city. Increase in the cost of labor and
materials, it was stated, has made the
rise necessary, in spite of an expected
reduction in the price of flour shortly
on the local market.
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. Aug. 6. P.ail
roads bringing wheat into Kansas City
must curtail their daily arrivals to two
cars, compared with the former daily
average wheat movement to this mar
ket of 850 cars, officials of the Kansas
City Terminal Railway company an
nounced late today. The fact that all
railroad shopmen here are on strike is
assigned as the reason for the order.
CHICAGO. Aug. 6. Leaders of the
Chicago district council of the Feder
ated Railway Shopmen's union said to
night that a conservative estiba,te 275,-
000 were on strike throughout country
and that the movement was spreading.
They declared no violence would be
countenanced by the organization and
that so far as they knew no mail trains
had been interferred with.
Assistant District Attorney Roy said
that evidence of interference with the
mail, train schedules would bring ac
tion against persons responsible for
calling the strike. He also said he
Questioned several representatives of
the shopmen today.
Rank and File Demand Strike.
L. M. Hawver, president of the dis
trict council, said so far as he knew
none of the shopmen had been sum
moned by the district attorney or ques
tioned. As to responsibility for the
strike, he said, the rank and file had
demanded a strike in spite of the
wishes of their grand lodge presidents
and that the men were determined to
remain on strike until their demands
for 85 cents an hour for mechanics and
60 cents for helpers had been granted.
He said that every railroad in the
middle west and south has been serious
ly crippled by the walkout. He predicted
that freight service and a large part of
passenger service will be tied up within
a week in nearly every section of the
country.
The executive council of the union,
through President Hawver, today is
sued an order calling on all shop fore
men to join the strike.
Lines Put on Embargoes.
Effects on traffic of the strike of
federated railroad shopmen were seen
today in the embargo placed by sev
eral lines on all freight shipments ex
cept carload shipments of livestock and
perishable goods. Accessions to the
ranks of the strikers, which seemed to
be increasing, it was believed, would
lead additional lines to refuse to ac
cept less than carload shipments.
Investigation of the manner in which
the strike was called is under way here
by R. A. Milroy, assistant United States
district attorney, who seeks evidence
with a view to prosecution of those
responsible for efforts to tie up the
railroads, which are under government
supervision.
SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 6. Shopmen
in the employ of the Northern Pacific
and Oregon-Washington Railway &
Navigation companies here went on

the Northern Pacific shops at Park
water, a suburb, 120 in the locomotive

ABOARD FLAGSHIP NEW MEXICO.
OFF LOS CORO.VADOS, Aug. 6. (By
the Associated Press.) Admiral Hugh
Rodman, commander of the Pacific
fleet, swung himself down the ladder
that led from the high bridge of the
flagship New Mexico and, stepping
briskly to the quarterdeck, went to his
cabin, where he eased himself In a big
arm chair. He had observed with keen
eye the- great fleet under his orders
as It dropped Its mudhooks overboard
off Los Coronados.

of appreciation for what the admiral
and his sixth battle squadron had done

Admiral Rodman became reminiscent
end consented to tell of the work of
the sixth battle squadron, four of
. whose ships the Wyoming, Arkansas,
I New York and Texas are now with
the Pacific fleet.
"The American fleet left for Eng
land in November, 1917," said Admiral
Rodman, "and we did not get back un
til the following December. After
rounding Cape Wrath we Joined Admi
ral Sir David Beatty's grand sea fleet
in Scapa Flow and were immediately
assigned to a place of honor, that of
one of the two fast wings of the Brit
ish fleet. From the time we Joined Sir
David Beatty's forces until we teft
the American warships took part in all
regular tours of duty in the North sea
with the British fleet as a whole, and
not infrequently we worked in smaller
detachments In convoy work and
scouting, but always with & mixed
force of British and American ships,
on which occasions sometimes I was
under the command of a British ad
miral and sometimes I had two or three
British admirals under my command."
British Fleet Saved World.
"Let me say this right here," added
Admiral Rodman, "had It not been for
the British fleet the war would have
been won in six months, and In favor
of Germany, unqualifiedly. . The Brit
ish fleet has been the backbone upon
which the security of the British em
pire rests."
The admiral's blue eyes sparkled
with evident delight when he told of
the amazement with which the British
beheld the efficiency and celerity with
which the American fleet worked in
conjunction with the British navy.
"There are two things which the
British venerate above everything else
that is royalty and the Erttlsh navy.
When we became part of the grand
sea fleet and when we proved our ef
ficiency we were given every confi
dence. They gave us their signals,
their codes: all information pertaining
to policy, and confided to us their most
recret codes, which was very much like
the Jews of old when they entered the
holy of holies; They also gave me se
cret information on their espionage
system which I have never even given
to our own government- This system
enabled us to know whenever the Ger
man shins stuck their heads out from
their holes. The Germans could not
have steamed coffee in a pot for an
hour but we would have known it.

matters of all kinds relating to the
work at hand. Instruments were also
"The British marveled at our quick
use of the Knslish codes and signals.'

that part which surprised them most
was that we never lost our American

MEXICO CITY. Aus 6 Oil legisla

will base its consideration of the sub

last November by President Carranza,
according to a statement made today to
the Associated Press by Leon Salinas,
acting head of the department of in
dustry and commerce and also chief of
the oil bureau of that department.
Senior Salinas declared that, insofar
as his department was concerned, tne
question of new oil legislation was
closed, saying that the department, in
issuing provisional permits for oil in
terests to sink wells, had turned the
whole question over to congress for
final disposition.
Discussing the report that Japanese
interests are securing oil land on the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Mexico,
Senor Salinas declared that his de

transactions and that Japanese oil men
had made no Inquiries at the depart

wodld be possible for them to secure
holdings from private individuals and
that his department would not be
advised as to tnese oeaia. oiuto
