(Copyright by the New York "World. Pub

LONDON. Sept. 23. (Special Cable.)
According to a despatch to the Daily
News from Vienna, the Austrian for
eign office has published a supple
mentary red book, dealing with the
period preceding the outbreak of
the war "In order to help in restor
ing that clearness in the country re
lations with all other states which is
necessary for a lasting understand
in pr."
There are three documents in the
book which leave the impression that
Count Berchtold, then foreign secre
tary, obtained Emperor Franz Jo
seph's signature to the declaration
of war on Serbia by fraud. On July
28 he laid a report before the em
peror, asking him immediateely to
declare war in order to prevent the
entente from preserving peace.
"I do not think it impossible," he
observed '"that the triple entente
powers may make another attempt
to bring about a peaceful settlement
of the conflict, should not a declara
tion of war create a clear situation."
lteported HOntlllt icH Opened.
Then he reported, that hostilities
had already been opened, as the
Serbians had fired from Danube
steamers near Temeskubin on Aus-tro-Hungarian
troops. The latter had
returned the fire and an engagement
developed. The text of the declara
tion w hich he made the aged monarch
sign ran as follows:
"The Austro-Hungarian government
was itself compelled to have recourse
to force of arms in order to safeguard
its rights and interests, the more so
as Serbian troops have already at
tacked a detachment of an Austro
Hungarian army near Temeskubin."
Having received the amperor's sig
nature, Berchtold. it is declared,
struck out the reference to the en
casement, and despatched the decla
ration with its text thus altered and
reporting the change to the emperor
as follows:
"As the news of the engagement
near Temeskubin was not confirmed,
and hoping for the subsequent ap
proval of your majesty. I have taken
it upon myself to eliminate the ref
erence to the attack by Serbian troops
near Temeskubin."
There was never an engagement
near Temeskubin, and the whole story
seems to have been invented in order
more easily to induce the old emperor
to si3i the declaration of war.
Xeiv Orleans Meeting Also Names
Committee to Consider Issues
of Xational Importance.
NEW ORLEANS. Sept. 23. (Spe
cial.) Portland delegates received
substantial recognition at the annual
convention of the associated adver
tising clubs of the world yesterday.
The Portland representatives were
placed in charge of the campaign for
the presidential candidacy of A. G.
Newmeyer of New Orleans to succeed
William C. Darcy.
The race for the highest office in
the world's advertising fraternity is
a three-cornered affair, the other
two candidates being V. H. Jones of
New York and E. T. Meredith of Des
Moines. Newmeyer has already been
assured of strong support. He is
southern vice-president of the asso
ciation and associate publisher of the
New Orleans Item.
W. P. Strandborg was appointed
chairman of the resolutions commit
tee which will consider such national
issues as the co-operation of capital
and labor for the expansion of pro
duction and for the programme the
association will adopt in assisting the
federal and local authorities in their
efforts to reduce living costs.
With Strandborg on the committee
are W. J. Brown of New York and
Fred E. Johnston of Dallas, Texas.
Tonight. immediately after In
dianapolis had been selected for the
1920 convention, the . Portland dele
gates met with the Indianapolis dele
gation and arrangements were made
whereby the organization will co
operate with the Portland shrine
executive committee to the mutual
advantage of both the shrine and the
advertising conventions of next year.
J my has a daughter. Cleopatra, who f
I knows nothing of ilove or the world
or its aomgs. uieopaira is, oi course,
played and sung, and beautifully too,
by Mabel Wllber. Ptolemy also has
a wife, a second wife to be exact, and
stepmother to Cleopatra. May Wal
lace makes this role sparkle.
Cleopatra takes music lessons from
an ambitious chap named Ptarmigan,
played smoothly and sung richly by
Henry Coote. A large element of
comedy is added constantly by Det
mar Poppen, guised as the royal
weather bureau. Lee Daly and Ed
ward Sedan are Egyptian police. The
wizard finds himself forced to make
good his boast that he can make the
Nile rise at his command, and just
when he is in the midst of his in
cantations, the long arm of coinci
dence enters and the river overflows
its banks. As a reward the wizard
claims the hand of Cleopatra, who
in her turn is having an adventure
with her music master. That's about
all there is to the story.
Of course the music teacher wins
Cleopatra and the poor old wizard
is properly punished.
The Egyptian ensemble numbers
are really beautiful and the dancing
is good. A dozen worth-while solos
by the principals and duets, trios and
group singing combine to please.
The cast is as follows:
Kibosh, a Persian magician making a
professional tour of Egypt. Oscar Figman;
Abydos. his apprentice. Eva Olivotti; Ptole
my, king of Egypt, George Natanson;
Simoona, Ptolemy's second wife. May Wal

naught of love. Mabel Wllber; Ptarmigan,

a permanent niche in the hall of mus
ical comedy fame. In its revival at
the Alcazar this week, it is risplend
ent with youthful beauty and charm.
Its music is Victor Herbert's, tune
ful and melodious, and being quite
devoid of syncopated jazzy notes. Its
melodies adhere closely to pleasin
waltz themes and big ensembles with
a dramatic solo for every individual
The costumes and scenery are ef
fective in color contrasts and inge
nuity of design. Act one is a public
square in Alexandria, with a barge
drawn up at a marble landing, the
wine-red hangings of the boat afford
ing a fine splash of color against the
vivid blue of a sky beyond, and
flashes of the Nile winding its way
into the hills.
In act two a stone-gray wall inter'
venes between the gorgeously-ter-
raced roof of King Ptolemy's palace
and the distant city. Act three is the
interior of the Egyptian King's pri
vate pyramid, and since the stage
directo. and the scenic artist at th
Alcazai probably know as much as
any of us about the interior of private
pyramids, its authenticity cannot be
disputed. Nice little mummy cases
and miles of gloom made this scene
uncannily atmospheric.
The story concerns the perigrina
tions of one Kibosh, a Persian . ma
gician on a professional jaunt through
Europe, accompanied by Abydos, his
apprentice. Oscar Figman is the ma
gician who later is called wizard, and
Eva Olivotti is his apprentice, garbed
as a saucy boy.
The wizard comes into the estates

Favor Lost With Wilson Because
Advice Incorrect.
WASHINGTON. Officials and dip-
lomaw; refuse to comment on that
CoJ. Edward M. House has been un
officially relieved of his official duties
as confidante and adviser to President
Wilson. But all signs here are cor
roborative of the details contained in
the cable and there is much to indi
cate the relations between the two
men have materially changed and
that the end of Col. House's pictures
que role is at hand.
Inquiry develops that Col. House
for some time has been entirely out
of touch with the president's aims
and plans for the future, excepting
through information which he, as
well as any one might glean from the
newspapers. At the state department
there is necessarily silence, but it is
significant that officials do not even
know precisely where Col. House is
or what he is doing. There have
been no exchanges with him recently,
so far as known, and it is pretty well
established that, the president has not
asked his advice on any of the recent
features of the peace treaty develop
ments. The understanding in diplomatic
circles is that there has never been
any break between the president and
the Colonel over any specific mattr,
but that whatever coolneess developed
resulted from the fact that the
Colonel's forecast of coming events
did not square with the stern actuali
ties when the time came for the test.
Owing to the secrecy with which
Colonel House always worked in his
capacity of "unofficial adviser" it is
naturally difficult to understand Just
where his advice turned out more or'
less unprofitable to the president. It
is said- here that the unfavorable af
termath to the sending of unofficial
advisers to Russia came as the re
sult of agreements between Lloyd
George and Colonel House, and that
the inspiration came from the latter.
It is likewise reported that the presi
dent's open letter to the Italians,
which complicated matters, was upon
the suggestion of the Colonel, and
there is good ground for believing
that Colonel House was largely re
sponsible for the yielding to Japan
in the Shantung cbntroversy.
In this latter case the-testimony be
fore the senate foreign relations com
mittee has shown that Secretary of
State Lansing and Colonel House
took diametrically opposite views re
garding the necessity of yielding to
Japan. Mr. Lansing had the sup
port of General Tasker H. Bliss and
Henry White, but Colonel House had
the sanction of Balfour, and the re
sult is known to all.
This victory of Colonel House
marked the apogee of his power at
Paris, according to diplomats here.
But Mr. Lansing did not yield with
out warning the president of the
consequences sure to follow from de
parting from the vital principle in
this important case. As develop
ments have borne out Mr. Lansing's
prediction the advice of Colonel
House naturally suffered as a con
sequence. .
It is understood here now that Mr.
Lansing made a much harder fight
on the Shantung matter than is gen
erally known. Many of his. conferees
expected him to resign, but it is ap
parently contrary to Mr. Lansing's
understanding of his duty to increase
rather than minimize difficulties by
yielding to. his own views. In other
words, he is reported to have felt that
his first duty, under the circum
stances, was to assist the president to
the Dest or his ability, and this as
sistance is said to have taken the
form of sinking his own personal
pride, but warning the president that
the road mapped out by Colonel
House could not be followed and
America's principles followed too.
After the collapse of principle re
garding Shantung and the immediate
difficulties it created for the peace
treaty, Colonel House naturally felt
that his leadership had been put un
der a strain, according to diplomats.
Nothing definite concerning ex
changes of views between the presi
dent and his unofficial adviser has
since appeared, it is pointed out.
But meantime other forecasts made
by Colonel House were being put to
the test, it is explained. The Colonel.
his enthusiasm for the league of
nations, had predicted that the Ameri
can people would- overwhelmingly in
dorse it. that few senators, .would
dare oppose the idealism it portrayed
tnat tne president s power was such
that a word from him would dissi
pate all apposition.
Other American delegates had told
the president a very different story.
They had predicted a battle royal and
sought to emphasize rather than
minimize the difficulties. Here ae-in
they have proved right and Colonel
House wrong.
Trouble Widespread in ew York
and Pennsylvania; Legion Offers
Aid in Handling Riots.
PITTSBURG. Sept. 23. Disorders,
so much feared by police authorities
in the steel strike zone, were in evi
dence last night in several places in
the Pittsburg district. The most seri
ous occurrence was at Newcastle, Pa.,
60 miles from here, in which seven
persons were shot in a riot at a Car
negie mill gate.
With the exception of a small dis
turbance in Clairton in the morning,
the opening day of the big strike
passed in - comparative quiet. With
the coming of night, however, when
night shifts were going on duty,
there, was disorder reported from a
number of places.
During a melee in front of the zinc
plant of the American Steel & Wire
ompany at Donora early this even-
ng, one man was shot and slightly
wounded. Several other persons suf
fered minor bruises.
Workers In Auto Stopped.
The trouble started when the crowd
attempted to stop an automobile, car
rying alleged strike-breakers, from
entering the plant. The crowd rushed
the car when it failed to halt, but was
driven back when the mill guards
opened fire. Donora police and guards
dispersed the crowd.
Riding into a crowd at the Fourth
street entrance of the Carnegie corn
pan's plant at Homestead, after it had
refused to disperse, state troopers last
night, arrested 11 men and turned
them over to the Homestead police.
Another outbreak occurred shortly
afterward at Dickson street and
Fourth avenue. Homestead, where a
large crowd assembled. The state po
lice charged and, it is allied, used
theif sticks freely. Several men suf
fered bruises, but none was seriously
hurt. At Clairton last night state
roopers were called to break up a
gathering of steel workers near a
steel plant. "Two arrests were made
and the crowd was dispersed. Earlier
in the day the troopers and a crowd
were in a clash in which 14 persons
were arrested for alleged rioting.
Two Injured at Karrell.
Two men were slightly injured in
an outbreak which occurred at- the
entrance to the Farrell. Pa., plant of
the American Steel & Wire company
last night during the change of shifts.
The two men were attacked by a
crowd of about 2000 persons while en
tering the plant. The trouble was
soon quelled by mill guards.
A crowd of men attempted to in
timidate workers at the entrance of
the Duquesne plant of the Carnegie
Steel company last night, during the
change of day and night shifts. They
were dispersed by Duquesne police.
Eight men were arrested.
Tito Dead First Day.
The first fatality to result from
the strike in ' Farrell occurred last
night when Alexander Russ was killed
by a fellow boarder, because he had
not struck.
One man was killed, two state
troopers were shot and many other
persons less seriously injured tonight
in a second outbreak at Farrell. The
fight occurred near the American
Steel & Wire plant when,' it is said,
members of a crowd threw bricks and
other missiles at the state police and
local officers. Paul Prouse died as
the result of a bullet wound received
during the melee. Private Frank Mll-
igan and Sergeant Smith, state troop
ers, were struck by bullets and the
former is in a serious condition.
The East Liberty post of the Ameri.
can Legion tonight adopted a reso
lution declaring that if the necessity
arises, it will offer its services to
the proper authorities to aid in main
taining law and order.
Difficulties in Production Expe
rienced by English Tiller of Soil
LONDON. (Correspondence of the
Associated Press.)' The farmer's task
of making -two blades grow where one
had grown before is becoming In
creasingly difficult in England, ac
cording to statistics published here
today. Some of his dissiculties are
set out as follows:
Farm laborers before the war re
ceived $4 a week; now they get $10
Every horse must have a weekly half
holiday. If 20 horses are employed
on a farm, this represents an annual
loss of $750 at 75 cents per half day
per week. Before the war steam plow
ing cost $1.75 per acre. It now costs
J4.50 . Coal, before the war. cost $5
a ton; it now costs J 12.50. Nitrate of
soda has advanced from $45 a ton to
$125: binder twine from $175 a ton
to $650. a blacksmith's, carpenter's
and saddler's work is from 150 to 200
per cent higher.
On top of all this the farmer's in

Owners of Summer Homes Bury
Possessions in Frantic Prep
arations for Flight.
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23. Six sum
mer homes have been destroyed and
more than 60 more are in danger
from a forest fire, which, driven by
50-mile-an-hour-gale, is sweeping
Pacoima and adjacent canyons in the
Angeles national forest about 26
miles northeast of this city.
The fire fighting force numbers
more than 500 and they are being di
rected by R. H Charlton, supervisor
of the forest.
"The fire is the worst ever ex
perienced in southern California,"
Supervisor Charlton said last night.
Dense clouds of smake overhunk
this city and ashes were falling every.
where. Owners of summer homes in
the canyon worked frantically late
yesterday in removing or burying
their possessions. Several were near
ly trapped by the flames.
The fire which has been raging in
the San Gabriel canyon region, also
in the Angeles forest, was reported
to be serious.
Quarrel Between Two Communities
Arose Many Years Ago.
PRESIDIO, Tex. Bitter as the fued
between Athens and Sparta is that
which has existed for years between
Cuchillo Parado and Coyame, two
Chihuahua towns that figured in the
news recently during the latest puni
tive expedition into Mexico.
The quarrel between the two com
munities arose many years ago over
the question of boundaries. At first
there was bloodshed; now there is
merely smouldering hatred, which is
kept a live largely because Cuchillo
Parado favors Villa and Coyame Is
strongly federal in its sympathies.
Cuchillo Parado, is a city of
widows and orphans," said Cesme
Bengoachea, Mexican consul at Pre
sidio, commenting upon the strong.
ill feeling that prevails between the
two places. "So many men have been
slaim in battle that there are few
males of fighting afe left.
"The present official name of the
town is the 'Twenty-fifth of March," in
commeemoration of a battle fought
there between the Mexicans and the
French on that date in the year 1862.
The name of the town was changed
by the Mexican governornment be
cause 'Cuchillo Parado" 'upright
knife" had an unpleasant ring to it.
The natives of the place, however,
continue to tue the descriptive name,
which originated from the peculiar
sharpness of the mountain ridge in
the region." ,
Scott Says There's Something
Unusual About Tanlac
Overcame Troubles.
"I am now past my seventy-fifth
birthday, but I declare I don't feel
that old by a god many years." said
C. F. Scott of 7039 Tpata street. Ta
coma. Washington, in relating his re
markable experience with Tanlac at
the French Drug store, recently. Mr.
Scott came to Tacoma about a" year
ago from Roseburg, Oregon, where he
was a contracting carpenter for a
number of years.
"During all the years of my life,"
he continued, "I have never seen or
heard of the equal of Tanlac. Why.
at the time I began taking it. about
60 days ago,-I only weighed one hun
dred and fifty pounds, having dropped
down as a result of my aliments, from
one hundred and ninety pounds. But

count of stomach trouble and other
complications that I just had to give
up trying to do any work. I had no
appetite and what little I did manage
to force down would ferment, causing
gas and severe cramping pains in my
stomach. This gas would get up into
my chest and make it almost impos
sible to get a good breath. I used to
be constantly belching up my food,
sour and undigested and just felt mis
erable all the time. I also had rheu
matic pains in my legs which made 'it
difficult for me to get around, and I
could not walk any distance without
feeling tired out and 'all in. My kid

this, together with my nervousness

BUFFALO. N. Y., Sept. 23. Dis
turbances growing out of the steel
strike resulted in three riot calls for
the Lackawanna police last night. In
one instance the 52 policemen on the
city's force, headed by Chief Gilson,
were met with a snower oi bricks
and stones from a crowd of strikers
who had gathered near the steel plant
gates. Three men, two of them strik
ers, were arrested on charges of in
citing to riot.
Thefirst sign of trouble came late
yesterday afternoon, when the police
were notified that 7000 persons had
assembled near the steel plant gates.
In a fight which preceded the
arrival of the police, a Spaniard who
till was working at the plant, was
knocked down. His head struck the
curb and he has a bad cut and pos
sibly a fractured skull. The police
dispersed the crowd with some dif
ficulty. Stones were hurled at the
policemen and several were hit.
None were seriously injured.
3000 Men Chase 200.
At 7:30 last night as 200 workers
were coming out of gate No. 3 of the
LacKawanna plant, they were met by
a crowd estimated at 3000. One of
the loyal employes, a Spaniard, was
chased by a crowd until he fled into
a house. The police went to the plant
gates and forced the crowd to leave.
At 7:45 another riot call came in.
A Buffalo man had been badly beaten
by a crowd of men who overheard
him talking about his plans to get a
Job on the steel company's private
police force. As . a result of this
fight, the police arrested three men.
Two of the four steel plants in
Buffalo and Lackawanna affected by
the strike closed down yesterday.
Strike leaders claimed that 8000
men had Joined the walkout, but
the best estimates available from all
sources indicated that the number
was about 5000.
Boy Who Disappeared Two Years

NEW YORK. Detectives are
searching New York and New Jersey
for Mrs. Jean Stevenson and her
9-year-old son, William Beresford
Stevenson, who disappeared from their
home in Savannah, Ga, two years
ago. The boy is heir to $10,000 from
the estate of his father. William J.
Stevenson, a wealthy florist of Sa
vannah, and the detectives looking for
"Billy" are in the employ of the
executors of the estate.
Before and after the father's death
a country-wide search was made for
the boy and his mother without suc
cess. Mr. Stevenson is said to have
spent a small fortune trying to find
them, and when he died he left a
trust fund for his son.
Searchers in the west say that the
mother may be selling books in the
east under the name of Mrs. Walter
Le Roy or Mrs. Katherine Cooley.
Her maiden name was Cooley. She
is 36 years old and has blond hair
and dark eyes.
Mother and boy are said to be un

President Wilson and that he had ac

She had been offered the contract
to make the artificial roses to be used

president's decision was such a dis
