" Another document gives an account of the conversation between Field Marshal von Hlndenburir. General Ludendorff and Chancellor von Beth- mann-Hollweg at Pless.on-January 9, 1917, at which Von Bethman-Hollweg said: "U-boat war is the last card. It is a very grave decision. If the military authorities regard it as in dispensable I am not in a position to deny it" Von Bethmann-Hollweg also said: "America's aid. if she comes in. will consist of foodstuffs for England, financial assistance, flying machines and a volunteer army." Von Hindenburg: "We will fix them all right. The opportunities for. un restricted U-boat war are as favor able now as they ever will be. We can and must carry it out." 1 SUGAR BROKER PROTESTS fCopyrlsht by the New York World. Pub lished by Arrangement.) LONDON, May 26. (Special Cable.) Great interest and curiosity attach to the recent Journey of Arthur Bal four, former premier, and until re cently foreign secretary to the Vati can where he has had an audience with Pope Benedict XV. This diplo matic mission is expected to have a very significant bearing on the Irish problem and the relations of -England and the Vatican as they are af fected by the political activities of Sinn Fein. Mr. Balfour was undoubtedly sent to Rome after San Remo with the hope of forestalling a visit of the Irish bishops summoned there for the canonization of the Irish saint, Olive Plunkett. The Idea was to influence the pope to Induce the Irish hierarchy to disassociate itself from Sinn Fein, if not to denounce it, the correspon dent on the Daily Mail in Rome writes: "1 understand that Arthur Balfour's long audience with the pope last week was devoted chiefly to a government statement of the case of Ireland, and that his holiness will tomorrow hear the other side from the Sinn Fein leaders assembled here. He has al ready conferred with the Irish bish ops. It is possible that the pope may express to the Irish pilgrims his de sire for Irish peace." Attempt Latest of Many. One of .the main planks of British hostility to home rule is that it means "Rome rule," but Mr. Balfour's visit is only the latest-of many attempts of the British government to enlist this supposedly baneful Vatican power on their side. With Leo XII such an ef fort practically succeeded, but the re ception of the pope's intervention by Catholic Ireland is not ll'sely to en courage Benedict XV to follow his example, even if he is so disposed, of which there is no evidence. When Cardinal Secretary of State Merry Del VaL whose angliphile ten dencies are well known, ordered that Archbishop Stoner, dean of the Eng lish Catholic hierarchy, be the cele brant of high mass at the Plunkett canonization ceremony, the Irish bish ops entered a strong protest that an Englishman should be thus associated with this Irish canonization, and Merry Del Val was forced to com promise by naming an Italian prelate Instead. Archbishop Mannix of Melbourne, now enroute for Ireland and Rome via the United States, is the leader of the Sinn Fein movement in Austra lia, where, according to Agency dis patches, his departure from Mel bourne was marked by scenes rival ing those when Premier Hughes re turned from Paris with the rich prizes he secured fy Australasia. The British government is anxious that Archbishop Mannix be prevented from going to Ireland, but Mr. Bal four, on the contrary, found that a powerful influence is being exerted in the Vatican to secure for him the suc cession to Walsh as archbishop of Dublin, the latter being disabled by age and enfeebled health. Archbishop Mannix. as aggressive a Sinn P'einer as the archbishop of Dub lin, would give a new and still more carious turn to events there, and his mere visit to the country is causing the gravest apprehension at Dublin castle. KnrplUa Xloaali Invited. An invitation has been addressed by the British government to the leader of the Egyptian nationalists, who claim independence for their country, to come to London to negotiate terms. This action is thought in some quar ters to prelude a similar invitation to Sinn Fein. The Egyptian nationalists replied that they must have an out line of Great Britain's ideas of the terms of peace before deciding whether the journey is worth while. This invitation follows the futile at tempt on the part of the Milner com mission to get into touch with them In Kgypt. Similarly- it is rumored that Chief Secretary Hamar Greenwood in Ire land has fruitlessly sought negotia tions with . thp Sinn Fein chiefs through an unofficial intermediary. Sinn Fein will .only deal with duly accredited British representatives. and win decline all meetings even with these until Britain's army of oc cupation is withdrawn. Thus a com plcte deadlock has arisen and is likely to continue until either the Sinn Fein is beaten or the British government is convinced that war on Ireland is not worth the candle. CHARGES AGilSST REFTVERS HELD rXTKHJXTJED. Caoner Doubtful About Cost of Refining Justifying Present Price of Commodity. HOOD RIVER, Or, May 26. (Spe cial.) A recent statement made by H. F. Davidson, blaming sugar' refin ers in part for the serious situation in canning circles at present brought a response from H. M. Haller of Port land, of the Kellcy-Clarke company, manufacturers' agents, who repre sent sugar refiners. Mr. Haller wrote: . "The refiners are not making as much profit today in refining and selling sugar as. they did in 1P1S under government supervision. The cost of refining has materially in creased since 1918. "I read with interest your remarks to the growers and I think they were timely. If the jobbers and retailers stock up heavily this year on high priced goods which cannot be used, prices in the future will go much lower than they would otherwise." - '. Replying to his letter, Mr. David son, who is vice-president of A. Ru pert & Co., one of Oregon's largest canners, 3aid: "Taking your statements in the ab stract, I should say that no complaint could be made acainst the refiners. On the other hand, I am still of the opinion that sugar is costing the pub lic too much and am very much in doubt about the cost of. production and refining justifying such prices." Mr. Davidson cent the letter from Mr. Ha-ller to the head office of Ru pert & Co., and the following comment was made by Walter A. Frost of the sales department of the ccr.cern: "I have no dcubt that Kelley Clarke's figures are absolutely correct, and they say figures won't lie, but it has been proved that they will, at times, and I don't think there is any question about the refiners inakin enormous profits cn sugar at present. In any event, I can't see why Mr. Haller should rush into print to de' fend the refiners." U'REN HAS RftDlCUL PUN PRESENT FORM OF STATE GOV ERNMENT WOULD BE UPSET.

TJ'Ren has devised a pro gramme for the absolute upsetting of the present form of state government and if the central labor council likes the proposition, petitions to place it on the November ballot will be circu lated. If the labor council does not approve, the measure will be held in reserve for the 1932 ballot, explains Mr. U'Ren. Under the proposed measure, the state will abolish the senate and have legislative body- of 100 members; the legislature is to elect the gov- mor for an indefinite period. Instead of registering; as republicans and democrats or other party affiliation. voters are to register according to their line of work. Here is the way the legislature is to be composed un der the U'Ren plan: Fourteen fanners. 14 farm house wives. 5 farm laborers, 4 tenant work ers. 3 merchants. 2 manufacturers, 7 railroad and other transportation workers, 3 mall clerks and salesmen. loggers and sawmill workers, 3 professional men (capitalists, law yers, doctors, bankers, priests and editors). 20 town dwelling house wives, 2 women factory workers. 3 women clerks (stenographers, sales women and school teacheis), 1 for fishermen, 1 for actors and other the atrical employes, and 1 for personal and domestic servants.

General Ludendorff and Admiral von Holtzendorff and other naval officers. Admiral von Holtzendorff advocated unrestricted U-boat war, about which however, he asserted the German em peror and Chancellor von Bethmann Hollweg seemed to be lukewarm. During the course of the conversa tions. von Holtzendorff said: "What shall we do if the chancello refuses?" Von Hindenburg: "That is what bothering me, too." Von Holtzendortr: "Then you mus become chancellor. But von Hindenburg repeatedly re fused, saying he could not talk in the roichsiag. Finally the fie Id marshal said: "Well, then we will stick to gether, it must be. We reckon on ar with the United States and have made all preparations. Things cannot et worse.

If visitors to Portland during Rose Festival week ask local residents for a bouquet of roses by all means oblige them, urges Mrs. George Lowenson, 7S4 West Main street. ' During the 1919 festival two young women stopped at her residence and wanted to buy a bouquet of roses. Mrs. Lowenson presented the sisters with large bunches of the "Thousand Wonder" climber, which they sent to their mother at Shoshone, Idaho. Yesterday she was surprised to re ceive a letter from one of the girls, asking her to order a root or slip of this same rose. , "We do not have the beautiful , flowers in Idaho as you have in Port- I land." writes the young woman. "I tried all last summer to get a simi lar rose climber. to yours, but I could not find any to compare to your beau tiful Thousand Wonder climber." 46 TO GET DIPLOMAS La Grande High to Pot Oat Largest Class in History.

Contractors building sewers and constructing streets for the city of Portland are not worried over the in ability of the city to dispose of its improvement bonds. Thirty contract ors appeared before the city council yesterday and were told that tne city would not be in a position to redeem improvement warrants when due un til such time as a market appeared for city bonds.
