PARIS. April 1. (Special Corre
spondence.) L'Avenue de l'Opera. Rue
do la Paix, Rue Royal, Rue de Rlvoll,
Boulevard des Capucines, Boulevard des"
Italiens. .Avenue des Champs Elysees,
Le Bols! What pictures these words
recall to those who know and love
Paris, for all those thousands who are
accustomed to come in the Spring,
when all Paris is decked like a bride
awaiting her bridegroom.
Stand ir-gf on the center island of the
Place de l'Opera, where radiate Ave
broad streets, the very center and heart
of Paris, how chanpred is the view today
from that of a year ago- Here, where
the traffic was always so congested,
where each five minutes all vehicles
fro in K east or we st must be stopped
by the police to allow other vehicles
Eoinjt north or south to pass, today one
t-an walk at leisure in all directions;
the fiacres and autos come and go so
seldom. One can cross at will with
never a thought of the distance from
the sidewalk to the first island, nor.
In fact, of heeding the islands at all.
All the auto omnibuses are in military
As I stood there late in the after
noon looking about me and feeling the
deep heart-pulse of a people tried as
never a people were tried before, I
realized in part the tragedy that men
and women are living today. It was
warm and sunny, as days sometimes
are in Paris in March. The chestnut
trees on the boulevards were showing
their first tints of green and the spar
rows were hunting about in them for
lodgings. Nature was fulfilling in si
lence her accustomed role, and man,
what was man doing?
Hundreds Saunter In Sunshine.
There were hundreds of people saun
tering in the sunshine. Women with
little children glad to leave their som
ber apartments and more somber
thoughts. Of 20 women who passed, I
counted 14 in mourning. This is not a
high average as you meet them
throughout France. There were men
from all the countries of the world,
excepting three. Indians with their
white-Jeweled turbans; Japanese, who
rival the French In their polite man
nerisms: Senegalese, big and black,
with their thin ankles and flat feet;
Knglish and Belgians and Greeks and
Spaniards and Russians. And hun
dreds of convalescent wounded French
There came, gaily amusing them
selves, a group of Zouaves. French
soldiers from Morocco, glad for the sun
shine. Of six of them there were only
lx legs, and others had empty sleeves!
An old father, stately and aristocratic,
passed with his young son on his arm.
The son wore a soldier's uniform and
a cross of the Lepion of Honor on his
breast. He walked with shuffling: feet
and with eyes fixed eyes that seemed
to look Into the rast. seeing the hor
rors of the battlefield.
Spahls and AVIfe lass.
Then came a Spahls. a Turkish cav
alryman, his wife leaning on his arm.
His entire head, excepting his nose
.and eyes, was enveloped in bandages.
His kepi seemed too small.
Then there came a French soldier,
small and young, only a boy of 21, who
had had his feet amputated just in
front of the ankles. His feet, what
was left of them, and his legs to the
knees, were enveloped in bandages.
He wore the dark navy blue uniform
of the Alpine chasseur (scout), the
bravest of the French army. By means
of- a cano he was relearning to walk.
It was painful, and so difficult! and
no pltlfvl! Drops of sweat were on
hfs face. When I saw him my nerve
and heart failed me. He saw my emo
tion and raised his cap. Our soldiers
of Franco are that way. They appre
ciate and know.
Kach day about 4f"0 the British Vol
unteers in Rikie, who are doing am
bulance work, acting as orderlies,
chauffeur, etc.. come in their auto
mobiles from the suburbs to have their
"tea" at Clro's or at the Cafe de la
Paix. They are gay and they make
lots of noise as they sing their Eng-
lisn war song:
"It's a long way to Tipperary.
It's a Ions: way to po.
It's a long? way to Tipperary.

These are not British soldiers, but are
as we call them, "bonnie volonte"
one sees few British soldiers in Paris.
At the head of tho Avenue de l'Opera
stands the sumptuous National Opera-
House. the most costly in the world.
Placard Is Bead.
Its doors are closed, the shutters
are drawn down one sees a placard,
which, when translated, reads:
To be cloned until four months
aftrr tlio war. Artists and per
sonnel scrvinff their country. Viva
The buildings everywhere are deco
rated with flags put up the first of
last August and now tattered by wind
and stained by rain. They hang mostly
in graceful groups. French, Russian,
Belgian. Knglish, Serbian, Japanese,
with the Red Cross flag among them
Half of Stores Closed.
L'Avenue de l'Opera has a strange
aspect. One-hair or the stores are
closed, the heavy iron shutters are
pulled down, and in one entrance there
is pasted a paper bearing, written in
ink: "Closed because of mobilization.
Patrons and clerks are mobilized. Vive
la France." But business is carried on
in front of these closed shutters, and
this is what gives .the stately, digni
fied Avenuo de l'Opera an aspect
blzarro and grotesque.
Facli morning venders stretch strings
across the shutters and by means
clothes pins, postal cards are hung in
rows for sale. On tables constructed o
boxes, toy cannons, miniature German
casques and all sorts of small objects
souvenirs of the war are exposed for
sale. About these tables, seated on
are the venders old

Uniforms Are Offered.
In the big- tailor shops the windows
are filled with uniforms. They are
bright and gray. But when the wounded
soldiers come from the front we find on
them a heterogenous lot of clothing', for

these men are not accustomed to out-of-door

NEWBERG, Or., April 17. (Special.)
: The meeting last night of the gover
nors of the Commercial Club to discuss
the feasibility of having an agricultural
and horticultural fair held here this
Fall was enthusiastic.
To enlist the co-operation of farmers
and fruit-growers,, meetings will be
held at the sehoolhouses in the vicinity.
Prizes will be offered to boys and girls
on various lines of industry. The fol-
owing were appointed as an advisory
committee in arranging details, selec

the First National Bank; E. J. Nadeau,
secretary of tho Ncwberg Meat Packing
Company, and 1. A. Morris, of the
New-berg- Land Company.
Newberg is the center of one of the
most productive sections of the vV illam

adjourned a conference was held by
the governors and advisory commit

Signs of War Xot Apparent.
What impresses the visitor to Ger
many most forcibly at this time is the
fact that in the country proper there
are practically no indications of war.
Trains are running lust as regularly
as they did in time of peace, and there
is considerable traffic as far as pas
sengers are concerned. Such a thing
as a train Delng late either in start
ng or arriving upon its destination is
matter practically unheard of. I
have traveled thousands and thousands
of miles by railroad, through Germany.
within the past few weeks, and upon
no occasion did our train ever arrive
as much as a minute late. It may be
said tnat Just How the train service
is exclusively in charge of the mill
tary authorities in Germany.
Another feature which is observed
at once by the foreign visitor to the
r-amenana ouring the present war
times is the absolute and positive
obedience with which every German
lives up to every rule, order or com
mand which comes to them, either
through the civil or military authori
ties or rrom tne police.
System of Espionage Thorough.
There exists today in Germany one
of the most thorough systems of
espionage that can be imagined. It i
utterly impossible for a stranger to
enter Germany without the necessary
passport, which must contain the
caller's photograph, or without add!
tional documentary proof that the per
son about to cross the border is just
wnat he represents himself to be. If
there is the slightest doubt in the
minds of those who pass upon an ao
pllcant s appeal to .the right to enter
Germany such permission is not only
reiused, but the applicant is detained
sometimes for days or weeks, until
such time as the party positively has
estaDiisnea ms ngnt to travel.
ii is also utterly impossible for a
foreigner visiting Germany Just now,
even after he successfully has passed
tne irontier, to remain in any city,
town or village more than a few hours
without letting the police and other
authorities know all about himself. In
Essen, for instance, where the famous
krupp gunworks are situated, a hotel

Engineer Declares Washout Big Help.
500 Men to Be Employed in
ELLENSBURG, Wash.. April 17.
(Special.) C. W. Crownover, Govern
ment engineer, in charge of the big
conservation at Lake Keechelus, stated
that he expects to complete the north
wing of the big dam this season. The
big dam is to hold back the waters
for the highllne canal, which is pending
tne sale or bonds.
.e aeciarea tnat the season was
opening up in fine shape and that they
would be employing about 500 or more
men within the next month, and after
that about 700 or 800, thus finishing
the work this year on the north wing,
and next season completing the work
on the entire dam.
Mr. Crownover said: "The going out
or tne temporary dam, which caused
so much excitement a few weeks ago.
was In reality a great help to th
work, as the lake lowered a great deal
faster than it could have done under
the prearranged plans. This fall of ths
water in the lake has caused the bank
in many places to cave in."

be completed this year the outlet cod

short time in a similar manner to
flour. As a matter of fact, they are
never short of potatoes in Germany.
The one important thing done by the
government was to tlx the price of
potatoes. This was done to avoid spec
ulation and at the same time to place
everybody on the same level. The
price of potatoes per 100 pounds was
formerly from 88 cents to $1. Now the
farmers in Germany ask, according to
the fixed price, for their potatoes, and
according to quality, from $1.50 to J1.75
per 100 pounds. A good deal of whisky
or "schnapps" was manufactured in
former years out of potatoes, but since
the government took a band in the food
situation distillers are no longer per
mitted to make potato schnapps.
A like restriction -has been placed
on barley, which is used principally
In connection with the manufacture
of beer. Today the German breweries
are allowed to use only 60 per cent
of what former quantity of barley
they needed, and the price of beer
since the war has been raised B0 cents
per 100 litres. This restriction in the
use of barley was done principally
in order to get more fodder for the
Supply or Oats Plentiful.
There is a sufficient quantity of oats
on hand to last for a long time to
come. But under the system of econ
omy in GerYnany, especially as prac
ticed since the beginning of the war,
oats are also measured out to horse
owners, and the quantity each horse
is allowed to eat each has been fixed.
As far as meat is concerned, there
is sufficient quantity on hand at all
times, and absolrtely no restrictions
have been placed upon its sale. In
order to save on foider. cattle owners
have been' requested to kill off as
many of their cattle as they can af
ford to Uo now, so that the meat may
be refrigerated and kept in cold stor
age for general use. A large number
of up-to-date refrigerator plants have
been established throughout Germany.
The increase In food prices has not
been a heavy one since the beginning
of the war, and there is little com
plaint throughout Germany because of
tho raise in prices for some of the
mmodities. The people in general
have settled down to the belief that
every article or rood needed ry tne
army or navy must nrst. De suppiiea
and should there be anything left, the
rest may go to the civilian population.
There is an ample supply or canned
goods of all sorts and the price re
mains the same.

ENTERPRISE WINS DEBATE
With Defeat of Prineville, Salem Is
lo Re Ulct for State Title.
KNTERPRISB, Or., April 17. (Spe
cial.) In the semi-final high school
debate Enterprise defeated Prineville
Friday night. This leaves Enterprise
and Salem to contest for the champion
ship of the state and possession of the
cup oirerea by tne university or jre-
gon. The final debate between tbese
toams will be held in Salem on May 8.
Prineville was represented by Stacy
Smith and Frederich L. Rice. On the
Enterprise team were Willard Lewis
and Harold Venske. hTe judges were
Rev. Bertram A. Warren, of The Dalles;
A. C. Strange, of Baker, and John
Glrdler ,of La Grande.
The state debating contest was di
vided into eight districts. Prineville
and Enterprise met to settle the East
ern Oregon championship. Salem al
ready has-taken first place in its half
and the final debate next month will
settle honors for the state.
Warrants for TSeformatory Inmates.
CENTRALIA, Wash.. April 17. (Spe
cial.) Another warrant is to be issued
for the arrest of Curtis England and
railroad tracks the embankments have
been ploughed and seeded. Belgium
has been turned into a great harvest
field, and altogether there will be more
wheat gathered this year than ever be
fore in the history of Germany.
There is every indication that tho
crop of 1915 will turn out to be at least
a fair one, and many look upon this
vear's crop as one of greatest blessing.
When the new harvest is gathered It
will not be necessary to use it for
months, and with the additional sup
ply which will bo received from the
new lands sowed the Germans feel sat
isfied that the bread question, which
is the principal food issue, need not give
them any cause for worrlment.
Precautions "Will Be Continued.
Of course the present system of bread
cards and other economic precautionary
measures will be continued right along,
so that no matter how long the war
lasts the German government feels
that the bread question has been abso
lutely and positively solved.
Again it must be considered that tne
blockade against the Importation of
foodstuffs is not considered a close and
positive blockade, and 1 know, and I
have it from the highest authoritiy,
that grain and flour in plenty are be
ing shipped into Germany from outside
sources, and the strangest part of it all
is that most of this grain comes direct
from Russia. It would appear that
anything on the contraband list can be
had in Germany, with the blockade and
other restrictions, by simply paying a
good price, and in gold.
The German government, according
to Its calculation of the amount ot
wheat and rye on hand knows that
there is sufficient quantity to feed the
entire population, including the pris
oners of war, for about a year. They
assert that it will not be necessary to
use any of the crop of 1915 until after
Whatever quantity of that is in Ger
many today and that also refers to
benzine is held by the government,
and none can be bought anywhere, ex
cepting for military purposes. Benzine,
which was seized by the government,
is only supplied to apothecaries, drug
gists and for the use of ambulances.
There is a large quantity of benzine
on hand, but the average automobile
today uses what is known as benzol,
which is made out of coal and coal tar
principally. Benzol works almost as
well as does gasoline, except that it is
said to be a little harder on the en
gines in the automobiles.
As far as labor is concerned, nobody
is idle in Germany today. At the very
outbreak of the war and for the first
six "weeks or more, times were rather
hard and business practically at a
standstill. The manufacturers had to
discharge many of their employes be
cause of scarcity of orders for work
and not knowing just how long con
ditions would prevail under those cir
cumstances. But gradually confidence
was restore.! in business circles and
today all the factories are running,
and especially those where war sup
plies are being turned out are working
overtime. In many places work con
tinues seven days and nights in every
Of course a large number of men
who formerly worked in factories in
every capacity are today at the front.
Many have been killed in battle, m.iny
seriously wounded and others are be
lnar cared for in the many hospitals
which have been established through
out Germany. In some places the
average number of men away from
tlie factories because of the war is
from 10 to 23 per cent. But as business
has started to boom again, the places
of the employes now righting at the
front have been taken by Kirls. and
In many instances retired merchants
