Sir Edward Carson Declares
War Will Go on Until Al
lies Achieve Ideals. - "
NATION IS TRANSFORMED
Peril of Submarine Not Minimised,
but "Tjr I Said to Haw Beta
Sufficient to Protect All
lOXDOX. July 31. Sir fcdward Car
ton. Attorney-General in the Aaqulth
Cabinet, has prepared for the Ao
elated Presa a signed statement riving
broad outline of the flret year of the
war from the British standpoint, to
irether with explanation of the unal
terable purpose cf the British govern
ment and people to carry on the war
to a successful conclusion. The state
ment follows: .
"How long- will the war last, and
what will be the result? To such ques
tions as these any British subject can
rive but one answer, and that U that
the war will last until the cause of
the allies ha been brought to a suc
cessful Issue and Europe and the world
hav been relieved from the Ideals In
volved in the aggression of Prussian
"Pea"' la Voeabalary.
"The word peace does not enter Into
our vocabulary at the present time.
It U banished from our conversation as
something Immoral and impossible
under existing circumstances. And yet
we are the most peace-loving people
In toe world a nation which through
out the globe, within its many domin
ions, has Inculcated good government
and' social and industrial progress, and
the free exercise, in Its widest sense,
of clva and religious liberty.
"Rightly or wrongly, we have In the
past drvotM our energies and our in
telligence, not to preparations for war.
but to that social progress which
makes for the happiness and the con
tentment of the mass of our people.
And this, no doubt, is tbe reason why
ether nations imagine - that we, aa a
Nation of shop-keepers, are too Indo
lent and apathetic to light for and
maintain these priceless liberties won
by the men who laid tbe foundation
of our vast empire.
Foea Mistake la Eatlaaatr.
"But they are entirely mistaken In
forming any such estimate of the tem
perament or determination of our peo
ple. Great Britain hates war. and no
nation enters more reluctantly upon
Its horrible and devastating operations;
but at the same, time no nation, when
it Is driven to war by the machinations
of its foes, who desire to filch from
It or from its co-champlons of liberty
any portion of their inherited freedom.
Is more resolved to see the matter
through, at whatever cost, to a success
"A year of war has transformed
Great Britain. Of our navy I need hard
ly speak. It has upheld to the
fullest extent the great traditions
which fill the pages of history in the
past: It has driven K enemies off the
seas: it holds vast oceans free for al
most the uninterrupted commerce of
neutral powers, and it has preserved
these highways for Its own supplies of
material and food almost without in
terruption. Vast Cenaaeree Affected.
"I do not minimise the peril of the
submarines, which ts In process of be
ing dealt with through the careful
and sealous watchfulness of our ad
miralty, but while the submarine has
helped Germans to commit savage and
inhuman atrocities contrary to the
laws of civilization ana against iu
settled rules of international law. it
has done nothing to affect the vast
commerce of our empire.
"Tbe German submarine attack has
signally failed to hamper our military
operations. Under the protection of
our nary, hundreds of thousands of
men have been brought to the fighting
area (rora the most distant parts of
the empire. Troopships are crossing
dally to France and not a single ship
or a single soldier has been lost In
tbe passage. Tbe manner In which
our troops have received their supplies
is a source of satisfaction to us and
admiration to our enemies."
TAX LAW IS INTERPRETED
Bingham Act Does Not Apply AN
ways to New Government Tnlts.
SALEM. Or, July SI. (Special.)
Replying to a letter fronra Henry E.
Reed, Assessor of Multnomah County.
Tax Commissioner Galloway today held
that the Bingham law. placing the
limit on taxes, does not apply to a
newly-created unit of government un
less it baa been created by the sub
division or consolidation of a district
or districts previbusly In existence.
He' also called Mr. Reed's attention
to decision of the Supreme Court
that the law does not apply to cities
and towns because of Its being an
tagonistic to the home rule law. Mr.
OaUowar further- says la his letter
to Mr. Reed:
"Where a maximum millace rate has
been fixed by law. aucb rata cannot
be exceeded." ,

BLOOD OF BROTHERS SHED
"Blessed Be He Who First Extends
Olive Branch," Declare Mes
sage, "Offering Reasonable
Conditions of Peace."
PARIS. July 31. The . text of the
peace appeal just Issued by Pope
Benedict reads as follows:
-When we were called to succeed to
the apostolic throne of Pope Plus X
whose upright and exemplary life was
brought to an end by me irairicioai
atruacle which broke out in Europe,
we. too. felt, after gaxlng fearfully on
the bloody battlefield, the despair or a
father who. witnesses his home torn
asunder and ravaged by a furious tem
pest. We thought with Inexpressible sor
row of our young sons cut down by
death; we felt In our heart, enlarged by
Christian charitableness, the great un
speakable sadness of mothers and wives
made widows before their time, and the
tears of children deprived too soon of
Resolution Is Net Shalcea.
"Participating in our soul in the fear
and anguish of Innumerable families
and well knowing the Imperial duties
Imposed upon us by the mission of
peace- and love with which we have
been confided during these sad days,
we adopted a firm resolve to concen
trate our whole activity and all our
power to reconciliation of the peoples
at wcr. We made a solemn promise to
our divine father, who wished with the
price of His blood to mkke all men
brothers. , ,
"Words of peace and love were the
first we addressed to the nations and
their ohiefa as the supreme-guardian of
their souls. Our affectionate and in
sistent counsels as father and friend
are not heard. This increased our sad
ness, but did not shake our resolution.
We continue with confidence to appeal
to the all-powerful, who holda In His
hands the minds and heart of subjects
as well as kings, imploring Him to end
the great scourge.
All Are Included la Prayer.
"In our humble but ardent prayer we
want to include all the faithful and, to
make it more effective, we have taken
care that It be accompanied by works
of Christian penitence.
"Today, on the sad anniversary oi
the terrible conflict, our heart gives
forth the wish that the war will soon
end. We raise again our voice to ntter
a fatherly cry for peace.
"May this cry. dominating the fright,
ful noise of arms, reach the warring
peoples and their rhiefs and. induce
kindly and more serene Intentions.
"In the name of the Lord God: In the
name of the Father and Lord in heaven:
In the name of the blessed blood or
Jesus tbe Prince of the Redemption of
Humanity we Implore the belligerent
nations before divine providence hence
forth to end the horrible carnage which
for a year has been dishonoring Eu
rope. "This Is the blood of brothers that
Is being shed on land and sea. The
most beautiful regions of Europe this
garden of the world are sown with
bodies and ruins. There where recent
ly fields and factories thrived, cannon
now roar In a frightful manner In a
frenzy of demolition, sparing neither
cities nor villages and spreading the
ravages of death.

many monuments due to the piety and
genius of our forefathers.
"The bitter tears now in tne sanctity
of homes and at the. foot of altars, do
they not also repeat that the price of
the continuation of the contest Is great,
too great? .
"It cannot be said that the Immense
conflict cannot be ended without vio

BRITAIN FIRM 111 STAND
LOS DON NOT INCLINED TO RE
LEASES BELGIAN EXPORTS.
Goods Are Regarded as of Orlgla la
German Territory; Berlin. Ac
cused of Substitution.
WASHINGTON. July 31. Great Brit
ain Is disinclined to permit the unmo
lested passage to this country of ships
loaded at Rotterdam with Belgian
products, according to a message today
from Consul-General Skinner at Lon
don. Belgian goods form a part of the
vast accumulation of American-bound
merchandise tied up In Rotterdam.
While efforts to secure release of all
the Rotterdam shipments have ' been
unsuccessful. It had been hoped that
goods shown to be of bona fide Bel
gian manufacture might be exempted
from the British order-in-ooundl. To
day's advices, however. Indicated that
Great Britain Is not prepared to make
such a concession.
The London government holds ship
ments from Belgium to be the same as
goods of German origin so far as the
British order-ln-council Is concerned,
taking the position that so long as
Belgian territory Is dominated by Ger
many it is practically German terri
tory. Vigorous representation pointing
out the hardships this policy would Im
pose on the already stricken population
of Belgium, were made informally to
the British Embassy here and are dis
posed of in today's dispatch.
The progress of the negotiations has
made it clear that Great Britain fears
exemption of Belgian products would
open a way to market for German
wares. For that reason. It Is said, the
blockade order was extended to Bel
gian goods recently, the action causing
astonishment here because of Its ap
parently unfriendly attitude toward
Belgian merchandise.' '
Since then, however, a legation here
has Informed officials that it had in
formation that when a permit for ship
ment wsj secured by a Belgian ex
porter. German authorities in Belgium
Intervened and would permit the ship
ment to be made only if one-half of the
order was filled with goods of German
oiigln. secretly substituted for Belgian
products. It was said this practice had
grown to a considerable extent oeiore
British officials discovered it and ex
tended the blockade to all Belgian

city funds was an announcement by Dr.
M. B. Marcellus. city health officer, in
a letter to Mayor Albee of proposed
changes in his department that if ap
proved by the executive will effect a
saving of $3,032.50 for the remainder of
the city's fiscal year. Dr. Marcellus
plans to dispense' with the services of
various inspectors in his department
for from one week to four months, and
to make a further large saving totaling
$1300 in supplies. -
Same Efficiency Promised.
"Indications are that the city fi
nances will show a deficit at the end
of the year." he explained yesterday.
"Our force Is ready to meet the emer
gency. If we are able at the end of the
year "to turn back to the treasury $3000,
I think It will appear that we have
don' our part.
"The reduction In the Inspecting force
will not mean less efficiency, for the
work of the bureau of health has been
so systematized that the smaller force
will be able to take care of it. and give
the same service to the public as be
fore." Here is Dr. Marcellus' letter to the
"1 am submitting herewith report
of changes- which are to become ef
fective at once in the Health Bureau.
These changes- take the form of a
reduction of the present force, and I
believe, after a careful canvass of the
situation, that they will result in a
large saving to the bureau without any
corresponding reduction of the service.
"In making thase eliminations the
points considered have only been as
to the effectiveness of the service and
the matter of whether an employe had
family responsibilities or otherwise.

sold over 300,000 Ford cars in the time specified, and profit-sharing
checks of $50 each will be' distributed as rapidly as possible after
August IS, 1915. Retail purchasers who have not yet mailed us
their profit-sharing coupons, properly endorsed, should t do so
without delay. . - .
Our plan to profit-share with retail purchasers of Ford cars during
1914-15 has been most successful. We thoroughly believe ra it,
but, realizing the uncertainty of conditions generally makes it
advisable to defer any ' announcement of future profit-sharing,
until a later date.
We are, however, confident of our inability to reduce costs iof
several months, and therefore can offer no profit-sharing for cars
delivered during August, September and October, 1915.
