CAPITOL BUILDINGS
GUARDED CLOSELY
Gates to White House Locked
and Department Doors Are
A Closed to Strangers.
PUBLIC MEN ARE DELAYED
President's Secret Service Escort
Doubled Precautions Are More .
Rigid Than at Any Time of
Spanish-American, War.
OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Feb. 10 Washington City has
taken on mors of a war-time aspect
eince the severance of diplomatic re
lations with' Germany than prevailed in
the National Capital at any time dur
ing the Spanish war. This is true from
the White House down through the
departments, and into the Capitol.
There is no undue or unusual military
display. It rather is in the precau
tionary measures taken to protect
public men and public buildings.
The White House grounds were closed
within a few hours after the President
announced to Congress that passports
liad been handed to Ambassador von
Bernstorff and Ambassador Gerard had
been recalled.
The public has been barred not only
from the White House and the White
House offices, but from the White
House grounds. The big gates out
front remain closed and locked, bar
ring all vehicles, and even the gates
at the pathways leading to the White
House remain barred and locked, so
that pedestrians also are kept at mora
than a safe distance from the Presi
dent's home and office.
A somewhat ludicrous picture Is pre
sented at the White House gates these
days, for on duty there, in addition to
the ever-present . detail of blue-coated
policemen, are the suffragist pickets,
with their yellow and purple banners.
Public Men Are Delayed.
So rigid Is the rule at the White
House that public men having appoint
ments with the President experience
preat difficulty in gaining access to
the White House grounds, and early
In the vigil Senator Simmons, of North
Carolina, chairman of the appropria
tions committee, was forced to pace
up and down in a biting wind for 15
minutes while he was being Identified,
and that notwithstanding he called at
the White House on the President's
Invitation.
At no time during the Spanish war
was the great State, War and Navy
Department building closed to the pub
lic; today it is barred to all save those
bearing passes, and each one of the
. several thousand employes has to carry
an identification card and pass In or
der to reach hi3 or her desk each
morning and during the lunch hour.
Here, again. Senators and Representa
tives are barred along with, the gen
eral public.
Newspaper correspondents having
flally business in this big building
have been forced to obtain passes.
Watchmen Are Increased.
The other Government departments
are less rigidly guarded thus far, al
though in practically every public
building in Washington many of the
entrances- have been closed, and the
number of watchmen on duty at the
open doors has been increased. This is
true at the Capitol building, as well
as at the departments, and in none of
these buildings can -a stranger bearing
a package of any kind gain admission.
He must first deposit his package with
the watchman.
When President Wilson appears In
public these days he is followed by
double the number of secret service
men who formerly accompanied him,
and unusual precautions are taken to
guard him against cranks. This move
was made by the sercret service, which
is entrusted with the task of protect
ing the President at any and all times.
By reason of these changed conditions
i. n...... to much more confined
now than before the break with Ger
many and is necessarily unable to en
Joy all the liberties that were safely
his in the days before the break.
SPECIALISTS ARE READY
COLLEGE TRAINED BIEN OFFER
SERVICES TO COVEItXMEJiT.
Intercollegiate Intelligence Bureau
Gathers at Washington t
; i Perfect Organisation.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 10. Enrollment
of college .trained technical specialists,
whose services might be valuable to
the Government in war times, was per
sonally approved today by Secretaries
Baker and Daniels, when the Intercol
legiate Intelligence Bureau, created for
that purpose, gathered here to perfect
its National organization.
Representatives of 50 or more edu
cational institutions, headed by Dean
William McClellan, of the University
of Pennsylvania, who conceived the
plan, called on both Secretaries, who
expressed their gratification at the
practical patriotism manifested by the
college men.
The organization will establish a cen
tral bureau in Washington in direct
touch with the War and Navy De
partments. Committees at each college
or university will enroll men of special
training and ascertain their willing
ness to enter the Government service
on call.
RESERVE PLAN IN FAVOR
SENATE COMMITTEE APPROVES
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS.
by the committee would chanare the
basis on which Federal reserve notes
would be Issued to Federal reserve
banks so that the practical effect would
be to enable a bank to increase its
power to issue such notes 40 per cent,
and at the same time greatly increase
the gold held by Federal reserve banks.
Governor Harding, of the Reserve
Board, appeared before the committee
and urged this proposal, declaring it
is desirable that every dollar possible
or goia oe impounded in the Federal
reserve banks to strengthen the sys
tern.
Other amendments approved author
ize the Reserve Board to permit any
member bank to accept foreign bills
oi excnange up to 100 per cent of its
capital and surplus, and permit re
serve banks to receive deposits from
nonmember banks for purposes of ex
cnange or collection.
Most of the Board's proposed amend
ments already have been approved by
the House banking committee, and
Chairman Glass said today be expected
to press mem in the House next week.
SI10TT BILL TO PASS
EXTENSION OF TIME TO COMPLETE
IRRIGATION PROJECT SURE.
Legislation Asked for by Oregon Desert
Land Board to Aid Reclamation
of Crook County Lands.
OREGONTAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Feb. 7. (Special.) Acting on
a favorable recommendation made by
the Secretary of the Interior, the House
public lands committee has favorably
reported Representative Sinnott's bill
extending for 10 years the time for
reclamation of lands, included in the
Oregon Cary acts lists 6 and 19. lying
in Crook County. These two lists em
brace in the aggregate 140,000 acreB,
of which 86,000 acres , are irrigable.
This legislation was asked for by the
Oregon Desert Land Board.
The lands affected, while embraced
in two lists, are included in a -single
irrigation project, and their complete
reclamation calls for the construction
of a diversion dam in the Deschutes
River, near Betid, the building of 436
miles of canals and a flume a mile
and a half long, which also is to
divert water from the Deschutes
River. About 61,000 acres under this
system have been patented and 40,000
acres have been filed upon. . To date
28,000 irrigable acres are occupied by
settlers, who number more than 1S00.
Anappralsal of the farms on the
project for 1916 shows J2.502.0G4 in
value, and a crop and stock valuation
of $785,000.
The Desert Land Board reported that
diligent effort had been made by the
state, through its contractors, to re
claim the lands, and points out that
more land has been offered to settlers
than has been taken. To have these
contracts canceled now because the
project has not been fully completed
would work great Injustice to the set
tlers on the project. -

by Senator Hitchcock, Democrat.
Senator Bryan, Democrat, for the

VIENNA SEES HOPE
IN DELAY OF BREAK
Sharpness Absent From News
paper Comment on Inter
national Situation.
AMERICANS WELL TREATED
Wireless Dispatch That Teutons and
Teutonic Interests Get Court
esy Creates Favorable
Impression.
VIENNA, via London, Feb. 10. Gov
ernment circles and the public gener
ally view the delayed action of Presi
dent Wilson regarding the relations be
tween Austria-Hungary and the United
States as a somewhat favorable omen
and wonder if no rupture is to occur.
The newspapers. In a majority of cases,
hold a similar view, with the result that
the tone of the editorials is losing all
its sharpness, tava in the case of a
few radical papers, of which the Relch-
spast. the most prominent Catholio
organ, is the chief instance.
All the other papers this morning
confined themselves to discussing the
attitude of the other neutrals toward
the President's act regarding Germany,
and expressing the hope that the
American Government would learn
therefrom that the central powers' case
was not so one-sided as the friends of
the entente would have the world believe.
Several papers, knowing the Govern
ment's attitude in matters affecting
President Wilson's actions, refrained
from committing themselves editorially
on that subject, taking up the necessity
or fuel and similar matters Instead.
The Associated Press learns that the
Austro-Hungarian government yester
day Instructed the military and other
public safety organizations that the
greatest possible courtesy should be
shown all American citizens in any
event and that ppssible complaints by
any American should receive prompt at
tention at the hands of all the authori
ties.
At the American embassy the opinion
was expressed this morning that the
case looked hopeful. At noon the
papers published, with apparent satis
faction, a wireless dispatch from New
Tork to the effect that the American
Government had not taken radical
measures against German and Austro
Hungarian shipping and subjects, re
ports of which were widespread here.
The dispatch in question which stated
that Washington had Instructed the
American officials to proceed with cau
tion and courtesy, made the best possi
ble, impression.
Emperor Charles has placed at the
disposal of the people of the distribu
tion of fuel his entire stable equipment
that the coal which was accumulated at
the depots may be distributed to the
needy. He also has issued orders to the
army to assist with, rolling stock and
men. His order brought to light the
fact that he is displeased with the in
competence of certain officials and now
keeps in contact with the food and fuel
problems.

Principal Change Asked by Federal
' Board Is to Permit Banks to In

WASHINGTON. Feb. 10. Several
amendments to the Federal reserve act
proposed by the Reserve Board have
been approved by the Senate banking
committee, and. will be reported to the
Senate probably early next week.
Committee members also are talking
over a suggestion that if war comes
all eligible banks would be compelled
to become members of the reserve sys
tem. National banks now are com
pelled to be members, but membership
is optional with other institutions, and
there are about 15,000 eligibles which
have never come in". The discussion
of this subject has not taken any def

a marked change in several avenues
in this section of the coast and all
the Government property is now under

The Arago lighthouse was the first
property to be safeguarded and all
visitors have been excluded from the

station at Charleston is also the scene
of stricter care in relation to visitors
and the order came soon after the
lighthouse was banned. Six marines

Department of Justice Declared to
Hate Evidence to Warrant Re
quest for Indictments.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 10. Federal in
vestigation of the newsprint paper'sit
uatlon has uncovered enough evidence,
it was made known today, to warrant
the Department of Justice asking in
dictments of paper manufacturers for
alleged anti-trust law violations. Al
ready, it was learned, a Federal grand
Jury in New T&ork Is taking testimony
to determine If there has been a crim
inal conspiracy in restraint of trade.
Bainbridge Colby and Mark Hyman
have been retained as special assist
ants to the Attorney-General to aid in
the inquiry.
The Federal Trade Commission.
which has furnished much of the infor
mation on which the Department of
Justice is taking action, announced to
day that Francis J. Heney, of Califor
nia, had been engaged as a special at
torney in the Commission's inquiry into
nign newsprint prices, and that under
his direction the Commission would
continue its investigation after a pre
liminary report is made to Congress
early next week. Additional data will
be supplied to the Department of Jus
tice as fast as it is obtained.
The report to Congress, which was
to have been made Monday, probably
will be delayed for some days because
of the illness of one of the Comrais
sioners. It will be in the nature of an
interim report, and will cover the ef
forts of the Commission to find a solU'
tion for an apparent newsprint short'
age and relief for publishers from al
most prohibitive prices that have ob
tained for about a year.
The Trade Commission. It la under
stood, will report it has found that in
creases in newsprint prices within. the
year are from four to 20 times the
advance in production costs. It will
say there never has been an actual
newsprint shortage, and that manufac
turers have helped create a panic among
publishers by intimating there was one,
Progress of the War.
THE harvest of the German subma
rine campaign from reports re
ceived Saturday increased the total loss
of tonnage by S2.3S1 tons. Four Brit
lsh and three Norwegian steamers are
the latest victims of the U-boat block
ade measures. The British tonnage
totaled 15.905 tons and the Norwegian
6476.
The British steamers lost were the
Mantola, Lulllngton, Beechtree and
Japanese Prince. The Norwegian
steamers sunk were the Solbakken
Ellavore and Havgard. The largest in
tonnage was the Mantola, which raeas
ured 6826 tons, and the smallest was
the Havgard of 1100 tons. '
It is understood in Washington that
the German government is forward
ing to the United States a proposal
that the two governments discuss
methods of averting war between them.
The method by which thi3 suggestion
is being communicated has not been
disclosed, but it is considered likely
that the Swiss government is acting as
the intermediary. A desire on the part
of the German government that peace
be maintained, notwithstanding the
rupture of diplomatic relations, is'said
to be clearly defined in the communfea
tion, but it is not understood to carry
any suggestion that Germany Intends
to modify her submarine warfare. The
United States, it is understood, is in
vited by Germany to suggest any steps
which it believes would prevent hos
tilities. The communication had not
been received, by the State Department
when it closed Saturday.
Washington's view was that the
United States might not desire to enter
upon such a discussion while vessels
were being sunk In violation pf inter
national law. .
The Swiss legation In Washington
has been Informed that Ambassador
Gerard, his staff and 50 American citi
zens would leave Berlin Saturday night

Most any dentist can pull a tooth and not hurt you.
It doesn't take much of a mechanic to drill out a small,

this : If you want a full upper or lower bridge, with only
two or three teeth left for attachments it takes a man
with experience in that particular branch of the profes
sion or you will be sadly disappointed in appearance of
it, in the wearing quality and in the most important fea
ture of it all the chewing service it should give you.

I have made it possible for the working man, the shop
