Regarding relations between Ger

said an indication of the Austrian feel-lna-
toward the oresent German recline
mtaht be gatnered from the fact that
during the recent demonstrations In
Vienna the Austrian Emperor was
never once attacked by speakers, but
that the German Emperor was openly
and repeatedly Insulted.
This was due. he said, to attacks of
the German Junkers on Austria. He
declared the junker press has been de
manding that "Germany should be freed
from Austria.
"Let us seek In honor. said the
pesker. "to save the world from new
bloodshed In the Spring;. Let us give up
Illusions on both sides. Remember that
the feeling among: our people Is most

WALLA WALLA, Wash, Jan. 26.
(Special.) Responsibility for the fire
which threatened the factory building
of Walla Walla College, the Adventist
institution at College Place, this morn
ing has not been placed by the authori
ties tonight, and there is some question
whether the blaxe was incendiary. Con
sidering the fact that within a month
there have been four other attempts to
fire the main building and all were
plainly incendiary, officers believe that
this latest attempt was also work of a
The blaxe had gained considerable
headway before it was discovered by
the night fireman about C o'clock. The
blaxe started over the pumps in the
factory building. The Interior of the
building was badly scorched before the
blaxe was extinguished by the volun
teer fire department -of the school.
The Walla Walla fire department
reached the scene within five minutes
after the alarm, was turned in. some
of the apparatus having been set apart
for just this use In case of need.
Since the recent attempt to fire the
main building, the college has had the
auditorium building carefully guarded,
and no attempts have been made for
several weeks. Authorities of the school
say they do not believe a student could
be responsible. Officers, however, be
lieve that the attempts In the past have
been so-called Inside jobs," because
persons responsible have shown great
lamtuarity with the building.
All the attempts have been made
when no life loss would have resulted,
early morning or evening being the
tlmea chosen. In the factory part of
tne buiiumg where the fire was started
this morning are located the lighting
plant, heating plant, laundry and pump
ing plant.
A delay In discovery would have
crippled the entire institution. Much of
the machinery was damaged, but not
so badly that it cannot be repaired.

Captain Simmons ssld the United

France to make any showing, "for our
enemy Is fortified by almost impreg

Disastrous Effects on Railroad
Transportation Seem Probable.
WASHINGTON. Jan. f S Just as rail

aged by rising temperatures over most
of the country, had begun today to dis
cuss removal of the general freight
embargo on three Eastern trunk lines.
reports reached them of new snow
storms, with their disastrous effects
on railroad transportation.
The Immediate result was the 'aban
donment of hope of removing the ex
isting embargo tomorrow or Monday
nd the intimation that it might be
necessary to extend It further.
After Chicago reports said from sev
en to 10 Inches of snow bad fallen and
was being driven over tracks and
trains by a high west wind, more snow
was forecast for most of tho eastward
country for tomorrow.
Coal was kept moving and neither
the fuel nor railroad administrations

serious commercial shortage than has
prevailed tor the past week.
The zone system of distributing coal
probably will not be put Into effect
for another week.
