PARIS, July 19. (Special Cable.)
The tendency to drive, which is never far
away from the councils of the little five,
has set in again with, a vengeance at
the Quai d'Orsay. It was believed by
the American delegation that the Aus
trian treaty would ue finished today,
but that document still hangs fire, and
it certainly will no,t reach Dr. Renner,
the Austrian plenipotentiary, before
next week.
Neither the statesmen nor the mili
tary men can make upr their minds what
to do regarding bolshevik Hungary.
Russia is held up until the "views of
President Wilson can be flashed from
"W asnington. Proposed- plans will be
blocked if he disapproves, for no mat
ter how much the British and French
may approve of' a given policy, there
can be no :act'ion except" as' an inter
allied measure. .
As "for Turkey' and the complex
mosaic in Asia Minor, several " months
are likely , to pass' before ' even- the
groundwork for settlement can be-laid.
Vith the best wijl in the world the
allies must keep Turkey in suspense
until the position of the United States
nhaU be defined it respect to the query
w-hether the Ajnerican government will
consent to administer Armenia. Con
stantinople or other parts of the ex
Ottoman empire, under the league of
nations, or until the American, senate
.shall reject the treaty. Even ratifica
tion of the. treaty by the senate would
not imply acceptance of the mandatory
over Turkish provinces. .As an Amer
ican diplomat put it today, Turkey may
still be awaiting her fate when
Thankseriving conies around again.
The little five got a rude jolt today
when the matter of repatriating Ger
many's Russian prisoners of war was
laid before them. Since the armistice
these helpless soldiers have been fed
and clothed at the expense of the
llies. As there are 240.000 of them,
the expense is heavy and cannot be
borne indefinitely.. It is supposed the
jjajorfty of them have bolshevik lean
ings and so it would be unwise to ship
them back into Russia to reinforce
TrotzKy's rad army.
Pavins Operations Result In Cutting
Down of Touring.
HOOD RIVER, Or., July 19. (Spe
cial.) Recent announcements of pav
ing work on the Columbia -iver high
way between here and Cascade Locks,
according to local garage men. have
tended to cut traffic over the route to
less than half of that of a few weeks
ago. Motorists arrive here from the
east expecting to have to ship by boat
to Cascade Lrwks or to cross the Co
lumbia and tke the North Bank road
to the west. The garage men are
eager to get definite information as to
when the road will be blocked, if at
all, and when the contractors expect to
complete the 22 miles of paving.
Rumors have been current that the
paving between Cascade Locks and this
city will be completed before next
The best information obtainable fro
headquaretrs of the local engineers of
the state highway commission and
offices of contractors is that it will be
two or three weeks before construction
work will interfere materially with
traffic. The cutting of a new grade
between here and the top of Ruthton
hill may at any time temporarily block
traffic over the route. No inconven
iences, however, will result, for watch
men will at once be stationed at inter
sections to divert traffic through the
Belmont and Krankton districts.
Damage Done in Sixteen Hours Esti
mated at $120,000. .
ANCHORAGE. Alaska. June 11. (By
Mail.) Forest fires raging for 16 hours
along the Turnagain Arm did an esti
mated damage of $120,000 to material
accumulated by the Alaskan Engineer
ing commission for use in construction
of snowsheds on the government rail
road line to Seward. Twenty-eight
men mastered the fires after a hard
. The losses of the commission in
eluded over 1.000,000 feet of piling and
iimoer; nuge quantities of lumber; pil
me tr use in constructing the new
JocK at Anchorage: thousands of rail
roaa ties, ana approximately 250 cords
of fuel wood. The fire swept a path
from 70 feet to one mile in width and
over a distance of two miles, leaving
iv-pouiia sieei rails twisted and bent.
jv caoin and an old sawmill were de

destruction quickly.

Soldier Dead in His Division Given
Honorable Burial Regardless of j
Shellfire or Teutons-
NEW YORK, July 19. Major Thomas
J. Dickson, senior combat chaplain on,
the American front in the great world i
war, arrived this weex on the United 1
States steamer Mount Vernon. He went
of the trth field artillery the regiment
that fired the. first shot. He wears all
the battle etars of the immortal 1st
division. He also served with nine
other divisions.
Major Dickson lost three orderlies at
the front. He had his horses shot five
different times and was twice ordered
off the battle field on account of the
great danger to which he was volun
tarily exposfng himself. Three times
he was officially offered relief from the
front and declined it. He remained at
the front until the last shot was fired
and crossed the Rhine with the first
American troops. He ran a machine
gun during the battle of Verdun.
Major Dickson was cited in general
orders-' for distinguished conduct in ex
posing himself to heavy shell fire in
burying the dead during battle. He
disregarded his personal safety and in
sisted on rendering his dead every
honor possible. (
Chaplain Dickson conducted almost
daily funerals for months. The French
would bring great masses of flowers
and render every honor possible. One
private had the same military honors
as a colonel and the dead usually placed
to rest under a canopy of flowers. Amer
ican soldiers were deeply moved by the
sympathetic regard of the French sol
diers and civilians. They were usually
present in great numbers and almost
daily expressed their gratitude and
sympathy in music, songs and flowers.
Major Dickson has been assigned to
the 1st field artillery at Fort Sill. Okla

HOOD RIVER. Or, July 19. (Spe
cial.) Although the protest of business
men is practically unanimous against

LONDON". July 19. Land, sea and air
forces' of the British . empire and her
allies, were represented today in the
triumphant victory parade to mark the
return of peace.
Several million persons watched the
gorgeous spectacle. When the British
contingents came In sight the applause
became a great roar, above which could
be heard at times the shrill voices of
women. The patriotic fervor had Its
climax In the great demonstration
along Pall, Mall and about the pavilion
before Buckingham palace, where King
George, Queen Mary, Premier Lloyd
George, the cabinet ministers, the
American ambassador. John W. Davis,
and other diplomats reviewed the pa
rade. Jnbllee Greatest Blaee 1R07.
General Pershing, leading the Amer
ican forces, was given a hearty recep
tion. So also was marshal Foch and
the French and the other allied lead
ers and their contingents.
London has not witnessed such a cel
ebration since the late Queen Vic
toria's diamond jubilee In 1897. Buck
ingham palace was decorated on its
exterior for the first time in its his
tory. Huge flags of the allies floated
from the upper windows and a wide
streamer of purple and gold stretched
across the facade. The royal pavilion,
erected close to the Victoria memorial
monument, added color to the atrlklng
King George, from his seat on the
scarlet dais, had a clear view through
a colonnade of ornate white pylons

was 12:30 when they came marching
with springy step and smart precision.
As the Americans' approached the stand
King George and all others, including
Queen Mary, the aged queen mother.
Alexandria, and Princess Mary, arose.
The king, in the uniform of a field
marshal, kept his hand to his visor In
rigid salute until General Pershing, sit
ting on his horse like a cavalryman, had
passed. The American troops won com
pliments on their formation, 'i ne bayo
nets of many were decorted with flow
ers and Union Jacks.
General Pershing dismounted ISO
yards beyond the king's stand and re
turned to It. where he was greeiea oy

the remainder of the review...
Peace was celebrated today, not only
In London, but In every part of the
vast dominions over which floats the
ITn ion Jack. '
Everywhere the returned heroes oi
the war were honored. Those who did
not return from the battlefields, how
ever, were not forgotten. In every
