,!o Enthusiasm Shown When
Government Triumphs.
iftlililari&is .Discredited and Citizens
Are Weary of Revelations as
to Responsibility for War.
"f Copy right, by the New York World. Pub
lished by arrangement.)
BERLIN, Aug. 2. (Special cable.) It
Is significant of Germany's low morale
that not the slightest popular inter
est has been aroused by the adoption
of the new compromise constitution.
This, although the government tried to
"keep up appearances by ordering that
flags be flung out everywhere- in Wei
mar, that the bands play patriotic airs
and that fitting ceremonies bo held to
celebrate this important event In Ger
inan history.
There is no day now without its rev
elation as to who should bear the blame
for beginning the war. These revela
tions are beginning to make people
weary, for most Germans now regard
them as purely manufactured material
tor the elections to the new reichstag.
MiUtarlKt Are Discredited.
Still the revelations have served a
Useful purpose in further discrediting
the militarists and nationalists in the
eyes of the masses. The old guard is
probably down and out for a long time,
while the young republic is correspond
ingly consolidated and strengthened.
These revelations have paved the way
for the expected re-entry into power of
ihe disgruntled democrats and have
pi ven the government a sound, big ma
jority with which they can tackle the
great problems of reconstruction that
confront them.
Meantime almost every German busi
ness man one meets hopes, solicits or
begs for help from America. Alarm
ists predict freely that Germany will
go to fmash and drag all Europe to
ruin with it unless financial and eco
nomic aid comes quickly. Your corre
spondent finds the captains of indus
try and leaders of finance morbidly
pessimistic as to the immediate future.
They argue that only America can save
Germany from catastrophe, although
they indulge in little real hope that she
twill come to their aid.
Trade Resumption Slow.
Many Germans who have harbored
he delusion that America has been
rather a platonic eflemy must have dis
covered that America took the war
seriously after they had digested A.
Mitchell Palmer's report, which has
left a bitter taste in the mouth of the
German business world. This pessi
mism is further aggravated by the im
mediate invasion of Germany by crowds
of American business men with cash
and credits for Germany's benefit. The
painfully slow resumption of the old
business relation with America is one
of the most alarming features of the
situation to the German business world.
Oenerals and Statesmen Agree That
Army and People Reach Limit
i and Insist on Peace.
BKRLIX, July 31. (By the Associat
ed Press.) The ' former German em
peror's statement on October 27, 1918,
that he had reached an unalterable de
termination to sue for a separate peace
within 24 hours and to demand an im
mediate armistice is one of the many
xevi-lations of German war diplomacy
-ontained in the "White Book," pub
lished at Weimar today.
The former emperor's decision to eeek
peace immediately, according to docu
ments in the "White Book," he consid
ered necessary because he believed the
people both unable and unwilling' to
continue the war. The former German
3-uler's conscience was said to forbid
Jiim to permit further bloodshed.
More than a month earlier, in Sep
tember, General Ludendorff heard that
Bulgaria had offered to sign a sepa
j-ate peace. In the official discussion
tf a direct appeal to the United States
jt was agreed that Washington should
be designated as the center of peace
negotiations as a matter of politeness.
Austria was consulted by telephone re
garding the proposed appeal.
On October 1 General Greener report
ed that General Ludendorff had de
clared that delay would be fatal, that
the formation of a now government
should not be awaited, and that a break
in the military line was possible at any
minute, and that then any peace offer
obtained would be unfavorable. General
Groener said it was his impression that
General Ludendorff had los-t his nerve

Coroner Will Hold Inquest Over Late
Road Supervisor, Missing
Since July 2 3.
EUGENE. Or., Aug. 2. (Special.)
The body of Charles L. Taylor, road su
pervisor of the McKenzie bridge dis
trict, -who had been missing? since July
23, was found by Harry G. Hayes,
hunter and guide of McKenzie bridge,
about 2 miles from the spot where
Taylor's hunting companion, Clark, says
they separated that day. Owing to
poor telephone service, details of the
finding: of the body are lacking, but a
bullet hole in the body indicated that
Talyor had died either from an acci
dental shot from his own rifle or had
been shot by someone else.
Sheriff Stickles, who started today on
an outing at McKenzie bridge, will
make a thorough investigation of Mr.
Taylor's death. District Attorney Ray
had been at the scene for two or three
days investigating the disappearance.
Coroner Branstetter left tonight for
McKenzie bridge to hold the inquest. It
was expected that the body would be
taken to McKenzie bridge from the
place where it was found, on Scott's
mountain, 26 or 30 miles distant.
Taylor and Clark left McKenzie
bridge a wek ago Wednesday for a bear
hunt. Clark returned two days later,
stating that he was unable to find Tay
lor after they had separated for the
hunt. Clark says he waited at the ap
pointed meeting place for several hours
before starting for home.

John V. Kastc Begins Injunction
Suit to Prevent Collection on
Commissioners' Debts.
Xeglect of the Standard Oil company
and the Associated Oil company to call
for warrants totaling $331.50 awaiting
them all day yesterday at the office of
County Clerk Beveridge will mean a
long delay for them in the collection
of bills for gasoline used in the private
automobiles of Commissioners Holman
and Hoyt and the county machine
driven by Commissioner Muck. Failure
of the Portland garage to get a war
rant for 60 cents due on the purchase
of two gallons of oil for the auto of
Commissioner Holman added this con
cern to the waiting list. I
Two minute hpfnro S o'clock- fls '
deputies were preparing to close up the
office of the county clerk for the day,
John W. Kaste. local attorney, in the
role of indignant taxpayer, filed in
junction proceedings seeking to pre
vent the county clerk from .delivering
the warrants prepared to the creditors
and County Treasurer Lewis from pay
ing any which might have been deliv
ered, on the grounds that such ex
penditures from county" funds were un
warranted. Validity Ik Challenged.
Deputy County Clerk Bush accepted
service for Mr. Beveridge and before
the office opens Monday morning Mr.
Kaste will have had some circuit
Judge sign a preliminary restraining
Mr. Kaste does not base his action
upon the alleged illegality of the order
of the commissioners for the payment
of the bills after their rejection by the
county auditor, but rather on the al
leged invalidity of the accounts as
legitimate county expenses. The gaso
line or oil, he points out, has not been
used and was not to be used by the
commissioners solely for the trans
action of official business but also in
private business and "in pursuit of
their happiness in operating their own
private automobiles."
When seen last night Mr. Kaste said:
"I brought this suit as a private
citizen and taxpayer in my individual
capacity and upon my own responsi
bility. A public office Is a public trust
and not a private snap, and whenever
public officials use public office for
their own private gain or use. It is
time for some one to call a halt.
Other Salts Contemplated.
"I propose to sever and to plug up
some of the underground pipe lines
that have been draining the public
treasury of this county and state.
From now on I shall act as -the public
watch-dog of the public monies and
no one, official or layman, shall drain
the treasuries without authority of law.
"I shall next week institute suit
against the commissioners to stop
draining the Interstate bridge fund.
Once a month the commissioners meet
and audit the monthly payroll, and for
this they extract $50 per month each
out of this fund. No one can enjoy
two lucrative offices in the state at
one -ajid the same time, and this un
lawf uPToractlce must stop.
"I shall furthermore file suit next
week against the school directors and
the school board to compel a restitution
of all monies drained out of the public
school fund.
"I refer especially to the $620 ex,
tracted by Director Thomas as expenses
incurred in his late .pleasure trip east
to imbibe knowledge, experience and
other things. The $10,000 expended in
boosting and in attempting to put over
the late proposed bond issue must be

Military Men Being Absorbed Into
Commercial Lite With Ease
In This City.
Portland stands In a class by itself
as a city which has absorbed discharged
service men into its commercial and in
dustrial world, without the least diffi
culty. In addition, Portland has a rec
ord of having accomplished this task
with a splendid co-ordinated body, less
the friction and overlapping of effort
which has marked similar effort in
other large cities.
Such in the opinion of Byron P. Spry,
working under Colonel Arthur Woods,
who is charged with the duty of han
dling the gigantic task of bringing
about the absorption of all discharged
military men into the industrial and
commercial activities of the country.
Mr. Spry spent but one day in Port;

nothing that rhe government could do
to enhance the work performed by
Captain James O. Convill and his asso
ciates in the handling of the employ
ment bureau for discharged service
men, left for Seattle.

Wtiy Women Grow Old
Greater Percentage of Anaemia Lack of Iron in the Blood Among; Women Makes
Them Lose Much of Their Youth, Beauty and Former Attractiveness, and Become
Fretful, Nervous and Run-Down
What Women Need Is Not Cosmetics or Stimulating
Drugs But Plenty of Pure Red Blood, Rich in Iron
Physician Explains How Organic Iron N'uxated Iron, Enriches The
Blood, Strengthens The Nerves Builds Up Physical Power and Often
Makes Weak, Pale, Careworn Women Look and Feel Years Younger.
Look for the woman who appears younger than a man of the
the same" age and you will find the exception to that vast majority
upon whom anaemia lack of iron in the blood has fastened its
grip and is gradually sapping the health, vitality and beauty which
every woman so longs to retain. In most cases men safeguard their
health better than women by eating coarser foods, . being more
outrof-doors and leading more active lives, thereby keeping
their blood richer in iron and their bodies in better
physical condition. The very moment a woman allows
herself to become weak, nervous and run-down she is
placing a drain upon her whole system which overtaxes
the power of the blood to renew wasted tissue and
keep active the natural life forces of the body. There
are thousands of women who are aging and -breaking
down at a time when they should be enjoying that
perfect bodily health which comes from plenty of
iron in the blood, simply because they are hot aVrake
to their condition. For want of iron a woman may
look and feel haggard and all run
down while at 50 or 60 with good
health and plenty of iron ,in her
blood she may still be "young- in
feeling and so full of life and
attractiveness as to defy de
tection of her real age. But '
a woman cannot always have
beautiful rosy cheeks or an
abundance of strength and
