Taking of evidence was begun in the
circuit court here today in the case
brought by James Sykes to recover
damages In the sum of $5000 from
Bert Macy. city recorder: Elmer Man

The case Involves the alleged ac
tion of the defendants toward Sykes
In a parade In which the employes of
the Spauldlng Logging company par
ticipated, when false news of the
signing of the armistice last Novem
ber was circulated, prematurely by
the United Press. Remarks said to
have been made by Sykes that he
would not take part in the parade
Inspired the defendants to assist in
forcing Sykes to march in the parade
nd afterwards to kiss the American j
Sykes complains that this action
was entirely uncalled lor ana was
accomplished by undue rough han
dling of himself by the defendants
and Intimidation by a mob which the
plaintiff claims threatened among
other things to throw him into the
Sykes charges that because of the
Indignities heaped upon him his
health was greatly impaired. There
are many witnesses to do examinea

LONDON. Oct. 4. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) There was at least a
slight rift In the strike storm clouds
tonight. The country today had rec
onciled Itself to the belief that there
was an Irreconcilable break between
the government and the unions in con
sequence of the absolute failure of
yesterday's conference between the
cabinet and the trade-union concilia
tlon 'committee in an effort to reach
a basis whereby negotiations with the
railway workers could be reopened.
Two unheralded events tonight gave
rise to a more optimistic feeling In
government and labor circles regard
ing the possibilities of a settlement.
Briefly, the conciliation committee
again unexpectedly visited Downing
street, -and, after a conference with
Andrew Bonar Law. repaired imme
diately to the executive of the Na
tional Union of Railwayman.
I'oloa Men to See Premsyr. -
At a late hour it was announced
that James H. Thomas, secretary of
the union, and railway delegates
would see Premier Lloyd George to
morrow, after having absented them
selves from the mediation councils
for several days. '
The visit of the conciliation com
mittee to Downing street had - not
teen looked for. The delegates were
closeted with Bonar Law for more
than an hour, at the end of which time
It was announced that the interview
had been adjourned until tomorrow.
The nature of the conference was
not divulged, but the newspapermen
waiting outside the premier's resi
dence noted that the members of the
committee seemed more cheerful when
they left. Apparently progress was
made by Bonar Law and tha commit
tee, as the visit of the railway dele
gates tomorrow would seem to be de
pendent upon some new angle which
has arisen.
Progress Reperted to Vnlon.
After the meeting between the rail
waymen'B executive and the concilia
tion committee. Arthur Henderson ad
mitted to the reporters that the com
mittee had come from Downing street
to report progress to the union.
Pending the outcome of-Tuesday's
meeting of all trade unions In Great
Britain, the executive committee of
the vehicle workers' federation will
not call a strike of bus, tram and
taxi drivers.
In an article contributed to the
Daily News today refuting an accusa
tion that he Is animated by personal
ambitions. James Henry Thomas, sec
retary of the railway men's union, de
clares that he thrice declined offers
to become a member of the British
cabinet. ...
Mr. Thomas warns the country that
If other trades unions join the strike
it may result in a class struggle,
which not all my counsels or moder
ating influence- may avail to save the
country from a violent and bloody

the war, as she had previously announced.
The inquest also developed finally
that the case was a suicide. The In
quest not only caused a postponement
in the burial of Miss Sandldge, who
was a member of a good family Jiere,
but it also resulted in the death cer

Homesteaders Leave Montana After
' Failure of Crops.
AI.RANT. Or.. Oct. 4. (Special.)
Three dry season! in succession, with
resultant crop failures, has caused a
large number of Linn county people
who took up homesteads in north
eastern Montana a few years ago, to
return to Oregon. Several families
have returned to Albany in the past
three months and have obtained new
locations In this vicinity.
Similar crop conditions in parts of
North Dakota the last few years are
causing heavy immigration to the
Willamette valley. Several North
Dakota families located recently in
the vicinity of Scio, where they
bought farms, and. are well pleased
