train across tho country, advertising
Oregon, Washington, California and the
21915 exposition. - .
The Oregon will carry an important

gif the nation through the canal. Aboard
will be the president of the United
states, the ship will fly the, president's

command of the Oregon after 10 years
cf retirement, and other officers and
men of tho crew of 1K98.
Mr. (Jill, who Is making his head
quarters at the Hotel Portland during
Ills stay In Portland, has succeeded in
locating about 180 veterans of the Ore
gon, and thinks 100 more of the crew
of 1898 are living. He wants to hear
from all veterans with whom he has
not been in communication. He be-

Arkansas Lands Are
Being Reclaimed
Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 24. An engi
neerlng company of this city has start
ed work on a mammoth contract to
drain the sunken lands and swamps In
northeast Arkansas, which are sup
posed to have been caused by an earth
quake a century ago. The surplus wa
ter will be let into the St. Francis
and Tyronza rivers. , The territory to
be drained covers 300 square miles or
200,000 acres, which will require 00
miles of ditches, 40 to 50 feet wide and
10 to IS feet deep. The main ditch
will be 65 miles long. The entire work
will cost a total of $1,400,000. It is
expected to have the project completed
within two years.

Teuton - Invaders' Advances
in Belgium Made on Double
Shift Plan of Operating,
London, Oct. 24. The secret of the
tremendous German rush through Bel
gium and on to the outskirts of Paris
now appears to be explained. The
German army was organized as are
the workers in a factory or coal mine;
that is, they worked In two shifts.
Throughout the advance from Liege
half the army was sleeping while the
other half was attacking or advanc
ing, and by these tactics they kept
the allies constantly awake and wore
them out by sheer want of sleep.
The fall of Namur was almost en
tirely due to the two-shift tactics of
the German army. The bombardment
of that town, it will be remembered,
was continuous for three days from
Thursday, August 20, until 5 p. m. on
the following Sunday.
Attack X Continuous.
From the moment the attack was
opened It was continuous and over
whelming. Forts are said to have
been bombarded at the rate of 20
shells a minute for at least 70 hours,
and the members of the garrison who
were not killed or wounded were re
duced to physical wrecks by want of
It is obvious that the German at
tackers must have worked in two
shifts to have carried out such a
pressed, make up the steel for the big
guns. The flags will consist of col
ored wool, Oregon grown of course.

bombardment. Even if the gunners
were beyond the range of Belgian
fire and safe from attack, they could
not have kept it up for 70 consecutive
hours. In the garrison of Namur
sleep would have been impossible un
der such a terrific cannonade, and
want of sleep is a stronger engine of
war than even the German 11-inch
From Namur right down through
the northeastern part of France the
German advance was conducted on the
"two-shift" principle, which means
that twice a day, when the "shift'
that has just slept comes up to the
front to relieve the "shift" those time
for sleep has come.
Firing Iiine Beenf orced.
On these two occasions the firing
line is reenf orced to the full strength
of the army, and vast attacks can be
launched. These, It will be observed,
have been the tactics employed, for
the great German rushes have not
been continuous, although, the general
movement forward during that stage
of the war was.
Only , soldiers who have fought
through arduous campaigns can real
ize that sleep is a thing to which th
bravest soldiers must eventually suc
cumb. It is a struggle to beat off the
stealthy approach of sleep only for 24
hours; 70 -jours is longer than most
human beings can resist It, and by
that time it is so strong that it out
weighs all other considerations.
Use Motor Plows
For Trench Digging
Germans Save Cars Wltb Attachments
for Cutting Barbed Wire In Front of
Una of Advance.
London, Oct. 24. The Germans do
their trench cutting with motor plows.
says the automobile expert of th
Daily Chronicle in an article describing
types of motor vehicles now In use In
the war.
"W'here variety is concerned," he
says, "it must be conceded that the
Germans can claim the greatest degree
of forethought, for they have two
types of machine at least which are
not to be found elsewhere.
"Intrenchments, It need hardly be
said, play a leading pft in the cam
paign. The Germans -do a good deal
of their trench cutting by machinery.
Before the war broke out they pro
vided themselves with a number of me
chanlcal plows, driven by 200 horse
power petrol motors.
"It does not need much imagination
to realize that engines of that power
can scoop out trenches much more rap
idly than men with spades, and,
though it is improbable that the num
ber of these machines Is so large that
they are likely to be available at
moment's notice at every single point
at which intrenchment might become
desirable, it cannot be doubted that
the machines which have been con
structed have proved highly useful,
and for aught we know may actually
have been employed at the outset of
the present battle of Aisne.
"Inasmuch as wire is commonly
used for .obstructive purposes, it is
noteworthy that the cars which the
Germans use for field work are fitted
with curved steel rods on the forefront.
One of these has a cutting edge, and
whenever wire Is encountered it is
caught up by the plain rod and passed
on to the cutting edge, by which it is
automatically severed."
Memory Recovered;
Error Is Disclosed

Orders DMth FntJty to Any Soldier
Tiling on Enemy &ed Croc
Chiqago, Oct. 24. The Daily News
prints the following from its corre
t-pondent at Berlin:
The picture of the kaiser which on
obtains irom the German-American
newspapers a war lord proudly send
ing his people into battle, convinced
of his right to force German culture,
absolutism and militarism at the
point of the bayonet is quite differ
ent from the impression of the men
who come occasionally to Berlin from
general headquarters, where the kaiser
From what they say it seems that
the kaiser has not changed his chfarac
ter In the last two months. He still
is the profoundly sincere leader, im
petuously loyal to his DeoDle. Dromot
ed by a deep rooted conscience and an
extraordinary sensitive sympathy.
Extremely Xmpatnous.
It may be, of course, that the dis
tant world can see a face In this
many sided monarch, which those close
to him are unaware of. and that even
the kaiser Is unconscious of the Me-
pnistopneiean personification of him
self. But any one who knows anv
thing of the kaiser knows that he is
too impetuous to be willingly decep
tive. consequently when he wrote
mend in Berlin recently "No one can
appreciate with what a heavv heart
consented to let my people be involved
n this war it was a true statement
or his reelings.
The "War Lord" can onlv be seen
from a distance. I have heard two
anecdotes about the kaiser at general
neaaquaners wnich came from reliable
sources and which have not appeared
n tne merman press. One in about his
diet, which consists of a thick soup, a
piece or . sausage and a piece of bread

best food to be obtained. His ad
visers are impatient with him for en
dangering his health, but to their Im
portunities he replies:
it is what my soldiers are getting
on the battlefield. It is good enough
for me." i
One day he heard that his men at
the front were reduced to & piece of
bread and red wine. He cut his diet
Issues Drastic Orders.
The second story is the obverse of
the "German atrocities" which have
played a part in dispatches from the
allies. The kaiser has ordered that no
German artillery shall fire on the pro
vision wagons of th enemy and that
any German who fires on the Red
Cross flag even by accident shall re
ceive the death penalty.
'inese little stories better than nnv.
thing else strike the keynote of th
emperor-s me during these times.
War Only Begun, Is
London Times' View
Military Writer Says Great Britain Baa
1,200,000 Kan la Army How, and the
Humber Xs Past Growing.
London. Oct, 24. Replying to the
Frankfurter Zeitung's statement that
Great Britain was unable to raise more
than 600,000 troops, the Times' mili
tary correspondent says:
Ve have at present exactly double
that number, namely, 1,200,000 men.
and the number grows almost faster
than we can cope with. This Is only
the beginning.
"It is our way as well as that of
America, to begin to raise our armies
after war breaks out, and to go on
raising them until our ultimate ends
"With 1200,000 men at home, the
army in the field and the hundreds of
thousands forming in India, Canada,
Australia and elsewhere, 'are merely
the nucleus on which other armies will
eventually be built.
t"It Is only a question of time. It
stands to reason that an empire of
400,000,000 can never lack men. The
war for us has hardly begun.
"We have sent merely an advance
guard into France. In the spring the
remainder of the advance guard will
follow, and somewhere toward the end
of 1915 the main body will begin to
come within view.
"We are sorry for the allies that we
are even slower than Russia in making
our weight felt, but a year or, so hence,
when the allies need a rest, we shall be
Is a position to make good war.
"Nothing can arrest the steadily as
cending figures of our army. Their
cost Is of little account, since Ger
many will ultimately have to pay, In
territory as well as money.
"Imagine things at their worst. Im
agine the last Cossack on the Urals
and the last French doorkeeper evict
ed from Bordeaux. Then we would be
gin a maritime war against Germany,
and still be no worse off than when we
began war against Napoleon."
