Paving operations on the north side
of Pendleton probably w ll bo resumed
on Monday, City ICmrlneer V Ii.
Hnyvs said today, l'red let Ions of fair
wealher led to the belief that the
ground would be sufficiently driod out
oy then to allow resumption of onera-
tions after a two week shutdown due
to snow and rain. There are about
two and a half blocks of Mark street
yet toe paved. Including a fill at the
oast end, where It Joins Bush street.
The WarreYi Construction Co. wants to
pavo over this fill when the other
blocks on the north side are complet
ed and guarantees that It will do a
permanent Job, Mr, Hayes says. Un
less this can be' done, the final esti
mates on the five blocks along Mark
street would have to be held up scv
eral mouths and the company could
not be paid for about 120,000 worth of
work. One block on Madison street,
anotlier on Lincoln, one on Logan and
two on Washington street are expected
to be ready for paving operations
BY R. H. SHEFFIELD
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
BRUSSELS, Dec. 31. (U. P.) "1
tried three times to leave the country
to Join up," said a Belgian workman
to me. "On the last occasion i came
so near being electrocuted on the live
wire that I gave up any further at
tempts. 1 w-as out of work for 18
months; my wife and children were
famished. Nearly all in my little
home had been sold; rent was in heavy
nrrear. The Germans offered me reg
ular work on munitions In Germany,
and an anowance and protection ioi
my wife and family. I took their of
fer, for the sake of my dear ones. To
day the village shuns me as a traitor!"
That Is one case in, say, a hundred.
The bulk of the Belgian traitors who
helped the Germans during the. occu
pation did so either from pure stupid
ity or from political motives. Many
thought Belgium wa scheduled as a
permanent German province. Some
became pro-German In order to be free
from German interference with their
daily lite and occupants. Horse and
cattle dealers, farmers, and some Iron
founders were especially open to Prus
sian blandishments, mainly on account
of their war utility.
Many Mee from County..
Ever since the armistice the Belgian
ennrts have been busy trying those
who comforted the enemy. Many ot
the accused, especially those who are
churned with delivering patriotic Bel
gians to the Germans, with forcing
Belr.ian workmen to take employment
under the Germans, and with acts ot
pure sedition against the Belgian gov
ernment, have fled the country, never
to return. Not a few of these. In their
absence and in view'of the gravity of
their crimes, have been sentenced to
dnath. In some of the worst cases
among these, there is a mock execu
tion of the guilty ones In tho public
market places of the Belgian cities
with guillotine, sheriff, gendarmes
and all the paraphernalia of the last
act of the criminal's career. Many
more are serving long terms of Impris
onment. . , .
Voluntary help to the Germans In
their war enterprises of any nature is
ei.ough to secure a conviction. High
and low, rich and poor, have had to go
"throUKh the hoop.'" Complaint is
.made that Justice is sibw-, that some of
the upper crust ge' away scot free,
while the starving laborer goes to jail.
One or two ot the accused openly
avow that they prefer German rule to
1-elgian. The fact is that the lists of
every court In tho country contain
hundreds ot cases of treachery yet to
IMbllo Opinion Flays Many.
Aside from those traitors who have
to meet their Judges in the courts of
law, there is a class of anti-patrlots
who are today oeing punisnea oy pub
He opinion. These are small trades
men and others who, by sailing close
to tho wind, have succeeded in keep
ing beyond the pale of the law, and
yet whose record is known to their
nelvhbors as having been distinctly
pro-German during the war.
Seconding the efforts of the consti
tuted authorities, a federation of
nearly a hundred local patriotic so
cieties throughout the country is also
busily engaged in ferreting out and In
vestigating cases of treachery and
trading with the enemy, which private
research can "work" more effectively
than government detectives. This fed
eration, called "Justice," collects and i
collates evidence of a preliminary
character, and places it before the
courts as a basis for prosecution.
