A PATRIOTIC MEETING ,
A meeting is to be held Sunday
afternoon, at three o'clock, at 'the
open house, at whloh expression will
be given to the patriotic spirit ot the
community. Before another week
passes, the United States may he at
war with one ot the greatest ot the
European powers. . The honor and
the rights and the dignity of Am
erica have been disrespected, and the
nation must stand solidly behind its
president in dealing with the crisis
All orer ihe country' these meeting
are being held, and the national
Toice gives expression to the unity
that will meet the call tor action if
the call shall come.
Sunday afternoon the people ; ot
. Grants Pass will gather to hear a
brief discussion ot the subject, and
national airs will be sung. A com
mittee of cltliens Is now working out
the program, a preliminary meeting
attended by members of the Chamber
-of Commerce and from the church or
ganizations, having been held Wed
nesday evening. The G. A. R. and
yr. R. C. will participate, and the
girl scouts will usher the citizens to
their seats.
There should be such an outburst
ot patriotic enthusiasm as Grants
Pass has never before experienced.
ENCOURAGING INDUSTRY
There is a chance for the boys
and girls of Josephine county to make
a pocket full of money this summer
In the offer of the Utah-Idaho Sugar
company. Any good active youngster
can grow an acre ot sugar beets by
his own labor, and perhaps draw
down one of the prizes offered. And
the prize is not the only inducement
to the making of the offer. An acre
In the Rogue valley last year pro
duced 28 tons of beets. That would
put 196 in the bank for the boy
who does all the work himself. But
suppose he falls short of the record,
and only gets half as much tonnage,
he has still made a pretty good re
turn for the effort required. Then,
too, he might by the use of fertiliser
and water and diligence, produce a
crop such as Mr. Campiliell told us
had been produced In Nebraska by
the highest type of culture, or 41
tons per acre. ' And the Rogue val
ley can do it if any country tan.
crop of 41 tons mean $287 next Oc
tober. That of Itself would be some
prise. Two seres ot sugar beets,
properly cultivated upon good soil.
will put a boy through college.
Governor Wlthycombe announces
that a special session of the state
legislature will be called If war Is
declared. The principal reason for
the step is to provide funds by state
appropriation for dependents left be
hind by the soldiers, and to take
whatever steps the legislature can
toward the defense of the state.

Ql'ALlTY FIRST
London, Mar. 29. German ..Im
perial Chancellor von Bethmann-
Hollweg may strive to stave off a
growing sentiment for democratising
of Germany today Iby a new peace
proffer. At the very least he is ex
pected to announce sweeping reforms
in Germany's governmental struc
ture, permitting more active par
ticipation by the people, according
to rumors here. 1
Dispatches today indicated the
most intense interest In Berlin in the
speech which the chancellor was
scheduled to deliver to the relehstag
this afternoon.
For the first time German social
ists have united In formidable de
mands which the government ap
parently realties have the backing of
a large Dart of the people. These
demands are aimed at the very foun
dations of the present governmental
system and have .been accelerated
ctmiIt bv full realisation of the
overthrow of autocracy In Russia.
Herr Scheldmann. socialist, who
has heretofore supported the gov.
ernment's policy, was said to have
warned the chancellor that the dem
ocratizing of Germany must start at
once. Dispatches from Berlin even
hinted that the socialists are demand
ing Immediate institution of a con
stitutional, monarchy like England,
claiming that Germany Is the only
autocratic government now left alive
and In order to maintain the friend
ship In future years of the. rest of
the world's democracies, she must
change her system. ,
BRITISH BARK NEATH
Washington, Mar. 89. Between
the lines of what at first appeared
to (be a conflicting state department
cablegram, naval men today patched
out the story of how a German sub
marine torpedoed the British bark
Neath, took her captain hostage' and
then herself was captured by a Brit
Ish ship. A message from Consul
Frost at Queenstown said the cap
tain had been taken prisoner and
also advised later that he was landed
at Queenstown the following day.
What at first seemed to be a con-
tlicting statement, however, convinc
ed navy men that the English had
bagged the I' boat and freed -the
captain.
Frost's message reads:
"British bark Neath with auxiliary
steam power, 4,690 tons, bound
Mauritius to Havre, with sugar, tor
pedoed without warning 8:45 a. in.,
37th, 27 miles southeast of Eastnet.
Sank in seven minutes. No losses or
Injuries. Captain taken hostage jy
submarines. Weather fair. . Boats
picked ui by admiralty vessel three
miles off Baltimore, England, 8:30,
27th. All saved. Captain landed
Queenstown two today (March 28.)
"Two Americans Clarence Bloom,
boatswain, San Franclwco, and Peter
Webster, colored seamen, Pensacolu,
Fla."
