JOSEPHINE COUNTY'S PART
The conscription law comes home
to all of us. Naturally men and
women the country over are asking
"what wUl It mean to me?"
Figuring on the first army as
S00.000 men, the different sections of
the nation will be called upon to fur
nish men at the ratio of 1,141 for
each congressional district. There
are approximately 300,000 people in
this district, based on the 1910 cen
sus which is the latest. Josephine
county had 9,567 people in 1910 ac
cording to that census' figures.
This means that in the raising of !
an army of half a million men, this
country would be called upon to fur
nish only 36 men. Not an appalling
number by any means.
Truly this Is a great country; one
able to put an army of over 5,000.-j
000 men Into the field without ser-
iously disturbing the routine of do -
mestic industry. Such sn army
could not be carried to European
battle fields In many years owing to
the lack of ships. It has been es
timated that it wonld take England
two years to return ber vast army
to British soil If peace were declar
ed today. It seems almost "beyond

There are a good many things

Beet growing admits of Intensive
agriculture; hence each acre is made

ris and the other survivors of the
second boatload were en route to a
British port today. t
George Wilson of the first survi
vors' party of eighteen arrived at
Liverpool today with a graphic story
of the disaster.
"The submarine fired her torpedo,
then submerged," he said. "lJUer,
she re-appeared and fired her guns
at us, completing the work of sink
ing of the Vacuum. Two of our boats
were damaged In lowering and sank,
drowning the occupants."
While consular reports todsy put
the number of gunners Included In
the sdditlonal list of survivors with
Captain Harris at four, the Vacuum
Oil company's advices put the num
ber at six.
Survivors who have reached Lon
don said It was about 10 o'clock Sat
urday morning when the submarine
was first sighted, very close to the
Vacuum. Hardly a minute elapsed
before the torpedo which the O boat

A THING OF IHE PAST
Petrograd, April 30, (Delayed).
Another cog wheel was torn out of
the old bureaucratic government ma
chine today, when the official gov
ernment news trust, the Agencle
Telegraphlque. wss shorn of Its mon
opolistic powers. For years this
agency, which enjoyed an unchal
lenged monopoly of government and
official news functioned as a power
ful arm of the old order.
A re-organization was started
which resulted today In the opening
up of all official and semi-official
news sources of the government to
the Cnlted Press on the same basis
as exists for the agencies allied with
the Agencle Telegraphlque.

To see an animal cirrus the magni
