Paris, June 19 The German feel-1
Ins toward the peace treaty appears
to be taking a more favorable trend,
although the peace delegation 1 rep-1
resented as decidedly opposed to tbe
acceptance of the terms.
Tbe latest dispatches reflect a dlf
f Brent viewpoint of tbe majority so
cialists, tbe dominant 'political force
in the German republic, who are re
ported to be more favorably inclined
than at first, and the clerlcalsand
democrats of the left wing are swing
ing in the same direction.
Berlin people are roiorted to be
resigned to the future, wishing only
to aee the treaty signed. Meantime,
exciting rumors are printed in Lon
don newaiapers, to the effect that
the British fleet is ready to sail Into
German 'waters on short notice and
that British derigibles are already
near the German coast, If not over
the British deriglble K it to Amer

Germany decides what she intends
to 'do regarding the 'peace terms.
Should Germany refuse to sign, ac
cording to one officer, the flight will
be eastward Instead of westward.

age for the season In Oregon last
week, although some complaint was
received of the scarcity of labor, ac
cording to the weekly summary of

The week was characterised by
unusually cool weather for the sec
ond decade of June, particularly In
northeastern counties where killing
frosts were experienced that check
ed the growth of vegetation and
caused considerable Injury to staple
crops . which were Just recovering
'from the effect of previous freezing
weather. Beneficial showers occur
red, but they were mostly confined
to coast counties and he W.Mamette
valley: elsewhere in non-Irrigated
districts rain Is badly needed.' The
sunshine was generally adequate but
low temperature retarded vegetation.
