Washington, Aug. 25. The peace
treaty promises to hold the spot
light in congress again this week
with a possibility that before the
week Is over the report of the for
eign relations committee may bring
the question of ratification into the
open senate.
Although Chairman Idge declines
to make any prediction as to when
the committee will report, democrat
ic members said today that they bad
an understanding with the requbli
cans that action would be taken this
week if possible.
The committee today resumed its
hearings but most ot the week Is
expected to be devoted to discussion
of amendments to the treaty. De
bate on the treaty is also to con
tinue In the senate.
The Franco-American treaty will
come before the senate judiciary
committee in connection with con'
slderatioD ot a. sub-committee report
holding the treaty to be no violation
of the' United States constitution.
'High cost of living questions will
continue to the fore In both branches
of eongress. The senate agricultural
committee Is expected to report early
in the week an amendment to put
"teeth" in the Iver food control
act.
The house, having carried out
one of President Wilson's recommen
dations for reducing living costs,
will consider another this week in
the Hutchinson bill to regulate cold
storage of foodstuffs.
Othie Sackett, known nationally as
"Young KloT McCoy." who will speak
In the M. E. church tomorrow night.
Is perhaps one of the best known
fighter speakers of today. At one
time "Kid .McCoy" was a ring artist
ot national falne and for a time pos
sessed the title of lightweight cham
pion boxer, but he was converted
from the fighters' ring by Billy Sun
day, and since that time has appear
ed In every state of the union, mak
ing just as much of a record as a
preacher as he did as a Iboxer. He
has something of the famous Sunday
style and much- of the Sunday force-
fulness. He puts emphasis, vim
and snap into bis lectures, and pre
sents his subjects in an entirely new
and original 'way.
At Eugene recently, McCoy spoke
to packed houses, and the Guard
says his talk was- forceful, etralght
from the shoulder, and valuable to
every person. He advises young
men to take up boxing as a means
ot physical training, but urges them
to keep away from the ringside.

BUmi of I'nknowo Origin Destroys
t'pjMT Deck of Wooden
Penstock
Early Sunday morning tire of un
known origin destroyed the deck and
upper structure of the wood pen
stock at the Golden Drift dam. The
Lflre was discovered at about 3 o'clock
In the morning by Mrs. Cargili,
whose husband Is employed by the
Irrigation and Power company as
caretaker, and Mr. Cargill at once
spread the alarm, but there was lit
tle that could be done. The tire, how
ever, as . It consumed the upper
structure, released the gates which
fell and closed the penstocks, caus
ing the water to rise and flow over
the spillway, which saved that part
vt the structure. -
Workmen have been busy for sev
eral' weeks putting in concrete work
In place of the wood structure. This
work will continue, the (ire simply
doing away with the necessity of
tearing out the wooden parts.

Berlin. July 22. (Correspon

German deficit in food, the difference-between
the amount produced
in "Germany and Germany's normal
needs, amounts to 3,600.000 tons of
wheal, one- million tons of meat and
one million tons of fats, says the
Imperial Food Ministry.
Immediate payment for these nec
essary foodstuffs' with inland resour

credits is only passible it Germany

level- The main crater is nearly
eight miles in circumference and
600 feet deep, encloeclng an area of
2,650 acres, a solidified sea of lava
which take most fantastic shapes.
In the center ot this vast sink in the

great pit over 1,000 feet In diameter
where churns and boils a sea of
liquid rock, with waves and billows

Near the crater of Kllaua is a
sandy plain, covered with huge
boulders vomited up in the eruption
of 1790. It was here that the army
