Bombardment of Tsing Tau Com
menced by Nipponese United

Tokio The Yamato in an extra ed
ition Monday says that the bombard
ment of Tsing. Tau , by the Japanese
fleet has commenced. This message
was passed by the censors of the navy
department. J , .
Washington, D. C. The Japanese
ambassador here announced that a
state of war existed between Japan
and Germany since noon Sunday (Jap
anese time) and that a declaration of
war was issued at 6 p. m, ,
' Japan's declaration of war has
reached Berlin, according to official
reports received in Washington.
Whether the declaration was sent by
cable or wireless was not indicated.
' Viscount Chinda, in making his an
nouncement, repeated assurances (re

Japan's actions would be confined to
the Far East.
' Aside from informal verba) ex
changes between Viscount Chinda and
Secretary' Bryan in Washington and
between United Slates .. Ambassador
Guthrie and the foreign office in To
kio, however, there is nothing of rec
ord so far to commit the Japanese to
this limited field of war.
The impression prevails here among
diplomats, however, that the state
ment of Chinda taken in connection
with the speech in the Japanese Diet
last week of Count Okuma, the Japan
ese premier, is quite sufficient to bind
the Japanese government to a strict
performance of Jits obligations in re
gard to the return of Kiau Chau to
China and of the limitiation of the
field of hostilities definitely set out in
the British statement
No mention was made by Ambassa
dor Chinda of the status Of the rail
roads in Shantung province directly or
indirectly controlled by the Germans.
It was said at the Japanese embassy
here that in all probability the Japan

seizure of the railroads running inland
to Tsinan, about 200 miles in length,
because this was German' in every, re
spect. It was not expected that any.

, Tokio The proclamation of the em
peror who declared war on Germany
has sent a thrill through the country.
Japan's entrance upon the fullfillment
of her obligations to her ally, Great
Britain, responds to the popular will
from one end of the land to the other.

' Son Sent to His Death.
Paris Colonel Folque, commander
of a division of artillery at the front,
recently needed a few men for a peril
ous mission and called for volunteers.
"Those who undertake this mission
will perhaps never come back," he
said, "and he who commands will prob
ably be one of the first sons of France
to die for his country in this war."
A young graduate of a polytechnic
school asked for the honor of leading.
It was the son of Colonel Folque. The
latter paled; but did not flinch. . His
son did not come back.
. Japan Not to Retain Port. -Kariiawaku,
Japan Saburo Shima
da, a member of the opposition in Par
liament, in an address here, said that
he believed Japan ' had no desire to
keep Kiau Chau. He asserted that it
was Japan's policy to prevent a stir-up
in China. "The retaining of Kiau
Chau," he said, "would mean the dan
ger of a revolution in China, and in
curring the ill Will of America. Japan
is appreciative of Germany's contribu
tion to Japanese civilisation, but it is
resentful because the kaiser first raised
the cry of the 'yellow peril.' "
Italy May fight Austria. :
Paris There are indications of acute
diplomatic tension between Vienna and
Rome, according to the correspondent
of the Petit Parisien in the latter city.
"Austria, it is declared, has reproach
ed Italy for according facilities to the
allied fleets in the Adriatic and it is
possible that a declaration of war be
tween Italy and Austria will be an
nounced early next week.

Portland There was a big run of
all kinds of stock at the North Port
land yards. . The result on prices was
a decline of a quarter on hogs and a
weaker feeling in the cattle market.
Sheep held firm.
' The best price obtainable in the cat

one load- going at that figure. Five

Seattle. " " '
Seattle The outlook for next week
is continued low markets for fruit, the
food staple that has not as yet partici
pated in the excitement incident upon
the war. Cantaloupes may be the sole
exception, but these have been so low
recently as to scarcely pay the cost of
handling. . .
Low apples are outlined for the bal
ance of theseaaon, running far Into
the cold storage regions with $11.25
predicted by jobbers as the top for the
year. It is pointed out that even
though the war should stop tomorrow,
the season is too far advanced to per
mit of shipping the fruit to the be
sieged countries without appalling
shrinkage. Growers in the'Wenatchee
valley, with a fair price this season,
would have gone on a cash basis. "
Cantaloupes are scheduled to go
higher next week. The market, glut
ted for the past week with good; qual
ity fruit, shows slight reduction in vol
ume of receipts, and growers will
make an attempt to get a profit from
the fruit. Prices are 76c for ponies
and $1 for standards. , .- j :
. There has been much complaint as
to the general quality of the peach
offerings. Hanford has shipped in
the best Elbertas, and while other sec
