Thought to Have Been Started

Washington, May 26 The state de
partment denied without qualification
the reports 'that Secretary Lansing
intended to 'resign.
tt it declared the rumor was a part
of the propaganda which has been
progressing for months. It it Inti
mated that German sources are fos
leriim the rumors. Secretary I-insing
attended the cabinet meetings today.
He showed tiifiit of his recent illness
while talking about the resignation
rumor. He said that persons circulat
ing lite story knew of its falsity. He
declared the story was wirelessed to
Merlin as tiarr nf a propaganda
while international relations are 'deli
cate. It was nevacr printed in Berlin.

leuiified counterfeiter who shot and
'Hllcd Policeman Mnriarity when be
attempted to arrest him, barricaded
himself in a cabin on the mud flats
and resisted arrest. The police shot
and killed him after an hour's battle.
President P. I.. Campbell, of the U.,
was in the city today.
Isadore Colin, son of A. Colin, tal-
or for the Sternberg stores, who was
injured yesterday by falling under
the wheels of one of the Albany Sand
and Gravel company's wagons, is im
proving rapidly, and Dr. Beauchamp
believes, that unless injuries that have
not become apparent result in the
head be will recover without diffi
culty. The wheels passed over his
head and chest, tire marks snowing
on the side of the head over the tem
ple. One collar bone was broken and
the other dislocated.
The four year old boy showed all
kinds of nerve and grit. When he
was carried ill to his frantic mother
he admonished her not to worry, that
he was alright and only needed a cloth
wrapped about his head. . ,
The accident occurred about 10
o'clock yesterday morning when Isa
dore and some other children were
playing in the street. C. Cruinc, of the
Albany Sand and Gravel Co. was de
livering a Ibad of gravel to a build
ing In the Fast F.nd of the city, and
some cement and a few other mater
ials were included ill the order, but
there was no room ,on the load
for them 'so a trailer was fastened on
behind. A light farm wagon was used,
Tt was this that ran over-the boy
when he dashed in between tho two
wagons and tried to climb up on the
tongue of the second. The wonder is
bow he escaped having his skull
crushed, Mr. Crume was not held to
blame, for he stopped the team as
soon as he could and did not tec the
boy run into the accident.

the phone rang:
'When will the'eircus parade be?
"At 10:30" and ture enough it came
along, with several thousand people
watching the gilded cart, tbe animals,
the horseback people, the clowns, all
the oddities that people like to see,
ending with the calliope. It was a
good one. .
The press agent came, in, C. Warde
Brown, a fine fellow to deal with,
giving one a good impression of the
circus to follow, and a long experi
ence has demonstrated the fact that
these agents speak for circuses. The
Eugene and Salem papers were scan
ned and both declared the circus made
a hit at those places, speaking highly
of the performance.
At 2 o'clock the show itself was
presented for the first time to a good
sized crowd, a performance full of in
teresting features and numerous nov
elties. It it declared the performing
elephants have never been cbaten. A
number of things are not seen in oth

But a big thing about a circus is the
fact that it is a circus, with an indi

Recent German Gains Stir Them
Up to Realization of
On the East Side the Austrians
Are Crowding the Italians
(By United Press)
Paris, Miay 24 The French td
pulsed violent attacks northwest of
Verdun, and made gains on the east
bank, it is announced. They recap
tured the trench near Thiaumont with
a smashing grenade attack. The Ger
mans continued a heavy fire east of
the Meuse, especially around Dead
man's Hill, and Avocourt. Infantry
attacks were halted, however. A
heavy bombardment there this morn
ing it is believed is preliminary to
further assults today.
The German gains on both banks
of the Meuse aroused the French
sense to the seriousness of the Ver
dun situation. No anxiety is felt, how
ever. Even should the Germans cap
ture Verdun it would not alarm Paris.
It is impossible to tabulate the losses
until the artillery ceases. Possibly the
'casualties will never be known.
Vienna, May 26. The Austrians
stormed and captured the Italian posi
tions at Chiesa, twenty-one miles
northwest of Vicenza, after a three
day battle. This drives the wedge into
the Italian front,, which will compel
the Italian left wing in Adige valley
to retreat five miles. Ten guns were
siezed in the sudden plunge. The Aus
trian left wing is progressing, meet
ing terrific opposition at every inch.
It is centering the heaviest assults
east of Borgo. Corno Verde, south
east of Borgo, was captured.

President Wilson Has Speech
Ready to Be Delivered at
Tomorrow's Meettng.
(By United Press)
Washington, May 26. Addressing
the first meeting of the Peace League
today, ex-Preaident Taft denied
strongly that there is any constitu
tional objection to its scheme for
world peace. He denied Bryan's dec
laration that a conttitutional amend
ment it necessary before the United
States could agree to a treaty not to
use military power against signers
of a general peace convention.
1 Pretident Wilton completed today
the tpeech he will deliver before the
League tomorrow. It will require 20
minutes. It is believed the president
may indicate that cessation of hostil
ities should not await an overwhelm
ing victory on either side. President
Taft said tbe league is not trying to
stop the present war, but has the dis
tinct purpose of preventing a prob
able recurrence of such a conflict. '
12,400 Gallons of Black, Nasty
Oil, Was Scattered Along
the Tratk.
' .. 1
Bumping a car with a tank of crude
oil too severely last evening, in the
yard of the Southern Pacific, caused a
loss of 12,400 gallons of oil. When
a switching engine pushed some cars
into the oil car it caused the tank to
crowd forward, breaking the pipe un
derneath completely off, and there
fore letting the oil out upon! the
ground. The car was standing on the
fourth track, nearly opposite the de
pot. It wag hurritf'soutrrtertne"end
of the switch and thence back to the
oil tank, a stream of oil covering the
track as it went along, a long black
line of the stuff.. At the tank the last
of the 12,400 gallons oozed out, form
ing a considerably of a lake, and all
along the stick stuff made a mess of
things. A crew of men was sent to
scraping it up, carting it off and cov
ering the tracks with new sand. It
looked like a big loss, but crude oil
is cheap, less than a dollar a barrel,
two or two and a half cents a gallon,
so the damage by loss of oil is only
$200 or $300. -
Tonight's offering at the Globe the
atre is a superb presentation of . the
five part Pathe feature, "The House
of Fear," with Jeanne Eagles, Shel
don. Lewis and Arnold Daly in the
leading characters.
The story deals with Ashton Kirk,
a young man of high social position
find great wealth with a craving for
the mysterious and a love for match
ing wits with criminals in solving mys
teries, unravels the secret of "The
House of Fear," as the residence of
'Cramp is known. -
At one time Cramp lived in Mex
ico. He was a clever engraver, and
at one time under financial stress he
forged some currency plates for a
band of Mexicans headed by Alva.
This explained why Mexicans were
seen in the vicinity of Cramp's house.
How Ashton-Kirk brought about the
capturing of the gang is cleverly told
in this five reel feature. Two other
reels, including comedy, and the Im
permial Musical Comedy Co. in songs
and dances make up the big bill.

about the best city on the Pacific
Coast, next to Portland. Here are
some pointers. -
Albany is the pivotal city of the
Willamette valley. From it, in every
direction railroads diverge like the
web of a spider, making it the great
est railroad center in Oregon, with
the single exception of Portland. Sit
uated at the heart of the Willamette
valley, which it is often aaid contains
more good agricultural land, includ
ing, of course, its tributary valleys,'
than the entire state of Washington,
it has lying around it in every direc
tion some of the finest farms in Ore
gon, in most cases owned and operat-
ted by the most progressive farmers
of tbe West ' '
Among the most prosperous and
beautiful cities of the state and con
tinues on the upgrade. : .
Citizens of Albany are as keen a
set of people as you will see any
where, active, generous and enter
prising. " ..:..'
If there is any city in Oregon or
Washington that has a more active
lot of citizens than Albany has I have
overlooked that city, for I have failed
to find a place where the people all -
seem to work together in harmony for
the upbuilding of their town as the
Albany people do.'' " v :';;
