Ibo question of tho right of the crews of fivo Dani-di ships to refuse to sail for Kngli-di poits is now before a court which is considering their excuse that Gorranny is not likely to respect a neutral flag. Following precedent, which seems to lime made Sunday n popular day for such raids, n lotto German ncro- plano flew over several cast eoasl towns last night, dropping bombs which did only slight material dam ago and caused little nlnrni. Fighting in tho Carpathian moun tains still is being fiercely pio-ccuted bj the ii-sinn and tho Austro-Gor-inan forces, hut apparently without dcei-ivo results for either side.

NO. 286 l"! VAWTER TELLS OF WORK DONE Jackson County's representative Com ments on Legislation Affeqtim? Southern Orerjon Horticultural Bill Killed Jackson Delegation Opposed Introduction of Politics. (Hy Representative V. I. Vnwlcr.) What measures were beforo tho legi-laturo of particular interest to Jackson county? One was tho horticultural .bill, which I introduced. It was prepared bj' the Horticultural societj', whic;h met hero last November. Tltij) tiill proposed nn entirely new horticul tural code nnd provided for one com missioner, with his hendfpmrlers in Portland, nml provided ior.Ajtfcnitcd number of Ktate iimpectors.-rCThis'bill enrricd iio larger appropriation than tho existing law. For some reason the bill met with Htrenuoiis opposition from certain members of tho present commission nnd some cx-niembcrs. It appears thnt there has been a good deal of ill-feeling between the differ ent factions of tho existing commis sion during tho two or threo j'ears last pa-t. JJ was claimed by tho op ponents to this hill that it was fram ed in the interest of Mr. Roberta, who for some time hns been president of the existing horticultural board, and was not in the interest of the general public, with tho result that tho bill was mado the target of all factions and was defeated some days beforo tho session closed. Home ltulc Law 'One fenturo of tho proposed law was of especial valuo to Jackson county, ns it contained ft"rparH$raph known as tho "home rule'' law, pro viding thnt Jackson county should hne its own entomologist, nnd co oMrating with the county court, Iho county entomologist would have full control in nil matters n fleeting horti cultural interests. I Lelicvo nt n fu ture time this proposed net will bo revived nnd will hceomo the law of the state. The Siskiyou rond hill is of some imiwrtnnee. I think it will accom plish what it was intended to accom plish, namely, to commit tho fetnto highway commission to Iho comple tion of tho highway over tho Siski-you-J. Urging, the adoption of this measure, I claimed that the Siskijoiis wero a natural barrier to tho south part of tho state in tho same manner and to the same extent, although in n different waj', that Ibo Columbia ihcr is to an cut ranee into the stnto from the north. I stated ou the floor of the house that Jackson conntv had never found fault that tho state had assumed and undertaken to pay in terest on tho bonds issued for tho building of the interstate hridgo be tween Oregon and Washingten: that it was n public improvement, of gen eral benefit lo the state, and while Jackson county would have very littlo direct use of tho interstate bridge, nt the sumo time it was an improvement needed for the upbuilding of tho stnt. This view was genernllj nceept ed by representatives, with tho result thnt the Siskiyou hill has passed both the.senato and tho houso, nnd I think doubtless will bo signed by tho gov ernor.
