Government officials expected the
present crisis in Mexico would develop

Only the wholesale massacre of for

Cost for Bridge at Each of
Five Possible Sites Made
by Engineer Bowlby
Official estimates of tho cost, of son
struction of a bridge across the Wil
'aiueito river to connect Marion and
i'olk counties and to replace the old
structure which has outlived its une
fulness uud is in a dangerous condition,
havo beeu completed, and u joint moot
ing of the county courts of Murioa and
i'olk counties will bo held next week,
probably Wednesday, to decide upou
the class of bridge to bo constructed
and the locution of same.
The plans are drawn in two classes.
Class A includes a 32-foot roadway of
sufficient strength to accomodate in
terurban traffic, should tho counties
decide to permit tho Oregon Electric or
some other railroad, to come in, assist
with the construction and bear a por
tion of the expense. Cluss B includes
a 30-foot roadway, without street car
tratfic. In ull cases the estimates are
made upon a H.j-pound per squaro foot
live load basis, wito a concrete floor
and wood block paving,
The estimates Are made upon the
proposition of wfictncr tho bridge is
constructed at the foot of one ot the
five principal streets of the city, con
sidered the most lensible, Marion, ten
tcr, ( heiuelicta, Court and State streets
being considered the most practicable
nnd feasible, us it is not thought prue
ticiinle to go further south than State
street for the Marion count v approach
The State street estimate in based upon
the basis of a two-draw bridge, winch
will be necessary to confoim to govern
ment requirements, and ull of the other
estimates are bused upon a ona-druw
bridge. If it is decided to adopt the
( lass A bridge, providing for niterur
liuu street cur traffic, it will be neces
sary to go before the legislature for

German Influence Succeeds in
Sending Turkey Against
SULTAN'S TROOPS ARE
MARCHING ON BATUM
Its Capture Would Give Ger
many large Quantities of
Badly Needed Oil
(By J. W, T. Mason, former Loudon
correspondent for the United Press.)
New York, Nov. 14. Turkey's first
offensive agaiust Russia was revealing
itself today in Trans Caucasia.
It was apparently in considerable
force and indicated that the Oormans
were succeeding in their efforts to in
duce tho Turks to direct their main
campaign against the czar.
The Ottoman troops' movement to
ward Batum constituted a sudden coun
ter offensive which appears to have
caught the Russians unprepared.
Bnttim is a heavil" fortified seaport,
20 miles from the Turkish frontier, and
one of the czar's principal military
bases in Trans Caucasia. The Russians
had been operating south of it, in the
district around Mount Ararat, and
seem to have left the northern roadway
into their territory practically un
The capture of Batum would bo an
important victory for the Turks and a
doubly important one for the Hermans,
since it is the port for the Iloku oil
fields. If a few of Germany's siege
guns can be brought to hear against
its defenses, it sp edv fall will be in
evitable. It Is Unlikely, however, that
the Germans have yet been able to
send any of theso guns to tho Turks
and an assault on the city without them
should require considerable time.
Germany Must Have It. -Nevertheless
it is to Oorniany's in
torest to tnko the fortress even at great
tinge qunntities of petroleum are
stored in Datum nnd this the Herman
army needs urgently as fuel for Its
military transportation service. Oer
man gold hns searched everywhere for
tho precious fluid but the supply is far
below the demand. Scandinavian and
Dutch smugglers had to abandon their
traffic in it, on nccount of the allies'
threats, nnd the flerinaii army un
doubtedly is husbanding every drop it
Hiitmn's capture, however, would re
lease large quantities of the fluid for
(lerinun use. It could be sent across
Turkey without difficulty and no In
superable obstacle exists to its passage
through tho llulkniis, so long as Bul
garia's and Rumanin's peace Is main
tained, into Austria-Hungary,
For this reason the Turks' Initial of
fensive against the Russians is being
dictated, from the Oerman standpoint,
by economic necessity as well as by

the case reopened and the former de

the extent of giving the department

If ho is unsuccessful in this effort be
will go before'the next legisluturo and
ask for such remedy, in the form of
legislation, which will enable the
department to regulate and control tho
business of trust companies in the state
in tho same manner as ordinary bunking
companies are governed.
If there is any class of business
that needs regulation and supervision
t is the trust companies," said Mr.
Sargent, in discussing tho subject. "If
a person places his money in tho keep

ever ho feels the least bit uiwnsy us

ever, ho places his money in trust with

cannot get it out even though he knows

obliged to sit Idly by with his hands
folded and watch lis money 'go up in
