In the Heart of the Balkans
TheWorld War News Center
By William G. Shepherd.
(United Press stuff correspondent.)
Snlouica, Nov. 1 (By muil.) Here's
the World Wur news center. At last
tho stormy little Balkans have come
into tho world's eye.
Correspondents from nil corners of
what used to bo civilization flock here
to be near tho groat German push 400
miles north of ui.
There are other lesser correspondents
hanging around the hotels of Suloniea,
mostly qucerly dressed chups with queer
hubits and manners, newspaper men
from European countries, who have
spent their lives in the Bulknns trying
to get the busy world interested in their
little affairs; men who have lived in
queer Balkan cities and have dashed
mudly to tho Balkan telegraph offices

they themselves thought tremendously

' Halonica harbor Is filled with great
boats, warships, torpedo boats, hospital
ships, and two or three boats which
have huge American flngs painted on
their aides and which are making smnll
fortunes for their owners in running the
submarine gauntlet with supplies for
the Balkan allies.
That busy harbor of itself Is enough
to delight the soul of the Balkan journ
list. But last evening, just at sun
down, came the climax of his excito
ment. An aeroplane was snaring over
the bay of Suloniea. Behind it, across
tho harbor, loomed Mount Olympus,
whero the old Greek gods used to live
and cut their caporB.
Just to see an aeroplane with uiymp

ever since tne gods aieu, as a imcK-

COURT HOUSE NEWS
Judge Galloway handed down a de
cree in favor of the defendant in the
enso of Arthur J. ltenr.au by his guur-
dinn, Dorothy V. Rauzau against J. O
Mavis and William r-sch es sheriff. .The
plaintiff asked that the sheriff be re
strained from selling tho property of
the pluintiff upon an execution to sat
isfy a judgment of 'i78.27 held by Mr.
Davis. Tho testimony ohowed that the
defendant did not know that the prop
erty was not claimed by the plaintiffs
and that ho extended them credit upon
the belief that they owned it. The de
cree of tho court dismisses the plain
tiff's complaint and orders the sale of
the property upon the execution, W. C.
Winslow is attorney for tho plaintiff
nnd Charles F. I,enon and Charles L.
McNary represont tho plaintiffs.
Tbo suit to recover money brought by

Candy must contain no alcohol, since
alcohol is a poison, but if the confection
does contain alcohol it must be labeled
to this effect, according to the decision
of the state supreme court in nn opinion
handed down in tho case of H. R. Hoef
ler, doing business as "Hoefler's"
against J. D. Mickel, state food and
dniry commissioner. The apparent con
flict, however, is explained by two pro
visions of tho pure food laws of the
state dealing with adulterations and la
One chapter of the law states that
enndy must contain none of a list, of
certain drugs stimulants and another
chapter says that tho state food ,nml
dairy commissioner may establish the
standard of rum, brandy, or alcohol
that candy may eontuin and if any of
these ingredients aro put into the candy
tho lnbel must state the percentage of
alcohol that tho candy contains. In the
case before the court this morning it
was stated that "Hoefler's Centennial
Chocolates," manufactured at Astoria
conlaincd 1.05 per cent of alcohol by
volume. Mr. Mickel seized some of
theso chocolates offered for sale in
Multnomah county because tho label
did not stato that thev contained alco
hol. Hoeflor secured a temporary order re
straining Mickel from condemning any
moro chocolates but after the argu
ment in the circuit court Judge Hen'y
l. McGinn decided that the candy vio
lated the pure food Tegulntions and the
food and dairy commissioner was giv
en the right to seize all of the candy he
found cliorcd for sulo, Hoefler ap
pealed to the supreme court.
Justice Burnett in his opinion stated
that sinco all toxicologists held alcohol
to bo a pawn there was no question
that tho enndy containing alcohol was
adulterated and therefore in violation
of the law. Sinco the label did not
stato that tho candy contained adulter
ants it was also an infraction of the
law relative to misbranding and tl"
lower court was upheld in till its Til
ings. Tho stato law gives the food and
dairy commissioner tho right to estab
lish tho amount of rum, brandy or alco
hol that may be put in candy but as yet
he has made no ruling on this point. A
prominent Nulem confectioner said this
morning that confectioners in general
throughout the state had been using lit
tlu or no brandy, in any caudy since the
present enso had been under litigation.
