W. M. Lucas, of Seattle, and Mrs.
Frank J. Wilt, wife of a Tacoma physi
cian, suffered fractured bones, but
neither was seriously hurt.
Coginske was returning from a trip
to Sumner. He evidently attempted to
drive his machine across the track
ahead of the train but misjudged its
speed and the distance. The train was
making betweeu 40 and 50 miles nn
hour and struck the automobile in the
rear, throwing it about 25 feet. The
body of Abel was hurled about 60 feet.
Orpet Has Gene to
the Woods to Rest
Waukegan, 111., July 17. Will Orpet,
acquitted Saturday night of Marion
Lambert's murder, sought refuge from
the limelight in the sunlight today.
With some of his relatives, Orpet went
to one of the many "pino woods" in
Wisconsin or northern Illinois. His pa
rents were silent as to his whereabouts,
admitting only that he had gone to the
"Will was in the public aye for six
months," Orpet 's futher said. "What
he does now is nobody'B business. He
was tired of the limelight."

Tacoma, Wash., July 17 As the cul
mination of a series of riots, during the
progress of the. longshoremen's strike
hore, in which two men have been kill
ed, two seriously wounded, another stab
bed, and a score or more badly beaten,
city and county authorities today noti
fied union officials that no further
picketing would bo permitted and
crowds will not bo allowed to congre
gate on the streets. The unioniHts are
said to have agreed 'to abide by the
orders issued by Commissioner of Pub
lic Safety Pettit, following an inves
tigation of tho tragedy enacted Sun
day afternoon, when strikers attacked
an automobile containing non-union
longshoremen bound for the Milwaukee
docks and shot to death Rangval Lei
nann, aged 22, one of the occupants.
Sam James, a longshoreman, received
a bullet in the chest and his condition
is serious today, although physicians be
lieve he will likely recover.
Just where the bullet came from that
wounded James is a question which the
officers have been unable to determine.
Otto Lcinann, father of the dead man,
says his son had a gun and pulled it,
but did not fire the weapon.
Five striking longshoremen who were
identified by the elder Leinann and
John Turcott, another occupant of the
strike breakers' automobile, aa having
been in the crowd that attacked them
are held in the city jail on an open
charge pending an investigation by the
prosecuting attorney's office. They are
C. Carlson, George Falgetty, Victor At
ola, W. C. Speaks and Ben Knutson.
At the Theatres
It'B an ill wind that blows nobody
good, and by the same token it 's a wet
spell of weather that nobody can get
some benefit from. The weather yes
terday was suitable Tot nothing- except
indoor pursuits. Consequently Salem
theatres enjoyed excellent business.
Satisfactory entertainment was pro
vided at each of the three houses. The
Bligh offered a bill made up of three
nets of Hippodrome vaudeville, each act
constituting of a very capable team of
sketch artists, and a Bluebird photo
play entitled "The Eye of God," fea
turing Tyrone Power and Lois Weber.
At the Oregon the Royal Hawaiian
Serenade, seven melodious mid serile
natives of "the isles of paradise," add
ed materially to a picture program
which consisted of "Notorious Gal
lagher," a Metro production featuring
William Hard and Marguerite Snow,
and another of tho Sidney Drew come
dies. The usual William Fox produc
tion, together with the customary Pathe
Weekly, gave the never-failing delight
to me patrons or re liberty. "Sins of
Men," in which Stuart Holmes and
Dorothy Bernard are featured, is a
strong picntre. .

Berlin, July 17. German newspapers
are now rallying to the support of
Chancellor Von Bethmann-Hollweg,
who has been under attack by the ad
vocates of unrestricted submarining.
They deny that theThancellor's peace
discussions have weakened the position
of Germany and reassert their confi
dence in the defeat of the present allied
The Lokal Anzeiger, commenting up
on the press interpretation of the
chancellor's opposition to annexation of
Belgium, declared today:
"It is absolutely grotesque to consid
er the chancellor's position as indicat
ing a fear of the military future. Ev
ery judicious-minded German has
strengthened his confidence in the out
come of the allied offensive."
The Cologne Gazette and other lead
ing journals are outspoken in their
faith in Von Bethmann-Hollweg. They
declare it would be an insane move to
"swap horses in the middle of the
For the most part, prominent Ger
mans are not discussing politics at this
time, preferring to await the outcome
of the allied offensive.
All the critics believe the British

failures to make great headway, though
it is realized that the fighting is not

the British have huge reserves in
