No matter what the changes in the European war sit
uation Germany remains supremely confident and un
afraid. The dispatches yesterday from Berlin sent by
Ackerman who is perhaps closer to the German govern
ment than any newspaper correspondent, says the asser
tion of the leaders on hearing of Rumania s action was
that "it might prolong the war but would not change its
results." At the same time the great drive of the allies
along the western front has apparently reached the stage
of the German offensive at Verdun, where the reports
daily are in substance: "All attacks were repulsed.
German officers say the Somme drive is at an end solar
as making advance is concerned and that the allies have
reached their limit at that point. It begins to look as
though this was largely true. But there is no disputing
the fact that the Russian bear is still crashing through all
defenses and is so far resistless. With Rumania assisting
him, and allowing him an open road across her territory
and to attack Austria, some history will be made efoie
long. Two new battle fronts are likely, with the province
of Transylvania, in Austria, one and another in Bulgaria.
Greece will probably be the sixteenth nation to get into
the war. She has used every effort to fo?ep out but it looks
as if she could no longer avoid taking the plunge. ith
Bulgaria invading her territory and killing her soldieis
there is no escaping a fight. Outside the Balkans but few
countries remain to join the fray, and Phaps the end has
been reached or will be when Greece enters the list. The
dispatches this morning are to the eftect that Germany
expects Greece to join the allies. At the same time it is
stated, Germany pursuing her usual tactics will begin an
offensive against Rumania, and try to compel the f ight ng
to be done on Rumania territory. General Mack nson
who commanded the drive through Serbia yiU in
charge, which indicates there will be some hard fighting
in the near future.
Another jolt or two like the Chicago wheat market
got Monday and those bakers will have to rearrange their
bread prices on a lower level. It is not probable the diop
will last long, it being occasioned largely by the idea that
Rumania joining the allies would soon give Russia an
outlet for her wheat. This will not follow soon as the
grip of the Turk must be pried loose from the Dardanelles,
Among the statistics compiled by Labor Commissioner
HofF is that eighty firms in the state engaged in furnish
ing atetracts of title, that they employ 240 persons who
receive a total annual wage of $224,640. This is consider
able money to pay for knowing your real est a ite i tile is
all right and then not being certain of it. It is a pietty
strong indorsement of the Torren's system.
Pat Calhoun, former street railway magnate of San
Francisco, claims to have spent $14,000,000 in five years.
The fun of making a spending record like that should in a
measure alleviate the pinch of poverty irom which 1 at
claims at the present time to be sufienng.
Why take steps to prevent immigration after the
European war ends? If it keeps up for another year or
two and the stories told about the mortality are not ex
aggerated there won't be anyone left in Europe to do the

Labor Day will see the Walsh-White dispute ended and
in all likelihood, the railroad scrap realy begun.
President Wilson has decided to go before congress
with the railroad troubles and will do so it is stated today.
He is getting tired of the whole affair and so is the coun
try. Yesterday he requested the employes to withdraw
their strike order sent out, and which provides for a strike
Labor Day unless an agreement is. reached. This request
was turned down by the labor leaders, who claim they
have no power to act. The result is that the president will
take the business before congress. The railroads have
refused to accept an eight hour day and it is very prob
able the eight hour law will soon be adopted and made to
apply to railroads as well as other pursuits. Then it will
have to be accepted and complied with. The railroads
know this, hence it is hard to see what they are objecting
to the eight hour system for, since they know that sooner
or later they are bound to have it. They have some object
behind their stubbornness that has not been made public
yet, for they certainly are not foolish enough to stand
up and fight a proposition they know they can be made to
accept. It looks as though the whole matter was one of
nolitics. the railroads instead of the tariff this time beine
usuu in uie ciiui i iu put uie auniniisu uuun in a nuif.
The Oregonian evidently thinks it a crime to permit
anything to be imported to the United States. It would
have the markets of this country turned over to the
Americans entirely and the manufacturers of this coun
try told to go to it, that no person on earth would be al
lowed to compete with them. What would conditions be
under such an arrangement? We have one case of it in
the Standard Oil company which fixes prices to suit itself
and until very recently.almost without opposition. If this
country did not buy abroad and continued to sell there
we would in the course of time have every dollar of coin
in the world, and as we bought nothing abroad all cash
trade would be stopped and we could sell nothing because
there is nothing we could get in return.
The protective tariff is simply a means provided by law
by which the whole people can be taxed and the proceeds
be given to the few. Theoretically it sounds plausible but
in practice results in wholesale robbery.
Another thing shown by Commissioner Hoff's statis
tics is that there are 617 retail confectionery places in the
state. The total pay roll in addition to the proprietors'
averages in employes 1234, and in money $6:7,263. Ap
parently eating candy is quite an industry.
Colonel Roosevelt seems to have hobbled his enthus

The man who writes, the long year through,
hears readers say, "Write something new !
The thoughts you spring, from day to day,
are bearded things, all worn and gray." But
there is nothing new on earth; there is no
thought of modern birth; there is no plot
or song or tale that Noah didn't say was
stale. I've read James Boswell's book
again; in it Sam Johnson, best of men, ex
pressed his views on every theme of which
the mortal mind may dream. And like an
oracle he spoke, and I delight to watch his
smoke, but never did he make remark that wasn't known
in Noah's ark. But his remarks, though sere and gray,
were spoken in the Johnson way, and, though he's been
a long time dead, we cherish still the things he said. Since
every thought on earth is old, and baggy-kneed and blue
with mold, it profits not for me and you to strain at say
ing something new. We'll take old thoughts we find
astray, and doll them up as best we may.

Kentucky and Vermont militia, which
has been mobilized, has been ordered
to the border, the war department an
nounced today.
Following is the text of the an
nouncement issued by the war press
"Orders previously issued temporar

militia of Vermont, Kentucny and Ohio
to the southern department, have been
revoked. These troops will join the
division to which assigned in the

militia called into the federnl service."
The war department would give no
information why the militia was order
ed to the border at this time, when the
strike situation is more serious, than at
the time of the last order holding them
home. The only explanation was that
tho above troops are a part of tactical
uuits at the border already- organized
and the department wishes to completed
the movement.

every day. but she had not beeu allowed '

only dimly conscious of his presence.
Today she was better.
She longed for Clifford, as women do
for the father of their children, for
getting his neglect, thinking that now
he must surely love and be kind to
her, if only for baby's sake.
How she wanted her baby! the doctor
had promised she should have her for
a few minutes if she would promise not
to excite herself. So she lay very
quietly waiting, a happy smile on her

The First Visit
Without waiting for a reply, Clifford
Hammond entered the room, leaned
over the bed, and. after kissing Mil
dred, asked:
"How do you feel this morningf
Von are looking much brighter and bet
ter. I expect you will soon be sitting
up." He then repented part of a con
versation he had had with the doctor
that morning nnent her condition.
Mildred smiled happily, retaining her
hold upon his hand.
"Yes, I am better," her voice was;

anxious to see my baby. Really, I am
quite jealous that you should have seen
her first," the loving smile she gave
him belying her words.
She looked so sweet, so childish, lying
there, it was almost impossible to be

"I want my baby." she repeated.
"Tlease make them bring her to me."
Clifford appeared preoccupied, and
the nur.e answered her plea for her
"You shall have her in a little while.
Just as soon as you are rested from
Mr. Hammond's visit. You know the
doctor's orders were 'Only one at a
time.' "
Mildred gave a little sigh of content,
softly pressing Clifford's hand, which
she still held closely in her thin little

Clifford laughingly replied:
"I guess all babies look pretty much

upon her happy reverie. "I have made
arrangements to go on a fishing trip,
and we leave today. I shall go away

casting rather a shamefaced glance at

from Mildred 's wondering eyes.
His wife stirred uneasily on her pil

She had not heard rightly. He was try

Clifford couldn 't do such a cruel, selfish
thing as to leave her alone at this time
