This would depend on Holland's de
termination, however, literally to
"sink or ewim." The scheme of de
fense of tho little neutral embodies
concentration of her forces in a re
stricted area "the Holland fortress"
comprising the provinces of North
and South Holland, with parts of Zee
land and Utrecht. Two thirds of this
area is surrounded by the sea. On the
land side are strongly established mil
itary works, rendered exceedingly dif
ficult of attacks by inundations.
Tho German land apprc aches to the
Holland border are hilly. Amsterdam
is well fortified and there are inunda
tion protections which might preclude
aunceesful attack by the Germans.
Control of tho inundations has not
. been entirely in military hands, how
ever, and the fear is expressed here
that Germany ' long arm of intrigue
may have a'retched ta the point where
ithe flooding of the country to prevent
invasion may be jeopardized by Ger
man a-fflts.

and comparison. It is evident from the

of this Honor Roll may be printed or

Today the United Slates government
under an order issued from the. office
of the quartermaster general, has com-mnndeere-d
tho entire 1918 clip of wool
of the country and all spot wools re
maining from the 1917 clip. The price
to bo paid is to be that of July SO, 1917
but as details have not been worked
out it is impossible to give prices at
this time.
This word was received from Wash
ington, D.. C, this morning by the Col
umbia Basin Wool Warehouse company
and from the same place by the 11. P.
Norton company.
From tho telcgramt received, it is be
lieved the producer will receive every
possible advantage in the matter ot
grading and prico. It is understood that
a profit will be nllowed sufficient to
stimulate production.
The decision is presumably the result
of a conference of members of the Na
tional Wool Browcrs' asosciation wi'h
the price fixing committee of the war
industries board.
Tho dealers at tho conference which
began yesterday represent interests
from Boston, New York, Philadelphia
St. Louis and Chicago. The growers ar
from practically all the wool growing
Just how much wool remains from the
1917 clip unsold in tho warehouses of
Portland is not known but an inventory
was begun immediately upon receipt of
the Washington dispatch to determine
the exact amount.
One effort of Jhis action will be to
put an immediate stop to the selling
of wool of cither the 1917 or 1918 clips.
A wire received by the H. P. Norton
company this morning surs:
"Tk, government is going to take
over all the wool which has been offered
it by the Boston wool trade, which in-'
eludes all the wool held in Boston nndl
all the wool which has been offered by I
tho Boston dealers belonging to consign-!
ors from different parts of the country
The government will also take over all
of the new clip. The price has not yet
be.cn arranged, but it will be bused on
July 30, 1917."
Wool prices in Oregon on July 3Q,
1917, follow:
Willamette Valley, coarse 5860 cents
a pound; medium 60(oj65 cents. Eastern
Oregon fine, 00C0 cents; coarse, 55
(fi60 cents.
It must not be taken for granted these
are the prices the government will pay
for Oregon wool. They are published
merely to give an idea of what was ac
tually paid in this state at that tlnv3.
The difference in quotations here in
other wool producing states, in Boston
and elsewhere is considerable and what
the government is expected to do is to
arrive at a compromise which will be
fair to everybody concerned. '
Some Good Advice
"Don't think too much of your own
methods. Watch other pooplu's ways
aud learn from them." This is good ad
vice, especially when bilious or consti
pated. Vou will find many people who
use Chamberlain's Tablofs for theso
ailments with the best results, and will
do well to follow their example.
