KAISER HAS PNEUMONIA
BERLIN, Dec. 9—Emperor William is laid up with an attack of pneumonia combined with nervous depression due to over-exertion and the doctors have advised him not to return to the front if he wishes to save his life. He has only recently returned to Berlin after visiting all the bat tlefields. TURKS HURT ALLIES PARIS, Dec. 9.—The entry of Turkey into the war has made its effect felt by compelling the British as well as the Russians to keep large forces for the defense of Egypt, Persia and Caucasia. The forces being used in those quarters could have been sent into the French-Belgian bat tle and would have been of the greatest aid. France is also forced to keep stronger garrisons in her northern African possessions for the reason that the I urkish activities have undoubtedly created an ominous stir amongst the Moham medan people everywhere. SWEDISH SHIPS BLOWN UP STOCKHOLM, Dec. !>.—The Swedish press is now indignantly condemning the planting of mines by the Gei inans along the Finnish coasts. Three large Swedish ships have been destroyed already in that quarter and foit} men perished when they were sent to the bottom. Tiaffic in Finnish waters lias been suspended until the sea has l>een swept for mines and the greatest injury has been in flicted on the trade of Scandinavian countries. The mines were laid by German war ships which seem to have full control of the Baltic. PARLIAMENT SITTING LONDON, Dec. 0.—The present session of parliamenti is taken up almost entirely with war matters but the priv ate members of the house of commons are refraining as much as possible 1 rom asking questions that might em barras the government. The whole island is now one con tinuous military training camp. On every military range hundreds of recruits are being taught the handling of guns and on all the great public maneuvre grounds thou sands of men are going through evolution and drill. A great drawback to many of the recruits is that they never had the least training iii handling rifles but those who do not show sufficient intelligence to learn quickly are soon eliminated. The members of the old volunteer and terri torial corps who have volunteered for the front are much better timber for the making of troops and they are being quickly whipped into shape. Thousands of them are al ready on the firing line and acquitting themselves well. The officers of the new forces are mainly chosen from the universities and one result of the war will be a big change in the standing of the military caste. It is stated here but not officially that the Canadian troops, like the Austral ians, will be sent from this time forward to Egypt. Some have already been sent there. ; YOUR RESPECT And good will we would like to have, no matter where you live. If you live in Seward or vicinity we would like to have your banking business also.

Wc | lypn Jeweler and Silversmith ■ 3111 LK, |||5 Second St., SEATTLE CHOLERA SPREADING ROTTERDAM, Dec. 9.—The cholera epidemic in Austria and Germany is now assuming alarming propor tions. In November there were thirty six cases of the disease in Germany but in Austria and Hungary the spread is much more rapid. In Austria there have been j first week of November there were ninety deaths in the first week of November there were ninty deaths in the city of Vienna alone and the appearanec of the epidemic in that capital is the most serious fact connected with it. In the same week in Hungary there were five hundred cases. Owing to the war there is a fear that the means of checking the disease will be found inadequate. No in formation has been given out as to whether the epidemic has reached the German and Austrian armies or not but if it does the task of preventing a frightful mortality would be well nigh impossible. SENTENCED TO DEATH LONDON, Dec. 9.—Nicholas Aiders, former consul for Germany in Sunderland Borough, was convicted to day of high treason and sentenced to death. It was shown during the trial that he is one of the many who have been acting as spies in this country for the German govern ment. He will probably be shot on Tower Hill like Lieuten ant Lody._ A press dispatch to The Empire J from Tenino a few days ap:o reported j the successful recovery of a larpe quantity of oil from a well at Tenino Wash.
