RHEA REQUIRES RAILROAD TO MAKE CONNECTION CfeMtp??ke Ohio Moat Ran Morn las Trala to Union Station, Charlottesville. As result of eteps taken by Judge William F. Rhea, of the State Corpor ation Commission, train No. 19, which leaves Richmond at 8:10 In the mom Inr and reaches Charlottesville at 12:35, has been run from the Chesapeake and Ohio Station there to the Union Sta tion to allow passengers time to make connection with the Southern's N'o. 43, running towards Lynchburg. For some time the train stopped at the C. & O lower station, and passengers were forced to transfer themselves and their luggage across the town to tho Union Station. Judge Rhea took this matter tip with Region Director M. D. Maher, former president of the Norfolk and Western, and had It remedied. At present this Is th* earliest train leaving Richmond on the Chesapeake and Ohio Hallway for Charlottesville and the West on the main line, and Richmond papers reaching Charlottes ville after noon are old,'the Washing ton and Baltimore dailies having been on the streets for hours. There is no service beyond Charlottesville tint 1 late In the evening. There Is no train leaving Richmond for Old Point, Nor folk and the busy Hampton Roads sec tion from 4 o'clock in the afternoon till 9 o'clock the next morning. This has the snme disastrous effect on the.

No I^ejis Accomplishment of Territorial and Kucial Unity. PRESENT WAIl A HOLY CAUSE fllgnor Orlando Tells of Aspirations of Ills People?Itecognl/CM Splen did Results Achieved at Council of Versailles?Is Optimistic. BY SIG.NOIt OltljANDO. ROME, August 12.?Our conception of the present situation may be summed up as follows, namely, that our per severance with unsliiikon firmness in this gigantic struggle does not depend on any possible choice, hut on Impera tive necessity as revealed no less by the deep, conscious sentiment of na- i tlonal Ideals than by the dee;? and Ar- 1 resistible dictates of the instinct of preservation, which peoples as well as individuals obey. This manner of view ing the particular situation of Italy' found general agreement in the in quiry made during the last period of the laborious and fruitful discussions between the great nations fighting against the central etnpireu, and the conclusion was not different from It. While, indeed, the question of peace was apparently being raised for the first timo at Brest-Litovsk by means of concrete and direct negotiations, the Statesmen of the entente have already declared separately their Ideas and in tentions on the subject of war aims and the means of ending the war. This very divergence of views in which the statesmen of the various nations and In very different situations -examined the problem of war alms had the bo- j neficlent effect that all honest possl- ; blllties of a Just peace were offered to i the enemy's consideration. We have heard moderate proposals expressed In such measured terms that one of them waa even able to rouse in Italy a feel ing of anxiety regarding our Just ex pectations and to engender doubta which, I am glad to be able to state most formally and definitely, wero definitely, cordially, and entirely dissi pated. Rnemy'i Real Peace Aim*. If, then, the desire for peace which has been displayed several times by the enemy governments had been realy determined by sincere and loyal in tentions, it would have found the most ample and most favorable field for Its expression. On the contrary, nothing was affirmed but the most obstinate, the most irreconcilable determination to carry out the plan previously formed of imperialistic domination. As re gards Italy, those reasons of legitimate and absolute necessity which are af firmed In our war aims still exist Just as they were at the moment when de liberately and of our own free will we undertook our gigantic task. Now, as then. Italy wishes for no more war, but that does not mean that she de sires any less the accomplishment of her national unity and the security of her land and sea frontiers. Only the full realization of one and the other will i-ssure to Italy her existence as a really free and Independent state. ICngnged In a Holy Caiur, Our war aim is a holy one if any ever was. It Is a question of whetner Italy is to exist or not. We Italians still have bitter memories of what we, ourselves have suffered and of what I our brothers are still suffering and we flo not confine ourselves merely to fol lowing with verbal and platonic sym i pathy the effort of orpressed nation alities which arc aspiring to freedom. Tor three years, with unheard of sacri fices and by the blood of thousands and thousands of our brothers and children, we have been carrying on a war not only for the defense of our rights and our existence, but also a war against a common enemy. The entente cannot now consider the events which are taking place In the northeastern part of Europe except as a de facto situation, which will have no connection with right or any legal For General Information Franco, May 27, 1918.; The Kolynos Co., Hew Haven, Conn. Dear Sirs: This is a line from a convinced soldier,; your days without water left us pretty thick in the mouth* I tried four oleanings in quick turn with another tooth paste, but I could not ?lean up. About half an hour later I located a tube of Kolynos in ay bag and one trial did the trick. This is in no way an advertisement, but the feet that I was employed as an engineer in New Haven before coming to France to see this argument thru, oombined with the fact .that I was assistant engineer at the Holyoke Valve & Hydrant Company vtoen they installed your heating system, made me feel as tho an old friend had come to my rescue, I am requesting a few of your English French-German phrase books.

In fact, complete account had already been taken at Versailles of tho events which havo occurred. It wan "considered to bo right and pru dent to tako Into account tho worst hypothesis, namely, that henceforth the western front must rely upon Itself and prepare to sustain entirely the whole effort of tho war. The military situation was therefore submitted on this ground to detailed and complete analysis, with the assistance of dis tinguished experts, ?nd even of some of the chiefs of tho armies In the field.

Tou will readily unders*and that It Is not a question about which one can give detailed Information. hut. with all the senso of responsibility which I know how to adopt In speaking before Parliament on such grave subjects, I affirm that the result of these investi gations regarding- tho military situ ation of the ei tcnto was such as to afford the fullest confidcnce which hu man foresight ci n allow, while on the other hand we can. and ought, to con soler that the present situation must continually and greatly Improve. If only through the increase, henceforth daily and constant, of the admirable assistance of the military forces of tho great American republic. The agree ments reached at Versailles empha sized in the happiest manner the nec essity of a close cohesion of all the forces of which we dispose on the western front, henceforth really united, together with tho freedom and respon sibility of the command on each front A like sentimer. t of cordial solidarity culded the allies in their examination </f questions regarding the economic situation of the world, which has been vr? disturbed by the gigantic phenome non of a war without precedent, caus ing most arduous dlltlcull'irs for all and l-nposing on all greater sacrifices. Nevertheless, In London, as well as In Paris, and at Washington. It was rec ognized that Italy was In the greatest need for provisions. As regards corn, arrangements were made by our allies to supply Italy, an act of which we value and appreciate the fraternal soli darity. We are confident that we shall obtain an equally satisfactory solution as regards otlher provisioning, which is still being discussed.
