Nov. 22 A veil has been drawn over the battles between the Russian and Au.stro-Gormun forces. The headquarters of both armies are confining themselves to the briefest statements regarding the hostilities. Unofficial sources show the German advance Mad penetrated farther into Poland than had been disclosed pre viously and Warsaw is threatened again. General von Hindenhiirg's army bap advanced as far as the Lowicz-Skie: -niowice line, indicating the Germans have covered two-thirds of the road to the Polish capital, now forty miles dis tant. Farther south in Poland the al lies are reported to have been repulsed between Radom and Kielce. The battle in East Prussia seemed to have died down, but the Paissians continue to advance in Galicia and are still fighting on the Czenstochowa Cracow front.

How the Uus sian peasants sought to evade the Rus sian government's stringent regula tions forbidding the sale of vodka and other strong alcoholic drinks regula tions adopted to improve public mor ality during war time is told in a dispatch to the London Standard from its Petrograd correspondent. Until recently, he said, vodka might be ob tained in restaurants and cafes of the first class, this being permitted on the theory that the lower classes would not enter such establishments.

Lococo was faint and gasping and he wept as he begged Gray for a little money, the money that Gray owed, a very little money, but enough to stop the cries of his wile and children and save the shelter he had won for them.

JUDGE KING NO "LIGHTWEFGHT" W'lotc Decree l'ion Which Most of Water KMylit Liti gation uf Kiii ire West Jlas lleen iiased Something Ahout 'ase Since l :nx -11. there has been no important decision concerning water rights, water lower or the in termingling of the two,' which has not been based or lined ;.p along side the decision in the case of Hough versus Porter. James P. La vin, a local attorney, who was prac ticing before the supreme court of Oregon, when it handed down said decision, says so. will Rums King wrote that deci sion. l.avin. his attention attracted to a flurry of talk going the rounds of Phoenix, to the effect Judge King, chief counsel of the reclamation ser vice knew little law, less aoout ir rigation and was appointed solely on his political merits, saw fit to call a Republican reporter's attention to the following facts: Hough versus Porter, ulst Oregon reports, page lilS; 98th Pacific re porter, page 10S3 and ugain, 102nd Pacific reporter, page 72S, is the case on which probably more law deci sions are based, than on any other similar case known to western legal annals. In a broad weslcrn sense. it is considerably like the famous Kent decree, upon which every wa ter right in the normal flow of the psiii ana i onto rivers neiow tne Roosevelt dam, is based. When the great impending law suit in the Gila illey is settled, another decree of far reaching import will have been added lo the list. And the Gila de cision, it is said, will be based upon the findings of the Hough-Porter and the Hurley-Abbolt suits. As associate justice of the Oregon supreme court. Judge King handled the Hough-Porter decision. wrote every line of it, and in this way identified himself with everything that is legal and solid in water right fix ing in the west. Perhaps Judge King's courses in the State Agricul tural College of Oregon, his long ex perience in water suits and finally his connection with the famous suit, had something to do with his posi tion at the head of legal affairs in the department clamation scrvii of the interior re e as his letter heads read.' Mr. Lav in. having delivered himself of the foregoing information stated that he thought its dissemination among the opponents of Judge King's legal policii n the reclamation ser vice, would now consider that liow- 1 WEB Li ft ;v . w 'fit w$S&? , lA.- ,X STEAL GOLD PRECIPITATE FROM SCHWAB MINE I.i iS Glarci.: gland $2ii.ii"o ANGKLFS, Loyst wa. arceny for worth of g( Nov. is arrested for of th- theft o ;old precipitat mine at Dab M.

In fact, early in life he was a practical farm er and irrigator, and many's the time he has combattetl those difficulties that make farming in reclaimed lands a joy and a blessing. He has waded the rushing canals and got his feet just as wet. and been kept out of bed to do night irrigating just as long and as often as many of the Salt river valley farmers. Consequently, he is in a position to look at the problems of the farm er from the farmer's viewpoint.
