Lassen On Its Anniversary
Celebrates With Eruption

REDDING. Mav 80. Mount Lassen
Fignalized its first anniversary as an
active volcano with a viole-nt eruption
late today, the first time since tbe de-t-triutive
outbreak on May 22. This
was of iess magnitude and not as spec
tacular. A smoke column appeareel heavy la
ilen with ashes and spread fanlike but
not to a great height. Fears are ex
pressed here that loss of life occurred
as many investigators we&re in the
danger zone and on the peak itself. The
White Star liner Megantie, with a
large number of passengers from
Liverpool to Montreal, was chased
by a submarine ol f the south coast
of ii eland this morning but man
aged to escape. Considerable
alarm wa.i caused here early today
when a S. O. S. call was received
reporting that a submarine haei
been sighted. A se-cond message
followed soon stating the boat had
outdistanced the submarine and
that the ship was then sixty miles
southeast of Cork harbor. In a
third nic; sat;c. the captain reported
he had evaded the submarine, that
the ship was well to the westward
and was proceeding on its voyage
with all aboard well.

LONDON, May 30. Around the
fortress of Pre-.emysl a mighty bat
tle is still raging. The Austro
Ucrman armies are making a sup
reme effort to cut off the stronghold
and free these armies for opera -tions
against Italy and the allies
in the west. Although great saf
rifices in the west. Although graet-r
sacrifices are being made. The prog
ress latterly has been extremely slow
as the Russians have had time to
bring large reinforcements . of men
and artillery.
North of the fortress the Russians
appear to be more than holding
their own, but to the southeast the
Austrians and Hermans claim to
have made headway and are now in
command with artillery and the rail
way b.-twe-cn Przcmysl and Lemberg.
From the latter town the Russians
draw a large portion of their rein
forcements and supplies. The battle
is still undecided, but hopes run higl:
in the allied camps that the Russians
will be able to hold the lines until
the advance of the Italians, and the
strengthening of the Anglo-French
army compels the Germans to with
draw a part of their armies in
In the west there is considerable
fighting along the yser canal where
the French report the occupation of
the German trenches and in the vic

French have made an advance of

holding its fin i! decision on the de-
nii'.rala advanced by the I'nited States
I in connection with the sinking of the
I.usitnnia until the receipt ot an an
swer fr.mi the T'niled State. to the
note which Herr Von Jagow. foreign
minister, has delivered to Ambassador
Gerard, in reply te the American note
received by the German government on
May la.
In reply the German government de
clares t is not its intention to submit
neutral ships in the war zone, which
are guilty of no lvisiile acts, to an at
tack by submarines or aeroplanes. It
also states that it is investigating the
circumstances in connection with the
attacks on the American steamers
Gushing and Culflight and that in all
cases whore neutral vessels through no
fault of their own, have been damaged.
Germany will pay .'in indemnification.
The reply urges that in the ease of
the I.nsitania, Germany was justified
".s a self-defense in seeking with all the
means of warfare at its disposition to
protect the lives of its soldier by de
stroying ammuniTTon intended for the
enemy. The German government re
calls the proposals submitted by the
I'nited States to I'erlin and Itndon,
designed V"- end submarine warfaie by
shutting out food suppli'-w from Ger
many which it declares failed in their
purpose because of the refusal of the
Rritish government to agree to them.
Following is the text of the Ger
man note:
"The imperial German government
has subjected the communieat iem e;f
the American government to a thor
ough investigation. It entertains
also a keen wish to cooperate in a
frank and friendly way in clearing
up any possible misunderstanding
which may have arisen in relations

informed that Germany's government

guilty of no hostile acts to attacks

ators. On the contrary, the German

ted to most specifically avoid at
tacks on such ships.
"If neutral ships in recent months
have suffered through German sub
marine warfare, owing to mistakes
in identification, it is a question only
of quite isolated and exceptional
abuse of flags together with sus
picious or culpable behavior of the
masters of the ships."

the state fair mile track, the "local
lodge, No. THS. wisely enough chose
i;i distance which has never heen con
tested on such a course, so that what
ever time is made this afternoon will
automatically become a world record,
and that is the secret of the intense
livalry that has been established
among thes.- lour leading manufac
turers. Always strong supporters of
racing, the Indian factory has sent
three- machines here for one foreign
and two local cracks, uhile the- local
agency has entered a fourth man.
The" F.xeelsior makers, who always
compete rtrongly in such events, have
sent their very best rid.-r. Rob 1'e-rry.

competition Was Joe Wolte-rs. the

fae-tories to send down their men.
Two Merkels are entered by the
local agency, and both are- being rid

Final Preparations
Following yesterday's elimination
trials, which weren't because every
entry qualified, all the ten speedsters
were placed under guard in their
several homes, while expe rt me-e hanie-s
attended to the final tuning. Py the
time this re-aches its readers .every
piece of mechanism will have bee-n
adj .-steel as human ingenuity can make
it, and every one of the- ten meetors
will be ready to revolve in a rapid
and inspiring manner, tee bear te-n
veiling men two hundred times around
the mile oval.
Last night, Manager L. Coido called
the riders together with Referee
John Hold anil other officials of the
rue for a conference, at which final
instriutions were issue-el, and all plans
discussed. It was decide-d to per
mit the ricle-rs to take- em supplie-s
of fuel at any point on the track,
and te make repairs emtside the
pits. in case s.te-h work c:in be
handled in such a manner as not

called till the pitman together, to
elaborate upon . the highly detailed
instructions that will be necessary
to observe so closely tAday. Safety
First is the slogan of the race -printeel
on the offie-ials' badges, and
ingrained in the minds of all the
workers. It was to further this idea
that the special instructions were
given to the pitmen. In the hands of
these, silent partners lies the success
of every race-r in a long grind, and in
this event, at least, so will the safety
of the riders rest in a good measure
with the-ir aiels.

Spirit oi Hroal Patriotism
That Marked Years of
Reconstruction Needed to
Successfully Ward Off
Present-da v Dangers
Reverent memories of the men
who laid down their lives in the;
great struggle in the sixties, and
lessons from that war out ejf which
came a united nation marked the
annual Memorial day service yester
day at the Central M. E. church.
Almost 100 members of the G. A. R.,
I'nited Confederate Veterans, Span
ish War Veterans and the Woman's
Re-lief Corps attended the se-rvice-,
and listened to the address by Rev.
W. J. Sims, himself the son of a
Confedi rate- ve teran.
Taking as his text the? message of
David to the men who recovered
and gave fitting burial to the body
eif Saul, the pastor drew many les
sons from the words, "And now the
Lord show loving kindness and truth
unto you, and I will also requite you
this kindness, because you have done
this thing." David, he pejinteel out,
had consistently shown the spirit of
a true man, refusing time and again
to injure Saul when he had him in
his power, and at the time when he
learned of his death, instead of re
joicing over the downfall of his ene
my, blessed those who had performed
the rites of burial. So it was in the
years that have elapsed since the
Civil war, for the wounds that once
rent th nation were healed by the.
spirit of those who had, for four
weary years, faced each other on
many a battlefield. Just as nature
hail been epiick to repair and cover
ov.r the ravages of war, so had the
true American spirit removed all
traces of the bitterness that once
The day, the pa-stor said, was not
one for mourning, but for memory.
The men who had sacrificed their
lives for the cause they believed right
were not to be mourned, for were
not their bodies sleeping in the soil
they loved more than life? Rather
were their deeds, their devotion to
be remembered, with that pride
which every patriotic American must
feel, anil their example in the hour
if danger to be emulated. Ameri
cans, loving their country with the
greatest love of any people, had
shown themselves men in the past,
when that country was threatened.
The greatest dangers to America,
as in th past, saie' the speaker, lurk
ed within, not from some foreign feie.

thoughtless of the needs or rights or
others, was essentially un-American.
Indolence, of the sort that leads to
the denunciation of all government,
and rebellion against authority, the
indolence of the man who will not
work, was a growing danger, aiming
directly at the foundations of the
republic. Extravagance, which at
times seemed to be running away
with the American people, was an
other potent soutce of danger, while
ignorance constantly threatened to
overthrow- the bulwarks of the con
stitution. All of these, said Dr. Sims,
are to be guarded against, to be re
sisted and to be stamped out if this
nation is to endure. The struggle
against them is one which calls for
the very qualities shown by the men
whom the nation is honoring today

singing of "Tenting on the Old Camp
