FOREIGN SIIUMII IS AGAIN SERIOUS KVII>K\CK TKMtS TO IMIK' \TK DISKK(i.%HI> l oli I s. HV GERMANY Confronted with an accumulation of circumstantial evidence which would seem to indicate that Germany has engaged upon a campaign of sub marine warfare which has no regard for the rights of American citizens traveling on merchant ships of bellig erent nationalities. President Wilson and his cabinet consider the present one of the most serious situations which has confronted the United States since the beginning of the war la Europe. Every agency open to the state de partment is being employed in an «ffort to gather an unimpeachable array of facts regarding the explosion which damaged the British channel atoamtr Sussex, the sinking of the British ships Manchester Engineer, englishman. Eagle Point and the Dutch steamer Tubantla. and the al leged firing of m torpedo at the French passenger ship Patria. All of these ships carried American citicens, and all apparently were attacked in violation of Germany's recently re newed assurances to the United State*. 1 To Combine All Case*. The next step of the United States ia said authoritatively to have been determined upon. Unless Germany, la reply to the inquiries made by the United States through Ambassador Gerard, makes some statement to cause the state department to change Its present intentions, it is understood that all the recent aggravating inci dents will be combined in one general formidable Indictment which will bring the entire subject to a clear-cut Should Germany admit responsibil ity for any of the attacks and attempt to satisfy the United States by saying that a mistake had been made, offer to make reparation and to punish the ■abmarlne commander, the issue wild not by any means be disposed ] of. It la regarded as certain that the United States will not accept such an explanation as satisfactory, at least ■attl time has shown what punlah ■Ht actually was meted oat to the offending submarine commander, and - whether any value longer could be at tached to Germany's promises. j to Invest igale. Xa the event that Germany dis claims responsibility for the diasters, 1 ttt United States will proceed with its isT«iti|ktloni to determine to tta own satisfaction whether the evi dence, which now strongly indicates that the Sussex and other ships were torpeioid without warning, can be retarded u conclusive proof. mth each proof before it, the gov ernment probably would act prompt ly. Ofltetala retrain from discussing what the nature of the action would v.- The »«y number of apparently unwarranted attacks which have Oc curred recently is regarded by the administration as particularly aig ntfieant. - The number ia said by 018-' dais to haVe diapoaed of the theory that the UKploaions might have been earned by mines. Borne of the cases, ft Waa painted out, have occurred in locatttlee where there ia no poaelbil- Ity off mine telda haying been laid, boeaaae of the depth of the water and the distance from shore. EBNOOBD ALL TBS TMK. WHO? WHY, THS FARMER. (By C. B. Kegley, in Agricultural Orange News.) Congress is working overtime now tiytac to convince the farmer that they really want to pass a rural credit bill that would be of some real benefit to the tolling producers of the Ton wiM recall that when we were making the ilght for parcel pott John Waaamaker, when he waa poatmaster general and in a position to know what he was talking about, said: "There are lost three reasons why we do not at this congress get a parcel post bill, the Adams Express com pany, the Wells Fargo Express com pany, and the American Express com pany." It took twelve years after that to get the farmers wakened up to a realization that if we were ever to have a real and workable parcel post we must get into it. Within two yean from the time the awakening came congress passed the present law. For four years the United States haa been atlrred up over rural cred lta. The states sent commissions of lawyers and bankers abroad to study and report back a workable (?) rural credit plan. Congress sent another like commission abroad for the same purpose. Reports, documents and books enough to All a library in every home have been issued and sent broadcaat all over the country, and yot we aeem to be aa far away from a real workable rural credit bill as when these commissions returned froit: th»- r ph asure trips abroad. \i. i \■!i> Not three reasons, but TW'i < Mg hankers, and lack of farm ers i!it< rivi'tig themselves in this vitally impoitant piece of legislation.

This may be done in Thurston county. The only problem there is the production of cheap proteina ceous foods, but by ordering alfalfa in quantity, direct from Yakima or some other irrigated district,, it can be obtained pretty cheaply, or clover may be grown. However, a cow testing association must be formed or some other means obtained of weed ing out the "boarder cows " I have 28 herds, totaling 450 cows, and last month 128 cows were fed at a loss, but the rest were good enough to bring the average up to a profit of $2.03 per cow per month. Weeding •out the "loss" cows would have brought the profit up to S&SO or bet ter, and last month was the hardest month of the year on cows, with cold rains, snbw, mud and high priced feeds grown on land worth S3OO to S4OO per acre. The price paid for butter fat was 30 Mi cents at the door of the producer. If Thurston county can't do this well I'm very much/mis taken. Thurston Comity Gut, Too. Now, this is a very poor treatment of the subject, but there is BO much to be written one hardly knows what to select. However, I am satisfied that Thurston county can produce po tatoes and butter fat as cheaply as any other county and market them as well. Land Is no higher there than In other similar valleys where farm ers are making money. Many may not believe what I say, but my state ments are facts and can be easily proven to any one interested. And Just one more "wake" over tho corpse of the deceased county agriculturist. I'm almost ashamed to admit any more that Olympla is my home town, because I am usually greeted with some variation of the remark, "Oh, the county that doesn't need an agriculturist." A glance at the annual report of Mr. Patton, the agriculturist expert here, will show what he has done for Walla Walla county, and one need only talk to the farmers of the county to se that they have every confidence in him. I hope to see the system re-adopted in Thurs ton county as soon as possible. LEE C. LEWIS. Fifty pairs of pheasants—Golden, Silver and Chinese —grown at the game farm recently sold H. W. Myers, were released by the county game commission last Saturday. MORE MEN THAN WOMEN HAVE APPENDICITIS Surgeons state men are slightly more subject to appendicitis than women. Olympia people should know that a few doses of simple buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed in Adler-1-ka, often relieve or prevent appendicitis.
