Men at Camps.

Washington, Aug. 7. The ranks of
life new national army were opened
formally today to friendly aliens as
volunteers. A ruling by Provost
Marshal General Crowder, communi
cated to the local selection boards,
directs that all such aliens, waiving
their right of exemption on national
ity be. promptly accepted for service.
General Crowder gent this telegram
tc the governors:
"Reports reaching this office re
cently Indicate that in some quarters
the belief prevails that friendly all
ens, who have not dec -lured their in
tention to become citizens, but are
ready and -willing to serve, are dis
qualified from entering the military
service of the United States, and
therefore, that they must take out
first papers before they can be accept
ed. It is to be regretted that such a
misunderstanding should have aris
en. The qualifications for voluntary
enlistment in time of war are no
more restricted for Berviee in the new
national army than for the regular
army. Such alien nondeclarants are
virtually volunteers. The selective
service act provided for their regis
tration, but it did not regard them as
being under any liability of service
and it therefore gave them full lib
erty to claim exemption when called
by local boards. It should be fully
understood that their service is heart
ily welcomed and they should be ac-
(cpted, whenever upon summons thye
fail to claim their right of exemption.

The alfalfa mill was set in opera
tiona today. This is nearly a month
before the company had planned to
start but there was so much hay on
hand that it was necessary to start
work for fear that a rain might dam
age some of it. There wasn't much
room left on the ground to store al
falfa either, and a place had to be
cleared. The mill was almost ready
for work so that the early start will j
not cause much Inconvenience. ' (
The boys and girls of the town had
planned to have a big dance in the
l large room there and now the plan1
is spoiled, it is probable that there!
will be another street dance m'.xt
Friday night and the proceeds will go
towards the company mess fund.

Nothing But the Nisco

Any old machine that would just carry manure
to the field and dump it on the ground wasn't good
enough for us. When one of our customers
came in and said, I need a manure spreader,
we wanted to point to a machine and say "There,
brother, is the spreader that handles manure
best, pays for itself soon
est and lasts longest.
That machine we can
honestly recommend."

Chicago, Aug. 7. Anti-conscrip-tionist
papers and editors were on
the federal dissection table iu Chica
go yesterday. More than one hun
dred journals, among which the Re
publican, the mayor's organ, was
Kaid to be numbered , were up before
federal authorities for consideration.
Although an officer high up in fed
eral circles, was authority for the
statement that there is no intention
"of interfering with free speech," the
consultation was held, to dote. mine
whether anti-conscriptionist aritcles
were seditious under the act; what
papers had made violations, if any
bad been mr.de; what action should
be taken against the publishers, and
what papers should be suppressed
and what papers should be denied
the mails.
While it could not be determined
whether the Republican was among
the papers considered, it was reported
on his authority that it was being
discussed. It was said that no pro
German utterances, so-called, were
being investigated, the purpose of
the conference being, it was disclos
ed, only to discuss anti-conscription
statements.

enemy trenches on the western front

in order to consolidate the captured
positions. Instead of reinforcing
them, however, the soldiers fired on
the sailors, who, between two fires,
began to retire. Only fifteen of the
men escaped unwounded. The com
mander of the force died as the re
sult of wounds and a sub-lieutenant
and two midshipmen shot themselves
rather than retreat.
