ROOSEVELT WILL IT HELP TO END WAR Colonel Denies That He Offered His Services to Help in Bring ing About Peace Oyster Bay, N. Y., Sept. 11.—"This country is in a state of profound peace and 1 am confident It will remain that way." This was Colonel Roosevelt's comment on the war situation on his return from his campaigning trip to New Orleans. One of the first matters called to the Colonel's attention was an inter view in which he was quoted as say ing at New Orleans that he believed the time hud come when the nations involved could settle their differences honorably and that he was ready to serve on a commission with that end in view. j, "Such Interviews," asserted the Colonel with vigor, "are absolutely false. The publication of such fakes, it seems to me, is malicious, and 1 think the newspapers are unjust which print them." Colonel Roosevelt went to Progres sive national headquarters after his arrival in New York and one of his lirst visitors there was Oscar S. Straus, who, it lias been reported, has en deavored to bring about some sort of mediation aiming at settlement of the European war. Colonel Roosevelt was asked later if Mr. Straus had talked about the Euro pean situation with him and urged him to aid in an attempt to end the con flict. "There was nothing about Mr. Straus' visit that 1 am at liberty to discuss.'' was his only reply. An interview, In which he was quoted as saying that he would accept the Progressive nomination for Presi dent in lfllti, and that he wanted John M. Parker, of New Orleans, as his running mate, brought forth another denial from Colonel Roosevelt. "I never said any such thing." he asserted. "That is another falsehood. The papers ought not to print such things when they are untrue." The Colonel was enthusiastic over his reception in Louisiana. He said: "The Progressives of Louisiana feel that the Democratic party deliberately broke faith with them and has not kept its promise as regards the tariff or the Panama canal. Everywhere in the South I was struck by the indig nation fell at the failure of Congress to take the steps necessary for their salvation." George W. Perkins, chairman of the national executive committee, had a two weeks' tour of the Middle West mapped out for him, but the Colonel refused to consent to more than a ten-day trip.

DEFEAT OF WILLIAM PREDICTED LONG JEO Weird Story Is Given Space and Credence in Paris Newspaper Sfiecioi to The Telegraph Paris, Sept. 11. The Figaro, which Ih now issuing a small edition nt Bor deaux besides Its usual four pages in I Paris, publishes the translation of an extraordinary Latin prophecy in the leading column of its front page. It is alleged the prophecy was written by a monk, Brother Johannes, in the year 1600. Following are some of the more sig nificant passages: "The real Antichrist will be one of the monarch of his lime, a son of lai ther. He will invoke God, proclaiming himself His envoy. He will have only otic arm. His armies, whb'li will ap pear to bo innumerable, will take for its device the words 'Hod With Us' i motto actually stamped upon Prussian belts.) He will long act by ruse and treachery, and his spies will overrun the earth, but the war will furnish (lie occasion to throw off the mask—-not the war waged against the French mon archy, but another, easily recognized, because in two weeks It will become universal, bringing into battle most distant peoples. Armies will form at tlie four corners of the earth. I "Antichrist will massacre priests, wo | men and children. To the aged he will show no mercy, holding » torch like I barbarians, lint invoking Christ. There I will be an engle in bis arms, also in | those of his acolyte. Another bad mon | arch who. although a Christian, will die through the curse of Pope Bene dlctus. "To conquer Antichrist more men | must he killed than Rome held. It will : require an effort of all kingdoms. This i will happen twenty centuries after the I incarnation of God's word." I The foregoing is contributed bv a | writer signing the name of "Pelndiin." I who, after showing the application of the prophecy to the present war, says this is only the first part of the prophecy. He will give part at a later I date. I The Petit Journal prints another pre diction, which appeared early this year In an almanac of the independent In dian State, Jodhpor, brought to the Journal's notice by a Hindoo named Varma living in Paris, whose two sons have just joined the Foreign Legion. "In the month of July all Europe will be upset by war, setting in conflict the greatest Powers, accompanied by enor mous disaster.

Details of th.e shooting down of a Jesuit priest by the Germans was told an American courier by another priest who witnessed the affair. It appears that the Jesuit had kept a diary in which he had written this comment ary on the sacking of the Louvilin library: "Vandalism worthy of Attila himself." The German officers forced him to read the words aloud, then marked a in chalk on the back of his cassock as a target and sent a dozen bullets into his back. This occurred in the presence of twenty other Louvain priests. Ileal happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.—Hosea Ballou.
