votes. There are two saloons in the
Freeborn county, where it was pre

carried by the drys by 857 votes. Al
bert Lea, which has thirteen saloons,
went wet, 867 to 677, but the vote
against saloons in other parts of the
county easily overcame this lead of
the wets. The only saloons are at
Albert Lea, which also has a brewery
branch and three wholesale liquor
Goodhue county went wet by about
200 votes. Red Wing voted to keep
its twenty saloons and two breweries

three at Goodhue, one at Frontenac

Germany Reiterates Position In
MAKES PROPOSAL TO IL S.
Will Permit Adding Reasonable Num
ber of Neutral Vessels to Fleet
Flying Stars and 8t ripes.
Berlin, July 11.—Germany's tatest
offer, embodied in the reply to the
United States note % regarding the
sinking of the Lusitania and subm»
marine warfare, is as follows:
First—Reiterated assurance that
American ships engaged in legitimate
trade will not be interfered with nor
the lives of Americans upon neutral
ships be endangered.
Second—The German submarines
will be instructed to allow American
passenger ships to pass freely and
safely, Germany entertaining in re
turn the confident hope that the
American government will see that
these ships do not carry contraband;
such ships to be provided with dis
tinguishing marks and their arrival
announced a reasonable time in ad
vance. The same privilege is extend
ed to a reasonable number of neutral
passenger ships under the American
flag, and should the number of ships
thus available for passenger service
prove inadequate, Germany is willing
to permit America to place four hos
tile passenger steamers under the
American flag to ply between North
America and Europe under the same
Germany declares that England's
closing of the North sea, her procla
mation of a starvation blockade and
her general disregard of international
rules of warfare are alone responsible
for submarine warfare. The note rec
ognizes that this blockade imperils
neutrals, but in this connection the
declaration is made that Germany's
"sacred duty" is to protect her own
German Position on Lusitania.
The German position on the Lusi
tania, set forth as follows, is deemed
"The case of the Lusitania shows
with horrible clearness to what jeop
ardizing of human lives the manner
of conducting war employed by our
adversaries leads. In the most direct
contradiction of international law, all
distinctions between merchantmen
and war vessels have been obliterated
by the order to British merchantmen
to arm themselves and to ram sub
marines and the promise of rewards
therefor, and neutrals who use mer
chantmen as travelers thereby have
been exposed In an increasing degree
to all the dangers of war.
"If the commander of the German
submarine which destroyed the Lusi
tania had caused th£ crew and pas
sengers to take to the boats before
firing a torpedo this would have meant
the sure destruction of his own ves
sel. After the experiences in sinking
much smaller and less seaworthy ves
sels it was to be expected that a
mighty ship like the Lusitania would
remain above water long enough,
even after the torpedoing, to permit
passengers to enter the ship's boats.
"Circumstances of a very peculiar
kind, especially the presence on board
of large quantities of highly explosive
material, dissipated that expectation.
In addition it may be pointed out that
if the Lusitania had been spared
thousands of cases of munitions would
have been sent to Germany's' ene
mies and thereby thousands of Ger
man mothers and children wouldl
have been robbed of bread winners."
TO UPHOLD DIGNITY
Cornish, N. H., July 13.—President
Wilson received from the state depart
ment the official text of the latest
German note on the submarine war
fare and immediately began consid
eration of his reply.
He instructed Secretary Lansing to
prepare a memorandum on the diplo
matic problems involved and will not
send a rejoinder until he has confer
red with the secretary of state.
It became known after the president
had read the note that he does not
look upon the situation as critical,
but that at the same time he is not
inclined to underestimate the possi
bilities of the problem presented to
him and is determined firmly to up
hold the dignity of the United States.
That the president will continue
his German policy along the ilnes al
ready mapped out in the previous
notes is generally accepted here.
It is understood that there is no
immediate prospect of a diplomatic
break with Germany and that whether
there is any future break will largely
depend upon Germany.
It was said here that there is no
present plan for Mr. Lansing to come
to Cornish to confer with the presi
dent and that the president will not
hurry back to Washington.

MONTANA'S J915_W00L CROP
Average Price This Year Is 25 Cents
Per Pound. '
Montana's wool crop for 1915 will
seach 35,000,000 pounds, according to
experts who are in a position to know.
Of this amount two-thirds has been
sold. There are now forty buyers in
the state and the remaining third will
be purchased without delay. The av
erage price this year is 25 cents per
pound, as against the average price
of 14 cents per pound last year.
It was thought at the opening of the
season that the price for wool would
reach 30 cents. However 28% cents
per pound was the highest price paid
and that was for a small clip. Only
5 per cent of the wool product brought
26 cents per pound, it is stated. In
former years 18 cents was a good
price for the wool.
TOURISTS ROBBED IN
Lone Bandit Holds Up Twelve

man did the work.
The leading stage of the party was
stopped and the passengers were or
dered to line up and throw their
money into a sack.
As the third coach was being
robbed a Mr. Rice, a New York man,
sprang from the vehicle and started
back to tell the rest of his party to
conceal their valuables. The robber

Summer White House.
Cornish, N. H., July 14. —President
