' ESTABLISHMENT OF GOVERNMENT
IN RUSSIA WILL BE DIFFICULT STOCKHOLM, Nov. 2. — If any nation or outside leader attempts to set up a stable government in Rus sia they doubtless will find the mer curial Russians a difficult lot to satisfy. They have plenty of ideas and opinions, but lack action. “The trouble with Russians is that they believe opinions are achievements,” recently said a prominent American who is familiar with Ruslan affairs. This certainly characterizes many of the Russians who are now waiting in Scandinav ia for something to happen in Rus sia. They are criticizing the allies for failure to act more speedily in Russia. Their changeableness is surpris ing. The very leaders who were loudest in denouncing the Brest peace treaty were soon hobnoblng with the Germans. Paul Milyukoff and other leaders of the extreme right who had pretended great IiADIES' AID IS ENTERTAINED The Ladies’ Aid was delightfully entertained Friday afternoon by Mrs. Pauline Mills at her home on Bellevue avenue.

Andrews'-~by-fh.e.-S*ea It is almost as necessary to keep up the morale of the great citizen army at home as it is to keep up the morale of the army of fighters at the front. That is why theaters are open, vhy baseball has its devotees, and why golf is still played. The vtaen who support the Liberty Loans, tCAnd the Victory Loan, also the Red Cross and other great war activities, need exercise and amusement to keep them running at top speed in the great game of business. The golfers of the Uniten States and Canada have given vast sums to the Red Cross; ambulances bearing the names of clubs are in service at home and abroad, and golfers have not only given freely of their money, but hundreds of them have died in friendship for the entente turned to the Germans in an effort to estate lish under their protection a mon* archy which would father the poli cies of the constitutional democrat ic party. When it became evident that the Germans would not enter northern Russia in large numbers and set up an aritstocratic government similar to that of Skoropadsky in the Uk rains, hourgeoiste leaders who had turned from the entente to Ger many, again became friendly toward the entente and less critical of the failure of the English, French and Americans to enter Russia in large numbers and overthrow the exist ing government. Entente success es on the western front and entente support of the Czechs in their phe nomenal campaign against the Bol sheviki further softened the hearts of Russian leaders of the extreme right. ARMISTICE TERMS WILL REQUIRE LIMIT FROM GERMANY WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 2.— Information reaching Washington indicates that the armistice terms will require the Germans to with draw 30 miles beyond the Rhine, leaving behind munitions and roll ing stock; surrender Heligoland, the fleet and submarines. It is believed the terms will be so drastic that some military experts doubt whether the Germans will accept without further fighting. NEVADA MAN FOUND DEAD SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31.—The body of George Shoup, a Nevada mining man, was found in a hotel room today. The attendants said they had detected poison fumes. the armies of Great Britain, Canada, France, and the United States. More than 3,500 golfers in Canada have gone overseas to fight, and more i than 200 of them have made the su preme sacrifice. It may be news to some golfers that in British Columbia a golfer can pursue his favorite sport the whole year around. There are no winter-killed greens in Victoria or Vancouver. The Victoria Golf Club was established in 1893, and its sea side links at Oak Bay constitute one of the finest tests of golf in Canada. In addition to this course, Victoria has the Colwood Golf and Country Club, one of the finest inland golf courses in America and the United Service Club, a varv irond nine-hole TEUTONS PLAYING POLITICS III AUSTRIA AMSTERDAM, Nov. 2. — A Vien na telegram says a resolution will be introduced in the national as sembly banishing Foreign Minister Andrassy from the territory of Ger man-Austria because of his note to President Wilson.

Another case of “flu” came to light in Goldfield this morning, or rather the fact that a patient had almost completely recovered with out the aid of a physician. Aside from this, there were no new devel opments today in the “flu” situation in Goldfield. In the first case the patient is recovering rapidly. NEPHEW OF C. 8. SPRAGUE DIES OFF FRENCH COAST A telegram addressed to Charles S. Sprague was received here this morning announcing the death “off the coast of France” of the son of W. O.

The city of Vancouver is also a golf center with several '■'"K notably the Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club, an eignteen-nule i- . .e well trapped and bunkered. This course is named in honor of Lord Shaughnessy, President of the Can adian Pacific Railway, who is him self an ardent golfer. Other excel lent clubs at Vancouver are the Jeri cho Country Club and the Vancouver Golf and Country Club. There are scores of other splendid golf clubs in Canada, including The Royal Montreal Golf Club, which was established in 1873, fifteen years before the St. Andrews Golf Club, Yonkers, N. Y.t was opened as the first golf club in the United States HEAVY DAMAGE DONE BY BOYS ON EAST SIDE OF TOWN • Depredations by boys were wide spread in Goldfield last night and damage done on the east side of ! town was particularly heavy. Dam ! age was done on Wednesday night, but the activity reached its height last night, the boys persisting in | their work of destruction despite shots fired at them and the screams of women who were alone in houses and who attempted to save their property. While the destruction on Wed ' nesday night served as a warning to people in some districts, the activity last night found most residents un prepared and the boys worked rap idly and thoroughly, reports from different districts being to the ef fect that the damage reached un precedented proportions. Coming at a time when the aver age Goldfielder can make his dol lars count in many ways other than the repair of his property, wantonly destroyed, it is the general opinion, widely expressed today, that the acts of the hoys last night are to be regretted. As the boys were not seriously hindered in their raids last night, they may continue them tonight, unless there is more than one officer to police the town. But, now that the damage already , done will serve as a warning to (property holders who have not yet i suffered, there is no question but that the temper of the people is ' such that they will vigorously de ! fend their property tonight and be better prepared to do so than last i night. While injury to a boy would | be regretable, there is little doubt | that property holders on the east ' side, aroused as they are by the acts of last night, will defend them selves to the limit if in the face of the destruction already caused by them, the boys persist in making raids tonight. Whoever may or may not be indi rectly responsible for what occurred last night, it is the general opinion that blame for the entire matter can be placed squarely on the shoul ders of the boys’ parents, who, It Is reasonable to suppose, knew they were turning their children loose on the two particular nights in the year when they were liable to do damage. At least the ringleader of the most destructive gang was iden tified last night and his actions were such, according to reports from persons who witnessed them, that could his parents have been present, they would have been far from proud of him. GERMANS WARNED TO WATCH O.S, MEN CEOSEEY — WITH THE AMERICAN FORCES IN FRANCE, Nov. 2. — Orders cau tioning German soldiers to be on the alert in an endeavor to avoid surprise attacks by the Americans issued by German commanders were found by the Americans during the German retreat from the St. Mihiel salient. One document said: “The Ameri j cans who are opposite us are to be taken seriously in small enterprises, j The greatest vigilance is recom mended at dawn and during the cool hours of the morning. Surprise attacks are ordinarily launched at that hojjr. Sentinels whose strength and nerves have been worn out dur ing the night relapse and become undependable. “In view of our recent experi ences it is especially important to watch our troops at this moment of ! the day. In front of us we find j the - American division, troops young, inexperienced and just land ed.” STEEL FREIGHTERS TO BE USED TO RETURN TROOPS WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 31. — The shipping board has cancelled contracts for the construction of $60,000,000 worth of troop ships at the Bethlehem yards at Alameda, Cal., because of perfected plans to convert steel freighters into trans ports. This made unnecessary the construction of ships designed es pecially to bring the American troops home. PAN-AMERICAN LABOR MEETING TO BE HEED IN LAREDO, TEX. LAREDO. Tex., Nov. 2. — This border city is hard at work complet ing arrangements (or the care of 2000 delegates and guests who are expected to attend the pan-Ameri can labor conference here Nov. 13, 14 and 15, which will have as its chief purpose the unification of all organized workers on the western hemisphere. “The immediate object of the conference is to bring about a com plete affiliation of organized labor of Mexico, Central America and South America with the United States, the same as now is in effect with Canada and some of the coun tries of Europe,” said Herman Ross, special representative of the Ameri can Federation of Labor, who has been here arranging for the confer ence. “The results will be so far reaching that it is safe to say no labor conference of equal magnitude has ever been held.” SCOTCH LEARN TO LIKE JAZZ MUSIC LONDON, Nov. 2. — American Bailors stationed in Scotch ports are introducing ragtime dances in Scot land and jazz bands are displacing the bag pipe at many Bocial gather ings there, according to Y. M. C. A. secretaries on duty with the Ameri can naval forces. At one naval base the sailors, aid ed by Y.* M. C. A. men have re quisitioned a hall in which they are dancing with the Scotch girls to American airs played by naval bands. These opportunities are leading to weddings of American sailors to Scotch girls. At one place the sail ors and Scotch lassies were organ ized by an American actor into a company which has produced an American revue in the Y. M. C. A. huts. BERtiFBiiius VICTIM BF FRAUD NEW YORK, Nov. 2. — The Prussian state bank in Berlin has been the victim of a singular fraud, say German newspapers. A foreign commercial house transmitted to the bank the sum of 000,000 marks to be credited to the account of a foreign bank. The letter referring to the .transaction was intercepted and a forged letter was substituted in which (he bank was directed to deposit the sum to the credit of a Berlin metal firm.

It was then discovered that the metal firm was not in existence.

RUSSIANS FACE LONG WINTER WITH IITTLE COAL OR WOOD LONDON, Oct. 31. — Russia is facing a winter of hunger and cold augmented this year because of the extreme scarcity of fuel which pre vails in all parts of that country. The lack of coal has been keenly felt ever since the loss of the Do netz basin to the Germans early last spring. It affected the railroads and caused factories to be shut down. The Czecho-Slovak operations in Siberia and in the Ural region have prevented any relief from that di rection. The stores of wood in Moscow and Petrograd, owing to the lack of transportation facilities and oth er difficulties too numerous to mention, are far from sufficient to meet the demands of along winter. I.*tin-Amerlcan labor unions an nounced that they are preparing to send many delegates. President Wilson and President Carranza of Mexico have been invited and Presi dent Carranza has telegraphed his acceptance. The executive council of the American Federation of La bor, including President Samuel Gompers and Secretary Frank B. Morrison, will attend the confer ence, as will also officials of the Mexican Federation of Labor and governors of many states of the Un ion and governors of Mexican states. Mr. Boss said American workers want such an affiliation that when a workman visits any other Ameri can country his union card will be accepted the same as in his state. An executive meeting of the American Federation of Labor will be held in connection with the con ference and importation of labor from Mexico will be discussed. STRICT HEALTH RULES TO GUARD GOLDEIELD SCHOOLS ANI) CHURt'HKH CLOK KD AND SALOONS MADK CHA1RLKSS Over 50 eases of influenza have developed In Tonopah and four deaths oecurred yesterday, accord ing to this morning’s Tonopah Times. The Klks’ hall has been converted into a hospital with 20 beds and the Knights of Columbus hall, with space for 75 beds, has been placed at the disposal of phy sicians. Dr. C. J. Richards, county health officer, states that a large percent age of the cases reported are among Indians and Mexicans and that influenza is gaining rapidly among the Mexicans, who take no precautions against contracting the disease. “Flu” is spreading rap idly at Mina. There are no cases in Goldfield. Influenza in Reno and other places in the northern part of the state is decreasing rapidly. Only four new cases were reported in Reno yesterday, a decline of three from the previous day. Dr. McCarthy, county physician, has directed that chairs and tables be removed from all saloons and card games prohibited and that con gregating there ore elsewhere must be strictly prohibited by owners and the peace officers of the city and county. The Elks had already taken ac tion along that line. Dr. McCarthy is very insistent that all cases of influenza be report ed promptly to him, as required by the health regulations of the state, and unless this be done the control of the epidemic will be more diffi cult and the needless sacrifice of life may follow. The schools and churches have also been ordered closed and it is highly desirable that every person constitute himself or herself a guard, if not an officer, to see that the regulations prescribed by the law and the authorities are strictly observed and enforced. TO 1‘KKVKNT “FLU" One drain carbolic acid, 3 ounces glycerine; add two tablespoonsful i honey. Use as a gargle. I I I I I l A Moscow paper estimated some months ago that the supplies of wood in that city would hardly suf fice to satisfy the needs of public utilities this winter, and that in consequence all private enterprises and homes could not hope to get even a limited quantity of it. To one who has experienced the discomforts of a cold Russian win ter, even under better conditions, the situation is far from alluring. The chilly atmosphere of an un heated apartment, darkness in the streets and homes, the quiet of a city undisturbed by the rumble of street cars and motor vehicles, and, lastly, the uncomfortable feeling of an empty stomach, such are the prospects of the coming winter in Russia.
