good will to all mankind is with us
again, and once more the SENTINEL
wishes its friends and readers a Merry
This year, when a peace victory
has been won, the anniversary of
the birthday of the Prince of Peace
should bring joy to our hearts akin
to that of the shepherds long ago
in Bethlehem when they knelt at the
bed of Jesus in the manger, and
like the wise men guided by the
star to his humble birthplace, brought
rare and precious gifts as tokens of
great joy. This instituted Christmas,
the day of all holidays we look for/
ward to with the keenest anticipa
tion df pleasure and love the best.
The fund is still growing slowly,
and Eureka Cflunty must not relax
until its quota is contributed. This
is the largest voluntary offering ever
made in the history of the world,
and every State in the Union has
gone over the top.
The Council of Defense pledged
that Eureka County would go over
before the date for final payment,
and their word must be made good.
The Boys and Girls are doing their
share in their Victory organizations,
and there is no doubt but that many
of them will earn and give more than
the amounts they pledged. If you
have given once and find that you
can give more, don’t hesitate to offer
it, for it will be acceptable. It will in
all probability be the last of the giv
ing in this great World’s War, and
it must be given to get the boys back
home in good moral, physical, and
mental condition.
Since the last list of names pub
lished, the following have contri
buted to the fund:. Nona Clayton,
John White, F. A. Fulkerson, Pansy
Ellis, Henry Keefe, Mrs. F. A. Ful
kerson, Richard Jury.

Poincare Acknowledges United States'
Spontaneous Help Given to the
Defenders of
Paris.—President and Mrs. Wilson
made their entry into Paris greeted by
well nigh half the populace, not only
of the city, but of the surrounding dis
tricts. They were attended by Presi
dent Pd|incaire, Premier Clemenceau
and others among the most eminent
figures of Prance. Flowers were drop
ped around their carriage; airplanes
winged overhead; guns sounded. But
observers were impressed with some
thing more than the magnitude and
beauty of the reception by some
quality of warmth that made it dif
ferent from the visits to Paris recently
made by the sovereigns of the allied
The city is ablaze with illuminations;
the boulevards are thronged with
crowds, dancing and singing and throw
ing confetti. The Place de U Con
corde has been turned into a great
dancing pavilion, where American
soideries are favorite partners. Amer
ica is the predominating word here.
xne imagination ana interest of
France has been stirred by the presi
dent of the United States as no other
leader beyond the borders. All classes
and parties have united to pay honor
to the United States through its presi
dent. They greet him as the represen
tative of ideals now dawning upon
“In the eyes of the immense crowds
welcoming him,” says the semiofficial
Temps, “President Wilson represents
two invincible forces—the material
force which permitted the war to be
won, and also the force which will
sanctify peace.”
Thirty-six thousand soldiers, the
flower of the French army, lined the
avenues from the Dauphine gate to
the Murat mansion, which, during their
stay in Paris, will be the home of the
president and his wife. Alpine Chas
seurs and Zouaves, fsesh from the bat
tlefields of Champagne and colonial
troops from whose uniforms the mud
of the Somne had only a few days ago
been removed, occupied the post of
honor. They gently, but firmly, kept
order among the enormous crowds,
which ever pressed forward In eager
ness to have a closer look at tne guests
of France.
Plunges 2000 Feet Into Sea While
Nose-diving at San Diego.
San Diego.—Lieutenant O. G. Ruby,
an army aviator attached to the North
Island aviation school, was drowned
in the Pacific ocean late Saturday
afternoon, when he made a dive from
a height of about 2000 feet and failed
to lift the nose of the plane in time
to enable the plane to regain its flight.
Ruby engaged in aerial gunnery prac
tice, made a d've to shoot at a target
drowned before the body could be ex
tricated from the machine. His home
was in Ogden, Utah, to which city the
body will be shipped.

depart only because he was classed as

stated, and thousands of conservatives

President Insists on Taking Own
Wreath, Contrary to Custom.
Paris.—When President Wilson went
to the tomb of Lafayette he insisted on
taking his own wreath, contrary to the
custom here by which the florist de
livers the wreath and the donor makes
the visit and leaves his card. The
president sent Admiral Grayson to buy
the wreatji and after some difficulty in
explaining to the florist, who could not
understand why the traditional custom
was •eing broken, obtained it and
drove to the tomb.
On his personal- card, President Wil
son wrote this inscription: “In Mem
ory of the Great Lafayette From a Pel
low Servant of Liberty.”
Three Shots Fired at Head of the Re
public; Assailant Immedi
ately Lynched
by Crowd.
London.—Dr. Sidonio Paes, president
of Portugal, was shot and killed by an
assassin shortly before midnight Sat
urday while he was in a railway sta
tion at Lisbon, waiting for a train to
Oporto. Advices from Lisbon report
ing the assassination say that he was
struck by three bullets.
President Paes died within a few
minutes after he was shot.
The president’s assailant, named
Dr. Sidonio Paes was formally pro
claimed president of Portugal on las*
June 9. He headed a revolt in Portu
gal in December, 191?, and was named
president of the provincial governmenl
on December 9, a few days more than
a year before he was assassinated.
Dr. Paes was a professor of mathe
matics in the University of Coinbra
when he entered' the Portuguese cabi
net in 1911 as minister of public
works. At the outbreak of the war
he was Portuguese minister to Ger
many and remained in Berlin until the
early part of 1916, when he returned to
Clash Left to Diplomatic Settlement;
Negotiations Being Entered Into.
New York.—la a clash on November
28 between the armed navy guard of
the American steamship Monterey and
Mexicans customs guards at Tampico,
one Mexican, said to have been cap
tains, was killed, a Mexican soldier
mortally wounded and a chief gunner’s
mate, named Barry, in charge of the
American guard, less seriously hurt.
This was learned Sunday with the
steamer’s arrival here from Havana
and Nassau, where she touched after
leaving Tampico.
Members of the armed guard ana
officers of the ship refused to dis
cuss the incident, but details were
learned from passengers on board at
the time. According to them, the tight
occurred shortly after 5 a. m., after
members of the navy guard went to
the rescue of Berry, who had been at
tacked. The Americans at first re
sponded to the call without arms, but,
upon the Mexicans opening fire, they
secured their weapons and responded
in kind.
Hawaii Escapes Ravages of 'Flu.’
, Honolulu, T. H.—(By Mail)—
Hawaii thus far has entirely escaped
the Spanish influenza, which has been
epidemic over most of the world. Witty
reports of the ravages of the disease
reaching here from both sides of the
Pacific, the states and Japan and Si
beria, every precaution was taken to
keep it out of the islands. A number
of trans-Pacific liners with the influ
enza on board were held in close quar
antine while in port, although a few
critical cases were taken to local hos
pitals and a large number of the crew
of a Japanese liner were treated here
until they recovered.
An epidemic was particularly dread
ed here because of the high mortality it
undoubtedly would hnve caused among
the native Hawaiians, who are pecu
liarly susceptible to influenza and re
lated diseases.
Italy Not Ready to Demobilize.
Rome.—Premier Orlando has told
the senate that Italy was not in a
position to demobilize a single man
and all war material should be kept
intact. The immediate difficulties to
be surmounted, he said, had not dimin
ished, but had Increased.

The authority of the State Tax
Commission to levy a tax on the right
of foreign corporations to do busi
ness in ibhis State, even though such
corporations are engaged in inter
state business, was upheld by the
United States Supreme Court Tues
day in a decision affirming the de
cisions of the State Supreme Court
in the Wells Fargo tax cases. B
The decision involves some $60,000
or $60,000 in taxes levied against the
express company beginning several
years ago. The express company
claimed that the tax was in violation
of the constitution because it
amounted to taking away its prop
erty without due process of law. It
also contended - that the tax acted
in restraint of interstate commerce
and that therefore the State Tax Com
mission was without authority to aft.
The case decided was appealed to
the State Supreme Court from Hum
boldt County with the understand
ing that the ultimate decision should
govern similar suits in all counties in
which the express company is doing

Ely Record, Dec. 18: Mrs. Joseph
Birch and her daughter, Miss Laura
Birch, of Duckwater, returned on
Tuesday from Reno where they were
called by the illness and death of
Manuel Oscoz, a well known young
Bheepman of the Duckwater neigh
borhood who for the past seven years
had made his headquarters at the
Birch ranch. Mr. Oscoz- went to
Reno to visit relatives and was strick
en with influenza from which he died
on December 4th, after a brief ill
ness. He was engaged to Miss Birch
