Simons Gives Reasons By United Press BERLIN, Sept. 2. Foreign Minister Simons said that no power warring upon the Soviets "need count upon our support. We recognize that the Soviets hold the reins of power in Russia and thus form a defacto government." lie declared that any attempt to co-operate with France or Poland against Russia would immediately plunge Germany in to internal warfare. Likewise any at tempt to co-operate with Russia would make Germany a battleground. Russian Menace Removed By United Press WARSAW, Sept. 2 If the Polish claim of annihilation of Budeny's army is borne out it apparently removes the greatest Russian menace on the Polish front. Even at the time all other Bol shevik forces were retreating this fam ous cavalry leader held his lines in Gal licia and only recently began a drive to encircle Lemberg from the north, which the Poles admitted was progressing to their disadvantage.

Offi cials estimated that 70,000 miners are idle today as the result of the strike in the anthracite coal fields. Insurgent leaders, dissatisfied with the award of the president's anthracite commission, called the strike. Forty five collieries are closed. Before printing the above the Appeal p r r . . wanted to make sure 01 a tew iacts about the Hot Springs, and the first fact discovered was that there is not a pamphlet of any sort about this place either at the Touring bureau, at the camp ground, at any of the garages, or even in the possession of any Carson individual save one. who was good enough to lend us his only copy of Good Roads. It seems as if there could be no bet ter place to advertise than at the camp grounds, where dusty travelers would doubtless put the delight of a refresh ing swim in soothing hot water only J second to the food, drink and sleep act- ually essential to life. An analysis of the water there made by the Nevada State University shows the following content : Total solids 346.0 Silicia - 43.0 Iron and alumina 3 Calcium 11.0 Magnesium 1.7 1 Bicarbonates 34.0 Sulphates 97.0 Chlorine - 2S.0 Nitrates 0.0 Hypothetical Form of Combination Sodium chloride 46.0 Calcium sulphate 37.0 Sodium sulphate 54.0 Sodium carbonate . .. 51.0 Sodium bicarbonate 101.0 Magnesium bicarbonate '. 10.0 Silicia -, 43.0 Iron and alumina 3 00 PRINTERS IN CALIFORNIA STATE OFFICE ON STRIKE Bv United Press SACRAMENTO, Sept. 2.

A FAR-FBTCHED ANALOGY IBv United Press MARION, Ohio, Sept. 2. Senator Harding addressing the Chicago Cubs' baseball players from his front porch today, drew an analogy between gov ernment and baseball, declaring, "You can't win a game with a one man team." Harding scored the Wilson adminis- affected made no protest. Washoe county land valuations were given a raise amounting to $198,487, in spite of the strong protest made by As sessor John Hayes. The Washoe coun ty increase is to be distributed to a'l classes of cultivated lands. The decreases recommended and adopted were $179,290 in the total valu ation of the lands in Lyon county, and $126,381 for Douglas county lands. Interests represented by W. F. Dress ier were granted reductions amounting to $29,582 on land and $2,500 on farm machinery. Assessor Lothrop of Lyon county gave his approval to the de creases and stated his reasons. Several applications for reductions in assessments on small tracts of lands were considered by the committee and the reductions made as recommended. The committee's recommendation that Jay H. demons be asked to appear to give information bearing upon his re quest for a change in classification and reduction from $26 to $15 per acre on 14.569 acres of land in Lyon county was received and Secretary Fletcher was directed to notify Mr. demons to ap pear Friday. The committee recom mended denial of Mr. demon's appli cation for a decrease from $7.50 to $6.93 per acre on 19,136 acres of Hum boldt county land.

The livestock committee made a pre liminary report yesterday. No changes in this year's assessments on livestock were made. It was stated that the 'committee is not yet prepared to make 'recommendations on valuations for next year. In the matter of the Adams-McGill and Swallow assessments in White Pine county recommendations by the land committee brought forth protests from Assessor J. F. Miles. After the report had been read and discussion was declared in order Mr. Miles took the rlior and in unmistak able terms charged members of the land committee with having, at a hearing, sought to disturb him and confuse him when he was attempting to explain the Adams-McGill and Swallow assess ments. He declared that the committee had practically refused to accept his as sessment rolls as evidence and that the attitude assumed by the inemlters of tration, declaring it muffed disap- Sodium and potassium 84.0 pointingly in our domestic affairs and Carbonates 30.0 then struck out at Paris. Will Meet Tonight The monthly meeting of St. Theresa's Altar Society will be held this evening in the sodality hall. For the social hur, the Misses Belli will be the host-sses. the committee indicated that they be lieved that all that was necessary was io comply wiili the wishes of the Adams McGill company. Mr. Miles told the board that the classification objected to by Mr. Swal low when he appeared before the com mittee had been sworn to, with hand upraised, by Mr. Swallow. He was positive in his assertion that the Adams-McGill company evaded giving a sworn statement. The assessor ex plained that the Adams-McGill land classification for 1920 is practically the same as that submitted for the year 1919. He declared that he has in past years run mowing machines over and cut hay on hundreds of acres of the Adams-McGill lands now put in classes lower than should be the case. He as serted that it was necessary for him to follow the old classification because of inability to get necessary information from the company until a late day. Mr. Miles informed his colleagues that the Adams-McGill and Swallow lands arc not assessed higher than oth er lands in White Pine county, and said that if the committee's recommendation were followed he would expect like treatment for all lands in the county. The land committee, composed of Shober J. Rogers, chairman, and Asses sors Morton of Churchill, Weathers of Elko, Nielsen of Douglas, Jurgenson of Pershing and Lothrop of Lyon county, recommended that the Adams-McGill land assessment valuation be reduced from the 1920 total of $306,000 to 120 per cent of the 1919 valuation of $201, 000, a total of $241,200. The same ac tion was recommended by the commit tee in case of the Swallow land. Secretary Fletcher was directed to telegraph Messrs. McGill and Swallow in an effort to ascertain if they wish to appear before the board. Motions to defer action in the two cases until fur ther information can be obtained were made by Mr. Myles.
