TRANS - MOUNTAIN ELECTRIC TRAVEL THE DREAM OF YEARS REALIZED Prophecy has been crystallized into fact —the future has become today the age of electric railroading is here. Giant electric locomotives whose only fuel is the limitless power generated by mountain cataracts haul the heavy steel trains of the “Milwaukee Road” across the great mountain ranges of the Northwest. Through the Belt, Rocky, and Bitter Root Mountains---for 440 miles elec ricity has superseded steam as m otive power —and soon the puffing steam lo comotive will yield its place to the elec tric giant in the Cascade Mountains in Washington, as the work of electrify ing the 211 miles through this range is well under way. When you travel to Butte, Spokane, Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and other Pacific Northwest Cities enjoy a smokeless, cinderless, noiseless trip through the mountains over the modern electric way—the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway. For literature giving complete in formation regarding this wonderful achievement apply to Local Agent of this railway.

Linoman is me oweuiou loreign minister whose office is so badly in volved by the disclosures of Secretary Lansing of violations of neutrality in Argentina and Mexico in behalf of Germany. KAISER REGRETS ENVOY’S ACTIONS IN ARGENTINE Berlin's Assurances Not Acceptable to Government at Buenos Aires— Ousted Diplomat to Leave. Buenos Aires, Sept. IS. —Dr. Lius B. Molina, the Argentine minister at Ber lin, informed the Argentine foreign office by cable that the German gov ernment had expressed regret over the actions of Count von Luxburg, the German minister to Argentina. Doctor Molina reported that Baron von dem Bussche-Haddenhausen, undersecre tary of the German foreign office, had informed him that Germany disap proved absolutely of expressions used by Count von Luxburg in his dis patches. The undersecretary, who acted for Doctor von Kuehlmann, the German foreign secretary, during Ids absence in Munich, asked the Argentine minis ter to request the Argentine govern ment to notify Count von Luxburg that the German government wished him to return immediately to Germany to explain the entire matter personally. Doctor Molina was asked to obtain a safe conduct for Count von Luxburg. Count von Luxburg announced that he probably will sail on September 28 for Bilboa, Spain, on a Spanish steamer. Foreign Minister Peyrredon, after reading Doctor Molina’s cablegram, announced that he declined to accept the assurances of Baron von dem Bussche-Haddenhausen as a satisfac tory settlement of the Luxburg inci dent, because it was merely the ver bal statement of an undersecretary. The Argentine foreign office is await ing a formal note from the German government before closing the inci dent. Washington, Sept. 14. —The-material aid given Germany by Sweden was not confined to transmission of naval se crets by code from Argentina to Ber lin. A copy of an official letter from Herr von Eckhardt, German minister in Mexico, to his home office, given out by Secretary Lansing on Thursday, makes the startling revelation that Folke Cronholm, Swedish charge d’affaires in Mexico City, was an active agent of the German government. So extensive were his services that he was recommended to the kaiser as being worthy of a special decora tion as reward for his services. It is shown that Folke Cronholm not only gave military and diplomatic in formation to Minister von Eckhhrdt at least up to March, 1916, but that he followed the example of his colleague in Buenos Aires by transmitting offi cial messages from the German em bassy in the official Swedish code to the foreign office at Stockholm and thence to Berlin. ~ RUSS TROOPS REPULSE FOES Stubborn Fighting in Progress on Northern Front —Italians Make Gains.
