"All the positions pained by us in the last two days have been organized and strengthened. "In the region of the Aisnc, there were artillery duels and with our in fantry we made, appreciable progress. Several German trenches have been captured. We have made progress on all tho front except at a single point, where the enemy blew up ono of our trenches with a mine. On the heights of tho Meuse our artillery easily mastered that of the enemy.

Webster of Chi cago Gives Detailed Scien tific Information During the Forenoon in Suhl Trial. There was no testimony drring the continuation of the trial of Mrs. Suhl Wednesday morning to arouse popu lar interest and the crowd in the court room was the smallest that it has been at any time since the trial was begun. Dr. llalph W. Webster of Chicago was on the witness stand during the entire time and his cross examination was not finished until Wednesday afternoon. The doctor is a toxicologist and pathologist wide reputation anil the scientific formation which ho gave during course of the examination was much interest to those who couUl of of un- tiersiaiui u. j ne ini.n-r..imniiiiuNi occupied an hour of the forenoon. In general the testimony of Dr. Webster was to the effect that the procedure which was employed by the coroner and the state chemist during the autopsy over the body of Mr. Suhl and at the time of the analysis of his stomach was such as to leave the stomach very liable to contamination either during the operation, during the transit to Indianapolis or during the days preceding" the analysis. The witness declared that, in his opinion, such an exar dmtion as had been made to determine the cause of death in the case of Mr. Suhl would reveal absolutely nothing as to the cause of death. He held that the presence of arsenic in the stomach in itself would reveal nothing inasmuch as the cause of death could not he de termined without an analysis of other organs than the stomach in order to ascertain what pathological changes might have taken place. He said that he would riot attempt to diagnose arsenical poisoning by the symptoms alone. The cross-examination was directed for the purpose of showing that opin ions c-o'.id not be taken as facts and that in many cases it is a most dittl eult matter to tell exactly the ca ise of death. After hearing 20 witnesses the state tasted in the trial of Mrs. Augusta Suhl at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Counsel for Mrs. Suhl in their opening statement to the jury. Indicated that the defense would be based on testi mony that Mr. Suhl had not lived as he should hae lived and had declined in lualth until he Noame morose and salon and from time to time had made statenu nts indicating a possibil ity of his taking his own life. It was announced that Mrs. Suhl herself would take the stand to testify that she knew nothing concerning the dath of her husband. The defense' at present has js witnesses and the' examination of these will undoubtedly' occupy the remainder of the week. FIRE WRECKS BUILDING IN CHARLEST0WN YARDS P.OSTOX. Mass.

WASHINGTON, Dec. Many per sons are dodging the federal income tax and the law should be amended so as to catch them, William G. Mc Adoo, secretary of the treasury, say in his annual report made public liere todav. After giving a table taxed showing the number of Incomes by groups, he comments: "It is obvious, upon the face of the i returns, that there were more than 7l',42j persons out of a total populu- , tion of approximately a hundred mil- lion in this country who had ! tomes of from $,.00 to net in- for i it months the taxable period for the ! calendar year lyi.'h It may be said with equal truth that there were more than 11 4,4 SI people out of our entire population who had a net income of from $u.:)u3 to $rj;000, and more than 101.71S people out of our entire popu lation who had a net income of from $5,000 to $10,000 for the same period. It is clear that there were thousands of persons who failed altogether to make a return as required by law. "The remedy for this is, of course, to have the collectors of internal rev enue in each district make an assess ment upon those who, in the opinion of the collector are liable to the tax, and, in addition, to make such inves tigations as may be necessary to de termine who in each district have failed to make proper returns. Neeil for Change. "I should like to direct particular attention to the necessity for changing that part of the law which requires each person having a net income of $.V00i or over for the taxable year to make a return, so as to require each person having a gross income of $C,O0o or more for the taxable year to make a return. liy this change each and every person having a gross income of $:!,000 or more will be re quired to make a return, showing de ductions claimed, and the department will then have the opportunity of passing upon these deductions and de termining what amount of net In come is taxable. Such .an amendment would simplify the administration of the law, assure more complete re turns, materially increase the income tax revenue, and save an immense amount of expense to which the gov ernment is now subjected in maintain ing a sutlicient corps of inspectors and investigators to hunt out the people who have failed to make returi s. Another Amendment. "I should also like to direct atten tion to another amendment that should be made to the income tax law. The present law provides that the penalty for nonpayment of taxes shall not accrue until 10 days after the close of the fiscal year, and that KAISER CATCHES FEVER Emperor is on Road to Recov ery, However, and Will Re turn to Front Soon. LONDON, Dec. I. An telegraph agency dispatch e.xrha nge from Am- sterdam says: "Perlin' dispatches state that kaiser's condition is described as serious and that he is suffering from pneumonia, combined with nervous depression, as a result of over exer tion, and continual headaches. PF.KLdN. Dec. 0. (Via Amster dam) Kmperor William's illness is not serious and he will soon te aide to return to the front, it was an nounced todey. In tho future, how ever, he will be unable to visit the trenches. It is said that exposure due to a visit to one of the German trenches in Fast Prussia during a violent storm resulted in his taking a severe cold that developed into bronchial catarrh with a high fever. The em peror has been accompanied by his physician and the fever was imme diately reduced as a result of his ministrations. Kmperor William is still weak as a result of the fever, but he is steadi ly improving, it is announced. BERTSCHE SAYS MAM HE GAVE JOB ALWAYS DEMANDED THE 'DOUGH' CHICAGO. Dec. f. One of the candidate s for police commissioner of New York, according to Barney Per tsehe, whose confession resulted in the indictment of Police Capt. John J.

"The man I mean." said Bertsche. "rose to be a sergeant here before he retired to run a private business where he could make more money. He invented the continuance system. I thought he would be a friend of mine after I irot him a good berth. out he never failed to make me come He would nab my friends and then telephone me to come across nith the douh. His system was never to dismiss a case until he was paid. To insure payment in advance, lie continued the case."

Ther is no necessity for this provision, and it imposes the department a large amount of un necessary labor anil expense in col lecting the tax. Moreover, it en courages taxpayers to withhold pay ment of a large amount until after tho close of a liscal year, and to that extent affects the estimates and the income for the fiscal year. I respect fully recommend that this feature of the law be repealed and that the penalty for nonpayment of the tax attach on the lirst day of July of each year." Reviewing at great length emer gencies produced by the European wars and the measures taken to meet them, the secretary declares the con llict makes any estimates of the fu ture financial position of the United States extra hazardous. He -continues: "The ordinary fiscal year 1915 receipts for the are estimated at $7:18,000,000 including Sl'L'O.OOO.OOO from customs. It is impossible to es timate with accuracy, however, the re ceipts from customs for the liscal year 191a, as the effects of the Euro pean war upon imports can not be foretold with any degree of certainty. The ordinary disbursements are esti mated at $710,000,000. showing an es timated surplus of ordinary receipts of $18,000,000 for the fiscal year end ing June HO, li13. Payments which may be made for the Panama canal during the year from the general fund of the treasury without sales of bonds, approximating the sum of $2S, 000,000, would, however, absorb the excess of ordinary receipts and show an excess of disbursements of $10,0u0.000. War Raised Need. "Put for the European war, which luis largely districted imports, the revenue under the tariff law of Oc tober 19 1;;, in operation for the full years of ICH.a, together with the other sources of receipts, would have pro vided sutlicient funds to meet the or dinary expenses of the government. To meet the extraordinary conditions now prevailing, the emergency rev enue law of October 22, 1914, was enacted, under which approximately $98,000,000 is expected to be realized, $."4. 000,000 thereof in the current liscal year and $4 4,000,000 in the fiscal year 19 HI.

Our losses were compar atively small." "West of Kheims a building flying the Bed Cross tlag was bombarded and tet on lire by our troops, who ascer tained beyond doubt, by means of aviators, that behind the huilding was hidden a heavy French battery.

In direct allegations that easily be taken by a foreign fleet. Bear Admiral Fletcher, commander of the Atlan tic lleet, told the house naval af fairs committee today that the pres ent fortifications of the American Metropolis supplemented by mines, should make mat city safe. The rear admiral asserted that the battleship is still the deciding factor in naval warfare and cannot be sup planted by submarine:. The Kuropean war, Admiral Fletcher said, hail not demonstrated that the battleship is any less val uable or that it will not be the main factor hereafter in deciding sea con liicts. "The use of the submarine," said the admiral, "depends largely upn opportunity. If the opportunity docs not appear the value of the sub marine is dimnished. The nation which has the greatest number of big battleships will control the sea. Hep. Hobson asked if Germany could control the sea '?veii if she had f.00 submarines. Admiral Fletcher said he thought not. The admiral said the lleet is in satisfactory con dition although he admitted that most of the submarines on the At lantic coast, are undergoing .epairs or overhauling and that there is but one submarine now in lirst class lighting trim. The submarines un dergoing repairs, he said, would be ready within two or three months. Fletcher said that a complete de fense against snbmaiines will be found. "Submarines are largely to delay movements of fleets and to hamper them," said the admiral. "It is true that they cause uneasiness among the men of the licet. Eventually battle ships come together, however, and decide the battle." OPERATORS EXPECTED TO TAKE BACK MEN WHO VOTE TO EMD STRIKE DENVEK, Colo., Dec. 9. The miners in the Colorado coal fields who last night voted to end the strike, will not be taken back, according to the emphatic statement today by Frank E. Gove, counsel for the operators. It as believed here, however, that Pres't Welbron of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. will allow the men to return. The resolution adopted by the con vention was prepared by the national oliicers in Indianapolis ami was sent here by a special committee. It pro vides that the men apply for their places in the mines in the northern and southrn lields. depending upon the Low commission to procure for them reforms which they demanded. These reforms consist chietly of a de mand that the mine owners obey the laws regulatin.g work. A private telegram received here from Washington stated that Sec'y of War Garrison would withdraw the federal troops at once. Chairman Frank P. Walsh of the lederal corn-mission on industrial re lations today expressed gratification at the eallins off of the Colorado miners' strike. j:. H.

Herriek, former United .States ambas sador to France, arrived from Europe today on the li :er ltochambeau, and was given an otticial reception and tendered the freedom of the city in recognition of his valuable services in Paris during the early days of the war. Mr. Herriek put his foot down hard upon presidential booms which had been launched in his favor by enthu siastic republicans friends and follow ers, and when questioned as to his at titude he declared: "I do not care to talk about such a nonsensical proposition. If there is any credit due me for what little I have done I have no desire to capital ize it and shall not do so." The retiring ambassador was em phatic in his praise of the generosity of the American people, but criticized the method of distributing American relief abroad, saying it lacked organ isation and system. .Mr. Herriek was met at the pier by a committee of 4 0 prominent persons of New York and Cleveland. O., head ed by .Maoir John Purroy Mitchel and W. II. Truesdell. president of tho Ohio society.

Jf course, there is a lot of misery caused by it. but wo must take care of our own people and then we must consider what we can spare and divide up with those in need on the other side." As to his future plans the ex-ambassador said: "I will tell you confidentially that I must go to work. I have no future plans outside of that. I need the money for expenses." Just at this noint a customs otticial vhisoferel to Mr. Herriek that lie had .tbecn accorded the courtesy of that I port and that no fe-s would be I charged. Mr. Herriek laughed as he j replied: ' "That's trood. I need it. I- have not got a cent. "I don't want to talk about war or j politics, or myself," said Mr. Herriek. when he was first approached. Fut T would like to say something about charity. The American people have shown great heart and sympathy, but in this great crisis as well as in other disasters, they have shown a lack of organization. The American people have given money and provisions hut there has been no system. The chari ties are now like an army without a staff, a number of banks without a clearing house. A central organiza tion would save at least 2) per cent." 51 JOSEPH COUNTY IS HEAVIEST LOSER Vaue of Live Stock Slaughtered Due to Disease is $50, 000 Says Report.
