' Paris, June 28. Amid the cheers of a great crowd the second contin gent of American troops arrived safe ly at a French port and Immediately disembarked. Enthusiasm rose to ' fever pitch when it was learned that the transports and convoys had sue cessfully passed the submarine zono, The port was speedily beflagged In honor of the occasion. All the troops now arrived were transferred to a camp where Major General William L. Slbert is Installed Thence they probably will go soon to a point near the front. All the troops are in excellent s'.iape, enthusiastic over the successful trip and their re ception, and eager for action. Major General Pershing, the Ameri can commander, Is expected today. The harbor is dotted with convoys. The streets are filled with soldiers in khaki and with bluejackets. Great numbers of trucks are transporting immense supplies to the camp in which the troops are concentrating. While the troops were embarking or steaming toward their destination. General. Pershing an4 his staff, sup plemented by a special corps of gen eral staff officers, have been busy pre paring the way for the new army that Is to fling itself soon against the Ger man lines. The camp sites have been selected, the details of the final train ing to be given before the move to the front begins have been worked out, and the question of supply and transportation lines studied. Reg' ments of the national army, composed of railway workers and engineers, will aid In that work. No announcement was made as to General Pershing's disposition of his forces. This has been left to him to decide In conference with the French general staff and' with officials of the British army. The American troops will be an Independent force, co-operating with the allies. It hae been sug gested that the Americans might b? placed between the French and Brit ish forces as a connecting link, but the exigencies of the planned cam paigns will govern that question. NEW RECORD SET American Troops Landed on French Soil Without a Mishap. Washington, June 28. The advance guard of the mighty army the United States Is preparing to send against Germany Is on French soil. In defiance of the German subma rines, thousands of seasoned regulars and marines, trained fighting men, with the tan of long service on the Mexican border, or in Haiti or Sani.0 Domingo still on their face, have bee:i hastened overseas to fight beside the allies, on the western front News of the safe arrival of the troops sent a new thrill through Washington. No formal announce ment came from the war department None will come, probably, until Major General Pershing's official report has been received. Then there may be a statement as to the numbers and composition of the advance guard. Dispatches from France, presuma bly sent forward with the approva of General Pershing's staff, show that Major General Sibert, one of the new major generals of the army, has been given command of the first force sent abroad under General Pershing an commander In chief of the expedition. One thing stands out s'larply, de spite the fact that the size of the task that has been accomplished is not fully revealed as yet. This Is that American enterprise has set a new record for the transportation of troops. Considering the distance to be covered and the fact that all reser vations had to be made after the or der came from the White House the night of May 18, It Is practically cer tain that never before has a military expedition of this size assembled, con veyed and landed without a mishap In so short a time by any nation. The American forces will be a net gain to the allies. It will throw no single burden of supply or equipment upon them. The troops will be fed, clothed, armed and equipped by the United States. Around them at the camp on French soil are being stored supplies that will keep them going for months, and more will follow. General Pershing and his staff have been busy for days preparing for the arrival of the men. Despite the enor mous difficulties of unpreparedness and submarine dangers that faced them, the plans of the army general staff have gone through with clock like precision.

GRANGE AFFAIRS The Grange picnic held east ol Montezuma was a grand success Notwithstanding the heavy rain, the grove was in good shape. Peopl hesitated coming early but by th noon hour the tables began to show not the high cost of living, but plenty of every conceivable good eats Meats of all kinds, cheese and salads, picktes and Jell, dressing and eggs, fruits and puddings, pies and cakes buns and bread and last but best of all at such gatherings plenty of hot coffee and milk and a hearty good cheer from all participants.

Come. Reg ular admission. WASHINGTON NEWS Washington, June 28. According to a ruling of the War Department, the organization of the army will in elude only one Judge Advocate to each division, or about thirty for the entire force. Each state's national guard is to be allowed to select the udge Advocate for the state. Thus there will be less than an average of one Judge Advocate to each state, and he must have military experience as well as several years' experience In the legal profession. Men of nation al renute. such as J. M. Dickinson and Henry L. Stimson, former cabi net officers, have offered to serve without pay, hence the chances are slim for hundreds of young lawyers ho seek appointment. - A Judge Advocate is the Judicial officer of a division. Just because a man has registered s not always an infallable sign that he hopes to be conscripted for the French Expedition Army, if the mail received each week by Congressman B. F. Welty is a clue. Though for tunately few In number, there are young men who hope to avoid the ex pedition by, various methods. As persons engaged in carrying the mails are exempted, according to the law, vacancy in the position of rural or city carrier will occasionally bring forth a slacker with the other appli cants, and clerical positions in var ious departments of the Government service look fine to others. The lat ter is no exemtion, however, as the authorities are as liable to conscri.pt Government employe as any one else. Girls are to be placed in the vacancies thus created, it is announc ed. Lewis Fickert, of Liberty town ship, was thrown head first from a Ford, his nose split, his face badly cut and his body badly bruised, last Monday night, when the machine, driven by his brother, Otto Fickert, went into a ditch a mile and a half northwest of town. The latter drove the car off a culvert bridge while at tempting to go around a heavy wag on. The driver was uninjured.

He was carried to his home and Drs. Hattery and Gibbons were sum On examination the doctors found he had several broken ribs and It was feared he was injured Internally. At present he is getting along nicely and it is hoped that he will be about again in a few weeks. " - Fourth District manufacturers are on the job" when it comes to doing their "bit" for Uncle Sam during the war. Many offers have been receiv ed by Congressman Welty from fac tory owners who offer thqlr plants for the use, of the Government, and representativs of several large con cerns in Lima, Piqua and other cities are in Washington copying plans and specifications in the hope of landing contracts.

A Mercer county boy is being held at the Columbus barracks, charged with being a deserter from company F. Second Ohio Infantry, while in the Federal service. The lad, Frank Stoner, is the nine teen year old son of Henry Stoner of Union township. He is charged with having desert ed rt Camp Willis on AugUBt 31, 1916. He was captured at Frank fort, Indiana, in November, and tak en to Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indi ana, from which place he made his escape in December.

Sergeant Casteel and the officers went first to the lad's father's home at Mercer where they were informed that young Stoner had gone to Rock ford on a motorcycle. They at once started for Rockford and apprehend ed Stoner on his way back to Mercer. He was at once taken to Spencer ville and arraigned before Captain Howe, who after a hearing ordered his extradition to the Post Command er at the Columbus barracks. Sergeant Casteel should be high ly commended for his efficiency in getting on the track of young Stoner. LIMA FOLKS ARE SEEIN' THINGS BONE DRY I 4 niiiri vtn VUltl wiw Section Just Drawn W: Booze Making During War New Prohibition Plan, Leaders Admh, Precludei Enactment of the Food Control Measure by July 1 Scope of the Legislation and President's Powers Extended by the Senate Agricultural Committee. Washington, June 28. Food control legislation assumed new and more drastic form when the senate agricul tural committee virtually redrafted many of the principal features of the house measure and reported It with material extensions of government power and a new bone dry prohibition provision to stop manufacture of in toxicating beverages during the war. The president would be authorized to permit wine making and to comman deer existing distilled spirits. The new prohibition plan, all lead ers admitted, greatly complicates the situation and precludes enactment of the legislation by July 1. In extending the scope of the legis lation and the president's powers, the committee adopted amendments which would provide for government control, In addition to food, feeds anil fuel, of iron, steel, copper, lead and their products, farm implements and machinery, fertilizers and bindlug twine materials. Other Important amendments ap proved would authorize' the govern ment to take over and operate fac tories, packing houses, oil wells and mines, regulating wages of their em ployes, and to commandeer supplies of any and every kind when needed for the army and navy, "or any other public use connected with the public defense." Another would empower the govern- ment to buy and sell, for general civ lllan purposes, food, fuel and feeds, with limitation upon the general leg islation making it apply to agencie3 and products only In Interstate or foreign commerce. The amendments are declared by senators who have been opposing as well as those supporting the legisla tion to Improve the bill and remove almost all opposition except on pro hibition. The prohibition section was written into the bill by a vote of 9 to 7. The committee rejected Its subcommit tee's recommendation that the presi dent be given authority to permit con tinuance of manufacture of malt and fermented beverages. The possibility of a filibuster be cause of the drastic prohibition pro posal is being considered. Senate leaders agree that the prohibition fight will probably be long and one of the most strenuous in the senate's history, with alignment extremely close on the question of stopping manufacture of beer. In rewriting and extending the bill the committee adopted a new amend ment aimed to prevent government employes or officers from selling their own materials to the government ICE-CREAM SOCIAL FOR BENEFIT OF RED CROSS The young people of Washington township will give an Ice cream so clal for' the benefit of the Ked Cross Fund on Wednesday evening, July 4 th at the Washington township school grounds.

AS ONE DIVISION Lima Daily News Coming from "somewhere in the southwest and going to somewhere in the northeast" two warplanes passed over the city of Lima last night. They were evidently machines of the U. S. aviation school at Celina but what their destination is, is not knoivn. The machines followed each other in a direct southwesterly direction, flying at the rate of approximately 75 miles er hour. It took but three min- uts to come into view and pass out of sight over the city. Hundreds of persons watched the flight with spy glasses and opera glasses. Both ma- cholnes left a streak of fire behind them, looking like shining stars as they appeared in the southwest. The machines were seen at 9:30 o'clock. They flew about a half mile In the air, just high enough to have made it Impossible for an tnemy gun ner to hear the buzz of the motor and Just low enough to be guided by the lights of the cities below. It is for this reason the cities of England are kept dark at night, to prevent airnen from locating bombing spots. No dohbt the above paragraph Is in reference to a couple of planes from the Celina Aviation Field as the boys do a lot of flitting around in the cooling breezes of the evening. And no doubt the planes were going bet ter than 70 miles per hour, for many of our ,planes do much better time than that, but we are still wondering If our Lima friends carry their spy glasses around in their pockets.
