AUSTRIANS ARE HANDED SEVERE PEACE TERMS
Austria today learned something of the cost of her alliance with Ger
many in an attempt to rule the world and crush all opposing nations. The
once proud and haughty ' dual empire" pictured as an eagle with two heads,
is reduced from a great empire with a population of 50,000,000 inhabitants,
° comprising many states, to an absolutely powerless state with only about
six or seven million population. All of her rights as a powerful nation, as
well as most of her territory is taken from her and she is reduced to the
status of a colony, to be governed by those she had planned to rule with
- an iron hand/,
The peace treaty for Austria was handed to the Austrian delegates by
Premier Clemenceau, president of the peace conferenc, at 12:22 o'clock today.
Premier Clemenceau talked but three minutes in presenting the terms. The
Austrians consumed half an hour in replying. This being their only chance
to talk, they took advantage of it. There will be no further verbal dis
cussion. All discussion must be made in writing. Austria has 15 days in
which to file her final answer.
Italian Claims Still Unsettled.
PARIS.—(By the Associated Press.)—The peace terms were presented
to Austria today with the problem of Italy's claims in the Adriatic unsolved.
The council of four held a brief meeting before going to St. Germain this
morning. Premier Orlando of Italy, and Colonel House of the United
States were present. The Adriatic question was discussed.

ST. GERMAIN, France.—Austria today was given 15 days in which to
reply to the peace terms presented by the allied nations.
The Austrian representatives, escorted by an Italian officer, arrived at
the chamber at 12:22 o'clock, entering the chamber by the rear entrance.
Immediately upon their arrival the session was formally opened. Premier
Clemenceau, president of the conference, immediately began his address.
He spoke only three minuses. Paul Dutasta, general secretary of the delega
tion, Austrian chancellor and head of the delegation, began an address in
He began with a complaint at the delay In presentation of the peace
terms and declared that the Austrian republic is entirely free from the
Hapsburg dynasty and would never declare war, itself, he asserted. He con
cluded his address at 12:56.
The Austrian Peace Terms.
Austria is left, by this treaty, a state of from six to seven million people
Inhabiting territory .between five and six thousand square miles.

Czecho-Slovakia, the Serb-Croat-Slovene state and to cede other territories
which previously were in uniôn with her, and which composed the Austria
Hungarlan empire, with a population of over 60,000,000 people.
Austria must agree to accept the league of nations covenant and the
labor charter and renounce all her extra European rights and demobilize
her whole naval and aerial forces and admit the right by trial by the allied
and associated powers, of her nationals who were guilty of violating the
laws an,d customs of force and to accept detailed provisions similiar to those
in the German treaty, regarding economic relations and freedom of transit.
Some riauses Not Yet Presented.
Those clauses not yet ready for presentation are to be delivered as soon
as possible, the Austrians, in the meantime to have an opportunity to begin
work on the greater part of the treaty in an effort to facilitate the final de
The Austrian treaty follows exactly the same outline as the German
treaty, and, in many places, is identical, except for change of name. Certain
specific clauses which applied only to Germany are, of course, omitted, and
certain new clauses included, especially as regards the creation of new states
out of former Austria-Hungarian empire and the protection of racial, religi
ous, linguistic minorities in Austria, Czech-Slovakia and the Serb-Croat
The 15 days stipulation regarding Austria's reply, refers only to that
portion of the terms handed them today.

WASHINGTON.—The official summary of the Austrian peace terms
made available in diplomatic circles here today includes the following:
"Outside of Europe Austria renounces all rights, titles and privileges to
her own or her allies' territories to all the allied and associated powers and
undertakes to accomplish whatever measures are taken by the principal
allied powers in relation thereto.
Norway Refuses to Join Blockade.

METHODISTS HAVE RAISED ALL
BUT $10,000,000 OF THE
The great drive for $105,000,000 for
the Methodist church in its centen
niai year, has been quite successful.
At last reports the drive lacked but
$10,000,000 of being complete and it
is thought that districts and churches
which have not reported will put it
over the top. In the report given
below Moscow is credited with only
part of its quota. But this is Moscow
district, which includes many towns
and churches outside of Latah coun-I
ty. Moscow went over the top with
several hundred dollars to spare, be
fore the expiraiton of the time limit.
The following report from Portland
tells about the drive:
Portland, May 30.—A total of $94,
434,000 of the $105,000,000 asked for
in the Methodist centenary campaign
has been subscribed, according to an
announcement today by Dr. Charles
A. Bowen, executive secretary of the
centenary in the nort'hwest. _
The northwest total is $2,040,137 on
a quota of $2,383,000. Two hundred
and seventy five churches have gone
over the top, equalling or exceeding
Leaders in the campaign are hope
ful that when all reports have been
completed, the Methodist centenary
will show a 100 per cent subscription.
"During the last 100 years, the
Methodist Episcopal church has sub
scribed the equivalent of 100 tons
of gold or 1640 tons of silver dollars,"
said Dr. Bowen.
"Our 100 tons of gold has carried
the word of Christianity into 37 na
tions of the world. We propose to
spend, in the next five years, more
than we have spent in the past 100
years expending the epuivalent of

The administration in charge of railroads and telegraph lines won in

Railroad Rate» Increase Upheld.
WASHINGTON.—The railroad freight and passenger rate increases made
by the railroad administration last June were upheld today by the supreme
The court also set aside the lower court decrees, which held under sec
tion 15, railroad control act, that pre-existing intrastate rates remained in
effect as lawful police regulations.
The court held that the authority conferred by resolution and act of war
powers were conferred on the president and federal government's power is
"supreme and conclusive." The opinion is unanimous.
Telephone and Telegraph Get Boost, Too.
WASHINGTON.—Increased telephone and telegraph rates put into effect
last January 21, under orders of Postmaster General Burleson were upheld
today by the supreme court. The court held that under the joint resolution
by which the wire systems were taken over by the government, there is
authority for interfering with intrastate rates.

THE BOOZE CHARGE
ZENS DID NOT DRINK AT
DANCES, GIVEN BY CLUB
POTLATCH.—A wave of indig
nation swept over Potlatch yesterday
when The Daily Star-Mirror came out
with a front page article in regard to
the raid made by the county officials
on the Bertoloni residence here, at
which time they confiscated a goodly
supply of liquor. The residents of
Potlatch had no objection to this re
p or ^ being given publicity, but they
do seriously obj'ect to the last par
a g ra ph of the article which states
^at there has been more or less
"booze" at the dances here. This
statement is absolutely unfounded,
rpbe only dances held here for many
; months have been at the Potlatch Am
j a t eur Athletic Club house and pat
■ r0 nized by the best people.
i The Star-Mirror got the story from
John Nesbit,, county attorney, who
'was with Sheriff Moody and Deputy
Sheriff Summerfield when the ar
restes were made Mr Nesb i t , who
i ln j i,„„ n invpt-Ho-if ino- the nnr)

following is a verbatim conv of
* ' ,_^
, "There were several persons at a
t dan ce a few evenings ago drinking
this brand of liquor, and through this
the sheriff's force received the clue
to the whereabouts of the cache."
In conversation with the editor of
The Star-Mirror Mr. Nisbet said that
drinking at dances in Potlatch had
been the cause of the investigation
which résulte! in the arrests. Both
™ r ' S 5 ™*" coua by attorney, and
Sheriff Woody and his deputy, Chas.
Summerfield, had been working on
the case and probably know the facts
better than any one else.
The Star-Mirror had no intention
or desire to reflect on the good peo-
ple of Potlatch and we are sure the
officers had no intention to cast any
unj'ust reflections upon the good peo-
ple of that town.

At times it may seem as if the war
from which we are emerging was an
unmixed evil, and yet here and there
good came from it. One of the things
that came from this great war was
a wakened public conscience and a
great spirit of service and conse
cration. Before the war the Interstat
Committee of the Y. M. C. A. for
Oregon and Idaho carried on work
only in the larger cities and colleges,
and at a few industrial points. The
war brought on the realization that
the Y. M. C. A. was not putting on as
broad a as it should, and
it is proposed to put on a work that,
within the next two years, will place
the benefits of the association work
within the reach of not less than
90 per cent of the boys and young
men of Oregon and Idaho, whether
they live in cities, villages, on the
farm or in industrial centers.
The putting on of the completed
program will require the raising of
$50,000. This amount is to be raised
in a campaign which will be put on
between June 2nd and 9th in Ore
gon and Idaho.
