Paris regards' the present attack of the Germans as their supreme effort in this greatest of bat tles. French commentators suggest it may mark the close of the Verdun cam paign whatever the outcome. Berlin views the Verdun operations confidently, pointing to the large extent of groiind gained in a difficult region and the losses inflicted on the French. With the exception of the Verdun sec tor, no military operations of particu lar significance were reported from any of the battle fronts on three continents.

AMERICAN WOOLEN RAISES WAGES ASQUITH SAYS ALLIES DO NOT DESIRE TO STRANGLE GERMANY British Premier Declares They Intend International Problems Must Not Be Handled by a Government Con trolled By' a Military Caste. London, April 11. On the occasion of a government reception to visiting French senators and deputies at Lancaster house last night, Premier Asquith took the op portunity to reply to the speech deliv ered in the Reichstag by the imperial tiernian chancellor. The premir, in proposing the toast ''Our guests" referred to Von Bethmann Hollweg's claim to readiness, on the part of Germany to negotiate peace, and said: "The German chancellor wants us to assume the attitude of a defeated to a victorious adversary. But we, are not defeated; we are not going to be de feated." Reiterating that the allies were only I prepared for peace on the terms of his declaration of November, 1914, Mr. As- I quith proceeded: "The chancellor first misquotes my lan guage then proceeds to distort its ob vious meaning and intention. Great Brit ain and France entered the war, not to strangle Germany or wipe her off tho map of Europe; not to destroy or muti late her national life; certainly not to i interfere w ith, to use the chancellor's langtiiige, 1 lie free exercise of her peace ful endeavors. "As a result of the war we Intend lo establish the principle that international problems must be handled by free ne gotiation on equal terms between lio people, and that this settlement shall no longer be hampered or swayed by tie overmastering dictation of a govern ment controlled by a military caste. That is what I mean by the destruc tion of the military domination of Prus sia -not hing more, but nothing less." "The chancellor savs that after the Ten Per Cent Increase in New England and New York Shops of the Com pany May Be Prelude to Gen eral Textile Increase. Boston, April 11. A 10 per cent in crease in wages, effective April 17, was announced to-day by the American Wool en company. The increase will affect 25,000 employes of the company in New England and New York. It was under stood here that similar advances were likely in other textile industries. Columbus, N. M., April 11. This town, ridden with alarmist rumors, was re lieved to-day when the night passed without sign of the trouble which many of its citizens feared. T. A. Husley, a deputy sheriff, feeling that every precau tion should be taken to protect the town against the possibility of a repetition of the raid of a month ago, has requested that militiamen be sent here to assist the regular troops policing the border. The tension which has been manifest the past 24 hours was somewhat abated to-day but some citizens, despite the as surances of the military authorities that there were no grounds for fears and that the troops were amply prepared to care for any emergency, seemed to be slightly uneasy. ARRESTED IN EL PASO. RUMOR OF VILLA'S DEATH HEARD IN WASHINGTON Washington, D. C, April 11. L'noffieial and unconfirmed reports that Villa is dead reached the Car ranza enilatssy to-day and were given some degree of credence by the olliciuls there. The reports were represented as having cime from Quertaro, the ftorranza pro-' visional capital. They were un substantiated by tho latest dis patches to tho war und state de partments. Circumstantial reports of Villa's recent injury, however, and the rigors of his long and hurried flight gave some color to the pos sibility that the bandit chieftain may have been unable to survive the hardships of flight in his dis abled condition.

Baca, One of Best Known Lawyers in the Southwest. El Paso, Tex., -April 11. Eifego Baca, one of the best known lawyers in the southwest, formerly district attorney in Socorro, N. M., and a leader in new Mex ican Republican politics, was arrested here last night in connection with the, flight over the border of General Salazar Sunday. , Eight Mexicans, all of whom have played important parts in Mexico politics I at one time or another, were t arrested at the same time. Among them was General Saragoso, who was in command at Tampico under Huerta, when the nr- rest of American marines precipitated the crisis which led to the occupation of Vera Cruz, and General Careveo, a former lieutenant of Orozeo. All eight are said to have been working in the in terest of Felix Diaz. This report, offi cers said, supports the theory that Sala zar proposes to declare for that leader. Haea represented Salazar at the let ter's trials for gun running, conspiracy against American neutrality and per jury. In each case his client was ac quitted. After his first arrest, Salazar escaped from jail in Albuquerque and was said to have made an abortive at tempt to start a revolution in Sonora. Baca was indicted as an accomplice in the escape and later acquitted.

He told of the advantages of having wooden guard rails at dangerous places and he described what hc-eonsid-ers to be an ideal fence for the purpose. He urged that bridges and culverts be put in good condition and it was his opinion tlwt bridges and rulverts strong er than required to carry present traliie should be built to be prepared for in crease of traffic. Cement rulverts were recommended, and the speaker thought blocks 20 inches square were best. He thought filling holes in highways with gravel was a lietter plan than scraping the roads.

The permission is grant ed with the stipulation that the crossing be laid in cement IS inches thick and that no cars shall be moved on the sid ing within the limits of the highway without the protection of a flagman. This favorable action follows a hearing held in Barre on April 4. when evidence was presented which caused the public service commission to arrive at the fol lowing conclusion: "We find that the Boutwell. Milne & Varnum company, who are large quarry owners and operators in the town of Marre, are about to erect a new power plant at the company's quarry at gran iteville, in the town of Barre; that the necessities of its business require an in dustrial siding running from the tracks of the Barre A Chelsea railroad to said new power plant; that it is impossible to construct such a siding without cross ing the highway leading from Boutwell station to Graniteville and that the busi ness of the Boutwell, Milne & .Varnum company is essential to the industrial welfare of the town and city of Barre.
