portation. WASHINGTON. Nov. 6. Placing of
federal quarantine on shipment of live
itock out of Ohio and Wisconsin and re
port! of the rapid spread of the foot and.
mouth disease In states already quaran
tined marked the day's "developments at
the Department of Agriculture In the
fight against the worst epidemic of the
infection ever known In the United States.
Scores of additional federal Inspectors
were rushed Into the field to trace every
shipment from Infected centers. Reports
from inspectors already at work led de
partment officials to predict tonight that
many other communities soon will be af
. f ected.
Mansion " Wilson Confer.
The number of animals killed in Infected
areas Is rapidly mounting up, and the un
ited demand upon the department to
meet, this loss and the expenses of in
spectors led Secretary Houston to confer
with President Wilson regarding an
emergency appropriation from congress.
Under the present plan the .department
is paying the salaries of appraisers se
lected by the various states to 'fix the
value of slaughtered animals and Is bear
ing half of the actual meat value of the
animals killed. The states pay the other
half, leaving the owners to bear the loss
of feed destroyed, of business and of
the peculiar value of the live stock killed.
From Ohio during the day came reports
of Infected cattle in the Toledo live
stock yards. Fosteria and Moltne and
Norwalk. The outbreak In Wisconsin was
discovered . at Evansvlll.
Disease Qaleklr Spreads.
'" Inspectors reported thaFthe dlsensVhad
quickly spread over several scattered
counties in Illinois. Infected herds were
foind in Mount Sterling, Brown county;
Aledo, Mercer county; P wight. Living
ston county;' Piano, Kendall county; Big
Rock, Sugar Drove and Kanevllle, Kane
county, and Summit, Cook county. In
Pennsylvania and Michigan the Infected
'areas were reported to. have become ex
tended. . .,
.' So far the government, haa . taken . no
steps to Interfere wtih the transportation
of milk across state lines. The depart
ment officials hold that the disease 'is
easily communicated to hogs through milk
and even to human beings and children,
particularly. The policy now in force.
however, Is to leave to the local author
ities supervision over the milk supply
to the various communities.
Many Iaqalriea Made.
Hundreds of inquiries poured into the
department during the day from live
. stock owners and railroads as to the
movement of live stock and feed across
quarantined state lines. The government
officials declined to make any exceptions
to the rule that no live stock may be
taken out of quarantined states and the
ruled that hay. straw and manure must
be disinfected before being shipped from
Infected states. Farmers were advised
that two months probably would elapse
before they would be able to ship live
stock out of quarantined states.

Allies Arc Claiming Victories in
the East and West Battlefields
LONDON, Nov. 6. Although England
Continued to await with some uneasiness
official news as to the fate of certain of
Its warships In the Pacific, which were
engaged last Sunday with a German fleet
off the cosst of Chile, this anklety has
been In a measure counterbalanced by the
apparently favorable situation of the al
lied arms, both In the eastern and western
srenas.
The first German rush for the French
coast having been checked, the news of
the next few days will determine the
truth or falsity of predictions as to the
seriousness of the renewed German at
tempt to get to the roaat by a more south
erly route. There was nothing In the re
ports from West Flanders during the fore
noon to indicate the trend of the new
German attack, although Tprea continued
to figure as the military key against
which the Germans proposed to deliver
their hardest blows.
Opinion here Is divided as to whether
this fresh attempt to open a way to
the channel will rival In Intensity the
struggle along the Yser. Some British
optimists hold that the apparent exhaus
tion of the Germans Is an Indication that
they are really planning to fall back, as
they did before Paris on the entrench
ments they have been so carefully pre
paring everywhere back of their lines. If
this occurs It will mean another period
of siege warfnre along the entire front
In Belgium and France, a condition which
probably will persist until one side or
the other starts off on a new tangent, as
did the Germans In their costal attempt,
thus creating some new active area of hos
tilities. Meanwhile Indications are that naval
operations will become dally mre prom
inent, pnrtlcularly as Turkey's entrance
Uiti the situation widens the field for
AiH'h warfare.

War Summary
No British warships are In
Chilean ports. The fate of the
three British cruisers that en
gaged five German warships oft
the coast of Chile and the trans
port that accompanied them, re
mains a myfitery.
Great Britain has reclared war
on Turkey, and the Ottoman gov
ernment, despite distention In the
cabinet, Is definitely committed to
hostilities against Great Britain,
Russia, Franco and Servla.
The new drive ror the sea coast
of the heavily reinforced German
forces in Belgium has been met
by a counter offensive of the also
augmented armies of the allies In
the vicinity of Ypres.
"The Franco-British lines have
at no point drawn back," says the
afternoon French official state
ment, and our troops undertaking
the offensive have made notable
progress In several directions."
It Is declared that the allies
have made slight progress to the
east of Nleuport and that German
attacks from Dlxmade to the Lys
are being made with less energy.
Renewed German activity la re
ported on the center without nota
ble change, and on the night ot
the -allies the situation remains
deadlocked. .
A dispatch from Teheran re
ports that the Persians are much
excited over the clash between
Turkey and Russia. The pre
tender, Salared Dowleh, has pro
claimed himself as Germany's
candidate for the throne.
' Great .Britain baa formally an
nexed the Island of Cyprus. In the
Mediterranean, which has re
mained long under the suzerainty
of the Turkish sultan, though with
a British administration.
The Russian'' War office an
nounces that Russian troops have
entered ' Turkish"" Armenia, de
feated the Turks and occupied
four towns.,
The Russians are claiming that
the Germans are falling back not
only in Russian Poland, but also
oa the east Prussian frontier, and
that Russian troops have pene
trated at point on the east Prus
sian border.

looms large In London today. The
, British public is seeking details of
j the' battle ot last Sunday off the
