Bent on tho slaugh tor of the soldiers who fired into a home rule crowd Sunday, killing four and wounding 80-odd, a furious mob today stormed the local barracks, broke down the gatos and exchanged several fchots with the troop3 before the police succeeded in scattering the people. The outbreak was a renewal of the disorders which continued all of last night and only ceased when those en gaged in them were forced by exhaus tion to snatch a few haurs' slumber. The authorities had hoped quiet was permanently restored but as the day advanced throngs began to assemblo ngain about the barracks and finally the rushes against them were resumed with even greater violence than before. Many in the crowd had firearm's. Nearly all carried heavy black thorn clubs and brickbats, and cobblestones Hew in showers. The troops were heav ily outnumbered, and but for the police the soldiers might have fared badly. The blueeoats.. had won. the people's Rood will by refusing yesterday to at tack the crowds, and succeeded, rather by persuasion than force, in dispersing them. There was every indication, howover, that there would be more" attacks on the barracks, and urgent messages were scot to the London war office, repre Hcnting that peace would not be possi ble tintil the King's Own Scotch Bor derers, who were responsible for Sun day's tragedy, were withdrawn. It was expected orders to this effect would soon be received. Some even predicted that it would be hard work to get the troops out of Dublin alive. Dublin, July 27. Catholic Ireland was in a violent state of excitement today over Sunday's killing of four persons and the wounding of 67 by troops who had been attempting the disarmament of home rule gun-runners at Howth, ten miles from Dublin. The government's order agaiust the importation of arms into Ireland, was intended primarily to prevent the arm ing of the Ulster anti-home rulers, who were threatening civil war if the home rule bill passed. It was effective also against the home rulers, however. In view of the "antis' " threats and of the fact that they were smuggling quantities of weapons into the coun try in defiance of the order, the na tionalist volunteers were anxious to pro vide themselves similarly. Arrangements had accordingly been made for a landing at Howth Sunday afternoon. The Dublin volunteers re ceived orders earlv in the dav to march to a destination unknown ex cept to the officers; arrived at Howth just after noon aud found awaiting them a yacht, its name printed out, which immediately begun unloading rifles. Members of the royal Irish con stabulary tried to interfere but stood no chance against the hundreds of dis ciplined volunteers who opposed them. Coast guards also approached in the yacht in a launch but were kept off at the pistols point by three men and an equal number of women, who consti tuted the crew. 10,000 Rifles Landed. Ten thousand rifles and a quantity of ammunition having been landed, the yacht put to sea again after putting ashore one of the three women, who started for Dublin by automobile. In the meantime the Dublin author ities had been notified. It was im- possiDie to get reinforcements to Howth in time to prevent the landing but aj utrong detachment of carbine-armed 1 constables and 100 of the King's Own ! Scottish Borderers were rushed to the! ena oi me iiowtn roaa near rairview to intercept the volunteers as they re turned to Dublin. The volunteers made a detour to eater the city by a different route but encountered another force of soldiers. The latter started to disarm them and actually had taken their weapons from a few when someone it is. not certain whether a soldier or a volunteer fired. Several shots were exchanged and two soldiers were wounded. Taking advantage of the eonfusion, the volunteers bolted into the city, most of them getting safely to their homes with their rifles. The soldiers then started to march back to their barracks. The people, (Continued on page 2.) CAILUI JURI IN DANGER IF VERDICT OF Another Duel Probable Over Testimony of Caillaux This Morning CALLED BERSTEIN DESERTER FROM ARMY Anonymous Threats of Death Received by Jurors; Bern stein Will Challenge Paris, July 27. Madame Henriette Caillaux, on "trial rere for killing Editor Gaston Calmotte of 'Le Figaro'', was near complete collapse today. Stimul ants had to be administered to her hypodermically before she could enter the courtroom. Reports were current that the jurors had received anonymous threats of death if thev returned a verdict of euiltv. Dr" Eugene Doyen testified that Cal metto's wound should not have proved fatal that proper treatment would have saved his life. Doyen is one of the most famous surgeons in France. As a practitioner, however, he is entirely unorthodox, with the result that, while many peo ple almost idolize him, others, especial ly in medical circles, hate him bitterly. It was considered certain that his testimony would start a violent con troversy. Mine. Caillaux wanted him as a witness at her preliminary hearing but the magistrate refused to summon him. -r - -A duel between Mme. Caillaux 's hus band, ex-Finance Minister Joseph Cail laux, and Henry Bernstein, the author and playwright, was expected today as an outcome of the trial. Bernstein testified last week .that from things Calmette told him he was convinced the editor never made 30,000 franc offer, as the defense asserted he did, to his society editress to arrange a meeting between himself and Caillaux 's first wife, from whom the defonse maintained he hoped to secure documents for use against j Caillaux. Caillaux, on the stand again today to amplify some of his previous testimony, referred in a casual way but evidently by intention, to Bernstein as a deserter from the army. The author, who was in the court room, leaped to his feet with an angry retort. Caillaux ignored him at the time, but a challenge was considered certain. Caillaux having finished his testi mony, Bernstein insisted on being heard in reply. His testimony, which had nothing whatever to do with the case, consisted of a bitter arraignment of Caillaux 's political record and a de nial of the latter 's insinuation against him. Caillaux partisans in the court room hissed him frequently and the disorder finally reached such a point that the room was cleared of spectators. BASEBALL TODAY National. First game R. H. E.

H. W. MEYERS STARTS EAST THIS EVENING Will Spend a Month Selecting Tall and ..Winter Stock for the New and En larged Department Store. H. W. Meyers, of the Meyers depart ment store, is en his way to the East, on his regular fall buying, trip. He went to Portland in his motor car and will begin his railway journey to the Atlantic coast this evening. He will be absent at least a month and will visit Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and New York and othor large centers while away. His object is to make the selections for the finer class of goods to be ordered and placed on sale for the fall and winter wear in Sulnm. In New York city, where he will spend considerable time, he will meet the large importers as tney ar rive direct from Paris, London and the other European points of supply and will be given an opportunity to look over their displays of the very latest creations and fabrics that fashion has decreed. His task will be greater this year than ever before, because the va ricty of garments is larger and offers a much wider range of selection, and al so because the Meyers store is to carry a bieser stock this year than ever. In the many departments of the big stores like Meyers, there is Buch a di versity of articles and so many of them are sold in the course of a year that the matter of buying them is very important. Some of them are not sold through jobbers, so Mr. Meyers makes it a point to visit the factories, study ing tho manner of their production ana buying direct from the makers. Sev eral departments are to be added this year, and he will select the stock for them also. The work of remodeling tho Meyers st(jre is being carried on as fust as pos- sible. The present shoe section is-to give way to the ladies' ready-to-wear department( an,j it X3 hoped to have the change made by Thursday, after which his department will open directly on Court street.

Portland, i Ore., July 27. The const! tutionality of the Btate "blue sky' law was upheld in the United States district court here today when Judge Wolverton . rendered an opinion declar iue that Corporation Commissioner R, A. W atson had a right to oust tne in a ttonal Mercantile company, Ltd., of Vancouver, B. C, from carrying on its business of securing loans in the stats. The decision was in a suit tiled by tho National Mercantile company in wnich it was alleged the "blue aky" law was unconstitutional. The evidence in the suit was beard by three federal judges sitting en banc. In commenting on the character of tho company, Judge Wolverton 'g opin ion read: "While we are not assured that tho business carried on can be characterized as a lottery, yet from a cursory exam ination of the scheme under which the company makes its supposed loans and prosecuted its project, we are not at all persuaded that it is not engaged in a fraudulent business. ' Judge Wolverton sustained Commis sioner Watson's contention that the credentials of the company to operate in Oregon were insufficient to entitle it to a certificate from the department of corporations. THE CASE AGAINST RICHARDS DISMISSED The cas of the state against J. M. Kichards, of Portland, the man who is alleged to have circulated the "A. P. A." petition, was dismissed today on a motion of District Attorney Kingo, on the grounds of insufficient evidence. Kichards was indicted by the grand jury at its last session on the testimony of li. II. McMahon and it was charged in the indictment returned July 3 that he "unlawfully printed and circulated a circular relating to the primary elec tion and certain candidates, not bear ing on its face the name of the author, printer and publisher." This waa held to be in violation of the corrupt prac tices act and Kichards was arrested in Portland and released upon $250 bail, which he furnished. L. H. McMahan was a candidate for the nomination l'or governor at the re cent primary election, and it is said that he claimed that the circulation or this so-called "A. P. A." ticket was instrumental in defeating him for the nomination. After the indictment, however, it ap pears from tne district attorney that McMahan lost interest in the case and he has failed to produce the evidence promised, aud as a result Mr. Dingo made the motion today to dismiss the case. ' The ca:e of the state against Stanley Mi.Ier was' also dismissed on the grounds Of insulficient evidence. This is an old caa that has been on the books since Gail H. Hill was prosecut ing attorney.

Von Wicgand.) Berlin. July 27. A conference which may depend war or peace for all Europe was in progress nt Potsdam to- j day. Messagos from every old-world cnpi tal indicated a belief thnt tho kaiser alone, if anyone, can avert the blood iest struggle in the world 's history. His majesty arrived by special train, traveling at torrific speed, from Kiel, where ho landed following the abrupt termination of his cruiso in Norwegian waters. At the station ho was met by the crown prinee and three members of his cabinet. A throng of his subjects had also gathered to greet him. As he ap peared tho crowd burst into "Die Watch Am Khine." Ttte Kaiser arove to the palace, through packed streets, receiving a tremendous ovation. All Are for War. The war Bpirit was rampant in Ber lin. The streets were thronged. There were the wildest "hochs" f the kai ser, the crown prince, Austria and the fatherland. Tka Pt.atnnn anrl Hnrvinii embnssinfl were guarded by strong forces of po- j lice. Demonstrations were attemptcu against them yesterday, but tho police quickly suppressed them. General Von Moltke, the chief of the army staff, who was visiting in Carls bad, had returned in not haste. It was reported nn army mobilization order would be issued today. The statement was made on semi official authority that the foreign of fice had notified Russia that Austria's and Servia 's troubles were between those two countries alone and that there must be no intercfernco between them. It was believed that the kaiser would personally urge the czar to keep out of the controversy. His majesty, who has been in Scan dinavian waters, and President Poin carc of France, who has been visiting in Stockholm, were reported to have had a conference Sunday. Carlsbad and other German and Aus trian pleasure anil health resorts were practically deserted. Industr.es were virtually suspended for lack of men, be cause of the mobilization order. Ger mans abroad were hurrying home to join their regiments. England Dreads War. (By Ed L. Keen.) London. July 27. The British gov ernment was making frantic diplomatic efforts today to avert a general Euro pean war. Kine Georee, who was to have at tended the George Wood races, cancel ed bis engagement and remained at Buckingham palace to be in constant touch with tho situation. Foreign Minister Sir Edward Grey had already suggested to France, Ger many and Italy a plan of mediating with the British ambassadors in raris, Berlin and Rome. These diplomats wore said to be of the opinion that no step had yet been taken which rendered the arbitration impossible. Though it was said Sunday that Aus tria actually had declared war, this was denied in official circles here to- day. There had not, it was asserted, been an official declaration, There naturally were many rumors in circulation, and it was difficult either to verify or disprove them owing to the strictness of the censorship at all continental capitals, especially Vienna, Belgrade and St. Petersburg, the three places whence the most important news BLOODIEST STRUGGL WORLD (Continued on page 2.)

I Not only had Italy agreed to England's proposition for an ef fort at mediation between Aus tria, Servia and Russia, but fav vorablo answers had been re ceived from France and Ger many. The situation was still, how ever, deemed critical. THE STORY TOLD BRIEFLY. War clouda hung low over turope today. Austria was massing troops on the Servian frontier. To check them Servians dynamited the bridge across the River Save, the international boundary A fight had occurred between Ser vians on shore and an Austrian troop ship on the Danube. Another fight was reported (it the month of the River Temes, near Bel grade, the Servian capital. Belgrade had been evacuated, Nish, in the Interior, being made temporary capital. The Servian army was mobilizing under Crown Prince Alexander. It was announced Austrian troops would not occupy Belgrade today, pre sumably to give Germany time td strive for localizing the war. A Russian army mobilization order was reported to have been issued. The czar was firm In his determina tion to aid Servia against Austria. The Russian minister of war was quoted ' In Washington as saying Russo-Austrian war was Inevitable. The Russian general strikers went back to work, that their government might not be hampered during the for eign crisis. I England announced it would be neu tral as between Austria and Servia, but that Its position would be "critical" if another power in terf erred. At the same time the English asked the Germans, French and Italians to loin them in mediation efforts. Italy, most unwilling to be engaged with the allies Germany and Austria in a war against England, France and Russia, accepted the ngland In vita tion.

This was made plain here today by President Wilson in his audience with the newspaper correspondents. He said he thought it would be unwise to dis cuss European developments at this time, and refused to comment upon the possibility of a general war in -.he event of Austria opening hostilities against Servia. Asked regarding a report that the senate foreign relations committee had decided to sidetrack all of Secretary Nicaragua and Colombian pacts, thel nmmi.ii.nt axiii he nan not Deen imormeu of any such action, and did not believe it would be taken. He said ne proposed to use all possible influence to get ac tion on the treaties. The president denied that hi was tir ing of the heat here or that We Intend ed to go to Cornish, N.

Two Important Austrian provinces . Bosnia and Herzegovina originally were Scrvias. Many years ago they passed to Tur-, key. The war of 1878 loosened Tur- . key's grip. The sultan retained a nom- . inal suzerainty but the provinces were under Austrian supervision. It was plain they must pass ultimate. ' ly altogether out of Turkey's hands. ' When this happoned Bervu nopeu io acquire them again. A Urge share of their people, being Servians, wanted this to happen. In 1908 Austria, however, suddenly annexed both provinces. This was a dreadful blow to Servian ambitions, but Servia was not strong enouga to re sist and Russia had not then sufficient ly recovered from the effects of the war with Japan to render any aid. Austria Robbed Servia, Servia had another ambition, An in land country, it was compelled to trade through Austrian ports on terms un favorable to Servian commerce. The Servians longed for a seaport. In the Balkan war they fought their way to tho Adriatic. Instead of per mitting them to retain a port, however, Austria organized the kingdom of Al bania, shutting them in again. The Servians blamed Archduke Fran cis Ferdinand, heir to the. Austrian throne, for this anti-Servian policy.

The substance of its demand on Ser via was that the persons said to have -been implicated in the assasmnation plot be punished ana tn.it ine ran-oervmu organization be suppressed. Servia did not answer as Austria ae- sired and the latter declared war. The Servians are of the same race as the Russians. Both for racial reasons, from political nmtives growing out of Servia 's geo graphical position and because Russia is jealous of Austria, the czar is Ser via 's friend and protector. Servia could not fight. Austria alone but all indications are that Russia will come to Servia's aid. Germany is Austria's ally, and its in terests are so interwoven with Austria's that an Austrian success or reverse, would be correspondingly a success m i reverse for Germany. It is doubtful it Austria could stand long against Rus sia, but if Russia were to attack Aus- tria, Germany certainly would come to aid. France Forced in. France is Russia 's ally. It is, besides, Germany's hereditary enemy, and it longs to recover Alsace-Lorraine, wrest ed from it by Germany as a result of the Franco-PruBsian ,war.
