SERIOUS RIOTING AT JAUREZ OVER ORDERS MEXICANS MUST B A THE British Claim Victories. London, Jan. 29. Allied victories on five different fronts were cited today as another evidence of the new policy of utmost co-operation and co-ordination t effort among the nations of the en tente. British, French, Serbian and liussian troops each won distinctive victories ip every field of fighting save the South African ang Egyptian and there was no report from these two theatres of ac tion. Most spectacular of the victories re ported was Russia's smashing of two miles of German front, along the Ru manian .arpatuian uue. The czar's forces assumed the offensive despite uitieriy com wcatner and snow exact ly the sort of weather that has forced a practical stoppage of the German cam paign in Rumania recently.

El Paso, Texas, Jan. 29 Anti-American feeling, which cropped out in riot ing yesterday at the Juarez end of the international bridge when 400 Mexican women stormed American street cars driving oft the crews, was still appar ent today. Few Americans ventured across the bridge todav. while the street car company prepared to resume inter-city service after a 24 hour inter ruption. Federal authorities announced todav that one Mexican was shot and killed during the riot yesterday and several others were slightly injured. David MeChesney, an American reporter, was caught in the crowd, the women tearing his clothing and scratching his face and shouting "kill the m-intro! " Dnrino upon our lines, the rioting some women shouted "viva lUal Death to the Americans!" As a result of the outbreak the stew ards of the Juarez race track, owned by Americans, issued a statement that rac ing had been discontinued for the sea son as "a precautionary measure."

More than 400 women employed at this side of the border gathered at the interna tional bridge. Under the new order they were not allowed to cross until 7 a. m. and then only after rigid inspec tion. Not understanding the regulations, tne women vented their anger upon the officials. The crowd of women rapidly developed into a mob. Some of the women lay upon the street car tracks to prevent the cars from moving; while others smashed car windows and drove off the American crews, hissing at the ' ' gringoes-' ' Carraur.ista officers rode into the crowd, brandishing their swords in an attempt to quell the riot. A United States mail wagon which tried to cross the bridge was turned back: For more than an hour the port was closed, no person being allowed to cross either way. The rioting continued for two hours. At noon, although the street cars were recovered, the service wag not resumed and the race meet at Juarez was called off. Crowds gathered at both ends of tne international bridge all day. While the riot was at its height, An dres Garcia, Carranza consul general, drove across the bridge in an automo bile and harangued the women. FISK TESTIFIES IN IEAK INQUIRY G PRICE TWO CENTS &NSJ?

While denying all knowledge of a leak or a deal with McAdoo, Fisk ad mitted previous close business relations with the secretary. Lawsou 's testimony quoting Archi bald White as saying Fisk had boasted of having control over McAdoo was hot ly denied and provoked this outburst from Fisk: "This statement of Lawsou 's about an alleged interview with Archibald White has gone broadcast, and 1 think that Mr. Lawson should be taken at his word and be put behind the bars for perjury for wantonly using a repu table name nB he diamine.

At that time McAdoo turned over his securi ties mostly bank stock and secured a $1 12,000 loan. This was liquidated bv January 1, 1911, and since then, Fisk said, there had been no dealings be tween the two except perhaps "a triv ial thousand or two dollars, such as getting something for his (McAdoo 's) children. ' ' "I have leaned backward not to have any relations with the secretary that is, not to make any requests," said Fisk.

Many wooden struct ures built by the American troops were set on fire as the movement northward started. Nearly one hundred American colon ists in the territory occupied by Gen eral Pershing's men reached Juarez lat last night, fleeing in fear of the band its. They abandoned their farms and homes as the American iroop movement began, bringing the s.ory of the burn ing of supplies. When the refugees left Casus Grandea big fires had already been started and the troop movement had been under way gradually for two days.

Berlin, via wireless to the United Press, Jan. 29. Whero one vear ago Dr. Dryander, the "quiet, white haired man," who is court preacher, pleaded for an hour for peace in the services marking the kaiser's birthday, this year his sermon was a fiery defense of Ger many 's cause and a militant plea for C-erniany to steel herself for the de cisive battle which everyone believes is coming. In this changed spirit he re flected the sentiment of the German people. His sermon of Saturday has evoked the deepest approval every where.

BIG CABINET SHIFT IS PREDICTED IN New Men Are Likely to Take Charge of Several Im portant Portfolios By Robert J. Bender (United Press staff correspondent) Washington, Jan. 29. A big cabinet shift will lake place early in Presi dent. Wilson's second term, it was learn ed today. This will be in addition to the diplomatic shakoup which will take place about March 4 or very soon there after. These expected cabinet changes, how ever, will not begin, it is believed, un ci "vini inonuis ,-urer tne president s intoxicating liquor into the state of Oregon. Bef reshed from the work of last week by an over Sunday rest and trip up the valley to the state university, the mem bers of the house assembled this morn ing primed for going after the bill, lhat the measure would receive soino opposition developed before much head way was made in the discussion. II required Ben Huntington, reading clerk, just 50 minutes to read the meas ure from start to finish, which, at tho average rate of reading 100 words a, minute, makes the document about fife thousand words long. The members and a large number of the visitors were sup plied with extra copies of the bill so that, the reading could be followed. Long before the time for opening tho morning session, the people began to fill the lobby until when the session was called to order by Speaker Stanficld the. lobby was filled. Much interest was manifest in the fate of this measure al though it is practically certain t pas If the discussion progresses this after noon at the rate it did this inurniiii? it i.i in- uuc louny oeiore a final vote is takeu. Dr. Anderson Explains. After the reading of the bill, Dr. An derson, father of the bill, explained its provisions. "The problem of the liquor traf fie," said Dr. Anderson, "has a direct or indirect effect on every man, wo man or child in the state. If this bill is passed it will have a bonefioiaJ effect on the children yet unborn. The meas ure demands unbiased consideration. ' ' In 1011 the people passed a law pro hibiting the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquor. In the 1915 session of the legislature I had the honor of presenting the measure that, became the low operating to put the will of tho peo ple in effect. In 1916 the people passed mi amendment to the constitution ntn- hiblting the importation of liquor, aud this bill is the machinery to put that amendment into effect. "l believe the bill expresses the will of the people aa expressed at the last election, and I hope it will pass. " In explaining further the portions of various sections, he said that the five days of grace allowed after the bill goes into effect was inserted so that ship ments ordered before the bill went ioto effect could be delivered. This was u concession to the large number of peo ple who have ordered shipments that re quire from three to five days to be de livered after ordered- Howevor, after that term of grace, common carriers that have shipments that cannot be d,- nuvuu inauguration, in all cases, it isiiivereo legally are required to transport said, the cabinet rcsiirnntiunu t.. ,.i,nn, the same mttaiAa th..

An inquest into the death of the four children, taken from the partly burned home of S. A. Hewett, at Auburn, with their skulls crushed, is being held at Auburn today, while the father is confined in the county jail at Seattle, awaiting the findings of the coroner's jnry. Hewett was arrested, following the discovery by officers of a bloodstained hammer and a bottle believed to have contain ed chloroform behind the bed of one of tha little victims. Officers also said they found evidence that the walls and the two beds where the children had slept, had been soaked with kerosene. Hewett, 28 years old, a switchman in the Auburn railroad yards, claims the fire was caused by the overturning Of a kerosene lamp early Sunday morning. Ho explained that one of tho children became ill during the night. He said he went in to attend to the little one, taking a lamp with him. Then he left the room leaving the lamp burning on a chair between the two beds. Feeling restless, he said he went out for a short walk. When he returned he fell into a sound sleep, being awakened some time later by the crackling of flames in the children's room. He found it im possible to save them, he said, and rushed next door to the home of Charles Mr. Lafferty Objects. Representative I.afferty, of Benton county, said that two years ago he was on the committee on alcoholic traffie and he appreciated the high character and integrity of Dr. Anderson but dif fered from him in many respects con cerning the present bill. One of Mr. Lafferty s objections to the provisions of the bill was that it qualified all portions of its statements except regarding religious and fraternal orders. In hia opinion the lack of a def inite definition concerning the religious orders and fraternal associations was a serious defect and opened up a loop bote wh.reby "brothers" in a fraternity could use liquor to their heart's con tent.

When the members - of the voluntary fire department reached the Hewett home, they saw Hewett spraying water into the death chamber of his house with a garden hose.
