wer so far aa officials can Judge from
the unofficial text received here.
American officials believed that taking
as a basis ths official statement of the
Austr'an admiralty that the Aneona was
shelled, torpedoed and sunk while pas
sengers were still aboard, there would
be little room for discussion of Secretary
Lansing's contention, that the commander
violated the principles of International
law and humanity, and that it was
"wanton slaughter of defcnseloss non
combatants.' Break Beeme Probable.
Officials pointed out today that a thor
oughly unsatisfactory and unresponsive
reply from Austria - Would bring diplo
matic relations betweea the two countries
to a dials because of ithe closing words
of Secretary Lansing's note.' which de
clared that "good relations between the
two countries rest upon a common regard
for law and humanity," and that Austria,
appreciating the gravity of the case,
"will accede to Its (ths United States)
demand promptly." '
Specifically the note demanded de
nouncing the sinking of the Aneona aa
an "illegal and undefennlble act," pun
ishment of the commander who "perpe
trated the deed," and payment of an in
demnity to those Americans who suf
fered. The note stands aa ths most vigor
ous of all the American correspondence
of the war and was not equalled even by
the note at the close of the submarine
controversy with Germany.

Board of Control of North Dakota,

J. P. Larson, also of Mott, N. D., gave
a paper showing the success of the equity
exchange for his home community. "We
organised one." he said, "and In 1913, the
first year, handled 2G:.flOO bushels of
grain, making a net profit of $9,000; In
1913 we handled 1SO.00O, there being a
lighter crop, and made a net profit of
.00; In 1!14 we bought another elevator
and handled 180,000 bushels of grain,
making a net profit of $19,000. while a
lumber yard we started in connection
with it made a good profit also.
le Not Speculation.
"It has been charged, in view of the
profits we make, that we are gambling
