General Pershing Report Bet
ter reeling Along Hii Line
Toward U. S. Troops.
Washington, July 13. General
, Penning reported today thtt it' was
generally believed both by Mexicans.
, and foreigner! along the line of com
munication of his expedition that a
crisis between the United States and
Mexico had been averted and that this
had brought about a mew friendly re
lationship between the Americans and
Mexicans. -; .
"Mexicans in this vicinity and along
'the railroad," the dispatch said, "are
reported very friendly toward Amen
cans in the last few days. It is gen
erally believed that trouble between
the United States and Mexico has
been settled. The rainy season ii on
in earnest, heavy rains being reported
from the various stations along the
lire during the last few days. Will
report within cday or two effect of
, rain upon roads and general pros-
pects regarding road maintenance."
' Customs collectors along the bor
" der have been instructed upon request
of the State, department to permit
railroad rolling stock' to enter Mex
ico by equitable exchange of cars. For
every ear permitted to enter Mexico,
the order stipulates that car from
Mexico shall enter American terri
tory. The collectors also are instruct
ed not to interfere further with ship
ments of food and Clothing into Mex
ico. It il understood, however, that
the present method of handling war

til further notice.
that other bothersome questions
might arise in connection with the
undersea boat's visit.
Already it was said consideration is
being given to a suggestion that the
government should withhold news of
the boat's sailing, to prevent further
information from reaching the allies.
The department Is concerned, too, as
to the boat's treatment if discovered
by enemy cruisers in th Atlantic.
Under a rulina that' the vessel is a
merchant craft the Stat department
could not eountentnct it sinking in
violation of international law.
Will Not Bnd Blockade.
' Amsterdam, July 11 (Via Lon
don.) Discussing the voyage of the
German submarine Deutschland, the
Deutsche Tage Zeitung of Berlin
lays: ,
' ''We German should not hope for
too much from the voyage of the
Deutschland to America. That th
vessel would be able to force the
blockade was to be expected; further
more, Great Britain will not be able
to do much against auch transport
service in future. But it is too 'much
to expect that the British blockade
of Germany -will bt ended by ) this
means. , -
"We- expect th arrival of the
Deutschland and other vessels of
similar construction will cause a
Jrtat sensation in America and pro
uce laudatory newspaper articles, but
Germany will not be justified on that
account in drawing the conclusion
that thia will change America' atti
tude toward this country, An Ameri
can remain what he is, no matter
bow he expresses his surprise." "
Germany the conviction that the Ger
man armies cannot be beaten in the
- field, and that the allies cannot ex-
! hauat German resources, Money and
men teemed to be plentiful, he said,
and an American living in Berlin as
serted there were hundred of thou
sand of men, trained to th minute,
who had not yet been on any firing
line. Extremists of the "war party
were most confident in their military
claims. They -asserted that they had
no fear of the English or Russian
armies, because of their deficiency in
, trained officers.
It is aid Dr. Aked found little
sentiment favoring the United States
as a mediatory agent. There i strong
feeling in Germany against th United
States, engendered partly, of course,
by the submarine controversy.
Sharp Conflict Among Germans.
Dr. Aked interviewed in Germany a
number of men who last July issued
a protest against the suggested an-
nexation of Belgium. Thia protest
v described annexation a a political
blunder fraught with grave conse
quence and calculated not to
strengthen but fatally to weaken the
German empire and further stated:
"We subscribe to the principle that
the policy of annexation in the case
of peoples accustomed to political in
dependence ia to be dejected."
"This utterance is a voice that noth
ing can ailence," said Dr. Aked. "But,
of course, these moderate men are
not the only men of influence in Ger
many and will not have matters their
own way when it comes to a settle-
' ment Between the moderate men
and the war party, there is constant
strife, s The continuance of the war,'
th nature and conduct of the war,
are issues sharply drawn between a
'better Germany' and the 'war party.'
It is really of more importance to the
world a to which of these parties
shall win in Germany than the more
popular question of who will be vie
, torlous in the trenches. If the jingoes
win, the world will have to deal with
very different Germany a Germany
? lushed with victory and uncompro
mising in it triumph, or else the
world must look with anguish upon
year of fiercer war, while the best
fruit of civillxation are- utterly
destroyed." r
Dr. Aked said he found much to
encourage him, however, a to Ger
many' possible attitude after the war
toward arbitration, "as a law above
the sword." .. .,. ',. ,

Doctor! Say the City Need to
Be Cleaned Up and Kept
Clean to Avoid Epidemic,
"Omaha has not at yet developed
a case of Infantile paralysis," said one
of Omaha's leading physicians to The
Bee, "but we are not immune. Con
ditions that exist here are such as to
Invite the disease, and we may have
recurrence of the epidemic that pre
vailed only a few years ago. I do

Precaution Against Disease.

''Disinfection should be thoroughly
carried out. For washing hands and
clothing add two teasooonsful of ear
bollc acid, 95 per cent, to one quart of
water, or two teaspoonsful ot torma

"When the nurse leaves the sick

"All clothes, and bed clothe be

"All eating utensils or remnants of

"All milk bottles received at the

'The- remainder of the family
should take frequent baths and use
hydrogen peroxide, one teaspoonful

ihe house should be keot as free
from dust as possible by sprinkling
the floor before sweeping and by using

All doat. cats or other nets should

Take No Chance,
Other Omaha physicians discussed
tne situation in the east and several
suggested courses to be pursued by
towans in guarding against infection.
una said:
"If a child has a fever that may be
indigestion or summer intestinal
trouble, or any less harmful or con
tagious disease, he should be Isolated
at once and a physician called. It It
not always necessary to do this, as a
motner generally knows how to treat
a minor illness of her baby, but in
view of the epidemic it is the only
mo war. m m icw unya yie pnysi'
cian can ascertain whether th ail
ient is infantile paralysis and steps
can be taken accordingly.. The par
alysis Shows up within two or three
days after the fever develops. Pre
vious to that the disease seems to be
areatlv like a number of other chil
dren's diseases. That is why it is
aimcuii to control.
Not a New Disease.
"Infatile paralysis is not a new dis-
ease. Well informed physicians have
known about it for many years. It
doe not seem to be more prevalent
now than formerly, but that may
teem to be true merely because we
are making greater efforts to combat
it. Scientists are working day and
night to discover the origin and cure
of the disease. There is no cure now.
All we can do Is isolate and prevent
the spread of the plague.
