The ambassador was enthusiastic as

gram.) C. F. Reavis, Nebraska con
gressman, inarched with the Wash
ington delegation in the Elks' parade
today. Nebraska lodges failed to
enter, although some lodges had one
man representations. The marshal of
the parade stated that the several Ne
braska representatives here felt that
as they were neither very small or
very large in numbers, they would
help 'the parade more by boosting it
from, the curb. One hundred and
twenty-five thousand persons wit

OIL INSPECTION FEE
Referee Morning Holds Law Is
Revenue Producer and
SUSTAINS STANDARD OIL
Lincoln, Neb., July 14. In a report
filed this evening with the supreme
court, W. M. Morning, the referee
appointed by the court, declares the
inspection fee imposed by the state
against the Standard Oil company is
illegal and recommends that the in
junction suit instituted by Attorney
General Reed to prevent the oil com-
pany from refusing to pay the inspec
tion fee be denied.
Referee Morning says in his report
that the state for more than fifteen
yearshas been collecting more than
double the cost of actual inspection,
and that the profit to the state lias
been so unreasonably large that the
practical operation of the law has
been that of a revenue measure rather
than of a legitimate inspection enact
ment. His report sustains the contentions
of the'Standard Oil company and
other oil companies that ceased pay
ing fees on the ground that the in
spection law is in reality a revenue
law, and therefore void because it vio
lates the constitutional provision pro
viding for equal taxation.
He sustains the contention of the
oil company that the section of the
state oil law fixing a fee should be
adjudged null and void and that the
state of Nebraska and its officers be
perpetually restrained from enforcing
the collection of the present oil in
Diamonds, it is Said
London. July 14. It has been
learned from a good source, says
Reuter's Amsterdam correspondent
in a dispatch today, that the principal
object of the voyage of the German
commercial submarine Deutschland
to the United States was to convey
a cargo of- diamonds which it had
been hitherto impossible to export.

"Battle of Europe"
London, July 14. There was very
little news today of the "battle of Eu

describe the new co-ordinated en
tente allied offensive on all fronts.
But the British official statement to
night shows that heavy infantry and
artillery fighting has been in progress
and has enabled the British to main
