BOY KILLED BY AUTO
ON FARM STREET
Wm. Oorham, Aged 9, Struck
by Machine Driven by
0. L. Lambert.
SKULL BADLY FRACTURED
Four men walked into the police
station soon after 9 o'clock last eve
ning, two of them were dazed and
half crying and the others had bloody
shirt fronts.
One of the men was 1. O. (lorham.
whose 9-year-old son, William, had
been killed by an automobile at
Twenty-fifth avenue and Farnani
street less than an hour before.
Another member of this strange
group was . 1. Lambert, 1HU Lapi
tol avenue, who drove the car that
killed the boy.
The third was H. M. Binder, 2501
Farnam street, who saw the boy
crushed, picked him up and, in Lam
bert's car, rushed him to the Wise
Memorial hospital. The fourth was a
brother of Binder.
Stunned by Grief.
The four men stood in the station
until someone asked them what they
wanted, and then told their storv.
The boy had been struck, taken to
the hospital, had died, ..nd the coroner
had been notified. Yet the first news
the police had was when the prin
cipals in the tragedy told their story
to Captain Heitfeld..
The Gorham boy was going on an
errand with 14-year-old Lenora Bur
ton, who lives with the Gorhamt at
their home, 2901 Farnam street.
At Twenty-fifth avenue and Farnam
street an automobile was standing.
The two children started to cross the
street-in front of this standing car.
Wheel Goes Over, Shoulder.
Half way out they saw a street car
coming east. They started Lack.
Lambert was coming east also, nearly
abreast of the street car and at about
fifteen miles an hour, he said. The
boy was struck and one wheel went
over his shoulder.
Mr. Binder and h' brother picked
up the little victim, and Lambert, who
had stopped, carried them to Wise
Memorial hospital, only two blocks
away. "
The doctors there said the boy had
received a fracture at the base of the
srain and other injuries, which ren
dered death almost instantaneous.
Lamber was held in jail without
bond to await the verdict of the
coroner.

When the Coats Come Off
BRITISH GAINS OF
GRODNDARE SLIGHT
Correspondent in the German
Trenches Near Somme De
scribes Artillery Duels.
TRENCHES MADE USELESS
(Correspondnc of Ths Associated Press.)
German Trenches, Opposite the
British Position at Gommecourt,
Monday, Aug. 14. (Via Berlin and
Sayville Wireless, Aug. 17.) Half a
million British have been engaged in
the effort to break the German lines
on the Somme front. Often, as in
the fighting between Gommecourt and
Hebutorne, the British outnumbered
the Germans six to one. They have
gained ground to a depth of from
three to five miles over a front of
about eighteen miles, but nowhere
have been able to break through.
Shells Widen Trenches.
More than ever, death has become
commonplace in this most murderous
battle of all times. The Germans in
the first line know that they probably
will be killed if their positions are
attacked. Trenches are virtually use
less, for the heavy British shells
widen them into broad channels, af
fording no cover of any sort. The
first line usually perishes.
. The advancing British foot troops
are no better off, because the Ger
mans reverse the process when part
of their positions have been captured.
After the British artillery has leveled
the trenches, the infantry rushes in,
often to be thrown out again as soon
as the British artillery ceases fire,
which it has to do owing to the
proximity of the opposing lines. Thus
the battle has been going on for
weeks, the opposing forces now gain
ing, at terrific cost, and then losing
at even greater cost, a few yards of
trenches. At present all the fighting
by the British is carried on from their
Pozieres salient, where their drum
fire is unceasing day or night. Ger
man officers, who were in the Cham
pagne offensive, said no such artillery
fire ever had been developed pre
viously. German Fire Terrific. '
The German fire, too, is terrific.
An idea of its intensity may be gained
from the fact that on certain British
troops, German guns threw 1,600
shells in one minute and forty-five
seconds, resulting in great slaughter.
Ofter the British assault dies away
before the German second line, frcm
which machine guns pour out streams
of bullets which literally cut the men
into fragments. At one point the As
sociated Press corresoondent stood
within 800 yards "of the British
trenches near Delville wood. Nearby
the Germans had buried 1,600 British
as lulls in the firing permitted.
Some 500 British prisoners, whom
the correspondent saw behind the fir
ing line, were still dazed from the
shock. They were a sorry spectacle,
glad they had escaped from "hell,"
as they termed it.
Each Man His Own Leader.
The correspondent visited the en
tire front of the present offensive and
everywhere found from talks with
Germans that they were more de
termined than ever to stand their
ground. The men are in capital shape
physically and of easy mind, although
they are looking upon death each
time. An officer said each man is his
own leader, as it is often impossible
under the present battle conditions to
transmit commands. While the gen
erals might still plan the actions, the
officer said, it was plain that the in
fantryman, acting on his own initia
tive in the presence of death, must
save the day.
Back of the German lines, within
artillery range, hardly a single house
was standing. Embers were still burn
ing in the ruins of two villages as the
correspondent passed through. Of
ficers said there were no German
troops in such places and that the
victims were mostly French civilians.
Of these the correspondent saw scores
of wounded. Whenever possible, the
Germans removed the civilians, as at
Buoquoy. The population of this
town was sent out at 2 o'clock in the
morning and the bombardment began
at 1 o'clock. By noon the entire vil
lage was razed. The village of Ran
court met with a similar fate. The
correspondent saw part of the popu
lation rushing for safety, and a few
hours later looked on the burning de
bris of the town.
Girls Killed by Bombs.
British aviators have made attempts
to burn the grain crop, apparently un
mindful of the fact that it belongs to
French peasants. One aviator, de
scending to 800 yards from the
ground, threw bombs among a har
vesting party, killing two French
girls and wounding others.
There is no safety anywhere in the
zone behind the front. What the ar
tillery does not reach is exposed con
stantly to the bombs of aviators.
While the correspondent was at Bug
ny, eight civilians were killed. Eigh
teen others were wounded, of whom
four died in the German hospital the
same day. At Cambrai four persons
were killed and two wounded on the
same night. A French civilian pointed
out that, while the German soldiers
have built bomb-proofs in which to
seek refuge, the civilians have -only
cellars. He begged that this be
brought to the attention of the British
military authorities.
County Fathers Will
fix Tax Levy Friday
Douglas county commissioners will
fix the county tax levy at a special
meeting Friday morning, at which
time figures sunntied hv the state and
announced at Lincoln, Wednesday,
will be checked with records ot the

tixed at 6.1 mills, divided as follows:
State tenersl fund (mills) 8.4

it was 4.1 mills.
On a valuation of $51,514,445, as
placed by the assessor, Douglas
countv's actual valuation is more than
$257,000,000, or five times the assessed
valuation.

NATION BOUND TO
DISCHARGE DUTY
Hughes in Hia Portland Speeoh
Attacks the Policies That
Democrats Adopted.
REFERS TO PHILIPPINES
Portland. Ore.. Aua. 17. Charles
E. Hughes, before a large audience in I
the ice rink here tonight, assailcl the
democratic party for its pulley toward
he Philippines.
"We raumil afford in this country
to lose sin li t of nati.uiai o'niigalions, '
Mr. Hughes said. "Our friends on the
other side were almost ready to say
that we should abandon the Philip
pines. That was a matter of national
honor. We assumed obligations there
which we are bound .o discharge.
"It is not so much a matter til self
ii terest. 1 do not tare so much with
respect to the argument of self-interest,
hut when this nation undertakes
before the whole world a responsibil
ity, it must discharge it.
"And we ought not consider the sub
ject of scuttling out of the Philippines.
lo leave them in the predicament
which you know perfectly well with
out my describing it.
Need High Standards.
."We need more of a sense of ob
ligation, as individuals. If we have
the sense of national honor, a domi
nant consciousness of national unity,
a proper upbuilding policy of con
serving the opportunities of Ameri
can enterprise, we shall do well, hut
we need still more. We need, through
out our administrative departments,
high standards of public work. We
need efficiency in every department of
American government."
Mr. Hughes, speaking of the tariff,
referred to a letter written, he said?
by "an eminent democrat," July 28,
to the president of the Illinois Manu
facturers' association, in which it was
said that it "Ought to be possible to
make the question of duties merely a
question of progress and develop
ment." For Protective Tariff.
"I do not care whether this letter
is authentic or not," said Mr. Hughes.
"If it is not authentic, then the pro
vision of law is little more than a
sham. If it is authentic, it does not
represent the sentiment of the demo
cratic party."
The nominee reiterated his argu
ments for a protectice tariff, for com
mercial preparation, for co-operation
with Europe, for reasonable, adequate
preparedness, and repeated his dec
laration that the democratic party
was opposed to national progress.
"Why, if I were a member of that
party and I speak with all good na
ture, because we are threshing things
out here now and looked through
the platforms of the past, I should
feel that I was going through a
cemetery richly embellished with
monuments."
Mr. Hughes referred to the number
of unemployed in 1914, due largely, he
said, to the Underwood tariff.
All Tariff Experts.
"They knew why they were unem
ployed, he said. Every one of thein
was a taritf expert There were 300,.
000 unemployed tariff experts in the
city of New York alone.
"You can't :Jt American working
men along side of workingmen of
other countries who work at less
wages and expect the American work
ingmen to survive. You have got to
get down to the common basis of co
operation. It is perfectly idle to sup
pose you can have the American wage
scale and the American standard of
goods and let in goods made under a
lower standard of living without hurt
ing American enterprises and Ameri
can working men."
In reference, to Alaska Mr. Hughes
said:
"I would not have much confidence
in speaking of a new spirit in Ameri
can life if I did not believe in the
integrity of the business men of
America. I believe that we can do
things right in this country and de
velop our resources.' You have got
an empire in Alaska; I want to see it
developed; I want to see it developed
right.
i Time Has Now Come.
"I think the time has come when
we have got to be sure of ourselves,
sure of our integrity, confident and
equal to our emergencies.
"I have had something to do in my
life with correcting and preventing
abuses in connection with public mat
ters, and I tell you now my friends,
that whether I speak of Alaska, or
whether I speak of the tariff, no one
is going to pull any thing out at the
public expenses if I can prevent it.
"If I am charged with the high of
fice for which I am candidate, Mr.
Hughes said in closing, "to put my
principles to the test I am not afraid
of the test. I know what it means,
but my friends of Oregon, you who
mandamused me and made me become
a candidate at the primary against my
will, I have left the bench to under
take the active work of this campaign
with but one amhition.
"It is not an amhition to hold high
office. That h;..; no illusirns for me.
But I have the ambition to try, so (ar
as within me lies, to have efficient
American government worthy of
America's best capacity, and Ameri
ca's n unc honored throughout the
world."
Would Take Nine
Days to Sign Up
The Commissions
Washington, Aug. 17. Completion
of the reorganization measures au
thorized for the regular army under
the bill which became effective July
1. is being delayed by the fail thai
President Wilson has been unable to
find time to sign the thousand or
more officers' commissions which
have accumulated on his desk. Until
the commissions are signed the of
ficers have no authority to exercise
the functions of their new rank.
The tax upon the president's time
is so great that army officials have
recommended passage of a special act,
authorizing delegation of the power
to sign commissions to some other
person. That practice is followed in
the land office, and it has been pointed
out that it an army ot 500,000 vol
unteers were to be formed, with its
$0,000 officers, it would take the presi
dent, the secretary of war and the
adjutant general, the three officials
whose names must appear on com
missions, nine full working days each
to carry out their part in this purely
routine matter.
