WAR OF NATIONS AS
WELL ASOF ARMIES
Germany is Considering Elab
orate Plan of Mobilising and
A7FECTS MEN 17 TO 60
London, Nov., 24. The German
auxiliary service bill s considered by
Secretary of the Interior von Loebell
as surpassing in importance all pre
vious war measures, according to an
Amsterdam dispatch to Reiner's it
scribing the debate on the bill before
. the main committee of the Reichstag.
Secretary von Loebell opened the
debate on the bill, which provides for
the services of all men from 17 to 60.
He said that besides the millions
whom it would render liable to ser-
' vice in the army, it would affect 3,
00O.UU0 others to be called upon for
other services in this war which "is
not only a war of armies, but a war
' of political economy, a war of na
tions.". Positive Lack of Labor. .
, Explaining that the object of the
bill was the mobilization of labor, the
ministed declared that instead of the
lack of employment which prevailed
at the beginning of the war, there was
now a positive lack of labor, especial
ly in the manufacture of munitions
and war material of all kinds. He
said the bill is intended to1 assure the
.sustenance of the laboring popula-
: tion and that compulsion would only
s be used as a last resort and was not
.needed for women.
"The bill must prove to the whole
world," he said, "Germany's determi
nation to fight with all its forces to
the uttermost." . t
General Grouner pointed out that
tha exertions ot the Britisa ministry
of munitions necessitated -a consider
able increase in the manufacture of
munitions in Germany. He explained
that the bill proposed to add to the
amy all men liable for service who
had hitherto been regarded as inauv
pensable at home.
Second Examination in Franca.
Paris, Nov. 24. The minister of
war has introduced a bill in the cham
ber of deputies by which all persons
exempted from military service or
, mustered out as physically , unfit prior
to April 1, 1916, must submit to a
further medical examination
During1 the first period of the war
' the main object in recruiting was not
to overcrowd the depots and conse
quently xmly the strongest men were
taken. The minister believes that of
several hundred thousand thus ex
empted, an appreciable number will
be found on a less perfunctory medi
cal examination to be capable of en
rollment for non-combat services at
''least.: " ' i ". " 'V '' .

MAIL ORDERS RECEIVE OUR PROMPT ATTENTION
Carranza consulates, said today he
had had nothing from Chihuahua City
in reference to General Ozuna, who
pursued the bandits with cavalry last
night, but he added that it was prob
able the cavalry commander had re
turned to the capital during the night
A number of foreigners who arrived
on a passenger train from Chihuahua
City early today said the five Ameri
can families remaining in Chihuahua
City had entrained to come to the
border when they reached a decision
among themselves to remain and left
the tram, returning to their homes.
A refugee who arrived on the train
said the Americans were warned by
an American friend the perils of the
trip to Juarez were great and if the
bandits attacked the train no Ameri
cans would be spared. Because of
this warning, the Americans left the
train and returned to their homes, the
refugee said. It was denied any Car
ranza omciais or officers warned the
Americans not to leave.
General Francisco Gonzales, com
mander of the Juarez brigade, today
said the report Villa had been wound
ed, that his force had entered the city
anu were ngnting in tne streets was
absurd, as he said he knew everything
which came from Chihuahua City over
tne telegraph lines and no such mcs
sage had been received. He added
that General Trevino was nersonallv
directing the fighting, but said no de
tails had then been received of the
second day's battle.
Americans here today claimed to
have information that the Villa forces
have reached Nombre de Dios, a small
river which ! parallels the Mexican
Central railroad to the northeast of
Chihuahua City- The fighting is said
to have become general outside the
city. The same Americans claim to
have information that Villa is gaining
ground and that the attack of yes
terday was a feint to draw out the
Carranza garrison in that direction in
order that the attack from other di
rections could be made.

London, Nov. 24. Virtual comple

Berlin. Orsova and Turnu-Severein,
on the Danube, have been captured
by the Austro-German forces which
have broken the resistance "of the

Approaching Alt Valley.
Pushing eastward from the Jiul val
ley after their capture of Craiova, the
Austro-German forces are now an
nounced as approaching the Alt val
ley. It is along this valley that the
Roumanians apparently have elected
to make their next stand. Bucharest
yesterday reported a withdrawal of
the Roumanians from the Jiul region
and announced they were holding
their own in the Alt valley.
simultaneously a movement has
been started, presumably by the Bul
garians, which may prove of notable
imDortance. Bucharest renorts an
attempt by hostile forces to cross the
Danube at Zimmtza, thirty-rive miles
southwest of Giurgiu, on the railroad
leading to Bucharest. This move, if
successful, would mean cutting, in far
behind the present Roumanian line
along the Alt. Zimnitza is seventy
miles southwest of Bucharest.
Counter Move in Dobruja.
On the other hand the Russians
have made a counter move in Do

they are pushing south and have
reached Lake Tashaul, about twelve
miles north of Constanza, which is
the Black Sea terminal of the railroad
from Tchernavoda, and have crossed

Red Oak, la., Nov. 24. (Special
Telegram.) Edward H. Landers, a
real estate dealer of Shenandoah, was
on the witness stand all morning to
day in the Jones-Wilkerson damage
suit for $60,000. He stated that he
was visiting his mother in Villiscx- at
the time of the Joe Moore murder,
and that on the night of the murder
he and his wife went past the Moore
home about 8:15 o'clock and saw a
man go in the house. When asked to
state who that man was, he paused
a long time and then said, "I don't
care to say."
Upon repeated urging by Attorney
Mitchell, he finally said, "I thought
this man. to, be Albert Jones." On
cross-examination he stated that so
far as he was concerned he was en
friendly terms with Albert Jones at
the present time. He said also that
he was a witness at the inquest over
the murdered victims, but that he did
not, at that time, relate the incident
of seeing Jones enter the ' Moore
house, sjiving as his reason that he
was not at that time certain about it.
Detective J. H. Wilkerson went on
the stand when court convened this
afternoon and the entire afternoon was
taken up with his recital of the story
of the murder plot, as told by Mrs.
Vina Tompkins on the stand last
week, the story of the murder and the
arrest of William Mansfield. (
