dispatches by the Swedish charge at
Buenos Aires, Washington officials

The Westwego had an experience
with a German submarine .before the
.United Stages entered the war, hav
ing been attacked by one January 1
last while off the coast, of England.
It was proceeding from an American
port with a cargtf.of oil for Europe
when a submarine' fired five shots at
it from astern. , ( ,
The Westwego' s captain, J. C. Mul
coy, brbught.'liis vessel te a stop
and sent a boat with his papers,
whereupon- the German submarine
commander : demanded supply of
oil, threatening to sink the ship if
his demands were not complied with.
The submarine commander also de
manded that the vessel's $1,000,000
cargo ;o(. ; gasoline be thrown over
board, saying he would give Captain
MulceVItititit the next morning to
comply. Four barrels ol cylinder oilT
, were sent to the submarine and the
Westwego proceeded. It saw no more
of the submarine.
. The Westwego an oil tank steam
er, was built in Germany in 1914 for
Roumanian "Utcount under the name
of the $teauna Romans. Later its
registry was changed to American
and afterward its name was made
Westwego; vThe vessel was of 3.059

, how-tli e German charge, Count Lux

closed by his dispatches, and an in

The foreign minister denied abso

as stated by Luxburg, or made any

to insure a big victory for the liberal

Troops Loyal to Korniloff.
By order of Premier Kerensky the
railroad track between Luga and Pe
trograd has been turned up in places,
gangs being engaged oii the work all
night. On fhe Petrograd side of
Luga are forces which so far have
stood firm for the government.
General Korniloff's main support
appears to be the so-called "sikaya,"
or "savage division," whichwas for
merly stationed at Pokoff and con
sists of Georgians and other Cauca
sus tribesmen, who are personally de
voted to Korniloft as a result of his
life-long interest in Asiatic affairs.
With this force are Tekke cavalry
men from the trans-Caspian territory,
whose wild appearance created a sen
sation when they accompanied Gen
eral Korniloff to Moscow conference.
According to the evening papers,
the "savage division" has occupied
Vuiritsa on the Windau-Ruibins rail
road. German Intrigue Succeeds.

Kerensky Issues Proclamation.
Premier Kerensky today issued a
proclamation to the army, the fleet
and the nation, also to the committee
of the army at the front, outlining
the attempted'eoup of General Korni
loff through Vladimir Nicolaievitch
Lvoff arid the measures that had been
taken as a result . Regarding General
Lokomsky, the premier says:
"The chief of staff, General Lokom
sky, also proved a traitor. He re
fused to carry out the provisional
government's order to assume com
mand of the armies in view of Korni
loff's . dismissal, indicating to the
provisional government the possibil
ity of civil war at the front, the open
ing up of the front to the Germans
and the conclusion of a separate
peace. The government is in full
agreement with the executive of the
workman's and soldiers' deputies for
taking measures for the crushing of
the counter revolutionary plot insti

Protecting Our Patrons
-and the authorities feel that
have, in the past, occasionally gained entrance to resi
dences by presenting themselves as. meter readers or
the like, the people should thoroughly satisfy them
selves as to strangers' identity before admitting
them to the premises.'
Virtually this sam6 fctory appears from time to time in the big
city newspapers over the country as miscreants hit upon this method
..of making their way, unchallenged, into likely houses.
It is, perhaps, the fact that many a housewife instinctively senses
the danger, of some such plot by a prowler, and therefor is a bit in
clined to look upon any stranger with suspicion, more particularly one
in the rough and ready garb of a workman, who appears at her door
to request admission.
While there has been no local case of depredation such as out
lined above for an agreeably long time, Your Electric Service Com
pany desires to relieve the housewife of any possible uneasiness upon
the approach of its representatives, and to this end has furnished each
.outside employee a badge' which is a positive identification, as well
as a guarantee of the wearer's honesty and tnistwoitbiness.
In yet another way have we standardized the very appearance
of our service. Every vehicle in the large number which comprise
its "fleet" has been painted artillery gray, and may be readily
recognized thereby. Your Electric Service Company is plainly in
scribed upon its sides, and when such vehicle halts before the door,
and its driver wears the Nebraska Power Company badge, there need
be no uneasiness in allowing him access to the premises in accord
ance with his line of duty.
These are but two of the many ways in which we are safe-guard-.
ing our partners.
