Nebraskans in Camp Cody Say Army Life
In Far Away Deming Has Much of Lively
Interest, But a Week Seems Like Years
Way Down South in the Land
of Sage Brush, Young Men
Have 'Good Times, But
Often Think of Home.
BY A MACHINE GUN MAN.
Camp Cody, Deming, N. M., Sept.
23. (Special.) It has been but a
week since we'arrived in camp and in
some ways it seems like years. It has
been long enough for us to realize
that we're in the army now. That
means more than the restrictions and
hard work, too.
Way down here, 1,500 miles from
the folks, the real army spirit has en
tered into the men. The fellows who
have been there will understand, but
those who haven't can never know
just what, it means. ..'
This camp is a real place. Today
was play day and we looked it over.
About thirty-two-square miles are in
cluded within its boundaries and the
vasthess of the whole thing would, in
ordinary times, be hard to realize. As
it is it seems perfectly natural.
There are literally thousands of
tents, all in perfect alignment. Each
company has a large dining hall and
kitchen. There are hundreds of giant
motor trucks busy all day long carry
ing supplies... Over by the entrance to
the camp are great piles of cordwood
for the fires. Nearby are thousands
of bales of -straw and hay. In-fact
everything imaginable is here in vast
quantities, for it takes an-undreamed
of amount, of supplies to care for the
30,000 men who will be here.
Along Cody Avenue.
Cody avenue Is the main thorough
fare and extends from the entrance
to the west end of the camp. We are
about two miles from the eastern en
trance and . the road seems to run'
Straight into the setting sun. ; Cook
avenue branches: off Cody avenue &
few blocks from the eastern entrance
and runs northwest past the Fourth
Nebraska and the Minnesota troops.
The streets are dragged daily and are
like mecadamfced roads, except that
they are kept in better condition
than roads usually are. v '. -

there are ' hundreds of . contractors'
trucks and dump wagons. I noticed
one dump" wagon numbered 138. .The
contractors' trucks" . carrying the men
out to the .place Where construction is
going on, as well as hauling the ma
terjals used. One could hardly be
lieve that 'so many men could ride on
one of them. The very first one we
sav on ( our arrival, pujled, up, beside
our, train and f loaded up with lum
ber. There were thirty-four men on it.
They piled it full of boards and them
selves climbed aboard and drove mer
rily away over the sage brush. I've
seen others that I believe had more
than fifty men on them.
Life here has its ( hardships and
sometimes we're cussing every thing

More Evidence '
In von Eckhardt s
: Mexico City,' Mex-j-vSept., 27. It is
stated on. good authority that an in
vestigation here shows that the pas
sage of messages in German code'be
tween the German legation and Berlin
by way of the Swedish legation and
Stockholm, as revealed recently by
Secretary of State Lansing, extended
as far back as the early part of 1916.
It is also stated that these messages
were not confined to dispatches from
Henrich von Eckhardt, German min
ister, to Berlin, but that they con
sisted in part of messages from the
Berlin foreign ? office, which were
transmitted through the Swedish le
gation to Von Eckhardt and were an
swered by the same route.
Russ Soldiers Refuse to Give
Up Korniloff's Aides for Trial
Petrograd, Sept $7. The military
organizations on the southwestern
front, in agreement with the-"-Kiev
group of the workmen's, and soldiers'
delegates, have refused to hand over
to the commission investigating the
Korniloff revolt Generals Denikine
and Murkof f, as well as others who
supported General Korniloff. It has
been decided to place these men on
trial before a revolutionary tribunal.
The committee of five in temporary
control of the government, at its final
meeting since the return of Premier
Serensky from the front, determined
day that the premier and General
Verkhovsky shali appear before the
democratic congress which convenes
tomorrow.. This action followed a
four-hour session of the committee at
the winter palace, at which the atti
tude of P.'emicr Kerensky is said to
have been substantially this:
"While the government is tot bound
to recognize the democratic congress
and is not conceding that it repre
sents the greatest part of Russia, it is
admi'ted that the congress represents
a large percentagt of 'ihe -eople
through elements which must be taken
into onsiueration. In government cir
cles it is understood that the con
gress will convene for a short time
and then adjourn over one day to be
gin it activities on Saturday."
On the ev of. the opening of con
gress a sensation has been created by
a report that Nikolai Lenine, the ex
tremist leader, has reached the capital
from Finland. It is said he intends to
appear -as the chief orator of the
Bolsheviki at the congress, which he
is confident will defend him.
The Bolshevikis continue to exert
influence over the representatives of
the provincial councils of workmen's
and soldier's delegates. The president
of the Moscow council of workmen
and soldiers has resigned as a result
of. the adoption by the council of a
resolution - unfriendly to the govern
ment. ' In elections of representatives
to the congress the Bolsheviki candi
dates received the highest votes.
The Bolsheviki faction proposes to
place the following tasks, upon the
cabinet: - .... ,
Settle the Korniloff affair; reabolish
capital punishment; strain efforts to
attain peace; to summon as' soon as
possible the constituent assembly; to
dissolve the Duma and the council of
the. empire; to transfer the land to
the peasants immediately; to establish
state control of production; to pass an
eight-hour labor law; to change radi
cally the command of the army. Re

Jury Deliberates Fifteen Min

Guilty of Statutory Of
fense Against Girl.
' Five minutes after a jury in crimJ

had returned a verdict of "guilty" in
the state case ; cf Perry Barkdoll,
charged with a statutory crime against
a 12-year-old girl, 1 deputy sheriffs
stripped his soldier's uniform from
him. - ' -' " - ' '.
Barkdoll was a private in Company
B, Fourth Nebraska National Guard.
He was charged with having mis
treated v little Nellie Vogan, 60S
North Fifteenth street,. in( a cottage
near Carter lake.
The jury that convicted him delib
erated only fifteen minutes.
Chief Deputy County Attorney Ab
bott, prosecuting the case, in his clos
ing statement tovthe twelve venire
men, declared th$ offense was the
most revolting he had ever urged a
jury to convict for.
Wears Uniform at Trial.
Barkdoll, who sat throughout the
trial wearing the soldier's - uniform,
squirmed and bowed his head when
the prosecuting attorney thundered to
the jury that i: was an insult to the
United States for a man charged with
such a crime to enter a court room
wearing regulation khaki. He de
manded that the uniform be stripped
from the soldier if the jury upheld
the state's charge
No sooner had the veniremen filed
back into the court room, and read
their verdict than deputies hustled
Barkdoll into an anteroom and strip
ped him of his uniform. '
"Under no consideration would I
allow Barkdoll to wear that uniform
after he was convicted of such a
crime," declared Sheriff Clark.
Several prominent Omaha women,
members of the morals committee of
the State Council of Defense, were in
the court room when the closing ar
guments were made to , the jury.
Among them were Mrs. Sarah H. Jos
lyn, Omaha's richest woman, and Dr.
Jennie Callfas, chairman of the com
mittee. ,r i.
Two-Day Par,ty Held.
The trial of Barkdoll brought out
facts of a shocking two days' "party"
staged in a lonely cottage near Car

diers and girls of tender years were
"guests." . ".-
The little Vogan girl testified that
another soldier, whojis now in camp
at Deming, N. M., also mistreated her.
The state produced evidence that the
men in the party had wjiisky and Bark

Chicago, Sept 27.--Colonel Roose
velt, today gave his own version of
the secret conference he held with the
German ambassador in 1912, (elating
to the, occupation of Venezuela by
Germany, an incident that then threat
ened to bring on a war betweenGer
many and the United States. Colonel
Roopevelf told the story for the first
time, he. said, in an address at a
luncheon, , , i- ,
"It was about a year after. I took
office," Colonel Roosevelt began. "Ger
many was then engaged, as she had
been for; years, in striving jto extend
her dominion all over the. world. She
had- in view certain chosen positions
in South America. This was why
Germany was the strongest foe of
the' Monroe doctrine. She aimed to
turn South. America into' a German
appendage. Venezuela at that time had
a dictator named Castro, commonly
known as the 'Monkey of the Andes,'
Handles Matter Himself. ' .
I was determined that Venezuela
should not become a German, posses
sion. Germany said it was not to be
permanent and did not define what
was meant by permanency. I per
mitted John Hay to write a number
of notes and then decided to handle
the matter myself. I sent for the Ger
man ambassador and said to this.
" 'This Venezuela business has been
going on long enough and I cannot af
ford to let it get to the point where
it will cause trouble for this country.'
"At that time England was backing
Germany and, while I had both against
me, I paid little attention to England,
but kept my eye on Germany. It was
the last flicker of England's antagon
ism to the United States. .,
"I called the attention of the am
bassador to the fact that Germany had
a squadron of warships near Vene
zuela, threatening the mouth of-the
proposed Istmian cailal. ,1 "demanded
a statement of what1 Germany meant
by temporary possession, saying I did
not propose to have any ninety-nine-year
leases. ... - ' i
' Arbitrate or War. '
"The ambassador told me he did
not feel at liberty to discuss such an
important question. That conference
wound up with the foHowing ulti
matum:" "'Tell your government that in ten
days it must arbitrate the matter or
I will send Dewey down there! ' Thir

to take our fleet into West Indian

by noon accomplished virtually all
that had been planned for it and this
