The state of Colorado, through the

about eleven thousand feet through
a narrow ridge of the Green moun

east ot the oreen mountains and

The state of Wyoming in its bill
states that if this tunnel through the
mountains is permitted to operate
that it will carry away the waters
of the stream to the amount of more
than one hundred thousand acre feet
per anum to a point more than one
hundred miles away from the Laramie
valley and from which no part of
the waters can return. Colorado
answers the allegations of the plain
tic by stating that the entire diver

acre feet annually.
The contention of the citizens of
Wyoming is that a clear preponder
ance of the evidence that long be
fore the commencement of any pro
ceedings by the citizens of Colorado
to take the waters in controversey,
Wyoming' had appropriated the en
tire available waters of the Laramie
river and that the threatening diver

of Colorado will prove highly disas

Able counsel presented every pos

Julius Kahn of California at a lunch

referring to their efforts in congress

Senator Chamberlain, responding to

Representative Kahn denounced the
pacifists. "The strong arm of the gov

and get those people. A few prompt
trials and a few quick hangings -would
orove most salutary at this time.
"We have been in this war 10
months we are not near ready. The
administration has sent to the two
committees on the military affairs
the committee of the senate and the
committee of the house a bill to
amend the draft law so that every
young man who has attained the age
of 21 years since the 5th of June shall
register for service. If I can shape the
legislation, I shall write it so that

would be great. It would be notice to
the imperial government of Germany
that the United States intend to mort
gage their man nower for a six years'

eligible to military service when they
attained their majority, when they be
came 21, but I would train them when
they became 20, so that they would
be full-fledged soldiers when they be
came Zl. And then I would insert in
the legislation this further provision,
that when the war is over, that the
training of the young American shall
not cease in the piping times of peace,
but that as boys become 18 years of
age in this country they shall be com

Reds Hold Real Power,
Says British Envoy
(By AMorlatvd Press.)
London, Jan. 20. Sir George
Buchanan, British ambassador to
Russia, who now is in London on
sick leave, today stated that while
the Petrograd dispatches indicated
that the social revolutionaries had
an actual majority in the con
stituent assembly, that did not al
ter the fact that the Kolsheviki
have the real power. The Hol
sheviki doctrines are spreading
throughout the whole of Russia.
Sir George declared. He added
that while he was unable to fore
cast the future, he was convinced
that Russia was not finished, be
cause such a vast country could
not be destroyed.
The food situation in Petrograd
was very serious, he said. "The
general opinion there is that the
food may fail absolutely this
month," Sir George concluded,
"and if vfamine comes one may
expect anarchy, and with that
everybody would be in peril."
Father Sinne Makes Plea
For Better Church Music
An overflow conjugation at the

of music in the Catholic church. He
asserted that music was one of the
most important functions of the
church, and that Catholics did not,
as a rule, appreciate the great in
fluence for good.
v "I have attended a number of serv
ices in Omaha and its suburbs, and
I am compelled to say that the choral
work in a vast number of the churches
does not reflect credit on the diocese.
I have heard the wedding march
played when I did not blame the pros
pective bride for turning pale, so
much like a funeral dirge did it sound.
We have the talent. What we need
are instructors, capable men who un
derstand church music, and can
Father Sinne expressed an earnest
wish that this condition be improved,
and that a move be inaugurated in
all the Catholic churches of the dio
cese for better music. "A campaign
of this kind would be endorsed and
loyally supported by the archbishop,
clergy and laiety of the entire city."

Emperor Alone Can Make War or
Peace, Declare Prussian Lords
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, Jan. 20-The right of the German emperor to the
exclusive making of war or peace has been reaffirmed in the Prussian
chamber of lords in the adoption of a resolution presented by Berlin
representatives, said a dispatch today from Berne. As quoted in the dis
patch the resolution said:
"The chamber of lords firmly hopes that when peace ii concluded
the government will see that the rights of the emperor o! Germany are
safeguarded. These rights are conceded to him by the .constitution and
peace should be commensurate with the sacrifices which have been made
for the politic and economic interests of the country." .
Accompanying the resolution was this commentary:
"The president of the United States has asked if the German ne
gotiations at Brest-Litovsk are in the name of the majority of the reich
stag or in the name of the military party. For our part we affirm that
it is the German emperor who in the terms of the constitution haa the
exclusive right to make war and peace."
