ITALY, LIKE THE
U.S., IS FIGHTING
FOR THE RIGHT
Italian Officer Tells Business
Men of Omaha of Romans'
Part in the War.
Lieutenant Bruno Roselli of the
Italian army spoke eloquently at the
Chamber of Commerce yesterday on
Italy's part in the great war.
."Italy, like the United States did
not fight because it had to. but be
cause it chose to fight for the right,"
he said. "The cause of the disaster
of last November was twofold.
speak of it as a disaster because such
it was and it is a foolish babit which
would try to belittle it and call it a
strategic retreat It was caused first
by the Russian collapse which re
leased 4,000,000 Austro-Hungarian
troops against the weakest remaining
link in the allied line. Xhat link was
Italy, a country which produces no
coal, no gasoline, no material used in
modern warfare. It is a line which
fights 13,000 feet above sea level.
'The other thing which aided the
Huns was their iniquitous campaign
of deception. A few days before their
attack came copies of Italian news
papers to the trenches. They were
just like the real papers except the
first page and the editorial page,
These had bogus stories about British
and French troops pillaging the
cities of Italy. The next day came
anonymous letters to the trench sol
diers which told them that things
were not right in their homes and
urging them to get furloughs and re
turn home at once.
. "Then flags of truce began to ap
pear above the Austrian trenches. At
the same time the bogus papers ap
pearing in the trenches stated that an
armistice was about to be signed. So
the soldiers reasoned that half an
hour of truce would do no harm. The
next day they had an hour truce and
the following day two hours truce
Then the Austrian soldiers in the
trenches were replaced by picked
Prussians and just when the truce of
the day had started these troops
rushed the Italian trenches. Thus
started the retreat.
"The Piave river victory of last
week was equally as important a3 the
French victory of the Marne. It
marks a new era in the war.
Rely on U. S. Troops.
"Just last week the first United
States troops landed in Italy. This
is a thing for which we have been
longing since the war started. We
want your troops to fight with us.
The Germans told our ' soldiers that
the Americans were fighting merely
to pay a debt of gratitude to Lafayette
and that they would do no more.
But if Lafayette helped this country
to liberty, it was Columbus, an
Italian, who discovered it.
"Too often the Italian flag is omit
ted from display of the allied flags in
this country. Yet Italy has fought
a fight of the highest bravery. With
its 33,000,000 people it has battled the
Austro-Hungarians with their 55,000,
000. It has put 3,500,000 troops in the
field.' It has taken every man from
17 to 47 years of age, and it has over
come seemingly insurmountable dif
ficulties." Lieutenant Roselli has been in this
country six months and has address
ad 212 audiences.
Corps" Solves Servant
Problem In England
; London, July 3. Servants in Eng
land may be known as "household
' orderlies," if a plan of the Women's
Industrial Council works successfully
Promoters ot the idea Deueve tnat tne
term of "servant" is objectionable to
woman workers and it is proposed to
establish "household orderly corps"
'n centers throughout the country.
; , Women are to be trained and or
' ganized for household duties and un
der present arrangements a wage
scale of 30 shillings for a 48 hour
week has been determined upon.
From the district centers skilled "do
mestic orderlies" are to be supplied
to households for a desired number
of hours each day.
Attached to the centers will be a
training school, a restaurant and
sleeping quarters, in charge of a man
iger. A board of management, conr
oosed of representatives of employers
and workers, will decide the charges
to be made to employers, the hours
of work, holidays and the style of uni
form to be worn.
Promoters of the plan say it prom
ises a solution of the household work

for thousands of girls who will lay

made public by P. J. McAndrew,

citizens of Dublin. In a statement
printed in Dublin newspapers, Mr.
McAndrew said: .
"I have had many inquiries from
different parts of Ireland as to the
mode of procedure necessary for
young men to join the American army.
The young men state that they only
realized recently that America had
gone seriously into the war, and that
they have had letters from brothers.
cousins and more distant relatives in
America who have joined the Ameri

that, in their opinion, the war will
lead to the freedom of Ireland, as they
are satisfied that America will see
that justice is done to the people of
Ireland without further delay.

young men of this country fee that

Washington. July 5. A resolution
declaring it opportune for the United
States. Japan and 'Great Britain to
enter into an agreement which would
prevent German and the other cen
tral powers from gaining a foothold
upon the Pacific which might permit
them to "use methods of warfare on
the Pacific ocean not justified or war
ranted by the laws of war," was in
troduced today by Senator Saulsbury.
Consideration of it was postponed.
Under the resolution the Chinese
republic and the Russian people
"when able to establish a sufficiently
strong and stable government and
any other government on the Pacific
littoral prepared to contribute to the
common purpose reasonable propor
tions of sea power" might be admit

The resolution would have the
agreement provide "that no warships
or other armed vessels of any power
which has heretofore or shall here
after pursue an unwarranted course

warfare on the high seas, shall be per
mitted to have, hold or obtain ports,

year, according to estimates of the
bureau of census.
This does not include the cigarets
rolled by the smoker from loose to

of census has no data. An official
report of the bureau says:

and 34,832,385,675, respectively. '
ihe increase in the production of
cigarets in registered factories during
recent years is a striking one, amount

six-year period, 1911-1917; and when

Ihe exports of cigarets during 1917
totaled 7,023,626.000. The imports
from foreign countries and shipments
from the Philippines were relatively
very small, amounting to only 37,922
pounds, or about 10,000.000 or 12,000.-

Ihe net production in one vear
