f Senator Phelan of California,
democrat, referred to the president's
action as a "compliment" to the
senate, declaring the executive had
answered the question of Senator
Benet of South Carolina as to

the war, American officials have
carefully refrained from exercising
any direct influence in this mo
mentous event. Since the United
States never has declared war on Bul
garia, the government has not felt at
liberty to make any suggestions to
its co-belligerents at this stage,
which is regarded as purely mili
tary. ' It is believed, however, that in
the final adjustment of the im
portant political questions involved
in the conditions to be imposed upon
Bulgaria at the conclusion of the
world war, the United States will
be invited to discuss this subject
with -the entente allies at the peace
' It was stated today that no in
structions had been given to any
American diplomatic representatives
in the Balkans to extend the good
offices of the United States to either
Bulgaria or the allies. In notifying
the State department that his gov
ernment had requested an armistice,
however. Stephan Panaretoff. the
Bulgarian minister here, undoubt

action would be gratefully received

It is considered possible that
Minister Panaretoff may have ex-

friends in Bulgaria to bring about
the decision to quit the war.

Government Plans to .
Instruct All Its Men
In How to Be Healthy
General Crowder, through the
medium of the gigantic draft ma
chinery of the nation, will seek
to raise the standard of health of the
country and, as far as possible, to
reclaim the physical unfits of the
draft, by sending health circulars
to local draft boards.
The circulars have been compiled
by eminent military physicians and
are based on the findings of the
physical examinations of the regis
trants. Authorities assert that 60
per cent of the rejections are for
causes that can easily be remedied.
Spare Tires Stolen.
Motorists are advised by police
to watch their spare tires. J. N.
Everson, 2003 Maple street, reports
a tire taken from his car standing
in front of 2016 Lake street last
night, and Sam Goldsmith, 2619
Farnam street, experienced the
same loss from his car standing at
Seventeenth and Harney streets.
Carnival Stand Tickets.
Tickets for grand stand seats for
the electrical parade Wednesday
night are on sale at the Unit-Doce-kal
Drug store, Seventeenth and
Farnam streets. The price is 50
cents a seat and a 5-cent war tax
is charged.

Holding Captured -Positions.
By Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. 30. American

artillery bombardment, General
Pershing reports in his com
munique for today, received tonight
at the War department.
With' the American Army on the
St. Quentin Sector, Sept. 30. The
Americans on this front have been
engaged in heavy fighting through
out the day. There was much hand-to-hand
fighting and large numbers
of Germans have been killed, many
by grenades and bombs dropped in
to their deep dugouts of the Hinden
burg system.
The Americans found it necessary
to clear up portions of the Hinden
burg line through which they
smashed they way. They advanced
so quickly in their operation of
yesterday that many Germans were
left in the dugouts and some of
these proved a serious menace.
Severe Weather.
During the night the British at
tacked on the American flank
towards Vendhuile, to protect it,
and this operation was entirely successful.
The weather today has been bad
for all operations; the troops fought
in rain with a cold wind blowing.
The British are on the western
edge of Le Tronquoy tunnel, a few
miles north of St. Quentin and are
approaching La Fosse. Other
troops have made good progress
south of the canal. The lines in
this locality run well cast of Nau
roy and Bellicourt and just west of
A further advance has been made
around Cambrai.
In the north the Anglo-Belgian
victory is of great importance and
the enemy has been so staggered by
the blows delivered here that Tie
has not launched a single counter
attack. The Belgians hold all the
ground gained.
The British have established
posts on the Lys river north of Pont
De Nieppe. rioegsteert wood is
now firmly in British hands, as is
also the Warnefon-Comines rail
way. Charged With Stealing Bonds
Frank Enochs of Oklahoma City,

where he is wanted for the alleged
theft of $4,000 worth of Liberty

Is the opportunity to subscribe your full share in
Bonds of the Fourth Liberty Loan. To offer
your money to the government of the United
States to aid in prosecuting this war to a victor

But the greatest of all means to victory is
something money can not buy something you
get with your birthright here and something
you give without asking the rate of interest.
