Welcome Lille Deputies; De
nounce Abominable Crimes
of German- Soldiers
I'arlx. Oct 23.—The Chamber of
Deputies yesterday eiitliusiatleally
welcomed Deputies Delory and Raglie
-000111, of Lille, returning to their,
seats after years in the hands of the
Hermans. Amid an impressive si
lence, M. Delory said:
"It is impossible to denounce all
the German crimes, but the most
abominable was the carrying off of
women and girls of 9 and lli by en
emy soldiers, their enforced submis- |
sion to medical examination and their J
being obliged to work under French
machine gun tire for the German I
Army." 1
The chamber shouted its indigua- |
tion One member cried: "We'll :
teach our children that! We'll never'
forget." Then SI. Delory resumed: 1
"The l.ens plains are nothing but
an immense area of ruins with not '
one house intact. There cannot be a '
Frenchman who does not wish those |
culpable chastised."
SI. Kagheboom told how German j
soldiers had insulted and violated
Lille women, and how they forced 5- I
year-old Children to work for them, j

field hospitals within a radius of

by the Rev. Mr. Moran for the first
time when he received two calls to
say Held masses one Sunday morning.
| The call came front villages fifty
miles apart Where troops were bil
leted. An aviation pilot solvtqi the
problem for Chaplain Moran by of

mass at one village at 6 o'clock in the
| morning and at another mass in the
village fifty miles further on at 7.30

The Rev. Edwin O'Hara, rector of !
the cathedral at Portland, a volunteer i

In order to vole a man must have

Influenza Epidemic
Is Rapidly Declining
The number of influenza cases is
rapidly declining, and while the
number of deaths is still large, there
is every reason to believe that tlie
crisis is over and the matter well in
hand. Because of the shortage of
volunteer workers at the emergency
hospital, fourteen more state mili
tiamen were brought here yesterday,
and these, with the ten who have
been here for some time, will re
main on the grounds and will per
form any duty to which they may
be assigned.

Most of us eat three times a day
and often forget that each meal
should be disposed of in the stomach
to make room for the next. The
failure of the stomach to do this is
called indigestion or dyspepsia, with
its sour risings, gas, rumblings, pain,
depression and t|le feeling of stuffi

The'fnost effective remedy and the
most reliable one. because you can
get it at any drug store in the United

son's conditions, what they mean for
our future. Our answers to tho
President's questions must be framed
on the German people's understand
ing of the question. What it now
wants is clearness.
To Oppose Violence at Home
"The decision will be of stupen-j
dous import. It will not be our j
strength that will decide, but it will ■
be what is thought to be right In !
free discussion with our opponents:
that will give the decision. This isi
a great effort for a proud people ac-;
customed to victory. The lcgnl qucs-,
Hons involved will not stop at our 1
national boundaries which we will i

"The principles upon which wo'
have agreed as a rule of conduct also
involve internal questions. From
many quarters it has been repre-|
sented to me that an acceptance of
President Wilson's conditions would'
mean submission—anti-German sub
mission—to an anti-German court j
of justice which would decide legal
questions entirely from the view
point of its own interests. If that
is tlic case, why then Is it the ex
treme apostles of force in the En
tente tear the council chamber as
tlic guilty fear the court of justice?j
Bitterness Foreseen by Chancellor
"The essence of President Wilson's
program for a leugue of nations can
'not he achieved when all peoples
have not the right of national self-
Idetermination. This realization of 1
[community law means the abandon
ment of part of the unqualified inde
| pendence which hitherto has been
|the indication of sovereignty, both
by us and others. Should we ut
thome maintain as fundamental the
[national egoism which until a short
itime ago was the dominating force
lof the people's life, there would be
[no restitution und no renovation for
jus. There "would be a feeling of blt
[terness which would cripple us for
j generations.
i "But if we comprehend that the
:significance of this frightful war is.
[above all, victory for the idea of
[justice, und if we do not resist this
idea, but submit with all good faith,
[then we shall find in it a cure for
[our present wounds and a reservoir
of future strength."
I Prince Maximilian said -he would
[not deny thut heavy opposition in
[Germany must be conciuered before
[the ideal league of nations could he
realized, but he continued:
J "Whether the next few days or
I weeks shall call us to light on, or
[open the way to peace, there is no
[doubt we ure now equal to the task
of either war or peace by carrying
[out the government's program and
i definitely breaking away from the
[old system."
Cites Bills Before Reichstag
The imperial chancellor then dis
cussed electoral and parliamentary

I Reichstag, one of which enables
[members of the house to enter the
j government without resigning and
'another proposing a change in the

"Deputies will take part in the

Reform in Future
i Announcement was made by, the!

Ithe German people. After saying he!
welcomed expressions of opinion and |
jthat lie and his colleagues wsre!
'■agreed as to methods and purposes.|
ihe added:
I "Our aim is the political author

• the guiding star of my collaborators

imembers of the government at ilrst!
had different standpoints, but now
had been brought nearer together.
People to Hide
"The Gentian people IrinsN t rig'
been in saddle," lie said. "Now it
is to ride.'"
"Our first and last thought." the
chancellor continued, "is for the
brave men who are defending them
selves against superior forces and
whom we must defend against un
j ist charges. No one must think he
can attack our army without also
attacking the honor of our people.
"The lot of our soldiers to-day is
terriblV hard. They light with
.anxiety for the homeland and with |
jtheir minds fixed on peace, and they j
I hold their ground."
All in the Future
! The extraordinary war time meas-|
jures, the chancellor explained, could
not yet be dispensed with, but they I
icould be carried out only by the!
I chancellor, who would be respon-i
sible to the Reichstag for their ap-|

"His Majesty's decrees which I
.announced recently now have been

I not only the censorship, the right of

"If local military commanders
'disagree with the civil authorities'
the decision must be reaahed im

Austria Still Hopes V. S.
Will Grant Her "Soft Peace"
Ituscl, Oct. 23.—President Wilson's
reply to the Austrian peace propo

which has been begun is to be inter
rupted, according to Baron., Von
Hussurek, Austrian premier, speak

received to-day.
"We shall continue all the more
our efforts toward peace," he said.
"We shall answer the note after
carefully examining its corftents. We
hope that the peace discussions, not
withstanding difficulties, will deliver
the world in the near future from
tlie unspeakable misery of war."
