( Summary of Events.)
The German colony of Tsing
Thu in the Chinese province of
Kaio Chow lias at last surrendered
to the Japanese-British forces
alter a land and naval siege of
mure than two months. The cap-
ture of this stronghold takes from
Germany her last foothold on the
Asiatic mainland and her last
strategic position outside the Ger-
man Empire in Europe.
Make Brave Defense.
Tor nearly three months the little
tiern.an garrison amounting to about
7,000 men composed of reservists who
were living or doing business In
China has held out against the land
and sia attacks of the Japanese and of
certain British detachments of both
white and Indian troops that found
themselves in China at the outbreak
of the war. What the losses of the
garrison have been are not known, but
the official Japanese and British re-
ports have indicated that Tsing Tau
lias beitn taken at heavy cost of men
on the part of the Allies.
Germans Try Again.
A Berond concerted attempt of the
German army to blast its way through
to tli« sea, is flaming and roaring
from Nleuport to the French frontier
witho.ut definite result so far on
fither side. The area near the coast
formerly held by the extreme German
right and from which the invaders
were forced by the Allies after many
days of hard fighting. U held only by
jead, dying and wounded, the inunda-
tion having made the vicinity unin-
habitable for living and having pre-
vented an advance of the British,
French and Belgian Allies.
Battle in Sand Dunes.
No decision has yet been reached In
the battle In the dunes of West Flan-
ders, and the opposing armies now
stand virtually as they have stood for
many days While the Germans keep
hammering away at the Allies around
Ypres, which route they chose for
their march to the coast after they
had found the road along the sea
barred to them, and the Allies are
making an effort to move northward
to Ostend, neither side has got very
Floods Hold Both Sides.
The Belgians and those supporting
them have found that the floods which
they created to stop the German ad-
vance are a hindrance to their move-
ments. although they have been able
to occupy some villages, including Bix-
schoote. which had been in the pos-
session of the Germans.
Germans Win Sea Fight.
In the most Important naval battle
of the war between European powers
a German fleet engaged the British
squadron, composed of the Good Hope,
the Monmouth and the Glasgow, off
Coronel. Chile, and decisively defeat-
ed It. This engagement practically
ends the power of the Allies In the
South Pacific seas unless a new Anglo-
Jap fleet Is formed.
Turks Fight Russians.
The fli'st reports of the fight-
ing between the Russians and the
Turks are as conflicting as were the
first Austrian and Russian accounts of
the warfare in Gallcla. Each contend-
er claims to have Invaded the other's |
territory and to have defeated his |
frontier armies. These lights, how- j
ever, probably have been only advance
guard affairs, and It is believed
that some time may elapse before a
pitched battle takes place.
The Anglo-French fleet continues to

itals of these countries, acting on or-
ders from the Forte, have demanded

Turks Rush Troops to Egypt.
An ndvance of Turkish troops in the
Sinai Peninsula in the direction of
Egypt is reported in Berlin from
Switzerland. The Turkish army op.
erating against Egypt is said to num-
ber one-fourth million men.
How Turkey Entered War.
Turkish battle cruisers bombarded
two Russian Black Sea ports, damag-
ing property considerably, and sank
two or three small Russian war ves-
sels, several days ago.
Shelled a Turkish Fort.
After twenty-four hours of uncer-
tainty. during which hope was ex-
pressed that the porte might make
amends for the incidents in the Black
Sea, the British udmirulty announced
that the Hritish cruiser Minerva had
destroyed the Turkish barracks

The Austrian attempts to cut off the
Russian attackers finally have broken
down, and the Austrians now are in
retreat along the San River.
Austrian troops are pushing through
the Carpathians to support the Aus-
trian array falling back before the
Russians west of the San River. A
correspondent at Lemberg states that
these troops have been exhausted by
the struggle through the snow-filled
mountain passes. •
German Retreat, Russians Say.
The Russian war office says the Ger-
mans are retreating precipitately into
East Prussia with the Russian armies
harrassing them at every point. The
cold weather lias apparently demoral-
ized the Germans and many of them
are reported surrendering without a
Long German Retreat.
The new position of the German
army front, along the River Warthe
over seventy-five miles west of the
Vistula river, which they reached at
the time of the attempted attack on
Warsaw, Indicates the tremendous re-
treat of General Von Hindenberg's en-
tire army in Poland the last two
weeks. This retreat is regarded as
especially important since such noted
Industrial centers as Lodz, l'lotrkow,

last August, she preyed on British
shipping in the Indian ocean, but late
last month she suddenly appeared at
Penang, on Malacca straits. A fourth
smokestack was rigged on her deck
and a Japanese flag run up. Thus
disguised, she steamed unchallenged
under the British guns of the fort
and fired torpedoes which sank the

The Emden, it Is believed, was able
to keep at sea for months by taking
supplies and coal from her prizes.
The first report of her activity was
received August 5 when she was said
to have been sunk in action with the
Russian cruiser Askoid off Wel-Hai-
Wel. A few days later word was re-
ceived that the Emden had sunk the
steamer City of Winchester on Au-
gust 5, and In the Bay of Bengal five
days later, had sent two more British
vessels to the bottom. Within three
Washington.—Further spread of the
livestock foot and mouth disease
caused the extension of the federal
quarantine to Rhole Island, Massa-
chusetts and Iowa. Reports to the
department of agriculture announce
the discovery of the epidemic at South
Attlebury, Bristol county, Mass., and
at Parnell, Iowa, the first case west
of the Mississippi. Cattle, sheep and
hogs, now cannot be moved out ot
Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Penn-
sylvania, Maryland, New York, Massa-
chusetts, Iowa, Rhode Island, Dela-
ware and Wisconsin.
In addition to the states already
quarantined Mississippi is believed to
be threatened with a case at Como
where It is reported a herd has con-
tracted the disease.
Hope was expressed upon the re- |
ceipt of no reports of new cases in In- j
diana and Michigan that the epidemic
there has been placed under control.
On the other hand new cases wert<
found in Lancaster county, Pennsyl-
vania and in three more counties in
The spread of the disease makes
certain an increased cost of putting
down the epidemic. It would not sur-
prise officials if the cost would be
nearer the $2,000,000 expended by the
German government to eradicate the
disease from among its cattle a few
years ago, than the $300,000 spent by
the American government in fighting
the 1908 outbreak of the disease. The
expense of having inspectors trace the
various shipments from infected cen-
ters will be-very large. Ten new in-
spectors were rushed to Wisconsin,
Iowa and Massachusetts. Department
officials have suggested to the pro-
moters of the Royal Cattle show to be
held at Kansas City, Mo„ this fall that
the event should be postponed.
Chicago Yard Closed.
Chicago.—A large part of the cattle
receiving and meat packing industry
of the country, long centered in Chi-
cago temporarily was shifted to Kan-
sas City, Omaha, St. Joseph, Mo., and
other western cities and the Chicago
Union Stock Yards, for the first time
since its organization in 1865, was
closed down for nine days in conse-
quence of the' prevalence of hoof and
mouth disease among cattle. The
quarantine against the stock yards and
all other cattle pens within the state
went into effect at all plants. The
state's action supplements the federal
quarantine against Illinois.
No more cattle, sheep or hogs are
to be received in Chicago until No-
vember 16 when business is to be re-
sumed after the wards have been thor-
oughly disinfected and pronounced
fre from the disease.
The effects of the quarantine at the
union stock yards were shown in the
prices of poultry. Anticipating a
stronger demand for poultry by reason
of the epidemic of foot and mouth dis-
ease among cattle, the price of live
fowls has advanced four cents a pound
in the last 48 hours. The price ot'
dressed meats so far has not been ef-
fected and assurances given by the
OFFICIAL RETURNS VERY SLOW
IN COMING IN TO STATE
SOCIALISTS MAKE GREAT GAINS
And Will Have Several Members lr
the Legislature—Senator Gore's
Plurality Will Total
R. L. Williams, democrat, is lead
ing John fields, republican, by a plu
rallty of 9,055 votes In the contest for
governor in returns received by the
state election board from seventy-one
of the seventy-seven counties of the
state. The vote stood Williams 92,729
and Fields 83,674.
The counties yet to report are Co-
manche, Harper, Kingfisher, Kiowa,
Major and Oklahoma. Fields received
a plurality in all but .one of these
counties, according to unofficial re-
turns. It is now estimated that Wil-
liams plurality will be somewhere be-
tween 4,600 and 4,700.
Socialist gains, so far as the gub-
ernatorial race is concerned, con-
tinued through the seventy-one coun-
ties. Holt, the socialist candidate for
governor, has received a total of 48.167
in the seventy-one counties, which is
6,307 more votes than were received
by John W. Wells, socialist candidate
for United States senator in 1912.
It is now apparent that the four
proposed constitutional amendments
submitted through the efforts fo At-
torney General Charles West have
been defeated through the "Bilent
vote". Tabulation of the vote on the
four questions in the first fifty coun
ties, which reported to the state board
showed lhey were heavily favored in
the "yes" and "no" vote, but did not
receive a majority of all votes cast in
the different counties.
W. L. Alexander, for state treas
urer, is leading the state ticket in the
counties that have reported, with E.
B. Howard for state auditor second,
and J. L. Lyon, for secretary of state,
third. Alexander's plurality over the
republican epponent is 31,033.
Gore Far Ahead.
Senator Gore continues his long
lead over his republican opponent,
Judge John H. Burford of Guthrie.
The vote now stands: Gore 107,038
and Burford 63,852, giving the blind
senator a plurality of 43,186. A!
though i tore is running far ahead
of other democratic candidates he is
not expected to receive a vote as
large as was given to Senator R. L.
Owen in 1912. Owen received 126.418
votes. Neither will Burford receive
as big a vote as was given to J. T.
Dickerson, the republican candidate
against Owen. He received a total of
