In 1916, 302 companies, operating 139,000 miles of railroad equal to the combined mileage of Germany, France, Austria, Hungary and Russia, transported 60 per cent of he country's entire passenger business and 67 per cent of its entire freight Washington, D.

Pres-idert Wilson has issued his war proclamation against Austria-Hungary. President Wilson specified that unnaturalized Austro-IIungarians, unlike the Germans in this country, should be free to live nd travel anywhere, except that they may not enter or leave the United States without permission, and those suspected of enemy activity may be inspected of enemy activity may be interned.

President Wilson's motive in drawing distinctions between Germans and were deiibed Lafayette, Dec. 13. Whipped to a frenzy by comment upon the attempted criminal assault here upon Miss Azelie Vebre, a young white girl by a negro brute, Lafayette was threatened by a session of Judge Lynch yesterday afternoon. The whole community was aroused by the incident and when officers lodged in jail Clay Harrison a negro, whom they charged with the offense, for a time it appeared as if public resentment could not be held in restraint. Reports of intended violence became so acute that it was deemed wise to spirit the negro away. He was taken to Ope-lousas where he was placed in jail for safe keeping. The attempt upon the young girl was made at the home of David Guirdy. Miss Vebre was surprised by the negro. Realizing her danger the young woman attempted to barricade herself in a room. The negro, with all the brute force at his command, forced the door. It was then that the young girl made a desperate fight for herself. When the negro was frightened from the scene by the cries of Miss Vebre and assistance reached her she was found in a semi-unconscious state from exhaustion and therough handling of ruffercd numerous cuts and the negro bruts. Harrison rushed upon her with all of the bruie force be could command. The girl struggled to release herself then the negro stabbed her three times, on the neck, shoulder and arm. When bis victim sank to the floor of the hall, the negro made his and the conditins are much better and more protected than at the front in France. It is also colder in France and they have the mud of the trenches to suffer as well as the temperature. The million garments already ship in 1916 conducted its operations without the loss of one passenger and but five employes in accidents to trains. Its striking contrast to this record are the fatalities and accidents to those who ignore Safety First principles as practiced by the roads. Forty-nine per cent or almost half of the total fatalities for the year 1916 were due to trespassing on trains or on tracks, a thing that is forbidden by law in Europe under ped will be worn out by the time those you are making now are finished and the home contingent need equipment to go with.
