The robber}- w^s not discovered until early today, i; When Al. Davis, a machinist employed by Mr. Shannon ^ opened the store -.for the day's business his attention wa^ attracted to a glass ; display case which evidently had been tampered with, ^n inspection revealed the fact that t ^e mammoth case had been completely 9 'leared of the articles which it had coniained, mostly knives • with the name ^Shannon on them. FurUier Inspection, showed that other cases had been r|nsacked and that razors, revolvers, tennis balls and other articles were mi |s!ng.

Harry Morris and James Harmon, the two youthful bank robbers who escaped from the Yates Ceifter jail last Sunday night where they were held-for the-looting of tht State Exchange Bank at noon on February 10, still are at large having apparently made effective their bold dash for freedom. - . A\l\en the men were found missing about 5:30 in the afternoon, a posse immediately was orgaptzed, bloodhounds secured and puriHit started. The hounds followed the trail to a creek three miies north of Yates Center but halted, at the water's edge, completely baffled.' Because of the muddy condition of the roadfi, pursuit by motor car was impossible and with the blood hounds andering aimlessly around, the searchers made' slight progres and it now admitted that there is small hope of the immediate capture of the fugitives. Sheriff Dunfee who motored to Hum boldt yesterday afternoon following the receipt of a tip that the bandits had been seen there, returned late yesterday evening with the news that the trip was futile. • > The report, tbatl the two young men ad been captuiod near Eldorado also proved to he erroneous. Two young men were held on suspicion there but were al)Ie to give a satisfactory account of themselves.

Four battleships are reported tcThave bombarded the po~ gition of the Turkish am y along'tjhc Gulf of Saros which Is sei arated from the Dardanelles by the Gallipoli peninsula. The fUndg and books of the Ottoman bank aild the German balik, it is said, have been taken froni Constantinople to Konieh, a city in Asia Minor. An Athens dispatch to the Figaro says: "Information from roliable sources is to the effect that Turkey now realizes that the situation is becoming critical. Defenses are being thrown up hastily along the coast of Asia Minor, Troops from the Vilayets of Shiyrna are being rushed to the Dardanelles regions. Desertions are numerous. Placards are said «o have been posted in Constantinople proclaiming ^he young Turk leaders as traitors. Bitter dissentions have acis- en among the Turkish leaders." Athens, via Paris, Mar. 3.— Nine bat tleship« took part in 'yesterday's bom bardment of the fort in the Dardanelles. Six were British and three were French. The squadron advanced to within two miles of Chanak, Kalesia at the rtirrowest point in the straits. A detachment of the Allied troops landed at Kunkaleh on the Asiatic side ind met the Turkish garrison which j was scattered easily. The telegrapfi station at Besik Island, near the entrance to the strait was demolished. | A dispatch from Athens Tuesday said the Allied fleed had - destroyed the batteries at Chanak, Kalcsia (Ft. Sultanie.) Rerlin, (via wireless), Mar:'.l—The chance of success for the Anglo- French fleet at the Da»!anelles is con sidered by Major Moraht, military critic of the Berlin Taggeblatt to be "rather weak." He says that the destruction of all the forts'of both sides of the strait would not permit the passage of the fleet or an invasion by land, since It would be necessar.y to free the waters of mines and subdue the Turkish land forces, England and France. Maor Moraht argues, would he unable to bring up land forces of sufficient strength for successful operations where the Turks have strong forces available. The ships blimbarding the arc haudi faiMiod'by the lack of- sufTicinntly high irajeclories and because of tli«; fact that the" amount of ammunition aviiilable for ihem ig liinitr^d, Considering alt tlieso things he maintains there is no reason to doubt that the 'forks will continuK to control the Dardanelles.

They hold the view that the position of the United States K absolutely in accord with international law although they realize that Great Britain hag taken a very advanced stand in her latest note. Commissioner Stebbins, of the public utilities department, has received notice that the njammoth Corliss' engine recently purchased by the city to fake the place of a worn out engine at the power plant on the Neobbo river, will be shipped soon: All the court* were quiet today.
