Vladivostok, Monday, Aug. 26.—Tho recont attempt of Lieutenant General Uorvath to gain control of the Russian military forces In Siberia iraS such, a' corapleto failure that- It 1 B probable tho 400 Zemslvo troops who sided with him ani subsequently were disarmed , Will join tho army of General Semen- Motf, ontl-Bdlshovlk leader iu traus- Baikal) wlio 1 B co operating with the .Entento forces. The troops offered I -^ino resistance to the decision of the .^Allies that they must lay down their ' arms, The disarming of tho Zomstvos was effected by squads of Allied troops who virtually besieged the barracks occupied by tho. revolters. A decision to submit an ultimatum to tho revolters was reached by the council commanders. Tho revoUers wero given the option of returning lo their original command" Of of Joining the forces of General- Semenoff on the Manclmrian front or of submitting to disarmament. An aide of Uoneral Horvath today sought to cxpluin away the defect Ion of., the troops and disclaimed any Intention on the part of his chief lo seize Control of tho government. ThQ-"-Zumatvo troops, ho said, had long chafed because of their Inaction and desired to tight tho enemy under General Pleshkort. Therefore, he said, When General Pleshkoff recently ar VA(.m THIRTEEN. rived, ho issued a call for tho Iroops to assonihtc and all came except those of General Tolstoff, who refused to subordinate himself and was dismissed from command. "The-affair Is simple," said the aide, "and t can't understand why there is all this cicitemont about it." General Horvalh recently by coup d'etat assumed control of all the Russian military forces'in, the Far East, The move failed almost immediately through the intervention of tho Allied representatives at Vladivostok. / LIVE STOCK MARKETS^ Kansas City.

REGISTER SEPT. 12 ]0R NEW DRAFT (Continued from Pago One.) to Include all men between tho ages of eighteen und forty-five. This is not a new policy. A century ago and a quarter of a century ago It was deliberately ordained by those who were then responsible for the Bafety and defense of the nation that the duty of military service should rest upon all ablebodled men between the ages of eighteen and forty-five. Wo now accept and Tulfill the obligation which they established, an obligation expressed In our national statutes from that time unlil now. We solemnly purpose a decisive vie- lory of arms and deliberately to devote tho larger part of tho military manpower of the nation to the accomplishment of that purpose. The younger man from tho first have been ready to go. .They have furnished voluntary enlistments out of all proportion to their numbers. Our military authorities regard them as having tho highest combatant qualities. Their ye-uth- fulentbuslasm, their virile eagerness, their gallant spirit of daring make them the admiration of all who soe them in action. They covet not only the distinction of serving in this great war, but also the Inspiring mcmnries which hundreds of thousands ot them will cherish through the years to come, of a great day and "a great service for their country arid for mankind. By the men of the older group now. called upon the opportunity now opened to them wilt be accepted with the calm resolution of those who realize to the full the deep and solemn significance of what they do. Having made a place for themselves In their respective communities, having assumed at home the gravest responsibilities, of life In many spheres, looking back upon honorable records in civil and industrial life, they will realize as perhaps no others could, how. entirely their own fortunes, and the fortunes of ail whom they love are put at stake in tltls war for right, and will know that the very records thoy have made render this new duty the commanding duty of their Uvea./ They know how surely this ^s the nation 's war, how imperatiely It demands the mobilization and massing of all our resources of every kind. They will regard this call as the supreme call of their day and will answer it accordingly. Only a portion of those who register wlll^be- called upon to . bear arms. Those who are not physically fit will be excused, those exempted by alien allegiance', thoso who should not be relieved of their present responsibilities—above ill thoso who cannot be spared from the civil and Industrial tasks at home upon which' the success of our armies depends as much, as upon the fighting at the frcnt But all must he registered In order that the selection for military service may be made Intelligently and with full Information. This will be our final demonstration of loyalty, democracy and the will to win, our solemn notice to'all the world that we stand absolutely together in a common resolution and purpose. •••!••<. It is the call to duty to which every true man in the country will repond with pride and with the eonciousriess that in doing so he' plays a part *n vindication of ti great ca'ise at whose summons every true heart ..offer its supreme service," •• ' - ALIEN PROPERTY.

ROB TIRE HOSPITAL Local Concern Entered Last Might nnd Tires Taken. MUST BE A GANG BUSY HERE Said to Be Positive Evidence Here That Booty Was Taken to Wichila. The Hutchinson Tire Hospital yras entered last evening by thieves" and a number of tires stolen. Entrance was made at a window at the back of the stoiij and after getting a number of Blackstone -and Knight tiros, 30x3 and 30x314 unlocked the back door and left it open, and the rflbbery was discovered this morning by Lloyd Brown, the proprietor when he opened up. It is thought that the thieves were at work about 11 o'clock last night as a friend of Mr. Brown's driving past on Sherman street thought he saw a light flashing in the store as he drove past. He came back but saw nothing to confirm his scare and decided that It must have been a light which was burning in the Dillon store next door. The authorities have positive evidence that the thieves went to Wichita. As so many Fords are being stolen just at this time and these tires would fit a Ford car tho supposition naturally is that the work wa.« done by a gang working in tills vicinity. > on the new |28,OoO,OflO terminal at South Boston, Mass., the war department today took an emphatic stand against permitting its prtllcy ot paying "prevailing local scales" to be used in forcing up wage scales.
