He was 57 years old. The oflicial bulletin did' not give the cause of death, but it is understood that it was caused by toxic poisoning from a tnroai oilment. The poison impiegnattd Hie blood, affecting tne vital: organs, principally the heart Lord .Nuuhcliite was unconscious a great ucal of the time before his! death. ' The death of Lord Northcliffe removes a unique ligure in modern British history. He changed British thought completely and was the greatest single force 'for pregressiveness in England. He was ruthless in breaking down old traditions. He was the diet to introduce modern newspaper methods in. England;--methods �� that might formerly have been termed ."yellow." One of Northclifle's last xcU was to fight Lloyd; George's policy �yrlhe Genoa conference-as unheard' of violaT&c' or the tradition that the government must be supported In in-.leri*U� jbnferancc*. v , ....a/-'. Northcliffe- played  a" rJbwerful role in the world war and It was his papers that 'first revealed the shortage of heavy ammunition in the British army in France. He was born in Dublin, the son of a lawyer. His first publication was a weekly called "Answers," which consisted mainly of answers to questions, jokes" and short "freak" stories. He was created a baronet in 1905: a baron in 1905 and a viscount In 1917.   In    1917    Northcliffe Bail Executives Give An swer to President but Feel Strike Must be Fought to Finish. Washington, Aug. 14.-Hope of a speedy settlement of the nation-widd railroad shopmen's strike apparently depends on the attitude of the unions toward President Harding's proposal. Members of the committee representing the railroad executives left Washington convinced that negotiations for an adjustment of the -dispute were at an end and that thesis-sues involved must be fought to a finish. The executives announced that a majority of their membership was willing to accept the President's proposal that all striking shopmen be reemployed pending determination of their seniority rights by the railroad labor board. A minority meeting, Friday in New York,, at which the Pi iident's proposal was considered, wertt on record, it was announced, as willing to retire enough strikers to All existing vacancies. The executive committee, It was said, had looked with disfavor on a compromise suggestion advanced by representatives of the four railroad brotherhoods. Utat the aenliWiy^ies-tioa.be submitted to an impartial arbitration commission, rather than the labor board; . [ With the execulivesj'determined to stand pat', it appeared that if the striking shop crafts refused to accept the last proposal of* President Harding, settlement of: Che dispute was as far off as ever.

Portland District. By H. T. HOPKINS, I. N. S. Sniff Correspondent.  - Portland, Ore., Aug. 14.-If you are going to drinl bootleg whiskey you should get on the outside of the moon-sincr's produce rather than consume the contents cf the imported bottle. This advice comes from no less an authority thar Jesse Flanders, federal prohibition erforcertent officer for the Porland dstrict. That moonihining is rapidly being an imporant industry in this state was admitted by the federal official. He aso admitted that the quality of monshine liquor is growing better and that the possibilities of paralysis, blinlness or instant death due to drinkiig moonshine, are de creasing. : A fair grade of "mountain dew" is now dripping from the illicit still, compared to he poisonous liquid manufactured two years ago, Flanders, said. "We find    hat   moonshiners are learning more about their business declared the n-ohibition enforcement officer.    "Chenical tests show that the poisonous iquors of a few years i ago are disapiearing, and a better ' grade of moonshine is being produced. ' Imported Idqnor Rotten.

One proposed by President Harding and the other by the men, and they left a deep cloud of pessimists behind them. Their determined stand on the con tentious and all-important question of seniority rights for the strikers apparently was not a whit affected by 36 hours of.contact with the president, members . of his cabinet and strike leaders themselves. The executives left Washington with assertions that they can operate their trains without the services of the. striking men and in face of danger of sympathetic suspension of work on the part of. the engineers, firemen, trainmen and conductors. The labor leaders remained in .Washington with assertions .-that it is j 'IrldiqulnUR^jTor-t-he va'^sondB to contend that tlrey can carry on operations with dissatisfaction existing in all classes of railroad labor and the situation rested today, the beginning of the seventh week, with both sides apparently looking to the white house for any continuance of efforts at peaceable  adjustment. Congress will be back in full working array tomorrow and a meeting of the cabinet will be held, prior to the adoption of any decisive line of policy, it is confidently expected in some quarters that the president will go to congress with a message of the railroad situation before the week is out. Three avenues of action apparently were open to the administration today. Chief of Irish Provisional Government Starts Pro ceedings to End Fighting in Ireland.

Oil City, Aug. 14.-Saturday afternoon Eltpn Bickel, residing on Plum-er street, had a most miraculous escape from death when he plunged from the Reno bridge, which he was painting, a distance of 70 feet, landing head first into the water between several large rocks, the water being only four feet deep. He was engaged with- three others . in painting the structure, standing on �a beam, when in some manner,- he made a mis-step and fell, in his descent turning half over, plunged headlong into the water, his head striking the bottom, but fron\ which he pluckily recovered. It was seen that he was stunned and a rope was thrown over-the side of the bridge, which he grasped. Several of the workmen then ran down and waded out to where Bickel stood, and led him to safety. He was fortunately not injured, but he was badly stunned from his head striking the bottom, but a few feet distant were the rocks which he fortunately missed. He was employed by the Citizens Traction company, which has the Reno bridge under construction. His injuries did not prevent him from put-ing his time in for nearly the balance Well Known Building Con tractor Dies After an Illness of Six Months' Dura tion.   . The death of John J.

London, Aug. 14.-Indications thin afternoon were that the inter-allied, conference on German indemnity was on the verge of a breakdown. -.The British, French and Belgian prem!er� met just before noon but were unable) to break the deadlock. Trie Brltisfr cablnet was Immediately summoned into executive session to consider the advisability of fresh counter proposals. The Central News circulated the report that It had been officially adrhedl that the conference had collapsed. Sir Edward Grigg, private secretary to Premier Lloyd George, refused to� confirm the report that the conference had broken down hut admitted to the International News Service that the situation was most grave. A final attempt to reach a temporary compromise agreement on German indemnity was undertaken at No. 10 Downing street today by Premier Lloyd George, of Britain; Premier Polncare, of France: Premier Theunls, ot Belgium; Foreign Minister Schanzar, of Italy and Baron Ha-yashl, representing Japan. It is understood that benefit proposals are now being discussed for another allied conference in September or October. Strong efforts were made to break the deadlock and reach soma kind of agreement upon proposal for a reparation moratorium in view of the fact ' that the monthly August payment of ' 50,000,000 gold marks by Cermanir wllt,fall due tomorrow. Allied experts, met Saturday and Sunday to draw up satisfactory settlement upon which a temporary moratorium could be granted to Germany. It is admitted on all sides now that settlement will have to be temporary as it has been found impossible to reach'" common grounds for a permanent settlement on the question. The chief propositions involved In the indemnity Issue are: Reform of Germany Reicsh bany to remove government influence, deflation of German money by cutting down of tho output of cUT-rency; collection of German customs by the inter-allied guarantee committee; a 26 per cent levy on German eports: control of German coal mines and state owned forests. Mu is understood that all the premiers, SIgnor Schanzar and the Japan delegate favor another meeting; to attempt to reach a final agreement Upon Indemnity. There was an Intimation that Premier Polncare would agree to Germany's defaulting on the indemnity Installment duo tomorrow on certain conditions.
