With American Forces on the Vologda Railway. Nov. 25, via London. Dec. 30.— (Correspondence of The Associated Press)—When operating through this thinly populated forest and tundra region along the railway leading from Archangel to Volokda. the American troops fighting the bolshevik! in the north Russian front are living, when free from trench and blockhouse duty, in tiny Russian freight cars.
In this they are imitating the Russian soldiers, who, since the revolution. have commandeered, freight cars wherever they found them and remodeled them for dwellings.
When the box ears are fitted up with stoves, they are known as **top-(luck**." They are not particularly warm in zero weather, but a welcome change from the cold trenches in the snow.
The forests here are dotted with small blockhouses, built almost on the model of the blockhouse forts of the old American wars with the Indians, but have the added advantage i of being fairly shrapnel proof.
The fighting down along the rail-I wa yline from the north has been. ♦ since its beginning last August, a combination of modern warfare, with trenches and modern arms and of bush fighting wherein surprise attacks in the weeds figured proml-I nently.

Mexico City, Jan 25. (Correspondence of the Associated Presa)—The record of Climes attributed to the supposed organisation that is popularly know n as the "gray automobile j robber band" bas been augmented by the killing in the Federal Penitentiary of Francisco Oviedo. Oviedo had been a prisoner for a year and a half and was accused of being one of the sub chiefs of the robber band which lias operated Here , for two years or more. Ile was slain with a dagger by a negro prisoner who was charged with nine other murders.
The killing of Oviedo places another obstacle in the path of the authorities who for two years have been trying to discover the supposed iii .hi or men higher up who direct the cperations of the robber band which uses a gray automobile in making their raids.
Six men, including Oviedo were held in the penitentiary accused of being members of the band. Several weeks ago one of them, Rafael Mer-cadante, is said to have offered to confess. Shortly afterward he died froth an unknown cause in his cell Two weeks later Oviedo offered to tell what he knew and two days after ward he was killed. Foyr others who remained in prison have not offered any statements to the authorities.
The gray automobile, late 1916 and early in 1917 figured in numerous daring and productive raids. Posing as agents of the district government and bearing forged credentials the occupants would stop in front of a house, enter it on the pretext of searching for arms or robbers, or with no pretext at all, take what they fancied and drive away. At the height of their career the bandits, pursued by a police motor car, waged a running fight with their pursuers through the Paseo de la Reforma, one of the principal highways of the city. Several deaths resulted from the Interchange of rifle shots.
The operatives, however, finally were surrounded while engaged in robbing a house in the foreign colony. But each time that it appeared that the truth was near disclosure, the principal witness counted on by the state to establish its case, dies.
LONDON, Jan. I. (Correspondence of the Associated I England's dog army rendered gallant service In the war. Many a soldier owes his life ; tq^some poor, uncared-for, stray dog, i For nearly two years dogs were em- > ployed by the British as messengers, as sentries and as guards.
Early in 1917 a war dog school of • instruction was established by the British War "Office, and Lieutenant-j Colonel Richardson, who has devoted I his life to training dogs for military and police purposes, was appointed j commandant of the school. Game-: keepers, hunt servants and shop-1 herds were called up from the army to assist in the work of instruction.
After a thorough training in Eng- j land, the dogs were sent to France, j and on the battlefields their skill, I courage and tenacity amazed the army. Often wounded in the perform-* anc# of their duties, they never/alt-i ered while strength remained to carry on. The official record of their heroic work tells ot successful in es- I sage-currying through darkness, mist rain and shell-fire over the most <1 if- j ficult ground. In a few minutes' time j dogs have brought messages over ; ground that would take a soldier ; runner hours to cross.
During the great German advance j last spring part of the British line in front oi a famous French town was cut off by severe enemy barrage. A messenger dog was released with an urgent appeal for reinforcements. lr ran two miles in ten minutes. The result was that a French colonial division was sent up and prevented a disaster. The messenger was a Highland sheep dog.
Another dog with a message ran nearly four miles in twenty minutes and still another in the same time carried back from the front a map of an important captured position, when a man would have taken an hour and a half to bring It in.
The dogs which have been found most successful in war work are collies, sheep dogs. lurches and airedales. and eroses of these varieties, while in a number of cases Welch and Irish terriers have given excellent results.
The work of sentry dogs has been valuable, especially in the Balkans. One gave warning of an enemy scout 300 yards away. On many occasions dogs have given warning of enemy patrols long before the soldier sentries were aware of their presence.
Large numbers of dogs have been used for guard duty, many on the Italian front.

RILL NEARS PASSAGE.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.— It is expected that the Indian appropriation bill will be passed by the hoi%* by tomorrow' night. Today the house adopted an item of $15,000 for continuing the competency commission to the Five Tribe*, with the added provision that makes the work mandatory. For the suppression of liquor traffic $125,000 is appropriated. I-ast year the law made fhe possession of liquor In the Indian country a crime w*here the introduction was prohibited by statute or treaty. Owing to the construction given the term “Indian country.” which was held to be restricted allotment, it was impossible for the Federal authorities to obtain convictions. The present bill makes possession in the “Indian country,” or “where prohibited by statute or treaty,” a crimea so that it will have a fixed effect over ail of ormer Indian territory whether the liquor is found on a restricted allotment or not. Some of the house lawyers hold that the provision is sufficient to convict a person who is even traveling through that section of Oklahoma, although he may be an interstate traveler, providing he is caught with intoxicating liquor in his possession. A shipment through that portion of the state, however, It is believed would be protected under the law governing Interstate commerce.

WIL HAR GERMAN
FROM MILWAUKEE SCHOOLS
By the A Mort* ted Press
Milwaukee, Wiz., Jan. 24. The teaching of the German language in Milwaukee grade schools may disappear entirely when the new semester begins in February. In only one school in the city now is German being taught and under the resolution of the school board abolishing foreign language instruction it would be discontinued at the end of the term in June.
In 1916, 200 teachers were employed to give the instruction; in the German language to 30,000 pupils and at the end of 1918, only one teacher was employed to instruct 400 pupils in the German language.
One of the final instances in connection with the elimination of German instruction came with the recent announcement that Leo Stern, assistant superintendent of schools in charge of the foreign language department, had resigned. The school board last August voted to abolish the foreign language department, at the end of the present year. Mr. Sterns term expires June SO. Mr. Stern in his letter to the school board said that after a service of 35 years in the Milwaukee schools, he felt that he was entitled to a rest.
Mr. Stern was president of the Wisconsin branch of the German America!' alliance from the time of its organization in 1906 until it was disbanded in 1917. He was also at one time a vice-president of the national organization.
