LON DON, October 26 (As
sociated Press) "The whole
of West Ireland is' trembling on
the verge of open, armed rebel
lion against the British govern
ment," wires the correspondent of
the . London Daily Mail from
Dublin. This correspondent in
sists that ; the Irish1 situation is
very ' much ' more serious than
anyone not on the spot believes
and states as his opinion that
trouble may be looked for unless

ernmcnt question that . may be
tinged with Ulsterism, many of
the young R 6 m a n ' Catholic
priests, followers of Devalera,
have been sedulously stirring up
the members of , their parishes
and carrying on' a violent anti
Knglihh and anti-Protestant cam
paign. Now, according to the Daily
Mail corresiondent, these young
priests have suddenly awakened
to the fact that their parishioners
have taken their preachings liter
ally and that everything is pre
paring for another religious revo
lution. The population is out of
band and despite the efforts of
the Roman Catholic clergy to
counteract its own work, the ig
norant peasantry seems determin
ed to rise and oppose its almost
unarmed might against the arm
ed force of the government.
NOW APPLY CHECK
The priests fear now that they
have gone too far in preaching
opposition to the plans , of the
government and are doing every
thing in their power to hold back
the outbreak they dread to see
but which they now expect.
These priests realize that there
can be no possible chance for suc
cess in any revolt, which they
had not expected nor did they de
sire to provoke in their campaign
against a possible anti-Catholic
governmental proposal for Ire
land. Reports from Dublin yesterday,
from another source, claim that
the Sinn Fein leaders boast that
their conference is now spread
out over ten thousand clubs, with
a total membership of a quarter
of a million, and still spreading
throughout Ireland and other
parts of the world where there
arc Irish communities.
Arthur Griffith, one of the Sinn
Fein leaders, denies indignantly
that the Sinn Fein organization is
being financed by German gold or

SUGAR
ECONOMY
CHECK WORLD ViDE
MEW YORK, Ootuber' 26 (Associated Press) To consider means of re
liuving the World Wide shortage of .ntiuar the lntrnational Siiiiar Coin
mission, beaded by George M. Rolph, conferred at length yesterday-after-noon
and last evening with a committee from the sugRr reHuer of America.
Cntil the lx-et sugar production of the West and Northwest reaches its bel(lit
the situation must remain serious an. I it was determined at the outset tout
plans for ei-onomiziag aud conserving the country 's supply muHt be taken ut
once. . v ' . '-. '
The pun-base of a kundrod thousniid tons of luisiana augur by the Amen
cau Huifiir Kefining Company which was reported on Wednesday removed at once
more than a third of tbe probable crop of that stale which is below the normal
and is cHtimated at not. to exceed 27,r.0(Mi tons. -Cuba 'a remaining supply is
variously estimated from l!0O0 to 75,000 tons anil Louisiana anil Cuba raiinot
be counted upon to go far toward relieving the shortano without the beet sugar
output w hich will be above early expectations. Cuba 'a next crop will come in
toward the end of the beet sugar production. My then it is expected that the
situation will have been measurably relieved but meantime conservation. is to be
the watchword. .v
Advice received from Washington said that the food control ad
had determined to curtail the use of sugar and had issued orders whii
in i t confectioners and candy manufacturers, svrup makers, chewing gum muiiu
fneturers, ice cream factories and other similar users of Sugar to pfan-husc in
quantities of only half their former nud uxunl purchases. Through trie curtail
inent of such luxuries the first step in economy are to be enforced.
' NEEDS OF ALLIES SHOWN
The food administration bas isttucd the following:
The sugar supply oa which our allies in Kurope normally draw has been tie
incudoiinlv reduced, so that they munt have recourse to other sources! In. rem
sequence of the shipping situation the area from which they must draw is alo
curtailed, and, as a result, they are driven into those markets front which our
own iiipply normally arises. Furthermore, their own production bas been greatly
iliniiniKlied. Before the.war Kurope supplied in a large pleasure its own needs,
through the production, of beet sugar, as will appear from the following table
showing the average yearly production and consumption for the five years before
the war (UMitf-iyM) tn some of the chief
Cteriiiauy .
Austria . . ,
KiiHsia
United Kingdom .
France
Italy .
Belgium '
Holland ..........
Ah appears from the table, F'run
supporting, while the United Kingdom drew its enure sugar supply from exterior
sources. The supply of the United Kingdom came to the amouut Of about 70
percent from countries from which it is now cut off by the war. Ten percent
.nine f i uin the Kaat Indies aud 20 percent from the United 8t ate and the West
Indies.
REDUCED STJOAB CONSUMPTION
The prospective 1918 crop in Kiunce has diminished to 207,000 ton aud that
of Italy to 75,000 tons, and they are therefore short 590,000 ton. The displace
inent of Uuited Kingdom supplies amount to t,433,0l)O ton; and therefore, m
total, these three allied eouotrie inuxt import about 3,700,000 tons ip order to
mi i it tui n their normul consumption. Of this, 2,000,000 tons must conic from
new source. 1 L
The disturbance of shipping re. lines the tonnage available and drives the
ilciiiund to a largo degree upon the neurext markets, the United Htates ao I tin-
j West ludies. This floUl has since the war iucrcased it production by l,OOii,nuo
tons per annum. How far this demand will interfere with the American supply
I of 4,000,000 tons is difficult to forecast,
lie obtained by tbe Allies from the hant I miles, ami, souomi, because the Allies
: have reduced their consumption to M,ine extent. -I
lu any event, If all the enemies of Germany are to be supplied, there muct
I lie economy in consumption everywhere. The normal American consumption is
nliout HO pounds ier person per annum, nud is just double the Krcueh coituuii
