LONDON, June 27. "The month
of May was really the most favorable
we have had yet."
This is the comment of Archibald
S. Hurd, the naval writer in the Daily
Telegraph. He adds:
"It is common knowledge that ow
ing to the large number of subma
rines destroyed the enemy paid a
higher price for every ton of ship
ping sunk that in any corresponding
period since piracy was inaugurated."
"The offensive by sea was still be
ing maintained by the Germans dur
ing May with the utmost vigor, but
in spite of the unprecedented number
of submarines sent to sea only 224',
000 tons of British tonnage was lost
as compared with 374,0s00 in May of
last year.
"In spite of the fact that losses
from marine risks were unduly heavy
it can now be said definitely that the
enemy's efforts to cripple us by sea
by an offensive simultaneous to at
tacks on the western front have failed
definitely.
"Although exact figures are want
ing of the sinkings of submarines, it
is known theyre ached a higher gure
last month than in any period since
the submarine campaign began."
LONDON, June 27. The House of
Lords today discussed the proposed
plans for league of nations after. the
war. Viscount Bryce urged the gov
ernment to open an inquiry into the
subject and to let the world know it
was doing so.
Earl Curzon of Kedleston, Govern
ment leader in the House of Lords,
agreed with Viscount Bryce that
there was no reason why, without
waiting for the termination of the
war, the government should not dis
cuss the proposal for a league of na
tions, which he said ought to be called
into existence immediately after the
war ends. To a large extent leagues
of natio.ns existed already.
These leagues, Earl Curzon contin
ued, represented two-fifths of the sub
ject of the human race and formed
at least a nucleus on which it was
to proceed.
Outlining the duties to such a
league, Earl Curzon said that in or
der to be effective it ought to em
brace certainly all great states, but
it was difficult to contemplate Ger
many being admitted.
Describing the inherent difficulties
involved in the idea Earl Curzon said
he desired the House to assent to two
propositions. First, that it was the
desire to prevent wars or, if that was
too Utopian, to limit them and di
minish their horrors, to which end
general concurrence and the ultimate
admission of all the important states
of the world was necessary.
Second, he said, he believed opin
ion in England was rather in advance
of the opinion among the allies, ex
cept possibly the United States. It
therefore was advisable not to pro
ceed too quickly and thus avoid re
buff.
The admission of Germany to a
league of nations. Earl Curzon con
tinued was impoossible until she was
compelled by force of arms to aban
don her world dream. Therefore in
the first place, he suggested there be
two leagues, one friendly league of
allied nations and another elague of
enemy nations. In the friendly league
he suggested that refusal to submit
a quarrel to arbitration should, by
the very fact itself, place the refusing
nation in a state of war with the oth
ers and they should support each oth
er without the need of any interna
tional policy.
These were the lines the govern
ment considered desirable and was
earnestly investigating with the idea
before long of exchanging views with
the allies, Earl Curzon said.

BOY IS FATALLY
HURTBY A TRAIN
Run Over In Chaffee And Loses
Right Leg-Dies At Cape.
Hospital.
Cletus Koch, 10 years old, who was
run over by a freight train in the
yards at Chaffee yesterday morning,
died at St. Francis Hospital here yes
terday evening about 8:30 o'clock.
Th,2 body was prepared for burial and
was shipped back home this morning
accompanied by Mrs. Lulu Koch, the
mother of the boy.
The lad, who lost his right leg un
der the wheels of a freight car was
brought to the Cape yesterday after
noon and taken to the hospital where
several surgeons operated upon him
in an effort to save his life. His con
dition was such that it was feared
he would expire on the operating
table.
According to the mother, who ac
companied her son to the hospital, the
boy was picking up coal in the yards
at Chaffee when he was struck by a
freight car that had been "kicked" off
on a sidetrack. Her son attempted
to jump out of the tracks but was
knocked down and the wheels passed
over his right leg.
Frisco employes, however, gave a
different version of the accident. They
claim the lad was sitting under the
car when it was sot in motion by a
switch engine, and was knocked down
as the car started up.
The right leg of the boy was badly
mangled from the ankle to the knee.
Tho right foot was amputated by the
wheels. Ho received emergency
treatment at Chaffee and was thn
immediately brought to the Cape. At
the hospital here the surgeons ampu
tated tho leg at the hip.
PRAISES WILSON FOR
SPEEDING UP ARMY
Lord Norihcliffe Says United
States Alone Could Beat The
Germans
Paris, June 24. "I have lived both
in Germany and the United States,
and I believe that America alone
could beat the Germans."
Lord Northcliffe made this state
ment today in an article in the Petit
Parisien.
"I have absolute confidence in Tres
ident Wilson," Lord Northcliffe said,
"it is he who must decide the Japan
ese intervention question.
"I remember the president; he had
a one track mind. Last month he sent
250,000 soldiers to Europe, although
he had promised only half that num
ber. "People say that President Wilson
is slow to act, but transporting with
a rush such a vast number of troops
is an enormous undertaking. We un
derstand the significance of the rush
and the vast figures.
"Germany," the British publicist
declared, "is beginning to weaken.
The British, American and French
blockade is now much firmer and is
slowly strangling the enemy."
To the Farmers
Do You Need Help?
T TPON the United States of Ameri
ca has devolved the responsibility
of meeting the food requirements of
the Allied fighting forces.
It is the duty of each community
each organization and each individual
to bend every effort toward the pro
duction and conservation of food and
to encourage the cultivation of addi
tional acreage.
The depletion of man power on
the farm, occasioned by military ser
vice, ship-building and the manufac
ture of war materials has caused a
serious shortage of farm labor in
many sections.
The Government realizing this
condition, is making every effort to
get in close touch with the farmers
and every postmaster, rural carrier
and telephone company has been au
thorized to forward to the nearest
Government employment office your
requests for help.
Do You Need Help
