GERMANS UTILIZE HINDENBURG MILL tine Thne French Sawmill That For Years Had Lain Inactive Put In Operation. (Correspondence of The Associated Press.) In The Areronnes. -France. Dec. 24. Several miles behind the front, yet near enough to it so that its products can be transported to the trenches with little difficulty, lies the so-called IHindenburg Mill a one time French sawmill that for years had lain inac tive, and which has been untilized by the Germans for fitting up their positions. Every bit of machinery in the mill French most of it requisitioned from similar establishments in all arts of the Argonnes Forest. The Jermans estimate that they have ent not more than 2,000 marks in tehabjlitating the institution which day is turning out 17,000 to 30,000 irks worth of furniture a month. The mill originally was purely a saw xill, but departments have been added i 'which stoves are being made for ve trench shelters at the front, and in iichimany metal parts are moulded r' the manifold needs of the flght- h&jnen a few miles away. Several score of soldiers, carpenters hTJnachinists by trade, have been as- rned to the Hindenburg Mill, and daily, turning out' by the whole- 'le window sashes, chairs, , book ie's,1 desks, tables, and other things jrrjthe tfrpoms" where the 'German lUera'? at leisure, spends his time. (Correspondence of The Associated Press.) Constantinople, Nov. 21. The de struction, a few days ago, of a Brit ish submarine of the "cruiser" class, was due largely to the fact that on a captured French submarine, the Tur quoise, were found certain secret in structions concerning the operations of the Allied submarine fleet in the Sea of Marmora. These documents, besides naming the Marmora coast points where supplies could be ob tained by the Allied submarines, also threw a light on the movements of these vessels. In pursuance of the information thus obtained, the Ger man submarine U. B. 14, waylaid the British undersea "cruiser", and sent a torpedo into her side. Twenty-four men were drowned, while the craft's three officers and another five of the crew, most of them wounded, were made prisoners. That the Allied submarines in the Marmora were being supplied with necessities in the lake itself had been the contention of the Ottoman author ities for some time. It had been im possible, however, to obtain accurate information. Since it was felt that an end had to be put to this state of af fairs, the Turkish government de clared the entire Marmora coast a "closed zone," into which no ship of any sort could venture without a spe cial permit and a representaitve of the Ottoman marine department aboard. Nevertheless, a large number of Greeks in some cases also Turks, ventured into the forbidden waters. Heavy sentences of penal servitude, in some instances terms of eight years, were imposed upon them. Notwith standing this the traffic continued un til quite recently. Coal As Fuel. The papers found on the Turquoise show also that the newer and larger types of British submarines use coal as fuel. In the list of "bases" in the Marmora sea are several places where coal could be obtained. Turkish pa trol boats had reported that they had seen submarines from whose funnels coal smoke issued. At the time this was not believed. It has been learned since then that the principle of loco motion, above and below the surface, remain the same, with the difference that the submarine so obtaining its power must, while in the zone of the enemy, replenish its electric storage batteries at night, when nothing but sparks from the funnel could reveal its presence. In connection with the efforts of the j Turkish authorities to restrict mili tary activity on the Sea of Marmora, a rather amusing incident occurred last July. The officers of a certain Ger man! 'submarine were in the habit of dining at one of Pera's best hotels. So did the officers of an English subma rine on at least one occasion. At that time the Turkish government, as it does even today, permitted the sub jects of hostile governments to move freely about Constantinople. Dining one day at this hotel, the commander of a German submarine was given by the waiter a letter which bore his full name and address. The waiter said that on the previous evening the let ter had been left by a party of five, one of whom seemed to be an Ameri can.' . Greetings From Officers. The letter contained greetings from the officers, of the British submarine to the officers of the German subma rine. It was couched in friendly terms, showing further that the sponsors of the letter were of a sportive turn of mind. They w-ould meet some day, joked the writer of the message, and the nthey would see who would get the best of it Whether or not the waiter was right in his assertion that an Ameri can had been in the party, is hard to say. At any rate, the Turkish govern ment began to keep close watch on the United States stationship Scorpion. While the vessel still lay at its moor ings off Kabatash, Turkish motorboats patrolled the adjacent waters con stantly, while at the jetty, which the crew and visitors of the Scorpion had to use, police officials inquired closely into the purpose of every trip to or from the vessel. A little later the Turkish government, on the lea that the moorings of the Scorpion were no longer safe, insisted that the vessel take a new station in the Golden Horn beyond the new and old bridges, at a point where British submarines could not endanger her. The protests of Ambassador Morgenthau against this uncomplimentary procedure on the part of the Turkish government were useless. The commander of the Scor pion, Captain Morton, said that the suspicions on which the Turkish gov ernment had acted were devoid of all justification. TAKING OF BELGRADE SPLENDID SPECTACLE Inhabitants of Semlin, Hungary, Could See Every Move in Desperate Undertaking. f Correspondence of The Associated Press.) Semlin, Hungary, Dec. 26 It is not two months since shells were fall ing in this old Hungarian city, but the civilian population has already settled back into the humdrum rou tine of normal city life.

AND DEALERS EVERYWHERE mind the inhabitants of the stirring scenes of the early October days. Perhaps never in the world's his tory has so splendid a spectace been staged free of charge for civilian spectators as was the taking of Bel grade. From their housetops the inhabitants of Semlin could see every move in the desperate undertaking. The broad river lay in front of them, and on the other side, perched some two hundred feet above the stream, rose the Kalemegdan, the old Bel grade fortress with its white tower and its walls dating from the days when the Turks were still masters of the city. To their left and behind them were the Austro-Hungarian artillery posl- entire houses into the air and making great craters within the walls of the Kalemegdan. Finally, last scene in the first act of the tragedy, the inhabitants could see the German, Austrian and Hun garian flags thrust out through the apertures in the top of the still un destroyed white tower. This was ear ly in the morning of October 9, when the united troops reached the tower and a German soldier carved his name into a beam in the tower, with the date and hour, and added the i title of the old Lutheran hymn, "nun danket alle Gott;" (Now praise Ye All Our God.) Not until after the fighting had passed beyond the crest of the Avala tions, and off to the right the Ger- mountain, southward of Belgrade, was man guns were hurling their projec tiles against the Serbian capital. The Austro-Hungarian regiments crossed the river in plain view for the naked eye, and a halfway g-ood glass enabled one to watch the Germans farther to ward the west, making their bloody struggle to cross over the Gypsy Is land. The inhabitants could see thinned battalions of Hungarians, ly ing with their feet still in the river on the Belgrade side of the stream, held in check by a murderous rifle and machine gun Are from the old walls of Kalemegdan. They could see damaged pontoons full of dead men, floating down the stream with the swift current. The heights south ward from Belgrade were ploughed by heavy projectiles searching for the Serbian artillery positions. Serbian guns were dropping their shells into Semlin and to the rear of the city, trying vainly to find the guns that were gradually battering down the de fenses of the Serbian capital. The Austrian "thirty-point-fives." the twelve-inch mortars, were throwing the curtain rung down on this awful entertainment. PLAN RELIEF FOR PRISONERS OF WAR Movement Started in Genera to Make More Adequate Provisions for Welfare of Detained Men. (Correspondence of The Associated Press.) Geneva, Switzerland, Dec. 4. A movement has been started in Geneva to make more adequate provision for the welfare of prisoners in detention camps of the various belligerent coun tries. The present winter is bringing with it increased suffering and hard ship to countless thousands of men, and these it is proposed to endeavor to alleviate. It is a well known fact that there were insufficient prepara tions in the beginning for dealing with such large numbers of interned men. both soldiers and civilians, as rapidly became necessary to care for, and as a result living conditions in many de tention camps today entail suffering rnd sickness to a degree realized only by actual observers. The International Red Cross com mltte of Geneva is behind this move ment, and headquarters for the con duct of the work have been estab lished at La Petite Pierriere, Cham besy, near Geneva. The main object is to succor suffering prisoners of war. It is believed that the admission into each civil and military camp of special delegates belonging to neutral coun trieis would be of great assistance in bringing about an improvement of ex isting conditions, without in any way interfering with the necessary local organization and discipline. These neutral delegates are to be chosen from the professions, such as doctors, lawyers, etc. They are to make them selves useful in many ways at the camps where they are to have the privilege of free access and sojourning for a specified length of time. It is felt by the promoters of this idea that, insomuch as each belliger ent country has an equal interest in establishing and maintaining' a wise and just method of meeting detention camp requirements, and at the same time to mitigate the suffering of the captives and the anxieties of their relatives, that the governments con cerned will meet with them on the common ground of humanity and help. The actual negotiations with the states in question, looking to the carrying of this project into effect, will be undertaken by the interna tional committee.
