St. Tammany Farmer
D.. R. Mason, Editor . . . - Proprietor. THE ORDER TO STOP CONSUMPTION OF FUEL.. The stopping of fuel consumption for five dals, by Administrator Gar field, has treated an alarming condition. The people were not prepared for such a Grast:c ordei. Jaut this is no time to criticise or in any way hamper ihe :,roceeus by wohich the war is to be won. It is presumed that a man of the intceligence of Mr. Garrield has considered every result of the order and fully realizes the effect it will have upon business and every distres.ing consequetnce of a strict conforjnance to it. This conception of his undo rstanding is still further emphasized by the fact that the strong opposition in the Senate in nowise dot rred him from carrying out his plan for relieving the fuel situation. But wbhile it is the duty of every C.tizen to give aid and support to war imeasures, it will not prevent inquiry in:o the causes that make such ex tremne measures necessary. If there has been manipulation or specula tion in coal it is bound to be inves..iga.ed. If there is mismanagement of transportation or a poor handling o: facilities, the people will know it and will in.,st that heals of departments shall understand their busi ness--shall be properly qualilicd. The order to step con:umption of fuel may he absolutely necessary, but the provisions of that order .:hould be clear and precise so that unneces sary hardship may xIt be incurred. What fuel is should be delined. We have a manufacturing plant in Covigton that uses its waste wood for fuel, yet it is undecided whether it may run or not, 'notwithstanding its closing would mean a large loss. The St. Tammany Ice and ilanufactur ing Company closed down at 12 o'clock, yet it uses wood for fuel and is not required under the order to shut down at all. All the inconvenience to users of electric power could have been prevented by a perfectly clear definition, although it takes some stretch of the imagination to include such public utility in the order. There are uncertainties in the order, however, that should have ,been clearly defined. We believe the people will stand solidly behind anything the Govern ment may find it necessary to do to win the war, and that they winl take their medicine without complaint, but on the other hand they will require that unnecessary deprivation shall not occur. The question of whether automobiles and other fuel consumers in com mon use should be included or under what conditions excluded does not seem settled. BOBO, nIE MIscMIgvOu5 MONK.

Reassurance of Loyalty Is Fvin.cJ in Note Given Out by the State Department. Washington, Jan. 17.-Rea.s.ur ance of Brazil's determuauonu no, to embarass her co-be..igcrents iby any premature endorsement of pea.s plans is contained in her reply :o Iope Benedict's peace note, a co;)y of which was made public toiay I, the State Department. The reply said Brazil could not exprcss an iso lated opinion since "she has beome entirely identinled--feling it her duty to be so-with the nations 'hich now are her allies." Brazil became a obeligerent, the note said, because Germany arought the war to America, and he:' action was nof taken for material gain nor marked hby any hatred of Germany. MRS P. O.

DISCLOSES GERMAN SECRET REGULATION OF THE PRESS LContinued from page 1) Stranaky, Korvosez, and Romanzak, are forbidden." Last spring a large number of Russians were repatriated from Switzerland through Germany with the definite purpose oP spreading German propaganda in Russia.

"Ohers of food from the occupied 2astera ,war zone may not be publish cd. The acceptance of such adver t.sements is forbidden." I)iscitssion of American Troops. And on foreign affairs: S "Petit Parisien informs us that live American divisions, numbering 125,000 mon, may be expected in France in the autumn of 1917. It is urgently requested not to produce this information without some com ment. We do not wish to underesti mate the ability of America to ac complish things, but must not, on n the other hand, overestimate it. In order to bring a division over from America 75,000 tons must make the trip twice. Therefore, from the mere fact of lack of space the trans portation of such a body of troops within certain fixed limits is im possible. Moreover, it is impossible to train these troops properly by autumn. These facts which have recently been discussed in the Ger man war news can not be too strong ly emphasized in the discussion of d that French news. "The press has often 'been request ed to omit the sensational puiblica tion of unimportant reports or re e spectively reports capable of misin ' terpretation. "Urgent cause exists to point out that it can be, on the other hand, often important and right to give - events and reports their proper nr meaning through due emphasis. i5 "For instance, recently the Eng 1- lish theft of cipher telegram in the 1, case of the H-offmaa-Grimm was in no wise sufficiently stigmatized."

In the interest of a victorious car rying through of the war, which is endangered by every stoppage of work, expressions of the press which recommend a strike or express them selves otherwise in favor of a strike are forbidden. Utterances which are directed against strikes are indeed not sub ject to censorship, but it is supposed thereby that they are kept free from immoderate sharpness which could offer material for irritating the leo pie.

It is requested to aliways make such news as Eng lish re-orts and to assume an atti tude of reserve toward them and oc casionally to add thereto a critical word. The Austrians on the Isonzo front have had very good successes. It is 'lesired to oontinual'!ly take notice 'hereof. The whole strength of Italy is fighting against Austria wh'le Aus ria is forced ,to use strong forces in other directions. The Austrian success is naturally also pleasing to us entirely aside from the satisfac tion which it must awaken if our allies accomplish successes with their carrying on of the war. It is there fore requested to discuss continually the occurrences on the Isonzo in this sense . It is requested that 'positive inter pretation with great emphasis be gir en the declarations on the 12th of June by the Dresidents of the two Alsace-Lorraine 'Chambers as the rc quested answer to Ribot's speech, and to avoid all discussion of this which could weaken this positive valuation.

It is desired that it should be clearly and distinctly put in the fore ground that the enemy offensive has. utterly failed on all fronts, that the entente has no alternative but to at temp't ,a new offensive, as the enemy's statesmen are still against peace. The other reason (a further reason) for haste is the continually increas ing lack of tonnage. As the entente is very dependent on water (the sea) for its forwarding, the freight space intended for the civil population must be added to those transports. In one of the future lsrmes it might be mentioned that the present situa tion in Russia has the a'ppearance of :being caused by the entente, with the view to her (Russia's) continuing for a time-perhaps until the actual participation by the Americans. How long that will be remains to be seen. It is of consequence (a matter of im portance) to set forth the opinion that a new offensive .ill speedily take place as amounting to a con e STANGA MERCANTILE CO. ABITA SPRINGS, LA.

The question about the secret agreements between Russia and her allies must not be allowed to rest (i. e., Ibe lost sight of). The hostile Governments try to frustrate the ef fect of all pu'blications bearing upon the agreements with all the mean3 at their disposal, in order that their people may not learn the war aims and the reasons why they were egged on into the war. Theer is no doubt as to the existence of such secret agreements, and it there are discuss ed as being a matter of course the people will ultimately demand of their governments the publication of these agreements. In referring to the Skager 'Rak battle, it is of the utmost import ance to use the greatest energy in freeing the neutfal from' the pre tended English supremacy of the sea. June 2, 1917.

Take America "Sedously." Pr. II-80+50. While the news about America's wiar preparations, such , as the or 'ganizaltion and outfitting of an army of 1,000,000 strong to reinforce the French-English front, is looked uop on, in that form, as "bluff," the spreading of which may unfavorably affect the opinion of the German peo ple, yet the fact must not be over looked, on the other hand, that the United States, with the support of its capacity for material and industrial management, is arming itself for war with great energy and tenacity. The war preparations iii America are therefore, as was 'Intmated In the Reichstag at the time, not at all to 'be made little of, but must be taken seriously without on that account being made a source of worry. A few days ago the Austro-Hun garian press was left free to discu's the war aims. We can unreservedly indorse the war aims given out in the majority of the Austro-Hungari an press. Of course the fully war ranted and not in~onsiderable war alms which are needed for the con servation and development of the confederated monarchy as well as foq a world pelee can only ,be achiev edtf Austria-Hut.icry adheres to her understanding with the German Em pire and its alfies and with positive reference to her military economy and political forces announces clear ly and positively her firm wilt to hold out and win, as in the case with the overwhelming a of the Ger-' man people., Su s on this, polit to our prens reeommead6d. The high command of the Army has ,been of late drawn to an extra ordinary degree into the discussion of political (points, ,particularly those of a domestic character. At the re newed request of the high command, it is, therefore, asked that it be left out of all talk on political matter, and abetter still, not to mention it at all in connection with such things.
