lion of coal, Mora than 1,500,000 tons
of eoal a year is tbe estimated saving
even if the measure is In effect only
for the shortest period that has been
suggested; and the saving in fuel oil
is equally impressive, t . '. ''
The savings would occur in both di
rect and indirest ways. The amount,
of coal that will be saved if the clock'
is moved ahead one hour would differ
with tbe method ia which daylight
saving is used. Calculations comput
ed for different periods, based .upon
the actual British experience In the
summer of 191(1, and modified by allow.,
"nee for differences in latitude, give the
following savings in eoal for tbe Unit
ed States:
(11 Saving of 150 tioiirs of a yearly
average of l,.'t'J0 per year requiring ar
tificial illumination in the V. S. i.e.
hv daylight saving between second Sun
day in April and last Sunday in Sep
mber: In electricity for lighting. 6rti
100 tons: in gas for lighting, 144,000
tons. Total, K04 000 tons.
(2) Saving of 190 hours from the
yearly average (i.e., with clocks
moved ahead one hour between April
1 and November .'10t; In electricity
for lighting, 8:1(1.000 tons; in gas
for lighting, IH.1,000 tons. Total, 1,019,
000 tons.
(:t) Saving of 198 hours from the
yearly average (i.e., with clocks ad
vanced one hour throughout year): In
electricity for lighting, 871,000 tons;
in gas for lighting, 190,000 tons. Total,
1,0(11,000 tous.
The saving iu coal ured for these
purposes could lie represented approx
imately by the following percentages:
(I)' With snviug of 150 hours;
Amount of coal used for lighting
through gas and electricity, approxi
matelv . 15,750,0(10 tons; amount .saved,
804,000 tons; percentage saved, 5 per

Amount of coal used for lighting

A Notable .Example
TbHM figures do not iucluds tbe
saving which would be obtained at iso
luted plants and at elentric. power
plant which sell power for lighting
To be borne in mind too is th fact
that the estimate has been made on a
basis which assumes that the use of
electric energy and gas for lighting is
spread evenly over the country, where
as as a mutter of fact 57,000,000 elec
trie lights out of a total df 76,000,001
in the country are in Mew England.

LONDON, MarcJi .lW(Aso
aled Press) Throughout
the Gernian Empire the press of
the ou,itry in a ipwering rage
at tlie tiJUmatum vvurch has been
presented to .stib Nethcrlaarls by
the United States and Great Bri
tain relative io tbe use of Dutch
merchant shipping in the 6ubma-
nne danger xonet is reported ny
the correspondent of, the Ex
change Ttpgraph Service at Co
penhagen. Comment on the ulti
matum is. general and very bitter,
he says. ,
First the German press takes
exception to the offer of the Uni
ted States to furnish grain in rc
tirn for shf'PFm8 now lying idle
:n the ports of the United States
jvith the pfoviso that such ship
ing may be used where tbx Uni
'cd Stat es "and Gr eat Britain may
equirc. They demand that Hol
and shall reject tin's proposal
'orthwitTv .and, declare that to
vicjd to it w,ij,lj.e a breach tif ncu
Lrality with Germany. If the
Netherlands government, shall ac-
of the
tiey demand that -the-German
;6vernment 'take the most dras
tic counter measures against Hol
It comes clearly home to the
Germans through the press arti
cles that the taking over of a mil
lion ton's, of Dutch shipping by
he United States and Great Bri
tain will Undo a great part of
lich success as Germany lias won
by means of its unrestricted sub
marine policy. They also point
out that if the Allies do this i;i
.he case of Holland there is noth
ing to prevent their taking over
md compensating the owners the
.hips of Denmark, Norway and
Sweden in the same, way. They
all tile ultimatum little short of
i declaration of war against the
neutrals of Northern 'Kurope and
trge them to stand united against
iiuh "aggressions and compul
sion". If tlie 'Net'lierWds 'uhall not
