Country Plans to Build
4,000,000 Tons of Ships
Pans, July 27.?David Lloyd Georgo,
the British Premier, to-day gave a
breakfast to a number of editors of!
important French newspapers, during
which he conversed fully with them on
the military situation and replied to
questions. The "Temps" this afternoon
gives a summary of his talk.
Mr. Lloyd Gtorga said that Great:
Britain now had bataraan 6,000,000 and
5,500,000 soldiers enrolled, without
counting between -100,000 am!
longing to the navy anil marly 1.000,
000 men from the dominions and col?
onies, ?'rant Britain had placed at the)
tion of her allies, he added, from
M) to 2,000.000 tons of merchant
N? *t year1 I oildlng programme
for merchants, which
gun, amounts to -: - , or twice
?is much as in a good year during peace
time. Alluding to the campaign a*
submarine-;, Mr. Lloyd George said:
"The diminution in shipping losses
i is conteatablf?, It is impossible to
. m this subject without paying
? to the aid given by 'lie \
ii an Navy, both regarding the ? :
? of convoys and by torped
, which have rendered on
invalual le aen ice."
Continuing, Mr. Lloyd George said
th.-it five million nien and women wan
now cngag. d in v;ar work in the United
Kingdom. Mon. women could be em?
ployed if the trades unions did not fear
the competition of women after the
war, but other countries seemed to have
experienced the same dificultiea, It
could be said that at the preaent timo
no English industry is working for in?
dividual interests, except in agricult?
Although the English people sincere-,
ly hoped that the present waf would
be the last war, Mr. Lloyd George con?
tinued, the country intended to avoid
its previous error and in the future
would be able to aapporl itaelf. Ha
. | ? recognised that the lateat newa
from i waa not good news, but
that Kussia already had shown that

Gold from People
All Jewelry in Westphalia
Ordered To Be Handed Over

Amsterdam, July 27.--A frontier cor

that all privately owned gold ornaments
and jewelry in Westphalia have been
requisitioned this week and must be
hrnded over to the banks.
The daily recurring public notices,
printed in conspicuous type in German
newspapers, entreating citizens to aid
the fatherland by giving it their gold,
evidently are not producing results.
The "Weser Zeitung," of Bremen, pub?
lishes a renewed appeal, complaining
especially that the well-to-do public
still fails to realize the situation, and
that all gold must be handed in.
The newspaper cites examples of
members of the German imperial and
royal priaeoly houses sacrificing their
BOld and jewelry, and says competent
authorities calculate that .100.000.000 to
-.00,000,000 gold coins are being obsti?

value of gold ornaments ia estimated a*.

War Expenditures To Be
Washington, July 27.?Senate and
House conferrees on tho food control
bill made such substantial progress to
; day that a complete agreement seemed
probable by to-morrow.
The conferrees virtually agreed to
strike out the plan for a Congressional
joint committee on war expenditures,
. opposi-il by President Wilson, and to
accept the Senate amendment authoriz?
ing tho President to tix the price of
coal and coke and to take over mines.
There was also t? virtual agreement on
the Senate amendment to regulate the
making of contracts for the government
by the Defence Council's advisers.
Sentiment recardinj** the liquor
amendments seemed to be that Con
grftt should be satisfied to put the ban
on whiskey, to authorize the com?
mandeering of distilled spirits in bond
i so far as necessary for government pur?
poses, and to authorize the President to
prohibit the making of beer and light

wheat be left to the food administra?

cent of the population of the United
States was interested in a high price
for wheat; 95 per cent was interested
in a reasonable price for bread.
The council sees no immediate pros?

Ottawa, Ont., July 27.?An attack by
three Austrian cruisera on a line of
British drifters employed in guarding
anti-submarine neta in the Straita of
Otranto, on May 15, is described in a
London despatch to Reuter's Ottawa
agency. It says:
"The drifters, in eight divisions of
about six boats each, were formed
along a lino running roughly east and
west. Each carried a crew of ten men
and ono small gun. In one case the
enemy appears to have acted with
chivalry toward the little craft, sig?
I nailing by means of blasts of the siren
? nnd by dipping the flag that the crews
must abandon their vessels. This
cruiser approached to within one hun
ilred yards of the Gowanlea and or?
dered her crew to take to the boats.
"Skipper J. Watt replied by ordering
i full speed ahead and. calling on the
! crew for three cheers, commanded
; them to light to a finish. They
1 manned the gun and iired with good
effect until a .shot from the cruiser
disabled the gun. They hung on under
' heavy tire until the cruiser passed out
j of ranee.
"The Gowanlea then proceeded to
. the assistance of the badly damaged
Leondia, which had f?>ur men killed
and three wounded, but whose skipper
though threu times wounded, remained
| at hia post. Meanwhile the remain?
ing cruisers had opened a devastating
fire on the centre of the line.
"The crew of the Admirable only
abandoned their vessel after her boiler
exploded and her whole house had
'. been shot away. Kven then A. Gordon,
a second hand, scrambled back on
board with the evident intention of
tiring the gua single-handed, but was

Selby were not abandoned by their
crews until they foundered.

brought them through the action.

been sunk in a raid by Austrian
cruisers in the Adriatic Sea and that
