London, June 10. The nppoarnnce of
waitresses In London clubs, mentioned
In a recent letter, Is not the only w.iy
In which these Institutions have been .
affected by the war. Tho rapid Increase
in the prices of all provisions lm !
, . , , . ...
caused wholesale changes in tho menus
and the prices charged for meals In
clubs where these things have been I
stereotyped for many years.
The London club has never looked to
tho sale of provisions for maklns a
profit; In fact, the rood Is generally
sold nt a loss. Hut with the Inrrease
In the price of nil provisions, that loss
became so substantial that clulw could
no, longer face It. There were, of course.
many contributory causes which havo
seriously affected the llunnclal position
of practically nil Iximlon clubs.
ln the first place a great number
of the younger members are either at
the front or training In camps .Many
members beyond military ago are also
out of London working In some ca
pacity or other for the armies. Then I
again, or the members who are left
there arc many who are feeling "the
pinch," nnd consequently nre spending
much less money. In many clubs, too.
all member', who nre wearing the Klng'
uniform have been placed on half sub
scription. Clubs Pinched l w Itulr.
A very serious loss to the revenue of
clubs Is caused by the "10 o'clock clos
ing" rule. This does not mean, of
course, that the clubs have to close at
10, but. according to the law, they In
common with public houses and restnu
rnnts have to stop selling all alcoholic
liquors at that hour. The otscrvanco
of this law In clubs may perhaps be a
utile less rigorous here and theie than
it i, n ordinary licensed houses, hut
still the law has to be observed, ami
the loss Is perhaps the most serious one
the clubs have to face.
Tho Increase In the price of provisions
Is, of course, felt In every
.ery house througn '
the length and breadth of the country
The price of meat In particular has
gone up enormously. Fat bullocks are
now elllng at 2.1,". and more per hea.l
which Is double the prlre they fetchel

Special Cable Detpatch to Tiir. Sr.
Ixinpon, July 2. For the first time
In several months the name of the Ger
man Crown Prince Is mentioned In the
ottlclnl report of the German headquar
ters staff. The report tells of a battle
In the Argcnne, where the German forces
were led by the Kaiser's eldest son.
It Is considered probable here that the
lack of mention of the Crown Prince ln
the reports for the last few months,
which gave rise to rumors that he was
either dead or badly wounded, has been
I due to the social stigma said to be at
tached to him on account of his aliena
tion from the Crown Princess.
The absence p the Crown Prince's
nnme from the r!orts has been regarded
j a mjstery outside of Oermany, but
a correspondent of The Sun, who has
Just returned fr m Herlln. says there Is
, not even n hint of mvsterv there In that
connection, and that there has never been
