Lanky Australian
Permits One Fritz
To Take Furlough
At the British Front, Sept.
. 25.?British officers are tell
ing a story about a lanky
good natured Australian who
brought in a band of pris
oners. He noticed all were
happy but one. He told a
prisoner who spoke English
to ask the sullen "Heinie"
what he was grouchy about.
The solemn one said he was
blue because he was to go on
leave the next day and want
? i to see his wife and chil
dren.
"Oh," drawled the Aus
tralian, "is that what's ailing
him? Well, its tough luck to
be caught on the eve of a fur
lough.
"I guess the British gov
ernment won't fret itself to
death over one humble Fritz,
seeing the huntin's been so
good of late. Tell your
gloomy friend to beat it
while the going's good and
not to linger before I change
my mind."
Bystanders say they could
hardly see that Heinie through
the dust his lightning quick
feet were making.

glum, to dine with King Leopold.
Efforts of Mr. and Mrs. Storer to ad
vance Ireland's Interests a'so pro
voked criticism.
A letter from the Pope on Ameri
canism was made the ground for a
sharp difference of opinion between
Ireland and Archbishop Corrigan re
specting its Interpretation. A Cath
olic newspaper, printed in England
about the same time published a let
ter from its Rome correspondent
which called Archbishop Ireland an
apostate and asserted his views
"would bring him ln league with
Hebrews and Freemasons." Ire
land's reply was that the attack had
been made by Jesuits.
Ireland strongly championed re
ligious freedom in America. He was
democratic to a degree. Visiting
royalty and dignitaries in England.
France. Ireland. Belgium and Italy
In 190*. he represented himself as
"?imply an American prelate."
Am?ricanisai ?in? Friends.
His strong outspoken Americanism
won to him th? friendship of manv
who differed from some of his ex
pressed radical views. He staunchly
advocated military training and pre
paredness before America entered "fho
war. ?
He made frequent attacks upon the.
fellaclea of socialism and did not
hesitate to defend capital when occa
sion arose. He said at a dinner In
St. Paul:
"The church Is no enemy of wealth.
Wealth well uaed i? a gift of the
Almighty."
The establishment, enlargement and
the strengthening of the scope ot
parochial schools occupied much of
hi? attention. He defended his
course in thi? in the following worais:
"Th? evil in America Is the decay cf
religion, and. In logicai sequence,, the
decay of morals. In both cases' the
cause of the decay Is the enforced
secularism of ?tate sects. The issue of
Americanism and Catholicism Is with
u? always and is needless. Its solu
tion is ?ood citizenship, wli!;l> Is the
hope of America's safety."
Archbishop Ireland displayed ardent
patriotism during the present war.
In thi? he consistently followed the
stand he had taken tn opposing ihe
Faribault plan. Tbe plan resulted
in a petition to the Vatican to estab
lish German parishes In ine L'nlted
States, with parochial schools to
which should be Issued otdei-s that
the German language be taught.
Combatting this in iiome th? Arch
bishop maintained that "Catholics in
Arnvrlca are Americans. Our coun
try is not Poland to be partitioned at
the good pleasure of foreigners."
Archbishop Ireland made ?tauch
fi lends amon?' the .clergy of Washing
ton, and always kept in close touch
with those priests in whom he was
] particularly interested. Among the
pastors of this city the archbishop al
ways maintained an especially warm
friendship for the late Rev. Dr. D. J.
Stafford, of St. Patrick's Church, and
the Rev. Eugene A. Hannan, now rec
tor of St Martin's Church. On the
occasion of his many visits to the
("apit. I the distinguished prelate in
variably visited Father Stafford and
Father Hannan to encourage their
local activities, and It Is said that he
wept when the news of Father Staf

_ . ..
Local Red Cross Chapter
?Adopts Modified Gas
Mask.
Spanish influenza in the army
camps yesterday took toll of 5,324
ne?v cases, with an additional 644
new cases of pneumonia, frequent
ly a complication of Spanish in
fluenza. The total Bumbcr of in
fluenza cases in the camps to date
is 29,002.
The total for the civilian popu
lation is not yet known. Surgeon
General Rupert Blue, of the I'nited
States Public Health Servcie, ex
plained that the disease was not
??eportable by low, but that twenty
six States thus far arc included in
the epidemic.
Yesterday for the vrst time cases
were reported from the Pacific
Coast, epidemic in the State of
Washington and sporadic in Cali
fornia.
HOSPITALS OVERCROWDED.
The alarming spread of the
world epidemic so quickly in the
United States and the overcrowd
ing of hospitals in epidemic cen
t ers.brought about a hasty meet
ing today of the medical chiefs of
the army, navy. Red Cross and
United States Public Health Serv
ice to discuss means of aiding the
civilian medical authorities.
Secretary McAdoo yesterday
afternoon directed Dr. Blue to
open the Marine Hospital at Wil
mington, K. C, for influenza cases
from thai fhinyards there.
Dr. Blue, when seen last night,
emphasized the need of isolation
of the individual. He said that the
present need of industry and the
comparatively small proportion of
the . population as yet affected
would not ?.?arrant the isolation of
communities by quarantine.
Go home, go to bed. call a physician,
stay In bed till better and Indoors till
well." is the Surge-on (Te?erais advice
to those who fall victim to the dis
ease.
Prevention he outlined as likely only
by avoiding crowds and crowded
places where contact with o thcrs
spreads the disease, by sneezing and
coughing; by keeping oneself clean In
clothing and person, especially of th?
nose and mouth. The germ la car
ried to others from the nose and
mouth and the only probable means
by which the germs enter the system
is by the nose or mouth.
The newest means of combatting
the spread of the disease is announced
by the Washington chapter of the Red
Cross in the form of a germ mask
The device Is a modified form or the
gas mask, it is mad? of four layers
of thin clean gauie, arranged so as
to cover the mouth and nose of the
wearer and designed to act as a
filter asain?t germs.
It Is stated that the Potomac divi
sion of the Red Cross has ordered
45,000 of the masks for use of the
soldiers in training In the vicinity
of Washington and for patients at
the Walter Reed Hospital in this city.
Aready ion of them have been sent
to the hospital. They are now being
made by prominent women of Woah
ington at the local surgical dressing
station of the Red Cross.
If the contrivance proves an ef
fective preventatlve measure. It Is
believed It will he adopted at the
various camps throughout the coun
try where Spanish influenza has dis
appeared.

RUSSIA CO-OPERATIVE
MOVEMENT THRIVING
Long-Established Societies Furnish
Stable Element in Bolshevik Chaos.
There is economic strength ln the
Russian co-operative movement The
growth of the co-operative societies
since the beginning of the war has
established tbetn as probably the
most ?atablo factor in Russia.
In addition to their activitie? in
commodity buying and selling, they
have built up a solid financial struc
ture. The Moscow Narodny Ban!??,
founded by them ln 1912. has been the
only ban!? off which the Bolsheviks
havo kept the!? hands. AVhen the
Bolshevik bank-nationalizing act was
passed, a force of Reds attempted to
take possession of the Moscow bank.
But the co-operative societies pro
tested that It was a bank of the peo
ple and conducted In their interest,
and could not lie tauen away from
them. As a result, the Moscow
! N'arodny Bank has not since heen In
1 teifcred with. Its turnover for the
I year WIT was more than "i.OOO.OfXiOOO
! ruble?.
The consumers' societies, which were
I among the earliest of the co-opera
I tives. date back to ISC'.. But they did
[not begin to be widespread until IDOO.
Since the start of the war in 191? they
have more than doubled in number.
The first consumers' society to be or.
I g-anized among industrial workers
| was founded in IS70. at the Kynov
Works, far up in the Ural Mountains.
The experiment has since been suc

WILSON HALTS !
PEACE FEELER
President Expected to An
swer Von Hertling at New
York Friday Night.
Germany's latest pea-^e ferle w ?
be squelched by President Wilson
when he opens the Fourth Liberty
Loan campaign In N'ew Tork tomor
row night.
The text of the speech mede by
Count von Hertling. the imperial
German chancellor, before the main
committee of tbe Reichstag, was
recei\ed yesterday afternoon by th?
State Department.
While no comment was forthcom
ing from the State Depcrtment. ap
parently in view of the fact that
the entire ?ubject will be handled
by tbe Tr?pident, there woe little
attempt to conceal the disgust fett
at the chancellor's whine for peace.
There is no doubt now, in the
minds of persons at the Capital,
that Germany and Austria are act
ing In concert on peace.
Weal* Stifle Pear.
One attempt has been to stifle It
by fear; another has been to draw
the allies into a conference. Per
haps the foremost feature of the
peace maneuvers, and one which is
particularly pleasing to officials
he re. is the apparently In spi red
campaign against President Wilson
?nnd the American people in the
German pre.??, which has told about
the "war fury raging here." Thia
point waa alao touched upon In the
chancellor's speech. The err my
press his likewise been typifying
the United States of late as the
"mort bloodthirsty" of opponents.
The German chancellor, in addition
to the four principle? outlined by
I resident Wilson, comments on the
fourteen clauses which th? President
has laid d"wn as a basta of peace.
fend declares his willingness to accept
these.
Discusi?n Timms l??-?ulbl*.
These fourteen principles show th?
utter Impossibility of a peace discus
sion at the present time One of them
provides for "the evacuation of Rua
r?an territory and the abandonment
nf economic control therein." Th?
German government haa sine? en
tered info the Rrest-LUovsk treaty.
Another nf the fourteen principles
pro videa for "an independent Polish
?'.Ate." whereas Poland is mv M?V
G?..-:ian domination and both Ger
mana and Austrians are barrering
ove?- the spoils there.
V\m HcrtltnfTs -peace feeler wilt be
ivlcfaiCf. to oblivion the sam? as tho
? um nan note, it la believe | here, be
cause tite President hxs already
.<hov.n b? will have nolhi.t?,? ?? di
with fri since re proposals, and lbs Ger
man ?*h.incr*Hor's speech is deemed
insincer?' throughout.
