Further improvement in the facilities for the removal of American refugees from English ports was reported to the government board of relief, but the board still faces the problem of find ing ships for the thousands of tour ists who are unable to leave Ger many, Austria, Switzerland and those gathered In Italian ports. The ac ceptance of the German government's offer to place at the disposal of the United States several liners that would fly the American flag was de ferred again pending the result of exchanges with other governments over the recognition of the neutrality of these relief ships. Administration officials are confident, however, that governments at war will consent promptly to a. proposal that the German government's offer will solve the problem. Ambassador Page at London re ported that all the steamship lines had been ordered to resume service with their full complement of ves sels.

The fiist light in the senate on tiie Clayton anti-trust bill began in earnest, over the question of giving private part ies bringing damage suits against a. trust the benefit of decrees won by the government in a successful dis solution suit against the same com bine. Consideration of the bill has been simplified by striking out the sec tions forbidding price discrimination and exclusive contracts. This was done by Senator Culberson at the direction of the judiciary committee, so that these subjects might be dealt with exclusively in the trade commission bill now in conference. Senator Walsh of Montana led the debate in favor before making a de cree won by the government in a dissolution suit conclusive as to all facts and law in issue in private, suits for damages. The house bill contained such a provision but the senate judiciary committee, doubting its constitutionality, changed it so as to allow the trust to introduce additional evidence and have points of law reconsidered. Senator Chilton argued that in the endeavor "to put teeth" into the leg islation there was danger of depriv ing persons of their right to be heard and Borah suggested that the principle of equal protection of law to all would be violated. The bill was laid aside before the final vote was taken but in perfect ing the committee's amendment the senate voted to make "prima facie" evidence given in dissolution decrees apply to decrees hitherto entered. This was done by a vote of 24 to 2:i, Vice President Marshall breaking the tie. MOVEMENT IN GRAIN Tassociated press dispatch BOSTON, Aug. 17.

President Wilson Non-committal Regarding the Ul timatum to (lennany, ITn- j willing to Appear to He Taking Sides IT'S -COMMON (1KRMANY BELIEF REFUSES It is Pointed Out That Our interests in the Asiatic Waters Are Tied Up With the Possessions of Oerman v associated peess dispatch WASHINGTON', Aug. 17. Japan's sudden entry into tile European war situation as a factor that might quickly increase the range of the great conflict to the Far East has commanded wide attention among administration officials and diplo mats. The attitude of the United States, it became clear, will be one of non-interference in the contro versy between Japan and Germany. This was reflected in the studied re ticence of both the president and Mr. Bryan. The president has been asked whether the assurance of Ja pan that she would eventually re store Kiau Chau to China in case that teiritoy is obtained from Ger many, was deemed satisfactory. Mr. Wilson replied he saw no reason to question Japan's good faith in that connection but he carefully refrained from expressing any opinion on the merits of the ultimatum of Japan's attitude. Published reports to the effect that the president was satisfied with Ja pan's course were promptly denied by Secretary Tumulty at the direc tion of the president. "The president feels it incumbent on him," said Tumulty, "as head of a neutral na tion to express no opinions whatever on the attitude of Japan or any oth er country." Diplomatic dispatches brought no further information as to the future course of either Japan or Germany but officials at Washington were di verted for the moment from a thought of hostilities in Europe to a hypothentical consideration as to how American possessions in the far east ultimately might be affected by the results of an extension of the war to the Oiient. Army strategists discussed among themselves whether Japan might not also take the German possession in the Samoan and Carolina Islands which are on the American line of communication to the Philippines and how that eventually might affect the interests of the American government in the Pacific. It was pointed out in Japanese circles that the ultimatum to Ger many applies specifically to the Ger man occupation of territory on the Asiatic mainland, nothing being said about German insular possessions in Australasia. However, it is explain ed that in the event of Germany's refusal to meet Japanese demands ar.d of Japanese success in the war, (Continued on Page Three) w ith lists of food purchases' during the last week in July, with the cost and names and addresses of dealers.

"No compro mise," was the slogan with whiou Col Roosevelt nnened the Massa chusetts political campaign. He as serted that there should be no com nromise with reflet ionaries in anV form, while on the other hand, the party would welcome those or tne rank and file of other organizations who refused to follow the old lead ers.

Roosevelt's speech was to have been delivered at a progressive rally, and field meet at Fenway park, hut rain drove the crowd to shelter in the arena. Speaking of what he termed the permanent problem of Massachusetts. Colonel Roosevelt said: "This prob lem must be, so far as it concerns great industries in which an immense majority of wage workers are en gaged, the combining of efficiency with a proper sharing of the re wards of that efficiency. There will be no rewards for anybody, no ade quate wage for the workingman. no proper service to be pumic, unless me business pays. "Business run at a loss will have to close its doors. No prosperity can be passed around until prosperity exists. The main element in the success of any business must be ef ficiency and the wage worker must do all in his power to contribute to this efficiency. But the wage worker who by his efficiency adds to pro ductivity must have that adaeu ei finienev recognized in increased wages. The benefit must in part ac crue to him exactly as it in part accrues to the man who furnished, the capital, without which business could not go on and in part to tho general public. "So in every business it must be recognized that there are thdse three interests: each one of those inter ests must received justice. Public opinion must recognize this tact; tne government, which in this country is based on public opinion, must also recognize it and endeavor to secure, its practical realization." 0 : HY.
