"These oil fields, situated in the northern foothills of the Carpathians, within southern Gal icia any lying some distance below and to the east of the Austrian fort-1 ress. Prezemysl. produce about fiv per cent, of the world's total annual output of petroleum, coming thus fourth on the list of the most im portant sources of this fuel. The United States leads all countries by a mngnificeat margin in the production of oil, turning out 24,500,000 metric tons, out of the world's total petrol eum production in normal times of 46(500,000 metric tons. The United States, therefore, has to its credit nearly 61 per cent, of the total output. This country Is followed by Russia. Mexico and then GallcUi "While among the earliest fields to attract, attention in the petroleum Industry, coming Into prominence as early as t878. the Galiclan oil fields! are only partially known and develop-. ed. These fields aro beyond compur ison the richest oil fields in opera- j tion in Europe, and there are Indica tions that the future will sot an in crease rather than a decrease in their j working area and in their productiv ity. The modern petroleum industry had its beginning in the United States, starting to all* practical pur-; poses about 1859. Tbo drilling of the Galiclan oil wells soon followed those of this country. Almost coincident with the birth of the Galiclan oil in dustry was that of the Russian oil industry at Baku. The enormously rich Russian wells, yielding about 20 per cent, of the world's total output, were opened about 1875. "Bohobyez and Boryalaw are cen ters of the Galician oil Industry. The high! plain, southward -to the Car pathian hills, from DohoboyeK to Boryslaw is the petroleum region. This district lies southeastward from the sources of the river San, in the higher Carpathians, and south south west of Lemborg. The annual pro duction of the Galiclan wells has been around 2,000.000 metric tons, and the number of wells has been slowly but steadily increasing. The grdwth of this industry has, as in other places where petroleum resources have been developed, added largely to the pros perity of Galicia. a .land that some few generations ago' was one of the most miserably poor to be found in Enrope. < Uncovered Resources "The Dutch East Indies and neigh boring Roumnnia have uncovered oil resources sufficient to make a very strong competition with Galicia for prominence in the Industry during the last few years. Roumanla is sixth upon the list of petroleum producing centers, and "may have furnished Im mense stores of this precious fuel to the G?rmanic^allies during the occu pancy of the Galician oil region by the Russian Invaders. The course.of the Austrian oil lands Is toward Bu kowlna and Roumanla. in the line of the Carpathian foothills. "These Galician wells are of spec ial war importance to thoLj German powers as being, not only the most important source of their petrlcum supply, but their only internal* source of any consequence of this most nec essary Tuel. With these wells under their control, their stores of oil are large and certain; without them, the central powers are forced to turn to uncertain foreign sources. The enemy nation, Russia, on the east, is assured of an Inexhaustible supply of oil from its native wells at Baku, whose secur ity the Turks threatened up to now In vain. Great Britain is able to draw upon the wells of the neutral coun tries of the world, with every pros pect of safe delivery. Roumanla re mains practically, the sole foreign source of oil for Germany and Aus tria." - The Whirlpool of despair AT GRAND THEATRE/TONIGHT MISS YVONNE PASCAL Tonight we are featuring Mis* Yvonne Pascal, of the Bernhardt The atre of Paris, in "The Whirlpool of Despair."

Luebeck, situated beyond tlie dang ers of blockade on the broken south western shore of the narrow-mouthed Baltic sea. has become, due to the ad vantages of Its position since the out break of the European war, the fore most port of the German empire In foreign water-borne trade. The Na tional Geographic society describes this port, whose fortunes have risen and fallen through Its centuries of international business relations, as follows: "Luebeck is the smallest of the free cities of Germany, but richer In reminiscences of former greatness than either of the other two. Ham burg, Bremen and Luebeck Joined the modern German empire as free and independent Hanseailc cities. Ham burg and- Bremen have developed In to great stono-and-mortar hives of present-day business; have multiplied their wealth at a tremendous rate, and have, more and more, grown to the International type of purely busi ness cities. Luebeck. on the oiher hand, while it has maintained an im portance as a busy place of commerce, Is medieval, romantic, a breath from the past. Nerve Center of Trade. "Lying 10 miles from the Baltic sea. on the River Trave, the channel of which has been so improved that boats of Hi-foot draft are able to tie up at the city's docks. Luebeck has been a nerve center of north German trade with Denmark, the Scandinavi an lands and with Russia. The city has been made into an island by Its harbor improvements, the Trave flow Ing -around its western border and a wide canal around it no the east. The wharf districts are upln the north eastern and northwestern sides of the town. "This city enjoys a losatlon as fa forable as that of Bremen or Ham burg for the distribution of its wares over Germany. It is reached by rail in two and one-half hours from Bre men. and is about as conveniently near Berlin.

"Once a city of considerable r(^ nown throughout the truding world, the business of Luebeck dwindled! and the port cities more favorably sit uated upon the open ocean lanes of [commerco gradually absorbed much of the business that formerly hud ta ken its course through the. northern port The trade of the city began a founding of the German empire, and it lias remained* one of tho most Im portant commercial cities on the Bal tic . <! m Founded In 1143. "The city was founded by Count Adolph 1! of Holstoln In 1143, near the site of an earlier town. It .was de clared a free town of the empire in 1226, and, In 1227. made its appear ance as a military power, when, in union withr the Holsteincrs. its cit izen soldiery badly defeated the Danes at Bornhocved. freeing their northern commerce from the Danish yoke. The inspiration of this feat at arms led the rnpldly rising muni cipality to dcVclop a strong naval power, and the enterprise of its dip lomacy led ot the foundation of the Hanseatic league, an ulliance of the great commercial towns of north Germany, first as. a protection for their peaceful commerces, and, then, as a sort of commercial and trading trust. The towns that Joined Lue beck in founding the league were Roj tock. Wi8mar, Greifcwald, Starsland and Hamburg. This league, dis solved and re-established, becjpne all powerful about a century antka half later, embracing more thnn 80 rich "For a time Luebeck held an undis puted precedence over tho other mem bers of the league. During those i days of its prosperity it is said to have had a population about the same jas it has today, between 80,000 and 00,000. Luebeck, as head of the Han seatic league, held the supremacy of the Baltic, which supremacy its peo ple are endeavoring to win back to day under the stimulus which the war has given to their city's commerce." FRANCE HAS HER LIQUOR TROUBLES Two French generals. Humbert and RoqueB, have recently issued or ders prohibiting the transportation and sale of Intoxicating bevereges, within the districts occupied by their j forces, and the campaign in favor of, national prohibition, except in the j case of light wines, if. making much j headway. Temperance advocates find much j material for their campaign in thq de-1 | moralizatlon reported from conceutra- i j tion points where the troops find: the j time hangs heavier than ot the front. ; or at home.

Later he received a letter from Speaker Clark saying that the idea seemed practicable and merit orious. Mr. Cheek and William Britt urged the Juneau Democratic Club to -rec ommend the incorporation of a plank in the Democratic Territorial platform favoring such a scheme.
