He will leave on the Alaska for Southern California, and there he feels confi dent that health and strength wait him. Friends of Mr. Ellis subscribed a fund for getting him Outside, but it was not sufficient. Then somebody suggested that Judge Bunnell might be willing to turn over some of the government fund to his assistance. Accordingly, Clyde Gcraghty took up the matter with some of the leading business men of Fairbanks, and they sent a telegram to Judge Bunnell, asking for assistance for theu nfortu nato man.

The London correspondent of the Now York Tribune writoB that British 1 naval experts call tho German subma rine blockade a fniluro. They admit that a certain numbor of ships are ' destroyed regularly, but tho percent- : age, they say, la not likely to increase because of precautions taken for do ing away with the onemy submarines, ' ranging from arming Merchantmen 1 to snaring submarines with nets of 1 steel wire. An increasing number of 1 ships, when attacked, run for it, as did the Armenian and Orduna. It is estimated Germany has now 50 sub marines, having lost at least 20 and possibly 29. She is building one a week now, but it Is believed she Is 1 using only 40 on tho British blockade, und these are compelled to spond one third of their time at the base resting the crews and taking on supplies. A Paris special says the renewal of . the Balkan League and its entry into the war on the side of the Allies 1b believed to be in sight, owing to ef forts of the ministers of Russia, Great Britain. France and Italy. This time, it is expected, the league will include Rou mania, which remained aloof from former agreement and In considera tion of her threatened intervention in the second Balkan war acquired from Bulgaria an additional area of more thran 2,000 Bquare miles of territory. Collective representations were made last Thursday to tho Serbian prem ier. An official Serbian communica tion issued at Nlsh says that repre sentations of the ministers of the Al lies were most frlnodly and were put forward In "tho hope of avoiding fric tion between the Balkan states and in establishing an entente between them, thus bringing nearer the final success of the Allies in the war." A copy of an open letter addressed to tho leaders of the German social democratic party, signed by 700 offic ials of the party and of socialist trade unions in Germany has reached New York. The leaders are condemnod for acquisence In the German govern ment's war policy, for their failure to protest against the invasion of Bel gium and the sinking of tho Lusitanla and are summoned to break at onco the party truce and begin an active campaign for peace, and of uncom promising, opposition to the annexa tion plans of the German govern ment. A Berlin cablo says: Field artil lery went into action down Unlter den Linden on Friday, and after evo lutions before the palace the guns were unlimbered, and with their muz zles pointing towards Russia, they fired 101 shots In celebration of the fall of Warsaw. This was the first time such a thing has been done since the war began and tho roar of can non in the heart of Berlin attracted a huge throng. Financial experts figure the war de preciation has cost tho holders of se curities throughout the world $20,000, 000. Basod on this depreciation of 11 per cent., foreign securities held in France, having a total value of $8, 000,000,000 on December 3, 1913, and domestic securities having a valuo of about $14,000,000,000, have depreciat ed $2,000,000,000. Neymarck esti mates the total valuo of tho world's securities was $170,000,000,000. The Germany calling up of untrain Landstrum, between tho ages of 42 and 45, in various towns generally Is meeting with vigorous opposition on the part of manufacturers, who have 1 held several conferences with mili tary authorities. Until now these classes have been called only from the rural districts. D. W. Jayno, manager of the Bar rett Manufacturing Company says that by the first of tho year the benzol output of American plants will be ful ly five times that produced before the war. Over $15,000,000 of Christmas toyB made in Germany, already shipped to ' the United States, have boon Inter cepted by the British navy and are now held up in various British ports. The British government appeals to public employers to pay salaries in nltes instead of coin in order to com mence strengthening the gold reserve.
