OTHERS EMPLOYED ON FARMS. Contracts Provide For Double Oriental Wages and Return of Bodies of Dead- Exportation Has Been Going on For More Than Year—Only Biggest Men Taken. Chicago.—The pick of Chinese skilled and partly skilled laborers is being sent from Tientsin, China, to France at the rate of more thau 1,000 a week, and from Indo-Chiua to France in at least equal numbers, mainly to work in French munition factories, according to a representative of one of the largest British manufacturing and trading con cerns in China, now on a visit to this country. "They are carried over to France at the rate of between 2,(XX) and 3,000 a ship," he said. "It does not take a large slilp to carry 2,000 Chinese, for they go practically as freight. A Chi nese can flourish in a space that would hardly do a white man for his grave. "Only the best selected stock is go ing to France from Tientsin. A large Photo by Aitiertcan Press Association. CHINESE WOBKEBS AT HAVBE, FRANCE. percentage of the men are six feet tall. For the most part they are Chinese who have learned something about ma chinery in British mills and factories or in construction camps. Some are agricultural laborers, taken to France to Increase food production. "The exportation of Chinese to France has been going on at Tientsin for considerably more than a year, and the number of Chinese now in France, Including those from French China, is probably more than 100,000. "Before they can be induced to leave China these Chinamen all insist on a contract providing not only for their wages, which are small enough, but binding the French government to ship their bodies back to China for burial if they die In France. It also provides In detail for the apparatus of a Chinese burial. Every Chinese who dies must have a new set of clothing for his ap pearance in the future world and for the food which goes for the spirit of a Chinese of his class, from rice to roast goose and pig. He must be assured that other funeral ceremonies will be faithfully observed, such as the burn ing of a string of tinfoil Imitations of Chinese money, the burning of a pa per house, a paper chair or carriage. "In our factories in China we pay Chinese worklngmen who have some mechanical knowledge 12VJ cents a day, American money. The contract which Induces them to go to France provides for wages of 20 or 25 cents a day, and that Is enough to recruit the Chinese as fast as ships can be found to carry them out" HE MADE GOOD.

The recent speech by the German foreign minister, Herr Zimmerman, in which he endeavored to blame the United States for the break with Germany and to put all responsibility upon the United States for war be tween the two countries, brought forth a hot, though informal, retort .from the national administration. In making its reply the govern ment, through the state department, also made public for the first time some secret information which casta a new light on the developments that led President Wilson to sever diplo matic relations with Germany. In the highest official circles the Zimmerman address was hailed aa the closest indication yet given that Germany may declare war against the United States. One official, hold ing a most responsible portfolio, frankly admitted the Zimmerman speech might be construed to mean that Germany already considers her self at war with us and Is carrying out her submarine warfare on that theory. At the moment the state depart ment was defining its position dis patches were coming in telling of the destruction by German subma rines of the lives of more Americans in the war zone. History of Break. Here is the history of the break with Germany, as given for the first time: The United States knew two weeks before Germany promulgated her decree of unrestricted submarine warfare that Germany was about to take such action. Count von Bernstoff, then Ger man ambassador here, also knew of it. He likewise was informed of the attitude of the United States. He knew that diplomatic relations would be broken off If his government la sued such a decree. The German ambassador made nu merous visits to the state depart ment to assure this government that he was exerting every effort and bringing to bear every word of ad vice against the plan of his govern ment. He told Berlin flatly that to Issue the contemplated decree would mean a break with America. State department officials expressed this week their belief in the earnestness of Von Bernstoff's effort to prevent Germany from declaring a war zone. Then on January 31, the decree was given to the world by Berlin. Herr Zimmerman, speaking before the relchstag, Is quoted as saying that the United States broke off re lations with "extraordinary rough ness" and that Ambassador Von Bernstorff was given no time to "elucidate orally the German atti tude." Germany Given Time. | Instead, it was stated on the high est authority, the United States held back Its hand for three days in order to give Germany—through the ambassador or otherwise—time to give full expression to Its views and to propose any modifications she might desire to make as regards American shipping In the war zone. Germany was silent. She showed no evidence of desiring further dis cussion. Thereupon President Wil son went before congress and an nounced that Ambassador Von Bern storff had been handed his pass ports. The same high official who gave this exposition of the diplomatic course of the United States declared that were the Zlmmermann speech officially before this government— or quoted—that It might well serve as proof that Germany considered herself at war with the United States and that no further declara tion is necessary. Herr Zimmermann's address is re garded aB merely another of the nu merous German efforts to prove that country imposed upon and abused, a method much in favor with German statesmen ever since the war began. Officials consider the speech not in tended as much for American and neutral eyes as for home consump tion. Schools Join In Buying Supplies. NORTH YAKIMA, April 6.—Fif teen out of 22 school districts repre sented in a county meeting of school directors have voted to adopt co operative buying of school supplies. Requisitions covering supplies for a year will be sent to a joint purchas ing committee, which will invite bids from dealers on the aggregate amount desired. All the school dis tricts in the county except North Takima are expected to Join the plan, which is the first movement of the kind in the state. Revival services are being con ducted at the Christian church this week by Rer. Harry Bell.
