GERMANS IN EFFORT TO WIN OVER SWISS NEW YORK, Oct 13 According- to the Rev. Dr. Newell -Dwlsht HUM pastor of Plymouth Church. Brook lyn, who arrived at an At'anllc port in board a British steamship from England, Switzerland Is a hotbed of German propaganda, and scents of the Kaiser are workins overtime to Influenza trade after the war. "I spent ten days In Switzerland apd found conditions there such that I might be tempted to call them ludi crous If they were not connected with the present tenlble war," said Dr. Illllls. "Among the prominent Ger man agents who are hard at work in Switzerland I found a on of Von Bethmann-Hollwes. and Thlilp Schel demann. the German Socialist leader. I believe also there was a nephew of Bismarck doing what he could to pre sent Germany's ride and to capture trade after the war." Dr. Hillls said Germans had bought up 62 per cent of the power compa nies of Switzerland, but that the fed eral government had presented a bill which, if passed, will provide tor the condemnation and confiscation of all the land and other property taken by the Germans. Headquarters of the propagandists are at a. hotel in Berne. One-half of the dining room la reserved for per sona of allied sympathies, the other half for Germans. Until the begin ning of the allied offensive and the reverses of the German arms. Dr. Hillls said. It was common to hear Germans toast loudly the success of the German armies. Since the clean inc out of the Chateau-Thierry salient by Americans, the allied guests have been doing the toasting while the Germans have remained quiet. The buying up of the water-power properties. Dr. Hillls said, was in connection with the German scheme to construct a canal from the Rhine into Switzerland at an estimated cost of 20.000,000 marks. Seizure of the property by the Swiss government will be made under the right of emi nent domain. Recently. Dr. Hillls said, Germans bought La Suisse, a Swiss newspaper, paying 2.000,000 marks for It and beating tha allies to the purchase by less than an hour. "I have seen cities built by Ameri cans in France. said Dr. HUH. "From one port a railroad 2S0 miles long, complete and standard In every particular, has been constructed, with towns and cities on its line. I have seen eight solid miles of new ware houses built by Americans. Work of Americans has beer wonderful. Then are enough rations there to feed 2,000,000 troops for forty-five days, which means much when you consider that they are handing out 1,475,000 rations dally. At one place th Americans have a hospital with 84S ucrea of land, on which are 260 build ings, which can take good care of 15,000 convalescents and 10,000 wound ed at one time. AMERICANS' SPIRIT "LONDON, Oct. 13. Entertaining a party of American editors at lunch eon at the Times offices. Lonl Northcliffe. toasting the American visitors, said: "In America rast year we won dered at ta strange phenomenon of the rising young men of that na- Mn. many resident a thousand miles from the sea, being drawn by some mysterious instinct to leave their prosperous careers to come across the Atlantic Their crusade was one of the great miracles of the world "Public opinion had become unani mous in America, not because they had anything to get out of the war. but because of the overwhelming In stinct to rise to the cause of jus tice." "We never use the word foreigner" in regard to Americans in this coun try," Lord Northcliffe added. "We regard you as ourselves." Dr. Edward J. Wheeler, of New fork, replied to the toast, apd F. P. ;)ass. of Birmingham. Ala- a mem ber of a second party of editors, de scribing his voyage across the At lantic said: The faar among the 1,800 Ameri can troops aboard our ship was that the war might be finished before they arrived in France."

Tou lose all signs of fear when you're dealing with their kind. Tou are so mad at J seeing your friends go that you de light in it." This is an excerpt from a letter written Dy Lieutenant Edward J. Sul livan, of the Twenty-sixth, the "Yan kee" Division, to his sister, Mrs. Mary A. Sullivan, police matron, who is doing detective duty under Mrs. Ellen A. O'Grady, Fifth deputy police com missioner. Lieutenant Sullivan was a policeman In the city before enlist ing in the army. "I'll never forget the last night we went over the top," the lieutenant continues, referring to a recent bat tle "As we stood waiting for the rocket, which was the signal, with bayonets fixed and ready, I looked around at them and my platoon had their eyes fixed on me, as I was to lead them. Some were smiling, a lot were blessing themselves and others were praying. Tou could see their lips move, though you couldn't hear anything, the artillery roaring all around us. As we went over they for got everything and became men. They were so anxious to get into it that I had difficulty In keeping them from running Into our own barrage. "Not one flinched, though shrapnel was bursting ail around us. They sure were heroes. We lost some; others went to hospitals and now are coming back again. Our boys are wonderful. How they got through it. I don't know, but they battled their way right up to the enemy machine guns. Wenld Throw Dp nands. "When the dirty Hun rats would throw up Iheir hands with that kam erad' stuff they never got away with It. But it sure was hell while it lasted, and little did I think that when I used to sit back In the Strand or RIalto and see the French and Eng lish go over the top that I would ever be doing the same thing. "The boys don't want sweaters, socks or mittens. They want news from home, papers, books, something that's got American printing on 1L Those In the rear get a lot of It, but It never reaches the men up where we are. If you could see how--ook or paper is passed from one to tire other, probably two or three months old, yoa'd nearly cry. If you people over there knew what mall meant to the boys here you'd cut out knitting socks that never reach us and write a few s letters." Mrs. Sullivan said that since she re ceived the letter from her brother, the War Department had Informed her that be had been woun9ed by shrapnel. NO CELL TO FIT 6MB. PRISONER NEW TORK; Oct 13. Notice to Reader The figures herein under to be given as to the weight of C Emory Titman, Jr a, prisoner in the jail at Whits Plains, are not misprints. Mr. Titman weighs 610 (six hun dred and ten six-one oh) pounds and Is Just e trifle over six feet tall Confidential to Reader If it were not for his size, C. E. T-. Jr.. couldn't crash his way into the columns of this newspaper with a fire ax. Ac cused of a $100 fraud? Blooie! In these days of billions that la nothing and scarcely that But we thought, on account of this bird's amplitude, that he might be Interesting. It seems that Titman (or so runs the allegation) Is a son of a wealthy, and deceased Phlladelphlan. and Is considerable of a horse rare bettor. It Is charged that he borrowed $100 from George Murphy, a Freeport actor, and gave him a check which was returned as one of thos useless, non-eetential things. Therefore, be was arrested In Philadelphia. He put up a battle before Governor Brum baugh, of Pennsylvania, against being extradited to New York, charging that the money Involved was for a gambling debt But he was brought here yesterdsy, anyhow. Deputy Sheriff Crawford, of West chester, who made the arrest, had to engage a special compartment to bring Titman from the Quaker City. Then when he reached Nw York he couldn't be handled In a taxlcab. but a touring car had to be engaged. And Titman's bulk alone spread Itself across the width of the back seat, while the deputy rode In front with the chauffeur. Then, when arraigned before County Judge Frank L. Young, Tit man had to stand, because there was no chair which might accommodate him properly. Finally, when he was sent to Jail, thero was no cell to fit him. and he was placed In the hos pital section of the Institution He said last night h was going to have a New York surety company go on his ball bond and would have a lawyer defend him.
