M : Close n K. M. A EAST SHPPNG Eastern manufacturers apparently have won their ficht for lower freights on traffic destined for thei Par East and Australia. The Rail road Administration today announced it soon would put into effect reduced I rates on shipments consigned fromi points east of the Missouri river to Japan. China, Australia and the Phil ippine Islands. V Officials here regarded the rate re ductions as tremendously important in building' up foreign trade, which dust be routed through Pacific coast seaports. Appeals from Industrial leaders for lower, rates have been based on the fact that unless they were given aid through reduced transportation charges, lhsy could not compete with European manufac turers. Secretary Redfield has taken a decided stand favoring the move. It was pointed out in communica tions to the Department of Commerce that a large mapority of the articles sold in the Far East, are manufac tured In the eastern half of the United States. Through ocean rates from Atlantic ports are regarded as prohibitive so far as competing with Europe is concerned. B B B CHE E WAR FU el WA DESTRUCTVE a a a (! NEW YORK. March 25. That Capt. Edwin C Welsgerber, fuel expert, "Went to Washington on July 15, 1918, and turned over to the British War Mission there a fuel mixture which proved to be picric acid, water and gasolene was declared by witnesses before a court-martial here. Welsger ber is charged with acts detrimental to the United States and Great Brit aln. His fuel was turned over by the British mission, it was said, to .ne United States Chemical Warfare Ser vice for analysis. It developed, 'tj was charged, that the solution would "ultimately destroy any internal com bustion engine or motor." A memorandum was offered show ing that the fuel expert and his as sociate, J. K. Burnett, of Pittsburgh, had claimed the fuel could be made at a cost of 7 cents a gallon where either salt or fresh water was available. H i E PREDICTS LOWER FOOD P E DON B Lower food prices "in the relatively near future were predicted by," Geprge X. Peet, chairman of the In- I fg dustrial Board, now driving to bring . E down war prices in all commodities. After a conference with Food Ad ministration officials Peet made this statement: "There is every reason to expect lower food prices in the relatively ! near ruture. This view, I believe, the men in charge of the affairs of the Pood Administration will share." PLAN THREE MEMORIALS FOR LATE COL ROOSEVELT i NEW YORK. March 25.
