Under "the master spy," Dr. Hugo Schweitzer, German agents in this country re ported to Berlin by code every detail of America's business life, kept from the allies 4,500,000 pounds of explo sives and sent overseas the formula for the deadly mustard gas, which laid low thousands of American sol diers, according' to Francis P.

As a result, he said, he was also able to reveal the far-reaching machinations of Dr. Schweitzer, former president of the Bayer Company, which was taken over and reorganized by the alien property custodian. Tabs Ob American Business. "True it is that the Hamburg American line and the North-German Lloyd kept faithful tab for Berlin on a thousand details of our business life which came under their observation, that not a ship left our harbors, not a cargo was loaded or unloaded, but that some member of Its organization watched and reported every detail, to be sent by code to the German gov ernment." said Mr. Garvan. "But greater than all, and rormlns the foundation of her entire espion age and propaganda system, stood the dye Industry. Aa long as you were supplied by the 'big six.' your business had no secret unknown to Berlin. In Berlin you will find a card Index system which recites every fact connected with each and every one of your concerns that can be of any possible value to your rivals over there.

Talk of re ceivership for the Chicago surface car system and of strikes of em ployes if an attempt to reduce wages is made followed in the wake today of the refusal of the Illinois public utilities commission to grant the application of the street car com pany for permission to increase fares from 5 to 7 cents. Officials of the company declare that the present 5-cent fare does not produce sufficient revenue to cover operating expenses and say that, without increased revenue, it will be impossible to maintain the war-time wage scale now in effect. Employes assert that any attempt to reduce present wages will result in a strike. The utilities commission declared that it is possible for the company to "make both ends meet" with the 5-cent fare and refused to "burden the public" with the $3,000,000 per year it is estimated the Increased fare would have produced. r . ,i i i BELASCO THEATER . y TOXJAYr-3:30 P.
