The .bLa SiZT b 500 cases of ammunition, the official report of the vessel's cargo made public by Dudley Field Malone, collector of the port at the time, shows, according to a copyrighted story in the New York World. The cases of ammunition, the report stated, were car ried by specific permission under rulings of the depart ment of commerce in force since 1911. 1-tciinrt Mini,' ti MeVlno The Malone report, the newspa Ie says, was made to Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo. It was dated Juno 4, 3 915, and wag called for after tho German reply of May 28 to President Wilson's first Lusi tania note of May 13, had set us the contention the .Lusitania had been armed and that her rapid sinking was due, not to tho torpe do, but to the explosion of ammu nition. It was this report to which President Wilson, in , his second note of June it, referred, when he Maid: , "Fortunately, tlicre are mut ters concerning wtiich the gov I'l'iiinolit if 1 he l ulled Males ( is in a position to give the Im perial German government of ficial Information." Mr. Malono said lie had determ ined to give out the text of tho ro port becuuse of still insistent ap peals to him for information re garding its 'Contents. "These appeals'' he explained, "ars not only from the United States but from abroad; for in stance, from such- organizations as the Central Committee for Estab lishing the Causes of the War. "When senator La Follette's at titude toward tho war was under investigation, tho treasury depart ment was called on for tho original of this report. I replied that it had been turned over tn tho state department. The state department held that the report had become a state paper and therefore secret. "So it has never been possible for the public to 1now just what the report contained. For this rea son and because. oC the constant appeals to me for lnfonnatiijiv re garding it, I have decided to make it public." Xo Glims On Deck The report states that when the Lusitania sailed from -New York on May J, 1915, on her last trio to England she did not have any guns of any caliber or description on any deck, mounted or unmount ed, masked or unmasked. Affida vits by various government inspec tors were affixed to the report in substantiation. It stated further that the Lusi tania did not have Canadian troops' or troops off any nationality on hoard. Moreover, the Lusitania carrier! no group or groups, no body or organizations of passen gers as such, with or without uni forms: and if any Individual re servists of any nationality sailed o.i the Lusitania on this trip they did so as individuals, paying their own passage, and receiving their own Individual tickets.

Answering In turn each of the 14 specifications submitted bv the -Minnesota moniuer, Mr. Uaugher' iy expressed tns conviction that "this extraordinary proceeding is inspired more by a desira to pro tect those charged than those who will be charged with violating the laws than to aid the department of justice in prosecution ot grafters, profiteers and those who have de frauded their government during the emergency of war." The department of jus-tree stands ready, Mr. Daugherty said, to meet tho demand of Mr. Keller for ac cess to documents bearing upon specified cuses whenever it is ap parent that neither the govern ment's interest nor that of indi viduals who have imposed confi dences in the government would be violated. "Jn this behalf" a statement summarizing Mr. Daugheity's re ply continued "the attorney said that a more casual perusal of this demand not only indicates the mo tive but reflects the character of this entire proceeding; that It shows back ot this so-called bill of impeachment stand certain rad ical leaders seeking to servo notice upon every future uttornoy gen eral that if ha dares enforce the laws of tho United States against such' organizations ho does so un der, tho pain and penulty of be ing haled before the senato of the United States; acting ns high court of impeachment under the con stitution; that it shows that back of this so-called bill of impeach ment, directing, maintaining and encouraging Its prosecution, stand arrayed tho profiteers, the graft ers, the so-called war defrauders and all of those who seized upon the opportunity arising from the emergency arising frojn the war, to take advantage of their govern ment, that they, by unconsciona ble nnd unscrupulous means make known that those charged with bringing them to the bars of jus tice, have secured as the result of the most painstaking, faithful and earnest efforts which it has been possible for the attorney general of the United States and those as sociated with him to give to the solution of these most confusing and complexlng problems."

' neviuus munui CAR LOADINGS WERE NEAR HIGH RECORD a Better Rate Than Had Been Exectcd; .Conditions Satisfactory N'ew York, Dec, (by the As- sedated Tress). Indices of indus trial and trade activities continued satisfactory during the past week. If a tendency toward a slight slow ing down of production has been apparent this is regarded as a nat ural development at this season and is compensated for by the improve ment in retail trade, which comes with cold weather and the holidays. As a matter of fact, industrial activities are holding up remurk ably well. Car loadings for the week ended November 18, totaled 909, 00U cars, which is close to the high record for the year. Traffic Movement Large Taking everything into consider ation, it would appear that the fall movement of traffic has been the largest and best sustained in the country's history. Steel production also continued to maintain a better rate than had beta expected. Various author ities place output nt closo to eighty per cent of capacity. Pig iron prices are still showing a tendency to work lower in com pany with those of coal, and the prices of fin t hed steU products, which have been iciiiurkably steady for a numbfr of weeks, are bejng shaded slightly. No large reduc tions in steel prices are expected. One of the developments which caused satisfaction in financial circles was the position of a large proportion of the October railroad earning statements. The compari son with September is encourag ing. Fifty-four class A rood earn ed a net of $71,000,000 in October as compared with J4o,000,000 in the previous month. Possibly the u-tter raiiroau on 'f stock prices.'. in ' buy -event the i latter rallied vigorous), during the week, active short covering bein? In evidence over the entire list. Monetary conditions continue com fortable and there is little expecta- tion or any consiueraoio nisiur- bance in the money market during the rest of the year. Commodity Marketi The commodity morkeis have la)sed back inio a relatively stag nant condition. Wheat prices rallied after the reaction . f a week ago, strength being most marked in cases where the shipments had been light. Short demand and the tar situation are still considered the dominating fac tors in this commodity. -! PROFESSOR UNDERGOES HIS 13TH OPERATION FOR AN X-RAY MALADY Paris, iJec. !).

Will Make an Effort to Bring Permanent Peace to Cen tral and Western Europe; Plan Outlined Moscow, Dec. " (by the Associ ated Press.) Tho disarmament conference called in an cndeavoi to bring permanent peace to cen tral Knropo was formally opened yesterday, with the delegate.-, pres ent from the, western border states of Jtussla. eNcepting Kunnmia, which was represented by Poland. .Maxim Lilvinofl, the assistant commissioner of foreign affairs for soviet lLiis.-in, was chosen chair man of the conference, lie began the session by explaining the en deavors of the soviet government to tiring up at the recent C.enoa conference the question of disar mament. Having failed, tho soviet government was compelled by discouragement- to narrow down the program by bringing up the ipics tlon of disarmament merely before Its western neighbors, feeling a certain solution of this matter Will result in closer ties with itussin's neighbors, and have an effect in all Kurope. M. Litvinnff. in outlining the soviet government's declaration, said the actual reduction in stand ing armies was Insufficient in it self to bring about a full sidution of the problem of a mutual limita tion In armaments: therefore It was proposed to hold down mili tary budgets by fixing strictly a maximum figure of miliiaiy ex penditure, per soldier. His pro posal included simultaneous liqui dation ot the countries involved of their regular military forma tion composed of certain groups of tho civilian population. It em phasized tho importance of mutual ueutinalization of border .ones. "These proposals," said Litvin off. the Russian government holds to be concrete and feasible, ami cannot bo substituted by any tall; of so-called moral disarmament which is so often brought up at international conferences, the par ticipants jn which desire tinder a plausible pretext to avoid the ac tual realization of the popular de mand for disarmament. Continu ing, Litvinnff said tile Russian government greatly regretted to be unable at present to offer propo sals regarding naval forces. . be cause after the reduction of the naval foi cos in 1917 to one-fourth it "considers it necessary to main tain a navy us n means of defense against possible attacks by more powerful countries."
