New Jersey News in Tabloid Form - TO HEAR PLEA FOE SOLDIERS Parley Will Be Held on Jersey-Camp Dix Fare For Draftee·. Trenton, Nov. 3.—The Pennsylvania Railroad Company having signified its unwillingness to put into effect a re duced rate schedule for soldiers travel ing between their homes and Camp Dix, the public utility commission has given notice that it will consider the question at an informal conference to be held next Wednesday.

In these it was shown that the round trip fare to Camp Dix from Jersey City is $3.92, while jitney hire brings the transporta tion cost of a trip home up to $4.50 or $5 for soldiers living in Hudsn county and an even larger sum for those in more northerly parts of the state. Inspector Maybury of the board took up the matter with David N.

Nov. 3.—Tnree officers and a number of sailors of the German nayy were killed in "another" mutiny at Kiel early in September, according to a dispatch from Amsterdam to the Daily Express, which claims to have authentic details. The outbreak oc curred aboard the battleships Kron prlnz and Schleswig-Holstein, and started when the men revolted against being drafted into the sub marine service. The sailors on the Kronprinz threw Admiral Schmidt overboard and stab bed and threw overboard Lieutenant Raul, the admiral's aide, ajid another officer. A battlo on the ship's deck between the officers and sailors fol lowed. Three officers and a number of sailors were killed. Similar scenee occurred on the Schleswig-Holstein. Admiral Schmidt was rescued, but It was necessary for him to leave Kiel. All the surviving mutineers were ar rested. The battleship Kronprlnz displaces 25,293 tons, and was built in 19X5. Her complement Is 1,160 men. The Schleswig-Holstein was completed in 1906, and measures 13,000 tons. She carriee 729 men. Vice-Admiral von Capelle, German minister of marine, announced in the Reichstag on October 9 the discovery of a plot in the German navy. Die patches from Amsterdam and London reported that the crewe of four bat tleships of the German fleet had taken part in a mutinous outbreak at Wil helmshaven. Three of the ringleaders were shot, while heavy sentences were imposed on the others. This outbreak was said to have occurred about six weeks earlier or about the first of September. Admiral von Capelle ac cused three Radical Socialist deputies of taking part In the plot, but the Qer man government has not taken any action against the members of the Reichsta*. Health of Prisoner·. Those who study prisons and try to find out why men get there will be In terested in this news from New York city. Out of 1,600 men of military age registered on June 5 In pennl lnstlt'i tlons of that city less than 5 per cent were physically fit for service. In Blackwell's Island prison not one was fit for the nrmy. Every one was a physical discard. A great many per , sons who have studied such things I much will say that perhaps the physi cal condition of these young men may be the chief reason for their presence In prison. And most of us feel qnlte sure that fine, healthy bodies and nor mal minds are most likely to keep their owners out of prison. It Is with some satisfaction that we reflect upon the fact that this war will do a great deal to make human bodies stronger and healthier—and to that extent make prison* useless.—Illinois Stat· Jour nal. ^ A POPULAR CANDI DATE FOR OFFICE OF CORONER William Jon.

BERLIN ADMITS DEFEAT ON THE AISNE SECTOR Berlin, Nov. 3.—The Germans have retreated from points along the Chemin- Des Dames in the Aisne sec tor of the front in France, according to the German official communication issued last evening. The communication gives no rea son for the maneuvre, but eays that it was made systematically and without interference by the Frencti troops. The bulletin reads: "Unnoticed and undisturbed by the enemy, we systematically withdrew our lines from the hilly front of the Chemin-Dee-Dames." the day report said: "Front of the German crown prince: On the Oise-Aisne canal and along the ridge of the Chemn-Des-Dames there was a considerable Increase in the fighting activity. "After several hours of drumfire strong French forces attacked near Braye. Their assault collapsed san guinarily before our line." The French Statement. Paris, Nov. 3.—The artillery battle was still in progress on the Alsne front, according to the day report of the War office. The bulletin reads: "North of the Aisne tnere was inter mittent artillery fighting. We dis persed enemy detachment which at tempted to approach our lines la he region of Ghevreux. "Enemy attacks on our email posts at the Main de Massiges, near Tahure, and north of St. Mihiel were without success. Patrol encounters on the left bank of the Meuse enabled us to take prisoners." No Suspense in Washington. Washington, Nov. 3.—The voluntary withdrawal of German forces from lines along the hilly front of the Chemln-Des-Dames is expected here to result in important gains by General Petain. It Is thought to be probably a prelude to the fall of Laon and L>a Fere and tends to confirm the forecast of on ultimate retirement of the Ger man forces in the west to the Une of the Meuse. French military experts in Wash ington were gratified when 'nformed of the brief but significant announce ment from Berlin, for they looked upon It as a natural corollary to the Important gains made by the French forces in the last ten days, by which they have advanced their Aisne sector lines close to Anizy le Chateau, south west of Laon. The Chemin Des-Damee Is a road over the ridge that dominates the val ley of the Aisne and the Allette valley, and its importance was taken advan tage of by Napoleon in 1814, in opera· tlons that led to the battle of Craonne. When news of the German retire ment from this ridge was first re ceived, there was a disposition to re gard it as possibly the result of the withdrawal of German forces for use la the Austro-German invasion of the Plains of Venetia. But this is not the interpretation placed on the movement by French military experts here, who feel that the German retirement Is the result of the recent successful of fensive In that region.
