Moire For Christmas II Trading To Be Done VOLUME FORTY-ONE Allies Do Nbt Agree With Germany That Campaign i- PA?s-S'£ W' London, Nov. 29.—The British public Is not inclined to grant the German contention that the Serbian campaign or the central powers haa been brought to & standstill. The hope Is expressed that the winter weather will give time for re-enforcing the Anglo-French troops until they are strong enough to assume ihe offensive before the in vaders have consolidated their posi tions In Serbia. Russia also Is counted on to play a part in these operations. In tne meantime the only active opera tions seem to be centering around Monastlr, the fate of which is obscure. The many contradictory reports on this subject vary, from the assertions that the city is still in the hands of the Serbians to the claim that the Bul garians, accompanied by detachments of Austrian* and Germans have occu pied the city. Barb Armies Retreating. Farther to the north it is reported the Serbian armies divided into two sections, are retreating to Albania and Montenegro. It is not yet apparent whether the Austro-German forces are to be sent agalnat^the Anglo-French lines north of Saloniki. but at the other extreme of the Balkan front the Montenegren* are expecting a heavy attack from the Atwtrians.

Time Ripe For Peace Propoaala. Belief that the time has arrived for the allies to begin to define clear and definite terms of peace is expressed by the Post in an editorial on the ground that there then will be less chance of losing in negotiations what has been gained on the sea and on the field. The Post contends that without sell ing the skin before killing the bear, it may be assumed victory for the allies lsassured. if only because, without un title strain. Great Britain could main tain a naval blockade Indefinitely, and history has shown that such pressure can Insure victory in the end. The newspaper protests against the treaty of coijameree whfth has been negotiated between Great Britain and Denmark, permitting commodities to be exported between the two countries to neutral countries.

GOVERNMENT TAKE3 CONTROL. Amount of Wheat 8eized Estimated at 20^000,000 Bushels. Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 29.—The Cana dian government has' commandeered all high grade wheat in eleivators from Fort William on Lake Superior to the Atlantic coast. The action was taken under the special war act by the Canadian grain commission. The wheat seized was of grades 1 hard and 1, 2, and 3 north ern. It was the property of grain shippers and millers. That taken is all which on Saturday night was in public elevators at Fort William, Port Arthur, Midland, Tiffin, Port McNichol, Collingwood, Coderich, Kingston, Fort Colborne, Prescott, Quebec,. St. John, Montreal and Halifax. A revised estimate places the amount at about 20,000,000 bushels. A consid erable amount is the property of American grain dealers. Owners to Be Paid Promptly. The grain was taken Saturday night so that grain exchanges should be af fected as little as possible. It is offi cially stated that the prifte will be fairly adjusted and the grain owners promptly paid by the Canadian gov ernment. It is estimated that there is still in Canada, in the hands of farmers and dealers west of Fort Wil liam, 150,000,000 bushels surplus of wheat available for export. It is ex pected that most of this will be taken in the future for the use of Great Britain, France and Italy. The domestic supply of Russia is more than suffi cient to meet the needs of that coun try. Had' the Dardanelles been forced, the surplus of Russian wheat would have made the present action unneces sary. While the wheat Just taken was commandeered to flU an order from the British government^ for a large quan tity of wheat, it is understood most of it will be shipped to Italy., Shipment by Govsrnment. The Canadian government Will look after the transportation ot the grain to the Atlantic seaboard and from there Its shipment across the Atlantic will be undertaken by the ,British gov ernment. For some months th*re have been negotiations between the British au thorities and the Canadian govern ment relative to the marketing of the tremendous wheat crop, but only, on Saturday were instructions received in connections with the expropriation. This year's Canadian wheat crop, according to the last official, estimate, 36,000,000 bushels.. Later unoffl- cial figures placed the crop at. about 950,000,000 bushels. For export the surplus I* expected to exceed 200,006, 000 bushsls. Great Britain'* demand is caused by war-time, condition*'and the Canadian government's action Is attributable to the same cause. The present order goes no further than, the amount, stated, but It ia anno that very large supplies afo ,n and though there is no official an nouncement to that effect'It is mdre than likely that more wheat will -be, :*the commandeering order, goes no reaujhred on similar tine* l4te$ farther than is stated above, and in- 4 s' •-l :v •'u N MAKSIIALLTOWN.

Chicago, Nov. 29.—Wheat jumped in price as a result of th©, Canadian gov ernment's seizure of ^004,000 bushela._ Predictions that a ([-cent advance' would be added to values were not veritied, the extreme opening changes being 2li cents higher. The market'opened excited, with De cember delivery at 1 9S to 1.06, as against 1.03H at the dose of Saturday and with May ut 1.0T to 1.08Vi, as against 1.06 to 1.06%. Commission houses and shorts were the most active buyers. Some were scattered, aitho one of the^largest firms boldly took the position that the action of the Cana dian gevernment was that Cunada was to have preference in filling foreign requirements, this meaning a falling off in United States exports. Reaction from top initial figures quickly took place. Bulls were to a large extent held in check by opinions industriously circulated that the Eng lish government would probably do all or nearly all of the British, French and Italian business. Excitement in Winnipeg, Winnipeg, Nov. 29.—There will be no option market here today except for course grain.

British Government in Ignorance. London, Nov. 23.—The press bureau made the following report today: "With re.ernce to the announcement from Ottawa, Ont, on Nov. 28 that the Canadian government had comman deered 16,000,000 bushels of wheat at the request of the British government, the board of agriculture states that they have made no such request and that at present they have no infor mation on the subject." CANADA IS3UES STATEMENT. Government Gives Reasons For Seizure of Grain in 8tor*. Ottawa, Ont, Nov. 29.—The follow ing statement regarding the comman deering of Canadian wheat was Issued by ,the government last night. "The phenomenal crop of wheat in the Canadian west has brought upon the government the duty of assisting to the farthest extent possible in its marketing. The supply of wheat the world over is known to have been abundant, and the importance of tnk lng advantage of every opportunity to provide for the disposing of our grain is on that account the greater. "For many months the government hap been In touch with the British au thorities with a view to procuring or ders from the United Kingdom and tho allied governments, in order that the utmost share of the consuming de mand In those countries may be turned toward our Canadian surplus. As a consequence of this the British gov ernment has requested the Canadian government to provide within a short time a very la^ge supply of Nos. 1, 2 and 3 northern wheat. '•The problem of meeting these re quirements and of doing so at such pMces as would Induce the repetition of orders In Canada then confronted the government. "The effect of government purchases In the open market, such as were made by different countries a year ago. Is well known to the public. The market flse* abnormally, adding to the profits of gtain dealers and speculators, who have purchased the grain which the governments require.

GOVERNMENT CASE ALMOST FINISHED British Skipper Testifies to Being Of fered $10,000 Bribe to Sail His Ship to Destination Deaired by Gorman Supercargo—Plan* Go Awry—One 8hip Idle For Many Days Await ing Ships Which Fail to Arrive. Xow York, Nov. 29.—The government expects late today to complete Its case against Karl Buenz and other officials o£ the Ha"»b"'*-Ajn®rican are on trlal here on government. The defense will take no more than Thorwald Olsen, skipper of the Hwina, which sailed Aug. 6. 1914, from Philadelphia for La Guayras, with a German supercargo, Herr Deckwolf, aboard, testified that Hackmelster chartered her and the supercargo di rected her movements. Failed to Meet Ships. "Wh*sujK» neared La Guayras," Captain O^sen said, "the supercargo t«3ftane he OJd.nfet, want t£ gp.t)vexe. ji *'alled by his order* 200 miles out of my course, and cruised back and forth in the Caribbean from nine to eleven days. We saw no German ships and then put into La Guayras." Did you discharge your cargo?" "So we sailed for St. Thomas, Dan ish West Indies, but the French cruis er Conde captured us and took us into Martinique. The cargo, worth )25,000, was confiscated, and the Helna held up until last March, when she sailed back to New York." John J. Turney, of Philadelphia, re called for croBs examination, testified that Hachmeister apparently did not realize at first that he had to manifest provisions as well as coal. "But when I did tell him that." Mr. Turney said, "he ordered the provisions manifest ed." Skipper Offered $10,000. This testimony was In line with the contention of the defense that failure to manifest provisions was a trifling offense because It was unintentional. Eric Olson, master of the steamer Unita, Philadelphia to Cadiz, testified the German supercargo on his steamer asked him to go down to the West Indies and coal a German orulser. "I told "him no," the skipper snort ed. "He then offered me $10,000 If would do it. I told him I was going to Cadiz. I told him I was a British citi zen nnd would pot coal a German ves sel for a million dollars. We kept on to Cadiz and got there without any monkey business." After examining several witnesses who testified to minor matters the government rested its ca*e, Demand as to Boy-Ed. The government was called on to day to state whether It considered Captain Boy-Ed1, German naval at tache, in the light of a conspirator with the Hamburg-American line In structions have, been given that all loading now under way is to be con tinued and no delay whatever occur In the transport of the commandeered grain from the elevators to ocean terminals. "It will be observed that the order doe* not apply to grain in elevators West^ of th* lakes or In transit at the time the order takes effect or sub quently thereto, "There aN£ of course, many ques tion* of Import detail that arise and demand adjustment*, and these will be given the fullest consideration and the promptest decision possible. "There seems no reason why the grain markets should be radically af fected by the aetion taken. Obviously it does not Involve any increase In the world's consumers, or, indeed. In the world's consumers' demand. It means simply the filing of the existing de mand to the extent of the grain taken by this much of the Canadian sur plus instead of filling the same from other surpluses. If the result should be a rise In the Canadian prices, then beneficial effect will largely accrue to the grain farmers themselves and not to the hblder* of the grain in store. "While the holders of grain in store aTe entitled to fair treatment, it has been thought desirable not to precipi tate market condition* at the expense of the customers from whom we hope to obtfdn order* fn the future and who are our allies in the war. "The action hy the British govern ment is based entirely on war condi tions, and the response of the Canadian Government has' been dictated by re gard to the same, state of facts.", Lv'V '""'A '-rJ NEWS OF line who charges of aliegea a day to present their seI declared, ev'Jence- coun" When the trial was resumed today Ralph J.

Mr. Bullowa testified as to negotia tions with defendants for the sailings of the vessels, and identified a mem orandum signed by Buenz, in which the Hamburg-American line agreed to pay the full valud of the steamers in case they came to harm.
