jJJJ RRRRRRRRRRRRRRJJ Mm 'RRRRH 11 THE OGDEN STANDARD: OGDEN, UTAH, THURSDAY. MARCH 21, 1916.- 3- 'H ; President Wilson Issues a Statement, Explaining Why the Ships Were Seized. WASHINGTON, March 20. Upon Holland's refusal, in the face of Ger man threats to put Into effect her vol untary agreement for restoring her merchant marine to normal activity, the United States government last J njgi,t requisitioned all Dutch ships in I American waters. At the same time , Great Britain was taking over Dutch f vessels in British ports. A total of seventy-seven ships of probably 600,000 tons was added to the American merchant marine by the re quisitioning. Another 400,000 tons are put Into the allied service by Great Britain's action. Most of them -will be used in the food carrying trade be ll tween the United States and Europe i Waited 48 Hours. President Wilson's proclamation tak I in'" over the ships was issued only aft ( erword finally came from London that ! Holland's delayed reply was a repec- tion of the British-American demand. The government had waited more than -IS hours beyond the timo when Hoi I land had been requested to make a do " clslon as to whether she would carry " out the original pact or submit to ro "' quisitionlng. Every effort was made ; to avoid drastic action, as transfer by i agreement was sought rather than by I seizure, although the latter is an cx t ercise of sovereign rights justified in s international law and practiced by all 1 nations. j As late as 6 o'clock last night it was disclosed that President Wilson dur- ing the day had been informed of the delay in the Dutch reply, with the re , quest that ho indicate whothor or not I the requisitioning should proceed. He ; decided to await the formal reply, j which proved unacceptable, although under other conditions it might have served as a basis for further negotia tions. Ii Proclamation Issued. The president's proclamation was is ! sued immediately, authorizing the navy to take over the vessels, which would be equipped and operated by the navy department and the shipping board, the Dutch crews being supple : mented by American civilian sailors , ;i and naval reservists. Compensation l will bo made to the owners as required J : i by law. "s Although the ships have been taken j over without any formal agreement, j the United States proposes to carry jj out scrupulously the terms of the orig ' : Inal pact, so that Holland shall receive ample foodstuffs and will be protect lM ed in her colonial trade by having suf ) ficlent tonnage to maintain its com m merce. fl In a statement outlining the negotla S tions which preceded the requisition-S- ing, President Wilson pointed out that fl the permanent agreement had been M , blocked by Germany, despite the lit- ! tic kingdom's acute need of foodstuffs, fl' for which the agreement provided. A temporary agreement then was nego tiated to tide over the emergency and H' that, too, was hold up by Prussian di ll plomacy. President's Statement. : President Wilson authorized last night the following statement: "For somo months tha United ! States and the entente allies have been conducting negotiations with the i Dutch government, with the object of !' concluding a general commercial i agreement. ' "A very clear statement of the char ; acter of these negotiations was made on March 12 to tho butch parliament i by his excellency, the minister of for i ; eign affairs of Holland. As appears I I from the statement, the discussion , proceeded upon the basis of two fun ! damental propositions, namely, that tho United States and the Allies , should facilitate tho Importation into Holland of foodstuffs and other com modities required to maintain their ; economic life and that Holland should : restore her merchant marine to a nor : mal condition of activity. "It was the task of the negotiators to develop a specific application of those propositions which would he ac ceptable to the government concerned. "Early in January, 1918, the negotla ! tors camo to an understanding which , was embodied in a tentative agree ment which was submitted to the gov ernments concerned in order that, if acceptable, it might be ratified, or, If unacceptable a counter-proposal might be made. "The negotiations becoming pro longed, the Dutch delegates proposed, in order that their ships might ?Donor be put into remunerative service, that Dutch tonnage lying idle in American waters should, with certain exceptions, bo immediately chartered to the Unit ed States for periods not exceeding ninety days. This proposal was accept- ' w-uim- j saajaMgi i i i in i 1 1 1 y Ul- II I 9 j I Catarrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured s r by local application, oo they cannot reach . jj th dtocased portion of the ear Thcro l t only one Tray to euro catnrrbal deafness, : ff ana that la by a constitutional remedy. i Catarrhal Deafness 1 caused by an ln- I flamed condition of tho mucous lining of " 1 tho Eustachian Tubo.

CO,, Toledo, C cd by the United Stalos government and on Jnnuary 25, 1918, tho Dutch minister at Washington handed to the secretary of stato or the United States a note expressing tho terms of the temporary chartering agreement and his government's acceptance thereof. "This agreement provided, among other things, that 150,000 tons of Dutch shipping should, at the discre tion, of the United States be employed partly In the service of Belgian re lief and partly for Switzerland on safe conduct to Cette, France, and that for each ship sent to Holland in me servico of Belgian relief a correspond ing vessel should leave Holland for tho United States. Two Dutch ships In the United States ports with cargoes of foodstuffs were to proceed to Hol land, similar tonnage being sent in ex change from Holland to the United States for charter, as in the case of other Dutch ships lying in tho United States ports. "The agreement was explicitly tem porary in character and, being de signed to meet an immediate situa tion, prompt performance was of the essence. The Dutcu government at once disclosed, however, that it was unwilling or'unablo to carry out this chartering agreement which it had it solf proposed. The first desire of tho United States was to secure at once shipping, as contemplated by tho agreement to transport to Switzerland foodstuffs much needed by the state. One difficulty after another was, how ever, raised to postpone the charter ing of Dutch ships for Swiss relief, and, although the reason was never formally expressed, it was generally known that the Dutch ship owners feared lest their ships should be de stroyed by German submarines, oven though on an errand of mercy, and though not traversing any of tho so called 'danger zones' proclaimed by tho German government That this fear was not wholly unjustified has unhappily been shown by the recent act of tho German government in sinking the Spanish ship 'Sardlnero' outside the 'danger zone,' when car rying a cargo of grain for Switzer land and after- tho submarine com mander had ascertained this fact by an inspection of. the ship's papers. "in respect of Belgian relief, the Dutch government expressed its pres ent inability to comply with the agreement on the ground that the German government had given Hol land to understand that it wiuld forcibly prevent the doparturo trom Holland of tho corresponding ships, which under tho agreement were to leave coincidentally for tho United States. Tho Dutch government even felt itself unable to secure the two cargoes of foodstuffs, which under the agreement it was permitted to secure, since here again the German government intervened and threat ened to destroy the equivalent, Dutch tonnage which under the agreement was to leave Holland for tho United States. "Nearly two -months have elapsed since the making of the temporary chartering agreement and the pro posed general agreement has lain even longer without reply on the part of Holand. Meanwhile the German threats have grown more violent, with a view to preventing any per manent agreement and of forcing Holland to violate any .temporary agreement. "On March 7, through Great Bri tain, a final proposal expiring on the eighteenth was submitted to Hol land. A reply has been received", which, while in itself unacceptable, might under other conditions have served as a basis for further negotia tions. But the events to which I have alluded have served to demonstrate conclusively that wo have beon at tempting to negotiate where the es sential basis for an agreement, name ly, the meeting of freo wills, is ab sent. Even were an agreement con cluded, there is lacking that power of independent action which alono can assure performance. "I say this not in criticism of the Dutch government. I profoundly sym pathize with tho difficulty of her posi tion under the menace of a military power which has in every way dem onstrated Its disdain of neutral rights. But, since coercion does in fact exist, no alternative is left to us but to accomplish, through tho ex ercise of our indisputable rights as a sovereign, that which is so reason able that, in other circumstances, we could be confident of accomplishing it by agreement. "Steps are accordingly heing taken to put into our service Dutch ship ping lying within our territorial juris diction. This action on our part and the similar action which is being taken by governments associated with us leaves to Holland ample tonnage for her domestic and colonial needs. Wo have informed tho Dutch government that her colonial trade will be facili tated and that she may at once send ships from Holland to secure the bread cereals which her people require. These ships will bo freely bunkered and will be immune from detention on our part Tho liner Now Amsterdam which came within our jurisdiction un der an agreement for her return, will, ' of course, be permitted at onco to re turn to Holland.

It will deal in oil issues exclusively and in no promotions, the organizers an nounce. Mining stocks will not be called. Tho Initial steps toward tho estab lishment of tho exchange were takon by Mr. Mclntyro about two months ago. Because of business requiring his attention in Denver, tho organization of tho local exchango was permitted to rest temporarily. About two weeks ago Mr. McCoy and Mr. Hughes came to Salt Lake to make final arrange ments and since that time thoy have been negotiating for suitable quarters. The exchange is reported lo have received tllo Bupport of many repre sentative business men of tho city and tho chief object of tho organizers be tween now and tho opening date will bo to procure additional support, ar range for furniture and trainod assis tants.

' iSriES Internal Trade Leaps to Un heard of Proportions Due to War Conditions. MANILA, Jan. 28, (Correspondence or tho Associated Press.) The Philip pine Islands have enjoyed during tho past twelve months the greatest pros perity in .their history. War conditions, prices and demands are directly re sponsible. In the past two year's, tho balance of trade is favor of the islands has been $50,000,000, G5 per cent of which is to bo accounted for in tho unprecedented prosperity of 1917. Internal trade has leaped to un heard of proportions. Thero is more money in every part of the Philippines today than ever before. More business is being dono and tho currency re flects this condition. Despite constant accretions to tho currency, through importations from United States mints, tho Philippine hank, tho gov ernment financial institution, has had to issue paper ten, twenty and fifty contavo bills, and one peso notes. Internal revenue taxes, collected on the same basis in 1917 as in 1916, went up nearly 33 1-3 per cent reaching tho highest flguro in history. Sugar an Exception. With the oxception of sugar, all de partments of Insular trade profited by tho prosperity of tho country Freight rates quintupled and sextupledr for su gar, and the Phillppino producers often faced a loss on, their sales in the Unit ed States. When tho price of sugar in the Unit ed States was fixed by the food control board, It was so regulated that under existing transpacific rates profitable transactions in Philippine sugar were no longer possible. Samuel Ferguson, president of the government bank mado a special trip to Washington in tho interests of tho sugar men and got a pledge of additional ships for the Philippines. Whother tills pledge in cluded provision tor lower freight rates is not known here. Unless tho new ships bring a substantial reduc tion in existing freight rates, it is be lieved tney win not help out the sugar industry. Hemp Plays Big Role. Homp, with all the world demand ing it for ships and war vessels, play ed a big role in tho prosperity of the islands. During 1917 it reached record prices and paid its producers hand somely. Hundreds of owners planta tions have become rich in tho past two years. Scores of Americans who years ago picked out Mindanao, tho land of tho untamed Moro, as ideally suitable to homp, and then struggled along for years on tho verge of bankruptcy, sud denly found their optimism justified and their years of toll and hardship i repaid by two years of undreamed of I prosperity. Likewise the cocoanut planters havo been carried along on the crest of the wavo of success. During tho early part of the year, prices rose steadily I as American manufacturers demanded the product at any cost But freights also rose. This led many business men to figure that If it were possible to sell the raw copra tho dried meat of the cocoanut at a profit it would bo much more profitable to extract tho oil locally, save a large part of the freight costs and count that saving as profit During the year, fully twenty cocoanut oil mills, all of small capacity wore started in Manila alone and in tho provinces as many moro were inaug urated. Tobacco Business Great. Tho tobacco planters, manufacturers and dealers have also had a year ol Unparallellcd business success. The demand for Philippine tobacco and ci gars from the United States has been such that Phillppino growers and planters have been unable to meet it Tho year' saw tho cigar production of tho islands very largely increased whilo tho acreage planted to tobacco was also largely increased. But thero aro no signs of abatement of the de mand. A similar story can be told In every lino of Philippine business. .The coun try is literally rolling in money. nn FORMER EMPRESS OF ABYSSINIA BIES LONDON, Feb. 28 (Mail.)

INTERNED BY Tl GOHIEI SALT LAKE, March 21. As an aftermath of the exposuro of John van Valkenburg, self-styled "inventor" of marvelous airships with power to travel at tho rato of from 400 to 5000 miles an hour, and possessor of mys terious influenco to overcome the force of gravity, Paul Valtlnko and John Gelse, accomplices of Van Valken burg, were arrested yesterday on pres idential warrants received by the United States marshal. They will be intftrrmrl ns damrorous enemy aliens. Valtinko Is a chemist, geologist and musician, and has been a resident of Salt Lake for nlany years. Ho is said to bo moro thoroughly familiar with tho mining. sections of Utah than any other man in the state, having pros pected extensively. As a chemist ho is said to have few equals in the west Ho Is a musician and composer and is said lo havo written a patriotic song which he has submitted to the govern ment for approval. Because of his affiliation with Van Valkenhurg, whom federal officials say they have evidence to show has been operating as an agent of tho German government and because of his knowl edge of tho mineral resources of tho state, information concerning which ho would not hesitate to furnish to tho enemy, Valtlnko Is regarded as a dangerous enemy alien. When brought into the United States marshal's ofllce yesterday afternoon Valtinke protested vehemently against being detained and declared that his period of usefulness "had been brought to an end." In strong terms he hcapod anathemas on the government and de clared that the United States is not a free country. Valtinke was born August 20, 1S7S, at Berlin, Germany. Ho has been -a resident of the United States for the ,H past eleven years, but never made any IH effort to become a naturalized citizen. Gcisc was first restrained of his lib- ' erty on March 11, at the time of the RH arrest of Van Valkenburg, as a fol lower of the latter.
