GERMANY; EBERT'S RULE OVERTHROWN Liebknecht Appeals to Soldiers to Fight Bourgeoisie. WORKMEN GIVEN CONTROL Revolts in England and France Are Among the Demands —Agitation Is the official Propaganda of the Extremists. Amsterdam. Nov. 26. —Liebkneclit, the radical, has emerged victorious over Ebert, the moderate, in a three days’ struggle at Berlin. As in the previous revolutionary combats, the struggle between the two rebel wings has been comparatively bloodless, but the future is fraught wPth danger, for the radicals, now in complete power, have written upon their banner • “The end justifies all means.” The affairs of all Germany rest tor ihe moment in the hands of the Ber lin workmen and soldiers’ council, which has wrested all power from the Elbert government. The chancellor and his ministers are reduced to fig ureheads. Liebknecht is devoting himself pri marily at present to an effort to influ ence the men returning from the front. The radical leader’s oratory is forceful and vindictive. His principal appeal to the proletariat runs thus: Assails “the Bourgeoisie.” “Did the bourgeoisie while in power permit you to have a voice in the gov ernment? No; then the working man must not allow it to have a say now. We need a government of soldiers and workmen, one typifying the proletari at, which will not have to how down before the entente. “There must he no dickering with entente imperialism. We will dispose of that just as we did of the German autocracy.. The revolution is bound also to reach the entente countries, hut we, who made the Russians waste whole years, are demanding that the revolution break out in England and France within 24 hours.” Simultaneously with the specter of the Red terror another has arisen on the horizon of the strife-swept for mer empire: A definite split between North and South Germany, and conse quent civil war. Civil War Near. The South German states, Bavaria !n the lead, have served an ultimatum on the Berlin government that if it is found impossible at the Berlin confer ence to re-establish unity throughout the land, Bavaria, Wuerttemberg, Hesse and Baden will secede from northern Germany and form a repub lic, uniting the states of South Ger many with German Austria. The climax of the struggle between the Spartacus (radical) group and the moderates came when a document was signed between them which Berlin dis patches describe as an “agreement/’ but which actually was the Ebert gov ernment’s surrender, for in it the mod erates signed away virtually all their power to the Berlin workmen’s and soldiers’ council. What Agreement Provides. The agreement provides: “First —All political power is to be In the hands of the German socialist republic and the soldiers’ and work men’s council. “Second —Their aim is to defend and. j develop what has been accomplished by the revolution and to suppress all counter-revolutionary activity. “Third —Pending the election of representatives of the soldiers and workmen’s councils to an executive I council of the German republic, the executive council in Berlin is to exer cise its functions. “Fourth —The appointment and dis missal of all members of the various legislative bodies of the republic and until the final constitution is estab lished, of Prussia, are to be made by the central executive council, which also has the right of control. “Fifth —Before the cabinet appoints assistant ministers the executive council must be consulted. “Sixth —A convention of deputies drawn from the soldiers and work men’s councils is to be summoned as soon as possible.” 26 HUNS SENT TO PRISON German Riding Master Seized Near Fort Sheridan Among Those Or dered Interned.

The warfare between man and his insect competitors is only to a small degree waged at the point of the bay onet ; it is generally a struggle for the means of subsistence. Man has many times been beaten by locusts devour ing his pastures, meadows and grain. Crawlers on the ground and buzzers in j the air, moths with wings like silver down and caterpillars with brilliant regimental stripes flutter about the gardens and orchards and march up and down tho trees and shrubs, either devouring as rhey go or planting eggs from which future devourers will spring.

Japan has profited by the increased demand. The value of cutlery imports from Japan advanced from SB3 in 1914-15 to $12,734 in 1916-17. American machine tools are widely used in Siam and vig orous selling campaigns should be planned for the purpose of introducing other lines of cutlery .after, the war.— New York Journal of Commerce. ♦!

NOW FISH IN INLAND WATERS German Submarines Have Driven Hardy Dutch Sailors From Their Occupation in the North Sea. In this day of tlie lurking submarine the waters of the North sea are a marked danger zone for the fisherman of the Netherlands, and consequently the rivers and inner seas of Holland are thronged with brown-sailed fishing smacks, all eagerly pursuing the elu sive herring, salmon, pike and carp. Until the boat’s tanks or barrels are filled the dete. mined fisherman sticks at his job. If a good haul is soon made he may steer the craft up some canal to an inland town to market his catch. He gets out the sign, “Fish for Sale,” and fastens it to the mast, draws the boat up to the canal’s edge, and is soon besieged by house wives anxious to inspect his wares. The fish, as if conscious of their pend ing fate, swim uneasily about in the tank, while thrifty Dutch matrons follow certain ones excitedly with a forefinger, and the seller endeavors to locate the desired fish in the swarm ing tub. On a summer evening when a fleet of the good ships has made port after a hard day’s work, a fishing village is one of the most picturesque sights in Holland. Sails patched or torn and flapping rise and fall in the harbor with the motion of the waves. The brawny Dutch fisherman, revived by supper and the evening pipe, is curing fish and exchanging stories with neigh bors on the dock, while his wife sits before her cottage mending nets, or perhaps adorning a torn sail with a vivid red patch. There is little rest for these hard working seamen and their wives. Fish have long been to Holland what rice is to China or the potato to America. With its food supply ebbing danger ously low, Holland looks more than ever to her fisher folk to feed the people.
