put In order to bring the deliveries to
Franco up to approximately 2,000,000
tone per month, there has been re
newed agitation among the miners for
the nationalisation of the mining In

In the meantime, however, as the re
sult of earlier agitation for govern
ment control and operation of the lead
ing Industries, the national economic
bureau of the German treasury de
partment has quite a few Important
government controlled Industrial
plants to look after, according to a
summary of its activities recently pub
lished In the German press and quoted
from In commerce reports. The most
Important of the government factories
are the arsenals and naval construc
tion yards, which are now engaged on
non-military construction. This In
clude* the manufacture of steel, the
making of all sorts and descriptions
of machinery in large quantities,
especially for agricultural and do
mestic purposes, and the repairing of
rolling stock and locomotives. Small
arms works are being maintained as
such so far as Is consistent with the
provisions of the peace treaty.
Stat* in Control.
"In order to consolidate (tie govern
ment Interests In these different un
dertakings a company was formed In
[December, 1019, called the German In
dustrial Stock company, with a capi
tal of 100.000,000 marks (nominally
fli3.800.000 : at current exchange, about
#2,250,000) ; the whole of the shares
being In the hands of the government.
•The state thus exercises either full or
partial control, according to the num
ber of electrical, electrochemical and
other undertakings.

output of 100.000 kilowatts and,' be
sides,' running tbe nitrogen plant, sup
plies current to the Berlin Electric
works, and will shortly extend this
supply of energy to Lefpsic and the
province of Saxony. The Central Ger
man Power Works company comprises
the central power station at Senften
berg, formerly belonging to the Alum
inum works, Lauta, with an output of
00,000 kilowatts; and the Niederlau
sltxer Power plant, near Spremberg,
with adjacent lignite mines, and with
an output of 20,000 kilowatts. Up to
the present the electric energy devel
oped by these two plants has been util
ized In the manufacture of aluminum
and nitrogen. In the future It will also
be employed to supply electricity for
the surrounding Industrial districts.
The East Prussia central station,
which was recently erected to provide
the province of East Prussia with
electric power. Is controlled, as also
is the Alz works, Munich, which was
formed In 1918, In conjunction with
the Dr. Wacker Alexander company,
for electrochemical manufacturing, to
utilize the water power of the lower
Alz. The output Is, roughly, 20,000
kilowatts. The Württemberg Rural
Electric company was reorganized m
1919 to enable the state, with the con
sent of the Württemberg government,
to take a dominant interest in the
supply of electricity to tbe province of
Great efforts were made during the
war to put the manufacture of alum
inum on a Arm footing, In order to
make Germany Independent of foreign
supplies. Plants were erected and the
manufacture started at Horrem, Bit
terfeld and Rummelsburg, each factory
having an output of 3,000 tons of alum
inum per annum. In 1916 the Erft
werk company was taken over by the
government and reorganized with a
capital of 25,000,000 marks. The
branch works of this company, ln Gre
venbroich (lower Rhine), have been
fitted np to produce 12,000 tons of
aluminum per annum.
Iron and 8tesl Mills.
In regard to Iron and steel mills the
Useder Smelting company and the
Peiner Rolling Mills company are con
trolled. These works have a capital
of 20,000,000 marks, of which the gov
ernment holds 25 per cent. The chief
features of this undertaking are that
the mines producing the ore are in
close proximity to the smelting and
rolling plant, and that, situated as
they are in central Germany, they have
an advantage over the competing
works in Westphalia In placing their
output In adjacent districts. In pre
war days their yearly output of o*
amounted to 1,000,000 tons.

Austrian Collapae Charged to Emper
or's Conflicting War Orders,
8aya Commission.
Vienna.—Chief blame for the col
lapse of the Austrian forces on tbe
Plave river, In the Austro-Itallan cam
paign, Is placed on the former Em
peror Carl by the report of a commis
sion appointed to Investigate war de
On the fateful November 2, 1918, the
report says, the then emperor Issued
three conflicting orders within a few
hours. The first was for the conclu
sion of an armistice. Forty-five min
utes later this was revoked and 05
minutes afterward it was issued again.
During this period, it was said, the
emperor consulted no one on the mat
ftr. •
"We must ask," the report says,
"whether the emperor and his advisers
were not guided by the fear of the
army flooding back on Vienna rather
than by any other circumstances. It
may be, perhaps, not by express Inten
tion but rather subconsciously, that
the desire prevailed with more than
one of these men that the troops had
better not return home at all."
J 6,000,000 marks, a large portion of
which belongs to the state, is also rep
sented on the board of the Govern
ment Holding company. The Bavar
ian Lloyd held a commanding position
In transport work on the Danube and
neighboring rivers, but lost the great
er part of Its vessels at tWe end of the
war. Negotiations are, however, pro
ceeding between the different govern
ment departments and others Inter
ested to put the company once more
on a commercial footing. The German
ship-salvage company "Odin," Berlin,
with a capital of 5,000,000 marks, was
originally formed to carry out work
In connection with the salvage of
transports and other shipping in the
Baltic. The company was not very
successful owing to the unsuitable
methods of salvage adopted. It Is now
proposed to divert the company's ac
tivities to towage and lighterage work.
According to a resolution adopted by
the German Metal Economic league,
reported by the Wolff Telegraph Bu
reau, the export of 50 per cent of all
pig metals coming from German mines
during May, June, July and August
is to be permitted. No limitais placed
upon the export of all partly manu
factured metal products, provided they
are not sold at prices under the do
mestic rates. German manufacturers
may Import raw metals, !f they do
not pay more than the standard prices
In the world market. German export
prices on semi-manufactured Iron and
steel products have been materially
lowered during the last few months.
Bar Iron selling at 8,336 marks In
April bas been cut to 4,000 marks per
ton for export to Holland and Switzer
land and to 3,050 to Denmark, the lat
ter being the same as the domestic
rate In Germany. The Iron Industry
is protesting against further payment
of export duties.

Sentenced for Sedition, He Refused
Steadfastly to Take Nourish
ment—Pardon Denied Him
—High Sinn Feiner.
LONDON. — Terence MacSwiney,
lord • mayor of Cork, died at Brixton
prison Monday morning following a
hunger strike of 73 days.
The lord mayor's death occurred at
5:40 a'clock this morning. Father
Dominic, his private chaplain, and his
brother, John MacSwiney were with
him at the time. MacSwiney never
regained consciousness.
The story of the self-starvation of
Terenece MacSwiney, lord mayor of
Cork, probably will become one of
the most moving chapters of the cen
turies-long history of the Irish strug
gle. No other controversy has stirred
Great Britain so deeply as this since
the one that centered upon Cecil
Rhodes, when the Jameson raid was
balked by Paul Kragefr and the raid
ers imprisoned.
Notable Controveraiea Arise.
Two notable controversies, one
constitutional and the other theolog
ical, arose from the case. The first
was whether King George could
properly exercise his pardoning pre
rogative independently of or-against
the advice of his ministers. The sec
ond was whether the Catholic clergy,
representing a church which holds
suicide to be a crime could consistent
ly administer the sacraments to hun
ger strikers. The king's reply,
through the secretary of state for
war, to the petition of members of
parliament was generally interpreted
to mean that the king's personal
leaning was toward granting a par
don. But Premier Lloyd George and
the foreign minister, A. Bonar Law,
were against clemency for the lord
History of His Offending.
MacSwiney's hunger strike was be
gun on August 12 when, with 10 of
his, associates, he was arrested by
soldiers in Cork while attending k
session of a Sinn Fein court. After
trial by a courtmartial under the reg
ulations of the defense of the realm
act, he was found guilty of sedition
and sentenced to two years' imprison
ment, which he was serving In Brix
ton prison in London.
MacSwiney, then an alderman of
Cork, was elected lord mayor of the
city at a special session of the Cork
corporation on March 30 of this year.
He was a well known Sinn Fein
leader and, prior to his election, had
been deported and Imprisoned several
times, one of the latest notable in
stances of his confinement having
been in 1916 In connection with the
