Cologne. The British army appears ;o have acquired a strong grip on this lection of occupied Germany, and the loldlers get along very well with the people. They mingle freely with them In the streets, restaurants and cafes, ind pick up colloquial phrases very readily. There has been very little friction between the Tommies and the Inhabitants. All disputes between the irniy of occupation and the people of Cologne have been brought before a :ourt of arbitration, and the Gernmns lo far have not complained of any of the awards. There is more business In Colo?me In tommerclal and trade circles than In the other large German cities, which 'm owing to the business transacted sith England and Holland. The Dutch nerchants are sending all the food- ituffs they can lay hands upon into Germany, which keeps the prices very Sigh in their own country and is caus ing strong protests to be made by the working classes In Rotterdam, Amster- lam and other cities. The goods are brought from Holland to Dusseldorf md Cologne by freight steamboats, rhere Is considerable activity in the factories in Aachen, Dusseldorf and Cologne. The people in these centers ire paying attention to their business ind are more optimistic in regard to the outlook than the Germans In Ber lin, Hamburg and Frankfort. Fight All Gone. The British officers of senior rank with whom I have conversed here say that they do not believe there Is any probability of the nation wanting to light for many years to come. The Sermnns, apart from the officers and anderofflcers of the old array, who )ave been trained to arms as a calling. ill not go to war In a hurry because they have realized very clearly that It joes not pay, and they do not wish their sons to be trained as soldiers ns oon as they leave school and sub lected to the tyranny of the drill Ser jeants. An English officer of high rank, who speaks German fluently and has trav eled all over the country In the last year, said. In speaking on this subject : At the present time Germany could put a well-equipped anny of 000.000 officers and men Into the Held If they could be organized to fight together. The major part of this force is the army of the Baltic and the smaller bodies of troops who have not yet been disbanded. The ordinary German workman, so far as my knowledge goes. Is fed up with war, and desires to live with his family and pursue his trade peacefully. "The French military authorities do not agree with this view in regard to the Germans and believe that they are secretly organizing to avenge their de feat. The officers, especially the Prus sians of .the old regime, would no doubt like to do this, as fighting Is their trade, but the rank and file would refuse to follow them Into the field. "The Germans have plenty of Rlr plnnes, arms and ammunition. Out of 28,000 field guns they possessed when the armistice was signed they have de stroyed only 2.000 so far. It Is very difficult to get the German govern ment to carry out the conditions of the peace treaty, which demand that these guns should be destroyed, and that the forts and strategic railways constructed in the course of the war should be demolished. The claim Is put forth that all this work would oc cupy a long time and would be unpro ductive nnd expensive to the govern ment, which has no funds to meet It. Personally, Judging from the slow manner in which things have been done so far, I think it. will be years before these conditions are fulfilled, if ever. "There Is one thing certain to any sane person who knows the conditions existing here at the present time : that is, if Germany is to pay the Indemnity, or any portion of It, in the near future she must be supplied with raw mate rials to start the factories to work and with foodstuffs for the people. Officials Are Civil. "There Is a good deal of talk among the better class in favor of a constitu tional monarchy on similar lines to that of Great Britain, but that would be Impossible so fur as any of the Gorman princes are concerned. They do not know the meaning of such a form of government and would Imme diately become autocratic dictators directly any one of them usceuded the throne. It took England nearly a hun dred years to persuade the Hanove rian sovereigns tliat they were to be seen and not heard, so far as the gov- Lovers Tie Feet; Plunge Into Sea Hllo, Island v of Hawaii.

Tafaburo was drowned but the woman was pulled from the surf by W. Pine haka. Jailer of North Kohala. Ptnehaka saw the pair, with ankles and bodies tied together, leap as one Into the aea from the rocks below Uawl, on the North Kohala coast He scram bled down to the water's edge just as the tide washed the woman back to shore, the bonda that tied her to her companion having broken. Later Tafaburo's body was recovered by Hawaiian divers. The woman's Infant child, wrapped In her obL or girdle, was found hanging on a tree not far from the spot where she had failed in her attempt at suicide.

It was a strange sight to visitors la Cologne on Saturday, June S, to see the British troops with massed bands parading the cnthedral square in honor of King George's birthday. The people filled all the side streets and crowded the windows of the shops and houses which overlooked the scene. They be haved In an orderly manner,, and the mounted German policemen who were on duty had no difficulty In keeping the big crowd back. Before the war Cologne was very prosperous and had a large garrison. There is a great change In the bearing of the railway and street car officials toward the ordlncry people.. Their smart uniforms nnd autocratic man ners of former days have disappeared. They now slouch about tn old anny uniforms minus the facing, and are civil to the public almost to the point of servility, ....... There Is a little more meat In Co logne than In Berlin, which Is due to the supplies coming up the Rhine from Rotterdam for the British army, and the bread Is of a better quality. The Tommy gets his rations and his white bread dally and purchases his extra supplies from the canteen. With she low rate of exchange he has been liv ing In clover on his army pay, and the majority hope that the occupation will last for years. The greater number of these soldiers did not take part In the great war, but are older men who enlisted for three years' service In the occupied territory after the armistice was signed. John M.
