It was recognized that the dread ed "overt act" may now be expect ed at Any moment and this situa tion prompted a belief that prepar ations for protecting American ships would be hastened. There was evident anexiety at the State Department over the fate of the seventy-two citizns taken , to Germany from the captured Yar rowdale. Definite advices from abroad in dicated that Germany was holding the Yarrowdals prisoners Rto assure protections of Germans in the Uni ted States. The first direct report to the de partment from recalled Ambassador Gerard reached Washington tonight from Berne. It said nothing about the Yarrowdale prisoners. It was confined to question as to the disposition to be made of the LEMON SHORTAGE. Better lay in a supply of lemons, said a produce salesman to the Re view reporter today. Right soon a higher, price may be expected, be cause of the submarine activity, lemon shipments from Sicily have about stopped and this means a shortage. Here is the situation as reports give it from New York. To keep the lemon supply at normal in the United States there should be 350,000 cases on the high seas right now, whereas, there, are bookings of only 16,000 cases for American ports at this time, without the sup ply from Italy. This country reustj depend ' upon its supply from Culi f..-rnia, which is the only American, section that produces the lemon to any commercial extent. Of course there is nothing known of the cold storage supply that is being held in the United States, but it is not be lieved, it would be sufficient, to hold prices down to the present level. Buy lemons, but dont look sour. ■ FOR SALE Cheap piece of property on Sec ond St., near Episcopal Church. M. P. Palmer. THE ARCADE THEATRE Home of the Best in Photo-Plays.

It was learned that the adminis tration looks with little favor on this proposal, .Afhich Ambassador Gerard declined tty forward to this govern ment before he left Berlin. The department takes the posi tion that Germany has already abro gated this treaty and that this gov ernment Urlll not consent to renew it at this time.

The bill entitled "An Act to Dis courage the Violation of Interna tional Law on the High Seas," would provide that whenever any belligerent in any war in which the United States is not engaged "shall engage in or permit a course of war fare or use methods not justified or warranted by the laws of war, the ports of the United States may be freely used by the warships of any other belligerent."
