Plant For Ob taining Allied Vessels For Trans porting Soldiers and Negotiations With Neutrals For Tonnage Among Questions That Receive Attention. Washington, Feb. 6. President Wilson took up personally the ship ping problem and at a conference with Chairman Hurley of the ship ping board went into the great prob lem of procuring tonnage for the movement of American troops and supplies ovtr the sea to the battle fronts. Every phase of the question was discussed, including the progress or the government building program, plans for obtaining allied ships for transporting 'soldiers and negotia tions with the European neutrals for tonnage to release American vessels for transatlantic service. The presi dent was particularly Interested io the proposal to obtain additional ships by reducing imports probably one-half. A full realizations of the extent to which America's troops movement to France depends on tonnage has come, not only to this government, but to the allies as well, and it was Indicated that one of the chief topics at the re cent session of the supreme war coun cil at Versailles was that of finding ships for that purpose. A big American army Is substan tially ready to go; but before It Is sent the war department wants to be assured It can be supplied. Ships arn available to transport the men; the problem Is keeping them furnished with materials with which to fight A million men on the fighting front wi'.l require, according to the best estimates available, from 4.000,000 to 7,000,000 tons of shipping in continu ous service across the 3,000 miles of water between America and Europe, The United States can lay its hands on about 4,000,000 tons now and ex pects to build during the year any- Depth Bomb Said to Have Avenged Destruction of the Tuscania Officials have received accounts which show that the German subma rine which sunk the Tuscania was sent to the bottom by a British des troyer, which dashed toward the evi dent location of the U-Boat and drop ped depth bombs.

To understand the attack on the pre s- According to the Daily Standard of yesterday serious charges were filed against saloon keepers at Coldwater a few days ago. The bar tender at the Charles Baker saloon plead guilty to selling intoxicat ing liquors to two minors, namely Albert Betz and Emnst Herron. Upon his plea of guilty he received a fine of $25 and costs. The hearing of 'Alexius Giere, who is also charged with selling liquor to min ors, is set tor Wednesday, February 13, at 1:30 p.m Alexius Uiere.the last named ottender, is a protege ot baloon license commis sioner A.

First, Senator Chamberlain is a Democrat, elected from Oregon, a Republican state. He wants to be re-elected, and he must have Republican votes to be re elected. He is a' professional politician Senator Stone, of Missouri, has been accused many times of being pro-Ger man. He opposed the president upon several occasions, at the beginning of the war, and brought down upon his own head the wrath of the patriotic peo ple of tuts country. His attitude now. pretending to favor the president, is be lieved to be in the interest of Germany in that he knew it would precipitate a partisan ngnt upon the president, and thus weaken the administration. No one gives Stone credit for unadulterated loyalty to this country It is generally believed that Theodore Roosevelt is a- candidate for the presi dency, it is certain that his friends would have him to be a candidate. So it is well to remember, when consider ing the attack upon the administration by the colonel, that he has his eve upon toe wnue nouse. A congressional election is to.be held this fall, and it would ot course be but natural that the Republicans seek to elect a majority ot the congress. It would also be but natural that the Democrats seek the same thing. So it follows logi cally that ootn parties are playing poli tics to tne limit Further, a number of big business in terest in this country have not been able to have their way in the matter of secur ing government contracts. Those who have been unable to secure government contracts do not feel that eff iciencv was shown in letting contracts to other con cerns. This is the way of the world. The liquor interests have opposed Sec retary Daniels since he issued the order banishing liquor from the navy. They have tried every way they could to get him out of the cabinet. Those interests are now lined up'with the opponents of the president in another effort to hinder Daniels if not force him out of the cab inet. These things are mentioned simply that the reader may understand the na ture of the warfare against the president and the administration. It will make it plain, when the truth is known, why at this critical stage of the war, any con siderable number of people should take steps to make it all the harder for the president to carry on the struggle. where fiom 3,000,000 to 6,000,000 tons more. While Chairman Hurley was pre paring for the president a complete! report on the shipping situation. Civil Engineer Frederick K. Harris of th--. naval bureau of yards and docks, who for three weeks was general manager of the emergency fleet corporation, was giving a senate Investigating commute an optimistic view of ship building progress. It is possible, Mr. Harris said, for the government to complete this year Its original pro gram of 6,000,000 tons of construction. Tho president was told by Mr. Hur- lev that bad weather In January cut construction of commandeered ships fully 60 per cent. The shipping board's plans tor building tip a great ship yard workers' reserve and for ob taining more work out of ship yard labor at present engaged wer outlined. The plan to cut imports from South America and the orient' to release ships for transporting troops and sup plies has been worked out by the ship ping ooard. The class of Imports to b reduced will be left largely to the war trade board, which '.b in control of both imports and exports. The Ohio State Journal says: "At the Franklin County Farmers' Union, the delegates, about 200 of them, expressed themselves in favor of the dry amend ment to the federal constitution, and in furtherance of this sentiment they pro pose to vote only for those candidates for the legislature who favor the amend ment. Good for the farmers. The plow and tne saloon do not enjoy any mutual sympathies. This action is of a hopeful character, for the proposed amendment will depend more upon the farmers than upon any other influence. They should combine against the indifference of the cities. They must see to it that the big cities do not run Ohio. Now is their chance. Let the farmers all over the state imitate the Franklin County farm ers, and this grand country will be sober for all time. THE WEEKLY WAR REVIEW ORDER NOT RESCINDED Heatless Monday to Be Continued Indefinitely. Washington, Feb. 6. Following a conference between Secretary Mc- Adoo and Fuel Administrator Gar- field, it was announced that the work less Monday would be continued. Un less later conferences develop a change in attitude, the "heatless Mon day" may go to the full stretch of 10 weeks before It Is stopped. Every kind of pressure had been brought to bear upon Fuel Administra tor Garfield to force a lifting of the workless Monday order, and until the last siege of cero weather It was ex pected that the fuel administration would acqute&ce In rescinding the or der. This outcome was largely the re sult of the demand of the 13 state fuel administrators, who have been In conference for several days with Garfield. These men, who have been in charge of administering the work- less day order, still Insisted that the saving in fuel and the assistance it rendered to the overworked railroads Justified Its continuance. With this backing Dr. Garfield held to his posi tion not to lift his workless day order. For tho first time since coal began to run short, fuel administration ofll cials admit that the situation is alarming. Report after report came telling of cities all the way from the Mississippi to the Atlantic with but few hours' supply of fuel on hand pd prospects poor for obtaining any- hln; like the quantities needed. FIRE DEPARTMENT BEING KEPT ON RUN The fire department was called to the Standard office abut 8:30 o'clock this morning, when a gasoline ex plosion caused a small blaze, damag ing the wood work in the basement to a slight extent. The fire was 'ex tinguished before the arrival of tue department. Through the adoption of drastic measures by the military authorities the striko movement, which has agi tated Germany for a week, appears to be on the wane. The most serious disturbances oc curred In Berlin, where crowds got out of hand, overturned streetcars. In terfered with workers who had kept to their employment and frequently collided with the police. The latter charged with drawn sabers and 30 strikers and many onlookers were wounded. At Sprandau, an Import ant suburb, there were similar disor ders and a mob is reported to have attacked soldier guards. The strikers are demanding wage increases, better working conditions and peace without annexations or In demnities. Developments In connection with the Brest-Litovsk peace negotiations were virtually nil the past week. It was revealed, however, that the Ger mans are determined to keep Bolsho vlkl agitators out of Poland, permis sion having been refused Russian del egates to Brest-Litovsk to visit War- taw. A request for the repatriation of Polish troops in the Russian army also has been met with a negative response. In the Ukraine, the Bolsoevikl seem to have gained the ascendancy through their capture of Kiev, insur ing the authority of the Bolshevikl rada. A revolutionary government is reported to have been sot up by the victors. The Bolshevik! also have cap tured Odessa, an Important Russian port on tne Black sea. The Finnish white guard Is said tc have gained control over the north ern section of Finland. Reinforce ments sent by the Petrograd govern ment have arrived at Viborg. The revolutionists, known as the red guard, still hold Helsingfors, the cap ital. Berlin newspapers claim that Ger man submarines sunk 9,000,000 tons of allied and neutral shipping during the first year of ruthless U-boat war fare. Sir Eric Geddes, first lord ot the British admiralty, challenges this claim, asserting that the submarine is now held. To bring about the com plete defeat of the U-boats soon it is necessary to nave ships and more ships, he said. A Paris dispatch, dated Feb. 3, re ported an artillery duel between Ger mans and American forces occupying a sector in Lorraine. Two Americans were killed and nine wounded durlug the bombardment The American fire wrecked many of the enemy dugouts. Enemy airmen bombed Venice and other towns on the Venetian plain, according to a Rome dispatch of Feb. 5. While no damage and no casual ties resulted from the attack on jVenlce, considerable destruction was wrought in the towns of Padua, Tre Tieo and Mestre, where also a num ber of civilians were killed or wounded. , London announced, Feb. 6, that the British carrid out successful raids against the Teutons southwest of Armentieres and in the vicinity of the Ypres Staden railway, where many of the enemy were killed and others captured.

WAR SAVINGS 8TAMP8 SOLVING THE LABOR PROBLEM CAMP SHERMAN BOYS READY Of one thing we may be sure. Labor will not be plentiful in 1918. Nor will it oe cneap. un tue otner Band crop prices arc bound to be high next year because there will be an active demand for everything we can possibly produce. There is a real opportunity next seaton for the forehanded man; the man who gets in the game early, the man who gets his supplies of fertilizers and seeds while the getting is good, the man who is prepared for every eventuality, the man who uses what labor be has to the best advantage and uses it only to grow- good crops. For this sort of farmer America holds forth a promise as never before. For Peter Tumbledown the prospects are a little worse than usual, which means that thev are worse than nothing. A BIBLE WAR BREAD RECIPE The machinery by which the pur chase of a Thrift Stamp or a War Savings Stamp is to be made as easy and convenient as the purchase of a spool f thread or a ound of nails, In every community In the United States is rapidly being established.

FOR SHIPYARD WORK Cox Calls Upon Ohio Mechanics to Register. Columbus, Feb. 6. Governor Cox Issued a proclamation calling upon Ohio mechanics to register for war shipbuilding work. "Upon the r- iponse to the call rests the fate of our army In France and our allies," said Cox. "It Is necessary to enroll 250,000 artisans and skilled mechanics In the shipyards. The state of Ohio, through the Ohio branch, council of national defense, has promised full co-operation with the United States shipping board and the department of labor. The plan In Ohio is to en roll mechanics for shipyard work to be called later." The sixth annual farmers' week was held at the Ohio State University at Co lumbus last week. Approximately three thousand persons were in attendance de spite the shortage of farm labor and un certain train service. Those from Mer cer county to attend were H. C. and Lewis Botton, of Mendon, and Benjamin Kermis and V. L. Slabaugh; of Celina. Chlllicothe, O., Feb. 6. Camp Sher man boys may soon see overseas ser vice. A call upon Ohio ana western Pennsylvania selects has gone out Volunteers to the number of 6,000 axe asked for. Five thousands of these will be the first comparatively large- sized body of Camp Sherman troops bo be assured active duty in France. It is not permissible to say how soon the men will leave nor give oth er details, save that they will go be fore the division moves and that they more than likely will be on their way before the end of February. Of the 6,000 volunteers, 1,000 are wanted for other camps. Five hun dred machinists are to go to Camp Grant, Rockford, 111. The call aske also for 53 motor truck men, who are to be sent to Fort Myer, Va; 64 ma chinists to go to Camp Dix, Washing ton, and 13 plumbers and laborers to go to the same place; four statisti cians and tool designers to go to the Watertown (N. Y.) arsenal; 100 bak ers to go to some quartermabtei school yet to be named, and a gun designer to report to the chief signal officer at Washington. Officers say the asking for volun teers is superfluous. They assert the Ohio selects are so anxious to get to France that there will be so many volunteers It will be necessary to pick the men from Tolunteers. Officers here who have had cavalry experience stand an excellent chance of getting back into that branch of (service through transfer to the new regiments that are to be formed for overseas, as announced last week by the war department. The war depart ment has asked for a list of names of eligible men. Fred Hufford and William A. Gour- ley of Marietta did not sell their places in the Raiabow division to "German spies' it was officially an nounced. The two were arrested re cently and now are held here as de serters. According to word by way of Washington from General Per shing, a check of the men shows that Hufford and Gourley left the Rainbow division at an eastern port of em barkation on Oct 13 without required passes. They were formally charged with desertion Dec. 12. The ninth verse of the fourth chapter ot tzekiel reads as follows: "Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and mullet and put them in one vessel, and make, thee bread thereof." In the thirteenth century David Kim chi, the commentator, wrote: "The prophet thus warns the dis obedient children of Israel that, dur ing the siege of Jerusalem, they will not longer be able to make their bread with pure wheat, but they will have to mix it with all kinds of grain and vegetables with which flour is not made, unless extreme need makes it necessary to do so." War bread in Europe is now made ac cording to the recipe of Ezekiel. But it is not baked with the same kind of fuel, For particulars see Ezekiel 4:12. Ex change. GET WAR OUT OF Ohio State Journal. What will we do with our military training so much talked about if the re sult of the war will be an international league of peace? Such a league is based upon the idea that there shall be no more war, and that the conditions are arranged to secure that result. Arma ment would be a menace to that peace, and so would universal military training. We want to banish war troui national ideals completely. We want the peace spirit so strong as to exclude the possi bility of war. Of course, the human na ture fellows will pop up and say such an idea is absurd; that it is a prime tenden cy of human nature to fight. But such people will have to be derided when we base international relations upon the permanency of peace. That is what the war is for. We want to get war out of the human system.
