Ite 11} In to a suggestion by James Hogg. M. 1*. tor Edinburgh in tlie house of commons, that a trained journalist be put in charge ot the censorship, the premier t-aid: I he government and military au thorities recognize the strain placed on the ^ib.ie by tlie scarcity of infor mation from tli.' front amt they will do all in their power to relieve it." The premier explained that the of ficial press bureau has access for consultative purposes to Karl Kitch ener. secretary of war, and Winston Spencer t'lmrchtll, first lord of the admiralty, and in case of doubt, to the premier. A consultation Between the beads e- the departments and a press com mittee iias resulted in the decision that it was not desirable to add jour nalists to the staff of the bureau, but that they should be associated with the staff of cabie censors. "Steps are being taken,” said the premier, "to carry this out and to co-ordinate and harmonize as far as possible the principles on wJtich the censorship of calnes and other press information respectively is carried out. The difficulty in defining gen eral standards is not believed to be insuperable, tlioiuli it is evidently great. "Every effort will be made to con sult the legitimate expectations oi tho press and public and lo harmonize with these naval and military consid erations.” English papers ltave suffered re cently from the lack of an organiza tion for press supervision in impor tant matters, which all know have been published by some papers while others were forbidden to print them, and editors are beginning to make strong protests personally and by editorials. FRANCE OBJECTS TO BUYING SHIPS WILL LOOK WITH DISPLEASURE UPON THE PURCHASE OF SHIPS OWNED BY GERMANY. Allies Have Swept the Sea and Fears United States Would Be Giving Aid to the Germans. Washington, Aug. L’T. France today expressed to the United States disap proval of certain phases of the admin istration's pian to build up a mer chant marine through the iiurelia.se of foreign ships. .titles .lusserand. (tie French am has sador, had a long talk with President Wilson and indicated, it is under stood, that the French government would view with displeasure ill ■ pur chase liy the United rflatc of a.iy Herman owned ships. The discussion is not teiminated, it being the intention ot the French government further to press its oh joctions. The viewpoint of France i tliat vast sums of money would he trade available for tiie n • ■ 01 the Her mans through the sale of ships which are now marooned in different ports. The French contend, moreover, that is the allies have swept Herman commerce off the seas, the American government wouul he giving re sources for food supplies to normally which she otherwise would not g'st, and which assistance the United States ns a neutral is not obliged to render. President Wilson lias argued that the proposed government ships wouid not carry contraband of war, but tilings distinctly permitted to neu trals as articles of commerce. If (lie establishment of a govern ment shipping line, however, enabled Hermany to feed not only her peopio I,nt her troops in the field, France holds such an operation would be in violation ot neutrality. Aside from the question ot contra band, however, the French govern ment thinks the sale of the marooned Herman ve.-seis to the United States would lie tantamount to raising money through the agency of tile United Stales. After his visit to the white honae, Ambassador .lusserand conferred with officials of the state department and called on Secretary Iianieis of the nav;. department.

Hr. Bcthmaun Holiweg, at the time of the British ultimatum demanding that Germany should cease violation of lie ian neutrality. According t) the official report, Herr Von Jagow deplored the step which Great Hr mm was about to take as ho saw the end of his policy and that of the im pt-rial chancellor, which had been to make friends with Great Britain, and then, through Great Britain, to get closer to France. Similarly the Imperial chancellor was taken aback. He declared that Great Britain’s action was ’‘terrible to a degree,” and declared that hi policy, liy this step, “was tumbled down like a house of cards." He held Great Britain responsible for all the terriide events that might happen and asked if the British government had thought at what price the compact to dell ml Belgium’s neutrality wotnd liave been kept. The French commander in-chief, General Joffre, in a communication to Field Marshal Si-r John French, commander of the British forces, pays high tribute to the valor of the British army, which he says, "did not hesitate but threw its whole strength against forces of great numerical u periority."
