WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.—The trail of
German gold through the field of in
trigue in diplomatic circles; spreading
of sabotage and unrest doctrines in
the labor world and the general mold
ing of public opinion along un-Ameri
can lines was slowly being uncovered
The long arm of the department of
justice was stretched to remote towns
and cities, to villages and hamlets to
demonstrate the extent of the un
American methods which have been
used in the effort to array public sen
timent againts the participation of the
United States in the effort* to crush
German autocracy.
The methods that are being used
are unique. Nothing is being taken
for granted. Men whose names have
appeared on checks seized in raids on
headquarters of agitators; on others
secured by representatives of the in
telligence bureaus of the state, war,
navy and justice departments; and on
others taken from banks in which Ger
man agents maintained deposits are
being interviewed as to the reasons
for the money payments thus repre
Many of these payments are in every
way legitimate. But the department
of justice has reasons to believe that
others were not. And it is to uncover
the latter payments and to reveal the
beneficiaries that the agents of the
department today were working tooth
and nail. The facts already estab
lished which cannot be made public,
show :
That two big banking concerns in
New York City held checking and

Germans tried in vain to stem the

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.- The battle
on the Bainsizzi plateau is not to be
considered finished, according to of
ficial dispatches received here today.
It is only the first phase of battle
which is over, with the result that the
strategic advantage is now on the
Italian side.
New operations are in preparation
and the activity of the artillery is in
tensified every day.
From the Austrian press Rome
learns that following the last visit
of Emperor Charles of Austria along
the Isonzo front considerable changes
in the disposition of Austrian forces
have been made.
Austrian troops in Galicia and Bu
kowina have been withdrawn and
transferred to the Italian front. Aus
trian troops have also been largely
withdrawn from the Russian front
and a new line of Austrian forces has
been established all along the eastern
zone of the Isonzo front and are in
trenched in new lines of fortifications
as a preparation against a new' Italian
From an official source it was
learned today that Italy at present
seems to be paying more attention to
strictly military operations than to
moral successes. The drive toward
Trieste seems more or less to have
been postponed. General Cadorna is
chiefly interested in preparing a plan
of action which will make a new move
of the Italian army weigh effectively
over the whole military situation of
the allies. Austria is realizing what
is in preparation and the withdrawal
of all Austrian troops from the east
ern fronts shows that she is getting
ready against the elements of surprise
which General Cadorna is constantly
employing to his advantage.
LONDON, Oct. 2—Heavy fighting
raged over a wide section of the west
Flanders front during the night, the
Germans directing savage counter at
tacks at numerous points.
All of the assaults were repulsed,
the war office announced today.
An effort by the Germans to re
capture Zonnebeke failed under the
intense gun fire of the British bat
teries and the Germans were rolled
back leaving great mounds of dead
and wounded behind them.
Along the A'pres-Menin road the
Germans launched five powerful
counter attacks, using immense forces
of men, but as often as the waves of
attackers dashed forward, they were
repulsed by the British defenders.
In the Polygon wood district there
was especially violent fighting.
Regardless of the huge losses sus
tained by his army Prince Rupprecht
strove valiantly to wrest this piece of
strategic woodsland from Field Mar

broke down under the gallant machine

Dealers' Profits Too Big
He Avers
Passes Matter Up to State Admin
istrators to See That Consumers
Get Fairly Treated in Buying
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.—Retail coal
prices must drop. Dr. Harry A. Gar
field, coal administrator, meeting a
score of state fuel administrators here
today, gave this order. He warned
the state administrators that there
will be attempts upon the part of the
retail dealers to evade the order of
October 1. reducing retail prices.
Figures were presented by Dr. Gar
field to show that the margin of prof
it. now demanded by dealers, is exorbi
tant. He pointed out that even with
increased labor and production cost«,
the retail price can he materially low
Reports of the federal trade com
mission were presented showing that
coal costs in a score or more of the
leading cities are too great. These
figures, as well as estimates drawn
by the fuel administration were care
fully discussed by the conference and
prices in individual states were taa
en up.
Dr. Garfield explained his plan for
an additional margin of profit of 30
per cent over the profits of 1915. He
declared that state administrators who
find that this plan will reduce coal
prices in their states to a consider
able extent and warned them that It
was their duty to see that the re
ductions were made.
The coal situation in the northwest
was discussed at length. Dr. Gar
field declared that while the situa
tion there at present seems critical
the order issued late last night stop
ping the shipment of coal to Canada
will meet the situation. He declared
that there is a daily shipment of 180,
000 tons of coal from Lake ports. For
months most of this has been going
to Canadian ports. He stated that if
150,000 tons are shipped daily to the
northwest from now until the close of
navigation the shortage in that sec
tion will be taken care of.
While the conference was going on
it appeared that the wage difficulty
in the central competitive area would
force the fuel administration to ad
vance coal prices at the mine in that
region. Miners and operators in con
ference here have reported a tentative
agreement as to a new wage schedule
with the proviso on the part of the
operators that increased wages shall
be granted only if the fuel adminis
tration permits an increase in prices
at the mines. Dr. Garfield has the
matter before him and is discussing it
with state fuel administrators from
the central area.
Tennessee and Kentucky labor trou
bles are settled for the time being at
least. A proposed basis of settlement
of difficulties, set forth by the fuel
administration was substantially rati
fied by the operators at a conference
this morning. The agreement must
still be ratified by the miners, how
ever, meeting at Knoxville, Tenn.,
Herbert C. Hoover, food administra
tor, took a hand in the coal situation
today, when he addressed the state ad
ministrators. He pointed out that the
food situation is largely dependent up
on the coal situation and urged all
state administrators to use drastic
measures to bring coal prices down In
their territories.
