1 Vi iB:- *&GE TWO. t-V Sa3&l§ fr Hi I 3® I Hi 1 ]/il| 1/ is IS RESPONSIBLE -•mi New Angle of British Condi |i tions Comes to Front in Present Crisis. (By Philip Everett.) Liondon. April 20.—The best proof that a large part of Englishmen have not yet realized the enormous istsues that arc at stake In the present war is the undeniable fact that Great Urit ain is actually passing through a syn dicalist crisis of the most serious kind. All the world knows of the labor dif ficulties that have time ami again arisen in various parts of the country and which finally necessitated a speech of characteristic liluntncss by Lord Kitchener in the house or lords some time ago. Greedy capitalists must bear their share of the disgrace. The psychological side of this sub ject is an interesting one. The work ingmen. who have acted sullenly or •worse, openly complain that they are required to make an enormous effort which Bhould not go unrewarded when the employers arc piling up money tht-ougli government contracts. Many workers are feeling disgruntled in the knowledge that a considerable part of the stock of the companies they are working for is owned by Germans and Austrians, whose profits are taken by t.he British government to be handed them in a lump sum after the war. It is perhaps not strange that com mon workingmen do not understand that this is absolutely necessary. The employers, on their side, argue that if their profits are large, so is their, risk,. an.d that, as a matter fact, they are only making up for losses which thoy suffered during the period which preceded the war. Liqttd Kitchener's speech had a great effect and things are undeniably go ing better, but everything Is far from being well, and there are many here who think that the only way out of the quagmire is to grant the govern ment similar dictorial powers as those possessed by the government of France. These people maintain that the welfare of the country demands that the government, so to speak, should mobilize employers and work ers, placing the works and capital of the former under the control of the state and command the workers to work a-eertain number of hours a day as long as the emergency calls for it. TJnder this arrangement capital should be guaranteed a certain reasonable rate of interest, while suitable allow ance should be made for wear and tear. French Press TMscussc* Subject. In the eyes of the Belgians and Frenchmen, it is quite incomprehensi ble that such a thing has not been done long ago, and in the French press 1 have repeatedly seen the opin ion expressed that the liberal party, which now by common consent gov erns the country without opposition, must act as present circumstances urgently demand. Later there will be plenty of time to take up once more the discussion of individual freedom and chimerical equality. The question has also been taken tip in the British press, and not very long ago. a conservative London pa per told its headers that there is prac tically no limit to what the. military authorities m^ d° under the dgfens'e While men have bren growling* JMpainst conditions which do not suit them, England has every reason to be proud of her women, nay even of her suffragettes, who have undoubtedly never done more to win public sym pathy for their cause than when they decided to drop their agitation until after the war. As for the ordinary women with no political aspirations, they have from the very beginning of the war given splendid proofs of their pa 21?*. No one knows how manv JBritish women have gone to the front risking their health and their lives as nurses, not only with the British ar mies in Flanders and France, but also a and Montenegro, where their services are even more urgently need ed and where the privations they suf rer surpass all imagination.

It is of the mortar type and shoots at high angle to carry large shot a long distance over hills when the enemy cannot be seen. And Rumania, it will be observed, has remained neutral, and never was more neutral than it is in these clos ing days of march. The assembling and swift forward ing of the freight cars was a master stroke not only of economics but of diplomacy on the part of the govern ment railway management. Its value cannot be overestimated. Food Plentiful anil Cheap. Other uspects of the food situation in Germany cannot be more'tellingly nor more truthfully summed Up than 1-iy the crude but exact statement that at any time anywhere a man can eat more than is good for him for a mane and a half. For that sum ("7 1-2 cents) he gets an excellent soup, a liberal portion of Jihine salmon or some other fresh wa ter fish, with potatoes roast meat garnished with potatoes, beans and peae, and a large slice' of Holland or Swiss cheese with bread, or, if he does not care for cheese, a Jelly omelet or an orange, So much for,. 37 Hnierarrf?nl!r W*n*'fcjr"'Or L,*\mericA. jt -wo»W,, coet is** 1 -3 tents ment-tn others. ... extra. ^»e- or dinary light beer Is 6 cents foria^Srge glass. All the dishes are well prepared. Of course, you can, as in any coun try, squander money on your food in Germany in war time, but you would have hard work to run }ip such a bill for dinner as the habittie of the best restaurants in New Yorlt and Chicago pays without a qualm. Small Householders Affected.' Undeniably prices of some kinds of food have increased and it likewise is undeniable that the small household ers feel the increase- The sole dif ference between America and Ger many in this respect is that in Amer ica the amall. householder feels it all the time and complains bitterly, while in Germany the small householder feels it in war time and complains lit tle. As for the sojourner in this land, he reads the "Food Panic in German' dispatches in his English and Ameri can newspapers and wonders whence his next meal is coming. Then he goes into the "beer lokal" of hie ho tel in a town like Aachen, which is only a few minutes' ride from.the Bel gian border, and eats and drinks for an hour at an outlay of 50 cents. Sunday before last the new Amer ican consul at Aachen, Henry Damm, rode over to Koln for a day's outing. Koln is a city of .over 500,000 popula tion and it.-is full of soldiers. It' ought to feel the pinch of war prices more thaii any other town in the Rhine pro vince I saw the consul the day aft er his return. "Did you have a good time?" I ask ed. "Yes," said he, "though of course my privations were isomething to tell about.'' "For example?" Wiiat (12 Cents Will Buy. "Well, three of us consular people went to the best hotel in town and had a Sunday dinner of soup, fish with po tatoes, a meat course with vegetables, pheasant with salad, and ices, and the bill was two mark? fifty for each of us." Two marks fifty equals 62 1.-3 cents. In America, pheasant is so expensive that I believe it is considered a epe cial luxury. Other "sidelights of this alleged food panic in -Germany I receive almost daily when I go to the postpfflce to send a telegram or register a letter or get a parcel "weighed. At the weighing windows one'has to stand in line 10 minutes because so many people have'.come.'td.'have packages of delicacies for the soldiers weighed. Girls who are 'sending sweetmeats.and cakes to their lovers at the front, mat rons wljo are sending more substantial delicacies to their hoys, are lri line, and it is a line that is hardly broken all day' long. But, to come down to brass tacks, I made out a lUt of some:of. the prime necessities of life and went 'over It with' one housekeeper in Aachen and with the proprietor''of the Hotel Kaie erhof. The hotelkeeper and the householder agreed as to the correct ness of the list whefn we had finished with it. Here are the facts It con tains: For potatoes, which under normal conditions cost $1.12 1-2 a hundred weight at this time, of the year, the hotelkeeper now pays $1.25 to $1.50, the latter price for the. best quality. The small householder, however, who buys from the green grocers in small lots has to pay from 2 1-4 to 3 cents a. pound, where. In.

Aaclien, Germany, .March 26.— For ty thousand freight care kept Jtu mania out of the war. Jt may have been, and it may still be, that there is a pro-Russ war par Well, we have grain and oil, and not much else, to sell, and here are the cars for its transportation. Why, then, should not Kumania be neu tral ty. For the small buyer, therefore, the price of potatoes has more than doubled. The municipality of Aachen, how ever, is selling potatoes to the people ty in Kumania. Jt may even be that! at the same rate the wholesalers the majority of the class of people, charge the large buyers, but it cannot who have relatively little to lose by at present sell in small lots owing to ur were, if nut for war, at least noti the large .number of salespeople and against war'. But when 40.UH0 German freight cars came trundling over the Rumani an border to take grain back to Ger many, the merchant class of Rumania, said: I the amount of clerical help that re tailing would require. I That the ftotelkeepers are not fear ing a shortage of potatoes is indicated by the fact that with every fish and meat course they serve more potatoes than anybody really wants. It is said that the Koln potatoes can be bought in small lots for 1 1-8 cents a pound, but I have not verified that statement. Bread Costs 1 1-4 Cent More. Bread is 1-4 cents more a pound than in ordinary times and contains 1!0 per cent of potato flour. Butter is usually :i5 cents a pound at this time of the year. Now it costs J!7 1-2 cents in large lots and 43 3-4 cents in small quantities. Eggs—-No material increase in price for the best quality, but the cheaper brands, for which tne less prosperous people used to pay 2 cents apiece, now cost'3 cents apiece. Germany used to import great quantities of the cheaper cooking eggs from Italy, but Italy, with food problems of her own on her inind, is ceasing to export eggs. Bee-f—No increase in price. Poultry—No increase in price. Pork (including the pork products of bacon and sausage) shows an in crease of at least one-sixth in price. The quality of bacon that used to cost SO cents a pound now costs 5 cents more a pound. Rice—One-third increase in price. 'Peas—One-third increase in price. Beans—One-third increase in price. Sugar—Increase of a few pfennigs per pound. Salt—No increase in price. Oranges—No Increase in price, Ijemons—No increase in price. Ladyfingers (cakes)—Were 30 cents a pound now 50 cents or less a pound.' As to fuel and lluminants: Coal—Same price as in usual times. Also coke. Gas—No increase in price. Electricity—No increase In price. Candles—Expensive, as always, and cost a cent and a quarter a pound more. Petroleum—Supply is short and the dealers are permitted to sell only half as much as in peace times. Some days It is Impossible to get petroleum. Sale in small quantities Is the rule. Beer Supply Undiminished. There are some curious cpntradlc* tions in the prices of the luxury foods. A whole lobster served in a hotel res taurant costs $1.50, and yet in the same restaurant one order of delicious lobster mayonnaise—quite enough (oj, two. persons—costs only 37 1-2 cents and you get a bigger order of It than you. do of chicken salad in Field's tea-! room for 66 or 75 cents. The wines of the country continue' to be cheap, plentiful and good. ..' There is an undiminished Niagara of beer. WERE EXECUTED MEN INNOCENT? Paris, April 21.—What might have been a terrible miscarriage of justice was set to rights by the appeal court when a sentence of death, passed on a soldier, Jul** Arris, at Verdun in September last, and later commuted to 20 years* penal servitude, was def initely quashed. Pour soldlres. among them Arris, were Condemned to death for having abandoned their posts before the enemy. They were further charged with willful self-wounding. Three of the soldiers were shot. The fourth, Arris, owing to the severity of the in jury, wa« taken, to a hospital and there tended. The court martial had come to the conclusion that his Injury had been caused by a blank cartridge, being fortified in this oninion by the fact that no hole In the wounded man's regimental overcoat could be discover ed. But the doctor who treated Arris In the hospital discovered in the wound an unmistakable German shrapnel bullet.

Washington, April 21—From an au thority so high In the German coun cils as to. be unimpeachable it can be stated that the letter from Dr. Bern hard Dernburg, read before a mass meeting at Portland, Me., Saturday night, accurately represents the views of the German government on the question of peace terms. While this is so, the same authority states that lr. Dernburg wrote his letter solely upon his own responsibility and not in any sense as a representative of the German government. Hold Title to Belgium. "They ask us to get' out of Bel gium," said the authority herein quoted. "Two ways remain to get us out. One is to remove us by force and the other is to offer us an induce ment sufficient to cause us to get out voluntarily. Removal by ejection has been tried and has been a failure and will continue to be a failure. We are there. We hold the country. We are building up its Industries. We are administering its government fairly and for the well being of all the Bel gians/- We possess "lie country as the fruits of war.

But if these advantages are to be made permanent the attabk musf.be carried oft with almost super human energy until Constantinople shall have been taken. Germans of optimistic tendencies still retain hope that the Turkish forts, armed with guns made by Krupp and commanded by German artillery officers, may be able to sink so many allied ships that, the attempt will be given up.i Sober-minded ob servers, however, do not count on this, for a failure In the Dardanelles would mean a loss to the prestige of the Franco-British nivles. England and France simply cannot withdraw now, and on the Other'side the forcing of the Dardanelles may bring the end of the war. The fo ment the straits have become open to the passage of merchant vessels Russia will be at liberty to export the enormous quantities of wheat now stored in southern Russia, and, what is more Important still, she will be able to import all the munitioner of war she needs. Rumors From Italy. German secret agents in Russia who are still freely crossing the German frontier have long reported that there is a serious shortage of rifles, guns and ammunition In Russia, which may at any time bring about the col lapse of the czar'S armies. With the Dardanelles open Germany must be prepared to face new millions of Rus sian fighters, now concentrated and drilled, who will roll forward like a mighty wave the moment they' are armed. Compared to this It means practi cally nothing to Germany that the fall of Constantinople sounds the d,eatli knell of Turkish rule in Europe. Po litically, however, this will be of the greatest importance, for immediately the question will arise, "Who is to hold Constantinople?" Russia, Bulga ria and Greece will each come for ward with claims, but we are told that London and Paris favor neither of these three countries and that I/ondon .will never permit a permanent Rus sian occupation of Constantinople. But It is yet too early to sell the skin of the bear. It is a long way T,ronLth.e middle of the Dardanelles to the-Turkish capital, and thfe'tvay as* narrow and difficult as it is long. From, Italy come rumors persistent ly stating that an agreement has been reached between the powers of the triple entente that Constantinople is to be made an international city un der a British, French and Russian protectorate, and that there is to be an end to the dream of Greece and Bul garia.

President Polncare and Sir Edward Grey both stated that after the war the Mediterranean, the Red sea, the Black sea and the Adriatic would be declared international waters. Garibaldi also touched upon the question of the war indemnity.

London, April 20.—A private now In the hospital describes as follows how half a- battalion of his regiment recap tured at heavy cost trenches which had been taken by the Germans: "Am in England once more. How I have survived the last six weeks I hardly know myself, tout the main point is that I am here and very con tented, and ought to toe, too. I am a lucky fellow to' have got through. Not a chum of mine in that company sur vlved that charge,.' Up to then none of our. little clique from Sheerness had received a scratch.' "The Germans had captured 800 yards of trenches. Some 6,000 men were massed in the early hours of the' morning for the counter-attack. About 5 o'clock orders came through can celing this, and the various battalions started back. This went on till the third battalion, IC R. R.'s, was left. Fresh orders arrived that the trenches must be taken and at all cost. There waa only four battalion left to carry out these orders,, weakened by heavy losses to only-half strength,. 500 men,' and it was already light In the east when we advanced to the attack. Charge Was Madness. "Our company, 126 strong, had to attack a 300-yard stretch of trenches,. protected by barbed wire and a ma chine gun and occupied by about 300 Germans, and it was rapidly getting' light. It was madness. I said my prayers and crawled,forward with the reat. We covered-about 30 yards' all right. Then came the rattle of a machine gun and the crackle of rifle fire. 'Charge!', shouted the captain and, making enough noise for a thou sand, we charged. It was only an eight-second rush to the low 'bank Jn front of the trenches where we could have a breather, but two men dropped for ^very one ^rho got there. The machine gun. wjped. out two or three men at once in rows. "My feelings I wonder at now. Men' were falling like flies. Everybody but me seemed to toe hit. I was filled with an intense curiosity as to where I should toe hit tohd what It would feel like. I'felt two' sharp tugs at my coat skirts, and a second-later a crash and a heavy thud on my right side. "'I am hit,* I'thought, and stag gered the last five yards and threw myself down bfefore the bank. I look ed to my rights—gone my platoon lieu tenant, sergeant, corporal—just an odd man here and'there left. On the left the same fate. Behind the moet awful chrieks and groans. Six Enter the Trench. 'Charge!' came the cry again, and with terrible fierceness our little hand ful dashed across the 80-yard stretch straight for the gaps In the wire. In cluding the captain, 28 men reached those four trenches. I a'nd five others went into a trench like six fiends. The Germans were pouring out of the back like rabbits. "It was the light that saved us. They must have thought half the army was charging them. We jumped over the parapet .and eight of them showed fight and 'paid. The remainder, 10 men, threw down their arms and grov eled for' mercy. It was a' pitiful-Bight. Still they were Only ladB-fronta'18 to "We took 40 odd. prisoners ,!n the four trenches, and within live, minutes they were marched off with an "escort of only two men.
