Ill s 3,500 GERMAN WAR Officers and Men From the Vessels Interned at the Beginning of the War and Men Arrested as Alien Enemies Since the United States Entered the War Are Being Treated in Most Humane Manner. By FREDERICK C. HOWE, United States Commissioner of Immi gration at New York. It has been nearly sixty years sinc the United States has held any prison ers on American soil. And the pris oners of the Civil war were our own people split asunder by the strife over slavery. Already there are approxi mately 3,500 German prisoners in the United States. They are not captives in battle. They have never seen the trenches, but a portion of them were active participants in the war as offi cers and seamen on the German sea raider Prinz Eitel Friedrich, which ventured into Hampton Eoads for coal and supplies in July, 1914. But the great majority of our prisoners of war are officers and sailors, the stewards and employees of the Ger man merchant vessels which were seized by our government immediate ly on the declaration of war and men who are held as suspects who have been arrested in various parts of the country. There were 29 merchant ships which had been in the harbor of New York since September, 1914. They had on board about 1,100 Germans who wee taken from the ships and interned at Ellis island. There were other Ger man ships at Boston, Porto Rico, Pan ama, while over 50 Germans were brought across the Pacific to New York from the harbor of Kiaouchou, captured by the Japanese. Since the outbreak of the war, too, German and Austrian subjects, from bankers to stevedores, have been arrested as alien enemies and placed in temporary de tention at various places throughout the United States awaiting final action by the government. We were new in war methods un prepared for prisoners of war. And whatever the treatment of Germany to American prisoners, the United States determined that German prisoners held here should be treated on the assumption of the president that this was a war not against the German people but against the rulers of Prus sia. Moreover, the great majority of these prisoners were here on a peace ful errand; they had come In theTr ships, of which the greatest of all was the Vaterland, now the Leviathan, and were marooned In American waters. They remained by their ships for nearly three years. But they were trained men. Many or all of them were reservists, identified with the fa therland. The great majority of these prison ers were held for six months at the Ellis island immigration station in New York and on an island in Boston harbor under the jurisdiction, of the United States immigration authorities. The officers and sailors of the Prinz Eitel Friedrich were first taken to Philadelphia and then to Fort Ogle thorpe, Ga. Under the provisions of The Hague tribunal,, agreed to by all the pow ers, prisoners of war- have certain rights. They may not be compelled to work at anything that will con tribute to the military activities of the government. They are to have means of communication with their friends. If they do any industrial work, they are to be paid on the same schedule of wages as that paid to offi cers and soldiers of the same grade In the army. Secretary of Labor Wilson, when confronted with the maintenance and care of 2,000 German subjects placed under his care, many of whom had wives in this country, decided that the United States should set a standard of prison administration in harmony with the disinterested and nonpunitive war aims of America and so humane that our humanity would serve as a means of protection to American sol diers who might become prisoners of war In German camps. Camps Built by Germans. Hot Springs, in the mountains' of North Carolina, was selected as an in ternment cam.p for the interned sea men. It lies far from the sea and nestles in the midst of mountain ranges in western North Carolina. Other war prisoners are Interned at Fort McPherson a'nd Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., where cantonments have been erected similar to those occupied by troops. These camps were built by the Germans under direction of American officers and are surrounded by stock ades, t Relays of officers and seamen were transported from New York and Bos ton to Hot Springs during the summer and early fall months of 1917, and from out the crews of the ships all kinds of mechanicians and artisans were selected. And the. German pris oners were set to work building their own camp. When the work was completed there was nothing for the men to do. There was no provision for activities except such sports as the men themselves might devise. A large number were employed in the kitchen ; they kept the place in order ; some ran the pumping engines ; others looked after the water supply, plumbing ana" - electricitv. L practically all the work inside the amp Is performed by the Germans. PRISONERS OF IN THE UNITED STATES And the Germans have been per mitted to find amusements for them selves. They have developed a life of. their own. They developed it and perfected it until what a few months ago was merely an internment camp has now become a center of every kind of activity. On the river banks a German village was laid out. It is suggestive of Old Heidelberg, the crooked streets of Nurnberg, or some little village in the Black mountains. One almost forgets that one Is in the mountains of North Carolina as he walks along the narrow, crooked streets of this German village, flanked on either side by artistic playhouses built by the men themselves. The houses are not for living in, although ingenious stoves have been built to keep them warm from stones picked up along the riverside. And the houses themselves are made from scraps of lumber, from broken branches of trees, from little pieces of wood. They are shingled with tin cans and are papered within and tinted at very little expense. At the head of the roadway is a miniature Gothic church. Its lines are good; it has pews within it, a pulpit, and all the accessories of a church. But it is merely a play church. Flow ers of all kinds are planted, and in a short time the German village was a flower garden. And when this work was completed the men who had con structed these buildings organized classes for study. One of these houses is an artist's studio; two or three are cabinetmaking shops. Some old men are weaving. They are plying all the trades that they learned in their idle hours on shipboard. Wonderful mo saic work made out of cigar boxes Is turned out, as are little ships complete in every detail. Y. M. C. A. Takes Hold. The Young Men's Christian associa tion followed the Germans to Hot Springs, as it has followed our sol diers to their cantonments, and It came with plans for service, with money enough to buy lumber, but no money for labor, and the representative of the Young Men's Christian association called a number of the German sea men together in their camp and asked them if they would be willing to build a Young Men's Christian association building if supplied with material and tools. Immediately the men organized a construction squad. They gave their labor gratuitously. They erected a big building, probably 200 by 150 feet, ar tistically designed, as a clubroom and schoolhouse, and immediately all the classes were filled. Four hundred men were immediately enrolled. The Ger mans produced their own teachers. Classes were established in elementary and advanced English. Other "classes were formed in French and in Span ish. Shorthand, geography, chemistry, marine engineering, and navigation are taught. All day and all evening these classes are at work studying various subjects. Similar rlasses were organized in the officers' detention camp. The Young Men's Christian associa tion has also stationed secretaries and inaugurated work at Fort Oglethorpe and Fort McPherson, Ga., and at Fort Douglas, Utah. They have co-operated heartily with the government and have rendered most valuable serv ice along the lines of work usually car ried on by the association religious, educational, athletic, music, and gar dening. Life is irksome in any camp. The men get what the doctors call the "barbed-wire sickness." It affects men's minds to be kept in an inclosure with nothing to do. That is the most serious complaint. There have been but few attempts to escape, . and the guarding of the prisoners is relatively easy.

CHINESE OFFERS TO HELP Widow Offers Her Services as Stenog rapher, Bookkeeper or Inter preter. Boise City, Idaho. When the wom en of Boise City were being registered for war work, the registrars were in terested to learn that women of all na tionalities were willing to offer their services to the government. A little Chinese widow expressed her willing ness to "go anywhere" as a stenog-, rapher, bookkeeper or private secre tary. "Perhaps there is a position where my knowledge might be of special value to my country," she added mod estly as she registered. "I would be glad to act as interpreter and private secretary should there be some posi tion in the government service where a knowledge of Chinese would be need ed." Mrs. Chin Suo, or Lena Ah Fong, as she is known to her many Boise friends, was graduated from the Boise public schools, graduating' with the second highest honors in her class. She joined the Congregational church of Boise and became so popular that when she was married the church members decorated the church for the event. She has acted as official interpreter for the Boise courts for a number' of years. ALL PUPS NOT WORTHLESS Nero Proves Case to His Master When Latter Comes Home After Dark One Night. Smith Center, Kan. Mrs. Ben But- I ler took a little spindling bull pup to raise. Ben never had any faith in the critter. "He's a splndlin', worthless, mangy cur, and wouldn't even have the sand to bark if some one got in our hen roost," said Ben, with a sarcastic tone in his voice. "Never mind," replied Mrs. Ben, with a knowing smile, "try him out. Give him a chance he's only a pup." Coming home after dark a few nights later, Ben had occasion to go to the hen house to see if all were there. Nero heard the noise. So did Mrs. Ben. "Sick him, Nero," called Mrs. Ben. Nero 'sicked.' He grabbed Mr. Ben and In a few minutes tore his cloth ing to shreds. Then he got a good grip on a leg. Ben got busy. It took the hired man and Mrs. Ben half an hour to pry open the jaws of Nero. Ben has changed his mind. TO GROW A "B0SC0BEL OAK" Oregon Students Plant Acorns From Tree Charles ll Used as Hiding Place. Eugene, Ore. Acorns from the oak tree which King Charles the second used as a hiding place from the Crom well forces were planted on the Uni versity of Oregon campus here and are. expected to produce a second "Bosco bel oak." The story is told that while Charles II. was hiding in the original Boscobel oak owls flew out, frightened by the Cromwell men, and that the king's pursuers, noting this, concluded that they were the first arrivals and had frightened the birds themselves, and so gave up the chase.

(By E. B. HOUSE, Colorado Agricultural College, Fort Collins, Colos) Connecticut places the maintenance of her roads under an officer known as the superintendent of repairs. The state Is divided into ten districts. Each district is under the control of a supervisor of repairs, who is lo cated near the center of his district. Each district is divided into sections, and each section is in charge of a foreman. Under ordinary conditions these foremen work singly and devote V Permanent Road in Connecticut. their entire time to the repair and maintenance of the roads in their section. If an emergency comes, ten or fifteen men are placed under a fore man for repair work. These gangs of workmen are maintained continually and are transferred from place to place; put under one foreman for a few days, and then transferred to an other section in order that the work may be properly done. COMPANY TAKES OVER ROAD Virginia Legislature Grants Charter to Private Concern to Operate Old Highway. The legislature of Virginia has granted a charter to an association known as the Warrenton and Fairfax Turnpike company, Inc., which will take over the old Alexandria-Warren-ton pike, to grade and resurface the road and operate it as a tollroad until the state wishes to take it back. The charter states that when the state does take it back it must pay the stockholders the cost of the road, with interest, minus dividends. IMPROVEMENT BY ROAD DRAG Farmer Can Be Convinced of Effective, ness by Use of Implement After Each Rain. If you are not one of the fortunate ones with a good macadam or even concrete road in front of your place, you can make a good road of it if drainage has been attended to by the use of the road drag. Just try it after each rain, on the stretch of road lead ing from your gateway toward town the length of your holdings; you will not only be surprised and gratified with the Improvement, but you may be encouraging your neighbor just be yond to do likewise. OUTLINES GOOD ROADS PLAN Opening of Forty-Mile Boulevard In Canada First Step in System of Improved Highways. The new concrete highway between Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, was opened recently. The premier of On tario announced at the opening that the 40-mile boulevard between the two cities was only the first step in a great system of improved highways through out the whole of Ontario. Plans have been made for this work, but it will not be undertaken until the actual end of the war is in sight. . GOOD ROADS ARE ESSENTIAL Better Highways Must Be Secured to Make It Possible to Consolidate the Schools. Back of the whole country school problem looms the road question. You can't have better schools withnnt hpt. ter roads. Better roads must be se cured to make it possible to centralize and consolidate the schools- Whpn communities enjoy the advantages of gooa roaas, commodious buildings have been provided, more competent teach ers have been emDloved and mnrtpm facilities for teaching have been snp- pnea at a minimum cost.
