Germans, just captured in the British advance, are nut to work aid ing in the rescue of the wounded men in the dugouts. Treatment was so urgent in many cases that the doctors ' went down into the dugoutsbandage d the men there, then placed them on ; stretchers to be hauled up by the w indlass. ORIS COHMITTEE OF NAVY LEAS MACKIN 1 Machines to Be Tried Out at OE PU Practical Will Be Installed All Over the Country- Will Curtail Home Knitting to Great Extent and Permit Greater Number To keep pace with the demand for ; woolen socks for sailors and soldiers, the Comforts Committee of the Navy League has placed an initial order for ten sock knitting machines, which will 'be installed in the Washington head ! quarters. These, machines will turn outin an hour a pair of knitted socks i which require the mort expert worker I two days to make by hand. Ordinar ! ily from four to seven days are spent in making one pair of socks. The 'Comforts Committee lias found it im possible to supply all of the requests !for socks and has decided, therefore, ; to suppliment with machines the 'jwork of the thousands of women 'now 'engaged in kitting socks. If the ma chines prove successful they will be 'installed in ComSorts Committee of fices as quickly as they can be bought. At the present time women come jto the Navy League shops, ay wool, land take it home with them to make 'the garments. Henceforth, when they come to the Washington shop, they will be told that Jf they desire, their MISS HINDENBURG SAYS SAVIOUR HELPS GERMANS Kaiser Wilhelm has found a . worthy supporter of his "Me und : Gott" idea in the person of Praulein ! Elsie von Hindenburg, a daughter of I Field Marshal von Hindenburg. Probably in order to cheer the ' weakening forces of the Fatherland, ! this imaginative lady sent her Christ , mas greetings to the soldiers fighting I under her father in the form of a ' poem which elects Jesus a corporal ; in -the German army. - The poem was received in America by a member ot the Friends of Ger man Democracy, a society organized ' to aid the German people to establish a government responsible to the peo ple. Here are two of the most striking ' stanzas of the poem, freely trans lated: , Christ Jesus gave His life for me, ' From every debt I am now free. , He has procured His Father's favor, ' He has become my gracious Saviour. He lo! the bayonet thrust gives vigor, The joy to aim, to pull the trigger, My aid Is Jesus, that I know On to the foe, on to the foe! . GOVERNMENT TO ASSUME CONTROL OF MEAT PACKERS Washington, Jan. 24 Hearings be fore the President's Mediation Com- : mission, endeavoring to settle differ ences between meat packers and em ployes, were continued yesterday. It i was indicated the workers would not drop their proposal to have the gov ernment take over plants for the war. John Fitzpatrirk, president of the Chicago Federation of Labor, heading the union delegation, who fade the proposal to President Wilson, is to meet Secretary Wilson and the com- mission again today. Although the President has said he Relieved every method of mediation rhould be tried before government control is considered, Frank P. Walsh, counsel for the men, said the idea would not be-- dropped. - Attorneys for the packers showed strong opposition to the plan, insist ing they were co-operating with the government. James J. Condon inti . mated the men's request was not con sidered seriously. Each side charges bad faith in liv ing up to the arbitration agreement on wages, working conditions and union affiliations made a month ago, when a strike was impending. MAKING FOOD SURVEY.

GERMANS FROM WITH A WINDLASS URCHASES KNITTING ES FOR HEADQUARTERS Washington Branch and If of Socks and Sweaters. wool will be put on the maenmes for them and their socks for the fighting men will be provided just that much quicker. Machine knitted garment; it is true, are not quite so good as those made by hand. It is said that the hand kr1tted onos will last three times as long as those made by ma chines, but at the present moment. with thousands of v.ien in need of socks, it is obviously not expedient to try too much for quality. Quantity production is the thing most neces sary. Moreover, the machine made socks aret in standard sizes and are generally quite satisfactory to the men. Workers are now being trained for the Comforts Committee to operate the knitting machines. For the pres ent the work will only be done ii Washington, but any women not liv ing in Washington ca,n send either wool or money in payment for wool to the Washington office of the Com forts Committee, 1416 H Street, and socks will be knitted on the machines for their order. WOMEN TO VOTE AT NEW YORK'S EXTRA ELECTION Albany, Jan. 24 Date for the elec tion of four congressmen to fill vacan cies will be announced today by Gov. Whitman. Women will vote in these elections for the first time in the state.

Kesiiio! iDUKHONIN'S DEATH DESCRIBED BY A CORRESPONDENT Eye Witness Tells of Trag edy in Graphic Manner Corpse Pelted With Mud Paris, Jan. 24 (A vivid picture of the circumstances! of the murder, by infuriated Bolsheviki,' of General Duk- honin, formerly commander-in-chief f the Russian army, is given bv the Petrograd correspondent of the Ma tin, who apparently was an eye-wit ness or tne tragedy. According to his story Elnsign Krylenko, the Bolshev- iki commander-in-chief, endeavored to save General Dukhonin from the mob but his efforts were unavailing and tne -Kussan commander was struck the Russian commander was struck with a dozen bayonets. The murder took' place after the Bolsheviki had captbred the head quarters of the Russian army at Mo hilev and followed General Dukho nin's refusal to request the German army officials to enter into an armis tice with the Bolsheviki. The Gen eral was on board a train when the mob surrounded him. According to the Matin's correspondent the General appeared at the window of his rail way carriage. "Throw us your, epaulettes!" shrieked the soldiers, "or we'll kill you," and they shouldered their rifles. Krylenko begged- the general to give way to them, but Dukhonin re fused. "They can go to the deuce," he cried. "Let them kill me!" A 'bullet whistled toy, breaking the window, then a second. General Od intzeff went up to Dukhonin and gent ly took off his epaulettes. They were thrown to the mob and were quickly torn to pieces and for a moment he thought he was saved. Then a hand ful of sailors jumped into the car riage. They seized Dukonin 'by the shoulders and pushed him to the end of the coach and then on to the plat form. Krylenko ran after them. The general's appearance caused a great uproar. "Kill him right out"" they cried. "Kerensky and Korniloff got off. Men like him must be killed at once." As the mob pushed closer and closer upon the general, Krylenko stormed and shouted, 'but no one took any no tice. With a single blow the general was struck down by a tall sailor from the rebel cruiser Aurora. Dukhonin got on his feet again once, his face streaming with blood. He tried to speak but a dozen bayonets were run through him, and then blows and kicks were rained upon his body. The soldiers fought for his clothing, tearing it from him. The corpse, stripped bare, was set up against a railway carriage and the mob, laugh ing like madmen, started a gruesome game. Sailors, Red Guards, and sol diers made snow and mud balls and flung them at the general's head. I could not longer look on," writes the Matin's correspondent, ana dashed back into the carriage, where I found Krylenko sitting in a corner, pale as death. 'Look at them,' he said in a whisper. 'There's no nomine- them in now. I and all the rest of us must come to the same end.' " i WOODEN HORSE TRICK TRIED BY HON HYPOCRITES London, Jan. 24 The Dutch Cath olic journal Tyd prints an article re ceived through an indirect channel from its correspondent in Germany in which he says that "events in Brest-Litovsk and President Wilson's new peace formula which in wide circles is regarded as a suitable basis for the regulation of society of the future, have prepared the ground for the Bolshevik tendency." "It is recognized in educated cir cles," says the writer, "that the wooden horse has been brought in at Brest-Litovsk and there is anxiety lest the German attitude in the nego tiations may lead to-a division among the people. The masses turn away from the veiled annexationist lust of power formulated by Gen. Hoffman." Continuing, the writer speaks of the rebellious temper of the factory pop ulation in the industrial centers and adds: "No wonder fear is expressed here and there that the people are disgusted with the postponed suf frage reforms, furious with the Pan Germans, exhausted in body and for tune, and deprived of the hope of the restoration of national and individual happiness will itself take the settle ment of its lot into their own hands if any great military setback is suf fered. "It is in such an atmosphere if re ports quoted are accurate, that Chan cellor von Hertling meets the reich stag to speak to his own countrymen and the world. His newspaper sup porters say " the chancellor is in no wise shaken by the recent political cricis, but on the contrary.he has the emperor's full confidence." NUMBER OF MILL HANDS ARE IDLE IN PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh, Jan. 24.

Efforts of the German censorship to prevent public knowledge of the Austrian strikes and peace demands succeded for a time, but the news leaked through gradually and Aus trian events seem now to be widely known by German workers. The Austrian hope that the latter would follow their lead has not, however, materialized while German news papers which ventured to hold out a hand to the Austrian proletariat have been sternly repressed. Nevertheless, according to the Post's Amsterdam dispatches, the rebellious sentiments of German workmen, especially Inde pendent Socialists, are becoming stranger. This is partly attributable Fto the attitude of the German dele gates at the Brest-Litovsk conference, which caused widespread discontent as was manifested by the tumultuous scenes at numerous meetings of the Fatherland party.
