GERMANY, LONDON PAPER SAYS Tremendous Revival of Trade by Teutons Puts England's worm rraae m .rem u-ermans Are under Selling All Nations, Asserted. (Ey I. N. Service.) London, Aug. 13 "Germany Is making the .most of the" greatest industrial opportunity In history. Thanks to hard work, combination ana sKiiirul direction her trade is advancing "by leaps and bounds. Even her shipping industry is booming. The result is that our own world trade is in peril. In every country in the world Germany is underselling Great Britain. Our goods are toeing driven ifrom markets which were almost ex clusively ours." In this manner the Daily Express sums up a leading article on Ger many's astonishing trade revival. Ap pended to it is the following dispatch from the Berlin correspondent of the Express, who has made a special study of the subject: Berlin, July 16 In every country in the world Germany is undersell ing Britain. British goods are being ousted by German competition from markets which were formerly proud to display the trademark, "Made in jiai gland. ' I nave many - vivid impressions of a short, stout man dressed in black. The first time I saw him he was coming down the toroad staircase of Berlin's most fashionable hotel clean ing his finger nails with a jack-knife. I have seen him at other times eating a simple repast of milk and eggs in the public dining room. When he went up in the lift to his room there was a whispered com ment: "There goes Hugo Stinnes forming a new trust," and "Stinnes will have made another million by the time he gets to the third floor." Herr Stinnes. Hugo Stinnes, Germany's industrial dictator, and a group of his fellow magnates, are gradually welding all the coal. iron, steel, chemical, ship ping, banking and paper industries into one vast machine which will capture the world's trade. Stiimes, it was announced recently. controls 1,340 companies, whose cap ital exceeds 72,5UO,UOO,000. He em ploys directly and indirectly a mil lion and a half workmen. There is not one single article in everyday use which is not produced In one of Stinnes" factories. He has built up since the armistice a commercial oc topus far mightier than Hindenburg or Ludendorff ever dreamed of In their wildest fantasies of world con quest. isn(4 WE ANNOUNCE FURTHER REDUCTIONS IN MANY PATTERNS OF HIGH GRADE WALL PAPER Pulp Oatmeals 15c a Single RoU .

A student of economies who re turned recently from the Ru.hr dis trict told me how tho German work' man rises at a quarter to five every morning and puts an hour's work into his garden before going to the factory. In the factory he voluntarily Dinas mmseir to his machine to se cure economy of motion and increased production. Returning 'home at 6 he works until dusk in the garden to economize his expenditure. liesson in Steel. Is it to be wondered that Stinnes and bis fellow magnates can throw into Great Britain m. ton of steel five pounds cheaper than it costs Great Britain to make it? The latest statistics of wages show that the average wge of a German workman is albout seven marks (six pence) an hour. In m,ainy cases this is a hunger wage against which the British manufacturer caranot com pete. Labor costs, therefore, are infinitesimal compared 'to British. This is where .the "cheap mark" plays an important part. There was a significant dispatch from Capetown the other day. It re ported that a German steamer had arrived with merchandise, including textiles, dyes, electrical material, crockery, machinery and toys. The prices juoted were 50 per cent, cheaper than those of exports of a similar nature from Great Britain. Besides Stinnes. the "Big Seven" divide Tip Germany's industries be twen them. They are Klockner, Thvssen, Wolff, Haniel and Kruppe and the Stumm group and PJioenix group. These magnates " or groups control what Stinnes has left of in dustrial Germany. They have factor ies which deal with the raw coal down to the tiny flask of exquisite perfume which .s produced from one of the many by-products of coal tar. The "Big Seven." The "Big Seven" have interests In more than 300 coal, iron, steel, trans port, copper, shipping, chemical, ma- chie. glass, stone ana paper Dull nesses. They employ nearly $7,500, ono 000 in capital. They are forever amalgamating, buying and extending in order to co-ordinate their interests into one powerful whole. They and Stinnes have reacnect sucn a pucn oi development in Germany that they are forced to - seek fresh outlets abroad, and are rapidly acquiring important concerns in Austria and Poland It is the old plan o peaceful pene tration again. . Recently a head waiter In one of the numerous Berlin hotels owned by Stinnes sidled up to me. -tie pro duced from bis trousers pocket a small ' but beautifully polished nickel case with an interior of plush velvet. It contained a well-finished pocket safety razor. eight marks about seven pence if taken in lots of a hundred dozen. Thirty or forty factories controlled by Germany's Industrial magnates are engaged in producing- 2,000,000 of these razors yearly, with 30,000,000 blades to match. Their regular sales men cannot deal with the great out put, and thousands find their way into the hands of middlemen like my head waiter, who comes daily into contact witn -tsntisn tmyers. There are many other samples of P'ncds I have seen produced at prices from one-fourth to one-tenth of those . ruling anywhere else in the world. I was shown a water-tap, such as is in use in every British bathroom and kitchen. It was 40 per cent, brass and 60 per cent, cop per. The export price is 6d. each. It could not be manufactured in Great Britain much iunder three shill ings. Itampihg Trusts. Another sample was an ordinary electric switch which cost three half pence to produce In one of Stinnes' factories. There is little profit at half a crown on a similar product British made. I saw at the same time a patent electric switch with six holes for plugs, so that i'f the wire is fused the switch can be used five times without calling in an electrician. This switch costs seven pence to produce, but thousands will shortly be dumped- on the British market at five shillings each because the wily German busi ness man knows that it can only be manufactured ra.Qermany. Some details of the 1920-1921 shipping, banks and railway reports are available. The port of Bremen has regained nearly 60 per cent, of its pre-war trade. Hamburg has regained over 60 per cent. and. it is estimated, will exceed its pre-war figure in less than is months. Rotterdam cannot com-, pete with Bremen or Copenhagen with Hamburg. Latest reports of Germany's eight greatest banks show an increase of 68,000 depositors, compared with the previous total. The gross profits are 1565,000,000. or S350.000.000 more than in 1919. . The net profits exceed $175,000,000. The German .banks al ways played the most prominent part in Germany's strangle-hold -on the world trade. Finally, Germany's train services are very nearly np to normal. Is labor in allied countries sleep ing while Germany is availing .herself of the most brilliant opportunity in all history?

FAMOUS CALIFORNIA OIL LAND CASE UP TODAY Visalia, Cal., Aug. 12 Acting un. der instructions from President Hard ing, the famous Honolulu Consolidat ed Company Elk Hill land title case was today reopened before Register Ellen and Receiver Ferguson, of the United States Land Oflice here. The suit, which involves title to 4, 880 acre3 of alleged oil-bearing land in Kern County, valued at approxi-: mately $10,000,000, is directed by thet United States Government against the; Buena Vista Land and Development Company, the State of California and Che Honolulu Consolidated Oil Com pany as intervenors. The State claims title under in-: demnity selections mad-e prior to the Taft Withdrawal act of 1909, which; placed the land in Naval Oil Reserve No. 2.

The Hon olulu company claims the right to- : drill for oil und-er Government leaso granted by reason of filings made" prior - to the withdrawal "act. The hearing is to determine whether' or not Sie land is oil bearing. Upon that point rests the decision. ? ; In the first hearing -the State's, claim was not sustained, and the new hearing was granted on petition of the Buena Vista company for a re hearing. It is expected several weeks will be occupied in taking the testi-. mony. WAS BTfTiT;TJ AFTER BREAKING RECORJ Toledo, O., Aug. 15.
