Washington, Mar. S0 The United
States, England and France will Join

ent government plans materialise.
The administration expected to be
gin today the work of Informally ne
gotiating with these nAions. This
probably will 'tie undertaken through
the state department and the British
and French embassies here. ' '
With Its proposed big fleet ot pa
trol boats, plua larger navy vessels,
the I'nlted States will be In a post

off the American coast, while England
and France will be expected to recip

Navy men believe that the submar
ine menace may be brought directly
home; that teata such as the U-5J
performed off Nantucket last sum
mer will be repeated.
Navy and army depart menu are
bussing with preparations. The navy
bears the ibrunt of the work, but
under the surface the army has shap
ed Its plans whereby It can call out
tb national guard anew and also
provide sufficient officers for the
training of a half million men.
The New York navy yard began
work on' forty submarine chasers,
hastily ordered, while tomorrow bids
will be opened for two hundred or
more 110-foot speed boats, available
for coast patrols and submarine
Nothing will be permitted to stand
in the way of hastening navy pre

ng Is needed. It will be undertaken.
Mobilisation of the Atlantic fleet
nd of the naval militia has been

The tenseness of International af

about 37,000 more. Early gradua

INCREASE IN RATES
Washington, Mar 20. Congress,
at the coming extra session, will be
asked to pass a law granting Increas
ed freight rates and passenger rates
to the railroads to reimburse them
for Increased wages they will be com
pelled to pay under , the Adamson
eight-hour law, prominent railroad
heads and officials of the Interstate
commerce commission told the United
"Since the supreme court has de
cided that congress has the plenary
power to fix wages for the trainmen,
then applying the same rnle It has the
right to legislate railroad rates," a
prominent government official said.
The fact that congress can dispose
of the Increased rate problem In a
more speedy and satisfactory manner
than the Interstate commerce commis
sion, Is said to be the reason why
the matter wilt bo put up to congress.
The eight-hour commission treated
by the Adamson act to Investigate
the effect of the eight-hour law on
the railroads Is powerless to grant In
creased rates. The only power this
commission has Is to determine how
much the railroads will have to pay
out In increased wages and the gen
eral effect that It will have on the
This commission, consisting of Gen
eral Goethals, George 11. Ru'blce and
Edgar E. Clark, the latter a member
of the Interstate commerce commis
sion, has been actively at work since
the first ot January, when the Adam
son law became effective, but as op
eration of the law was Interfered

The tiger-like onslaught which the
French are making n the German
rear Is partly explained by the fart
that ever since the Bom me offensive
the French have known that a re
treat has been under preparation.
The Somme offensive of last fall con
vinced the Germans of their Inability
to wlthstsnd another such attack
from the allies, especially If that of
fensive wss to be resumed on a more
extended front this spring.
Therefore, the Germans begsn con
struction of a new line of retreat
now known as the Htndenburg line.
It runs south from Arras, past San
Quentln and re-Joln the old front
in the vicinity of Solssons. On these
new defenses the Germans forced the
French civil population to work
French raids during the past three
weeks demonstrated that the Qer
mans were gradually withdrawing.
The French tried to engage the ene

fused to fight, stsrtlng a retirement.
Forearmed by their advance infor
mation, the French immediately
launched a pursuit with a great con
centration ot men and materials
exactly the soil of a concerted drive
which the Germans had hoped to
avoid In abandoning their positions.
Returning refugees, who were
forced by the Teutons to work on
the new defense on the Hindenburg
line, stated today that the Germans
hoped by shortening their lines on
the western front to release thirty
divisions of men for strategy else
