W Sir x w 1 r vm si;A :toKa,7j V"iJ 'H A.'ui CONDITIONS GROW WORSE IOELGIUM Large Increase Reported in the Number of Persons Compelled .to Seek Public Relief. m PRIVATE CHARITIES EXHAUSTED (Correspondence of The Associated Press.) LONDON, '.May 10. A striking ploture of the condition of affaire In Belgium Is given by an article in the Berlin Vor waerts, protesting .against too optlmlatio views in ths German press of the Belgian political, and economic situation. The estraots' of the article as published in London are: "'The' attempt to "gpply ths slogan 'Business as esual' to the present state of things iu Belgium 1 due in part te the Inability of the rsreaera jtn mske the necessary Investigations .there, i We ere told that the boulevards of Brussels are crowded and that great numbers of peo ple occupy the chairs in front of tr i cafes: therefore we deduce that eooial life is going on as usual throughout the country. . , ; , '. ) "But we can correct such a Judgment promptly from the figures of the public relief institution. For sn appreciation of the real economic situation In Brus sels and of ' the ' psychological situation of the; people therera; knowledge of pub lic relief Is more Important than the ap pearance of .the boulevarda - More Demand for .Relief. - "It . is undeniable that in Bruseels the number of burghers forced to fetch their food from onn of the relief centers Is growing. In September the figures were lfl.1 per cent: April 1 they were 28 per cent of the population. "Another point of Importance is the Increasing doarnesa of things. It is an exaggerated view to take that normal conditions are returning to a city where 210,000 people are fed daily by charity. For this purpose orer $12 000 a day is re quired, and this does not provide for the distribution of clothing, relief of unemployed 'and care of children. Pri vate charity Is almost exhausted and voluntary collections produce less and less. "In the Belgian provinces the situation Is about the same. The German authori ties are willing to improve these condi tions, but there are many difficulties. Railway , tariffs are constantly altering, so that business people are unabls to regulate their traffic in the light of knowledge of the coat of transportation. Public telephone communication la not allowed. Business letters are subject to dolay and rigid censorship. Telegrams frequently take three das for delivery. . No Baniaeaa' Improvement. 'Another dtfficuHy -Is the uncertainty into which Industry is thrown by the constant requisition of machinery. The possibility of such requisitioning by the military authorities dos not encourage the setting up of new machines or the maintenance . of ; old ones. The revival of Belgian industry of which many of our newspapers speak amounts to t&ls: A number of businesses sre working two or three day a' week. . "These facts' should' be a warning against exaggerated optimism ..as to amelioration of affairs In Belgium. In j neutral countries such talk can only I have an unfortunate .effect.. . ' "The ifreatest organising genius weuld !not be able to restore the crushed in idUHtrtes of . this mpt ' troubled of all countries by a wave of the hand, or I raise again the courage of a people who areas deeply attached as Germans them seWea tp their political independence." German Submarine Sunk in North Sea by Merchantman BLYTHE. Kngland. May H.-OI M p. nu A Oerman submarine Is reported to have been sunk in the North Sea.

"If the situation develops to that point where It is Impossible o avoid conflict the American people will stand solidly be hind' the government.

Thus far ths British troops, according to Field Marshal Blr John French, have withstood all the German onslaughts, and while at time they have been com pelled to give some ground their counter attacks brought them back to the posi tion from-which-they 'started. However, tills has been costly business, for .the German artillery bombardment has been very severe and counter attacks t are always followed by heavy casualties. Allies Stronger Now. In their attempt of October and Novem ber Isst to rocch Calais, the Germans continued their attacks for sis . weeks. ' but the allied force was much weaker then and the Germans were not la the position of having to meet counter of fensive as they have now to the north of Arras, in the Woevre and at other points along the western front. Of theaa the moat Important Is that In which the French are carrying out from Arras to the point where their line joins the British snd in which they continue to meet with unvarying success. They report again today the capture which the Germans admit of very strongly fortified position end one road St least 1 which the Germans have been using to ! bring up reinforcements to their positions ' near Ia Basse.

THEGATECITYOrTrUW$T RIOTS IN HOME REACH A STAGE OF REVOLUTION Entire City Occupied by Military and Maddened Crowds Cry Out for Nation to Ruth to Fray. PARLIAMENT WINDOWS BROKEN Disturbances Are Also Reported from Milan, Where Fire arms Are Used. NEW MINISTRY IS PRORABLE ROME. Msy 14. (Via Paris.)- Premier Salandra has convoked a council of ministers who sre now meeting to make adecislon relative to the present crisis. ROME, May 14 (Via Paris.) The agttatlen In Rome hss assumed almost ' a revolutionary character. Tho entire city has been occupied by the military. Dispatches from Milan say serious rioting has broken out In that city over the present political situation. The adherents of the opposing polit ical factions hsv resorted to the use of firearms and the situation Is mout grave. Smash Windows. A Boman mob msde Its way this morning to the Passs Montecltorle, where la located the Chamber, of Depu ties, and forced entrance nto the build ing by smashing windows. The belief is growing rapidly that there Inevitably will be formed another Salan dra cabinet, or at least a cabinet which will follow ths same foreign policy ' as the Salandra ministry. The cabinet met today and Immediately thereafter Premier Baland'-a visited the king. No Information waa given out con cerning the meeting of the cabinet, ses sions of which are now being held dally. Trihana'a View. The Tribune, which la regarded as ths organ of former Premier Glollttl. says undoubtedly the cabinet did not take Into consideration that It-was able to command a majority In Parliament only on account of the support given by Signer Glollttl. Owing to this fact the Tribune asserts, flignor Ooltttl Is entitled to be Informed of the progress ef negotiations with the central empires. This paper expresses the hope that same agreement will be reached before the re opening of Parliament, so that the mem ber ef that body may he able to. give united support la the aoVsmment " ' Dispatches from all parts ef Italy set forth that ihe receipt ef the news of the resignation ef the cabinet produced aa extraordinary sensation. Partisans In Rome deduce that a large majority of the peeple ere In favor ef a policy of hos tility against Austria. . Cabtaet's Dlfricalty. . - Ths members of the cabinet found It impossible to bridge the differences aep, era ting them from ths followers ef Slgnor Glollttl. They handed tn their resigna tions for the reason ' that they prefer r to follow this eourse rather than appear before Parliament when It meets May 30 and tve to the world aa exhibition, of in ternal division tn Italy,., which probably well he accompanied by recriminations and aoousatlona To do so would be moat undignified for Italy. The action of the cabinet leaves - King Victor Emmanuel free to. choose the men he considers best adapted to guide Italy In the present grave situation. . Both Signers Maroora' and Manfred! have been mentioned aa possible premiers Klna'a Right. " " . According to parliamentery custom the king has the rlrht to accept or reject' the realgrattnns of ths cabinet and. this morning Rome Is fulled with the wildest conjecture as to what his majasty will da Boms believe he will summon the cabinet before the Chamber of Deputies for dis cussion of Its course, being guided him- ' self . by what these 'discussions reveal, while others argue that Premier Salandra I resigned because of the attitude of Slgnor Glolottl and that Oiolottl must of neces sity take the place of Sxlandra. More dtspssslonate observers are of the opinion that the king probably will choose a new cabinet composed of man who have not taken part In the heated exchanges Jt the last week. Another suggestion advanced Is that the day has arrived for the formation of a great national cabinet similar to that of France, a ministry to Include the lead ing figures of all parties to which there shall be entrusted the momentous deel slon now before the country.

The Oermaa communi cation admits tha truth of tho more important claims made br General Joffre, the Fre&R) eommaader-ln- chlef, as to tha freat successes won by ther French between La Basses and Arras. If this attack can ba pushed home. the. consequences will bo still mora marked In the opinion of British mil itary commentators, who are claim ing today that a little further ad vance by tha French will open a con spicuous gap In tha Oerman line, a development which wUV- necessitate the falling back of tha Germans on a wide front To the north of La Bassee the British are doing little more than holding their own, but at the same time they are keeping great masses of Germans en gaged, troops which otherwise would be available against the French offensive. Cieraaaas Adranee ea Praaaaysl. In ths esstern field the Germanlo forces In Galtcla which are said to num ber 1.600,0 men, sre reported to be within twenty miles of Prsemysl. The Russians would appear to be developing counter strokes both on ths West Gall clan front and in Bukowina and they claim Initial successes, but military men here are care ful of committing themselves on the out come of these activities pending further developments. The hint made by Lord Haldane ef the possibility of conscription has been In terpreted in some Quarters aa meaning there la now less confidence that the war will bs over by fall. The resignation of the Italian aablnet hss nonplussed the general public, but well Informed political observers think this Is only a move In the game and that the final development will be the advent of Italy on the side of the-allies.
