Comment of American Press o n
the Note to British Government
Following la comment of American
newspaper on the note of the United
States government to Ureal Britain in
re nurd to the interference of the British
navy with American trade:
New York Sun: Tne note reflect ex

upon the law and demand that' Great
Britain shall obey that law; and this

the American people.

has among the neutrals of the earth.
It has not killed Americans; It has killed
American rights. It has done more than
seise American property; It has elsed
the opportunity thus wantonly gained
to extend Its own trade. If even a gieam

IN THE STOCK YARDS
Pile of Tar Barrels and Store of Fer
tilizer Avert! Tremendous Lois
M Barns Go Ablaze.
DAMAGE IS THIRTY THOUSAND
A pile of tar barrels stacked near
several thousand sacks of fertilizer Is
probably all that saved the Union
Stock Yards company of several hun
dred thousand dollars' loss at their
haybarng north of L street on Thirty
first street, South Side, when fire
broke out Sunday at 9:15 o'clock
In the top of the old haybarns.
Fanned by a thirty-mile gale, the fire
had transformed the entire block of
three-story buildings into a roaring
furnace. The loss Is estimated at
The fire originated in the center
top of the old hay barns and was
discovered by John Zaloudek, son of
Special Officer Zaloudek of the South
Side police force, night clerk In the
stock yards chute house. It Is
thought to have orignated through
crossed electric wires.
Oorle Establish Stand.
Battalion Chief Johnny Coyle of the
South Side fire department arrived oo
the seen a few minute after the blase
had gained full headway and proceeded
to direct the efforts of the entire South
Side apparatu to saving the new brick
haybarns directly outh of th burning
cast Iron building. Aided by the large
pile of tar barrels and fertiliser, which
was piled between the baled straw In the
north end of tbe building, whtre the
fire originated, he was able to establish
a solid stand for the fight that was to
roiiow before Fire Chief Salter
hundred or more barrels of tar and sev
eral thousand sack of fertiliser produced
In the new Incinerator plant recently
Installed by the tock yard company
were destroyed completely. The fire was
under control at 10:30 o clock and was
practically out at 11 o'clock.
For a time it seemed that the blaie
would spread to the new haybarns and
thence to the north end of the atock
yards Just across the street. A change
of the wind from north to northeast
brought the focus of the blase on the
railroad yards east of the barn. Rev
ert 1 switch engine crews worked with
feverish haste clearing away the count
less freight cars that were sidetracked
About 1.000 people from the South Side
witnessed the blase, which lasted more
than an hour. A hundred firemen worked
Incessantly, while ten or more policemen
kept th fire lines clear of traffic. Su
perintendent Jack Walter of the Stock
Yards company was on ths scene hand
llng the situation for the stock yard.
It la roughly estimated that tha total
loss will approximate about 130.00S.

Cry of Fire Causes
Another Panic in

"fire" that rang through the old high
school building, where 800 pupils of St
John's parochial school, recently de
stroyed by fire, had assembled for their
studies, today caused a panic and a wild
scramble for the exits. There were no
fatalities, although a boy who, . who
Jumped through a window, broke his
arm. The pupils evidently were still

fire on October 9, which resulted In the
loss of twenty-one lives. The sight of

The chief feature-article in THE LITERARY DIGEST for November 6th deals in the most
comprehensive manner with the plots against ammunition exports that have been uncovered in this
country aince the war began. v
The editorial comments of American- newspapers of all political complexion are shown, in
cluding the viewpoint of the German-American press.
This article is strikingly illustrated with special photographs, one of which shows the dis
quieting possibilities that may lurk behind innocent looking exteriors. For instance, a suitcase
next to you in a street-car or a quiet house on .your street may hide enough explosive to wreck a .
block. All the ramifications of what appears to be a widespread plot against United States in-
dustries are clearly shown.
This number of THE LITERARY DIGEST is particularly rich in other subjects of interest '
to the great American public, among which may be mentioned: .. .

German Officials Gage American Public Opinion By It
That ii accurately mirrors American publio opinion to Europeans, is indicated by the fact
that a gentleman just returned from Europe who has had the advantage of intimate relations
with high official circles in Germany, states that "THE LITERARY DIGEST is read regularly ,
every week at the German Imperial Headquarters for an impartial expression of American publio
opinion, because it is known to be wholly uninfluenced by any consideration except to give an accu
rate and an all-sided reflex of publio opinion everywhere." If you are not already reading THE
