Estimates of export business in wheat
generally ran above l.OJO.uOO bushels,
chiefly hard winter grades to go by way

French Censor Puts
the Ban on All

LONDON, Nov. SO The heartlesaness
of tha red tape system la shown In a let
ter written by a mother to one of the
London papers, who Instead of a letter
from her soldier son, now In the trenches,
received ths following typewritten notice
from the military censor: "letter do
stroyed. This patent tof envelope la ob
solet. and IU use Is forbidden."
Lately la was decided that the green
envelopes served out to the soldiers In
Franc should not b used, possibly be
cause they hsd fallen Into the hsnds of
spies. But th act of the censor fell hard
en the mother, who writes:
"My son was sent to France In the first
week of February, and has had no leave.
He came out of hospital on October T,
wher be had been a month (during
which time not one of his letters waa for
warded, each on coming back to us),
snd was sent straight up to the front
"We hav heard nothing about him
sine October 11, so our anxiety can be
understood. A comrade wrote to tell us
he was missing and thst th sergeant

But One Attempt .
To Interfere with
Prosecution of War
(Correspondence of the Associated Tress.)
PARIS, Dec. 10 In th sixteen months
slnos Franc went to war It Is declared
that there has been only on case of an
attempt made by vlolenc to Interfere
with the concentration of th army and
th prosecution of th war. This fact
la being pointed out In Justification of
th action which Minister of the Interior
Malvy took In resisting suggestions that
all revolutionary leaders, anarchists and .
persons suspected of disloyalty to the
republlo be arrested en th eve of thi
Issuing of th general mobilisation order.
Th nam of 8,000 of thess suspects
were, previous to ths war. Inscribed In
what was known aa "Not Book B."
It had been the government's plan. In
case of mobilisation, to hav all ' these
people confined, at leaat while the mobi
lisation waa going on. but sWnlster Malvy,
on whom th responsibility devolved,
found himself between two fires. ' Ths
socialist leaders Implored him not to
tak action, declaring It would only In
flame turbulent element. On the other
hand, th pollc and cautious memberi
of th cabinet endeavored , to ' Impress
upon him th gravity of th responsi
bility hs would assum In leaving at
liberty persons who hsd boasted that
In cass of war they would prevent th
mobilisation of th army by violence.
Jean Jaureg, leader of th socialist
party, who was to fall under an assas
sin's hsnd th very night the mobtllxs
tioa order wss Issued, and Ousts' Herve,
waa had been on of th most violent
antl-mllltant leaders, assured M. Malvy
that th socialists and th member of
tha labor federation would show them
selrea as loysl a any other category of
French citlsens and that It would be a
erlm to Issue order for th arrest of
th men whose name were Inscribed In
"Not Book B."
t'pon their advice Minister Malvy de
cided to tak th chances, snd It la now
pointed out that th results hav been
proof enough that fear ware groundless.
In th on ess In which an attempt
was mad to Interfere with th concen
tration of tha troop, detail of which in
lacking, It I pointed out that members
of th socialist party themselves detected
th attempt and punished It so brutally
that It was not repeated.
Plan to Establish .
! East of Colon
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
PANAMA. Iec. 10. -A start In th col
onisation of th Ban Bias or forbidden
ooast of Panama has been mad In con
formity with recent agreements mad b
twsen th Ran Bias Indians and th gov
ernment of th republlo. President Porrss
bad (ranted a concession to James M.
Hyatt, an American of Colon, to sstab
llsh a large farming colony on th shore
of Msndlnga bay, about fifty miles cast
Ths contract grants Mr. Hyatt thirty
hectares of land on which the new town
Is to be built. Immediately adjacent to
the town site there are 8". 000 hectares, or
12.800 acres, of good agricultural land
that will b cold to th colonist at vry
reasonable rates. This Is to b sold In
ten and twenty-hectar tract at prices
fixed by the government The town lots
are to be sold under the same conditions,
Ths Isnd is located on the western edge
of the forbidden coast and lies along the
shores of Maud in ga bay whsr th San
Bias Indians are the most friendly to for
eigners. The farm lands sre In th valley
of Navandl river and ar ssld te be very
rich and fertile.
This wtll be the first serious effort to
open this coast to settlement by foreign
ers. It hss been closed since the early
Hpanlsh conquest, th San Bias Indiana
having consistently resented the Intrusion
of all foreigners.
