President's' Own Official, is
Quoted in Eeply to State

Even If Foe Smashes Line in
France, Thirty Years' Work
, . Is Before Them.
Berlin, Oct. 30. (By Wireless to
SayviJle.) "The situation is as good
is possible and all will be well also
in the future."
Thus Field Marshal von Hinden
burg, chief of the German general
staf, described the present war situa
tion to a representative of the Vienna
Nieue" Frei. Presse whom he received
at headquarters in the presence of
General von Ludendorf, tirst quarter
master-general. As to the duration
of the war Field Marshal von Hin
denburg said: 1
"That depends upon our enemies.
Prophesying does not pay. In the
hour of war one had better leave it
alone. It is possible that the year
1917 will bring battles which will de
cide the war. " However, I do not
know, and nobody knows. I only
know that we will fight this War to
a final decision.
Do Not Think of Peace.
General von Ludendorf here added
"We do not think of peace. We a,re
absolutely decided to continue the
war, as is shown with sufficient clear
ness by tpe measure t the allied
(Teutonic) commands."
This interview with the chief of
staff was given out today by the
Overseas News agency for publica
tion. It continues: "The correspond
ent in turn reported to Field Marshal
vqn Hindenburg on the general feel
ing in Austria-Hirfigary, declaring it
was one ox commence aim sausiat
tion, but,that, as everywhere, the end
, of the war was wished for. The field
' marshal replied: 'That we all wish;
undeistand this well. The Austro
Hungarian people have accomplished
their full duty during this war and
have made all the heavy sacrifices
which were necessary. But still new
sacrifices must be made lest those al
readynade have been made in vain.'
' v Morale Important, -c 'Wi
7. "General vdh Endefrdorf -interjected":
S 'Tell your Austrian friends that there
is only one efficient means for ending
the war; a firm will to end the war by
victory. Every soldier and all others'
must work together; they must realize
that r)o wav but war leads to peace.
Munition is not all; notv grenades,
but the morale of the troops brings
the final decision, and the morale of
the German and Austro-Hungarian
troops is superior to that of all our
adversaries. Nevertheless, munitions
mean very much in this war. At a
Dnevious visit Field Marshal von Hin
denburg told ypu 'the main thing is
discipline.' Thai is true. Discipline
is based on the completed education
of every individual man.
- "Asked whether there was any
chance that the war would be culmin
ated by a decisive blow, General von
Ludendorf said:
' " 'Perhans. The trend of events
must show this. I prefer to make
no statement.
"Asked whether the Russian masses
shall be exhausted Field Marshal von
Hindenburg replied:
Sleep Most Important.
"The field marshal said that since
the beginning of the-war he had been
on home leave in order to see his
- tamity only seven days, speaking on
the importance of sleep, he said:
" The main thing is sleeping. Soldiers
must be able to sleep that is a most
important quality.' As for the sleep
ing pf army commanders while great
'decisions were going on, the field
marshal said: 'Why not? if every
thing goes as you want it then sleep
is, perhaps, somewhat less sound, and
if everything is well then, ot course,
you sleep all the better.

pvans Hughes-replying further to
Statements in rresment vv usuii s Cin
cinnati speech toldan audience here
today that the $2,000,000,000 increase
in American exports last year was due
almost exclusively to the demand cre
ated by the European war and cited a
statement by Chairman Hurley of the
Federal Trade commission, to uphold
the claird that America is "not pre
pared for post bellum - competition
with Europe."
"TmU $2,000,000,000 increase," Mr.
Hughes said, "represents almost ex
clusively the demand created by the'
European war.' What are we to do?
There' is but one safe course. It is
idle to talk about conditions of work
if there is no, work. And you can't
have any lastingjiasis for prosperity
unless you v apply the protection to
American industries. .
I was amazed the btlier day when
the spokesman for the opposing party
told the people that we were ready.
He said insubstance that the nations
engaged in this struggle are so wasted
Dy war mat we neea not iear ineir
"That is a very serious mistake if
you want to know what the facts are.
Let those who speak for the opposing
party take the words of the federal
trade commission, spoken almost at
the same time, as a result of their own
inquiry. What is the use or having
socalled expert bodies if we do not
pay any attention to what they say?
"This is what Chairman Hurley of
the Federal Trade commission said
last week in New York on this very
subject, and f commend it to the very
s.erious attention of those who speak
tor an opposing policy, tie says:
" 'While in many respects we know
little of what is going on in the war
ring nations,, we do know that within
sound of the guns, almost within
reach bf the falling shells, .Europe is
reawakening its industries.' 1
s He savs. further: Under the
stress of a life and death struggle ev
ery effort is being made to attain the
highest efficiency in the production, in
the distribution and in the tufc of com
modities of' all kinds.' He adds:
New processes are being discovered,
new inventions are being madeand
new forms of organization are being
created, and that war has compelled
Great- Britain 'to make thirty years of
industrial, progress in thirty months'.
x "Mut Increase Efficiency,-'
",f1f'our industries "'are not to "be
caught slow of mind and flabby of
muscie we must improve uur uusiucss
organization and increase our manu
facturing and -merchandise efficiency,
and must, keep jace with eve'ry step
in turope. . : . '
"That is the statement of the board
by the chairman of it, with respect to
increased efficiency , abroad. They
have got organization. They have got
a better knowledge' ot themselves.
They -have got a better discipline and
efficiency in production than ever b
fore." The economic basis of the pro
duction has not been affected. Even
the waste of the men, in view of the
numbers coming along year by year
into industrial activity leaves them
with more men, today to enter into
production than they had betorc.
Protection Also Needed.
' "Now these are facts for American
business men and American workilig
ment to think carefully over. When
it is said here we need organization
I agree. .When it is said thaf we need
agree, but there is one thing that ware
nqt said: ft is the thing wlych our
opponents, in view of their principles,
cannot well say. It is a thing that we
do say, and that is, whatever your
organization, whatever your alertness,
you .have .got .to have your markets
protected against the competition of
labor that is paid less- than you are.
"We propose to protect American
industry. You cannot run this country
"on the principle ot tantt tor revenue
only. We want to build up Ameri
can industry, protect the American
wage scale and lay the foundation for
social justice."
Mr. Hughes spoke in the dpen air
here 'before a crowd which was so
noisy that his voice could hardly be
heard fifty feet away. He left at
11:30 for Stubenville.
Indians Predict
Mild, Light Winter
Duluth, Minn., Oct. 30. Northern
Indians schooled in woodcraft.
through the signs of streams and for
est, see a kindly, softened winter, and
their labors thus are lessened. They
will not go to any great shakes to
have their squaws build warm wig
wams, they sav. V
The Indians base their belief on the
light corn cro, the scarcity and lazi
ness' of the squirrels at this time,
when' they should be filling their tree
caches. In addition the muskrats are
dilatorv in building their1 habitations;
the fur-bearing animals have thin
coats now, when they should be fitting
out in their thickest overcoats, and
bark on trees is loose.

to the constitution and added that the
saloon keepers, brewers and distil
lers always vote for wet candidates
irrespective of the ticket on which
their names appear.
' "The time has come," he said, "for
dry voters-to support none but dry
candidates. Where the candidates on
both tickets are dry, vote for the man
who is the dryest. This is what I
shall do when I go to the polls at

Union Men Asked ..
To Withdraw iSons
From Boy Scouts
Boston, Oct. 30. Workingmen. of1
of the country arg asked to withdraw
theirs sons from Boy Scout organiza
tions in a resolution adopted by the
state branch American Federation- of
Labor last night. 1 he action came
after a report that Charles C. Jackson,
president of the Greater Boston coun cil
Boys Scouts, had advised scout
masters to prepare the boys under
them to "withstand politically the ag
gressiveness of labor unions," which
he is said to have predicted would be
"savage and bitter after the war.
"If this is to be the attitude of the
Boy Scout movement," the resolution
said, " it is time, that the wage earners
of the country should take their sons,
out of that movement, fo- he reason
that boys and young metrshould be
educated on liberal Hues and not nar
row ones."

tickets actually have been sold in va
rious parts of the United States to be

to Mr. Steiner.
Mr. Stcintr is seeking legislation in
Illinois aud other states to check the
irresponsible activities of 4hc deal

"For his own good, he maintains, the

be colonized on American farms, not
sent back to impoverished Europe."

"To be perfectly fair." said Mr.

true, brought in for discussion in

the candidacy of Senator Hitchcock
