    10 A
Appointment of Minister of
Public Subsistence Expected
to Relieve Situation.
(Oorreepondeirce of The Aeeoclated Preu.)
Vienna, Feb. 26 The recent ap
pointment by Emperor Charles of a
minister of public subsistence in the
person of Major General Anton
Hoefer, formerly a member of the
general staff and known as an ex
pert in army subsistence matters, lias,
so is the universal belief here, been
the best measure yet adopted to
meet the constantly increasing food
problems. Though already in the
care ot a central ioou uuimu aim
subject to many government regu
lations, public subsistence in Austria
threatened to become a hopeless
chaos because the men charged with
its administration lacked the neces
sary ability.
The new powers charged with pub
lic subsistence matters have set up,
and in part already enforced, a new
program, most of whose aspects are
decidedly military, as was suggested
by the training and experience of
Major General Hoefer. It is felt that
the food problems will be near final
solution on the day on which it will
be possible to suppress all private
sales to consumers, transactions car
ried on in defiance of the law and to
tal disregard of maximum price regu
lations. Persons willing to buy at a
rate far above the maximum price
have been able to get food in un
limited quantities, at the expense of
the small consumer who must look
upon maximum prices as the sole
means of getting food at reasonable
cost under present conditions. The
effect of this has been that the con
sumer willing to pay the price has
been able to get all the food he
wanted, while the poor man, often
after standing in lint for hours, has
been turned away empty-handed, be
cause private sales on the "speak
easy" plan had depicted the stores on
hand, the private purchaser buying
more than the law allows at a price
far above the maximum set by the
To Protect the Poorer.
It is the plan of the new food ad
ministration to proceed against this
practice with alt the severity the law
permits. In the past this has not been
possible. The Vienna public is ex
tremely good-natured and averse to
the role of informer or police spy,
a fact which has been exploited by
those with means and the storekeep
ers. But even the patience of the
small consumer in Austria has a limit
it seems, and court records of recent
-weeks show that a greater number of
food law transgressions are being re
ported. In disposing of these cases
the courts have shown no mercy and
an appeal has generally had the sur
prising result of punishments being in
creased. Thus a dealer it foodstuffs,
sentenced to imprisonment for three
weeks and a fine of 200 Crowns- aug
mented his punishment to imprison
ment for three months and a fine of
2.000 Crowns by having his case re
viewed by the appeal senate, which
body found that the lower court had
been altogether too lenient.
Despite this, usury in food prices
continues, of the fact that
defying food regulations is, highly
profitable. So great seems to be the
lure of making money of a general
misfortune that nothing suffices to
check it, a was shown already over
a century ago when the French revo
lutionary government made usury in
food sales a capital crime and was
obliged to execute a goodly number
of shopkeepers.
Much Food Stored.
Much of the food bought at pri
vate sales and delivered clandestinely
is not intended for immediate consumption.-
It is stored. There are
thousands of families in Vienna who
have on hand, stored in cellar and
garret, lockers and chests, food sta
ples for two years. For the sake of
appearances, and in order not to use
up their hoard, the same families meet
their present daily need in the open
market, increasing in this manner the
daily consumption to the extent in
which they buy for hoarding. Only
those with means enough can afford
this, so that the shortage due to the
prartice falls altogether upon the
poorer classes.
Rapacious storekeepers favor this
course, because it nets them prices
often 200 per cent above the maximum
price set by the government. Whether
the store be large or small makes no
difference. Each has its private buy
ers, to whom food is sold at any
price and in any quantity, regardless
of regulations. While thousands are
unable to get butter and fat in the
quantities prescribed by the govern
ment cards, other thousands buv it
much as they want and when they
want. The households which as yet
have been without meat on a meat
less day are few indeed, provided
the family treasury can bear the
strain. While the bulk of the sodu-
lation eats a very poor sort of black
bread, many enjoy full wheat bread,
is before the war, because they have
the price and money still buys any
thing in Austria. The storekeeper
recognizes in the present situation a
fine opportunity to make money and
is not letting the chance go by. '
In the end the retailer is little
more than the agent of the whole
saler hvthis mulcting of a war-worn
public. Not so long ago a shioment
of more than a million eggs spoiled
in a Vienna railroad yard because the
prevailing price did not suit the own
ers. - Today it is impossible to get
eggs at even 60 hellers apiece. But
this is merely one instance of illicit
price promotion, as the practice is
cauea nere. s
, War Is Blamed.
- There are a number of excuses to
delay shipments and keep food out
of the larger centers. Always the
war is blamed. It is the excuse for
every tactical move to cause artificial
shortages situations which do not af
tect maximum prices, but force up
food at the private sales. The imme
diate result of such a shortage is that
the cost of living, which in reality
moves beyond the sphere of maximum
prices altogether, goes up another 10

the cost of living of about 40 per cent,
living is about 250 per cent more ex
pensive than before the war.
It is known that the large Vienna
banks are not uninterested in this
practice. Much of the capital needed
to make the cornering and holding
food possible is supplied by them at
a suitable rate, of course. During
the war these banks have become al
most omnipotent for the reason that
the government needs them. It is
said Major General Hoefer will meet
in them an antagonist worthy of his
best efforts.
On the whole fool in Austria is not
scarce. Most of the rural districts
do not know as yet what government
regulation of one's bill of fare is.
While bread, butter and fat cards
have been introduced everywhere, the
country population pays on the whole
little attention to them.
Want! Higher Price.
The farmer also is averse to selling
at maximum prices. He will hold
his products for an opportunity to
make a private sale. He can afford to
do this, because it ultimately part ot
his foodstuffs be requisitioned by the
government he will get the maximum
price anyway. In certain districts in
Bohemia and the Salzburg country
food conditions are nearly normal,
though in adjacent mountainous parts
which must import some of this food,
the situation resembles those in the
cities and larger towns.
Austria's food problems have been
aggravated by the attitude of the Hun
garian government. .Austria is largely
industrial, while Hungary is essentially
an agricultural state. In the past the
two have exchaneed manufactured
for soil products. Anxious, however,
that its own stomach might suffer
Hungary has enforced a number of
export inhibitioins which have not
bettered the situation in Austria.
While the Hungarian government has
given as its excuse that the recent
crops have not been good, it is un
derstood that pure selfishness is the
actual reason for this somewhat un
brotherly conduct. Hungary at any
rate has more food than its popula
tion needs, though Budapest is suf
fering from the same hardships as is
Vienna. The food merchants of both
make all the money they can, and so
far neither government has been, able
to frighten them into a more reason
able attitude.
Meanwhile the situation in Vienna
cannot become much worse than it
is, without the government being
obliged to adopt the drastic measure
ot confiscation. Sanction tor this al
ready exists and, except dealers in
foodstuffs decide to be reasonable,
paragraph fourteen of the Austrian
constitution may find application here.
With certain classes the war and
its appeal to patriotism have lost all
novelty. They have decided to be
come rich while they have the oppor
tunity under a set of conditions which
has eliminated competition and re
duced the entire country to a state of
commercial vassalage. Some of the
examples of this are shocking. In a
certain Vienna cate, appendage of a
well-known hotel, the management
had the courage to charge 70 hellers
for a piece of rice cake worth one
American cent. The protest of the
customers has since then caused the
cake to be sold at 40 hellers after
the portion had been cut nearly in
half. For a pair of shoes 80 crowns
L asked today, on the plea that there
is no leather a fictitious claim
which is all the more absurd since
the uppers of such a pair of shoes
are made of a textile fabric.
Propose to Simplify Plans
Of Mexican Law Palace
(Correepondence of Th. Aeeoclated Preee.)
Mexico City, March 30. Plans are
now under consideration for simpli
fying and cutting down the plans of
the new legislative palace. Work on
this great building which is intend
ed to house the Mexican congress and
which, as projected, would have been
the largest legislative building in the
world, was begun under President
Dias.- The steel framework of the
building was completed, but no work
has been done on the building since
1910. It is estimated that it would
cost $32,000,000 to complete the build
ing under the original plans and it is
proposed to simplify these plans and
utilne the work already done to form
part of a less pretentious structure.

American flags are flying in every
city, town and hamlet in the United
States. The token is spontaneously
flung to the breeze and means that
the loyalty of the nation is back of
the president A recent law prohibits
the use of the flag for , decorative
purposes and provides that it shall
be displayed only where it can float
freely in the air. While no statute
designates in what position the Amer
ican flag shall float, the custom of the
army is to place the field of stars to
the north or to the east. Thus, if
Washington street in Boston is to be
hung across with flags, the stars
should be placed on the side toward
the harbor. Much erron:ous history
has been written of the American
flag and it has been one of the tasks
of the United States National Museum
to collect samples of flags from the
earliest days and to display them
where the visitor may learn the story
of the national emblem.
When the Flag Was Established.
Naturally, there were many forms
of early flags, especially colonial
types used by the individual colonies,
and militia regiments, before the flag
of the United Staates was established
by our Continental congress on July
14, 1777, now celebrated as Flag day.
This act required that the flag of the
United States be of thirteen alternate
red and white stripes and that the
union be thirteen white stars on a
blue field, representing a new constel
lation, but it did not define how many
points the stars should have, how
they should be arranged, nor make
provision ' for additional ones. At
the time of the adoption of this reso
lution, Washington is said to have ob
served, "We take the star from heav
en, the red from our mother country,
separating it by white stripes, thus
showing that we have separated from
her, and the white stripes shall go
down to posterity representing lib
erty." First Flown Over Fort Schuyler.
The first display of the "Stars and
Stripes" is believed to have been on
August 6, 1777, when the new flag
was hoisted over the troops at Fort
Schuyler, Rome, N. Y. John Paul
Jones is said to have been the first
to fly the Stars and Stripes over the
high seas on the Ranger in Novem
ber, 1777. The National Museum has
an early naval twelve-star type flag
said to have been flown by John Paul
Jones during the War of the Revolu
tion. It has been well said that our na
tional emblem stands for American
ideals and ideas it is not the flag of
a family or a house, but the flag of
the whole people. It is the emblem
of liberty and freedom, being indica
tive of individual independence and
yet symbolic of a united and closely
bonded people. Far from being mere
ly painted and dyed cloth, it repre
sents the constitution and govern
ment of 100,000,000 free people, it
stands for the people themselves and
records the history of their nation.
Oldest of National Flags.
In the National Museum at Wash
ington, among the many other pa
triotic relics and emblems, are dis
played thirty historic American flags.
On the labels the history of each is
recorded. Some came from the field
of battle, a number from famous sea
fights, and others were flown over
garrisons or forts by distinguished
American officers. The series of flags
shows very well the periodic changes
which have taken place in our flag.
From the time of the revolution the
stars and stripes in the flag have
varied. There were thirteen tar dur
ing the revolution, fifteen in the war
ot Vii, twenty-nine in the Mexican
war, thirty-three to thirty-five in the
civil war, forty-five, in the Spanish
war and there are forty-eight today.
The stripes were changed first from
thirteen to fifteen and then back asrain
to thirteen. It may be surprising to

know that our national flag is among
the oldest flags of the nations, being
older than the present British Jack,
the French Tricolor and the flag of
Spain, and many years older than the
flags of Germany and Italy, some of
which are either personal flags or
those ot the reigning families.
Original "Star Spangled Banner,"
The flag of the highest historic and
sentimental value to the whole coun
try is in the National museum collec
tions. It is the original "Star Span
gled Banner," which flew over Fort
McHenry in Baltimore harbor, during
the bombardment on September 13-14,
1814, and was the inspiration of Fran
cis Scott Key's immortal poem, now
sung as our national anthem. This
flag, exhibited in the Museum Arts
and Industries building, also known
as the "Fort McHenry flag," is of the
fifteen-star-and-stripe type, adopted
after the admission of Vermont and
Kentucky by an act approved by
President Washington, January 13,
1794. The "Star Spangled Banner"
measures about thirty feet square, al
though it was probably somewhat
longer, and is much battered and torn,
with one star missing, possibly shot
away. This great historic souvenir
of the War of 1812 has lately been
preserved by quilting on heavy linen,
and will ever remain one of the coun
try's most precious relics. From 1795
this form continued as the standard
flag until President Monroe's admin
istration, when congress enacted that
it should hereafter be of thirteen
stripes, with the addition of a star for
each new state, commencing July 4,
Formerly Not Carried by Army.
It seems that for many years the
army did not carry the Stars and
Stripes in battle, though it had been
in general use as a garrison flag. The
land forces during this period and be
fore it carried what was known as
national colors or standards, of blue
with the arms of the United States
emblazoned thereon, comprising an
eagle surmounted by a number of
stars, with the designation of the
body of troops. In 1834 War depart
ment regulations gave the artillery
the right to carry the Stars and
Stripes, the infantry and cavalry still
using the national standards, aid
these remained the colors of the in
fantry until 1841, and of the cavalry
until 1887, when that branch of the
army was ordered to employ the
Stars and Stripes. From its adoption
in 1777, however, naval vessels uni
versally displayed the national flag.
Many styles and forms of the Stars
and Stripes flag were in existence up
to 1842, and it was not until during
President Taft's administration that
definite specifications were drawn up.
An executive order dated October
29, 1912, tended to standardize the
"Stars and Stripes," and yet further
specifications in sizes were1 found
necessary by. President Wilson, only

Cut Off From the World,
Iceland Nears Starvation
(Correecondence of The AMOclated Preia.)
Copenhagen, March 20. Iceland,
which has been cut off from shipping
connections with Europe and the
United States for nearly six weeks,
is facing starvation, owing to its small
supply of foodstuffs and the failure of
ships to arrive with expected sup
plies. v As a result there is strong
sentiment here that a Danish warship
loaded with supplies be dispatched to
the island country.
The submarine menace is, of course,
responsible for the suspension of
shipping to Iceland. There are more
than 109 Iceland merchants now in
Copenhagen who are unable to return

United States Trade Swells Re
ceipts at Santo Domingo
Forto Ricans Active.
(Correepondence of The Aeeoclated Preee.)
Santo Domingo City, Dominican
Republic, Feb. 20. Despite four
changes in government within the
year the receipts from customs duties
during 1916 amounted to $4,300,000,
the largest sum collected durinz a
single year since the establishment of
the customs receivership under the
American-Dominican convention, ac
cording to C. H. Baxter, the general
receiver. The customs receipts dur
ing the current year in all probability
will exceed this amount, in his opin
ion, due to the fact that order in the
republic has been established through
the temporary military occupation by
the United States. Already this oc
cupation is being followed by a busi
ness expansion never before known
in the country, and apparently adds
weight to this opinion.
Most of this increased business is
being obtained by the United States,
recent trade figures showing that
about 80 per cent of the island's busi
ness is now carried on with the United
States. Prior to the war, Germany
had about 20 per cent of the island's
trade. This has now dwindled to al
most nothing, while the trade of
other European countries has been
considerably redurtd. There has been
a great increase in trade development
with Porto Rico, and Dominican mer
chants have found there their nearest
and quickest source of sudd ies. Por
to Rico now ranks third in the trade
list of the republic. Porto Rican mer
chants are taking advantage of their
opening and are sending representa
tives here to canvass almost every
line oi iraae. a new weekly steam
ship service between the two islands,
starting two montns ago, is now
bringing cargoes of increasing size.
The most direct mail and passenger
service between New York and the
southern ports of the island is now
via ban Juan.
The customs receivership has long
been looked upon by Dominicans as
the most substantial and enduring in
stitution established in connection
with the government finances. Al
though importers frequently complain
because of the heavy import duties.
these have been fixed by the Domini
can congress and are merely admin
istered by the receivershio. There is
much more complaint about the cus
toms than the administration of the
collection of custom, the chief source
of revenue for the government. There
is at present no form of property tax
in the republic, owners of land or im
proved properties either in the cities
or in the country paying nothing
therefor in the form of taxes to the
government. There is much serious
discussion regarding the possible
changing of this condition while the
temporary American government is
in force, Dominicans in the past hav
ingg generally agreed that they could
not impose a property tax without
serious opposition. There seems te
be a willingness, however, to have the
American government handle this
There is very general complaint
against the customs burden. None of
the necessities of life come' into the
country duty free. Al foodstuffs, cloth
ing and shoes pay heavy duties. The
average duty imposed by the federal
government is approximately 40 per
cent of the value of the article im
ported, while each port also levies a"
second and sometimes a third import
tax for municipal or special purposes.
The secondary duties imposed by the
different ports are not uniform and
may vary at each port. The general
duty on flour is $4.50 for 100 kilo
grams. The average duty on shoes is
$1.50 a pair for adult sizes. Clothing
pays different rates according to ma
terials. Gasolene retails in the neigh
borhood of 55 cents a gallon, 20 cents
of which is duty.

Neutrality Has Proven
Costly for Switzerland
. (Correepondence of The Aeeoclated Preee.)
Berne, Switzerland, April 2.
Switzerland's extraordinary expenses
that have grown out of the war will
amount, by the end of this year, to
about 700.000,000 francs, it is esti
mated. That figure, however, covers
only the cost of maintaining Swiss
neutrality, guarding the boundaries,
etc. There must be raised in addi
tion from 20,000,000 to 30,000,000
francs annually to pay the interest on
other debts. In all it is reckoned
tiiat for interest charges and sinking
funds the state is going to have to
produce an even 100.000.000 francs
above what it ordinarily raises. Thus

Though Berne has the reputation of
being a less expensive residence city
than Zurich or Geneva, it has been
hit very hard by the war. The cost
of food has risen on the average
