BISSINO POLICY 'TOO MILD'
Washington, April 22. A bitter in
dictment of German brutality in the
deportation of conquered Belgian for
forced labor written from behind the
German linei by Brand Whitlock.
American minister to Belgium, was
made public tonight by the State de
partment. It came in a confidential
, -eport last January when the United
States was protesting vainly to Ber
lin against the treatment of the help
less people, but the department did
not dare publish it at that time or un
til Mr. Whitlock was safe on French
The report begins with a story ot
what happened immediately after tin
German army overran Belgium, ot
arrangements by the Belgian govern
ment to continue the wages of civil
ians thrown out of work and of the
conquerers' determination to put these
men to work for them.
Say Billing Policy Mild. .
"In August, Von Hindenburg was
appointed to the supreme command,"
says the report "He is said to have
criticized Von Bissing'i policy as too
mild; there was a quarrel; Von Bil
ling went to Berlin to protest, threat
ened to resign, but did not. He re
turned and a German official here said
that Belgium would now be subjected
to a more terrible regime, would
learn what war was. The prophecy
has been vindicated. -
"The deportation began in October,
in the Etape, at Ghent and at Bruges.
The rich industrial districts of Hain
aut, the mines and steel works about
Charleroi were next attacked, now
they are seizing men In Brabant, even
"The men,-shivering from cold and
fear, the parting from weeping wives
and children, the barbarities o? brutal
Uhlans all this made ' the scene a
pitiable and distressing one. I am
constantly in receipt of reports from
all over Belgium that tend to bear out
the itories one constantly hears of
'brutality. and cruelty. A number of,
men sent back to Mons are said to be
in a dying condition, many of them
tubercular. At Malines and at Antwerp
returned men have died, their friends
asserting that they have been vic
tims ofneglcct and cruelty, and cold,
of exposure, of hunger."

Attorney R. C James went to School

where Miss Vera Biggs teaches, to
investigate a complaint of Albert
Smith .that the flag and picture of the
oresident had been taken down from
the wall of the school room where.
they had been placed by the teacher.
It is said the teacher bought pic
tures of Washington, Lincoln and
Wilson and had placed them on the
wall and draped them with a flag. The
school board, composed ot td Knv
sey, John Glather and Walter Sar
torius, ordered the teacher to take
Wilson s picture from the wall.
It is said one of the members of the
board is a socialist, another a rtpub
lican and the other a German dem
ocrat. Some young men in the neigh
borhood heard ot the incident and
went to the school t night and
placed a flag over the school building
. and another in the school and left a
notice to the school board that on
account of their disloyalty to the
American flag they had better reform
or resign. '

satisfied the officers that they intend

Cuban Crop is Short;
Charles Pickens, general manager
of the Paxton-Gallagher Wholesale
Groceries company, reviewed the
labor troubles in the refineries of the
east and said in the Cuban revolution
mills were burned and growing crops
November 1, he said, Guma, the
Cuban sugar statistician, estimated
the growing crop at 3,600,000 tons,
which was 600,000 tons more than the
crop of 1916. His estimate last week
was reduced to i,7W,VW, a decrease
of 900,000 tons. And now it is re
ported the rainy season has started
earlier than usual and is interfering
with the harvest.
During the strike the western
beet refineries marketed their sugar
in the east and practically sold out.
The eastern refineries are now melt
ing 60,000 to 65,000 tons per week,
which is almost up to normal, but
they are all the way from four to
eight weeks over sold, and prices
quoted today are for delivery any
time within sixty days.
Out of Raw Material.
The western sugar refineries
which obtain their raws from Hawaii
are out of raws and cannot get ves
sels, owing to the submarine scare,
tigether with the fact that the ship
owners are able to obtain higher rates
for higher class tonnage. I do not
know a single refinery today accept
ing orders for anything like prompt
i am ot the opinion, however, that
many retailers and consumers in the
last sixty days have bought sugar
in excess of their requirements. The
probalities are as soon as the eastern
refineries can take care of the do
mestic trade they will accept busi
ness for export, which they have been
declining since early in the year.
Ihree months ago we would sell
a retailer carload lots. I wo weeks
ago we cut down the maximum, to
fifty bags. Last' week and this we
are limiting them to a maximum of
ten bags. ' ,
"We cannot get the sugar here
from the refineries. We dare not sell
more to any one retailer for fear of
running out and not being able to
supply the trade."
Louis Simon of Simon Brothers,
wholesale groceries, said: 'When
the embargo went on I had 17,000
bags. Now I am practically out, and
the refineries' representatives say
they will probably let me have a lit
tle Monday. A few days ago I tried to
get them to sell some and they
wouldn't give me a single bag. They
said I had some yet. They keep a
check on my business some way, and
know just about how many bags I
have on hand as well as I do.
Retailers Are Scared.
"It is true that the retailers and
the consumers have both been get'
ting scared and have bought more
than they needed. The retailer who
would in ordinary times buy one bag,
began a week 6r ten days ago to buy
twenty-five bags at a time. The re
tailer, who would ordinarily buy
twenty-five bags, began buying 125 to
150 bags at a time. The refineries
have some sugar stored in Omaha, but
they will not put it on the market,
because they say if they did, they
would be cleaned out in twenty-four
The president of another big whole
sale grocery house here, who
fused to Dermit his name to be used.
said: "We cannot get the supply. There
is no speculation so tar as the fac
tories are concerned. They went off
the market a week ago. They decline
to sell us. 1 think the speculation
so far as the majority of the people
are concerned, is over. The demand
is beginning to ease up a bit. At
least that is what' salesmen say. The
consumer is not speculating on it as
much as he did. So far as we are
concerned, however, we can only get
a carload at a time from the refin
eries, and it is difficult to get that.
Can't Count the Sacks.
The foreman of the Omaha Ware
house company, in the absence of of
ficers of the company, said the books
were in the safe, but he knew there
was much sugar in storage.
"Oh, you just couldn't count the
sacks, there are so many. They are in
