CADSES GUN CHANGE
Navy to Substitute Wood or
Fiber for Brass Cups Re
sponsible for Death of
Bed Cross Nurses.
Washington, May 30. To make
impossible any repetition of the re
cent unprecedented accident on the
American steamer Mongolia, in which
two Red Cross nurses were killed,
the brass type of powder cup used in
American naval guns for a score of
years, is to be -abandoned for, wood
or fiber substitutes.
In making public tonight a report,
the special investigation board exon
erated the naval guard on the Mon
golia and attributed the accident to an
unexplainable deflection at right
angles of a portion of a brass powder
.. c,.t!irv rianipla announced
that, "while a similar tragedy might
not occur again in twenty years, yet
we do not propose to take the risk.
The change will )t a sweeping one,

kind used on the Mongolia are be

Gun Solely To Blame.
The special board of inquiry, which
was headed by Captain F. A. Wil
der, retired, found that the blame for
I he Mongolia accident apparently
rested solely on the type of gun cup,
Tic cups used being perfect and the
i Tillers without faujl.
Attached to the report was a state
i"; ut bv Admiral Earlc, chief of ord-
cmphasizing that the shells
pit on the Mongolia atter removal oi
itll )hc old ammunition responsible
for previous accidents and of a type:
m!oitcd by the navy after extensive
rcirnrch and heretofore regarded as
i- Volutcly safe.
The board held specifically that the
nurses "were located in a position
nitli referenre to the gun, which -or-ciitv.rilv
would not have been consid
ered dangerous." They were 175 feet
i -ft and ten feet Shove the gun.
"Xo responsibility for the accident
.laches to the commander of the
armed guard or any member thereof,"

HOARDING OF FOOD
MEANS HIGH PRICES
Pealers Say That Despite, Gov
ernment's Request, Consum
ers Are Laying in Sur
What does the man, fearing high
food prices due to the war, profit by
hoarding foodstuffs? This is the
question Omaha retail dealers are-
asking, and they point out it is in
direct violation of the government's
request that foodstuffs be not hoarded.
A grocer, whose average monthly
sale of flour is 500 sacks, sold 1,000
sacks last month, but indications are,
dealers say, that in the near future
sales will show a decided decline.
"Housewives and farmers, fearing
war time prices, purchased large
amounts of flour and other foods."
a grocer asserted, "but they have losti
money ior Hour in tne eastern mar
kets has dropped and it is very prob
able that with the proposed control
of the nation's food by the govern
ment during the, war, the price of
flour and other products, will drop.
"Hoarding' not only hurts dealers,
but hurts the purchaser." the grocer
coatinued. "Heavy sales have a
tendency tfx. boost prices, causes a
merchant to buy large stocks at these
high prices. Then sales drop, prices
drop and the dealer has to-flrop the
price of his high-priced article."
Prices Are Lower.
Even at present: dealers declare, it
is possible to purchase flour at a
lower figure than a month ago. The
customers had purchased for the
future and had stocked up lor a
month or so to come, while it llivy
had only bought their immediate
needs, they could buy flour now at a
lower figure than' they paid for the
flour hoarded away in their homes.
Not only has flour been purchased
in large quantities, but canned goods,
suear. dried fruits and other food
stuffs that will keep. And not only
Omaha merchants, but dealers in sur
rounding cities, in fact, almost over
the entire country, must meet this
condition. Some retailers in smaller
towns, keepers.of general stores, re
port farmers faying ill supplies of
foodstuffs in amounts almost large
enough to last them all summer,
through the harvest and threshing
periods. This, dealers declare, is
what demoralizes markets, what
causes high prices, and what may
eventually force absolute control of
the country's food supply by the government.

""The Morning After"
' (By DR.I W. BOWER.)
' One of the characteristic headaches
due to uric acid in the system, which
acts as a poison when it accumulates,
is due to alcohol taken the night be
fore. The kidneys do not succeed in
throwing ofr this poisonous accumu
lation, the stomach is nauseated, or
the blood congests in the head, caus;
ing throbbing pain, called headache
the heart is depressed, circulation of
blood poor to the extremities, the
muscles feel tired, or twinges of pain

this uric acid is deposited in the tis
sues or joints it causes rneumansm

of hot water, a half pint in the morn
ing, and a little Anuric. bometimes
the "blues" or a sort of rash, or a
pimply1 face, giving warning of an
"uric acid storm." At such times aN
ways take' Anuric (double strength),
which can be obtained at almost any
Amir tnre. and which you will find
dissolves the uric acid almost as hot
water does sugar.
Avoid too much meat, tea and alco
hnt. Drink an abundance of water,
both hot and cold. Take Anuric three
times a day until the bad symptoms
all subside. This is the best way to
avoid rheumatism and many of the
pains and tches due to a uric acid
condition. If you drink any alcoholic
beverage you should keep the kidneys
and liver active with Anuric, so as to
throw off the poisons which accumu
late. If your tongue is coated a dark
brown taste, breath foul, followed
sometimes by colds, indigestion, bil
iousness, constipation or sour acid
stomach, vou should take some vege-
table laxative. Such a one is made in
sugar-coated form from the May-apple,

druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant

WILL CLOSE MONEY
United State, to Retain Finan
cial Supremacy, Will Frown
on Floating of Outside
Bond Issuei Here.
Washington, May 30. To enable
the United States to retain its pres
ent supremacy in international finance
throughout the war an aim with
which the entente powers are under
stood to be in full accord and to
emerge in a strong financial condition
afterwards, officials have in mind the
enforcement of a program, the salient
features of which trtl
Virtual closing of American money
markets to further foreign govern
ment bond issues throughout the war.
Stabilizing business conditions, so
far' as posiible by the contemplated
international purchasing board.
Centralisation of the country's fi
nancial system by the admission to
the Federal Reserve system of
thousands of strong trust companies
and state banks at present non
members. Work Along These Lines.
Virtually all financial plans of the
government, including the flotation of
the Liberty loan and the program of
financing the entente government as
well as the efforts to continue the
c.ui. try's present prosperity, arc
made with those features in mind.
Closing f the money markets here
to further issues of foreign govern
mei.t bonds is regarded as imperative
if the government is to remain master
of the financial situation. To this
end it is understood the government
will notify bankers contemplating the
underwriting of fbreign bonds of its

The investment market so far as
the government can control it, is not
to be disturbed by outside bond is
sues for the big proportion of Amer
ica's savings, it is felt, will be needed
to finance the part America will play
in the war.
Co-operating with the United States
in this respect, Great Britain changed
its plans upon America's entrance into
the war, to issue $200,000,000 in bonds
here, secured by Canadian Pacific se
curities. Great Britain borrowed
what funds it needed from the Amer
ican treasury instead.
In line wit!1 this policy the govern
ment "may find it necessary to induce
the government of Cuba to accept a
loan of $.50,000,000 instead pf raising
this amount, as contemplated, by
floating a bond issue here.
Stabilization of business conditions
is regarded as essentia: by treasury
officials in order to permit the coun

With a commission spending as
much as $U),000,000,000 a year the
estimated extent of the proposed com
mission's purchasing powers it is
felt that virtually all lines of industry,
whose efforts contribute toward win
ning the war would be assured of
steady employment at a fair profit and
that producers in all lines would not
run the risk of fluctuating markets.
A certian amount of fluctuation is
regarded as desirable and this it is be
lieved would result from the opera
tion of the law of supply and demand.
At the'saine time, with the commis
sion operating at full power, produc
ers would be enabled to estimate their
requirements in raw material at a
fairly stationary figure, it is thought,
and would not run the hazard of pur
chasing at high prices to face a fall
ing market a few weeks later.
