MUZZLE IS PUT ON
Dutch Dispatches Say Some
thing Drastic Has Happened
or is About to Happen in
the Kaiser's Domain.
London, June 29. Special dis
patches from Rotterdam say, it is in
ferred there,' in view of the sagging
of the German press, that something
arasiic nas nappenea or is about to
happen in Germany.
They quota the Frankfurter Zeitung
bmplaining that it was compelled to
issue its political section until further
notice without an independent expres
sion or opinion and say the censor
ship now far exceeds anything pre
vious. J he press is declared to be
completely muzzled. It is said the
real secret of the paper shortage is

News Falsified by Officials.
Copenhagen. Tune 28. The maniou-

authorities, the employment of the
vast apparatus of the war press of

special dispatchea and semi-official ac
counts and comments on military
events, the plain and fancy distor

bureau, working in the spirit instilled

Editorial Comment Suppressed.
It now. it possible to cite the testi
mony of Uerman newspapers, which,
writhing under the government cuts
in their paper supply, speak their
minds freely on the conditions in the
profession. The Deutsche Volks Zei
tung of Hanover, for example, writ
ing of the government efforts to con
trol and direct sentiment, says that
the contents of tht German papers
are i almost, word for word, the same
in all the papers, as these are fed
from the same aource and are not
permitted by reason of the censorship

brief statements obtainable from
Miss Suess and Miss Davis, the three
women had accepted Bradford's in

Copenhagen, June 29. For the
first time during the war the weekly
report of the Imperial Bank of Ger
many shows a decrease in its gold
reserve which this "Week is 76,000,000
marks below the preceding week. In
crements for a long time have been
st.-adily declining despite energetic
propaganda appeals to surrender
The bank, heretofore, however, has
been able, though often by the can
tiest of margins, to avoid the humil
iating acknowledgements that the
growth paused entirely.
This week's decrease is attributed
semi-ofBcially to heavy purchases
abroad. The increase of the gold re
serve nas long since ceased to keep
pace wun ine increase in note circu
lation. No Longer on Specie Basis.
The bank several months ago was
compenea to aDanflon the old legal
basis of gold and silver covering for
paper circulation ana supplement
metallic covering bv reckoning com
mercial paper to make up the pre
scribed one-third cover.
With the gold suddIv failine desnite
utmost efforts, federal authorities of
late devoted their chief energies to
campaign to restrain an increase in
note circulation by promoting the
use of checks and bank transfer! in
stead ot cash.

The correspondent says it obviously
is a small part of the German debt to
Holland, cnierly for ioodstuff, and is
the only practicable method of pre
venting further serious damage to the
reputation of the German mark.
The morning newspapers comment
on the significance of the decrease in
the returns of the Imperial Bank of
Germany, saying they have been falsi
fied throughout. They say thav al
though payments are never admitted,
the fact is that gold has been sent
out of the country from time to time.
The Times says the real difficulty
for Germany is whether the gold it
send abroad will ever come back.
Dutch Armored Cruiser .
Reaches Atlantic Port
An Atlanta Port, June 29. A
Dutch armored cruiser, the first war
ship flying the flag of Holland to
come into this port for more than
ten years, arrived here today. The
warship will remain for several days.
Officers of the ship declined to
disclose the mission of the vessel, but
it was reported that it is to act as a
convoy for a number of Holland pas
senger and freight vessels now about
ready to leave American ports.

'' Hearty Seception by Com
mander of Army and
Petrograd, June 29. Elihu Root,
head of the American commission, and
Foreign Minister Tereschtenko re
turned to Petrograd yesterday after
a brief visit to staff headquarters,
where they were welcomed by Gen
eral Brussiloff, in the name of the
Russian army, which, declared the
commander-in-chief, would continue
with all the powers at its-disposal, not
only to fight for its own cause that

There is nothing left to arrest the

in imperial days, has not been seen
in Mohilev since the abdication of the
emperor, it evoked little curiosity.

Ottawa, Ont, June 29. The dec
laration that a general strike of or
ganized labor in Canada will be called
if the government attempts to apply
conscription without first obtaining a
majority by the oeoDle was made
Parliament last night by Alphonse
Verville, who represents the district
of Maisonneuve, part of the city of
Mcntreal. He is the only labor mem
ber of the Canadian house and for
many years was president of the Ca
nadian Trades and Labor congress.
Mr. verville declared that in strik
ing Canadian labor would have the
srpport of organized labor in the
United States, although there would
be no strike there. The announce
ment was made in a speech on the
government compulsory service bill.
"I want this parliament to under
stand," said Mr. Verville. "that pas
sage and application of this measure
means a general strike and it means
national calamity. Even if there is
exemption, there will be no change
in labor's determination. It is a mat
ter of principle.
"It is not too late yet to avoid
this calamity. If the people of Can
ada .by direct verdict support con
scription, then organized lajjor will
submit loyally to the decision; but
organized labor, which must bear the
brunt of conscription, has been ig
nored and never consulted by the
Organized labor in the United
States would be loyal to President
Wilson, but would co-operate, Mr.
Vervile said in the protest of labor
in Canada against the decision of the
Canadian government, which has been
made without consulting labor.-
Mr. Verville said last February he
visited Detroit, Chicago, Indianapo
lis, Cleveland and Buffalo ind con
ferred wMth labor .men relative to the
prospective participation of the
United States in the war.
