Amsterdam, Aug. 18. In connec tion with the sailing of the Dutch trade mission to America there is an interesting note in a leading journal . of economic and statistical news which calculates Holland's estimated .stocks of wheat a 170,000 tons and the new home crops' yield for con- - sumption, 68,000. This supply is sufficient to last un til the middle of March, 1918, at the present rate of consumption, which ' has been reduced to about one-third of the normal rate through bread ra tioning and mixture with other grain flouri. Must Reduce Rations. Unless it soon can be known to a certainty that 150,000 to 250,000 tons of wheat can be imported from North or South America the ration must be reduced further and the consumption of the bread loa.' changed to avert a r complete lack of the staple between the middle of March and September, 1918. . UNCLE SAM SOON TO REMOVE HEAVY COAL COST BILL would call for a division of the coun 'try into districts. Every operator would be paid for his product on a basis of cost of production, plus a definite percentage of profit. All the coal in a district would be pooled and !sold to the public at one price, al though (he prices fixed for different districts .might . vary, considerably. Al lowance would be given operators for i'quantity production, and efficiency of .service. ' - Officials of the trade commission say no scheme could be. worked out, either under a requisitioning system or a straight price fixing plan, where .by .it would be possible. to pay uni form prices for coal at all mines.

Powers vested in. the president by the priority act probably will be .turned over to Judge Lovett next ' week.. 2 ;''-.: ' .f" An appeal, to the government to be i'gin exercising immediately its power 'to direct shipments-was made today by the railroad war board, which in a statement declared the coal situation in the northwest still is serious.

Butte, Mont., Aug. 19. Miss Jeai nette Rankin, congresswoman-at-large from Montana, denounced "di rect action" by either aide in labor controversies, in a speech at a mass meeting ester Jay. She 'said "sub tle attempts to destroy the industrial standards of the country" were being made, and denounced a card system used by mine managers in hiring labor. "I have no patience with the al leged utterances of Frank Little," she said, referring to ; an Industrial Worker of the World oreanizer. re cently lynched here, "but I have the greatest contempt for that form of di rect action that permitted the foul and cowardly murder of Frank Little." As to threatened spoliation of crops, as a weapon against the employers. she said: The men who destroy grain fields are tak'uig the bread from a hungry child. The burden of waste always rests heaviest on the weak on those least able to stand the strain. "I am convinced that the demands of labor in this" trouble are just and should be granted. It is impossible prqperly to support a family today in Butte on the wages that are being paid." ; Nine Plotters Led By Kaiser Plunge n World Into War of the German general staff, was also excluded from the plot, the fact sheds a fresh light upon his career: it will be remembered that, after the first failures of the German campaign in France, Moltke was superseded, and before, his death in Berlin he let it be known that there would some day be disclosures about. the early stages of the war. It has always been suspected that Herr von Stumm, who in 1914 was head of the political department of the German foreign offic, and now is under-secretary For foreign affairs, was in the secret at an early stage. Falkenhayn was Prussian minister of war. . , Who the Leader Are.

British Front in France and Bel gium. Aug. 19. The French have completed their concuest of the ene my territory south of the St. Jansbeek river and the Breenbek river, which branches off from the St. Jansbeek to the east. Two strong German redoubts, Les Lilas and Mondovf farm, which hail held out against all attacks since the beginning of the allied offensive on Thursday, have capitulated and the French have pushed their front for ward to a neutral line formed by these waterways. Les Lilas redoubt lies about a third of a mile west of the juncture of the St. Jansbeek and the Breenbek. It was a large fortification of Concrete and steel, armed heavily with machine guns. . . - Although the garrison was small, their position was well nigh impreg nable so far as infantry attacks were concerned, and it was only when heavy artillery was brought up and concentrated on them late yesterday that the Germans surrendered. Force Redoubt Into Pocket. When the French advanced Thurs day they passed on either side of Les Lilas, leaving the redoubt in a pocket. Since then there has been continual fighting about this position, which was rendered doubly strong through the presence of a considerable flood tract and artificial ditches. The intense artillery fire yesterday played havoc with the redoubt and the garrison finally surrendered, an officer and twenty-three men being taken prisoner. The officer said they had intended to fight to a finish, but changed their minds when he big guns began their work. Mondovi farm was a similar posi tion, lying in an angle formed by the St, Jansbeek and the Breenbek. As in the case of Les Lilas, the French artillery( bombarded the garrison into submission and they surrendered dur ing last night. The Germans later tried to shell the French out of Mon dovi, but were unsuccessful. Capture 400 Prisoners, The oig number of prisoners and guns captured by the French is not yet available, but the prisoners will aggregate over 400, and about fifteen guns were taken. The small number of prisoners is due Jargely to the fact that the Germans were holding most of this section in small garrisons in numerous redoubts like Les Lilas. . The correspondent of the Associat ed Press today found the greatest Spirit of optimism prevailing among the French troops. They are feeling exceedingly good over their successes and their morale is at the highest pitch. , : Armory Locked, Wilkerson -. Holds Meeting on Street Shenadoalv la.,' Aug. 18. (Special.)
