Wheat Supply la Small.
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. .

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.
Shipment, Big Problem. ,
s, Priority of shipment is recognized
, as one of the biggest problems con
fronting the government in any solu
tion of the coal situation. .Two laws
recently put on the statute books,1 of
; licials believe, give the government
full power in that respect They are
'the act empowering the president to
direct priority for certain shipments
and the act giving the Interstate Com
; merce commission power to direct the
movement of the cars.
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. Al
though there has been a large Increase
ii the movement of ! coal, the state
ment said, the direction in many In
stances has not been towards c6m
munitics that need it most. , '

Montana Congresswoman De
clares Subtle Efforts Being
Made to Destroy Industrial
Standards of Country.
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." ;

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.
' The Archduke Frederick is a cousin
of the late Emperor Francis Joseph,
and 'took nominal command of the
Austrian forces at the outbreak of
war. Count Berchtold was Austro-
Hunganan foreign secretary, Count
Tiza was Hungarian premier and Gen
eral -Conrad von Hoetzendorf was
chief , of the Austro-Hungarian gen
eral staff. ' "
It has been understood for a lonsr
time past that other unpublished evi
dence exists of pledges given by Ger
many to Austria-Hungarary during
the first fortnight of July, 1914; it
would seem that the time has come
for its production.

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. , :
