Which Will Enable General
Pershing to Equip His
Washington, Feb. 21. An econo
mic agreement with Spain under
which General Pershing will get
mules, army blankets and other ma
terials in that country in return for
cotton, oil and other commodities
from the United States, was signed
today in Madrid. The State depart
ment was so advised tonight by Am
The terms of the agreement could
not be learned tonight and it was not
known whether they had any bearing
on the rate of exchange between the
two countries, which the United
States has desired to adjust because
of the recent depreciation of the Am
erican dollar in Spain where it is now
worth only about 75 cents.
Success of the negotiations was
welcome news to officials here at the
ability to buy supplies in Spain will
save ship tonnage and enable General
Pershing to build up his reserve
stores much more rapidly than prob
ably otherwise would have been pos
sible. Will Aid Ship Tonnage.
The negotiations followed refusal
of Spain to supply a large number of
mules, 200,000 blankets and other ma
terials ordered by General Pershing
last month. The official reason given
for the failure to fill the order was
said to have been that the Spanish
railroad system had broken down
and it was impossible to handle goods'
destined for France.
Negotiations at Madrid apparently
were going on when it became known
that Spanisch steamers were being
held up in American ports for lack
Through their control of bunker
coal the United States and the allies
were in a position to stop not only
the shipment of goods to Spain from
the allied countries, but from neutrals
as well. Spain is dependent upon this
country for large supplies of food
stucs as well as other materials.
Majors Belmont and Brown, United
States army, are understood to have
conducted the major part of the ne
gotiations for the United States,
while Spain's representatives were
Senor Urquijo, a banker, Senor Gar
nica, under secretary of finances and
Senor Pina, former Spanish ambas
sador to Washington.

Hutcheson has declined to leave to
the board decisions respecting condi
tions of labor, but has agreed to let
it adjust questions concerning hours
and wages. Today he presented to
the conference a proposal for signing
the memorandum if it is amended to

Awaken Women to the War
Chicago, Feb. 21. Mr. Thomas
Peston, jr., formerly Mrs. Grover
Cleveland, came to Chicago today to
take charge of the women's activities
in connection with the Congress of
The women of America are not
working together sufficiently to win
the war and until they do, it will
never be won, she asserted.
"America is not used to .being seri- '
ous about anything and it will take
the casualty lists to make women
realize the enormity of the problem.''
