Telegraph company, under date
of February 27, says it is re
ported from Luga that the Ger
man detachments which entered
that town a day or two ago are
leaving. The Russians, moving
to meet them, have turned to
ward the main railway and oc
cupied three small stations
within 12 miles of Pskov. Large
Russian detachments are con
centrating near Pskov. The
railway men are forming; parti
san detachments along the line.
From Smolensk comes the re
port that the Germans have met
with strong resistance within 16
versts (10.7 miles) from Orsha
and were forced to retire.
Direct information from Novo
Selie says that the Germans
have received orders to make
no further advance and the Ger
man cavalry patrols, which ap
peared at Novo Selie, have re
tired. According to the bolsheviki

Precious Metal Growing Scarce
in This Country, and (govern
ment Must Have for War
Washington, March 1. Orders were
issued toda to commandeer for
war purposes of all crude and un
worked platinum in the hands of im
porters, jobbers and wholesalers.
Increasing need for platinum in the
manufacture of munitions, according
to officials, made this step imperative.
Chief Source Eliminated.
Commandeering will be carried out
through the War department. The
world supply of the metal is com
paratively small and production has
shown a steady decrease since the
war began. Internal troubles in Rus
sia virtually have eliminated the
world's chief source of supply.
In requisitioning only the crude and
unworked platinum, government of
ficials said they obtained for national
purposes the greatest part of the
metal now in this country for the
amount distributed to jewelers and
dentists is comparatively small. The
war committee of the jewelry trade
has been asked to ascertain how much
is now in the hands of manufacturing
jewelers, and if necessary they will
be asked to surrender it. There is
no intention of commandeering manu
Census Being Made.
A census of the available platinum
is being Liade and until it is finished
officials will not know how much is
on hands. The largest importation
in recent years was 22,000 ounces col
lected in Russia by an American lieu
tenant attached to the embassy at
Petrograd and brought to this coun
try for government purposes. A ten
tative price of $90 an ounce was fixed
for that consignment.
The United States alone uses in
normal times about 165,000 ounces of
platinum and produces only about fiOO
ounces annually, according to the
United States geological survey.
Only about 5,000,000 ounces have
been produced in the world to date
of which 1,000,000 ounces have been
used in jewelry, 1,000,000 ounces in
dental work,' and the remainder for
scientific pu-poses. It is an essential

a constituent of explosives, and in

employes and his testimony was eag

other representatives of organized
labor from all section of the country.
After tracing the history of the
fight for a shorter working day, he
read from a number of reports and
quoted various large employers of
labor to substantiate his contention
that the eight-hour day in actual
operation had proved profitable to the
employe and highly beneficial to the

Washington, March L A special

a letter to Congressman Lobeck, with
reference to bids for supplies at Camp
Dodge, says: "After examining fur

supplies at Omaha, I find the fault was
with tne depot quartermaster ai ni--cago,

"This, I thinkj is now corrected and
I trust there will be ho further diffi

business that properly belongs to it
and which it formerly secured."
Colonel Grover, of the quartermas
ter's corp. told Congressman Lobeck
today that statements made to Gen
eral Goethals by Charles Pickens,
when in Washington the other day,
had gone far toward bringing to Gen
eral Goethals the realization ' that
gross discrimination against Omaha
had resulted by reason of his general
order, and convinced him that
changes were necessary.
