JOId John Barleycorn, with char
acteristic disloyalty to his friends, per

helping to unearth a man named Win
tars, who ia supposed to be a German
On the morning of the Fourth a
trjjnk arrived at the Union depot that
smelled so strongly of booze the at
tention of the police was called to it.
They seized the trunk. and opened
it tip and found that a flask had
broken and saturated the contents of
the receptacle with the fluid which
both cheers and inebriates.
In an effort to ascertain the identity
of the owner the police went through
a number of papers and found a lot
of code letters and other documents,
welch would indicate the owner, who
went tinder three aliases, was either
a German spy or an alien enemy.,
Germans Turn to Vegetarianism,
. As Stocks of Meat Are Scarce
By Associated Press.
Amsterdam. July 5. Until well into
Tune of the present year the gravest
fears were enieriainea in ocnm iu
the failure of German crops owing to
the drought in April and May, writes
Dr. Dieckmann, in the Taegliche
Rundschau, but later the change of
weather brought an improvement so
that without exaggerated expectations
the new cereal year beginning August
1 promises to be better than the last
Last year's failure of the fodder
crop, the writer adds, caused con
siderable shrinkage of live stock which
will detrimentally influence cultivation
in the coming year.
Dr. Dieckmann next points out that
potash supplies to German farmers,
owing to the shortage of labor and
the difficulties of 'transportation, are
nearly 100,000 car loads in arrears.
Yet large quantities of potash have
been sent to the Ukraine, he says,
and he thinks this is the worst possi
ble policy because Germany must de
pend upon foreign grain in the com
ing year. It is also doubtful whether
the Ukraine can help much as Austria
h.s put in a claim for a large part of
the Ukraine grain crop.
The writer insists that "a full pound
of flesh" should be exacted from
Roumania, whose crops must be sub
jected to the "strictest control."
Turning to the meat supplies,' Dr.
Dieckmann fears that next year will
bring little improvement. lie says a
majority of the breeders declare that
Germany's stocks of cattle and pigs
will taket ten years to recover their
Germans, he concludes, are turning
in Greater numbers to vegetarianism,
this being conclusively evident in the
multiplication of kitchen gardens
especially in vicinity of large cities.
One Man Arrested.
Agents of the government went to
w$rk on the ease. and yesterday a
iraa named Winters, alleged to be
tf owner of the trunk, and who ap

suspicious circumstances, was placed

and is being held for investigation.
It is assumed the man came here
to? meet one of the heads of the Teu

The resolution will be sent to the
senate tomorrow with leaders there
planning its reference to the interstate
commerce committee for a study and
probable hearing during the recess.
Regardless of the recess plans, senate
leaders said its adoption by next Mon
day, the date for which the strike of
operators employed by the Western
Union Telegraph company is called,
is not possible.
Under the present plan wartime
prohibition and woman suffrage would
go over until congress returns in Au

prohibition advocates might keep con-
gree over until next week in a final
effort to pass the Norris prohibition
amendment to the ?U,UU0,UUU emer

Chicago employes of the Western
Union Telegraph company announced
in resolutions sent to President Wil

ter J. Konenkamp, does not represent
them and that they will not heed the
call issued by him for a strike next
Monday. The resolutions are said to
have been signed only by employes
with five years or more of experience.

The activity of the allied forces
puts a wholly new aspect on meeting
the forthcoming German effort. The
possibilities of feints at remote parts
of the line, to cover the development
of the real attack until it was well
under way, are -believed to be less
promising as it is the allies who are
now creating diversions.
It is regarded probable General
Foch will be able to form accurate
estimates of the course and strength
of the next blow before it is de
livered. One advantage of the increasing
manpower will be the possiblity of
allied thrusts at other points along
the line, compelling the shifting of

take this means of slowing up the
