JOId John Barleycorn, with char acteristic disloyalty to his friends, per formed a catnotic duty July 4r in 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 one. , 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 normal size. 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 pear to be in Omaha under rather suspicious circumstances, was placed uttder arrest by secret service agents, and is being held for investigation. It is assumed the man came here to? meet one of the heads of the Teu tcii spy system operating in this sec tion of the country. . Agents of the Department of Jus tice, when approached in regard to the case, refused to give out any in formation, t saying it is the orders frcra Washington not to say anything a"Mit alien enemy or spy cases for publication. l;:nsit Concessions Refused I Holland by Entente Allies vhe Ilasrue.

ALLIES MAY LAUNCH BIG DRIVE SOON TWELVE BILLION ARMY BILL NOW IS IN FINAL STAGE Senate and House Conferees Reach Complete Agreement; Fort Crook Water Supply Fund Included. By Associated Press. Washington, July 5. Senate and House conferees reached a complete agreement late today on the $12,000, 000,000 army appropriation. Most of the senate amendments including that for organization of a volunteer Slavic legion and to base army draft quotas on the number of men in class one instead of state populations were retained, as was the suddenly develop, tends to keep Ger- house provision giving the president man reserves scattered, 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 German reserves, ft is believed Gen eral Foch now is in a position to take this means of slowing up the enemy without impairing his own re serves.
