WILL NOT BE USED ' UNI COMPLETE ENTENTE ALLIES CONFIDENT OF THEIR ABILITY TO WITHSTAND ANY DRIVE FROM GERMANS. j FIELD AS ALL AMERICAN FOE Allies Bavlng Their Men While the Germans are Draining Their Country Dry. j - Ottawa.—So confident is the en tente of Its ability to wltstpnd any drive the Germans can launch that it | has been decided not to use ths Amer ican army untl! it becomes a complete and powerful force, according to a ca ble summary of operations on the 1 western front received here from the j war committee of the British cabinet. "The position -now Is," sfcld the ; t summary, "that the Germans, deter mined to concentrate every available ; unit on one enormous offensive, are | draining their country dry to force a decision before it is too late, while the entente are so confident that, hav , ing been given the choice of a small immediate American army for defense or waiting till they are reinforced by a complete, powerful, self-supporting American army, they have chosen latter. "To the sledge-hammer uses of masses of men by the enemy the allies j are opposing the strategy of meeting | the blow with the smallest force ca- I pable of standing up to the shock, j while keeping the strongest rese'rve possible. Troops on the wings are permitted to give ground within limits whenever the enemy has been made to pay a greater price than the ground Is worth, the whole aim being to re duce the enemy to such a state of exhaustion that our reserve,"'at the right moment, can restore the situ ation. What British Have Done. "In the present'operations, th 6 Brit ish army has withstood many times its own weight of enemy masses. It has retired slowly, exacting the full est price. Meanwhile, Foch holds the bulk of the French in reserve, sending units only to points hard pressed. This strategy has justified itself In that in three weeks it has seen the enemy brought to a standstill without a sin gle strategic objective being fulfilled and with losses so Immense that his reserve is in danger of proving Inade quate to his policy. "The German commander, seeing how nearly he is himself to the allied reserve, has been com pelled to accept temporary failure and call a halt. His position is tacti cally exposed in two dangerous sali ents on waterlogged ground. His countryment are dangerously dissat isfied at the immense price paid for his failure to terminate their suffer ings. His allies are on the verge of quarrelling and daily exhibit tlieir growing dislike and distrust of the task master who robs them of their lives and food. "His reserve* have nearly reached complete exhaustion. Those of the Franco-British are stiH in being, while the American preparations 'de velop. The time draws closer when defeat is inevitable. ■ Therefore, he must renew the offensive. His prep arations proceed feverishly but It takes months properly to organize such an offensive. He must be sat isfied with what he can do In weeks. We may, therefore, expect a renewed, furious onslaught before long. The enemy is so committed to his strate gical plans that we may await his main blow on the Arras-Amiens front while necessity compels him to try to , Improve his position in the Lys sector. "The allies may have complete con fidence In the result. For the enemy the issue Is a desperate endeavor to avoid defeat; for the allies the issue is only that of victory deferred. The coming battle may be a repetition of Verdun on a large scale and if both sides should be exhausted, the allies have vast powers of recuperation, while Germany has drafted her re sources already." AMERICAN ARMY OFICERB ARE FRANKLY DELIGHTED Washington.—News of the British statement that the entente is so con fident of its ability to hold thS Ger mans that the American army Is not to be usod until It bocomes a com plete and self-supporting force, was received by army officers here with frank delight, not only because of the sjipreme confidence Indicated by such a decision but on account of the keen desire of American military men to take the field as all-American foe.

GERMAN ATTACK REPULSED British Improve Their' P6sitlons Along Bomme Front, Despite the Artlliery Fire. * The Lloyd George ministry has won vindication in the British parliament at a time when defeat would have meant a government crisis. A motion by former President Asqulth asking for the appointment of a special com mittee to Investigate sensational charges made by Major General Fred erick B. Maurice, published earlier in ' the week, was defeated by a .vote of, 293 to 106. While Mr. Asqulth disavowed any .intent to put the present government to a crucial test, it was felt that with an adverse vote the Lloyd George cab inet would have resigned. The Maurice Incident, involving charges of misrep resentation by the premier in bis ro ports to the house of commons, has stirred all England, and the section - of the press hostile to Mr. Lloyd George did not hesitateto say that If the present government fell would be an alternative cabinet ready to step into office. Germans Made Attack. The allied defense on the Flanders front to the southwest of Ypreshas again been tested by the Germans and has been found adequate. Two divisions of- Teuton troops were em ployed on a relatively short front and were sent into the fight under cover of a terrific artillery fire. The front chosen for the attack extended from the village of LaClytte to Voorme zeele, but the center of the assault seems to have been at Vierstraat, a hamlet northeast of Kemmel hill. The flank of the German attack ing line were stopped short by lire from the French and British artillery posted on high ground and which was able to enfilade the German regiments as they tried to advance. In the center, however, the Germans made quite a serious dent In the allied line. Wednesday night, however, the allies drove forward In a counter-at tack and the latest reports from Field Marshal Haig are to the effect that the line has been re-established. The Germans are reported to have loit very heavily during the fighting. COMPROMISE ON TIME LIMIT IS OUTCOME Atlanta, Ga. —With the disposal of the question of the time limit on min isters by the general conference of tbe Episcopal Church, South, were that the next big issue to reach the debate stage would be the demands of the woman for laity rights, already favorably act ed upon by the committee on re visals. The conference after a two-day par limanetary wrangle, adopted the mi nority report on the time limit pro posal, which inserts in the discipline a paragraph permitting bishops to ap point ministers Indefinitely, on recom mendation of quarterly conference, to gether with the vote of the majority of the presiding elders of the bishop's cabinet. The status of the presiding elders was allowed to remain unchang ed and they will continue to be forced to move at the end of four years. A movement to restrict the eldership ex clusively to four years was defeated. Change \> Creed Demanded. Showing (fle unanimity of the de mand for a change in the creed and other portions ot the ritual where the words 'holy Catholic church" appear, the conference wlthont debate and by a vote of 172 to 76, adopted the committee report recommending the substitution of the words "Church of Christ." The movemont for this change has been before the church for eight years. PERSHING ISSUES MOTHERS' DAY ORDER Gen. John J. Pershing has Issued the following order: "May 8.

C., THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1918 AMERICAN TROOPS USED AS BEFORE SECRETARY BAKER DENIES THAT AMERICAN TROOPS WILL NOT BE USED A 8 BEFORE. AT BEKERJU. FOGHS COMMAND Expedited Movement of Soldiers to France Is Proceeding Accord ing to Program. Washington. American officers were Inclined to characterize reports from London via Ottawa that Amert oan troops would not be used until a complete and powerful American araty Had been developed in France as au echo of the political controversy pre cipitated in England by the Incident of General Maurice. They cou'd see no other explanation since the state ment attributed to the "war commit tee" of the British war cabinet was promptly repudiated by Lord Read ing, British ambassador here, and later declared by Secretary Baker In a for mal statement to be at absolute vari ance with tbe facts as known here. Lord Reading's statement said he was confident no such announcement had been issued with the Knowledge of Premier Lloyd-George, adding that the views of the British government, which he was transmitting, were ex actly opposite. Secretary Baker said American troops were now being used In battle and would continue to be used as the supreme commander, Gen eral Foch, deemed best. Inquiry at the various bureaus of the war department showed that the expedited movement of men to Franco Is proceeding as planned after the an nouncement tbat American units would be brigaded with French and British divisions for Immediate oper ations as well as training. 1 ,' Since the decision to scatter Amor lean battalions or regiments in allied forces was made only because oi the cry for manpower from both thn Brit ish and Fronch governments the German onslaught was battering tho lines In Flanders and Plcardy, officials here were Inclined to find tbe tone of the announcement now attributed to the war cabinet distasteful. The whole American program In France has been subject to revision by rea son of that decision, the effect 'if which was to set aside national pride and the ambitions of American offi cers of high rank In order to furnish Immediate aid. Such sacrifices were not viewed lightly. It Is held, or to bo acceptod or 1 ejected at the whim of the moment in London or elsewhere. Just how this report may relate to the recent political crisis In England, American officers did not undertake to say: They have a strong feeling that English politics Is oehlnd the mys tery, however, and look to the Biit- Ish government to correct promptiv any misapprehension there may be about the n«ed for American aid RAILROAD RATES MAY BE RAISED 25 PER CENT. Waslngton.—Estimates made bj railroad administration officials lndl cate that an an Increase ot at least 26 per cent n freight and passenger rates will be necessary this year to meet the high costs of fuel, wages, equipment and other operating ei' penses, now set at between |600,000,. 000 and $750,000,000 more than last year. Recommendation that rates be rais ed by approximately this percentage has been made to Director General McAdoo by his advisers.| He Is ex pected to act within the next six weeks, and to put Increases Into effect Immediately. Shippers will be per mltted to appeal to the Intrestate commerce commission under the rati road act and final decision will be with the president. Such an increase as Is proposed would be the biggest In the history ol American railways, as the percentage Is larger than any ever sought by the railways under private management, and would apply alike to the entire country. Both class and commodity schedulos would be affected. NATURALIZATION PAPERS CANCELLED AFTER 35 YEARS Newark. N. J—Thirty five years af ter Frederick W.

CAUSER RV SPEARINR RAIL Troops From Jackson Had Just Start ed to Camp Bevler, Greenville, — Military Inquiry Is Stsrted. Columbia, S. C. —Eight soldiers were killed and 26 Injured when a wooden passenger coach carrying members of the 3218t Infantry jumped a trestle at Camp Jackson. The soldiers had just entrained for Camp Sevier at Green ville and the train was pulling out of camp at a very low rate of speed. As It approached a trestle a big steel coach struck a spreading rail. This hurled the wooden coaches Im mediately in front down the em bankmont. A military inquiry Into the cause of the wreck was bogun by a bbard headed by Lieut. Col.

BOATSWAIN IS CITED F0«TH«l . , * HOW JOHN MACKENZIE SAVED THE REMLIK WHEN A DEPTH CHARGE BROKE LOOSE. HE CAPTURED THE BIG BOMB Delivery of Leeomotivea Ordered by Government Starts In July —Ger many Limits Spending Money of American Prisonsrs and Intsrned Civilians. (From CommltU* on Public Information.) Washington.—Many members of the United States army and navy are be ing commended for bravery In action or In emergencies. A typical case Is that of John Mackenzie, chief boat swain's mote, of the naval reserve force, described in a navy department statement. The case Is unique in that It has to do with oue of the latest engines of war. As Is well known, United States destroyers and other submarine fight ers carry depth, churges containing n large amount of high explosives which are dropped In the path of enemy sub marines und under water. These have proved effective weapons In the destruction of U-boats, and they are safe enough when the snfety pins are alflxod; but when tbey get beyond control and Uie safety pin comes out they are n source of serious danger to tbe vessels carrying them. It will be recalled that the men on the U. S. S. Mnnley who lost their lives In tho col lision of that destroyer with a British vessel were killed by the explosion of one of these bombs. In a heavy gale on the morning of December 17, 101T, a depth charge on the Remllk broke loose from Its posi tion on the stern. The box went over board, but the charge was hurled In the opposite direction and went bounc ing about tho deck. As It weighs hun dreds of pounds It wiis ImposKllile for nnyono to lift the bomb and carry It to safety. It was even dangerous for anyone to go to that part of the strip, as the seas were washing over the stern. As the officers and crew watched Iho bomb some one shouted: "The pin's come ont I" Realizing tho danger, Mackenzie, exclaiming, "Watch me; I'" Set It," duelled down tbe deck and flung himself upon the charging cylinder. Three times he almost had his arms about tbe bomb, bnt each time It tore from him, once almost crushing him. The fourth time he got u Arm grip on it and heaved It up right on one flat end. Then he sat on It and held It down. Tho charge might have broken loose again and exploded at any moment, blowing Blackenzle to bits, but bo held on (Irmly uuNl lines could be run to him and innn and lepth bomb safely lushed. Soon after ward the sblp was headed up Into the sea and the charge carried to a place of surety. Tho commanding olllcer of tho Rem llk, In his report recommending that the inedul of honor bo conferred on Mackenzie, says: "Mackenzie, In acting as he did, ex posed his life and prevented a serious accident to the sblp and probable loss of the ship and entire crew. Had this depth charge exploded on the quarter deck with the sea and wind that ex ited ot the time there Is no doubt that tie ship would have been lost." Money Intended for Interned civil tins and prisoners of war In Germany 'hould be remitted through the bureau >f prisoners' relief, American Red 'ross, Washington,'D. C. Remittance). [ o made will probably not be delivered o oddrcssees by the German govern nent In cash, but In the form of credit hi prison exchanges. According to the Spanish nuibassn lor at Berlin, the war department states that there are ho restrictions 'n regard to the remittance of money for civilian and military prisoners. Such money Is placed to prisoners redlt, and may bo spent under the ■dlowlng regulations: "Military prisoners. Sixty marks weekly may be spent by officers snd ■tbers of (linllur rank; M) marks • eekly by non-commissioned officers •nd men. "Civilian prlsonors. Sixty marks veekly for men of better social pcsl lon; HO marks weekly for others." . • A study Is being made of the for iiulae and manufacturing processes of nedlclnes requiring glycerin, and dans for the curtailment of tbe quan tity now used In case It becomes uec •ssary will be submitted to the general medical board of the Council of Nu tlonal Defense. It Is announced In the Bohemian press tbat experiments made with "paper clolh" have proved so success ful that Hungarian state railways afe to furnish their employees with sum | mer clothing of this fabric. In Its regulations governing tin prlee of wool the war industries board allows dealers to make a charge of three per cent of the selling price j If the wool Is not graded, and 314 ff j cent It graded. This commission Is to j cover all storage, cartage and Insur- j a nee. An additional credit of *8,290,000 J has been extended to Belgium by tbe United S»otes. making a total of 1101,- j 850.000 loaned to that country, aiyfl credits to all the allies »f1.258.H.V),000. | Delivery of the first of tbe I.CUS locomotives ordered by the railroad administration will start In July, and deliveries will continue monthly during tbe rest of the year. The locomotives | are of six standard types, with one | heavy and oue light style la eacff type, j They vary In weight from 290,000 | pounds to MO.OOO pounds, and the en tire order will cost about SOO/100,000. The six standard types are expected to eventually supersede the many kinds now In service, which embrace en vines built according to 500 or more " « «»■ specifications. According to tne rail road administration, this la the flrat real atep ever taken toward the wide standardization of locomotives. An order has also been placed for 100,000 freight car* of standard type to coat between *200,000,000 and *300,- 000,000. Negotiations for the construc tion of many thousand additional steel freight cars are still pending. The five types of cars ordered represent the standard forms of freight cars adopted by the railroad administration. The adoption of these standard types, It is believed, will eventually substitute a few scientifically worked out designs for the numerous miscel laneous varieties of cars, representing probably more than a thousand differ ent old styles and specifications now In use, the accumulations of the past. Before an airplane can be put Into military service It must be equipped with at least nine delicate aeronautic Instruments, some of which are abso lutely essential to exact Hying, and all contribute to the successful operation of a plane. One gives the pilot his lo cation as to height and direction; oth ers tell his s|>eed through the (llr, the speed of his propeller, the amount of gasoline carried, water temperature, operation of the oiling system, and tsulde his "banking" on turns. An other necessary article Is the oxygen supplying apparatus, without which an aviator could not climb to any great height. For operation of actual combat planes, such as observing, photograph ing, bombing, and lighting planes, other complicated and expensive In struments and seta of apparatus are necessary. Among them are machine guns, gun mounts, bomb racks, bomb dropping devices, bomb sights, radio and photographic apparatus, electri cally heated clothing, lights and flares. These bring the total cost of equip ment for an airplane to several thou sand dollars each, depending upon A* type of plane. Nearly 2,000 types and slies of farm Implements which have been gradually developed by manufacturers during peace-time competition have been rec ommended for elimination during the war by committees of the National Im plement and Vehicle association. The object, nccordlng to a statement by the tJouncll of National Defense, Is to conserve materials, labor, capital, and manufacturing facilities war use. In the report of the committee meet ings to the commercial economy board of the Council of Nutional Defense It was slated that no machinery recom mended for discard was believed to be necessary to modern economical agri culture. The lines considered By the committees consisted of steel and chilled plows, grain drills, seeders, and other Ullage Implements and farm cul tivators. Such of the recommendations as the board deems suitable, with others from different sources, are being brought to the attention of all Implement manu facturers and Jobbers, and as many re tafl dealers as may be reached, through questionnaires. A number of high-grade news pho tographers are urgently needed by tife signal corps. Theso men must have expert experience In the handling of speed cumeras, such as Oraflex, Graphic, and also understand speeds of lenses and various makes of cam eras and operation of some. Only those men who can furnish references as lo their actual experience as news photographers will receive considera tion. , The men selected for this branch of the so IT Ice will ho sent to a school for military training. Upon completion of the training they will be promoted to grades of sergeant, first class, and will be ordered overseas Is a short time.
