London, June 13 (British Admiralty
per wireless Press). -Private letters
from Germany, which haye fallen into
allied hands indicate the heavy weight
which the war has imposed, upon the
poor in that country. Anxiety for
peace finds frequent expressions as
well as anger with the militarist ele
ment In the nation.
"We hope that peace will cdme
soon," writes a man from Berlin, "for
if the war lasts much longer then the
people here will make peace. Twice
already there have been small riots,
but when the third comes it won't go
well with the rich people. For the poor
there is so little food that , they can
hradly live, while the tich people
nave stores laid up for years. Poor
people are only fit to be shot. The
men in the field suffer for the rich
and we have to go hungry."
Along the same lines a man from
central Germany writes:
"If the rich had nothing to eat as
we poor people have, the war would
soon come to an encT."
Many of the letters return again and
cotton again to attacks on the militarists and
the junkers of Germany who are held
responsible for the continuation of the
war and the consequent misery of the
"As long as the militarists insist
'the fatherland must be greater
there wirkbe no peace," writes a wom
an from Stettin, and disgust with the
methods of the pan-Germans is,, a
strong note iri letters from all parts
of the country.

Occurred in the" Smith- Creek
. Yards of , Atlantic Coast
Line Railway Co.
Frank Saunders, efght years old, son
of Mr. and Mrs. James C.. Saunders,
315 North Seventh street, was- drown
ed in a clinker pit on the Smith creek
yards of the Atlantic Coast Line Rail
way company, about noon today, and
his body fished put of tae pit by his
father, an employe of the car repair
department of the railway company.
The remains were viewed by Coroner
Alex S. Holden, who was carried to
the scene in the police patrol by Ser
geant Joe Lane, who authorized that
they be prepared for burial. When
the coroner arrived the body had al
ready .been recovered and removed to
the yard office.
The little fellow had carried . his
father's dinner and was returning
home when he fell into the pit, built
inside the rails, and used for cleaning
the clinkers from engines. There was
about nine feet of water in the pit
and while no one, saw the youngster
go to his death the presumption is
that he was walking with the careless
abandon ot youth and unknowingly
stepped into the abyss from which he
was later drawn with a hook, held in
the hands of his father. The dinner
pail, floating on the surface Of the
water, attracted attention, and Mr.
Saunders was sent for. He secured
a hook and without any effort at all
succeeded in hooking it in the clothes
of his boy.

NATION PLANS FOR
LONG, BITTER WAR
(Continued from Page One.)
The new scheme of the war depart
ment is to bring back experienced
officers from the front in , regular re
lays for the work of training new sol
diers In this country, and fill their
places with untried holders of commis
sions. Thi sarrangement, it is be
lieved, will son give the United
Statesa very large force of thoroughly
tested officers who have had ample
opportunity o supplement theories
with actual experience on the firing
The war department's thoroughly
apparent plans to increase the Ameri
can army much faster than was orig
inally Intended is shown in Provost
Marshal General CrowdeVs announce

are not dependent upon them for sup

men for special service are being cull

that covers' all men, in or-cmt of the
army, affected by the draft law.
It may be noted that Chairman Hur
ley, of the shipping 'board, in his
speech at South Bend on Monday dis
cussed plans for his department during
and beyond 1920. Secretary of State
Lansing, in the speech he made Tues
daiy at Schenectady, laid special em

would carry the war against eGrmany
