With the material resources of the whole world arrayed against her because of her enemies' capacity to draw from all sources, Germany has made a wonderful stand. ; But the time is now come when ths dis parity tells, and tells severely, against her. The German class of recruits for 1919, for Instance, already has been called up. The French class of 1919 is still to be called. Probably France is really in a worse way for man power than Germany; but France has allies able to save her from ths ut most immediate sacrifice, ' Germany has not. Enormous Gold Exports. Germany is putting her last ounos of strength into the struggle. .Almost simultaneously with the announce ment that the class of 1913 had been called up there came the admission that in one week $20,900,000 of gold had been exported from Germany to neutral countries, being very much the largest amount sent out in any single week. Both these details are of ths most profound significance. Again, travelers recently in Ger many agree in saying that Immense numbers of keels have been laid in German shipyards for vessels . which work is suspended and is likely to be suspended Indefinitely. - There is neither labor nor money nor materials to carry it on. The supply of mills is fast becoming exhausted, - and the proud armies of Hindenburg have dug themselves into the ground, not be cause they are afraid,- not because they are so hopelessly overmatched In numbers that they dare not. at tempt to fight, but because they must not use munition in quantities to match its consumption by their enemies. Transportation Grave Problem. The world has been rallied under the leadership of British and Ameri can influences and with ths guar antee of British and American wealth, to sustain the cause of the allies. Ths problem of transportation continues to be the sravest on the side of the allies. Just as that of physical supplies is much the gravest on the side of the Central powers. The Germans appar ently have procured sufficient sup plies of petroleum from Roumanla and possibly from Russia itself to make them safs, with economy, in this regard for several months. But they cannot produce iron and steel, fast enough nor can they fabricate them Into weapons of fighting and transport them as rapidly as they are needed. The allies found it possible to go out In ths distant parts of ths world and pull up thousands of miles of railroad tracks to bring rails and loco motives and cars to ths fighting areas. Germany had no such resources on which to draw. Ths allies control tho copper, sine lead ana mcsei oi tns world and these are absolute essen tials In carrying on ths mechanical business of war. While Germany ,ls pulling down the chimes from Its church towers Britain is carrying on whimsical debate as to whether church bells Ought to bo allowed to ring In view of the fact that they di- iuro ins rest ox convalescent aoiawre. America's Weight Heartens. It can hardly be doubted that to day Britain to the best fed belliger ent country ' la Europe, - and quite probably its supplies for the coming year are mors safely assured than those of any other belligerent. Of (Special Correspondence.) LONDON, July 23. There no long er can be uncertainty among people who have had opportunity to follow this year's development of German thought and internal conditions that the war is beginning to tell seriously on the country. It is not that Germany is threat ened with such an economic collapse as to rander it Incapable of continu ing to carry on the struggle. But it is, and it decidedly la. that Germany nears the point where she is likely to be hopelessly overborne and crowd ed down by the superiority of her ene yyiIm nmnomio caDacities. nnrmanv had "the Jump" on her enemies at the beginning of the war in regard to military preparation. But her enemies this good year 1917 are getting "the Jump" on Germany at a tremendous rate in ths matter of eco nomic capacity. 1 Not long ago In a talk about condi tions in Germany, contrasting them with conditions in the allied coun tries, ths British minister of munitions referred to the fact that his depart ment has information concerning many difficulties Germany confronts in getting essential supplies, no uiu not go into details. It is known, how ever, that the resourcefulness and in genuity of German science are now having the severest test that has ever been Imposed on -them. f v Counted on Short Straggle. When the war started Germany had In sight and well In hand the material with which to equip and bring into action for a short, decisive struggle, the full military potentiality of the empire. ' Nobody in Germany doubted that such an overwhelming force, al most instantly projected tnto the con flict would bring decision. every thing in German preparation was based on the .Idea of the tiger's leap; of doing the thing with supreme, I overmastering power all In an in-, tant. of crushing down opposition . and then making Germany's enemies pay tiie Dills ana a kuuu uwu uiuio. It took Germany forty years to get ready for this contest, and the people who even today most wonder at Ger many's failure are those who know most shout Germany's preparations and her enemies' lack of preparations. The true story of how Europe man aged to save itself, largely through German blunders, has' not yet been written. Much or it is utterly oe yond understanding; when it is writ ten there undoubtedly will be some amazing chapters in it. Military men believe that ths first vital blunder was made in ths opening weeks of the war whan German armies concentrat d against Paris fell into the trap which was laid- by General Gallien, wars checked at the Marne, and then delayed too long another effort to seiss Calais.1 !: --...'..":.'. " -. Blunders at Very Outset. There is some reason to believe that a considerable element of the German strategical authority believed, after August 4, 1914, that H was more important tq seise Calais than to take Paris. But the German rulers wsrs determined to taks Paris first, to have a grand triumphal entry prepared for ths army-oi ins crown pnnoe, ana then at leisure clean up tho - 'coast, take Calais,, and hold Great Britain at arm's length until Russia could be conquered, and then Britain subdued at leisure. : All this, as yet, is mere speculatlea. 1 - 4 The point is that blunders at the beginning ' or ths war robbed thing else has cast weight into the scale against Germany la the appear ance of America in the war. Despite every effort of the German govern ment through the controlled press to minimise the significance of America's accession, ths German people are somewhat realising what has happen ed to them, i The thing has put con fidence and spirit into ths British, ths French and the Italian people. If Russia "comes back" and ends ths war with a One burst of power and efficiency It will be very largely due to ths influence of American ex ample. To a considerable extent Germany is naturally a less productive country agriculturally than Great Britain; far less fertile than 'France. In the last weeks of ths old crop year the Ger man people have been screwed down to the very minimum of life s sustain ing rations. Even the soldiers have had their allowance sharply reduced according o reports from their prisoners, while in great num bers of Industrial centres workers have engaged in "stop in" strikes: refusing to work although remaining in the shops and insisting that they be provided with adequate food be fore resuming operations. Rural Districts Suffer. This has had a curious result Ths authorities, desperately determined to keep the wheels of industry moving. nave gone out ana remorselessly re quisitioned supplies from ths agri cultural community, where mors or less1 hoarding has been going on, tak ing them into the towns and thus leaving the agrarian population for tne nrst time seriously to realise what It la to feel hunger. Having set up and operated the machinery by which this can be accomplished. Germany will be compelled from this time for ward to use that machinery more ana more insistently. Ths situation in rural Germany has for a year past been Just about as bad as it possibly could be without putting an end to production. Labor has been scarce, skilled labor still mors so, horses are not to be had for ploughing, fertilizers ars almost un known, machinery is wearing out and cannot be replaced. All these conditions are eomolf- cated by the fact that the 1918-17 cropping season has been one of re markable and widespread - disaster. The winter was unprecedently long ana severe, the summer has been marked by droughts which when broken by terrific hailstorms and del uges of rain that have dons mors harm than could have been accom plished by a continuance of ths drought - The people nave been worn down to the point of physical incapacity for ths most effective work. Of this there can be no doubt whatever. The testi monies come from all sources; from letters found in ths German trenches: from correspondence . that gets past ths borders and gives the outside world occasional glimpses of the real situation in Germany; from all the neutral countries adjacent to Ger many, and finally, from ths outbreaks SHOES v Mighty cheap now at our sale going on at the WAYNESViLLE BOY IS RELEASED FROM ARMY Habeas corpus proceedings before Judge Joseph T.
