London, Jan. 24.-Arab activity
against the Turks in the Palestine
theatre of war is expected to show
considerable results during the next
few months. An official report on the
Arab exploits against the Turks dur-
ing the first six weeks of General Al-
lenby's offensive in Palestine shows
that the tribesmen confined themselves
principally to raids on the Hedjaz
railway, extending apparently from
Doraa to Mann.
This railway, at least in the part at-
tacked, is not a line of communica-
tion with Palestine but with Arabia.
That the Arabs have shown a dispo-
sition to cut what is in some sense a
sacred railway is interesting, but that
they were not able to venture cn more
than sporadic forays seemed to indi-
cate that their strength was not great.
Meanwhile the Turks were able to
-keep Medina without apparent diffi-
culty, in spite of the efforts of the king
of the Hedjaz.
Reasons For Weakness
The explanation for this Arab weak-
ness is apparently partly their an-
cient tribal quarrels and partly the
uncertainty of the military situation,
which has now been made secure by
the British occupation of Jerusalem.
An effort was made last March to
bring about Arap operations on a
large scale timed to coincide with Brit-
ish operation, but the effort ?ailed ow-
ing to the defection of one of the lead-
ing chiefs, the head of the Schaamar
tribe. The support of this tribe en-
abled the Turks to maintain them-
selves at Medina and keep the Hed-
jaz line open. But the pro-Turkish
Schaamar chief was killed a few weeks
ago, and the tribe appears to be now
on the point of rejoining the king of
Arabs Expected To Rally
The further the Turks are driven
back. by the British under General
Allenby, the more the Arab tribes, are
expected to rally to the victor. Once
the Hedjez railway is permanently
cut, it is declared, all Arabia will be
lost to the Turks. The left flank of
the British army in Mesopotamia is
raade secure, probably , jeopardizing
large Turkish forces.
The Qerman peace offer at Brest-
Litovsk is taken by students of East-
err affairs to indicate Germany's rec-
ognition of the importance of the Brit-
ish threat in the East. In fact, it has
been frequently stated that the mili-
tary importance of the British eastern
victories is far more generally recog-
nized in Germany than in England or

Local business men do not favor
the seven-hour working day- for lab-
orers, which Samuel Gompers, presi-
dent of the American Federation of
Labor, is advocating.
The. Hoover company had not heard
of Mr. Gompers' statement, and none
of the laborers in the plant seemed
anxious to follow out the idea. "A.
seven-hour day for the working man,"
said one of the officers of the company,
"would mean that we would have to
work two or three shifts a day, which
we could, not afford to do. Fu ther--
