Washington, D. C., Feb. 14.-(Spec-
ial.)--Seven committees to have charge
of the seven principal branches of
American industrial resources were
named today by the council of national
defense in furtherance of the plan to
prepare the industrial resources of
the United States for war.
The chairman of each of these com-
mittees is a member. of the advisory
committee of the council. Each chair-
man will choose his own assistants
and each will work out the particular
problems of his own branch of the
The plans of the councilof national
defense are now well under way. The
meetings which started yesterday will
continue until every large problem
that is before the committee has been
solved. After this the chairman of the
committees will continue to work out
the details, it being the intention to
perfect all the plans to such a minute
detail that all the factories in the Unit-
ed States which are needed for muni-
tions will become munitions factories
an hour after a declaration of war.
German System Cited
At today's meeting Brig. Gen. Joseph
E. Kuhn, president of the army war
college, outlined his experiences as
military observer with the German-
army in the present war. Gen. Kuhn
has had an unusual opportunity to
observe the manner in which the Ger-
man government makes war and he
laid particular stress in his address
to the council on those features of
Germandactivities which had to do
with industrial preparedness.
Daniel Willard, president of the B.
and 0. railroad, and a members of the
advisory committee, reported that the
railroads of the country had agreed on
a plan of preparingthe transportation
resources of the country by which the
railroads will co-operate closely with
the four departments of the army in
transportating troops and supplies in
time of war.
Seek to Standardize Drugs
The committee on standardization of
medical and surgical supplies and
equipment reported to the council to-
day that it soon would call into con-
ference a number of manufacturers of
drugs, instruments, hospital supplies,
etc., for the purpose of standardizing
the articles necessary to the medical
department in time of war.
It is expected that such action will
decrease the cost of such articles and
also will make certain of their rapid
production if war comes.

Sausage-skins Jeans 'Edict of Dame
Fashion for Sprightly Ones;
Shoulder Pads Feature
Philadelphia, Feb. 14.-At the first
day's session of the annual conven-
tion of the National Association of
Merchant Tailors today, many prob-
lems were discussed by the 400 dele-
The main points brought out of but-
tonholing of the dictators of styles in
men's clothes by the satellites of less
fame were the condemnation of the
Prince Albert coat and the general
plan to narrow the legs of trousers.
To the first edict the tailors said they
expected little objection, as the fash-
ion in coats has been drifting steadily
to the sack variety for several years.
The tightening of trouser legs they
fear will meet with serious objection,
especially on the part of their stout
customers. The extremely narrow
cut proposed, it was said by a prom-
inent delegate, will compel some up-
to-the-minute dressers to have them-
solves literally poured into the cov-
erning of their neither extremities.
Blue pique evening dress vests con-
stitute another innovation the lords
of the yardstick and scissors will at-
tempt to get past the censor. Black
vests for evening wear no longer will
be tolerated. Lapels of coats will be
narrower and vests will be cut much
lower. Much padding of the shoulders

ATTACKS U. S. STAND
Dr. Edmund von Mach States Amer-
lea Inconsistent in Ger-
In a bitter letter addressed to the
citizens of the United States, Dr.
Edmund von Mach of Cambridge, an
American citizen and a graduate of
Harvard, attacks the policy of the
government in breaking off diplomatic
relations with Germany as being in-
consistent and unsportsmanlike. He
attacks the national defense program
of congress as a program of defense
for office holders and a useless
squandering of the people's money.
The letter closes by warning the citi-
zens to read once more the constitu-
tion, and to use all his facilities in
preventing the formation of an
Dr. von Mach states that both the
English order of Nov. 2, 1914, and the
German order of Jan. 31, 1917, were
in wanton disregard of our rights, but
both should receive the same treat-
ment. He says that he has been at-
tempting for the last year to send
milk to the babies of Germany, but
has been prevented by the president,
and he claims that the United States
would probably adopt the same mode
of warfare if she found herselfin the
same predicament that Germany is in.
He asks every American citizen to do
all in his power to prevent war with
Germany and the formation of an
autocracy in which one man can say,
"Now you must go to war."

Springfield, Ill., Feb. 14.-The sen-
ate judiciary committee reported fa-
vorably on the three bills for the
abolition of capital punishment in Il-
linois by a vote of 6 to 5.
There is now a prospect that the

will get through the house. They
provide that the penalty for murder,
treason and kidnapping be changed
from death to life imprisonment.

DEFICIT OF 295 MILLIONS
IN NEW REVENUE ENACTMENT
Senate Committee Forecasts Deficit
of Nearly Million
Washington, Feb. 14.-A treasury
deficit of $333,400,000 at the end of
the next fiscal year is forecast in a
report submitted by the senate finance
committee, recommending that the
administration revenue bill be amend-
ed to authorize a bond issue of $195,-
256,000 instead of $100,000,000, and
that the authorization for certificates
of indebtedness be made $500,000,000
instead of $300,000,000.
The recommendation for increases
is based on revised treasury depart-
ment estimates submitted to congress
since the bill passed the house, plac-
ing the federal government's expend-
itures for the fiscal year 1918 at $1,-
400,000,000. The committee estimates
that to meet this total and provide a
working balance the amount . which
must be raised by bonds and new rev-
enue legislation is $433,400,000. This
the committee proposes to raise as
By bond .issues: For expenditures
on account of Mexican situation to
June 30, 1917, $162,418,000; for con-
struction of Alaskan railway to June
30, 1918, $21,838,000; for construction
of armor plate plant, $11,000,000;
making a total bond issue of $195,-
By new taxation: An excess profits
tax, $226,000,000; inheritance tax in-
creases, $22,000,000 making a total of
$248,000,000, and a grand total from
new taxes and bonds of $443,256,000,
or $9,856,000 in excess of absolute
The bill probably will be brought
up in the senate Friday.
PLANS LARGE UNIVERSITY
With an endowment of 2,500,000
acres of land and liberal financial
backing, the Nicaraguan government

The university will be composed of
five colleges, and is to be modeled
after the average American univer-
GRAIN EXCHANGE SHOWS SLUMP
Elevators Unable to Ship Due to Em-
Chicago, Feb. 14.-The announce-
jnent of the closing down of five ele-
vators having a capacity of 7,000,000
bushels, by the J. Rosenbaum Grain
company here shortly before noon,
caused a sharp break in all grains on
the grain exchange. May wheat
dropped two cents, July three cents,
and September two and one-half
cents. Corn and oats also tumbled.
Along with the announcement of
Rosenbaum came the news that half
a dozen other elevators would close.
They were filled with grain and can-
not ship. The Wabash railroad joined
other eastern lines and placed an em-
bargo on all grain shipments to Chi-
cago and east this morning. Traffic
conditions were characterized as "rot-
ten" by grain men. Cars cannot be
secured at any price. A complete de-
moralization of the grain market will
follow, they assert, unless relief is
forthcoming. The German submarine
embargo is blamed.
NAVY COMMISSION URGES
WESTERN SUBMARINE BASES
Washington, Feb. 14.-Establish-
ment of a submarine training base in
Los Angeles harbor and of a subma-
rine war operating base at San Diego
is recommended in a report of the
special navy commission, headed by
Rear Admiral Helm, made public to-
day by the navy department.
Montreal Contributes to National Fund
Montreal, Que., Feb. 14.-The board
of control this morning decided to
make a grant of $1,000,000 to the na-
tional patriotic fund. This is double
the amount given to the fund last year
and practically assures that the
amount of $2,500,000 aimed at as Mon-
treal's share will be largely exceeded.
