"You must shut up the hornets in their nest," Mr. Daniels quotal the president ns having said in a quarterdeck speech to officers of the battleship Pennsylvania, early in the war, "for you never, can end the submarine peril if you let them out and then have to i devote yourselves to chasing -them al over the ocear.."

C.—Dr. Wilheim Mayer, German charge d'affaires "ire-Paris,, left Berlin for .Paris with formal instruc- | tions to accept the allied note demancl- - ing extradition of persons accused of ' war crimes, says a dispatch from the German capital by .way of Basle. The German 1 government has'sum- moned the chiefs of -the various- parties in the national assembly to convene Saturday,'to discuss the question. Meanwhile, the dispatch adds", the government expects to be in possession ; of the exact text of the allied notes ' • without which no decision -can be ' j taken. . j ; Disapprove of Lersner. I I The German government disapproves of'the attitude of Baron Kurt von t'ersner in his refusal to transmit the 1 list of .Germans demanded for extradition to his government, "it was said by Foreigu Minister Miller to M. Du •Marcilly, the French charge d'affaires in Berlin. . Doctor Mayer, who returned 'to. Germany after presenting'himself to Premier Millerand recently, was summoned to Berlin from Munich by nil urgent call, after the resignation of Baron.voii Lersner. . . . What amounted to virtually-a new note was sent to Berlin by, the- allies to be presented to'tlie German government with the list of persons accused of war crimes, besides the original covering letter drawn up to accompany the list. The suggestion has been- made in official circles here that if the Germans resist surrender of the accused, the latter may be tried by default. It Is pointed out that while most of them never would undergo.the penalties imposed by the court, it would be impossible for them to leave Germany except for neutral countries. Might Prolong Occupation. Prolonged occupation of the" "left bank of the Ithine in case of refusal by the Germans to give up the acchsed is another suggestion made, it being recalled that the clause of the treaty relating to occupation provides the allied troops be withdrawn by stages, terminating the occupation in 15 years providing all clauses of the treaty are executed. Otherwise occupation maybe prolonged indefinitely. This menace is- counted upon to cause the German government to re-, fleet before breaking any clause..- The menace might or might not be carried out, but it Is pointed out it would.pre- vent the Germans from considering nonexecutlon of the extradition clause as a precedent for resisting the other clauses of the treaty. It was stated at the foreign- 'Office that the list of accused probably would be delivered to the German government either by M. De Marcilly, the French charge d'affaires in Berlin, or Lord Kilnmrnock, the British charge, who is dean of the diplomatic officers .In Berlin. It was said also that any list given out in Berlin up to the present could not: be considered official.

' Business^-., Gold London, Feb. 0.—The foreign exchange situation was eagerly discussed in all quarters of the city, and pond- ing official action the .market for continental exchange remained feverish. Exchange on Paris was quoted at 48 francs 70'centimes and on Brussels'at 47 francs 90 centimes, a shade worse than yesterday. New York exchange, however, was steadier, opening at ?3.22 and- gradually improving to $3.23^, at which the business was smaller. Opinion in financial circles seems to be that an international conference may decide upon the granting of credits for European countries to set the wheels of commerce in motion, the guarantors agreeing to abstain from Better tojhaye Insurance and not need it,jj than to need it and not have it CARBONDALE INSURANCE AGENCY.

There were indications that the government here rather was inclined to feel that the president should have been advised of Viscount Grey's expressions before they were published. FRENCH RAIL STRIKE FEB. 10 Workers Threaten to Go Out if mands Are Not Met—Cite H. C. of L. De- Paris, Feb. G.—A general strike on French railroads on February 10 if unions' demands are not met is probable as a result of a three-day meeting of the allied council of railroad workers in this city.

No! "Auto" Track is Not Narrow Track In talking with one of our customers about the Studebaker "auto" track wagons, we uncovered a surprising notion of his: That notion—in his mind a firm belief—was that "auto" track wagons are the northern narrow track wagons. He was far from the actual facts, because "auto" track is neither narrow nor wide track- "Auto" >track is a standardized width, developed to fit the tracks or ruts made by automobiles —every one of which makes-a track 56 inches wide. . ' When standardization "was*first consi^ereU r by the wagon manufacturers of both the south and the north, it was recognized that the constantly increasing number or automobiles were making, and would continuCto make, the tracks on practically every road in the country. These manufacturers foresaw the necessity of building wagons to fit this track. They'saw the advantage to wagon users of being able to follow such roads without bumping, but-running easily and . smoothly''in the established tracks, .affording longer wagon service and doing away with the strain imposed on horses 1 pulling ..a wagon that would not fit the roads. Come in and examine our Studebaker "auto^ track wagons. Have us show you by actual .measurement —in case you, too, have had the wrong idea—that "auto" track is not nair"ow track. _. H. O, HALL & CO.
