WAR DOUBLES TIN PRICE
Cnlted States Now Has Chance to
Refine Bolivian Ore.
The outbreak of the European war
has caused the New York price of tin
to rise to 65 cents a pound, although
in the latter part of July tin was sold
as low as 30.5 cents a pound. None of
the European countries make a pro
duction which would greatly affect
market values, and the disturbance of
price is due mostly to the Insecurity of
ocean freights which are carried very
largely in English or German bottoms
The known American tin deposits are

exceedingly high prices if tTiese are

FOOD ISSUE FIRST
Starvation of England Means
NATION HAS NO SURPLUS
"Englishmen Will Have to Work
Long Hours for Low Wages If
Enemy Trlnmphs," Member of
Parliament Warns People.
LONDON. Aug. 14. The food ques
tion overshadows almost every other
consideration in the European war. As
far as England is concerned, it was
pointed out two years ago by George
Renwick, a member of Parliament,
in a speech before the Royal United
Service Institution that the United
Kingdom never had on hand more than
six weeks', suppllea of wheat and flow
or more than two weeks' supplies of
meat. He said that these were peril
ously small stocks to have in reserve-
and advised that the navy put itself
in position to guarantee protection to
the British merchant marine.
"An increase of only 5 pounds a
quarter 640 pounds) in the wheat we
use." he said, "means tne price oi
about 12 dreadnoughts or first-class
cruisers, which are. after all, the
cheapest and best instruments for in
suring free navigation. Britain has
had undisputed command ot tne sea
for 100 years but now other nations
are challenging her supremacy.
No Surplus Supplies on Hand.
"Owing to the facility with which
cargoes can now be brougnt to our
shores in times of peace large surplus
supplies are no longer kept in stock,
as was formerly the case. Any in
terruption of these supplies, as has
been vividly shown during the sailors'
nd railroad mens strikes, wnicn
lasted only a few days, would soon
bring our people to the verge of star
vation. This question is a mater of
life and death to our country.
Lord Ellenborough on this occasion
added: "The starvation of England
means abject surrender. The poor win
lose their freedom; the rich will lose
their wealth. In future Englishmen
will have to work for long hours and
low wages, and the conditions of peace
should the enemy trlump would be
such as to leave It open to the other
belligerents to threaten ua a second
time with starvation. Parts of Essex
and Kent would be turned Into an Al
sace and Lorraine."
With England annually doing a
world trading business amounting to
$5,442,055,000 and Importing grain and
flour to the extent of $360,040,000 each
year the importance of her merchant
marine Is easily seen. Tet as the war
progresses fewer and fewer shipown
ers will be found to undertake traf
fic In spite of the risks of war.
Restaurant Prices Not Yet Higher.
Restaurant prices have not advanced
yet. and every kind of rood is stni
abundant. The newspapers are urging
all householders not to embarrass the
tradesmen by ordering unusual sup
plies. Inquiries from leading American re
tailers show the following advances
in prices Saturday, compared to two
weeks ago: Bacon, from 19 cents to
33 cents; steaks, prime, 27 cents to
39 cents; cheese, no change; eggs, new
laid 40 cents to 62 cents dozen; eggs,
Imported, 33 cents to 50 cents; hams,

was so close and fierce that It was not
possible to carry out this intention un
til the afternoon.
"The battle on this day, the 26th, was
of a most severe and desperate char
acter. The troops offered a superb and
most stubborn resistance to the tre
mendous odds with which they were
confronted, and at length extricated
themselves in good order, though with
serious loss and under the heaviest
artillery fire. No guns were taken by
the enemy except those the horses of
which had all been killed or which
were shattered by high explosive shells.
"General French estimates that dur
ing the whole of these operations from
the 23d to the 26th Inclusive, his losses
amounted to from 5000 to 8000 men
while, on the other hand, the losses suf
fered by the Germans in their attacks

Men Mowed Down In Streets.
"In Landrecies alone, on the 25th, as

from many like It, was the charge of
the German Guard cavalry division

gade, when the German cavalry was
thrown back with great losses and in

examples of what has taken place over
practically the whole front during the
engagements, and the Germans have
been made to pay the extreme price

"Today the news is again favorable.
The British have not been engaged, but
the French armies, acting vigorously
on the right and left, have, for the

"Sir John French also reports that
on the 28th the British Fifth Cavalry
Brigade fought In brilliant fashion with
German cavalry, in the course of which
the Twelfth Lancers and the Royal
Scots Grays routed the enemy and
speared a large number in flight.
"It must be remembered throughout
that operations in France are vast and
that we are only on one wing of the
whole field of battle. This strategic
position of ourselves and our allies is
such that decisive victories of our
armies in France probably would be
fatal to the enemy, while a continu

DUMA HAS AIDED REFORM
System of Co-operation Between
i Popular Body and Government
Ha Resulted In Rational
Programme of Defense.
LONDON, Aug. 16. The mobilization
of the Russian army, say military men
here, is complete, or nearly so. It was
estimated in the beginning that it
would require 26 days to complete this
difficult task. Distances in Russia are
enormous, the railway system is as yet
comparatively undeveloped and many of
the reservists had to come from vil
lages situated at long distances from
the railway or from a river.
The reservist is allowed as much as
nine days to settle up his affairs and
make the Journey to his headquarters.
And all the army corps of the eastern
regions had to be brought to the west.
The meager reports that have come
through from Russia mention the en
thusiasm that has attended the mobili
zation. During the mobilization for
the war with Japan there were sad
scenes, for the reservists were off to
distant Siberia and to a war which
nobody really understood. Now the
concentration is toward the very heart
of Russia and is directed against an in
Duma Aids Reorganization.
The reorganization of the Russian
army nas bjceti thorough and effective.
The defeat in the Far Bast showed the
many shortcomings of the military au
thorities. The strong nationalist move
ment that started in 1907 naturally lm
pllod an emphasis on this question of
the national defense.
The third Duma, which began its ses
sion in 1907, was strongly conservative
and nationalistic. It supported the
government In almost all questions of
internal administration, and particu
larly In this mattor of national dofense.
The representatives of the army and
navy departments were ready and
eager to make use of the Duma for the

The Duma was able to exert much in

The work of this committee on na
tlonal defense was well summarized
by one of its members and its official
spokesman. Some of the statements
made by Mr. Zvegintsev are of pecu
liar interest when the Russian army
Is entering the conflict.
The committee evolved a system of
co-operation between the duma and
the government which made it possible
for the duma to accept responsibility
for the measures taken for national
defense. The subjects chiefly dls
cussed by the committee were ques
tlons arising from tho strategical po
sition of the Russian army, which nat
urally raised all other questions that
concerned national defense, inc van
ous ministries co-operated by supply

very simple," reads the summary. "On

lines, that nearest to the frontier be

right were some coast guard vessels
and torpedo-boats, with two cruising
Bquadrons far out In the Atlantic and
the Pacific, always kept at about the
same strength by sending out new
ships and recalling older ones.
Why Defeat Was Met in East.
"This simple system, however, be
gan to change as goon as a new direc
tion had been given to the political
action of Russia in the Far East.
Whatever may have been the alms of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the
Ministry of War did not regard the
Far Eastern policy otherwise than as
a colonial enterprise, and never ar
ranged the system of defense so as to
suit the new conditions. The Admir
alty, too. made only the slightest
changes of detail. It replaced one of
the squadrons of cruisers by a squad
ron of battleships. Nothing but catas
trophe could be anticipated, and the
catastrophe came in 1904.
"The first Russian troops to come
on the field of battle were taken from
the reserve, and in the first fighting
the Japanese devislon of the guards
was faced only by Russian reservists,
mostly drawn from the older reserve,
which as regards training was no
more than a kind of militia. The fleet
was never concentrated during the
war, and those ship which ultimately
in different batches came into touch
with the enemy were either sunk or
"The time of revolution which fol
lowed the war was certainly not one

both the government and the duma
were faced with the necessity of evolv
ing some new plan of defense out of
the torn and shattered fragments.
They found an absence of a common
responsibility in army organization,
many departments being, in fact, quite
irresponsible to. the Minister of War;
several of these departments were di
rected by persons whose birth put
them above the law."
Old System Strongly Entrenched.
The duma found it difficult to at
tack the existing system. The Rus
sian array had four members of the
imperial family in charge of different
branches of its administration whose
positions made it Impossible to secure
any full responsibility in the Minister
or any unity in the organization. In
a brilliant speech the leader of the
duma called on these men' to resign
from office. The Minister of War was
forced to resign, but his successor, the
present Minister, with able assistant
Ministers, drew up a thorough scheme

that its resolutions be observed. It
followed the carrying out of the pro

that each step should in Itself offer
definite results, and should mark a
given progress in the improvement of
the national defense.
It was a bold step that the duma
took here. The conditions that had
prevailed In these departments were
shown up by the recent war. The pre

of Russia's armed forces had

It was not claimed by the duma

the worst features of the old system
had been done away with. And they
had the assurance that the technical
reforms advocated had been actually
