n the British note, the citation of sta
istics showing large increases in the
commerce of the United States with
eutrals of Kurope. was regarded here
irrelevant and misleading. Govern
ment officials say these increases are
tie largely to the fact that prices o
American commodities have risen, and
eutral countries are unable to get
from the belligerent countries contigu
us to them, many of the ordinary
necessities of life.
The British note, for example, re
ferred to the great Increase in copper
xports from the United States to Italy
It was stated at the Italian embassy
here that Italy, on several occasions
had explained to Great Britain the rea
son for this increase in her own in-
bility to import copper for manu
facturers from Germany or Austria.
Similarly, Itjtl7 now buys corn and
beat from'Idie United States. where
previously she obtained such from
Roumania and Bulgaria. Administra

ral commerce has profited by the
scarcity of ships which will risk the

There is no sympathy in official quar

the united States had made the sltua

American shippers asked for this
change to protect their trade secrets
and it is contended that a mere exam

that the United States will continue to

On the contrary, it is impossible not

Is that If President Wilson had pro

(Correspondence of the Associated
FressJ One of the promising litera

with French aeroplanists, which, of
the many I had, is the one which I am

French machines were 'shot' down, and,
a third we forced to land.
"Though the French aviators have
the higest respect for our -.nti-aircraft
pieces, they have recently annoyed us
more than we thought necessary. We
decided to organize a sort of aerial out
post service, the purpose of which was
to inform us of the coming of the
French 'steel birds."
One day we were told that a squad

the direction of A (possibly Arras).

downwards, then shot up again, keep

have put the propeller of one of the
French machines out of commission.
Of a sudden the machine in question
took a headlong dive downward, but
righted again as it neared the ground.

as the most important. Mr. Thomp

That Senator Moser,- of Multnomah,
will be chairman of the committee on
