Even Ruin in Wake of Raid
Into East Prussia Does Not
PEOPLE, TOO, ARE CHANGED
German Peasants Self-Respecting,
Neighbors Across Line Servile.
Desperate Xature of Com
bat Plainly Shown,
LTCK, East Prussia. April 10. (Cor
respondence of the Associated Press.)
The devastation and destruction that
have been visited upon all of Eastern
East Prussia cannot be more strik
ingly appreciated than by a trip from
this little town to Crajevo, a few miles
across the- border.
The trip supplies a remarkable series
of contrasts that are fundamental and
iar-reachins. Black Is no more llko
white than this part of Germany is
like far Western Russia from the
standpoint of population, customs and
the general appearance of the country.
From Lyck to the border every home,
without exception It Is said, has been
rifled and partly or entirely torn down.
The broad, well-paved road Is prac
tically lined with the remnants of
substantial buildings that in some
cases, particularly in the border town
of Prosiken, were once attractive.
Sharp Contrast Instantly vSten,
Along the road, as along virtually
every road of Its kind in Germany, are
shade trees except where they have
been cut down to allow of artl'lery
fire. They are so universal that ne
Rets used to them quite unconsciously,
and immediately feels the lack when
' they disappear.
The peasants, largely of the Polish
type, appear to be self-respecting and
pleasant. They greet the casual pass-
erby much as the farmer in America
ays "How do you do?" to the stranger
along the road, but with the same
tinge of equality in the greeting.
The once pleasant and prosperous
country-side from Lyck to the border
has been turned Into a desert waste.
In village after village there stand
only the firm, substantial chimneys
that even fire will not level to the
ground. Almost without exception the
remnants of the houses are of brick.
Then one comes to the line and al
most in the time it takes to close one's
eyes and open them again the scene
changes so materially that one might
be a hundred miles away.
People and IlonMes Chann-ed,
First of all. the devastation has
ceased. Not a house has been leveled
and not a building damaged. In their
character the houses proclaim the
marked contrast. The. brick has given
way to thatched huts, low, one-atory
sUTftirs thut fairly reek with filth and
In the doorways stood, as an Asso
clntod Pre.JS correspondent made the
trip recently, smirking, groveling peas
ants, who bowed almost to the ground
fti'aia and again, as- long as the auto
mobile was in eight. They showed the
aaiiio servility to the military every
where in command of the situation, and
were Quite oblivious of the scornful re
ception of their abject salutations.
As quickly as the character of the
huucen had changed, so had the trees
vanished, and for thousands of yards
stretched a bare, black road over which
the automobiles made their way with
Lyck, Maggrabova, and other little
towns on the German side of the border
but ' near the Russian line, had left
much to be desired In the way of
cleanliness and general attractiveness,
but as compared to Orajevo, when It
finally was reached, they were models
of beauty and sanitation.
Only Hovels Line Market Place.
The nearest approach to similarity
was the inevitable market square, al
most as big in size as all the rest of
the town together. In place of the
familiar brick buildings, often of hand
some construction, there lined the mar
ket nothing more pretentious than dirty
The desperateness with which' the
Russians have combated the Germans
for every foot of the territory was
plainly evident In rows upon rows of
trenches, always when possible built
at the top of rising ground, covered
over with evergreen or other branches
and made with cunningly-constructed
loopholes. Barely one saw a trench
facing the other way one thatx the
Germans had had time to build hastily
in the night. For the most part the
advance had been possible only by
storming each separate height and by
driving the Russians out of their

SPY 'EXPOSE' SUPPRESSED
War Ofrico Puts Ban on "Britain's
Deadly Peril," by te Qaez.
LONDON. April 16. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) At the order
of the Wt Office, the censor has put
hl ban on "Britain's Deadly Peril," a
book by William Le Quex, purporting
to expose the spy danger in Great
Britain. Thousands of copies which
had been distributed among dealers are
held up and the publisher Is enjoined
from printing any more copies. This
is done through the defense of the
Le Quex told in his advance notices
of alleged personal experiences to sup
port his theory that the islands are
honeycombed by German spies. In one
case he tells of seeing a mysterious
light in a lonely house on the east
coast of England, where a German
lived. He writes that he rigged up a
flash light some distance away and,
employing it one night when a light
appeared in the German house, received
in- reply what was obviously a. code
message. He then complains that he
took this information to the War Office,
which merely sent a printed acknowl
edgement and did nothing in the way of
It is known that the censorship has
cautioned newspapers against publeh
ing articles likely to inflame the Ger
mans and cause retaliatory measures
against Kngllsh interned In Germany.
Furthermore, there are many natural
ized Germans In England who are
trusted by the authorities. The as
sumption is therefore made that Le
Quex' book is suppressed in accordance
with, this policy.

Paper ITsed' for Invisible Ink Pound in

LONDON. April 14 'Correspond

Kuepferle, the American citizen of
German birth who is held for trial on a
charge of supplying Germany with in
formation concerning the movements
of English troops and ships, is said to
have been the means of affording Eng
lish detectives much inside information
concerning the workings of the Ger
man spy system with headquarters in
Kuepferle's arrest was kept a secret
nearly two months. Meantime it is re
ported that Scotland Yard men were
using the prisoner's name as a means
of communicating with German offi
cials in Holland. In Kuepferle's bag
gage sheets of paper used for invisible
ink were found. Imitating Kuepferle's
handwriting, the detectives are said to
have written letters to German spy
chiefs, between the lines of which they
traced In invisible ink all sorts of
questions asking further Instructions.
A rapid-fire correspondence is reported
to have continued until Kuepferle had
actually been in jail many weeks.
The prisoner is charged with having
visited many English and Irish ports
for the purpose of investigating ship
ping and reporting to Germany con
cerning the movements of transports.
Dublin, Liverpool and Belfast are said
to be centers where he was active. He
is also reported to have traveled into
other parts of England, using London
as his headquarters.

submarine blockade, February 18. He

Apaches Again Begin to Profit
by War's Opportunity to
SHIRKERS ARE NUMEROUS
France Again Considers Sequestra
tion of Money of Enemy Aliens
Deposited in Banks for In
vestment in Bonds.
BT CAROLYN WILSON.
(Copyright. 1915. by the Chtcaso Tribune.
PublUhcd by arrangement.)
PARIS, April 10. As long .as the
dally papers were only one sheet, and
It was 'with difficulty that one com
pressed the news of the day into those
two pages, you would have thought
that Paris vhad turned into a model,
spotless reform town. There was never
a whisper of a robbery, a murder, an
assault, nothing about street rows or
quarrels, for the simple reason that
there was no space to print the police
court news in.'
Now that the papers have come back
to their former slse and that the censor
is so industriously busy regulating
what may not be printed about the
war, crime again fills the pages, and
anyone attending the sessions notices
what a large percentage of the crim
inals are Apaches, who are profiting
by the war to give free vent to their
Napoleon System Recalled.
If you go up Montmartre way you
notice scores of these fellows on the
sidewalks, and they are all between
18 and 40. The question naturally
arises, why aren't they at the war?
Why is it that when honest men fight
rogues should remain at home?
Napoleon had a simple system for
insuring order. Whenever any young
fellows were arrested for making a
racket in the streets, the cafes, or the
theaters, they were enrolled imme
diately in the army.
Of course, many of these Apaches
are excused on physical defects, but
the consells de revision could be par
ticularly lenient with these infirmities,
and doubtless the discipline of the
front would inspire them with such
healthy ideas that those who came
back would not make as much dis
turbance as usual.
There is still the continued discus
sion of "embusques" or shirkers. There
probably will be until the end of the
war. As long as men are dying, as
long as women are losing their hus
bands and their sons while other men
sit safe in Paris, there Is bound to be
bitter complaining, sometimes unrea
sonable. For a certain amount of men must
run the business side of the war, and,
although their work seems pleasant
and not too arduous, even to them
selves, nevertheless it is necessary In
the scheme of things.
Clemenceau has abandoned his ex
hortations to Holland to enter the fray
for nearly a week now and has devoted
two columns each morning to this great
problem of favoritism.
Sequestration of Funds Debated.
Another hotly debated subject Is
whether the state has the right to go
into banks and demand the money de
posited there by German and Austrian
subjects prior to the war. Already
from the system of sequestration
which the government has been un
dertaking since November it is esti
mated that the state has reaped the
neat little harvest of a milliard francs,
If it takes over the right to ex
amine the books of the banks through
out France for deposits by enemies It
is thought that another milliard and
a half could be used to buy bonds of
the national defense.
Over here one of the fads of life
is collecting stamps which particular
ly have to do with the war. Several
of the countries have new Issues par
ticularly for the war. others have spe
cial stamps, such as the Red Cross
stamp here In France, which is the
ordinary 10 centime stamp for which
one pays 15 centimes; the profits,
which have already amounted to 60,
000 francs, go to the Red Cross.
Then there is the King Albert Issue,
which is used on French soil from the
headquarters at Havre, and the new
Duchess of Luxembourg issue.
But perhaps the most interesting
are those indicating annexation or sov
ereignty. I have three of the German
stamps with the black sign across
them. "Belgien." And, beter yet, I was
most awfully lucky In getting nearly
a hundred which were taken from the
German postoffice in Togoland and
have been stamped across, "Togo,
People Collecting Odd Coins.
The man who helped loot the post
offices I use the word "loot" only be

come back from there, and told me all
about the attack, in which there were
ten Englishmen, 300 Germans, and na
tive troops from both sides. Unfor
tunately the native troops, both ran
away In great quantities, and the ter
Englishmen prevailed evidently
through force of argument.
Along with stamps, people are col

thought had long disappeared. But
they had only sunk way down in the

An American who had Just come

One of the odd pieces almost extinct

years, and it is the Belgians who have

too, it has not been generally in use
for several years.
Refugee's Loss Pitiful.
I suppose some of the poor people
who fled in such a hurry had been col
lecting their little store of money dec
ades. I remember such a pitiful more,
such a- horrible experience I had when
I was going to Marseilles in the Fall.
The train was filled with refugees, who
had but just come In from the north,
and were being packed off as quickly
to the hospitable south.
There was a man perhaps 60 with
his daughter, a settled, sensible woman
of 30. whose husband was fighting in
the Belgian army. They had come from
Tongres, fleeing by night, hiding by
day, bringing with them only two email
valises with clothes and one with
And when we had left Paris only

larger valises had been left in the train

spair in my life as was on that man's
face. He was too old to earn any more.
It was the desult of saving for years.

would have given them courage to wait

She must needs tell him calmly that
it was all right, that they would cer
