LO. DON, Jan. 31-All dispatches
receivedTa" London today show that
the strike menace in Germany In
creased yesterday, even a semi-orfl-f-ial
telegram . from Berlin saying;
Jcinly an ; inconsiderable extension
took place;"' -
While the opinion prevails In some
quarters of England that exaggerated
accounts of the strike have been cir
culated by the German government
fn order to influence the engineers
on the Clyde and other centers in
England, who have threatened to lay
down their -tools unless the govern
ment gave satisfactory- guarantees
tiat It Iwould open peace- negotia
tions, as well as the pacifists in the
entente " countries generally, there
Btnst have been, and still Is, a very
considerable stoppage of work. In
important war Industries.
, The strike, which was begun In
Derlln principally because of dissat
isfaction over delay In carrying out
"the Prussian franchise reform, hs
mere or less spread throughout the
provinces, and. according to a Ham
burg Socialist paper, a state of siege
jias been declared in that city and
Its vicinity, where strikes have oo

was formed in Berlin with repre

"Indemnities? .o opposed to the Fath-
erland party agitators, tor tfie con
tinuance of the war, .seems to be
the greatest desire of the workers,
whose threatened reprisals, accord
ing to one report, already have com
menced throughout the country ow
ing to the refusal of Herr Walraff,
minister of the interior, to meet the
strikers. His action in going into
conference with IJeutenant General
van Stein, foinitr Prussian minister
of war, and now commander of the
home forces, possibly with a view
to suppressing the strikes by mili
tary force, has further angered the
The German press generally con
demns the strike and warns the
stirkers that they have gone the
wrong? way about setting- an early
neat-, and are, instead. , harming J
their .own country.
! Government Is Warned.
Some of the paper, however, blam
ed the government. The Magdo
burjf' Volksstlmrne, for example,
says- that there is a limit to the
patience of every people, adding:
"It is the task of a segacious gov
ernment policy not to allow things
to go 6o far. How things develop
depends far less on anonymous cir
culars than on what a people as to
expert from its government."
The Cologne Volks Zeltnng lec
tures the Socialist leaders and says
the fact' that representatives of the
majority wing have joined the strike
committee indicates that the Social
Democracy believes Its hour hai
come to bring about its political
peace programs by violeneer
.AMSTERDAM. Jan. 31. The Ber
lin papers explain that the German
authorities do not refuse to treat
with !the proper labor leaders re
garding the strike. The government
takes the position, however, that on
important political questions it can
not negotiate with the workers, and
In any case, with srikers.
AMSTERDAM, Jan. 31. The mil
itary t commander at Hamburg has
ordered a cessation -of the strike
there, says the Cologne Gazette. The
dispatch adds that the commander
also ordered that future strikes be

who was stationed at Berlin until
America entered the war and who
recently - returned to the United
States from Copenhagen, where he
went after the outbreak of hostili
ties," has written the following state
ment of the effect strikes in German
cities ii likely t have upon the pro
duction of munitions:
"Strikes at Adlershof, the Berlin
suburb mentioned 1 today's dis
patches; will affect one of the im
portant centers of the German mili
tary airplane and balloon industry.
Important war chemical works, spe
cializing in the manufacture of con
stituents for. munitions, also are lo
cated in the Berlin suburb.
tSocialists Are Itetlea.
"In Spandau, where the strike also
is reported spreading, is the site of
one of; Germany's big arsenals, and
a center for the manufacture of am
munition as well as of electrical
plants devoted to war work.
''Spandau and Adlershof differ
from the usual ; German industrial
centers in that large numbers of
skilled workmen exempted from mil
itary service because of their greater
value, are employed there rather
than the women and youths who
make up a high proportion of Ger
many's Industrial army; in war
time' These men . are largely en
rolled in the ranks of the radical
Socialist party and have been restive
and dissatisfied with the government
for a lonr time.
"The Spandau workmen formed
ihe backbone of Germany's first po-
lltcal strike, during the war, called
as a protest against the conviction
of Liebnecht. the radical Socialist
member of the reichstag. and held
out the longest of any during the
April protest against the reduction
of the bread ration.
Socialist Factions Join.
"Conditions of the present Ge.
man political strike are significant
in that for the first time the leaders
of the majority or 'tame Socialists
under Schledemann. are aligned with
the radical Socialists. During, the
strikes : occasioned by the trial of
Liebknecht and by the reduction of
the bread ration In April. 1917, the
influence of Schledemann and , the
other majority Socialist leaders "s
thrown against the walkouts ana
they co-operated with the govern
ment in Inducing the men and wom
en to return to work. - Majority So
cialist endeavors were also primarily
resoonsible for the failure of the
eeneral political strike which radical
Socialists attempted to launch on
May 1. 1916. Now Scheidemann and
his associates arerepreened on the
