WAR COST $1 60,000,000 A DAY
53,000,000 Men Are Now Engaged in
World Conflict.
New York Fifty-three million men
are engaged in the war, which is cost
ing the belligerent nations of the world
at the rate of $160,000,000 a day.
$6,500,000 an hour, and the United
States is paying at least one-quarter
of this staggering sum, according to
estimates made Tuesday by the Me
chanics' National bank of New York.
The estimated daily cost at the begin
ning of the war was $50,000,000 and a
year ago it was $100,000,000. This
country's rate of expenditure is great
er than any other nation, Great Britain
being second and Germany next. By
next August, according to the bank's
figures, the total cost to the world will
be $155,000,000,000. Already ex
penditures have exceeded $100,000,
000,000, of which but a fraction has
been translated into permanent na
tional indebtedness. Interest on the
public debt is now calculated to be

Sea and Air Fleets Used in Fighting
for Possession of Gulf Entrance
That Leads to Petrograd.
Petrograd German battleships air
planes and troops are uniting in the
attack upon the outer defenses of
Petrograd, at the entrance to the Gulf
of Riga.
Fighting for the possession of Oesel
Island continues. Arensburg, its cap
ital city, has been occupied by the
Naval and air forces are energeti
cally supporting the land operations
and are attacking the north and the
south of the island. The south squad
ron of enemy cruisers, torpedo-boats
and trawlers attempted to force the
entrance to Irbe channel. Its further
movements into the Gulf of Riira are
covered by Russian long-range artil
lery from the island of Oesel.
The northern group of German war
ships dispatched a squadron of torpedo
boats between the islands of Oesel and
Dago which pressed back Russian pa
trol boats in the direction of the Moon
sund. Russian naval forces, reinforc
ing the patrol boats, accepted battle
ana the enemy retired.
A third group of enemy warships,
consisting of cruisers and torpedo-
poats, approached the southwestern
coast of the Island of Oesel and bom
barded part of the coast. German
submarines were observed several
times at different places in the Baltic.
Ihe exodus from Petroerad. which
has been noticeable since the fall of
Riga, has greatly increased. Since
Saturday the ticket offices have been
beseiged, many persons offering large
premiums for tickets. The situation
is aggravated by rumors which are
branded officially as unfounded, that
passenger traffic will be stopped
shortly, in view of the expected evacu
ation by the government.
No extensive evacuation is looked
for, as no immediate danger threatens
the capital. The new front is still 800
miles distant, and roads are impass
able. It is not believed a landing in
Finland will be attempted, owing to
tne scarcity of supplies there, and to
the fact that provisoning would be
rendered difficult, with winter
proaching, by the sea's freezing.
Ihe central committee of the fleet
has addressed to the sailors an appeal
which has caused cessation of the
meetings at Helsingfors. The semi
official news agency savs the first
naval engagements in the Oesel waters
nave snown that an appeal to the
crews of the fleet may be counted on
with certainty.

General Pershing Praises Work of Red
Croaa in France.
The Red Cross commission to France
has received the following letter from
Adjutant General Benjamin Alvord, of
General Pershing s staff:
"Our army is keeping a war diary
which is to be the official record of the
war here. I have received an official
communication from the commander
in-chief of the American Expedition
ary Forces reading as follows:
' 'It is well to place on record the
attitude of the management of the
American Red Cross in France. From
the beginning they have simply wanted
to know what they could do to assist in
the great work before the army. The
gentlemen at the head of the American
Red Cross in France are men of great
experience in handling large affairs in
the United States and they have ex
hibited wonderful resources in aeeom-
pnsning everytning tney nave Deen
asked to do. '

To Clear Up Misunderstanding in Re

Starting at the very beginning it is
possible for a young man by work and
study to have continuous and frequent
advancement with increase of pay. To

listing in the navy now receives the
following pay: Apprentice Bearrmn
$32.60 a month; seaman second class,
$35.90 a month; and seaman $38.40 a
month. From this post he may be
