Hongkong, Oct. 15. The hor
rors of the famine situation in
Quangtung and Quangsi prov
inces are beyond adequate de
scription. The Chinese government, ' as
usual has been able to do prac
tically nothing for the sufferers,
Ordinarily the British at Hong
kong would have been active in
relieving the ncutest of the dis
tress but the war has paralyzed
relief work. Missionaries have
accomplished a little but condi
tions are so frightful and involve
audi enormous numbers that
oven a widespread and financial
ly powertul organization would
be swamped.
As a result, the wretched
Chinese have been left almost
wholly to their fate.
As is invariably the case in
China, even approximately cor
rect figures are unobtainable but
j I; is, at any rate, safe to say that
the famine stricken number mil
lions. Perhaps 1,000,000 have
died

of thousands. White men who
have traversed the famine sec
tions of the two provinces esti
mate conservatively that well to
ward a third of their population
will succumb ultimately.
The foulest refuse, grass roots
and leaves, bark, everything even
nuggostive of edibility, is greed
ily devoured. In places the peo
ple have pulled down wooden
1 tortious of their houses, pounded
the timber into meal and tried to
'at it. There undoubtedly have
been cases of cannibalism.
The famine is due to the crop
destruction incidental to the
floods of last summer. Capable
engineers any they could be whol
ly nreventiu by a proper system
of drainage and dyking but the
money for it is IscKinir. At in
tervals there have been such visi
tntions inunemorially but the
present one Is unprecedented in
its severity. The provinces are
.lmong the most thickly settled in
China, which aggravates the
situation's seriousness.

(By J, W. T. Mason, former London
correspondent for the United Press )
New York, Oct, 1,1. General Von
Boolims, commanding one of the kaiser's
armies in northern France, failed in his
efforts to block the southward retreat
of the allied forces from Ostend, it was
evident today.
The French occupation of Vpres
proves that the road is open for these
sorely fatigued Ilelgians with the Brit
ish reinforcements, to escape.
Vpres is i5 miles south of Ostend and
cominnnds n junction of throe or four
main highways from Ostend south to the
allies' military lines. Its retention by
the French is a tfircnt against the
southern flank of flenernl Von Heeoler'a

From this glvo and iaka It appons
that tho rival forces are nhout equal in

wnnl and, so far an known, the Anglo
Belgian troops who fled the city on the
Hchcldt have not yet united with the
rescuing French corps.
If the British and Belgians are not
too much exhmstcd, they iniuht, by
joining the French nt Yprcs, deliver an
attack in overwhelmingly superior
numbers against either of the two Her
man commands. There is every In Men
tion, however, that the Anglo -Belgian
army urgently needs tinio for recuper

Suggest Appropriations Be
Made for Fiscal Year, and
Reports the Same
As a final solution of the difficulties
and exasperating situations arising out
of the present system of making ap
propriations for the maintenance of the
various departments and institutions of
the state and the requiring of reports
of the heads of the departments for the
biennial period closing September 30
on even years, Secretary of State Oleott
and other state officials suggest ap
change in the system to conform to the
federal government system of making
annual appropriations to cover the fis
cal year ending Juno 30 and requiring
annual reports of the state officials
covering the same fiscal period.
There are numerous arguments ad
vanced in favor of the change suggested
but the most important of them are
that, under the fiscal year system of
mailing appropriations and annual re
port periods, the financial troubles of
tho stuto departments and institutions,
which frequently occur under the men
nia I porlod system through various
causes but most generally duo to defects
In legislation and overnight, would be
eliminated, and in ehanuinir tho close
of the report period from September
,10 to .In n ft JO of each year the officials
would have more time iu which to close
up their books and inuko their reports
to the legislature in plenty of time he
roic Hint body convenes.
In order to put the fiscal period ava
tern into effect from the standpoint nf
departmental and institutional main
tenance it would be necessary for the
next legislature to make appropriations
to cover a period of 30 months, which
would provide for the maintenance of
the different departments until June
30, 1017, instead nf the usual biennial
period of 21 months closing Jnniinry 1
of the odd years. This would require a
seeiniimly heavy appropriation for tho
approaching session, since nu extra six
months would have to be provided for,
but after that the i rocedurn would be

the system would be self regulitting in
the future.
