German Papers Again

Amsterdam, Feb. 6. The internal

But General Maurice States
That Allies Forces Are
Still the Stronger
London, Feb. 6. The Germans are
stronger on the western front now
than at any time during the war, but
they aro numerically inferior to the
Franco-British forceB, General Maurice,
director general of operations declared
in his weekly interview today.
" l ne situation need cause us no
anxiety," he said.
Replying to enemy propaganda,
Maurice declared that the number of
j Tommies in England always exceeds
one million. They are divided among
sick, wounded, members of the staff,
the supply divisions and men in train
ing, he said. The latter division is the
largest, numbering nearly 500,000.
Besides, ho said there arc 100,000 al
ways on leave.
"Our casualties in 1917 were over a
million, hence the large number of men
in training," declared Maurice.
indications that the Americans are hold
ing part of the French front east of St,
Mihiel, about 20 miles south of Ver
dun and not associated with either Hhe
Rhine-Marne canal or the southern Al
sace front. So far apart are these three
sectors that the German general staff
dare not concentrate at any one of the
points its newly formed armies, gather
ed along the Rhine to resist the forth:
coming American offensive. Von Hin
donburg can only wait until the attack
begins before moving the mass of his
troops forward from this present reserve
But if General Pershing decides to
move forward from St. Mihiel area, his
purpose will then be to plant the Am
erican flag over Metz, which would be
come the first German fortress to be
captured during the war. Metz is the
defensive center of the Gorman system
of railways that supply the army of the
crown prince, and all the other Gor
man forces in eastern France. Its occu
pation by the Americans would bring
about grave disorganization in the Ger
man army and would produce serious
distrust of Von Hindenburg's invinci
bility among tho Germans at home.
Re-Trial of Wemkrg
Will Not Be Delayed
San Francisco, Feb. 6. There must
be no further dolay in the re-trial of
Israel Woinburg, bomb case defend
ant; unless lie is released on bail in the
meantime his trial will start next Wed
nesday. !
Superior Judge Cabauiss made these
announcements today when the defend
ants in the preparedness parade bomb
plot cases appeared in his court for a
hearing. Assistant District Attorney
Louis Ferrari asked a continuance of
all the- cases excepting that of Thomas
Mooney. saying Mooney ought to be
tho first of the defendants re-tried.
Defense Attorney Maxwell McNutt
objected. Judge Cabaniss sustained Me-
iNutt and said:
" Weinburg is entitled to a speedy
trial. Furthermore, he is entitled to
bail until his trial and to reasonable
bail at that."
Ferrari declared ho is net authorized
to deal with bail and; Judge C'abanis.i
then said:
All right- In that case Weinburg
will go to trial next Wednesday with
out tail."

Profiteers Object
of New Hoover Drive
An extremely serious accident last
evening at the intersection of Church
and Court streets when an automobile
belonging to Rev. G. F. Holt and
driven by his daughter. Miss Jucy Holt,
struck Mrs. George Wi Gill, living at
138 South Cottage street.
Mrs. Gill sustained a fracture of the
base of the skull, besides a broken
arm and several fractured ribs. She
was taken to the Salem hospital where
she ia in a critical condition, having
not regained consciousness up to press
hour this afternoon. ' .
The accident occurred about 8:30
o'clock last evening. Mrs. Gill, with
another lady, were going east on Court
street and were just crossing Church at
the time. Miss Holt, with a party of
friends were driving south on Church
street on their way to tho high school
building. She was on ner own side of
the street and was driving slow, as the
rain had part'ically obscured her vision
through the wind-shield. The slow
rate of progress of the machine, a
Ford, made the lights very dim, and
Mrs. Gill and her companion, doubtless
not realizing the nearness of the ma
chine, stepped out in the street to
cross. Mrs. Gill, when nearly out of
harms way, turned and started back
to the curb. Her companion went
ahead and escaped.
The injured woman s condition is
considered critical and serious fears
are entertained that she may not recover.
