W. Secretary oT the Interior Lane yester- day announced the discovery the United States bureau of mines of two chemical processes, one which. It is claimed, will be of tremendous Impor- tance to the oil industry, greatly In- creasing the supply of gasoline, while the other may make the United States absolutely Independent of the rest of the world In regard to Important ma- terials necessary for the dye, industry and the manufacture of high explo- sives used In warfare and ing operations. The first of these processes promises to enable independent refiners In this country to Increase their output of gasoline from petroleum 200 per cent or more. With an estimated production on the part of the independent refiners of barrels of gasoline in a year, this will mean an output from the Independents alone of barrels, greater than the total produc- tion today from all sources. Basis of High Explosives. The second process includes the roaJi- ufacture from crude petroleum of what is known chemically as toluol and ben- zol, both of-which have heretofore been obtained from coal tar. As Germany has specialized far beyond othex coun- tries in by-products from coal, the United. States and the rest of the world have been dominated by that countrj' as regards those products of toluol and benzol, which are the Important bases AMBASSADOR GERARD HEARS SPEAKER WARN GERMANY TO BE SOBER Amsterdam, Peb.

Is that we have the knowledge that this new source of supply is at the command of our people, and that In time of great national stress, if the na- tion Is ever called upon to defend Itself, we will be able to manufacture the most efficient and most powerful ex- plosives known In warfare. Were It not for this discovery. It is possible that In such an emergency we might be compelled to rely largely on the greatly Inferior explosives that were used In the time of the civil war, and this would spell national disaster.

There are two or three other large corporations that have an efficient process for the manufacture of gasoline, but the Inde- pendents as a whole'have never been able even to approach the results ob- tained by the Standard Oil Company.

GERMAN VIEW OF THE WAR Editorial From The Post Shows England's Conduct Toward Belgium Is Not Unnoticed, Says the Staats-Zcitung. From the Staats-Zcilitng. 3New York. March 1 edi- torial from Thf Washington Post of last Friday shows tliat the point of view which England has adopted toward Belgium has not passed unnoticed by the press of America. In part, it is as follows: DKSERTrTD BY HTCR GRliAT ALLY. "Unquestionably the strongest of al- lirs is Great Britain and the weakest is Belgium. If England had sacrificed as many lives In proportion to her population as heroic Belgium has given the world would have stood appalled at the ioss. Great Britain Is Intact, and even prosper- ous, under the shock of war. Belgium is prostrated, overrun with the enemy, bank- and EgyptunQaaitttamtlitnMil nipt, and gasping for life. Her people are starving to death in every city and town and arc dependent upon the humanity of aVies, but far-off Ameri- their daily rood. A Ruthless Act. "Great Britain's refusal to to the poor Belgians is one of the most ruih- lesg acts of the ruthless and savage war. Tt is not an excuse to say that Germany !s also mistreating Belgium. Let Ger- many's sins be on her own head. She is an enemy of Belgium, and in the opinion of the world is too cruel in tifr methods of conquest, even under the- sting of enmity. But Great Britain Is the beneficiary of Belgium's sacrifices. She poses as the friend and protector of Belgium. She en- tered the war, according to her own offi- cial statement, because of her obligation to defend Belgian neutrality and Belgian independence. "How, then, in the name of humanity and sacred obligation, can England re- fuse to furnish food for her starving allies? What Chance Has Belgium? "If this callous selfishness, thin heart- less disregard of the needs of her allies, ia thus early admitted to be Orcat Britain's policy, what may the world expect when the terms of peace are made up? "What chance Belgium have in the settlement If It happens that British interests run counter to the rights of Belgium? "Yet Belgium could have saved her- self if she had been as Indifferent to her obligations as Great Britain Is now Germany offered to pay all damages caused by the passage of tha German army through Belgium.
