Washington, � Aug. 23.-Germany la increasing her economic pressure on Holland and now refuses to let steel go into Tho Netherlands for shipbuilding purposes unless the Dutch ngree to devote the ships to German uses for a period of five years after the war. Secretary Lansing said today he had received unofficial advices to that effect, also that Germany had refused to let Holland have more coal unless Dutch  miners are sent to her mines to get It out. The state department's information is that Holland has replied that If the terms regarding the ateel are Insisted upon Dutch shipyards will shut down. It is not known what Holland will do regarding the Gorman coal. German pressure on all the European neutrals, latest advices say, Is increasing, but it Is being manifested mainly on Holland, Denmark and Switzerland, although it is understood that Norway is feeling it more and more.

The word "closure" was mentioned during the evening by William German, of Wolland, who gave expression to the suspicion that it is tho intention of the government to^introduce closure to secure tho passage of the bill at an early date. Tho minister of finance, how-over, disclaimed any such Intentions.
