The first deals mainly with . the treatment of men captured during the spring offensives of-1918, and' ;^e]atcs largely to the employment of prisonors directly behind the German Ijnes. Like previous reports; it is � a long, sliocking record ot brutality a^d callous neglect. Following are typical extracts from testimony given by prisoners who escaped to British or French lines: '�'Several prisoners died of starvation at Raracourt. '.'Later' deaths ot starvation became-even rnpre numerous. , 'When I left Bazancourt about IBO men wore suffering bMly from dysentery and half of -the^ were living skeletons., V "There was ' a lot of. sickness at Cappey, caused from lack of food and ; exposure, attempt was made to remedy these conditions." In Terrlbk Condition Large numbers ot prisoners � no longer fit to work behind-the German ! lines were sent to Hellsberg, Kast ! Prussia, or Trelon, in Prussian Poland. A witness, describing the arrl-'val of about 300 of those prisoners at Hellsberg early In October, says they were mostly stretcher cases, and were taken to the hospital, but many of those sent to the camp were .so weak they could hardly walk. He says that boys of 20 years looked like men 40 years old. At Trelon, which is supposed to bo a hospital for prisoners, disabled while working on the western front, conditions were even worse. The place w^ife supposed to accommodate 400, but there were about 1,000 there. There was but one doctor in attendanco on the men, many of whom were in a shocking condition. One Bright Spot Only one bright spot is found in the harrowing record. This relates to the Deynze hospital for the 4th German army, where, although many supplies ^ were short, prisoners re- ceive careful treatment and adequate food, including wines and eggs. The second report, which is dated October 28, says that the cnnclusion was reached that events in the camps attacliert to the 10th army corps point to a deliberate policy of vindictlve-ness with a definite purpose ot reducing the health of officer prisoners. It Is -said this Impulse sprang from responsible Germa,n! authorities, and was directed by them. The war ministry did not interfere, for the alleged feason that It had no authority over the commander of any German army corps. The committee says that this seems a mere pretense. TO SEE CHARLIE �N ON BOARD THE U, S. S. OBOROB SENTENCE 14 TO DIE .STOCKHOLM, Doc. 7.- On the pretext of having discovered a counter-revolutionary plot, the ' terrorist committee at Mohilev has sentenced 14 persons to death, according to a Petrograd dispatch. Among those sentenced were Prince Eristoff, who was executed with two sisters, and the Prince and Princess Sviatopotk Mlrs-ky. WASHINGTON, Dec. 6.-(By wireleM to the AssoclatBd Press)-President Wilson's third day at sea found him' ^ much Improved in health. His cold !� yielding to treatment and his voice, is rested and much stronger. ; When It was learned that a film starring a famous comedian was to be shown during the evening, on board the ship, the president announced that he intended, to ba present, evidently anticipating the entertainment with pleasure. No formal conference^ hSTO been held so far as it seems apparent that plans for thc peace negotiations haye been well laid out.
