Grasty, Correspondent .New York Times) ' London; via New York. Feb. G.- There are a number of United States citizens in London who. while rotAin-Ing their citizensliip. have been brought Into close relation wiOi the conduct of the war and \\ho have the views ot experts. On the assumption that the United States and Germany will come to grips, some of the United States subject urge me to advise the United States, that once we decided on action, we should go after Germany and the Germans the moment ' the whistle blows. Lieut.-Col. Henry W. Thornton, a Umted States citizen, the (CONTIKUEP FROM FaoITT PaOB) the same basis as at present. Jlr Freeman, however, raised the ques tlon as to whether tlie city might hot have Its own gas supply in a few years, when the mlnti would be unnecessary. Mayor Hardle answered that the gas franchise has 12 years to run yet, and the city could not secure a gas lease now and hold it until that time. There was a difference of opinion about this, however. Still Mr. Freeman thftuglVt that the mine, if it could be secured, would pay for itself in a few years without increasing the taxes. The commissioners did some calculating and showed that the property at $45,000 would cost, by issuing serial bonds, $11,000 a year for five years, or $6,000 a year for 10 years or $3900 a year for 20 years.

It is conceivable that the i German government has foreseen the {possibility 6f a break and will not let any grass grow under its ffeet. 'Interference on the part of the German partisans in the United States with the manufacture and shipments of wai^ to the allied powers is a warning which should not be ignored of wh.-it might be done in the event of serious trouble between the two countries, and having seen something ot i the methods of German spies and I agents, I think it is extremely important that full precautionary measures be adopted in good time to protect the interests of the United States. "This can only be accomplished by interning, as soon as it can be done, every German and, if possible. German sympathizers in the United States.

Amsterdam, Feb. 5, via London, Feb. 6-Anxiety concerning Holland's future is more keen than at any time since the outbreak of -war. Several factors contribute to the gravity of the situation. In the first place, Holland is now facing starvation. She can never produce more than she would! consume in, four and a half months  in the year. Existing stocks ot grain are sufficient for only a few weeks. Until today hopes were entertained that she would be able to provision herself from United States by the channel between the two blttekade eones. DEUTSCHLAIUD IS DUE .

EDUARD DRUMONT DEAD Paris, Feb. 5.-Eduard Adolphe Drumont, the well kno-wu editor of Libre Parole, is deiad. along the right lines if the retailers ot Lethbridge � start a central deliverj- system to cut out the; present overlapping in ..deliveries and consequent heavy't delivery charges, which must be inet,e..o6hsumers. It is also desired if possibly to gettlje business between the' consumer and the retailer on such a.ibasis that less credit would be necessary between, the retailer arid the wholesaler, and right on up through the wholesalers, jobbers and manufaclurers uiitjl the banks are reached. This would tend to cut down the losses from bad.debts, and also interest ' .charges, all of �n'hich must be charged against the consumer in the end. The subject is a big one,and its solution paves the way to great changes in merchandising which will resul^t in keeping money at home "wWch is now going out to mail order houses. The meeting last night was attended by representatives of the hardware, dry goods, grocery and furniture retailers, who felt that if. was too big a question for, action by such a^^small representation, and they are gpingOut today to! urge every retail member of th,e Board of Trade to be present at Friday evening's meeting when President Marnoch will go over the same j ground. ^ ' ; . . the Commission, that thousands upon thousands of children were underfed arid, actuallys: on the verge bt collapse , from stamtiont Unless extraordinary .efforts were made, he was convinced that at ,lea|t>pirie in ey'ery'iten children in Belgiuiri would die from sheer want.
