Tho Ways and Moans Committee Is the

Congressman Vnty is now a member of
tho Ways nnd Means Committee, although
he Is not the tanking Hcpubllcan mem

FIIIST 11A1T DIDN'T TEMPT.
The chairmanship of tho Appropilntlons
Committee was hold out to Congressman
Varu by national Hcpubllcan leadors for
homo tlmo as the "bait" for keeping him

said, has obtained their support to give
Congressman Vare the chalimanshlp of
the Vns and Means t'ommlttco in order
to keep him from being a candidate tor

Tho Vares, since Thomas H. Smith was
sworn In as Public Service Commissioner,

and until they define their attitude tho
way out of tho Hepubllcan Organization
mayoralty maze will not be found.
It Is fully expected In the Vare camp
that Congressman Vare will be a candi
date, nnd that he will announce his can
didacy a few days before August 31, tho
list da for filing nomination papers.
In the meantime, the forces thnt op
pose Congressman Varo's candidacy arc

CABINET TO CONSIDER
GERMAN SPY CHARGES
President Calls on Advisers to
Submit Data Covered by
Their Portfolios
WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 -The evidence
In tho possession of tho Qoernment re
garding German espionage, and the rami
ficatlpna of what Is claimed to be an Il
legal propaganda against the Adminis
tration, will be considered at the Cabinet
meeting Friday.
The President, who Is comersant with
some of the more important details, ins
called upon the heads of all departments
to submit to him a digest of all Informa
tion so far obtained. Io has discussed
the subject with Attorney General Greg
ory and Secretary Daniels,
Sir Cecil Spring-nice, the British Am
bassador, has had an extended conference
with Secretary Lansing. There is good
reason to believe that the activity of
German agents was taken up. The Brit
ish Foreign Office Is credited with having
given much Information to the State De
partment, particularly In relation to the
attempt, auegea to nave been made by
German agents, to foment revolution
among the Filipinos.
One phase of the recent expose that
has attracted serious attention from the
Administration la a letter addressed to
an unnamed German official of high
rank, advising htm of efforts to create
sentiment in Congress favorable to an
embargo on munitions of war. A num.
ber ot Important Democratic statesmen
ware mentioned as bolng favorable to the
movement.

TURKEY AND ITALY
CLOSER TO A BREAK
U. S. Ambassador Fails to Ex
pedite Departure of Latin
Citizens
HO.MtJ, Aug. 19. Tho Turkish Ambas
sador has been notlllcd by his Govern
ment that the return to llnly of Italian
cltl?ciiH In Asia Minor Is Impossible. The
number of those who expected to return
Includes 700 reservists Turkey, after
threatening thu Internment ot the Italian
citizens, consented to allow their de
parture aboard Amciic.in warships, which
tho Amerlcjn Ambassador, Mr. Morgon
thnu, held In rcndlncss.
The Tuiklsh Government subsequently
insisted that Italian ships be sent to Asm
Minor, whereupon, th steamship Cagllail
and Tolcnialdu were dispatched to Rhodes
for that purpose.
Now that the Porto lias arbltiarlly re
fused to allow the departure of tho Ital
ian citizens, a war between Ituly and
Tuikey, which It lint been hoped was
averted, seems again inevitable.
Italy Is determined not to tolerate Tur
key's inexplicable refusal, which It Is
believed heio waa obviously Instigated
by Germany Upsides, Italy hns socuied
evidence that Turkish officers, arms m
ammunition nnd money have been sent
to Tripoli, whole the holy war Is being
openly prenched.

blown to pieces or rendered unfit for

As fnr back as last November Govern

nllovs of steel, tiylug to llnd one that
would stand the strain of snrh a shell.
Finally they succeeded. Thev produced a
17-Inch gun that would suit thli purpose.
Various experiments havo been made, and

cessful. It Is stated thnt the shell wilt
be carried 25 miles and will work havoc
on a scalo entirely unprecedented.
