Split Allies at Peace Table
Germany's Last Hope
Germany's well-known cleverness lias worked out a grand plan that causes her to look for
ward to the future with confidence. She hopes to achieve at the Peace Conference what four
years of the sword have not been able to get for her. Secrecy being essential, the whole scheme
with typical Teuton finesse is loudly trumpeted through the German press and proclaimed from the
rostrum, so that if we are not warned at least it is not their fault. It seems as usual that Germany
is staking her all 011 one throw of the dice and this time the little game is to cause dissension among
the Allies at the Peace Table and particularly between America and Britain.
In THE LITERARY DIGEST this week —December 7th—there is a very striking article
consisting of translations from the German press showing how Germany hopes to gam big advan
tages when America and the Entente "start-to squabble among themselves."
Among other articles of timely interest in this number of "The Digest" are:

Your Best Way to Follow the Work of the Peace Conference
The eyes and hopes of the entire world are to-day
centered upon Paris, whither the delegates of the vari

which is to remold Europe and decide, perhaps for
centuries to come, the destinies of our planet. The
news that comes forth to the waiting millions from
the historic halls of Versailles will be in many ways

evening, at the Fort Pitt Hotel. The
sudden return to peace conditions
has to some degree disturbed the
mining industry, as the operators
realize that they will soon be called
upon to meet the old-time compe
tition in disposing of their output.
This requires quick and decisive ad
justment of the methods that have
prevailed under the war program.
The situation is further complicat
ed by the labor supply. The release
of thousands of miners from the
service and the cessation of opera!
tlons by tho many small wagon
mines scattered over the bitumi

labor plentiful and may precipitate
