Careful experiments and investigations have shown

Temporary relief from catarrh may be obtained in other

Washington, Dec. 10.—In order tliat
the United States may ■ observe strict
neutarlity in tho European war, the
Navy Department will not issue this
month the usual comparative statement
of the warship tonnage of the principal
uuval Powers of the world, hitherto is
sued in December and July of each
year. Instead of attempting to put out
a statement corrected to date tho in
telligence office of the department to
day reissued the statement of July,
when all of the nations now at war
were pursuing the paths of peace.
While the issuance by the United
States of a statement setting forth the
naval strength of the warring nations
might be improper in itself, it was also
pointed out that the changes wrought
in the various navies by destruction
of vessels on the one hand and pur
chase and completion of craft on the
other would make it quite impossible
to compile the necessary data.
Tho July statement, reissued to-day,
shows Great Britain at the head Of the
list with a tonnage of 2,157,850, while
the other nations, in the order of their
tonnage, are Germany, United States,
France, Japan, Italy, Russia and Aus
tria-Hungary. This statement shows
that with the completion of vessels
built and building July 1 the order
would be Great Britain, Germany,
Prance, United States, Japan, Bussia,
Italy, Austria-Hungary. This latter
calculation would place the United
States fourth instead of third among
the world naval Powers.

Socialist member of the Reichstag,

an article just published in Berlin, lie
"This war was not desired by any
of the peoples affected nor was it
kindled to promote the welfare of the
Germans or any other people. It was
created by the common action of the
German and Austrian war parties in
the obscurity of semi-absolutism and
secret diplomacy in order to anticipate
their adversaries. At the same time the
war is a Napoleonic attempt to unnerve
and crush the growing labor move

: Pittsburgh Lawyer Want State Banks
j to Reveal Their Unclaimed Deposits
Application for a peremptory writ
lof mandamus whereby William H.
Smith, State Baulking Commissioner,
| would be required to compel banks of
! the State to publish annually, in De
cember, a statement showing unclaim
j ed deposits in their banks, was filed in
| the Dauphin county court yesterday.
The suit is unique in that it raises the
question whether the banking commis
sioner can be man dam ueed. Some law
yers sav he cannot.
The action was begun by Felming
j Kevin, a Pittsburgh attorney, and
\ counsel for Mary 0. Brackney, also <it
Pittsburgh, who says she is the sole
: legatee of her aunt, the late Katherine
j O'Donnell, and now is without means
' of ascertaining whether her aunt u. .
j money deposited in banks.
The suit was begun under the act
| of March ti, 1547, which directs banks
i to publish in the newspapers state
ments showing what unclaimed
j its are on hand. The banking commis
| sioner, it is said, refused to follow Mr.
Nevin's suggestion "to direct banks
to publish the statement," amd the
suit resulted. The court will fix a time
' for a hearing on the writ.
