BRITAIN IN NO FEAR OF SHELL SHORTAGE Munitions Minister Tells Com- mons Workers Are Now Keeping Up With Cannon. London, Aug. 13. Reviewing the work of he Munitions Department of the Government In the House of Com-mo- y K. 8. Montagu, Minister of -- Munitions, after telling of the immense Increase In output of all kinds of guns and munitions by his department. In- formed the House that all rifles and ma- chine guns for the armies In the field are now supplied entirely from home sources. The quality of the guns and muni-Ro- n, he said, was equal to the quan-tlt- the artillery having during the nt fighting acquitted Itself to the en- tire satisfaction of the British army and having ns well received the praise of the trench Ministry of Munitions. This statement, he added, was particularly true of the heavy guns and howitzers. Mr. Montagu pointed out that half of , : tiii.uni.iiK rrsoruces or me country . were reniilreil fA, tl. t.... ,.. that very shortly Great Britain would nave provided for her own requirements \ie u arvoie nerseir exclusively to the wants of her allies In regard to machine guns. Already Aiding; Allies. Already, he said, she was sending large amounts of guns and munitions to her allies, and In addition was sending to France one-thir- d of her production of shell steel and transferring to her allies metals necessary for munUUa- - h amount of 0,000,000 monthly. Th production of heavy shells, said tha Minister, was now fit per cent, greaier than It was In 1914. There was now being produced In four days as much how llrer munition as wa pro- duced durlmr the whole of. last year, while there were being turned out every mofth ns many heavy guns as were In existence when the Ministry of Muni- tions was formed, and this number soon would be nearly doubled. The output of machine guns had In- creased rourteenfold, continued the Mln-Iste- r, and there could be turned out In four weeks as many of these Implements a existed at the formation of the Min- istry. Xerd of llla-- Esiiloslres. The output of high explosives wss sixty time as great as a year ago, but the amount required was 11,000 to 13.-C- tlmei as great as at Ihe beginning of the war. The output of heavy am- munition, however, he said, now covered the expenditure nf such ammunition. Referring to German press reports that the present offensive had made Ir- reparable Inroads upon the Allies' stocks of ammunition, Mr. Montagu said It was true that last month's expenditure of ammunition was more than dou- ble the amount that would have been considered adequate eight mopths ago. and that In the week pre- ceding the July offensive the amount of ammunition consumed exceeded the en- tire British production during the first eleven months of the war. It was needless to fear, however, he asserted, that tho offensive would be brousht to a prematuro conclusion by a shortage of ammunition as long as the workers and the employers continued to play their part nobly, as they were now dol\g.

Second on Sea. 8037,344,000 THE TOTAL Greatest Building Scheme Kvcr Authorized in Any Country, in Time of Pence. Wasiun-otox- , Aug. IS. Congress vir- tually completed the national defence programme by finally approving the great Increases In naval construction and personnel written Into the naval bill and urgently supported by the Ad- ministration. The programme as It has finally emerged from Congress calts for ex- penditures far In excess of those ever before voted by this Government In time of peace. The national defence bills passed provide for expenditures aggre- gating SS7,3l4,000, divided as follows: Army 1267,000.000. Navy, IJ15.000.000. Fortifications, J25.74S.000. Military Academy, (2.211,000. Army and navy deficiency, $27.- - SS8.000. Total. 9137,34 4,000. The biggest naval bill ever passed by Congress or advanced by any nation In time of peace was practically made ready for the President's signature when the House accepted the Senate's big building programme as contained In the naval budget. With 3r. Democrats, 15 Hepubllc.niH and 1 Koclallst voting In opvteltlon the House approved the three yenr tnnsliUv.t!on plan, calll\E for U capital ships, by a Note of 2S2 to 51.

CRISIS EXPECTED ON FRIDAY Companies Maintain Shorter Hours Would Cost $100,000,000 a Year; Men Say $20,000,000 Negotiations Continue To-da-y. WASHINGTON, Aug. 15. End of the second day of White House conferences between President Wilson and the railroad managers and the trainmen brought no solution of the problem upon which the threatened strike depends. The deadlock to-nig- ht remains unbroken. Whatever con- cessions have been made by the two parties to the controversy have 'failed to obviate the basic cause of the disagreement, and on the main point at issue the employees and the managers are almost as far apart as they were yesterday or even when the apparent impasse was first reached. Nevertheless the President is working to the end of in- ducing both sides to yield something, so that a common ground that may serve as n basis for an agreement may be reached. Essentially the situation remains as it was yesterday, but, in spite of the slight progress made in the conferences held so far, the hope persists that a settlement may be brought about ulti- mately, although several days may be required to accomplish THREE UNDESIRABLES ( BANNED BY SING SING Weeded Out Under Welfare LeAgue Psychopathy.

This suk KtKtlon apparently did not relieve the , tension to any appreciable extent. The railroad employees, on the other hand, show no disposition to submit what I they teKsnl as the basic demand for an iuiii ninir ua vu nruiirauuu. ccii,. though they have shown on Inclination to yield on other minor points In dispute. At the conclusion of their conference In the afternoon Mr. Garretson, who acts as spokesman, said that the situation waa Hie same as It was yesterday, Statement From Wklte Hoase. After the President had conferred with the railroad managers In the morning tliu following Matcment was given out by Secretary Tumulty: Tlie President spent an hour and i half this morning with the representa- tives of tlie railroad management. After the conference he said that It was impossible as yet to report on tho results ; all that he could say was tha: a vary candid and honest discussion was In progress about practicable bates of settlement. At the conclusion of the afternoon con- ference with the cmpIoee a similar statement was made. It ,en,.J.J, Is no change. There Is an earnest effort being made to work out u settlement. Tho hope that a satisfactory solution will bf worked out Is based almost on- - tlrely upon the fact that the Presldert ass'imed it much firmer tone with on h the nunuit'M'K ami the employees, whi?!i may result in appreciable concessions when tlie conferences are resumed tu- mor row, The railway managers are working desperately to find some way out of the deadlock.
