SAID TO EE VERY SERIOUS
By Associated Prat*.
Basel, Jan. 31.—The situation in
East Prussia is very serious, accord-
ing to the correspondent of the Gen-
eral Anzeiger of Berlin. Several Bol-
shevist divisions are facing the eighth
army and 70,000 are facing the tenth
army. The dispatch adds that it is
feared the German forces will be in-
sufficient to effectively resist.
By Associated Pr»«a,
Paris, Jan. 31.—The peace confer-
ence jso far has had two replies to its
invitation to the various Russian gov-
ernments for a conference at Princess
Island. In one of these the govern-
ment of North Russia formally refus-
es to meet with the Bolshevik!. The
Omsk government, under Admiral
Kolchak, while less categoric in its
reply, expresses strong reserve.
The crisis in the peace negotiations
over the dispositon to be made of
Germany’s colonies seems to have
passed, momentarily at least. It is
too early to say that President Wil-
son’s view has prevailed entirely, but
it is believed in American quarters
that the compromise plan has been
accepted in principle, which will’ be
worked out in detail and which will
be acceptable to the American view-
In his discussion concerning dispos-
al of the former German colonies,
President Wilson contended in no un-
certain terms that to divide the colo-
nies among the entente nations would
be in direct contravention q£, his four-
teen points, which were accepted as
the basis for peace. The American
attitude, it is declared, is very posi-
Brazil has two matters of particu-
lar interest in the settlement of her
war claims: One, the payment by
Germany for twg, million sacks of cof-
fee Brazil was forced to sell her at
the opening of the war, the money for
which is still on deposit in banks in
Berlin. The other is the decision as
to German ships interned in Brazilian
waters, which were seized when Bra-
zil entered the struggle, according to
Dr. E. Pesso, head of the Brazilian
delegation to the peace conference.
Military representatives of the su-
preme council, in accordance with the
instructions given them yesterday by
the council, are taking steps to secure
an early meeting to arrange plans for
distribution of tbe entente and Amer-
ican forces, if the latter should be nec-
essary, within the Turkish empire.

Washington, Jan. 1.—The Hog la
land ship yard, which will cost $66,-
0(10,000 when completed, was defend-
ed before the senate commerce com
mittee by Matt C. Brush, president of
the company operating the plant as
the “only war venture where every
single penny spent is still good.”
"Aside from the ship building facil-
ities,” Mr. Brush said, “the construc-
tion of Hog Island is Justified as a

the United Stales government has in
vested in it but it is as good as deep

Mr. Brush quoted Howard Coonley,
vice president of the emergency fleet
corporation as saying that Philadel-
phia could afford to spend $100,000,-
000 to acquire Hog Island and contin-
ue Its development. Mr. Brush said
Hog Island was one or the biggest ad-

ever had, a psychological influence in

Frankly admitting that It would be
impossible to carryjout the ship build-

originally planned Mr. Brush said no
power on earth could have done so
because of handicap of weather and
