FORECAST FOR THE FUTURE
Immense Struggle Along the Battle

The diplomatic representatives of
the allied powers are looking to the
next fortnight to mark "important
changes' in the world war.
The opinion prevails generally iny
Entente circles that the present
phase, signalized by the collapse of
Russia and the breaking' of the Ital Italian
ian Italian lines, is at an end and that the
new-year will usher in what may be
the final phase of the great conflict.
There are indications that the Ger German
man German military and political leaders are
of the same mind. From Europe thfc
reports that the kaiser is to make a
holiday peace offer continue to come.
That -it will be as futile as the-previous
political peace offers that havfe
emanated from-the Central Powers is
a foregone conclusion.
L f its rejection will mean the renewal
of the fighting on probably a greatei
scale than ever before, fighting which
will conclude with the active partici participation

American military officers, to the es establishment

that the lines along which the decis

Germany is following the same
course. While parleying with the
Bolsheviki leaders on the eastern
front all available troops are being
hurried westward. It is expected
that as soon as the kaiser has failed
in his attempts to justify himself in
the eyes of the German people by
making his futile peace proposal he
will give the order to the massed
German divisions and the armies will
take up the struggle at arms.

"Man failure" caused the disaster
which cost more than two-score lives
when the Louiseville & Nashville
passenger trains came together in a

Shepherdsville, Ky., according to a
statement issued Monday by B. M.
Starke, general manager of the L. &
N. In his statement, which summar

Manager Starke says: "The first
negligence was the failure of the flag
man and conductor of the train ahead
to; protect the rear of their train
while it was standing on t the main5
line at and near Shepherdsville and
in failing to protect it while, not
making schedule time before reaching
Shepherdsville." The engineer of the
fast train which followed is also
charged with negligence in that "he
failed to have his .train under control
as he approached Shephardsville, so
that if need be he could stop befort.

though he did. not get the signal- to

Manager H. H. Hyman of the Miami
Light & Power Co., reported last
night. All the electric signs in Miami
together, consume only about one per
cent of current supplied by the local
company, and we have to manufac
ture just as much electricity as tho'
the sign were lighted. Of course, in
larger cities, where they are great
numbers of electric signs, the fuel
saving is an important one. About
the only savings the enforcement of
the fuel administratioii's orders in
this city effects is that the merch merchants

Herr von Waldow, German food cpn-

people not only are hungry, but are
literally starving. The newspaper
adds that agricultural producers and
wealthy residents in towns are living
in plenty, as hoarding is no longer
prohibited. "Every war profiteer and
millionaire," says the paper, "has his
