THE RUHR CRISIS.
Passive Resistance Weakening. ° ? -s^ ? PASSIVE RESISTANCE WEAKENING. LONDON, July 24.
The Dusseldorf correspondent of The Daily Telegraph states:— There is some evidence that the passive resistance in. the Ruhr is weakening. As an instance, he
says that the coal owners at one or two points are paying the coal tax, which is enabling them to send coal to ports of Ger many which are not occupied by the French and Belgians. The greatest difficulty in the Ruhr is the paucity of bank notes. Numerous firms and municipalities there, he affirms, are demanding authority from Berlin to print their own notes in order to pay their workmen's wages.
