Mr. Walker added that his Interview with Learoyd reminded him of the recent "Raritan base" exposure, the case dug up In army circles a few weeks ago, when it vas found that thousands of sol- dlers had been sent to a supposed ordnance base at Rantan, N. because headquarters papers showed that the station was there. State Administrator Russell telegraphed on Monday that the Bridgeport man was on his way, and that he was to be Russell's representative.

The state administrator's telegram was crisp and plain spoken. It read as follows: "No word yet from your tidewater anthracite for Connecticut. Bridgeport almost hopeless. Have you absolutely discontinued your help for Connecticut? Must hear something from you. Walker, City Ice and Coal Bridgeport, go- Ing to Washington to see you.

Please accept him as my representative. RUSSELL." Mr. Walker said that upon his arrival in Washington, he was granted a conference with Mr. Learoyd, and asked If the Russell telegram had been received. Learoyd know of none, but after exploring a mass of papers, found that the message had preceded the Bridgeport man by several hours.

Repudiate Promises. The Bridgeport man was In session with the anthracite dispatcher for a considerable period, and as Mr. Walker explained, Garfield's assistant refused to take his pleas seriously.

One barge of hard coal arrived in Bridgeport yesterday, contaln- ng between 500 and 600 tons. Because of the depleted stores in the yards of all the coal dealers of the city, the cargo, which was consigned entirely to one dealer, wiili go 'mt a short way to appease the ever increasing demand of the inveterately shivering public. If promises of transportation officials can be relied upon, the local committee stated yesterday, five barges of hard coal will arrive within three or four days. No more soft coal is ih i sight at the present time. VThe coal that arrived to-day is but a drop in the bucket," Chairman Carl Siemon of the fuel committee, said yesterday.

"It will not begin to take care of our situation." Gives Ooal to FOOT. DeVer H. Warner, the only man in the entire city of Bridgeport who has taken coal from an industrial supply to relieve suffering among families, has furthered his generous offer, and yesterday placed at the disposal of the fuel committee 200 or 300 tons of buckwheat coal from tha supply that the Warner Brothers' corset factory has on hand. The previous amounts of coal that Mr. Warner has offered have come from the stors of the.

Bridgeport Gas Light company, of which he is president. "What are other people of Bridgeport who are situated as fortunately or more so than Mr. Warner's interest doing to help the situation along?" Mr. Siemon ask ed yesterday afternoon. "This is a crisis in the whole life of our city that we are facing to-day.

It call for the aid of every person who can help In any There an many people 'who can aid as Mr Warner has, and It is their fluty to come forward before It is too Ban Coal Peddlers. In order to squelch extortion the public by coal peddlers, Mr Siemon has refused to allow any more coal to be sold to the ped dlers for distribution. It was found that some of these men had been taking advantage of the suffering, and had been selling theii supplies of coal in small lots, a' prices that would aggregate between $13 and $18 for a ton. To fill the need caused by the ejection of the peddlers from the field, coa dealers will sell quantities of coa: each day to the people In smal! lots. Each purchaser must, however, attend to the carting of such an order himself.

A reply to the telegrams from Local Administrator Siemon anc the Chamber of Commerce and Manufacturers' association was received by the local fuel committee yesterday from E. B. Noyes, to whom the messages from here were addressed. Tha telegram read: "Impossible to handla Initial exemptions through fuel administrators. Hope to furnish state fue administrators full list of exemptions before Wednesday.

Confusion may be saved by insisting on evidence of exemption. We have exempted as when originally intended which order was Issued firms O. K. by heads ot government departments as too urgent to be closed. The fact of working on government business alone is not ground for exemption." The interpretation of the telegram here indicates that no plants other than those whose exemption from the Garfield order has already been announced can operate on the Monday holidays to come.

"Are you making much profit on the war order you received? "Xo," replied the president of the company, "but we're selling lots of ure the- 30 feet of tender bowels stuck at 10 times what it's worth," -Advertisement.

He was held on a charge of not having a permit and was-held for the federal authorities. Later agents of the Department of Justice are said. to have gone to Milford and taken the man away with the intention of bringing him to Bridgeport, The po- i have no record of the case.

Hoene leaves in his Milford home his wife and a baby daughter. At a late hour last night they could not say what had become of Hoene. Milford people say that another German alien is working In the Stamford mills and has not been arrested. Just what this action of the Department of Jus''ce agents pro- tends Is not known but it Is aat. it Indicates ing of the lines thrown about all enemy aliens.

Still Guard Bridges. Guarding of important bridges and the water front has by no means been abandoned even though the Home Guard has been, recalled and dismissed from outside duty. AH day yesterday guards kept conveniently near bridges in Bridgeport and they always kept one hand In their overcoat pockets so that an automatic revolver might be brought into use at a moment's notice. Actions of everj'one were watched carefully, and no one passed the several bridges without being questioned, japecially those carrying suit cases a traveling- bags of any description. Not since the war was started was Bridgeport so carefully guarded against enemy plots as on Monday night when not only did the railroad employ men to watch Its property against plots, but the Home Guard was called out'to help ana these were augmented by federal guards.

The federal authorities had fully 300 men on duty in this city. Every train into the city had Itg secret service agents and the federal net has not yet been withdrawn. Precautionary Measure. All admit, however, that the time set for the reign of terror in this city has passed, but believing that action might be delayed for a day or two owing, to being foiled the first.attempt, the guards are kept on duty. Yesterday was cold to do patrol duty In a small area and all the guards had little coal fires burning to keep them warm.

The water front Is Just as carefully protected from enemies. Special guards are looking after this patrol duty. "The call was real. It was no decoy," said Major General Burpee yesterday, and this statement is borne out by the length c.f time the guards have been kept on duty. The Home Guards and officers were highly commended for their prompt action In answering the call to arms for the protection of property.

Tlie preater portion of the striking workmen in Austria are said to have returned to work, but the situation both in Austria and Hungary Is declared still to be acute owing to the desire of the people for peace. In Germany some trepidation is being evinced by newspapers of Pan-German leanings over the situation in Austria and the possibility of the peace move there working at a tangent from the objects uppermost in the minds of tlie leaders of the German militaristic party. The Socialist newspaper Vorwaerts of Berlin has announced the solidarity of the German proletariat with Austrian la- boi-'in the peace struggle, and for its pains aeain has been suppressed.
