The war department has agreed to co-operate in furnishing Camp Upton as a detention camp to relieve the con (rest ton at Ellis Inland. Another camp probably will be established in the middle west to quarter the radicals until arrangements are made to send a small fleet of "soviet arks" across the seas. CHICAGO. Jan. 6. Federal authorities today had in custody Rataei Mallen, a statistician for the federal trade commission in connection with the national drive on radicals while the first of 324 persons held for deportation as a result of the recent raids were taken be t'oro immigration inspectors for hearing. Cases against those men have been described by federal agents aa "iron c!a4," and within the week the officers said they believed a large percentage would be selected as the Chicago contingent on the next "soviet ark." Heds generally have taken to cover since the wholesale arrests started, according to the Department ofi Justice -agents and the number brought in daily has decreased. Several dangerous radical aliens still are on warrants, however. In addition to Mallen. the only notable figure arrested in the campaign during the past 24 liours was William D. "Big Bill") Haywood, secretary of the I. W. W.. who has, been sought several days by state authorities on an unnamed charge. With him when he surrendered were nearly a score of other. I. W. W.'S. AT THE STRAND. THEDA BARA TRIUMPHS IS A BIO DUAL ROLE Theda Bara the vampire and Theda Bara the ideal wife have come face to face. The noted screen star has proved she is able to play the one as effectively as she can play the other. I In "La Belle Russe" which opened yesterday at the Strand Theatre, Miss Bara plays the parts of two different characters. One moment she is shown as the demure and devoted wife of an impoverished artist: the next sees her as a woman who outwardly resembles the first character, but whose soul is black. She is a notorious woman ofl Paris, yearning for conquest, and absolutely unscrupulous. The conflict between these two women forms the climax of this absorbing1 photoplay, which was adapted for the screen frem the drama by David Belasco. Miss Bara scored a distinct triumph in the dual role. "La Belle Russe" will be at the Strand today and tomorrow. Ladies and children are urged to attend the matinee to avoid the large evening rush.

A delegation from the Chamber of Commerce appeared and Vice President Quint of that body was introduced. He said that the moBt im-nnrtflnt. siihlpot in t.hfi hnroueh todav was the aewer proposition and - the project snouia De given prompt consideration by the Council. ThA ppwnnnl nrnnfmi 1 1 n n ia a dun. gerous condition we are facing and a very great many people mum that something better should be substituted. He also brought up the auestion of the adoption of a building code and the better lfghting of Main atrnat. Tirhinh Tiavfi hfsen fiUCE'ested by the Chamber of Commerce. The Mayor raeeuousiy remarnea that when the saloons were closed the town went dry and likewise dark. This was a direct drive at the speaker, who was prominent in the local option fight. The Mayor said that the Chamber of Commerce had a duty to perform of creating a public sentiment for tli. BontrArn TVi a nAnrrl a should be aroused. He agreed with the speak er as to me iixiporiaiiuB ul nffwungo. Mr, Quint cited the experience of Baltimore, where a somewhat similar engineering problem was encountered as exists in Metuchen to carry the sewerage through different 'elevations. As to building code he said that the town should be made symmetrical, especially such a growing place as Metuohen. 'Councilman Ayers stated that plans had been made seven years ago but on account of high costs, the matter of building had been deferred. The State Board ifooitvi will lmvA tliA final de cision. He said that he had figured that the average expense to eacii taxpayer would not be heavy, about $8.25 per $1,000 per year until the bonds were paid off not a high charge considering the benefits. He favored taking up the matter with competent engineers so as to find out just where we stand. A. D. Hyde, also of the Chamber said: "My business is such that I come in dally contact with outsiders seeking investment in the borough and the sewer matter is one of the first things asked about. In every way possible the system should be pushed along. The cost will be more than ottset Dy ine oenenis. n Main street could be lighted by inverted lights great improvements would be manifest." Councilman Itumler told of the lively interest that he encountered in the sewer proposition. He thought a very great majority of the people would favor its construction. - The Mayor said that there were eighteen miles of street in the borough and of course they could not all" be sewered at once on account of the expense, but he highly favored the idea. Councilman Clarkson talked on Main street lighting and suggested that the storekeepers should share in the extra expense. Mr. Hyde agreed to canvass the street and acquaint the Council of the result. The rules of the past year were adopted for the present year. Marshals Named. The Mayor appointed the following fire marshals: For Eagle Hook and Ladder Company Wm. A. Smith, Sr., H. A. Oliver, Fritz Hok-anson, Walter Tausig and James Powers. For Washington Hose Company D. O. Whalen, J. W. Breen. Jr., W. C. Banford and Edgar D. Blakely. Non-patrolling marshals Elias W.
