TO MAKE OWN TIRES TOO
Detroit, July 3. The erection of a !
factory In which all tlrs used on Kord 1
automobiles will be manufactured and I
the building of a blast furnace and n
motor plant, all to be surround! d by a
model city for the emploees, are
among several projects to be undertaken
soon, according to an announcement
made by Henry Ford to-day.
For some time Mr. Ford has been con
sidering means to prevent the waste
which comes from the reduction of Iron
Into "pigs" and the melting of the "pigs"
to be poured Into moulds for the making
Recently he hit upon the Idea of
operating his own system of ore laden
boats from Lake Superior to a dock
near Detroit, where the boats might un
load their burden In tho Immediate
neighborhood of a blast furnace. The
Inauguration of such a transportation
service and the building of the furnace
are among the plans now projected.
"We expect to have our own lleet of
boats to carry ore up the rtiver Houso .
ana transport machines destined to
foreign countries through the Welland
Canal," Mr. Ford said to-day. "I hope
to see the river widened sufficiently to
render It navigable.
"A large part of the property along
the river will be sold to my employees
at Just about the price which I paid
for It Then I expect to see a model
village develop around the new plnnts.
The 15 a day rate of wages which Is In
force at our Highland Park plant win
he extended to the 'nctorles on the
Kouge Illver. I want every employee to
have space for a small garden adjoining
"I am much Interested In the project
to widen tho Welland Canal and am
hopeful that this Improvement will be
effected soon. Then ocean going vcsels
may sail from Detroit direct to France,
Kngland, Germany and other countries
which we serve and our products will
be distributed without unloading."

-Mingola, I.. I., July S in the
course of a long examination to-night
at the hands of Major Pullman of the
Washington police Capt, Tunncy of the
New York city force and Sheriff
Stephen C. Pettlt of Nassnu county,
Frank Holt, the wouldbe assassin of J.
P. Morgan, admitted that It was he
who set the bomb which exploded late
last night In the Senate reception room
of tho Capitol.
The Interview with him lasted from 9
o'clock until a. most 11, and the pris
oner, weak from loss of blood caused
by the cut on his head, had to be car
ried Into the room In which hs was
questioned. Newspaper reporters In tho
corridor could hear his voice, whlc
wan faint and husky,
Those present agreed that Holt spoks
very rationally, nnd showed that he Is
a man of education. He has an unusu
ally facile knnck of expression, and his
slight German accent Increases In direct
ratio with his excitement.
I'lnu I.onar In .Mind,
I Ills account carries his movements
i back to June 11, when he says he left
Ithaca. For several months he hnd In
his mind a plan to bring powerful finan
ciers and manufactures of this country,
and even the national authorities, to a
realization that they could not permit
American made munitions to be shipped
to the Allies.
Then, on June 11, he hnd arrnnged
"I went straight to the .Mills Hotel

to get some dynamite, for I had already

If I could get dynamite,
"I had never nuido n bomb before,
but I know something about chemistry
nnd I rend the sections In tho ency
clopaedia about dyn.unlto and about
bumbs. This was enough with my
knowledgo of chemistry.
"I had n lot of double getting the
dynamite, but I flnnlly got It by paying
$30 for six sticks. Three of them I
used In the Washington explosion mid

him to do the work I could not do. I hope that he will do his share any
