IN DIRE NEED
Supply of This Country Piti
ful in Comparison With
Europe's Frankford the
Tho present unprcparedness of the
tJliltctl States to defend herself from land
attack by hobtllo nations, according to
military men, has pcrliaps never before,
bien better Illustrated than today, when
largo corporations, knowing this Govern
ment operates only ono plant for tlio
manufacture of shrapnel complete, are
either erecting or contemplating building
great establishments to mako artillery
It Is generally conceded by army ex
perts In a position to know that In Europo
at the present time any one of the great
nations nt war Is llrlng moro shrapnel In
a singles week than In manufactured by
this Government In a year. Lieutenant
Colonel George Montgomory, command
ant of the FrankfoVd Arsenal, says a re
servo storo of 10,000,000 plecos of threo
Inch shrnpnol alono, to say nothing of
other ammunition, Is needed to place our
land defenses In n position to copo with
Coupled with this statement, Colonel
Montgomery reluctantly admitted It
roniiM Inltn tlin Frnnkfnlrcl Arsenal from
neven to ten years to mako that number
of mechanical fuses, to say nothing of
shrapnel cases. And the Frankford Ar
senal Is tho only Government plant mak
INT UCACIES OF SHRAPNEL FUSE.
A shrapnel fuso Is nearly as Intricate as
a watch. It Is made up of a number of
brass and steel parts, which are turned
out on especially prepared machlnory.
Some o tho parts, particularly the spiral
container, each round of which holds a
lew grains of high explosive, are so care
fully made, that a deviation of 1-1000 part
of an Inch will causo a hitch in Ignition.
When complete theso fuses are Inserted
in tho forward end of a shrapnel caso
and set like tho combination otf a safe, to
net under given conditions. By manipu
lation of a graduated dlau the shell is
modo to explode at any given distance
after being fired from a field pleco.
It Is In the manufacture of theso deli
cate and deadly Instruments tho United
states falls dangerously behind other
RESERVE PITIFULLY INADEQUATE.
To army men this condition Is dis
tressing. Many of them aro unnble to
understand why tho Government has
taken no action to fortify Itself against
Invasion. They say If a foreign Power
once conquered the United States navy,
this country would bo paying Indemnity
to Its antagonist at tho expiration of one
Even Congressman Michael Donohoe,
who has done much toward tho enlarge
ment of Frankford Arsenal and has
worked for an Increased appropriation to
the ond that tho plant's output may be
Increased, admits with regret the present
Inadequacy of tho Government reserve
ammunition fund. "At tho present time,"
ho said, "It would tako us years to pre
pare for a situation we should now be
ready to handle "
Congressman J. "Washington Logue also
admit!, tho War Department Is obliged to
purchaso much material needed for land
defenses from outsldo concerns, because
our own ordnance departments are not In
a position to make those supplies.
PLANS TO INCREASE PRODUCT.
This condition long realized by manu
facturing concerns backed by sufficient
capital to enable them to produce am
munition In addition to their regular com
modity, has led to considerable Inquiry
regarding tho making of shrapnel.
In one Instanca this activity has taken
a tangible foothold. The Bethlehem Steel
Company has In course of erection on a
hillside at Its Reddlngton proving ground
a department for tho manufacture of
fuses for ammunition. It Is said here
all the various types of time and de
tonating fuses will be constructed, both
for-shrapnel and shell ammunition.
It has also been rumored for some time
that the William Cramp Ship and Engine
Building Company of this city has been
contemplating a similar step, but confir
mation of this report is lacking. Other
concerns have been similarly named.
The new Bethlehem plant Is about a
half mlto west of the Lehigh Valley Rail-
roaa station, umcials of tho steel com
pany are reticent about their new venture
and the matter Is not discussed outside.
Charles M. Schwab, president of tho
company. Is In Europe. His assistant,
John D. Hagenbuch, beyond admitting
that a fuse plant is to bo built, will not
discuss the work. "It is true wa are
building such an addition to our works,"
ho said, "but I can say nothing further
about It at this time."
SCHWAB'S COMPANY INQUIRING,
It Is known, however, representatives
of tho Sohwab company have for some
time been visiting Frankford Arsenal and
familiarizing themselves with every de
tail In the manufacture qf fuses for
shrapnel. Colonel Montgomery conducted
them through the local Institution, fur
nished data, concerning machinery, work
men and output and In every way aided
the Bethlehem men in their quest in the
Interest of fuse manufacture.
I was glad to help them," said Colonel
Montgomery In discussing the matter.
The new Bethlehem plant will bo of
great assistance to this Government In
the manufacture of shrapnel needed as a
reserve supply In case of emergency. I
look upon Mr. Schwab's decision to erect
a fusa plant as one of the most patriotic
services ha could have rendered his coun-

Detectives Seek Man Who
Pretended Detail to Build
Coast Defenses at Sea
POINT PLEASANT, N. J.. Nov. 10.-
Tho combined efforts of two Burns' de
tectives, County Dotcctlvo William Shaf
to, tho police forces of tho Jersey coast
tonns and a number of private Individ
uals havo failed so far In the search for
Samuel Hess, a Government engineer de
tailed to do some extensive construction
work In connection with tho national
coast defenses at Sea Girt," and who In
cidentally buncoed merchants along tho
coast during tlio last few das.
"Hess," Mho Is of refined manner and
nppoarance, presented himself last Satur
day night at the office of the Van Note
Lumber Company and purchased lumber
costing about 14i0. He said tho Govern
ment had sent him to construct coast de
fenses at Sea Girt, but that tho matter
must bo kept secret. In payment for the
lumber he tendered a check for I74 86
made out to him by George Jones on tho
First National Bank of Chester, Pa , and
certified by O. II. Williams, "Cashier."
The change he placed In his pocket and
engaged accommodations at tho Marlon
HIS PLANS A DEEP SECRET.
Bright and early yesterday morning ho
made the acquaintance Of Frederick W.
Mnkln, a baker. Half nn hour later ho
had engaged Makln'a daughter as his
stenographer, after confiding to Makln
the secret of his mission. The girl was
warned against divulging any ofilclal
With Makln and his stenographer Hess
went to tho Ocean County National Bank
yesterday and, under a pretext of wish
ing to make a deposit with which to
pay Incidental accounts of tho work at
Sea Girt he presented to Cashier Clarenco
Chafey two checks similar to that given
tho VanNoto Lumber Company, one for
1350 and the other for $100. In the mean
tlmo tho VanNote check had boen banked
and Mr. Chafey was not satisfied with
the nature of tho certification.
He refused to cash the $350 check with
out Indcntlficatlon of Hess, and Arthur
A. Zimmerman, former world's champion
blcyclo rider and now proprietor of tho
Marlon Hotel, was sent for. Hess asked
him to Identify him by Indorsing tho
$100. j Zimmerman did so and Chafey
gavo Zimmerman the $100. The other
check for $350 Hess left for deposit.
CHECK SPURIOUS, AGENT GONE
With Miss Makln he left the bank for
Spring Lnko wjiero he had "other busi
ness to attend to." Chafey hastened to
a telephone and was Informed by tho'
First National Bank of Chester that tho
paper was spurious. Ho then got In
touch with Prosecutor Harry Newman.
who detailed County Detectlvo Shafto
to tho case.
Beforo going to Spring Lake, Hess had
borrowed from Zimmerman a new over
coat and when tho latter hoard of tho
fraud he got Into an automobile and
trailed tho Impostor to Spring Lake. Ho
found him In the ofilco of the Lowls
Lumber Company, where he was pre
paring to purchase somo more lumber
for the coast defense at Sea Girt. Zim
merman asked for his overcoat and It
was handed to him. Ho then accused
Hess of forging the checks-.
"You talk foolish," said the man. Ho
left the office and walked down the street.
Railroad trains, bar rooms, hotels, the
ntres and everything havo been watched
for him but to no avail. Warrants are
out for his arrest, charging him with
Zimmerman returned the $100 to tho
bank. Cashier Chafey communicated with
tho Bankers' Protective Association and
