Today, white crepe symbols re placed holly wreaths at the homes of Steve Polka, 16; Andrew No vak, 16; John Vogick, 14; Walter Kubala, 15, aand Joseph Kasicik, 17. The boys went into the mine to gather coal for their families. Several of them carried candles. About three-quarters of a mile in they began to drop. The dog, constant companion of the Vogick boy, returned home alone. When it could not be quieted the boy's father followed the dog to the. pit. Battalion Chief Saul Klein was overcome while trying to save the lads. He is recovering in a hospital.

Provided For In Act "The transportation act passed by congress in 1920 provides for a consolidation of railways into a limited number of atrong systems in order to maintain broader competi tion, more adequate service, simpli fication of rate structure, lower operating costs and in the long run lower rates to the public. "During the past ten years a pos sible grouping of the roads so as to carry out the law has been under constant discussion. The interstate commerce commission has no power to compel such consolidations. They can only be effected upon initiations of the carriers. "During this period a number of negotiations have been undertaken in respect to these railways, with view to carrying out the wishes of congress, but they have proved abor tive. "A year ago the interstate com merce commission issued a susttest ed plan for consolidating these roads into five systems. This plan, like others, has met with objections which apparently made it an unsolv able bas. Delays lietard Railroads "Those uncertainties and delays over nearly ten years have serious ly retarded development of lire rail wavs and have prevented a desirable ; prowth in many directions, and have diminished their ability to compete i v.-i-h other forms of transportation, j Sueh ouestions as electrification, ' linUimr no of dilfef'tlt railroads, de velopment of terminals and many other major improvements have been retarded because of uncertain ty with respect to the position which particular roads are to occupy in the permanent grouping. "It is my understanding that, the plan provides for the protection of the inf rest of the employes and full consideration of the interest of the various communities and carries out. the requirements of the law in protection of public interest general ly. The presidents of the major systems have agreed upon the many details" of the plan with the excep tion of a minor point, which is left to arbitration. "Ttie r.ian. of course, must be sub- miued to the interstate commerce commission, who have the inde pendent duty to determine if it , meets with every requirement of j public interest." i Meanw hile, members of the inter- j state commerce commission uccini ed to comment on published reports of the new plan. The American Railway A.ssoeia- on officials also refrained from any mnseuiate announcement ui ue.uun of the nronosi d plan. K. H.

He stated In the letter that a long investigation into Jones' pri vate and business affairs had led him to believe that he would pay well to escape the anger of a blood thirsty enemy. The epistle warned ihm that ho would be shot with a "nickel plated bullet" if he acted the least bit suspicious or sought to learn the identity of the author. It continued to state that the motto of his gang was to hit the victim with the first bullet and then to continue to fire in his general di rection until the gun was emptied. The letters were well written and carefully worded so that they might strike the receiver with fear thar he was to be victimized unless he fulfilled the request of his dastard ly enemies. Boslosky, who doesn't look the part of the desperate character that the letters allegedly written by him would make him out to be, is a tall, slender youth and would not give the impression that , he was particularly ruthless by nature. He will be tried at tomorrow's session of police court. COAST GUARDS OET MANY RUM RUNNERS (Continued From First Page)' BRIDE NOT FOUND AT NIMS HOME Mrs. Bramwell First Rumored in New Haven House valued at nearly $500,000 and may cause a return to the old system. Coast Guard officials believe. Within the last quarter of tho I year, tho "contact boats" changed their design. Searchlights of Coast Guard patrols revealed rum-laden' craft of rakish lines, with keels of the sea sled type. The boat builders art apparently has been brought to play to construct vessels capable of high speed in rough seas whilel heavily loaded. The Coast Guard has profited by I the improvements in boat building! I introduced by the rum runners. Sev eral speedy confiscated craft have I been refitted as Coast Guard patrol boats. One of these is the former' Black Duck, on which three rum' runners were killed resisting capture' near Newport, R. I., last year. No lives were reported lost in conflict between the Coast Guard,! and the smugglers during 19 30. MARSHAL JOFFRE (Continued From First Page)' New Haven. Dec. 30 (CP) Police . were convinced today that Mrs. Barbara Bufi'um Bramwell, Oxford, i Mass., heiress, who escaped from the Worcester (Mass.)

SACRED HEART PASTOR - . ii marshal has continued conscious. This morning his surgeons dressed! his leg, which was amputated above I the knee ten days ago. The patient, endured the operation without ap parent weakness. General Issaly, w ho has- visited I his old chief several times, saw himj again this morning and left the hos- rutal shaking his head in amaze-l ment. "It's extraordinary the energy hel shows." the. general said. "Whatl will! What power!" Whatever hope the most optimis-l tic might have found in the bulletinl was dissipated by Dr. Labbe, an , other of the marshal's physicians, i Says i:ml is Near "The end is imminent," he said. "Yet so remarkable is the marshal': constitution that it may not comtl i for several days. We are preventing 'ar'.eri.al spasms by injections. butl that cannot be continued indefinite-l ly." i General Gouraud, who lost an arrnl in the World War. told a touching! t story of a brief visit with the mar- . shal this morning. i "Marshal." he said, bending oveH 'his chief's bed, "do you remember Tiniliuetoo? 1 was at your side.
