He explained to the Bulgarian sobrianje that on the expiration of the armistice on Saturday the Rumanian delegates announced that the crown council in Jassy had decided to ac cept the conditions offered by the Central powers, including the cession of the Dobrudja, readjustment of the frontier between Hungary and Rumania and the granting of economic conces sions. The Rumanian government then was informed that it must sign before noon of March 5 a preliminary treaty em bodying these terms and that nego tiations would Ibe resumed immedi ately with a view to a further armis tice and the final conclusion of peace. M.

The economic concessions also would be set forth clearly, the work of defining them probably occu pying some time. J.E. REDM IRISH LEA HEART FAILURE FOLLOWS TROUBLE HEADED NATIONALIST PARTY AND FOR 25 YEARS FOUGHT TO OBTAIN HOME RULE London, March 6. John E. Redmond, the Irish Nationalist leader, died this morning. Mr. Redmond, who underwent an operation in London last Friday, passed a fair day yesterday 'and apparently was maintaining ' The Irish convention, which had been supported by Mr. Redmond, adopted yesterday a message of sym pathy expressing hope for his recov ery. Mr. Redmond - passed away peace fully at 7:45 o'clock this morning. Death was caused by heart failure ' following the operation, which was for an intestinal obstruction. This was borne courageously and it relieved the . patient, but heart failure intervened on Tuesday night. The physicians attending Mr. Red mond issued the following announce ment: "We regret to announce that John Redmond died at 7.45 this morning. Owing to several severe attacks of Illness a severe operation was faced With great courage. It had became Imperative necessary owing to an in testinal obstruction. This was reliev ' ed by the operation and for some days satisfactory progress was maintained. After a fairly comfortable day Tues day heart failure supervened during V. nnn qftor a flW VlOllTS Mr. Redmond passwl peacefully away." For more than 25 years John E. Redmon-J fought for home rule in Ireland and for a majority of that time he was the recognized leader of . Ireland's "struggle for liberty." As chairman of the Irish Parliamentary . party the-. Nationalists he exerted a powerful influence in bringing about the creation of the Irish convention - organized in July, 1917, to devise a system of government for tne isiann. When David Lloyd George, the British Premier, in that year offered two methods of settling the vexed Irish question, it was Redmond who, as spokesman for the Nationalists, re . jected the proposition for a partition of Ireland and, instead, accepted Lloyd George's alternative plan for the convocation of the Irish conven tion in which Irishmen of nearly all parties and creeds might meet in the effort to compose their differences and draft a constitution that would afford juntice lu an. Redmond was one of the delegates to the convention which sat at var ious times at Dublin, Belfast and Cork in 1917 and 1918. Born in 1851, son of W. A. Red mond member of the British Parlia- form WarfArH Tfalnnd Jnhn E. Redmond had sat almost continu ously In the British House of Com mons since 1881. There his parlia ment fights for home rule earned for him the sobriquet of the "stormy petrel of the "House." Educate! in Clongowes Woods College, Kildare, and Trinity College, Dublin, Redmond was called to the , ' London bar 1886 and the Irish bar the following year but he never prac tised law. He devoted himself al most wholly to his parliamentary and political duties. Prior to his first election to Parlla- , ment from New Ross, Ireland, Red mond was for some time a clerk in the vote office of the House of Commons. From 1885 to 1891 he represented North Wexford, but in 1891 he was ' elected from Waterford and had been returned from that district since gen erally without opposition. ' Keumon s eloquence ami ma kuwh of parliamentary procedure won his early recognition In Parliament and when in 1891 the Irish party was dis rupted, consequent on the Parnell scandals he became the accredited leader of the Pairoellltes. In 19O0 he luceeded In bringing about an amal gamation of the two leading National ist parties and made his position as Nationalist leader secure. Redmond was well known in the United States, which he visite'd in 1908 and 1910, and Australia, where in 1881 he not only performed a great service for his party in directing the collection of a fund of more than , 50,000 but found a wife in the per- 'JILL TAtt HUNGARY THOMAS FIRED FATAL FRONTIER SHOT TO INDICT Hi DESTROY 80,000 TONS EACH WEEK London, March 6. Commander Carl yon Bellairs, Unionist member for Maidstone, .in the house of commons yesterday gave submarine sinkings of merchantmen as averaging 70,000 tons weekly in January and 80,000 tone weekly in February. Reorganization of the United States Bureau of Employment into a per manent bureau of the Department of Labor, with John B. Densmore as its director, was announced. FA10US R IS DEAD OPERATION FOR INTESTINAL the progress shown on Monday son of Johanna Dalton, New South Wales heiress and beauty. The Irish leader's first visit to this country proved a fiasco, but his sec ond, made for the purpose ostensibly of attending the convention of the United States Irish League at Buffalo, met with great success. Following his attendance at the convention, Red mond made a tour of all the principal cities of the middle west and the At lantic coast, delivering a series of ad dresses on the Irish question which were later held responsible for the British cabinet crisis of November 1910. The speeches brought the home rule question to a head. The BrIUsh' government took serious hold of the problem and a. bill was evolved, which on presentation and discussion in the House of Commons resulted in an impasse because of the Ulster op position. This was shortly before the outbreak of the great war. With the entrance of England into the war, Redmond Immediately ' de fined his position as squarely with the government in the earnest prosecution of the war. His support of the gov ernment won the unstinted praise of Cardinal Gibbons and the open and bitter condemnation of the Sinn Fein party, members of which at a public meeting accused him of being a trai tor to the Irish cause. He maintained -Ms loyal position even during th exciting days of the Sinn Fein revolution, decrying the re bellion, but attributing It to a Ger man plotting in the United States. When the rebellion had been put down he used all the eloquence of which he was capable in pleading for leniency toward the great mass of the rebels. tnd in urging a speedy settlement of the differences that had caused the revolt. His eloquent address In the , House of Commons on October 19, 1916, de manding immediate home rule and the release of the Irish revolutionists called forth an answer from Premier Lloyd George in whioh the Premier admitted that mistaJtes had been made in handling the Irish situation and urging all parties to unite in bringing about a solution. EX-SEALER AND INSPECTOR DEAD Hartford. March 6. Word was re ceived in this city today of the death in Ocala, Fla., of Edmund D. Roberts of Hartford, former sealer and milk inspector and member of the common council. At the time of his retirement from the office of sealer a few years ago, he was the senior in that position in Connecticut, having held the place nearly 40 years. He was a native of Hartford and was 80 years old. ADMITS HOLD-UP STORY WAS FAKE Ansonla, March .

NAVAL WARFARE RESULTS STILL FAVOR BRITISH Sir Eric Geddes Reviews Situation On Sea for Last Year LOSS OF BRESLAU SERIOUS TO HUNS Mediterranean Sinkings Will Need More Attention, Says Admiralty Lord London, March 6. The introduction of the naval estimates in the house of commons today was made the oc casion by Sir Eric Campbell Geddes, first lord of the admiralty, for a lengthy speech in which he summed up the naval situation during the last year. (Copious extract from the first lord's speech were received by cable from London yesterday). "On the whole, naval warfare dur ing the last year has proceeded in creasingly in our favor," said Sir Eric. "It has continued! chiefly to test the strength between the enemy sub marine and the measures we and our allies have taken for combatting that menace. There have been occasional interludes, such as the exit of the Goeben and the Breslau and the re cent raid by enemy destroyers on a Dover patrol. Occasional raids on our convoys and the English coast are a natural outcome of the blockaded en emy trying to harass the blockading fleet. The exit of the Goeben and the Breslau (from the Dardanelles) was a raid of a similar character. The Goe ben was re-floated, and while the re- ports justify the belief that she was damaged!, we must for the present treat her as a still efficient engine of war. The loss of the Breslau is a se rious one for the enemy in that area, and much outweighs from the military viewpoint the loss of our Raglan and M-28 (British monitors sunk during the engagement with the Goeben and the Breslau outside the Dardanelles). "The Dover raid is, in a way, a satisfactory incident. It has been commonly believed that the passage of submarines through the straits of Dover had been prevented by nets and obstructions since the early days of the war. That is not true, and undoubtedly a considerable number of submarines passed through, even toward the end of last year. A more vigorous policy was adopted re cently and the surface barrier is now maintained day and night across the channel. At night patrolling craft numbering more than 100 burn flare3, so that any submarine attempting the passage has a reasonable chance of being engaged. "To raid this barrage the enemy came out on the nigh of Feb. 14. I cannot comment on the incident, be cause the admiralty in Dover has or dered a court martial to elucidate it, but I can pay tribute to the heroism and devotion of the men who, after being hammered by the warships maintained their patrol and went out again the next morning and ever since. Everything possible is done to protect them. "Night raids of this kind always can be undertaken by a determined enemy and are a tribute to the ef ficiency of the work of the barrage. "In previous statements I dealt chiefly with the naval situation in home waters. That is not due to a lack of appreciation of the importance of the other theatres, including the Mediterranean." Sir Eric alluded at this point to the fact that the waters around the Brit ish Isles had been the- enemy's chief field for submarine operations and that with American help the greatest successes against the submarine had been obtained in those waters. He said, however that SO per, cent, of the losses of merchant ships was ac counted for by the Mediterranean, and that conditions there had been more difficult to meet, the resources hav ing been less adequate and success against the submarine less satisfac tory. "It became increasingly evident," continued Sir Eric, "that as our re sources improved we would be abl& to turn our attention more to the Mediterranean. I recently went to Rome for a meeting of the Allied naval committee, and inspected the naval establishments in the Mediter ranean, including those of the Greek navy. British naval officers are as sisting the Greeks in the reorganiza tion of their navy, which already is co-operating in the Mediterraneai and rendering valuable service." "The meeting of the committee in Rome was representative of all the Allies with naval forces in European waters. It accepted fully the anti submarine proposals put forward by Vice Admiral Calthorpe, British com mander in chief in the Mediterranean. It agreed we should forthwith adopt and adapt to the Mediterranean the Nine measures that have given sue - Wednesday, March 6 They are accused of the murder of Norris Pannill in the riot at the Key stone club last January. "It is suffi cient to show that either of the ac cused counselled, aided, abetted or commanded the act which resulted in death. It is not claimed by the state In the information furnished in this case that Thomas fired a shot" Judge Kellogg instructed the jury at length regarding the law and pro cedure, defining the various degrees of homicide, and the method in which the grand jury should proceed to act upon the presentments made to them. Each witness was called separately and questioned and the proceedings occupied considerable time. Many of the frequenters of the place were also present to tell what they knew of the affair which resulted in the death of Pannill. Intense interest is manifested today in the proceedings of the grand jury. Corridors of the county court house were crowded with witnesses and oth ers interested in the proceedings. Previous to the recess at 1 o'clock for dinner the witnesses who had been called were Lafayette E. Evans, a civil engineer; Dr. S. M. Garlick, medical examiner; Graves, known as "Pigott"; Rupert Kelly, known as "Pickles"; Charles Winter, the last three colored; Policeman Harry Green, Sergeant James A. Burns. Burns was the last witness before lunch hour. Other policemen waiting to be call ed were Policemen Thomas N. Mc Namara, Edward J. McCarthy, Charles Fitzgerald, Daniel Brolley. Several frequenters of the place who have been held at the jail on breach of the peace charges, really as witnesses, were brought down from the jail to give testimony. At the conclusion of the testimony of Sergeant Burns, Sheriff Simeon Pease took the members of the grand jury to The Stratfield for dinner. It is not expected the presentments will be returned to the court until late this afternoon. No grand jury which has been sum moned in this county has had so large a number of witnesses to appear be fore it, 24 witnesses having been sub poenaed to attend today. Whether all will be heard is a matter for the jury to determine. Both Baby Doll and Texas were present and listened to the examina tion of the witnesses, and were priv Iliged to ask questions if they so de sired. They are not allowed to call witnesses in their own defense. NO MESSAGES YET TO JAPAN Washington, March G It was au thoritively stated today that the United States has sent no communi cation to Japan on the subject of ac tion in Siberia and that if any views of this government are expressed they probably will be conveyed to Great Britain, through which the United States has received all its information on the subject. It was further stated that the United States has not assented, dis sented! or protested, and that with out any exchange of written commu nications, Japan already understands the friendly attitude of the United States and its disposition to take no part In addition Japan understands that the United States credits her with disinterested purposes if action in Siberia should be taken. At the same time it is understood that Japan understands the United States is giving thought to the moral effect in Russia of such action and would feel that the absolute necessity should be apparent before it is taken. These views have been expressed to Great Britain which as an inter mediary advised the United States of Jajan s views. Villa followers dynamited the Na tional Smelters, an American com pany at Magistral, Burango, killing Catherine Smith and Perciano Shau- ceda, and burned two ore trucks. cess in the waters' of the British Isles, and the. main anti-submarine opera tions decided on will be undertaken under Vice-Admiral Calthorpe's or ders." Sir Eric described briefly his tour of the Mediterranean and then touch ed on the smooth working of the naval reorganization in Great Britain and the work of the Allied naval council in Versailles.' Touching on the rela tions with the Allies and remarking that the naval forces in European waters soon would be augmented by a force of Brazilian war vessels, the first lord continued: "It is perhaps natural that the co operation between ourselves and the United States should be .extremely close. I wish in behalf of myself and my collegues publicly to pay tribute to the whole hearted and generous de votion to the prosecution of the war which has govarned the action of every representative of the United States navy with which we came into contact. The personnel of all ranks has the respect and esteem of the of ficers of the British navy. "We have the advantage of con stant consultations with Admiral Sims, who attends our daily staff con ferences. We have American officers workine in various Sections or tne British admiraltv of exactly the same i footing as British officers. The co- i operation between the two nations its 1 as nearly complete as possible. FOUR TORPEDOES HIT VESSEL OFT PORT IN IRELAND Belfast, Saturday, March 2 The British liner Calgarlan has been torpedoed of! the Irish coast. There were 610 persons aboard, nearly 500 of whom have been landed at an Irish port.' The Cal garlan was struck by four tor pedoes. Two officers and 46 men were lost. Jnc Allan liner Calgarlan was a Vessel of 17,515 tons gross, 568 feet long and 70 feet beam. She was built in Glasgow in 1914. The last Deport given out con cerning the Iftier was In April of 1916, when she sailed from Halt fax for England with Canadian troops. A most unusual circumstance In connection with the sinking of the Calgarlan Is the fact that she was struck by four torpedoes. In no previous case had a merchant man been subjected to such a heavy attack by submarines. NAVAL HONORS TO EN WHO DIED ON IERICAN FLEET Base American Flotilla in Britsh Waters, March 6. The bodies of four American naval men who have died over here have just been shipped back home on board a United States naval supply ship. A brief funeral service the first of its kind to be held here took place on the quarter deck of the supply ship when the bodies, in sealed leaden caskets, were received on board. The ship had just finished un loading American supplies at a dock so that several hundred townspeople were able to witness the funeral ser vice from points of vantage ashore All flags on the American and Bri tish men-of-war were half-masted during the service which was conduct ed by the chaplain of the American flotilla flagship.' The coffins were placed in the center of the deck and each was covered with "Old Glory" while grouped about were several bluejackets. The reading of the funeral services over, the band from the flag ship played "Nearer My God to Thee." Then the coffins were lowered into the ships hold. All the time the ser vice was in progress the civilian on lookers stood with, bared heads. One of the bodies was that of Dud ley W. Queen, surgeon on one of the destroyers, who came to the navy from Texas and whose death is the first from disease since the arrival of the American forces over here. The other three were victims of accidents on board their ships. They were Wil liam Lusso, an electrician of Kansas City and Martin O'Callaghan and John Bourke, water tenders. There alBO took place the other day the first burial of an American naval man at sea from an American destroy er over here. He was Willis Martin Goodrow, a machinists' mate whose home was in Charleston, S. C. He was killed in an accident on board ship and was buried in a U-boat infested area. One o'clock on a bright January af ternoon was chosen as the time for the service. The body was placed in a canvas casket. Draped with the stars and stripes, it reposed on the after- deck of the ship while the bluejackets listened to the Episcopal burial pray er read by their commanding officer. This over the destroyer was brought to a stop for thirty seconds while four sturdy blue-jackets lowered the body of their shipmate over the starboard side of the vessel. DENTIFIGATION TAGS ISSUED TO GAMP DEVENS MEN Camp Devens, March 5 Identifica tion numbers have been issued to the soldiers at the cantonment and are now being used in conjunction with their names on official business. The numbers, which will appear on a small disk to be worn by the soldier, are given to every man in the army. These numbers will serve as the sole identification mark on a soldier when he goes into action in Europe. If a soldier's identification is want ed upon his being killed, wounded or for other reasons, the records will be consulted and his name will be found beside the number he carries. To prevent possible difficulties, soldiers of the same surname will not hold con secutive numbers. No soldier is al lowed to tell his number. The system holds two advantages. One is that, in the event of capture by the enemy, the identity of the pris oner, be he much wanted or not, his identity cannot be ascertained. The second advantage is that it is a check against spies. Where formerly an enemy might don a dead soldiers uni form and learn who he was from his identification card, which bore his name, now he can only put on the dead man's number. In coming to a strange outfit, if asked his name, out fit, etc., his answers should corres pond to the information beside the number he wears, and listed at head quarters. The identification card bearing only a number therefore is useless where that bearing a name and company would insure considera ble safety to a spy.

BOLSHEVIK COMMANDEK-IN-CHIEF ADDRESSES NOTE OF PROTEST TO INVADERS, REMIND ING THEM PEACE HAS BEEN SIGNED GOVERNMENT REMOVES TO MOSCOW. London, March 6. The evacuation cf Petrograd has fcegun. Three state ministries, says a Reuter dispatch from Petrograd, have started to leave the capital, from which the population also is fleejng hastily. An official Russian statement received here today says En sign Krylenko, the Bolshevik commander in chief, has sent a message to the German and Austrian chief commands saying the Germans and Austrians are still fighting, notwithstanding the conclusion of peace. He asks whether the German high command has taken all steps necessary lor cessation of hostilities. The Bolshevik government proposes to declare Moscow the Russian capi tal and Petrograd a free port. Emperor William, according to Am sterdam advices has telegraphed a message of Congratulation to Field Marshal Von Hindenburg on the "glorious conclusion" of the war on the Eastern front. The telegram, as quoted in a Berlin dispatch, says fur ther: "Now the costly prize cf victory in the long struggle is in our hands. Our Baltic brethern and countrymen are liberated from Russia's yoke, and again may feel themselves Germans. God was with us, and will continue to aid us:" In another telegram to Prince Leo pold of Bavaria, the Austro-German commander in ihief on the Eastern front, says a Berlin dispatch the Kais er congratulates him that after 3 1-2 years of struggle the German armies have called a halt to the "Russian army, which, with an overwhelming superiority of numbers, threatened our country." New York, March 6. Cable dis patches are being received by the As sociated Press directly from its Petro grad office. Although wire communi cation has been interrupted frequently of late, particularly in Finland, condi tions apparently have improved. A dispatch filed in Petrograd on Tues day by the chief of the Associated Press staff in . Russia reached New York at 4 o'clock Wednesday morn ing. The correspondent said one of his assistants was in Vologda with Ambassador Francis and another had been sent to Moscow to report the all-Russian congress of workmen's and soldiers' deputies next week, at which the question of peace or war will be decided. The correspondent also said he intended to remain in Petrograd unless the government should be moved to some other point, in which event he would proceed to the new capital. " TORPEDO HOLE REPAIRED, SI IS STRUCK AG An Atlantic Port, March 6 The American steamer Armenia, formerly a German merchantman, lies beached and badly damaged on the British coast after being torpedoed by a Ger man submarine, it was learned with the arrival of the Armenia's crew here today. The attack took place on Feb. 9, about three weeks after Sec retary Daniels made public the details of a similar attack on the Armenia in December. The sailors arriving today, 33 in number, said that after the Armenia, of 5,464 tons gross, was torpedoed the first time, in the English channel on Dec. 5, she was beached and tem porarily repaired by means of a wooden patch placed over the hole. Most of the cargo was saved. The vessel renewed her voyage on Feb. 8, bound for a British dry dock to have an iron patch placed instead of the wooden one. At 12:30 a. m. the next day a submarine sent a tor pedo into her hull and again she was forced to beach, the crew said, and it was a question whether she could be saved. The Armenia left Baltimore with grain last November for a European port. She was under the same name when owned by German interests. Secretary Daniels on Jan. 20 made public some extracts of the report of the Armenia's commander regarding the first attack. These showed that the armed guard stuck to their guns and the wireless operator to his ap paratus and that the crew displayed coolness throughout; GETTING READY TO TELL DA Washington, March 5 Announce ment of the date of the next draft is imminent. The provost marshal gen eral's office has prepared "an import ant announcement" which is believed to deal with the time and method of summoning the second levy. The best opinion is that first of the men will move to camp in April. Publication of the announcement is held up for action by confess n pending amendments to the selective service act. The most important of the proposed changes, in the opinion of Provost Marshal General Crowder, is that which will give him authority to base state quotas on the total num ber of men in class Al inster.d of the total number registered. Preparations have been made for summoning the remaining negroes certified under the first draft. ID r AIN LL TWO AGED HEN DEFENDING NEIGHBORS' CASH Covington, Ky., March 6.

When neighbors broke into the home of Santa Chaiedo, at 34 Trowel street, at 5:45 this morning they found Santa Cnaiedo. an employe of the American Tube & Stamping Co., dead, his daughter, Candia, uncon scious, and the cat in the kitchen dead from the effects of gas poisoning. Chaiedo's wife, who slept invanother room of the apartment, escaped with out any ill effects from the poisonous fumes which were pouring from a gas stove used for heating. A call was at once sent in to the Emergency hospital and Dr. Gavlas accompanied the ambulance. Upon arrival at the Chaiedo home it was discovered that the man had been dead for some time. His daughter baffled all efforts to revive her and she was rushed in an unconscious con dition to the Bridgeport hospital, where there is serious doubt as to whther or not she vill recover. Mrs. Chaiedo, fortunately occupied another room and appeared to have escaped the' fumes which filled one of the bedrooms and the kitchen and ere so strong that the house cat near the kitchen stove was killed while it -lept. Mrs. Chaiedo was brought to the hospital for treatment, but outside of suffering from shock it was foud she was unharmed by the deadly fumes and she vigorously refused to be treated. According to the testimony of neigh bors, fumes of gas escaping from be neath the doors of the Chaiedo apart ment attracted their attention when they began to stir about around breakfast time. Failing to receive any answer to their loud knocking at the tinnv tTipv decided to force an en trance. They found Chaiedo and his 13-year-old daughter Candia in one of the bedrooms. The man was dead and the girl at the point of death. Mrs. Chaiedo had to be roused from a sound sleep nothing the worse fo- ENGLISH IN" RAID NEAR BULLECOURT London, March 6.
