Reply of Extraordinary Body
Going to Governor.
Raymond F. Almlrall, foreman of the
extraordinary Grand Jury, said yester
day that the Jury would meet to-day In
his offlco, 12 East Forty-sixth street,
when a letter to Gov. Smith .would be
framed in compliance with the latter'a
demands beforo ho accedes to Mr. Al
mlrall'a request that Attomey-Oeneral
Newton be named to aid the Jury In In
quiring Into the conduct of District At
torney Swarm's office. Specific charges
will be made In the letter against three
members of the District Attorney's staff,
who will be named. Additional accusa
tions, supported by alleged facts, will
also be made.
Mr. Almlrall believes thu Governor
will assign Attorney-General Newton to
aid the Grand Jury after he receives the
specific charges which he has demanded
and the other alleged facts which the
members of the body believe should be
brought to his attention at this time.
While the witnesses who will be sum
moned before th Grand Jury ore as yet
known only to the members of that body.
If they have been determined upon at all.
It is likely that neveral members of
District Attorney Swann's start will be
among them. It is not believed, how
ever, that Assistant District Attorney
Alexander I. Rorke will figure In the
case, as Ills work has been confined for
some time to the suppression of radical
activities and propaganda, and several
members .of the Jury have expressed
themselves as greatly pleased with the
results of his efforts.
ENGINEER FORESEES
ACUTE OIL SHORTAGE
Director of Geological Survey
Finds Situation Precarious.
George O'ls Smith. Director of the
United States Geological Survey, told
fhe members of tho American Institute
of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers
at their 121st annual meeting yester.
day, In the Engineering Societies Build
Ing, that the United States Is facing a
rerlous shortage of oil. The situation.
he raid, was precarious.
"With only four months' supply of oil
In storage," said Mr. Smith, America
faces the prospect of having to seek oil
from other sources, which are now show
ing a tendency to exclude the United
Sstatc.i from purchasing In their fields.
Mr. Smith estimated, however, that
the undeveloped American supply would
fumlsh enough for about twenty years,
and he said there was enormous quan
tities of oil In the shale beds of Colo
rado, Wyoming and Utah. Latin Amer
ica, Great Britain, France and Tho
Netherlands, It was said, control the
principal potential sources of oil in tho
world, and all these countries have
adopted' policies tending to shut out
other nations.
Herbert Hoover, recently elected pres
Ident of the Institute, will speak at this
afternoon's meeting, and will give a
plan for coping with the (uel situation
in general, anu tne coal situation in par
tlcular. ;
Evidence tending to connect certain pf
the Pateraon anarchists who were ar
rested Sunday morning with tho mall
bomb plots of List year was uncovered
yesterday by Federal officers.
According to Frank R. Stone, spoclal
agent in charge of the New Jersey op
eratives of the Department of Justice, a
quantity of pink paper similar to that
used In wrapping the mall bombs was
found In the homo of one of the Terrorist-Individualists
Just arrested.
Mr. Stone directed that samples of
this paper be sent to Washington for
comparison with tho paper Ukcn from
the bomb that wrecked the home of Attorney-General
A. Mltchel Palmer, this
bomb having been unwrapped before It
exploded. Several letters believed to
have a bearing on the plot have been
taken by tho Government agents, and
copies of secret bulletins Issued by the
band at the time of the outrages have
been turned over to official Interpreters
for translation. A hunt for other mate
rials that might show a relationship of
the Patcrson band to the plot Is being
carried on by several of the New jersey

MAYOR PLANS NOW
TO GO SOUTH FRIDAY
Mrs. Hylan'a Health Makes
Trip Imperative.
Mayor Hylan yesterday announced
next Friday as tho date for his Palm
Beach trip, which was postponed last
Friday on account of the condition of
the streets and bad weather.
The Mayor said that, though he usually
takes a vacation this time of the year,
ho would not leave tho city's affairs,
especially the traction Investigation, this
year except for the fact that Mrs.
Hylan's health demands the trip. The
Mayor added that a rover F. Whalen,
Commissioner of Plants and Structures,
and Mrs. Whalen will accompany him
and 'Mrs. Hylan.
American rrtosaoltoes are pushing,
hardy little cusses, but heretofore In
thts climate they always have taken
winter as the off or vacation season, like
bears, millionaires, Cupid and palm leaf
fan manufacturers. But now evolution
ha done Its worst. Woodrow Court, nn
apartment house covering the entire
block on St. Nicholas avenue between
169th and 170th streetc, more or leas
proudly announcees the an year mo
oulto.
S'ot even during the present cold snap,
when tho mercury Is huddling for
warmth In the bulb at tho bottom of the
tube, have the mosquitoes desisted from
eatlne the llfty-four tenants of the house
and their families. Even a shlvver seems
nn.ihin to nrevent them from maKinf
safe landing on somebody's arm or head.
Nor do they wear fur lined overcoats or
arctics. They bite with an tne zest oi
midsummer.
One explanation of the all year
hnaatlea Is that they have located
spring under the bulldlns; near the boiler
room where, like Dlxienna in some i.oao
nonular songs. It Is always summer.
Down at 198 Broadway Philip Meyro-
witz. lessee of the property, who lives at
Woodrow Court, spent a part of his time
womlering whether to enter the skeeters
a assets or liabilities on his books. He
knew they were annoying, but so few In
number as not to dUturb the tenants
seriously. On the other hand where else
will you find a landlord In New York
who keeps his building warm enough to
suit even mosquitoes?
POLICEMAN SAVES 3
IN TENEMENT FIRE
Uses Hose as Rope to Rescue
Mother and Children.
Patrolman John A. McKay saved the
lives of Mrs. Helen Strafcllcr and her
ttwo children. Herman, aged 3, and
James. 5, at a fire on the second floor of
the five story tenement house at 405 East
Nineteenth street yesterday afternoon.
McKay arrived in time to see smoke pour
ing from the windows, and tenants shiv
ering with cold and terror, huddled on
the tire escapes. He directed them to
safety and then entered the burning
building. On the third floor he found
Sirs. Strafeller and tho two children. He
was about to lead them down the stairs
when tho stairway from the second to
the third floor collapsed.
Firemen who had arrived by this time.
however, ran a hose up through the
third story window, and at McKay's
direction played it out until It was long
enough to reach down the stairwell to
the second floor. Using the hose as a
rope the patrolman helped Mrs. Strafel
ler and the two children down to the
second floor, whenco they made their
way to the street On tho sidewalk Mc
Kay collapsed and was taken to Belle
vue Hospital, where Herman Strafeller
also was treated for shock.
In the midst of the excitement over
this rescue some one suddenly remem
bered that Mrs. Kate Connell. the aged
mother of tho Janltress, was In her
apartment, on the first floor. She was
carried out by Patrick Flanagan of 322
First avenue.

RECO
MMANDE
THERE ARE SOME MEN
wlio'ftrc obliged to work for us More daylight.
Tli is very morning one of them ran across the street to
leave something on the door-step and about breakfast time
along came another man to stop at the door with shoulders
loaded and hands full of things wc arc expecting.
Have a good word for these early risers
who come through storm and sunshine and who in the main must
carry their burdens and walk every step of the way.
The faithful Postman !
The daily ncvspaper carrier!
The parcels post service and the increased weight of the
enlarged morning newspapers have nearly doubled their work
without doubling their pay.
We owe much to the eoplc who are on duty all night, who
prepare for us our mail matter and who piint and deljver the
newspapers the first thing every morning.
If postmen and ncwspajcr carriers were paid by the hours,
as some mechanics arc, it would be only the fair thing.
If the nightwork of large buildings were cast up it would
lie a surprise to many.
In this Store alone there arc 91 watchmen, cleaners, clerks
and laborers fyusy large parts of the night getting ready fdr the
next day.

The demand for good furniture is about fifty per
cent, greater than the production. Most manufac
turers of good furniture are sold ahead for the year-
ana are worrying about how-to get wood and veneers
and nails and glass and shellac with which to fill their
orders. . v
Costs, of course, are higher than were the costs
of the furniture now on our floors and in our ware
houses. More than a million dollars of good furniture
the Wanamaker kind is here, at reductions of 10 to 33
per cent., in the

low prices on the large stocks of furniture
