Special t)4tpatch to Tin Sotf,
WAsntNOTOK, Nov. 9. Fuel Admin
istrators In New England appealed to
Or. Garfield to-day to curtail the amount
or coal which Is being shipped into that
section for winter purposos. Conserva
tion measures together with equitable
Attribution havo reduced the needs of
the six States from 30,000,000 tons to,
about 27,300,000 tons.
The mild fall weather has caused con
siderable saving In coal while the larger
utilization of electric power for' manu
facturing, especially In Massachusetts,
lthodo Island and Connecticut, has less
ened tho amount of coal needed for In
dustries. The shortage of coat In New
England last winter caused many fac
tories to close down and resulted In se
vero suffering In Ynany homes.
President of United Press
Tells of Filing Message
From Brest.
The United Press received yesterday I
the following cablegram from Boy W.
Howard, president of the United Prcas,
Died from Brest, France:
"Admiral Wilson's statement tells the
whole Btory. The Admiral gave me per
sonally and a Brest paper a bulletin
stating that the armistice had been
signed, Ac. Upon tho Admiral's assur
ance that the Informatlorrwas official I
and fully authenticated, I filed a ver
batim copy of his bulletin In the regular 1
manner at the Biest post office (French!
post offices are also the telegraph of-1
flees) for the French censorship. I
learned yesterday that In the excitement
due to the newspaper announcing the
armistice, my message did not reach the
censors until after the text had been
cabled to New York.
"I am personally convinced that Ad
miral Wilson was assured that his bul
letin was official and that he acted In
absolute good faith. I do not knbw who I
was responsible for the Admirals mis
information. My own part was merely I
that of a newspaper man at the end of a I
cable receiving from the base com
mander what I was assured, and had
every reason to believe was an official
announcement of the armistice. I made
use of supposedly official Information
only after requesting and receiving
special permission.
Correction Wan Delayed.
"Whflo tho demonstrations wero at
their height I learned that French offl- I
cera at Brest questioned the accuracy of I
the announcement. I Immediately sent
an urgent cablegram of correction to I
New York,- which should have reached
there in time for the Thursday afternoon
papers, but unfortunately this cablegram
was delayed for hours.
"Tho United ircss despatch (the orig
inal bulletin) was cabled from Brest di
rectly to New York. The message con
tained both Slmms's signature and mine.
tho. former because our 'collect privilege'
(the right to file messages tolls col-1
lect) reposes In Slmms's name. I under- i
stand the double signature caused con- I
fusion in Now lork, creating the erron
eous impression that the matter had I
been filed in Parts. Neither Slmms nor I
tho Paris office participated.
"I havo received cablegrams Indicating I
that Interested parties are endeavoring I
to capitalize the incident whereof the 1
United Press was a victim.
Official Absolve Howard.
"Serve notice that every action of the I
United Press is a matter of official
record. Our hands are absolutely clean.
All officials directly concerned have com
pletely absolved the United Press of responsibility.
"I will take any steps necessary to I
protect our reputation at home.
Howard's refcrnce to the confusion In
the Brest post office probably explains
the fact that tho original cablegram as
received by the United Press In New
York was dated "Paris ' and bore no
other date whatever. It contained no
mention of Brest either in the text or In
the date line and clearly showed Paris
as the office of origin
