Henri Tope, pro prietor of "Henri" hotel, which con tains one of tho most widely known American bars in Paris, committed suicide last night. He left his guests at dinner, went to the fifth floor and leaped from a window. M. Tepe also was the owner of a racing stable. o'clock this morning as a wail of me nacing bayonets in the hands of the sailors on guard pressed toward the constituent members, whom the sailor commander ordered to disperse and go home. The closing hours of the ses sion were full of exciting scenes, in cluding the attempt on the Jife of M. TseieteUL The withdrawal of the Bolshevik! and social revolutionary members was folowed by the defeat of the demand made by the lefts that the assembly first take up the question of the adop tlon of the Smolny Institute program which proposed recognition of the Bol shevik! authority for the approval of all decrees. Tumult increased toward the end of the session and many members of the assembly rushed toward Chairman Tchernoff and urged him immediately to put the question of peace. A sailor, who was standing beside M. Tchernoff, raised a hand and addressed him in i loud voice: "We are getting tired! Go home Good night!" Sailors in the aisles leading to the exits then drew closer while the chair man continued to read the peace reso lutton. The spokesman of the sailors then returned to the platform and insisted that all present should go home. M. Tchernoff thereupon calmly put the question of adoption of the resolution. which was passed instantly. The chair man then announced the adjournment of the assembly until noon, and the re maining members declared their de termination to remain in the city and hold another meeting at that hour. It was 3 o'clock in the morning when M. Askokov, a Bolshevik delegate, an nounced that the Bolshevlki were de termined to withdraw permanently from the constituent assembly which he said had proved itself not to repre sent the actual proletariat. "Mean while," he declared, the "workmen's and soldiers' government will consider what to do with that country revolu tionary organization." Chairman Tchernoff, making himself heard notwithstanding the wild stamp ing and shouting of the sailors, an nounced that the assembly woild sit until it has passed the land decree. The decree was hurriedly read and adopted with a standing vote. In response to the plea of M. Stein berg, the Smolny minister of Justice, and M. Karalein, another Bolshevlki member, the left social revolutionists who bad remained in the hall, then withdrew. You Yesterday, No Doubt Used Your Kodak To Advantage shown plainly in the many telegrams received by the fuel administration. Telegrams received today were singu larly free from requests for exemp tion from the regulation. Most of them made the flat statement that the regulation would be complied with, in fact and in spirit; that the manufacturing would be halted, and that merchandise would be kept off the crowded railroads. Railroad of ficials co-operating with the fuel ad ministration reported generally im proved transportation conditions In the eastern part of the country. The reports Indicated that the way was rapidly being cleared lor me movement of coal for the bunkering of the ships now held up at Atlantic ports and for keeping the country warm, improvement was also notea in the central west, despite the con tinued zero weather which has been Impeding railroad operations. Reports direct to the fuel adminis tration showed that coal in transit consigned to or already arrived at tide water points for the bunkering of ships destined to the American forces in Eu rope and to the nations associated with the United States in the war, were today more than suffioient to bunker the ships now In port Sup plies sufficient to insure yie prompt bunkering of vessels for some time to come are en route. Upwards of 300,000 tons of coal are in cars for bunkering and is on the way to South Atlantic ports. Approximately 150,000 tons are in cars en route for northern Atlantic ports. With tho improved railroad conditions this coal should rapidly fill the requirements for the vessles now awaiting bunkers. Bunkering Goes On "The United States fuel adminlstra tion today made arrangements for the continuance through the usual Sunday holiday tomorrow of the bunkering of vessels destined to the American forces abroad or to the allies in Europe. Plans were perfected whereby the bunkering machinery at the piers at New Y'ork and Hampton Roads will continue in operation tomorrow. This will faclli tate the handling of coal which has been hurried to tidewater by the fuel administration and will turn over to the roads promptly empty cars to be returned to the mines. "At the request of the Untied States fuel administrator, the director gen eral of railroads today placed an em bargo on the use of open-top coal cars for the shipment of products other than fuel. "The fuel administration was noti tied today that of 3,000 cars of coal moving on railroads to the east 1,000 were consigned to tidewater for bunk ering ships and 2,000 were on the way to domestic consumers. "Federal fuel administrators report ed that coal was going rapidly into dis tricts for domestic consumption, par ticularly those sections where the need was greatest. "Reports from the Baltimore and Ohio railroad showed a car supply of 1,805 cars available for coal mines in western Virginia. This was an in crease of 400 over the number avail able the day before. On the first day! the restrictive regulation was effective1 the Baltimore and Ohio railroad moved 1,100 coal cars, consigned in accordance with the order, out of West Virginia coal fields. This was the best move ment of coal that this road has shown in that district in sixty days. "From Philadelphia it was reported that rail conditions generally on the lines between Altoona and Philadel phia, which have been badly congested, were much improved. Virginia Gets Coal "Harry F. Byrd, federal fuel admin istrator of Virginia reported an almost complete shutdown of factories in his distriat wjlh cxmcequont relier Trom merchandise freight to the railroads serving Virginia ports. He said in ad dition that enough coal had been brought immediately into sight through out the operation of the regulative or der to supply the household demands. ' Telegrams from county administrat ors in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Mis sissippi valley states contained tho in formation that 'this part of the coun try is getting warm.' This was taken to mean that quantities of coal held back by the reason of congested con dition of railroads were getting through to consignees." It was found necessary to extend the exemption list considerably. The war and navy departments found that to keep running for which exemption al ready has been obtained, many con cerns supplying single parts and raw materials will have to remain in op eration. The navy's problem arose particular ly in connection with work on destroy ers. Naw officials vigorously are nressin? the destroyer program which had weather already had delayed for two weeks. One of the chief concerns of the army is to prevent any delay to the aircraft nrogVam which is aistrioutea tnrougn a large number of plants in all parts of the country. The shipping board sought and ob tained exemption for lumber mills pro ducing timbers for the emergency fleet eorporatlon. Deliveries of timber are far behind schedule and it was pointed out that if the lumbermen were stopped ehlnnlntr nlnnta would .have to close. Manv plants which Had been noti fied by government departments that thev could continue operation were not nermitted to run by local fuel admin lstration officials, who had not re ceived notification from Washington. This confusion. It was said tonight. had been cleared up and that there would not be a smilar recurrence. Fuel administration, officials expect ed Monday closing would restrict the size of Sunday newspapers and in crease the size of Monday editions. Advertisers, they said, probably would advertise heavily on Monday instead of on Sunday because of the closing of stores on Monday. Employers in many parts of the country were reported to day willing to pay their workers for the time lost during the enforcement of holidays. said wholesale and retail stores, in cluding department stores which have foodstuffs departments, may remain open on Mondays until noon for the purpose of selling food only. Rapid transit companies were Bix nnrmiaolnn trt ill-tail their MnndftV Ser-T vice "to a point where it will insure the safety of the public." In connection with tne oraer issuea at Washington permitting theaters to remain open Mondays, but to close Tuesdays Mr. Wlggm received a tele gram from the federal administration stating that places of amusement spec ified in the order are forbidden to use fuel on such Tuesdays for lignt as well as heat. The original order did not mention light and .the ruling is regarded as dis posing of the question as to whether theaters could remain open if they did not use fuel for heat. . - Chicago Better Off I CHICAGO. Jan. 19. Traffic condi tions rapidly are improving and the coal shortage ia becoming less acute throughout the west and middle west, railroad officials announced tonight. General relief throughout the country will come as soon as roads east from Chicago are opened, which will be In a few days, it was said. R. H. Aishton, president of the Chi cago and Northwestern rauroaa ana regional traffic director for roads west of the Mississippi announced tonight that the fuel situation probably would be cleared up within a week. In Chicago the tenseness or the sit uation has been greatly relieved by the closing of many industrial plants. Shipments of coal received are increas ing daily in number. M'ADOO SAYS THAT WEATHER HAS MADE BIG RAILWAY BLOCK (Continued from Page One) road officials themselves by W. G. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Rail road Wainmen who made a statement to that effect today. Indifference on the part of the rail road operating heads, coupled with a desire to teach the public an object lesson in the need of increased rates, had been noticed by seasoned railroad employes for many months. President Lee said. A general opinion prevails among railroad workers, he said, that the al leged object lessons the railroads at tempted to teach got beyond their con trol. President Lee's statement in part fol lows: "The present railroad congestion and tne causes leading thereto are, in my opinion, not of recent origin. From the transportation railway employes' point of view the present congestion is the result of certain phases of railway operation that date back almost three years, or from the time agitation was started for an eight-hour day, for this ciass ot employes, it appeared to the men interested that the railroad com panies at that time were operating trains in such a manner as to convince the public that it was impossible to reduce the number of hours which this class of employes then were required iu maKe in oraer to carry on the serv ice. Contrary to general public under. standing railroad employes for the most part are not well paid. The going rate ior tne normal day s work for an en gineer in freight service in the con gested territory is $4.85; for the con ductor, $4; for the brakeman. $2.67: for the fireman, $3.25. This means that m oraer to earn a living wdge, brake- men ana riremen particularly, must taKe overtime. "The general effect of railroad low wages is shown in the 'turnover of employes for the first nine months of 1917, which, roughly stated, for the con gested territory alone, ha3 meant the employment of three men to keep one iod iniea. i nis turnover over experienc ed employes has resulted in impaired ef ticlency and contribute its full share toward present congested conditions, "It is the opinion of the men that if the railroad companies had directed their efforts toward getting trains over me road, there would not have been any such congestion as in effect now on all of the railroads, and particularly at. -our eastern terminals, mmm&mm I ' 1 ''V WINDOWS jfj l il l TELL THE $A.M l Iff ft STORY BETTER jgj.3.4 jTljf I ',' THAN WORDS if i nil"" si wm. v.:tf ill I iiw-:';.-f.w:.v TODAY you are possibly wondering when to have your films developed and finished.

New York City emerged today from the haze of doubt and misgiving into which it had been plunged by the federal fuel ad ministration's five-day industrial clos ing order. Ships laden with munitions, clothing and food for the American soldiers in France, as well as supplies for Ameri ca's allies, held in the harbor by empty coal bunkers, made preparations to go to sea when large supplies of fuel, di verted from suspended industries, be came available to them. Reports re ceived from the eastern half of the aountry showed freight congestion clearing and increasing supplies of coal on the way to suffering districts. The comfort of the city's homes and workers in essential industries was as sured with the arrival in the city of 35,000 tons of fuel, backed by an in creasing amount at tidewater termin als and on the way, from mines. With about 40,000 industrial establishments closed, the supply was considered ample. Complaints against fifteen non-es sential industries which are alleged to have disregarded the order were turned over to federal authorities. The state fuel administration granted 135 exemptions today one-third of which were for food products manu facturers. A statement issued by A ' H. .Wiggln. state fuel administrator.
