lAGER TO EtlTEEl Oil
FIGHT FOR NATION
polish residents: of thexty, eagerly
await war tidings, not because they
would return to- Jftght- should ; Russia
become 'defeated, but became they be
lieve that in. the midst; of ;. the strife
in ISJurope that threatens to. fimbroll
every nation there, , is ;the:. time to
strike for the liberation of foland.
Prominent Poles . thtfoughou tbe . city
anticipate that before the war. cul
minatest Poland will malse b. supreme
efrort to- regain-, its liberty as ...one. pf
. the.JFtepublics ot Europe. , ; . .
Jn the likelihood of such action, ' it
' is. estimated ' that t more than sixty
thousand Polish residents, ct-the -United-
States would respond to a general
call from the board of commissioners
t Krowkow. .Since ancient times this
board has aat at .Krowkpw,: and it is
from here that all efforts for the 11b-
- eration of .Toland have come in the
past.; ' Tbe Austrian government many
years' ago allowed- them to. sit.' here
because - of . their, hostility to tRussiaT
and at', times have assisted with - both
advice and; money. -,t . ; ... '
At a meeting1: of -the Polish Falcon
Gymnastic and Military ;. association
. -held, last night Sokol - hall, mem
bers signed the piedge to rospond to
a. general call If it is Issued. lVl The
general order for the revolution for
: liberation - would originate , from ; the
board of commissioners in Krowkow,
an,d;would be received by the Ameri-
.can board which sits in Chicago. '
It isithe ldea of 'the Polish patriots
that the -time? .to make the strike for
Polish 'iiberty would be when ituasia
becomes so . weakened . by the present
1 war" that she could . no successfully
quell'-a. - rebellion. - They j state -'that
there is little or' -. no - patriotism for
Kussia among - the Poles, and that
their chief desire is to se the defeat
of the. Russian : empire. But few Poles
will vbluixtaxHy enter Russian service.
and, should- a ' rebellion arise, ' would
desert- from- service' under (Russia.
On board . the' Kronpririzessin Cecelie
laden with; several million dollars, of
geld, and which 'was: reported to . have
been pursued by warships of other
European a nations, , bound for - their
homes-ln Huwary were Mr. and Mrs
Pistey of this city. They .''had booked
-passage several weeks ago. .
Local booking agents report - that
there are no. steamers running at the
' present time, and . that they .are; not
accepting any passages. .' They state
that the only means by .which passage
-can be' secured for nations embroiled
in the war Im by , getting -'into commu
nictort. with the consuls in the larger
cities of the country. Some declare
that -they believe: the only ' ships to
cross" the - water, - carrying passengers,
will be .when a general call la Issued
by the nations calling for volunteers.
In such a case as this, they would be
powerless. to get bookings.
- Bridgeporters who - still remain in
the old country are Andrew Sentilik
John Doroko,. ; Michael PIvarnic, Mi
chael -Zofchak, John i Churma; John

re a number others. A report stat-
-' lag that these- people stand in Iikeli

As far as can - be learned, all- of

: I : RESENT CRITICISM
Many of the police officials feel that
the criticism made by Judge Coughlin
from the bench in city court session
yeterfiay regarding the non appear
ance of witnesses placed them in
wrong light with the public. Also
that some of the blame rests with city
court officials in not notifying them of
the continuance of cases in which wit
nesses are to be summoned.

On board . the . Krpnprinzissen Ce
cilia, North " German ' Lloyd Company,
the ship - loaded - with treasure' which
turned back - and -sought the neutral
waters of Bar Harbor, were Mr. and
Mrs. Frederick Sturges, Jr., of Fair
field. Friends of the couple anxiously
awaited word of the ship. - for the
stories of its -pursuit Iby rival powers
caused the greatest anxiety, as it was
feared that in case of failure to sur
render on the part of Captain Palack.
commander of the vessel, warships
would fire upon it. - ; s ,
All fears were laid at rest yesterday
afternoon when reports were received
that the, vessel had sought a- haven
of safety in- Maine. This report, was
later followed by a telegram announc
ing the safety of the party. It isx
thought that, as a result of the nar
row escape of the vessel, Mr. and Mrs.
Sturges will return to Fairfield, their
home, and await the cessation of hos
tilities in Europe before making the
tour of the countries. .5
Captain Polack, commander of the
vessel,' is one of . the oldest captains
in tho employ of the North German
Lloyd. It is but a few months ago,
that a banquet was given to - him by
the company upon the anniversary of
his one hundredth round trip sucrosa
the ocean. This was- held while the
gigantic vessel - was tied up to the
docks at Hoboken, N. J. Among those
present were some of the oldest sea
captains in New, York. A gold ,watch
was presented him by the members of
the crew. "
-In all his years of service. Captain
Polack's record has not -been marred
by a sea. tragedy, or even by the most
minor accident. His presence of mind
and ability to 1 grasp the most trying
situation quicKiy nas won mm a ns
