last night broke the German
front for a distance of four
miles. The Germans are in re

fenses were made in two
places. Positions on a front of
three miles between the Double

posts were pushed well toward

, (Special to Farmer.)'
Hartford, April 14 Upon the
acknowledged , principle that bread
and bullets are equally essential and
that victory in the present crisis will
depend jentirely upon the food supply,
serious consideration is today being
given by . officers in command of the
Home Guard to a proposition that the
big organization be utilized during the
summer months in. the work of field
tillage and later harvesting while the
women of the state now beiig organ
ized under the National League for
Women's Service, be employed in "the
Senators and representatives at the
Capitol who have had the project in
mind have' submitted tentative plans
for the consideration of the Home
Guard commanders throughout the
State, " '
With eoneurrent thought through
out the country, fully acquiesced in by
suffrage leaders that the women of
America should shoulder the hoe as
well as the lighter burdens of busi
ness and industrial occupation which
men maj release that they can de
the harder work of raising supplies
for America, and that boys shall give
up their vacation periods to .become
of similar service, the proposition
has presented itself that the Home
Guard, filled with able bodied men,
may be of greater service in the
fields than as military.
What action the Home Guard com
manders will suggest to Governor
Holcomb has not become known as
yet, but that a strong appeal for use
of he .Home xGuard in agricultural
pursuits is known to be in a formula
tive process among the granges and
farmers ef the state at this time.
It is asserted by farmers through
out this county that while many of
the Home Guard may not have tech
nical training in agricultural pursuits
the members may readily take to the
lighter tasks at first, help about the
stables, barns, gardens and orchards
thereby releasing the agriculturally
trained owners of the farm for the
more intricate work of planting and
cultivating, ifuring the harvest season

"TREASON!" CRY OF.
Will Go to Germany "To
Convert Teutons, But Not

. Shouts of "Ireason!" resounded
through St. Mark's church, Bush wick
. avenue 'and (Beverly road, where near
ly 300 clergymen from 11 sections oi
New York and New England had con-
gregated. Attempts of the .young
Bridgeport ,clergyman to continue hia
paper and elucidate his patriotism
were howled down and he did not
remain in the assembly to vote the
resolution which finally pledged both
the property and the lives of the
Methodist Episcopal churches to the
country in the nation's crisis.
1 Mr. Weise returned to the conven
tion today and declared that, although
he hadf German blood in his veins, his
grandfather had fought' in the (Union
forces of the CiVil War in 1861.
VI thank God," he said in conclu
sion, "that although the German blood
is in my body, there is none; of the

desires my services to go into Ger

In . a fiery discussion in. the?. East
Methodist- conference being held In
New York this week, which bfttes
nearly every Methodist Episconal min
ister of "this: city; among '.its number.
Rev. E. F. Weise, pastor of the Grace
Methodist Episcopal church on " Clin
ton avenue, snraner a sensation , and
roroduced a, violent' uproar In the as
sembly when in the, attempt to prevent
him from reading a pacifist paper ne
declared: , ,v ; ,
' "If I am to choose between my God
and my country, I have already chosen
mv God!" -
Mr. Weise, who, has been pastor of
the Grace M. E. church -in this city
for the last two years,, succeeding Dr.
O. W. E. Cook, in this pastorate, re
sides at 458 Clinton avenue with his
family. He is 3 8' , years of age, was
born' in Missouri, a. graduate of -the
Kansas University and the Drew Theo
logical Seminary.: Prior to coming to
Bridgeport he preached in George
town, Conni, and. in the West. :
He Is considered In Bridgeport by
those who have been closely associat
ed with him to be thoroughly Ameri
can in principle though he has been
an .ardent advocate of pacifism. It
was through his effort" that Dr. Milton
S. Rees, evangelist was brought to
Bridgeport for the recent religious
revival. . -
; His attitude yesterday in falling to
unanimously pledge the church, has
come as a distinct surprise tof officers
and members of the church body and
it is believed here that the final re
ports will show that Mr; Weise's vote
is included In ' favor of the proposi
tion. -""-. ' -
Located in Long Island City by The
Farmer this morning, . Mr. Weise ex
plained his attitude in these words:
"I simply stated that my religious
views were unalterably opposed to
war; that . I was an. American, pa
triotic and - willing to do anything 1
can for America but that I cannot,
according to my religious convictions,
kill for it."
Asked as to, the reported . failure
to vote his church and services 'to the
government in 'time of emergency he
replied: ' . ;
"I was not there when the vote was
taken, I had attempted to read my
paper on pacifism but was ' shouted
down. The entire conference was
practically against me and my relig
ious belief, but I shall return to the
cdnf erence this morning and I " pro
pose to tell them that I do not lack
that patriotism they may doubt,, My
grandfather, who was born in Ger
many, fought in the Civil War for the
Union 'cause, and while I have Ger4
man blood in my veins, I thank God
that it is not of the Kaiser, I am
not even in sympathy with the Ger-?
jnan government and I am against
"Had I . been permitted to finish
my speech yesterday," he continued,
"I should haY told the ' assembly
that if my government wants to send
me to Germany to convert its people,
not to kill them, I shall be gTad ta
go even though it cost me my life."
On the reported statement: 'If I
am to choose between my God and my
country I have already chosen my
God!" Rev. Weise comments:
"I thinly that any man who believes
in God ought to do that. As I said
yesterday in defense of my state
ments, the person who seems a traitor
today is considered a patriot tomor
row and I have in mind both Wash
ington and Jefferson when I' make that

Iyrtn W. Wilson, rising to a point
of order said: i "Mr. Hill's charges
against the government of the United
States are an affront to the govern
ment of the . country, an assault upon

stricken from the record."
Judge Edward K. Nicholson, chair
man of the ' meeting, ruled that the

that, instead of naming the President
in" terms, Mr. Hill referred to him as
the 'power who governs." 1

Major . Beebe the1 military commander
In charge of the ' district, informed a
Farmer reporter this morning that the j '
immediate extension of the limit Is not
probable.- v .
His command has been strength
ened by the addition, of another, com
pany' which 'arrived in this city this , ' '
morning. He stated to the farmer;
today that In view of ''extenuating!
circumstances" namely the inability ;
of some of the barred families being
able to obtain houses In other parts , ,
of city, he has granted an extension
of the time set for their eviction. '
The restricted zone is fast assum
ing the character a stockade. Gates
are being erected at all streets leading
into the zone, virtually walling in the
factories and houses. All territory '
included in the district which
bounded by Boston avenue. Sea'
avenue, ' Barnum avenue and . Hallett 1 '
is under martial law and the supers -;
vision of Major Beebe. r t ;
' Gates already block entrance to the .
district at Barnum avenue and Hal- '-.:?
left sreet, Artie-and. Hallett street
and Helen and Arctic streets. All
other avenus and thoroughfares ,
leading to the zone 'are now being J
closed (by the erection of gates..
The Slovaks residing in the district r
are praised for their loyalty to th 5 . ,.,
United States. ' They desire to see' -
their race emancipated and are pray
ing that Austria Hungary will bede
feated. Nevertheless they are under
the protection of the Austrian gov- ' V
ernment unless naturalized and, a 1 '
strict observance" of the government " .
rule that no r.llen enemy can . live or
approach within ja. half mile of a mu- , ' ' ,
nition plant would bar them, from s.
this district, in event of war between - '
Austria and the United States. . '
Extending the boundary of the "
present zone a. half mile would places
under martial law and guard many .'
big factories in the district. It would
take in the American British Co., the
Holmes & Edwards Silver shop,, Chain
plant. Singer plant, Bridgeport Brass
Co., and the East Side - plant of the
American Graphophone Co, Part of V
main line of the New Haven road, on ' I
