Plans for the fight on Gompers were laid by the pacifist labor element early this year. Gompers and his cabinet, who leave here today and tomorrow for Buffalo, are prepared for the battle. Veteran of many socialist attacks, Gompers Is confident he will defeat them again. Prior to the test on Gompers will come votes on his war and after-the-war programs for labor. He and the American Federation of Labor execu tive council have also formulated labor's peace terms and war alms which will be submitted to the con ventlon. The fight on these will show the lineup on Gompers candidacy. Gompers will claim for his policies the support of President Wilson. Maud Powell, violinist, was wel comed with great enthusiasm on her return after a long absence to her native city yesterday afternoon, and Theo Karle, tenor, whose popularity became established here at his first hearing last season, was received with equal warmth In the second of the concerts of the Ten Star Series at the National Theater.

Depth and a firm, commanding bow. with exquisite tone, one felt throughout the Tartlnl sonata, and In the Mozart "Rondo," G major, the Interpreter and the executant were both pre-eminent.

"but have not eliminated waste ana are eating more. If we could reduce our present consumption 25 per cent, or even go back to our pre-war standards, we could supply our allies with the food they need.' It takes twice as many ships to bring food from the other markets of the world as It does from North America, owing to the long haul, it was explained, and the other markets had been abandoned because of th Increasing shortage of shipping "If we can hold the western line and the blockade of Germany and furnish food and soldiers, we will win. This Is a war of food. Germany's food sup ply Is rapidly diminishing with her diminishing labor supply and a land from which the live stock has been removed, as it has been In Germany, must soon wear out.

Immediate action Is necessary, officials believe, to relieve present transportation dif ficulties. Orders curtailing shipments of coal to non-essential Industries are soon to be levied by the fuel administra tor. Fuel Administrator Garfield ex plained today these orders will In volve a large number of Industrial plants throughout the country en gaged In manufacturing articles In the luxury class, but he emphasised the point that he contemolates no tep that will mean a suspension of such Industries Gradual curtailment of their supplies of fuel, experts figure, will release a vast amount of coal for war uses. Officials have taken steps to In crease the car supply at mines. The car shortage at the principal produc tion centers will be greatly relieved under orders which become effective tomorrow requiring all trans-shippers of coal at New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Hampton Roads, and tributary porta to make shipments ti..ni,H th TMnwater rnal arrhlinirft- Spokesmeu for the operators and 'miners of the Pennsylvania anthracite coal fields, in conference here con' slderlng demands of the workers for higher pay, declared today that the negotiations were proceeding favor ably, and that sufficient progress had been made as to make It practically certain that there would be no strike of the men in that territory.

Chamber lain claims to have paid his brother. the Ute "Judge" Albert P. Chamber lain, for whose murder, on October 22, he Is held, they have received a shock. A strong box seized at the doctor's home, at Sunnyslde Farm, has been opened here, revealing that the heavy substance within, which was thought to oe sola and silver, waa a hlah- power microscope, mounted on heavy orass lurnuure. The microscope Is held by the authorities at Goochland, although It Is not expected to figure materially In tho case. Safe Found Empty. Another lead followed by the Com monwealth has failed to disclose ma terial evidence. A new Iron safe re cently purchased by Dr. Chamberlain, waa found In his home. It was neces sary to call In experts to remove the lock "and combination. The safe waa empty It was first thoucht that it nuv con. tain some of the cash. Jewels and secur ities, estimated at more than 00,000. the dead Judge ts said to have brought to Virginia with him when he left Des Moines. Iowa. Albert Lee Chamberlain, son and onlv child of the dead man. Is today search ing for that part of the Judge's diary, written before May 18. which is missing. It is tho belief of the son that Uk Judge, who u always so accurate in detailing in his diary each day's hap penings, that the missing document may throw some light on how the Judge dis posed of his fortune. 3Iny Use as Evidence, It Is a mooted question whether or not that section of the diary found In the Judge's humble tno-room home following the murder can be intro duced aa evidence in the trial of his brother. Dr. Chamberlain. The diary, while written In the Judge's onn handwriting. Is not signed. It re counts the fact that the doctor was bitter against the Judge because he had filed suit to collect an indebted ness of about $1,100 In legal circles. It Is said that while the document mar have no probative value. It Is probable that it will be admitted an evidence. The remains of the Judge have been exhumed, under the direction of the son. and will shortly be transferred to Des Moines for reinterment. MAJ. NEWMAN ORDERED TO ARTILLERY SCHOOL Major Oliver P.
