"There is no basis in fict," said he,

Washington Has Only 48-Hour
Food Supply, Mer
chants Say.
An embargo on foodstuffs coming
I into the Dfstrict of Columbia, because
j ot the many thousands of visitors and
i soldiers coming here next week, will
put Washington in a precarious con
dition. "Washington is only "from twenty
four to forty-eight 'hours ahead of
starvation," declared AVilliam G. Car
ter, of Golden & Co.,v today. "If we
fail to receive our regular supply of
foodstuffs each day. wc shall have
a serious fcituation here. I had not
anticipated that the. movenent of
troops and visitors In the city would
affect the food supply here, but if it
does Washingtonlans will soon learn
how much hoarding prevails here."
At the freight offices of the Balti
more and Ohio and Pennsylvania
railroads it was learned today that,
arrangements are being made not to
seriously delay the shipment of per
ishable goods Into the city, or ship
ments in less than carload lots. It
was said that a delay from two to
seven days on non-perishable freight,
including canned goods, coal, lumber,
etc.. was anticipated.
"I think there is little -ause for
ularm." said Charles J. Columbus:
secretary of the Merchants' and Man
ufacturers' Association. "I am ad
vised on carload freight the railroads
will do their utmost to permit their
coming and goings. I am assured
there will be no interference with less

wc got in the water she asked me
again if I didn't wish that Mary was

did. Then she got hysterical and
came toward me, and I hit her in tho
jaw with my fist, knocking her under

make any attempt to 'pull her out.
She came up and went down again
until she had come up three times,
then she didn't come up any more.
