Keyport, April 24.—For the second time in as many days shots
were fired at or near the sentries guarding the plant of the Aero
Marine Plane and Motor Company at East Keyport, last night. The
civil authorities are thoroughly aroused over the occurrence and they
are contemplating an increase of the guard about the preserve and
the land surrounding it.
The shooting occurred on the east border of the plane and motor
ftompany's tract, which is at the easterly head of Keyport harbor, at
10 o'clock last night. The shooting alarmed the militia guards on
duty at the plant, under Corporal Tettener, and has stirred the civil
authorities to action.
Several Shots Klrcd. (
The discharging or mo gun or |
runs was plainly seen by one of the |
sentries. The first shot was followed
in close succession by a second and,
a third. The sentries mado no return
fire, as the shooting was not on the
property which they are guarding.
The shots were heard by a d'etach
raent of the local Home Guard, on duty
at the water supply plant, and also by

detachment, but had escaped before
they could be apprehended.
Alert for Clues.
Following so closely on the shooting
near the pla.nt on Saturday night, the
Civil and military authorities are on tho |
alert for some clue which will lead to :
the identity of the persons responsible j
for the shooting. At that time a sen- I
try challenged a prowler, who flred a]
shot direct at the guard and fled, by ι
boat, it is believed, as the sound of a j
craft leaving the shore was plainly
discernible following the shooting.
There are six members of Company I„
Second Regiment, N. J. N. G., on duty
at the plant, and in all probability, they
will seek to liave their range activities
extended beyond the aeroplane plant,
In Order to prevent the sniping. The
plant, it is understood, is engaged In

Money and food were the outBtand»
lng points for Immediate considéra-·

backed up the Amerjcan govern»

In every word.
The details of America's first wa*
loan to England, which will be «οιηή
part of the $8,000,000,000 bonds fo*
which are about to be offered to tlie
public, were today to be up for final
decision between Secretnry of th·
Treasury McAdoo and Lord Cunllff,
governor of the bank of England.
Shipping, logically the next point
to be considered after money and
food, was to be stressed In the in··
formal conference between all th·
commissioners today. Consideration
of this question centered in the par»

Presilent Wilson will seal one oS
the principal testimonials of re
operation in the war today when h·
signs the seven billion dollar war loaQ
bill, which passes on three billions to
the Allies. As Great Britain is bankef
for all the European nations allied
against Germany, she will be th·
prlnolpal beneficiary of the loan and
will attend to parceling it out along
lines of common agreement.
SPANISH PARROT FAILS
AS WITNESS IN CASE
Possession of a parrot figured In 411
case which caused much amusement
In police court last night. Tho bird
was a witness. It talked incessantly
mostly In Spanish, but did not sa»
anything which Keoorder Plckerettlil
deemed material to the caae. At one
juncture the recorder turned to th«
parrot and said, "You talk a lot, but
say nothing. If you would only tell
who you belong to, we could settle
this case In α Jiffy." "Awk, Squark,
7,0 Qard Squam," was the parrot'· re*
The principals In the case were aa
Italian man, a Polish woman, Mret
William Barbarorofsky and a Greek l!J
terpreter. As tho bird spoke little
else but Spanish, It was not generally
understood. Possession wae awardea
to the Italian, after he had lndentlflea
It by what he termed "a little flngef
minus a nail on Its foot."
