In addition to examining the persons arrested de partment of justice agents glanced over tons of literature, records and photographs seized in the raids. It would appear from some of the evi dence seized at the offico of the news paper Novy Mir, they said, that sailors plying between this country and Europe had been engaged as secret messengers to convey correspondence belween the "reds" in America and their brethren in soviet Russia. At the headquarters of the Communist World in Twelfth street, agents de clared, they found the latest "red" posters imported from Europe appeal-1 ing for the lifting 'of the Russian blockade and recognition of the soviet government. Wireless reports of con ditions in soviet Russia also vere found nniong the batches of materials seized.

It was announced that forty "husky, reliable" men, who have been em ployed in shipyards and other places had been engaged to stand guard over the radicals who will be concentrated at Ellis Island. Byron H. Uhl, acting commissioner of immigration, said today that the greatest congestion in the history of tho island would result from tho gath ering there of the rods arrested in last night's raids. He declared there were no suitable facilities for the detention of so many in addition to those already held. Uhl said that because of this' condition he had urged the department of justice and the bureau of immigra tion to make no more raids at this time. CACHE OF ARMS DISCOVERED. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. In New ark, N. J., department agents believed they discovered a cache of arms and equipment for destruction in last night's raid. Twenty-five rifles and some supposed bombs vere seized, bombs vere said to be similar in con struction to those sent through the mails to a large number of public men last summer. Agents also seized vast quantities of books, pamphlets and foreign language newspapers at New ark. Attorney General Palmer said today that he had ordered last night's raids on the communist and the communist labor parties only when department representatives had complete evidence showing that these two organizations advocated tho overthrow of the gov ernment by force and violence. Both organizations arc, comparatively speaking, now to this country. Their local societies were perfected in most cases not longer ago than last Septem ber. The attorney general indicated his belief that tho government activities against tho two groups had nipped their growth in the bud. ' AGENTS EXAMINE LITERATURE. NEW YORK, Jan. 3. Department of justice agents announced today that they were examining the literature seized in the raids last night to de termine whether Ludwig C. A. K. Mar tens, self-styled ambassador to the United States of the Russian soviet re public, was connected with the dis-( trlbution of the communist propaganda in this country. If this connection is established, they said they had suf ficient evidence to warrant his deporta tion. The senatorial committee in vestigating soviet activities 'will be notified of the result of the investiga tion. NEW YORK, Jan. 3. The first men to arrive at Ellis sland were placod in room 103, which vas occupied by Alexander Berlcman and tho other' male anarchists recently deported on the transport Buford. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3. Arrests In the nation-vide raid last night and to day had exceeded 4500 at noon, it vas estimated at the department of jus tice. More than half of this number probably will be held for deportation, officials said. Asgistaiu Attorney General Garvan, MRS. REID CARES j HARRISON, N. Y., Jan. 3. The bodies of eight members of the family of Banjamln Holladay, who many years ago was known from coast to coast for his great wealth and the lavish man ner in which he spent it, have been re moved from tho crypt under the little stone chapel at Ophlr farm, in Pur chase, where they had been for years, and placed in a vault at St. Mary's cemetery in Rye. The vault was con-; structed at tho expense and under the direction of Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, widow of the American ambassador to the court of St. James, who nov.' ovns Ophir farm. Mrs. Reid's action vas prompted byj the fact that many private cemeteries in Westchester county have been ob literated through changes in ovnership of the estates upon which they existed and the desire to prevent such a con tingency in the case of the Holladay family. Benjamin Holladay, who made his fortune through ownership of the Ophir silver mine in Nevada, died in Portland, Ore , thirty years ago. Most of his once great fortune had gone by that time Tho bodies removed today include his, that of his wife and Jennie Llnd Mary Holladay, Countess A. de Pour tales Gorgier; Paulino Cassandra de Bussierre, wife of Baron dc Bussierrc of Paris; Madge Holladay, Joseph C.

In every city where the raiding ma chinery vas set in motion, he said, success attended the efforts. Four; thousand warrants vere issued, butl the arvests exceeded that number. Besides the 2000 "perfect cases," Mr.1 Garvan said, federal agents obtained sufficient evidence to justify the ar rests of the others. Scores of parlor Bolshevists vere among those arrested in the raids, of ficials said. Those, it vas admitted, may have to be dealt vith under state laws. rr THREE VINK PLAN.

The call for the) league of nations meeting, which has; been issued, is regarded as a-simple j notification to enable the delegates to reach the appointed place in Paris in time for the meeting, formal notice, t of which it is still intended to have President Wilson issue, according to (the present program. ; ! It is pointed out in official circles' (that it is Immaterial who Issues the: I informal notice which will enable thel 'delegates to reach Paris in timo for the Paris meeting and that even the formal uotico Is a simple detail. The. issuance of the formal notice devolves tipori lrisluTnlT7ns6nbXn6'"Provis-" ions t)L tftrtreaty of Versailles, but it j is held that in case of his inability to. act in the matter any other representa-l tive of one of the five principal pow-. ers forming the executive council of the league could issue the notice. Baron Kurt von Lersner, head ofi the German mission here, has been ill for three days and the progress of the negotiations for a settling of the question of what clock and harbor ton nage is to be turned over by Germany as compensation for the Scapa Flow sinkings has suffered in consequence. The allied experts are continuing their comparifons of the German figures and the allied estimates, but a solution of the question involved in the differ ences between the two sets of figures is not clearly enough In sight, it would 1 appear, to confirm the feeling in the moie optimistic council circles that the peace protocol will be signed Jan uary G. That date, however, still re mains as tho one fixed for the cere mony of the exchange of ratifications which would put tho treaty Into effecL The question of organizing of the plebiscites to be held in territories provided for in the treaty also has been delayed in settlement pending a reply from Berlin as to whether the experts sent hero have full authority to act for the German government. The supreme council has received a request from the commission on pris oners of war for authority to proceed to arrange with the German govern ment for the transportation of prison i ers homeward as soon as the peace be comes effective.
