NEW YORK,, Jan. 3. 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

It was announced that forty "husky,

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
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.
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,
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
Benjamin Holladay, who made his
fortune through ownership of the
Ophir silver mine in Nevada, died in

in charge of the raids; said moro thani
2000 persons were held on "perfect!
cases" and that the raid promised to
bo not only the greatest in scope, butl
the greatest in results of any in his
tory. 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

Pres. Wilson Expected
to Issee FisiaS Notice
to Delegates
PARIS, Jan. 3. 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

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.
