Kemalists Put Prohibitive Tax on Flour Supplies American Workers Ask an Exemption for All Relief Supplies From Customs Duties. CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. 8. (As sociated Press.) United in their deter- i mination to keep their troops in Constan tinople and not to meet the Kemalint de- 1 mauds for both miltary and naval evacu ation of the district, the allied high com missioners were prepared today to de clare martial law and take other tern measures to keep order if necessary. Any further infringements by the Turkish Nationalists against the re strictions placed upon them by the Mu dania armistice are certain to be dealt with speedily by the allies. Their vigil ance was tightened yesterday when the I'.riti&h, French and Italian governments, acting as one, authorized their repre sentative here to declare a state of siege if they deemed it necessary to prevent turmoil. Yesterday the British thwarted the at tack of the Kemalists to take over the customs revenues by deciding to operate thi part of the government themselves. American relief workers, irritated by the Kemalist attempt to tax their incom ing supplies of tlour so highly as to make it imtiossihh to unload them, have pro tested and asked that the exemption of relit f supplies from customs duties c-'ioe back.

Census bureau statisticians have been assem bling data on the number of prisoners contained in state and other penal in stitutions, and have just announced a "preliminary count of prisoners in Ver mont for 1022." The statement shows that cf the 12 city and village institu tions, seven reported no prisoners at all, and from the remaining five no reports were received.- Of course by far the greater bulk of Vermont prisoners were confined in the state prison -at AVindsor, the number there being given as 358, of loth sexes and including the house of correction, as against 3i5 on July 1, 101N. The remaining inmates, 112, were distributed among the county- jails. The bureau's figures include prison ers awaiting trial and jwrsons held as witnesses, as well as prisoner serving sentence. The returns were obtained in answers made to a circular of inquiry J winch the bureau mailed to the various institutions, and is merely a preliminary to tie complete decennial census of prisoners to le taken next year. Of the 470 Vermont prisoners, I3S were male and 32 female. The quota of the county jails was almost entirely made up of males, tl ere being 111 pris oners of the masculine persuasion and one lone female. A somewhat similar proportion rules in the state institutions w it ti 327 males and 31 females. ., A wet day. Republican hopes - somewhat damp ened, too. I'ratt leboro wasn't, the only Vermont town where premature speakership as pirations went into the discard.. One of the ' most significant features of yesterday's representative result here is the fact that the check-up of Dr. Lynch workers showed less than 500 of their. 'mimes to have voted. In other words, practically 800 voters about whom the Lynch organization had no knowledge, cast their ballots on the Iii- dependent side. , ' i There were many amusing things about yesterday's election. One man' ex pressed his preference rather decidedly by crossing out the name of the Repub lican candidate for sheriff and writing "anyone .else" underneath. . One enthusiastic worker was thor oughly disgusted when she found, after a long trip for two women voters, that they had cast their representative bal lot's without marking them. Harvey Goodell's defeat in Whiting ham was due in large measure, it ap pears, to the fact that his residence in that town is of a purely perfunctory na ture. Evidently the '"pocket borough'' argument was worked against him. Warm as the local representative tight was and it was pretty warm in spots there Was no evidence of bitterness or hard feeling about it. And nobody was more surprised at the outcome than Dr. Lynch and his supporters. Toward the end, when it was seen that the total vote would be around 2.500, there was a feel ing in Independent circles that it was too many to be anything but G. O. P.

CRUSHED BY LOCOMOTIVE. Three National Soldiers Killed and 20 Wounded Attack Soldiers While at Drill. DUBLIN Nov. S. (Associated Press.) An attack with machine guns and rifle from nearby house tops was made by Irish Republican, forces here against the Wellington military barracks this forenoon. Three National army soldiers were Willed and twenty others wounded in the lighting, which lasted two hours. The casualties suffered by the Republi cans were not learned. Numerous ambulances flew- about the district picking tin the wounded and tak ing them to hospitals. At noon the urea affected was under a strong cordon composed of troops from the Portobello barracks. At the time of the attack, which was opened i;t 0.3O o'clock, the parade ground was filled with troops tindr drill. The attacking forces, concealed on the roof tops on both sides of the barracks began a heavy fire at them, which the garrison replied vigorously. - ' " Troops were rushed up from the Porto bello barracks, and these joined in the fray, drove the attacking parries from their iiosition and pursued them -in armored cars and torries. a running fight being k pt up for some distance. The residents of the district hid away, panic stricken, while the fighting was in prog ress. When the attackers had been driven off the National army troops began an extensive search of the whole district.

When these payments aggregate $100. you receive, in exchange for your partial-nayment receipts, a Collateral Trust Bond for that amount, bearing fi per cent interest (or the current rate prevailing on these bonds at time issued, if other than, 6 per cent), together with cash for the amount of interest that has accumplated on the pay ments. Now then, why wait until you have saved $100 before investing, losing interest in the meantime, when this plan provides a safe and con venient method of investing small amounts at a very attractive rate of interest? Of course, if you already have $100 or more idle, you can buy a bond at once. We are referring to our PARTIAL-PAYMENT-FLAN which lias been in successful operation for a number of years. Many investors are now proud owners of COLLATERAL TRUST BONDS purchased in this manner. No one need feel bashful about buying investments on the partial-payment-plan. Houses, automobiles, furniture, and other things are purchased that way, and so are investments. A PLAN so simple as this, with no strings attached to it no interest to pay no fines to bother no red tape to cut, should makea strong appeal to you. What are COLLATERAL TRUST BONDS? They are safe, doubly secured, investments, formerly called Debenture Bonds, jfnd have been issued and guaranteed by the VERMONT LOAN AND TRUST COM PANY the past thirty-four years, during which time there has been no loss or delay of any interest or principal payment.

He says: "If cattle responding to the test are a real menace to public health, then there should be n" law making such tests gen eral throughout the state and compulsory.
