INDUSTRIES STOP |WORK-PRESID NT APPROVES ORDER WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.—America felt the war’s pinch perhaps for the first time when thousands of indus tries were stopped at midnight under the i uel Adminis tration’s orders, despite the protests predicting disastrous consequences and the formal request from the Senate of the United States to stay execution temporarily. Fuel Administrator Garfield signed the order last night and signed it with the full consent and approval of President Wilson. The President stated that he did not intend to inter fere and said that he believed that the people of the United States will shortly be convinced, if they are not now, that the order is necessary. All principal munition plants were not included in the order to suspend for five days ow ing to the fuel shortage. At 5:30 o’clock yesterday afternoon the resolution of Senator Hitchcock requesting the fuel administration to suspend for five days the coal conservation orders closing down industries east of the Mississippi river, was adopted by the Senate by a vote of 50 to 10. The resolution did not require any action by the House. The fuel order was signed by Garfield at 6 o'clock.

Sen ators described themselves in>a state of impotent indigna tion. Senator Smith, of Michigan, declared that the Sen ate should clip the wings of those who seek such authority which was never intended to be given.

Other representatives came immediately to the de fense of the President and said that he had shown a splen did guiding hand so far and if the Senators and disgrunt led representatives would stop chewing the rag on things they knew nothing about it would be better for the coun try.
