FIVE THOUSAND GARS FREED Cox Brandt Agitation Fr Fuel In the Northwest aa a Move to Enable Coal Operator to Get Price Higher Than Those Fixed Under Fuel Con trol Law Matter to Be Brought to Attention of President Wilson. Oolumbus, Dec. 13. Governor Cox announced that 5,000 cars of coal in railroad yards throughout Ohio which had been consigned to lake polnts'are afthe disposal of Ohio domestic anil commercial consumers. This announcement followed a clash between the governor and F. C. Balrd of Cleveland, director of the lake bituminous coal pool. Following a conference with Gof ernor Cox, J. B. Dugan, chief railroad Inspector of the Ohio utilities com mission. Instructed all roal roads In Ohio not to remove lake consigned coal from any yards without author ity of the commission. Governor Cox branded the agitation for coal in the northwest, while Ohio "literally was being starved to death," as an "unspeakable outrage," declar ing he has discovered it was a move to enable coal operators to get prices higher than those fixed under the fuel control law. He declared he will bring It at once to the attention of President Wilson. He said Dr. Gar field, federal fuel administrator should be called on to explain why he placed F. C. Balrd, Cleveland, at the head of the lake coal The governor disclosed that when he called on Balrd for the release of lake coal now Idle on sidings, Baird not only wanted the state to stand responsible for payment to the oper ators, but he said Baird stipulated the price which It would have brought If delivered to the northwest, where It could not be received until spring. Measures amounting to practical confiscation of lake coal In Ohio were resorted to by Governor Cox. As a result, the coal, which had been standing idle on sidings for weeks and could not be shipped to the north west until Bprlng, actually was mov ing, was being placed for unloading and being distributed to suffering families, institutions and utilities. Distribution was through county fuel committees, responsible to C. 1''. Mayer, executive secretary of the Ohio fuel administration, who, in turn, is responsible to the governor. Ohio railroads joined with the gov ernor and consented to move the coal as directed by him, through James B. Dugan, chief inspector of the public utilities commission. The system is similar to a clearing house arrange ment, with Mr. Mayer in active charge. AUTO THIEVES MAKE GETAWAY An Overland Roadster belong ing to E. M.

US. WOODIIULL lived In a one-story brick house, whose warm sit ting room in winter smcllcd of dry wood burning in an ulr-tlght stove, and of apples ripening in the nearby puntry. It wuh a warm, fruity smell thut no amount of onion or cubbuge cooking could obliterate. . Mrs. Woodhull, called "old" by her neighbors, is only sixty-eight, and as trim and slender as a girl. It is sad experience, ruther than years that wrenches youthfuiness from the heart und quenches the thirst for life, so It wus that Mrs. Wodhull spent most of her days quietly rocking and knitting. Her padded wooden rocker faced a daguerreotype that hung on the brightly papered wall of the cozy front room. Christmas was a lonesome time for the shriveled little old lady who had, forty years ago, to give up the curled gentleman la the daguerreotype, who happened to be her husband, to a wom an much younger, who happened to need a sweetheart. Christmas brings a train of memo ries, and Mrs. Woodhull lived over the old sad duys as she cooked and knit ted. She recalled the happy hours, too, which was worse. She talked to herself a good deal. "If that Armster girl had only let him alone," she would wall softly, "He was all right till she set her cap for him. I bet she's suffering some where. "But I must read my Bible and try to forgive her. Lord help me to for give her," and so she would pray. The children of the neighborhood liked to go to see Mrs. Woodhull for she always opened the cooky jnr or brought out a pan of apples. Of all the children In the neighbor hood who came to see her Mrs. Wood- hull liked Llsbeth Baker best. Her mother being dead, Llsbeth lived with her gloomy, rheumatic grandmother at the end of the street. She had only been here a year, hav ing been handed over from her moth er's mother, out West, to her father's mother at the end of the street. Lis beth was fair and wistful, and, like Mrs. Woodhull she was very much alone. Today, the day before Christmas, Llsbeth stood at the window. "My other grandma's coming tomorrow," she said ; "my grandma Hull. We Just got the letter today." "Two grandmas for Christmas," said Mrs. Woodhull. "You'll not come near me. What'll I do, all alone?" "We'll all come over and see you Christinas afternoon," said Llsbeth, dancing home to tell Grandmother Baker. Mrs. Woodhull became, in this way, the possessor of a Christmas plan.- "I must have a little treat for them," she said. She got out her good white dishes, and set the big table in the sit ting room. In the center she placed a blooming red geranium. "I'll make it into a Christmas tree," she Joyously exclaimed, and she wrapped Into three neat parcels a length of each of her knitted lace inscribing them with "Merry Christmas" and the name of each guest Next day she put the finishing touches to her table. She had a glass dish of candy, and one of nuts and raisins. At three o'clock Llsbeth arrived with the new grandmother. Grandma Baker couldn't come on account of rheuma tism. The ladles sat talking, and Lls beth hovered happily about Then she wandered out to the middle room where stood the fine table, and she came dancing in to hug Mrs. Woodhull. "You Just ought to see It, grandma." Lisbeth's eyes were shining. "We'll go and visit it, as soon aa the coffee is ready," explained Mrs. Woodhull, happy in the child's pleas ure. She excused herself and went to the kitchen. Llsbeth danced round and round the gay table, and Grandma Hull was left alone in the front room. Presently she followed Mrs. Wood- hull to the kitchen and closed 'the door between them and Llsbeth. "Don't you know me 7" she asked, sadly. "Has no one told yon? I was Llzette Arm ster. I have suffered more than you. He Is dead. We both loved him. May we not be friends 7" Through the closed door Mrs. Wood- hull could hear Llsbeth happily sing ing. She looked at Llzette Armster, 6haken with sobs. She put friendly arms about her, and soothed her with kindly, broken words. "Come, now," she said at last lead ing the way to the table with the shining coffee pot "Let's be merry. We must not spoil Lisbeth's Christmas treat" Everybody likes to sit in a comforta ble rocking chair. It is a most welcome Christmas gift. See the large assort ment of rockers at W. A. J. McDaniel's.

O., Dec 12. Almost priceless art treasures, a collection of a lifetime, made by Joseph G. Butler. Jr., multimillionaire steel manufac turer, were destroyed when Butler's residence waa burned. A servant thawing basement water pipes with a torch set fire to the thrtfe-story structure and in a brisk wind the flames quickly consumed the building and its contents. Estimates of the value of tho art works destroyed range as high as $1,000,000. A 3,000 volume de luxe library on early Amer ican life, autograph manuscripts of all the president from Lincoln to Wil son, several bronaes and luxurious house furnishings were lost Reduces Alcohol In Beer. Washington, Dec. 13. President Wilson issued a proclamation limit ing the alcoholic contents of malt li quors, excepting ale and porter, to 23 per cent He also ordered that the total amount of food, fruit and feed materials used shall not exceed 70 per cent of their average consumption of the production of malt liquor dur ing 1917. No person will be permitted after Jan. 1 to produce malt liquor without a license from the commis sioner of Internal revenues. SNOUFFER EXECUTED AT OHIO PRISON Pays Penally For the Murder of His Sweetheart. Columbus, Dec. 12. For cutting the throat of his 15-year-old sweetheart, Augusta Sickles Harding, at Worth ington, April 10, her murderer, Blaine Snouffer, 28, was put to death in the electric chair at the Ohio penitentiary early this morning. In the hours approaching his execu tion the condemned man talked con stantly of the sweetheart he had mur dered. "I am glad to die, for If I can not be with her in this world, 1 shall meet her in the next" Snouffer was pronounced dead at 12:09 o'clock by Dr. O. M. Kramer, chief prison physician, after there had been one electrical contact lasting two minutes. The maximum voltage was 1,750. Snouffer murdered the Harding girl at the home of Mrs. Minnie Snyder, High and North streets, Worthington, the night of April 10. The deed was committed after he had been to call on her earlier and was refused admit tance. He declared she had. told him of having another suitor. He became enraged and went to procure the razor which accomplished her death Firebugs Suspected. Cleveland, Dec. 13. Fires which have occurred at Superior Collieries mine, near Wellston, and one at the Delmore mine at Leetonia, Columoi- ana county, gutted both their power plants, practically stopping the work of the miners for an indefinite period.

TOUBLES TO BLAME Oil THE KAISER THE DEMOCRAT goes to its readers to day virtually without any local news. The closing down of the local light plant the first of the week put us out of commission as never before. All the newspaper offices were in practically the same dilemma but the Observer, which is able to man its press with man power. Editor Gilberg tendered its use to the craft and aided considerably in-solving a portion of the press prob lem, which was further alleviated last evening by the plant giving service for a few hours. But this failed to give tfle aid needed to get news set for the pa per, for the big Intertype we so much rely on for the final rush sat motionless for want of gas to heat the metal. Celina has never been pinched so completely for fuel and light since the town was a town. Everything has been hit but the furniture factory, which so far has sufficient coal and has its own lighting system. The electric current was dispensed with to conserve coal. For fear of crip pling the water service the action was deemed necessary, and rightly so. Last night it was given out that there would be light service from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. until further notice. While not giving the power service so badly needed it is thankfully received. It is also stated the gas situation is to be improved by Saturday, but the pub lia has been fooled so much that it is taken with a grain of salt. Draws Life Term. Youngstown, O., Dec. 10. Pleading guilty to second degree murder Wil liam R. Williams, 20, was sentenced by Judge W. P. Barnum to life im prisonment. Williams shot and killed John Sweeney and James Lynn on a lonely country road several month's ago. He was a deserter from the United States cavalry. By E Louise Heilgers (Copyright) HE bells were ring ing, for It was Christmas day. Out side upon the fro zen path a robin hopped, the sky was clear, cold nnd bine. The tall c h r y santhemums which fringed the lawn stood stiffly at attention like sentinels. A pale De cember sun lay like a ghost upon the grass. But Miss Emmeline Barton, staring idly out of the window, had no eye for the beauty of It all. Because It was Christmas day, she was dressed in lav ender silk and her mother's rings sparkled coldly upon her fingers. The orthodox holly and mistletoe were scattered in vases and behind picture frames about the room. Miss Emme line herself had but recently returned from early morning service in the lit tle church, tucked cozlly away in the churchyard. 1 But of the Christmas peace and beauty there was no trace in Miss Emmeline's heart Instead, she no ticed, with annoyance, as she stared out of the window, that some of the shrubs wanted cutting and that one of the gardeners had left a pair of shears on the ground. How Insistently the call of the bells came. "Be happy I Be happy i oe happy!" they seemed to say as a friendly wind carried their message far and wide. With an impatient movement Miss Emmeline turned from the window.

The terrible struggle finds Its focal point on the Ailago plateau, where Field Marshal Conrad Von Hoetiendorf's army 1 trying to force the passes which lead to the Italian plains. This movement, if suc cessful, would Imperil the Italian armies defending the Tlave river line. The Teuton troops so far have cap tured some 16,000 Italians, according to Berlin, and have auoceeded in pushing some distance into the Italian defensive positions. The bravery of the Italian troops, who have sacrl ficed themselves in large numbers, in blocking the enemy, haa kept the holding line Intact, however, as it receded. The Cambria area in France, In which the Germans occupied posi tions evacuated by the British, la wit nessing a let up in the intensity of the activities. As a result of the back ward movement the Germans an nounced the recapture of Gralncourt, Anneuz, Noyelles, the Bourion woods and heights north of Marcolng, and their unconstltuted gain has ceen to a depth of about two and a half miles over a front of six and a quar ter miles. Capture of 11,000 prison ers and 60 guns were reported. British forces operating in Pales tine have Invested Jerusalem. It Is said the city is now at the mercy of the British. In the east the front from the Bal tic to the Black sea is quiet under the lnffuenoe of the armistice negotia tions. These have been suspended seven days, aocording to advices from Petrograd, so that the allies may have opportunities to express their attitude toward the parleying. Roumania ne gotiated an armistice during the week. Within Russia, where the Bolshe viki are still in control of the reins of government, there are rumors of internal developments of potential im portance. One such Is to the effect that former Emperor Nicholas ha succeeded in effecting his escape. The British admiralty reported the loss by submarines or mines during the week of 16 vessels of more than 1,600 tons, an Increase of two over the number lost the preceding week. A feature of the week was the adop tion by the American congress of a resolution declaring that a state of war exists between the United States and Austria-Hungary. It was officially announced at Lon don on Dec. 10 that the city of Jeru salem had capitulated to the British forces of General Allenby. The 'city surrendered after it had been sur rounded. It had been under Moslem control for 1,200 years. Germany Is transferring great masses of troops from the eastern to the western front A great of fensive la anticipated. Petrograd announced. Dee. 11, that the Bolshe viki government had de clared war on General Kaledines and his Cossacks and had dispatched troops to the Don region to suppress the new revolutionary movement. London reported, Dec. 12, that mi nor gains were made by the Germans in the Cambrel sector, where they at tempted to drive a wedge into the British line. The attack followed heavy artillery preparation. The British held their line save at one point, where a front line position was penetrated. The attack was delivered between Bullecourt and Queant.

SIXTY-SIX MEN BELIEVED LOST Sims Sends Further Reports on Destroyer's Destruction. FORTY-FOUR ESCAPED DEATH Sinking of ths American Destroyer Jacob J ones by a German Subma rine Occurred Nearer the European Coast Than Was Indicated by the First Dispatches Young Officer Diet of Exposu-'e Othsr Details. Washington, Dec 11. Further re ports from Vice Admiral Sims on the torpedoing of the new American de stroyer Jacob Jones were received at ths navy department, but the reports did not lessen the toll of lives lost with the ship. Only 44 of 110 or more officers and men aboard are known to have survived, including one uni dentified man picked up and carried off by the submarine that struck tie blow. Admiral Sims' reports added to the list of dead Ensign Stanton F. Kalk. a young officer, whose name did not appear on the first roster of the ship's company. He died of exposure. The dispatches gave no further details of the escape of Lieutenant Commander Bagley and the other survivors, but they contained the names of 17 of the rescued In addition to those already announced. Secretary Daniels Issued this state ment: "Additional information received from Admiral Sims reveals the fact that the Jacob Jones was torpedoed at 4:12 p. m. on Dec S. She began to settle aft and finally sank at 4:19. The submarine was not seen until soma time after the ship sank. The submarine then picked up one snr rivor, whose identity Is not known. The destroyer was not so far from the European coast as was Indicated by the first dispatches. "Gunner Harry R. Hood of Atlanta. Ga., was killed by the explosion of the torpedo. Ensign S. F. Kalk died later of exposure. Twenty-seven ad ditional names of survivors have been received, bringing tbe total number saved up to 44, Inclusive of the man taken prisoner by the submarlns." Officials here entertain little hope that more survivors will be found alive. The bitter cold, which prob ably was the cause oT Ensign Kalk's death, makes it Improbable that oth ers who may hare escaped snd float ed about on rafts and wreckage through the night could have survive! such exposure. Every element worksd against the men of the destroyer. The report in dicates that the craft stumbled into the path of the submarine by unlucky chance and that the torpedo went home in such a vital spot that the vessel was sinking even as the flare of the explosion died out Night was at hand. There was no time to make provision against the cold and the sea as the crew leaped to the life rafts. Many probably had died with Gunner Hood In the explosion or the steam bursts that undoubtedly fol lowed it. The TJ-boat commander made sure before he exposed his craft that the destroyer had gone down. He took no chances of a last shot from her guns. Probably the single man saved by the submarine was taken aboard because the submarine officer desired informa tion as to the identity of the vessel he had sunk. j Another Ohloan Among Lost. Washington, Dec. 12. Seven one, William T. Glfford of Dayton, O.. not previously known to have been aboard the torpedoed destroyer Jacob Jones, were added to the destroyer's list of known missing, in a dispatch to the navy department from Vice Ad miral Sims. -I THIRTEEN NEGRO SOLDIERS HANGED Participated In Recent Raid on Houston.
