JAPANESE PREPARING TO STAGE WARFARE On Expiration of Ultimatum to Ger many Operations Against Kiao- ' Chow Are Anticipated. Jokio, Japan, .Aug. zl.- Japan is quietly preparing for eventualities fol lowing the expiration next Sunday of her ultimatum to Germany demanding the withdrawal of German warships from the Orient and the evacuation of Kiao-Ohow.

Not a shot was fired by the Belgians when the entry into Brus sels was made yesterday by the advance guard of the column of German troops. After the departure of the Belgian troops, com munication between the capital and other parts of Belgium was cut off. Antwerp, the temporary capital, where the Belgians retired, is understood to be strongly fortified, and military corre spondents declare the preparations for its defense extend over an enormous area and the city is provisioned for a long siege. that this might , become necessary, the seat of government had already been transferred from Brussels to Antwerp. As Brussels is an undefended city and no longer the seat of government, the fact that the Germans may have occu pied it is not of great importwiee.

Several passenger were hurt, two women seri ouslv, when a Providence bound electric 'car jumped the track at Charles and Mills street yesterday, shot across the highway and ersshed agint the Mills street fire station, breaking in the big doors and part of the brick building. Mrs. Adeline Ouimette, aged 4 was thrown from the car, landing on her back in the street. She mas taken to the Rhode Island hospital with concussion of the brain. Mrs. Fred See. aged 31. sustained in- jurie to her back. The fire station was put out of service until the debris could be cleared away. Twombley, aged 25, a shoe worker, while drink erased last night, shot and slight ly wounded Mr. Edward B. Trafton, wife of a shopmate, and then tried to end his own me ov cutting his throat. The bullet tore the scalp in the back of Mrs. fnftons head and burrowed its wav to the neck. She is not in a serious condition, nor is Twombley, although he slashed his neck close to the jugular vein and lost much blood. Jealousy i the only motive the au thorities can assign for the shooting. Twomblev once lived in the same house with the Traftons. Last night he had been drinking heav ily and encountered Mrs. Trafton a she was going along Mill street toward her home with several friends. He called her aside, declaring he had something he wanted her to leave at his home for him. As she approached he took held of her and threw her to the ground, drew a 32-calibre revolver and fired. He then ran along Mill street toward Main street. Mrs. Trafton arose and staggered across the street, falling at the feet of Frank Jones, foreman of Fred Smith's box mill. While Dr. Fred A. Bragdon was dress ing the wound on Mrs. Trafton' bead, Twombley was making plan to do away v.ith himself. Stopping at the edge of the pond, he discarded his revolver, took off his coat and acted as if he intended to drown himself. Changing his mind, he hurried to the home of the Traftons and informed the husband of his victim that she had been shot, but did not tell him who did it. H then went to his own home and cut his throat Groping hi way from the house, with blood gushing from the wound in bis neck, the shoeworker stag gered to the door of the home of con stable Fred S.

The bursting of a high pressure water main on Main street here last night caused thousands of dollars' worth ot damage to several business tioust'S, put the Postal Tele graph Co. temporarily out of business and in front of the Postal's office gouged a great 50-foot hoie, the depth of which is at this time unknown. A heavy rainstorm was in progress when, almost without warning, 50 feet of sidewalk in front of the telegraph office sank out of sight, carrying With it a six-inch high pressure hydrant and in an inconceivably short time the base ments of the stores of Hardy & Mc Swiney, men's furnishings dealers; the Postal Telegraph Co., American Express Co., X.

None of these concerns last night would attempt to estimate their losses but all agreed that they would be heavy It was nearly sn hour before the wa terworks men arrived, and they finally had to shut off the entire high pressure service, leaving the business section of the city without fire protection. There is doubt in the minds of many a to whether th Pilgrim block has been undermined, and the police have the immediate vicinity well roped off to guard against casualties, the street it self having shown signs of sinking in front ot this building. THREE HELD FOR TRIAL Following Morning Call at House Graniteville. Deputy Sheriff Dennis Donahue of Graniteville arrived in town this morn ing with Mrs. Rose Pelkey, her husband, Peter Pelkey, and Mrs. Mary Lassor, all of whom were arraigned before Judge it. . Scott in city court on charges of keeping a disorderly house. Picas of not guilty were entered by each respon dent, and the cases were set for a hear ing on the forenoon of Friday, August 8. States Attorney ,1. Aard Carver appeared for the prosecution, and A. G. Fay appeared for the defense. Pelkey and wife and the Lassor woman are try ing to raise bail in the sum of $o00 each for their release. The arrest of the trio is the outcome of a morning call, which the officers made at a house in upper Graniteville at 3 o'clock to-day. On complaints made by the state's attorney. Deputy Donahue j and Second Constable James Little of Barns Town invaded the premises and arrested both the man and his wife and Mrs. Lassor. They were brought to po lice headquarters in Barre at j o'clock. Bethel, Aug. 21. The Fisher tannery narrowly escaped being destroyed by fire last evening. About 0:43 o'clock, flames had made considerable progress near the east end of the second floor of the finish ing department. The alarm was at once given, but so dry and oiNsoaked was the building that when the firemen ar rived their task looked hopeless, with flames bursting through the cupola and the windowds. Fire Chief K. C. Blaia- dellj-hia first and second assistants, L. H. Whitney and H. H. Shepard, and their men, bent themselves to their task with great energy and for half an hour waged an uncertain conflict but were finally completely successful. The outstanding fact of the contest was the good work of the tire pump, which was installed soon after the last tannery fire and had never been put to a supreme test until last evening. Al though warranted to furnish only three streams, it actually furnished five during mucu oi tne time, and as the pump, owned by the tannery people supplied another stream, there was adequate wa ter equipment to cope with the flames. The good judgment of the district was fully shown in this emergency, and the pump, though it cost $5,000 and the pur chase raised taxes for the dwellers in the fire district, easily paid for itself last night. The firemen, though handicapped by a late alarm, were aided by the coni- ous rain that fell, a brisk thunder-storm accompanying the fire. This gave rise to the impression that lightning caused the fire. This is not true, though the. cause has not been determined. The, firemen were also aided bv the entire absence of wind to fan the flames. AVhile the roof and walls of the struc ture are nearly intact, damage of several thousand dollars was done to leather And machinery on the second and third floors, partly by fire and partly by water. For many years, the only large firo losses in Bethel have been at the tan neries. In January, 1900, the large tan nery plant of Phelps & Harrison was almost totally destroyed, with an insur ance of $!H,000. In April, 1009, the still larger plant of the E. C. Fisher company was destroyed on the saime site, with an insurance approaching flii0,000. Tha present Fisher plant is somewhat small er than that destroyed in 1909, but it is equipped with the most modern machin ery and is worth from $125,000 to $150,. 000, including its large stock of hides and leather. Ordinarily, and in the ab sence of an unfavorable wind, a fire in the tannery does not seriously imperil the rest of the business section, be cause of the lower level on which it is built and the interval between them, consisting of the Central Vermont track age. During the nre of January, l!M.o, however, several stores on Main street were in peril until the tannery roof fell in. The tannery is Bethel's oldest indus- rv and has always been backed well by he townspeople. After both of the large fires, tax exemption was granted for periods of ten years, and the citizens contributed towards new buildings. Last evening's fire will probably curtail oper. tions for a time, though the fire did not affect the greater part of the plant. MUCH RESPECTED CITIZEN. LITTLE GIRL DROWNED. ACTRESS HAS MISFORTUNES.
