Among Patients Being Transported in American-Made Ambulances Equipped with Exhaust Gas Heaters. With the American Army in France, March fi. (Correspondence of the Asso ciated Press). Carbon monoxide gas has caused deaths among patients being transported within the closed bodies of some American-made ambulances equipped with exhaust gas heaters, it is announced. All precautions now have been taken to insure these vehicles being safe in the future. Investigation disclosed the presence of gas in lethal quantities within ambu lances, it having passed through highly heated iron parts and leaks in exhaust pipes. Poor ventilation was responsible for the gas remaining in the cloned bod ies. Orders now have been issued for lb boring of one inch holes at three inter val in a double row through the wooden front of all vehicles being used by tin. American expeditionary forces. Similar holes will be made in the lail-boards. All exhaust gas heaters in the future will be carefully inspected under oper ating eonditions and repairs immediately made upon those found even slightly de fect ivr. j All ambulance drivers and orjerlicsj have been ordered to investigate the con- j dition of all passengers within their ears at five-minute interval. This will be done by requiring an answer to an in terrogation. Particular attention will te paid to the condition of patients when ambulances are at a standstill with the engine running.

The door will be opened at 7 o'clock thi evening, the early hour being designated to allow ample time for the dancing that is to feature each evening entertainment. Thi forenoon that somewhat vast sec tion of urban settlement known a the French estate was thrown into a tur moil of excitement by the appearance of a deer which nrst intruded on cmltr-a-tion when it entered the nether end of Merchant street. Down .uerchant, across Tremont, over Eastern avenue to the Lincoln school campus sped the deer, part of the way pursued by dags. It was a real, live, honest-to-goodness hunk of animated venison, and householders who saw the member from Orange speed across their lawns did not invariably resist successfully the temptation to rail The Time ofiicc to report tho strange spectacle. rrom the campus, the deer, a light footed doe. somehow managed to reach Stevens branch, near the Trow A Holden plant. It so haiinenec'. that among the shop assistants who saw the doe float gracefully over the dam were several Goose Wreeners. Trier took up the chase with the result that the wanderer was corralled in the city hall rourtyard off Enterprise ailev. Providentially the deer has submitted tamely to captiva tion, and anyone who desires a glimpse of a doe that has done her best tor the Hed Cross may have that privilege by paying 10 cents at I utlcr Hros.' barn The money goes to the Red Cross. Messrs. Tobin, Gladding and Earl Cut ler are credited with inducing the doe to make its timely appearance in Barre in the midst of all this Goose Green ex citement, and once the animal left its native haunts in the bosky dells of Orange, those three cavaliers resolved to cash in on its visit to the city. I he doe was captured with little diflicully, once the intentions of the three husky mus keteers were made known.

Redmond, the Irish Nationalist leader, died to day. Death was due to heart failure following an operation here last Fri day for intestinal obstruction. For more than twenty-five year John E. Redmond fought for Hme rule in Ire- and and for a majority of that time he was the recognized leader of Ireland's struggle for liberty." As chairman of the Irish parliamentary party the .Na tionalists he exerted a nowerful influ ence in bringing about the creation of the Irish convention organized in July 1917, to devie a system of government for the island. When David Lloyd George, the Brit ish premier, in that, year offered two methods of settling the vexed Irish ques tion, it was Redmond who, as spokesman for the Nationalists, rejected the propo sition for a partition of Ireland and, in stead, accepted Lloyd George's alterna tive plan for the convocation of the Irish convention in which Irishmen of nearly all paities and crjeds might meet in the effort to compose their differences and draft a constitution that would af ford justice to all. Redmond was one of the delegates to the convention which tat at various times at Dublin, Belfast and Coik in 1017 and 1018. Born in 1851. son of W. A. Redmond, deceased, member of the British Parlia ment from Wexford, Ireland, John E. Redmond had sat almost continuously in the British House of Commons since lSSI. There his Parliament fight for home rule earned for him the aobri piet of the "stormy petrel of the House." Educated in Clongowos Wood college, Kildare, and Trinity college, Dublin LICENSE LOSES IN VERMONT Only Ten Cities and Towns Voted Yes on Local Option BURLINGTON FLOPS INTO DRY COLUMN Barre Stays "Wet" By a ' Much Reduced Majority Ten Vermont cities and towns voted yesterday in favor of tho licensed saloon, the number of uch communities being reduced from 18 a year ago. The only place to shift from no-license license was St. George, a town of Chittenden county having 100 population and being located 10 miles southeast from Burlington. Bur lington, the largest city in tho state, went from license to no-license by a ma jority of 211, while St. Albans, always tnc license coiuinn nereioiore wun one years exception, voted to try the dry regime. Rutland stays license, as does Barre. Jiarre is the only place on the eastern side of the Btate that will have licensed saloons the coining year. Rutland county still remains the stronghold of the license sent iment, lim ing four of the 10 towns and thev being Rutland, West Rutland, Fair Haven and astleton. Chittenden county hus three cense towns, Colchester, Shelburne and St. George; but it is hardly probable that the last-named will license the sale of liquor. Barre, in Washington county. Bennington, in Bennington county, and Vergennes, in Addison county, bring their respective counties into the license col umn. That leaves the counties of Cale donia, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, La moille, Orange, Orleans, Windham and Windsor so-called "lily-white.'' The cities and .towns which swung from license to uo-livenae were: Burling ton, St. Albans, Shoreham, Newark, Jay, j Canaan, Brunswick and Bloomfield.

From 1885 to 1801 he represented Xor'.li Wex ford, but in 18SJ1 he waa elected from Vaterford and hart been returned from that district aim genisiaUy without opposition. Red in on d s eloquence and uis grasp of parliamentary procedure won his early recognition in Parliament and whn in 1 si I the Irish party was disrupted, con sequent on the Parnell scandals, he be came the accredited leader of the Par-, nellites. In 1!HK) he succeeded in bring ing about an amalgamation of the two; leading nationalist parties and made .us position as Nationalist leader secure. Redmond was well known in the Unit ed States, which he visited in 100H und 1D10, and Australia, where in IRS,"! he not. only performed a great service for his party in directing the collection of a fund of more than ff.jU.tMsj hut tound a wife in the person of Johanna Dalton, New South Wales heiress and beauty. The Irish leader's first visit to thi country proved a fiasco, but his second, made for the purpose ostensibly of nt tending the convention of the Unit.'d States Irish league at Buffalo, met with great, success. Following his attendance at the convention, Redmond made a tour of all the principal cities of the middlewest and the Atlantic coast, de livering a series of addresses on the Irish question which was later held re sponsible for the British cabinet crisis of November, 1910. The speeches brought Ihe home rule question to a head. The British gov.-rn- mcnt took serious noiu oi iiic promem and a bill was evolved, which on presen tation and discussion in the House of Commons resulted in ji impasse be cause of the I'i.stcr opposition. This was shortly before the outbreak of the great war. With the entrance of England into Hm war, Redmond immediately defined ins position as squarely with the govern ment in the earnest prosecution of the war. His support of the government won the unstinted praises of Cardinal Giblions and the open und bitter con demnation of the Sinn Fein party, mem Ikis of which at a public meeting ac cused him of being a traitor to the Irifh cause. in the state. Mrs. E. H. Read, president of the Ennui Suffrage league of Montpclier, expressed gratification over the large participa tion by women in the election as fol lows : "Wc are highly gratified with the manner in which the women have gone to the polls to day in the city and the state. Only ."SO per cent, of those regis tered would have been considered a good shewing, but the fact that Hi) or !HJ per cent turned out is evidence that the women of Vermont wore willing and eager to exercise their newly acquired privilege of citizenship. It augurs well lor the tutiirc of sui frage in the state, especially in view of the fact that although the women's votes had been looked upon favorably bv the no-liiense people the question had not been made an issue with tho surfragists themselves."
