Paris, Aug.' 18 Warsaw is holding

beginning to repeat their old despair

France too far," fortified by the coun
cil of France's expert soldiers, now
have plucked up spirits with imme
diate effect.
The Polos appear to retain the in

Nevertheless the " situation .with

lefugeos declared it was possible to
travel many miles without seeing a

"A vigorous effort on the part of
the Poles would be sufficient to inflict
a decisive defeat upon the Soviet ar

Wrangel in southern Russia are caus

Two Bounded Up in Seizures
; By Federal Agents at - -'
' Stratford
The federal agents picked up two
women in the raids on rum runners
through this section last night.
The first seizure was at Greenwich.
Three Cadillac cars were coming
along the Post road, and were stop
ped by a local prohibition officer. The
first car speeded away but, 'the oth
er two were stopped. In the second
car was Rosie Farueni of 90 Isabelle
avenue, Providence, R. I., John Isa
belle of 92 Isabelle avenue and Louis
Ritzo of 72 Mott street. New - Tork
city. It was found that they were
transporting 11 cases of whiskey.
Driving in back of , the second car
was Joseph Milante, a commission
merchant of 90 Isabella street, Prov
idence, and Mike Ianamnantuono, 185
Federal street. Providence. They
were, apparently, guarding the sec
ond car.
The second seizure occurred also
on the Post road, at Greenwich, at
11 o'clock. A Packard touring car,
bearing a Massachusetts license, TJo.
327,107, was found to contain 50
gallons of alcohol. The car was
driven by Tony Binton of 95 Third
street, Chelsay, Mass. Joseph Te
rullo of East Boston, was a passenger
in the machine.
The third seizure . took place in
Stratford just at midnight. Frank
Greent .sicz of 127 Passaic street,
Passaic, New Jersey, was chauffeur
and owner of the Willis-Knight car
bearing New Jersey license No. 63,200.
He was accompanied by Miss June
Pavlick, 19 years old, of 27 -Quincy
street, Passaic. Miss Pavlick . ex
plained that she just went for a ride
with Greenbowiez. The latter told the
police that the stuff was owned by
George Yesko of 171 Passaic street.
Passaic, New Jersey, and Walter Nele
naut of 18 Third street, Passaic. The
couple were on their way to Chicopee,
Mass., with the load. They were held
at the Stratford police station.
As yet no date has been set for the
arraignment of the prisoners before
Commissioner Lavery. .
If somebody will change the wind
there might be a change in the wea

has held steadily in the south and

its rainstorm out of the reaches of the

past week or so has not been so high
but the winds from the "ocean have
brought Tjth them so much moisture
that the heat sticks and then. But
there is some reason to cheer up, as

period of 20 days from July 26 to
Aug. 16 inclusive with the figures of

cording to the records of the traffic
division at Police Headquarters show
that the numlfer of accidents and the
people injured are about even.
From July 26 to Aug. 16 inclusive,
during which time the tjitneys were
the sole means of transportation in

were 78 accidents, with 66 persons

Underwood Buys the Bullard
Plant Where, in 1888, First
Visible Typewriter Was Made
Official Announcement To
day. Means That Another
Great Industry Comes
to Bridgeport
Formal . announcement was made
today from the headquarters of the
Underwood Typewriter Company in
Hartford of the purchase of the for
mer plant of the BullarI. Machine
Tool Company on Broad street. This
deal has "been under consideration for
soma time. C. L. Rossiter, vice pres
ident of the Underwood Company, was
their representative in the- negotia
tions and A. H- Bullard, secretary of
the Bullard Company, acted for the
The price paid for thisproperty has
not been stated but it is understood
that the plant as it stands is valued
at close to $500,000. The Bullard Com
pany has occupied the premises for
the past 40 y-ears and the first building
was erected in 1877.. .
The Eagle Lock Company were the
first occupant and this firm was en-
aged in the manufactture or post
office locks and boxes.
Rather a romantic touch to this pur
chase is that back in 1888 Jerome Se-
cor, then a tenant of E. P. Bullard in
a part of the old factory, made the
first visible typewriter.
The Underwood company has made
no definite announcement as to the
time when it expects to occupy this
property but from present indications
it is expected it will be reaay to oe-
gin actual operations about the mid
dle of October.
The entire Bullard works are now
located at the fine new plant in the
West End with the exception of the
office. This will be moved as soon
as another structure now in process
of construction at the West End plant
is finished and this is expected to be
about the middle of September.
The formal announcement of the
Underwood company follows:
The Underwood Typewriter Com
pany announces having acquired by
purchase, the former plant of The
Bullard Tool Company, consisting of
nearly a square block of ground lo
cated in the City of Bridgeport, Conn,
with several buildings, the' newest
constructed in 1917. a modern 5-story
concrete, fireproof factory.
The property will be known as
Plant No. 2 of the Underwood Type
writer Company .and will be devoted
exclusively to the manufacture of
their latest product the Underwood
-Standard Portable Typewriter.
The main plant of the Company, lo--cated
at Hartford, Conn., has reached
its maximum production of its Stand

trolleys and jitneys both were run
ning, the records show, that there
were 19 3 accidents with 6 4 persons
injured, and two killed due to acci
dent. The first fatality was due to
a trolley car and the other to a horse
drawn vehicle. There were 46 jit
neys concerned" in the latter number
and 35 trolley cars and 264 other ve
hicles involved.'
Since the "jitneys have been run
ning as the sole means of transpor
tation there have been no fatalities
resulting from accidents and very few
injuries resulting. The figures show
that the number : of accidents result
ing from' jitney traffic since they
started to. operate are lower than
when both the trolleys and
"both were running.
152 for Jitneys, 75 for Trol
leys and 25 Vote for Both
Total Vote Now
365 to 312
The vote of the Singer company
employes taken yesterday afternoon
by the Times showed a preference for
the" jitneys by a vote of 152. to 75 for
the trolleys and 25 for tooth '
A vote will be taken of the em
ployes of the post office today and
the vote- will be announced tomor
row. In the ballots sent in to the Times
office the trolleys again show a big
lead, only a few jitney ballots coming
in. The office vote on the prefer
ence showed the total today as 290
to 160, but the Singer vote makes
the race more interesting. The total
of all ballots cast is: Trolleys 365;
jitneys 312. T
Two members of the Times staff
took the vote on the trolley-jitney
question, at the Singer-plant yester
day noon. It Wjag one of the hottest
and most uncomfortable days of the
season and all the operatives who did
not go to their homes for lunch had
hunted the coolest spot to be found
and were trying to be as comfortable
as possible during the hour when the
thousands of wheels stood still. On
such a day and at such a time it re
quired something almost akin to
courage to interrupt a man and ask
his opinion on what might possibly
be a touchy subject with him, but
with a very few exceptions all who
were approacMki were anxious to
register their sentiment in this im
portant matter which is before the
people of Bridgeport.
While one of the staff was station
ed by the main gate another went
around the yards and into some of
the rooms and offered ballots to the
men who were sitting in groups or
by their benches. Almost without
exception they signed. One man
went through a long passageway and
called a friend to be sure he was not
The . men approached, represented
all classes from common laborers up
to the most skilled mechanics so that
the vote is probably a very fair esti
mate of the sentiment of the whole
sho,p- "
number voting at the Singer plant
considered that both the trolleys and
jitneys should be allowed to do busi
ness under proper regulation. This
did not mean that they' had no pre
ference between thcmv for many of
them had, but they felt that the
transportation of the people of
Bridgeport could not be properly
handled in all its aspects by either
one alone.
It was noted that most of those
voting for the trolley added some
comment to the effect that it should
be forced to give better service and
there were-many expressions of bit
terness regarding the high fare and
the zone system. It could not hon
estly be . said that the vote for the
trolleys was a vote of confidence in I
the management of the system. It
simply indicated that in the judgment
of those men the time had not come

Say - That De
spite the Fight Here
He .Will" Get All the
EXe legates From
Bridgeport and They
Think He Will Get the
Nomination, Too.
Bitter fighting between the Wilson
and anti-Wilson forces in the primar
ies and city convention was forecast
ed today when both sides claimed to
have the majority of delegates lined
up. Preliminary work in prepara
tion for the primaries of . Friday
night was being carried out today by
both forces, and Mayor Wilson ileft
the city for a trip "somewhere in the
state." The mayor may possibly be
making this journey in the interests
of his own political cause, but he did
not say as much this morning. He
expects to return to Bridgeport on
Having evidently taken courage
from "inside'" reports, supporters of
the mayor went so far this morning
as to declare that Wilson will un
doubtedly secure the" nomination for
governor. This opinion was based
on the fact that the mayor's forces f
are sure, of getting all ten delegates
to the state convention, thus present
ing a solid front for their candidate
in Bridgeport.
Anti-Wilson forces, on the other
hand, were just as certain today as
yesterday, that the mayor is beaten
in his fight for the nomination. The
opposition forces claim to have se
cured more strength, and are pre
dicting the " defeat of the mayor in
the primaries and convention here.
The Eighth district today provided
grounds for discussion when it was
reported that the. mayor was being
favored by the delegates. ; This dis
trict had supposedly been lined up
against the mayor, and the anti-Wilson
men refuse to consider the re
port anything but "mere talk."
Fairfield Beach and other points in

Boston, Aug. 18 The explanation
by Carl Mays that the killing of, Ray
Chapman was due to a rough spot
on the ball Mays pitched which caus

the subject of a statement today by
Umpires William Evans and William
Dinneen of the American League. -
"No pitcher in the American
League resorted to trickerey more
than Carl Mays in attempting to
rough a ball in order to get a break
on it which would make it more dif
ficult to hit," the statement said. "Un
til the new pitching rules came into
force which put a severe penalty on a
pitcher roughing the ball, Mays con
stantly used to drag the ball across
the pitching rubber in order to
roughen the surface. Hundreds .it
balls were thrown out every year be
cause of this act."
The players of the Boston and De
troit clubs who were at the point,
of signing a petition to have Mays
banned from the game, today await
ed word from Tris Speaker as to his
opinion of the pitch which killed
Chapman. Several asserted that re

would not go to bat against Mays

Without John T. King's
Direction the City -Clubs
Have Found It
Impossible to Keep
. Various Parts of the
Republican Organiza
tion Intact.
.That the absence of further parti
cipation in Bridgeport politics by
John T. King, is the indirect reason
for the resignation of City Clerk J.
Alex H. Robinson as chairman of the
Republican -Tawnf.cqramltteea was -.the
general concensus among local poli
ticians today.
It was pointed out that with King
in the local field, the Republicans
had a strong man to follow, and one
who could be looked upon as a real
leader of the party's affairs. With
King out of the game in this vicinity,
the Republicans are left without an
organizer of sufficient strength to
gain the confidence of the entire
party. - ; - "(. . .. j
Several members are said to have7
shown an inclination to "fly," and in
view of these circumstances and oth
ers, Robinson has found his job to
be anything but a sinecure.
Although the names of several pos
sible candidates for the position of
chairman have, been mentioned, there
has as yt been no attempt to select
one man as Robinson's probable sue
cessor. Delegates to the last conven
tion, who will elect the new chair
man, have not decided at the present
