Bridgeport PRICE TWO CENTS Advices Wright Stremlau's P Danbury Man Has Never Been Prominently Con nected With State Politics and His Prospective Appointment Is Considerable of a Surprise. Advices from Boston and New Haven mention the name ol David Wright, of Danbury, as the successor to Julius Stremlau, of Hartford, as director of prohibition enforcement in Connec ticut. Wright, while chairman of the Republican town com mittee in Danbury has never been prominently connected in state politics, and his prospective appointment is considerable of a surprise. He is in every respect one of the small town candidates whom the Roraback forces are reported favoring in the distribution of the state and federal plums. Harry W. Mackenzie, of Bethel, an accredited power in state Republican circles who served as chief deputy to Colonel Robert O. Eaton, of North Haven, when the latter was head of j the state welfar commission, is friendly to Wright and the two have been closely associated in Danbury Bethel politics for a number of years. The hand of Mackenzie is seen by many In the proposed appointment of Wright. As assistant chief of the state wel fare commission, which post carries with it the additional duty of propa gandist for the state Republican ma chine, Mackenzie has risen from a small town politician to one of the Influential powers of the state. He is generally reputed to be in a position to command practically any post in the state for himself, and largely in strumental in directing the fall of lu crative "plums". Mackenzie had been offered the pro hibition directorship, and because of his business connections it was at first believed he would accept. He is the (Continued on Page Seven Rep.

Paris, June 161 A series of com promise conferences were begun at the French office today to determine the amount that each of the Euro pean powers shall get from the in stallments of German indemnity al ready paid. This question was -to have been settled at 9pa, but some of the nations took exceptions to the pro rata shares that were allotted by the Supreme Council. Delegates representing the finance ministers of all the interested powers are taking part in the conferences. France, England, Bei-gium and Italy are sticking to the percentages allotted to them at Spa, but the small nations that were associated with the big Allies in the war are quarrelling over the share allotted to them. Representatives of the chief allied nations were disposed to lump the residue, after subtracting -the sums granted to Great Britain, France, Bel gium and Italy .and some of the little eounrries were seized with the fear that they were not going to get enough. Even Czecho Slovakia, one of the new countries created out of the old Austrian Hungarian empire, is claim ing part of the German reparations on the ground she declared war against Germany a few days before the conflict ended. After the delegates reached agree ments on the amounts to be distrib uted to the little nations the finance ministers will meet to approve the set tlement.

URGING ONE BIG UNION Proposal Made First Time In History of American Federation of L a b o r Lewis May Oust Gompers Denver, Colo., June 16 Pro posal of a ''One Big Union" in the American Federation of Labor has been made for the first time in the Federation's history. Two resolutions Introduced today provide for united action by all crafts affiliated with the Federation which would enable the body to operate in effect as one big union on matters vital to organized labor in general. One resolution would empower the executive council with the authority to declare a general strike to combat nationwide movements to reduce wages and union standards. The other .introduced by delegates from the West Virginia State Federa tion of Labor, declaring that "organ ized labor, having reached the point in its history of advancement where there must be a unit of understanding and action, one craft with another, or be destroyed by the t'nemy of our cause, provides that in their con tracts all crafts shall insert a clause which will enable each to come to the aid of the other and that all fu ture contracts entered into by organ ized labor shall expire simultaneous ly. Oecaring that the credit system of the country is being used by the great hanking lirms and insurance groups to crush organized labor a resolution introduced by Matthew Woll, eighth ive president of the federation, pro poses that the Executive Council make an exxhaustive investigation of the system and ascertain the possibili ties of pooling all the proxies held by organized labor in mutual insurance companies to combat the interest inimical to the unions, "with their own weapons." Politics and the Irish question will keep the convention of the American Federation of Labor seething from cow on, according to developments today. The movement to oust Samuel Gompers, for 3 9 years head of the federation, has come to life with a bang, the campaign to elect John L. Lewis, head of the United Mine Work ers of America, the largest union in the federation is now out in the open. Lewis supporters are actively at work in his behalf, making known that he is a receptive candidate and sounding sentiment. They declare their activities and Lewis' silence have filled Gompers with apprehen sion. Swift's Will Offered As New Evidence The trial of the case of Agnes Boucher against J. B. Klein et al.. executors of the estate of Frederick It. Swift, was continued this morn ing, with a great deal of time being occupied by the examination of At torney J. B. Klein on the stand for the defense. Damage are. asked of $20,000 because of an alleged libel ous article printed in the Sunday Herald on Dec 1, 1918. The defense has endeavored to prove that the executors are not re sponsible for th-e management of the Herald, frying to shift the blame to Richard Howell, the. manager. How ever, the fact that Klein -or the third executor. Samuel F. Beardsl-ey. must countersign all checks was advanced by Attorney Daniel K. Bre.nnan for th-e plaintiff to show that the executor-, handle the business affairs of the paper. Attorney Theodore A. Stciber, clerk of the City court was called, but most of the testimony he was asked to give bv the defense was objected to by the plaintiff, and" in most instances the objection sustained. He had no rec ords of the case, saying that in cases where minors were involved the judge kept all records. The will of the late Frederick R. Swift was introduced as evidence by the defense while Klein was on the stand. The will was made in Sea breeze, Fla., a suburb of Daptona, on Dec. 24, 1310, being filed at the coun ty seat of Volusia county. Fla., the Town of DeLand. Mr. Swift died the second day of the following April, and the plaintiff has tried since the inception of the case to prove that the executors appointed under this will have had control of the business of the publication since. c The will stipulated that Richard Howell was to own a third interest in the newspaper besides drawing a salary for managing same, the salary to be $3,000 a year. The plaintiff finished yesterday afternoon, and it seems probable that the defense will close today. A short recess was tak en at 12 o'clock. Investigating Why500Guns Were On Ship Xew York.

Ilindle, one of the best-known druggists in the city, sends to The Times, today, a letter -expressing his views concerning the Plaza, fie points out ft hat unless something is done with it, it is a waste of valuable property. His letter follows: Editor Bridgeport Times: Dear Sir: It is (evident thalt the Plaza, as it is today, is a waste of valuable property. It seems that it should be used in come manner tha. would be of the geratest good to the geratest number of citizens or else put in such condition thai; it could be a source of income to the city, from rentals. Unless it was extending to the waterfront it would be useless as a park. The original idea of a convergent street running from the corner of State and Main streets straight Ko the new lower bridge, in my humble opin ion, would be the best solution of the problem. Respectfully, W. P. HINDUS. President's Order Will Be Ignored Washington, Jane 16 The United States Harness company will ignore President Harding's order annulling the contract which the Harness com pany has with the War Deprtment, for disposal of surplus harnesses, Frank J.

Patrolman Thomas A. Tierney lies at the point of death in St. Vincent's hospital today, while the police are scouring the city in iiearcn of his assailant. John R. Bar rett, of 00 5 Noble avenue, who was taken into custody early this morn ing in connection with the affair, is etill being held for investigation, but it is believed that he has furnished a satisfactory alibi. On the chance that the gunman may have been wounded in the exchange of shots fired by himself and Patrolman Tierney, every hospital as well as physicians in the city have been notified to be on the lookout for the man. At noon today the police had made no arrest with :he exception of Barrett, whose inno cence has practically been estab lished.

Such is Sworn Statement Made by ''Em" Donnelly To Arbitration Board Report of Arbitrators Made Public Today Affidavit of Construction Company. In a sworn statement to the special board of arbitration, President Robert E. Donnelly of the Bridgeport Construction company claims "that no city official had ever owned nor does own any of the Bridgeport Construction company's stock," and "that no city official ever derived income by any means what ever from the activities of the Bridgeport Construction company." Say Stock Was Sold To Over 2,000 People That tbe. suiit brought against the i.iiurti Xln Tiiifacturing company of Bridgqport, by 314 stockholders is the result of a battle for stock con trol, was the statement made today by a local man who is in close touch with the situation. An indication that this fact might bo in part re sponsible for the trouble is contain ed in one of the 13 complaints, in which it is alleged that prospective stock buvers were informed that no one person would hold more than nine per cent, of the stock. The plainUffs charge that this agreement was violated when Joseph S. Lash secured 51 per cent, of the stock in payment for a license to manufacture the Cameron motor. It was said this morning, that the company's agentu sold stock to more than 2.000 persons, and that the plainUffs who have brought suit rep resent only a small minority of the stockholders. For this reason it is rumored that the case may never be brought to trial, though it has been scheduled to be heard during the September term of the Superior court. Business at the Stratford plant is not booming at the present time, ac cording to people who are in a pos ition to know, but in view of the ex isting hard times, is all that can be expected. R. M.

Germany Sends Allies New Note Berlin, June 16 Germany sent a note to the Allies today protesting against the inactivity of the Allied troops in Upper Silesia The German government cited the Treaty of Ver cailles as a basis for the protest. The Allied High Commission in Up per Silesia ordered the British ad vance against the Polish insurgents halted several days ago on the ground that the German volunteers should retire before the Allies con tinued their operations. General Hoefer, commander of the German volunteers, has begun to move back his troops and has already wt h drawn some of the German out posts, according to information from Oppeln, Stratford May Bar Jitney Buses From Its Main Street Under Rules Effective July 1 5 The latest reported fate of the jit- j A route said to be under discus neys that travel through Stratford is i sion would cause the buses leaving? that under the new rules effective, to L. go into effect July 15. is that the the Grecn to B across Wilcoxson buses are to be barred from Main avenue to East Main treet.

The statement was offered durlnjr I i the investigation of the arbiters on he questioned legality of the $3.000 account of the concern against tho city that formed the basis for the I tirst of the famous injunctions. It is- a direct contradiction of the varied reports that have been current to the effect that Donnelly's company was simply a shield for a group of city ofhcials who were deriving considera ble profit out of municipal contract!. I Donnelly's statement was disclosed this morning when the official report of Francis J. Brennan, Richard I. Neithercut and John K. "Williamson, who composed the board of arbitra tion, was maie public. The arbiters had previously returned a finding in favor of Donnelly and advised the payment of the bills by the city. In the report, which covered ail angles of the affair, was incorporated the report of Arthur X. Wheeler and Charles E. Weeks, who had been au thorized by the arbiters to audit the books, accounts and office records of both city nd the company. The audit; according to the re port, disclosed no unfairness in the vouchers or records bearing on th invoices in question, or the $32,022.63, nor did test checking on paid bills in other months of 1920, other than November and December when the bills were contracted, uncover any reason why the bills should not b paid. As another result of the investiga tion of tho arbiters and the auditors. Lhe following suggestions were con tained in the report: "That it does not look well for a member of che Board of Apportion ment to endorse notes of a company which has business parsed to it by the city without bidding and on a cost plus basis." "That ail city business be conduct ed according to the Bridgeport ordi nances or else have the proper waiver signed by the mayor. "That contractors take warning that business accepted from the city in an irregular way is assumed at tho contractor's risk. "That the proper way to investi gate the city's financial operations is by means of a state commission with full pwvvers, and the arbitrators recommend that this be done. "That the work represented tor these bills was ordered and authoriz ed in full knowledge that funds were not available. The work on these bills, and ones of similar character, were in excess of appropriations, and. it is obvious that business should not be placed thus loosely, regardless of any precedent that may have ibeeit established in that respect. Jf the law is not strong enough to protect the interest of the taxpayers then ad ditional safeguards should be pro vided to stop the practise of expendi tures above appropriations. Too strong emphasis cannot be put upon the point that spending of taxpayers' money without proper authorisation should cease." An affidavit of President Donnelly was attached to the report explain ing the basis on which his company has been doing: business with the city. The company, the affidavit testi fies, has been doing construction work for the city sinco 1918, and furnishes labor, machinery, teams and the su perintendence for construction work. The company pays for ail such items and charges them to the city at cost, plus a gross profit charge of 15 per cent., ercept on the machinery. On the lai.ter, there is no profit charge, the same being furnished at regular local charges. In addition, tho city pays compensation insurance at cost. The only supplies or material fur nished by the company are cinders, where needed in road construction work, and the cost, plus 1 5 per oent. profit, is paid by the city. Tho company makes no charge, the affidavit claims, for the services of President Donnelly or for office rent, cir-rical help, personal automobile or for small tools required in the work. The affidavit is verified by Jacob A. Courtade, director of public works. DKCISIOX IU3SERVKD. Decision was reserved by Judge Wilder in the case of FY-d-f rick Me Greenwich, against F. K.
