AMBROSE SEEKS
TO F1NDM0THER
The Milwaukee Journal has 'taken
up the search which Edward Am
brose of that city has been making
for a long time for his mother. Am
brose, who lives at 617 First street,
Milwaukee, Wis., was left in a New
Tork orphanage, 175 East 68th
street. New York. When still a tody
he was adopted and taken out to
Wisconsin. As soon as he was finan
cially able to do so he began the
search for his mother, who he feels
convinced is still alive. She was
last known to be in Connecticut. Any
one who believes that he can help
locate the mother, whose name was
Marv Ambrose, is asked to commun
icate with J. G. Fletcher of the Mil
waukee Journal.
ELLIOTT IS

Serious Burns
New Tork, July 29 Howard El
liott, chairman of the Northern Pa
cific railway, was optimistic today on
his return from a 6,000 mile tour of
Pacific northwest and Canada.
- "Everywhere I went," he said,
"there was feeling of hope and be
lief that conditions would be bet
ter, and in few places did I find any
feeling of pessimism. The enonomic
upheaval in North Dakota seems t
have done its worst.
"The outlook for agricultural pro
duction is good. Minnesota crops

Dakota's will be considerable, al

Carrijeno, of 30 Oak street. Myrtle
Beach, are in a serious condition at
the Milford hospital today as the re
sult of burns sustained yesterday af
ternoon when a blow-torch which
they were using to burn the paint
from an automobile, set fire to fumes
from the gasoline tank.
As the fumes exploded, the. young
men were struck by a sheet of flame
which spread over their head and
shoulders, and arms. Their cries
brought neighbors to the rescue, and
the men were rolled in blankets.
They wcr then rushed to the Mil-
ford hospital for treatment. At the
hospital it was said today, that the
condition of VanOrden and Carri
jeno is serious but not critical. Both
are suffering from second degree
burns.
DEPRESSIONS
CAUSES FLOOD.
OF BANKRUPTS
That the present period of depres
sion has caused a flood of bankrupt
actions in the United State District
court, is evident from a perusal of the
records of the local office, in charge
of Judge John Keogh of Norwalk.
In years gone by the local orflce
has considered 67 an average num
ber of failures for a year. Last" year
the mark was not quite reached, but
from present indications the year
1921 will go down in the records of
the local office as the busiest year
since the otiice was established in
Bridgeport. i
In the first six months over 60 peti
tions in. bankruptcy had been filed,
more are coming in nearly everv dav
and before the present month is clos
ed the yearly average will have been
reached and passed. To show the
volume of business transacted at the
local office this year it is announced
that besides the postal card notices
and acknowledgements sent out that
over 10,00 notices have gone to the
various creditors involved in the pett
tions filed to date.

MUCH DAMAGE TO .
SPANISH PRESTIGE
Melilla, Morocco.July 23 Personal
narratives of participants in the dis
aster of Mount Abarran and Tensa
man indicate that the lack of precau
tion of the officers in charge of the
operation was responsible for much
of the damage done to Spanish pres
tige. On June 2, according to eye-witnesses.
Mount Abarran was occupied
by Spanish troops without the slight
est resistance. It is a position cov
ered with the thickest kind of ve
getation, among which large num
bers of men could find cover. No
attempt was made to recbnnoiter the
ground after the camping place had
been chosep but detachments of men
were told to lay barbed wire around
the camp while all the officers sat
down to a meal.
A short time afterward the sur1
rounding bush appeared absolutely
thick with Moors, who opened fire
on the group of officers, then pen
etrated the encampment, where they
were Joined by the mutinous 15th
company of native police.
Numerous acts of bravery were
done by both Spanish and faithful
troops, but the surprise was so sud
den that it was impossible for the
garrison to save the guns, which
were carried off by the Moors. Then
both Spanish and native troops .fled
precipately, abandoning rifles, bayo
nets and baggage.
The casualties comprising killed,
wounded and prisoners numbered
over 300 and, if the landing detach
ment of a warship and forces from
Cerinola and Melilla had not inter
vened to support the fleeting garri
son, it is" possible the Spanish would
have lost both Sidi XXris and Ten-
saman.
structors, for their tactics were quite
modern. Information has since
come from both the Spanish and the
French armies.
TOURISTS VISIT
OTHER COUNTRIES
Geneva,1 Switzerland, July 29.
Switzerland has reached the acut
stage of economic stringency result
ing from a too-favorable rate of ex
change. The tourist season, npon
which she depends to such a great
extent, opened with little prospect of
an improvement in the situation.
Tourists who usually -visit? Switzer
land during the summer, are going to.
French and Italian resorts.
The Swiss, themselves, to a con
siderable extent, are -abandoning
their own country to spend their out
ings in France where Swiss money
counts for twice its value at home, or
in Italy, where it counts five times
the normal value.
The crisis shows not only in the
absence of tourist trde but in indus
trial stagnation, a good many work
ers being already out of employment.
A few weeks ago it looked as if the
delegations to the second Assembly of
the League of Nations, Sept. 5, would
Bnd difficulty in getting lodgings here,
hotel keepers hesitating to" reserve
apartments for them because it would
require them to refuse tourists at the
height of the season.
It now appears that the hotels will
welcome the League delegations un
less there is an unexpectedly radical
change in the travel situation.

COURT FUTURE
NOW ASSURED
Topeka, Kan., July 29. After a
year anl a half of operation, the fu
ture of the Kansas court of indus
trial relations seems assured, Gover
nor Henry J. Allen declared in- a
statement today.
"Each of the 28 orders and judg
ments of the court rendered thus far
has been accepted by both sides of
the controversy, excepting the last
which is now pending on appeal be
fore the State Supreme court," Gov
ernor Allen said. "Employers and
employes alike are coming to regard
the court as an up-to-date method
for settling industrial disputes.
"The result in the teoal mining dis
trict has been most striking. Un
der conditions created by the Indus
trial court last year, the miners were
enabled to work 30 per rent, more
than the year before, with the result
ant increases in production of fuel
for the pulblic and wages to the
miners.
"Interest in the Kansas remedy for
industrial war is becoming world
wide. The pressing need for simi
lar legislation in other states has
become apparent, and many are pre
paring to follow the lead of Kansas
in providing fo justice in labor
troubles."

STREET MAY
' LOSE ITS NAME
Berlin, July 29.: "The Street of
Many Fakirs": the section of the
Friedrichstrasse between Unter den
Linden and Koch streets may soon
lose the. right to its exotic title, won
by virtue of the varied and ques
tionable commerce which thrives up- '
on its sidewalks and crossings, for an
agitation has been started to "clean
it u.p." -
Every article from jumping-jacka
to fine Oriental rugs may be pur
chased from the vendors who infest
the street, eternally crying their
wares.
The chief complaint against the,
character of the street, however, is;
that thieves use it continually as a
clearing place . to market their
"hauls." vNot infrequently a ragged,
unkempt man will ofEer most expen-.
