BOMB OUTRAGE HAS CHICAGO’S POLICE ACTIVE Some Startling Revelations Made Showing Firm Hold Anarchists Have Tried To Take Chicago, May 17.—Police today searched for unexploded bombs be lieved to have been placed in a $500.- 000 apartment building in North Chi cago which was damaged last night by fire which police say was started by terrorists in connection with the Chicago labor war. Another de velopment on which authorities con centrated their efforts today was the confession said by police to have been obtained yesterday from Mrs. Margaret Miller, wife of John Miller, now under arrest as the alleged driver of the “death car” from which shots were fired killing two policemen early last Wednesday in the labor feud. Po lice connect the firing of the building with labor disorders through a man who warned two women in an adjoin ing building to escape before their building caught fire. He ran down the steps shouting "To hell with the Landis award.” The building, damaged by fire with an estimated loss of SIOO,OOO. was be ing erected under the Landis award, a decision handed down by K. M. Lan dis, former federal judge, which was intended to end disputes between contractors and the Chicago Building Trades Council. The structure was built by a contractor who denied re ceiving threats from labor men. The force of 100 men employed in construction are divided in two class es, steam fitters and masons working under the Landis award, and carpen ters and plumbers, working under the old union scale. That the fire was set has been prov en beyond a doubt, police say, for it was started on the first and second floor in various parts almost simul taneously. The questioning of Mrs. Miller, po lice say, brought a full confession from her in which the names of other occupants of the “death car” were given and it was substantiated by a previous confession said to have been obtained from her husband. Police said Mrs. Miller admitted caring for the occupants of the bandits’ car who were supposed to have been wounded by shots from the policemen’s pistols. Mrs. Miller also admitted sitting in conference with labor leaders at which bombings and attacks were dis cussed, police said, and admitted knowing that explosives were kept in her home to be used by labor men in their fight against the Landis award. CHILDREN IN SPRING TIME Mrs. C. Osburn, 7812 Hillside Rd., Cleveland, 0., writes: “My grand daughter was troubled with a cough for nearly two years. She took Foley’s Honey and Tar and her cough is now gone. It loosened the phlegm so she could raise it easily.” Foley’s Honey and Tar is just what children should have for feverish colds, coughs, “snuffles,” and tight wheezy breath ing. Be sure to get Foley's. It checks croup and whooping cough, too.

The result is, Mr. Andreds said, that the smugglers are tipping off the en- I forcement officers when the ships of a | rival fleet are due and many seizures | have been made. “Smuilgling," Mr. Andrews said, I “has been reduced 50 per cent due to [ the co-operation of the coast guard and other checks which have proved most effective,” he said. He added that convictions were obtained in al most every case growing out of the recent Florida clean up and that the federal court administered jail sen tences in practically every case.
