Discovery of the damage was made when the store was opened Wednesday morning. I. Koch estimates the loss at from $1,- 600 to $.?,000 and It Is not known at this time as to whether tbe loss is covered by insurance. The trouble Is said to be due to a valve on the water pipe leading to the tank of a steam pressor not being fully shut off. When the machine is In shape for operation the ■team pressure keeps thc water baok but as the steam pressure went down the water circulated through the machine and on to the floor. Seeping through the floor the water llrst reached tbe mezzanine flour where a stocl. of fine shoes Is carried. The pasteboard boxes cantaiulng the shoes fell to pieces when touched after being soaked with water. Tbe leather, perhaps, Is not seriously damaged. Continuing on, the water reached the stock of children's clothing on the flrst floor shelving and tables and here a big damage was done, the suits, shirts, etc., being soaked At this floor the water followed the floor to tbe front door but as the cases are above thc floor thc stock In them was not touched. The goods at the north end of the are, ln the basement, jilso suffered beavy damage and it will require •everal days to sort through thc Stock and get it in shape for selling.

('., Jan. 31.—Dry forces in congress scored another success this afternoon when the senate without a roll call passed the "Bone dry" Alaska bill. International News Service. New York, N. Y., Jan. 31.—The time of the. now famous "leak" of President Wilson's peace note was definitely established today as between 12:.".s'and 1: D4 o'clock on tbe afternoon of December 20. In those 56 minutes some one tipped off Wall Street and thereby brought about one of the biggest crashes the street has seen in years. Steady hammering by Sherman I... Whipple, counsel to the congressional committee which is investigating this leak brought tbis out at today's hearing. E. F. Hutton, a youthful broker, who admitted his firm received information from Washington, declared he made $32,000 by selling "short" In the hectic days between Dec. 12 and 23. The first information concerning the President's peacu move that his office received, he said, came from F. A. Connolly ft Co., at Washington, of wbich R. W. Belling, brother-in-law of President Wilson, is a partner. Contents Were Forecasted. Whipple took the telegram which Hut ton ft Co. sent out to their various connections on the fateful day to narrow down the time of the leak. He showed that at 12:58 a "flash" was put out saying it was "reported" the state department was going to make a peace move. Later a confidential message was sent out to clients stating that a message would be sent out, and gave a startling forecast of its contents. Hutton couldn't explain this. The messages were prepared, ho said, by one of his partners, George. A. Ellis, wbo Is now in the south for his health. A summons for his Immediate appearance In New York was issued. It will take him two days to get here, it was said. Hutton's boolip, which he submitted to tho committee, showed that Connolly & Company were not short to any great extent from December 5 to 22. Never in that period, according to Hutton's figures, was the Cnnnolly- Holllng concern, "short" more than 400 shares. Hutton declared that the fact that Boiling was a member of Connolly and Company in no way influenced his selection of the concern as was done. Hutton admitted under questioning by Representative Bennett, that he did not believe the 'leak" was very prevalent in the street. "As a matter of fact," he continued warmly, "I don't thiffk there Is any •'leak." The books show that Connelly and Co. lost Instead of making money during this period. If they had had any advance information they would certainly not have lost money. The books sptak for themselves." Representative Cblppcrfleld of Illinois, attempted to get Hulton to admit tbat tbe industrial stocks were sacrificed In the crash In order to gave tbe railroad*?, whlcb he said were protected by Morgan and other big In- Iterests. Hutton denied that this was true. I The inductrials were hardt?st hit, he said, because they were "top heavy" and selling for more than tbey were worth. International Hews Servfe* Cleveland, O., Jan. 31.— Miss Mayme Lange, 22, former postal clerk at Sa- I f | llnf-ville, pleaded guilty before Federal Judge Kllits today to charges of opening mail and abstracting $50 and v.-iuj fined $100 and costs. The girl looked as if she had stepped out of a fashion plate when she was arraigned before the court. She wore a long green coat, buff shoes, and a cute little green turban, set at a rakish angle', adorned her head. "I am perfectly familiar with tbis case," interrupted Judge Killits when District Attorney Wertz started to read the indictment. "Representations made to me on .both sides have been entirely sympathetic. 1 am disposed to give no prison sentence." Tho girl said it was lust the proverbial curiosity of woman that made her open mail addressed to other people. "I cannot account for my opening the letters in any other way." she said. "It wasn't because I needed the mom y." Miss Lange was caught on a decoy letter containing five ten dollar bills, mailed by Postoffice Inspector Owens. This followed complaints of Sallneville peope that their mail was being opened and read, and then scaled up again before it reached them. Miss Ijinge was accompanied in court by ber aged mother and Attorney XV. S. Totts of Lisbon. Sirs FAIRMOUNT HOME NEEDS SOME ATTENTION Cass BRITISH CASUALTIES REPORTED International News Service.

Jan. 31.—The "leak" investigation by a congressional committee is "bunk" in tho opinion of Allan M. Clement, Chicago broker, who has been disclosed in the New Yortc Investigation as sender of the famous telegram which predicted with startling accuracy tbe nature of President Wilson's peace note ten houra before it was made public. "Yes, I sent the telegram to E. F. Hutton," said Clement today. "The basis for it was mere rumor. LaSalle Street was full of reports tbat the president was about to send a peace note and I simply reputed this rumor and asked In the telegram for more direct information. Note that I sought information and did not give It. I do not know where tha rumors originated and I certainly cannot give any Information of value to the committee. "The whole investigation is a lot of bunk anyway." The ladles of the spent Tuesday very pleasantly and profitably at the Falrmount Children's Home. The ladies took their dinners, and spent the day sewing for the children, and looking through the buildings which we found were badly in need of repair. Many splendid reforms have been made, many more should be made. But this seems impossible on account of a lack of funds. We understand that this is dun to the fact that Columbiana county does not do ber part in maintaining tbe home. Can not they be compelled to? There are now 151 children In the home, M-l boys and 47 girts, '22 of whom aro little tots under four and a half years of age, reaching out their little hands for love. The ladles left late in the afternoon, fully convinced that a splendid missionary opportunity lay at our door. Also an appeal to Mr. Voter to go out and investigate for himself tbe needs of the home. And we feel sure he will want a voice in saying what shall be done for 154 small citizens of Stark and Columbiana counties. THE SEARCHLIGHT CLUB, By Mrs. Ellen Vogt BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN I. N. S. Staff Correspondent Washington, D. C, Jan. 31—Germany has promised the state department complete "proof" thnt British armed merchantmen systematically hunt Ger man submarines to ram or sink by can non fire. Specific instances of such actions al ready have been cited to the state department. However, up to tbe present time this evidence is Incomplete and as a result the United States has not utilized it to base a direct inquiry to Oreat Britain Secretary of State Lansing said today. The German government has prom ised however, that it will make out a complete case in its endeavor to have tbe United States class entente mer- chant craft, armed fore and aft, as auxiliary cruisers. It has cited to this government copies of alleged French and British orders to mer chant captains telling them to ram or sink in any way possible all sut- mairnes sighted. In addition, it' Is al leged tbat standing cash prizes of $5,000 per submarine are offered by all of the entente governments. Secretary Lansing said today that be has no information that such prizes are offered, "except for successful resistance to attack." He also said that this government was without any direct information tbat entente merchantmen, especially British are to be more heavily armed. So far as the suggestion that armed vessels shall leave their armament at Halifax is concerned, the secretary -reiterated his opinion that such action would have no weight. This government would pass upon the status of the vessel as it left the bome port, he said. He made no comment on the lnfor- Searchlight club j mation that came from German sour- cos, that taking off armament at Halifax would be a concession by tho British admiralty that such armament was Illegal. The United States ls still without reply from Germany'to its latest note dealing with tbe sinking of the Arabia and the Marina. The state depart ment has furnished the German authorities with evidence wbich. It claims, shows that the sinking of these two vessels was a violation ot Germany's Sussex pledges. Secretary Lansing said that the matter was now before tbe German authorities and tbat until their reply was received, there was nothing more tbe United States could do. A break with either England or I without warning. Germany waa closer today than at any time since the sinking of the Lusitae nla. Officials of the administration for the most part are taking a gloomy view of tbe situation. They profess to believe that no difference will oo- cur involving tbe United States as a result of armed ship controversy which cannot be straightened out through diplomatic channels, however, Germany Delays U-Boat War Unofficial reports, believed to ba thoroughly reliable. Indicate that tha German government ls holding ott Ita threatened submarine campaign against the armed merchant fleets of ber enemies in the hope tbat a ruling may come from tbe United States ex. actly defining the status of merchant* men armed fore and aft. The presi- dent and his advisors still are undecided whether thin ruling shall bo made now or after a specific case of a clash between a submarine and an armed merchantman has arisen. Tba German government has Indicated In an Informal manner its earnest doslro that the status of steamers armed for* and aft be laid down by thn United States now, before bitterness Is aroused by the loss of lives through one of theae vessels being sunk. Earnest requests are being msde la all sections of the country that ths government make some official announcement of its attitude on the efc fectlve arming of merchant snips. Writers on naval affairs make no effort to disguise the seriousness of the submarine menace. The only offlcial public utterances to indicate tha trend of government action was made ln the house of commons on December 14 when Sir Edward Carson stated that "tbe government Is earnestly considering tbe question of arming al! merchant ships." The suggestion has been made thaf merchant ships be sent out in fleets under the convoy of one or more wan ships. Whether this suggestion wilt be followed up is not known now but color ls lent to the proposal by ths recent naval conference in London tot) tbe."closer coordination of the British French, Italian and Russian navies. The chief Issues Involved are these.1 First—The possibility of diplomat*** entanglement with the United States. Sescond—The possibility of ths wholesale loss of life among non Mmt hatant seamen If Germany should de» olde to sink all armed merchantmen EDO SETTER ROADS Conton, O..
