Saw Factory Turns Out 2,000,
000 Steel Bnrs, "Which Docu
ments Show Will Bo Made
Into Munitions
Company Official Denies Knowledge of
Destination of Product After
It Leaves Philadelphia
Two million steel bars for shrapnel
destined ultimately for tho German
army, nro being turned out by Henry
Dlsston & Sons, of this city, ono of tho
largest saw manufacturing companies In
' tho woild, according to documentary evi
dence published today by tho Now York
World. Tho order was obtained by Diss
tons from tho Bridgeport Projectllo Com
. pany, conspicuously Identified by tho
World with tho Gorman Government.
Officials of tho Philadelphia saw works
admit that they nro nt work on tho bis
order for shrapnel steel for tho projectllo
company, but deny any knowlcdgo of
where tho shrapnel Is to go when com
pleted. They will glvo out no Informa
tion as to when tho order Is to be com
pleted or when It Is to bo shipped.
Tho letter Unking up tho Dlsstons with
tho projectllo company Is dated July 9.
Jt Is from the Guaranty Trust Company,
of Now York, to a Gorman agent named
Ucrr Schmidt, asking htm for authority
to guarantee, on behalf of tho Dcutscho
Bank, of "Berlin, tho sum of $140,000 to tho
saw works for tho steel order.
Kdmund R. Ilobcrts, first vlco presi
dent of tho Dlsston company, said ha
knew nothing of this letter, but admitted
having asked tho Guaranty Trust Com
.pany to gunrantco paympnt on tho order.
"Tho Bridgeport Projectllo Company la
a new firm," he snld, "and therefore has
ho financial rating. We did not feel that
we could accept n largo order from n con
cern that had no rating and no stand
ing In the business world. For that rea
son and that reason alono wo asked the
Guaranty Trust Company to guarantee us
payment for our work. So far as tho
DeutschcsvBnnk, of Berlin, Is concerned,
we knew nothing of that house, other than
that It Is a largo bank. If tho Guaranty
Trust Company acted on behalf of that
Institution It was without our knowl
edge." The Bridgeport Projectllo Company was
Incorporated Starch 31 last with a cap
ital of 12,000.000 fully paid In. A number
of largo buildings now are being con
structed and It Is said tho plant will bo
In full working order by September 15, a
short time beforo tho Dlsston firm expects
to ship the steel bars.
Other correspondence published today
by the New York World purports tb show
. that tho Guaranty Trust Company, of
Hew York, supplied tho monoy for tho
erection of theso buildings at Bridgeport
nd other organization expenses. Tho
contract Is signed by Hugo Schmidt and
Poctor Albert, financial adviser for tho
German Government In this country, and
la approved by Doctor Albert, Captain
von Papcn, military attache of the Ger
man Embassy at Washington, and II.
Llnrihelm, legal adviser to Doctor Albert
and the German Government. It was

Another Item of war order nows made
public today Is that machinists at tho
Frank ford Arsenal havo been offered as
high ns $500 a month to glvo up working
for tho United States Government and
go to Russia. This Information Is sup-
plied by N. P, Allfas, chairman of a
. cpmmttteo of employos of tho Washing
ton, D. C.i Navy Yard, who called upon
President Wilson yesterday,
, The newest order obtained by Buld
wins is said to be for huge tractors ca-
cable of dragging heavy guns across a
battlefield. Prince Gagarin Is authority
. for the statement that Russia has built
KUna fully as largo and powerful as any
turned out by tho Krupps, but that his
' country .has not had the tractors to
move them with facility. Tho Prlnco Is
accompanied by his secretary, I. N. Pe
troffskl, arid 8. C. Talbot, a native of
England, put now a Russian subject, who
Is the financial agent In dealing with
manufacturers In this city.
Negotiations aro also under way, It is
sard, between tho Prince and tho J. G.
Brill car works for war munitions. Tho
Prince probably will bo In this city about
one month. IIo is said to bo a descend
ant of Rurik, the first Prince of Russia,
whose son was ut the head of the Rus
sian armies that captured Constantinople
at the beginning of tho 10th century.
The committee that called on President
Wilson from the Washington Navy Yard
told him that tempting offers had been
received and that unless tho old rate of
wages, cut eight cents a day by Secre
tary of the Navy Daniels, were restored,
there would be wholesale defections. A
largo Increase of about 23 per cent. In pay
may be demanded by thd arsenal and
navy yard men,'' the President was nptl
fled. None of the, Frankford arsenal men
has accepted the offers from tho Rus
sians, according to Mr. Allfas.

Remarkable Film Prepared
With Assistance of Hudson

By the Photoplay Editor
"The Battle Cry of Peace," a motion
picture propaganda In the interests or
national preparedness, dealing with tho
question of this country's defenses and
showing tho result of an Invasion of
America by nn alien army, lins had n.
private rhowlng In various cities.
It wns written nnd arranged by J.
Bttiart Blackton from Hudson Maxim's
book "Defenseless America." Noted pub.
He men throughout the country, Including
the Secretary of State Lansing, Secre
tary of War Garrison, Assistant Secre
tary of tho Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt,
General Leonard Wood, General Mont
gomery M, Macomb, president of the
War College, nhd Admirals Slgsbce and
Mnrlx nnd other authorities lent their
co-oporntlon and suggestions In perfect
ing the film.
Ono of tho moBt remnrkablo features of
the film, aside from tho prominent men
who have collaborated In Its production,
Is tho excellent way In which tho pro
ducers have kept to a neutral course
throughout. There are no names In tho
"lenders" which suggest any particular
country, nnd tho soldiers wear a uniform
that Is not In tho tenst llko that ot any
other country,
Exterior views of our coast nnd other
fortifications, with n thrilling picture of
the siege of Yfew York and Us final
capitulation, followed by scenes of vio
lence, arc among tho features ot this
clght-pnrt film. Some remarkablo views
of thu lower part of New York city and
the harbor taken from an aeroplane were
also shown.
New buildings aro constantly being
erected nt tho D. W. Grimth coast head
quarters, tho Rcllnnce-Majcstlo studios.
Workmen nro now engaged upon a largo
structuro to add to tho department In
which films nro dried. Postthe prints of
all Grlfllth features are to be prepared
In tho new building.
A largo carpenter shop, In which frames
for GrlfTlth features nro to bo prepared.
Is another building under construction.
Tho new quarters for tho carpenters' de
partment will employ twlco tho forco of
tho old carpenter shop.
Ten new dressing rooms have also been
added to tho largo number existing.
Theso arc mndo necessary by tho con
stant additions to tho Reliance-Majestic
stock companies-
"If It wero only possible to film tho
scenes of n photoplay consecutively," says
Lewis J. Cody, "I believe thoro would bo
a mnrked Improvement In screen acting.
Pictures nro truly wonderful ns made to
day; but I believe the future holds an Im
portant advanco In store,"
Mr. Cody Is ono of tho prominent players
now working at tho Balboa studios, in
Long Bench. Ho la a keen student of his
own work nnd never comes off location
or out ot a sccno but what ho wishes he
could do It over again, because ho rea
lizes that ho might Improvo It.
"I know that under present conditions
It Is Impossible to net tho scenes in tho
order of their nppenrnnco on the screen.
But some one Is going to devise a system
wheroby it can be done. Screen art Is
too big In Its possibilities to stand still
whero It now Is. Consldor tho first mo
tion pictures. In the light of them, who
would havo dared predict tho sort of pro
ductions now being mado?"

Police Court Chronicles
What would have happened to John
Zoblosky If his wife hadn't brought his
trousers to the police station is a ques
tion that is hard to answer without legal
advice. A proper respect for the dignity
of the law made It Impossible for him to
appear as he was. Now, the question
arises, haw long would John have had to
stay behind tho bars If It had not been
for the kindness ot his wife?
John Is no stranger to the police, but
they, never had an experience exactly like
this before. It started because John was
quite unmindful of the peace of the neigh
borhood and started to disturb It- One
manifestation, and not n new one, nay the
pollse, was to gsntly throw furnlturs
about the room. Neighbors complained,
and Policeman Rlcbw strolled by, broke
open the door and entered.

peoplo coming and going, and almost the

It was quickly explained, however, ns
were many other seemingly strange
things. D'Arnot'a aliln I., I ... .i.

at the lieutenant's suggestion they had
anchored oft tho llttlo landlocked harbor
to have another look nt tho llttlo cabin
nnd tho Junglo In which many of tho
officers and men had taken part In ex
citing adventures two years before. On
landing they had found Lord Tennlng

Hazef Btrong nnd her mother, Esmer

almost overcomo by happiness nt Jane
Porter s safe return. Her escape seemed
to them llttlo short of miraculous, and
it was tho consensus of opinion that it

eulogies and attentions until ho wished

black men received from theso friends

As yet tho newcomers had seen noth

"How surprised this man, whoso nnmo
you say Is Rokoft, will bo to see you,"
sold Jano Porter to Tarzan.
"Ills surpriso will bo short-lived," re
plied tho ape-man grimly, and thcro was
that In his tono that made her look up
Into his faco In nlnrm. What she read
there evidently confirmed her fears, for
alio put her hnnd upon his arm, nnd
pleaded with him to leave tho Russian
to tho laws ot France.
"In the heart of tho Jungle, dear," sho
said, "with no other form of right or Jus

mighty muscles, you would bo warranted
In executing upon this man tha sentence

It would bo murder to kill him now. Even

you again, my Tarzan. Promise mo that
you will but turn him over to Captain
Dufrannc, and let tho law take Its
course tho beast is not worth risking
our happiness for."
He saw tho wisdom ot her nppcal, and
promised. A half hour later Rokoft nnd
Tcrnlngton emerged from tho Jungle.
They were walking sldo by side. Ten
nlngton wns tho first to noto tho pres
ence of strangers In the enmp. Ho saw
the black warriors palavering with tho
sailors from tho cruiser, and then ho saw
a lltho, brown giant talking with Lieuten
ant D'Arnot nnd Captain Dufrannc.

"Who Is that. I wonder," said Tennlng
ton to Rokoft, nnd ns tho Russian raised
his eyes and met those of the npe-man
full upon him, ho staggered and went
"Saprlstl!" ho cried, nnd before Ten
nlngton realized what ho Intended he
hnd thrown his gun to his shoulder, nnd
nlmlng point-blank nt Tarzan pulled tho
trigger. But tho Englishman was close
to him so close that his hand reached
tho leveled barrel a fraction of a second
beforo the hammer fell upon tho cart
ridge, and the bullet that was Intended
for Tnrzan's henrt whirred harmlessly
above his head.
Before the Russian could llro again tho
ape-man was upon him and had wrested
tho firearm from his grasp. Captain Du
frnnne. Lieutenant D'Arnot. and a dozen
sailors had rushed up at the sound of the
shot, and now Tarzan turned the Rus
sian over to them without a word. Ho
had explained tho matter to the French
commander beforo Rokoft nrrlved, and
the officer gave Immediate orders to place
tho Russian In Irons and conllno him on
hnnH Ihn rrlllser.
Just before tho guard escorted the
nrlsoner Into the Bmali boat that was to
transport him to his tempornry prison
Tarzan naked permission to search him,
and to his delight found tho stolen papers
concealed upon his person.
Tho shot had brought Jane Porter nnl
tho others from he cabin, and a mo

sho greeted the surprised Lord Tennlng

taken the papers from Rokoft, and, as ho
approached, Jano Porter Introduced blm
to Tennlngton,
"John Clayton, Lord GreyBtoke, my

Tho Englishman looked his astonish
ment, In Bplto of his most herculean ef
forts to appear courteous, and It required
many repetitions of tho strange story of
tho are-man, as told by himself, Jano
Porter and Lieutenant D'Arnot, to con
vince Lord Tennlngton that they were
not all quite mad,
At sunset they burled William Cecil
Clayton beside the Jungle graves of his
uncle and his aunt, the former Lopl and
Lady Oreystoke. And It was at Tarzan's
request that three Volleys were fired over
tho last resting place of "a brave man,
who met his death bravely."
Professor Porter, who. In his younger
days, had been ordained a minister, con
ducted the simple services for the dead.
About tho eravo. with bowed heads, stood
as strange a company of mourners as
the sun ever looked down upon. There
were French officers and sailors, two Eng
lish lords. Americans and a score of sav
age African braves.
Following the funeral, Tarzan asked
Captain Dufranjif to delay tho sailing of
the cruiser a couple of days while he
went Inland a few miles to fetch hi "Be

Late the next afternoon, Tarzan and his
Wazlrl returned with tha first load of

give them the slightest clew as to the
source of his Immense treasure. "There
are a thousand that I MX behind, he ex
plained, "far every one that I brought
away, and wh these are spent I may
wish to return for mora."
The next day In returind to camp with

from the treasure cities of the Astecs.
"I don't know what minute my crew will

The nxt SMwnuig. as they were pre

"W1J4 beast are supposed to be de

Wnrm weather has a tendency to make
many persons pessimistic even when they
nro getting their money's worth. As a
result, they hcsltato about npprovlng any
thing, regardless of Its merit. It was
evident that they wero many of this
framo of mind at Keith's last night, and
although they laughed, they were stingy
with applnuae, which requires some llttlo
exertion. Any manager will toll you thnt
applauso Is as essential to tho success
of a show as commendation of good work
ers la to tho success of any other busi
ness establishment. IJut tho somewhat
passlvo nttltudo was speedily transformed
by Joseph E. Howard and Mabel McCane,
tho former musical comedy stars. Thoy
not only aroused tho. onthuslnnm of tho
wnrm wcathcrltes to tho highest pitch,
but stopped the show" with npplause.
Mr Howard sang n number of his song
successes and revived memories of tho

always packed. "I Wonder Who's Kiss
ing Her Now," nnd "Hollo, My Raby,"
semcd to nnd tho most favor. Tho au
thor sang rully a dozen songs nnd Miss
McCano had a different gown for each
number. Tho Blnglng was preceded with
a drawing room tetc-n-tetc. whero there
wns consistent comedy which made a
pleasing contrast with tho act.
Joe Jackson, who Is regarded ns the
best pantomlmlst on the Btnge, crcnted
no end of fun with ragged clothes nnd a
dilapidated bicycle. His act ended while
tho nudlcnco wns In tho midst of Its
laughter, and tho surpriso finish undoubt
edly cut ofT a lot of "pent up" applause.
Fisher and Green, In "The Pnrtncrs,"
wero suro enough business Jews. They
wore given vnlunblo assistance by Graco
Do Mont nnd brought out many laughs.
There was no end of good comedy In
"A Rag Tlmo Soldier." nresentcd bv John
and Mao ISurke, whoso act was Inter
spersed with many novelties nnd sur
prises. Robert Emmctt Keane dlsprryied
o.i.o vuu auuga una sioncs, ana nas a

act would loso none of Its quality, how
ever, by tho omission of tho "Ford" Joke.
Pearl and Ireno Sans presented a hu
mnn fashion book novelty. Thoy stepped
from tho pages of an immense stylo book
to sine their aongs. The act was dainty
nnd entertaining,
Tho Bolger Brothers got an abundance
of melody out of their banjos, Corcoran
and Dingle talked and danced successful

amazing stunts. Views of considerable

merit of the act. Carmen's Minstrels

A Bucolic Courtship
"Why don't you ask Hilda to marry
you, KbJ" asked Mrs. Edwards, who was
busying herself endeavoring to coax n
stubborn vine to grow over nn unsightly
porch pillar.
Ebenezer Edwards grinned sheepishly
and turned redder than tha red chimney
ndornlng the new courthouse. "Hilda
wouldn't look at me," ho mumbled. "I
guesa tho winter she spent down In
Wnehlngton must have turned her head
"Nothing of tho sort," Interrupted Mrs.
Edwnrds, sharply. "Hilda Hanson's head

was known, I'd wager my gold thimble
to a darnln' needle thnt she wouldn't give

remark. "Hilda has changed nnd I

Edwards, before he died."
Bbcneier Edward' face beamed tolth
the light of infinite joy.
"Not Hussars, mother, but Hessians,"
corrected Ebenezer, "and tho number of
men captured by tho Immortal George
wns not 200,000, but n bare 10."
"Shucks!" said Mrs. Edwards. "I don't
think so much of thut. but whether It
was 10 or MO tho fact remains that the

"Havo been rubes from tlmo Immemo

to win a girl like Hilda I've nn Inkling
thnt I'll have to get a hump on myself."
"What aro you drlvln' nt, Eb7" In
quired tho fond parent.
"I'll tell you in duo time," replied
Lbcnezcr ns ho stuffed a wad of to
bacco Into a corncob plpo and strolled
Into the garden.
The golden leaves of nutumtv had
carpeted tho broad lawn surrounding tho
Edwards mansion, nnd a brisk September
wind seemed to whisper tho death of
summer when Ebenezer Edwnrds hied
himself across nelds of ripened corn to
tho Hansons' attractive abode, nestled In
a nearby hill, to say good-by. Eb's
mind wns made up. He must become
polished and refined beforo hoping to
capture Hilda. "I'll win her." ho had
grated, "If I'm forced to wear a dress
suit huskln' tlmo!"
Something that might havo suggested
pain lingered for a moment on Hilda
Hanson's fair features when' the big
farmer took her hand nnd said gently.

and thought I'd drop around nnd tell
"Away?" repeated Hilda. "Where?"
' Cornell. I've studied hard and want
to tnko a year or so In the agricultural
school. Up there they mako a modern
farmer of you, nnd a gentleman ns well,

"Tho Idea!" pouted Hilda, "why you're
acknowledged to be tho best farmer In
Clay county, and "
"Nonsense!" srlnned Rhunnui. TT,i,rn-i.
"Anyhow, the rubes up our way are
antiquated In their methods."
The fact was, however, that Farmer
Edwards' solo idea in going North was
to acquire the suavity nnd refinement of
his city brother. The rough edges must
be worn off and then, perhaps, the
fountain of lovo in Hilda's heart would be
loosed. Ebenezer longed to convey the
ambition of a lifetime to the little girl
of tho hills, but something deterred him

mumbled an unintelligible good-by nnd
strode down the tan-bark path. A
golden harvest moon was riding over the
tranquil heavens, and somewhere a
night bird was singing a sonata to the
breeze, but Ebenczers big henrt was far
too full to appreciate the glories of the
autumn evening. To him the earth was
dead, tho birds had flown, for he had
burled the Joys of life In the little ham
let he was leaving behind, and Hilda
nlone could resurrect them.
A heavy winter set In and Jack Frost's
relentless hnnd gripped Clay county for
bIx weary months. But early In April
the kindly sun shono forth, the frozen
ground softened as If by magic, and

Hilda Hanson was planting n rose bust!
beside the garden fence when something
caused her to look up and her heart grjYa
a tremendous bound. But then a native
Pride caused her to regain control of
those feelings that were threatening to
run nwny with her, and she said sternly,
Ebenezer Edwnrds, you enn never cross
into these grounds until you have
changed those clothes!"
For tho nrst tlmo In his life the big
farmer was too amazod lo speak, and ror
a moment he stood as If petrified "Why,

"Don't mention Wnshlngton or nny eity,
