18 North Fourth Street
South Bethlehem, Oct. -30.—Official
news of the awarding to the Bethlehem
fctecl Company of contracts for 16,251!
tons of armor plate in four different
classes for the California, Idaho and
Mississippi, at a cost of $7.121.505,
has been received here.
It menus that probably 30 mechanics
now idle will have work for at least
two years. Other departments will joiu
in the boom to an extent, especially
the machine shops, where the rough
armor will have to be machined. This
will mean giving employment to more
idle men.
That the local armor plate depart
ment has not been compelled to close
down long ajo was due to foreign con
tracts. These are all about completed.
The company will be able to rush this
big order, as only a year or so ago it
enlarged the armor plate plant fifty
per cent. A high official stated last
night that several other big orders
cou!d easily be accommodated at the
fame time. It is believed that this re
fers to contemplated orders from gov
ernments in Europe.
England may be one of these coun
tries. for it was rumored here yester
day that the reason for Charles M.
Swab's sudden sailing for England last
week was due to a summons from Lord
Vast Older for Tinned Meat

a delicacy of feeling which wiH be ap
preciated, for he is. in fact, less inti
mately connected with Germany than

views the action of Turkey in bom

hands, her policy will not be one of
general aggression against Turkey but
merely a defense of her own interests

remained neutral.

What moved the Sultan's government

London, Oct. 30, 3.50 A. M.—The
correspondent of the '"Daily Mail" in
Paris describes how the Gurkhas (na
tive Indian troops) blew up a German
ammunition park, thus causing some of
the German coast batteries to move to
the rear. He says:
"All the efforts of the allies' artil
lery against these batteries had been
unavailing and the Germans were caus
ing severe losses when the air scouts
located the ammunition stores seven
miles behind the German lines.
"At night the Gurkhas detachment
embarked 011 boats which proceeded to
the mouth of the Yser and after a long
silent march the Gurkhas reached the
German ammunition stores guarded by
six sentries. Six silent figures moved
toward them, each carrying a long
knife. Then a sound, like the croaking
of a frog was heard and the six sen
tries disappeared.
"Shortly aftorward the general staff
of the allies saw a great Hash of light
on the horizon and heard a great ex
plosion followed by countless others as
the shells and shrapnel in their eases
exploded in all directions. The Gurkhas
returned safely to the gunboats."
London, Oct. 30.. 12.55 A. M.—The
"Daily Chronicle's" Paris correspond

offer, according to the correspondent,
was rejected.
The proposal, the correspondent savs,
was conveyed to certain influential
Frenchmen who were expected to act as
intermediaries. The proposal wa3 that

the courage of .the French armies and
never having regarded France as a
principal enemy, was ready to make

tles rage on all fronts with unprece
dented tenacity and stubbornness. Not
only the Germans but the Austrians,
despite their recent defeat, are fight
ing with intense eucrgv and it would
not'be surprising if tlhe Germans should
reinforce their fighting lines and again
attenrpt to assume the offensive. At
present, however, the Russians largely
retain the initiative."
The "Army 'Messenger'' announces
that the Russian commander-in-chief
has sanctioned the "formation of Polish
legions under Polish commanders. The
legions are furnishing their own uni
forms 'but the Russian government will
provide the arms, ammunition and com
missariat. Proclamations have 'been
