",r CONFIDENCE JEWELERS MTROKASE 18 North Fourth Street ARMOR PLATE CONTRACT BOOMS BETHLEHEM PLAN! 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 Kitchener.

It is pointed out that the allies had previously guaran teed the integrity of Turkey only if she remained neutral.

I am now in the hands of the Russian government whose in structions I am awaiting. "I am sorry that my labor to im prove the relations of the two coun tries has had so disastrous an ending.
