This was made plain e by Premier in the house of commons when he delivered his heralded speech on the necessity to restrict imports. The subinariue must be hunted from the deep, the premier declared. There is no surer way to victory. He pointed out the need of tonnage to supply the needs of the civil and military nation, and declared that the situation calls for the gravest measures. The premier declared that the government hopes to deal effectively with the submarine menace despite the difficulties in the way of hunting down underwater boats, and said that enormous sacrifices are necessary from the British public, as the government proposes to dispense with all nonessential importations to save Lloyd-Georgtou-nug- Western Union Newspaper News Service.

New York, Feb. 22. The cry of housewives unable to meet the advancing cost of food was heard in the ity's seat of government on Tuesday when several hundred women from the tenement districts stormed the city hall, screaming: "We want bread!' They came to place their plight Mayor John P. Mitchell. Many carried babies. They swarmed up Ihe steps and tried to push their way Into ttie building. Policemen on guard shut the gates. The leader was Mrs. Ma Harris, president of the Mothers' Vigilant league. She and three other women were allowed to enter and await the mayor's coming. "We are starving," Mrs. Harris told the mayor's bodyguard. "We demand help from the mayor. We will not be responsible for what happens if we don't get it." The leaders were told that the mayor would not be at his office, but would arrange a meeting later. "Sweet Marie" (Jans, one of Mrs. Harris' companions, addressed the women from the city hall steps and was arrested. le-for- This was the first time that It has been officially admitted that the German submarine war is crippling the British government. "The gravest kind of measures are necessary in this situation," declared the premier. "The government is hopeful of dealing effectively with this matter, but we should be guilty of the worst kind of folly If we rested tranquilly upon the realization of that hone. We have to face action and we have to deal ruthlessly and prompt ly with the tonnage question." The premier said that more than 1.000,000 tons of British shipping has been assigned to France. "If grave and speedy measures are not taken at once we face disaster," asserted the prime minister, we must find ships to bear Iron ore at all costs, for that is necessary for the making of ammunition which will win the war." e said that for some time there has .been a shortage of tonnage required for the general needs of the natioi, and even a shortage in the tonnage for military purposes. The nation should realize absolutely what the conditions were. "If we take drastic measures," he continued, "we can cope with the submarine menace, but if the nation is not prepared to accept drastic meas- Lures for dealing with the menace, dis aster is before us.

The department declared "there does not appear to be any sudden or recently developed emergency in the food situation in this city," although there has been serious rioting in various parts of the city. While the report asserts there is "obviously less dependency and real need that has been common for many years past," it also says "it is apparent that unless the present high prices of food are reduced or controlled, or as an alternative the income of families which now maintain themselves on $800 a year or less is increased by raise of wages or through relief agencies, there will be a constantly increasing number of people whose health will be jeopardized by their inability to buy a sufficiently nourishing food at the present prices." five-to- n Children love this "fruit laxative," and nothing else cleanses th- tender stomach, liver and bowels so nicely.

The speech was a serious and grave effort, the premier giving his audience little opportunity for applause and endeav-- I oring to concentrate attention on the serious situation with which the nation is faced, owing to the shortage of food stocks and the German submarine menace.

This he supplemented by the announcement that the land owner would be actually forced to cultivate his land.

But more than Dan O'Ma-- a called for his daughter that night, for ten minutes after her departure from the cottage Margery Golden's limousine drew up at the door. Margery's eyes widened when O'Mara explained the reason of his daughter's absence from home. "But an artist like Frank Aimick would never be able to work at night," she argued, with growing alarm. "He must have daylight for working in color." Dan O'Mara turned to the table at his side. "Here's his message, plain as day, written in his own handwritin'," was the puzzled workman's only explanation. Margery took the message In her hand and studied it. Then her color faded a little. "That is not Frank Aimick's writing!" she suddenly announced. "We must get to that studio as fast as my car can carry us. Peggy O'Mara, in the meantime, was being confronted by more than one surprise. The first came with her arrival at the Aimick studio, when the stranger who opened the door in response to her knock informed her that the artist was out, but would return in a minute or two. The second came with the quiet movement of yet another man who sidled up to the studio door and promptly locked and barred it. But the greatest surprise of all awaited her as she turned ing as a costume model, legar and two of iiis followers, In the meantime, entered Aimick's studio on the pretense of being a fire marshal's inspector, caught the artist off his guard, and carried him bqjund and gagged and helpless to one of the small back rooms cf the studio building. Peggy herself, before starting out in answer to that summons, was still sofliewha.c uneasy in mind over recent eventc. So she left word with her father to call for her not later than throne. "The palntlne it IS steel at us!" Legar, however, was no longer in need of that warning. Standing to one side of the mantel, close beside the wall, he attacked the huge canvas with his beating in the center of the picture at the same time that Peggy O'Mara, realizing that Bhe wa3 no longer being held a prisoner, caught up a teakwood tabouret and with it precipitated herself on the preoccupied Legar. He ignored that flank attack, however, for the Iron Claw suddenly found himself confronted by a figure of more importance than either the spindle-loggegirl or a painted gunman. Out from behind that tattered canvas had emerged a man wearing a yellow mask, tossing to one side a slender blowpipe as he came. Before he could regain hfs feet after that hurried leap from the mantel shelf, Legar himself had dropped the fire tongs and whipped a revolver from his pocket. This he leveled directly at the body of the Laughing Mask. But before he could pull the trigger, Peggy's tabouret struck against his outstretched arm, knocking the weapon up in the air. By this time the Laughing Mask was up on his feet, and face to face with his enemy. Before the revolver could again be brought into play the two had clenched. Then the Iron Claw went down before a clean-cu- t blow from his opponent. He recovered himself sufficiently, however, to roll to where his fallen revolver lay. But before he could level that firearm at his adversary the Laughing Mask, remembering that even the officers of the law were no longer his friends, dived out through the small door at the rear of the studio and disappeared from sight, for already the sound of O'Mara and his rescuing party could be heard as they swarmed up the stairs. The Iron Claw himself heard those sounds, drew himself together, and fire-tongs, d . r Ti Tlf" MH t Then He Pulled the Trigger. light. utes, I want you to get any help you can, and come after me." Margery stole along the shadowy roadside to the spot where she had seen Legar creep in through the bushes. She followed as best she could, found herself face to face with a that showed itself dimly in the moonlight, and after a moment's hesitation stooped low and crept into this tunnel, feeling her way cautiously along the smooth brickwork of its walls. She came to a turn, buttressed with heavier masonry, and padded along this wall until her groping fingers came in contact with a light switch. This, after a moment's thought, she turned on.

But as she stared intently at the wall she detected in one side of it a partially concealed electric button. She moved toward this cautiously, for she had learned of old to be wary of approach to any of Legar's fastnesses. Then, as she advanced, she came to a sudden stop. For she saw on the flagstone upon which she was about to step a small cross. There was also a minute crevice, unnotice-abl- e in its companions, about this quadrangle so suspiciously marked by its Cross. So she stepped carefully over the suspected area, crept forward to the button, and touched it with a tentative fingertip. The next moment a remarkable thing happened. A section of the heavy masonry sfiutting off the end of the corridor, at that touch, swung silently about on its axis, leaving an aperture wide enough for a human body to pass through. Tho girl, holding her breath, stepped through the ponderous masonry. This chamber, she saw, was empty, except for two mysterious strands of iron chain that ran from ceiling to floor, close against the wall, while against the other stood a deal table and a camp couch across which lay a But couple of very dirty blankets. along the floor at the far end of the room her quick eye detected a thin pencil of light. So she tiptoed quietly forward until she stood close to the door above this illuminated crevice. Then she stooped lower, listening intently, fox the sound of muffled voices came to her from the room wUhin. "I tell you we can t afford to fail In this move," she heard the voice of Legar himself announce. "The thing's got to be settled, and settled before morning!" "But how?" asked one of his followers. was now several Inches lower than the rest of the floor. And this, obviously, had released a steel arm which had swung suddenly forward and swept the startled intruder flat against the stone wall, holding him there as in a vise. And as he stood pinioned there a great block of granite, released by some hidden machinery, was slowly descending rrom the roof of the corridor. Margery quickly manipulated the chains and released the chauffeur. "Let me at em!" he shouted, brandishing the automobile wrench which he still carried in his band. "Ju3t let me at 'em!' "It's no use," cried .Margery, holding him back. "They have gone, the lot of them. And we've got to follow quickly, or there'll be a whole family meet a worse fate than yours might have been tonight!" She had taken the wrencn from his hand and was leading him out of the tunnel mouth by this time, explaining that he would have to bring his taxicab from its hiding place and at once start in pursuit of the Iron Claw. But these explanations came to a sud den and an unexpected ending, for Legar and his followers, skulking in ths bushes, caught that betraying sound of voices and saw a chance that was too good to be missed. They closed in Yet on the girl and the driver, when corthat nered, fought with an energy so explosive that the entire circle became involved In the struggle. It was Legar himself, and only Legar, who had the presence of mind to direct the attention towards the girl. He swung suddenly about and started for her. She saw him coming, raised the heavy wrench she still carried and sent it flat against his bony temple and took to her heel3. She jumped into the empty taxicab and headed for the O Mara cottage. So colorless was her face as the bewildered Dan O'Mara opened the doer that he started back In alarm. And her words were even more disturbtaxi-driver. sullen-spirite- d ing. "Come away!" she called out. "Come quick, or it will be too late!'' "And what's wrong now?" asked the astounded householder. "Get Peggy!" gasped the girl as she room. "Get her away from here, quick! The house has been mined! There's been a bomb left here, and any moment " She stopped speaking, for the pun gent smell of powder smoke had assailed her nostrils. Then from the open window, in which a somewhat neglected flower-bostood, came a faint sputter of sound. She ran to the window. Lying in she saw a heavy the flower-bocylinder of metal. Even before she caught sight of the time-fuswhich quietly hissed and burned at one end of the cylinder, she knew what it was. It was the infernal machine which Legar's agent had placed there to destroy the house. And at any moment the explosion might take place. Margery caught the heavy cylinder up in her hands. She even tried to blow out the fuse. But this was useless. Then she tried to tear it away. But this second effort was equally fruitless. And sheer panic took possession of her at the thought of her helplesness. The bomb dropped from her fingers to the floor. She made one instinctive effort to warn poor young Peggy O'Mara away, as the girl ran to her side. But instead of repeating that warning she let her arms close about the slender body as though in mute acknowledgment that she knew it was already too late. For the fuse, she could see, was burning down into the end of the cylinder itself. She even closed her eyes, awaiting the inevx stared frantically about the little " dumb-waite- d red-wheel- e. deep-seare- d d red-wheel- d red-wheel- "With two pounds of guncotton and a time fuse." was Legar's reply. "In. the O'Mara cottage?" asked another voice. "Yes; I want that cottage wiped oft the face of the earth, and the family with it! And I want it done before morning!" Margery listened, oblivious of the passing of time, as the conspirators behind the closed door continued to debate on their plan of action. Then she started, even as much as they did, when the sudden buzzing of an electric annunciator warned that intent group of an intruder's approach. It was then and only then that the girl remembered her parting message to the taxicab driver. All that was left her to do was to dart over to the camp cot, and drop down on the stone floor beside it. The next moment Legar and his men were in the outer chamber. While one of the men crept to a secret outlook crevice in the farther wall Legar himself stepped to one of the control chains which ran from floor to ceiling on the other side of the room, and by pulling one of these started into action some mysterious mechanism which the watching girl could She saw not quite comprehend. them run back to the inner room and stand waiting while Legar manipulated still another secret spring which threw open a hidden door in the back wall of that room. And that door, she surmised, led by some unknown passage to the outer world. x e itable. She opened them again, at the sound a sudden step. She opened them to see a masked figure dart into the room, catch up the smoking metal cylinder, and with one and the same movement hurl it out J rough the open window. The next moment a great detonation shook the walls of that house. The bomb had exploded. But the house of O'Mara still stood. And Peggy and her father stared at the newcomer, who, instead of staring back at them, stood intently regarding Margery Golden.

Nearly $3,000,000 is left by Charles P. Moorman, distiller and capitalist, who started life "as a poor country boy." When his will was probated it was found that the capital of one of the largest banks in the city provided insufficient security and the Louisville Trust Company was compelled to put up bond of $1,000,000 be- fore it could qualify as trustee. The bulk of the Moorman millions will eventually be used for the establishment of a home for indigent women. Charles P. Moorman, Jr., an invalid son, is to receive the income on about $1,000,000, which is held in trust, while Lucy Elizabeth Moorman, a granddaughter, is to be provided with ample living expenses from the income from another fund ef a million. The son's interest in the estate is an income for life only. The granddaughter, in addition to support, is to receive $200,000 as soon after she is 25 years old as this sum is accumulated out of her income. The two funds, on the death of the son and granddaughter, are to be used in establishing the home for aged women. The local Jewish Hospital and other charitable institutions are remembered. RAILWAY .
