SHUTTING OFF SUPPLIES
Longer Can Germany Obtain
American Products Thru
London, Jan. 1. Germany is now
believed to be effectually blockaded.
According, to estimates : made here,
she now is completely cut off from
receiving, imports from other than
her allies, owing to the fact that the
prevailing shortage of foodstuffs in
neutral countries nearby have made
it necessary for them to withhold
from her any imports needed by their
own people. :
Virtually nothing is now permitted
to go into Holland or the Scandinav Scandinavian
ian Scandinavian countries from England, the
United States or any other of the
Entente countries. These now almost
control the whole world's exports oi
foodstuffs, feeding stuffs and raw
materials of every kind. 3
This stiffening up of the bjeckade
is attributed here to the policydopt.
ed by the United States in July of
withholding its exports from neutral
countries near Germany except on
terms under which they must cease
the export even of their own pro4ace
to Germany. This principle wasj ex
pressed in London in the phrase: ?We

German people have in the Lord of

been in vain." If that is so, the kaiser

Practical Joker Had Some Fun with
the Tallahassee Police
A special from Tallahassee to the
Tampa Tribune says:
As a result of what local Chief of
Police E. R. Isler believes to be a
deep-laid plot to blow up the state
capitol, Governor Catts has ordered
an adequate guard placed around the
state house grounds tonight and each
night in future with orders to "shoot
any unidentified person who attempts
to enter without giving a full state statement
ment statement of his business."
The governor this afternoon told
the chief of police to arm the men
who have volunteered for the purpose
"with shotguns loaded with buck buckshot."
shot." buckshot." Late Saturday evening the little,
daughter of Photographer Max Bein
found a note concealed and carefully
packed in an English walnut shell be between
tween between the capitol and her father's
studio. The note could not L be read
except by holding it before a mirrow
and contained this message:
"Bombs are ready; don't fail mej
capitol is unguarded; meet me tonight
Mrs. Bein, to whom her little
daughter ran with her find, could
make nothing of the note, but sent
for the chief of police. He deciphered
its language by holding it before a
mirror, when it became most legible.
He reported the matter to the secre secretary
tary secretary of state in the absence from the
city of the governor. When the night
force of State Comptroller Ernest
Amos went home, Walter McLin ana
H. Clay. Crawford volunteered to
guard the capitol Saturday night, and
did so, forcing all passers-by to take
the street, the chief having armed
each of them with a revolver.
Today Chief Isler called upon the
governor and his secretary, showed
them the cleverly prepared note and
handed them a full report of the
matter, in which he reminded the
governor that "we are at war with
the most treacherous and damnable
race on earth." The result was that
the executive came immediately to his
office this afternoon, consulted with
his secretary of state and private
secretary, and ordered the establish establishing
ing establishing of a large posse about the state
house tonight and in future. The
chief said tonight:
"The governor did riot regard it as
a joke and said that if It were this is
no time for jokes of that nature. He
told me to take every precaution to
protect the state property here."
As no bombs were found in the
capitol and no strangers attemptea
to enter, the authorities believe the
note went astray but that, had it
reached its destination, a shapeless
pile of brick might have told the
story this morning.
