London, Jan. 31. Dispatches
received from Glasgow this after
noon indicate that the Clyde ship
yards strikers carried out their
threat to fix noon today as the
time limit for carrying on their dis
pute in a lawful manner.
Amid riotous scenes in George
Square the police used their batons
and the strikers replied with bottles,
cartloads of which had been taken to
the scene of the gathering, and used
them freely against the police. Forty
persons injured in the fighting were
treated at one hospital.
After the "riot act" was read,
three strike leaders were permitted

Aliens Guilty of
Offenses in War
Washington, Jan. 31. Imme
diate consideration by congress of
a Department of Justice measure
providing for the deportation of
aliens interned during the war and
those convicted of war offenses
against the United States was
urged today by Representative
Burnett of Alabama, chairman of
the house immigration committee
in asking the rules committee to
give the legislation a privilege
status for action in the house.
"The immediate importance of
this measure," declared Mr. Bur
nett, "is that when a treaty of
peace is signed, these people will
have to be discharged and allowed
to run at large in this country."
Action on the question was
postponed until next week by the

The governing power has been
usurped, says a Belfast dispatch to
the Mail, by the strike committee
and the city is governed from the
humble artisans' hall.
"There is no outstanding person

is a, capable committee of trades
union leaders, most of whom are
moderate and restrained. Nobody
can do anything unless he comes,
cap in hand, to this committee. Even
the police are helpless, and the chief
of police has asked the strike lead

GEO. CARTY HELD
FOR ROBBERY OF
Alleged to Have Taken Large
Sum While on Train; Signs
Statement Taken by
George Carty, Council Bluffs boy,
win oe arraignca in ponce coun in
the Bluffs this morning charged
with robbing a fellow soldier who
was returning with him from Camp
funston, where they had been for
mally discharged. In a signed State
ment given to Assistant County At
torney Northrup, Carty admitted
that he got the money.
The robbery occurred just as the
train was reaching Council Bluffs
yesterday morning. The victim,
Charles Vleck, a Bohemian, enroute
to the home of his brother at 2319
South Thirtieth street, Omaha, re
ceived $230 when he was discharged
at Funston, his savings from 19
months of military service. He says
Carty knew he had the money and
tells' a strange story of the loss of
$105 of it.
Vleck says Carty came intothe car
just before the train reached here
and in a loud voice declared he had
lost $70 and was going to search
all the soldiers on board to find it.
He made a pretense of searching
one or two and then came to Vleck,
who has an imperfect understanding
of the English language.
Vleck says after threatening him
he told Carty he had $205 in a purse
in one pocket and $1 in another and
that Carty took the purse, abstract
ed $105 and handed the rest back.
Vleck's protests attracted atten
tion and Carty was turned over to
officers at the Burlington station.
When searched Carty had only $70
and $15 was found hidden in the
lining of his coat sleeve.

Mr. Swift denied this.
"Do you know of any letter in

what went on at the White House?"
asked Mr. Heney.
Mr. Swift said he did not.
A letter from Logan to Veeder
was then read. In it the future ac

Veeder was called to testify. He
said he was unable to say who had
written the "Diamond T" letter.
"It may have been anonymous,"
he said, "or it may have come from

doubt very much if it was Tom
Logan who wrote that letter."
Mr. Heney contended that the
