Tribute Is Paid to President's
"Business Battalion."
Head of Standard OH Company of
3ew Jersey IMeads for Men Who
Are Quietly Working Out
Government's Problems.
CHICAGO. April 11. Unreserved
praise for th high efficiency or Pres
ident Wilson's "business battalion"
was voiced today by A. C. Bedford,
president of the Standard Oil Company
of New Jersey. In a speech before th
Chamber of Commerce of tha United
"There Is too much for each of us
to do to listen to the wild stories of
th alarmist kind that seem to be the
invariable accompaniment of everey
war in every country." he declared.
I am not a defender of the men who
ar han?!ins the work of th Govern
ment, but I would be lacking in fair
ness If. after my own experience at
Washington. I withheld tribute to
those tried and proven generals of our
industrial armies who have grappled
with th Government's problem and
who ar silently, quietly and I say
her and now, successfully working
Uin out.
Caarww Gasoltaet I riea.
While declaring that th petroleum
Induatry will meet every demand mad
upon It by war time conditions. Mr.
Bedford urged th imperative neces
sity of conservation In th use of gaao-lln.
W. Lealla Corarn, president of th
corporation which built America' first
big concrete ship th Faith which
waa launched on th faciXio Coast re
cently, declared In a speech that the
ahip promises to prov a success in
very way.
Tha shipyard In which tha Faith was
built was put up within a week at a
cost of :2,r00. A similar yard for
the construction of steel ships of the
same tonnage S00 deadweight would
cost, according to the speaker, $100.
000 and would require a year's time to
Mr. Comyn said that at present there
Is need of Government aid in concrete
shipbuilding. If the Faith proves sea
worthy, with Government backing, con
crete ship ran be turned out in large
number without Interfering with any
other branch of the Industry or drawing
on material needed in building steel or
wooden vessels.
Great Lakes Plants Busy.
Tbe Great Lakes shipbuilding plants
are turning out two ships every three
days, according to John A. Penton. Ue
said that 35 boats would be started to
ward the Atlantic seaboard Alay 1 and
that 135 more would be ready before
December 1.
Dr. Charles A. Eaton, head of the
National service section of the United
States Shipping Board and Emergency
Fleet Corporation, said that he wanted
to eee representatives of labor and capi
tal go to Washington and place them
selves at the disposal of the Govern
ment. "I want to see a partnership cemented
between these men," he said, "which I
trust will never be broken asunder
when times of peace come."

Prisoner Admits Serving Several Priaoa
Terms, bat Disclaims Knowledge .
of Trontdale Job.
Jim Carlin, who Is held under guard
at the County Hospital while Sheriff
Hurlburt's force clears up the safe
cracking at the Fox Bros.' store at
Troutdale last Monday night, may
undergo an operation to determine
whether he was struck by a bullet, as
he stoutly maintains. Other suspicious
circumstances which might tend to
connect Carlin with the safecracking
job were brought to light yesterday,
the officers said.
An examination of the overalls by
Deputy Sheriff Schirmer showed them
to be streaked with what appeared to
be brown soap, of the same color and
quality used by the yeggs who blew
open Fox Bros.' safe. An analysis of
the soap found on hi overalls probab
ly will be made.
There was also found In Carlin's
pockets a spool of coarse, tolack thread.
A pair of shoes which the safe
crackers left at the detention home
Sunday night when they stole some
tools and a pair of shoes are patched
In one place with black thread of. the
same size and texture as that found In
Carlin's pocket.
Although an X-ray of th wound In
Carlin's left leg shows what appears
to be a lead bullet Imbedded directly
under the pelvis bone, Deputy Sheriff
Christofferson is not yet convinced that
Carlin was struck by a bullet. The
wound will be probed and opened suf
ficiently to remove the substance which
lies there.
One theory Is that Carlin may have
been struck In the leg by a small piece
of the safe door when the safe waa
blown open.
Carlin waa questioned yesterday by
Deputy Sheriffs Christofferson and
Beckman. He admitted that he has
served several "jolts," but refused to
say for what offenses or In what prison.
He denied that he is a yesrg and dis
claims any knowledge
