LONDON, NOV. 20. - Hardly had the news of the recapture of Monastri by the allied armies reached London, before the importance of the victory was pushed into the background by startlings news from Rumania.

L. A. Warren Puts Thief to Flight With Bullets--Hold Up Men Are Abroad.

The fall season for "crooks" is on. Columbus crime circles were given an official opening Sunday night and the old, as well as new, methods of disturbing the peaceful sleepers were given their 1916 initiation. The season was opened and the degree work was in charge of a bunch of burglars who kept the police busy trying to round them up. 

Hearing a noise downstairs in her home, 345 St. Clair avenue, Sunday night, Mrs. Ada Walsh started to investigate. Upon reaching the dining room she found a colored man ransacking the contents of the room. As she approached him the man turned and grabbed her by the throat. After choking her the man released his hold and her screams frightened him away.  

ROB EAST SIDE HOMES.
Burglars also took up their profession in the east section of the city. Two homes, a few doors apart, were broken into. By climbing through a cellar window and gaining entrance to the residence of Barnev Croner, 619 Gilbert Street, thieves stole $22.75 in money, two watches, two diamond pins and a black velvet hat. The same thief is thought to have entered the residence of John Then, 627 Gilbert street, where he stole $2.10 and car tickets. Here he gained entrance through a kitchen window. 

BULLETS GO WILD.
A burglar who attempted to gain entrance to the grocery of J. A. Warren, 485 West Second avenue, was put to flight and dodged a few bullets fired after him. Hearing a noise downstairs, Mr. Warren called out the upstairs window, over the grocery, are

All Railroad Organizations Affiliated With A. F. of L. to Be Amalgamated.

BALTIMORE, MD., NOV. 20.-President Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor, refused today to comment on the reported plans for amalgamation of the four railroad brotherhoods with other railway labor organizations who are affiliated with the federation of labor, in a combined effort for an eight-hour day. 

His explanation that he could not talk about a matter "that will come before the conversion in due course." taken in connection with the announcement that the brotherhood heads were expected to address the federation convention tomorrow, was regarded as an indication that the plan will be presented to the convention. 

The federation executive council already has reported to the convention that the railroad brotherhoods were "assured of the support and the cooperation of the A. F. of [[paper ripped]] in their struggle."
