    ARMED POLICE AND TROOPS ARE CHECKING ROADS AND RAILWAYS FOR SABOTAGE ATTEMPTS EVER SINCE ATTEMPTS WERE MADE RECENTLY TO BLOW UP TWO TRANS-CONTINENTAL EXPRESSES.THE EXPLOSIVES WERE ANALYSED AND EVIDENCE POINTED TO GERMAN MANUFACTURE, BUT THEIR SOURCE HAS YET TO BE DISCOVERED.OFFICIALS BELIEVE THAT ONE REASON WHY THE AGITATORS HAVE NOT BEEN CAUGHT IS THAT LOCAL PEOPLE REFUSE TO GIVE INFORMATION TO THE ITALIAN-SPEAKING POLICE.
