Committee of Five Lifts
Ban on Trading in State
and City Bonds.

BIO BOARD SEAT
Embargo on Listed Indus?
trial and Railroad Issues
Will Shortly Be Raised.
That Stork Fxchange governors and
bankers have in mint! a definite plan
'or reopening the exchange was dis?
closed yesterday la a ruling of the
committee of Bei that unrestricted tiad
[ lag in municipal and state bonds may
be resumed for domestic account. The
precaution taken against renewal of
the foreign selling that caused havoc
I in the financial centres of this country
as a result of the declarations of war
by the belligerent European powers
was that all transactions for delayed
delivery, or "seller contracts," ?houla
continue to be under the supervision of
the sub-cotninittee on bonds at the
Stock Exchange Clearing House.
This is the first definite step taken
toward a resumption of unrestricted
trading in usted securities since the
July 81, and according
to weil subetentiete?! reports will soon
be followed by a removal of the em?
bargo on listed railroad and industrial
bends. Some of those who have been
urging the necessity of reopening the
? -.?-hange went so far as to predict
yesterday that Monday the door of the
exchange would be thrown open for
trading :n bonds, with further restric?
tions imposed upon possible liquida?
tion from abroad, should steps be taken
in the meanwhile to broaden the Bald
Trade Balance for I'. S.
The belief in financial circles is ?hat
and municipal bonds are not held
i> Y irepe in large amounts, but it was
felt that the exchange authorities
acted wisely in safeguarding this
market frem a resumption of selling
orders from that centre. Bonds owned
abn ad. but held here, may be sold,
but the improvement of financial con?
ditions in this country, as evidenced by
a ranidljf "creasing trade balance
here and the ability of American bank?
ers to meet their foreign obligations
in bills of exchange, it is confidently
believed, will take care of selling
orders from the other side.
The feeling of optimism aroused by
the committee of five's ruling wa
further enhanced yesterday by Othei
developments of S decidedly encour
aging Bature. among these were the
announcement that unrestricted trad?
? ng would be re-umed on the New York

night a?o- Later $9,500 was bid for

thai ?he reopening of the Cotton Fx?
change would be a big factor in re?
lieving foreign exchange con.plications.
The real investment demand for
high grade bonds which has been ap
parent during the last fortnight a
also a determining factor in the Com?
mittee of Five's decision. The head Of
'one of the most prominent o' Well
Street's Inveetment houses stated yes?
terday that high grade Issuei eyre to?
day from J to 5 points higher than the

since the closing o? the Stock Exchange.

accident. The title of Duke of Bruns? irk. heredit?r? in the Guelph family,
was assumed b> the Duke of Cumberland's ?.ounger son, Prince Krnest Au?
gustus, on the occasion of the latter* marriage last >ear to Princess \ ic
toria l.uise, only daughter of the German Emperor. Grief oier the loss of
his elder son has undoubtedly been a contributory cause of the duke's
maladi. It is understood, too, that the duke made a deathbed promise to
his father neier to be reconciled with the House of Hohenzollern unless the
reigning head of that family consented to his resumption of the title and
dignitj of King of Hanover. The duke is a descendant in the direct male
line of King l,e?irge III, whose mental affliction is a matter of history.
SAY GERMANS LOST
TWO MORE SUBMARINES
British Naval Men Believe One Was Blown Up in
Channel and the Other Was Trapped,
Shelled and Sunk.
[By Cable to The Tribune.]
London. Nov. 13.?"The .Standard" publishes an interesting report,
which the Press Burean permits, that two of the enemy's submarines
recently have been lost. There has been no official announcement of
either. "The Standard's*1 report follows:
"There is every reason to believe that two submarines which had
heen raiding in the Channel ha\e been ?satisfactorily accounted for. ac?
cording to information from credible nava! sources. Une of these sub?
marines had been carrying out a series of daring reconnoissunces in th-*
vicinity of Dover, and a patrolling cruiser reported attempts by this
Gorman cralt to torpedo her.
"Patrol flotillas from Dover searched for this submarine, and naval
men had reason to believe that the vessel WSI saving her power by remain
? i tig on the sea be?! for long periods. A very keen watch was kept and due
preparation.? were made.
"Doling one of the very calm day? for which the end of October
was notable bubbles were seen rising at a certain point. Vessels went out
and dredge?] ?ncr this area in a similar manner to mine .sweeping, but
using a powerful chain with explosives attached. This was dragged at
a depth that would catch a submarina if she were lying there.
"After patrolling several tunes over the area there was a heavy
explosion, followed shortly i.y large quantities of oil rising to the sur?
face. Those who took part in the operations ha\e no doubt that an
enemy's submarine was blown up.
"The second ?ase concerned a German submarine that had been
particularly troublesome to ships of the Dover flotilla that had been

G. B. SHAW SEES WORLD
PEACE GROW FROM WAR
?By Cable to The Tribune.|
London, Nov. 11.---George Bernard ?Shaw, under the title "Common
Sense About the War." discusses the position in Europe which led up to
the war, the position at present and the position which democrats should
strive to bring about. While stating a powerful ea?.e for the war, h?:
begins characteristically by brushing aside the case u? stated by every?
body ehe. Whiie attacking the Prussians, he contends that they were
not the only people it; Europe- guilty of warlike passions in the years
preceding till war.
"When German tin eater-," he says, "drank to the day of Arma?
