2-i,000-ton White Star liner Adriatic
I with a $7,000,000 cargo and 336 i.as-'
' senders, a flotilla of nine British mer-!
ckantmen with munitions of war slip- j
ped out to sea tonight. The vessel.? I
j lud remained at anchor all afternoon j
, within the three-mile limit off Sandy |
| As soon as darkness shut out the j
shore line the propellers or tne Auri-;
atic commenced to turn and she crept j
away on her voyage to Liverpool, the
richest prize on the seven seas today.
A squadron of British cruisers summoned
by wireless from the West Indies,
Bermuda, Bahamas and Hal_
j ifax, by Admiral Montagu Browing, j
} met her. They will act as an escort
i for the big liner and the eight freightj
ers that followed in her wake tnrough
i the danger zone in which Admiral
? Browning thinks the U-53 and her
companions may still 'be waiting.
The''.Adriatic left her pier at 12:3o
p. m. just half an hour later than herj
advertised sailing time. She passed the j
! Batterv a little after 1 o'clock and i
steamed slowly down the bay through I
the narrows to anchor at Sandy Hook J
until nightfall. When she passed the j
Narrows the Cunard steamer Pamonia,
which has been waiting since Sundav
with her cargo of explosives in Gravesend
bay, left her- anchorage and followed
astern of the big liner.
Later in the afternoon the British
steamers Eastgate, Dipton, Toftwood
! and Strathstay, all under charter to
! the French line and loaded to capacity
with war munitions, left their anchorages
and joined the Adriatic -and Panonia
off the Hook. The last two of
the flotilla, the freighter Ardgorrock
and the Atlantic transport steamer
I Minehaha, with 1,400 tons of muni- j
| tions on board, passed through the 1
narrows at 5 o'clock.
The reasons for tlie movement of so
many munition carriers at one time are
said to be the availability at this time
of the cruiser squadron as an escort,
and the superstition that so many skippers
have about sailing on a Friday,
Tomorrow being Friday, the 13th, ii
-was realized that unless the vessels got
away tonight another whole day might |
be wasted and Saturday might not
prove so favorable. Furthermore, the
Cedric and Bovic, two other big British
freighters, are due to reach port
tomorrow and the presence of the allied
cruisers would enhance their
chances for a safe arrival.
United States battleship Nevada and
several torpedo boat, desroyers have
been Bigbted off the coast and their
presence was attributed to the known
arHvai nt the British and French
Cruisers and the determination of'
President Wilson that there shall be no
violation of American neutrality*
Before the Adriatic left her pier
Capt. J. B. Ransom ordered all the
liefboats uncovered and supplied witr
| provision* and water. The falls were
loosened and pulleys inspected. Wbilt
at. anchor off the Hook the lifeboats
were swung outward in readiness for
immediate use. Life belts were served
to the passengers, most of whom seem
to have been told that the British
cruisers would guard them from submarine
Of the 38 first cabin passengers,
four are Americans?H. A. Emerson, a
New York commission merchant; R. G-.
? * 1 i
Brassington, who is in tne saie Business
in this city; William J. Wilson
and his wife, who are going to join
the London Hippodrome forces. There
were several Americans among the 19S
second cabin passengers but their
names were not available, owing to the
holiday. In the third cabin were 117
passengers, mostly Canadians and no
| known American citizens were amons?
The departure of the Adriatic recall- J
| ed to the minds of most of the passen-j
gers and their friends on the pier j
the sailing of the Lusitania in the |
face of a warning not nearly as em- j
phatic as that given by the activities!
of the IJ-53 last Sunday.
Goodbyes were said solemnly ana even*
one seemed subdued. Even personal
friends of Captain Ranson wen*,
on board to shake him toy the hand.!
The (Adriatic's 15,300 tons of freight
consisted chiefly of foodstuffs and mu-!
nitions of war of every description,
excepting explosives. Lashed to her

pounds. Aeroplanes and their parts
also were shipped as deck cargo.
As the liner moved awav from her
pier and hacked into the North river
she ftas greeted by cheers from the
1 eople along the waterfront and by
the whistles of all craft in the harbor.
The waistling accompanied her all the
way to the Narrows.
Trp Adriatic has a^speed of'nine
teen knots and is the largest and fast- i
est vessel now in the merchant service.
Captain Ranson said:

. Ernest Moore decided against the ort

, and made pivotal "the act of ill-shaped
