Submarine Attack? on British

Topic of Discussion.
(By AaMcuted Prto )
LONDON, Feb. 1.-Special orders
issued by the police early tonight
caused blinds to be whisked down all
over London, and repprts spread that
Ave Zeppelin dirigible balloons, sight
ed over Dover and presumably mak
ing inland, had been fired on by the
Parut of the city of London waited
for more than two hours with blinds
drawn, but nothing happened. In
quiries elicited from the police that
orders to prepare for an air raid had
been issued by the war office, but
wheher because aircraft really had
been sighted or as a rehearsal it
was impossible to ascertain.
One message from Dover reported
that the raiders had been driven off,
but no details were forthcoming..
This flurry broke the monotony of
news from battle fronts, where none
of tho armies, either in the east or Ute
west haB delivered a blow sufficient
to cause any shift in their alignment.
German submarine attacks on
British merchant ships continue the
paramount topic of discussion, and
predictions are made that food prices,
already soaring, will go still higher if
more raids are accomplished. West
coast shipping tonight temporary
abandonment of all sailings for Bel
fast, Liverpool and Glasgow. One
other Dublin company' als? hs? sus
pended Railings, but other schedules
are being maintained.
The chief solace Great Britain
finds in the German submarine at
tacks Ja that the craft thus used can
not take 'pfirt in regular navel opera
Out of the confused fighting in the
Carpathians, which continues to domi
nate the military situation, comes
nothing in the way of the decisive
conflict and perhaps; the most signi
ficant news from the east is the re
port from Petrograd that Field Mar
shal von Hldeoburg is planning anoth
er general onslaught on the Russian
lines west of Warsaw.
Artillery duels almost exclusively
have been the measuro of the recent
fighting in France and Belgium. The
German official statement dismisses
the western theatre with , the terse
announcement "nothing to report."
The French record only one infantry
attack, southeast of Ypres, where they
say they stopped a German attempt
The British parliament will reas
semble tomorrow ' to consider war
time questions. Although no conten
tious legislation will be debated, the
labor party will press for government
action with reference to the increase
in the prico of food, alien enemy re
strictions probably again will be
threshed out, and there is likely to be
a further request.for more, informa
tion on the recruiting situation.
London newspapers' are pointing
out the growing unrest in labor cir
cles and there is a belief in some
quarters that this may necessitate ac- j
tion by the government. Fifty thous
and mine?5 in West Yorkshire, whose
agreement with their employers ex
pires in a fortnight, are- demanding
wage increases 'on a threat to strike.
The Welsh miners are deniandlnjr tn?
creased pay and -better working con
ditions, while the railway men con
tend that their wages are hot tn keep
ing with the increased cost of living.
The first thing to be dealt with by
parliament, however, will be finance.
