Maxfield, and H. T. Hovt and thirteen of their comrades- victims of the ZR-2 disaster arriv ed home today on the British cruiser Dauntless. It was a far different home com ing that the victims had anticipated when they sailed several months ago tor England to prepare and bring pacK tne monster dirigible, the dis aster to which on a trial flight, sent it heroes, men of two nations, to an untimely death. Greeted By Air Escort Far out at sea the" Dauntless was met by a destroyer division of the United States Navy. As it neared the port the escort was met by a fleet of seaplanes representing the arm of the service for which the victims gave their lives. As the fenerali snip came up the harbor the forts lllnrlISf4i).f.aLlhu,riihJjpJlU..toll. The Dauntless proceeded directly to the Brooklyn navy yard where the British sailors tenderly carried the bodies from hte deck of their craft and delivered them to the keeping of their former comrades in arms on the pier. Tonight the flag draped cas kets were under the watchful eyes of a guard of honor in the yard chap el where tomorrow they will be ren dered the honor that the navy pays to its heroic dead. Slept Under a Shrouded Gun The fifteen caskets, each draped in. an American nag, were cameo, on what is known as the after super structure deck of the Dauntless. A monster gun, its muzzle shrouded in funeral colors, stretched over the bo dies arranged in three rows on the warcraft's deck. At each corner of the deck, as the vessel was draped into its pier, stood an armed sentry with head bowed and arms reversed. Forward of the plutform was a non-aommissioned officer, and aft an officer in full dress uniform having a rank equal to that of Commander Maxfield. Both of Ihese officers stood at attention with head uncovered until the caskets ft-cre finally removed from the ship. On the deck of the cruiser the en lire crew of 400 men, with exception of those on duty, were drawn up at attention. On the quarter deck was a guard of the Royal Marine Light Infantry standing rigid with revers ed arms. Funeral Silence Prevailed A silence almost sepulchral in ef fect hung over the funeral ship as she proceeded up the harbor. Ex cept for the barking of her guns as they spoke 21 .times in the usual sa lute of courtesy given by war craft entering a foreign port the only noise was the swish of water at her bow the occasional clanking of a chain or a command given in muf fled tones. Public memorial services will be held at the navy yard at 2 o'clock to morrow afternoon. The body of one of the victims, J. T. Hancock, of Michigan, was delivered to his father and buried in England, and the body of another brought home today, Commander Emory Coile, will later be buried at sea in accordance with his oft expressed desire.

' ' London, Sept. 16 In a telegram this evening to Premier Lloyd George in Scotland, Eamon DeValera is con sidered, in high quarters in London, to have indicated a desire for contin uation of the negotiations looking to peace in Ireland which were termi nated momentarily, at least by Mr. DeValera 's communication of earlier in the week insisting on the inde pendence of Ireland and Mr. Lloyd George's cancellation of the confer ence with delegates of the Sinn Fein which he had proposed for next Tues day. The telegram of Mr. DeValera was as follows: "I received your telegram last night and am surprised that you do not see that if we, on our side, accept a conference on the basis of your letter of September 7 without making our proposition quite clear. Ire.UnH'a irreparably prejudiced. If the posi tions were not so definitely Opposed there would, indeed, be no problem to be discussed. It should be obvious that in a case like ours if there is to be any result the negotiations must meet without prejudice and untram meled by any conditions whatever except those imposed by the facts as they know them. Up to a late hour tonight Mr. Lloyd George had made no response, but the concensus of opinion was that since neither side to the argument seemingly is desirous of a rupture in the negotiations there doubtless would be a further exchange of mes sages. The genera lview in London is that the hitch has arisen because both Mr. Lloyd George and Mr DeValera are compelled to keep an eye on the ex tremists in their respective cabinets but that behind both there is also strong public opinino in favor of peace, this feeling being as strong in England as in Ireland. strengthen the natural bonds of friendship between the two nations. They also thought that it was desir able the king should go as his own ambassador and express Denmark's gratitude toward America for her valuable aid in getting back Danish Slesvig from Germany.
