Orcat Britain Is making a des-1 pcrato effort to lako the Conference out of the meshes of private conver sation and secret -debates and force the discussion Into the open in tho hope of lining up tho moral forces of tho world behind her demand that the submarine bo abolished.

Tho question of whether tho Brit- luon or wneuior u. lsh did or did not break faith hinges innrnlv unon whether Lord Ridden is an official representative of Qreat Britain at thlB conference or simply a private cltiron engaged In news- paper work.

In any event, what Lord Itiddoll has said In his conferences with news- paper men twice a day has been tele- graphed to all parts of tho United Qtnf hv thn nrnss association And cabled to the four corners of tho world. Ho has been the most com- munlcaUvo man at the Washington Conference, a Bource of information on everything. Now Lord Blddell, in response to ) the French attack on him and tho British for "leaking" about tho French proposals, has declared that ho never was In any senso an official but that he camo here solely as the representa tive of tho British Newspaper Pro prietors Association and that his pri mary purpose was to assist BrlUsh Journalists ln getting nows from tho British delegation. While performing this task ho was quite willing, indeed anxious, to have American correspondents attend and tako whatever news ho was giving out He didn't say ho was an official spokesman. Nevertheless It Is a fact that Lord Riddcll did the same kind of thing at tho Versailles Confer ence and4 has presented the British viewpoint after the meetings of tho Supremo Council In Paris. He Is an Intimate friend of Prime Minister Lloyd George and Is said to have been making private reports by cablo to tho Prime Minister, acpaorto and dis tinct from tho reports sent by Mr. Balfour and tho officials 0f tho British delegation.

CUT E (Continued From First Page) now under operation tho maximum rush hour movomont Is only 1,069 cars or le3 than thirty-six cars per hour per line. Mr. Turner proposes under his plan to operato oars under a twenty-secend 'icadway in the rush hours, wlilcl' would permit tho pas sago of 180 cars per hour over :t sln Ble track. Tho capacity of these cars could bo doubled by the operation of t.-alicrs. By giving the police power to en force a rule giving the car tracks ex clusively to street cars in the rush hours, tho average Jturface car speed could bo made ten miles an hour, according to Mr. Turner, Plenty of cars run at this speed would, ho fig ures, attract an Immense tralllc and relieve the pressure on the Kapld Transit, lines, on which patronage Is Increasing at the rate of about 4,000 passengers a day. Mr. Turner's plan Includes all inter- borough linos which would Carry pas- scngcrs not only across the Brooklyn, wniim.h, nn.i "'""""""" " , . , Quecnsboro Bridges, hut into the hearts of the boroughs connected by theso bridges. The only crosst.im lln03 ln Manha"an under 1C Turncr nlan would be Grand Street. Eighth Street, 14th Streot. 34th Street, 42d Street, 59th Street, 125th Street and all lines now ln operation above 125th Street The plan would replaco surface car lmca on thc lower weat 8de by bU3 lines where thoy are needed. Bus lines could also bo established as feeders In other parts of tho borough. The plan would be based on a single faro with transfers. Mr. Turner points out that there are 180 cross slreots on tho east side and 260 cross streets on tho west side of Manhattan. Only eleven avenues traverse Manhattan north and south to feed all theso cross streets. Tho proBpcct of opening new avenues Is remote because of prohibitive cost. Preceding the receipt of Mr. Tur ner'.", plan, Clarence J. Shearn, spe cial counsel to thc commission, read into tbo record a lotter received from Comptroller Craig In which he refused to appear before thc commission and givo his v.ows on tha proposed plans for transit Improvement, Despite tne attitudo of tho prin cipal city officials, ' said Mr. Shearn, "who are making th9 whole transit problem a political issuo in tho faco of tho growing discomfort of pas sengers, high finance wreckage, rot ten service, broken down equipment and dirty cars, tho Trauslt Commis sion will proceed to put Into effect the relief plans needed by tho city." Chairman McAncny added that In asmuch as Information on city fin ances concerning the traction situa tion, -such as is wanted from tho Comptroller, Is a public record, tho Comptroller will be sent for when ho Is wanted. This means that when thc commission get ready to hear Mr. Craig ho will be subpoenaed. Tho Comptroller ln his letter com plained about not receiving any ac knowledgment of a letter he wrote to tho commission on Oct. 20. Chair man McAncny said the postmark shows that the Comptroller's letter of Oct. 20 was not mailed until Nov. 18 and the records of tho commission show that a reply was sent on Nov. 20. Mr, Turncr In explaining his plan said It requires 2,000 car miles dally to carry rush hour traffic and only six car miles dally to carry tho non rush hour traffic. The total operating cost of Man hattan surface lines, Mr. Turner said, is 88 cents per car mile, while the od- eratlng lncomo was 78 cents per car mile, a loss of 10 cents per car mile.
