CLOSED PORTS POINT TO BIG SEA BATTLE Britain Stops All Shipping Between United King? dom and Holland. Loi ?ion. April 'JTi. Impending opera? tions m the North Sea arc thought to be foreshadowed by the incursion of British submarines into Helgoland Bay and an embargo on all shipping? be? tween England and Holland, vhichwas declared by the British government to- ' day. During the last week the activity of the German submarines has decreased to a marked degrfe. and, coincidental- ?. ly, British submarines, of which noth- \ ing had been heard for months, have put in an appearance, and are appar? ently operating along the German coast i and around Helgoland. The <?<rman Admiralty's repor;, announcing these operations, says that one of the Brit iah underwriter craft was sunk on Apr, I 17. The fact that Great Britain has al reniiy sent more than 750,000 men across the Channel to France, a? an? nounced yesterday, may indicate a tempor?r?/ eesaatio?i of the transpon of troops to the Continent, with a con sequent release of some of the war ships that have been guarding the lune. Whatever the intent,on of the, government, the British people are convinced that important naval events are likely to occur within a compara? tively brief period. The othcial statement of the British government, made public first in Am? sterdam to-day, rays: "All shipping between Holland and the United Kingdom is stopped lor the time being. No ships will leave the United Kingdom for Holland after to? day. Ships from Holland will not be admitted to the I'nited Kingdom after to-day. "It is hoped shortly to resume limited cargo and passenger traffic. Special arrangements have been made for the transfer of mail?." Washington, April 22. Consul Gen? eral Skinner at London crible.1 to day tnat the British Admiralty had given notice that certain port? <>f G rea I Brit am may be closed to shipping without notice, "("losing will be indicated," the message said, "by three vertical red lights at night and three red baljs by da/. When these signals are dis played \easels must proceed to exam? ination anchorage or keep to sea." Berlin. April 22. The German Ad m,rally todav announced that in Hel? goland Bay (on the North Sea. between ?he island of Helgoland and the mam ?and, one of the most important Ger? man naval stations) British subma? rines have been repeatedly observed re? cently, an?! attacked by German forces. ? One Hostile submarine was sent to the' bottom April 17, and the destruction of other such vessels is considered prob? able, the communication asserted. Even Money Peace This Year.

EARLE AND GIRL, FEARING MANN ACT, MOVE ON Irate Allenhurst Rules That Affinity Home May Hurt Real Estate. SOON TO WED LATEST LOVE, ARTIST SAYS "My Serious Work Is Ignored," He Complains, While Hur? riedly Packing Chattels. 'f'r-m a S'ilT I'lrrMpen.l.nt nt Tha Trltmn? 1 Allenhurst. N. .1., April 22. To head off prosecution under the Mann white slave act, which his neighbors here were arranging to invoke against him and his mo'i recent soul mate, Ferdi? nand Pinney Karle, th<? art i ?t, who put a new meaning into the word affinity, is preparing to shake the dust of this town from his feet As soon as the packing which en gaired 1rs attention to-day is flushed he will move his goods and those of the latest soul mate. Miss Charlotte Her? man, from the Ocean Avenue estate of his brother, Victor M. Karle, to a cot? tage at Seabnght, the property of his mother, Mrs. Lily .1. Karle. There, as soon as the divorce granted wife No. 3 in Nyack last winter is made perma? nent, he hopes to wed Miss Herman in time to have their second child born m wedlock. Karle has no idea when the wedding can take place, because his Knglish wife, the lates, to divorce him, has given no indication of Intention to move that the interlocutory decree be ma,!" absolute. "ntil that is done Karle, to UM his own words, will_ "re mam like Mahomet's coffm, suspended betwixt earth and heaven." The decision of Karle to move fol? lowed a notice to him that the powers that be in this summer town were con si lern.g ways and means of forcing him to depart. They wished to do it quietly, if possible, but were prepared to go to extremes if necessary. When the artist showed no inclination to ac? cept the hints be?toved jpon him, the townsfolk began the collection of evi? dence. This work was suddenly stopped v hen a local real estatet agent ?vas notified by Victor L'arle to find a tenant for the Ocean Avenue place. 'lilis was tauen to mean that Allen? hurst would escape the scandal and notoriety the real estate interests feared would injure the place through Ferdinand's continued residence here. To Wed Soon, Says Earle. Falle was packing when a reporter called at the house this noon, and was a very different Karle from the one who emerged ??no the limelight in 1907, when he sent his first wife, Mrs. Kish bacher-Karle, back to her parents in Pans and announced that he had found in Miss Julia Kuttner his real affinity. The George Bernard Shaw whiskers v ere gone and he was many pounds 1 heavier and more youthful looking. Earle is now almost forty, but, though he apologized for being unshaven, he look.,I nearer thirty. "Ves," he said, "we are going away. | We air going to Seabright." Karle would not discuss his relations with his neighbors or the townfolk I generally, but he was positive in de? claring his intention of marrying Miss Herman. "When?" was asked. "I wish 1 knew," hi? replied. "Just I as soon as that decree is made abso l lute and I can marry without com 1 mitting bigamy. It won't make any difference to us personally, but I sup | pose it is a concession we must make to society. Then I suppose folks will let us alone and in time be willing to forget me as 'the affinity man' and take me for whatever value I have as an artist. "My serious work is ignored: only the frivolous things, the unpleasant things, are noticed. Some day I hope that will change." Karle and Misa Herman have been ignored socially ?mce they came here arith their baby early in the year. At fir?t they were known as Mr. und Mr*. Kllioit, and posed ns German refugees. When their identity became known the local residents decided to allow them to keep by themselves, and neither forced their attention nor hospitality upon anybody. Karle, mounted on a peculiar typ* of bicycle, was a prominent figure in the Streets, and nude friends with manv of the men, bu' Mi?s Herman was lef' severely alone by everybody.

Vtam ? ?'tir Cssgrsspa ittaM ?I Tlsi TW Syracuse, N. Y.. April 22. What was considered, by those who heard it, one of the most remarkable documents in the political history of the state, Bf?? read to the court here to-day by Will? iam M. Ivins, counsel for William Barnes in his. suit against Colonel Roosevelt. This letter, which was from Lemuel Ely Quigg in September. 189H, then chairman of the New York County Republican Committee, and one of Son? 1 ator Platt'? first lieutenants, followed u report Quigg had ma?le to Senator Platt after a visit to Colonel Roose then at (amp Wyckoff, Long Island. Quigg had suggested to the Colonel , that he be a candidate for Governor. In his letter Mr. Quigg give? the ideas of Senator Platt as well as his own as to the loyalty a Governor should show to his party organization. Quigg Posts Roosevelt Quigg's ! tter to Roosevelt was dated September 10, ItuS, and read: "The Senator thinks that you should come to New York on Wednesday or Thursday of next sveek.

Gol , ernor Black to withdraw. He does not ? mean tha? he will offer him any term?, but simply 1 hat.he will try to convine? him that in justice to himself, not less than the Republican party, he should get out of the way. A!! these -'tones that you may have read about attempt? ed dickers with Black by which a? the price of in? withdrawal he is to be Bent to the Senate are falsehoods. No other consideration has been at any time .suggested to him than he is not the man for this particular occasion. "I have no faith in the Senator's fur ! ther appeals. Indeed, I think that he ! humiliates himself by any other course , than taking Black at his word and call : ing the roll of the convention; but he j says that if is only just to the party 'Merest arid to you as the candidat?- to make u Anal effort to get a harmonious and united nomination. "He thinks if will make no differ? ence in the vote. I don't, but he is more experienced than I.? The truth is that everything has already been done that human ingenuity can suggest to convince Governor Black of the folly of his insisting upon remaining a can? didate, but he w-'ll not listen to any? body.

COUNTERFEITED U. S. NOTES ON TOWELS ' S. TH' . ? tla-fl'l." Washington, .April 22. A group of Secr.-t Service men in the Treasury De? partment this afternoon clustered around two of the biggest specimens of counterfeiting ever brought to the attention of the service. The counter? feits were Turkish towel?, four feet long by two feet wide, an?l were re? markably accurate copies of five-dollar silver eortifieates, with the Indian hesd, i and the ten-dollar gold certificate. The weaving reproduced everj I of the genuine not?-. Only one imall omission was detected by A - Chief W. F. Moran of the Secret Serv? ice, to whom the notes were sent by Director Joseph ?.. Ralph of the Bu? reau of Kngraving. The towels wore given to an em? ploye of the bureau, an?! the Secret Service men to-day began a ?earch for the manufacturer, to stop I of more ??? ? "Inder the law, we do not have to ahow that the making of a facsim le of ,-oins or notes you'd be 'armful." explained chief Moran. "Our law merely provnie? tiiat such imitationa | must. n?)t he made. I think these tow? els were woven sbroad." except for the most ?eiiou* party rea? son-, would be foolish leadership and that he is not prepared to assume such a responsibility. Black Determined to Slick. "These views have been faithfully re? ported to the Governor, but his invari? able answer i? that he will remain a candidate to the end; that he is en? titled to the nomination: tha*. he has earned it by good administration; that ' Platt is prejudiced against it: that there is no real public sentiment in roar favor and that all this hullaballoo : has been raised by <?dell and me; that WO are hi? personal enemies and are acting from interested motives: that , you are not tit to be nominated, any? how, because you are impulsive an?l , erratic; that your military record, how? ever it ?nay attest your personal brav ' ery, displays your characteristic ra?h ne?s and impetuosity and foolhardiness and that as Governor you would play the ?le?, il with the organization and get th<> party into all sorts of tangles and ridiculous position?-. "To all this the reply baa been that your nomination is not a matter of? choice in the absence of substantial reasons against you; that the reasons I do not exist except in the imagination of the Governor and his friends; that 1 you have always been a sturdy, thor? oughgoing Republican, and that, while you have not identified yourself with the machine, you have never done any? thing to its ?n.iury; that you have promised to act In all important mat? ters after full consultation and in view of the interests of the Organisa tion as such as well as the paity v.r.d public interest. "The Senator has informed Black again and again that he has no per? sonal feeling against him and would feel himself constrained to support 'him were it not for the obvious condi? tion of public sentiment. He ha-- said that he would prevent your nomination if he eoul'l see any fa?r reason t?) believe that your administration \ould be injurious to the organization, but that, believing that the people want you, and believing, aWo, that you will act fairly and intelligently and with a friendly res-ard for the organi-.At'on a? it exist?, he would be false to his duty if he did not see to it that tl.c public will was carried out. Organization Behind Platt. "And so the thing has gone on day after day since my visit to Camp Wyckoif. The organization leaders throughout the state perceiving than the sentiment at 49 Broadway was fa? vorable to you, they have acted ac? cordingly. Instead of an effort to re? strain the public sentiment, it has been cultivated ami developed, and with the final result that the Senator is con? vinced that it will be scarcely possible for Black to obtain more than li">0 M.tes out of i>71. He has personally seen one or more representatives of every delegation. He has never utured a syllable against the Governor, but laaed the mattor from the point of view of a successful cam? paign. The cordiality with which he ha. been sustained by the organization leaders is some'hing wonderful to ob? serve. From everybody except the state officeholders has come the assurance that h?' will be supported in whatever position he takes. The invariable an? swer that he receives when he aski how a delegation will stand is sub? stantially this: " "We are organization men and we ta ill support you as the leader of the organisation.

TLLLS OF HIS TAXES Colonel Keeps His Temper, but Resents Hints of Casuistry and EmpiricKm. ftat* ? ?'?it < ?-rasp ? '*? ? ' Rag MSssm ) Syracuse, April 22. Hugely pleated with the result of his day's examina? tion In the $?-.0711.1 libel suit brought against him by William Barne.?, Theo? dore Roosevelt stepped devra from the witness stand to-day. He had appeare?! to enjoy almost every minu'e of it, and bet raved nc qualms regarding Its con? tinuation to-morrow. The Colonel had rea?on to ha pleased. More than once he had thrown off all restraint, and spoken his mind in vigorous fashion to the Jury. With the smile of a cat pnvuhcrant with canaries, he had heard letters read which showed h m juggling with such political prestidigitators, as Senator Platt, Benjamin H. Odell an?l Lemuel K. Quigg. And the court smiled wl'h him. Two points in the persistent, purposeful examination which William .M. Ivins thrust at the Colonel for three hours and fifty-rive minutes got under his skin that he was a casuist in regard to his own powers of choos? ing between right and wrong and an empiricist when criticising the samo function In ancher, and that his memory was fallible. "I attaek iniquity and wrongdoing,*? asserted the Colonel with swelling chest, "but I try to choose the time for the attack when I can get the bulk of the people to support me. You can only accomplish permanent reforms when you can educate the people up to tho point of standing by you." Stands for Righteousness. "You stand for rightcou?ness?" In? terjected Mr. Ivir.s, benevolently. ''I do" with a glistening smile ? "and I believe emphatically you must) have a due regard for opportuneness as to the time and metho?l of attacking iniquity, but for righteousness you must stand, regardless of supp.srt, juit as I did as Governor." Mr. Ivms's ne\t question cut in sharply "Does that apply to Mr. Barnes as well as to you?" *-It does" just as inci?iv??lj-. "Did it In 1912? Has not every man an equal right, with you to determine what time best suits him to attack evil ?" "He has if he has the root of right? eousness in him. If he Is a wrongdoer he hasn't." "Who's the judge?" Colonel Roosevelt almost leaped from his chair. Clenching bis fists he brought them down on his knees. Thrusting his flushed face forward, he shouted: "It may be that I have to bo the judge." Mi. Ivins, who had been sitting quietly, one har.d cupping his chin, jumped up and raised a protesting hand. "It's a responsive answer," reminded the Colonel's counsel "I don't object to h;? an?wer," re? plied Mr. Ivins; "I object to his man? ner." "Ill say this to the Jury" an? nounced the Colonel.
