SAYS VICE-PRESIDENT OF LINE P. A. S. Franklin, vice-president and preneral manager of the In ternational Mm cant i!- Marine, owner of the White Star liner Arabic, denied last night the insinuation that the torpedoed vessel was under convoy of British torpedo boats. It was stated at the White Star oftices in this city that such a report must have emanated from Ger man sources in Washington and could have no other purpose than to becloud the issue. "Mr. Franklin," said David Lindsay, spokesman for the officials of the line here, "denies that the Arabic was under convoy when attacked by the Cierman submarine which sent her to the bottom. There is absolutely no truth in such a report. Mr. F'ranklin would have been advised by the British Government or the home office of the line if the Arabic had left Liverpool with a warship convoy." It was further explained in this connection that yesterday morn ing's reports from Washington contained the suggestion that the Arabic was sunk because she tried to get away from the submarine. This was contradicted by Capt. Finch anil all the survivors who were interviewed in Queenstown. Then came the report that the liner was convoyed by two British torpedo boats. "It was simply an attempt to becloud the issue," said Mr. Lind say. "Undoubtedly the insinuation that the Arabic was under convoy ami therefore open to attack by a submarine originated in German circles in Washington." From 6:45 A. M. to 7 P. M.. London time, yesterday the British censor held up all news about the sinking of the Arabic. Despatches to American newspaper? were barred until 1 o'clock this morning, London time.
