" While a final deciaion has not been reached, indications af ter to-day's Cabinet meeting were that the ninety-one German merchant vessels taken over by the United States authorities would be regarded as the prop erty of the American Govern ment and paid for after the wtr. A final decision as to the dis position of the ships probably will be made within a few days. A brief statement issued by the Treasury Department said they were being taken in charge for the purpose of protecting them. Officials said "an intelligent use" would be made of the ves sels and that they cither could be used as naval auxiliaries or as merchant ships. Most of them would make excellent troop transports. Fourteen of the larg est and swiftest could carry 40, 000 troops. U.S. MARSHALS ; GET 65 ALIENS; They Act on Wilsons Order j Against Those Thought Dangerous.
