May 21. Disregard of the warning to take cover seems to be the reason for most of the deaths and in juries. In Sunday night's airplane raid on London. In one place a young man was walking In a roadway when a bomb ex ploded sixty yards away, the fragments striking and killing him. A number of houses close by were damaged, but only one or tne occupants was injured so i riously as to necessitate his removal to a hospital. In another locality four bombs fell a short distance from each other. Two men. one standing In his own doorway, j another on a corner, were killed. Near by three houses of the artisan class were demolished. A family from one house took refuge In a public shelter. A more remarkable Instance or the folly of neglecting to take cover was noted in another district, where eleven persons were killed by one bomb, three chlMrw being among the number, and ten or more persons being injured. All are said to have been loitering in the streets. In the same locality a bomb fell," killing five members of a family. Two other enna of this family are serv ing In the army. The charred and splintered wreckage of one of the raiding machines lies In a field of growing peas and beans on the outskirts of London. The plane was of last year's construction and carried a crew of three. This was the Gotha that fell In flames while thousands looked on. The burning fabric made a glare which even In the moonlight could be seen for miles. Among the visitors who were permit ted a close Inspection of the wreckage. were a half dosen American naval men. One said : 'That Is the first German machine I have seen. It looks good there." Another Gotha was forced down ten miles away. This probably wae hit by our big guns. It measures twenty-six yards from tip to tip of Ha planes. The pilot, the officer In command and a third occupant are men of fine physique. The officer was wearing a pair or patent leather slippers. The third man, a ser geant major who had suffered a broken arm, spoke good English. He paid a high tribute to the wonderful flying and shooting of his conqueror. He seemed pleased to think that he had fallen into British hands, saying: The English are very kind." The close and regular fonnatlon which the raiders tried to preserve In their flight tq London was broken up by the fire from the outer defences of the me tropolis. SWEDES RESCUE TWO.

Special Despatch to The Suv Washington, May 21, Officials of thla Government are mystified over the order Issued to-day by the Netherlands authorities forbidding the departure of their vessels from home water The action Is believed to be due to the seizure of the Dutch steamship Agneta, which was taken Into Swlnemuende harbor yesterday by German warships. A vigorous protest over the order Is ex pected to be filed by the American Gov ernment. Fifty thousand tons of cereals are waiting at American ports for movement to Holland In the event that vessels are furnished to carry them across. Another 50.000 tons await movement at Argen tine ports. Officials of the Dutch Gov ernment were Informed to-day that these cereals cannot be held Indefinitely. Despatches from Amsterdam recently have Indicated -that approximately 400.000 tons of shipping Is lying Idle In the Dutch waters as a result of the U-boat threats made by the Germans. Clearance papers for the sailing of 14,000 tons of Dutch ships from Ameri can waters was granted a few days ago by this Government with the understand- lnc that the vessels would return to this side. Compliance with this agreement will be Insisted upon notwithstanding the order isbued by the Government of Holland. Provisions of the tiew shipping treaty with Norway are already being put Into effect and about 15,000 tons of shipping has cleared In accordance with this treaty. The Hague, May 21, The Dutch Gov ernment ha prohibited the sailing of all Dutch steamships from Dutch port. Sailing vessels and coastal fishing craft arc excvted from the ruling. WINS RIVETING PRIZE.

SWEEPING GRANGES FOR BATTLE PLANES United States Will Build Type to Combat German "Tank" Craft. Sped I Despatch to Tss St. Washington, May 21. Sweeping changes 'In the design and equipment of the American battle planes on the French front are In Immediate prospect as a result of the appearance of heavily armored German machines over the al lied lines and one of which caused the death of Major Raoul Lufbery. Chief among the changes In prospect Is that of providing the American planes, at least the heavier type of planes, with rapid firing guns capable of penetrating from three-quarters to one Inch of steel plate and passing through the steel headpieces and body Jackets which the German aviators are wearing. The Government's aircraft experts are familiar with the type of machine which the Germans have brought Into use and recognize It as modelled after the lightly armored Gotha machines which the French have used for some time. The allied armies have not adopted It gen erally, however, bemuse of Its great weight, decreased speed and restricted flying radius. Similarity of Machines, There Is a similarity also between the German machines and those used by the English filers recently In combating the Hun drive from St. Quentln and through Plcardy. The Englishmen had steel pro tectlom on the bottom of their planes which enabled them to fly low over the German forces, peppering them with ma chine gun bullets and at the same time escanlna- the shrapnel of the German anti-aircraft guns. Frequently the Eng lish filers were underneath the birrage fire and within a few yards ot tne ground. The German idea of armored "tank" planes Is believed here to nave orig inated in tnelr Dllter experiences wnn the English army during the progress of their drive. The American experts have already made experiments with heavy machine', equipped with two and three engines, and of the biplane and triplane types. Success of I.laht, Fast Craft. The success of the Allies In holding control of the air has been attributed to the light, faster flying craft which they have employed, enabling the avia tors to manosuvre In small radius and to hold the advantage against the clumsy, slower moving planes of the Germans. The new "tank" planes are designed by the Oermans. according to the belief here, with the Intention of overcoming that advantage held by the Allies. Experiments have been made by Gov ernment experts with the Liberty motor on six or seven larse tps of machines with a view of coplni? with heavily ar mored planes In the event that they should .be Introduced by the .Germans.

AUSTRIAN DRIVE OH ITALY SEEMS NEAR Army Operations in East Are Halted to Provide Men for Offensive. PACT DISTURBS GERMANY Hertling and Kuhlmann Said to Object to Military Clauses. Washington, May 21. Further evi dence that another great Austrian drive against Italy la Impending came to-day In an official despatch from Switzerland, siylng Information from Vienna showed Austria had planned to suppress all military operations in the east on May 20 to concentrate forces for the Italian front. Austrian newspapers are quoted as saying this step marks the Institution of civil administration again In Bukovlna and In Gallcla, and that similar measures are to be taken In Hungary toward Transylvania. The military importance of the de cision la emphasised because It enables the withdrawal of a considerable mili tary force from Gallcla and Bukovlna. while the Austrian General Staff will be able to turn all its attention to the operations against Italy. Advices reaching here from The Hague say strong opposition has de veloped In German official circle to the recently concluded pact between Ger many and Austria. The opposition Is reported to be led by Chancellor von Hertllna- and Foreign Minister von Kuhlmann. They are quoted aa saying that they washed their hands of the entire matter, objecting to the methods by which the military part of the con vention was conducted by the German higher command. Gen. LudendorfT Is quoted aa demand ing the Immediate aperoval of the agreement.

Evidence Against Sinn Fein Laag ers ts Be Isaac to the Proas. Special Cable Despatch to Tss 8cm from tht London Timet, Copyright, llll; oft rtghtt rennets London. May 21. Such carts of the evidence of complicity between the lead era of the Sinn Fein movement ana ma enemy as can be published are being prepared and will be Issued to the press shortly. The Dublin correspondent of the Timet states that the authenticity of the evidence Is beyond question and that the character of Its source is cer tain to have an Important Influence upon thepolitlcal situation In Ireland. Later Dublin despatches carry the subject even further, authough for the present consisting mainly or lunner details of arrests and speculation as re gards the probable decision of the Na tionalists and catholic bisnnps as re gards their future course. The situa tion apparently Is awaiting eviaence ot the conspiracy with Germany. The Timet prints a Dublin despatch written Sunday which concludes: "Arrests of men prominent in the Sinn Fein and Irish Volunteer movements are reported In Athlone. Cavan. Belfast, Drogheda, Dundalk, Trales, Dingle, Kil kenny, Dashel, Sllgo, Swords, Sklb berreen. Clontel.

Press Awaits Evidence Before Tak ing; Stand on Plot. Dublin. May 21. The Government net Is still spread in hope of arrestlrg pther persons believed to he connected with the alleged German plot. A num ber of suspected persons are helnc searched, some vehicles In the vicinity of tho city are being Ktopped and the occupants are subjected to examination. The press comment on last night's manifesto of protest Issued by the Man sion House antl-conscrlptlon conference Indicates an all around reluctance to take a definite stand in the present situ ation until more la known of the Gov. ernment's evidence regarding the alleged German plot. All parties are marking time, awaiting developments. The Unionists presume that the Gov ernment's evidence must be very strong, while the Nationalist press shows some scepticism as to the reality of a plot. The Sinn Fein has no dally newspaper. Its half dozen little papers, known in Dublin as "the mosquito pres," appear weekly on Thuday, but at the Sinn Fein headquarters there were emphatic denials of the existence of any German plot to-day. The Unionist organ, the Irish Timet, commenting on the Mansion House manifesto, condemns "the scandalous suggestion that a great Irish soldier and an English Minister have conspired to blacken Ireland's character In friendly countrlen." It describes the manifesto as rln effect a ote of confidence In the Sinn Fein, an appeal to the worn prejudice of the most Intolerant Irishman and the repudiation of Ireland's duty In the war. If this Is the best that Nationalist statesmanship can do In Ireland's grav est hour. If this Is Its true meswee to the peoples who are now In death grips with Germany, decent Irishmen of all parties must nans their heads for shame.'" The Mansion Houw manifesto con cluded with the following statement: "While standing steadfast on our good rights, we shall neer cease to appeal to all friends of human free dom or to Inquire for ourselves whether the present attempt to force civil war on the Irish people by a transparently false pretext of military expediency does not really cover a wicked plot of English politicians to relieve themselves from their broken pledge tn Ireland " In addition to Messrs.

Peter E.

"His Eminence desires me to state that this meeting was not held under the auspices ot the Catholic Church and that he did not believe the notices pub lished that the Rev. Peter E. Magen nls would preside. The fact that Father Magennls did act as chairman of ths meeting surprised his Eminence, who has since Informed the father that he will not be permitted to remain In the archdiocese of New York If he attempts to preside at such meetings. "Father Magennls is a member of the Carmelite Order and does 'not belong to the diocesan clergy of New York. His Eminence, however, aa the local Bishop has control of his public activities."

DELL SAYS STORY CAUSED EXPULSION British Journalist Declares He Reported Facts of Tcaco Negotiations. Special Cable Detpatch to Tss Sex. Copyright, 1311; all riahtt reterved. London, May 21. Robert Dell, Paris correspondent of the Manchester Guar dian, who was expelled from France by the French Government, arrived In Lon don last night. Speaking to The Sun correspondent he said : "I have been expelled because I was the only English correspondent able to give hl-i paper Information about the negotiations arising out of the letter from the Austrian Emperor to Prince Slxtus. The Manchester Gunnlxan Is the only English paper that has glve-i the public tho facts of the matter, which Is of first Importance, and has been dea.t with fully by the SuU3, Italian and German press. "I was notified SsturdRy morning that I must leave Paris that evening for England. When I protested I told by the Police Commissionaire of Special Foreign Service that the limruc'.iorjs for my departure had been Issued by the Ministry of War The dtcree fur my expulsion was dated Wednesday. The reason for this, I believe, Is that two Influential persons who would have pro tested against my expulsion left Paris Friday. "One friend, a Deputy, telephoned the Ministry of the Interior to protest, and was Informed that the reason for my expulsion fcs the publication of my ar tides relatln; to the Austrian peace pro posals.

"The polkc Impressed upon me that mine was not a cae of expulsion recom mended by the police to the .Minister of the Interior, but was a purely political expulsion on the initiative of the Pre mier, decided upon at the Cabinet Coun cil.

GUFFEY TO OPPOSE HJM Returns From Primary In dicate the House Will Be Dry. PHtLADiLFHtA, May 21. State Sena tor William C. Sproul of Chester was nominated for Governor to-day on the Republican ticket In the Statewide pri mary election. His nearest opponent was J. Denny O'Nell of Pittsburg, State Highway Commissioner. Returns Indi cate that Sproul will have a large plu rality over O'Nell. Both candidates made preelection pledges to support the national prohibition amendment and woman suffrage. Senator Sprout has been a leader in the State Senate for twenty years. In addition he is Identified with many large buslneea enterprises in this and other States, notably the Sun Shipbuilding Company at Chester. Gnffey Opposes Him. Joseph F. Guffey of Pittsburg, also ptedged to prohibition, was named as the Democratic opponent of Sproul. Guffey, with the party machinery of the Democrats at his back, had no trouble defeating Judge Eugene Bonnl well of Philadelphia. The only contest worth the name was that fro Lieutenant-Governor between Congressman John R. K. Scott ot Philadelphia and Edward E. Beldleman of Dauphin county. Scott had the support of the State administration and Beldleman was sponsored by Senator Penrose. The re turns at'rnldnlght Indicate that Beldle man has carried the State by a ma jority of 25,000. That his majority was no larger Is due to the light vote polled In the coun try districts, where the "Penrose follow ers gave him their best efforts. He had to overcome majorities In both Phila delphia and Allegheny counties. House May Be Dry. From returns received up to midnight the Indications are .that the next House of Representatives will be dry. This Is based on the Democratic counties where tho prohibition vote was thrown to the candidates pledged to vote Against liquor on every occasion during the next ses hlnn of the State Legislature. The complexion of ,the Senate cannot he foiccast at this hour. The nomination of Beldleman is a virtual victory for the Penrose faction in the election. Senator Sproul's nom ination had been conceded as aimed a certainty and his friendship with Pen rose will go a long way toward restoring the prestige of the senior Senator, whose ltaderhlp had been challenged and seri ously embarrassed during the last four years. Hledleman's nomination, which carries with It the assurante of election In November, will give the Penrose fac tion a strong hold on the State Senate, where Important legislation. Including prohibition, will be considered.
