M GERMAN WARSHIPS TO LOOK ELSEW.HERE FOR THEIR SUPPLIES Exposure of Distination of Steamships Fram and Sommerstand Cancels Sail ings Captains Tell Their Suspicions. STEFANNSON DAIRY TELLS OF HARDSHIPS AND PERILS IN ARCTIC German warships In South American and West Indian waters which have been coaled and provisioned by vessel out of this port will have to seek othr eourcos for supplies. The dictograph exposuro of tho destinations of the Nor wegian steamships Flam ami Sominei ntad, now at anchor In the Delnwuf -River, has disclosed the system which made the violation of neutrality possi ble. Owners, agents and others are now rushing to cover. The expose was due to the efforts of Christian Moo. Norwegian Consul at this port, and Ralph M. Bullow.i, a Ntw York attorney. It was In Mr. Bullowa's ottlce the dic tograph was Installed, prior to a con ference between tile masters of the ves sels, representatives of tho Hamburg- American Line and otllclals of the liner- , American Company. Mr. Bullown du clares that the Inter-Amer can Coin- pany had chartered the vessels ond then . rechartered them to the Hamburg American Company. This Is denied by I Julius P. Meyer, director of the lutter ' company, who asserts that his company I has chartered vessels at various times I to supply ships of the line, but never i Gorman crulers. i Upon the advice of Mr. Moe, Captain Azelsen, of the Sommerstad, and Cap tain Grlnhelm, of the Fram, consulted Mr. Bullowa, after notifying their own ers, the A. F. KlavernesM & Co., of ' Haugescnd, Norway, and 11. M. Wrangell i & Co., of Chrlstlanla, Norway. CONSUL, GETS SUSPICIOUS. i Consul Moe's suspicion was first aroused j Iiy Captain Axelsen and Captain Grlnhelm. They told him they were to sail under ecated orders and "things didn't look just right." They bald that they were In duty bound to tho steamship owners to carry the cargoes to their destinations, but they did not believe the owners knew anything about the shipment of supplies to Ger man warships. A few days later the captains told Mr. 5too that agents of the Hamburg-American Line had sent them offers of big bonuses for Immediate sailings. This was during the time the masters of the steam ships were awaiting advice from home. The advice camo and told them to con eult an attorney. Then the conference with tho dictograph as a witness was ar ranged. Nothing could be learned of tho trans action at the ofilee of William J. Grand field and Company, 30S Walnut stret, to day. They are the local agents for the steamships. They declined to give tho name or names of the persons for whom they were acting and further refuted to affirm or deny that thoy knew the car Koes were meant foi German cruisers, "ffc will not discuss the transaction In .nyway," was all that was said. The Sommerotad and Fram are two of six vessels with similar cargoes on board cleared from this port by the Grandtleld Company. The first one was the Heina, fhlch left on August 6 ostensibly for La Guayra. It was reported that 'She had been captured In the acts of delivering her cargo to a German warship. The Nepos sailed on August 22, the John Lud wlg Nowlnckel on September 2 nnd the Tlnlta on September S. On their clearance papers their destinations were given as fipanlsh or Brazilian ports. CAItitlED COFFEE FOR BRAZIL. Like "carrying coals to Newcastle" was the carrying of coffee to Brazil by these steamships. Another suspicious incident was the large supply of fresh water taken on board. Those aroused tho Nor wegian skipper's fears. They did not care to risk Imprisonment In English or French prisons, but both emphatically declared they feared most for the prop erty of their employes. Dilticulty was experienced in getting crews for these vessels, despite the fact that hundreds of sailors nre out of employment. Arrangements are now being made for the discharge of the cargoes of tho Fram nnd Sommerstad, and In a few days JSUCQ worth of coal and ship supplies which were scheduled for German war. ahlps will be dumped back on one of tho pier s and later delivered to the um clgnors.

The possibility that Italy will break Its neutrality policy and enter the war on the side of the Allies has been decreased by the apparent eftect of the Greek- Rumantan-Bulgarlan alliance on Turkey's belligerent intentions, say dispatcher, from Rome. Dispatches from Vienna nnd Trieste tell of preparations bv Austria to resist an Italian Invasion. Magyar regiments have been tent Into Trentlno to replace the regiments ?ent to Setvia at the beginning of tho war. Vi spite the firm determination of the government to maintain fetilet neutrality It has been currently believed that any overt act bv Turkey would mean a move bv Italy, wi.lch has held both Its military and naval forces mobilized for six weeks. The pressure of the anti-neutrality fac tion on the povernment has not decrease d. although public demonstrations have been curbed by the soldiers. Despite the official denials by Austria it is iisitivelv known that the Austrian forctis on the Italian frontier are belns strongly reinforced. All of the regiments made up of troops of Italian birth or from the frontier Itself, where Italian sympathy Is trons. have been transferred to Galicia. While there Is no chance In the of flilal Italian attitude, thfre is little doubt an where thut the date for Italy to en ter the war is raridly approaching. This is believed not only bv the rp!eentattves of th- A11I'. but also by the diplomatic leprtsentativas hre of the German and Austilon Governments. Thoy hav used all of their Influence to Ueop Itnly neu tral, but It Is noticeable that thoy have not been seen about tho Foreign OHice leeently. Reports are circulated hero that Russia :s preparing an ultimatum to Turkey de manding demobilisation.

She taught school when old-time school teachers were in fashion. She Is teaching school the same old way today, and she is be loved by a trroup of small girls. Just not to slight Mr. McKenty, it is well to say that before he entered the ministry and put frivolous things be hind him he was a fireman.

Scripps-McRae Publication, Says President Clark, Was Not a Paying Proposition. Two Years Old. The News-Post has suspended. The last Issue appeared Satutday, hut the announcement that the newspaper had ceased publication was withheld until this morning. The News-Post, n mem ber of tho Scrlpps-JIcfluc league of newspapers, was published at Tenth and Hamilton streets, In the heart of the old Tenderloin, with two afternoon editions. The first Issue appeared April 10, 1012. Since then it appeared without Interrup tion until this morning. For n time dur ing tho outbreak of the European war a Sunday edition was published. The radical tone which predominated In tho News-Post made It a source of cutl oslty and wonder to the man In the street. Its publishers denied any connection with any party, but the iapcr generally was regarded as dominated by Socialists. Tho News-Post had an exciting career. At one time the staff was arrested on a charge of criminal libel preferred by Magistrate Thomas W. McFarlnnd, and last May tho publishers were reprimanded by Judge Martin, of tho Common Pleas Couit, for their comment on a damage suit for damages tried before him. The suspension this motnlug was a com plete Mirprlse to those in touch with the newspaper field In Philadelphia. Three months ago the size of the paper was Increased from four to eight pages and a mor ambitious tone pervaded Its ac tivities. There was much wonder ns to "how they kept It going." but uucstlonerh wete told the paper would be continued fo rat least two years longer. The decision to suspend became known here after tho return of II. I!. Clark, the piesldtnt of the company, from Los Angeles last Friday. "Philadelphia iri a good town," said Mr. Clark this morning, "but we didn't put up the paper In the way to make people buy it. This was not u failure. All our bllis are paid. Wo have Just quit, that la nil. When a Scrlpps-Mi-ltno papoi dotsn't pay It Just stops without any fuss. Wo came hero without any preliminary announcement, and wcare going out the same way.

Mysterious calls by mysterious men on property owners In the vicinity of 21st and Race streets, the site for the pro posed .t?,OW),UOO "nuublc hall" grab of the Municipal Court, have taken a new meaning to those who entertained tho men since the plans of McNIchol-Pen-rose forces have been revealed. For months bcfoic It was even whis pered that tho Detention House at 22d and Arch streets, built only six years ago, was to bo abandoned persons who owned property In the path of the grab liavo been asked to tell what thoy would sell for. Sometimes the "asents" have said they represented tho city, but more often they have come from "persons who did not want to figure In the transaction until It was closed." No one knows who these men are.

VAGUE METHODS OF AGENTS. Most of the propei ly owners along Winter street tell tha same story. Thoy have been approached very warily and questioned vaguely as to wnnt they thought about selling and how much they would wnnt for their lots. They knew nothing of the Municipal Court's pluns and those who suspected there was anything peculiar In the visits from ngents put it down to the Parkway con demnations. Some property owners stopped talking very quickly when asked If any ono hnd tried to buy options on their land. Op tions, llko dead man, toll no talcs, It has been pointed out. Records at City Hall are Innocent enough. There Is one exception, how over. It Is known that one of tho properties owned by Mrs. James P.
