TWO BRITISH LINERS
DEFY FOE'S BJLOCKADE;
REACH PORT SAFELY
Adriatic and Zeeland Ar
rive at Liverpool With
out Encountering Lurk
ing German Submarines.
LONDON, Fob. 18.
Tho first night and day of tho "bread
war" have passed without any actlvo ef
fort by Germany to launch her terrific
mine and submarine attack against Eng
lish shipping being reported. At 6 o'clock
this evening the Berlin decree of a. war
zone about Great Britain and along tho
coast of France had been In effect for1
18 hours..
Sea traffic between France and England
throdgh the English Channel has been
malntalnod as usual, according to- reports
Of 'the moVenVenTof 'steamers posted' Here.
Two great British liners, tho Adrlatlo and
Zeeland, arrived safely at Liverpool to
day. Their passengers reported their voy
age had beon without incident, even
across the Irish Sea, where It had been
expected the German submarines might
Btrlko tho first blow.
The only lessening of marine traffic waa
between Holland and England, some of
tho Dutch companies holding up their
boats because of the German warning that
neutral shipping should avoid the war
zone.
Advices from Rotterdam state that not
a single ship of any sort has reached that
port since Wednesday afternoon. Tho
Zulderdyk and the Richard, of tho Holland-America
Line, sailed today for tho
United States nnd two other vessels
steamed for England.
Half a dozen ateam trawlers sailed to
day from Rotterdam for England with
cargoes of fish, nnd 10 Danish steamers
nro reported en route to English porta,
loaded, with foodstuffs.
A meeting of the cabinet was held at
tho home of Premier Asqultli early in the
day, but up to noon no formal proclama
tion In answer to that of Germany had
been issued. This led to reports that no
such proclamation would bo issued, but
that tho British Government, classifying
tha German menace as piracy, would not
recognize Germany's attacks as conducted
under the ruleji'of civilized warfare.
By adopting this ottltudo and holding
the crews of German submarines to be
pirates, it would be possible to hang them
for murder If any are captured. An In
fluential part of the public, led by Admi
ral Lord Charles Bcresford, Is In favor
of this method of procedure.
The rules of International law provide
that tho penalty for piracy, upon convic
tion, may be death. Tho first requirement
to constitute an act of piracy "Jura gentl
urn" Is that it must be an act of, adequate
Violence. It need not necessarly be an
act of depredation. Ihe second require
ment )s that the piratical act must be
committed outside the territorial Juris
diction of anyvcvlllzed State, but a third
holds that the perpetrators of the piratical
act must be without the authority of any
recognized political community.
The third requirement might be over

A SHAMELESS BETRAYAL
(EDITORIAL)
The Fi'iinfiiv? Committee of Councils has bctralied the interests ot the
people of Philadelphia. The ordinance introduced this afternoon is a
delusion, ind a fraud. It dedicates the city in no wise to the Taylor com
prchcnsi.4 plans. Instead, it provides for the infamous Costello plan,
omits provision for the delivcryjoop, which is a vital part of the. program,
and appears to be a bold and deliberate attempt to hand over the city,
shackled and defenceless, to the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company.
The ordinance is filled with red herring. It offers the. people something
they do not want instead of something they do want. It ripst the Taylor
program wide open and contemplates so tyinp up Philadelphia that real
rapid transit will not be possible in the next fifty years. It is an arrogant,
bold and shameless effort to divide ihe city by playing on sectional inter
ests. It is so shot through with infamy that the gas steal is a virtuoiis thuiff
in comparison with it. It reveals what certain Organisation leaders meant
when they said that they would riddle the Taylor plan and bury it in
quick lime.

LENNON ATTACKS COOKE,
CHARGING INACTIVITY
Councilman Says Director Has Failed
to Make Use of Appropriation.
Tha charge that JJ.000,000 appropriated
by Councils for the repair of streets and
roads was lying Idle because of the In
activity of the Department of Public
Works was mado this afternoon In Select
Councils by James H. Lennon, of the 28th
Ward,
Mr. Lennon said that If as much energy
were expended In Cue use of tha pick and
shovel in the repair of steels as In the
use of typewriters In the offices of the
department, the number of unemployed In
Philadelphia today would not be so great,
Throughout the session, Mr, Lennon
took occasion to find fault with Director
Cook and demanded information on each
resolution Intended to benefit his depart
ment. Councilman Lennon said that he
jtad so far been unsuccessful In obtain
ing Information -of any kind on the "sec
ond floor." Declaring that the 12,000,000
available for tha repair of hlghwaya had
not been put lo use, the Councllmaa
quoted figures which, he Bald, were given
to him by Controller Walton.
The sum of I (0,000 waa toada available,
by Select Council for tha Improvement
of Whitehall Commons, and that the

PETER E. COSTELLO
DIRECTOR TAYLOR SEES
DILATORY TACTICS
Believes Finance Committee
Bills Designed to Complicate
Transit Situation.
Director Taylor, commenting on tho
Financo Committee's transit ordinance,
nnld ihls afternoon-
"Tho ordinances which I Bent Mr. Con
nelly and which wero Introduced In Com
mon Council on January 7 provided for
nn Increased Indebtedness for the purpose
ot 'establishing, purchasing, leasing,
locating, constructing, equipping and Im
proving transit facilities, wholly or in
part, or any ono or more of them,'
This phraseology mado every legal re
quirement but ralrcd no unnecessary
legal ijuestlon. The ordinance reported
by tho Finance Committee today pro
vided for nn Increase In Indebtedness
based on tho assessed valuation of tax
able personnl property. The Insertion of
these words serves no possible useful
purpose.
"Tho only conceivable purpose In Intro
ducing them la to raise possible legal or
llnanclal complications. The law renda
that the municipal loans must be based
"upon 'Hho'-agsessed-'vnluatlon wf 'taxable
property." The courts uaunny insist upon
a Btrict and technical compliance with
every detail of tho law In tho floating of
municipal loans, und the only theory
upon which the unnecessary Insertion
can be nccounted for Is that It was in
tended as a point on which to base some
dilatory legal proceedings.
"I have emphasized over and over again
two things: Ono that It will be impossi
ble to operate n Broad street subway
without having a delivery loop. It would
bo a physical Impossibility to discharge
in tho morning nt two stations all the
passengers collected from 26 other sta
tions, and It would bo equally Impossible
to collect In the evening at 2 stntlons all
the passengers bound for !6 other sta
tions. "Kven If tho operation of such a lino
were possible. Its construction without the
delivery loop would be a great hardship to
property owners and business men In the
central district east ot 12th street, and
what as fur more important It would bo
an outrage on tho public to subject them
twice each day to the Intolerable crowd
ing that would exist at tho two stations
In the delivery district.
"There is, however, the fact that tho
traffic on South Broad street can be ac
commodated on two tracks, while the
traffic on North Broad Btreet would re
quire four tracks, and only half of the
trains coming down Broad street from tha
north would need to go south to South
Philadelphia, whll ethe other half Bhould
ba run around the delivery loop.
"Tho delivery loop will be necessary
also for tho accommodation ot people
coming from South Philadelphia, Every
consideration, therefore, makes the de
livery loop an absolutely essential part
of the Broad street line. No competent
engineer could be found who would rec
ommend the construction of the Broad
street lino without this loop, ,
"To deny the loop therefore Is to veto
the construction of the whole line. This
is not a matter of theory or argument; It
Is a fact which' Is as plain as daylight.
CONNELLY MAKES STATEMENT
"Ordinance Speaks for Itself," Says
Ho,. Complacently.
"The ordinance speaks for Itself. It
designates specifically what Jlnes should
be constructed first. The, 'ordinance now
deals generally with the Northeast and
the Northwest spurs, simply to assure the
citizens In those sections that they will
be taken care of among the first."
This statement was made by John P.
Connelly, following Councils' meeting.
"Regardlngthe definite limit of those
lines, they will ba taken. up when the
question ot routes Is considered. The
exact limits can be designated in later
npi4lnanna, M
"Is It not possible," he was asked, "that
tha construction ot these good paying
lines might not have some Influence on
tne Philadelphia Rapid Trapsit company
in Its agreement with the construction of
all tho HnesT"
"There Is no agreement," he replied,
"with the P. R. T- "Where U UT" "There
Is none so far as I know,"

Reappears in a New Garb.
The Republican Organization, through
its controlled Financo Committee, Intro
duced a "red herring" Rapid Transit plan
at the session ,of Councils this afternoon,
An ordlnanoo was reported providing
for a special election April 23 for tho peo
ple to vote $6,000,000 for Rapid Transit de
velopment.1 Tho ordinance .did not follow
tho Taylor plan, the result ot years ot
expert tnvcstlgutlon. It Ignored the most
essential rccommenndntlons of Directed
Taylor and was n bold attempt to foist
upon tho pcoplo a plan favorable only
to tho Interests of the Philadelphia- RaplX
Transit Company.
Tho Taylor plan provided for an ele
vated structure frbm Front and Market"
streets to Bridge Btreet, Frankford. The,
ordinance introduced this afternoon pnj-
vided for the construction of 'this road to,
Rhawn street.
Tho elevated to Bridge street ,wos tha'
ono feature the Rapid Transit Company
opposed. It wanted a road to Rhawn
street. Tho ordinance making this changa
gives tho Rapid Transit Company th'e
cream of tho plan and lakes from the
people all the advantages that would
have accrued to tho public under the Tayi
lor project. v
Tho ordinance- ignored the delivery
loop, absolutely essential for the even
distribution of passengers throughout tho
business district. It provided for a North
8nd South .Brpadreetsubwax without ,
moans ror" transportation oi naers m;o
tho great downtown business section.
The 1'lnance Committee nrdlnnnre data
not give tlio people of l'lilladrlphla u .

The Flnanre Committee ordinance dees nof
abolish the dlnrrlmtnnlorr 8-rrnt exchanse

The Finance Committee ordinance dors
not provide for Waniifprn from the high speed
linen to the surface lines.

year rach because of the compulsory B-eent
exchange ticket.
Tlio Finance Connnltteo ordinance would
brnelH Frnnlifonl only to the sacrifice of
hundreds ot thousands of riders in other
communities.
BRANDED AS A TRICK.
The ordinance was branded as a trick,
h subterfuge nnd another move In the
consistent policy of delay adopted from
the very first by the Philadelphia Rapid
Transit Company and the leadera-f the
Republican Organization.
it -was termed another move In the
campaign to rob citizens of a real rapid:
transit system while Mayor BIan.kenbu.rg
continues In office for the sole purpose
of having n. Republican Mayor If he Is
elected award tho contracts to political
contractors.
BURLESQUE OF TATLOR PLAN.
Tho Financo Committee's plan Is a
grotesque burlesque of the Taylor plan.
The Taylor plan, explained in detail to
the people' ot all sections of the city,
was Indorsed by them. The plan brought
forward by the Finance Committee 4a
trick the people cannot have the support
of the people.
The Frankford Line as proposed by the
Flnancee Committee will end three mlljja
from that point where tho Taylor line
proposed to have Its terminus. The dla
trlct embraced In these three mllea In
stead ot being thickly populated is prac
tically barren country. It Js estimated
that to construct this line as the Finance
Committee, would have it would cost ad
ditional' millions of public fund? n ex:
cess of the amount necessary under the
Taylor ptan to give quick and efficient
transportation to all the people ot the
northeast section.
REALLY THE: COSTKLO FLAN
Tha Finance Committee's plan la really
the Costello plan.
The Costello plan for Jbe Frankford Una,
was originally introduced In Councils De.
