All the r-rew of the American steamer I.i-elanavv nr. expected to roach Onndee tomorrow when il will lie possible to obtain a lull lo-nimt of the sinkinr of the vessel by a c.orman submarine off the Orkney Islands on Sunday night. 'Uilv a meagre account has be. n re "eivfd but it is clear that the subma rine rave the steamer ample vvarui.i:;. even pinioning the crew to colle- t a part of their effects before taking them aboard ihe submarine which then with combined shell fire and bombs sent the vessel t,, the bottom. Tilt- fait that the crew of the vessel was saved caused a feeling of relief in official iuarters but then- are many evidences of apprehension that if C.er many continues to promise payment and y t destroys more American ships, a new situation might be created whi'h would require a further warning t Berlin. The fact that the lcelanaw carried a ''il'VT.i of flax which vv is declared absolute- contraband by C.ermany on April IS tloes not alter the view of the Fnited States government that the contra -hand might have been removed and the vessel spared. I'mk-r the general rules of interna tional law the destruction of a neutral vessel carry ing contraband was not ad mitted until the famous Knight-Com- j Texas which was then blockaded must be released since the- blockade 'could not be legally separated against 'a neutral coast. It is probable that Lansing will draft a new note on the i entire matter, and submit it to the President on fils return. Committee Is Named For The Main Line Railroad Seven ?
