Learn Hun Vessels Merely Interned People Had Often Been Told German Warships Had Been "Sur rendered Truth Outs. (By Joseph W. Grlgg, Staff. Corre spondent of the N. T. World.) London, June 28. A' severe ttorm of domestic criticism It arising over the scuttling by the German crews of the German war fleet Interned at Scapa ' Flow, north of the Scottish mainland. The British public hat often been told and hat believed that the Ger man fleet surrendered to the British grand fleet last November, Now It learnt In unvarnlthed terms that the enemy fleet was only Interned. What ever might have beejv its fate had It not been aunk, there la a feeling that the Germans have cheated the as sociated powers in determining- the interned warships' future. This criti cism It already voiced In the press. Little Light for the Public. More than twenty-four hours have elapsed since the British patrol boats saw the first Indications of what is believed now on all sides to have been a well laid plot to terminate the his tory of the kaiser's own fleet by Ger man hands. Bo far at the public Is concerned, this dramatic event has been told up to this evening only in several official paragraphs. The next step It expected to come from Paris, now that the fleet, or most of it, has been destroyed and the German crews safely Interned. The armistice terms and not the British fleet are responsible for the destruction of the fleet by the skele ton crews Is the opinion expressed to the World in naval quarters today. The British fleet, at the Instance of the armistice naval commission rep resenting the associated powers, look h the duties of a police force. In carrying out such duties, however, it was declared today, it would "be Im possible to prevent the Germans from opening the seacocks of the ships as they did yesterday, because only Ger mans were aboard their own vessels. Once It was discovered that they had begun to scuttle their ships every ef fort was made to save as many as possible by beaching. Think Plot Was Laid Long Ago. Opinion of many of the naval ex perts, shared also by a large part of the public, is that the plot to scuttle the fleet had long since been accu rately mapped out. Some believe It was by. secret orders recently given that the dramatic stroke by the Ger man crevvs was carried out. Others, however, think that before the vessels went to Scapa Flow for Internment there waa complete un derstanding regarding the scuttling on the eve -of the signing of peace, - As most of the vessels sank In water 120 feet deep it Is considered 'MAIN ITEMS GERMANY YIELDS IN SIGNING I (New York World.)

The belief grows that eventually they will be blown up to clear the Scapa Flow wfttcrs 'praised by British Critic. Arthur H. Pollen, a well known -naval writer, says: "I cannot but admire the spirit of the German seamen In sinking the ships sooner than allow them to pass Into the possession of their enemies. It Is a moat remarkable fact that throuphout the v.-ar only one Car man warship, the .subrparlne CU-.15, was captured by us. It was always tli tradition of the German lleet never to surrender, ' 'At the battle of the Falkland Isl ands, when capture or destruction was absolutely certain, the Germans scut tled the Leipzic, Gneisenau and Nurem berg, At Jutland they preferred scut tling the Lutzow, although at the time the ship was crowded with wounded and could not have remained afloat long under any clreumBtances. ; "The fighting spirit o the German navy was always terrific, and had their submarine commanders maintained anything like a sense of fair play the name of the Hun sailormen would not now be one for execration throughout the world." Admiral Sir Terey Scott says: "It servos us riRht for trusting the Huns. They showed throughout the war that they were not a civilized race, and they oupht never to have been treated as such." Admiral Sir Cyprian Bridge says; "It looks like a concerted plan directed from Berlin In some way. In the old days after an enemy ship had struck her flog any damage or loss Buf fered throush the action of the enemy teamen on board would be followed by a court-martial and serious penalty In the event of conviction. The sinking of these ships is a breach of the armi stice, therefore almost tantamount to a new net of war. But, coming as It does at this critical Juncture in the ne gotiations, it means that the Germans intend to deprive the allies of as many Yarshlns as possible. Explosion Followed Sinking. London, June 22. Early this morning a violent explosion occurred close to the spot where one of tha German war ships was sunk yesterday, says a Kirk wall dispatch to the Central News. A huge column of water and much debris were thrown up. The single German warship which remained anchored last night has gone apround. All the Ger man crews have been placed aboard the British battleship Royal Sovereign. The Sunday Observer says that while naval opinion at rortsmouth holds It would have been better to have British guards on the German ships, their sink In may be considered as removing n difficulty which mlKht have led to heart-burning anions the allies con cerning their disposition. The German skeleton crews were relieved monthly ond returned to Germany. They were fed only such provisions as they would have obtained In their own country. Commander Kenworthy. M.
