MERLIN, Oct. ti.—The submarine blockade of certain English harbor* was suggested to the government by several leaders of the von Tlrplt* faction advocating the resumption of submarine warfare, it was learned to day. The von Tirpti* supporters offered this suggestion as a compromise They urge thut such a course would be in accordance with the unnounred determination of Chancellor von i Uethmann-Holwegg to prosecute a vigorous war against England and cut off all English food and ammu nition supplies without endangering the Eves and property of neutrals. The government is not impressed tj the suggestion and there are no present indications thut It can be put into effect.

Nei ther does it forecast the resumption of submarining as some neutrals seem to believe, he said. “Out some Americans fear that submarine warfare may bo com menced again,” he wan told. "American travelers to Germany have been told by business men that submarining should be resumed, but It would be insanity for the gov ernment to resume its submarine policy,” he replied. “It would be insanity to invite (he whole world to enter wot against us unless, we had proof that the war would he ended immediately with a German victory. I don’t behave half the peo ple want tho submarine war re newed.” ONE MORE SWINDLE INEARTHED IN CHICAGO CHICAGO, October 6.—Agents of the states attorney’s office were at tempting to serve warrants today on the alleged perpetrators of a 110,000 swindle involving the sale of patent rights to an imaginary ’’electric fly killing screen.” The swindle.
