' BT ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Washington, Oct. 12. Although the
investigation of the recent submarine
activities has apparently eased the
minds of officials here, it is said au
thoritatively .that should the situa
tion develop a prolonged paralysis of
American trade, the broad issue
might be raised of transcending spe
cific questions of international law in
connection with the submarine raids.
Dislocation of shipping along the
Atlantic seaboard, increases in marine
insurance rates and the possibility of
serious freight congestion are ques
tions which may largely determine
the government's policy. . .
The sinking of the' Dutch steamer
Bloomersdyk, bound from one neutral
port to another, is being considered.
What measures uermany is con
templating against neutral trade from
American ports is a matter of specu
lation. , . .

The plan for bringing Tensacola's

of a special meeting of the board of

the prominent business men of the

The question received much discus

opportunity of securing the bank.
Additional weight was given the
