Responsibility of Sinking Lusitania to be Repudiated WARNING GIVEN WILL BE CLAIM OK GERMANY, THINKS WASHINGTON. WASHINGTON, May 7. That tin German government would repudiate the responsibility toward the United States for the Lusitania disaster was the concensus of opinion In official circles. It is believed this expected attitude will be based on the' adver tisements published by the embassy in New York newspapers on the day the vessel sailed warning Americans against traveling on British ships. This warning, followed by the sinking of the vessel, caused a comment con cernlng a possible knowledge by the German embassy of what was to hap pen, but this is wholly unofficial. WASHINGTON, May 7. At the state department it was said the Lusl tanla and the Falaba disasters fell in the same category and undoubtedly would be handled along precisely sim ilar lines, insofar as American official Interest in the matter is concerned.

The revenue de rived In 19H from the system hav ing been ample for the maintenance and operation of the department and for the sinking fund requirements, the commission unanimously decided last evening that. If the same amount o( revenue can be secured this year, the people should have the benefit of the entire water supply without extra charge. The water users are to be given their choice of two different plans os embodied In two separate resolutions, one Introduced by Commissioner Strain and the other by Commissioner Best, Mr. Strain's resolution requires the superintendent to establish mor.lh by month the available excess of wa ter, this excess to he divided pro rata nmong the residential users. Thus In the month of May the surplus is estab-j lished at 25 per cent. If you accept the Strain plan, you sign a contract to pay as much for water this month as you did In May, 1914, and at the same time you will be entitled to use one fourth more water than last year. If you use more than a fourth more, you will be required to pay extra st the rate of 25 cents per thousand gal Ions. If you do not wish to sign the con tract for your pro rata share of the surplus, you will be permitted by the Best resolution to extra water any way. The Best resolution raises the maximum amount of water available at the minimum charge from 4000 gallons to 6000 gallons a month. Thus those who do not sign a con tract for water In accordance with the Strain resolution will be given BOOO gallons of water for a dollar In stead of 4000 as heretofore. In elth. er event, the householder who needs display to delight his eye. That such beautiful and elegant pieces of furniture as are on exhibit were made In our public schools seems almost unbelievable to tho.ie whose school days mennt "reading and ritlng and rlthmitlc." Even the eye of the expert cabinet worker cannot detect flaws in the pieces turned out by the advanced students of the department and there Isn't e home In town but what would proud to own a great deal of the fur nlture. On exhibit there is almost everything In the line of furniture housewife could ask for from I footstools to bedroom sets.
