The case of the sinking of the steam ship Armenian is widely divergent from the sinking of the Lusitania in some re spects, judging by the information which is at hand at the present time; and it should not be treated by Americans inj the same light. Standing out conpieu- cusly in those widely different conditions is the fact that the Armenian was carry ing' a contraband of war, in fact, its whole cargo, consisting of mules to rx- utcd by the enemies of Germany, was1 contraband and as such was seizable on the high sets by the enemy of the allies. Moreover, it is probable thst the German j fovemment had been made cognizant of the nature of the cargo even before the Armenian left the. Amerin shore for Lnglsnd; and German submarines were undoubtedly sent out with the definite pnrposa of capturing or sinking the steamship. This, coupled with the fact that the vessel was flying the P.ritich f!sg, msde her the object of legitimate attack by aa enemy of the British na-j tton. So much was surely known to the Germans in the attacking submarines; aid oa that ground the attack m juli fW, according t the rulia of interna tional warfare. Moreover, more rompl'-te Justification for the sinking of the ship ia Utterly afforded by the announcement that tha Armenian diaohfyed the com j mand to bait and be overhauled, an i made full speed to ft away from tk submarine, resulting in the shilling of the alow moving bulk and her dtruc txxn.

City Council Getting Anxious to Start Work on State Street Bridge. Action was taken at a special meeting of the city council last evening looking toward an early start on the construc tion of the steel bridge which ia to span the North Branch river on State street and the erection of a new building for occupants of the city farm. City t-nci neer Reed wa instructed, on motion of Alderman Kent, to iourncv to Burling ton, lav in wait for Engineer Sinclair and wait until be secured plans for the proposed bridge. Plans for the new span nave been expected for some time, but tbey have not been forthcoming, and it the earnest desire of the council to start construction of the bridge at the earliest possible date. Considerable discussion by the mem ber of the council aa to what abould be done at the city farm toward carrying out the recommendation of the special committee, which reported at a spe cial city meeting severs! weeks ago, re suited in an agreement being made to make a trip to the farm on the W oroes er branch road this afternoon, look over the building and return to the city hall to attempt to decide upon some definite plan. 1 be chief cause of concern is to designs te some competent person to oversee, the work of construction witn aa little expense a possible. The coun cil may authorize the building commit tee to have direct charge of the matter. The spec is 1 meeting waa called pri marily to consider the matter of a high way being laid out between the, Leland and Willard properties on tate street, upon which a hearing was held two weeks ago and the petition for such a highway was tabled for two weeks aft er much testimony had been heard. On Alderman Kent'a motion, the matter was still further ordered to lie until July 2 because of the aWnee of one member of the eoiihcil. Mayor Boutwell broughfr up the mat ter of municipalities being affected by the workman's compensation law which went into effect yesterday, he being un decided whether or not the city comes under the act. -None of the aldermen be ing able to shed any light on the ques tion, it was voted to have the legislative committee visit the industrial accident board at the State House this morning at ten o'clock and gain, if possible, the desired information. A report from City Attorney Hunt relative to an ordinance pertaining to spite buildings and fences was read and accepted. The report of Mr. Hunt con tained the belief that auch an ordinance would be useless and he advised against an such enactment. If prosecutions are desired, they msy be made under the atate law, concluded the report. . Alderman Kyan a motion that the city attorney be authorized to discontinue the contract with Mr. Jewett on the Mid dlesex road allowing hi in the use of a spring in the highway, waa carried. It waa explained that Mr. Sicily, another farmer, haa been using the spring for some years and it was voted to repay Mr. Jewett the $15 which he had paid for the indefinite use of the water. The matter of making a contract with some rarty to resurface tar sidewalk was left with the street committee. Mr. Abbie Farhara made a trip in the former' auto to Lowell, Mas, last week, where they are visiting relative. Eugene Eastman waa in Bradford the first of the week on business.
