At the same timer the committee ap pointed will report its findings. r. The council did not, as reported they would, take up the. petition of the Tri-City Hallway company ask ing -an extension until Sept 1, of the agreement granting them the 7 -cent fare. Alderman Knostman, chairman of the committee consid-, Arinff tha nf itlAn rcinnrtuft that ha ! did not think the council Justified in acting upon that matter at a special meeting of the council. The matter very likely will not be de cided by the council until the next regular meeting which will be held on May 19. ' , To Ask Referendum. - It is understood that in case the ; council at that time refuses the extension, one of the Republican minority in the council will pre sent a petition, which is said to be already in his hands, from the com pany asking a referendum of the fare proposition to a direct vote of . the people. The meeting of the council Tues day evening was held behind closed doors. Members were very secre tive as to what transpired and the - names of the committee appointed to investigate the charges against Ewert & Rlchter were not divulged. It was announced however, that the company has in its possession 4,000 two hundred pound sacks of " sugar. No other details of the charges were given.

It might have been a different story if it had been undertaken earlier when the navy department was urging some such bold plan. Sims Vetoed U-Boat Block. Admiral Sims told the president be had been shown studies of the department's plan to prevent the egress of submarines, Mr. Daniels said, and that he considered the scheme impracticable. "Instead of accepting the depart ment's suggestion of great offensive plans." said Mr. Daniels, "or orig inating some plan that promised to stop the egress of German subma rines, his mind was closed to the above, and, as many other extracts show, to every plan looking to the great offensive which in the fall of 1918 was the most effective foe of the submarine." Sims' cable to the president sug gested that the proper policy to pursue was to adopt the "recom mendations he had made to the de partment, "most of which had been decided upon and put in operation before Admiral Sims suggested them," Secretary Daniels declared.

"He added," the secretary con tinued, "that we should adopt an organization similar in ail respects to the British squadron and virtu ally transfer all naval authority to his headquarters in London.

What Mr. Ranfels termed two "remarkable and significant state ments" in Admiral Sims' reply to President Wilson's message were recited by the secretary as evi dence that the admiral was. he said, "so hypnotized by British in fluences that he was willing to try to lure the president of the United States into the feeling that regard less of future developments, we can always count unon the support of the British navy. The "Two Statements." . The first, said Mr. Daniels was that the views Sims had expressed were in all cases "an independent opinion based upon specific facts collected in the admiralty and other government departments." : The second was as follows: "Depend upon the fact, which I believed to be true, that regardless of any future developments we can always count upon the support of the British navy. I have been as sured of this by important govern ment officials. "It would be interesting to know what British government officials gave such assurance," said Mr. Daniels. "It seems inconceivable that any admiral could have re garded such assurances as worth paying tolls to transmit- Every school boy should know that in a Democratic nation, no government official could pledge his country's navy to support another govern ment regardless of future devedop Oients.

"This attitude of acceptance of everything British," he added, "un doubtedly accounts for his opposi tion to the creation of an independ ent American army and his idea that. American troops sent abroad should be used as an annex to the British army, quoting General Bliss as recommending that policy.
