ARRESTS LIKELY TO
San Francisco, Jan. 31. Arrests
and prosecutions In connection with
the suspicious circumstances which
compelled the great army transport
Mount Vernon to abandon her voy
age to Vladivostock and return here
will depend on a thorough investiga
tion to be conducted at the Mare Is
land navy yard by both the mechan
ical experts of the yard and the army

roll A. Devol, chief of the service here
announced today. The Mount Vernon
was taken to Mart Island early to
day. General Devol announced he would
go to Mare Island Monday to direct
an examination of the vessel unit by
unit. His suspicions have been ground
ed principally on the flooding of the
fire rooms with fresh water from a
mysterious source and a fire in the
coal bunkers,, whioh has been burn
ing for more than 48 hours.
This fire was under such control
today that Lieutenant Charles Mc
Neil, General Devol's aide, was en
