Loss Of Great Liner Justicia
Was Not Promptly Given
To Public
New York, July 24. The manner in
whifii cable dispatches, telling of the
torpedoing of the great liner Justicia,
arrived here toauy, made it evident that
the news had been held up by the Brit
ish censor. It was noted in this con
nection that the attack was announced
in Berlin at the same tife that it be
Cume known hero. From this, it is as
sumed that the news was circulated by
the German official wireless, a:er
which dispatches were released by the
Ttritish censor. Reports received iu the
financial district indicate that the at
tack occurred iast Saturday. The ca
bb'S icceivcd here were - fragmentary
in form.
The Justicia was the largest ship that
has i'Miea victim to the submarine war
fare, fche was larger than the Ltisi
tania by nearlv two himdr,?d tons dis
placement, but was neither so long nor
so broad.
-rk'rft are stiii large ships in the
ivansport and fieight service, notablt
among these being the Olympic, of more
thau 40,000 tons, and tho Aquitann of
more than 45,000 tons. The Justicia
also wa3 exceeded in siz1; by the L: i-
nt hia:, iormerly the Hamburg-Ameri
can linei Vaterland which displaces
moie than 54,000 tons. She was larg--er
than the Maurctanin, which is a bis
ter ship to tho Lusitania. The Paris,
hug,.1 liner of the French line, displaces
nil even i!0,0uU tons. The Justicia was
a trimly built craft, of lines resembling
those of the Vutevland. She had a high
superstructure which made hor extreme
ly roomy abov,e decks. She was fitted
wi'h luxurious staterooms, which were

State Department Has
Yet Received No word on
Subject From Spain
Washington; July 24. The state de
partment has not yet received the re
ported informal peace suggestions
launched by Germany through the
Spanish government.
Preliminary examination of the
terms outlined in cable reports indicate
that Germany is offering nothing new
or interesting, if the outline is correct.
The allies, it has been repeatedly stat
ed, must see the Hun ready to relin
quish Belgium and Serbia beforo nego
tiations ure possioie.
These nations cannot bo used as
fawns, allied diplomats have stated re
cently. So far as the Rumanian and
Hussian peace treaties are concerned.
both the United States and Britain
have emphatically declared thew treat
ies would not be recognized by tho al
lies. Officials see in the reports th! usual
German tactics of wiling nut. peace
feelers during a military venture de
signed to distract tho allier from thu
real business of whining the battle anrl
the war.
