Dock Laborers Renew Dis
turbances Today Failure
: of Police lo Detect Kaiser's
i Spies Given as Cause.
LONDON, Oct. 19.
Additional anti-German Hole, taking
place today In various suburbs of Lon
don, have kept tho troops and the police,
on edge. Tho centre of trouble con
tinues to be the Deptford district, whero
virtually every shop operated by Ger
mans or those of German descent has
been wrecked and one at least burned.
The. rlotlnu has been led by tho clock
laborers, many of whom nro out of
At Saffron many persons wcro Injured
In the llotlns. At Wnlden the mob
etormed the home of u lending cotin
icllor, who was charged with harboring
Germans, and his household goods wcro
destroyed, while ho was severely beaten
before icscued by police.
The chief complaint of tho rioters is
that the police have been Inactive In
stamping out espionage. Hundreds of
letters have been received by tho lead
ing newspapers, all complaining tjiat tho
Germans were able to keep the Knlscr
nd his officials posted on nil movements
of British troops; on the progress which
was being made by the recruits and of
everything that was being done In tho
dockyards and arsenals. Denials by high
Government oiliclals hnvo been dlsre
Earded, and the temper of the mobs Is
5com!nR l"C'-pasIngly bitter. It Is feared
""' '"c "ulH "'" spread to other cities.
The immediate cause of the outbreak
was th arrival of EGO Belgian refugees
In the district. Bands of dock laborers
smashed windows, Invaded the shops,
wrecking tho Interior and scattering the
Jtock in tlie streets.
One shop was set afire. In one case
the proprietor wn lmrn in i..nir.M.i .
ion of a naturalized Englishman, and his
wife Is a Belgian.
Scores of arrests were mado and pre
cautions have been taken to prevent fur
ther rlotln today.
There were more thnn 30 Englishmen in
the batch of prisoners when they wero
arraigned todny In Greenwich police
court. Tho prosecutor expressed regret
at being compelled to proceed against the
nlsoners saying theft he realised thai
they had been led away by a spirit of
public patriotism. However, n consider

cided to nsk that the prisoners be re
