Senator J HamlKort Lewi, of Illinois,

tho Supreme Court, tho latter said that '
Oe-rmnny's action wn on or tne grcaiesi

"For myself, I think it ns one of the
greateKt dlplomatfe victories of history,"
Senator Loitls declared, "It wna greater

that would relate to ono thing. This ln

him call on Secretary Lansing today

submarine that destroyed tho Arabic had
been sunk showed that the) Kaiser's
Government I nnxlous to please tho
flitted States. This attitude, they be.
llete, foreshadows a complete understand
Inft between the two government.
Secretary Lansing explained that the
United Htntes would regard this as an
answer to th last not of President Wil
ton dealing with the Lusltanla case.
There Was llttlb doubt, however, In Ad
ministration circles, that "flltls" will bo
written on the submarine problem within
a very short time.
In his hasto to notify Secretary of State
Laming, lie did not visit to make a
written translation, but Immediately
arranged an appointment with tho Secre
tary for)10:w.M m. He arrived 11 minutes
ahead 6t this hour and whs admitted
Ills first form of communicating the
German answer 'to th President's latest
demands on tho Berlin Government for It
wm to such an answer that the "memo

Having conveyed his Information to
Secretary Lansing, the Ambassador raced
bock by atiomoblle to his embassy, made
an English draft of th note and dli
patcned It, by special messenger, to the
State Department, whero work began Im
mediately on tho preparation of a copy
for I'rcsldcnt Wilson.
Ambassador Page at London cabled the
State Department today that It Is gon
crnlly believed In official circles In Great
Britain tdat tho submarine which sank

the next day. He said no ofllclal report

BERLIN, Sept l.-A tribute to Presi

the German-American situation and the
activities of Colonel Roosevelt nnd former
Secretary of State Bryan.
Th Zeltung Informed Its readers that
President Wilson had been placed In a
peculiarly difficult position between the
"peace-at-any-prlce" group, headed by
Bryan, and a group headed by Colonel

Check Erection of 15 Ed-
dystone Buildings
A strlko of 700 men which may com
pletely tie up the erection of 15 buildings
at, tho Remington Arms Company at
fdd)tone wns threatened today bv
Leonard Kraft, secretary of the Building
Trades Council.
It was nnnounced thot Kraft, Joseph
Ritchie, president of the council, and other
ofllrlals of organized labor will confer to
day with tho emploxers nt l'ddystono. If
the officials of the Remington Company
yield to their demands, he said, work will
continue Otherwise a strike will be
culled today or tomorrow.
The Remington concern Is manufactur
ing arms for belligerent European coun
tries, emplojlng mechanics of the Bald
win Locomotive Works nnd using the
plant of the latter company In the work.
The new buildings ore being constructed
on the slto of the Baldwin concern.
"We called uppn Mr. Converse, chief
engineer of the Baldwin Works, and re
quested that union men be employed in
tho erection of the Eddystone plant. This
was on July 23," said Mr. Kraft. "Ho
then refused absolutely to comply with
our request, but Bine that time demand
for the completion of tho plant has be
come so great that he haa been compelled
to employ some union men. The result
Is that organized labor Is now In a posi
tion to hold up the operations unless It
Is agreed to employ union men ex
clusively," Mr. Kraft said that among the trades
to be called out are the plumbers, elec
tricians, steam fitters, lathers and cement
finishers. Carpenters arc already on
strike, accoidlng to another announce
ment by Mr Kraft.
At Kddystone It was dented today that
any carpenters had been called out. or
that theie were any Indication of a strike

This Is New Theory of Detec

Man's Mysterious Death.
Look for Enemy
umucl S. Cord, the Laurel Sprlnga real
estate man, whose bullet-marked body
whs found behind a rail fence oft tho
Itlver road, three blocks from the Tlsh
House. N. J., station yesterday, wns shot
and killed In tin automobile, in the opin
ion of the Camden County detocthes at
work on the case.
All doubt that Cord wns murdered has
been cleared up In tho minds of the de-
lAndwA. Thw !! hav nlifltlHnnpil IIim
I first theory that the motive was robbery,
I and now believe that It followed a aquar
rel over a real estato transaction.
Captain of Detectives Cameron was
called Into the cose early today. He hag
been asked to nnd out. If possible,
whether or not Cord left this city late
Monday afternoon In an automobile, nnd
who wns in the car with him
Thn Camden de teethe say that all tho
oldcnce points to a shooting In an auto
mobile, Tho spot where the body was
found, on the outskirts of Camden, near
the Junction of the Cove and Itlver roads.
Is 12 miles across country from the Cord
mansion at Laurel Springs.
Cord's own automobile was In his
garage at his home. He would not have
been In the vicinity where his body was
found unless he was In the machine of
some one else, the detectives assert.
The theory that the shotlng followed an
argument over a real estate transaction
also Is carried out, the detectives say, by
the fact that eory bit of paper In Cord's
pockets was minutely examined. Every
pocket liml been searched. Personal let
ters had been taken from their envelopes,
legal and rtalty documents opened, nil
apparently while the murderer wns on his
way from the point where the body was
left back to the road.
A trail of such papers led from the
body to the road. It wns this that flrnt
attracted the attention of Itajmond nnd
Albert Malloy, of River avenue, Pen
sailken, who discovered the dead body
face downward In a shallow ditch.
Cord's widow was on tho verge of col
lnpso at her home this morning, Sho
did not sleep last night. Most of the
time she sat by the telephone, calling up
County Prosecutor Kraft at tho Court
House In Camden, who also was up all
nUht on tho case, Mr. Cord Is firmly
convinced that her husband was mur
dered, but sho can gle no clue to the
Seven high-powered automobiles raced
over tho roads of Pensauken township
nnd adjoining country all during the
night, filled with amateur detective..
Nearly everybody In tho township haa a
clue of somo kind about the murder and
Insists on working It out according to
his own Ideas.
At dawn County Detectives Levin, Do
ran and" aribben were confining them
selves to Laurel Springs. They would
not explain why the chase had narrowed
down to that town, but each believed
that It would not be long before arrests
were made.
Residents talked ot nothing else to
day but the murder. It Is the greatest
sensation since Cord founded the place 23
jears ago and started to develop It
through real estateo deals.
There Is n possibility, the detective
say, that two men were Implicated In the
killing of Cord. Two of the bullets that
struck him went through the heart. Two
others went through his abdomen. The
theory has been advanced thnt each pair
was fired by a different man. What at
first was thought to be a fifth bullet
wound, under the elbow, is now believed
to have been a bruise, caused perhaps by
the arm striking a stone.
FrUnds of the dead man say that he
had made enemies by his strict business
methods. They assert that he Invariably
kept nil agreements he mnde to the letter,
and that he held those who dealt with
him to the same code. If a purchaser of
real estate failed to make a payment
Cord would start foreclosure proceedings
Instantly, they say.
Recently Cord has had trouble with a
disgruntled customer, the detectives say.
He even went so far as to ask the ele
vator starter In the building where he had
his office not to bring a. certain man to
his office. Just who this man Is the de
tectives do not knsw, Captain Cameron's
men are at work on this end of the case.
A reward that probably will be J1.000
may be offered today for the capture of
Cord's murderer. It Is also possible that
prlvute detective may be called Into the
case The widow I determined to run
down the murderer or murderer.
All the bullet that (truck Cord were
of .52 calibre. Pawnshops are being
Investigated In this city today to find out
If any one giving a New Jersey address
bought such a wearon within the last
tew days.
Men assigned by Prosecutor Kraft, with
what assistance Mr, Cord could give
them, started a systematic examination
of Cord'8 private papers today at his
home. It Is thought that somo light on
the Identity of thote who might be his
enemies may be found from an xaml
nation of these documents. There was
nothing of this kind In the paper scat
tered about Cord's body The police be.
Hove that some paper wa taken out of
the packet.

The long-delayed announcement of Di
rector rotter's candidacy was made
shortly before midnight last night. ev
eral hours after his nomination paper had
been signed and filed. In placing him
self before the voters of Philadelphia,
Director Porter pledged his efforts to
continue tho accomplishments of the
Blnnkcnburg administration In tho event
of his election.
His announcement follows In full:
"Having considered the requests of a
rlous citizen committees, I have decided
to become a candidate for the office of
Mayor of Philadelphia. While I am by
no means unmindful of the great compli
ment which my friends do me In making
this suggestion, I hope I will not bo mis
understood when I say that I am oven
more conscious ot the grave responsi
bilities which will rest upon me should
the wishes of my fellow-citizens place me
In thchlgh offlco of chief executive of the
"For many years I have Interested my
self actively In the advancement of politi
cal conditions In Philadelphia. It has
been my privilege to hold two positions
under the city government, tho first an
elective one, when for five years I served
as Common Councilman from the 22d
Ward, and secondly, the position which
t now hold, an appointive one, as Direc
tor of Public Safety. I have never
aspired to public ofllce, and I feel very
much flattered that the group of cltlxens
numbering several thousand who have
requested me to become a candidate has
not been the result of a round-table con
ference. "Four years ago the citizens of Phila
delphia elected ns Mayor an Independent,
whose term of office 1iaa'"bfcen "replete
wlth"nccompllshmnts of which any man
so handicapped could be proud. If my
conduct of the affairs of the Department
of Public Safety has met with the ap
proval of the citizens of this community,
and there Is a confidence on their part
that I would fulfill the duties of Mayor.
I nm willing to stand on thnt record, and
promlso that In tho event of my election
I shall pursue the same course of devo
tion to public duty as has governed my
actions In my present position."
James Alcorn, whom the committee
recommends for City Solicitor, was an as
sistant city solicitor during tho Rcjburn
administration under Solicitor J. Howard
Gendell. Upon his death Mr. Alcorn was
appointed to succeed him The Organiz
ation refused to Indorse him for re-election.
Mr Alcorn ran last year for tho
State Supremo Court on the non-partisan
Judiciary batlot and polled a large State
wide vote.
Harry H. Walter, who Is recommended
n candidate for nomination for Clerk of
Quarter Sessions, Is an auditor In the em
Ploy of tho Pennsylvania Railroad. He
has n strong following In the northeastern
section of the city, and was Indorsed be
cause It was believed that this section
should receive some recognition, Eugene
J. McAleer, who Is recommended as can
didate for City Controller, was formerly
nn Independent member of Councils from
tho 43d Ward. He also served In the
Legislature, to which he carried his In
dependent tendencies.
Max: Herzberger. recommended for Re
corder of Deeds, Is a well-known attor
ney and Is a leader In a largo number of
Jewish organizations.
