LONDON. March 1. The vote ot
credit asked by the government, the
largest ever 'put before the house,
was adopted unanimously.
LONDON, March 1. The estab
lishment of a virtual blockade of hos
tile countries Is Britain's reply to
Germany's attacks on merchant ship
ping, as announced officially today
by Premier Asquith in a momentous
speech In the House of Commons.
Tho plan of the allied government for
tlie regulation of shipping to snd from
ports of hostile natlona contemplates the
prevention of commodities of every kind
'reaching or leaving those ports, without,
however, involving risks of neutral ves-
aels or their crews. Tho allies will hold
themselves at liberty to capture goods
presumed to have como from hostile
. countries or deemed to be destined for

of confiscating ships or cargoes which
' are detained, unless they are liable to
confiscation under normal conditions of
The premier revealed these measures

- Germans t ailed Pirate.
- Referring to the German naval cam
paign against British shipping. Premier
Aso,ulth declared that Germany had vio
lated systematically all the conventions
intended for the mitigation, of warfare.
It had taken further steps, the premier
said, . by organising "an under-sea cam
paign of piracy and pillage." Germany,
he declared, waa not blockading and
could never blockade English shores.
Referring to what he termed whispers
of pears, Mr. Asquith said It waa not time
. to talk of peace; that this time would
arrive "or1.? when' the great purpose-of
the allies are in sight of accomplishment.-'
The premier pointed out that en April.
1 the war would harve lasted 240 days,
with an average expenditure of 1.510,000
(S7.vu0.000) daily. After, making full allow
ance for all items not in the nature of re
coverable loans, tho dally expenditure
would not work out less than 1,300.000.

LINCOLN, March 1. (Special.)
The attempt of the democratic ma
jority of the house to throttle the
repulbicans who were loaded for the
debate on the Lanfgan resolution

when a motion by Lanigan to cut

This Is the first step toward severing

so far this session In an effort to bring

When Lanigan of Greeley sent up his
resolution last, Friday, which was a veiled
attack upon the railway commission, and
then attempted to deprive the republican
minority of tho opportunity to dlscnss the
question. Floor Leader Mockotl of tho re
publican minority served notice upon the
majority If they wanted to stsrt such
proceedings they would find the repub
licans wining to meet them and pay
them In' the same coin. '
Fear Republican Attack.
It was evident today that Lanigan and
his friends feared the attack which the
republicans had prepared, and the only
way to top it was to prevent them from
speaking at any length upon the subject.
The five-mtnute limit for speeches was
practically f topping all debate, as not
one of the speakers could begin to enter

keel up, while several of Its crew ran
along the bottom of the vessel, and then
disappeared from sight.
