it in Enghnd.
Admiral Sims has positively re

Some navy officials are inclined to
suspect the German spy system in
England, despite the statement of
Secretary Daniels, that the incident
emphasized the fact that the German
spy system still is at work in this
country. It the info mation was sent
from the United States it was made
doubly difficult because it had to pass
the official censorship.
It was stated officially today that
only a few officers in the office of
Admiral Benson, chief of operations,
knew the destination of 'the destroy

were Ignorant of the port until they
opened sealed orders probably twelve
