LjBlbl Special Meeting England's Cabinet Is Called To Consider Measures LONDON, May 12. Reports that Chancellor Ijloyd George and other cabinet members ure alHint to retire, and that the formation of a coalition cabinet is contemplated, Is denied by I're-mier Asquith. In the bouse of commons he paid a tribute today to all party leaders, declaring their co-operation obviated thq necessity of a coalition cabinet. LONDON, May 12. So serious had the "alien enemy" problem become today, following the rioting of last night, during which shops owned by naturalized Germans were wrecked, that a special meeting of the cabinet was called to consider measures to be taken. There is a growing feeling that the time has arrived when all persons of (Icrman, Turkish and Austrian birth, whether naturalized or unnaturalized, should be interned until the end of the war. It is believed the cabinet will authorize this action. Sentiment Is Growing Orders for Internment all alien enemies should be issued, it is believed, if for no other reason than to pre serve peace in the cities of the British isles. The rapidly growing anti-German Bentiment throughout the country is putting the police of all cities to a severe test. In many cases, too, the police have refused to protect aliens whose shops aret being wrecked because of their own bitter feeling as a result of the sinking of the Lusi-tania. Several butchers with German names were mobbed in the Smithfield market today and thrown into the CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT The upper picture shows a birdseye map of entrance to the Irish sea, through which many ocean liners have to no to reach Liverpool.

Wild Looters Mob GermansInLdndon Then Wreck Shops LONDON, May 12. incited by an anti-German sentiment that has fair- ly seethed since the sinking of the Lusitania, immense mobs, armed with clubs and stones, today filled the homes, murderously attacked j scores of Germans and their families and openly defied police. . . I Germans, wealthy and poor, were nulled from their homes and beaten. ! I Rich furnishings in German resi - denees were reduced to kindling j wood. Expensive plate glass win - dows In German stores were shatter-! ed with' stones. Cash registers were i dumped into the street and broken. German residents were yanked from their automobiles, as were German chauffeurs. Wherever a German showed hlra- i self he was attacked by the angry mob. Women and girls, their anger almost unlimited, joined with men ;and boys in dealing out what they termed was true Justice to the "German barbarians." Riot calls sent into the police appeared fruitless, responding "bob German Submarines bies" being shoved aside like so many children. The police force has been so thinned by drafts sent to the arm that it could not cope with the angry crowds and special constables had to be called out. They went about their half-heartedly , ,. j j Mobs paraded the streets, shout- inS. singing and demolishing stores and houses and attacking persons bearing Teutonic names.

The course of President Wilson has been determined and will be made publii in the near future, according to 8 statement dealing with the Lusitania situation, issued from the white house announced today. Although a statement to the public at this time was denied, the plans of the president are believed to le: Ask Germany for a more accurate definition of its attitude toward American shipping, cargoes and lives in the war zone; point out that, in all three re-sK-cts, the I nitcd States has lost heavily and, so far as evidence has indicated, through German operations; refer to the sinking of the liner h'ulaha resulting in the loss of the life of l-eon C. T. Thresher, an American, the attack iimiii Ciilfiight and the sinking of the I.usitania; admit that the evidence probably does not conclusively prove that Germany was responsible for the attack upon the steamer dishing and the toiedoiiig of the Giilfliglit, but inquire whether the kaiser's government accepts the responsibility for those two incidents; call atten tion to the fact that Germany lias already accepted responsibility for the attacks tion the I'alaha and I.usitania, and finally, ask that assurances be given that such attacks will not occur again in the future. There is good authority for the statement, that no alternative will be mentioned in the event Germany should refuse to comply with re - quests contained in the note, especially that asking assurances that no further attacks, such as was directed against the I.usitania, will be made. There will be nothing in the nature of a threat or an ultimatum. The communication will be largely in the nature of a dignified remonstration against the German methods of eon-ducting its submarine warfare. The German assertion that, its methods are justified by the policy of allies in endeavoring to starve Ger-i many will not be accepted. The president is hopeful that the message may be so expressed and present so strong a case that Germany itself will admit it is in the wrong. EXKIMTSKS HKI.I) AT V. OK C. BERKELEY, May 12.
