SUBMARINE WHICH DISAPPEARED FROM SEZIA.
Submarine 42, which disappeared from | Speaia, finally turned up at Ajaocio end was duly returned by the Frenoh authorities. The craft was constructed for the Government of Russia for tho price of 1,800,000 lire by the private shipbuilding firm of Fiat San Georgio, at Muggiano on the Gulf of Spezis. It b»d not been paid for by the Rubbibb Government, and therefore was still the property of the builders. It has been proved that Angeli Belloni, who holds a commission in the Italian naval reserve, was responsible for the removal of tbe submarine. BeHoni was always strongly opposed to the neutrality of Italy in tbe war. Be left letters behind bim exonerating the Failors who accompanied him and stating that he bad informed them they were to proceed for exercise at sea. The Seoolo XIX, a daily paper published in Genoj>;,' gave an account ct an interview which B correspondent in Borne bad with various deputies, from whch it would appear tbaMhe general consensus of opinion is that the escapade has no international significance, altbouph the strongest opponents of neutrality had at first hoped that a casuß telli had been "fortunately" brought to light.
Notwilbstandinß this opinion of tho deputies some papers in tbeir leading articles take a different view, and nppcar tor»gaidthe incident as one of exceptional gravity.
