Sunday, June 4
London A report of the naval engagement off the coast of Jut
land on Wednesday Is given out with greater completeness. The feel
ing of disappointment which accompanied the receipt of the first
news, when German claims-of victotv had their effect, is changed to
one of gratification that British ships were able to engage a superior
enemy and drive him back to the cover of his coast defenses, The
reappearance of the superdreadnought Warspite and the battleship
Marlborough in port after the battle although sorely wounded, gives
substantial contradiction to original German claims that these ships
had been sunk; while German admissions of further substantial loss
es than those at first announced add still further to British satisfac
tion. - '
The British lost three capital ships of the battle-cruiser type.
Ihese are the Queen Marv, Indefatigable and Invincible.
The Germans lost fourcapital ships, i.e.: Dreadnought Westfalen,
18,900 tons, carrying 963 men, the battleship Ponnnern and two
battle-cruisers, believed to be the powerful Deifllinger and Lutzow,
newest and most powerful of the German fleet, each of 28,000 tons.
British loss is three to the German four, British boats, however,
having the greatest tonnage.
Of the cruisers lost the Admiralty lists show the Defense, Black
Prince and Warrior lost. The German four are the Wiesbaden,
Elbing, Fraucnlob and one other. The claim that the Frauenlob was
sunk was substantiated yesterday when a tug reached the Hook of
Holland with the eight survivors of the crew of 350 which the cruiser
carried into the fight. Germans admit the loss of the Elbing, a new
light cruiser, but claim to have destroyed her themselves. The craft
was disabled and unable to keep her place in line. To prevent her
falling back into British hands she was blown up. None of the crew
British lost in torpedo craft, eight missing. Germans lost six.
Each side lost a submarine, Germans also lost two of the six
Zeppelins which had been engaged in the battle.
The loss of life on both sides was heavy. The British loss from
drowning is more than 4000 from 5 ships, the survivors being some
junior officers and a few seamen.
Rear adm'ral Hood, whose flag was flbvvn by . the Invincible,
went down with that ship as did also its commander, Captain Prowse.
Capt. Sowerby of the Queen Mary, a former attache at Washington;
Capt. Cay. of tht Indefatigable, and Capt. Prowze of the Invincible,
are among the dead. There was no surrender on the part of the Bri
tish. Each shin sunk carried down with her the entire crew, with
the exception of the cruiser Warrior, from which a greater number
of officers and men were rescued. There were nearly a thousand
drowned when the Queen Mary settled and sank. No survivors from
among the crews of the Invincible, Indefatigable, Defense and Black
Prince. German losses were colossal.
Among German torpedo boats sunk was No. 28. Three survi
vors report crew of a hundred lost. Amsterdam dsspatch says six
German destroyers sunk and a damaged cruiser tcved into Kiel.
Estimated 150 were engaged. British claim they beat Germans
back into port, but Berlin claims she fought the whole modern fleet
of Britain and defeated it. .
London British press is critical ot policy which forced the bat
tle. The Loudon Daily News urges the return of Lord Fisher to re
place Admiral Jackson. Says country is'in need of Lord Fisher at
this urgent hour.
Chicago Hughes enters well ahead. Leaders concede him to be
the "first favorite.
Germans Gain Some Ground
Loudon Germans gain some ground on the West. Drive French
at Vaux and wrest some positions from British at Ypres salient after
hard fighting. British submarines are reported busy in the Baltic.
They sink three German vessels and Berlin announces that this is
probably in violation of neutrality of Sweden, being in her waters.
Preparedness Is Desire
Chicago Preparedness is the national desire. Hundreds of thou
sands in many cities paraded yesterday to show sentiment.
Honolulu A first class cruiser is coming here as flagship for tht
naval militia. The cruiser St. Louis is to be stationed in Hawaii.
Admiral Boush announces that he expects the arrival of the trim
fighting vessel at Pearl Harbor within a few weeks. Will provide Ha
waiian militia seamen with the best ship devoted to that service.

that in Wednesday night's great naval battle the British sought

Germans Held The Field

spite, mentioned above, are in the same class, being 27,000 tons, cost
