and to nake it possible r for the

those demanded J, by Senator
Chaniherlain and other critics of
Secretary Baker.
.That the bill gives the execu
tive entirely ioq great'powers and
minimizes the prerogatives, of
congress to a great extent is the
opinion of many- senators, reach
ed after a study of the text of the
measure. The Republican whip
has called a meeting of the Re
publican senators for tomorrow,
at which party action will be con
sidered. No Democratic caucus
has been called and probably will
not be although there is known
to be much secret opposition de
veloping in the ranks of the Pres
ident's party, with the probabili
ties that this opposition will
come into the open soon.
A majority of the Republican
senators are openly announcing
their bitter opposition to the bill.

WASHINGTON, February 8 Associated Pres A troopship, bearing nearly 2200 United States
officers and enlisted men three women passengers, thirty-two who4 are not specified in tho
list and British officers and crew numbering 190, to all 2397 souls was torpedoed Tuesday night by a
German submarine fifteen miles off the coast Of Ireland. This "was the British steamship Tuscania
being utilized as a trancport for American troop en voyage to France. Of tnese 2296 are report
ed to have been saved and 101 to have been lost. Official figures given out by the war department
last night differ somevwhat .from these figures for they make the number of missing troopers 113.
It is not likely that the full casualty list will be reported for several days. - . .
Convoyed by British warships and destroyers the Tuscania was nearing the Irish coast when "
a submarine: .came out of the.darkness and sent a torpedo into the big troopship. .Undoubtedly
most jOf those missing were killed or so seriously 4njured by the explosion of the torpedo that es
cape for-them -was impossible for forty-four, mutilated bodies of American soldiers Dave been
washed ashore .on the Irish coast fifteen miles from the scene of the disaster. .;. . '

DISCIPLINE AND HEROISM SHOWN ''5 J'ft'
Always maintaining the discipline the men and, passengers' were
marshalled to their positions and ordered to the boats. In .debark- '
ing from the steamer he same good order, prevailed and boat after
boat was loaded and put away. The steamer remained afloat for
two hours after the torpedo exploded but no time was lost in man
tling the life boats and ordering them away once it was determined ! .
the vessel was sinking. Most of the boats were later? picked up 7
by the convoying Britsih warships and .destroyers and were taken
to Buncrana and Lame. Ireland, but some we're evidently missed ; '
us a party of ten was reported as reachinglhe coast of Scotland. .' ; ,
Therewere some terrible hours of exposure and hardship foi-
tlie inmates of some of the boats and this was shown by their, phys
ical , condition upon reaching port. ' Despatches said that of 550
landed at one port more , than sixty were sent to hospitals and' that - :
f the 150 landed at .the other port there were eighty hospital
vases, among which were two cases of pneumonia and two, of ty-,
i hoid fever or typhoid pneumonia. . "',
