Miss Falrchlld's statement to him of
her Intention to marry Hoppe was one
of the chief factors tn bringing about
the prisoner's discharge.
When told to-day that Mlsa Kulr

ho would bring Hoppe beforo him to
find out whether ths alleged romance
had been concocted for the purpose
of Imposing on the court.
Miss l-'atrchlld, known sa "Sing

aiost emphatic In her denial that
she had ever said she intended to
marry the rniin she bellevea nhe has
reclaimed. While Judge RosaJsky
refused to-day to discuss the case
for ethical reasons it la understood
there Is much evidence In the Crimi

contention that Mts I'alrchlld had
announced on several oraslons her
purpooe to marry tba prisoner as

The Premier's statement on sub
marine warfun waa altogether the
moat satisfactory heard In England

"It Is mum more difficult," ho said,
"for me to irlve a public answer on
this than on any other topic. It
Is very difficult for me to give in

"During the last tares weeke or
month we have dealt more eff.
lively with submarines lhan during
any corresponding period of the war.
This Is true of this week as well tVI
of the preceding weekf. There i
no doubt the effect will be made
manifest in a OOOsidsrablS radQOtlon.
Of our Snipping losses.
"It Is true we are ool tsWOIIgti w th
