Berlin, March a-- Two officers nnd
mty-clght men were drowned early to
day when the German cruiser Yorck
rammed and sank the German torpedo
hu.u destroyer SITS off the Island of
Helgoland. In the North Pea. Tlip small
t r lwit went down so quickly that only
fifteen of her crew of elghty-llvo were
,ived. LleuL Pics, the noting com
mander of the sunken vessel, was
among those lost.
The exnet circtimstnnccs of the dls
rster nro not yet known. It Is under
ftiod, however, that night mtinn'Urcs
were going on and In the early morning
t e vessels were operating without
slits The cruisers and battleships
were sailing nt full speed In simile tile.,
Lieut lies with his boat S17s tried to
pass through this column, between the
Y rck and the cruiser ahead of her.
It appears that he miscalculated the
c.stance. for the cruiser crashed into
' s vessel nnd sent her to til" bottom,

Th.s is the genr rally anep.ed story,
but Admiral von Tirpitz. the M'nlster of
Marine, In announcing the dNaster In
the Itelchstng. said he did not know
whether it h.id occurred during the
manieuvros or immediately afterward
wnen the extinguished lights had been
replaced. He said there was .1 natural
feeling of lassitude after the strain of
.he work during the manu'iivres. He
ascribed the fact that so few were saved
n the high ea. the stormy weathe r and
the darkness, lie added:
"The navy deeply mourns the early
deaths of so many of their comrades
nnd will revere their memory. The
1 iptnnry of the disaster will spur the
r.avy to fulfil their duty to the Km
pernr and the empire."
n..!her version of the nccldent given
to-night is that the HITS was rammed In
the course of a daring night mnnuiivre,
uhich I often practised In the German
taw. namely an attempt of destroyers
and torpedo hnats to cut through a lino
"f battleships and cruisers. This ma
noeuvre, which was Intimated above, has
ausetl the loss of several destroyers In
pasi years, although heretofore there
has never been any such loss of life.
Still another version of tho accident
li that tho destroyers were anchored
seven miles to the northeast of Helgo
ind, exactly In th, course of the
Yorck, and that tho Utter was unable
to tec them In tho storm and dark
ness. The lost officers are Senior Lieu
"nam I'les, the acting commander, and
Senior Lieutenant Schede. Llcuten-

i i.inder of tho destroyer, was away

Dr. Arthur Krledmann, who came here

missioner said, however, that nothing
stood in the way of Dr. Krledmann
making tests In other Institutions so

which were prescribed by the County
Dr. Lederle said he did Jiot cam to

were contldentl.il. The Hoard of Health
will take Mich bacteriological nnd chem

Dr. Arthur Krletlmann made the state

by this could not be Itarned. It was
evident that he could not refer lo tho
suggested use of the Montelloro Homo
at ninth street nnd liroadway for tho
testing of the remedy, when It was
learned that the board of managers and
the medical director of that institution
had decided positively against the prop
osition, for the present at least.
The men who were prominent In get
ting Dr. Krledmann to tills country are
not nbashed by these reverses. They

ally himself nnd carry out the tests
under the conditions laid down by tho
County Medical Society, 1 me of these
men, who did not wish his nnmn used,
said yesterday that he had secured the

SULZER AND MURPHY
IN PATRONAGE TALK
Report Is That O'Gormnn Is to
Shnke the Federal
Washington, March S. An Important
conference In regard to Kcderal patron
age In New York State was held to
night In the Shorehum hotel. It was
attended by Gov. Sulzer. Chas. K. Mur
phy, Senator O'Gormati, Norman K,
Mack, William II. Kltzpatriek of K.rlc
county and John If. McCoocy, the
The conference followed n talk that
Gov. Sulzer had hud with President
The Impression prevailing here since
Gov. Sulzer arrived In town Is that he
would make an effort to get President
Wilson's ear In the matter of Kcderal
patronage In New York. If he could
do that It would be n big help to him
In his pretensions to pet himself up as
the Democratic Stnte leader.
It Is believed that Gov. Sulzer
broached this subject at his conference
with the President nnd that he learned
then that President Wllon will be
guided In New York patronage matters
chiefly by Senator O'Clorman.
It was reported after the meeting of
the leaders at the Shoreham to-night
that Gov. Sulzer had Iwn "spanked"
and that the understanding was
reached that Senator ''Gorman should
handle the patronage situation.
It Is believed that some of the choic
est plums that will fall to Democrats
In New York were distributed nt this
conference, but the leaders were mum
when It broke up.
Gov. Sulzer gave a knffe klatsch In
the ellow parlor In the New Wlllard
Hotel to-day. His 'guests were the four
teen Indian chiefs, headed by Hnl-
, low Horn Hear and Ited Cloud.
The party proceeded to devour a
rep.ist of sweetmeats, washed down
with large cups of strong coffee They
listened to the music of the Spanish
students' orchestra, hut conversation
was noticeably slack while the tables
At the conclusion of the repast Hol
low Horn Hear expressed to Gov. Sulzer,
through an Indian Interpreter, the
thanks of the Indians for the past ef
forts of the Governor as a legislator In
Congress In behalf of the aborigines.
Hollow Horn Hear was followed by Ited
Cloud, who expressed similar senti
ments. The chiefs appeared In full savage
regalia. Just as yesterday they had par
ticipated in the great Inaugural pageant.

UPSETS OLD TRADITIONS
Issues Statement in First Person
Sits in Roosevelt's Old
Wasiiinotov, March i.---Woodrow
Wilson's first Important act as Presi
dent was to serve notice Hint he has
shifted the burden of patronage dis
tribution from his own shoulders to
thoso of the members of his Cabinet.
This notice came in the form of nn
announcement from the President him
self that he feels constrained to d.
cllne to see office seekers except when
he himself Invites un Interview,
This statement by the new President
was only one of several developments
which Indicated the Inauguration of a
new regime nnd new methods at the
Heretofore it lias been customary for
all White House statements to be Is
sued In the third person, Not so with
Mr. Wilson. He handed out n type
written slip, written In the Mrst person,
announcing that he had offered nn Am
bassadorship to National Chairman
William K. McCombs and disclosing that
Mr. McCombs could have had a place
In thelcablnet If he had so desired.
Also there were indications of the
application of President Wilson's open
door policy at tho White House. Jo
seph P. Tumulty, the President's bee
rotary, was on tap for all visitors. Ho
bobbed in nnd out of his ofHces and half
tho time was holding conferences In
the crowded anterooms. If the visi
tors could not come to Tumulty he camo
to them. The photographers who usually
have been shooed away from the White
House mndo straight for the "open
door" nnd for several hours snapped and
resnappfd everybody nnd everything In
There was one feature of the pro
gramme, which President Wilson Is sup
posed to have mapped out before he
came to Washington, that did not seem
to work out well. It had been said that
Mr. Wilson was determined not to waste
time shaking hands with visitors. Only
about 2.000 persons greeted him to-day,
lmt It was pleaded In extenuation that
this was un unusual occasion and ne
cessitated a lot of public handshaking.
It Is hard to say whether the horde
of office seekers that has already In
vaded Washington or the members of
Congress were Jarred the harder by
President Wilson's patronage statement.
It was apparent Immediately that Ills
declaration of freedom meant that tho
Cabinet officers under his Administra
tion will wield a much more powerful
nrm than In previous years. Mr. Wil
son's statement is interpreted as prac
tically putting all of tho vast post office
patronage at the disposal of Albert S.
Burleson, his Postmaster-General. Tho
word had hardly been passed from tho
White House before the line of attack
by office seekers was shifted toward
the several departments of tho Gov
ernment, and from now on Mr. Wil
son's advisers who control patronage,
nre certain to lead merry lives.
Here is the statement Issued by the
"The President regrets that he Is
obllsed to announce that he deems it hl.i
duty to decline to see applicants far ofllco
in person .except when he himself invite
',it Is his purpose and desire to devota
his attention very earnestly and lery con
stantly to the business of the Government
ami the large questions of policy ntlectlng
the whole nation, and he knows fom his
experience as Governor of New Jersey
(where It fell to him to make Innumerablo
appointments) that the greater part both
of his time mill of hl energy will be spent
In peisounl inlet vWnvs with candidates,
unless lie sets an Invariable rule In t))o
"It Is his Intention to deal with ap
pointments throush the hearts of the v
eral executive departments."
The President lsmcd his patronage
statement us soon as he reached his
office and beforo he had received u
Mr. Wilson got to the Executive
offices this morning Just In time to
witness tho swearing In of Mr. Tumulty,
Ills private secretary. He shook haijiis
with his secretary and about twenty
of the hitter's friends, who had wit
nessed tho cjeremony, and then stepped
Into his own office to begin the duties
of his llrst day in the Presidency.
Mr. Wilson found when ho entered
his office n large high backed chair
with a red scat which did not harmonlzo
at all with tho ijceen color scheme
of the rest of the furniture. It was
explained to him then thy t President
Tuft had bonght tho chair ho had oc
cupied and carried It away as a sou
venir. The clerks In the office had re
called that Theodore Roosevelt had left
this big red rlrnlr behind when he de
parted from tho White House, so they
had lugged It out and set It down In
tho greon color echemo of the rqom.
President Wilson ullowed that the Col
onel's chair would do until he could get
one of hi own.
Tho first business taken up by the
new President wns to dictate letters to
retiring Cabinet members and their
assistants nnd secretaries, accepting
