WitKEB.uiRE. Pa., Oct. 14. Theo
dore Roosevelt, b peaking at a Repub
lican mass meeting; here to-night, criti
cised the attitude of President Wilson
on the eight hour day for railroad em
ployees. Ho declared that arbitration
would have been the proper method of
averting tho threatened nationwide
railroad strike, and Instanced the ap
plication of this principle In 1902 when
he fettled tho anthraclto coal ntrlke.
Mr. Roosevelt's trip here from New
Tork as Rooseveltlan In every minute
detail. He started shaking hands when
he reached the Twenty-third street
ferry, where he met two num. half a
doien truck drivers,; several ticket chop,
pers mid all the uniformed employee of
the place and kept It p all the way.
At Newark he pot his first big hand.
A crowd of several hundred crowded
ibout to Rive him a hurrah and a hand
clasp. There were so many he couldn't
srtet every one.
Sorry lie's Xot Oetopaa.
This Is the time I'm aorrjr I'm not an
octopus." he exclaimed.
There was a similar scene at Kas'.on.
The. crowd thero was unusually demon
strative. "Tear 'em up, Teddy!" was the yell
that arose. '
"That's what I'm going; to Wilkes
birre for." the Colonel shouted, "and
I'll do It In straight United States."
Roosevelt drew a big laugh at Allen
town. He noticed a grizzled old man
with a a. A. R. button In his coat lapel.
"What's your regiment T' asked tho

Hoosevelt called with an emphasis on
Sixty thousand turned out at Wilkes

hotel and then tooted Hoosevelt all the

speech was delivered.
The Colonel's Address.
"I have accepted the Invitation to
come to Wllkesbarre to discuss the
Aclamion law, because Wilkesbarro Is
the headquarters of the great Industry
In connection with which I myself as
1 resident was brought Into close and In
timate touch with tho labor movement In
this country. If what I have to sjy Is of
any value It mud be not only liecause It
represents what in the abstract Is right,
but also because In the concrete I ap
plied, in arttml nraMU. ...I... i f .

fore, I nh to recapitulate to you Just
hit occurred In connection with the
anthracite coal strike and to contrast It
with "hat Mr. Wilson has done In con
iicctlon uith the law for the Increase of
laces on railroads.
"In the case of tho settlement of the'
anthracite oal strike, the action I took
as of precisely the kind which Presi
dent Wilson now says the law should
trial., obligatory In all rlmllar cases In
the- future, Hut Mr. Wilson himself ad
nilts that his own action was so bad
that It ought never to be repeated, for
he has assured the public that although
ongrejs has adjourned without doing
anything. It Is his Intention when Con
gress meets to see that It does something
to render It Impossible for another Pros
dent ever to repeat exactly what he tins
"In other words, I stood and stand by
my action as the proper action, consti
tuting the proper precedent for future
action. Mr. Wilson himself confesses
that his action was wrong nnd that the
precedent thereby set Is so evil thit leg.
lrlatlon must bo enacted rendering It lm
possible for another President ever to
repeat tho action."
Ilerlens ttncceaaful Arbitration.
The Colonel here reviewed the suc
cessful arbitration of the coal strike
fourteen years ago and of his threat to
run the mines by force. If need be. Then
"It fet the precedent for the course
that ought to be followed In all disputes
f this nature hereafter. Mr. Wilson, on
the contrary, has set a precedent which
he hlnuelf admits must never hereafter
be followed If Justice Is to be done. Mr.
Wilson had before lilm tho precedent I
had created, and he had ns Instruments
icady to hand the Arbitration Hoard and
the Interstate Commerce Commission,
with Its enlarged powers. Ilut he failed
to follow the precedent, or to use the
instruments which were ready to his
hand. Mr, Wilson, with all the agencies
f'f law subject tn his command. Ignored
them, destroyed tho principle of arbitra
tion In the settlement of Industrial dis
putes and put a premium on securing
this settlement hy threat and duress.
"All that he accomplished was the vio
lation of the principle In the present, In
the concrete case at Issue. The only law
he leeured established the precedent of
vloUtlon of tho principle. All that he
did Has to establish tho most evil of all
preudi nts for a democracy, the prece
dint ci violating a principle under the
dtireis of threat and menace, ft Is n
precedent which will return to plague us
throughout all future time whenever we

ONLY PERISCOPE SHOWED
White Star Skipper Says Scan
dinavian Boat Altered Course
as If Being Pursued.-
Fears for the safety of the steamship
llelllg Olav of the Scandinavian-American
Line, aroused- yesterday morning by
the -report of Capt. J. J. Jones of the
White Star liner Uovlc that he had seen
a submarine In pursuit of her, were
allayed later In the "day whcn'the'agcnU
of the Scandinavian-American Line re
ceived a mcssago from the Danish ves
sel. It was the usual midday com
munication giving' her location. No'men
tlon of submarines was contained In It.
Capt. Junes, whose vessel arrived from
Manchester at 6 o'clock, related to the
pilot as the Hovic came up the harbor
that he had sighted the periscope of the
submarine about :30 Friday morning.
Through his marine glasses, ho said, he
reassured himself about the type of the
vessel. That It was In pursuit of the
Hellig Olav was indicated, ho said, by
two sudden swerves In the course of tho
Danish liner. Apparently she was try
ing to zigzag- out. of the range of tho
submarine's torpedoes, according to the
narrative of the Uovic's commander.
Reports to A'HTal Attache.
He repented his story nftcrwnrd In
the White Star offices. So tlrm was ..o
In his belief that he was called to the
office of Capt. Cluy Haunt, llrltlsh Naval
Attache, to whom he repeated his story.
Credence attached to Capt. Jones's re
port becauso In the region he gave the
l"-S3 last Sunday sent five vessels to the
bottom. The submersible when sighted by
Capt. Jones wa.s within sixty miles of
However, despite the fullest faith In
the Integrity of the liovlc's commander,
doubt ns to tho pursuit of the Hellig
Olav became more pronounced as the
day wore on. These were some of tho
reasons why the report wa.s discredited:
The submarine pursued the vessel of
a neutral that carried no contraband.
Ily so doing It Ignored the llovlc. the
vessel of an enemy, and known to be
engaged In the shipment of munitions.
In the region mentioned by Capt.
Jones the dtstroyers of the United States
navy have been on patrol for tho entire
week. There have been no reports from
them of the presence of an underwater
British Warning Unrenewed.
Fully twenty-eight hours elapsed be
tween th time Capt. Jones said he saw
th Hellig Olav followed and the ves
sel's own report to Its agents. In that
report or In the one filed the day before,
three nnd n half hours nfter the alleged
hunt, nothing whs rnM by Capt. Holt
of the Hellig Olav of being forced out
of hlK course by a submailne.
Finally, the Hrllish Oovernment,
whose Naval Attache heard the Jones
report, made no effort to renew Its warn
ing to vessels about to pass the danger
spot. Twelve vessels departed from
Philadelphia yesterday, most of them
carrying munitions, nnd from New York
thrru vessels, nlso with munitions car
gots. pissed out the harbor.
"The weather was clear and It was
:3u In the morning," said Capt. Jones.
' It was about the position whero tho
British steamship Stratbd.-ne was sunk
last Sunday. There is not the slightest
doubt In my mind that what 1 saw was
a periscope. It was moving toward tho
Danish boat at a good rate of speed.
"We had passed the Hellig Olav when
the submarine made for her. We saw
the Hellig suddenly stop, veer off to the
eputhuntd nnd then swerve sharply to
the vnst, as though trying to zigzag
away from tho submarine."
Untie Heady for Attack.
The Hovic mounts .1 t.T gun. Capt.
Joins said that If the submarine had
menaced hltn nt all he would havo flted
on It. However, as no attempt w mad.)
to hnlt him he desisted from Intel Ter
ence. No doubt of the Identity of the Hellig
lav could have existed. She flew no
llHgs whn Capt. Jones sighted her. but
on" her sides slio had her niitne ps luted
'n large letters with two Danish ll.iga.
Halvor Jacobsen, agent for the Scandinavian-American
Line, sahl that not
once since tho beginning of the war has
she carried n contrubsnd cargo.
"It Is ridiculous to suppose that the
Hellig Ol.iv would flee a submarine"
said Mr. Jacobsen last night. "We have
been stopped by both sides ever since
the beginning of the war. If a sub
marine hove In sight Capt. Hoist cer
tainly would not have tried to get away.
There Is not the slightest doubt In my
mind that the Hellig Olav is safe. Her
message have been of the kind that arc
sent only when everything Is well."
The messnge received yesterday after
noon gave her location nt noon as 653
miles from Ambrose lightship. Mr.
Jacobsen sent a message to tho vessel's
captain after Capt. Jonos'n report. Up
to midnight ho had received no answer.
AEROS TO PATROL COAST
The North Carolina. Kqnlpped
With Fliers, Reaches Newport.
Newport, It. I Oct. 14. Three of the
reserve licet of tho destroyer force, the
Smith, Lamson and Monaghan, havo
arrived here, showing that the Navy De
partment evidently Intends to use these
boats In the rnval patrol of the coast.
The arrival this morning from the
South of the flying machine ship of the
Atlantic fleet, tho armored cruiser North
Carolina, leads to the belief that pos
sibly the aeroplanes on the ship are to
lie employed In the search problem, too.
The North Carolina Is to go to the Torts
mouth Navy Yard after stops at New
London and Hoston.
The torpedo training ship Montana
and tho Illrmlngh'am, flagship of the de

were nineteen destroyers In the bay to

"The question asked by one American

davits, were under fire from tho Ger
man submarine and the Stephano was
actually hit by a solid shot. The State
Department now has received an affi
davit which Capt. Smith of tho Stephano
made to the Hrltlsh consulate In New
York, together with other statements
from civilians nnd United States naval
officers which give u fairly clear Idea
of what actually happened.
Three Shots In All.
It appears that the U-53 fired tho
first solid shot, according to the evidence,
from a considerable distance and that
the shot either came very close to tho
bow of the vessel or actually struck
It. On this point there Is divergence of
opinion. The shot .was the first Intima
tion passengers or yew had of the
proximity of a hostlw submarine. Al
most Immediately afterward another
shot was heard, followed later by a
third. The two latter shota went wide
of the ship. Hy that time the Stephano
had cuccetded In communicating Its
readiness to surrender and had como to
a stop. The passengers and crew wero
ordered to take to the boats.
Tho U-S3 then left the scene nnd
went off nbaut four miles to nttack the
Dutch ship HlommersdIJk. It returned
later to find that the passcngH and
crow of tho Stephano had taken to the
bolts nnd wero being ssslsted by Lieut
David C. llanrahan of the United States
destroyer Kalch. Several of the sub
marino crew went aboard the Stephano,
opened the water cocks and the ship
Destroyer Batch Stood Clear.
Th reason for the timely presence of
tho destroyer Hatch on the scene was
that n "3 O S"call had been received from
another hlp In the same vicinity. The
stories about Lieut-Commander Hanra
linn putting his ship between the Ste
phano and the U-53 and protecting the
departure of the American passengers
from tho submarine's fire nre said au
thoritatively to be without foundation.
T'.ie Hatch remained nt some distance
fiom te suphuno until the submarine
went off In pursuance rf Iih attack on
The fact seems established beyond
doubt that three solid shots wero nrcd
at the Stephano nhllo th passengers
were on boatd. This explains why the
passengers and crew stated they had
been forced to abandon their xhlp "under
lire'' from the Herman submarine In
their message tn Secretary- Daniels.
Secretary Lansing Is understood to
be particularly concerned over the re
ports of the three solid shots fired by
the submarine, whether they were warn
ing shuts or were Intended to cripple
Too Far for" Blank Skat.
The fact thsH the tint shot fired was
a solid shot Is not regarded ns conclu
sive proof that It was not Intended for
i warning shot arross the ship' bow,
T). submarine tired from a range of
about two mil'' and In these circum
stances a warning could hardly huvu
!-!! git en a blank shot. Hut tho
reason which prompud tho U-f.3 to
continue tiring Is puzzling to officials.
One theory Is that the Stephano under
way uu utiaotv to n )i quickly en ugh
utnl that this angered the submarlno
commander and prompted him to en
dt.nor to cripple her .it oner. It Is
suggested that he thought she meant to
scupe and was tuklng me.m.s to prevent
It. If this proves true tho case takes
on a rather rertous a)ect.
Hut the fact that the last two shots
Hied wjfnt wide of the mark Indicates to
some officials that they wire also warn
ing shot to bring the ship to a stop
without damaging her. Much depends
on whut were the Intentions of the sub
marine commander lu continuing tiring
after the first shot hit the Mephnno or
came so close to her that tho passengers
Indicted sho was hit. Tills Is what the
United States desires to know.

DULG.VR TIimiST FAILS
Attempt Is Made to Cross tho
Danube for Invasion, but
Iioats Are Sunk.
London, Oct. 14. Rumania Is to have
help from the Allies to save her from the
fate of Hetglum nnd Serbia. Large Rus
sian rcenforcements arc expected to ar
rive In Rumtitiln and French staff otllccrs
nre to go to Hucharest to direct the new
campaign. Oen. Herthclot. a celebrated
strategist. Is to be In full charge. King
Ferdinand of Rumania will command the
Russo-Rumanlan armies, according to a
wireless despatch from Hucharest.
Without waiting for this nld Humanla
to-day struck back at Von Falkenhayn's
victorious army that Is hammering at
he.1 northern frontier. On her southern
frontier the new menace of a Hulgar In
vasion across the Danube was beaten
b-ck, nnd the same fate met an attack
Von Mackcnsen directed against the Ru
manians In tho Dobrudja. On the west
ern frontier, In northern Transylvania.,
Rumanian resistance li stiffening,
Bnlarar Effort frustrated.
To-day's Rumanian statement docs not
say where the Hulgars attempted the
crossing of tho Danube for an invasion.
They tried to cross In boats, not on a
pontoon bridge, ns the Rumanians
crossed. The boats were sunk, tho state
ment says. The Hulgar attempt Is de
scribed as follows :
There was a cannonade nnd an ex
change of Infantry tire all along tho
Danube. At several places we sank
vessels with llulgarlan troops on lard
which vveic approaching our bank.
To-day's Uulgarlan statement makes
no mention of tho apparently unsuc
cessful attempt at Invnslon of Rumania,
but says Rumanian artillery shelled tho
southern (llulgarlan) bank of tho Dan
ube "at several places without success."
llulgarlan guns caused "excessive con
flagrations" at Kaufat, In western Hu
manla. on the Danube, and silenced Ru
manian guns opposite the llulgarlan for
tress of Lorn or Lnm-Palauka, twenty
live miles southeast of Kulafat.
Island Used for Thrust.
' The Danube forms a loop here, with
Kalafat at the western. Lom-Patanka
at the eastern end. Vldln, a llulgarlan
fortified town.'ls opposite Kalafat, and
between them. In the Danube, Is tho
Island of Malakalafat. Tho Hulgars oc
cupied this Island a forttiixht ago and

The nutu Is unsatisfactory In every
respect from the State Department's
point of view. Tho Ktitcnte Allies
maintain their previous position more
positively than before tho President's

sharp words of tho President's note
nnd the mw.iltrd warning that the
I'nltcd States could no longer tolerate
the wrongs to which Its citizens wero
being subjecird nre ignored.
The Joint note Is devoted to a refusal
to yldd the prlnclplo and to contesting
every legal argument advanced by the
American note. The only consolation for
the United States Is found In the polite

A iiierlcnii Concession,
Thero Is no ofticlal Intimation to-day
of how Secretary Lansing takes the flat
refusal of thu Ilntentc Allies to yield
this point to the United States. The

This communication, yielding an Im

of It came to-day through Its mention

United States declared the Allies had
been guilty of "lawless practices" In
their mall censorship mcthous and that
"only a radical change, restoring to the
United States Its full rights, a.s a neutral

It Is ni.ilntnlned by tho Allies lu their
