GALE PUTS SCORES .
OF LIVES IN PERIL
Fishermen in Small Boats Res
cued by Const Guard
Thrilling Episodes.
Sweeping suddenly down out of the
northeast, a gale yesterday Imperilled
the lives of scores of fishermen, driving
some of their boats ashore and lealrg
others helpless In the trough of the
heavy seas.
Six such small boat" called for the
help of the eoat guard station at Sandy
Hook, nnd another was saved by the
guards of the TakanaK.ee xlatlon north
of Long Itranch, N. .1. Some of the
rescues were maiked by thrilling ep
hodes. Thirty-three amateur fl-hermen were
aboard the motor boat .Mary H. Combs
of Jerey City when the storm broke.
The engine got out of older and the boat
was he'plcs, pe tlew distress signals
nnd the Sandy Hook guards el out In
their power boat to make the icscue, but
the eas drove the Combs ashore so
rapidly that before the coast guards
came up she grounded and the tiher
men waded thiough the i-urf to the
beach.
The steamer Calabria, outward bound,
stopped and put out lifeboats for the
rescue of five men from a launch which
was In distress off the Homer light. The
coast guards were on their way at the
time. The five tlxhermen weie trans,
ferred to the steam pilot boat ouflde
the bar and fent luck to New York.
The Sandy Hook guards then In turn
towed the Anna E. of New York, the
America of Shccpshead Hay nnd the
power boat Stout to safe anchorage
Inside the hook. Each of these bad
about twenty. five men aboard and each
was having trouble.
The last call. Just before darkness set
In, seemed the most urgent. The Mon.
mouth Heach. Sea Bright and Spenna.
cetll Cove stations In turn tried to get
their surf boats out to a launch which
was flying signals of distress off Sea
brlghti but they were unable to get be
yond the shore brrakeis. So word was
sent to the Sandy Honk guards under
(.'apt. Tillon to try It In their power boat.
They reached the boat, a small fishing
launch with four men aboard, at about
H o'clock and It was lu:IU o'clock be
fore they reached the station with the
tow. The fishermen were exhausted
and had to be attended by the life
guards. Capt. Fritz Hryant nnd eight men In
the one masted sloop Lucille were saved
by tho guards of the Takanassee station
after three hours of drifting In the storm
with the craft disabled. The fishermen
expected their boat would be smashed
against the fishing pier at Ixnnr Jirnnch
when the guards reached them and
passed them a line. The sloop then was
towed to safety.
It set out from Stapleton, Statcn
Island, at R:30 o'clock yesterday morn
Ins. The sloop's anchor parted soon
after the banks were reached nnd the
craft shipped water, putting the bat
teries out of commission. Capt. Bryant
and his crew praised the coast guard
men, saying they would have perished
If help had not come.

Desperate Hand to Hund Fight
ing Precedes Fall of
tlie Village.
Ijs'Po.s, Nov. (I. The Snmme and
Verdun were the scenes to-day of vic
tories for the Allies more notable than
any In a fortnight. In fighting that
I lasted all last night and most of to-day
the French on both fronts had great
success and the llrltlsh on the Soinme
nlso progressed.
(len. Koch's main blows, struck In
succession all day, were In the region
of I.o Tianslny, southeast of Ilapaume.
The capture of this strongly held nnd
well fortified village did not result, but
Its fall Is greatly hastened,
French Infantry dashed forward
against (lermnn positions along a four
mile front from l.es Hrufs east to Sallly,
then south along the western edge of
St. Pierre Vnast wood.
Push Toniird t.e Transloj.
Between Lea B'rufs and Sallly-Sallll-sel
the French lines were pushed for
ward from the south several hundred
yards Inward Ia Transloy despite strong
teslstance fioin the (ieriunit garrison.
Ent of Sallly the French stormed and
held the southern end of the old rjerman
fourth lire trench that defends l.e
Transloy, running from enst of Sallly
northwest In front of l.e Transloy
Almost all of the village of Sallll.el,
adjoining Sallly on the t-nutheast, was
tnken after more of the desperate hand
to hand lighting that took Sallly te
cently Then the French attack swung around
the St. Pierre Vnat wood, nearly a
square mllo In area and straight south
of Sallllsel. This wood, roughly a tri
angle, Is a very strong barrier to French
progress. Tho French attacked on three
sides, and penetrated strong trench sys
tems the Germans had dug on the edges
of the wood, which also constituted parts
of the old German fourth line,
j At the same time that the French
were conducting so successful an often
j sle on the Somme front they were fin
j Ishlng successfully the work they began
at Venlun on October 21. To-day they
added alt of Vnux village and all of the
' village of Damloup to the long list of
, strong, dearly liought positions, forts,
villages, bills, that they hive tetaken
from the Crown Prince In three weeks
i at n cost to them ridiculously small.
By to-day's operations the word Finis
I Is written on the Crown Prince's great
offensive. Vnux village and Damloup
fell easily, in a result of the strategy of
the first attack of October II The
Germans In them were In the same posi
tion as tlie Germans In Fort Vaux, un
der Piencli lire from three sides, pock
eted by the advance of October 2t. The
vIUircs could not be held.

the Germans, The Crown Prince ordered
It, the German statement says, because
the Fieni'h have been bombarding
French villages behind the Champagne
front that had not been abandoned by
the civilian population.
The French statement to-night tells
of the day's success as follows:
North of the Somme we made sev
eral successful attacks during the
course of the day, accomplishing a
series of appreciable advances between
the region south of I Transloy and
the district south of the St, Plerro
Vnast w d,
Between l.es Bo-ufs and Sallly-Sall-llsel
we pusheo our lines several bun
dled meters In the direction of l.e

captured a trench and coiuiuered the
greater part of the village of Sallllscl.
South of Ibis vilhlce we ntt.ipkpil frnm
! three sides at once the St Pierre Vaast
wood, which Is powerfully organized
by the enemy, and made an Imiwrtant
advance, capturing successively three
trenches which defended tho northern
horn of the wood and also taking the
whole line of the enemy's positions on
the southwestern outskirts.
Mnynnet la I'aed,
The fighting was particularly bitter
on that section of the front. German
counter attacks were brilliantly re
pulsed with the hand grenade nnd
bayonet.
In the course of these actions we
captured o22 prisoners, of whoin fif
teen were officers.
On the right bank of the Meusc the
artillery battle In the region of Douau

village of Vaux.
The afternoon statement said:
North of the Somme the enemy did
not resume bin attempt on our
trenches In St. Plerre.Vaast wood.
East of Fort Vaux our troops, ex
tending their progress, occupied dur
ing the night the village of Damloup,
leaking some prisoners.
The llrltlsh statement to-night aays:
Wo attacked at several points along
the front, making some progresa and
taking a few prisoners. On our ex
treme right we cleared a pocket of
Germans.

Devlin addresses President Wilson as
follows:
. "I am an American citizen who with
the others have Just landed at a place
I safe from submarines. I have Jut had
j a narrow escape from death by murder
on the high seas. I have seen six of my
ipattners, also Americans, go to their
deaths without warning, without n
, chance to save themselves, through the
deliberate act of a foreign Power that
has wilfully broken Its solemn promise
made to you not to sink merchant ships
without warning them and Insuring- Un
safely of the lives of the people nboard. I
"We want to know what you are I
going to do. You keep telling us ou

and will not surfer American honor to '

Americans lying In the hospital, unable ,
to move, because of their surferlngs In
an open boat In a stormy sea. '
I Suit Huhmsrlnr'a I'erlseiipe.
"We left for America last Thursday
a week. It was so tough all one day
taat we could make only twenty miles.
On Saturday It was as bad as ever.
1 Huge seas swept the deck'. At half-past
S In the afternoon we were doA'ii In our
bunks talking. Suddenly we felt an ex
plosion, the sensation of a bursting,
; boiler. We learned afterward that It ,
' was the boiler, exploded by the torpedo.
' We slipped on lifebelts nnd. running nn
, deck, heard that we had been attacked
' by a submarine.
"The Marina was sttuck ainldsiilps,
, There was not the least excitement nnd !
little hurry, From a boat 1 noticed the
periscope of tho submarine. We were
then thirty feet from the ship. The
Jierlscupe moved slowly around to the,
I port side, where ti second torpedo was
tired Into her. The Marina Immedlately
broke In halves, the bow and stern ris
ing toward the centre, remaining In a i
curious position. One of my partners
took out tils watch to see how- long the
i-econil torpedo would take to finish bet
"The captain and the men Hill in the
bblp. Including the Mx Americans, ran
aft. The secon-J explosion was m un
expected that It took them completely
by surprise. They bad time only to
thtow a life taft. Inn they could not
reach the raft The eh',-1 sank and the ,
captain and (be others, including the elx 1

"We never saw the captain, the first
mate or the second mate or any of tlie!
others, including the six Americano, who
were in the ship again after she bad i
, been struck aftnln without warning, Mr.

easy It Is to defy the United State of

"It was daik and verv cold and wet. I

we were s.ire?
"She left us In r.nen boats on a stormy

j t!-ht that we dared not move all night
We kept wltlilu a mile of the place where
the ship went down In the hope of com
ing upon some men alive In the water,
but It waa no use.
"For twenty-seven and a half hours
we were tomed about, frozen to the
bone, In Imminent danger of our boats
capsizing. Our only shelter was sail
cloth. We shipped a good deal of water.
Early Sunday morning wo sighted a

John J. Wynne.
CALL CIRCULARS INSULT
Names of 110 Minor Appoin
tees of President Listed as
"Unit" for Votes.
How a secret eleventh hour expedient
of the Democratic managers to Influence
the votes of Catholics took form and
then collapsed from the resentment of
the Catholics themselves wns told last
night by the Itcv. John J. Wynne of St.

Catholic Knriicloimrtltn, director of the
Apostleshlp of Prayer, the largest Catho

editor of .Imrrtrn, tho official organ of
tho Jesuits In this country.
it developed from his story that while
President Wilson was rebuking Jeremiah
O'l.cary the President's political lieu
tenants were completing well laid plnns
for a play to other Irish Catholics
throughout the ('tilled States through a
series of circulate. Within a few days
the circulars began going out by thou
sands, appealing for votes for Wilson
and listing nbout 1 1 Catholic appoint
ments, mostly minor ones, that Wilson
had made while In olllce.
Considered ns Insult.
Father Wynne asserted last night that
the Catholics regal ded this ns a palpa
b.e attempt to brltie them with the nr
Burnetii : Give me jour vote and I will
give you olllces. He said members- of his
faith all mer the country were Intensely
Indignant nt what they considered nn
insult to their Integrity nnd Intelligence.
Catholics generally, he said, deplored
the Injection of religion Into politics
end the appeal to racial feelings. He
slid the etlort for this reason wns fore
doomed to failure, us It would do noth
ing but arouse the Indignation of those
who were approached on these grounds.
The series of circulars which Catho
lics have been receiving are three In
number and are over the signature of
Francis J, Hogati. "t Broadway, sec
retary of the "Catholics Fair Play Com

circulars said last night that they had
established beyond the possibility of a
denial that the circulars not only were
sanctioned by the Democratic commit
tee, but that they were published with
money rnntr'huted to the campaign fund
to elect Wilson.
Circulars Described.
Father Wynne described the circulars
as follows-
'The first circular was a mall eight
page pamphlet enumerating the number
of offices that bad been distributed
among Catholics during the Wilson Ad
ministration. Somo were holdovers
and others wero new appointments. Few

"One ni'ght get this circular by going
to the olllce of Mr. Hogati at 271 Hroad
waj. To tet the other two there was
a deal of mysterious formality to go
through. The whole proceeding hnd the
appearance of bring surreptitious and

for as a good Catholic and as a petson
who could be trusted. Then one was
authorized to receive the other two cir

by President Wilson, and denying that
the Piesldent ever had, ns reported, nil

Charles B. Hughes remained quietly
at the Hotel Astor. Ho Ih supremely
confident that by to-morrow night he
will know hn is the President-elect.
President Wilson ut Shadow l.nvvn

Vance McCormlck, Democratic na

faying Mr, Wilson was certain to ho

For carefully thought out reasons ho
I declined t" make a statement last night
