NO. 36.WEATHEI-Thulddswm WASHINGTON. D. C.. FRIDAY. AUGUST S1L 1917. TWO OEN'I
VOTE DATE SET,
- Senate Decides to Dispose
of Revenue Measure
At last a date has been set for vot
ME upon the great M.60000.00 war
revenue bill. It must be finally dis
peed of by the Senate, Monday, Sep
. Unaninous consent to fix the date
was reached late yesterday afternoon.
The fact that the "conservatives"
held a cloture petition with fifty
seven names affixed to it convinced
the "radicals'' that it would be use
less to fight for further time. Had
the agreement not been reached, the
cloture petition would undoubtedly
have been passed today by two-thirds
of the Senate. and debate brought
to a close.
The agreement stipulates that the
war profits section and all ameid
ment.i must be disposed of by 6 p. Zn..
Wednesday. September 5. the Ineme
tax section by 4 p. m. Friday. Septem
bar 7. and the whole hill by 4 p. nh..
Monday. September 10. The cloture
petition was withdrawn.

This was the declaration yesterday

the North Atlantic and the English

to the reports of the success of our
flotillas published in The Washington
Herald poe weeks ago. Our flotillas
are being constantly increased, and he
predicts that the submarine toll will
be steadily reduced from now on.
No submarines have yet been cap
tured. But there is evidence that can
not be neglected to show that they
have been sunk. Means of protection
have been devised whereby the lose of
vessels has been reduced to one-half
of I per cent of those so protected.

every mile of ths area in which sub
marines are active.
They have driven the sea wolves far
out into the open sea. They are no
longer permitted to lurk about the
close-drawn lines of trade. They can
attack only scattered ships.
"Depth Charge" Fatal.
They are compelled to remain
most of the time under water. Even
there they are not safe. The "depth
charge" has stripped them of this
protection. Once sighted, lurking
submeged a submarine is as good
as gone. A destroyer can be, di
rected over the spot where she lies
and a depth charge dropped.
The only reason why the Navy
Department has not made a more
definite statement on the anti-sub
marine campaign is that "Fritz" has
learned to simulate losses. It has
been learned that when attacked a
submarine will now emit a large
volume of oil, and even cast adrift
some old planking or other debris,
carried for the purpose. in order to
make the attacker believe he has
scored a fatal hit.

Mrs. Anderson wore a blue tail

unrest she displayed was when she
continually twisted her white

"I am somewhat sorry I made
this exposure," she told the corn
mittee. "I do not like to be in

I felt it my duty."
In so low a voice that the three
members of the subcommittee
strained their ears to hear, she re
peated the charges she made in the
letter to Senator Poindexter.

It was said later that her testimony
