SUBSfiA'UNER
IDEA BORN HRE

ALFRED L-OHMANN
In the brain of Herr Lohmann was
born the daring idea of building sub
marine merchantmen of Deutsch
land type. He personally organ
ized and founded the German Ocean
Shipping company, owner of the pio
neer subsea liner, and is directing the
organization of a submarine fleet.

CASEMENT APPEAL OUSTED
London, July 18. Roger Case
ment's appeal from his conviction on
the charge of high treason, for which
he was sentenced to death, was to
day dismissed.
Unless the crown commutes the
death sentence Casement will die on
the gallows.
o o
Monticello, N. Y. What feminine
warriors at the Woman's Military
training camp mistook for nerce
cries of some man and woman
eating wild animal, turned out to be
merely those of a bullfrog. Whole
rap was awakened.
WHAT'S SAUCE FOR THE GOOSE
ISN'T SAUCE FOR THE GANDER
When congress make? an appro
priation of $10,000 for a new post
office in some little prairie city the
Chicago Daily Tribune cries loudly:
"Pork! Pork!" But when in turn con
gress moves to favor an appropria
tion of $4,250,000 for the purchase
of a site of a new West Side post
office in Chicago, as it did yesterday,
the Tribune bestows lengthy praise
upon the representatives who favor
the appropriation.
Perhaps what is sauce for the
goose is not sauce for the gander;
pork may sometimes, it seems,
change its flesh.
Postal authorities and business
men agree that Chicago sadly needs
a West Side postoffice, and the busi
ness men say that $4,250,000 for a
site is not half enough.
There are also some business men
right in this town who think that if
Chicago can. be dissasisfied with
$4,250,000 as ah amount too small
with which. to buy a new postoffice
site, that Squeedunk should not be
begrudged $10,000 to build its "hull
gosh blamed postoffice."
In the country town the postoffice
is a social institution, as well as a
business necessity and Uncle Sam is
doing something for the good of his
country's society when he gives the
little city a nice federal building.

DEUTSCHLAND STILL AT PIER
SAILING TIME SECRET
Baltimore, Md., July 18. German
super-submarine Deutschland was
still at her pier here early today. As
far as could be learned, though, she
intends to dash for the Virginia capes
tonight.
One of the Germans connected
with her venture announced early to
day that she had gone. A statement
from A. Schumacher & Co.'s office,
however, was that "anything we tell
you about the leaving time will be
a lie."
