I XV PLANNED DESTRUCTION
or American Ammunition ships-ile
Says Belongs to (?orin. Army.
Now York, Oct. 25.-Robert Pay,
a lieutenant ot* the Kith Saxony in
fantry, admitted to-day that ho carno
here last April, through an arrange
ment with the Connan secret ser
vice, for the purpose of blowing up
or delaying steamers sailing from
this country with arms and ammuni- ,
tion for the allies.
Fay declared, however, that while
here ho had acted independently ot
the (?orinan embassy, or other Cer
n?an agents here. Ile added that he
had told Capt. von Papen, military
attache, and Capt. Boy-Ed, naval at
tache of the Connan embassy, of his
plans, bul said that both told him
not to interfere with steamers sail
ing from American ports or Anieri- ,
can ammunition plants.
Pay and his brother-in-law, Wal-1
ter L. Scholz, wore arraigned at
Weehawken earlier in the day on
charges of conspiracy, and wore held
without bail for an examin?t ion to- i
morrow. Kay and Scholz were arrest
ed by New York and Now Jersey de
tectives near Grantward, N. J., late!
Sunday while the two mon were ex
perimenting with explosives.
Paul Daeche, of Jersey City, was j
arrested at his home early to-day. ;
and was also arraigned, charged with
conspiracy and hold without bail. De-1
tectives said, however that Daeche
had given them much valuable infor
mation, and they expected him to be
an important witness in the case.
Fay said that while serving in the
field with the German army he in
vented a device for blowing up ships.
He explained that he made the de
vice after the French artillery, espe
cially the 75-milllmeter guns, hud
bothered his regiment a great deal.
Police announced that Fay had
made a complete confession of his ac
tivities during his stay her?, and
Inter the prisoner gave out a stato
nieit to the newspapers. In that he
s .id: "My only object when 1 came
to this country was to interfere with
the enormous shipments of artillery
ammunition to tho allies. Hoing a
manufacturer myself, and knowing
that any ordinary damage that may
be done to a factory may be repaired
within a few hours, 1 decided it was
useless to bother with ammunition
plants. Therefore, the intimations
that I have been connected willi vari
ous explosions or accidents that have
occurred In such plants In the Uni
ted Stales is entirely wrong."
Pay said that he and Scholz had
conducted experiments with his mine
device along the Hudson river, bul
declared thal Daeche was in no way
implicated. Ile said that he vv;is a
German and denied that his father
had been an Englishman. Pay said
he was well supplied with money
when he arrived here, and. therefore,
was able to act on his own responsi
"When the Gorman secret service
arranged for my trip to the United
States they loft tho advisability of
using my device to the judgment of
Cern?an militar) and naval authori
ties In this country." said Fay. "Hot h
Capt. von Paiion and Capt. Boy-Ed
strongly refused to make any use of
my device in this country, but said
that Its use in Canada would depend
Lieut. Fay explained how he plan
ned to attach mines carrying his de
vice to the sterns of ammunition
laden vessels sailing from New York.
By properly arranging the device, he
calculated, the mine would bo ex
ploded when the steamer was about
half a day out. Ho declined to say
whether he had attempted to attach
min* :, to any ships in this harbor, but
declared he had not attached loaded
