Britain's Losses Over 4,000.
London, June 3.-The latest re
ports from the British fleet, from
neutral vessels which witnessed
parts of the great naval battle in the
North Sea and from survivors, cause
the British public to believe that t!ie
engagement was not so near a de
feat as It first appeared and In no
wiso a disaster. The British losses,
with all the craft engaged account
ed for. were three battle cruisers,
three cruisers and eight destroyers.
The German losses are believed to
have been about Hie same number of
shills, although a much less aggre
gate of tonnage.
British naval experts maintain
that Great Britain continues to hold
the supremacy of the sea by a safe
margin, and that her enormous navy
could better afford the losses it suf
fered than could the smaller Ger
man esta'blishment. The first re
ports of the heavy loss of life, un
happily, have not 'been revised.
Great Britain mourns for more than
4,000 of her best seamen, and the
whole nation is oppressed with sad
ness, which is reflected in tho faces
of all the people of 'London.
There were some 6,000 men on
the ships which sank, and only a few
hundred have been saved. The hor
rors of modern naval warfare far
exceeding those when wooden ships
fought and continued to float even
when they ceased to he fighting
units, were realized to their utmost.
From five of the largest ships which
went under, with a complement of
more than 4,000 men, only seven
junior officers and a few seamen

Ji?i?t Itritish Officers Lost.
London, June fi.-A total of 333
officers were killed in tho Jutland
battle, according to a list Issued hy
the admiralty to-day. This list shows
that practically all tho officors of
the cruisers Queen Mary, Invincible,
Indefatigable, Defense and Black
Prince, and from tho destroyers Tip

All tho officers except ono from tho

officors were killed arid 22 wounded.

from Columbia Theological Seminary.
(South Carolina,) and was licensed

tressing accident which caused the

"Rev. J. EJ, Fogartie, pastor of the
local Presbyterian church, died in
ibis city Thursday morning a*. 4
..'clock as the result of being struck
and run over by an automobile
driven by -Miss Gertrude Stephens
Wednesday afternoon. In the car at
the time with Miss Stephens were T.
D. Hale, agent for the 'Ford Automo
bile Company, who was teaching Miss
Stephens how to manage tho car,
and her father, Judge M. Stephens.
"The minister was crossing the
street on lils way lo tho poBt office
when the auto carno around the
corner. As to the exact actions of
Hov. Fogartie when he noticed tho
approach of the automobile, accounts
differ according to several onlookers.
Some say that he apparently became
excited and stepped backward two or
three steps and made an effort as if
to catch hold of the front of the car,
and, in so doing, placed himself di
rectly in front of the car, which
struck him with considerable force
and im ried him to thc ground in snell
a position that two of Hie wheels
passed over his body. Others are of
thc opinion that the minister stood
perfectly still, only raising' his hands
ns If warning the occupants of his
prOSOnc?, when the machino struck
him. All agree that heroic efforts
wore made by both 'Miss Stephens and
.Mr. Hale to stop tho car when tho
minister's presence was noticed. The
llrst to rench tho sc.eno were Lester
Wilson and L. C. Kelly, and to them
he spoke tho only words uttered. Ho
said, "Raise me up," three times, and
"I am dying" three timos. Dr. Cros
by was called, and all that was possi

avail. After a short time he was
carried to tho homo of 'Misses Nannie
