Captain of German Submarine Sajs!

Baltimore, July 10.?The German
submarine merchantman Deutschlani] 1
tonight was ready to discharge her
$1,000,000 cargo and take aboard for <
the return trip metal and rubber i
needed by the emperor's armies ana::
navy. The return merchandise is <
waiting on the dock and the time for ]
>eaving port will depend largely upon 1
plans for eluding vigilant enemy
cruisers expected to be waiting out- <
side the entrance of Chesapeake bay. ?'

1 ^ vessel, which lay moored to a carefully 1
screended pier guarded by a strong '
squad of Baltimore police. Capt. Paul i
Koenig, the skipper, had delivered '<
his papers to the North German <
Lloyd office, entered his vessel at the <
customs fceuse as a commerce carrier 1
and had presented to the German
?mbass> officially a package of corre- 1
spondence for Count von Bernstorff. i
One of Capt. Koenig's first acts af- 1
for ho mr>ve>f1 his shin un the harbof <
from quarantine early today was to
announce that the Deutschland was 1
but one of a fleet of mammoth sub- 1
xnersibles built or building for a regu- *
lar trans-Atlantic freight and mail
service. He said the next to corns
would be the Bremen and that sh3 \
might be looked for at some port ?
along the coast within eight weeks. ,
No Sign of 'Armament. }
* Anxious to establish promptly his <
Deaceful character and to forestall in- \
vestigation sought by diplomatic rep- ?
resentatives of the allied powers, the <
German captain submitted his craft j
to a thorough inspection by tile suri
veyor of the port and an agent of the
department of justice. These officers,
as well as the customs inspectors
and quarantine surgeons, agreed that
there was no sign of armament of any ,
description on board and that there ,
was no doubt in their minds about
the boat being entitled to the stat'-'
of an ordinary merchantman.
' (Neither Capt. Koenig nor agents of
the North German Lloyd line, to
whom the boat is consigned, evinced *
the slightest uneasiness over the suggestion
that there might be diplomatic
It was stated on the authority of
the captain that the only arms on
board were four automatic pistols belonging
to the officers and a sportsman's
rifle for firing rockets.
This was a busy day for the com- i
mander. At dawn quarantine officers 1
came aboard, received the bill of
health issued by the American consul
at Bremen and passed tt Deutschland
into port. Once safely alongside
liis dock, Capt. Koenig called his crew
ashore and posed with them for mov- (
ing picture and newspaper photographers.
Breaks Control of Sea.
Later at the office of the iNorth
German Llyod line he issued a typewritten
statement telling of the coming
of the other boats like the
Deutschland and asserting that his
voyage had broken the British, control
" ~ I ,
of the seas. At the same time he sub- j
mitted to an interview in which he de- j
scribed his 3.800 mile cruise from
Heligoland to Chesapeake bay. Ho
denied reports that he had been
chased off his course by enemy warships.
The captain asserted further
that his voyage had established the
fact that a submarine of the type of
the Deutschland could travel anywhere
that an ordinary vessel could
to, 13,000 miles, if necessary. He had
x.o fears, lie stated, of his ability to
elude enemies that might be waiting i
for him off the [Virginia capes wheo
he starts his return trip.
During nearly the entire voyage tc
America, said Capt. Koenig, the
Deutschland traveled on the surface.

"Before beginning our trip." said j
Capt. Koenig, "we had several wocks 1
Df practice in our vessel in the
sea.- We left Bremen without airy
ceremonies. Of course that was
necessary because the voyage was to
be kept secret.
"When we got to Heligoland, we
iecided that it was best to stay there
i little while.
"Coming through the North sea we ,
jaw hostile destroyers, cruisers and
patrol boats and submerged five
;imes. I do not think the enemy vessels
saw us. In the English chan- ;
iel we submerged six times in all
md in the Atlantic four, the last occasion
being when we sighted a United
Fruit company's steamer the day i
before our arrival at the capes.
"When we left Bremen we had 180 '
:ons of fuel oil aboard and there are
:iow 95 tons left in the banks. We
lad 20 tons of water when we started
md still have ten left."
Capt. Koenig was asked to explain 1
arhat devices the Deutschland had for
Ending her way under water and
How Submarine Sees.
"We have two," he said. "One is

the micropnone, me ouier a wuuuma

can hear submarine bell buoys six
cuiles away and the propellers of
?hips still further. By the tone of

"In this submarine we can do
everything under the surface that we
:an do oil it We cap drop anchor
while submerged, cruise below the
surface four days if necessary, or lie
still on the bottom until our food and
K'ater give out."
Capt. Koenig was asked how he
ind his men employed their time
while making the voyage.
"Well," said he, "we had phonographs.
They were a source of much
entertainment. 'No, we didn't have
i record of Tipperary'."
The captain seemed to enjoy the
reference to the English marching
Smoked and Bead.
"Of course," he continued, "all the
men smoked while they were oil
deck. It is forbidden to smoke below
deck in a submarine. We read a lot,
too. I have aboard a library of 40
volumes. There is Shakspere and
then I have some of Bret Harte, W.
W. Jacobs' sea tales, Mark Twain's
'Innocents Aboard' and Charles Dick- j
ens. Xo, I haven't got Jules Vernes't
'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under

to read that.

HO\EST *BIG BUSINESS''
HIS >0 REASON TO FEAR
Democratic Party, Wilson Explains,
is Friendly to Legitimate Enterprises.
Detroit. Mich., July 10.?President
Wilson urged peace reached by mu^?al
understanding rather than forco
ar.d defended the Democratic party
as a friend of business in speeches today
to enthusiastic Michigan audiences.
Detroit's streets were lined
with thousands of persons who shouted
greetings and waved American
flags at him wherever he appeared.
Tho han in which he sDoke to the
World's Salesmanship congress was
jammed, an audience estimated at 50,flOO
greeted him at the Ford motor
plant and tonight in Toledo another
throng listened to his brief platform
"Peace," was the shouted response
of the salesmanship audience when
the president asked them what they
desired when the present world strug
gles are at an end. And he added tnat
"permanent peace'' was his desire.
They Need It.
At a non-partisan luncheon in the
Detroit Athletic club the president
sprang to the defense of the Democrats.
A prominent Republican had
told him during the day that he had
been deriving pleasure from association
with Democrats, and the executive
recited the incident and declared
that he long had enjoyed the friend
ship and companionship of Republicans,
because, being a teacher, he
"would like to teach them somthing."
"We have been trying, some of us,
for a good many years to teach In
politics, as well as elsewhere, this
lesson, that we are all in the same
boat," he said. "We have common
interests, and it is our business to understand
and s?rve those common interests.
"T dare say that you nave noticed
that the same necessity to make a living
is imposed upon Democrats and
Republicans, and I dare say you are
ready to believe that Democrats are
just as willing to make a good living
as Republicans. Therefore, it seem?
to me logically to follow, though,
have been quoted as having no regard
for logic, that Democrats are naturally
as much interested in the business
prosperity of the (United States
as anybody else. So that if you be4-Vi
