New London, Conn., Nov. 17.?The!

her return voyage to German^ almost at
its outset early today, wht.. a con

vuynig lug, ljic i. WV.UU,
sunk with a crew of five men, was
thi? subject of federal investigation
this afternoon. !
* The United States inspectors of
steam vessels, headed by Capt. W. E.
,/ithy, heard, through witnesses, of
the conditions under which the submarine,
slipping out of the harbor in
; the darkness so that she might subj
merge in neutral waters before daybreak,
ran down the tug which was
acting as her protector off Race Rock,
just outside this port. The testimony
I came from Capt. Paul Koenig of th^
j Deutschland; from F. W. Krapohl, his
j chief officer, and from Hans Kleese. !
j his chief engineer. It was given in
' secret but it became known through
statements outside the chamber that:
the collision was an accident. 1
Survivors who would discuss the
i matter were agreed that it was due to
a combination of swing currents
which carried the tug off its course
and across the bow of the submarine
and to the darkness, which was to be
the Deutschland's medimu of safety,
but which instead prevented ready ,
| observation of the danger ahead. Capt. j
I Koenig would say only to question*1
"It's a terrible thing to lose those
good men. I feel it deeply. You,
must excuse me."
Bnt One Survivor.
Before the inspectors fix the blam?
for the loss of the Scott and its crew,
j they will hear the testimony of Capt.

Eastern Forwarding company, who
was the only survivor of the tug

rescued, almost exhausted, by the
crew of the tug Cassie, following behind.
Capt. Hindi was unconscious
after the accident and tonight was
, still so exhausted that it may be sev-'
eral days before he is able to testify.1
The Deutschland's return will b<.!

she sustained and not at all by

Examination of her bow today showec\
that three plates had been stove in to
a degree described by some as **a!

stem was twisted to starboard, but
the general structure of the submarine
j was said to be firmly in place, not-i

18o ASSOCIATIONS FOR FARM
LOANS IX THIS STATE
Columbia, Nov. 16.?About 135 farm
loan associations have been organized
in this state, looking towards the es-'
tabiishment of a farm loan bank in this
territory. The federal farm loan board
is expected to make its decision as to
locations on December 1. With 13o
associations already organized here,
and Columbia being thp center of the
district of Congressman Lever, who
was instrumental in setting the bill
through the national house of representatives,
it is felt that South Carolina
lias by far the best chance for
tne Dank to oe iocaiea in tins territory.
In Memory of Mrs. Lnlji Graliam.
The angel of death has visited the
home of Mr. Felix A. Graham and
"ken awav his d-'-ar beloved wife,
Mrs. Graham. She passed away calmly
and peacefully and has entered her ,
Mrs. Graham was a good woman so j
recognized to bo by all who knew j
her, thoroughly unselfish and eceed-!
ingly kind and thoughtful, and will be
sadly missed not only by the family
but by all who knew her.
Mrs. Graham died at her homp in
t^p Xew HoDe community on Wednesday
afternoon at 1 o'clock.
She leaves a devoted husband, thre:;
daughters and six sons and a host
of relatives and friends to mourn her
She was laid to rest at the Graham
family cemetery Thursday afternoon
at 2:30. the funeral service being conducted
by Rev. "W. A. Duckworth and
Rev. S. C. Ballentine, May God comfort
the hearts of the bereaved ones,
and may they be as true as Mrs. Graham
has been, and strive to meet

Bryan and The West.
We, among others of his former admirers,
thought that William J. B^j'an
had been very patriotic, to say
the least, in resigning from the pres
ident's cabinet early in the year in the
face of such grave situations as those
that confronted the state department
at that time.
IM the beginning of the presidential
campaign just closed some feared that
Mr. Bryan would be "found wanting''
in efforts for the democratic party.
But instead of that he stumped Nebraska
and other western states for
the party and the administration with
the result that those sections wherein
Mr. Bryan's voice is still heard and
lined themselves up in the
Democratic column. And, Mr. Bryan
is smiling and good-natured and his
attitude shows him & man too big to !
hold malice. He did his duty to his
While Mr. Bryan's efforts are largely
responsible for the West supporting
the administration it is hardly to
be believed that the high prices of
farm products and the almost un-l
heard of prosperity of that section has
not had its weight. The agricultural
interests of the West have probably
never seen sucn progress ana pros-,
perity as have been enjoyed under the
present administration. And, while
this prosperity is tangible, concrete
evidence of the administration's ability
to take care of the United States,
yet it took a man of the calibre of
William J. Bryan to bring these facts
home to the voters in euch a menner
as to make them realize fully just
how much they owed to the Democrats
for this almost unparalleled prosperity.
Bryan had a message ba?ed upon
facts, and he was good democrat
enough to deliver that message in his
oldtime, vigorous style.
