vigilance and trial, and the Southern
white man's pride of position and the

War Department will not offend in
these things by placing negroes at
South Carolina camps. Should they
send the black drafted men into this
State, it is my hope that they place
them in separate camps for training.
As the press dispatches of this morn

that the Secretary of War finally will

SAW SUBMARINE BATTLE
Ship Captain Tells How British Sank
An Atlantic Port, Aug. 27.-The de
struction of a German submarine with
all hands by a British submarine in
the Atlantic ocean was described here
today by the captain of a British
steamer which was torpedoed by the
enemy submersible. The trader, which
was attacked on a voyage from this
country to a British port, returned
here after being repaired abroad.
According to the captain, the com
mander of the German submersible
attacked the British merchantman by
firing his deck guns when the torpedo
failed to send her to the bottom. The
trader's crew, who had taken to the
open boats, witnessed the arrival of
the British submarine and its attack
on the German U-boat, which was
broken in two and sunk by a torpedo
from the British undersea craft.
