The party of American Congress
men, members of which had narrow
escapes from death or injury when
they came under German machine
cun fire recently while visiting the
trenches on the British front in France
returned home on an American
steamer which arrived last Monday.
The Germans, it appears, noticed
the unusual activity in the British!
trenches caused by the visit of the
Congressmen, and thinking a raid
was about to begin, opened fire with
"a battery of machine guns. Some of
the Congressmen, who were exposed
to the. rain of bullets, promptly sought
the shelter of the dugouts.
The party included Representatives
Clarence C. Dill, John F. Miller and
Albert Johnson, of Washington; Ed
ward B. Taylor and Chas. B. Timber
lake, of Colorado; Dan. V. Stephens,
of Nebraska; Wm. S. Goodwin, of
Arkansas, and former Representa
tives Stout, of Mon'.ara and Freder

The followjng details are given of
the destruction of the German U-boat
last week by an American destroyer:
The explosive had disabled the
U-boat and forced it down, bumping
along the bottom of the sea and strik
ing terror to the hearts of the crew.
Then the commander, in order to
lighten her, emptied the tanks. To
the great delight of the crew, the
U-boat responded and arose to the
surface with such a rush that some of
the Germans were thrown about and
The U-boat appeared on the surface
within several hundred feet of an
American destroyer. The submarine's
hatch flew open and the Germans
scrambled out of the conning tower
coatless and shoeless ready to swim
for it. They lined up along the nar
row deck with hands in the air shout
The U-boat remained stationary
and the destroyer moved close up
and heaved a line which the Germans
made fast. This was no sooner done
than it became apparent that the Ger
mans had succeeded in opening the
sea cocks, for the submarine began to
settle. As she did so the Germans
leaped into the water and swam to
ward the' destroyer. Some of the
American sailors jumped into the sea
to rescue the injured.
As the last German was lifted on
board the destroyer, the hawser
attached to the U-boat parted under
the strain and the U-boat went down.
All the Germans were given steam
ing hot coffee and dry clothing and
were otherwise made comfortable
for the run to the base. But ono of
their number, a machinist, had suf
fered greatly from shock and expos
ure and died on the way. He was
buried with full naval honors from
the deck of the destroyer, the Ameri
can commander officiating at what
was the first funeral service so far
held in this war on an American destroyer.
When the destroyer reached her
base the prisoners wero almost en-
tirely.clad in American naval outfits.
They appeared especially fond of the
American Jshoes, which wero the
first they had ever worn.

Government operation of tho rail
roads during the war looms as an in
creasing possibility in the minds of
officials, who, with the railroad heads,
are trying to work out a plan for re
lief of the eastern traffic situation.
Apparently it is conceded that if the
pooling system to be undertaking by
the railroads themselves does not
solve the problem, tho government
will take over tho operation of the
roads as one system.
The pooling plan calls for a joint
use of tracks, locomotives, cars and
employes in the congested centers.
