ARRIVAL OF BRITISH STEAM
SHIP TOTTENHAM PUTS STOP
TO MANY OPINIONS AS TO THE
OVERDUE VESSEL'S SAFETY.
Anxiety in many quarters over the
i probale fate of the British steamship
Tottenham came to an end yesterday
when the steamer arrived in port and
I reported all well. The Tottenham had
been out more than forty-five days
from Axim, West Africa, and as the
voyage usually consumes not more
; than thirty to thirty-five days, some
little anxiety -was being indulged in.
t the belief in some quarters eing that
the steamer, -which flies the British
S flag:, had become a prize of war of
one of the several German cruisers
which are at times reported activels'
" pursuing- the avocation of preying upon
- the British merchantmen. As stated,
; the Tottenham arrived safely yester-
day, and it was announced that the
only reason for her delay was the
- 'foul" condition of her bottom, which
-imade it impossible for the steamer to
:make her usual indicated speed at sea.
; The arrival of the Tottenham will
j furnish quite a lot of work to quite
ja lot of laborers at Pensacola for a
I little more than a week, and night and
'day work is in prospect. The steamer
; was berthed on the east side of Tar
ragona wharf, and there will discharge
upon cars her large cargo of mahog
any logs, which were loaded at Axim,
West Africa, and which will be sent
through the port of Pensacola to in
land points, the chief point of ship
ment, however, being Louisville, Ky.
It has been the usual custom to dump
cargoes of mahogany into the water,
and in this manner permitting the
vessel being discharged in about a
week, or less time than that. The
boom where these logs are rafted in,
ihowever, is filled with parts of the
several cargoes which were brought
. over on several other steamers, and
the newly-arrived cargo will be loaded
on cars for transportation to inland
points of destination.

willing to do what I have asked. My
coat, my water-soaked trousers,
which were little less than packages
of mud, are removed. My falling
shoes, my under-drawers and socks
follow the same route. My feet and
my wound make me suffer. I take
out my little pocket scissors. I cut
my shirt and flannel belt free of my
wound which I have not seen. It is
distressingly long, but nothing aston

ECONOMIC RESULTS OF THE WAR

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
London, Oct. 25. The economic re
sults of war have fallen heavily on the
women wage earners of .London, of
whom over 60,000 have been discharged
from employment since August first.
In the single district of Islington, 800
were discharged the past week by two
bottling works, which were forced to
close down because their supply of
bottles from Germany had been cut off.
While the ponderous machinery of
Queen Mary's Fund to give work to
women is slowly making ready, the
Society of American Women in Lon

tory of its own In this populous dis
Mrs. Joseph Wilcox Jenkins started
the factory. She walked one day into
a labor exchange where 600 women
were registered and asked for those
who could knit. They were then put
to work knitting by hand socks and
comforters, and paid on the union
scale of three pence an hour. This
insures a weekly wage of $2.50 for
forty hours' work.
Funds for running the factory are
obtained by the sale of socks, caps
and belts, which are knitted expressly
for the soldiers and sailors. The pur
chaser is expected to present the same
to the men at the front. Other funds
are obtained by contributions.
One of the employes In the American
factory is a woman with a husband
out of work, a paralyzed sister to care
for and seven children ranging in age
of three to sixteen years. Her eldest,
a girl, earns 60 cents a week In a
shop, and the war relief fund gives
seven shillings a week to the family.
Since getting a place in the American
factory, the mother has brought the
family income up to $4.85 a week.
A delicate girl of 22 years, a typist
out of work, is the sole support of her
mother and invalid sister. In addition
to her earnings, she gets five shillings
a week from the war relief fund, which
helps defray her weekly rent of $1.85.

New York, Oct. 25. The most im
portant insectional football game of the
present season will be played in the
Harvard stadium on Saturday, when
the Michigan and Harvard teams meet
for the first time in twenty-one years.
As representatives of the eastern and
western methods of attack and defense
the two elevens hold high rank in their
respective territories. Because of this
fact and the excellent records made by
both teams in the early games this
fall the result of the contest will be
awaited with more than usual inter
est by followers of football through
The personnel of the teams and
coaching staffs add greatly to the in

include players of national reputation
and the battle of gridiron strategy be

and Yost of Michigan should develop
some of the sensational plays for which
these football generals are noted. Har

spects the Crimson should be able to

In both offensive and defensive play.
Presuming that the elevens enter
the game equally strong the ultimate
victory may rest with the coaching
staffs and the system of attack which
they adopt. Both Haughton and Yost
are masters of football strategy and
because of the importance of the con
test some exceptionally brilliant plays
are likely to be uncovered. Coach Yost
has stated that he considers the Har

THE SCHOONER WILLIAM A
MORSE REACHED PORT FROM
SNAPPER BANKS, FLYING FLAG
AT HALF-MAST DIED SUDDEN
With her flag flying at half-mast,
the fishing smack William A. Morse, of
Boston, Mass., arrived in port yes
terday at 5 o'clock, and upon being
moored at Baylen street wharf, Cap
tain Angus Hynes reported the death.
last Friday on the snapper banks, of a
fisherman named William A. Good
win, 49 years of ago, of 52 East Cot
tage street, Roxbury, Mass. Captain
Hynes stated that Goodwin had died
suddenly, and immediately when he
learned that a death had occurred
aboard his smack, he hauled up an
chor at once, and sailed for the port
out of which he will fish in the fu
ture. Upon his vessel showing up In
port late in the afternoon yesterday,
a largo number along the waterfront
gathered on Baylen wharf, anxious to
learn what had occurred to cause the
vessel to fly her colors In the manner
Capt. Hynes stated that while fish
ing last Friday morning for red snap
pers, Goodwin appeared to be in as
good health as usual. He was as
sisting in the "catch," and during the
day a heavy rain came up, which gave
the fishermen a good ducking. Shortly
afterward, or about noon, Goodwin was
seized with a chilly sensation, and
went below. ITe continued to grow
worse, and In another hour, Capt.
Hynes, said, one of the crew called to
Mm that "Bill was dead." He could
not account for his death, unless it
was something of a congestive chill.
There was no disposition to bury
the unfortunate man at sea, the skip
per said, especially when it was known
that he had a wife and family in
Roxbury, Mass. Last night he sent a
night letter to the family which gave
them the news of Goodwin's death,
and pending arrival of orders, the re
mains will bo held here. Arrangements
will be made to inter the body by the
local association if the relatives do not

frcm the wharf to the Pou undertaking
