Reaches Baltimore Sunday
MAIL IN HER CARGO
Epoch-3larking Event in History of
'1'rainasportation. Undersea ('raft
Passed Blockading Sqiuadrons and
Steered ('lear of Floating Mines.
Baltimore, Mid., July 9.-The world's
first submarine merchantman, the
German underwater liner )eutsch
land, anchored below Baltimore to
night after coming safely across the
Atlantic, passing the allied blockad
ing squadrons and eluding enemy
cruisers watching for her off the
American coast. She carries mail and
a cargo of 750 tons of costly chemi
cals and dyestuLts and is to carry
back home a similar amount of nickel
and crude rubber sorely needed. by
the German army,
Sixteen lays out from B remer
haven to lBaltimore, the su bmarine
reached the Virginia capes at 1:15
o'clock this morning, passing in on
the surface covered by darkness
which selled over the entrance of the
bay with the setting of the moon.
Once inside the visitor threw caution
aside and began shrieking his siren,
signaling a pilot and at the same time
attracting the attention of the tug
1'homas F. 'i'Imnmins which had been
waiting in the lower bay for nearly
two weeks to greet the Deutschland
and convoy her into port.
Three hours later the big sub
marine started up the bay with the
German merchant flag flying under
her own power, piloted by Capt. Fred
erick D. Cocke of the Virginia Pilot's
association and convoyed by the Tim
mins. She was making more than 12
knots an hour and could have docked
in Baltimore tonight, but arrange
ments had been made for receiving
her with formal ceremonies tomor
row and her captain was ordered to
wait in the lower barbor. He and
his crew of 29 men remained aboard
,Sent No Notice.
Regarding his vessel as a mer
chantman subject to no unusual re
strictions, the skipper, whose name is
said to be Capt. Kairig, went up to
Chesapeake without waiting to notify
local customs and quarantine ollicers
of his presence. lie was live hours
away before Norman lamilton, col
lector of Norfolk-Neivport News,
heard the news and started on his
trail aboard the coast guard cutter
Onondaga. At last reports tonight
the cutter had not approached the
submarine, and it is understood that
she merely was ordered out to keep
tihe strange craft under surveillance
as a neutrality precaution. Quaran
tIne and port regulations will be coo
Uille'd w ithi when t he vessel mioves upI
to her dock tomorrow.

In German qtuarters here the news
of the suibmarine's arrival was hailed
With th le keenest del ight. T1hose who

as she was lue to arrive about the

The undersea liner, ir. Iiilken un
derstanuds, is about 315 feet long and
30 feet beam and is propelled by two
great i)einel oil engines. She is as
large if not larger than any of the
German naval submarines. As to de
tails of her construction, Mr. Iilken
sa-.. ' ._ lacking in Int'ormation.
"Mlost of the information that was
sent to me," he said, "is probably
carefully tucked away In a pigeon
hole of the British admiralty ofice,
but I don't care now. The .Deutsch

Mr! iilken is an American and his
firm has been in business here oper

When the )eutschland will return,
or whether it is planned to have her

Ililken refused to discuss.

"This project was conceived," lie
said, "by German commercial interests
who wanted to reopen trade with the
United States. It is a purely com
mercial proposition and that is all
there is to it.'
If present plans are carried out, the
public will not be allowed to inspect
the undersea wonder, nor will any
body except tie federal atlhorities be l
allowed te hoard her.
The pier of the Eastern Forwarding
