BRITISH STEAMER BLOWN UP j - I LONDON, Oct. 28.—The steamer Manchester Corn vessel was destroyed at a spot on the route of trans-At merce has been blown up by a mine oft the coast of Ii eland and the occurrence has caused a violent shock here as the lantic liners, showing that the Germans are now threaten ing in its most vulnerable point the commerce of the Brit ish islands. As to how the Germans could have laid the mines so far away from German territory no one can give an explanation but the loss of the steamer is sure to bring about greater vigilance. The occurrence may have the effect of injuring passenger traffic. DIRECT TORPEDOES FROM SHORE WASHINGTON, Oct. 28.—Experiments made by the American army have proven that it is Quite feasible foi an operator on the shore to direct torpedoes against hos tile ships by the radio system. It has been shown that even when the warships to be attacked are miles out to sea the torpedoes can be directed against them with practically unfailing accuracy. The experiments have recently been made and many believe that the result may have an immense effect on future wars if not on the one now proceeding. dutch lugger sunk AMSTERDAM, Oct. 28.—The Dutch lugger Vlaardin gen has been sunk oil the coast of Holland by a mine and all the members of the crew were lost. Ihe occurrence took place forty miles north of Ymuiden. No one can guess as to which nation was responsible. Some people are inclined to think that the British have begun to lay mines to interrupt the commerce of Holland as they have believed that cargoes consigned to Holland are ultimate ly shipped to Germany. Others believe, however, and they are the majority, that the Germans have mined those waters to prevent the shipping of farm produce from Holland to Britain. BERLIN ON POLISH FIGHT BERLIN, Oct. 28.—The Austrian and German of ficial reports of the lighting along the Vistula river and the San are to the effect that the Russian forces are very much superior numerically. In Berlin and \ ienna the great battle in that part of the field of war attracts as much attention as the fighting in France and Belgium and the result is regarded as being of equal importance. The German military authorities deny the reports of victory sent out from Petrograd but it is conceded that the allied Teuton forces have not succeeded in making a crossing of the \ istula and as long as that river sepaiates the German army from Warsaw it is believed that the task of the German troops is a very serious one. The ac counts given out by the war office are still very meagre authough what is told is of an optimistic nature in rela tion to the progress of the war both in the east and west. EMDEN SINKS JAP SHIP BERLIN, Oct. 28.—The German cruiser Emden has followed up her career of destruction by sinking the little Japanese steamer Kamegasaki Maru which was bound to Singapore. The German cruisers which are now dashing about the oceans seem to have no difficulty in securing all the coal required and this city is naturally jubilant because of he destructive work accomplished by them on the shipping of hostile nations.
