The submarine vhich appeared on the surface shortly after the French steamer Ville de La Ciotat was torpedoed off the island of , Crete, flew the Austrian flag, accord ing to a despatch to Reuter's Tele pram company from Malta yesterday. "It is learned from survivors," says the despatch, "that the vessel was off Crete, on her way from Japan for Marseilles, when at 10 o'clock on the morning of December 2 4, without the slightest warning, she was shaken by a terrific explosion following which a submarine appeared flying, the Aus trian flag.. There were on board 263 passengers, for the most part French, air ong whom were thirteen children prd a number of women, and thirteen officers and a crew of 168, the sailors thebeing chiefly Lascars. Women and Children Drowned. "Following the explosion, there was i a terrific inrush of water through a big hole in the stern; yet there was rir panic. The passengers gathered on Seek, showing the greatest coolness. Five lifeboats and two rafts were re lit sed. One of the boats, loaded with women and children, capsized and all in it were drowned, and another boat v. as ---?hed against" the steamer's side. ''Before the rest on board were able to leave, the vessel took her final plunge, to which the majority of the deaths were due. "Passengers say that a Dutch sf-eamer and a Greek steamer were in s?pht just previous to the torpedoing and, therefore, they believe that one of them sheltered the submarine. The steamers disappeared after the tor pedoing. Circled Around Survivors. The submarine, according to the , accounts of these passengers, re mained on the scene until the tor pedoed vessel sank and then circled around the lifeboats, calling in a jeer ing manner: . 'There's a British seamer behind you; she will pick you up.' "Two ' hours later the steamer Meroc picked up the survivors and brought them to Malta, although she had insufficient food and accommo dations for 238 extra passengers. "Among the lost were, six first class i and twenty-nine steerage passengers, including some Sengalese and twenty two white and twenty-three Lascar members of the crew. "One survivor relates that the sub marine picked up two persons strug gling in the water and placed them on a raft." PROVIDENCE EDITOR ANSWERS BOY-ED i Claims Official Standing Kept Captain Out of Prison Providence, R. I., Dec. 29 The "Providence Journal" yesterday sent a long wireless dispatch to Captain Karl Boy-Ed on the steamship Rot terdam. "Your farewell statement to the American people, insofar as it relates to the 'Providence Journal,' " the message said, "is a wilful and de liberate falsehood. Has the 'Provi dence Journal created a hysterical suspicion concerning the destruction of. American factories, the murder of ATnerican workmen, or the daily plots against the peace and safety of this government and its citizens, almost all of which acts have been fathered and financed from your own office? Every word of what the 'Journal' hast published with regard to your personal connection with these plots Tas been true, and nobody knows ft better than yourself." The message reverts to its charges that Captain Boy-Ed wrote the warn ing to American citizens not to take passage on the Lusitania, to attempts it asserts he made to embroil tho United States with Great Britain with false affidavits regarding shipments of supplies to naval vessels, and to the so-called "Huerta plot." The news paper declares also that an attempt was made to "bribe it into silence" by "the offer of a large sum of money for the formation of a press bureau." The message ends with this declara tion: " "You know well the reason why the United States government refused to - permit you to remain any longer in tms country. These reasons were not based on 'hysterical rumors' printed by the 'Providence Journal,' "Your attempt this morning to make the American people believo suci a ridiculous falsehood, is your farewell insult to a government and v . pieoa ma.!. jia,ve treated you with I unexampled patience In the face of evidence wmcn, had It not been fnv Lthe protection given you by your official standing, would have long ago placed you behind prison bars' MONGOLIA IV NEW YORK. f New York, Dec. 29 The steamship Mongolia, one of the four big cargo carriers purchased from the Pacific Mall Steamship company to be oper ates under, the American flasr by the Atlantic Transport line, arrived in NewH'York today after a voyage from San "Francisco around Cape H-rn.

Lewis Case Ledyard, one of the eleven former di rectors of ihe New Haven railroad on trial charged with conspiracy to mon opolize commerce, resumed his testi mony today in his own defense. He categorically denied that when he joined the New Haven board he had "any knowledge cf any plan or con spiracy on the part of the board or its predecessors ro monopolize com merce," that "anything- was said or done by any officer or director to give him grounds for beluvirf a conspir acy existed." tha he "consciously took part in any conspiracy, that he was ever "influenced by any desire to monoDoli:'" commerce.'' and that lie was "conscious at any Time of viola ting the laws of the United States.'i "No, never; I never did," were Mr Ledyard's emphatic replies to the questions put to him on the subject by his counsel, Delaneej. Nicoll. Under Cross-Hvaiiiination. The witness vas then placed under cross-examination by Frank -M-Swacker, of counsel for the govern ment. Mr. Swacker questioned him on his part in tl.e neg tiuiiohs for the sale of Boston and Maine rcock to the New Haven am' asked if it were not true that his sfudy of tno application of United States supremo court decisions to the sale was nun'U alter he had completed his ai range-. ients to sell the stock and to becomo a member of the New Haven board. Subject at Later Date. "Oh, I could not say that, " replied Ledyard. "I was familiar with the Northern Securities case-" He con ceded that the subject came up more particularly at a later date. "In reference to the legality of the Boston and Maine requisition, I ask you," said Mr. Swacker, "if you didn't have a conversation with Richard Olney in which you said it was "A fair chance to take," "I did not in any shape or form, di rect or inJirect," replied the witness. Grand Trunk Transa tlons. "After taking up the Grank Trunk Railway transactions, the federal at torney asked: "Didn't you make a statement that if the federal grand jury inquiry into the Grand Trunk went on, you would be indicted?" "I did not." "Didn't you make that statement when you went to see the attorney general in Washington?" "I did not, but I s e what you have got hold of." . Witness Excm rd. "I said to the atlorri y general when I talked t) him about the possibility of Mr. Meilen being indicted 'Well, you might just as well think of in dicting me-' t don't believe it ever entered thr mind of mortal man to in dict me until it entered yours, Mr. Swacker.' The witness was then excused. TO GREET NEW YEAR. Elks Make Preparations for Happy Party on Passing of 1915. The advent of 1915 Nvas a festive occasion with the New Britain lodge of Elks, when the first annual cabaret was held. In order not to slight the birth of 1916 the house committee of the lodge has made plans to hold a similar event this year, while, profiting by the exper ience gained last year, promises to far eclipse 1915's undertaking.

The actual damage to the building by fire was less than $100. There was considerable damage to machin ery and stock by water and a large quantity of stock was ruined by the flames. Superintendent Joseph F. Lamb stated today that he has not been unable as yet to determine the actual loss but he is positive that it will be greatly in excess of $8,000 as a large quantity of valuable cutlery is ruined.

They are the first of their race to take this test, although nearly 2,- 000 men of other nationalties have al ready been granted certificates. London, Dec. 29, 1:30 a. m. It is stated on excellent authority that the cabinet has virtually decided upon a modified form of conscription bill, to be introduced in the House of Com mons next week, giving the govern ment the necessary power, should it be found needful, to bring in single men and preserve Premier Asqulth's pledge to married men. With the reopening of Parliament only a week distant, there was another protracted session of the British cab inet today. It is said that no final decision is likely until after several further meetings of the premier and his advisers. Crowds Assemble. Sensational press reports of the cab inet situation aroused such an unusual public interest in today's assembling that the police were forced repeatedly to clear Downing street of the crowds. In the absence of any official state ments it is difficult to say exactly how serious is the present situation of the cabinet. The members certainly main tain the appearance of outward calm, which would hint that the difficulty is more a matter of decided on methods and details than a radical difference on basic principles. The press has again divided Itself into two groups which may most readily be defined In the American phrase as "for" and "against" the government. The latter group insists that the cabinet is hopelessly divided and must surely split on the situation created by the results of the Derby scheme, while the former group de clares that the alleged crisis is largely the product of excited agitation led by the Northcliffe press, and that such differences as exist in the cabinet are still capable of being merged into a common policy, if the task is not made impossible by outside agitators. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle ground between these two views. It is admitted that diffi culties have arisen in connection with the Derby figures that in certain parts of the country single men have not enrolled in such numbers as would warrant an impartial tribunal in de claring that only a negligible percent age remain outside. It may be confi dently stated that the cabinet as a whole accepts this fact. Asqulth's Pledge. Premier Asqulth's pledge; as stated specifically In an open letter to Earl Derby, stands good, and the cabinet is agreed it must be fulfilled in the letter and the spirit. For the govern ment knows full well that the pre miers unequivocal pledge to the mar ried men was the sole reason for the wholesale response of the married men. Up to the moment of that dee laration, the married men held back, but as scon as Mr. Asqulth's pledge was given .they stepped fonvard in numbers which were a surprise even to Lord Derby. Intermediate Step. mere Is a considerable body of opinion which believes that the time has not yet arrived to go to the ex treme length of putting wholesale compulsion into effect. This opinion feels that some intermediate step is yet possible; that the Derby scheme has only fallen slightly short and that perhaps a recanvas or another appeal might bring in a considerable part of the unmarried slackers The "Manchester Guardian" asserts that Lord Derby's canvass was done so hurriedly that at least 100,000 unmar ried men were never invited to enroll. Moreover, it is maintained that there is necessarily enormous difficulty in analyzing the Derby figures and a con siderable part of the clow-moving English public opinion revolts at jumping hastily at conclusions, which would mean a change in the organic law of the country. Opinion of Press. The supporters of the voluntary sys tem are emphatic in declining to abandon it until some means have been taken to insure that the Derby scheme cannot be made a success. The morning newspapers long ago lined themselves up on the present issue, but the evening newspapers have tak en a more detached view, and their opinion therefore is more interesting. The following extracts are characteris tic: The "Pall Mall Gazette" says: "The utmost confidence is still felt that the cabinet will meet parliament again as a united body, with a plan that will meet the imperative needs of the sit uation and at the same time dispose of the demand for a general election un til after the war." The "Westminster Gazette' says: "The task of patroitism at this mo ment is to keep silence or, at least, to say nothing that can embarras and hamper the government." The "Star" says: "The crisis which has arisen over the Asquith pledge is purely factitious. It is the work of in triguers, who for months have used every imaginable weapon to break up the unity of the government. The will of the country, however, beyond ques tion is that the ministers should sink prejudices and ambitions and preserve national unity. The Asquith pledge can be kept without splitting the govern ment and the nation." The '.'Evening Standard" says: "Premier Asquith cannot l-e acquitted of all responsibility for embarrassing the situation. His inveterate habit of postponing a decision has encouraged hopes which ought never to have been allowed a moment's existence. His only course now is to act boldly and promptly. Let him take the nation into his confidence and face the conse quences. The country will respond with enthusiasm, and the intriguers will be defeated." a.
