NURNBERG BACK FROM SECRET
CRUISE AT SEA; MUST GO ON
AGAIN AT-7AJI. TOMORROW
A prize valued at more than $600,000 barely escaped the
vigilant officers in the German second-class cruiser Nurnberg, t
when the British tramp freighter Strathardle, practically a new
boat, laden with 6000 tons of the best grade of Australian coal,
under top speed came to an anchorage off the harbor last even- j
ing, followed about 7 hours later by the Nurnberg, which be- j
fore 9 o'clock this morning had been assigned to a berth at
Pier 7, there to take 750 tons of coal before the expiration of
the neutrality time limit of 24 hours. The Nurnberg dropped
anchor at 7:00 this morning and must leave by 7:00 tomorrow
A grim, grey-painted thrce-funneled war vessel came up
over the horiion in the direction of Barbers Point at daybreak
this morning giving rise to the report that either a Japanese
cruiser or the German Leipzig was about to pay a visit to the
When a delegation of federal officials in the public health
service proceeded to the point where the vessel awaited pra
tique,vits identity was soon known. .
Captain von Schoenberg immediately took steps to secure
coal for the almost empty bunkers. Federal and territorial of
ficial machinery was at once set in motion. The many complex
phases of the neutrality laws and regulations were carefully
considered and following a brief conference in which federal
offlcials,vCpnsul Georg Rodiek,
driven tot berthing .'the .Nurnberg at a territorial wharf, and
" , that ' vessel has been permitted to take on about 750 tons of
coal, within the 24 hours allotted to her stay at a neutral port.
Captain von Schoenberg stated today his vessel had not
tailed at any port after departing from Honolulu on its secret
mission at midnight on July 27.
The last visit of the Nurnberg at San Francisco, according
to the report from the ship, was on July 20 when the German
cruiser steamed for Honolulu and was then destined to pro
ceed to Tsingtau, the German naval base on the north China
coast. The Nurnberg at that time was expected to remain at
Honolulu for at least three days. At 9 o'clock on the night of
the date of arrival at this port Captain von Schoenberg re
ceived urgent cables from Germany to make all haste in steam
ing from Honolulu under sealed orders.
' . The amount of coal at present allotted to the Nurnberg can
easly be placed in its bunkers in less than 12 hours. Unusual
care was exercised in the selection of a force oSf laborers to load
the f uel. It was noticeable that no Japanese were employed in
this particular job.
This is the third call that the Nurnberg has made at the
port within the past year. Steaming from Honolulu last No-

in the vicinity of the Panama canal zone that the Leipzig was

Germany were transferred to the Nurnberg, then soon to be
despatched to the German naval base at Tsingtau and thence
to the fatherland.
These men are yet far from the coveted homeland, many
of them realizing the difficulties that continue to beset them in
their memorable cruise the Pacific.
The Nurnberg has iot been cleaned at a dry dock for a
number of months. The vessel was last in dock at San Fran
cisco the latter part of December. With the exception of being
a trifle larger and possessing a greater steaming radius and
more speed, the Nurnberg much resembles the Leipzig in its
equipment, armament and tonnage. The two powerful screws
provided this vessel are declared capable of driving it through
the water at between 22 and 23 knots an hour.
"The Nurnberg can remain in port only 24 hours, and can

FRAGMENTARY NEWS OF GREAT BATTLE
LONDON, Eng., Sept. 1. The censorship of all military
movements in northern France is suddenly absolute. Nothing
but fragmentary and unsubstantial minor news is permitted to
percolate through the hands of the severe military censors. But
even this news points to the raging of a great. battle between
the Allies and the German .forces, also tremendous bodies of
military clashing along a long and perhaps broken battle-front.
The latest official bulletin from Paris said that " owing to
the progress of the German right main wing, the French left
had been forced to "make a new retirement." ,J .. V
