Abused Captured Crews of Sunken. Fishing Vessels. Nantucket, Aug. 13. An American flag torn from the masthead of the little schooner, Lena May, one of the fishermen sunk by a German sub marine tjfl the New England coast Saturday, was taken aboard the enemy craft by a German officer who wrapped it around his neck and gave a gro tesque exhibition of dancing while his men, each armed . with a revolver, looked on and cheered. This was the story told here today by survivors of the vessel who were forced to witness the performance. The fishermen hal been ordered aboard the U-boat, where ten of them stood against the conning tower to be photographed. As they were being lined up for the pic ture, they were jeered by the U-boat crew, and knocked about when they failed to move as rapidly as the com mander ordered. Stamped on American Flag. The mate of the Lena May declared that the Germans were drunk. At least they were "half shot," he said. "You would have thought that, too, had you seen the dance of the .Ger man officers with the stars and stripes draped about his shoulders and heard the cheering as the flag finally was nung down and stamped on, amid shrieks from our captors. Cheered When They Found Beef. ' "And you would have thought a train they were drunk when finding a side of fresh beef in our galley, they set up a roar that resembled that which comes from a crowd at a ball game. The way they cheered made me think they were half starved." A member of the submarine crew who spoke English rather brokenly was asked why they wanted a photo graph: "That goes back to Germany." he repliea, ""to show what we do over here. We Jiave suite a lot oC. them. Thejy Took good In Berlin." Captives Badly Treated. All of the men from the Lena May and the Earl and Nettie, another fisherman sent down by gunfire, said they received outrageous treatment at the hands of the Germans. Rising to the surface in the midst of the fleet the submarine commander found more vessels than he could sink im mediately. They were told to stand by and await destruction. In the de sire to obtain food and clothing, the commander set out in a dory and to save his own men from rowing Capt. Frank Lynch of the Lena May and two other fishermen were required to man the boat. They were ordered repeat edly to hurry. The continual Jeering of the Germans got on the nerves of the fisherme but they remained quiet, as the sight of many revolvers showed that they would have no chance if they offered resistance. There was a fresh outburst of jeering as the fishermen boarded their dory and pulled away. "Th'ty had taken everything we had except the clothes we -wore," the mate said, "but we were glad to get away. And the thing that hurt most was the way they shouted while stamping on our tjag.

They took away my good name and gave me number 494. They made me go to church Sunday whether I wanted to or not. In church the parson, in giving out the hymn, said "All turn to 494.

Says Constituent Assembly Will Return to Power. RUSSIAN PEOPLE" HATE HUNS Anti-Bolsheviii Forces Will Welcome Allied Troops., Socialists More Than Bour geoisie Against KolsheTitL BY JOSEPH SHAPLEN. . (Who arrived today from Russia.) New York. Aur. 1$. They are sweeping even Russia - back into the war. inere is every reason m auii, now that next summer will bring res toration of the eastern front. The ab rogation of the Brest-Lltovsk peace treaty may be' expected any moment. That the end of the Bolshevik! la near has been pointed out repeatedly in press dispatches. I have never been so convinced of It as I am now. The big question was who would suc ceed them. Germany has felt the in evitable downfall of the Bolshevikl. The late Count Mirbach's principal work in Moscow was to prepare for the downfall of the Bolshevik! and similar to that of Skoropadsky in the Ukraine. But Russia s passion for freedom and unity has frustrated the scheme of Germany. Germans Can't Dominate. There will be no Skoropadsky gov ernment in Moscow. The constituent assembly composed of an overwhelm ing majority of social-revolutionists and socialists of the Menshevik group are coming back into power. Their first act will be an announcement to the world 'that the shameful Brest Litovsk treaty na longer exists, that the revolutionary democracy of Rus sia does not recognize it. An open in vitation to tbe allied governments l send an army into Russia to help re organize her military forces for a re newed fight on Germany will follow. The constituent assembly and the party of the social-revolutionists have ' already expressed themselves in no ambiguous terms on the matter. They are now waiting and working unceas ingly to get back into power to make men- action an orflcial call to the al lied governments in the nam of th ui nuasia. , ,- - r MMrtcaa Help Eagerly Awaited. The tJnited S'ates is the country most trusted of all the allies in Russia. American help is eagerly awaited. It will be embraced with enthusiasm. Bolshevikism is dead. It Is bank rupt It cut Its- own throat when it signedthe Brest-Litovsk peace treaty and when it broke not so much, with the Bourgeoisie as with the revolution ary democracy itself. There may be unity and oo-operation between the. Bourgeoisie and the bankrupt Bolshe- viki. There can never be any co operation between the latter and the revolutionary democracy. And that means tho vast majority of the people of Russia. Hate Germany Mora Than Ever, . There fs more anti-German feeling in Russia today than there ever was. The murder of Count Mirbach, the representative of German Imperialism in Russia, was as symbolic of the down fall of the brief sway of Germany over Russia as was the assassination of von Pleve, of the inevitable downfall of czarism. Russia is coming back into the war. She is coming back to fight for the establishment of a reunited independ ent republic if Russia and the democ racy of the world may, prepare to welcome her back into the field.
