It ' has been established fully that
the ship sunk wa the Wihimera, bound
from ' Auckland, New Zealand, 8yd
,pey, Australia, with 141 persons
'aboard, and ant the Maheno; a sister
ship, whiiii was first reported here as
haying been sunk oy the mine.
Britiih admirality reports Issued in
Auckland said the steamer was sunk
by "an external explosion", Passen-
?;urs arriving here from the South ay
t Is generally known that the mari
time disaster resulted from the strik
ing of an enemy mine, with which the
water of 4he Southern Pacific hate
been strewn.
Details reaching here of fhe kinking
of the Wirtimera, and the consequent
loss of life, are fully confirmatory of
the report that the Germans hive car
ried the war, especially agninst ship
ping, into the Pacific again this year.
Waters fetrewn With Mines
From time to time reports have been
reeaived and published from the south
ern British colonies that German raid
ers had been sighted during the last
few months in the South Pacific, a re
port which a high official of Australia
denied to American officials.
' Following the raider reports came
the news that mine fields hud been dis
covered in New Zealand waters, in
which the mines were of the latest
German anchor type.
How these mine fields hail been
planted has not been established, al
though suspicion has pointed to "neu
tral" ships or Gorman ships which
have succeeded in passing aa neutral
ships, as 'did ' the" raider steadier, when
boarded in the North Atlautic by a
Itritish officer becunse of its Norwe
gian camouflage.
No news of the sinking of the Wim
mers was allowed to reach the outside
world through the news agencies. New
Zealand pajiers carry accounts of the
disaster, but all reference to the cauBe
is' oonflned to the explanation that it
was "an external explosion".
WareTwo Explosions
Wimmera passengers say that prior
to the sinking of the steamer there
wefe two distinct explosions. In two
ihitilites alf'the Hhtu bn tBe ship were
extinguished, bnt there was no panic
at(ftfng the passengers or crew.
"The women and children behaved
magnificently. The vessel kept an even
keel for about feu minotcs atld then
settled by the stem. Then her bows
rose about fifty fet in the air and the
vessel plunged," one of the rescued
passengers says.
The Winiinera Fas struck near the
.stern, ami the social hall was smashed
to pieces by tt mine explosion. The
fact that the vesxel kept nn even keel,
ami the wind was toward the laud,
helped materially to lessen the magni
tude of the disaster, it is believed.
Officers Go Down
Other details reaching here ere that
it was a moonlight night when the
ship was sunk, and then- was a fair
sea. The euptuin, first officer, chief
steward and several others remained on
the ship to the last, an I apparently
weut down with her. Kour persons
were rescued from the seu, iiuliidinu
the chief eugineer who walked off
the deck as the ship sank. One bout
was swamped and one was stove in.
The difficulties that arose in' persons
getting clear of the vessel were prin
cipally due to inability to get on deck
after the lights went out. One fainilv
of eleven and oue of seven were nil
saved. Fourteen stewards and all the
stewardesses were missing from the
first "boats landed, but some of them
reached shore in other bonis after
wards. Most of the stewards who were
saved climbed throngh a skylight to
the ship's deck. One of those saved
was a Mexican, who was in the steam
er tiinqel at the time of the 'explosion.
Trawlers Assisted
The report that timely assistance
was Tendered bpr trawlers in the vicin

Const of New Zealand were be;ng

There were eighty-four persons in
the first boats to reach the New Zen
land coastline, all of whom were chid
iu night attire and without footwear
of any kind. They then had to walk
aud crawl over eight miles of rough
hill country to reuch the home of u
sbsepfurmer, where they were given
every assistance ioslible by the farm
ers and the Maoris iu the vicinity. A I'
ter their arrivul at the sheep station
the ship's assistant purser, uccompa
nieW by a Maori, rode seventeen miles
to telegruph the news of the sinking
of the Wimniera. All those reuchin
the sheep station were well after their
harrowing experience, but very foot
sore and tired.
Vood and clothing were secured for
the eighty five Survivors, fifteen of
whom were women, aud sixteen chil
drru, from the naval trawlers uud ria
ldents of the Pnrennrenga district,
when their distress wax learned.
'mtf nir.e Thought Lost
Oilier boats afterward renched the
New Zcalenl shore which cut the list
of those missing down from fifty -six
to twenty nine, which was believed the
exact number who lost their lives,

Serious attention wns directed yes

I ieut'nant made nn epn"-ive gesture,
"just like that. The 'prisoners I saw
told us that now that the American
people have entered the war the Ger
man people have no more hope of a
decisive victory. It vas while I was
at Verdun that I sa v the prisoners
brought in. Hardly any of them in
the first natch were under sixty years
old, while in the second batch T saw
they were mostly boys. I should judge,
ns young as fourteen or fifteen years.
Thev all seemed played out and almost
famished and nte the bread the French
soldiers divided ' with them like rtni
ma'g. Tho French soldiers gave :heir
prisoners to eat from .their own ra
dioing, but in Germany - the (lermais
deliberately starve their prisoners.
"I wish I could describe Verdun and
the surrounding; country. Lvery where
I saw the wreck and ruin of war. The
ground in every direction was pitted
and plowed by shell fire until it seem
ed fluit there was not a single square
inch which has escaped being torn up.
The principle of the French barrage
fire seems to be that the French 75s
are pointed behind the German lines
and the 40s in front, then tin- 7."s are
lowered and the bnrrage brought in,
and the 40s raised, the barrage extend
ed until the two barrages of exploding
steel meet. The result is that every
thing between la 'practically destroyed.
And all the time the French soldiers
are advancing back of their barrage un
til they take possession of the wreck
of the former (Icrmau trenches.
Destruction Fearful
"You cannot picture, the scenes of
destruction all along behind the front
trenches. 1 remember one scene beside
II little canal which wns heaped full
of the remains of exploded shells and
the debris of battle. It is a common
sight to see n steel helmet h4iII strap
ped to 11 skull, or a white bone of a
foot sticking out of a sun dried shoe.
In fact the signs of destruction nnd
death arc so common one soon comes
to pay no 11 1 ten t ion to it at nil "
Speaking of his exciting experience
ti board the steamers iu the war zone
Lieutenant fcamson acknowledged thnt
ae had twice been blown up bv sub
marines, 'nnd once spent part of the
night -with the survivors of his ship
floating in the icy waters of the North
Sen upheld by a life-preserver.
Sunk By U boat
"The first time I was sunk by a
submarine was while on a supply ship
in French waters. AW saw the peri
scope of the submarine and tried our
best to sig zug away, but she caught
us in the stern with a torpedo and we
were forced to take to the bouts. In
this attack no lives were lost, but it
was different the second time.
"This time wo did not see the sub
marine nnd the torpedo struck us while
I was on wntch, about 2 o'clock in the
moruiug. The explosion was so fright
ful that it killed about two thirds of
the crew ami the Btern of the ship
broke off and sunk. There' was only
one thing to do nnd thnt was to throw
ourselves into the sen and try to get
away from the sinking hull. We did
this and our commander culled for us
to stick together and assist each other.
We all hud our lifebelts on for wn
even sIojti in them in tho danger ones.
Floated for Hours
"We floated around in thnt icy
water until H o'clock the next morning
when we were rescued by a British
trawler unil carried to an English port.
You, can bet I wis glad of a rest after
that experience. ' '
After this Lusign Samson was as
signed to the Destroyer Lawrence and
i' was while serving under Admiral

his promotion. Lieutenant Samson
says very little about the fight in which
he was wounded, other than to say

You set the dial at any depth to 100
feet and then drop the bomb overboard.
When she hits the water the bomb
sinks quickly and the float plays out

and the bomb explodes.
"You are going at 'attack speed',

Not until the fullest educational op
portunities are opened to every child,
irrespective of the income or circum
stances of its parents, will the Kritish
Labor Party be satisfied, said Arthur
Henderson, leader 6f that party, at a
conference hore the other ilny. Mr.
Henderson added that the labor pnrty
welcomed the new educational lull now
before parliament a "at least an in
stallment of long overdue reforms.
"The lubor party," he went on,
"menus to break the vo-ious circle
which binds ignorance to poverty and
poverty to ignorance. It has dcmuiid
eil that every worker shall lie paid a
full living wage, and by a living wnge,
it means one high enough to eiuilile the
worker's children to receive, as good
an education a the children of his era-
With fhe arrest of David Kaonohi
yesterday, License Inspector Ilutton
believe thnt he has bagged the head
of the "Wind1 pig" ring in Honolulu.
Kaonohi wak formerly on the police
force and know all the tricks of the
trade and despUe numerous utt'mpts
on the part of both the police s.nd
license officers to lnnd him, h ' has
eluded capture. Ilutton will handle this '
ense through the federal court. Attor
ney Willinm T. Rawlins is represent

( ployer. To those who say that an
: abundant supply of cheap juvenile
labor is ne-essary to industry we ns
- wer 'Hands off the children! They are
the nation of the future'."
I Among the injrty's demands he
named limitation of the employment of
children out of school hours, uud com
pulsion upon local education authori
