I$10,?000,000 Receipt by Ambas

Journal" - DuRiba Accused.
'H. Tiln-ripl? to TI.? Tribu?.. 1
Providence, Nov. II. "The Provi?
dence Journal" will say tuim.now
' morning:
V real sum of money, amounting to
between 186,000,000 and $40,000,000, h-s
been -?pent in this country in the la-t
I four months for propa?ran?l7i work
t the Allies under the immediate
supervision of Count von Bernstorff,
j the Cern?an Ambassador, and Dr. Hein
I rich Albeit, privy councillor, who ?le?
so ibes himself to a 'Journal' repre
s.entative a? the 'fiscal agent' of his
I government.
"The Journal" has a positive ?ecord
Of ths receipt by Ambassador von
BernstOIaf and Dr. Albert of at least
(10,000,000 in the time mentioned. A
.?eat deal of this money has come
lg_ the Guaranty Trust Company
New York and most of it has been
immediately transferred to the Chase
National Bank and other banks in
which Dr. Albert and Ambassador von
Rernstorff keep a joint account.
"The .Journal" charges that not one
dollar of this money ha*, been spent
for legitimate purpose?, but that all of
it is going for propaganda work of the
ricieus description. one item
alone the maintenance of bureaus for
dragging men out of munitions fac?
tories amounts to many millions of
Separate Fund for Propaganda.
The cost of sustenance of the consu?
lar ?ei-vice of Germany and the ex?
pense-? of the embassy reach the vari
OUS officials through regular channel.,
Which are in r,o way connected with
the fund referred to. It is believed
that the entire cost of propaganda wo; k
conducted by Austrian contuls and
consuls-general Is financed from thit
German fund.
Dr. Albert was interviewed in his
aflea, at Room 74 of the Hamhurg
American Building, New York City, last
Friday by a Journal representative
and vvas asked point blank to s'at?
whether the financial transactions in
which he has recently been involved
covered legitimate operations, the char? :
acter of which he could explain in gen
sral 'o the public. Dr. Albert Imme?
diately called in a secretary as a wit?
ness to the conversation, and then re
"I am fiscal agent of my government
in this country an?i I am handling ecr
tain sums of money."
"Will you tell u-." he was asked, "if
yon an?l the German Ambassador have
joint funds in the Chase National Rank
and p. number of other banks in this
"What Is your purpo?e in asking me
that question""' he replied. Hs WM
toid ?hat the only purpose was to have
him state, If he would so state, that
whatever joint funds he and the am
baasador were carrying and however
P'f.i' the sum total of these fund? was,
v, y were being expended for lawful
"Thrown (?IT HI? Balance."
Dr. Albert refused to make any itato*
ment whatever in regard to thi* mat
lie was than asked if he would
d"nv that he had received per.-nnally
more than (6,000,000 from his govern
? two month?, and if he
? on September .1 receive through
Guaranty Tru?t Company the sum
of (2,1.,000 for "accordon.ca" work.
A. this question Dr. Albert m> visibly
thrown off l.is balance. The question
was based on a wireles? dispatch re
reived by the Guaranty Trust I ompany
on September f>, through Sayville, pur?
porting to come from the Litmus Com?
of Berlin really the Berlin For?

i ship Ancotia attempted to escape at
' full speed after a warning shot had
been fired across her b??w, an\l that
the veisel only stopped after tieing

rino fired on the lifeboats is denied.
The Austro-Hungarian Admiralty
declares that the foreign press had
spread false rumors regarding the
Ancona incident, and continues:

the submarine submerged and torpe?
doed the Ancona, which sank after an

"If any of the pa?senger? lost their
