Elsrvrher* WM Spy Caught on Dutch Liner; 21 Detained Naturalized American Brought In Code Message on Nieuw Amsterdam Round-Up of Agents Here Will Result Agriculture Experts Ana? lyzing Plant Bulb Cargo for Poison Pollen Under ?gruelling questioning that lasted several hours on board the Hol? land-America liner Nieuw Amsterdam in Hoboken yesterday one German spy broke down and confessed his guilt jtnd seventeen men and four women were, ordered detained on the boat. In? telligence men from the army, navy. Department of Justice and Immigration service took part in the investigation. The spy is a naturalized American of Gem?an parentage. Tbc antecedents of the twenty-one persons ordered de? tained had not been completely ascer? tained last night, but presumably all were American either by birth or adop? tion. Had Code Messages The spy was caught trying to snug? gle ashore a dozen or more sheets of German code messages sent from Ger? man military and naval authorities to agents in 'this country, and after pro? testing for an hour that they were in? nocent price lists of commercial goods he was cornered and forced to confess that the figures and letters were Ger? man governmental information, des? tined for its agents in this country. The man was not spared. He was put through the "third degree,"' and in des? peration admitted t>iat he had brought the code information to this country on instructions from Berlin and had been paid several thousand Dutch guilders to cany out his commission. It was not revealed how this Ger? man-American had concealed his code information, but it is said that it was taken from under his collar when he was stripped of his clothing among other suspected persons who were de? tained on board the vessel over night. The fact that the code was concealed was a strong indication that the fig? ures and letters were not commercial price lists, and this in itself caused the intelligence men to put the spy tiirough the severest of tests. It is said that he protested for a long while that he feared rival busi? ness agents might hold him up and take from him his precious lists for trade information, and for that rea? son he determined to hide it where it was not likely to be discovered. Representatives of the various in? telligence departments declined to tell the nature of the code papers taken from the man, but it is said they con? sisted of more than a dozen sheets of finely printed numbers and letters ar? ranged in strips, similar to the fashion in which words are listed in a diction? ary. Shields Agents Here The newest of German spies, realiz? ing that he was caught, made a bold stand to protect the persons for whom the code messages were intended. Eventually he confessed his mission and the price that was paid to him for the hazardous enterprise, but he pro? tested he did not know the persons to whom he was to deliver the informa? tion. lie maintained innocence of this phase of the contract, but his inquisi? tors are confident he had been in Ger? many and was instructed before em? barking as to the person or persons to whom he was to deliver his secret information. Reports were current that through persistent interrogation on board the vessel last night a confes? sion had been wrung from him and that the spies in this coun'try who were expecting him would be arrested in this city and elsewhere in the United Mates within forty-eight hours. Experts have already been set to work to decipher the code, and it ii likely that when the work is completed there will be disclosed to the govern? ment a complete revelation of Ger? many's latest plots to impede the Un'itcd States in its efforts to prosecute; the war. Liner Waited For Long before the Nieuw Amsterdam ltft Rotterdam the intelligence depart? ment of the United States gave spe? cial attention to the possibility of ap? prehending code messages in the bag gage and on the persons of the vessel's passengers. The Tribune's expos? of VVcrner K. R, W. Sturze!, the confessed German spy who was brought here re? cently from Porto Rico and interred ai Port Oglethorpe, aroused the inter? est of the various intelligence depart? ments in the latest methods of Ger? many to get code information out of tl is country. They were prepared to 1 ok for the sort of information that as seized upon the person of the spy upon the Nieuw Amsterdam. The line and wash drawing, teeming with code messages, that Sturzel drew for the "Puerto Rico Ilustrado," und which appeared on the cover of thn* society weekly in a recent issue at San ?'nan, was taken up by the intelligence bureaus and instructions w*iere given that searchers on all incoming- and out? going steamships should be on the watch for just such matter. The search of the baggagn on the ?Nieuw Amsterdam was resumed at 8 a- m. yesterday and was practically ?completed last night at il o'clock. lour Passengers Given Liberty About 20 per cent of the first and second ?-lass passengers who were per? mitted to leave the pier last night to Ret meals and spend the night ashore '"d not go hack to the Holland-America Pier yesterday to open their trunks for examination. It is expected that they W?J1 return to-day and that the entire investigation of the v?sssel will have been completed to-night.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.?To delegates of the Federal Board of Farm Organizations, in session here, who called on him to-day, President Wilson said, in speaking of the war and the world's need of food : "This is a final tackle between the things that America has always; been opposed to and was organized to fight, and the things that she stands for. It is tho final contest, and to lose it would set the world back, not a hundred, perhaps several hundred years in the develop? ment of human life. "The thing cannot be exaggerated in its importance, and I know that you men are ready, as I am, to spend every ounce of energy we have got in solving this thing. If we cannot solve it in the best way, we will solve it in the next best way, and if the next best way is not available, we will solve it in the way next best to that, but we will tackle it in some way and do it as well as we can." I. W.W. Plotted To Ruin Crops And Ships Here Systematic Sabotage Against Pacific Coast In? dustries WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.?Following the receipt of news that fifty-five per? sons had been indicted in California for conspiring with William D. Hay wood, secretary of the I. \V. W., to interfere with the prosecution of the war, officials of the Department of Jus? tice to-night revealed that the Indus? trial Workers of the World bad planned a wholesale destruction of in? dustries and shipping on the Pacific Coast. Leaders of the I. W. W. were plot? ting systematic sabotage, government agents discovered. This resulted in to-day's action by the Sacramento Fed? eral Grand Jury. The investigation was a direct re? sult of the recent attempt to blow up the Governor's residence at Sacra? mento. Agents discovered a nest of plotters, whose activities extended throughout the Pacific Coast territory. In addition to blowing up factories, plotters in that section of the country had planned to foment strikes among workmen engaged in war industries, destruction of fruit trees and crops and, to a lesser extent, the destruction of ships being built in yards along the coast. 55 Are Indicted In Sacramento SACRAMENTO, Cal., Feb. 8.?An in? dictment, charging fifty-five persons with conspiring with William D. Hay wood, secretary of the Industrial Work? ers of the World, and others, to hinder the execution of the laws 'of the United States in the prosecution of the war with Germany, was returned to-day by the Federal grand jury. Forty-six of the persons indicted are held in cus? tody here. Nine others reside in or about San Francisco. Separate indictments charge William Hood and G. F. Voetter, named in the conspiracy indictment, with illegal transportation of dynamite. These men were arrested in connection with the attempted dynamiting of Governor Stephens's home recently. Soon after? ward I. W. W. headquarters were raided i and before the police were through : iil'ty-five men had been arrested. General cnarges in to-day's indict : ments include alleged obstruction ot the selective draft act. causing strikes and encouraging sabotage. Bail was fixed at from $2,500 to $5.000. : Frank II. Little, lynched at Putte. Mont., last year, was named, allions others, as persons with whom the men indicted here had entered into con? spiracy. Frank Reilly, wanted in Chicago in connection with the I. W. \V. case.;, was indicted. He had been in custody here. Louis Tori, under indictment in Chicago, also was indicted here. CHICAGO, Feb. 8.?William D. Hay ? wood, with whom fifty-five men indicted l at Sacramento are charged with con : spiing, was indicted by a Federal grand | jury some time ago and has since been ' held in jail here. Counsel has made ? application for his release on bail, but ! a ruling has not yet been made. Pacifists Plan Big Convention Here February 16 Pacifists, Socialists and radical labor men are planning to hold a peace con? tention in this city on February 16 and ' 17, at which delegates are to be elected ?to a similar conference in London at the i end of the month, at which the mal ? contents of the Allied nations hope to : be represented. More than 10,000 invitations have ? been sent and three halls have been : rented for the meeting here, which its ; sponsors consider on a plane of im? portance with the Madison Square Gar | den peace meeting of last May and the ! stormy session of the People's Council I in Chicago in September. The organ? izers of the meeting have headquarters at 138 West Thirteenth Street, which is the home of the People's Council, and include the Rev. John Haynes Holmes, of the Church of the Messiah;, Louis P. Lochner, stage manager of Henry Ford's out-of-the-trenches expedition; IL W. L. Dana, whose resignation from the Columbia faculty recently was forced by the university trustees; Charles W. Ervin, editor of "The New York Call"; Algernon Lee, head of the Rand School of Social Science; Assem? blyman ADraham Rhiplacoff, Justice Jacob Panfeen, Elizabeth Freeman, Tracy I).

Col. Roosevelt Better; Crisis Due To-day | He May Escape Another Operation if Improve? ment Continues Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, some? what improved last night after a rest? ful day in which he took light nour? ishment, to-day passes through what the surgeons in charge are inclined to I believe will be a crisis in his case. ! Should he do as well to-day as he did in the twenty-four hours ended at 6 o'clock last evening, the doctors are ' inclined to believe that no further operation will be necessary. The improvement of yesterday con- j sisted in a marked subsidence of the j ' inflammation of the internal left ear, ! i which the specialists on Thursday ] j feared might make a mastoid operation ; ! necessary. The danger that such an operation will be necessary has not yet j ? passed, but it is considerably more re- j I mote than Thursday night's bulletins I I indicated. There is, however, no tendency on ' i the part of anybody connected with ! the case to disguise the fact that ? Colonel Roosevelt is seriously ill. Dr. Arthur B, Duel, the ear specialist,: summarizes the situation in the words: : j "The outlook is most ?ncoui-ergiug." j Late last night Colonel Roosevelt ? i was resting quietly under the care of ; I Dr. Harold Keyes, the house surgeon, | 1 and a group of nurses at Roosevelt ' Hospital. "The Colonel has had a very com ! fortable day and is progressing favorably. His pulse and tempera? ture have been normal throughout the day, and the violent symptoms , of his internal ear inflammation are subsiding rapidly. The outlook is most encouraging." i This bulletin, issued at 8:15, was accompanied by the anouncement that i Dr. Walton Martin, the surgeon in ! charge, had gone home for the night. Improves in Early Morning j The improvement in Colonel Roo.se ! velt's condition was first manifested in | the early morning, when he awoke after . a considerable sleep to ask for a drink. , His temperature had gone back to nor , i mal, and he was apparently in much less pain. i "How do you feel, Colonel?" asked i ! the doctor. ' "Better, thanks," he replied, and soon ; dozed off again. Just after 8 o'clock Dr. Martin, ac-1 | companied by Dr. Duel, reached the ? ('hospital. A study of the nurse's chart ? was reassuring and examination of the left ear more so. There remained j | some considerable inflammation, but the '< wound looked cleaner, and on the : | whole was in much better condition; 1 than when last examined on Thursday.! I The general improvement was such , | that the physicians decided the patient I could be given some light nourishment, i At 8:30 the first bulletin of the day ?was issued. It read: "Colonel Roosevelt had a very , satisfactory night, having slept about six hours, and will be able to take nourishment at regular intervals to? day. His temperature and pulse are normal." ? ! Report of Death Broadcast While this bulletin was being issued ?a report, the origin of which none I could trace yesterday, spread over the i city, and thence over the country, that Colonel Roosevelt was dead. It was in i Wall Street before the brokers reached j their offices, and over the myriad of: wires that stretch from that district: to the far parts of the country the re-1 I port went out as a rumor. Within a! ?few minutes it came back to press as-j sociations from points as far away as; ?Oklahoma and Michigan, asking for I I confirmation. George B. Cortelyou, in White House: j days the Colonel's private secretary I and later Cabinet member, was another ?early caller, closely followed by Rear, I Admiral Cleaves, commander of the! j Mayflower when that vessel was Prcsi- i dent Rooeevolt's yacht. Then in rapid : i succession came George W. Perkins,, ?"Suspender Jack" McCee, ex-Rough I Rider, and a host of less well known ? ersons. Among them were a few in I the khaki of the private soldier. An ' other, an Italian, called to inquire in ! broken English for "il Presidente." Dr. Mart hi made his second call after ! lunch and found the improvement ; noted in the morning to be continuing. | Through Miss Josephine M. Strieker, ! the Colonel's secretary, he issues this bulletin at 'J o'clock: "Dr. Martin has just seen Colonel j Roosevelt, and he says that the Colo- > nel has had a satisfactory morning and has retained all nourishment. ; Temperature and pulse continue not- ? mal. No additional symptoms "f?ave ' developed." Mrs. Roosevelt, the nurses said, had j been in and out of the sick room at j intervals during the nigh!, making up ' some of her lost sleep during the day. She received no callers during the day. : U. S. Gunfire . Blows Up Big Teuton Battery Flames Shoot High in Air as American Shell Finds Its Mark Barrage Repels Enemy Patrols Yankees Clean Out Nests of German Snipers; Sharp? shooters Active I.Jly Tho Associated I'rcvil WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN FRANCE, Feb. 8.?Tho American artil? lery continued hammering German po? sitions with marked success last night and to-day. A destructive fire on en? emy buildings and works was main? tained. A German battery position was struck by a shell from our heavy guns p.nd caused a heavy explosion of ammunition. A sheet of flame shot high in the air, the ground trembling, and the camou? flage protection around the position was set on fire. Just before dawn two German patrols were observed in front of our position. A barrage tire called for by the in? fantry in the front trenches effectively scattered and drove off the enemy. With our machine guns we all day harassed the enemy, continuously shooting streams of bullets into work? ing parties or wherever the enemy showed himself. The artillery duel continued all day. The enemy patrols have evidently learned a lesson, for last night, while our patrols worked freely all over No Man's Land, they | were unmolested. ?: Americans Rout German Snipers From Their Nests [By Tho Associated Tress] WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IM I FRANCE, Feb. 7.--American artillery ! and infantry have succeeded in clean? ing out a majority of the snipers who caused considerable annoyance from the time the sector was taken over by the troops. Snipers' posts in buildings hnve been destroyed by knocking down the shelters over the heads of the Gev mans with shells. Snipers hidden in bushes or in shell holes have buci routed by American sharpshooters, ending the annoyance. Night patrols have succeeded in locating some of the postions, ind tho Gcimijaa m ? ?u m have been finished off later. Last night a small patrol entered an advanced German trench in search of a nest of snipers. A lieutenant, a cor? poral and two men left the American wire and returned five hours late:-. They walked across No Man's Land, picking their way carefully to avoid discovery. Reaching the enemy wire, they crawled beneath it cautiously and approached the most advanced enemy trench. The men looked down into the trench, which apparently was aban? doned, but they were sure snipers were there. They dropped down noiselessly | and found a place where the trench bottom showed fresh footprints. Or the parapet the corporal discovered a rifle, loaded and pointed in the direc? tion of the American trenches. There was not a German around. The corporal brought back the rifl-2 to the American lines. It is a typical German weapon, made in Berlin and in good condition. At another point enemy snipers were discovered in a shell hole. A few well placed shots from light artillery ended their career. At another plao^ a hail of machine gun bullets was effective. One, two or possibly three snipers* posts are still in front of the AmT ican positions, but they arc not likely to be there long. 100 Veteran Airmen Idle Through Red Tape I By Tho Associated Pr?ts] WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN | FRANCE, Feb. 8.?Nearly one hundred I American aviators experienced in ' French squadrons other than the La? fayette are impatiently awaiting their formal transfer to the American forces, in accordance with the agreement be? tween the two governments. Twelve of these men, who have seen at least, two months' actual service at the front, were released by the French early in January on a supposition that they would soon be commissioned in the American aviation service. Although all passed their examina? tion and were recommended as first and second lieutenants, they have not yet received their commissions and have been compelled to wait in Paris. Aviation headquarters here are unable ; to give definite information regarding the time of transfer because the com- j missions must come from Washington. ! Vexed at the delay >and desirous to enter active service, three of these men have re-enlisted in the French army. Two have been killed in the French service after passing American of? ficers' examinations. Thirty-three La? fayette fliers have been commissioned in the United States army and are now flying on the French front in American uniform. -?-?? Americans Held in London LONDON, Feb. 8.-?Clarence Boying-i ton and Paul Aloysius Manning, both ! American citizens, and William Lucas and Arthur Tilly were held without bail in the Bow Street Court to-day on a charge of attempting to cause dis? affection among the civil population. It is alleged that they distributed in flammatory leaflets during a meeting of i the Engineers' Society in London. I Boyington and Manning were arrest id at Communist Club. America Lost 147 on Tuscania; British Pay Them High Honor Censo?- Barred Hearst Eulogy In Bolo's Paper Considered American Pub-! lisher Germanophile, j Says Witness PARIS, Feb. 8.?-At to-day's session j of the court martial of Bolo Pacha on ! the charge of treason several witnesses ? testified regarding the visit of the ac? cused to the United States in 1916. ? Ihe first witness was Mme. Buzenet, who told of attending a dinner in New York in company with a French cap? tain named Verdier and Adolph Paven stedt, former head of the firm of G. Amsinck & Co., and Bolo Pacha. Lieutenant Provost, of the French censorship departrifcnt, testified that articles praising William Randolph Hearst repeatedly had been taken to Senator Humbert's paper, "Le Jour? nal," in which Bolo Pacha had pur? chased an interest, by Charles F. Ber telli, head of the Paris bureau of the International News Service, who ac? companied Bolo to America and in? troduced him to Mr. Hearst. The lieutenant said his attention had first been called to Bolo Pacha j by a eulogy of Mr. Hearst printed; in "La Victoire," which also described i Bolo Pacha's relations to the Ameri- j :an press. Lieutenant Provost said he had been commissioned to translate several ' articles from the Hearst newspapers, ! after which the French censor had de-1 sided not to allow any further articles laudatory of Mr. Hearst to ?upear, be cause he considered him thoroughly, Germanophile. Charles Bertelli began his testimony j by making a protest at the report'; that Colonel Voyer, president of the | :ourt martial, had said Mr. Hearst was' Germanophile. "Mr. Hearst is not and never was Germanophile," declared Bertelli. "He ' always has been a friend of France." The final witness for the state was j Mme. Bolo-Soumaille, the defendant's ! first wife. She became so faint while ! on the stand that the windows of the j courtroom were ordered opened and the judge broke a precedent by allow? ing the men present to wear their hats. Second Wife Also Testifies .jBolo Pacha was greatly affected by his first wife's testimony. Tears welled into his eyes and he cried, openly as his second wife, Mine. Bolo, appeared on the stand for him. Ruring the cross-examination of Senator Charles Humbert, through \ whom Bolo purchased stock in "Lei Journal," the witness became irritated j at the question of Captain Mornet, the prosecutor, and shouted: "Have me arrested. Place me in the dock and make a frontal attack on me. Do. not treat me as an accused." At this the Senator's friends in the audience cheered, while others attempt? ed to drown the voices of the ?Senator's supporters. Colonel Voyer threatened ' to clear the courtroom. Jellicoe Sees End Of U-Boat Menace By Next August LONDON, Feb. 8.?Admiral Sir John R. Jellicoe, former chief of the naval staff, speaking: at Hull to-day, said he was afraid "we are in for a bad time for a few months, but by late summer?about Aug-ust ?I believe we will be able to say ! the submarine menace is killed." Hatelessness [ Staff Correspondence] WASHINGTON, Feb. 6.--The "hate I ruling" may be modified, although ob- i servers in Washington doubt that it ; will bo entirely abolished. It was is sued by the Creel bureau recently as j a prohibition to war speakers. "Au- ! thorized representatives of the govern? ment," so the order ran, "should not indulge in hymns of hate." Hate hymners ali over the country ! are bringing pressure to bear to have , the order modified. To mitigate the rigor of the order, especially in its au plication to those sections of the coun-, ty where hate hymning has been or? ganized on an extensive basis, it has j been suggested that the Committee on Public Information modify the rul- i ing to coordinate it with the food and fuel rulings. The following tentative hate schedule has been brought to the attention of Chairman Creel in the hope that it may bring about a change in the order: MONDAY?Modified hate day, with permission to sing moderate hate hymns of the kind typified by "When I Return, My Dear, I'll Bring Back the Kaiser's Ear." TUESDAY, Thursday, Friday and j Sundav? Hateless days. WEDNESDAY Full hate day, with all hate prohibitions suspended. SATURDAY?Modified hate day. j Songs permissible on this day must fall under the classification typified by "We Will Tie the Can to Pots dam." t Advocates of this schecule hold that modified hatred on Monday will supply sufficient natural heat to bring a na? tion-wide concurrence in the continua? tion of Monday as a heatless day. The Creel bureau does not deny that there is widespread dissatisfaction with the hate ruling. Resolutions are already beginning to pour into Wash? ington by the dozens from Friday Night Hate clubs and similar hate or? ganizations of national scope. The hate ruling will particularly incon? venience Liberty bond salesmen who have been accustomed to open services with a five-minute hate devotion. The resolutions protesting the hate order are of a varied nature and be? token a good deal of feeling in the matter. Among the most interestine of the communications is the following, sent by the Young Men's Marching Club and Hate Choir, of Kankakee, 111.: You may cut us out of wheat. We'll eat squab instead of meat. And you'll never lift a cus? from us at fate. We will even pass up heat. Rut you're stepping; -on our feet When you rob us of our daily hymn of hate. A decision as to the possibility of modifying the hate ruling will prob? ably be announced shortly. U-Boats Mass In Attempt to Starve Britain Concentrated Near Ireland ; Large Ships and Trans? ports Their Quarry By Arthur S. Draper LONDON, Feb. 8.?I have the best authority for stating that the Germans are making desperate efforts now to in? crease their toll of English shipping in an effort to accentuate the food shortage on the British Isles. In the next two months it will be well to ex? pect unusual submarine activity, though Secretary Baker's statement that many U-boats have been with? drawn in anticipation of this campaign is not entirely accurate. Just for the moment the submarines have concentrated in Irish waters, as they did off the coast of France last fall. That their system o? espionage is still working well is proved by the fact that they have shown uncanny knowledge about the arrival and sail? ing of vessels.. In Irish waters they are able to find many places where they can rest on the bottom until the arrival of a ship. When a submarine is on the bottom a depth charge is of little or no value against it. The U-boats are now making special efforts to torpedo largo ships, whether transports or cargo carriers. The Tus cania was one of the l?gest Allied transports that have been sunk! The fact that she was sent down while under British escort is the cause for much regret her<>, but it should be understood that she was forced to travel by one of the most dangerous routes, through which the British have successfully convoyed many transports. Although there is no cause for pessimism, there is every reason for serious thought about the future at sea. The enemy wants naturally to reduce the number of transports, but he is equally anxious to get food ships. Sir Eric Gcddes's statement that the submarine is held must not be inter? preted as meaning anything more than that the rate of destroying U-boats about equals the output. But a big hole has been made in the world's shipping, and the rate of launching neither here nor in America has been as fast as was expected. And. mean? while, the world's production of food is far below normal. America's coal shortage has affected the food situation here materially, and the necessity of speed in everything appertaining to the war applies to ship? ping with greater force than ever be? fore. Frequent attacks on American trans? ports may be expected from now on, but as the defence is constantly im? proving there is little cause for serious alarm. Above everything else, there is the necessity of speeding things up to the highest notch. Finest Eulogy of Our Men Is to Say That in Trouble They Be? haved as Expected; Roster Lost With Ship Bodies of 126 Soldiers Found Great Military Funeral Will Be Held in ?London; Brit? ish Think Germans Will Be Surprised at the Way This Country Takes Its First Disaster LONDON, Feb. 8.?One hundred and forty-seven Americans lost their lives in the sinking of the transport Tus cania. The bodies of 126 American soldiers have been recovered. The total loss of life was 166. These are the latest available figine* on the Tuscania disaster as announced by the British Admiralty to-night. Of the 2,401 persons on the troop ship, 2,177 were Americans, according to th ? Admiralty records. Up to to-right 2,235 persons, including 113 America:; officers and 1,917 men, were reportai saved. Among the remaining survivors are sixteen officers and 183 men of the Tuscania's crew, and six passengers. List of Names Lost ! The list of Americans on board ttie Tuscania went down with the ship, ac? cording to advices from an Irish port, where some of the survivors have beer, landed, and so it will be impossible to ascertain the names of those iost unti: the names of the survivors have been cabled to the War Department a. Washington. Another group of survivors, includ? ing Captain/McLean and several Ameri? can members of the crew, arrived to? day in Glasgow, according to advice<? from that city. Altogether, 148 sur vivors were landed on the Scottish coast. Of this number 134 belonged to the United States army. One officer and twenty-five men are remaining where they landed, the reports add. to at tend to the funeral arrangements for the American dead. Military Funerals Planned It was announced to-day that ar? rangements are being made by Ameri? can and British officials in London for great military funerals for the Tu? j cania's dead. Both American and British officer?! among the survivors testified to-day to the courage of the American soldieis in the presence of death, and their pei - ! feet discipline as the vessel slowly | settled beneath them in the darkness. ' while the British press is lavish in its praise of their behavior. I When the survivors arrived in Glas? gow they were met by a throng oT ? relatives and friends, and touching ; scenes were witnessed by the corre? spondents. The survivors, the dis patches say, were garbed in a miscella ' neous asortment of clothes, which they ! had picked up when landed from the ! ship. Captain is Silent Captain McLean looked well despite the great ordeal, but he emphatically I refused to make a statement. The en? gine room storekeeper said that when he found the Tuscania was likely to float for some time he went down into his locker, rescued some cash and other trinkets and got away on a raft. Captain McLean last month was awarded the Order of the British Em? pire, on the recommendation of the | Board of Trade. He has been in the service of the Anchor Line for twenty ' years, and during the war has carried many cargoes of munitions and food? stuffs safely through the danger zone. Reports received at the American Embassy yesterday indicated the loss of 101 lives, while the British Ad : miralty's estimate was 210. This dis? crepancy now appears to have been due to the fiict that the figures supplied to : the embassy evidently did not include ! the missing, of whom there are still , many. How Soldiers Behaved How American soldiers behaved when they found that the boats as signed to them on the Tuscania h-ui been smashed is told by an Ameriot. i officer who landed at an Irish poit. ! The officer said that his men behave?! as he had expected them to. Two ful.i boatloads under his command assein . bled on the deck when the torpedo . struck the liner and marched to th? ; boats assigned them. Arriving at thei> i station, they found that both boats ! had been destroyed. "The men lined up on deck at attcn ; tion," said the officer, "and all prc ? served the utmost composure until a destroyer came alongside and trans? ferred the men from the gradually sinking deck. "We stood alongside until the last man was taken off, who, as might be expected, was the commander of the 1 ship. The patients in the tdiip's hos? pital, including several cases of scarla? tina and fever, were among the ?TSt taken off." The correspondent of The Associated Press at an Irish port says the ?ur ? vivors of the Tuscania who are ther? were greatly relieved to hear of the safe arrival elsewhere of Major Benja? min F. Wade, of Washington, com mander of a contingent on the steamei, , and hundreds of other American troops. Women Went Down a Rope The only two women on board, tr<* correspondent's account Bays, Mrs. Col? lins and Mrs. Parsons, went down a rope into a lifeboat. The former siid ! that when their boat left the Tuscania many of the troops had been thrown out in the lowering of the next boat. ? "We were immediately surrounded by men in the icy water v taring life belts." f>he said. "We had only two men in our boat who could manage *r?
