Government. The burden of these, rep
resentations will he thnt the submarine
which Hank the Ahcona Wig Herman
and that absolutely no warning wan
given before the steamship was attacked.
The captain of the steamer has already
made an affidavit supporting both these
contentions. It received wide publicity
and credence In this city.
II Is generally admitted hero that
a most Important decision Is now Im
pending ax a result of the activities of
Herman submarine! In the .Mediterra
nean. The sinking of the Anemia has
but brought to a head a crisis which
the press has predicted for some time.
Without waiting for a decoration of
war against Herman)-, anti-Herman re
prisals should be begun at once, the
Italian newspapers now urge. In some
of these anti-Herman polemics, which
are allowed to go unchallenged by the
censor, the lurge property holdings of
Hermans and Austrlans are polnicd out.
Their financial Interests here. It H eald,
exceed a billion dollar.
The, affidavits of Ihe Ancona's cap
tain declare that the submarine shot
away the Ancona's wireless apparatus
and continued to fire shells against
it m propeller and helm bridge, until she
ank Fire wna then directed against
the boats filled with survivors, It If
As for the Italian steamer Flrenxe,
Whose sinking was reported here Satur
day, It Is now announced that a warn
ing was given by the submarine com
mander and that a time limit of five
minutes was given for the crew to
lower the boats and abandon the ship.
It was officially stated to-day that the
submarine In this attack flew an Aus
trian flag. It was also announced offi
cially that ninety-six members of the
crew ami twenty-seven passengers were
saved, and fifteen of the crew anil alx
passengers are still missing.
The nationality of the pussengers on
board the Kirenze has not yet been as
certained, but It Is said that some were
Kngllsh. These, it Is further asserted,
declare that the submarine which at
tacked them was German.
An eyeWltneaa of the sinking of the
Fireme says tha.t the vessel was forty
miles off the Kuypttan coast when, about
dusk, a submarine appeared a thousand
feet off the starboard bow and fir-'d
a shot. The Klrenze stopped at once
and the passengers left dinner and
ruahed o the deck. A second shot
carried away the line's rudder.
The submarine commander then sig
nalled thM tne passengers would be
permitted to leave. He directed the
lowering of six lifeboats and when they
had been filled towed them to a safe
dlstam-o from the Firenze before rid
dling the Firenze with shells. The suit
marine disappeared in the darkness and
the lifeboats made for Syracuse, where
the passengers were landed.
