Today the Russians are reported to have seven warships bombarding the forts of the Bosphorus from the Black Sea. This narrow strait is 18 miles long.

At the western end the English and French fleets aro still hammerinp; at the forts on both sides of the Dardanelles and are throwing shells across the Gallipoli peninsula from the Gulf of Saros 12 miles across land. The railroad lines explain the shortage of supplies and ammunition which the Turks are reported to be experiencing. The line to Berlin passes through Servia, which, of course, is not per mitting any supplies to go through its territory. Tho other line extends to the Greek port of Saloniki, which also is of little avail to the Turks.

HONOLULU, March 29. A small fleet of naval tugs, wrecking vessels of private salvage companies and barges left hero early today to raise the sunken submarine F-4. All hope of saving the lives of the 21 men aboard has been abandoned, Naval experts refused to predict how long It would take to raise the vessel, even far enough to recover the bodies. They said untold engineering obstacles must be overcome. Some doubted It the vessel could be hoisted before tomorrow. The knowledge that the submarine had been located Just outside the harbor, more than 300 feet below the surface, after almost three days spent on a false clue, spurred the rescue corps to renewed ef fort. Passage of four days since the F-J made her death plunge precluded hops of rescuing any survivors. Parts of tho submarine's conning tower and super structure, raised by grappling hooks late yesterday afternoon, made tt certain that the vessel was definitely located. The rescuers were greatly downcast be cause they had wasted three days on the obstruction, believed to be the submarine. only to find, through dUera, that V, was an abandoned anchor. An Immense div ing bell was being constructed today, by which It la hoped to facilitate fashioning of a "cradle" of steel hawsers, looped about the vessel, to hoist her between barges.
