PRTKRSBUKG, VA., August 7.?
Among the casualties In the American
army made public to-day are two mem
bers of the Klghtieth Division who.
while stationed at Camp Lee. made
many friends in Petersburg. They are
reported as wounded, and are Sergeant
F. B. Shultz and C. C. Llptrap, bo'h
Virginians. The latter was formerly
employed at the I">u Pont plant.
Chief of Pol Ire Matter Settled.
At the meeting of the police com
missioners last night. James Broekwell
was re-electcd chief of police. He ac
cepted. qualified and at once assumed
charge of the force. Mr. Brockwll
resigned the office In the latter part
of June, becausc of supposed criticism
and declined re-election at the re
organization early In July. He con
sented to again accept the position on
the assurance that the criticism of
which he complained had no reference
whatever to him. One of the conditions
Of his acceptance is that the salary o'
the office, as increased by the hoard of
aldermen to J2.40O. shall not be con
curred In by the council. Mr. Brock
well wants and will accept no increase
of salary, and the council will be asked
not to gmnt an increase. Karlv In
July, at Ihe reorganization of the force,
Mr. Brock well having declined -e
olectlr.n, Mulcaha, street commissioner,
was elected chief. He has not de
clined nor accepted thS" position, nor
has he been dismissed. With appar
ently two chief?, the situation is some
what muddled, but the presumption is
| that the action of the police board last
| night will be accepted aa definitely
I settling the matter.
"Bad Man" at Lorfce.
James Taylor, a West Virginia negro,
is panted by the Petersburg police.
Arriving in the city yesterday, he pro
ceeded to the home of Alex. Prltchett
and wife. ? eolored, and "shot up" the
home in savage style. Prltchett re
ceived three balls in his legs, but the
woman i escaped by rapid dodging,
though she was shot at. Taylor then
disappeared. He was a former friend
of the family.
Council Knlled to .Meet.
The regular meeting' of the Council
scheduled for last night was not held
for lack of a quorum. Of the twenty
| four members of the body, only eleven
were present, and an adjournment had I
to be ordered. The intensely hot
weather was the cause of the failure.
It was too hot for exercise or busi
ness. The temperature yesterday and
last night was the highest known here
in years.

Price Advance
For over a year now we have
succeeded in maintaining our
old prices, principally by
virtue of a big increase in
sales, which reduced our
overhead cost.
For our fiscal year ending
July 1, 1918, our sales
amounted to over a million
dollars?an increase of 58%
over the preceding year.
We had hoped to bridge
the war period without-a
change in prices on
Vick's VapoRub
but we find that our econ
omies do not keep pace with
our rising costs. It is with
sincere regret, therefore, that
we are forced to announce an
increase, effectivo August 1,

The Diamond Shoals li?ht station is

steps to that end already have been
taken by the commander of the naval
district. If necessary, antisubmarine
craft may ho established to prevent
a recurrence of the Incident.
The attack upon the lightship may
represent a new phase of enemy sub
marine operations off the American

destruction of Important navigation

said, would make navigation of the

steamship which had boon torpedoed
off the Nova Scotia coast. The vessel
was the Tokuyama Maru, of 7,023 tons
gross She was sunk without warning
about 200 miles off shore on August
1, according to the crew.
The Tokuyama Maru, a freighter,
which was owned by the Japanese Mall
Steamship Company, was on a voyage
from England to an American port.
The crew took i/i small boats and was
picked up by the American schooner.
The vessel was built at Koike In 1315.
The submarine fired five torpedoes
before the freighter went down, mem

later the U-boat camo alongside the
small boats, and the German com
