Along the new battle, front front Gury

to a standstill to-day. In addition to
the St. Claude and Ecouvillon farms
we hold ground to the north of Bol

the danger of a counterattack from

It is unknown whether the battle will

WASHINcJTON. August 15.?German
submarines carrying out raids in Amer
ican waters are of the cruiser type,
very probably converted merchantmen
like the Deutschland. which made two
peaceful trips to the United States be
fore this country entered the war. They
are low-speed craft with groat cruis
ing- radius, carrying large crews, 5.9
ijioh guns and mine-laying equipment,
as well as torpedoes.
These conclusions have been drawn
by naval officers from detailed reports
which have been gathered from time
to time since the U-boats tirst appear
ed off the Atlantic coast last May.
The largest of them probably is not
more than 300 feet long, and officers
are satisfied they are not the super
submarines which frequent reports of
late have said LSvrmany was building.
It may now be stated that tho raid
era have made no effort to attack
troopships leaving for 10 u rope. and that
none of thorn ever has been sighted
by outbound transports or convoying:
warships. This fact, together with the
general character of tlie operations of
the suhmerslbles. Is accepted here gen
erally as proof that the sole purpose of
tho raids is to hinder commerce as
much as possible and. incidentally, to
carry the (jcrm.in campaign of "fright
fulnoss" to the United States.
Speed has been saoriticcd to cruis
ing radius, and it is estimated that
their maximum on the surfaco is not
more than twelve knots, while they
probably cannot do better than six
submerged. Their slowness, officers
cay, makes them unsuitable for opera
tions in tho war zone, where speedy
destroyers are constantly on guard,
and it appears that they have been em
ployed largely In sporadic raiding ex
peditions.

it or not, and one of the features of
this enlarged program was providing

A detailed story of tho attack on a
United Krult Company steamer 200 |
miles off tho Virginia capos Tuesday 1
afternoon by a German submarine that '
fired broadsides was reported this af- i
tcrnoon. Duo to tho crack marksman- !
ship of the American ship's gun crew. !
the underwater vessel was frightened
away.
Jt was a clear day at sea. The bin :
American ship was steaming toward 1
harbor. Everybody was intent upon j
his particular work on board, and
nothing out of tho ordinary was ex- !
peeled. However, there suddenly carne
a call from tho lookout; "Some one's
liring at us."
Members of the crew ran aft, and]
there saw shells flip into tlie waves 1
one after another several thousand
yards back of the ship. Through I
glasses, a German submarine was j
sighted nbout four miles off. with
sweating gun crew:; operating live-inch '
guns at each end of the submersible. I
Immediately the ship's gun crew went
at it. A reckless .but scientific duel |
bogan. Nearer came the shells of the
U-boat, and closer to the U-boat
plunged the shells from the ship. Af- I
ter fifteen shots had been tired by the j
llun. and eight or nine by the ship. 1
the Hun crew ducked for shelter, and
the submersible itself sought the safe- ;
ty that unfortunately lies a few fa
thoms below the surface of the sea. J
It was a joyous gun crew on tho
ship?they had scared the boche. The
submerslblo was described as having
been about 350 feet long, with two tive
inch guns, and probably some Miuilm
guns on the deck.
