The Eastern army corps. consisting mostly of Paris',n drnIs. went Ia battle. The artllery had so thoroughly pulverised the German defense works, that the objectives were reached with in ma ibur and the position was se curely consolidated. Two hours later the Carlsbad. Tep lits and Berlin trenches, as well as the defense on the outakrts of St. Perre Vaast wood, were carried In an irre sistible onrush. The German artillery never made a poorer showing. Short igI in shells was evident, from the felw ill-timed barrages turned . but the infantry fought fiercely. The German line had been worn thin at Sailly and a violent crossfir, was turned on by the French batteries, pinning the troops in their rear tienches and inflicting serious loss. Gen. Fayol l's men are now 200 ,.:'ds from Sailly Saillisel and are enveloping strongly the fortified St. Perre-Vaast wood, one of the last (el man strongholds north of the Pe ronne.

Extension of submarine warfare to the American coast has opened a new diplo matic dispute with Great Britain. It was said at the British Embassy last night that the United States will be call ed upon to decide immediately whether any more U-boats shall be permitted to enter American ports. The allies con tend that the entrance of such boats Into American harbors violates neutrality. The question was first raised In the case of the Deutschland, but as the Deutschland was decided by the United States to be a commercial submarine. Secretary Lansing declined to pass upon the Issue until a concrete case, involving the entrance of a war submarine, had arisen. That concrete case has now arisen. Since the case of the Deutschland arose, Spain. Sweden and Norway have, ao cording to the British Embassy, ac Cepted the view taken by the allies and have adopted regulations excluding war submarines. The United States Navy Department holds, however, that the U-53 was wholly within her rights in entering Newport and that submarines are entitled to all the privileges of any warship. If the State Department maintains this atti tude there will be the sharpest possible conflict of opinion between the American and British governments. The American government will be call ed upon to pay indemnity for all ships sunk by submarines that receive the hos pitality of American ports. DECLARES SUBMARINES VIOLATE NEUTRALITY Capt. Hertz, Late of Allied Forces, Says U-53 Is Mother Ship. (fBy the Intersatemal News series.) New York.

'After the Bremen'a capture the Ger mans did not dare to send the Amerika over unarmed." he said. "They have simply repainted her and slapped a few guns on her, and sent her ever." The big U-boat which is devastating FhIpping' off Nantucket is a mother ship of three smaller submarines within ten miles of our coast. Capt. Hqrtz said he had been Informed. The officer-lecturer believes the Amerika's crew and that of the U-53 are Identical. 'The submarine is out there obviously for the sole purpose of violating Interna tional law." said Capt. Hertz. "She is using this country as a base, and its wireless to send communication, '' Capt. Hertz charged that Count von Bernstorff's offices had been used as a base for directing all belligerent opera tions against the allies. BUCKSHOT GRESTWO CHESTNUT GATHERERS E. W.

WILSON AWAITS KAISER'S ENVOY Bernstorff Expected to Explain Daring Raids of U-53. (my the Isternatienal News Service.) Asbury Park, N. J., Oct. .-Extraor dinary interest is attached to a confer ence between President Wilson and the German Ambassador. Count von Berns torff. at Shadow Lawn tomorrow. An official explanation of the mysterious visit of the submarine U-53 at Newport. which was followed almost immediately by 0e raids at the Eastern doorway to the United States, will be expected of the Kaiser's representative, it in said. The President telephoned from Shadow Lawn to the executive offices here this afternoon. asking for all information ob tainable concerning the operations of the submersible off the New England eoast. A oommugleation from Washingten said a rebolt from Admiral Austin X. Knight. at Newport. who talked with Capt. Hans Rose, of the daring sea raid er, would probably not be received be fore Monday. The situation is known to be regarded with deep concern. both as affecting pol itics at home and international relations Before the hostile activities of the U-63 were reported, the explanation of the German commander that 'he crossed the ocean in the face of toe British enemy for the sole purpose of delivering a hag of mail for Ambassador von Bernstorf was not accepted seriously at Shadow Lawn. Within the last few days the Presi dent has expressed fear that any inter ference by this administration in the European situation might be capitalized by his political opponents.

Oct. 8.-Lying of Nantucket light. where every liner bound to and from New York must get its bearings, the Ger man submarine U-53, aided probably by one or two other war submarines, torpedoed and sunk six ships today. Four of them were British, one a passenger carrier. The others were neutral, one Dutch and the other Norwegian. An American steamship was held up, but was allowed to proceed. Admiral Knight, commander of the naval station here, says the Nantucket lightship reports a second German submarine near by.

So far as is known, there has been no loss of life. but the crew of one steamer, the Kingston, is in open boats. Seventeen of the fastest destroyers in the United States navy are ploughing through the fog in search of them. The U. S. S. Balch has flashed the radio stations that she expects to arrive after midnight with the first of those rescued. The innocent looking engine of war which lay at anchor for a few homrs in the inner harbor here yesterday afternoon became a death-dealing demon no sooner than she had sped past the three-mile limit today. AMERICAN FREIGHTER SIGHTED. She first sighted the American freighter. Kansan, making her way through the dim light of early morning from New York to Boston. Capt. Rose, the suave and keen-eyed commander of the U-53. personally stood on the bridge and hailed the Kansan. The freighter was not detained long. After inspecting the ship's papers, Capt. Rose apologized and allowed the vessel to proceed. The Kansan was fifty miles away from the zone when her wireless operator picked up the dreaded S 0 S. It was from the British ship West Point. From station to station along the coast the distress call was repeated. The captain of the Kansan instantly heeded the call. It was followed by a message briefly saying the West Point had been attacked by a submarine and was in danger of sinking. Her crew and passengers had taken to the boats, ready to put to sea. DESTROYERS FLY TO RESCUE. Twenty minutes after the call was flashed to the Naval Training Sta tion here, the torpedo boat destroyer Jarvis had left her moorings and was headed for the open sea. She was rapidly followed by the other boats of the flotilla. Crowding their boilers, the fleet navy boats started on the hundred-mile journey of mercy. But the Kansan was first to reach the rapidly sinking straner. She beat the navy boats in the first race in American waters to sa e the lives of persons imperilled by the ruthless undersea warfare. Two hours later, the U-53, still loitering in the lanes of steamships on their way to Boston or foreign ports, sighted the British freighter Strath dene, bound from New York to Bordeaux. LOADED WITH MUNITIONS. The Strathdene, loaded with munitions of war for the allies, proved easy prey for Capt. Rose and his men. Twenty minutes after the crew had taken to the open boats she lifted her nose toward the sky and sank. Pluackily battling the waves, the crew of the Strathdene managed to reach the Nan tucket Shoals Lightship. There seventeen of them were found by the de stroyer Balch. Leaving the balance of the rescue work to her sister ships, the Baich was ordered to return here by Admiral Knight. It was soon after 5 o'clock that a wireless call at' the training statism told of the torpedoing of a third ship. It was the Red Cross Stepheae, to New York from Halifax. The Stephene received her vital blow at 4:s o'clock. It was more than an hour later before the word had been received here. In rapid succession tonight thes wireless sputtered its tales of disasesr to the other ships. The Kingston was the Grat to sink. Then followed the Bloomersdijk and Knudsel. U-55 CARRIEn gIX TORPEDOKS. Naval edicers say the U-53 had only six torpedoes aboard wham s left here yesterday. Norsqglly the submkrine carried eight, but two et these were spenat om the vdpa these shoren. Capt.

Navy Also Details War ships to Guard Neutrality. Through one of the allied embassies it was learned last night that French and British cruisers off the Atlantic coast were in conference by radio. Three cruisers were off Hampton Rtoads and two or three off New York. It was said that all but one of the warshipe would rush to the New England coast. Through the same source. It was ascer tained that the allies would hurry war ships from Bermuda and Canada to re enforce the cruisers now on Atlantic pa trol. No information could be had here as to a possible secret base for supplying a German submarine fleet. One serious spect of the submarine warfarm it poInted out, would be a bound up marine insurance. In the behef that more than one sub marine was off the coast. orders were given by the Navy Department last night to increase the American coastwise pa trol within the three-mile limit. This will be done in the interest of neutrality. The United States han always protested when it was alleged that a British ship invaded the three-mile limit in pursuit or attack, and no favors will be shown Germany in this respect. There is no disposition at either the State or Navy Department to dispute the right of Germans to make war where they please, so long as they are outside the three-mile limit.
