The German artillery never made a

The German line had been worn thin

Sharp Issue Between Britain
and U. S. Brought Near.
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
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
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.

Says U-53 Is Mother Ship.

with t)S allied armies. He is lecturing
on thl' war. Last Friday " said he had
seen the Bremen. captured. in a British
port, and that the Amerika was bound
here I its sted. It then predileted her
safe arrival soon.
'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 submarine is out there obviously
for the sole purpose of violating Interna

using this country as a base, and its
wireless to send communication, ''
Capt. Hertz charged that Count von

Newport, R. I.. 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.
Naval officers say they expect a feet of German submarines will
blockade every Atlantic harbor from which munitions ships leave.
'The vessels sunk are:
West Point, British freighter. 2,413 tons, bound from London
to Newport News; crew of thirty-fie.
Strathdene, British freighTer. 4,312 tons, bound from New
York to Brest; crew of fifty.

York to Rotterdam; crew of thirty-five.
Christian Knudsen, Norwegian tanker, 2.583 tons, bound from
Tuxpam to London, via Perth Amboy; crew of thirty.
The U-53 began her depredations at daybreak this morning. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Rose himeseff'4.

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.
