and left there pondog their reaoval to
shore. Thb i the story they told:
The Aret submnarine was seet to the
seat Sunday afternoon about 3 o'clock.
She was white and had a double super
I structure. libout a mile away the sub
t Marne hove to and approached to within
hailing distance of a Danish vessel mak
lng for the lightship to get her beerings.
t A man was seen to step to the deck
of the submarine. He talked with the
captain of the ship through a megaphone
and then went aboard.
I The ship's papers evidently were satis
e sectory as he left and allowed the vessel
to proceed on her course.
PFkes Nese Above Wter,
Half an hour later, another submarine
of battle gray color, but much masler
than the first, poked her nose above
water about half a mile to the south.
She flew the German naval ensign.
The submarine dived and re-appeared
intermittently until the Holland-Amer
lean freighter Bloomersdijkk appeared.
The mall boat made for the freighter,
but when half a mile away, sighted some
United States torpedoboat destroyers
rushing to the scene. She submerged for
about half an hour, hog periscope alone
showing above the water, but came up
again and as soon as the identity of the
war vessels could be made out.
In full view of the destroyers the sub
marine attacked the Bloomersdijk. After
giving the captain and crew time to take
to the boats, she fired shot after shot
into the deserted hull. As darkness came
on the freighter sank from view.
Most of the survivors from the Ste
phano, West Point, Bloomersdljk and
Christian Knudsen were quartered in the
barracks attached to the naval training
stations before being placed aboard the
train for New York at 11 o'clock this
morning. There were E6 in all. and none
in the throng succeeded in saving any
thing other than the clothes they wore.
Gives Detailed Aeoeuat.
Before leaving for New York to make
a report to his employers, Bowring & Co.,
Capt. Clifton Smith, of the Stephano,
gave a detailed account of the attack
upon the Red Cross Liner. He said:
"The Stephano was making good time
on her trip from Halifax to New York,
and was about three miles east of the
Nantucket lightship and forty-two miles
from the mainland when the submarine
appeared about a mile away.
"The weather was clear, but a light
haze was beginning to settle with the
approaching darkness. There was no sea.
"Most of the passengers were at dinner
and I was on the bridge. Until I saw
that streak of gray fashing toward my
boat I could not realise an attempt would
be made to intercept us. rive minutes
later I saw a flash from the gun on the
forward deck of the submarine and a shell
struck the water not ten feet from our
bow. The spray from It splashed upon
the deck.
"I immediately gave orders to stop the
ship, knowing that the safety of all on
board would only be assured in this man
ner. The submarine had evidently been
lying in wait for us in the lee of a large
ship I judged to be a supply vossal.
She was half a mile away when the first
shot was fired.
Remaine ItattenaRy.
"The submarine remained stationary for
a few minutes and then fired three more
shots in rapid succession. I needed no
further warning and gave orders to man
the boats. Several of the United States
destroyers were then in sight and I could
not realise that such a daring thing was
being attempted under their very noses.
But I didn't have time to do much think
ing; I centered every energy on geting
the boats away as quickly as possible.
"ahere was no excitement among
the ninety-four passengers and sixty
seven members of the crew. Of course,
they realized something extraordinary

"I have suffered with stomach =

see that she was after another ship.

Geed Distanee Away.
"When the submarine returned to
the Stephano we were a good distance
away. I saw her disanpear. under the
lee side of the vessel. Shortly after
ward I could ee figures walking up
and down the deck. Finally the sub
marine pulled away and fired about
thirty shots at the Stephano. Still she
didn't sink. She was a tough propo
sition.
"It was a wonderful yet tragic sight.
The Stephanos dynamos were still
running. The lights were still on. At
times we could make out when the shots
hit their mark by areas of darkness that
appeared here and there.
"The futility of sinking the Stephano

As Capt. Smith told his story, he strok

He explained the animal had been his

been to place him in the boat with him.
Capt. Smith denied a report that he
had received warnings that a submarine

"I sent my aide alongMe to make the

to go aboard, as no commufiation had
yet been had with the health anthorites.
"At 3 p. m. the commanding oCOcr of
the U-58, Lieut. Hans Rome, came on
shore in a boat furnished by the Birming
ham and called on me officially. He was
in the uniform of a lieutenant in the
German navy, wearing the iron Cross,
and stated, apparently with pride, that
his vessel was a man-of-war, armed with
guns and torpedoes. He stated that he
had no object in entering the port ex

no supplies or assistance, and that he

I was called up by telephone from Provi

asked for information as to the visiting
submarine. I gave him all the particu
lars and stated that the boat was going
to sea this afternoon, and that she had
undoubtedly been at sea for many days
Pince touching at any port. He stated
that under the circumstances it would
not be practicable for himself or the
quarantine officer to visit the ship.
"Following this conversation I sent my
aide to return the call of the commanding
offlcer of the U-3, and to request that no
use be made of the radio apparatus of
the vessel while in port.
"The U-63 got under way at 6:2 and

"The vessel is much larger than our

to displacement or length. These fig

"The freedom with which officers and

willingness to show all parts of the ship
were very surprising.
