French and German Cruisers All Heard by Radio Off At lantic Coast. XEW YORK. August ?A number of reports of ocean steamships bound to and from this port dodging' foreign warships heard by wireless off the At lantic coast were received here today. The \\ hite Star liner Cedric. bound hither from Queenstown and Liverpool, has put into Halifax, presumably fear ing capture. This brief announcement was received today by the White Star line here. The* Cunarder Mauretania arrived at Halifax at noon today, having been convoyed to the mouth of the harbor by the British cruiser Essex, which | picked her up south of Sable Island. The Mauretania carried 1,400 pas sengers, all of whom probably will bo landed at Halifax. Due in New York Today. The Cunard liner Mauretania left Liverpool August 1, and was due here today. She is the fastest transatlantic liner afloat. Her speed is rated at twenty-six knots. With the exception of the Aqultania. she is the largest i of the Cunard fleet, with a gross ton- I nage of nearly ifci.OOO, and represented at the time she was built, in 3907, the last word in luxuriousness of equip ment for passenger travel. The captain of the Cunard liner Pan nonia. which arrived in port during the night, said today that his vessel had passed through a zone patrolled by two ??erman warships. Radiograms in code passing between them were intercepted. Lusitania Racing- for England. Further word of the big English liner Lusitania, now dodging German cruisers In a rare for England, was brought here today by the oil tank steamer Tona wanda, from London and Antwerp. Capt. Hart said that he heard the Lusitania In wireless communication with the Brit ish cruiser Essex, saying that a foreign cruiser was following her and asking the r.ssex^ to stand by. Later the Essex went in search of the foreigner. During three days past, said Capt. Hart, the wireless brought news of the presence of British. French and German J?" ??"e w5? si*hted. however. The French liner La Lorraine, bearing nearly a thousand reservists bound for France, was seen seventy miles east of Fire Island. The Pannonia left Gibraltar Julv 25 and until she approached this coast the offices had no knowledge of the situa tion in Europe. Several hundred miles out she received a message from a Bri tish cruiser warning her to beware of capture. All lights except those neces sary to the navigation of the ship were Immediately extinguished. Passed Lusitania at High Speed. Early yesterday the Pannonia passed the Lusitania. The ship was dark ex cept for her running lights and was be ing driven along at high speed. Soon after the Pannonia was in communica tion with a British warship, which in formed her that she might go ahead without fear as there were several Bri tish ships within wireless call. Later the Pannonia's wireless operator heard German cruisers in communication with each other. The Pannonia brought ?04 passengers In the tlrn anil second cabins. The British steamer Kansas Citv. Which sailed yesterday for Bristol, turn ed about today and made for Perth Am boy, X. J. Net Around the Vaterland. The Hamburg-American line emphati cally denied today reports that the steamer Vaterland was being fitted out Sere as a cruiser or that she would sail ?n any mission whatever. 'Juards about the pier were still main tained today anil presumably as a pre caution against approach by small boats with hostile intent a huge net was siretch.-d In the water across the stern the vessel. Hessig of the T'ranlum line steam ?r 1 ranium announced at the Britls'i consulate today that he had intercepted yesterday wireless messages rrom the steamer I.usltania saving that two Ger man cruisers which had been pursuing ?lie I usitama had been chasen and sunk by two British warships. The Cranium reached port yesterday. 1 ranlum line officials who saw Capt i!?'" :if"-r hi" arrival here said todav that the captain had not reported inter cepting such a message and that thev Wf-r#- unable to confirm it. The wireless station at Savville, to uh.rh the alleged message from the Lusl tuiiM was addressed, according to Capt 1 H??ss;g. said today that it had not' re-' such a message. rJnJ, m,rS3a*e- Capt.

PROPOSED INSURANCE mnwEH. Union of First National and Citizens' Provokes Lively Contest. Announcement has been made of a ! proposition to merge the First National ' Fire Insurance Company of this city with the Citizens* Fire Insurance Com pany, a West Virginia corporation, and a circular letter urging the merger has ] been sent to all the stockholders of the former company. The union of the two companies is opposed by Robert J. Wynne, president of the First National, who. In a letter sent to the company's stockholders, has set forth his views on the matter. He maintains that the merger would be ruinous to the First National, and sei-erely criticises the methods of the promoters of the scheme in their attempt to bring about the union. Mr. Wynne maintains that any propo sition to merge should first have been brought to the attention of the board of trustees of the company, and not to the stockholders. SEPARATION IS OPPOSED. C. F. Zing of W. R. & Electric Co. Appears Before House Committee. At the meeting of the House District committee today Clarence P.

Baylor of New York, all of whom were prepared to speak at the hearing, which probably will run until late today. Representative Johnson, chairman of the committee, was authorized to ask for a place on the unanimous consent cal endar for the bill to abolish fees in the office of the auditor for the District of Columbia. TO HASTEN ITS ORGANIZATION. European War Situation Creates De mand for Federal Reserve Board. In the prospect that the Senate will confirm today the nominations of Paul M. Warburg and Frederick A. Delano as members of the federal reserve board, and with a large amount of work to be done by the board because of the European war, members desig nate of this branch of the government not now in Washington are preparing to come immediately. It is expected the oath of office will be administered tomorrow or Saturday, and that ot!?er steps looking toward the formal or ganization of the board will be taken immediately. The war situation has created condi tions that have been tentatively met by the Secretary of the Treasury as a re sult of administration counsel. The board will be confronted with the ne cessity of taking over these responsi bilities and to devise proper methods for the preservation of business condi tions and of the supply of gold in the United States. Movements of crops abroad will be one of the problems the board must consider, determining whether it will be necessary to finance the movements of the crops to foreign ports and how it may be done. The acquisition of an adequate mer chant marine also may be considered, incidental to the need for means to transport crops. PACIFIC SHIPS STAY THERE. Will Not Be Brought to Atlantic for Service. NKW YORK. August S.?Julius Krutt sclinitt, chairman of the Southern Pacific company, issued a statement today saying there wax no truth in the report that negotiations were In ; progress between the I'nited States tfovernment and the Pacific Mail I Steams-hip Company for the transfer of the steamships Manchuria, Mongolia, Ko-ea, Siberia and China of the Pacific mail fleet to transatlantic service to be operated under government protec ! tion to take care of cotton and other exports to Europe and to bring back Americans now stranded there. CARNEGIE APPROVES STAND. Peace Advocate Says England Wa? Bound to Act as She Did. NEW YORK, August Andrew Car negie. one of the world's most distin guished peace advocates, approves of England's course in the present crisis. In a cable message from Scotland to the New York E\enlng Post he says: "Germany having declined Britain's proposed peace conference, and then having asked Britain to agree to her march through Belgium, Britain was bound to decline, and to declare that she would protect Belgium by land and SAYS SEA FIGHTS Rear Admiral Mahan, U. S. N., Retired, Discusses Proba bilities in Europe. ALL-BIG-GUN WARSHIPS TO UNDERGO REAL TEST Germany, England, Enssia, France and Other Power* Likely to Bat tle in Mediterranean. NEW YORK. August 6.?"The most decisive strokes in the general European warfare will be delivered, in my belief, upon the sea, rather than upon the land." declared Rear Admiral Alfred T. Mahan, retired, in an interview with a reporter at his home near Quogue, L?. I. "I look for an all-around naval conflict which should teach many things about sea-flghting craft, about guns and about armament." "What will happen," he was asked, "when dreadnought meets dreadnought, when the tremendously powerful modern super-battleships, with their fourteett inch guns and their thousand or more men to the ship, get together? Will the problem of their worth, their effective ness, be settled?" "A. B. G." Problem Discussed. "The problem of the A. B. G. for 'all big gun') lliip is a highly interesting one," Admiral Mahan replied, 'and wc may learn through this war of its worth. But the lesson will not be shown in any ship-for-ship fight; dreadnought against dreadnought will be no different than one old frigate against another old frig ate in the days gone by. "The really interesting and instructive combat would be between, say. a dozen dreadnoughts and a dozen and a half smaller vessels, for instance, of ordinary battleship size. We might then see whether or not the twelve and fourteen - inch gun is of so great importance as has lately been assumed-" The admiral intimated that from what data he had been able to obtain- it was likely that the very big gun might prove to be a much overrated weapon. "In the Russo-Japanese war, I believe ?and many other naval officers agree with me?that the bulk of the damage was done by the eight and ten-inch guns," he said. "In that conflict I think it was shown that the volume of flre, the number of hits, was much more important than the single shots from great guns, and I believe this war will prove the same thing. Institutes a Comparison. "For example, imagine a single shot from a fourteen-inch gun hitting an enemy's ship. It does tremendous dam age, certainly. But, one might almost say. It does too much damage. That is, it exerts more power than is necessary to cripple the adversary. Two shots from eight-inch guns would be much more effective in battle than one four teen-inch shot. "I cannot say that I agree with the idea of the A-B-G ships. England, of course, originated the dreadnought, and cackled like a chicken that had laid an egg, and got every one else building, A-B-G's. But I think all the navies are | coming around to what we call the 'mixed battery* ship, and that is as it should be. "The original dreadnought idea was a ship with all big guns of twelve or fourteen-inch caliber, and a few small guns, say three or four-inch caliber, for use against torpedo boats. But the size of the lesser battery has been creeping up year by year, until our new est ships have six-inch guns with the fourteens. and. 1 understand, some ves sels have eight-inch guns, which are prety sizable weapons for any use. "I believe this war will show that a well distributed flre by the medium sized guns will do much more damake than the slower single shots of the big fellows." "May this possibly mean a return to the use of smaller-caliber guns?" Admi ral Mahan was asked. "The results of the naval battles will tell. That cannot be said now," he re plied. The admiral declined to comment upon the comparative fighting ability or gun nery of the nations involved or to be in volved. Nor would he advance any the- j ories as to the damage likely to be in- , flicted upon the extremely large fighting craft by submarines or by air craft. "The submarine questic and the air ship question?neither evt. tested out thoroughly?will doubtless receive con siderable elucidation in the conflicts to come." he said. "There would be no use predicting what effect either of those at tack methods may have. We shall prob ably learn much about them in a short time." PBICES AT CITY FISH WHARF.

The American tendency to overwork a good thing is showing in the case of the Boy Scouts. Not content with using the youngsters as spccial police men. they have been set to the work of cleaning up malodorous alleys In some cities and towns, and a scheme was even broached to use them as bag gage-hustlers for a large convention. This is not merely going too far It Is traveling in the wrong direction. To let Boy Scouts keep order at patriotic 1 celebrations is appropriate and wise To have them bear their part In any general clean-up is well enough though these, spectacular scrubbing bees seldom accomplish much for sani tation. But to turn the lads Into amateur scavengers or baggage hand lers is another story. It smacks far too much of the system of that prac tical gentleman who managed Dothe boys Hall.

I GRAIN AND PROVISIONS. CHICAGO. CHICAGO, August 6.?Readiness with which offerings were absorbed had a bull ish effect today on wheat. Apparently speculators could not be turned from the prospect that huge exports from the United States would be certain before a , great while. Cables from Liverpool re- j ferred to better terms granted by the British government for insuring war risks on foodstuffs. At first, however, , prices seemed to waver on account of selling by receiving nouses here. Weak ness was chiefly noticeable in the nearby delivery, September. After opening 1% lower to U advance, the market overcame all the losses, and in the deferred op tions scored net gains that amounted to 1H. Expected rains in the domestic drought j region weakened corn at the outset, but a decided rally ensued when wheat turned strong. Besides eastern, cash de mand was again of an urgent character. The opening, which was the same as last night to % lower, was followed by a sub stantial advance all around. Trading in oats was quite limited. Val ues were governed mainly by the action of the corn market. Packers were credited with having taken to the buying side of provisions. First transactions ranged 5a35 higher, and there were additional gains later. Hog receipts at western points dropped off to a total that was only a third as large as a year ago. Lack of selling pressure was responsible j for a continued rise in quotations. About < the middle of the session May wheat touched 1.06H, a rise of 3 cents a bushel compared with last night. The net gains for September and December at the same time were, respectively, 1% and 2%. Reports that eastern exporters were try ing to resell wheat to Chicago acted as a drag on the nearer months. It was also asserted that elevator interests here were more concerned about getting money to finance wheat than in any question about carrying charges. Butter?Unchanged.
