Is Announced.
LUSITANIA AVOIDS ENEMY:
IS GUARDED BY THE ESSEX
British. 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

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. King, presi
dent of the Washington Railway and

to the bill to separate the railway com
pany from the Potomac Electric Light
and Power Company. He was accom
panied by W. F. Ham, vice president;
Capt. Charles Holm of New York, coun
sel; Paul M. Lincoln of Pittsburgh and
K. 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.

exports to Europe and to bring back
Americans now stranded there.

Peace Advocate Says England Wa?
Bound to Act as She Did.
NEW YORK, August Andrew Car
negie. one of the world's most distin

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."

Overworking the Boy Scouts.
From the Chicago Journal.
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.

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.
