Swiss Cantonal Authorities Act In dependently of Federal Officials. GENEVA, Switzerland, May S.?The oontonal authorities in the cantons of Berne, Zurich, Geneva and Lucerne have Issued orders that In the future no official German telegrams shall be posted In public hotels In these can tons. The Swiss federal authorities have taken no action against this giving out of German news. The measures are confined entirely to the local adminis trations. 300 MORE CANADIANS FALL ON BATTLE LINE OTTAWA. Ontario, May 8.?Name* of more than three hundred members of the Canadian contingent serving In France were contained In a casualty list Issued by the militia department today. Included in the list were the names of many missing soldiers of the X4th Battalion, believed to be captured by the Germans. TWO VIEWS OF BIG LINER SENT TO BOTTOM BY GERMAN TORPEDO. MORE THAN 1,300 MISSING OF THOSE ON LUSITANIA (Continued from FMrst Pasf > from Cork stating that forty-five more survivors from the Lusitania I have been landed at Queenstown from a drifter. SLENDER HOPE OF OTHER RESCUES. Of those who were saved, 595 were landed at Queenstown, and eleven at Kinsale, while fifty-two others are reported to be aboard a steamer. All but one of the rescue fleet of torpedo boats, tugs and trawlers, which went out from Queenstown have reported. There is a slender hope that fishing boats may have recued a few more. SCORES OF BODIES LANDED. In addition to the living brought ashore the bodies of 124 who died of injuries or were drowned, have been landed at Queens town. Five more are at Kinsale, and it has been reported that an armed trawler, accompanied by two fishing boats, has picked up 100 others. The work of compiling a list of those saved is progressing slowly because of the indescribable confusion at Queenstown, but apparently few of the first-cabin passengers are among the survivors. FIFTY-ONE AMERICANS SAVED. The United States consul at that port can account for only fifty one Americans saved out of 188 who were aboard. His roll does not include the names of Alfred Gwyne Vanderbilt, Charles Frohman, Elbert Hubbard, Justus Miles Forman, the author, or Charles Klein, the playwright. Mr. Vanderbilt apparently perished, according to a message to Ambassador Page from the United States consul at Queenstown. Of the Americans aboard, 106 were in the first cabin; 65 in the second, and 17 in the steerage. A number of survivors have been landed by fishing boats on Sovereign Island, in the vicinity of Galleyhead. Many are in a se rious condition, and it is feared that some will not survive. CARING FOR THE INJURED. The following message has been received by the Cunard Steam ship Company from its offices at Queenstown: "The Stormcock has landed about 160 passengers and crew. The trawlers Cock and Indian Empire have on board about 200; the tug Flying Fish about 100; three torpedo boats 45 and four dead. "We are putting up those landed at hotels and boarding houses, but cannot give a list of survivors for some time, as the passengers are in such a state that their immediate wants must be given first consideration." LIST OF LUSITANIA PREVENTED LAUNCHING OF ALL HER BOATS QUEENSTOWN, via London, May 8, 10:26 a.m. -The various craft that yesterday afternoon went out from here to the scene of the Lusitania disaster returned to Queenstown last night and early this morning. All of them brought survivors in greater or lessor number. It is now estimated here that 600 will be the outside number of those saved. No trace has been found here of either Alfred G. Van derbilt or Charles Frohman. 124 DEAD AT QUEENSTOWN. '1 he latest rescue boats to arrive are bringing mostly bodies of the dead picked up from the water at the scene of the disaster. The dead now here number 124, and many of them are women. The naval and military authorities of Queenstown are rendering every assistance possible in the removal of the dead and in assisting the injured to hospitals. The manager of the Cunard line has taken ample hotel accommodation as well as rooms in lodging houses, and here the survivors are being sent. Queenstown has never witnessed such a scene before. The dead are being conveyed to morgues and undertaking estab lishments, and numbers of motor cars have been brought into serv ice to take the injured to hospitals. The less serious injured are be ing helped ashore by sailors and soldiers. SURVIVORS HAUNT THE DOCKS. Roth men and women rescued, if they are able to walk, refuse to remain in their hotels. They haunt the docks, waiting and watching for friends and relatives. Many of the survivors are still bewildered from their terrible experiences, and their accounts of the sinking of | the Lusitania are not entirely clear. It is to be noted, however, that | one and all unite in eulogizing the manner in which the ship's officers ? behaved. Five minutes after the Lusitania was hit with the second torpedo . amidships she had listed to such an extent that the lifeboats on one side could not be launched at all. The work of getting as many people as possible, for the most part women and children, into the only boats that could be got clear was at once undertaken by the captain and officers and men of the Lusitania, and performed efficiently and with heroism. BATTLE FOR LIFE IN SEA. The scene as the big liner went down is described bv the survi I vors as heartrending beyond words. Rattling for life, the passengers ' called to relatives and friends or bade each other good-bye. The small boats which had got away from the side of the liner j picked up a good many survivors, who, with life belts or clinging | to wreckage, were floating on the surface of the water. Rut soon the boats all were crowded. These boats were in turn picked up by rescuing steamers com ing at full speed from shore points, but in many cases four and more j hours elapsed before the rescuers reached the scene. Tn manv cases the only work left for the rescue workers to do was to collect from ! the water the floating bodies of the dead. Several passengers were taken aboard trawlers, severely injured, only to die before they could be transferred ashore. 'heavy first cabin loss due ! TO CONFIDENCE IN THE SHIP LONDON, May 8.?The heavy loss of life among the Lusitania's first cabin passengers is believed to have been due to the calmness and self-possession they displayed in face of danger. Most of them were at luncheon when the vessel received her death blow and de clined to join the rush for the boats and life belts. They believed the Cunarder would remain afloat until assistance could arrive. A considerable proportion of those at Queenstown are members of the crew, including Capt. Turner, with the first and second officers. All the other officers are believed to have perished. RULE OF SEA OBSERVED. There is no evidence, however, that the time-honored rule of the sea, "women and children first," was violated. At least one of the survivors, a Toronto newspaper man, gives evidence that there was no panic among the crew and that the sailors acted promptly in get ting the passengers into the ship's boats. Apparently every precaution had been taken against a surprise attack by a submarine. Lookouts were on the alert constantly as the giant steamship speeded toward the Irish coast. Difficulty was ex perienced in launching the boats bacause of the heavy list of the Lusitania almost immediately after she was torpedoed. Several of the frail craft evidently capsized as they were launched or soon afterward. SAVED BY LIFE BELTS. Many of the passengers owed their rescue to life belts, which kept them afloat until they were picked up by boats. Among this number was Lady Mackvvorth, daughter of David A. Thomas, the Welsh coal king, and Julian de Ayala, Cuban consul general at Liver pool. Investigation has failed to reveal that the steamer was given warning of the proposed attack by the submarine, which appears to have been lurking off the Irish coast bent upon destroying the largest and fastest ship engaged in transatlantic traffic. The lookouts sighted the periscope of a submarine a thousand i yards awav, and the next instant thcv saw the trail left by a torpedo as it flashed on its course. I hen came a terrific crash as the missile pierced the liner's side, followed almost immediately by another which littered the decks with wreckage. The course of the liner was at once turned toward shore. FOUR TORPEDOES FIRED. l our torpedoes apparently were fired at the Lusitania, but only two of them found their mark. The loss of life caused bv the tor pedoes themselves and the explosions they caused mu?t have been terribly heavy. 1 he tragic freight of bodies taken to Queenstown bears evi dence of the havoc wrought. Many of those taken ashore were seriously injured, and more than a score died after they were re moved to Cork and Queenstown hospitals. A long line of stretcher bearers marched from the piers as tugs and trawlers arrived. The people of the Irish city opened their homes to those who had been saved and everything possiblo is being done for their comfort. Probably no event of the war has caused such intense excitenu in in London as the sinking of the Lusitania. Enormous crowds su: rounded the offices of the Cunard line all night, scanning anxiott the bullnins received from Queenstown. The company announced that an accurate list of survivors would be compiled as specdilv a possible, but that the immediate needs of those saved were being given first attention. The press of London expresses intense indij nation at the trasredv. MANY PROMINENT AMERICANS AMONG LUSITANIA'S MISSING NEW ^ ORK, May 8.?Many persons notable in the business . >r social life of New York city were among those whose names were missing from the list of survivors of the Lusitania made public the line here and at Queenstown. Of those not reported as being saved Alfred Ci. Yanderbilt is one of the most widely known. Inheriting the bulk of the estate of his father, estimated at $70,000,000 to $100,000,000. he is one of the ni"St wealthy men of Xew York, Mrs. Yanderbilt at her home here was trying to obtain any news that might show that her husband was saved. ELBERT HUBBARD MISSING. Elbert Hubbard, editor of the Philistine, author of cssavs and publisher at East Aurora, N. Y.? is known throughout the country as ''Fra Elbertus." He intended to conduct an investigation of the war and was accompanied by Mrs. Hubbard. Charles Frohman, theatrical manager and producer, whose name had not been included among the survivors, was another passenger. He was accompanied by Justus Forman, playwright and author. Charles Klein, one of the best known American playwrights, als, 1 accompanied Mr. Frohman. Among others whose names had not been included in the li-t of survivors were: EXPLORER STACKHOUSE ON LINER. Commander J. Foster Stackhouse, the British explorer, and head of the proposed British antarctic oceanographical expedition, which contemplated a seven-year trip to chart the southern seas. Com mander Stackhouse came over here last summer to seek the as sistance of Americans in the enterprise, and purchased the explor ing ship Discovery for the purpose. The fruition of the expedition was delayed by the war. NEWPORT NEWS MAN MISSING. Dr. F. S. Pearson, a well known American engineer, also one "6 the Lusitania's passengers, was associated with Commander Stack - house as one of the backers of the expedition. Dr. Pearson, who was accompanied by his wife, was well known in New York as a financial factor in Mexican railroad and electrical power enterprise A. L. Hopkins, president of the Newport News Shipbuilding Dry Dock Company, who was said to have gone abroad on a business trip in connection with shipbuilding. C. Cheever Hardwick of East Orange, N. J., of the firm of Burr & Hardwick, importers. Gerald A. Letts, an importer and dealer in antiques. Herman A. Myers, head of the feather importing house of II. & E. and S. Myers. Herbert Stuart Stone, elder son of the general manager of the Associated Press, is another American passenger not accounted for. Young Mr. Stone was well known as the one-time head of the book publishing firm of H. S. Stone & Co., and the founder and editor of the Chap Book and the House Beautiful, two successful magazines. Voices Sympathy for Friends of Americans "Murdered by Ger man Submarines." LIVERPOOL, May S, 1:52 p.m.?Alfred Booth, manager-director of the Cunard Steamship Company, made the follow ing: statement today: "I desire to send my heartfelt sym pathy, wherein all the Cunard directors and managers join, to relatives and friends of the American passengers murdered by the German ?ubmarines. "I am certain the whole civilized world is at one in grief for the sorrow and suffering caused, and in loathing for this treacherous attack on innocent lives, so many of whom were womeq and children. "Every possible step is being taken to relieve the immediate wants of th?j survivors at Queenstown after their terrible experience."

But if you buy based on circulation and the results produced, the rates of The Star are the lowest in Washington or any place else that we know of.
