Capture of Villacariedo Is

Spanish Loyalists, during past two
weeks after repeated drives against

Northern Spain to overwhelm
Madrid defenders.
By the Associated Press.
HENDAYE, Franco-Spanish Fron
tier, August 21.—Insurgents tonight
announced the fall of Villacariedo,
one of the largest cities in the ter
ritory the government has held south
of Santander.
Villacariedo is 16 miles south of
the insurgents’ north Spanish seaport
The announcement, made in a com
munique issued from insurgent head
quarters at Salamanca, said a num
ber of hills and many small villages
also were captured.
Retreating Defenders Dig In.
Retreating defenders of Santander
meanwhile dug in at Torrelavega, 12
miles southwest of the city, to keep
open the coastal road for govern
ment reinforcements from the As
turias to the west.
Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco
Franco’s legions, using the same
strategy which brought the fall of
Loyalist Bilbao in June, rushed to
cut off provincial highways before
advancing on Santander itself.
Franco gave notice that he ex
pected his army to reach Santander,
last government-held city stronghold
on Spain's northern coast, within a
few days. With good weather, he
said, his forces will enter the Biscayan
port by next Saturday.
Blockaded by land and sea, starving
Santander struggled wdth fortifica
tions. United States, French and
British boats were evacuating foreign
ers. Business life of the city had
ceased. Civilians helped with the
Bridges Are Rebuilt.
Yesterday Franco’s forces gave mo6t
attention to establishing a liaison
between his advancing columns and
to rebuilding bridges blasted in the
retreat of government troops. Today
the insurgents were pushing toward
Torrelavega again—and perhaps an
other major battle.
Only 25 miles of roadway remained
♦o be taken before Franco could
thrust his troops into Santander.
His strong columns are hammering
through fogs and rains that roll
down from the mountain tops, punc
tuated occasionally by a broiling sun.
The defender*—Basques, Santan
derese and Asturians—were favored
by the murky weather which protected
their mountainside positions from
Franco's artillery and planes. But
insurgent tanks, infantry and guns
moved on through the mud.
V. S. Aids 146 Flee Spain.
ST. JEAN DE LUZ, France, August
21 (£>).—The United States destroyer
Kane brought 146 refugees, most of
whom had Cuban passports, from
Gijon, northern Spanish port, to St.
Jean de Lu* today. Among the refu
gees w-ere several Puerto Ricans and
one Mexican.
Claude G. Bowers, United States
Ambassador to Spain, said the Kane
would return to Spain Monday for a
second group of Cuban refugees, at the
request of the Cuban government.
Refugees are being evacuated in the
face of the insurgent threat to conquer
the last remaining strip of government
held territory along the northern
Spanish coast.

to Determine Origin of
By thp Associated Press.
SHANGHAI. August 21.—The United
States Navy today officially • informed''
Japanese and Chinese authorities of
yesterday's shelling of the cruiser Au
gusta and began an investigation to
determine which side in the Shanghai
warfare fired the shell that killed one
American seaman and wounded 17.
The Nanking Central Chinese Gov
ernment "deplored" the incident, but
stated the shell that hit the Augusta
probably was not Chinese. The United
States Ambassador, Nelson T. John
son. said no official United States
action was contemplated now at Nan
king because the origin of the shell
was not known.
A special naval board of inquiry ex
amined witnesses of the tragedy, which
occurred while the flagship of the
i United States Asiatic fleet was lying
protectively in the Whangpoo River
off the heart of Shanghai.
Announcement in Washington.
Naval officers said the board's find
ings would be announced only after
exhaustive investigation and then
through the Navy Department at
Washington. They declined to specu
, late as to whether the shell was Japa
| nese or Chinese.
Admiral Harry E Yarnell. fleet com
mander, took occasion to deny he had
informed Washington the shell was
Japanese. He also denied he had rep
rimanded or protested to either of the
belligerents, but recalled that before
the shelling he repeatedly had warned
both commands of the danger of
firing projectiles over American and
other foreign warships in the Whang
Japanese officials were quick to dis
claim responsibility for the shelling of
the Augusta, insisting their anti-alr
! craft guns were silent at the time and
1 suggesting the projectiles came from
a Chinese trench mortar.

O. K. Yui. Mayor of Greater
Shanghai, announced the Chinese vol
, untarily had begun an investigation
to fix responsibility for the tragedy.
The flag-wrapped body of Freddie
John Falgout of Raceland, La., killed
by shrapnel which pierced his heart,
was carried ashore from the Augusta
by his mates, and his wounded com
rades placed in the Marine Corps
hospital. Pour were considered seri

Hundreds More to Leave.
Hundreds more Americans, mean

hai on the first available boats.
Already, about 2.000 have gone out.
One hundred and sixty-four United
States citizens appealed to the con
sulate general for help in returning
to the United States instead of going
to Manila, w'here nearly all American
refugees have been taken heretofore.
It was believed that the Dollar

McKinley, now carrying full loads of
fleeing Americans to Manila, would

become too dangerous.

500 American women residents of
Shanghai had declined to leave in

Americans Aid Police.
The American company of the
Shanghai Volunteer Corps was as
signed to help the police of the Inter

fortifications along Shanghai's famous
Bund, throwing up block houses, sand

The company is composed of local
business men, commanded by Capt.
C. J. Doughty, plumbing contractor
from San Francisco.
The American Cavalry troop of the
Volunteer Corps, commanded by Capt.
N. F. Allman, formerly of Rocky
mount. Va , was relieved of duty for
a needed rest. The troop had been on
duty several days near the North Sta

their ability to meet any emergency.
Marines Defend Settlement.
Soochow Creek divides the Japa
nese-held district of the International
Settlement from the main district,
where American, British and other
Occidental interests are centered, and
if the war comes to the latter area—
either through a Japanese debacle or
a Chinese attack—it will have to cross
the Marine front line.

The usual crowds of sightseers who
gather on adjournment day to watch
Congress rush through its last-minute
batch of bills, were at the Capitol
early yesterday and lingered through
out the day. But, aside from the
verbal outburst against Senator

thrill them during the remaining
hours of the session.
After both Houses bed given final
approval to the housing bill, the Sen
* i
at* took a recess to await House ac

deficiency supply measure. It en
countered some opposition in the
House because of the cotton loan
amendment, but was adopted after
Speaker Bankhead left the chair and

Senate reconvened and promptly
adopted the report after five minutes
of debate.
Lewis Is Applauded.
Just before the Senate adjourned,
Senator Lewis, Democrat of Illinois,
was applauded by some of his col
leagues when he made a plea that
verbal clashes, such as had occurred
earlier in the day between Democratic
Senators, be not construed abroad as
indicating "a divided America." In
conclusion, he declared:
"Ever faithful to our devotion to
America, we stand—and stand we
—a united people in a united Na

shield—and our oath registered In
heaven pledging our lives for God
and country," he said.
As the gavel was about to fall for
adjournment, the chair handed down
the greeting the President had sent
through Vice President Garner, which
read as follows:

Europe Needs Reorganized
Peace Machinery, Journal
ist Says After Survey.
Bs the Associated Press.
QUINCY, 111., August 21.—A news
paper editor who went to Europe in
search of a formula for peace told
his readers today the League of Na
tions should be reorganized.
Without the League, Europe “will
continue forever to be a yvelter of
diplomatic intrigue and the field of
bloodshed,” C. F. Eichenauer, editor
of the Quincy Herald-Whig, asserted
in his columns. But, he added:
"As constituted at present the
League is wholly ineffective.”
"Europe continues to feel that the
greatest disservice to the world was
America's refusal to take its share of
responsibility in the League,” the
editor continued. "European his
torians give Woodrow Wilson a posi
tion among Americans next only to
Lincoln and Washington.
"The League is failing only as the
nations that compose it fail. • • * Its
influence may be restored if the League
1s reorganized.”
Editor Eichenauer wrote from his
observations and conversations with
foreign authorities during a two
month tour abroad. He said he be
lieved a general European war is "not
probable • • • for several years.” He
"The people do not want war be
cause they know the never-ending
distress that war brings. The rulers
do not want war because they hesi
tate to take the responsibility and
consequences. The general staffs do
not want war because none is sure
that it can win. The experiences of
the past year in Spain prove that the
short, quick war is not possible.”

Senator Speaks at End of

By lh« Associated Press.
Senator Lewis. Democrat, of Illi
nois, expressing fear that the contro

be misunderstood in foreign countires,
said in the Senate yesterday that
America would "stand united" in
in event of trouble from abroad.
In a peroration which drew almost
unprecedented applause from his col
leagues, the Senator said:
"Sirs, proclaim to mankind that
though other nations may with their
partisan spleen rip their Institutions
to fragments—or by the swing of
sword and bayonet shiver the spirit
of affection, and slit their union of
life, driving all to the abyss of an

NANKOW, China, August 21.—The
battle for Nankow Pass thundered
into its second week today with three
fourths of this historic gateway to
Mongolia and ‘Inner Asia still In
Chinese hands.
The Great Wall of China, which
for 2,000 years has been a rampart
against Mongol and Tartar hordes
from the Northwest, was serving as
a barrier against the invader from
overseas, who today is going the other
way. Here it crosses the Nankow defiles
in 10 separate parallel walls.
A powerful Japanese expedition (es
timated by the Chinese command at
Nanking at three regular divisions)
for the eighth day hurled its heaviest
artillery blast at the pass defenses
with little gain. Chinese forces in
the Nankow area have been estimated
at 90,000.
Shells Blast Wall.
Big Japane.se shells blasted tons of
huge gray bricks from the wall and
white smoke puffs from its ramp„rts,
evidently from mortars, located the

Japanese infantry advancing labor
iously along a rocky ci;eek bed at the
bottom of the defile drew heavy
Chinese fire.
The battle at Nankow was not the
most important phase of the cam
paign in North China, where a Japa
nese army, steadily approaching a
strength of 100,000 men, was in con
tact at many points with Chinese
forces estimated at 11 divisions, or
some 150.000 men. The Japanese were
attempting to extend their conquests
of the past six weeks, which have
given them domination of Peiping.

the Japanese said it was going in
their favor.)

A terriffic five-hour artillery- duel
was fought today. Heavy rains have
impeded the advance of the Japanese,
who appeared to be taking their time,
content to blast at the Chinese with
artillery and air bombs until the
weather clears.
The Japanese have taken about
3 miles of the 12-mile bottle neck

bombardments the Chinese have given
wav only from a quarter to half a
mile daily since August 14.
