PROGRESSIVES MEET NOT TO
ENDORSE WILSON OR HUGHES
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 3. The
three way split that divides the re
maining Progressive party leaders
was emphasized today with the ar
rival of representative Bull Moose
from many states for the national
conference which opened at 11 a. m.
in the Claypool Hotel. ,
Three programs were represented
by the delegates. They were:
To let the national ticket go by de
fault and not hold another national
convention this year but to call a
party conference to be held soon
after the election and start an ag
gressive four year fight for 1920.
To endorse the candidacy of Pres
To order a national convention
and begin the best fight possible
against both old parties.
These three possibilities appeared
to have strength in the order given,
with the controlling element against
a national ticket and against an en
dorsement of Wilson.
"There are only two possibilities
for this conference to decide: Shall
we have a national ticket or shall we
not?" said John M. Parker, the con
vention nominee for vice president.
"There is no possibility that we shall
endorse Wilson or Hughes."
New York. Mrs. Eugenia Kelly

1 DEUTSCHLAND GETS BY THREE-
MILE LIMIT PATROL
Norfolk, Va., Aug. 3. Somewhere
in the direction of Germany, safely
past the allied warship patrol, sub
marine merchantman Deutschland
is boring her way through Atlantic
toward her home port of Bremen.
Reports coming into Hampton
Roads indicate the pioneer subma- 1
rine blockade runner has not poked
her periscope above water since she
submerged near the capes late last
night. At that time nearest British -warship
was five miles distant, ac
cording to tug Thomas F. Timmins,
which accompanied Deutschland as
far as the capes.
Expectation of thrilling chase and
perhaps some sort of fight in con
nection with Deutschland's depart
ure was disappointed.
The Deutschland appeared in the
bay, after spending the day in Tan
gier sound, 35 miles up, just about
sunset, and was cutting across to
ward the capes as darkness began to
fall. She was displaying red and
green lights close to the water, but
soon put these out.
Approaching the Cape Henry
lightship the submarine moved in
close to shore and held back while
the Timmins proceeded some dis
tance out, presumably to determine
if hostile vessels were in sight. Pres
ently she signaled and the Deutsch
land moved on past the cape. This
was about 9 o'clock.
The Deutschland drew near
enough to her pilot tug to permit the
shouting of farewells and the cheer
ing for America and then the rolling
water began to pile up between
them. She signaled briefly with her
periscope light. Then that .blinked
out and the tug turned back to Nor
folk. From Cape Henry came the word
long after sunrise that no sign had
been seen of the Deutschland. A
single disappointed British dog of
war lay off Cape Henry light and not
another vessel was in sight
