Premier Asqulth, Lord Kltchenor, and
other members of the British cabinet
were expected to go to Paris late this
week or early next, to attend tho nllled
war council. It Is .possible the "very
high Kngltsh personage" referred to
was one of these. ,
The statement, Issued by the ministry
of marine, said that the Sussex's captain
saw a t6redo-nloiit-Km. yards distant,
and made h vain effort to maneuver hla

estimated that fifty lives were lost;
Another' liarty of Sussex ' survivors

Threo American passengers aro lesily
to testify that a torpedo struck the Sus

Among tho arrivals In Pailf were several-

The various accounts of the sinning
of the steamship vary In regard to her
position at tho time of the disaster. Ac
cordlnr to one version she was a little
n'.oro than halfway across the channel.
Other versions say that she was about
six miles fiom the French coast. The
embassy Is convinced that the Sussex
wns sunk by a torpedo, not by n mine,
ami that sufficient evidence on this
point was token from persons who saw
the track of n torpedo.
An Hngllsh passenger says thirty per
sons were klUed nboard and twenty
drowned through falling overboard as a
result of the shock of the explosion or
of Jumping for the boats.

Several British naval officers are said
to havo been nboard the Sussex and "to
have snt reports to the admiralty giv

ported that these officers picked up
plices of steel from the deck and are
forwarding them to the admiralty.
.Conflicting Reports.
A dispatch said that Elizabeth Bald
win was in a Boulogne hospital suf
fering from a broken leg and other in
juries. It Is possible 'that this may be 'true,
nnd that her father and mother re
mained behind with her nt' Boulogne,
though none of the Americans reacning
Paris tonight could recall having seen
the Baldwins alter the explosion. The
tear is growing that they may nae
been lost.
A l.lod's dispatch from Dover to
night reportedVthat Miss Baldwin, tne
American girl reported Injured, Is deno.
