TURKS SINK THREE OF ALLIED FLEET Two British and One French Warship Strike Floating Mines in Dardanelles. v HARD FIGHT IN THE HARROWS Land Forts Rain Terriffic Fire on Ten Battleships and Lighter Craft Russian Squadron Near Bosphorus. , London, March 20. The British bat tleships Irresistible and Ocean and the French battleship Bouvet were blown up by floating mines while engaged "with the remainder of the allied fleet in attatcking the forts in The Narrows of the Dardanelles Thursday. Nearly all members of the crews of the two British ships were saved, having been transferred to other ships under a hot fire, but an internal explo sion took place on -board the Bouvet after she had fouled the mine and most of her crew wras lost. The Bouvet sank within three minutes of the time that she hit the mine. Set Mines Adrift. The waters in which the ships were lost had been swept of mines, but the British admiralty asserts that the Turks and the Germany set floating containers of explosives adrift and these were carried down by the cur Tent to the allied ships gathered inside the entrance of the straits. All the ships that were sunk were -old ones, the Bouvet having been com pleted nearly twenty years ago and the Ocean and Irresistible in 1900. The sunken British ships are being re placed by the battleships Queen and Implacable, vessels of a similar type. They are said to have started some .time ago for near Eastern waters ,in anticipation of just such losses as have now occurred. Two Other Ships Damaged. Two other ships engaged in the fight ing, the British battle cruiser Inflexi ble and the French battleship Gaulois, were hit by shells and damaged. The British casualties, according to the British official report, were not heavy. The damage done to the Turkish forts by the heavy bombardment has not yet been ascertained. It is stated that the operations against them are continuing. Russians Approach Bosphorus.

A scarcity of cold storage room will result in mak ing lower prices for eggs, 'butter and poultry this spring and higher prices next fall and winter, produce men here declare. Cold storage warehouses have un usually large quantities of meats and apples for this time of year and this accounts for the scarcity of room. The stocks of hog products in Chicago warehouses at the beginning of this month were 34 per cent larger than a .year ago, and owners of apples put in storage last fall have not been able to market them as extensively as they expected. The same conditions are said to exist in other cities. The purchase of eggs, butter and poultry in April, May and June, when they are most plentiful, to hold for the fall and winter trade,, when produc tion is least, serves to hold spring prices up and winter prices down in ordinary years, but storage this year will be less than usual, produce men say, unless some of the cold storage room now in use is vacated soon.

DENIES FREEDOM TO THAW Ordered Sent Back to Matteawan by Justice Page Saved by Habeas Corpus Writ. New York, March 17. Another long legal battle oyer Harry Thaw was made certain yesterday when Justice Page in the supreme, follow ing Thaw's acquittal Saturday of the charge of conspiring to escape from Matteawan, ordered Thaw returned to the hospital for the criminal insane tinder the original commitment from Justice Dowling. Thaw had demanded that he be re turned to New Hampshire, from which state he was extradited for trial on the conspiracy charge. Losing there, he won on another point, however, when his counsel,, anticipating an ad verse decision by Justice Page, ob tained from Justice Bijur of the su preme court a writ of habeas corpus, returnable Friday. Meantime Thaw must be kept in the Tombs prison. It was a close call for Thaw, since plans had been considered by the state for returning him at cnce to his long time residence at Matteawan. Asylum attendants were in the court room ready to rush him there by mo tor car the moment the motion for a return to New Hampshire was denied. But the writ of habeas corpus served half an hour before on Warden Han ley of the Tombs prevented this. HE SAVED VALUABLE JEWELS Catholic Priest Arrives in New York From City of Mexico With Priceless Gems. New York, March 17. A king's ran som in jewels, blazoned in the royal eagles of Spain at the time of Charles V, the most powerful monarch of the Sixteenth century, lies under guard at the customs house here awaiting appraisal. The gems, set in gold on white and purple robes and mounted on two gold en crowns, were brought into New York by a Catholic priest, clad in shabby clothes, who fled from the City of Mexico a month ago, made his way to Vera Cruz and sailed aboard the Steamer 'Montevideo. The Montevi deo reached New York March G with this priest and six other fugitive priests who had been banished from Mexico by General Obregon. From the depths of a battered suit case the gems and robes were tum bled out upon the dock for inspection by the customs authorities.

Un der guard they were taken to a safe deposit vault, where they were locked up and special watchmen detailed to guard them. Rough estimates placed their value as high as $500,000.

A protest was sent by the United States today to General Villa against the collec tion from Americans or other foreign ers of part of a special tax of 1,000,000 pesos levied at Monterey. The British embassy had brought to the attention of the state department a report -just received from Monterey saying that the British-owned light and power company there had been called upon to pay $35,000 as its share of the new tax. Just how the general assessment was to be apportioned the state de partment was not informed, but the unufcrsianuing wa.3 iua.t Jjreiit;ra.i viixo, had laid an omnibus tax on the city, leaving it to the authorities there to raise the money in whatever way they saw fit. The order was dated March 16, it was said, and fifteen days wis the time given in which to raise the money. The department has protested prev iously, notably in the case of the tax which General Obregon tried to col lect in Mexico City recently, against any of the Mexican factions forcing contributions from foreigners. Gen eral Obregon heeded the protest and the tax was removed as far as foreign ers were concerned. Other advices to the department to day said living conditions in Mexico City are improved, that rail com munications to El Paso probably will be opened in four or five days, and that fighting between Carranza and Villa forces has begun near Tampico.

STOP ADVANCE l!i CHAMPAGNE' But French Troops Continue to Hold Important Heights Against Coun ter Attacks Fighting in Vosges Slackens. London, March 19. The next im portant battle on the western field, it is believed, will take place along the -River Yser, held on one side by the re cently reorganized Belgian army and on the other by the Germans. As the floods have subsided, the Bel gians, supported by the warships of the allies, already have pushed their line slightly forward, and this is al most certain to lead to counter-attacks by the Germans and a general engage ment, as has been the case when sim ilar movements were initiated else where "along the front. An artillery duel in the way of preparation has commenced. There may be a slight delay while the Germans are awaiting for rein forcements from Germany, for they have been using most of their reserves to counter-attack the British troops at St. Eloi and Nueve Chapelle and the French north of Arras, but that a big clash will soon come nobody doubts. The contest for the spur of Notre Dame de Lorette is still injjragress, and, according to Berlin,,, further at tempts of the French to' advance in Champagne, where they captured an important ridge north of Le Mesnil, have been repulsed. The fighting in. the Argonne forest and the Vosges has slackened some what, owing doubtless to the return of wintry weather conditions. There is little news from the East ern front, and beyond the fact that the Russians again have crossed the East Prussian line in the far North east,, near Tilsit, and that they are continuing their offensive against Aus trians in Bukowina, there is no change in the situation. British Suffer Loss. Evidence is accumulating of the heavy British losses in the recent fighting in Flanders. Lord Claud Ham ilton, addressing a meeting in London last night, said the papers were not giving full lists of the losses. His own regiment, the Grenadier Guards, he de clared, lost their colonel and sixteen officers killed and wounded, and of 1,100 men, the finest in the army, only three hundred survived. The Cameronians also seemed to have been almost totally wiped out; their lists of killed and wounded were apalling. Fighting for Positions. London, March 18. At present the armies of Belgium, Great Britain and France are fighting for the hills and other points along the long front which will be of the greatest advantage to the army holding them when the ad vance begins. According to the French communication, the Belgians continue to improve their positions in Flanders, and the French to the north of Arras and in Champagne have add ed eminences to their gains which are of some importance. The French and German official communications, however, are so con tradictory that it is difficult to decide whether any "change is being made generally in the dispositions of the two armies. The optimism which pervades the Western Allies is shared by the Rus sians. All the Petrograd correspond ents of the London papers lead the public to believe big events are im pending. It is apparent the Russians again and not the Austrians are on the move, particularly at Smolnik, on the River San, where it emerges from the Carpathians, while in Bukowina, according to unofficial dispatches from Bucharest, the Austrians have been defeated in a battle which has been raging along the entire front. London, March 17. With the in creasing activities of the British, French and Belgian armies, the re appearaace on the coast of Belgium of British and French warships and the time drawing near for a big effort in the west, the public is following with renewed interest the news of the op erations. The Belgians, who "are being sup ported by the warships of the allies, have consolidated the ground which they have won in the last few days, while the British have done likewise with the strip of territory which they took from the Germans near Nueve Chapelle and have recovered most, if not all, of the trenches which they lost in the region of St. Elio.
