London, March 31. —Reports official- i ly confirmed by the admiralty state that two British liners have been tor pedoed and sunk by German subma rines and a Dutch steamer sent to the bottom in a German mine field. Of the passengers and crew of the two liners 138 persons are missing. The crew of the Dutch steamer was saved. One of the German raiders was rec ognized as the U-28. The African liner Falaba, carrying 140 passengers, was torpedoed and sunk off Milfordhaven, the admiralty announced on Monday. She is the first big passenger-carrying liner to fall victim to German submarine at tacks. Dispatches to her owners indicated that the dea'h list of the African liner Falaba may amount ab&ve 100, in cluding more than forty passengers. A telegram from Cardiff said that 62 first-class and 34 second-class passen gers have been saved and that noth ing is known of the fate of nearly fifty more passengers. Only forty sis members of the Falafca’s crew of nearly 120 have been landed at Car diff. Several of the liner’s crew were killed by the explosion that wrecked her engine-room. It is now believed that other boatloads of passengers and crew were thrown into the water by the capsizing of their boats and went to the bottom. Thirteen men of the crew of the Liverpool steamer Aguila were killed or drowned when the Aguila was tor pedoed off Bishop islands, according to a dispatch received here from Fishguard. The submarine commander gave the crew four minutes in which to leave the ship, but shot a torpedo while the boats were being put over the sides. The clef engineer and the boatswain were instantly killed by the explosion and 11 others were killed outright or were thrown into the wa ter and drowned. The Falaba left Liverpool on Satur day for the west coast of Africa. Be sides her 140 passengers she carried a crew of 120 men. Her officers state that when the German submarine ap peared it whistled thrice as a signal for the steamer to prepare her life boats, but that before this could be done a torpedo struck the ship near the engine-room. Three of the Falaba’s lifeboats were swamped. Many persons aboard the vessel were thrown into the sea, where they struggled while the sub marine circled about. A fishing boat saved many of the passengers and crew. Captain Davis of the liner was picked up dead. BRITISH STEAMER IS SUNK English Merchant Ship Is Destroyed in Kaiser’s Favorite Hunt ing Ground.

COUNT WITTE. FORMER PREMIER, IN BERLIN BEFORE HIS DEATH. WASHINGTON TOLD OF MOVE Reported to Have Been Envoy to the Kaiser to Discuss Terms—Negotia tions May Be Continued—War Party in Russia Opposed. Washington. March 30.—The state department has received authoritative information that Count Witte, ex-pre mier of Russia, was in Berlin negoti ating peace with Germany prior to his suiden death. The negotiations interrupted by the decease of the great Russian peace statesman will be taken up anew by another representative of the czar. When this will be done is not known, but the Berlin government all along has realized that if it is to win In the great contest under way it can bt; only through the detachment of Russia from France and Great Britain. Indeed, the diplomatic plans of the German foreign office contemplate also the withdrawal of France from the war and consequent isolation of Great Britain. The czar and Witte were for peace with Germany. The party of Grand Duke Nicholas is for a continuance of the war with the allies. This party is the military party, and if its aims are thwarted there will be danger of a revolution in the great Slav empire and the overthrow of the present em peror. Exactly what terms Germany was willing to offer Russia as the price of withdrawal from the struggle, repre sentatives of the United States have not been able to ascertain. It is assumed the kaiser's govern ment would -agree to the reconstitu tion of the independent kingdom o? Poland. Undoubtedly also it would aid Russia in acquiring free access to the Mediterranean by means of con cessions by Turkey. The Germans had everything to gain and nothing to lose by peace nego tiations with Russia. If the negotia tions were successful, then a great step toward German victory would be achieved.

H, March 27.—The American submarine F-4 is lying sub merged at a depth of 120 fathoms two miles off Honolulu harbor, and it is feared the crew has been suffocated The vessel was submerged at 9:15 a. m. Thursday and failed to come to the surafee. The F-4, commanded by Lieut. Alfred L. Ede, carried a crew of 25 men. Attempts to bring the vessel to the surface with grappling hooks have failed. No signal bells have been beard from the submerged craft, and this fact leads lo fears that the sub marine’s tanks have burst, suffocat ing the crew with sulphuric acid fumes. The three other submarines of the “F” group statione • here, the naval tug Navajo and launches scoured the ocean for miles about the harbor en trance before trace of the vessel was found. Naval officials at first were hopeful that no serious mishap had befalled the F-4, but as hour after hour passed without anv trace vf it their apprehension grew The little flotilla of submarines was engaged in target practice. It was not regarded as unusual that the F-4 should remain under water for an hour or more in the course of the maneuvers, but when noon came and the vessel continued submerged anxiety began to be felt. This in creased as the afternoon wore on, and the other submarines began a systematic search. Most of the 25 men aboard the F-4 are married and have families. Rear Admiral Charles B. T. Moore, commandant of the Honolulu station, said the men on the F-4 would be in no danger of suffocation ordinarily for at least twenty-four hours, and that if the vessel’s air apparatus remained in good order the crew might live a week submerged. He said, however, that the F-4 lacked food supplies. The F type is about 400 tons dis placement, has a surface speed of 12 knots and underwater speed of eight to ten knots ar. hour. Lieutenant Ede was born in Nevada on July 4, 1887. He entered the naval academy when eighteen years of age and graduated well up in his class.
