French Capital Goes Wild as
Battalion of American Sol
diers Marches Into City.
PARIS, July 3. A battalion of
American troops arrived In Paris this
morning to parade on July 4. The
Americans were crowded by wildly
enthusiastic c r o w ds when t h e y
marched to Ncullly barracks, where
they are quartered. The Americans
arrived at the Austerlitz station at
7:4R o'clock.
Headed by their own band, the sol
diers carrying their rifles and field
packs, fell in and marched off to the
barracks. The crowds waved Ameri
can and French Flags. ' Hundreds of
Americans were In the throng.
As the troops swung thru the streets
French girls pinned bouquets and
American Flags on the soldiers'
breasts. Flowers were scattered along
the route. The band played "Yankee
Doodle," "Dixie" and other American
airs. French soldiers on leave
grasped the hands of the Americans
and marched beside them.
Several times groups of shop girls
on their way to work sllpod thru tho
police lines and kissed the soldiers
to their great embarrassment. Now
and then an American voice would be
heard calling out "hello boys," "wel
come to Paris" or "good luck." When
the regimental colors were carried
past, men bared their heads. The
Amerirans were greatly surprised to
see n number of children kneel In
the streets as the Flag was carried
bv. They were orphans from an In
stitution In tho neighborhood.
The soldierly bearing of the men
Impressed the military observers.
They were lean and brown and tho
new field packs gave them quite n
different apcpnranro from British or
continenril soldiers.

men to oopo with the situation was
intimated todf.y when the chamber
of commerce demanded to know from
Adjutnnt-'lenernl IMrkson why the
troopers hud not displayed more ener
getic activity hint night. Members of
the chamber were not slow to charge
tho soldiers with Inefficiency bord
ering on , cowardice, but Adjutant
General Plrksnn explained that Ins
force was handicapped by the small
number of troops avullublo at that
l'ollop Accused.
Tho police force, which numbers
sixty, also was charged with neKU
gence In attempting to quell the vio
lence. Of all tho Incidents of the
riot related today not one told of a
single act of bravery on the part of
the police or guardsmen. Anxious
citizens who inquired of individual
militiamen why they did not stop the
looting and murder which were going

eyes, received grins for their reply.

Life or Ship Lost.
Attacks Troop Ships This
Side of Danger Zone on
Night of June 22.
All Miss Mark; Grenades Used
in Defense; Wreckage nnd
Oil Prove Hits Made.
WASHINGTON, July 3. Sufe ar
rival at a French port of tv last ships
of the first American overseas expe
dition wus announced tonight by Sec
retury Daniels In a statement reveal
ing that twice on tho way across the
Atlantic, Gorman submarines at
laiked the ships In force and were
fought off by convoying Alnerlran
Tho Amerirans did not lose a man,
a ship or unlmal. At least one of the
undersea enemies wus destroyed.
Tho work of spies, thru whom the
Germans knew secrets of the expe
dition, is disclosed by Ihe news that
the first attack wus made fnr at sea,
before the transports and their con
voys rem hd the point at which
rendezvous hud been arranged with
the American destroyer flotilla oper
ntmK In European waters. Tho sub
marine commanders apparently knew
whrro and when to ex poet the Ameri
cans bound for the fighting lines In
France, and were asssmbled in force
to meet them.
It was Just a week after tho first
trf.ops landed that the last vessels put
Into a French port. They were slower
craft, cnrrylng supplies and horses.
Tho good news came to the navy
department late this afternoon from
Rear Adnfii.il Gleaves, commanding
the convoy squadron, and was made
public at once as an appropriate an
nouncement m the eve of tho Fourth
of July. Secretary Daniels' state
ment, which tells all of the story
deemed wise to publish, follows:
Fvrry Man Safely Landed.
"It is with the Joy of a great relief
that I onnnnunre to the people of the
I'nlted States the sufe arrival In
France of every fighting man nnd
every fighting ship.
"Now that the ' last vessel has
reached port it Is safe to disclose the
dangers that were encountered and
to tell the complete story of peril and
"The transports bearing our troops
were twice attacked by German sub
marines on the way across. On both
occasions the l.'-bnats were beaten off
with evcrv appearance of loss. Una
was certainly sunk and there Is rea
son to believe that the accurate fire
of our gunners sent others .to th
hoi torn.
"For purposes of convenience tho
expedition was divided Into con
tingents, each contingent including
troopships and naval escort de
signed lo keep off su'h German
lalders ns mm lit be met.
An ocean rendezvous had also been
arrunged with the American destroy
ers now operating In European waters
In order that tho passage of the dan
ger tone mli-'ht be attended by every
possible protection. ,
Kncniy Informed.
"The first attack took place at
10:30 on tho night of June 22. What
gives It peculiar nnd disturbing sig
nificance Is that our ships were set
upon st a point well this side of the
rendezvnii nnd In that part of tho
Atlantic presumably fre-3 from subma
rines. "Tho attack was made In force, al
tho the night miidn Impossible anv
exact count of th' lf-bou!s gathered
for what thry deemed a slaughter.
"The high seas convoy, circling
with their searchlights, answered
with heavy gunfire and Its accuracy
stands proved by the fact that the
torpedo discharge became Increas
ingly scattered and Inaccurate. It la
not known how many torpedoes were
launched, but flvo wero counted aa
they sped bv bow and stern,
"A second attack was launched a
few days later ngalnst another con
tingent. The point of assault was be
yond the rendezvous and our destroy
ers wore silling us a screen between
the transports nnd all harm. The re
sults of the battle wero In favor of
American gunnery.
Wreckage Proves lilt.
"Not alone did tho destroyers bold
the l'-bonts at a safe distance, but
their speed also resulted In ihe sink
ing of one submarine at least. Gre.
nades wero used in firing, u depm
charged exoloslve, timed to go off at
a certain distance under water. In
one Instil nee oil and wreckage covered
tho surface of tho sea after a shot
from u destroyer lit a periscope and
the reports make claim of sinking.
"Protected by our high sens con.,
vey, by our destroyers and bv French
war vessels, the contingent proceeded
and joined tho others In a French
"The whole nation will relolce tb.it
.io great a peril Is passed for tho van
guard, of Uia men who will fight our
battles In Franco. No more thrilling
Fourth of July clebrallon could havo
been nrrunged than this glad news
that lifts the shadow. of dreud fioni
the heart of America."
