GERMAN NAVAL TERROR
THROWS 2-TON SHELL
Socialist Paper Tells of New Type
of Invulnerable Monster
Killing Ship
BERLIN, Oct. 2—The Vorwaerts,
the leading Berlin Socialist newspa
per, which usually possesses excellent
sources of information, and has fre-
quently, by its far-reaching connec
tions, given oflicial Becreta to the
world, publishes an extraordinaiy
■tory of a new type o£ motor drl\ea
wantlip which Germany has under
construction.
The details of this amazing ship
given by the Vorwaerts seem a litilu
lar-fetched, but if they are ourrect they
prove that while Gre;it Britain has
beun experimenting with internal com
bustion engines for the smallest ships
in her ileet (Jermuiiy luie already adopt
ed them for her most powenul, and
has evolved a type of warjhlp more
formidable than anything that nan
ever been dreamed of ami capable Oi
throwing v projectile weighing more
than two ton.-, and a half.
The Vorwaerts shea the following
details of the now ship: "The lmg.h
Is 284 feet; breadth, 45 feet; draft,
22 feet. The deck, which only pro
jects live foet above the surface of
the water, is proteoted by armrr of
such a thickness and arranged in such
a way that it appeurs impossible 1 tor
any projectile now in existence to
pierce it.
THROWS TWO TON SIIKIX
"The ship will have a single turret,
which Will revolve, and will bo sit
uated exactly amidships. It will be
armed with two mighty gruns, capable
of firing shells so quickly that all ex
isting weapons will be entirely eclipsed
by Its marvelous performance.
"The new gun has a caliber of sev
enteen inches, and the weight of th«
projectile thrown is two tons thirteen
hundredweights.
'•In spite of their size, it will be pos
sible to handle these gur.s easily and
promptly by hydraulic machinery.
The revolving turret's axle will be a
short mast, on which the captain's
conning tower will be placed. This
also will be protected by thick armor.
"This curious system of constructs n
is "rendei ed possible by the absence of
funnels and the substitution of gas
for steam. The new German ship will
have four gas-driven' motors, each of
eight cylinders, and developing 6000
horse power. ' Each motor works quite
independently of the others, and
drives a separate screw, giving a
speed of twenty-seven knots.
INVULNERABLE TO A IKS HIPS
"According to the expectations of
the German naval authorities, the new
ship will be capable of delivering an
attack on the largest existing- battle
ships. More than that, it is probable
that no existing 1 battleship could with
stand its onslaughts, so that Its ap
pearance is likely to produce a revo
lution In naval shipbuilding.
"Apart from its capabilities of deal
ing with the biggest existing battle
ships, the new ship will be invulner
able against attacks from future aero
planes or airships which may drop ex
plosives from the clouds owing to tho
peculiar construction of its deck and
Its unusually thick armor.
"Ventilators driven by electricity
will purify the a4r of the engine rooms
from any escaped gases. In case of
rough weather the ship is provided
with a new kind of miniature break
water, which could be affixed to the
deck before the revolving turret. This
contrivance is necessary owing to the
lew decks, which would be swept by
the heavy sea."
It is stated that the editor of the
Vorwaerts may be indicted on a charge
of high treason for publishing this
information.
ITALY AGREES TO PAY
SUCCESSFUL GAMBLERS
ROME, Oct. 2.—The Italian govern
ment has decided to gratify to the full
the Neapolitan gamblers who raised a
riot last week over the suspended pay
ment of their winnings, a sum of $1,
--500,000 being distributed. The govern
ment was not obliged to pay more than
$1,200,000.
The state revenue derived from the
lotteries averages $8,000,000 per annum.
From past experience the ministry feels
sure thiit the full payment will provt
a profitable advertisement, and will
probably double the number of specu
lators during the next few weeks. As
a matter of fact about three-quarters
of the population of Naples alone,
which now numbers more than a mil
lion souls, tries Its fortune at the lot
tery regularly every week,

NO ARRANGEMENTS MADE
FOR VICTIMS' FUNERAL
Plans for Obsequies of Elder and
Reeves Incomplete
A pitiful anxiety surrounds the
funerals of the victims of the gnat
holocaust of the early hours of Sat
urday morning, caused by the un
certainty of when the bodies yet re
maining In the debris will be found,
If they are ever found, and the al
most utter impossibility of Identify
ing those who have bom taken from
the ruins.
Tho body of Churchill Harvey-Elder
was removed from the Clara Barton
hospital, where he died a few hours
after receiving his injuries, and Is
now at the morgue of Bresej Bros.,
while the body of Wesley Reeves,
which was the first one taken from
the ruins, Is at the parlors of the
Boyle Heights Undertaking company,
awaiting the verdict of the coroner
before definite arrangements for the
funeral can be made.
Identification of the bodies Is thought
Impossible in a number of cases and
In all probability one funeral service
will bo held for the unidentified dead,
the time and place not having been
decided. If this plan Is carried out
the men who met their death together
will be buried in one grave, and one
monument bearing the name of each
will be erected.
No definite arrangements can He
completed while the uncertainty rc
mnlns regarding the bodies yet in the
ruins. As each body or portion of
what was once a human being Is
found it Is removed to the Bresee
morgue awaiting the final plans for
caring for the dead.
Separate funeral services will tie
held over the bodies of Elder and
Reeves. It was stated last night by
the mother of the former at Whlttler
that arrangements would be completed
today, and it Is also expected that ar
rangements for the funeral for Mr.
Reeves will also be arranged today.
A memorial service has been ar
ranged for Mr. Reeves by the Ep
worth League of the Boyle Heights
Methodist church, of which he served
as president last year. This service
will be held next Sunday evening in
tho Boyle Heights church.
DEED IS INEXCUSABLE,
SAYS REV. C. W. BUGBEE
At St. Paul's pro-cathedral the Rev.
C. W. Bugbee pnached in the absence
of the Rev. William MacCormack, dean
and rector, who is In the east attend
ing the general convention of the
church. The Rev. Mr. Bugbee spoke
at length upon the calamity and said
in part:
"We have all been shocked by the
terrible disaster of Saturday morning.
Perhaps—let us hope it was an acci
dent. But It seems that it was the
work of certain foolish or desperate
men. In all probability this happen
ing. If intentional, was perpetiated or
instigated not by the large body of
splendid and honest labor, but by men
who are misrepresenting it or by some
misguided men whose minds have been
perverted and inflamed by them and
wlio, thinking to do some glorious deed
or smarting under a senso of Injustice
have committed this heinous offense
against society in which a score of in
nocent men have lost their lives,
"The deed Is inexcusable and a das
tardly one and is to be utterly con
demned.
"Jesus Chri3t was not the friend of
the laboring man alone. He was not
the friend of the rich alone. He was
the friend of men as men. Whether
the fault be in union labor or union
capital, in a desperate villain or mis
guided enthusiast, the church, like her
Master, is to come with the cleaving
sword of eternal righteousness and say,
at tho risk of making enemies and of
being the recipient of criticism—'this
action or that policy is devilish evil
a'r\d is to be utterly condemned—but
men, laboring men and moneyed men,
tor after all ye are all God's children,
and all precious in His sight, 'this is
the way, walk ye In it.' "
RT. REV. MGR. HARNETT
ASKS PRAYER FOR VICTIMS
At the high mass at 10:30 o'clock
yesterday morning at the Cathedral
of St. Vibiana t*« Rt. Rev. Mgr. Har
nett, vicar general of the diocese, re
quested the prayers of the congre
gation for the victims of the calam
ity.
Charles Haggerty, one of the vic
tims, was a member of the Catholic
church and has one sister who is a
nun in the cathedral convent at the
corner of Ninth and Green streets,
who is one of the teachers In the ca
thedral school.
Immediately on hearing the explo
sion, which wakened ' them, thn c
priests of the cathedral made their
way to the fire to be In read
iness to offer the consolation of
their religion to any who might wish
it. On seeing that they coulu be of
no assistance at the fire they went
to the receiving hospital, where they
remained until the wounded had all
been brought in. These priests were
the Rev. Fathers Kirk, Riordan and
Haggerty.

According to Crabill, many of the
missing will be found at the foot of
the elevator shaft which he fell down.
"In the rush for exit," said Crabill,
"I noticed J. C. Galliher, Carl Saladu,
Harry Flynn, B. A. Jordan, W. G.
Johnson, E. L. Caress and Fred Llewel
lyn running to the elevator. I am al
most sure that they went down the
shaft to tho bottom and that their
bodies will be found in that section of
the islulding. There were several in
the bottom of the shaft when I struck.
"My theory is that many were caught
trying to get out by returning to the
upper floor, expecting to gain exit
through the main entrance. I know
they did not have time to escape that
way.
"As to the disaster being caused by
a gas explosion," concluded Crabill,
"there is absolutely nothing to that
theory, as there was no gas in the sec
tion of the building whore the explo
sion occurred. High explosives were
responsible for the disaster and noth
ing else, that I am sure of."
GADDEN SAYS EXPLOSION
WAS OF NITRO GLYCERINE
Foreman Stereotype Room Was
in Second Floor Near Alley
E. T. Gadden. foreman of the stereotype
department of the Times for sixteen years,
yesterday told of his escape from the ex
plosion and fire. Ha said:
"I was sitting at my desk on the second
floor of the building north of 'Ink alley,'
making out an Inventory of my department
when the explosion occurred. It was a long
roar and, as I remember it, there was only
nne explosion. I have had a lot of expe
rience with the use of dynamite, but tho
explosion that nieht was not of dynamite,
but of nltroflyceflne. I would swear to
that. The first thine I did was to wheel
around in my chair and I saw a sheet of
flame shoot up past the floor over 'Ink
alley.' The heat was Intense. My first
thought was of Grant Moore, a machinist
who was at work in the next room to me.
I understand his body has not been found.
"Myself and five other men working In
the department ran out of the room and
to a rear stairway. We found the stairs
so hot that we could not stand there, and
we turned back. Then I thought of the
men at work in the basement. 1 placed my
hand over my face and started down the
stairs to help them, but I was turned back
by the heat. The other men were groping
wildly about the room, when one of the
men hollered, 'Take to the roof.' We found
the stairs leading to the roof and made
our way over several buildings until we
reached one on Franklin street which had a
fire escape, and we climbed to the ground,'
PRAYERS FOR FAMILIES
OF MEN WHO LOST LIVES
Dr. Hugh K. Walker, pastor of the
Immanuel Presbyterian church, offered
a lengthy prayer at the opening of
the service yesterday morning In be
half of the many families and friends
bereft of loved ones in the great dis
aster. He expressed the hope for the
speedy apprehension of the perptrator
of the great calamity and horror, and
said that it would be a great le3son for
the city. Dr. Walker voiced the sor
row of the community, to those whose
loved ones had gone out never to re
turn to their homes. He dwelt at some
length on the uncertainty of life, and
said that the victims were called by
death as they were faithfully doing
their work without a moment's warn
ing of their fate.
Dr. E. S. Chapman, superintendent
of the Anti-saloon league, who occu
pied the pulpit of the First Methodist
church in the absence of the Rev.
Charles Edward Locke, who is attend
ing the Methodist conference, made
special mention of the horror of the
community at large at the great dis
aster, and said that such calamities
would be less likciy to occur as the
work of the Anti-saloon league pro
gressed. He expressed the sympathy
of the congregation with those who
mourned the loss^ of loved ones.
At the meeting for men yestcrdny
afternoon at the Y. M. C. A. building
Harold W. Kellogg said that all cit
izens, whether Christians or not, £tood
aghast at the calamity and that the
prayers of thousands of people were
being offered for the bereived fam
ilies. The Rev. E. H. Emmett followed
in a short address, in which he spoke
of the sorrow of the community.
Saturday morning the Rev. Dr. S.
Hecht of the Temple B'nai B'rlth re
fered to the calamity which had oc
curred but a few hours prevlousy, and
will again refer to the severe loss at
the Hebrew Now Year's services,
which will begin this evening. Dr.
Hecht in his Sabbath address on Sat
urday expressed the deepest sympathy
with the bere;ived families.
In many of the churches special
mention of the sad disaster was made
In the prayers offered for the bereaved
families that mourn the lot-s of loved
ones. Among those who offered these
prayers wore the Rev. Dr. Warren P.
Day, pastor emeritus of the First Con
gregational church; the Rev. A. B.
Prichard, pastor of the Central Pres
byterian church, and the Rev. A. S.
Phelps, pastor of the Central Baptist
church.
Th« Rev. W. D. Lanilis, pistor of the
Westlake Presbyterian church, piirt
a sad tribute to the lives of the fire
victims at the morning service yes

Regardless of color and creed, from '

Hpeakers, and thousands of people
joined In the prayers ,/or consolation
of the bereaved who may never know i

and husbands went forth to their duty
never to return.
In almost every church in the city
and the surrounding towns this voice
of sadness was a predominating tone |
throughout the services. Several if;
the churches counted prominent mem
bers among the dead.
SYMPATHY OF CONGREGATION
EXTENDED TO THE FAMILIES
Impressive Scenes During Ser-
vices in Christ Church
One of The most impressive scenes
was that in Christ Episcopal church
yesterday morning when, after pass
ing resolutions of sympathy, the vast
congregation that filled every part of
the church remained standing with
bowed heads while tlie Key. Baker P.
Lee, the rector, offered a special j
prayer, using the words of the cru
cified Christ, "Father, forgive them,
for they know not what they do."
The resolutions, which were adopted
with a rising vote which was unani
mous, extended to the Times the sym
pathy and fraternal affection of the
congregation in its hour of bereave
ment and voiced the stand of the con
gregation for law and order as against
anarchy and arson. The congregation
extended its co-operation for freedom
and Christian work to the Times and
to the press of the city, the resolutions
being signed by the Rev. Baker P. Lee,
the rector; George W. Parsons, war
den; C. A. Rockwell, treasurer, and
Ben Williams, vestryman.
The Rev. Cassius M. Carter, who has
tut recently assumed the pastorate of
the First Baptist church, spoke of the
disaster yesterday morning in grave
accents, alluding to the well-known
name of the city abroad and the blight
that would result from the widespread
reports of the disaster.
"Los Angeles is known around the
world," said Dr. Carter, "and we must
all bear the disgrace, yut every man,
woman and child should hold the lin
gering hope that it was an accident.
It shows that Christianity is not tii
umphant in our country, and it should
teach our churches to be more vigi
lant in the spread of the gospel. In
this day of sadness our sympathy goe3
out to the bereaved ones and those
suffering, in the hospitals and their
homes."
REEVES ONCE ACTIVE IN
EPWORTH LEAGUE WORK
Victim Found First Was Formerly
in Church Organization
At the Boyle Heights Methodist
church sorrow was manifest in the
large congregations at both services.
Wesley Reeves, whose body was the
first taken from the ruins and the only
one positively identilied, was one of
the prominent members of the church
and last year acted as president of
the Epworth league.
In the absence of Dr. W. E. Tilroe,
the pastor, who is attending confer
ence at Fresno, the Rev. W. P. Smith
preached yesterday, and in alluding to
the catastrophe he said, "If the prince
of demons were turned loose, he could
conceive of no more dastardly crime."
Last evening the Rev. L. G. Reynolds
spoke particularly of the sad death
of Mr. Reeves, saying that he was
known and loved In all the church
work, and that he was one of the
most enthusiastic Christians in the
entire church membership.
At the meeting of the Epworth
league last evening the sorrow of the
members was particularly noticeable,
and a memorial service is being ar
ranged by the league) to be held in the
church next Sunday evening.
In his sermon and prayer last night
at Temple Baptist church Dr. J. Whit
comb Broughor referred to the de
struction of the Times building and
the terrible tragedy in the loss of life.
He expressed profound sympathy for
the owners of the paper, and especially
for the grief-stricken families of those
who had lost their lives. He also
prayed that CJod might give special
keenness to those who had the re
sponsibility of discovering the mis
creants and bringing them to justice.
Among other things he said:
"Our city today is under the shadow
of a terrible tragedy. TMte destruction
of the Times building, entailing a ter
rible loss of life, Is a calamity that
should arousfi every law-abiding, lib
erty-loving citizen. It makes no dif
ference how much we may disagree
with one another In our commercial,
political or religious views, there
should be no place among civilized,
not to say Christian people, for jeal
ousy, hatred, envy, spite and murder.
It it Is proved that union labor had
anything to do with the awful destruc
tion of property and life last Friday
night, then I shall be profoundly sorry
for the cause of organized labor. It
will have received a blow from which
it will never recover In this city. One
thing is absolutely certain, the people
of Los Angeles and ultimately the
people of this country will not stand
for the lawless, anarchistic methods of
Russia and some European countries.
The citizens .of Loa Angeles do not
propose that this city shall be run on
the same basis that Ban Francisco la

managed today. That city in its moral
corruption and lawless methods has
been and is a disgrace to the. Pacific
coast and the whole country. It
makes no difference how many people
may have disagreed with the morn
ing Times in its views on various
questions, all fair-minded people will
unite in the most emphatic and posi
tive manner in condemning this crime
as the act of a conscienceless villain,
who, If discovered, deserves no mercy
at the hands of either God or man.
Everything known to human ingenuity
should be done to discover the authors
of this foul deed and punishment
meted out to them so swiftly and
surely that it will be a warning to all
other villains against the repetition of
such an act."
DISGRACE TO CIVILIZED
WORLD, DECLARES PASTOR
Rev. A. C. Smither Scores Ene
mies of Humanity
At the First Christian church the
pastor. Rev. A. C. Smlther, last night
in a prelude before his sermon made
the following remarks concerning the
destruction of the buildings of the Los
Angeles Times:
"Los Angeles is today in mourning
and disgrace; in mourning over a large
number of her worthy people who have
been slain by the ruthless hands of
assassins skulking in the dark and
seeking the blood of human beings; in
disgrace before a civilized world be
cause our fair city has permitted an
archists and bomb-throwers to remain
in her bounds and commit one of the
most dastardly deeds in modern tlmps.
"As a public journal, exercising the
rights of free speech, the Los Angeles
Times has been a fearless defender of
law and order and of industrial free
dom. Its persistent criticism of some
of the methods of labor unions has
aroused a bitter and unrelenting war
.against It by these industrial organiza
"tions. The indications are that some
of the devotees of these movements,
stung to the quick by the attitude of
the Times, have retaliated with bombs
and dynamite, and we stand aghast at
this awful crime.
"It is impossible to believe that the
respectable laboring people of our city
had any part in this atrocious crime.
It is very easy to believe that it was
done by the anarchists and assassins
who have wrought such shame In San
Francisco and who have declared their
purpose to unionize Los Angeles. They
have committed one of the greatest
crimes of modern civilization. Into
tho homes of how many honest, in
dustrious, law-abiding p«ople have
come the shadows of deaui as a result
of their heinous deed? Their folly,
apart from their crime, is most evi
dent. Where the Los Angeles Times
has had hundreds of friends hereto
fore, it will have thousands hereafter.
Where it has had unsparing critics in
the past, It will have admiring friends
in the future. The cause of labor
unionism will hereafter be associated
in Los Angeles with thugs, bomb
throwers anarchliti ond assassins and
suffer a blow from which It cannot
recover in years.
"These organizations of our city
owe it to themselves to denounce to
their utmost this awful crime, to put
forth their greatest efforts to appre
hend and punish the criminals and to
use all possible means to wipe away
from our proud record as a city this
foul stain.
"They ought to us? all their power
to maintain order and allay all pas
sions engendered by this appalling
crime They owe it to th:-ms lyes and
the community to repudiate the lead
ership of men of foul character and
anarchistic proclivities; for the most,
dangerous enemy of life and property
is the cowardly, skulking anarchist
who fights In the dark with dynamite.
"Our fair city should use every pos
sible means and spare no expense to
bring these enemies of humanity and
civilization to justice and to s ■« that
they suffer the most extreme punish

Kvery lover of free speech, of liberty
of home and fireside should contribute
his powers to tho removal from our
city these enemies of our city's life.
"The daily newspaper is one of the
greatest deterrents from evil. The
newspaper ought to be a leader in all
that makes for the betterment of the
community and of the world. When
ever the public disapproves of the pol
icy of a newspaper It can protect itself
by refusing to subscribe for It or to
patronize its advertising columns. But
to seek the destruction of the real es
tate and employes of a great metro-
politan newspaper by dynamite is an
unspeakable crlrrv.' Vnunclatlon

FELLOWSHIP AND CHURCH MEMBERS
SCORE PERPETRATORS OF OUTRAGE
By a unanimous vote the Los An
geles Fellowship in Blanchard hall
yesterday morning passed the follow
ingl resolution:
"Resolved, That the Los Angeles
Fellowship expresses its heartfelt
sympathy to the bereaved sufferers
from the disaster of Saturday morn
ing; that we condemn the dastardly
act of incendiarism and murder and
that we extend to the Times our deep
sympathy in its misfortune."
The resolution was offered by Henry
Harrison, vice president of the Fel
lowship board of trustees and sec
onded by David A. Harrison.
Reynold E. Blight, the minister of
the Fellowship, in a vigorous prelude
that was warmly applaudod by the
large audience that filled Blanchard
hull, condemned the outrage in out
spoken terms.
"The Fellowship stands unswerv
ingly against all violence and hatred,"
he declared. "Violence and outrage
bring about their own defeat, and a
cause is never helped forward by
crime, incendiarism and assassination.
No matter what attitude a citizen
may take toward the Times as an In
stitution, he must as a good citizen
unsparingly condemn the diabolical
outrage of Saturday morning. As
good cltizens^ let us fight for the cause
of civic righteousness as we see it,
but let us fight fair, and dynamite
and murder are always indefensible.
"At this time all good citizens are
under obligation to do four things:
First, to refrain from hasty judgment.
Let us know the facts and discover
the perpetrators of the crime. Until
the evidence is forthcoming we must
withhold condemnation of any man or
st of men. Second, we must maintain
a calm, cool, sober spirit, and frown
down any attempt to stir up passion
or prejudice. Third, we must spare no
effort or pains to locate the guilty
porsons and bring them to justice.
Fourth, we must continue the cam
paign of education until all men shall
learn that the cause of brotherhood
and civilization is not helped forward
by hatred and violent agitation. Only
brotherly kindness and love will bring
about the reign of brotherhood and
fraternity."
TRINITY CHPRCn TAKES ACTION

sented to the congregation of Trinity
M. K. church, South, on yesterday and

design, as unspeakably evil and das
tardly, and the cause' of justice de
mands that those responsible for such

ered at any expense of time and
money and made to pay the penalty
of so grave a crime against life anil
property;
"Resolved, further, that these reso
lutions be spread upon the records of
this church and a copy furnished to
