Admiral Sturdee's latest command was the second cruiser squadron at tacheo to tho home fleet Tbis In cludes the cruisers Shannon. Arhilles, Cochrane aud Natal, with a number of light cruisers, a torpedo flotilla, colliers and transports. The Achilles, Cochrane and Natnl were sister ships, laid down in 1908 and liH4. of 13.6(50 tons, an average speed of 23.5 knots and carrying six 9.2 tnch guns, four 7 fc-lneh and twenty-tour 3-pounders. The Shar.iwm is 8 c-iiim t of 14.600 tons displacement. 1 . r s;ired is 21' 4 knots and her .irma men. consists of tho same tyue of ;,urs. but more numerous. Each ship coined about ,v0 men. In view of the admiralty's Btrlngenl policy with relation to reveali?Q the vLoi-e&bouts of the units of tho fleets now on the s,ea, it is only per missible to say that this was Admiral Stuvdte's most recent command. Rumor of English Loc6. Reference to the press bureau of the admiralty of the report repeated here from Buenos Aires that the Brlt irh fleet lost three ships in the en gagement with Admiral Von Spee s squadron caused a reiteration of the official statement quoting Admire Sturdte to the effect that none of the Eritish ships had been lost The preys bureau added, however, that re vised reports of the casualties -n the BrlUsh ships during the engagement i'howed seven men had been killed and four wounded. No casualties we it reported among the officers. The Buenos Aires di6patcn ouoteF private German sources as admitting that the German losses wou'd reach 3on0. According to the same sou-ce the Dresden was sunk eight hours after tl e sinking of the Nurnberg There is no official confirmation of this nor of the statement that a Japanese bijUcdron acted with ihe Britisn fleet, trapping the Germans bet ween the two squadrons and forcing them to scatter. Will Seek Karlsruhe. The inaccuracy of this lnfcrrrjtion is betrayed by the passage In the dis patch which states that n number Ot British wounded have been taken to Montevideo. This does Hot square uith the official statement that there v.ere but fOUt nun ITOUnded These naturally would b attended in the fick bay of the Bhlps to which they are attached. Admiral Sturdee's fleet is looked tu now to account for the German raider Karlsruhe, still at larj:e and fast building for Itself a reputation second only to that oi the Emden lib the Dresden disposed of. it Is thought Admiral Sturdee will then devote his energies to sweeping the South Atlantic in search of this In defatigable destroyer of commerce.

Indeed, they already are reported to bf seriously hampered by the loss of their supply ships and colliers.

Mrfl Jen nie H. S. Roche-Tufts, former wife of a Texas millionaire, and now the wife of Qorham Tuftsv Jr., one-time mis sionary to India, today on the witness smnd in the superior court told an amazing story' of an alleged intricu to place Tufts in the penitentiary' and deprive ber of her wealth. Mrs Tufts is being sued by Attor ney Francis S Bolond for attorney's fees She is resisting the suit, and charges Poland with conspiracy Tufts, ho testified today, was in dicted and convicted for crimes he did not commit.

Fred Crabbe is the pro moter. rl he wrestlers and the promoter got together yesterday afternoon. It took three hours and a half to settle all the details. At the end of thai time everybody who was a principal affixed his name to a long document as such principal and a lot of smaller fry affixed their names as witnesses and such like. The biggest point to be settled was the weight question. Yokel stood firm for 1 f. S pounds at ?, o'clock. Brown's manager wanted a pound on a give or take basis. Mike said "No " Then the Texas people want ed to set the scales at 158 1-2, and If either man turned up the beam, he was to be pronounced overweight Mike again said "No." If It was to bo a middleweight match for the cham pionship of the world, why that's what it should be. said the Dutchman, and not a "middlowelght" match at some other weight t length Yoke prevailed and the weight was fixed at 158 at 2 o'clock If cither man Is over he forfeits $200 to tho opposing side After another long discussion. It was decided that tho wrestlers' share of the receipts should be divided equal ly, on a 50 per cent basis. Moreover it was agreed that nei ther men should engage In a match before the date set for the big thing To react) this understanding required another hour, because Brown has al ready Blgned to wrestle Jack Ilarbert son at Opden on December 21 The Texas men finally agreed to call off the Harbertsou match, and that clear ed the table. Beginning next week both Brown .-'nd Yoke will do their gym work at the central fire station, so that a lim ited number of spectators may watch them. Neither, however, is devoting an extraordinary amount of time to mat work Both are giving practie n 1 1 - all of their attention to road work in order to get their wind in good ihape. Texas money is reported to have arrived in large chunks, with more ominK up. Indications therefore are l hat there will be a lively backing of judgment before the match comes off.

"Oi the rest of the front there is nothing important to report " Paris, Dec. 11 Attacks of unprece dented ferocity were directed by the Germans against the allies' lines in the region of Ypres today. The on slaughts were repulsed. Reports from the front state that the attacks evidently were in the nature of a screen to cover a retiring movement In the rear. Ofiicial statements from the war of fice leport that several attacks were made, three of which were completely repulsed. The Germans succeeded in taking the outer trenches at one point of the Ypres salient, but the British carried it again by a brilliant ly txtcuted counter attack later lu the day, expelling the invaders and reoc- upying the pits temporarily lost. The remaining attacks of the Ger mans were not carried through, the Germans halting their advance after reaching a point near the trenches of the allies and withdrawing under terrific fire from their supporting ra tillery It is these tactics of attempt ing to harass the allies by directing upon them a furious fire, while not carrying the movement throi.gh to a definite conclusion, that lead to tho belief that behind the wall of lead and t;bell all ib not well for the Ger mans. This is supported by the previously reported (but as yet unconfirmed) occupation by the British forces of Roulers and Armentieres, following the recapture after a furious engage ment of Paschendaele. , NATIONAL DEBT LEDGER TAKEN BACK TO PARIS Paris, Dec 11, 5:25 p m.

"This event marks the conclusion Cement That Stands I the Test Red Devil The Rock Cement Sold by every dealer in Ogden Union Portland Cement Company Gen, Office: Ogden, Ut I of the active operations in which the allied fleets have been engaged in the Pacific for four months. "Though it has fallen to a British squadron in the south Atlantic to strike the final blow, it was largely owing to the powerful and untiring assistance rendered by the Japanese fleet that this result has been achieved. "Had the enemy turned west again the honors would have rested with the Japanese and Australian squa drons, moving forward in the general combination. "The peace of the Pacific is now, for the time being, restored, and the commerce of all nations can proceed with safety throughout the vast ex panse from the coasts of Mozambique to those of South America. "The expulsion of the Germans from the east Is complete and with good and vigilant arrangements by all a return by them should be rendered extremely difficult and hazardous.
