REFUSED HALT FOR SUBMARINE Sinking of Shin and Loss of American Lives Justified by Captain's Action. TRIED HARD TO ESCAPE FATE. Tragedy Will Have No Effect on U.S. Negotiations With Germany. London, July 2. Captain Trickey, of te Armenian, in an interview said he surrendered to the German submarine only when his ship was afire in three places, her enginf s were out of action, and a dozen of the crew had been killed by shrapnel fire. Eleven of the members of the crew who perished, Captain Trickey said, were Americans. "The submarine, a3 a signal for us to stop," said Captain Trickey, "first put a couple of shots over our bows when we were four miles off, I put my stern to him and ran for it. "The submarine then began to shell us in earnest, the shrapnel bursting all around us, killing sever al of the crew and knocking others overboard. I soon realized the ene my was gaining on us, but I did not promise to surrender without a strug gle but my steering gear was soon hit and placed out of commission. Then a shell fell into the engine room and another carried the Marconi house away. Still another cut down the funnel and disabled the stokers. "By this time the ship was on fire in three places and I decided to sur render. We had resisted the enemy for an hour, and twelve or thirteen men lay dead on the deck. "The submarine commander then j forced me to clear the ship and at seven minutes past eight the Arme nian went down shattered by two torpedoes. "I must say that the submarine commander showed us every fairness after we had given up, picking up many of the crew who, because of damaged boat, had fallen into the water. The Austro-German drive north ward into roiana irom uaucia is gaining momentum and England is puzzled as to whether the German purpose is to make this the main ef fort or to continue a concentrated of fensive to force the Russians from the southeast tip of Galicia. Whatever the ultimate object is, ! fighting along the Guila Lipa river has not abated and Berin not only records progress here but also farth er north in the arc around Lemberg and along what has become the northern front, between the Vistula and the Bug. The Austro-German forces on this front are estimated at 2.000.000 and their progress has been rapid. They have crossed the forest fringing the Tanew river and are not far from the Zamosc fortress, 25 miles north of the Galicia frontier. Only a hundred miles to the north is the great Russian base Brest- L'tovsk, linked with Warsaw by im portant railways and lying almost due east of the Polish capital. The development of the Galician campaign hss created a situation en tirely unexpected by the allies. A few months ago the Russians were at the Carpathian passes and in the spring confident predictions were made in England and France that Hungary soon would be over run. The British press has been op timistic for weeks that the Russians would turn, but it now franklycon cedes that the invasion of Russia is serious. The papers, however, put faith in Russia's campaign for the production of more munitions. The Arras section maintains its rep utation as the storm center of the west, but although losses are piling up daily neither side delivers a de cisive blow. An Athens dispatch tonight says the allies have taken the Turkish stronghold of Krithia, on the Galli- poli peninsula, to the western edge of which Gen. las Harailt8B?s report of yesterday carritd his forces. Gratification over the British prog ress in Ga'lipoli is hardly more pro nounced than the realization of the tremendous task England and France face in their attempt to clear the Turks from natural defenses bar ring the way to Constantinople. The first stroke against British naval craft in home waters for some time is announced by the admiralty tonight, which says that fourteen men have been lost by the mining or torpedoing of the destroyer Light ning, an old craft laid down two de cades ago. Boone Monument. , In commemoration of Daniel Boone's entry into Kentucky 165 years ago at the head of the first pioneer band of . sjttlers from the Yadkin River valley, North Carolina, and his subsequent achievements in blazing a permanent trail and estab lishing the settlement of Boones boro, thus helping to found the first great commonwealth west of the Alleghnnies, a grateful people of Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina, Tuesday unveiled and dedicated with appropriate cere monies at Cumberland Gap, the Boone Trail Monument.

The first event toward the cele bration of the glorious fourth was the Elk's picnic at Campbell's cave yesterday. The attendance was not entirely confined to members of the lodge, but a large number of out siders were present. Nearly three hundred and fifty attended. The whole crowd was in the gayest mood and everyone had a fine time. The big barbecue dinner was the feature of the occasion. After dinner there was a lot of post prandial oratory. Women Aroused. That the case of Madeline Ferola, the Italian woman now facing the death chair in Sing Sing, is even a more flagrant instance of the miscar riage of justice than the Frank case, is declared by a number of promi nent women in New York who met to formulate plans to keep Mrs. Ferola from the chair if possible. Farmer Badly Hurt, Sidney Hancock had his left leg broken Thursday afternoon at his farm near Rich. A hay fork fell upon it, crushing and mangling the leg until amputation may be neces sary. ELECTION MONDAY New Officers to Be Chosen For Hopkinsville B. M. A. DOUBLE NOMINATIONS MADE. Voting To Be By Ballot at Meet ing Place From 9 to 4. The annual election of oflicers for the H. B. M. A. will be held Monday between the hours of 9 a. m. and 4 p. m., in the offices of the association. President CooDer has designated R. T. Stowe and G. E. Dalton to con duct the election and official ballots have been printed, which will be giv. en out to those entitled to vote. All members not 3 months in arrears are entitled to vote. There are now about 160 members. Two nominations each have been made for president, first and second vice-presidents, and treasurer. Twelve directors are to be elected and 24 nominations have been made. Other names may be written on the ballots in spaces left for tnat pur pose. But little interest is seemingly being taken in the positions, which carry with them considerable respon sibility. The new directors will elect a secretary at their first meet ing. As Lemon Sees It Mr.McDermott is a nice gentleman, learned in the law and capable of making a good governor, but look ing out over the situation, we fail to believe that he has any chance to re ceive the democratic nomination, and more especially since Hon. Jas. Ed wards became a candidate for lieu tenant governor. He and Mr. Mc Dermott are both from the same city and it is hardly probable that the people will support both of them and we believe the coming into the race for lieutenant governor, by Mr. Ed wards-, has virtually put -Mr. McDer mott out of the running. Mr. Bosworth has been down in this end of the state for the past week or ten days and has been mak ing an earnest and active campaign, but in all justice to him and to the facts in the case, we cannot hear that he has added very materially to his strength, in fact, he has not a very strong following in the first congres sional district and it is our opinion that he has not a show of carrying a single county in the district, but wherever he has any strength he will be third in the race. Mr. McChesney has lost much of his following since his trip through this end of the state and now the vote of this district in the main will be between him and Mr. Stanley, with the prospects that Mr. Stanley will carry the district by several hun dred majority. It looks now that Mr. Stanley will carry Caldwell, Lyon, Trigg, Marshall, Fulton, Graves, Carlisle, Ballard and McCracken counties. We may not have the dope exactly correct at this writing, but that is the way the governor's race looks to us at present, but as the campaign progresses and as the Mes senger becomes better informed as to the strength of the various candi dates, it will' so announce in its col umns. Mayfield Messenger. Death at State Hospital. Mary Taylor, a pitient at the the Western S ate Hospital from McLean county, died June 29, of ex haustion, a fracture of the femur sustained several weeks bro, bdng contributory.
