WASHINGTON, June 0. The state
department has announced officially
that an American armed merchantman,
whose name is withheld, fought an hour
and a half battle with a German sub
marine. The steamer's twenty-fith shot
hit and apparently sank the diver. The
announcement says the submarine was
sighted 7.000 yards distant. It carried
forward aft guns and flew no flag. The
steamer hoisted the stars and stripes
and waited for ten minutes for the div

satisfactory the steamer fired, the diver

But Little Disorder
WASHINGTON, June 6. More than
10,000,000 young Americans enrolled
themselves yesterday for war service.
Registration day with but a few weeks
of preparation, saw the first military
census ever taken in the United States
completed without a single untoward
event of consequence.
The manhood of the nation obeyed
the president's call and volunteered in
mass, setting at naught all the schemes
and plottings of German sympathizers
and the few cranks who have agitated
against registration. It remains but to

A feature of the registration was the
refusal of hundreds of thousands of
men to make any reply to the question:
"Do you claim exemption?" Even men
who reported they had dependent fami

certain to keep them at home, declined
to make such a claim. Apparently they

Basing an estimate on the returns
from thirteen of the thirty precincts of
Washoe county, the registration for the

something over 2,f00 for the county and
1,100 for the city of Reno. Throughout
the day the registration proceeded in a
quiet, orderly manner w ith no report of
anti-draft demonstrations or disorder
to mar the quietness and seriousness of
the occasion. The city hall, with 325

Carson Subscribes for
$106,000 Uberty Bonds
H. C. Clapp, cashier of the Carson
Valley bank, has announced that yes
terday's subscriptions at the bank to
the Liberty Loan amounted to $106,000.
This did not include $10,000 that had
already been subscribed by the bank.
The bank force completed all the de
tails necessary in the purchase of the
bonds before the close of the mails last
night and forwarded the results to the
Reserve bank at San Francisco. Many
application blanks for the loan are
still out in Carson and before the time

may be expected. It is the opinion of
the bank officers that Carson's contri
