DESCRIBES LAST BATTLE OF HEN German Terror of Seas as She Went Ashore on Rocks to Ultimate Destruction NOT DESTROYED WITHOUT FIGHT ■tinning Battle in Which Australian Cruiser Sydney Finally Put Kais er's Warship Out of Business Aft er Being Herself Partially Disabled Londou,., Nov. 13, 3.41 A. M. —The correspondent of the "Chronicle," at Keling, Cocos Islands, under date of Thursday, November 12, sends the following story of the last fight of the German cruiser, Emden. "A four-funneled cruiser arrived at full speed at the entrance of the La goou at ti o'clock Mouday morning. The suspicions of those ashore were at o«rc aroused as the cruiser was flying no flag and the fourth funnel was obviously u dummy made of painted canvas. "The cruiser immediately lowered a launch and two boats which landed tureo officers and forty men all aimed and having four maxims. "The Germaus,.for such they proved to be, rushed to the cable station, turn ed out the operators, smashed the in struments. grappled unsuccessfully for the cables aud blew up the, electrical stores, but a general call had already Been sent out by wireless. Emden Blew Emergency Siren '•At 9 o'clock the Emden blew her emergency siren for the return of the landing party, but did not wait for them. From ashore the reason for the Xfanden's haste was apparent as in the east a warship could be seen coming up it full speed. "The Emden fired the first shot at a range of 3,700 yards, at the same time steaming in a northerly direction at her fastest possible speed. Mean while her pursuer was identified from the shore as the Australian cruiser Sydney. At tbe first the firing of the Emden seemed excellent while that of the •Sydney «as erratic. This, it after wards developed, was due to the fact that the Emden's first shot had wreck ed the Sydney's range tinders. The British gunners soon found the range, iiov.evcr, and shot away two of the Linden's funnels and one mast. Both ghips were blazing away with all their aims when they disappeared below the horizon and the Emden was aiire aft. "Meanwhile the landing party en trenched on the shore of the lagoon, determined to fight if the British sent * a party'ashore. After a time, however, they decided to quit the island. They <smj,\.kcd on the old schooner Ayesha, seized a quantity of stores and sailed away. They have not since been seen. '' Early on Tuesday the Sydney anchored off the island and reported her victory. The officers explained that they were able to keep out of the ranof the Emden's guns, meanwhile boaiiwiruing her with their heavier art; .cry. The engagements lasted eigh ty minutes, the Emden finally running ashore on north Keeliug island, an ut tcr wreck. Emden's Shots Not Effective "Only two of the Emden's shots were effective. The first smashed the range finder and killed one man and the second killed three and wounded fourteen. Both of the cruisers used tor pedoes during the fight but ineffect ually. The Sydney's speed during the fight was 26 knots and the Emden's was 24. "The Sydney also sank the collier Buresk which had been in attendance upon the Emden and after reporting her victory here left at 11 o'clock Tuesday to look for survivors. The Sydney sailed finally on Wednesday with a number of prisoners." CITIES MADE BANKRUPT BY WAR AREJKI THE INCREASE \en ice. Via Paris. Nov. 12, 11.35 I'. M.—The number of bankrupt cities hele is said to be increasing. Business in corn at present is in an unsettled condition. Retail prices on several ar ticles of food are advancing, notably p ?gs, flour, lard, bacon and meats, on which butchers aire attempting to raise prices, although the wholesale markets have nor changed. The Minister of the Interior has ordered the police to keep a. close watch on the butchers and report such cases immediately, when the offenders will be severely punished. In view of the decreased supjrties of cajtle, the authorities have agreed to permit the sale of horses for slaughter in the Vienna markets daily, instead of only on Tuesdays and Fridays, as pre viously had been the case. Ralph C. Busser, the American Con sul at Trieste, visited the British pris oners interned at Krain November 8. He took them money and \varm cloth ing,- which were contributed by Amer ican and British sympathizers. Mr. Busser reports itliat he found the pris oners qiute satisfied at the treatment they were receiving. LEGEND OF A RUSSIAN WHITE GENERAL ON A WHITE HOKSE ijondon, Xov. IP., 15.4 2 A. M.—The T'etrograd correspondent of the "Daily Mail," in announcing that i'etrograd has been made a dry city for the dura tion of the war and that no wine, beers or spirits will be allowed to be sold any where gives a legend permeating the Busaiau army of a White General, who rides through the ranks 011 a white horse. "If he looks a man full in the face," the legend runs, "that man bears a charmed life. Those whom he passes with eyes averted are marked for death. During the last two weeks the 'White General' has not been seen irt the Rus sian ranks. The soldiers say he is busy in the German and Austrian armies, walking witljJjis eyes to the ground." LATE WAR NEWS SIMMY Continued From Flnt r»*;e. 1 1 —— led straight to Dunkirk, on the channel. Attacks around Ypres also were re pulsed. the French aunounced. Elsewhere on the main line of battle gains by the allies are reported, in cluding the capture of a town north of the Aisue. At several points violent fight,ing is in progress, a circumstance which corroborated earlier unofficial ad vices from Paris that the battle of the Aisne was being resumed with its orig inal intensity. Military experts in France and Eng land have been predicting that the al lies would make fresh efforts along the center or on the eastern wing in an at tempt to compel the Germans to send reinforcements there and relieve the pressure in Belgium. From the othor fields of battle there is little new Information. In Berlin was received a dispatch from Vienna which, while stating that the Austrian operations in the northwest were de veloping "without hindrance from the enemy,'* also contained the admission that ientral Galicia had been evacuated by the and that the Rus sians had crossed the lower Vistula and occupied Ezaszow. which lies on the line of the Russian advance toward Cracow. In the Stry valley, east of Przemysl, however, a Russian defeat is reported by Vienna. A Petrograd dispatch has it that the Germans suffered a severe defeat beyond Kalisz, leaving many dead on the field. This report, how ever. has not been confirmed. Vienna states that the campaign against the Servians Is proceeding suc cessfully, and that the enemy has been forced to abandon fortified positions and is in full retreat. Fighting centers along the banks of the river Save which separated northwestern Servia from Au stria. At one position, according to Au strian reports, 4,»00 Servians were captured. In the Caucasus the fighting contin ues with severity and Turkisn reports to the effect that the Russians are now being attacked on their second liue of defense. Beyond earlier admissions that the Turkish attack was severe, Russia has given forward details of the fight ing in this theatre. Great Britain is calling for another million of men to pour into the war. A supplementary estimate providing for this force was introduced to-day in the House of Commons. Indications point to another naval battle in the Pacific. The German fleet apparently is remaining close to the South American coast, and reports from various places suggest that Japanese and British warships are drawing in on the Germans. Destruction of a German submarine is reported unofficially from Dunkirk. A French torpedo boat, at tacked by the submarine, is said to have run it down. Although the fighting at Tsing-Tau has ended, a further loss of life there was reported from Tokio to-day. The explosion of a subterranean mine killed ten men aud wounded 57. Aside from the situation in Belgium, j the chief point in to-day's war n>ws was the safe arrival at Valparaiso. Chile, of the German cruisers Leipzig and Dresden. These warships were , a I part of the German fleet which defeat ed the British squadron off the Chilean coast November 1, sinking the cruisers Good Hope and Monmouth with the loss of more than 1,500 men. Nothing had! been heard from the Leipzig and Dres den since the battle, aiid there was con-! cern as to their safety, although the Germans reported that their fleet had suffered little in the battle.

D. D., con ducted the devotional exercises this morning a: the last meeting of the Dau phin County Teachers' Institute, which met all this week in the House of Rep resent a-tives. After the close of the de votional exercises, Mr. Stough gave a short tall: on "Ideals." This talk was oue of the most enthusiastic ami inspir ing given durinif the institute. He urged teachers to teach as muah of the Bible as possible, saying that there was noth ing so dange.ous to mankind as educa tion without moral tratning. He also .-aid that some oil the biggest, "crooks ir America were college bred men. Pupils, he said, learn and are governed more 'by the actions ot' the teacher than by all the books they study. Prof. A:'o»rt, in his talk on "School Disci line From a Modern Viewpoint," saiil that the day of the incessant use of title strap ami rod has almost passed and one of the chief factors in helping remove it is the abolishment of the dou ble desks. If the tea'chers wish to have order in the school room they should pay more attention to the seating of the pupils so as not to seat pupils of the same temperament beside each other. Prof, \lhert also said that teacihers that want, to "make good" must exercise all the self-control at their command and vholtlil be more systematic, especially with the pupils that arc "down aud our." nr.

E. Beidlcman, of this city, all of whom will make addresses. Oleomargarine Licenses The Pure Food Division of the Agri cultural Department has issued for the yoar 2,361 oleomargarine licenses as against 1,908 last yoar. During the first year of licensing the sale of oleo 385 licenses were issued by Commis sioner Fonst in 1907. The figures indi cate that there is more oleo consumed now in this State since the fraudulent coloring feature was taken away from it than ever before. Deputy Attorney General Hargest has given Commis sioner Foust an opinion that license to sell oleomargarine can be transferred from one city or town to another by the holder. The Berks Muddle The State Department is giving it self no further concern over t'iie man ner in which the return of the vote for G-overnor in Berks county was made to the department. It was said to-day that the department can take no action, but must at opt the returns as received ami credit the vote to the parties as indi cated in the return. Under the return if cannot be told how many votes were cast in the Washington party for 'Me- Cormick for Governor, nor how many were cast. in the Keystone and Personal Liberty parties for Brumbaugh for that office, and consequently tine Berks vote cannot be added to the totals of the three 'parties in order to ascertain whether they may have a seperate col umn 011 the 'ballot in 1916 and can put candidates before the primary in that year. The only way out is for sow© citizen j representing one of the parties mention- j ed going into court and asking that the i order be issued that the entire vote of I Berks county be atraiu counted and ea<*'h | party properly "credited with what cast I by its voters. To do this it would be necessary to have the election officers | of each voting division open the boxes j and count the votes one by one and i credit them to the proper parties. A re quest, like this to the Court could be! accompanied by a request that the j County Commissioners Should be person-1 ally held for the paying of the expenses J incident to the recount and the extra j work plaeed on the election officers. | Election Returns y The returns of the late election were! received at the State Department this; morning from Columbia, Franklin, Le-J high, Somerset, Washington, Wayne and ; York counties, leaving but four coun-j ties missing—Allegheny, Butler, North ampton and Philadelphia.
