"Tho admiral's ship, a British bat tleship of the first class, suffered heavy damapre, and was towrd out of the battle lino by torpedo boats. Two others of the enemy's ships were dis abled.

HAVANA HOTELS BAB JOHNSON Ai WIFE ilHtOWINGIirOF : MIEHIGAH SHIP i RAISES A CRISIS Loss of Cotton Steamer Evelyn May Result in Request for Explanation and an Action for Damages. WASHINGTON. I), c, Feb. 22. That a serious, but not alarming sit uation has been created by the blow ing up of the American cotton steam er Fvelyn off Iiorkum Island in the North sea. is the opinion of adminis tration officials today. They waited anxiously for details of the disaster from Ambassador Page at Ivondon and Ambassador Gerard at Berlin, who were directed by Pres't Wilson to investigate and .eport promptly to Washington. Pending the receipt of full information it was stated, the Washington government would pro ceed cautiously. The meaner dispatches from Amer ican Consul Fee at Bremen reporting the matter, showed that the Evelyn went down off a German island. She probably struck a mine. It was con ceded by oflicials that if this were found to be tho case, there would be no ground for action ly this govern ment other than a request of Germany for an explanation and a probable case for damages. Legal experts of i the government agree that tlK; laying of mines is not barred by international agreement now !n effect. It was also suggested that the Borkum is one of a chain of islands just south of thej port of Bremen and forms part of the coast defenses of Germany. The Washington government also found ground for hope that serious consequences could be avoided in the fact that the Evelyn went down out side the war zono established by Germany and none of her crew was lost. Much weight was placed on tho explanation of Capt. Smith of the Fvelyn as to what course his vessel was taking. Members of congress took a serious view of the matter and generally in dicated that it called for watchfulness on the part of this government to guard against repetitions of such ac cidents. They were Inclined, however. to place confidence in the ability of the president and his advisers to handle the situation, .Tho state department today an nounced that pending a comprehen sive report from its diplomatic ollicers on the sinking of the United states steamer Evelyn, this government's re joinders to Great Britain's and Ger many's note on the Hying of neutral flags and submarine warfare will be postponed. The department has in structed United States Consul Fee in Bremen by cable to collect and for ward all details as to the manner of the Evelyn destruction. Renegade Piutes on Warpath Threaten to Annihilate Whites. BULLETIN. G KAY SON, Utah, Feb. 2 2. A posse of 29 deputy marshals ar rived in Bluff today from Monti cello and joined the deputies be sieged there by Piute Indians. Another posse from Dolores. Colo., is close to Bluff and witlr their arrival the Indians will be outnumbered. Indian Agent Dickens left Nav ajo Springs today with an inter preter, lie will try to pacify tho Indians. COKTEZ. Colo., Feb. 22. Kene fade Piute Indians who defeated Fnited States deputy marshals yester day in a fight near BlulT, Utah, in a light in which two Indians and a w hite man were killed, are reported in a telephone message received here early today to have attacked the town of Bluff, Utah, las night. The telephone message which came from Mont;cello, Utah, said that the small force of deputies there was in danger of being annihilated by tho Indians. Additional deputies are trying to reach Bluff, but at last reports they were proceeding through a heavy soinv storm that permitted them to travel onl slowly. Indian police at Ship Bock agency, New Mexico, have been summoned to tht scene. The white man killed was Joe Aiken, a wealthy cattle rancher of Dolor ;s. Colo., and an expert rifle ) shot. As AiKtn leu the whites, wno had been trying to take the Indians by surprise, rolled from their ponies into thf snow and began firing when ever an 'Indian showed himself. After tPM- volht had been fired F Marshal quila Nebeker sent Manco3 Jim, a f. iner Indian outlaw, to par ky with Tse-Na-Gat. leader of the outlaws. The parley !asted some time and then Mancos Jim returned with this message: "We will tight until we are all killed." Marshal Nebeker said that one of the Indian who fell was dressed like a 4uaw and seemed to be a woman. This led to the belief that Indian men and women were fighting side by side. All are armed with modern Winchester rifles. Tse-Na-Gat has been on the warpath since last October when he defied the federal authorities after l?ng indict ed for the murder of a Mexican. CANTON, N.

Premier As- quith announced in the house of com mons this afternoon that Great Britain would shortly issue a note to the neu tral powers Kivinc notice of her in tention to add food and raw materials used to foster German industries upon the list of contrabands of war. At the same time he said he hoped that Great Britain's allies would take sim ilar action. Premier Asquith's announcement followed interpellations from Lord Charles Beresford. "Certainly there will be a note from Fn.Iand and I hope a joint note," said the premier. Knglaiul Isolated. Beset by kind and sea, by German aircraft and submarines the British isles today are more isolated than they have ever been before. Tho latest German air exploit, the drop ping ot bombs on Essex at a. point about "." miles from London last night has increased still higher the fears of the people of tho English capital. British warships on patrol duty in the North sea. report seeing signal lights Hashed from Zeppelins. The activities of the German sub marines has struck panic to the heart of British shipping. The sinking of the small Irish coasting' steamer Downshire shows that the Germans are under orders to destroy all British merchant ships irrespective of size. The Downshire, which was sunk in the Irish sea by the U-12 was a small freighter of no importance. The warship patrols in the Irish sea and in the western part of the English channel have been strengthened and tho utmost vigilance is being exer cised. Search for submarines is even being made out in the Atlantic, off the west coast of Ireland. Artillery Beady for Action. In the important harbors, such as Folkestone, Dover, Liverpool and New Castle, artillery is kept ready for ac tion on a moment's notice as it is feared that the German submarines may try to enter the ports and tor pedo ships at anchor. Army transports plying between the British and French coasts, are more strongly guarded than ever before. The passenger steamers are almost empty as no one goes upon a sea trip these days unless there is imperative i eason for it. So far as known only one German aeroplane took part in the Essex raid last night. The aeroplane was seen near Colchester Hying toward the North sea coast. At Markstey some cottages were damaged but no one was killed. The home of a family named Kedjohn was damaged near Colchester. Near Coggeshall a bomb fell in a garden and an unexploded bomb was reported to have been found near Braintree. The German air raider escaped. FORMER SOUTH BENDER DIES IN DUNKIRK, N. Y. BUFFALO. N.

RAW IDE GOT AND AFT SYSTEM 13 HINTED OF LOCAL POLICE Hearing of Suspended Officers Kline and Bowman Is Likely to Develop Evidence of Sen sational Character. SUSPECT RESORTS OF BUYING "PROTECTION" Taxicab Driver Alleged to Have Been Accomplice of Accused Officers Neighbors' Com plaints Cause Investigation. Details of one of the most sensa tional "systems" ever disclosed in the history of the outh Bend police de partment are promised in the trials Monday afternoon before the board of safety of Patrolmen Kay K. Bowman and Arden M. Kline for alleged lax ities of duty and drinking while on duty. The cases arise from the action of the police department early Saturday morning in entering the home of Bow man at 727 Blaine a v., when it is claimed that Officers Kline, Bowman and Lass were caught with several women of ill repute. Evidence is said to be in possession of the board of public safety which will establish the proof of a taxicab system by which ollicers were taken back and forth from their beats to Bowman's home, not only on one oc casion, but many times since Bow man's, marriage several months ago. It is also asserted by the safety board that there is a suspicion that resorts have been warned of pending raids, and that ollicers have accepted money from these places for "protection." The technical charge against the officers "arrested" Saturday is that of being absent from their post of duty and drinking. Neighbors of Bowman ha.e com plained to the board of safety, it is said, of tho manner in which the Bowman home was conducted. Ac cording to these alleged complaints, all night carousals were frequent. Among the residents of the neigh borhood who will be summoned as witnesses are Mr. and Mrs. Arthur I-. Achenbach, 7 M J Blaine ua. Rudolph Price and Charles Duck. These peo ple, it is said, arc responsible- for tho number of complaints received by the safety board. George Morris, a taxicab driver, who was caught when the Bowman homo was entered, is expected to testify to the fact that ho lu-s upon several oc casions carried Ollicers Kline and Bowman to the pull boxes on their beats so that the desk sergeant at the police station would not suspect them. One other man besides Mortis, Bow man and Kline was said to have been in the place when it was entered by the police. With them were Mrs. Bowman and two other women. Possibilities of Bowman's arrest up on charges of violating the Mann white slave act are imminent accord ing to authorities at the city hall. It is claimed that one of the women found was a mere girl and that she had been brought from (Michigan to S'outh Bend for immoral purposes. She is 16 years old. according to the po lice department. Lass explained his presence at the home by saying that he was "investi gating." Chief Kerr claims, however, that Lass never received orders to that effect. Uass signed the charges against his brother officers. Kline and Bowman have been suspended by Chief Keri FIERCE BATTLE RAGES French and Germans Grapple for Strategic Heights Along Fecht River. PARIS, Feb. 2 2. A severe engage ment has developed north of Colmar in the Vosgcs mountains where the French and the Germans are locked In a grapple for the possession of strategic heigh!. along the.

The Germans, after being driven from their high position retreat-ed toward the east but afterwards deliered counter attacks against the French. The French claim these atlaeks were repuled; the Germans claim they Were successful.
