Several members of the crew of the tor pedoed Leyland liner Armenian, anions them Dr. J. S. Viso of Rich mond, Yu., were made prisoners by 'the German submarine C-oS, which sank the steamship, according to sur vivors who are in Cardiff. Those taken on board the U-.1S were picked up out of the water, after a shell from the submarine had cut the i ropes of a tilled Iifeooat, wnich was i being lowered. Instead of placing Hit ill in ciii'iiiii'i ll, iumwm i, inu i. Germans retained them. It is declared that, while the Ger mans showed consideration for the whites, they acted harshly toward the negroes. Some of the negro stock tenders, who were thrown into the water when the ropes of the lifeboat were cut, swam toward the suh- ! marine. When they tried to clamber on hoard the German sailors kicked their hands. Capt. J. Trickcy of the Armenian wa.s the last man to leave his ship. Tolls TliHUin- Talc. An exciting story is told ley Krnest Robert Talbot, u 15-year-old cabin boy and it has all the thrills of sea tale by Robert Louis Stevenson. "That was my tirst trip," said young; Talbot, who wa.s among the 37 per sons who left the Armenian in the first lifeboat. It was this lifeboat that was plunged into the water by a Ger man shell cutting the ropes. "The boat was about half way I dow n," continued the cabin boy. "when along came a shell and clipped the ropes clean. We all tumbled into the water and began swiming around. I guess I must have been in the water for an hour before I was picked tip by another boat which I found to con tain my brother. We were in the lifeboat about 12 hours before being picked up- but it was not so bad for the weather was clear and the water smooth. We all got mighty thirsty tnough, and I was so hungry 1 could have eaten my boots. All through the night we could seo the Germans tiring minutes light while they looked for another ship to sink. After a bit we discovered the lighthouse on Lundy island and rowed in that direction but when the Germans saw us they tired a shell toward our boat and we turned around and rowed away as f;ist as we could. "At last the Belgian trawler. Tres't Stevens, came along and took us on board, landing us at Milfordhavcn, Wales. "The only ollicers drowned was the fourth otlicer. Four of the crew died in one boat. One had his head blown almost o!T and another had both his legs shot away. Capt. Triekey. who was the last man to leave the Armenian, acted splendidly. Kivp Mdp's Doctor, "Two of the lifeboats were found to be water-lodged, so Capt. Trickcy had live of the lifeboats lashed to gether with the water-logged ones in the middle so that they would not sink. "The ir-T.S took on board the ship's doctor, who is on American. They also took on board two other white men. When the negroes tried to climb on board the submarine the German sailors kicked them off. "I had a mighty narrow escape be fore Triekey surrendered. I was standing on the deck alongside of a negro seaman named Johnson, when suddenly this man struck me with his first, knocking me tlat. As I fell a shell struck the deck house level, near my head. The negro had heard the noise of the approaching shell. It missed him- but killed four men inside the deck house." Twenty-two survivors were brought to Cardiff and are being cared for! here b- the seamen's union. Several ,,,,a;..i are in the war hospital at I F.ri-tol. The Armenian lasted half an hour, j after being torpedoed, according to : John Wiley, a member of the engine i room force, who snid: "I was in the engine room all the time we were beimr shelled.
