An attack ly sea and y air on two Gorman submarlnp statioi.SjS
was reported yesterday. Tile German war oiTice announced that ;

In the mid-t of a scene almost
defying description there appeared
a irenuine hlack-ax-coal darkey, a
southern Nero, who liad couke 1 on
steamships. He had made one trip
too many and was caught on the
other side. The whites of his eyes
and two rows of pearly teeth were
outstanding features as he fell in
with the steerage passengers and
walked down the anplank.
'Where you oinir, Sambo " ask
ed one of the roustabouts.
'1 am tfoin straight up t- wn and
Set me an apple pip. I'at'.s whar

In the meantime thp scene in
the steen;e had changed. They had
ceased praying. They wptp smiling
as they waited to be checked over.
They had been told that on com
pletion of that work they would be
taken to a hotel and served a 'full'
meal. They waited, but very im
patiently they were hungry.
Many of them hae relatives in
th United states, by whom thei
will be cared for. Others are whol

The activities of the joint com
mittee followed closely experiences
of the Fnited States collier Sterling
which sailed on Feb. 22. 191, with
a consignment of medicines and
matzoth for Palestine. Franco an-1
fjreat Uritian were willing- to vrant
the steamer "clearance," or "mine"

The- ship was then held, but

is now completely evacuated. As one j
cjf the party of refugees expressed
it: 'There's nothing left in Jaffa
hut its name."
Happy as they are to be de
livered from almost certain death,
these refugees are far from being
contented. They refer back, a-;ain
and again, to the others of the 1,
0Ö0 now being cared for at lerne.
Among them are relatives and
friends who they know must run
the Kaunlct of U-boats.
"We were very fortunate to es
cape an attack," said the ouiir man
formerly referred to, "and we can't
help but wonder what will happen
to the others. The German U-boat
is no respecter of persons and if
the otheres escape weil, they will
be lucky that's all."
MAJ. GEN. BIDDLE
TO SUCCEER BLISS
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2fi. Muj.
Gen. John Riddle, assigned to the
national army, was said in army
circles Thuisday to be the probable
assistant chief of staff to succeed
Gen. Rliss. who became chief upon
the retirement of Maj. (Jen. Scott
several weeks aj;o. Sec'y Raker let
it lo known recently that he had
selected the man for the post, but
indicated that he would not an
nounce the appointment until
otlicer arrived in Washington.
As Gen. Rliss will reach the
tirement aie on Dec. M, the nam
ing of the assistant chief is of par
ticular interest since army precedent
makes that officer the successor to
the head of the staff on the latter's
retirement or return to line duty.

Up to nildalght, September 12lh, during a period of

These record-breaking sales increases of 1917 over 1916 and
