DEAL, England, Nov. 21.—Life boat
trews from the Deal and Walmer
Itations today succeeded in rescuing
ell passenf^rs and members of the
of thfl stranded American
Bteamer Sibiria.
The Sibiria struck the Goodwin
sands late yesterday. All through
the night the waves mercilessly
pounded the vessel, passengers and
crew taking to the bridge and waiting
for aid that life boat crews could not
give them in the face of the moun
tainous seas.
Life savers from the Deal. Walmer
and Kingstown stations fought all
through the night and through most
of today to bridge the gap of swirl
ing waters and take the men and
women off the ship. Two or three
times the life boats were capsized in
•his surf, several life savers narrowly
escaping drowning. Late today,
however, the Walmer crew succeed
ed in getting a line
Sibiria.
The American vessel was only one
of half a dozen that were in dire
straits for a time as a result of a
tremendous blow that had swept up
f, d.
&
the channel and the Dover straits
Sunday night, contiriuing with great
violence since that time. The Good
win
Bands,
a strip of shoal extending
for about ten miles off the shore of
Kent 4hd one of the ocean's most
dangerous ports, calimed Its usual
quota of vessels, but the Sibiria was
the only vessel of Blze to be driven
on the treacherous sands. She stuck
fast and- great combers rolled over
her.
Pounded by the breakers, the big
vessel sank lower and lower into
the sands unUl today her bridge, on
which the two score passengers and
jcrew had clustered, was only a little
above the level of the highest wave.

German Official Report.
BERLIN, N(via Sayville wireless^
Nov. 21.—"Our infantry now stands be
fore Craiova," declared the German of
ficial statement today, telling of tne
sweep of the^Teutonio armies against
the Rumanians.
"On the Alt, some important towns
and entrenched heights were captured
by us from the Rumanians in a severe
struggle," the statement continued.
"Our infantry now stands before Crai
ova, which until now has been the
seat Qf the chief cdmmand of the first
Rumanian army."
The official statement also detailed
a report from Field Marshal Von
Mackensen, in Dobrudja, that Con
stanza and Cernavoda had been shell
ed.
"Our flyer squadron bombarded a
transportation establishment near
Bucharest," the statement said. "Be
tween Prespa lake and the Cerna

ward the German Bulgarian positions.

A patrol enterprise in the Carpath

Pursuing Bulgars.
SALONIKA, Nov. 21.—Serbian
forces are hotly pursuing the Bul
garian-German fozces retreating to
wanMPrilep after being forced out of
Monastir. They have captured the
towns of Makovo, Oredovo, Vrancei,
Rldarie, Britianik, Novak and Suha
dol, despite resistance by reinforced
columns of the enemy. This resist
ance la. more stubborn as fresh
troops are being brought to the Teu
ton's aid.
Serbian cavalry entered Monastir
from the east, swimming the Cerna
river.
In the meantime the French, Rus
sian and Italian forces entered the
city from the south. Those of the
people left in the city met their libeV
ators and covered them with flowers
as they made triumphal progress into

Stone Speaks First
BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 21.—Any
expectation that an affiliation of the
big four brotherhoods and the Ameri
can Federation of Labor might be the
result of these two bodies' mutual
fight for the eight hour day and the
unlimitea right to strike, was dempen
ed here today when Warren S. Stone,
head of tbe engineers, addressed the
federation convention.
"We are not allied with the Ameri
can Federation of Labor and only be
cause of Jurisdictional disputes that
would at once arise in case suck'' al
liance should come to pass. That is
the reason and that alone." he said.
Stone was the flrst of the four
brotherhood representatives to speak.
"I come with a message of good will
from the locomotive engineers," he
said. "We four executives are thor
oughly happy and thoroughly well con
tented, though we have had 10® in
junctions served on us during the past
live days and are expecting more in
the next few days.
Stone said more had happened to
help the cause of labor during the past
twelve months than in aB many years
previous.
"You no doubt have read of the
18,000,000,000 combine of employers,"
be said. 'That doesn't worry organ
ized labor in the least."
L. F- Sheparu, acting in the absence
of A. B. Garretson, indicated that the
brotherhqods would line up in support
of the Adam son law aa opposed to
feeling in federation that eight hours
should be obtained without legislation
when he said:
"I believe the bill (Adamson act)
will serve our purpose."

THE DAILY GATE CITY!
ANOTHER ADVANCE
IS \REP0RTED
|y. (Continued from page 1.)
tivity Is the better trench' ally for de
fensive or offensive operations. The
beginning of cold weather sees the
allies better situated. along the west
ern front because they' have estab
lished strong artillery positions on
high ground for shell blasting opera
tions against the German lines.
Hitherto It has been Uphill lighting
for the Anglo-French armies. During
the winter they will haye more down
hill work to do.
Along the Greek frontier, the Ad
vantage also rests with the allies, be
cause their lines of overland com
munications are much shorter than
the German-Bulgarian lines. This fact
is capable of very effective use when
winter storms begin to interfere with
the smooth movement of supplies to
the front.
In Rumania the advantage is with
the Teutons, because the Rumanians
can obtain guns and ammunition only
from Russia, where the supply is not
sufficient to equip properly the Rus
sian forces.
The war's third winter may be a
supreme test, not only of the fighting
power of the belligerents, but of the
staying power of their non-combatant
populations as well. This is the" rear
son why Great Britain, France, Rus
sia and Germany are now putting in
to effect new systems, fbr conserving
the food appply and Industrial power.
Belligerents seem to realize some ef
fort. must be made this winter in the
"field and at home or approaching ex
haustion may seriously Interfere
with future strategic plans.

The sermon subject for this even

introducing the subject, tne speaker
said: "The miracles of Jesus were

CHICAGO, Nov. 21.—\yheat—Inter
est in the wheat market shoyte con
siderable abatement, and the market,
while firm, does not indicate any
urgent 'buying. The statistical posi
tion makgs the Immediate future apr
pear bearish, but the outlook for the
crop year is sufficiently bullish to
serve as excellent protection for the
trader who is willing to aWait breaks
'before buying. The market from
day to day, will, no doubt, follow the
variations of domestic and foreign
news, but, regardless pf temporary
influences, the supply, which is
hardly equal to *the world's consump
tive requirements, will go Into com
mercial channels at gradually ad
vancing prices.
Corn—The situation In corn is lit
tle changed as yet. Observers of the
live stock market and of the country
and of the situation generally, are
disposed to look for lower prices.
Shippers and consumers have very
lig^it stocks, in most oases practic
ally none, and the scarcity Of corn is
a barrier between the two. The re
cent action of the December Into
going to a wider discount under the
M4y, has discouraged ^bullish activ
ities. On the other hand, it does not
.yet seem wise to- press the selling
side of December corn, because the
prospect of an accumulation under
prevailing conditions is rather re
mote. Cash business exceeds pub
lic reports.
Oats—(Have not responded to the
weakness recently shown in other
grains. On an early bulge today the
May delivery was close to the form
er high price. There is a remarkably
good demand for spot oats, and the
pressure from the large-accumulations
is negligible.
