MAY COME HERE Plan to Break Blockade by Use of Submarines. FROM HAMBURG TU NEWYORK _ I Would Enable Germany to Ship Some Chemicals and Jewels Here Without Fear of English Interference—May Also Carry Passengers if First Trips Are Successful. The establishment of a transatlantic •erviee between New York and Ger many, to be carried on by giant sub marines, is a possibility of the near future. This was the announcement of a prominent New York shipping man who has just returned from Ham burg. For obvious reasons his name cannot be used. These great submersible "liners” are the largest undersea boats that have left Germany. They have been di verted from the purposes of war and will be classed as commercial vessels only, according to the information ob tained. Germany’s object In this Is to break the British blockade and also to re-establish a regular mall service between the two countries. “Wearied by continuous Interference with malls, the German government has decided to try this method of transporting letters to America and also small but valuable cargoes of chemicals which It Is now Impossible to export because of the British block ade,” said this man. “Some of these chemicals are now worth many times the original value, and the delivery of even a small quantity would pay a big profit. “These supersubmersibles, 450 feet long, with a surface speed of fourteen knots, will be regarded as merchant men by the Berlin government. They will he armed ‘for defense only,’ and it Is expected they will receive the same treatment from this government as the merchant vessels of the allied nations which have entered and cleared Ameri can ports armed for defensive purposes. May Carry Passengers. “As commerce destroyers the big un dersea craft carry eighteen or twen ty torpedoes, but as mail boats they will have no torpedoes or tubes. The only armament will be two small guns In the conning tower to be used for de fense. The space thus made available through the absence of torpedoes will be used for mails and valuable mer chandise. "If the Initial voyages are successful it Is probable that a small number of passengers will be carried. Assured that the passage would not be inter fered with by the British, there are many persons who would pay a large amount for transportation across the Atlantic at this time. As many as ten passengers could be carried by the big submarines.” The Question of Fuel. Capable of carrying enough oil to propel them G,000 miles, the new trans atlantic submarines would be able to make a round trip if necessary, it was said, without talcing fuel here. If they were regarded as merchantment, how ever, it is believed there would be no objection to their taking fuel nnd sup plies at an American port at any time. If a speed of fourteen knots were maintained the German engineers fig ure that the voyage from Bremerhaven to New York would be made in just under ten days. They do not expect, however, to accomplish the first voy ages in less than twelve days. A description of the new “undersea liners" will give an idea of their capa bilities. With a length of 450 feet the vessels will have a beam of 40 feet, and there will be a “superimposed deck” which will give additional space for living quarters and in which there will be staterooms with ports. Above will be the conning tower, the bridge of which will bo thirty feet above the nor mal water line. There will be a crew of fifty to sixty men. Value of Line to Germany. “We cannot overestimate its value to Germany if this idea can be put through,” said a German shipping man recently. “It will not only effectively break the British blockade, but make the delivery of German mails not only possible, but regular. Also there would be the moral effect of knowing that Germany had armed ships for defense only and would not attempt to de stroy enemy merchantmen unneces sarily with these transatlantic sub marines.” An indication of the great value of even a small cargo carried by the transatlantic submarines may be had through the following figures: The German chemical homatropiue hydro bromide is now worth $148.50 an ounce, or $2,37G a pound, more than three times its value two years ago. In the case of atropine it has advanced to $00 an ounce, or $1,440 a pound, about forty times its former normal value. It is believed by German shipping men that the freight money on a cargo of such valuable commodities would be enough practically to cover the ex pense of the voyage. There are other small but valuable articles which could be Included at great profit in the mani fests of the submarine “liners.” Old Stump a Gold Mine. Old stump on Dover (Del.) farm hid gold mine—rings, watches, brooches and ten and twenty dollar gold pieces burled years ago. STAMP, WHISTLE. SING AND PLAY DURING TEST High School Girl Adds Figures In One Minute and Twenty-eight Sec. onds Despite Noise. Philadelphia.—Miss Frances Snyder man of the William Penn high school added a column of figures recently in a room where there was a piano playing, a band of girls marching around blowing whistles and pounding on dishpans. Other girls sang "Yankee Doodle,” stamped their feet and clap ped their hands. In spite of the din Miss Frances fin ished her sum in one minute and twen ty-eight seconds, thereby winning the "distraction race,” one of the event"* in a mathematical sports contest con ducted at the high school. There were 338 entries for seven events in the con test. Another event was a relay race, in which teams of four girls made exten sions on a bill, totaled it, discounted it. applied several credits on it and the* raced for the platform. It was a test of physical quickness as well as men tal, and several times girls who finish ed the problem at the same time had a hot race for position. The event was won by the team headed by Rose Dimitman of the Stevens school. FINGER PRINTS TAKEN FOR PLAYING RALL Magistrate Fines Three Youths, Then Orders Procedure Usual With Criminals. New York.—For having played base ball In a street in violation of an ordi nance three boys were arrested recent ly and fined S3 apiece in the Washing ton heights court. Then their finger prints were taken, as if the boys were criminals. Relatives of the prisoners did not complain of their punishment, but were indignant over the finger printing. The boys are Walter Shan>e, seven teen, of 523 West One Hundred and Fifty-first street; John Mehrtens, six teen, of 1887 Amsterdam avenue, and Ulrich Hofei, eighteen, of 5GO West One Hundred and Sixty-first street. They were arrested in One Hundred and Fifty-first street, near Amsterdam avenue. In court the three pleaded guilty, whereupon Magistrate Charles E. Simms ordered that their finger prints be taken and that the records be exam ined to see if any of them had been ar rested before. He was told all had ex cellent reputations. Then they paid their fines and departed. NO UNKISSED FUTURE PASTOR Graduates of St. Stephen’s, at An nandale, Admit Bussing. Annandale, N.

Y.—City Judge Beall on his way to court saw a young man dash into the street, grasp the bridle of a runaway horse and bring it to a standstill after being dragged halfway across Getty square. The judge ran out to shake hands and compliment the youth for his bravery. “Thanks, judge,” the man said. Then he laughed. "I hope you will remem ber this when you get me in court.” no explained he was Frank O’Xeill of 131) Vineyard avenue and was on his way to appear for fighting in the street.

FOURTH FALL OF LUTZK, Fortress Taken by Russians Has S««s Much Fighting In Present War. Lutzk, captured by the Russians tae their latest offensive against Austria Is situated thirty-five miles from thw Galician border and is a modem, stronghold erected within recent yews by Russia to ward off possible Aus trian aggression. It is the eastern an gle of the Volhynian fortress, the tw* others, Dubno, the apex, situated thir ty miles to the southeast, still in Te«-| ton hands, and Rovno, thirty mile* to; the east, having been built for Its saj»-j port. When the German and Austic*-* Hungarian armies last autumn com pelled the Russians to retire on fi** whole 500 mile front Lutzk was one the most bitterly contested points wa the southern part of the line. It chang ed hands three times, falling last Into Teuton hands on Oct. 1. j The fortress lies halfway Ixdweess. Rovno and Kovel, on the important.1 railway line that runs Litovsk to the region Kiev. It Is this railwa tween Rovno and Kovel, the objective of the Russian attack* ever since the Teuton offensive cam* to a standstill eight months ago, for it* control would give the Russians a free hand to operate southward against the lines In Galicia. I Without holding Lutzk the Austrians will have a hard task maintaining themselves in the smaller VolUjniant fortress to the southeast, Dubno, and once Dubno has fallen the road is o>au; to the czar’s forces for another inva sion of western Galicia. Such an inva sion, if accompanied by simultaneous^ attacks against the Bukowina line*, would present a formidable menace to the whole southernmost Austro-Hna gariau front, as it would threaten St with being cut off or driven to the north into the hands of the army inri vadlng Galicia. 4 The town and district of Lutzk am' of little commercial importance. Lntxlc was at one time a thriving center, witfe' a population of about 40.000, but sinew the Polish wars in the last half of the sixteenth century it has steadily dw-! dined.

In addition to the new al phabet, Dr. Lam lias devised a tels grapliic code of dots and dashes t-» b* used iu connection therewith. His syv— tem, he said, had been proved practical In a test given iu the Chinese schools. He was led to devise the alphabet, said, because China’s present written language was so cumbersome that tk proved a handicap in a fast moving world. Duties of Vice President.
