Los Angeles destroyed 4,300 cats
this year in the interests of food con

ident Wilson reached London too la* :
for any authoritative comment, it
was bound to come, however, into an
atmosphere charged with suspicion,
and the opinion is still held in ail
quarters that the reply would be v,
good gauge of the degree of Cor
many's military distress. An arr :. -
tice is the old familiar ruse for a di.
tressed army.
Apparently the reply gives on '
statement of news. It associates
Austria-Hungary, but not Turkey,
■with the German government. The
implication seems to be that unie; -
the German secretary for foreign af
fairs has written the message with
unusual haste, Turkey is no longer
Germany's ally. In all previous im
portant diplomatic documents Ger
many has scrupulously mentioned all
her allies.
The phrase. "To agree upon practi
cal details of the application of tlieso
terms is on its face a straight reply to
President Wilson. It was not unex
pected here, but is likely to be re
garded with suspicion. English pa
pers have said that a conference bas
ed on such a formula may be consid
ered by the Germans to mean an ex
tended debate.
Some of the most important Ger
man pepers, in latest quotations ca
bled from Holland, persist in u.iihg
the word "compromise" with ret r
t-nce to the application of the presi
dent's priniples. But the feeling n
London is that it will be hard for the
allied armies to hold their hand in
the hour of seeming victory.
"Unconditional surrender" is the
v. atchword ranch more appealing 10
the British people in this hour than
anj commission to arrange for evacu
ation. Events in the past week, par
tit ularly the sinking of the Leinster,
have steeled British hearts against a
There is a strong belief here, voic
ed even by the "compromising" pa
pers, that there are yet two powere
n Germany—one power of the new
government, the other of the arm; —
and that it is not yet decided which
is supreme.
Germany's acceptance of President
Wilson's terms in no wise means that
her acceptance will be met by Great
Britain and France. The restoration
of "ship for ship" from the German
.mercantile marine for all submarine
losses is a British principle which ap
parently is accepted by all the British
Commenting on the reply, the Sun
day Observer says:
"The first issue for us is the mari

that the German submarine campaign
should be marked out tor special
treatment in immediate connection,

military armistice is accompanied by
concrete guarantees so must a naval

there can be any suspension of hos

Of the 699 American Soldiers on
Board 310 Were Landed—17 Were
Rescued Alive at Islay, Leaving
372 Unaccounted For.
A British Port.—Pioimbly 372 Amer
ican soldiers have been lost as the
result of the sinking of the trans- I
port Otranto in the north channel oo-1
tween the Scottish and Irish coasts ]
in a collision with the steamer KasL
The Otranto, after the collision, j
was dashed to pieces on the rocks|
off the south Ccottish coast. Three
hundred and one men were taken to
Belfast by the British destroyer j
Mounsey, the only vessel which mad-; i
an attempt at rescue in the terrific
gale when the Kashmir, another ves
sel jn the convoy, with the Otranto,
rammed the Otranto amidships. Sev
enteen men were picked up alive on
the Scottish coast.
Of the 699 American soldiers on
board the Otranto, 310 were landed.
Seventeen were rescued alive at Is
lay, leaving 372 unaccounted for.
The Otranto and the other vessels
of the convoy were battling with the
heavy seas and high winds Sunday,
morning. The storm was so severe j
and the visibility so bad that the ;
Kashmir, a former Peninsular and
Oriental liner, crashed into the Otran
to squarely amidships.
The Kashmir backed away badly j
damaged, but was able to make port. ;
As the bows of the Kashmir were
pulled from the great hole in the
side of the Otranto, the water rushed
in, but for a time it did not stop the
engines. The Otranto tried to pro
ceed, but made no headway against
the gale in her crippled condition.
Within a short time the water put
out her fires and the Otranto drifted
helplessly toward the rocky coast of
Islay Island, where most of the Tus
cania victims met their deaths.
The Otranto struck the rocks Sun
day night south of Saligo Bay, Islay
IsianS, an uninhabited section, where
the coast line in many places rises
straight out of the water to the rocky
peaks many feet above.
As the destroyer neared; the side
of the Otranto the men began to jump
from 30 to 40 feet from her decks.
The more experienced sailors of the
crew of the steamer had better auc
cess than the soldiers, many of whom
had never seen the sea until thk.
As the destroyer steered toward the
steamer, many of the men leaped too
quickly and dropped between the
boats. Some of these dropped in the
water, but others of them were caught
and crushed to death between the
boats and the lifeboats which had
been lowered to act as buffers. The
destroyer was badly battered.

Washington.—General Diaz, com
mander in chief of the Italian army,
has issued a general order reminding
his soldiers that the enemy still is on i

flattering hopes of peace, but to hold
themselves in readiness to completely
crush the enemy if his peace offers

Ice Boxes on Wheels
Refrigerator cars for carrying meat are ice
boxes traveling on wheels.
Most people in America wotdd have to go
without fresh meat, or would have to pay
more for what they could get, if it were not
for these traveling ice boxes.
Gustavus F. Swift, the first Swift in the
packing industry, saw the need of these
traveling ice boxes before others.
He asked the railroads to build them. The
railroads refused. They were equipped, and
preferred to haul cattle rather than dressed beef.
So Gustavus F. Swift had to make the cars
himself. The first one was a box car rigged
up to hold ice. Now there are 7,OCX) Swift
refrigerator cars. Each one is as fine an ice
box as you have in your home.
Day and night, fair weather and foul,
through heat and cold, these 7,000 cars go
rolling up and down the country, keeping meat
just right, on its way to you.
Thus another phase of Swift & Company's
activities has grown to meet a need no one
else could or would supply, in way that
matched Swift & Company ideas of being
When you see one of these Swift & Company
