Bremen. No British warship has arrived, s ; fas are is known here, at any Chileaa j pari, nor has any wreckage been found i on the coast. The only information reaching the British legation here conies from German sources. It is certain that the Scharnhorst. the Gneisenau and the Neurnberg ar rived safely at Valparaiso, though somewhat the worse for their encount er with the Britishers. One report has it that the Glasgow, badly damaged, arrived in Coroncl Bay, while the Otranto escaped to Puerto Montt. It has been impossible An determine the exact movements of these two vessels since the nava! ac tion. The battle occurred in a heavy sea. The Germans opened fire at six miles j and for a time all the British shots fell short. Later when they got with ing range their guns scored a few hits and the casualties among the German crews were said to consist of a half dozen wounded. The German fire is described as excellent, though at the long range it required 400 hits to put the Britishers out of the fisht. The Scharnhorst and Gneisenau came from Australia, calling on Oct. II at Easter Island, where they took on a large quantity of provisions. British jnail steamers in Chileftn wa ters are sailing under the protection of Chilean torpedo boat destroyers. i DEMOCRATS HOLD HOUSE AND GAIN IN U.S. SENATE Majority In Upper Branch Of Congress Swells From Ten To Sixteen. f MANY GOVERNORS ARE WON BY REPI RLICANS Woman Suffrajjc l.usos Badly in Six States But Wins in Montana.
